Top of the Heap!


Monday's Riddle opened the door to the spirits, and Lizzy's review of The Ghost of Fossil Glen by Cynthia DeFelice was a ghostly connection. Friday, Cornelia Funke will be stopping by to tell us about her story Inkheart, and Saturday, we always enjoy hearing from you on The DMS Wants to Know. Today, we're conjuring up a spooky story of mysticism. : ) 

This week's top of the heap: Spooky spirit stories!


Pru Morrow: Hello everyone! Fairday asked me to tell you my story about the Ouija board incident that I experienced with my older sister, Isabel. When we were young, we decided to have a secret party one cold afternoon in October, right around Halloween time. We turned out the lights, pulled down the shades to set the scene, and she dressed up in an old cloak that we found in the attic. We pulled out the Ouija board and set it up next to this fascinating crystal ball that was held by a rusty claw. Isabel is four years older than I am, and I always believed every word she ever said. So, given that, I was convinced that it really was a crystal ball, and that she actually did find it in the graveyard near our house. We lit a candle and began to play. We asked the board all sorts of gossipy things, nonsensical and mystical, and then the phone rang. Isabel went out to answer it, leaving me alone in the room. I sat there for a few minutes in silence, watching the glass ball glimmer in the candlelight. It was very still for a moment, and then suddenly the shades flew up, and a breeze blew back my hair. At that same moment, a piece of the crystal ball splintered and cracked off, then flew across the room. It's one of the craziest moments I can remember. To this day, Isabel still thinks I'm making it all up. I'm not sure who we were communicating with, but what I experienced that day happened just the way I told you! ~ Pru

  1. Ouija boards scare me. Sure they are meant to be fun and most of the time they are a hoax, but still I have read too many scary stories to mess around with one!

  6. Ouija boards got kind of ruined for me when the mechanics of it were explained in a book. I won't ruin for you girls though just in case you don't know. Anyways... it's not like I would ever use it because I'm a scaredy cat. I would also run out of town if just a single breeze came out of nowhere.

    1. Adriana- I don't know much about how they work- but I am sure the explanation could ruin them! It can be easy to get scared that is for sure! :) ~L
