This story is about something that happened to my girlfriend and her family. My girlfriend's dad and his wife were sleeping when they awoke and heard someone walking around in their house and whispering.
My girlfriend had heard the usual creeks and moans of an old house
adjusting to the weather before but apparently not like this. She slept in a bedroom downstairs, and her parent's bedroom was upstairs.
She was awoken from her phone vibrating with a text message. She groggily saw it was from her dad and she read it. The text said to get out of the house because
there were people in the house. She opened her window and snuck out. Meanwhile, her dad went into the kitchen armed and ready to find out what was going on.
So, he goes downstairs to where he thought her heard the noise and finds no one. There was no sign of entry. The doors were locked, and there was not a soul in the house besides my girlfriend's dad and his wife who was behind the locked door of the bedroom.
All three of them had heard the footsteps and whispering, but as soon as my girlfriend's dad went to investigate, the sound stopped.
They never came up with a realistic explanation.
