Uninvited guests

The sound of a car sweeping by. Into the next empty room. I go in to investigate and there are a man and a woman looking around and a small child somewhere. I ask what they want. The man is very tall and stocky, whereas I seem to be far below, near the floor. He says something but I can't make out the words. I tell him I can't understand what he's saying. The woman takes a step forward. She is even bigger than him. The child whizzes by below, out of sight, with the noise of a car. She speaks to me but, again, I can't make out the words. Except the last one might be "religion". The man starts to speak again. I am getting a little agitated, because I don't know who they are or what they want here in my house. I say, "I can't understand a word you're saying!" Then, "I want you out of here now." I repeat it but they show no sign of going. So I call upstairs to my wife to phone the police. But my voice won't work right. I try again.
