1. Here Again

Blinking, the light hits my eyes. As the blur empties from my eyes the four walls, the same walls come back to me. I'm not scared; they've been here all my life. I'm not scared. I’m terrified.

The lattice window in the top of the door slides open and two cold hard eyes peer into the room. Searching every part till it sees me. An injured animal trapped in a corner.
