I was half-sleeping in my room and it was about 1:30 in the morning. For some reason I could get to sleep and I tried my best to doze off, but suddenly I heard a strange noise right inside my room. It sounded like someone was rummaging through my trash basket. I thought it was a mouse or even one of my family members, but I truly didn't think anyone would be up at this time to look through my trash. I was as still as I could be and kept listening. It was sure enough in my room. My door was shut, and I have a pretty small room, so the thing was definitely very close to me. I was getting really scared, and even if it was a mouse it still wasn't a comforting thought.We have a mouse problem in our house, and sometimes my dad even leaves our front door open and a squirrel might come in though its only happened about 2 times. I knew I wasn't dreaming, I was wide awake by this point. I then heard the sound of crumpling paper, as if someone was crushing paper in their hands. But then it was quiet. This cycle of crumpling then complete quiet kept coming. After 20 minutes I couldn't stand it anymore. While I heard the rustling, I screamed for my mom and dad. The noise immediately stopped. They rushed in and turned on the lights, and I told them what had happened. They searched all through my room, under my bed, in my trash can, in my closet, everywhere. They found no evidence of any paper being crumpled. It was one of the strangest experiences I have ever had.
