Ghost And A Box Of Tricks

Hi I’m Taylor and a lot of people don’t believe in the paranormal, but I know for sure I do from this incident.

Well, anyway a few years ago when I was about seven or eight, I was at my aunts house and she had to go out to the store. Her husband was a professional magician and he had to go to work to do a show. He put the box of tricks that he did not need in their bedroom. Then he left too.

I was sitting on the couch watching TV and I heard a scratching noise so I turned down the volume and listened closer and the noise stopped, so I didn’t think anything of it. About five min later I heard the scratching noise again, so I put the TV on mute and got up to look around to find where the scratching was coming from.

As I was walking down the hall way I walked by the door where he put the box of tricks and that’s were the sound was coming from. When I opened up the door the sound stopped. So, I closed the door and was walking back down the hallway and heard the scratching again and walked back by the door and said, “is any one there?” and something said, “I’m going to get you,” so of course, being so young, I started screaming.

Then all of the sudden I couldn’t scream any more and felt really weak and fell to the ground. I got back up and didn’t make a sound and put my ear up to the door and I heard the scratching again. I ran to the kitchen, grabbed a knife and swung open the door and nothing was there besides scratch marks that came from inside the box. And so with the knife still in my hand I opened up the box and nothing was in it. I ran out of the room and put something in front of the door so that nothing could get out.

When my aunt got home from the store I told her all about it and she ran to the room and looked inside the box and everything; no scratch marks, nothing.
