A friend of mine’s experience with a ouija board

My friend Samantha thought it would be fun if she brought a ouija board over to my house for our sleepover. 
At first I was hesitant to play, but after a few minutes of trash talk by Samantha I agreed. She kept repeating what’s the worst that could happen? After all it’s just a dumb old board game. 
Well that was our mistake. It was around midnight on Friday October 27th 2020. I asked if there was anybody nearby? A few seconds passed and the planchette moved to “Yes.” I asked who was there? The planchette moved to “Me.” Samantha told me to knock it off but I told her I was doing nothing. 
She only believed me after one of the candles right in front of us mysteriously blew out. “Ok this isn’t funny.” She said as I told her we should stop the session. 
At that moment we heard a weird noise coming from upstairs and we left the room without properly closing out the ouija board session. If you know anything about ouija boards you know that is a huge mistake and you should always say “goodbye.” We checked the upstairs and everything seemed in order Samantha’s parents were asleep and we decided to go to bed. 
It was around 3 in the morning, Samantha told me she woke up with a sudden overwhelming feeling she was being watched. Her bed faced the closet and all she could do was stare at the closet. 
She swore she heard growling sounds. The next day we went down to the basement and grabbed the ouija board and threw it in the trash. Thinking we were safe. We went about our day. That night Samantha again was awoken around 3 am she saw a flash in her closet and she swears to this day she saw a bony hand reach out of the pitch black closet and the bony hand had claws. 
She heard the most terrifying moan and she screamed. We went online the next day and tried to find out what happened that’s when we stumbled across an article about a kid who had made the same mistake of not closing a ouija game properly. 
We had left the door wide open to the spirit world allowing anything to come into samanthas home and we feared the worst. A demon had come in. We tried to tell Samantha’s parents but they didn’t want to hear about it. The activity got worse as the days progressed. 
Samantha got home from school one day and every drawer and door in her house was open and all slammed shut at the same time. I remember Samantha saying one time she walked to the kitchen and froze as she saw the table and furniture levitating in mid air and dropped. 
Samantha had nightmares of a horned presence in her dreams smile at her. She woke up with cuts and bruises. Finally Samantha went to the church and explained everything. A family friend of the church who was a priest came over to see what was up. 
As soon as he stepped foot he had an overwhelming feeling of desperation hit him. “I can’t be here. I am sorry the activity is too much for me. You definitely have a demonic presence.” He told Samantha who’s heart dropped after hearing this. 
Samantha didn’t know what to do. Another priest came to the house a few weeks later and blessed the house. But warned her that the demonic presence was real high and there was no guarantees it would leave. Samantha prayed and on that night it had appeared to be gone. The priest warned Samantha of the dangers of a ouija board and explained how she had opened the door wide open and there was no guarantee it would close and anything could have come into her house and a demon did. The activity however seemed to stop. But every now and then Samantha is woken up around 3 in the morning to scratching sounds from her closet. She sleeps with lights on. Every now and then she will see a horned figure appear in her dreams, just watching her from a distance. There was nothing she could do. 
 
Always remember to properly close a ouija game if you ever play with a ouija board or you two could end up like Samantha.
