At the beginning of the game, a fire occurs in the kitchen. Before the fire, Emily shows Nancy a case full of jewelery that belonged to her mother. While Nancy talks to Jane after the fire, Emily screams that the jewelery is gone. Someone must have stolen it in the fire!
Emily is a very nice and sweet girl. However, people think that she has gone crazy because she has been hearing and seeing things. At one point in the game she says the picture in her bedroom just moved, and at other times she shushes Nancy because she thinks she hears voices.
Emily is nice, but maybe she's acting nice and innocent and she's just staged this whole jewelery theft so she can sell the inn and get out. Or maybe she really is innocent. Nancy must discover the Secret of the Old Clock to find out!
