Legion of Bats by Shadow Stephens
I wish I knew why I’m spending the night in a mental hospital. You would think the staff would explain my situation, but instead they have locked me in a dorm room. Will they forget about me? Will this give the town folk more reason to talk about me by spreading the news that I’ve been taken to the loony bin.
I guess I shouldn’t care what they think, but that’s easier said than done. You would think I would be used to it by now. It seems that all my life I’ve been known as the town freak. I just don’t get it. So I’m a little different, what’s so bad about that?
As I write I’m trying to keep my mind off things, but honestly I’ve never been so scared. I don’t belong here or at least I don’t think I do.
When we drove up to the hospital, a large lump formed in my throat. This has to be the scariest place I have ever been. They don’t even turn the lights on. It’s more like an above ground dungeon, dank and cold. How can they expect to treat the mentally ill in conditions like this? There has to be a way out. That’s how I spend my time; forming an escape plot.
I hear people down the hall screaming. When I look through the small window of my door, the hall is pitch black. Do they torture people here?
