For the novice investigator this was the first
investigation he had ever been on
but hoped this would be only the introduction
as yet uncertain how it would feel
was consistently sceptic with an open mind
that hoped soon would be defined!
Apprehensive sitting in the car with experienced
members of the paranormal group
heading towards their chosen haunted location
was a moment for him to savor
as the ominous grey walls of the castle loomed
his imagination was consumed!
Stopping in the car park the walls were so high
and the imagination strong
seeing soldiers peering from the battlements
ready to defend the castle
as the rest of the team arrived reality dawned
and the investigation was spawned!
No mediums were involved within the group
more of a scientific approach
once the site briefing had been completed
the night’s hunting now under way
now it was the real action or so he thought
as for the unknown he sought!
In the different locations he sat very patiently
listening for any unusual noises
or see movements in the complete darkness
which seemed an odd request
armed with a torch and camcorders nearby
being more sensitive than the eye!
Digital recorders hoping to pick up unseen voices
almost afraid to cough or breath
this did not seem like all those television shows
with knocks and bangs and orbs
acting intelligently a manifesting spirit we are told
at this moment on this was not sold!
Yet it was exciting to be really there not watching
willing for something to happen
apart from the odd noise that was probably natural
everything to him was normal
the lead investigator said he saw a shape on the wall
to him looked sharp and tall!
But for the new investigator nothing was to be seen
told a spirit was next to him
and a shadowy figure was close behind following
he neither felt nor saw anything
the odd chill ran up his spine probably just dread
he might be amongst the dead!
The investigation eventually came to a conclusion
around three in the morning
the group not believe in having all night sessions
as imagination through being tired
could contaminate evidence that had been found
this seemed logically sound!
It was only the beginning for the enthusiastic cub
and he hoped many chances
would occur when he might meet those passed
after all this was why he joined
leaving certainly could not wait for the next event
positive in his future intent!
He knew this was only the beginning!
