Your name is Bella Sabini, a baker's apprentice, and though no one has ever told you how, you know sailing is in your blood. 

Last night you had a strange dream about a woman in a dark crimson gown. She was on a mysterious ship that docked in Genoa and made the guards bring you to her. 

On your way to the bakery, you spot her guards, who start running towards you. 

So it wasn’t all a dream. Throw away your plans for the day. Your new mission is to avoid capture and determine what's going on.
