During one of the school holidays, some friends and I decided to try and speak to spirits using a ouija board. My friends didn’t want to do it round their houses, so as my mum had tried one when she was little and believed it was real (she had spoken to her grandma who predicted her result for a test at school, which she then got!) she let us do it at our house. I’m pretty surprised she let us, as we were quite young and I do get freaked out quite easily.
I live in a historic city in England, and my area is bursting with history - a world war bombing a street away, an 800 year old church and a large graveyard, huge manor houses’ and halls, a legend of an underground tunnel used in the war under the road outside my house, which supposedly had a dead woman in side, - my neighbour even found the entrance to the tunnel in her house, my old middle school down the road is also old and Victorian, the whole area is just a pocket of believed sightings and history, and what we thought would be interesting spirits.
