  1. Albert stopped in the corridor and faced Dr. Shepherd. “I don’t know what to do with her. She hates me for actions I never did.”
    The man in the white coat peered down onto his clipboard.”You have hard decisions you need to think about. She really believes you killed her and we can’t get past it in her mind.”
    “But she’s perfectly normal and functioning like a regular person. How can she think I killed her when she’s standing there alive?”
    “She thinks this is an afterlife and you are here to attempt killing her a second time.”
    “But I’ve never laid a hand on her.”
    Dr. Shepherd motioned to continue walking. “Insanity is simply another person’s reality. Until we discover what triggered this reality in her head, we need to address her concerns and keep her safe.”
    “What about me? If we let her out of this looney bin, she’ll come after me. You don’t know her like I do. She doesn’t like feeling threatened. She was never a victim of prey. If someone was stalking her, she turned the boat on them. She became the hunter.”
    “We don’t refer to our hospital as the looney bin, Albert.”
    “Didn’t you hear what I said? She thinks I’m going to hurt her. She will hunt me down and kill me if you let her out.”
