Windows 10 and I have fallen out over updates like this in the past, I left the room to eat and discovered a story 200 words shorter when I got back (taught me to save at least).

Just want to know what you all think, whether this grips you as the opening to a novel and whether I've done enough to present the characters (one of my usual weaknesses). Thanks in advance :).
