I think I’ve seen a ghost too! One Saturday last autumn my friend Tom and I went walking in the mountains. We planned to stay at a village hotel that night, but late in the afternoon we lost our way Suddenly we saw a small stone cottage and stopped to ask for directions. А litt1е old lady dressed in an old-fashioned cap and long dress came to the door. Smiling sweetly, she invited us inside.
We ate a huge meal in her cosy kitchen. Then, the old lady very kindly insisted we stay the night. The next morning we stopped for a coffee at the village hotel. The hotel owner wasn’t surprised when he heard our story.
“Many hikers have stayed with old Mrs Herne.” he said. “She’s been dead for eighty years and her cottage has stood empty ever since!” We felt really scared when he said that.
