When I was younger, my cousin was over to visit. My parents left him, me and my brother alone. I was 16, my cousin was 14 and my brother was 12 years old. The power was out because they were working on it in our neighborhood and it had been out for hours.
We got bored because we couldn't watch T.V., so to entertain ourselves, we rummaged through my dad's knick-knack drawer. He had his old marijuana pipes from the 70's and beads and other useless junk and I found this large coin. It had a pentagram on one side and three words in Latin on the other. The instructions around the the words said, “Read aloud and make a wish.” I thought it was stupid, but we were bored as all get out. So we were all sitting in the living room on the floor. I read the words and my cousin says, "O.K. Now make a wish.” I thought it was stupid and a joke anyway, but I read the three words (which I don't remember and even if I did wouldn't dare recite again). I said "O.K. I want the power to come back on right now!” And bam! Just like that, all the power in the house came back on: the T.V., all the lights in the house and the microwave went beep! It scared the crap out of all of us. My heart literally jumped into my throat. But we were excited as hell because we were kids and were able to watch TV now.
I forgot where I put that coin and later my cousin left. After that day, I had nightmares and thought I saw weird little things running by, about knee-high, out of the corner of my eyes and when I'd turn my head to see them they'd be gone.
Ten years went by and I gave my cousin a ride home from work and that night came up and I swear to you, he said, “Yeah, I remember that and dude,I didn't want you to think I was crazy but when you reading and got to that second Latin word, I swear I heard dogs growling coming from your hallway!” Has anyone else ever heard of a coin that looks like that? To me, it was a trap or trick to promise to give the person who finds it a wish while deceiving them into opening a door to somewhere else!
