User Story: Name Calling
This was my first time ever ghost hunting with my friends and this is my story. My friends and I were driving around town when we decided to go to a known haunted location The Hawk-eye theater. We were all sitting in the car and it said something said mommy, and furniture . So two of my friends (Courtney, and Matt) and I got out of the car and walked up to the doors and sat down on the steps with the radar out on Matt’s phone. For safety purposes Matt decided whoever goes ghost hunting with us we should put our name in the dictionary. So we put all of our names in. So Matt, Courtney, and I then walked up and were all just sitting around on the steps with our 2 other friends in the car. Something starts talking and it says property, and table. (Note it said furniture before we left the car). So we all laughed and said jokingly Let’s go get the ghost some furniture because it wants to go furniture shopping. Then things got a little less laughable when it said female, Courtney and I looked at each other and we were like oh yeah this ghost talks about Courtney all the time. (Note this was my first time ever ghost hunting). The next thing I know is instead of saying Courtney like we were expecting it says my name Mikayla. All of a sudden I felt weak at the knees, and just really weird. We decided we should head back to the car so we were walking fast back to the car when we heard something, stopped, and then the ghost said thrown. Courtney grabbed me and we ran back to the car with Matt right behind us. As we were driving away this ghost had some sort of an attachment to us and started following us all the way up until we said go away your are NOT welcome here a few times very sternly. This experience was one for the books as I have not and probably will never have this weird of an experience again, and I wanted to share it with all of you. So be safe out there and happy hunting!
