41. The Voice that Carries

Miranda wakes with the first shout, dons her glasses, and wonders what Clarke did this time.  

An orderly throws the door open and looks between Miranda, standing in the center of the room, and her barely-conscious roommate. 

“Was that from in here?” 

Miranda shakes her head.

A man’s voice howls from down the hall: “It was him! A giant snake! Don’t keep me in here with him! He said this would happen! He did it! No! It was real!” 

Then another voice: “I need backup!” 

The orderly leaves, relocking the door. Miranda remains awake long after the voices fade, thinking.
