The Mental Ward - Beth's Hope (23)


     "Precious was your cat?" Emery shook her head incredulously.  "My father came home from work with that story and told me when I was just a little girl."
     Beth opened her mouth and shut it again.  She chewed her lip.  "Can I...?"  Her eyes flickered over Emery's face and then dropped to the ground.  "Can I go home now?"
     Emery's eyes watered.  "Yes."  She reached out, cupping her hand under Beth's chin.  "Yes, I think so."  She dropped her hand and hurried down the hallway ahead of her young charge.  "I just need to figure a way to get you out of here alive."
