“How are you feeling?” Dr. Smith asks. He looks tired and his eyes flick toward the shadows with every other word.

“At least one of your personalities wants to leave. A very exciting development.”

Dr. Smith wags a finger. “Dissociative identity disorder requires at least three separate personalities. Doctors know best, Miranda. Trust me.” 

She doesn’t answer. They lead her upstairs, back toward light and sound.
