maybe b 'coz lavinia was suspicious about John that he has an affair with someone called helen and he is concealing that from her. But later when she herself sees helen the phantom infront and she realizes that there wasnt any affair and John was just protecting her from the ghost; she smiles with satisfaction.

SHADY PLOT
It is a story of an ordinary man who is an accountant. The writer is urged by his friend to write a new ghost story for his magazine. When he begins to write, a she-ghost, Helen, descends and tells him that she was also an author in her life, and tells him that she and her fellow ghosts was the one who gave him ideas when he was thinking for ideas, Helen says she would help him in providing ideas on one condition that he should make his friends and relatives stop using the Ouija board, coz all the ghosts were fed up of human beings calling them time after time, so they are on a strike, coz he is unable to help him unless the strike is over, if he succeeds in doing so surely she will provide him ideas, and then lavinia, John 's wife (lavinia) enters the room and announces that she has brought a Ouija board in auction. John was very shocked to see this., and one day he when he was coming from office he found that his wife was conducting Ouija board party. Everyone was in pair. Only one girl was left alone. So John was asked to accompany her by his wife. John hesitates but he continues, but as the play begins the word refers john as traitor, everyone is shocked and when a women (Mrs. Hinkle) further asks then it appears that a women named Helen is calling for him, everyone assumes the John had a secret relationship with a girl named Helen, and next day, when john gets up he couldn’t find his wife, she had left a note that she is going to her grandmother 's house and rest of the things will be discussed by lawyer, at this point john wishes that he was dead, and then the ghost reappears and tells john that his wife must get rid of the Ouija board. As he is trying to argue with the ghost, that she was responsible of all this that happened, john’s wife comes in, john thought his wife would faint if she sees the ghost, But nothing so happened in fact she had a wide smile on seeing her. And then Helen tells that she is not the Helen of Troy, but another Helen, an ordinary woman of New York ( now dead ), The ghost departed, Lavinia forgives her husband and promises to get rid of the Ouija board which makes everyone happy- the ghost of Helen, the maid, and, of course, the author. And hence john is provided by the idea of writing a story which had actually happened with him, hence the condition is also satisfied and everyone is happy.
