Grandma's Rocking Chair


In the old house where my mom grew up across the road that we lived on, there is a rocking chair on front porch. My grandmother, as I'm told, used to love to sit and wait for my mom and uncle to come home from school. I loved to walk to the old house and explore in it.

One day I decided to play on the porch. It was a nice day, no wind whatsoever blowing. As I got to the edge of our lawn and was about ready to cross, I noticed the rocking chair was rocking very gently as if someone had just sat down on it. As I walked into the middle of the road it started rocking a little faster. I was not scared at that time, more curios than anything, so I stopped and said, "Grandma if that's you can you rock a bit faster"? The chair rocked a little faster. I walked closer... The chair started rocking faster and faster and faster...

Now I wasn't exactly afraid, in a weird way I was happy. Then I said, "Grandma do you want to tell me something or do you need something"? The chair tipped over and something wrapped up in a piece of paper fell to the floor... I picked it up and unwrapped the paper only to reveal a locket.

I ran home and pried the locket open and there was a picture of my grandmother when she was my age...

Can someone help me find out what she was trying to tell me?

where did the locket/paper fall from? Out of the sky? Was it stuck on the chair? A beam of some sort?

Just curious

I agree with ghostwhisperer, she just wanted you to have the locket and probably wasn't sure how else to get it to you. Has anything happened while you have been at that house since then?
