    When i was in highschool, my mother and i shared a cellphone. after about a year she eventually got her own and gave me the one we were sharing. This phone was 4 or 5 inches tall, without pulling up the antenna, and a couple inches wide. my friends would joke with me asking, “did you bring your house phone to the mall?” it was a sprint dinosaur. it worked though, and i was grateful for that.

    every once in awhile it would give me problems, i always chalked them up to the fact that it was over 10 years old. sometimes i would get phantom voicemails of white noise, without anyone calling me. they would just show up on my screen.

    then the little girl called. i didn’t recognize the number. she would call and leave me voicemails looking for her daddy, she sounded like she was 7 or 8. she would beg and whimper on the phone, “please, please” she would say. “please daddy let me see you, where are you, can you hear me”. i thought if i just ignored the calls she would stop. maybe she had the wrong number, maybe it was a joke.

    when the calls didn’t stop i called the number back. it went to an answering machine at a car repair center. everytime i tried to call back i got the same answering machine, i couldn’t reach her, she could only reach me. thoroughly creeped out i had my boyfriend answer the phone the next time she called. he had tears in his eyes by the time he hung up. he said when he told her he wasn’t her daddy she cried. he said she must’ve had the wrong number. after that i never had a call from her again, but every once in awhile i would still get a random white noise voicemail.

    The events I am about to chronicle are true. I lived it. It concerns a house that was haunted and I was called in to cleanse it. Personally, I don’t find it all that creepy, but others found it terrifying.

    The short about me is I am an artist and artisan, and at the time, I was making armor for renaissance fairs. I am also a Wiccan priest and I am good at what I do.

    At this time I was working a fair in New Jersey and as usual, I was dating a local girl who also happened to be a practicing witch. One day, she tells me that a couple of friends of hers are afraid their house is haunted, and they are worried because the activity seems to be centering around their 2 year old daughter. She wants me to see if there is anything I can do, so I agree to take a look. Now, to be honest, I have checked out a lot of “hauntings” and 95% (or more) of the time it’s really no more than the active imaginations of the people involved so I go into this not expecting a lot. Me and the young lady I am dating, Christine, arrive and it’s one of them neighborhoods where all the houses look alike in almost a gated community sort of setting.

    We’re hanging out for a couple hours and they tell me all things that are supposedly going on. Frankly, I don’t really recall the details, and at the time I didn’t really care that much. It was the usual kind of stuff ya hear; shadows in the corner of the eye, the daughter saying she’s seen people in her room…The usual stuff.

    At one point we clearly hear foot steps over head. Not a dull “thump thump thump,” but actual heel to toe foot steps. Now, there is one room up stairs and the only way in or out is up a single flight of stairs, so as soon as we hear this and I see the look on the couples face, I bolt up the stairs as fast as I can, and there is nothing (sadly no furniture either hehe) but an empty room: bare wood floors and nothing else. Well, okay… I’m convinced they have something, so I prepare to perform a cleansing ritual.

    I have everything I need and I ask them to leave me alone for 15 or 20 minutes so I can meditate. When I am ready they come back and I have them lead me on a tour of the place and I cleanse each and every room starting at their daughter’s room. When I have the whole place cleared I go outside to seal the place so the spirits can’t return.

    Now this is the part I love about this. See, it was a really beautiful night. and as soon as I sealed the first window, a wind picked up a little. As I did the next window and door it had picked up to a pretty strong wind. With each of the next 3 windows, the wind got stronger and stronger, so by the time I was about to seal the last window the wind was whipping my shirt.

    Now, it’s obvious, (to me at least) that something is really pissed that I’m doing this, so I’m laughing maniacally, and of course everyone else is kinda freaking out a little. Well as soon as I sealed the last window, the wind just died.

    This convinced me I had won but I think it freaked everyone else out more. I recount this story mainly because of all the legitimate hauntings I have dealt with, this was the only time that I had an effects show worthy of a Hollywood production.

    I’m not really scared of these things. I know how to handle them and it isn’t really all that hard, but it did frighten the others around me at the time.

    When I was about sixteen years old I made a ouija board out of glass for a friend of my named Laura who I was very fond of. The night I was done I went to bed wondering if this thing would actually work. That was the night of my very first night terro. It felt as though I was being held down by some strong force! I struggled to move but nothing worked… I couldn’t breathe. The sound coming from the ouija glass was the sound of that thing you put your hands on that moves over the letters, it was spinning out of control! Just then I felt a strange presence lift me up from the bed. My poor little brother on the bunk above me was sound asleep and didn’t have a clue I was floating right towards him. My nose pressed against the unsanded wood frame of the top matress as my heart raced at an unusual rate. I was helpless… suspended in the air with nothing to do but accept whatever fate was about to befall me. Just then that thing on the ouija glass flew across the room hitting over my Beatles music collection and my body dropped! I inhaled as someone who just got saved from drowning would and and opened. My eyes to a most horrible fright. This face that looked as though it was put together with puzzle pieces made out of skin was staring right into my eyes. Before I had a chance to react it quickly pulled away into the darkness, laughing. Was it a dream? I looked over at my old Beatles albums all over the floor and knew it wasn’t. There was a tenderness on my left arm. I looked down to see burn maeks in some foreign, egyptian looking language. Later, my friends and I investigated this writing and learned it was the name Fatima… wheb telling my brother a few days later about my markings, he told me he saw me sitting in the corner as though I was possesed lighting the end of a metal coat hanger and burning my own arm!!!
