Mrs. Jenkins was a middle-aged lady who had lived in her quaint little cottage for over 20 years. She had always loved the peacefulness of the countryside and the friendly neighbors who surrounded her. But one day, everything changed.

It all started when Mrs. Jenkins decided to renovate her attic. She had always avoided going up there, as it was filled with old boxes and clutter from past decades. But now, she wanted to turn it into a cozy reading nook.

As she began to clear out the attic, she noticed an eerie feeling creeping over her. She couldn't quite put her finger on what was causing it, but she knew something wasn't right. She shrugged it off and continued with her work.

But as she dug deeper into the attic, she began to notice strange things happening around her. Objects would move on their own, doors would creak open and shut, and she could have sworn she heard whispers in her ear.

Mrs. Jenkins tried to ignore the strange occurrences, thinking it was just her imagination. But as the days went on, they only became more frequent and intense. She started to feel like she was being watched, and she couldn't shake the feeling of dread that hung over her.

One night, as she lay in bed, she heard a voice calling out to her. It was a soft, ethereal voice, and it seemed to be coming from right next to her. She sat up in bed, her heart pounding in her chest. And then, she saw it. A ghostly figure was standing at the foot of her bed.

Mrs. Jenkins was paralyzed with fear. She couldn't move or speak, and all she could do was stare at the ghost in horror. The ghost seemed to be a woman, and she had a sad look on her face. She seemed to be trying to communicate something to Mrs. Jenkins, but she couldn't understand what it was.

After what felt like an eternity, the ghost finally disappeared. Mrs. Jenkins lay in bed, her heart still pounding. She knew she had to tell someone about what had just happened, but she was too scared to speak of it.

The next day, she confided in her neighbor, who listened patiently to her story. Her neighbor suggested she speak with a psychic or medium to try to communicate with the ghost. Mrs. Jenkins was hesitant at first, but she knew she needed answers.

She contacted a local psychic, who came to her house and performed a seance. During the seance, the ghost of the woman appeared again and this time she was able to communicate. It turns out the ghost was the previous owner of the cottage, who had passed away in the attic. She explained that she had always loved the cottage and couldn't bear to leave it. She had been trying to communicate with Mrs. Jenkins to tell her that she was not alone in the house and to not be afraid.

Mrs. Jenkins was relieved and grateful to finally understand the strange occurrences in her home. She and the ghost were able to an understanding and the ghost finally found peace.

Mrs. Jenkins finished her renovation of the attic and made it her cozy reading nook. Now when she goes there, she feels the presence of the ghost as a comforting one. She would often talk to the ghost and even would leave a chair empty for her during her tea time, enjoying the company of her ghostly friend.
