Two years ago, during my first year of University, my Nan died. I didn't know she had died, but that night I saw her. She was in my room in halls and was really scared. She was lost and was terrified because she couldn't find my granddad. She was also scared because she didn't want to be cremated. What was scarier was later on after she had left I fell asleep. She was in my dreams, she was in a room with lots of older people and a few young, some I recognized in old pictures my mum showed me a few weeks ago. She had huge black bags under her eyes and was very pale and thin. When she was in my room, I don't know, but I couldn't see her properly, not like this. I didn't think much of what I had seen in the night the next day since I had classes and work to do, but I found out at night before Kung Fu my Nan had died.
I told my mum about my dream after the funeral. She looked scared when I told her what she looked like because that was exactly like she looked the last time she had visited her. I hadn't seen her for two years so I wouldn't have known. My mum also told me her body had gone missing for a bit, which would account for her confusion of not knowing where she was. She hasn't visited me since, I later found out her ashes where with my granddad in his house, so I guess she felt safe back home with him.
A week ago, my granddad died. I was scared he was going to visit me, but he didn't. My mum told me something very scary though. She got back home from work early that day because she had to go to the hospital and sort things out. When she was going in the house our next door neighbour started talking to her. She told him her dad had died and he looked shocked because he had seen his car parked outside our house a few hours ago. Now my neighbour knows my granddad and knows his car, including his number plate so he will not have made a mistake.
My mum asked if he had visited me. She told me she wasn't surprised he hadn't because my Nan had chosen the person she thought would most understand her and since my granddad had liked my cousins best, he probably would have visited them if he had done so.
