Part 4: The Final Chapter...
To whomever has been following me as I recount my experience, thank you for your patience. It takes alot out of me, to write this. I'm going to
attempt to finish, and if I'm able, I will offer my summation, afterwards...
No one was sure what just happened. My wife seemed ok. Everything appeared to be returning to normal. Several people decided to call it an evening. As
goodbyes were exchanged and vehicles began leaving, I started to clean up and break things down. Before I touched anything on the table where the
board and the candles were, I grabbed my Mag-lite. Shining the beam on the candles, I examined them closely. Searching for anything that might explain
what had just occured. Everything seemed to be intact. Nothing unusual or out of place. No "ectoplasm" saturating anything...I laughed to myself, for
even looking for such things...
We were down to four, now...My wife had made it into the kitchen and was sitting at the dining room table, deep in thought. Sipping on a Mountain Dew,
occasionally. I was putting the seer back in it's bag and I placed it and the board back into the closet. Daniel was still out on the porch, leaning
on the railing, looking out into the darkness. Russ...RUSS!!!
Where was Russ? I walked out to the road! Scanning the sidewalks and across the pasture behind the neighbor's house....Is that him? A dark figure of
what appeared to be a man standing in the middle of the pasture. Russ!...I called...No response. No movement. Russell!!! I yelled again....Yeah!...I
heard behind me. I turned to see Russ walking up behind me. Coming from the direction of the house. But if Russ is there?...I spun around to look into
the field again! What ever I saw, was not Russ and...Is not there!...Man...I really need some sleep. My mind is messing with me BIG time....
What happened? Are you OK? I asked. Yeah...I just needed to be alone for awhile, he said. Well, do you want to talk about it? I paused to let him
think...He turned and gestured that I walk with him. He took out another cigarette and lit it. He said, "Ya' know when something happens to you, and
try as you may, you just can't get your head around it"...I responded... "Yeah! I've had that happen once or twice." And then he said, "Well, THIS is
NOT one of those times!!!" I tried to interpret what he meant. And, I'm sure my expression revealed that I was as confused as I really was.
We were back on the porch now, and he picked up the chair that he knocked over earlier, and sat down. I grabbed another and slid it up facing his. The
investigator in me wanted to grill him with 50 questions. I tried to come up with a solid ice-breaker that would allow the conversation to flow from
it. I was just about to speak, when he blurted, "You know, I just don't know how to say this, so I'm just gonna say it!"...
"I don't know how, but your wife and I were taken somewhere. And while we were there, we could hear everything that was going on here, but while our
minds...or, or, or, our spirits, or whatever, were there, we had no control over our bodies, here...We saw Ted! Now I don't know if he brought us
there, or what, but I could....'feel'...everything that he knew and that he wanted from us, and I could 'feel' everything about Michelle, too!"
I didn't know what to say! "Feel", "Saw", "Heard"...All of these senses require body parts, but he says that they left their bodies and couldn't
control them! And, where exactly did they go? Another dimension? Another universe? Hell? Purgatory? Where does, "Ted" live????
Suddenly...my thoughts were interrupted, by a giant shadow, moving across the yard! Like a gigantic sheet flying across my property, blocking out the
moonlight. What the hell was that! I looked up...Nothing....There it goes again! What on earth could be causing that? I heard a big "Thump". Like a
boulder hitting the ground. "Did you hear that?" Russ asked. Yeah! What was it? I said.
Something was brewing and there was a definite sensation in the air. We both could feel it! You know that feeling you get when you're watching a scary
movie, and you try to prepare yourself for whatever is about to happen? Well imagine that, 10 times stronger, but without the ominous music playing in
the background...It was deathly silent...Not a sound. I was straining my ears, trying to pick up anything at all, to prove to my brain that my ears
At first, it was like a hum...And then, like a sudden gust, blowing through the treetops...But when we looked, the light of the moon shining through,
revealed no movement! The sound left, as quickly as it had come..Then...All at the same time, the shadow, that whoosing sound and the entire porch,
roof, foundation and all seemed to lift several inches off of the ground and slam back down!!! We both strained to keep our balance.
Somehow, Ted paid us a visit!!!
