Soon after that the doctor left and it was time for dinner, Lauren sits giggling in the corner at Camila sticking her tongue out.

"What am I supposed to do?" Her mother huffed in frustration, "can't you just give her more medication."

"No, putting her on anymore will likely cause more damage to her in the long run." The doctor says over the phone.

"She's making me crazy myself, I can't sleep at night hearing her talk all night to someone who isn't there!"

Lauren's eyes watched her in pain trying to understand why her mother wants to keep giving her medicine, she didn't feel like anything was wrong.


"Yes angel?"

Lauren sighs looking towards the girl on the counter, legs dangling. "Are you real?"

"Of course I am."

"Then how come they don't believe me when I tell them."

"Because they don't understand, they don't understand you, or us." Camila said hoping off the counter, and taking Lauren's hand into hers.

"We'll make it all better soon though, don't you worry your pretty little head about it." She said leaning down and placing a single kiss on Lauren's forehead.

"It'll be okay?" Lauren asks looking up questioningly, "and you'll stay?"

"I'll always stay."
