“Their friend said that if you drove through the tunnel at midnight to the hotel and called out the boy’s name… you might see him in your rear-view mirror, running up behind your car, flailing his disjointed limbs as he tried to catch you. “
Dan weaves horror this week, telling us about Japanese traditions of Kimodameshi. The folklore that comes out of Japan is possibly some of the best and most terrifying. In the summer months, they celebrate a season of hauntings. What do two friends get themselves into when they try to complete a test of courage? Then back to the states to famously haunted Biltmore Hotel in Miami. A honeymoon gone sideways when a very strong message is sent to the lovebirds that they aren’t welcome. A hotel steeped in history and crazy stories, this haunted hotel story is a classic.
Lynze knows Dan and others will be divided on her first story, sharing the tale of a possibly powerful crystal that doesn’t seem to be doing anyone any good. Can a spirit or entity attach itself so strongly to an item that the affected person just won’t abandon it? Then, a really, really tough story of a haunted house that ends in tragedy. CAUTION! Please be advised that this story is graphic.

Opening Sumerian protection spell (adapted):
“Whether thou art a ghost that hath come from the earth, or a phantom of night that hath no home… or one that lieth dead in the desert… or a ghost unburied… or a demon or a ghoul… Whatever thou be until thou art removed… thou shalt find here no water to drink… Thou shalt not stretch forth thy hand to our own… Into our house enter thou not. Through our fence, breakthrough thou not… we are protected though we may be frightened. Our life you may not steal, though we may feel SCARED TO DEATH.”
