I am only 13 and it wasn’t even six months ago when this happened. This story did not happen to me but my grandmother.
My grandmother (who I call Nana) who lived with us had been very sick for the past year. One day my mom was supposed to go out and have lunch with one of the family’s close friends but something just told her not to so she headed home. When she came home the cat wasn’t waiting by the door like he normally does, and that was an immediate sign that something was wrong for her. Instead of my cat waiting at the door he came running from around the corner.
My mom went over to my grandmother’s room and she found her on the floor propped up on the side of the bed. “So you decided to play a trick on this old woman,” said my grandmother jokingly. “I don’t know what your taking about,” my mom says. “You know what I mean, Mimi was under her crib eating oatmeal and Antonio and Izzy were walking by the door laughing. While I was screaming at them to help me get up off the floor!” she said. “The kids are off at school, I think you were seeing spirits’” my mom said. My grandmother started to cry. “Why are you crying?” my mom said. “I don’t know”, my grandmother said. They talked for a while just venting then my mom helped her get back on the bed.
After a nap my mom went to go get me and my siblings from school but my grandmother hadn’t changed positions in the bed. But she was still breathing. When we got home she was still in that position but snoring, everything seemed to be just normal.
At 11 o’clock at night when my mom woke up, still just normal. But at 7:30 am, I woke up and all I could hear was crying and I just knew what had happened so I started to cry too. She had died in her sleep. My brother and sister did not know until the next day so they wouldn’t know she died in the house.
A couple of days later I had walked by her room and the door was closed and all of a sudden it just opened and my cat walked out. Today my brother sleeps in that room and my cat who was very close with her just sits by the door as if waiting for her to come home.
