Once upon a time, there was a trading ship making its way to Europe. Little did the shipmen know, there was a rat infected with the bubonic plague, a deadly disease, on the ship. Fleas swarmed around and fed on the infected rat and spread the disease...
The disease spread from the shipmen to the people within days. To the people, it seemed as if death was cornering them and was inevitable.
People were devastated, as their loved ones were dying within a span of a few days. From old to young and rich to poor, everyone was dying. Some were confused, some were hurt, and some were even furious at this mysterious plague.
One teenager by the name of Edward Bennett was especially devastated. Everyone in his family died, including his father. Not only that but EVERYONE in his village died. He sat and mourned for hours upon hours.
Before everyone died, he heard of some of the rich folks escaped the plague-ridden towns with the doctors... so he set out on a long journey. After a few days of hard traveling, he finally reached what seemed like one of the rich folks' hideaways.
He walked inside, anticipating the wealthy folks' appearance. After roaming the castle for what seemed like hours, Bennett finally found what he was looking for, a rich folk!
