Having Tea With The Lady of the House

This is my story and I hope you enjoy it.

My family and I were vacationing in London during the summer and we went to this animal preserve on this great estate where this man and his wife had lived surrounded by animals.

The house of which I speak is known as Draton Manor.
Now here is something to keep in mind for what I am about to tell you.

We went to have tea and scones in the large part of the home, which used to be the ballroom, but was now converted into a place to have tea and scones and many other pastries. Here is what you need to keep in mind, I was there with my parents and my sister and the room that we were in was very crowed and lots of people were milling around.

The house is supposedly haunted by the ghost of the Lady of Draton Manor, who died of old age. She simply did not want to leave her happy home so now she is there in the tea room where she loves to sit with young ladies or little girls and see that they behave like proper young ladies.
Now back to the story, I was sitting there alone while my family went to look around while I finished my tea. About mid-sip time seemed to stop and I felt this cold breeze, even though it was warm sunny day. I looked over where my mom was sitting and I saw a beautiful women in what appeared to be a long gown with frills and lace and a huge hat. She smiled at me, took a sip of tea that was still on the table, and vanished before my eyes. After she had left time seemed to go back to normal. Now let me tell you this, I am not mixing medications or have had a past history of insanity, but I truly saw this woman and she was definitely a ghost. Now you think what you want to think but as for me, I am a full believer.

Thanks for reading my story.
