The girl who stalked the corridors

All Alice wanted to do was work as a psychiatrist in a mental hospital, not end up in one as a patient. But as she gets more familiar with the daily routine she comes across the girl in the corridor and her most deadly horrors come to life but her insanity may not be the case, maybe she is sane after all..

2. First day at the hospital.

I woke up to hear the pattering of the rain on the windowsill, the couple arguing in the house next door and the hiss of a cat. Damn rain. I washed myself and got dressed into my new uniform, a plain white dress with pale blue stripes on. I did my hair into a neat braid and walked downstairs to eat breakfast. Breakfast is done, I'm washed, I'm dressed, I'm  ready and I'm nervous.

 

Its a horrible day! I hurry along the broken pavement, under the grey sky to the hospital, my first day at my new job. As I arrive to the gates I see the plain white building, the bars across the windows, the massive iron gate towering above me, the electric fence, the barbed wire and the over grown plants, untidy and uncared for. The place looked abandoned.

 

I knocked on the big grey door, the paint peeling, the dull colour, it all reminded me of sad memories, I couldn't even explain why. A woman answered, a nurse. "how can I help you?" she said, she looked stressed. "um I'm here for the new psychiatrist job." Her hair, her face sent shivers down my spine. "Oh yes, I see you are wearing the uniform now, come in." the nurse said As i followed her through what looked like a reception. She took me into a small office. Through the entrance,past the reception, through the hallway, along a corridor and into my office, this would be the route I would have to take every day.

 

The place was grim and un cared for, that didn't matter though because I was starting a brand new career which I was terribly exited for! I couldn't wait to start meeting the patients! "You wont be seeing any of the patients today." the nurse said grimly. Oh, that was a disappointment. " Just settle yourself in and sort out your office for today, I have to go now." Oh, an improvement I suppose that I wouldn't mind just settling in for the first day. The nurse had just closed the door, I had just sat down behind my desk when a piercing scream filled the hospital bouncing of the walls and the floor, scaring me to death.
