One night after my husband and I went to bed I awoke in the middle of the night hearing what I thought was a female voice calling my name. I sat up in bed and looked at my clock it was 3am. I sat there for a minute and listened thinking maybe I was dreaming. Then it sounded like a ball bouncing outside our bedroom door. The floor outside our bedroom door is tile, so any noise could be heard easily. The ball bounced three or four times and then stopped as quickly as it started. I didn't get up this time, I just let it go.
The very next night I woke up again at 3am, hearing my name called again. It was the very same voice I had heard the night before. This time the voice called my name twice. It was like a long drawn out whisper. Then the ball started bouncing again right outside our bedroom door. It bounced three or four times just like the previous night. This time I knew I was wide awake and was sure of what I had heard. I got up and went toward our bedroom door and the sound of the ball bouncing stopped. I went to check on the kids to make sure they were ok. They were sound asleep in their rooms.
When my husband got up later that morning I asked him if he had heard anything during the night and he said no. So I guess whatever it was, it was meant just for my ears.
Since those two nights in a row there haven't been anymore noises, nor have I heard my name being called in the middle of the night.
