Anna heard the screams. Her night shift was almost over and nothing had happened. She was happy. But the screams came. And, being a nurse at the Daylarc Insane Asylum, she had to find out what was happening.
So she traveled down the hallway to room 32 where she had heard the screams coming from. It was quiet. For a second, she thought she was going crazy. But then she remembered where she was. An Insane Asylum. A place where screams and yells were the norm. So she unhooked her keys from her belt and found the right key. She pushed it into the lock and turned it to the left. It made a satisfying click, acknowledging that the door was unlocked. Then, Anna pushed the thick door open, leaning cautiously through the small entry she had made. She looked left, then right, but to her surprise, it was empty.
So she stepped into the room, first her left foot, then her right foot. Soon, she was next to the bed. It was stripped clean; no sheets, no pillows.
Slam! The door closed. She ran to it. Anna tried the knob, but it was no use, and she knew it. The door was locked. There was no key hole from this side, so she couldn’t use her keys. She banged and banged, hoping that whoever had closed the door would open it.
