is struggling to keep his job due to a lack of captivating stories for their paper. After having

nights at with an aim to find a story in the town. He meets Frances, who runs the BnB, she
gives him the only room in the BnB. Frances is a motherly figure, overly caring and smiley,
wearing lots of accessories and bright colours, she sticks photos of previous guests in the
