Mark and Jennifer Mathews were a newly married couple living in the city. They
were planning on starting a family together when they received the tragic news of
Jennifer's mother's death. They learned that she had hung herself in her home. Jennifer
and her mother, Susan, hadn't spoken in years due to a communication breakdown. Susan
had been suffering from mental health problems for as long as Jennifer could remember
so her death didn't come as a complete surprise to her but she was shocked nonetheless.
Jennifer's father had walked out on them when she was six years old and she had never
received a letter nor heard from him since. There was no other immediate family and
Susan's will stated that she wished to leave the house to her only daughter.
Jennifer's memories of the house she grew up in were far from happy but seeing as
there was no one else to sort out her mother's possessions, it was down to her to clear out

Mark and Jennifer were in different rooms talking to each other and packing items

before he fell to the floor unconscious.
Rubbing the back of his head, Mark wakes up to darkness. He's in a dark room with
nothing but a box of matches and a pounding headache.
