Later at night, on the way home from the movies. They stop by the town's psychic: Mrs. Simpson's house. There she and Jessie witnessed a man's spirit flying in from the ceiling. She and Jessie got so scared that they ran home terrified.

The next day, she got a shocking surprise: The spirit had rented the room for rent at Jessie's house. She was now terrified enough to not want to come over anymore.

Soon she and Jessie told Mrs. Simpson what they saw. Mrs. Simpson explained that she did a psychic meditation called the opening. Which could only be done on the Ninth hour, of the Ninth day of the Ninth month. It was to allow a spirit from heaven to temporarily return to earth. Then allow it to fulfill their unfinished business. Also that the returning spirit only had until the next full moon. Also that the spirit has no physical contact. Therefore the spirit needs to possess someone.

She and Jessie had a sleepover at Jessie house. At around three in the morning, Jessie kept her awake worrying that either of them could get possessed. She was getting exhausted and was ready to give up and finally go to sleep.

Then when she and Jessie went to the kitchen to get a snack, they heard a noise. So they checked Grandpa Samuel's bedroom and they saw that the spirit was about possess him. They screamed at it to stop. Then she saw the spirit partially come through Jessie's bedroom door warning her not to get in his way. Now she realized that the spirit only wanted to possess Grandpa Samuel.

When she and Jessie told Mrs. Simpson about it, she recognized the spirit from an old picture. Mrs. Simpson said the man in it was her old fiancé Jacob. Jacob and Grandpa Samuel served in the air force together in world war II. Then their plane was hit. Then Grandpa gave him a parachute, but the parachute failed. So now she Jacob the spirit was back for revenge on him.

Then later that night, Jessie informed her that she found her Grandpa's old diary. Which contained information about what had really happened.

Just then, Jessie got a phone call from Mrs. Simpson. She informed them that Grandpa Samuel was standing outside her house. They now realized that Jacob finally succeeded in possessing him. So she and Jessie hurried over to try and stop him.

Jacob (in possession of Samuel) informed them that her Grandpa Samuel would continue to live through him. Then his soul would go to heaven in his place. Jessie told him that her Grandpa tried to save him. So she handed him the old diary. It revealed that her Grandpa thought that he and Jacob were not going to make it. After their plane was hit. So Grandpa Samuel gave Jacob the last parachute. Then he took a risk trying to land the plane. But Grandpa Samuel didn't know the parachute would fail.

Then Mrs. Simpson revealed to Jacob that she had planned to break up with him after the war. But she never had the chance to tell him. She also revealed that all along, she was really in love with Samuel instead. So Jacob released Samuel from his possession and ascended back to heaven.

Then afterwards Samuel came too, he asked what was going on. Mrs. Simpson told her it could be a new start. Soon Samuel and Mrs. Simpson happily renewed their loving relationship.
