How Can I Tell My Parents I Am A Ghost?
My name is JJ and I'm dead. I died in 2016 from a car accident, but my family still thinks I'm alive. I should probably give more context before I explain anything else. So, I'm dead. I died in 2016 after a truck crashed into my car late at night. My car spun out of control, crashed into a tree and exploded. I remember it like it was yesterday. The feeling of coldness running through my body and eventually death. Now the crazy part, my family can still see me. I'm still here I guess? I really don't know. After I'd realized I was dead, I went to visit my family to see how the grieving process was going. When I walked through the door, my mother stopped crying looked up at me and screams "My baby!". She runs and hugs me. I could feel her warmth as she pressed her arms against me but the moment was short lived as she asked: "why are you so cold?".
I didn't know how to answer her, I guess I was shocked? she pulled me close to the fire and tells me to warm up. I sat there, stunned, as it hit me, was I still alive? No, I couldn't be I mean, the car exploded, right? My mother walked back in with chicken noodle soup, my favourite. She gave it to me and said: "Drink every last drop". I lifted the spoon up to my blue lips (which my mother didn't seem to notice) and tried to eat it. I felt the warmth of the soup trickle down my icy neck and down to my rotting stomach. I eventually ate all of it, yet I felt… even hungrier?
After about an hour of my mom asking me questions, I left and went home. As I walked up to my apartment building, I saw signs with "R.I.P JJ" all over the place. So I am dead? I walked through the doors and into the elevator. As though nothing had happened, I clicked the 7th floor and went up. When it had arrived on the 5th floor, a man got into the elevator and pressed the 1st floor. He came and… stood on top of me? He jumped up and shivered like he was cold. It was that point I knew I was dead.
How do I tell my parents?
