“Oh, are you finally going to listen to me?” “Now, now, Brooke. We don’t need any of that attitude. Dr. Stav is just trying to get the story straight,” he said calmly. I couldn’t believe him. He was talking like he hadn’t sentenced me to be chained to this bed and forced drugs. “Shut up! I don’t even want to see you!” I screamed. I could...

A slow, creeping surge went through Mr. Rabin’s body. “At least I know you’re listening.” said the voice on the other end. “’Cause if you don’t, I’m gonna send your boy back to you. In as many pieces as possible. Understand?”  Mr. Rabin was silent. His silence was as good as a yes. “Glad that we understand each other, now I want you ...

The first thing that went through his mind was, Could it be her? Could it really be her? He couldn’t be absolutely sure, but she was the same height, same eye color, same smile; but her hair was different, she didn’t act like herself, and he couldn’t be sure about the face. Above all, she didn’t recognize him. But something deep inside of him said, You found h...

Dr. Stav sat behind her desk and motioned me to sit on the couch to the right of the door. Her blonde hair was twisted into a bun and she was wearing her black-rimmed glasses instead of her contacts. She was wearing a black pencil skirt and a white blouse with eyelet flowers. She was pretty and reminded me of the pictures of my mom; but she was married and had two young children of her own. I sat...

As she gazed out from the taxi window the stranger's red lips curled upwards. The driver didn't ask for payment as he was anxious to get her out of his cab, he didn't know why, but the woman in the back seat sent shivers down his spine every time her dark eyes caught his in the mirror. Something deep within the black, soulles stare would gleam menacingly and cause his brow to sweat. A leathe...

I held my torch close to my body, trying to light up the ground. I could only see a meter in front of me; everything else was pitch black. But I continued to run as fast as I could, tripping over my own feet every now and then. I didn't have anywhere else to go, let alone could see where I was going. I squinted into the blackness trying to make out the dark shadows as I sprinted past them. They lu...

She couldn’t believe what she was hearing. The excitement in his voice made her heart skip a beat; but when his tone changed, she held her breath and tucked her bottom lip beneath her teeth. “…but I’m not sure where to find her again.

“Linda told me that you snuck out last night. I would like to know why.” Elizabeth was not smiling today. She wore concern well, though. I know that this would come up eventually, but I had pretended that it wouldn’t. I didn’t think I was entirely ready to handle the memories of the previous night. “I wanted to get out and do something on my own. I met th...
