I Love My Ghost, Nano


I read a lot of ghost stories about scary spirits that haunt you, so this might be a change for most readers here.

At about 14, I lived in an apartment centre in downtown Norfolk with my mom. After a few weeks moving in, I started school, and I hated being the new guy.

The first night was on a Friday, I don't remember the day, but I was freaked out. The school week was over and I was very tired, I was almost asleep when I heard a woman's voice. I thought it was my mom, but it was too femanine. I tried to sleep a second time, but when I heard the voice a second time, I was freaked, turned all the lights on and woke-up my mom, I asked her if she heard a voice, of course she didn't.

That night I didn't sleep a wink. I waited for the voice, but it never came. Since I kind of believed in ghosts and stuff, I asked the landowner next day if anybody died in the apartment, he said no; he never had any problems with our apartment. I wanted answers so I stayed home the rest of the day and got my mom to stay at her friend's house that night. I turned out the lights and stuff like I heard you have to, and she came back. This time I expected her to give me a message or hurt me, but that wasn't the case. I tried to talk to her, but she didn't speak, I felt like giving up and accepting I was crazy. I lay on my bed and looked at the ceiling with the lights off that seemed to have done something. I heard a humming and calm murmur, which was all I needed to prove it to me.

Sunday my mom came back, I didn't tell her what happened but I tried again that night. The ghost returned, and she sounded a whole lot open, I swore she said "Hello". From that day forward, I tried to contact her every night, sometimes she would never show-up, but most of the time she just whispered or brushed by me. I named her Nano because when I ask her name, I get no response, and I like that name.

At school I talk about it like its a joke, but I know she's really there. Two and a half years later my mom wanted to move to TN, I was VERY sad with that news. The next month I tried to explain to Nano that I was leaving, but I could tell she couldn't understand. The day came, and I left that old apartment and moved into a three-room house in Willomson County, I took the upstairs room and just sat around for a few days. I missed Nano, and I thought id never be happy without her company. But on June 14, 2008, that night... She came back, best day of my life. I now live in an apartment in Willomson County; Nano speaks more clearly and some nights lies with me and rubs my head. Not that I'm crazy or anti-social, but I don't date due to her might leaving me. I shared this story because not-only its true, I wanted to show the other side of ghosts.

Hmmmmmmm yea I have a similar experience except I'm still freaked out about seeing... Them and to bored4life I'm not trying to be rude but yea they're cool and all but once you finally see one your like are you frikin serious when I saw one for the first and second time in my life which has been very very short I am only twelve but when I saw one and I was being stupid and told my mom who doesn't believe me. My dad says he'll protect me but he's always at work and when he gets home he's passed out. It gets lonely sometimes and I have to watch my back every second and people see me staring at nothing and they assume"oh she's one of those creepy psychic people. Better stay away" whoever you may be. Be thankful that you don't have to hug a bible out of fear at night and worry what might happen during devil's hour and stay up until it passes and then see something pull at your blanket and your like OH CRAP NOT AGAIN! And start yelling to leave you alone. Just thought you'd like to know I never wanted this and I gotta pray nothing attempts to hurts me at night God bless~Katherine~ ❤ ❤ ❤

It is always touching to hear a story about people that have attachments to spirits. The relationship you share with Nano is not something most people get to experience. Cherish every moment of it. As for why she doesn't seem to say much, perhaps it is because she simply doesn't have the energy required to do so. It is known that spirits manifest themselves by using energy from their surroundings. What I would suggest doing is getting a couple of car batteries and bringing them up to your room. Then talk to Nano and tell her that she can use the car batteries to manifest herself.

Hope this helps!

A relationship with those who are not dead, nor alive. Nano likes you, she loves having you around. Every second you are with her she feels happy. And you stand by her, in a way that some wouldn't.

Wow! I have never heard of an experience such as yours. Has there ever been a time when you were afraid of her or has she ever spoken anything that you understood?

Cool and creepy at the same time, thanks for sharing your story.

Wow! I had a similar experience like yours since I was a kid. Unfortunately, he left without saying a word. It would be nice to have such wonderful friend even when we grow old. Don't you think so?

Wow Nano sounds awesome. Nano is a awesome name. Perhaps she was confused that how you said you were leaving, but she was going to be around even after the move.

What sort of emotions do you feel when Nano is around? Does she seem to like being named Nano? Do you think Nano might be a Guardian Angel? Have you ever seen her apparation?
I'm glad that not everybody has to see the bad sides to the paranormal. 😁

God Bless.

And how long have you been talking to Nano?
Does this mean you are really assuming that she's somekind of your girlfriend? No offense... 😕
