45. Miranda vs Therapy: Round 3, Concluded

“That’s our time for today.” Dr. Smith flips his legal pad closed. 

Miranda stands. Her mind is busy elsewhere, so her pride doesn’t stifle her sycophantic forced cheer. “Thanks so much!” 

At the doorway, “Oh!” she says like a thought just occurred to her, “Will Shou get another roommate?”

Dr. Smith smiles. “Soon. But don’t worry: Jeremy won’t. He’ll spend a few days in solitary—just to be sure he isn’t a danger to himself or others.”

Miranda’s mind flashes to the white room, the buzz of silence in her ears.

She forces her lips upwards and bares her teeth. “Great!”
