The story is purely a second hand account.
It happened to my older sister in 2011 while she was home alone. I know it being the events as she tells them and not my own personal experience, one can question it's validity even more so. But my sister isn't the type to tell ghost stories and the way I found out only gives it more truth to me.
It happened on a Saturday night. I even know the exact time for a reason you'll see shortly.
It starts when me, my little brother and our dad had gone to a dirt track race at Sumter Speedway. We were there supporting a family friend who was making his dirt track debut in a super late model. My sister had stayed home because racing isn't really her thing. My mom and dad had been going through a tough time and so my mom wasn't staying with us at that moment.
Anyway, we were waiting for the final race of the night to start, the late model A-main, of which our friend had been able to qualify for. The race had to start late because of issues with the clay becoming to dry.
As we were waiting for the officials to get the track back to race conditions, my dad's phone rings. It was my sister asking where we were. My dad doesn't really know how to respond. He just says, "we're at... The track?" in a confused questioning voice.
My sister says "Y'all need to get home"
Dad, "Why, what happened?"
Sis, "I just don't want to be here alone."
My dad assures her that the last race is about to start and then we'll be there in about an hour or so. This is when I pull out my phone to see the time, 11:10pm
So the race ends, we chat with our friend and then head home.
When we walk inside, my sister has every light in the house on and is clearly relieved we're there. She then tells me what happened. She was in her room video chatting with her boyfriend when she not only heard her door start to slowly open but saw the knob turn. It stopped slightly open then slowly began to open about half way. My sister called out "dad?" Then my name. About 5 seconds after she called out, the door forcefully slammed shut. She jumps up believing I'm messing with her, only to find we were still gone and she's still there alone. Her boyfriend (who isn't a strong believer) even saw it happen on the web cam.
It didn't just end with my sister either. My dad told us that as he walked in, he saw my sister standing in the kitchen, only to have her disappear when he looked fully at her.
Some people have asked, "well if she was so scared, then why didn't her boyfriend come over to comfort her?"
Well, he would have... Had he not been living in Wisconsin at the time. We live in SC.
On a happier note, our friend placed 3rd that night and went on to place 2nd in season standings!
