When my Granddad died I was only 6 weeks old. I only met him a few times. Ever since he died there has always been a robin in our garden. It is very friendly. I see it nearly every day.
He loved nature and his favorite bird was the robin. It is strange. I feel happy that its there because I think it is my Granddad. Maybe it is not but still, it's weird. My parents told me and I see it a lot.
The robin flies close to me every time I'm out in the garden. One day last Summer I was lying on a bench reading a book and I had my feet up on the bench. The robin flew and landed in front of my feet and flew away a few seconds later.
My dog nearly caught it a couple of times. I heard before that people who have died can come back to life as animals. I don't know if it's true but who knows. It would explain the robin in my garden. Even when my family is out in the garden the robin lands near them, my sister was out there one day the robin landed right beside her. I don't know if robins do that but this robin does.
I wonder if I am the only one who this has happened to or has it happened to other people. I believe in the paranormal and I have a very open mind when it comes to the supernatural. Also, a few months after he died, my parents were talking about my Granddad in the kitchen and the light over the oven switched on by itself.
I don't think my Granddad wants to harm me but watch over me and keep me safe from harm. I'll feel happy if it is true but I might never know.
This is my first story. Not a lot of paranormal experiences have happened to me but a lot to my family. I hope this is the first of many stories.
