In September of this year, myself and my boyfriend were invited to his friends' place for dinner and drinks. I hadn't met these people before but took note of a few things when I walked into their house. There were lots of antiques and an interesting arrangement of things - everything from swords to old doll collections. After saying "hi" they immediately took me to the various doll collections. These were from all over the world and almost all very old and each with its own story. Kind of unusual actually.
The couple also had an interesting dynamic, her older by 10 years or so and an intelligent and effective relationship. Odd way to describe a relationship.
Anyway, drinks first. Lots of chit chat. Nothing unusual. Dinner was the same. Then came dessert. Tasty and by this time I was pretty comfortable with them. Then I heard a noise.
The four of us were sitting at the table and the noise was loud enough for everyone to hear, but they didn't react. It came from behind the fellow sitting at the end of the table. As I turned my head toward the sound, I saw something move. It was maybe 5 feet behind this man and it was one of those fold-up room dividers. A big one leaning, folded up, against a wall. This item was swaying back and forth at such angles that there is no way it could do that on its own without falling. So I looked back at the table and continued conversation, then glanced back to see if it was wobbly or if there was any vents or other things that might be disturbing it. Nothing and it was a heavy, antique item that physically just couldn't move like that. When I looked back the second time, it had stopped swaying and was just wobbling a bit.
I decided I needed another glass of wine. I couldn't bring it up because I didn't know these people and first encounters, well, asking who the ghost is didn't seem like the right thing to do.
On the way home my boyfriend said "they (the couple) said the ghosts were really active today". He didn't know about any ghosts nor thought they knew (or were of that thinking) at all. I was shocked so I told him what I saw and I said that she (of the couple) knows who it is. That was my sense at the time though she didn't seem to notice at all. My boyfriend said "I think you were in a heightened awareness state, conscious of it or not, you were and could see, hear and feel something we couldn't".
A couple of weeks later he told the couple what I saw and heard. They immediately said "she knows who it is" (without prompting from my boyfriend) and that they looked forward to seeing me again.
Haven't been back in that area since, but will be in December so stay tuned!
