As the youngest child and only girl, Linda spent many days at home alone with her mother, watching her battle memories of loss and despair, unable to cope.

Mandy, a novice nurse at Freeport hospital, took the elevator down to get supplies for her area. It only took a moment to go from four down to three. The elevator doors opened to a dimly lit floor. She walked out and glanced to her right. The empty nurses station was just down the hall before the double doors that she assumed led to the now empty rooms. There were a few boxes on the counter that surrounded the station, but other than those, the station was empty. She turned to the left and saw the closed door with the word “Supplies” stenciled on it. Hurrying over to the doors, she pulled out the key and inserted it into the lock. A light switch was conveniently located right inside the door and Mandy switched it on. Bright light flooded the interior of the supply room. Metal shelves lined up in narrow aisles throughout the room. She easily located the sheets and also found a plastic tub she could use to carry them upstairs. She piled the sheets into the tub, carried them out of the room, then turned off the light and then locked the door.Hefting the tub back into her arms, she turned around and was surprised to see a little girl standing next to the empty nurses station. Mandy guessed the little girl was about eight years old. She had a hospital gown on and her hair was styled in two braids that hung on either side of her head. She must have wandered away from the Pediatric Ward on the second floor. “Hey sweetheart,” she said. “I’m Mandy. Are you lost?”The girl stared at the nurse for a long moment, but didn’t answer.“Come on, I can bring you back to your room,” Mandy coaxed, not wanting to frighten the child. The child didn’t respond. Mandy put the tub down, looked back up and the child was gone. Shaking her head in surprise, Mandy slowly stepped forward, her heart thumping in her chest. 1.

Sally let her eyes drift down to the girl's dark blue skirt, somewhere between a mini and a midi, and she could not help but notice the long and shapely legs that were crossed rather elegantly within the skirt, with milky thighs and smooth white calves that tapered down to delicate ankles and dark blue heels. Her nails were painted dark blue also. Wow, this girl was really something! So elegant! So... Then suddenly the girl looked up! Oh, no, she had caught Sally staring right at her! And staring not at her face, but at her body! The girl raised one eyebrow slightly, as if to say "Yes?" Sally felt herself blush and looked quickly to the floor. After perhaps 10 seconds staring at various uninteresting pairs of shoes, Sally gathered her courage and looked back toward the girl. Oh my goodness, she was still staring, and she'd caught Sally looking once again! This was getting really embarrassing! Sally felt herself blush once more. The girl must think Sally was some kind of weird pervert! She would probably phone the police as soon as she could get a signal! Sally at least reassured herself that she was looking good that evening. Her thick blonde medium-length hair had a nice shine and swirl to it. She was glad she'd put on her long black boots with the high heels; happy that she had a stylish brown skirt and black blouse; even a little excited that she had worn her black stockings that day. It was while daydreaming in this way that Sally observed something rather strange. Despite the fact that the train was now at full speed and the passengers were still some way from the next stop, the girl stood up and began to walk in Sally's direction! She continued walking as if to get nearer the door but brushed against Sally's belly with her phone as she did so. Was that accidental? Probably: The train was still pretty crowded, so there was not much room to get by. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scarlett Knightley.
