Do I fear the doll? I wouldn’t say that I fear the doll, but I will say that I do have a healthy respect for the spirit tethered to the doll. From what I’ve been told, the spirit feels the same way about me.
There was a woman in Long Island, New York, who later said she was only trying to “help” Harold by suggesting that I contact a strega (an Italian witch) to see how I could release him. I told her that while I appreciated the suggestion, she really needed to leave it alone.
Well, she didn’t. She kept on. And from there it turned into what I knew the spirit in the doll would regard as disrespect. “You need to stop,” I told her, “before you go too far.”
Maybe it was the New Yorker in her, but she didn’t. She just kept going. “What’s he going to do?” she asked me. “You and the doll are in Colorado. I’m in New York. What can it do to me?”
“I’m afraid you may just find out,” I told. “But do not say I didn’t warn you.”
“Okay,” she said, still skeptical. “I promise, I won’t.” As she said it, I could tell she still wasn’t taking me seriously. She would soon find out why she should fear the doll.
About 5 hours later, keep in mind, she’s 2 hours ahead of me, she sent me a Facebook message. “Anthony, what is going on in my house?”
I wrote back and asked her what she meant.
“Things are falling off of my walls and flying off of my shelves for no reason! Do you think it’s Harold?”
“I tried to warn you,” I wrote back.
“Tell him I’m sorry!” she pleaded.
“Like I said earlier, it’s probably too late for that.”
“How long will this go on for then?” she asked.
“I don’t know,” I answered. “Until he feels you get the point that he’s real, and not to be messed with.”
A few minutes later she wrote to me that her 160 lbs. Bull Mastiff heard the commotion and when something crashed in her kitchen he went to investigate. While he was in there he yelped and cried out “… as though something just tried to kill him!” Then she wrote, “He’s laying at my feet, with his tail between his legs. His ears are laid back, and he’s trembling. Something really scared him!”
The next morning, when I woke up I found a long Facebook message from her saying that the spirit in the doll came to her personally the night before and kept her up talking to her. “One of the things he said was that he respects you. He sees you as a ‘father figure.'”
Perhaps that’s the reason why we have an uneasy truce between us.
Plus, I have holy water… and I’m not afraid to use it!
