Ghost vanishes after painting is returned

Sightings of a ghost at a 19th century mansion have stopped after an old painting was returned.
It is thought that the ghost and the painting are that of Mrs Bell who previously occupied the 15-bedroom mansion before her death in the early 1900s. Current owner Alan Smith has reported numerous sightings of a ghostly woman moving between the rooms of the building in the early hours of the morning. "She was usually wreathed in a blue haze and just drifted around you couldnt see her legs," he said. "Sometimes she would even arrive at the bottom of my bed in the middle of the night."
The pale Edwardian figure made frequent visits to the mansion home of Alan Smith, always accompanied by the music of Chopin, according to the startled souls who bore witness. Her interest in the house was a mystery until the discovery of a long-lost painting that appeared to feature the very same person, sitting at a piano.

I had a painting of some dogs playing poker hanging in my living room for years. Finally got rid of the damn thing. Now my home is filled with the smell of cigar smoke, there's dog hair everywhere, and fleas! Still, it's better than that ugly ass painting.

This is a sad story with a happy ending and that only took over a hundred years of haunting. Rest in peace Mrs Bell.
