For good reason the supernatural is kept relatively separate from the everyday lives of most common folk. Very rarely do these two worlds come across each other. Or so, that is the façade blanketed across society. Many aspects of the supernatural exists all around. However, rarely do the average Joe and Jane realize it. From waiting at the bus stop, working late office hours, so on and so forth, there are relatively benign entities all around.
At a young age Emily's affinity with the supernatural became clear to her and a mystery, sometimes confusion, to those around her. She'd talk and wave to things not there. Lots of the common stereotypes shown in eerie horror flicks. But like all things fiction, there was some root in reality. Most that are gifted with paranormal attributes are able to perceive what others can't. Those that further hone in on these gifts learn to do much more impressive feats.
