First of all Nanu means grandpa. I have wanted to share my story but I wasn't so sure.
It was 1:00am on a Wednesday night last week when I encountered my dead Nanu. He has been gone for 5 years but it is only recently I have been stressing out about him. My families are in a feud at the moment and he would always keep the peace so I am freaking out. Will my family split up and what Nanu would do are my general question. On with my story.
It was 1:00am and I couldn't sleep when I heard my Nanu's voice call me. I sat up and there he was. I looked at him and he sneaked closer and hugged me. I thought 'This is not real. No way!' Strange, I know that I was hugged by a ghost. He told me not to worry and that everything will be ok in the end. He handed me a ring that my mum wanted when he passed away and he promised to her. Even though the ring was put in his coffin and cremated with him he handed me the "supposed to be" burnt, gold, encrypted ring.
He said it was for me and kissed my forehead, saying goodnight. I lay down to sleep but sat up to say goodbye because I had forgotten but he was gone. I sat and cried for around 10 minutes (sorry I can't be exact of how long I cried) and it was the first time I cried over his death (I never cry at funerals)
When I woke up I thought it was a dream but when I opened my hand I saw the ring. My Nanas' ring. I kept the ring in my 'safe' box and my whole family never knew about my ghost run in with my Nan. They would think I am crazy.
I still can't decide what to do with the ring.
Should I keep it or get rid of it where we had good memories?
