Devils -- Invitation to Write #65

For Writers:

My wife has played with Ouija boards and she has little doubt that they work.

While in junior high, she had a bunch of her girlfriends over for a slumber party, and they decided it would be great fun to make their own Ouija board. Apparently someone from the other side answered, and it knew things about the girls, spooky things, that none of the girls knew individually about each other.

Eventually, the spirit identified itself as a demon, and loud crashing footsteps ran up and down the stairs right outside her room. All the girls took their fingers off the board in fright, except my wife. She pulled and pulled, but it took all her effort to get her finger off the simple cardboard dial. What was holding it there?

They took the Ouija outside to an empty field to burn it, but even though there was no wind, all of their matches burned out immediately upon being lit. And when they finally did light the board, it wouldn't burn.

I have to admit I'm pretty skeptical, probably because I wasn't there, and nothing like that has ever happened to me. But I love hearing the story, and it's always a hit at dinner parties. :)

Do you believe in demons and devils? Have you had any experiences that helped you to form your belief?

"People who cease to believe in God or goodness altogether still believe in the devil. I don't know why. No, I do indeed know why. Evil is always possible. And goodness is eternally difficult." -- Anne Rice
