A ruby red obsession…
Rock bottom. Familiar with it?
I’m living it.
It’s a high school expulsion and a dead end job.
A future as a pathetic nobody.
But you know what they say about rock bottom?
There’s nowhere to go but up.
I’ve got an ace up my sleeve. Or rather…a ruby.
A wicked jewel that can raise the dead.
There’s only one problem.
I don’t have it…
It’s hidden in an old mansion by the sea.
You know the kind. There’s one in every small town.
A house with an overgrown lawn and a grave or two.
Locals whisper about the ruby’s bloody history.
Tales of murder, madness, and curses…
But that’s just a load of crap.
Made up to scare off treasure hunters and tomb raiders.
Good thing I’m neither of the above.
I’m just a girl trying to make ends meet.
Every story needs a hero.
Every hero sheds a little blood…
