I Am Rosemary’s Granddaughter Chapter 20: “Homeward Bound”

I knew it wasn’t a nightmare. Tragically, there was no way to just click my heels three times or wish upon a star to reverse it all. It was all real, every word he spoke, every fallen tear. As long as I kept my eyes closed and thought of nothing, all was well...I’m sure there were some heavy meds involved as well.
I woke up in a strange place with my hands restrained and a brace on my arm. My legs were bound too.
“Where am I?”

Things were progressing nicely

The topic of the day in 'girl 101' was their wardrobes.

“So, they’re still going to perform the play?” Mike’s voice still had a tiredness to it.
“Yes, I think it’s a great tribute for her.”
“You would’ve performed it all yourself if they didn’t.”
“You’re right,” I replied.
I sat at a small, built for two, but three people could possibly sit at it if they used tea saucers as dinner plates as I talked with Micheal over the phone.
Danny was on the other side of the room on his computer.
“I wish you could see it.”
“We could come and break you out of the hospital?”

I Am Rosemary's Granddaughter Chapter 17: "Miss You"

I had several dreams during the night.
Not all of them were nightmares, but they came close as they all revolved around real people in my life. I couldn't recall anything that they said, but it was more of their expressions—the lifeless, dead expressions they had with every face that flashed in my head. My parents, teachers, Karen Anne, Dick, maybe even Elvis, I don’t know…but they all stood along a line that lead to a door and ultimately closed it on me.

Everything was torn to ribbons; quite literally—as if the perpetrators were a regiment of renegade, pissed-off seamstresses with scissors in hand. Whoever did it wasn't seen by anybody—or maybe no one cared to get involved.
Every stitch of clothing we owned, destroyed.
Our books, sliced.

To Be a Different Someone: Chapter 15 (Final) "Don't Be Stupid"

No one came up to my room. No one came to the door. I don’t know if I really wanted anyone to or not. For as much as I might have wanted someone to ask if I was okay, I didn’t want to talk.
I didn’t pack any clothes or take my sketchbooks when I left by dawn’s early light. No note. Nothing. I just wanted to get away from everyone for a while.
