During the night, I finally was able to sleep and resume the field in my dreams. I figure I would return to something I liked. I was able to go to the field, as a healthy person, before the accident. Yet, despite it, there was still something bothering apart from Melanie running away from the hospital. Knowing, I can enter dreams of others, I knew I had to try to find Melanie if I can. I wasn't sure if this was known as lucid dreaming, even during the two weeks. I was able to control in somewhere, with hopes of convincing Melanie to come back. I was going to try to for it while I was asleep, but I had noticed there was a problem trying. Whenever I do enter the astral plane, my body goes into a catatonic stage and often leaving in pain upon returning.

The next morning, I was trying to look for something on the telly when a news headline was reporting about an escapee from a psych ward. While her name wasn't released, Melanie's details were. I just wanted to shut down for a while, but I was apprehensive about it because of the pain I find myself in. I don't want to be put on any more drugs for it due to the side effects. Luckily, my mum came over to see how I was doing. I try to explain about what Melanie did following being sectioned. She was surprised to hear about what happened, let alone being able to talk in some manner. My mum was informed about the amount of pain I was sincerely in and attempts to ease the tensions. I wanted to be able to hug her in order to calm her down, but she understood I still couldn't do so. It would be about two months before I can be the switch from the Halo to a different kind of brace.

I have been screened to see if my jaw would be able to move once again, the same goes with the tracheotomy would be dealt with. I know about a stoma being left behind, but it'll likely to stitched together to allow it to heal faster. After some awhile, I was able to obtain some books to read as I was starting to get bored with the telly, going leaving it on for the news. I was trying to figure out where Melanie took off since I was worried for her thanks to the recent health situation. Suddenly, I heard some footsteps approaching my direction, assuming it was just more visitors. I was right about that, but not the kind of I was used to.

I was given a check-up as normal, but I was seen by someone who was working at the parapsychology department. She kinda scared me a bit, but I was told that she was just helping with my recent EEG activities. I was still trying talk as much as I could, despite it being scratchy. I was trying to mime my lip during it in order for the staff member to understand what was going on. I wanted to explain what I saw happening. Finally, I greeted by an officer who was working on the case, asking me if I saw Melanie. To be fair, I didn't which way she took off but did explain why Melanie left. I had to explain what condition she was in, along with Geri since she too was staying.

Suddenly, I felt some strange pains and basically got a vision of the pitch, which kinda scared me. It was the very pitch I almost died, yet it was coming back. Then, I was starting to hear a familiar voice, it was Melanie in trouble. I was hooked on to the EEG to check, as normal. It picked up the activities. I wasn't why I was getting these visions, during my routine check-up. Of course, Geri wheeled herself into the room, with Brandy behind her. Again, I didn't want to know how Geri gave those guards the slip despite a flight risk order. Brandy had followed Geri and noticed all the people in the room.

"Sorry about that. I didn't know... wait." Brandy said.

"Now, don't look at me. I had nothing to do..." Geri said.

"It's all right. We need to know about what happened to Melanie." The researcher said.

"I know... she got loose. I heard I was though the vents." Geri said.

"We know that part. We just don't know what direction or how to reach her. I have a team looking for her." The officer said.

"Kind in mind, she's allergic to dogs." Geri said.
