3 knocks, multiple times, both myself and my son./u/Certain-Hornet-7319

Okay, I’ve only just signed up to reddit to post this as I am confused as hell. I’m going to provide as many details as I can because I’ve read so many stories on this topic and many are vague or, myself being a 100% sceptic on pretty much all things, I don’t find anything anyone else says to be believable.

So, my wife and I have four children. My two girls are at their grandparents and last night my wife was working from 09:30 PM until 07:30 AM this morning. So, essentially it was myself, the two boys and the dog (which is somewhat important).

So, the boys went to bed at 11:30 PM. The dog went into the room with them. A few minutes later, I went to my bed. Not to sleep, but to play my switch for a while after doing uni-work on my laptop.

After a short while I hear what I think is the boys arguing. It’s important to note that their rooms are on the other side of the house. If I can hear them, they’re usually fighting. I have to turn the noise down on my switch but I can’t really hear anything. I turn the volume up a little.

Eventually (maybe after a few more episodes of thinking I can hear people or the boys talking, or not, I can’t remember), I hear a knock. Now, when I say knock, I mean tap, tap, tap but faint. Well, fainter than I would expect. My room is literally at the front door meaning when you walk out my door, the front door is right there. So, this knock was loud enough to make me immediately jump out of bed but soft enough to weird me out and think, I’m not 100% sure that was here (maybe it was at the neighbour’s?).

So, lately I’ve been keeping a baseball bat in my room so I’m quietly trying to find this thing but I can’t. I don’t feel comfortable leaving the room because it opens to the lounge room and I’ve left the back light on. If someone’s there, I don’t want them seeing me. So, I wait. Then, nothing.

I decide to go back to bed but choose to leave the door open. I think I hear my son coming to my room but no one enters. I think, ‘maybe it was the dog’?

So, time passes, not sure how long, I was playing Breath of the Wild because the latest Pokémon Scarlet makes me want to throw up so I’m playing a game from years ago which is 100x bigger and 1000x better in all ways so, I was immersed in the game. I suspect it was around 1:00 AM and I hear it again. But this time I didn’t think anything of it because nothing happened, it was faint and it must be the neighbours.

So, cut to this morning and my son brings up the fact he could hear people screaming and there were all these weird knocks which sounded like they were at the back door. He said he went to check but no one was there. Which makes sense, this must have been the noise I could hear when I thought my son was coming to my room. He says he saw a shadow go past his bedroom and nothing out his or his sisters windows.

So, two sets of knocks I heard, my son brings it up off his own bat and says he heard it on the back door. This also makes sense from the point of view that it was faint for me as the back door is in the middle of the house with the dinning room separating the two bedroom areas of the house.

Something else to note is that our dog is the most annoying when it comes to knocking. To the point we make fun of her by knocking to pretend someone is at the door to stir her up. She did not bark at all last night. These knocks were faint but they were clear enough for her to hear if my son heard it from his room.

So, I’ve been googling all day and see rubbish about death knocks. My thinking? Both my son and I heard knocking from the neighbours house, someone was being a dick or trespassed our backyard and was going to rob us or, something paranormal. I’m waiting for my pay to come in so I can get a ring outdoor camera.

Tonight my wife and kids will not be here, it will be just me so, should be interesting. Knowing my luck though, nothing will happen.

What I will say though is that a few days ago, I woke in the middle of the night to a loud bang. My wife heard it too and told me to get up and check. The back door was unlocked but closed and the only thing I could see that it might have been was a fly screen from the boys window which may have fallen, which was lying in the ground by itself.

What does everyone think? At this point I’ve no idea.
