Blurred Silhouettes

One day I decided to go for a ride in my new GTO,I went to a small road not busy to drive, and when darkened decided to go home but a storm broke out above my , the rain was so strong that the headlights of my car not illuminated at more than two meters I couldn't move like that.
I could look out the window and in the distance I could see a blurred silhouette of a structure or that looked like?.
I decided to go there. Arriving, I parked my car and went out, the rain didn't diminish, certainly was a structure, It was a house at first sight was in good condition, I knock on the door and I could hear the echo of my knocks bounced inside the house so I decided to return my self, Just as I was the door opened and a lady came out, so beautiful, that seemed out of place.

She said, "Good evening, I'm Heather," and invited me to enter, She seemed to be very friendly and had a comfortable look, Once inside I noticed that the house had something unsettling even creepy..

She offered me a cup of tea, then she asks me, "What can I do for you" with a soft, sweet voice, I answered that just needs a place to shelter from the rain, then I look out the window and I noticed that the rain has become a drizzle, I knew it was a chance to get out of there; I thanked her hospitality and I go to the door and she pointed me out a red umbrella next to the door, and tells me to take it to keep me safe of the rain. I said "Thank you Miss Heather, "Don't even mention honey" I said goodbye to her and get into my car.

I came back to my home. I put the umbrella on the table and went to sleep. The next morning I woke up and saw that umbrella over the table and remembered that sympathetic lady. That's when I decided to get her back his umbrella ..
When I arrives at the place where the house supposed it was, I taken aback to find that there was such a house in that place, there it was just a foundations remaining and in the middle of it there was a plaque that read, "Never give up your dreams, dreaming isn't enough, fight for them" Memory of Heather Lovegood "Lady Heather"

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...
