Her eyes opened and there was a bright light. She squinted, looking around the room. All white, everything was white. She sat up and got out of her bed, which was white, the sheets white. She stood and immediately her head pounded, her head searing and the room spinning, and she had a new view, a view of the floor, which of course, was white. Suddenly people were lifting her off of the floor, placing her back on the bed, pulling the white covers over her.
“How…” She tried to speak, but she couldn’t finish the thought.
“Shh, there now, go back to sleep. You’re safe now. That’s the important thing.” She tried to stay awake, sit back up, find out more, but she quickly drifted back into sleep.

“Well, I guess my first question is, where are we?”
“Kaylie, I’m sorry, but the first question you ask, I am not at liberty to answer. Any other questions?”

Now, when they ask if you remember anything from before you woke up, say you can’t remember anything.
But I do remember things.
Oh. My. Gosh. Do I really have to spell it out for you? These people are your enemy. I am your friend. I am your instinct. I remember things you don’t. Okay, well, I don’t actually remember them, but I still learn from them. Take the IV out of your arm, but keep it under your blanket! You don’t want them to see. Now, before you look around, I’ll tell you what’s around you. Everything is white. White, white, white. You get it. NOW TAKE OUT THE IV BEFORE THEY COME INTO THE ROOM.
