Bill Vaile was inherently curious. All of his jobs had involved technology or engineering. He’d even worked in the aerospace program and as a robotics engineer. A divorce made Bill rethink his life. He moved back home, and got a job at the same company as his younger brother. Just as they were clearing out for the day one Saturday afternoon, an appointment came in. Bill decided to take it.
When Bill walked into the house, he found a woman with her hand hovering over a group of people, telling something to get out of those people, to leave them. With his weird meter pegged, Bill turned around and left.
Bill was watching television when he swore he saw something move in the other room. He knew he was alone in the house. He searched the entire house, but couldn’t find anything to explain it. He had seen something, but what?
After other incidents, Bob came over and began to help his brother investigate what was going on. Bob walked into the closet, only to have something fall against his leg. Something else then hit him in the face. Still, Bob wasn’t convinced. He told Bill that he just needed to tidy the closet.
Bill contacted his old friend, Michael Higdon. Michael was a sound engineer. While they were on the phone, the demonic voice re-appeared. Michael did what he could to get a recording of the voice. Michael could see the waveform of the sound being recorded. However, when Michael played it back, there was nothing there. He got Bill’s voice warning him to hang up, but the demonic voice was nowhere to be heard.
Bill invited his brother and sister-in-law over for dinner and movies. While Bill sat in his favorite chair, he saw a small figure run across the dining room. He got Bob and Cindy to sit in that chair, and they saw the same thing. The three of them hunted all over, but they couldn’t find anything. They each described what they saw, and the descriptions were virtually identical.
Bill found a team of paranormal investigators who would come into the house and use scientific methods to investigate. The first thing the team did was check for natural causes for what they’d seen. They flooded the house with equipment, centering their investigation on Bill’s bedroom. They set up laser grids across the area, so if anything moved, it would break the beams.
After about an hour, Shaun went into the bedroom to do an EVP session. Just as Shaun was about to get up and leave, one of the lasers moved on its own. Shaun freaked, and the group grabbed the cameras. They went over the footage, and saw a mist gathering around the laser grid. Shaun had seen none of that inside the room. While Brian reviewed the audio, he distinctly heard, “Put it back, he’s coming,” followed by the sound of the laser hitting the floor.
That night, as he sat in the bedroom, Bill felt something like a truck hitting the house. He ran outside, but found no damage. When he came inside, Bill ended up chasing crashing noises through the house. The chase ended in Bill’s car alarm going off. Bill finally screamed that he would send the creature to hell. He chased another crash up the stairs to his bedroom. The noise was like walking into hell. Finally, Bill called Brian again. When Brian picked up, all he could hear was the demonic voice.
In his bedroom, Bill saw a creature standing at the foot of the bed. It was about six feet tall, and black. It came closer, and closer, until Bill was terrified. No sooner could he scream than the creature disappeared.
Bill determined that the dark figure was the overseer for the goblins. The dark figure was the ‘general’ in the upcoming final battle Bill will fight. Bill realized that what he’d walked in on years before was an exorcism. The woman who’d called for the appointment had scheduled a stranger to be there to receive the demons. Bill had walked up to the woman’s house years ago, but he hadn’t left alone.
