Emily had believed that her brain was programmed wrong. She had no interest in becoming someone's wife but unfortunately the match was made. During dinners with Margaret Merchant, Emily had to conceal her attraction to her beautiful sister-in-law.

Sarah had been a revelation, gorgeous and so welcoming, inviting Emily to dinner at her and Jess' apartment. Afterwards when Jess had gone to bed, Emily had summoned her courage and experienced her first passionate kiss.
