I’m writing a story about an experience i had as an 8 year old. My mum dad and my brother and i were excited to move in to our new home. It seemed to take for ever for my house to be built and the day was here. Then or excitement turned in to sadness when we learnt that my grandpa had passed away..

That night i was laying in my new bedroom looking around my room when i saw in the door way a person almost like a shadow standing there. I was so scared i hid under my blanket and i was boiling hot but couldn’t bring myself to pull back the sheets and run screaming to mum and dad. This happened for 2 months i wasn’t sleeping and my mum and dad decided to book me in to see a doctor.

Then we were hit with more sad news my grandma has passed away. We were so sad i loved my grandma and couldn’t bear the fact she was gone.

That night as i lay in my room that i was terrified of i looked in the door way and i saw 2 shadows standing there.

From then on i was no longer scared i knew it was my grandpa and grandma. Then 3 days later they were both gone. Its hard for other people to understand but it in the end was a moving experience.
