I am always with you. I am the voice that sits in the back of your head when your trying to sleep at night. I am the one that tells you to bite your nails when you’re in crowed rooms. I do not care that you need to be up at 3 AM for work, I do care about getting your mind racing, and as your speeding through the things you did or didn’t do during the course of your day, I am going to remind you that you are overweight and you didn’t lose any baby weight.
I love the stars, the planets, everything about the galaxy. I am always looking through my telescope late at night. The constellations of the stars always mesmerized me, they sucked me in. Everything about space was so interesting. I was always was up 'til all hours of the night hoping to catch a shooting star. Among the stars, though, ever wonder if aliens lurked through them? Above the clouds even? I never thought much about them 'til one late night. I was up in my typical spot looking out of my telescope when I see a huge bright light hovering over some trees in the woods. I was compelled to throw my shoes on and take a walk into the canopy of darkness. I had to stop myself, because it was 1:30 in the morning. Why would I even think about that!? I began to just track it. I was trying to find the source of the light and I couldn’t. It was so confusing to me that this light had no point of exit. I was about to call it a night and then I saw it. Three lights in a row pop up in the center of the sky, it was quick and faint, but I could make out a saucer type object. It blended in with the sky. I was kind of shocked but intrigued as to what it really could be. I was almost tempted to call it in to the police. What would I say to them? Hi? There is a weird light shining down in woods? I didn’t, and just watched the sky instead for the rest of the night. Nothing eventful really happens and I call it a night around 4 AM.
I was looking out my bedroom window one night when I saw something a little strange. My family and I had just moved from Mississippi to Salem Ma and I was having a very hard time adjusting. My dad just took some new job in Boston as an accountant. My mother was staying home with us kids while my dad did his nine to five things. I was having a really hard time getting used to everything and everybody, nobody was super friendly, and the weather sucked. I had so many friends back home and now I have none.
It was a warm fall day when I decided to go for a run. It was the perfect day, sun shining, the temperature could be described as sweater weather, and the leaves danced with the most colorful reds, oranges, and yellows. I was training for a 5k later in the year and wanted to make sure I was perfect for the part. I always ran alone, with headphones in my ears, listing to whatever podcast was new that day. This would all change the day I ran into this non-human creature. I go running around two thirty in the afternoon because I refuse to run at night, I never feel safe here in the city. I always go running by the water, it’s beautiful, and no bushes, just huge trees and busy with people.
Have you ever wondered if ghosts are real or what happens when you mess with the dead? I did and now I am paying for it in the worst way. One day I was bored and called a few friends to come over to my house. That was the night that changed my world forever. I had a Ouija board tucked away in my attic and it was screaming to me to be played with. I quickly went up to my attic and grabbed that little gem. For weeks I couldn’t stop thinking about it and when I was going to use it. When I bought my house, it was in the attic, and I was going to throw it away. Instead, I just left it there. I forgot about it for a while until I was putting away my Christmas stuff and it fell off the shelf, almost hitting me in the head. I have always wanted to use an Ouija board, so I picked a rainy Friday night when I had nothing else going on. My friends and I were sitting around my kitchen, eating pizza, and joking around. Then I decided to grab the board and place it in the middle of the table. There are no instructions, so I found a YouTube video on how to use an Ouija board, and off we went.
