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..

5. Talking to Rose.

Its a new day. I am sat in my office waiting for my first patient. I was so exited! There was a knock and Nicholas walked in, followed by Rose. " Hello Alice, I will leave you and rose to it." he said smiling. He tied her hands to the chair and her feet to the legs of the chair, it made me feel upset, uncomfortable, it reminded me of a prison.

 

I pushed those thoughts out of my mind. Nicholas walked out of the room leaving me with Rose in the room. It was silent, Rose was staring down at my desk. I touched  her hand and she hissed at me, like a cat would. "I'm sorry Rose. My name is Alice, I'm here to try and help you, so feel free to talk to me." I gave her my most reassuring smile, hoping that she would actually talk instead of just wasting the session.

 

She looked up and looked me in the eyes. "Is there anything you would like to talk to me about Rose?" I said studying her curiously. She nodded and opened her mouth, but no words come out. She had beautiful hair, if only she could take good care of it, if only she wasn't so thin, so ill, so dead looking. "Its ok, take  your time." I said smiling. "I-I-I I DIDN'T KILL HER OK!" she shouted. she started crying. "who didn't you kill Rose?" I asked gently, not wanting to upset her more. She stopped crying and sighed. "I-I killed my best friend, her name was Melissa. Well I didn't kill Melissa, it was somebody else, it was her." She had a pleading expression on her face. "who killed her Rose?" I asked, a sick feeling developing in the back of my throat. "A-a girl, I came here to visit my cousin and I saw a girl, she was standing in the corner of the corridor, she looked dark and mysterious, I told a view people about it, they just ignored me. She made me kill Melissa so they locked me up. I wasn't mentally ill at first but I guess that I am now, my depression is what clouds my mind every day, because of Melissa." A tear rolled down her cheek. I didn't know what to say. I thought I was going to be sick. "I-I see her too." I said, hardly being able to get my words out. An expression of shock spread across her face and her eyes. "Don't to anything stupid, promise me you will be OK. Promise me that you will try to avoid her as much as you can and never look into her eyes, they give you nightmares. just stay away from her please. Promise?" She said taking my hand and squeezing it. "I promise." A bead of sweat trickled down my forehead, I'd looked into her eyes, I'd had nightmares and I had looked for her every single day. I had betrayed Rose every day and I had put my self in danger.

 

I tried changing the topic to take my mind of it. "Why are your arms and legs chained to the chair?" I asked. "I guess they think I will try to kill you or something." I didn't know what to say, so much for helping people make sense of their life's again. "Is there anything you want to talk about? anything I can help with?" I asked. "no" she said, distracted, she still had the look of panic fixed on her eyes. About five minutes later Nicholas came to take Rose back to the ward. She didn't say anything, she just started into space. Nicholas gave me a smile and left the room closing the door behind him. I had just opened my office door because I wanted to go outside for some fresh air when i saw her again. The girl. I tried not to look into her eyes but it was as if they glowed, I couldn't help it. Then she mouthed "I'm watching you." It was as if my heart had sunk all the way down to my feet, I couldn't breath. My vision went blurry and I fainted, her words ringing in my ears. "I'm watching you, I'm watching you, I'm watching you" a deadly whisper.
