The adventure of the speckled band

Our visitor told us some more of her story. "My sister died two years ago. Or two years I have been very lonely. But now an old friend says he is in love with me, and he wants to marry me. My stepfather does not mind, and we are going to be married in the spring. Two days ago, some builders repaired a part of the house. They broke the wall of my bedroom, so now I sleep in my sisterís room. The room where she died. I am in the same bed too.
