Report: It has been two weeks since patient has checked in. Patient has had a number of fits in room and a few while in Evaluation Room. It is now apparent that she needs more frequent therapy and stronger medication, I regret to say previous progress has regressed.

I have not seen Dr. Salvadore in a few days, his presence is missed. There have been several others doctors who have taken me out of my room and talked to me, asked me many questions. Some were patient, I talked to them. Some were angry, She talked to them. I have been given many new medications, they make me sleepy.
I was returned to my room an hour ago, but as I look into the slit window I just know there is another doctor out there, probably with another new drug.
I hear the hiss of gas and I close my eyes and just let it happen, I just let the gas flow out of the vents and put me to sleep, She does not protest.

When I wake up I feel drowsy and nauseous, my head aches and I cannot move. It was at this moment in my blurred vision I see Dr. Salvadore in the doorway with two orderlies. They pick me up and lie me down on a gurney and roll me down a different hall.

These walls are red...
I like the red walls Amorette, let me see them. I am too drowsy to fight her so she slips out, the red soothes her anger and she watches peacefully as we stroll down this new hall.

When we arrive to the room I wait for her to fade. But she does not. Instead she stays in control of my body.
Dr. Salvadore appears above my face, he is a bit blurry but I can see his tear stained cheeks.
"A-Amorette, if you're in there at all. I just want you to know that I am sorry. I am so, so sorry. I couldn't save you," He chokes, wiping his eyes. "I love you, but I cannot save you. Despite my efforts the board has decided you are too much of a risk. Your other self to strong. We have to euthanize you," His strong voice breaks and he begins to sob brokenly. I do not understand right away. Then I realize that she never wanted my body, she just wanted me to die. She wanted to die. If I had faded like she'd requested I'd not see this fate.
As this truth sinks in I realize despite my loathing for her, I never hoped it would come to this.
Just fade, fade away and let me feel the pain of death.
Her words are spoken in a oddly soft tone. As my dying wish, I manage to get her to whisper: "I love you" to Dr. Salvadore before I slowly fade into the background.

Lead enters our veins and I faintly feel the slowing of our heart, and little by little we fade from existence, his tears washing over our face.

Report: Today Amorette Dusk was euthanized due to the board's decision that she was not worth the time or resources, she would not have gained control of herself and therefore it is better she was retired. I personally will miss her.
