Paranormal Tea The car rattled up and down the hilly roads of Darjeeling until it finally came to a halt. In front of us, there stood a rusted iron gate and over it hovered a board which said, "Welcome to Lolaleena Tea Estate" Red roses grew wildly in thick batches by the gate and I wondered whether the old gardener was alive or whether there was ant gardener at all. Exhilaration bubbled up inside me like soda water as we passed through the gates. I had promised I would return. We passed the tea bushes and the Nepalese girls waved enthusiastically as they plucked the tea leaves. We drove past the factory and finally arrived at the house my grandmother had so tastefully designed when she owned Lolaleena. The house's walls showed black decay of neglect. Splotches of original paint hinted the house's former prosperity and I was saddened to see it abandoned in the middle of an unkempt garden. I gripped the key the former owner, Mr. ...read more.


Whispers of long dead children echoed with the sound of footsteps that were coming from nowhere. I gasped when I saw thin misty figures, that resembled human beings working in the factory, they were dressed in dazzling white robes with embroidery. "Who are you?" I questioned, now I had the attention of what seemed to be a hundred ghost workers. A chill ran down my spine and they gave me a cold stare, which could start the beginning of a new Ice Age.

They were waiting..........for what, I did not know. In one last, desperate attempt to protect myself, I grabbed a handful of dry tea leaves and launched it towards them. ...read more.


He poured me a cup of rich red tea; I took in the strange aroma and appreciated the uniqueness of this very special tea. The clock struck twelve and all the ghost guests disappeared into thin air, I held on to my granddad's hand, afraid he would disappear forever. My grandfather became very serious all of a sudden and said, "Little One, you must always listen to your heart and do not ignore that little voice that speaks to you. Hear it, it is saying: I am fear, I am the menace that lurks in the path of life, never visible to the eye but sharply felt by the heart." I nodded in disbelief because I knew exactly what he meant. Suddenly, there was a bust of bright light and I closed my eyes. I opened it again, only to be lying on my bed, back in London. It was only a dream, I sighed. I got ready feeling much lighter and more confident for my surgery that morning. I didn't know how the surgery was going to go and I did not care because I knew that the moment I got back home, I was going to toast myself a cup of tea. ...read more.
