Something Tried to Possess My Mother

(Steele is pronounced as steel)

The Wisconsin autumn day was coming to a close, the sun starting to set as Grandma Steele drove my mom, Aunt Katie, and myself home from a day at my Uncle Roy’s in Shoto.  This had been one of the more peaceful moments with my family, in fact I remember laughing as my mom and Grandma Steele told stories from when they were young.

The story topic had eventually turned to the paranormal, from the tale of the ghost hitchhiker to the ghostly bride that I had encountered myself a couple years prior.  Everything was fine until after we passed this old cemetery, that was when something that scares me to this day happened.

Rhode Island Vampire

My story starts in October 2016, my ex boyfriend, Ricky wanted to go to Mercy L Browns grave in Exeter, Rhode Island.  Some back story of this is that in the 1800’s there was this scary disease killing people.  So when Mercy died, her family was strangely falling ill.  They blamed her for the phenomenon, dug up her corpse and discovered her body still had blood flowing and nothing had decayed over the course of time of which she has been deceased.  They removed her heart and burned it on the stone near her grave.  Since then, its rumored to be haunted and a hot spot for sightings of mercy to get revenge on those who go to disrespect her.

Now back to my story.  I have been fascinated by the paranormal and history since I was 9.  So now that I am 18, and with a new license, i wanted to go.  Ricky, had been a lot of times and knew exactly where to go.  Mind you, I was kind of a scardy cat when it came to things like this.  I wont sleep alone without a light on and some kind of background noise, with my door shut and locked.  Something ive always done since i was a child.   We’re driving into the cemetery at 2 am, i shut off my headlights and drive in further.  Ricky then says “Stop right here, and get out with me.”  i tell him “I didnt agree to getting out, only to come along.”  we continue to bicker about going out there or not and actually visiting Mercy.  After 45 minutes of going back and forth, i finally agree to get out, i grab my emergency flashlight and turn it on.  I walk hesitantly to the grave.  Looks exactly as it does in those pictures i saw when i was 9.  But the only thing missing was the 19 pennies.  Out of respect and fear of upsetting Mercy, i run back to my car and get 19 pennies out, placing them on her grave as how i remember they were in the pictures.  Leaving them as sign of respect and offering i guess.

Don’t Move

I am a 13 year old girl and I live in Austin, Texas. The neighborhood I live in a safe environment, or so I thought.

This happened over spring break and I will never forget it. I was staying with my best friend for the week, seeing as her parents were out of town, she didn’t want to be alone. Lets call her Zoe. The first night was a normal night. Although, we didn’t like what happened the next night. We were sitting in her room that night, starving to death. We decided to look for food in the house, but we couldn’t find anything. So, we decided to go and get food.

A Rainy Experience

I’ve grown up not knowing basic things about this world. And I know most people do not know this−well this is my assumption−that spirits do exist.

I live in a country called Belize, it is beautiful and yeah it has many Mayan Pyramids and I love living here. Anyway, I am a sixteen-year-old male so hearing that I believing in spirits would make me seem a bit insane. You should believe. This account is true, people don’t usually talk about this moment in time but my other half urged me to write this.


Let me start with a little backstory. I’m a fourteen, almost fifteen year old girl. I look quite a bit older than my age. Most people assume I’m 18 or 19. I’m in my last year of high school and I’m already taking classes in college for medical school.

I’m from an incredibly wealthy family. My parents own an incredibly successful company and both sets of my grandparents are old money. My parents are always gone on business trips. I’ll see them three times a month if I’m lucky. I do sports, website design, coding, and I help my aunt out with her bookstore and coffee shop in the afternoons, so I’m quite busy most of the time.
