This I will change as I progress. It is the first draft of a first story in a second language so don't expect a new Hamlet or midsummer-nights dream.
Well, Emily is a widow with a wealthy background but since money can't bring back the dead it holds no value for her. Her husband was a soldier who got lost behind enemy line and no one knows what happened to him.
Her grandfather want her to mourn but Emily stays apathetic all the same.
So he makes her a beta tester for his new game (?)!
A pain but at least she get to leave her home.
