(Chris requested another color :) )I grew up in Northwest Indiana. I was born and raised in Valparaiso. Back in the day I had a buddy named Josh whose mom was a fairly religious individual in her own way.
Well, one night he gives me a call and asks if I want to go to an exorcism. Not exactly a typical request, so I jumped at the chance. We head out to this beautiful house somewhere off of US 30 a ways (headed towards Merillville from Valparaiso.
It was a two story house with a murky little pond in the back. The house was kept up meticulously by an older couple who had lived there for quite some time I believe.
Anyway, apparently a specter (sp?) type apparition was causing some problems. It started by revealing itself to their daughter who was home from college in the middle of the night. It stood around 6 foot tall and had a pretty pair of glowing yellow eyes. Naturally it scared the hejeebus out of the young lady, and she moved.
The parents really thought nothing of it until it appeared to them in the middle of the night at the foot of their bed.
After this, they started noticing books in their book storage room (a little nook off of their kitchen FULL of paperback books and other assorted stuff) were open and turned to a further page every morning as if something was reading them in the middle of the night.
So, we head into this house and I look around. There was a fairly creepy feeling hanging around, but nothing you wouldn’t feel in a cemetery type place, just a moderate amount of spooky.”
My pal’s mom had just finished exorcising the house and was laying down in the guest room. I was in another room that was empty save a few shelves with knick knacks. Suddenly I felt something.
The air smelt like someone sprayed dry orange Tang in the room. I felt this feeling crawl up from my toes up to the middle of my stomach. I then said the dumbest thing I have ever said in my entire life. Ever. “I feel you here. Why are you here? Can you show yourself for me?” I’m not sure exactly how much time passed, but it felt about like 3 or 4 seconds.
Then I hear this deep, loud, threatening growl come from DIRECTLY behind me. If you’ve ever seen a movie with a ship, and the sailors are talking in one of the lower decks, you’ll hear this deep “GRRRRROOOOAAANNNN* of the water putting pressure on the ship’s hull. That sounded EXACTLY like the sound I heard.
About 3 more seconds passed and I hear my pal’s mom go “Did you hear that?” My goosebumps settled a bit and I said “Yeah. Yeah I heard that.”
We checked the closet right next to the place I was (the dog was going NUTS) but it was just an empty closet. No water heater, no full size replica of the Queen Anne cruise ship complete with bounteous ocean.
So if you ever feel something crawling through your body that shouldn’t be there, under NO circumstances do you EVER EVER ask it to show itself. EVER.
Hope this helps your collection and keep up the good work,

Chaos Comment: Very True, be prepared if you ask something to show itself.The last time Wraith did that something threw him over a fence ! Of course he was fine, just angry and a bit muddy.
