had back then to burn trash in and proceeded to pour lighter fluid over all the glass and sat it on fire. After that he was able to sleep in his bedroom again, but I have never forgotten the name of the entity we banished that night nor am I allowed to say its name or it will find me and haunt me next.

My story begins in 1985 my seventh grade year at Delta Middle School in Delta, Colorado. One day in 1985 at a school assembly I noticed that there was a large hole in the ceiling of the theater amphitheater. Little did I know until a year later what had caused it. In the spring of 1985 our Physical Education coach gave me his keys to the third floor. He asked me to go up to the third floor of the school alone and retrieve some of the football gear that had been stored up there after the end of the football season. Now that the training season was soon upon us again before the end of the school year was almost over. Yet it was still daylight out since the school day wasn't over, and it was in the early afternoon after our lunch break when this occurred.
While on the third floor of the school at first I thought I had heard some footsteps or breathing just behind me. Yet when I turned around there was no one there since I was the only one up there. I took as much of the football gear I could carry and hurried out the north third floor access door and locked the door behind me. I knew that I was going to have to make another trip or two to get the rest of the football gear.
On my second trip as I entered the north access door like before, I began to load up more of the football gear when all of a sudden I heard something that sounded like fingernail scratches on the wall in the next room. In a panic I began to rush through getting what I could to get out, locking the door behind me as I left. Unfortunately I knew I had to make one more trip to get the football gear. Once I reached the school gym I told my coach what I heard. He said ''you're not the only one who has heard the ghost up there. '' Upon hearing this I asked to have someone go with me on the last trip to get the rest of the stuff since he could see how terrified I was.
After the two of us reached the third floor while my school classmate began to pick up the rest of the football gear I frantically ran to the door of the room that I heard the sounds of the fingernail scratching on the wall. When I opened the door of the classroom, no one was there. That's when I had a sudden eerie feeling come over me as the hair on the back of my neck stood straight up. We both grabbed what was left and locked the door behind us as we both left the third floor.
