Their eyes were the first thing I noticed. Some of the patients had faraway, glazed eyes, and were very unfocused. The others had pupils that seemed to devour their irises, only leaving a very thin circle around the black holes, or, 'pupils'.
I do not belong here, I thought as I was manhandled down the hallways. I do not belong here, I am not crazy.

To her surprise, Orchid actually made friends here at Rikoshay's Asylum for the Mentally Deranged, also known as the Chessboard Asylum to the ones who inhabit it.

Or maybe friends was too strong of a word.

@girlwithscissors I said it before, and I’ll say it again: I am the writer, I can deny any and all reality I want.
