~Flashback~ First Friendships [Angel, Claire] ~Complete~

Post by Claire on Sat Mar 02, 2013 8:47 pm

Claire walked into the Day room of the Intensive Watch Unit very warily, while hugging Jack to her. She looked around the room and saw the eyes of the other patients start to drift to her. She soon started to feel her heartbeat begin to race. She quickly turned to the entry of the door and ran dead smack into an orderly and fell to the ground. She looked up at the man and he stood there with arms crossed with a smug look and a smirk. The look reminded her of the same look her mother got when those men invaded their house. She started to feel sweat bead up on her nape as the man started to move. She jumped violently as she saw his hand come closer to her.

He’s probably going to take her to some deserted area and try to rape her this time.. She saw it happen to some of the girls on her wing. She couldn’t handle that kind of situation again. She heard a sigh, “Claire…just go have a seat. Ill be back with your medicine.” She heard the clacking of soles on the linoleum floor, she lowered her arm and looked up and saw the retreating form of the orderly. She looked around and saw some of the patients staring. She quickly scurried up to her feet and walked over to a table in the far corner. She sat there and clutched onto Jack for a secure feeling.

“I'll be fine…I’ll be ok, Jack will protect me, right Jack?”She shifted Jack’s head to nod to her and she smiled softly.

“What’s your name?” She looked up and saw one of the patients with a messy looking hair wearing grey pants and t-shirt. The usual attire of all the patients here, her included. She squeezed jack and shook her head ‘no’ as she began to ease her way further into the corner. She looked over and the other patients were coming over which drove her paranoia over more. “That’s a cool toy, can I play with it?” she looked in the direction of the voice and saw a hand reaching towards her. She jerked away from the hands and tried to seep deeper into the corner.

Angel had just been released from solitary after his last violent outburst, but was placed into intensive watch to make sure nothing like that happened again. "You behave now or we'll have to put you back into solitary. That means no fighting with anyone else and taking your medicine." Angel growled, annoyed that he was being spoken to like a child when they knew he was perfectly capable of making simple connections on how to behave in a mental hospital. He'd only been there for 3 years already. "Yeah, I know what the hell to do Gary." he spit out before being let into the room.

Immediately after the door closed he saw a small girl standing at about 5'4, but more importantly she looked scared out of her mind. He had been a victim of bullying himself, it was what made him so aggressive towards people, so he instantly found himself growling and making his way over.
"Hey! Leave her alone or I'll knock your teeth in!"

The other patients had heard about him and knew about his anger issues and the fact he was a harbinger wasn't a helpful towards him making friends either so they immediately ran away.[ "Hey! Angel! You bothering other the other patients again!?" a large male orderly asked him accusingly. Angel growled and wondered where the hell he was when the girl was getting scared witless. "No! Now leave me the hell alone!" He yelled back as he walked away from the girl.

Angel walked off into another corner of the room and the other patients moved out of his way as he did. He only wished he had his old ipod to listen to as he sat there glaring out at the others. If he did he wouldn't have to hear the whispers that the rest of the patients made while talking about him. He closed his eyes and rested his head against the wall hoping everyone would just leave him alone.

Claire felt her body trembling as she could feel the hands of others touching her or trying to pull Jack away, along with a tidal wave of questions. She curled further into a ball clutching onto jack until she heard someone shouting.

"Hey! Leave her alone or I'll knock your teeth in!”, and with that the touching and the questions stopped for a moment. Suddenly, she heard a bunch of retreating steps and the whispering. She looked up from jack and saw the other patients had retreated and gone to tamper with other things in the room.

"Hey! Angel! You bothering other the other patients again!?", a large male orderly asked him accusingly. She looked in the direction of the command and saw this extremely pale man with spikey hair and a scowl on his face. "No! Now leave me the hell alone!"he barked at the orderly.

She looked over to the orderly and he just grunted as he crossed his arms at the man. Her eyes followed the man as he walked through the room and she saw how the other patients darted from him, as he would pass. ‘Why is everyone afraid of him…Is he dangerous?’ She thought as she watched him flop down into a chair at one of the tables. ‘he scared away the people from me…maybe..if I go close enough to him..maybe the others wont come near me.’ She thought as she stood up and continued to stare at the man.

Angel had just been sitting alone when he heard the soft patter of footsteps. He sighed as it was usually a sign that meant someone was about to bother him. He opened his eyes and saw the girl he had saved was slowly approaching. She jumped a little when he saw her and she visibly squeezed on the doll she was holding.

Angel didn't know what to make of what she was doing. She was watching him, but from time to time she would look around to look for something. She looked like she wanted to run from him, but it was almost like she didn't have anywhere else to go.
"Isn't that the truth...this whole place feels like a damn cage." he thought tiredly. Three years was a long time for a person to be stuck in a mental hospital to handle something as simple as an anger issue and he was tired of it.

He continued to watch her slowly approaching and settled on looking at her face. It was strange he hadn't noticed before, but her eyes were two different colors. The left one was a glowing hazel brown but the right was misty white...she was probably blind in her right eye. Her chin-length brown hair dangled slightly in her face as if to hide it from the world, but Angel saw a few facial features when she pulled her hair back from her hazel eye.

She had an overall round face, but she had sunken in cheeks and bags under her eyes. He looked her over and saw that the clothes they provided here fit her like an XL shirt would fit a twelve year old and the arms he could see the girl suffocating her doll with were thin like sticks.
"Damn...she looks like she hasn't slept or eaten in days..." he thought to himself.

"What do you want?" he asked sounding more concerned than mad.

She approached him and continued edge closer to the table he was sitting at. He would periodically look at her and her eyes would dart into another direction. She got even more nervous at the confrontation she may experience if she keeps the line of sight. The closer she got the more she could feel his eyes on her and it made her uncomfortable with each step. She clutched jack as she sat down at the table and looked down as she brushed her hair out of her good eye.

“What do you want?”

She jumped at the tone in his voice, she glanced up at him and saw that he was give her a tired leer as he propped his chin up with his hand. She shifted her gazed from her lap to him, “N-Nothing..” she said in a scared tone as she looked away. She rubbed Jack’s head and decided to look back the man who was now looking away.

She studied his face and noticed his eyes looks similar to her right eye. She continued to stare at him,
‘his eyes look like mine…is he blind too?...but how could he see me?’ "umm…" she mumbled. Her turned to her to which she is retracted herself to her lap.

"N-Nothing..." the girl said in a scared tone as her eyes once again looked away. Angel was bit surprised that she didn't want anything, so he just looked out to the rest of the patients who were staring at the girl and him. The stories they were probably going to create about them were surely going to piss him off. This was one of the biggest annoyances of being forced to live here. He was always surrounded by people who would forever get on his nerves and drive him past his limits, but the drugs were the worst part. That feeling of being only half there...he hated it. He'd secretly began freezing the pills so they didn't dissolve and then he would throw them back up when he got the chance

"umm..." the girl mumbled and he turned to her with a small sigh. He knew it was too good to be true for someone not to bother him for once...at least he knew she wouldn't be too much of a problem to get rid of if she got on his nerves. "What is it?" he asked casually...maybe she'd ask something that wouldn't annoy him.

“What is it.” he asked in a annoyed tone.

She looked back up at him and started fiddling with jack’s ears. “u-um…” she paused as she looked back up to the man who was staring back at her with a lackadaisical look. His eyes were leering down at her as she continued to nervously fiddle with jack’s ears.

He looks really annoyed…but I…I'm afraid that he might try something. She sighed and rubbed her armed some, “um…y-your eyes.” she mumbled as she looked back up to the man. He had given her a questioning expectant look. “um a-are you…blind??” She asks as she looked up at him with a intrigued look. The man raised his eyebrow and looked confused.

"No...i'm a harbinger. My eyes look frosted over, but I actually see just fine." He said as he looked away.


Claire blinked a few times as she stared at him. ‘He’s a harbringer??...so..so he wont think I'm weird if I told him…what I can do..’ she turned to look at jack and rubbed his head, 'maybe he can help me figure out why I can do these things…’

When Angel mentioned he was a harbinger the girl's eyes seemed to light up with curiosity and amazement. It wasn't something particularly to be proud of to Angel though. After all it was the reason he was bullied all of his life and the reason he was in the rat trap he was stuck in now. He had grown so tired of the place over the years. He tried to keep up his physical shape as best as he could but without all the training equipment and someone to spar against he was sure he was getting rusty in his fighting skills. The best he could do was his flexibility training to keep his body limber and no equipment exercises to at least keep his body tone. "What's with the look? Does me being a freak amuse you too?" he spat angrily.

He huffed and looked away to calm himself down. There was no way she could've known about his issues about his powers and it wasn't her fault for noticing his eyes were different. After all it was painfully obvious to anyone who could see. He turned back to her with a sigh.
Sorry... he muttered quietly. "What about you? I'm going to take a wild guess and say you're blind in one eye. Am I right?"

He saw her jump when he asked that and at that moment and orderly came over with a small cup in his hands. "ugh...that fucking medicine" he thought to himself.

When Claire saw that her question had angered the man so she drew up in her chair. She did exactly what she didn’t want to do and that was make him angry. She felt really uncomfortable sitting there but she knew if she got up the other patients would try to barrage her again.

“Sorry” she heard the man say. She didn’t look up she just continued to hold Jack close to her and sighed. She realized she probably put herself into a worse situation than before. She missed being in her old unit where she could just sit in her room and tend to her own findings. “What about you? I'm going to take a wild guess and say you're blind in one eye. Am I right?" she jumped and looked back at the man. She looked at the table and nodded slightly.

“Claire?”, she snapped her head in the direction of the voice and saw the nurse who escorted her into the unit. “I have your medicine, Here” ,he said with a faint smile as he handed the small cup to her. Claire withdrew herself even more into the table and shifted Jack so she was behind him. “Claire..you need to take your medicine, it helps you relax.” He paused, “and don’t you want to be able to talk to your new friend?”

Claire wasn’t letting her guard down and she still felt incredibly scared at the man. Even though he’s her daily attendant she never got used to him..or anyone else for that matter. She hated how her medicine made her, she could never really concentrate and it just deadened her perception to where she was a drugged drone like the rest of the patients. And that’s how the other girls get taken…She heard a sigh followed by a light clack of the cup of pills next to her. “Claire.. You know I can’t leave until you take your medicine.” Claire knew this but every time she would try to stall the nurse would always outlast her..and she didn’t want a situation like before…leather straps gave her bruises probably worse than her scars.

She lowered jack and looked down at the floor as she took the little cup of pills off the table. She stalled and looked up at the nurse and he smiled lightly at her. She drew back, then downed the cup of pills and slid them behind her tongue, but made a grimace to make it convincing.
“That’s my girl. I'll bring you some water to help them go down.” ,He said as he looked back up at the man with a look and walked away.

Angel watched as the orderly left and then looked at Claire. "So your name is Claire. Please tell me you didn't already swallow that crap." he asked sounding hopeful. "If you didn't I can help you avoid having to...you'd just have to chuck them up later."

She stared back at him and shook her head slightly and spit the pills into her hand, showing them to him. "I...just hide them..."

Angel smirked as he saw her take the pills and put them in a small opening inside the doll. The orderly came back with her cup of water and he watched her feign drinking the pills. The orderly made her open her mouth and once he was sure the she had swallowed the pills he left. "That was actually pretty cool to watch. I'm glad to know someone else around here can't stand those damn meds. The name's Angel. For once I can say it's nice to meet someone here." he said with a genuine smile while extending his hand out to her.

She sets the now empty cup down and felt the cold water go through her system. After the nurse had left, she turned back to her lap, "That was actually pretty cool to watch. I'm glad to know someone else around here can't stand those damn meds." She looked up and saw him smirking at her, “The name's Angel. For once I can say it's nice to meet someone here." as he extended his hand out.

Claire stared at him and looked away then sat jack on the table as she held his paw out to his hand,
“H-Hi…Angel..” she stuttered as she looked back at angel with jack’s paw still out.

Angel looked at her confused.
"Umm...ok?" he said while shaking hands with the toy.

She quickly jerked Jack away from him and clutched him to her chest. She sat there and just stared at Angel.
‘so he’s nice…for now..I’m very wary, if he’s who I think he is he’s the one most the nurses are afraid of’ she thought. ‘Should I be afraid too?..i..i don’t know…but I'm curious', “i-um..w-what..can you do?” she asked hesitantly. She could feel her nerves on end and her hands begin to tremble as she continuously tampered with Jack’s ear again.

"I...um...w-what...can you do?" Claire asked while messing with her doll nervously. Angel raised his eyebrow curiously "Why would you want to know something like that?" he waited a moment before he shrugged his shoulders. "I can freeze things that I touch...like this." he said as he placed his finger on the table and frost and ice began to form on its surface.

He made sure it was a thin layer so it could melt without too much time passing, but he had to admit it felt good to freeze something again. The fact it made the air slightly cooler felt great to him. He was always irritable when he was hot and the hospital wouldn't lower the thermostat because he was the only one who liked it cold.
"What about you? Your eye is glowing so I'm guessing you're a harbinger too. What can you do?" he asked nonchalantly. He would never had openly said or shown it, but this was the best conversation he'd had in years. The doctors were too busy trying to pick his brain and prescribing him drugs to make him into a vegetable and the orderlies were too busy asking if he was causing problems.

"Why would you want to know something like that?",He paused and Claire felt her halted her actions, ‘did I upset him??’, she thought nervously, then he shrugged his shoulders which relaxed her some.

He raised his index finger, "I can freeze things that I touch...like this." he said as he placed his finger on the table and frost and ice began to form on its surface. Claire looked at the table and saw the frost begin to encase the area around his finger. She was surprised that he was able to do that. How is he even able to do so without freezing himself? How did he manage to do that when the natural body temperature is way above freezing level? Many questions ran to her mind; she was rather baffled at this…it’s nothing like what she can do. But then again…she never knew she was a harbringer until recently.

"What about you? Your eye is glowing so I'm guessing you're a harbinger too. What can you do?", he asked nonchalantly. Her eyes jumped at the question and she looked around. She pulled the hair from behind her ear to block her glowing eye and uncovered her blind eye. “I…I don’t know…” she mumbled looking at Jack. She could feel her nerves getting to her, "I--"

"Time for lights out!", Claire jumped at the yelling and and saw the other patients getting up and putting things away. "Guys go Gary and Ladies with Chris", and the patients followed accordingly. Claire turned back to Angel who was scowling at the man giving directions.

Angel was actually angry that his time with the first person who didn't piss him off was cut so short (even though it had actually been the whole day with long intervals between conversations because of Claire's nervousness.) and he growl and slammed his hand on the table slightly. He was so angry he didn't notice Claire jump when he slammed his fist. "Time for the sleeping medicine! everybody line up! Come on we don't have all night!"

"Claire? Are we going to talk again tomorrow?" he asked, but Claire seemed to caught up in her own mind again to be listening as she walked away. "Hey...Claire?" he said to get her attention, but when he grabbed her arm to get finally get her attention, but she gave a panicked scream instead. Angel jumped at the sound and let her go while everyone else in the room turned to them. "Angel! What are you doing!" Angel just watched Claire who retreated from him as the orderlies came for him. Sure he'd had people look at him before when they were scared, but that was normally after he'd beaten someone he didn't care about. Scaring someone that he was actually starting to create a bond with was something else entirely. It reminded him of how his parents looked at him when he saw them in the police station he was being held in for putting the other kid in a coma. It hurt him to have her look at him like that.

"I-I'm sorry...I didn't mean to scare you. I'm not gonna hurt you!" he desperately shouted as he tried to move towards her, which only caused her to back farther away until the orderlies grabbed him and started pulling him away from her. He tried fighting them off, but the two men had a firm grip on each arm and another one pulled down his pants low enough to reveal his rear and injected a sedative in him which took only seconds for Angel to fall limp. "I'm...so...rry..."

Claire drew back some as she saw the anger become more prevalent on Angel’s face. She jumped when he punched the table."Time for the sleeping medicine! Everybody line up! Come on we don't have all night!" she looked back in the direction of the command then looked down and sighed. She finally found someone she can talk to about things with…even if she can’t seem to calm down around him. 'Well…ill be more comfortable once I'm by myself. Ill have another chance tomorrow anyway…it’s not like I have a choice, If want to stay away from other patients.’ She thought reluctantly.

“Hey…Claire?”, was what she heard before she felt someone grab her. Instantly memories of the beatings she had to endure when she was younger ran through her mind and all she could do was scream and try to get away.

“Angel! What are you doing!” She felt the person turn her loose giving her a opportunity to run, she turned around and saw Angel. ‘He is mad at me! He just wanted to til the last moment!’ She looked at his face and saw a hurt expression, "I-I'm sorry...I didn't mean to scare you. I'm not gonna hurt you!" he shouted desperately as he approached her. She faltered but her involuntary reaction kicked in and she jumped back. She saw the hurt in his eyes as the nursed tackled him and tried to calm him down. She watched as the nurses bent him over and stuck him with some medicine."I'm...so...rry..." he said weakly as he fell slack in the nurses arms.

‘I-I can’t believe I caused another person to get hurt…’ she thought as she looked down sadly. “Come on, Claire, it’s lights out.” She turned and saw the nurse waiting for her. She approached the nurse and he gave her a cup of sleeping medication and another cup of water. She tongued the medicine and drank the water, “Open.” She complied and opened her mouth, “You’re clear. Now head to your room.” He said as he moved to the side. She clutched Jack to her chest as she spit the sleeping pill out and continued to think about what happened in the day room, and the look she got from Angel. He’s the second person she caused harm to because of her fear. Once in her room she sat down on her bed and saw the small camera in the corner of the room that was disguised as a small smoke detector. She sighed as she continued to blame herself for her shortcomings in talking to Angel today and the reason why the orderlies tranquilized Angel. 'I wish I could apologize…but I'd probably wouldn't even be able to get the words out.They’re probably going to put him in solitary for a while because of what happened.' She covered her face and started to feel the backlash of her anger and depression. She wiped away a few stray tears and just pulled back the covers and laid down.

While she laid there and snuggled Jack, she remembered what she could do. She sat up and sat Jack in front of her as she concentrated on Jack. She felt her head get woozy as she grabbed her head, a sharp pain started at the front head and started to spread. As she opened her eyes and saw the room began to spin her body fell slack as she fell unconscious.


A hour later she woke up and saw herself laying down, she looked around and held her hands up and saw jack’s paws. She hopped off the bed and pulled open her door so she could slip out. She looked down the hall and saw the light from a flashlight from down the hall. Immediately she slipped back into the room as she heard footsteps come up her door. the door opened and she fell slack on the floor. The nurse shined the flashlight onto Jack and then onto her body and then left leaving the door slightly ajar. With that she slipped back out and saw the nurse heading up the hall. She slipped out and ran down the hall and around the corner as she posted up against the corner to see if there were anymore nurses patrolling. Upon realizing the next corridor was empty she made her way down to the doors to the day room. She pushed the doors only to find out that it’s locked. She slid onto the floor and looked to her left and saw the doors to the stairwell. She looked up at the map on the wall and saw she was on the 3rd floor, right wing. Considering what happened she assumed he was put into solitary so to get to solitary she needs to head to the 4th floor right wing. She thanked the fact that being there for 4 years helped her learn some of the routes. She climbed up the stairs and headed pushed open the doors to the 4th floor.

Angel woke up feeling groggy and with a dry mouth. He briefly wondered what happened when he remembered the injection and the way Claire looked at him. He sat up in his bed and looked around the insulated room. It was one of the few "cool" rooms in the facility and was actually a solitary confinement room that was insulated to keep him better contained. The medicine he was injected with didn't take it's full effect and keep him asleep the full night because his body was significantly colder than the average person. Ever since the first time injection he woke up in the middle of the night, and it was one of the few times he was glad he was different.

He cupped his hands together with some space in between them and froze some of the moisture in the air to make a little ice to suck on to quench his thirst.
"I can't believe I scared her...today was actually pretty decent." he muttered to himself. He got up from his bed and looked out of the small window in his door that the orderlies used to check on him without opening the door and just stared out into the hallway. "I have to get out of here soon...if I stay here for much longer I'll end up going crazy."

It had been almost a full year since his parents came to visit him last. They used to come to his sessions to try to find the 'root' of his problem, but because he had been making little to no marked progress they came less and less until they just stopped. He never forgot the way they looked at him last...they had lost hope in their eyes when they last left him. Angel had always hoped they'd be back and they'd wait for him to get some control over his anger, but he knew at the last time they left they weren't going to come back. He was just an expense to them at this point and it was probably a painful reminder to them that their son was a freak with a short fuse. That was the reason he really liked Claire...she was afraid of him, but she stayed with him...for the most part.

"Now she's gonna disappear too. She'd probably rather deal with the other patients than me..." he said solemnly as he let his head fall against the glass of the window. He sighed deeply and lifted his head and began to stare out of the window at something he couldn't believe. In the hallway he saw the stuffed rabbit Claire was holding looking around while holding a paw to it's face. "Oh great...I'm already going crazy...might as well enjoy it then." he said with a defeated shrug.

He knocked on the glass and the doll noticed him and began heading over. It looked nervous as it came closer and he chuckled disbelievingly. He knew he was going crazy for already seeing Claire's doll walking around, but now it acted like her too? Yup. He was officially crazy. His mind was turning people into dolls.
"What's next? Will the orderlies will turn into bears and the quack doctors will all turn into peeps?" he said with a snort. He went to open the door, but it was locked. He rolled his eyes and put his finger on the lock and began freezing the inside of it and then with one hard pull the frozen metal cracked and it gave way with a muffled snap as he opened the door for the waiting doll. He knew he was gonna hear hell for it, but what did he care anymore? He was nuts! He held the door open like a doorman "Welcome to my room, little rabbit...thing."

Lucky for her the 4th floor right wing was not lock as she pushed open the door. When she managed to slip in she stood there and look at the hall of doors. ‘Any one of these could be Angel’ she sighed. She walked along the hall and looked at the names under the door numbers and each said a random person’s name. Confusion was eating at her as she just stood there in the hall. She wondered why there were no nurses on patrol on this floor.

As she ponder her thoughts she heard a knock causing her to jump, she looked up in the direction of the knock and saw someone looking at her through the window in the door in front of her. The person moved from the window and pushed the door to reveal that it was locked. She continued to stare at the window and saw that the person was doing something to the door. she looked at the handle and saw that the handled started to turn pale white, just as the handle turned white the door was shoved open and the handle dropped to the ground.

Revealing the person to be Angel,
"Welcome to my room, little rabbit...thing." he said as he stood there with his arm extending into his room. She looked up at him and rubbed jack’s paws together nervously as she hesitantly walked into the room. Upon entering the room she felt the cold chill of the room as she stood next to the bed. Angel closed the door and plopped down on the bed. ‘why is it so…cold..’ she thought as she looked around the room and then saw the Air conditioner.

She turned to Angel who was looking at her expectantly. She started fiddling with his paws she didn’t plan this out that far. She looked up at angel and attempted to talk but nothing came out. She tried again and this time with movement and still nothing came out. She stood there with a defeated stance as she looked down at floor.

Angel looked down at the doll and chuckled disbelievingly.
"So you can't speak? At least I'm not hearing things...I'm guessing you want a pen and a pad so we can talk right?" She looked up at him and then at her paws and just nodded. She saw angel walk over to his dresser and pull out a crayon and piece of paper. He handed the paper to her and she fumbled with the crayon a bit to get jack’s paw to wrap around it tightly. She laid the paper on the floor and started to scribble some words onto the paper. She turned the paper to him revealing her message, “I’m sorry…Angel.”

Angel looked down at the piece of paper which had a message on it, but it was too dark to read from where he was. He held out his hand and took the paper and finally saw what it said. "I'm sorry...Angel."

Angel looked at the writing and stopped chuckling at his 'insanity.' This made no sense. What did the doll have to be sorry for? It just got here. Instead of talking to himself about it, in his head, he decided just to out right ask the thing. "What do you mean? What do you have to be sorry for little bunny?" he asked while leaning over his bed at it. The rabbit doll lifted it's hands for the paper back, but Angel took it as a sign to pick it up, but when it began squirming he felt bad and put it on his bed. He watched as it moved away from him and took the paper, wrote something and then pushed the paper back. "I caused you to get put into solitary...because I screamed"

Angel read the note and looked up at the rabbit. He looked between the two a couple more times as his mind tried to process what he just read. "Ok...what's going on? You're..."[color=burlywood] he stopped as the realization hit him. "Claire? Is...this your harbinger ability? Is it...you? he asked nervously and hopefully.

The bunny looked up at Angel from it sat on the bed and nodded. It pulled the paper back and wrote on it,
"I can take control of things." before it slid the paper back.

Angel could hardly believe what was happening. Ok, yeah; he could freeze things, but harbingers could actually Control things? He thought, for a few minutes, about how she could help him escape from the hospital. There couldn't be a mistake so he had to know everything.
"Can you control anything? Even people?" He really hoped she could. Even one person would be enough for them to get out undetected.

The bunny shook its head and wrote down on the paper,
"I don't know, I never tired, I don't think I can" and slid it back. Angel sighed and looked back at the bunny. "What about machines? Can you control them?"

The bunny shook it's head and wrote, "I think I can only control things like Jack...I haven't really tried to control anything else."

Angel cursed quietly and thought what her power could do to help. He needed someone to get inside the room to press the button to open the electronic look door that separated them from freedom. That's when he got an idea. "So...you can only control dolls. I have one last question for you then. Do you want to escape this place with me?"

She saw Angel look at the bed in thought and then his eyes perked up as he turned to her, "So...you can only control dolls. I have one last question for you then. Do you want to escape this place with me?" he said eagerly.

She stared at him as she held onto the crayon still in her paw and then motioned for the paper again. She flipped the paper over and laid it on the bed then wrote her response eagerly,
“Yes! I want to get out!” she slid the paper back to him and waited for his response. Angel smiled widely "Great! Ok, tomorrow I'll tell you about the plan. You need to get some rest. You and your power will be very important to the plan. I'll handle everything else."

Claire sat there and watch the Happiness shine from Angel. She probably couldn’t show it but she felt a smile trace her lips as if she was still in her body. All she could feel was the excitement of not having to be in that wretched hospital any longer! The 4 years she’s been there has been nothing but negative experiences. She nodded excitedly and wrote on the paper, “ok!” and slid it to Angel as she started to climb down off the bed. Once on the floor she started for the door but stopped and realized this is possibly..her first friend. He’s the first person to be really nice to her and she can actually be relatively manageable around. She turned around and motioned for the crayon and paper, to which Angel gave her. She wrote down on the paper, “Thank you” and handed it back to Angel. Angel smiled brightly as he bent down and hugged her. She froze up slightly but surprisingly she didn’t react too badly. "Sorry...got a bit excited...Thank you too" he said quietly before setting her back down on the floor. She felt the legs of the jack get flimsy and she dropped onto the floor.

She shook her head and stood up as she looked up to Angel. She walked to the door and stopped before turning to wave at Angel. She saw Angel give her a wide smile before she slid out of the room.

She looked down the hallway and saw that the hall was still empty so she made her way to the stairwell. She pushed open the door to the stairwell and climbed down the steps. As she made it onto the 3rd floor entrance the door opened. She immediately froze up and just collapsed onto the floor.
“The hell?” she heard a man say before she saw the flashlight shine onto her, “what’s a toy doing in the stairwell?” the man said as she picked her up and flipped her over. “Claire?...hmm” he mumbled to himself. Her vision started to fade, ‘oh-no…this can’t be good!’ she thought. “Guess I shoul..ak..ou…ck” he faintly heard as she lost conscious.

Angel woke up the next day actually feeling good about what the day would hold. He knew they'd have to wait until the night to leave, but one more day in the hospital wouldn't be too long to wait. He had to go see the psychiatrist because of the fight and of course because of the door being broken, but he didn't care. He pretended that nothing was wrong and froze the pills like normal before he was let go and he threw them back up before going to get breakfast.

He looked around and waited for Claire to show up, but for some reason she was taking longer than normal. He got a little worried and wondered if she had decided to back out and avoid talking to him, because she thought he would be mad. he pushed the thought out of his head and began to look at the one place they needed to get into to escape the place. There was a small office-like booth that had safety glass all around it to prevent any of the patients from breaking in and opening the electronic door lock which kept them in the building.

The plan was to get the doll taken inside and have Claire possess it so she could press the button to open the door. Once that was done he would go into the booth and erase their files and they'd escape the hospital. They'd probably split up and go their separate ways and lead their own lives... Angel stopped for a moment and thought more carefully about the last part of his plan.

He really liked Claire, she was his only friend, and he knew how afraid she was normally around people. Being left alone once they were outside seemed like it would be a death sentence for her.
"No...when we're out of here we'll stick together. We're all we got in the world...we'll need to stick together to survive." he thought to himself.

He looked at the office more carefully and saw something he could only call a miracle. On the top of a standing shelf was Claire's doll sitting limp and lifelessly against a potted plant. Someone must've found it and took it in there for safe keeping.


"Wait...what happened to Claire? Is she still stuck in the doll?" he fearfully thought to himself. Angel got up and went to one of the orderlies. "What do you want, Angel?" the man asked as he grimaced at him. "I wanted to know if Claire was alright." Angel snapped at him. "Why isn't she here? Did something happen to her?" he asked thinking of all the possibilities and getting angrier with each one. "I don't know. She wouldn't wake up this morning. It's happened before, so it's fine. She'll probably be up sometime later. Now go back over there and make other friends, like a good boy."

Angel growled at the orderly, but held himself back from punching and/or freezing him. It wouldn't do him any good to be locked up if Claire would wake up eventually. For now...he'd just have to wait.

Claire didn’t wake up until late the next day. She woke gasping for air followed by a severely horrible migraine. She sat up in her bed and rubbed her face in hopes of settling her migraine some. She starts to remember the conversation she had with Angel last night and realized that they are going to try and do it today. When? She did not know…but it’s going to happen today.

She shifted the covers off of her as she stood went to change her clothing. As she was changing her clothing she looked on her dresser and saw that jack wasn’t there. She snapped her head back to the bed and saw he wasn’t there either or even in the room. She started to panic and then remembered what happened last night..Jack was taken..


“Shit! No!”, she huffed as she covered her face and let out a frustrated sigh. She could feel that things were a lot more difficult to handle without jack.

“Claire?”, her eyes darted in the direction of the voice to see Chris holding open the door open, "Come on, you have to head to the day room. I’ve let you sleep long enough.” She looked around her room to check for jack once again but still didn’t see him, “W..Where’s Jack?”she mumbled.

He gave her a confused look,
“Jack? Whose…wait your stuffed rabbit?” he asked unsurely. She nodded, “I'm sorry, I haven’t seen him.” He started. She physically and mentally deflated, 'How am I going to be able to even go anywhere in the room, I don't feel safe without him! My primary means of security was taken and no one’s seen him! One of the janitors probably found him and threw him away!' She could feel her heart begin to ache. “Don’t worry, Claire” she looked up at the nurse. “Angel’s out in the Day Room. Maybe he’ll know where Jack is.” he said reassuringly. Claire looked to the side; she completely forgot that she could talk to angel. She wasn’t too sure on how her body will react to him in person again; being in jack has a whole different feel to everything. She was just unsure of a lot of things now..she missed Jack.

She entered the Day room and her paranoia went from 0 to 120 the second she stepped into the room. She started to wring her fingers in her hands as she walked in but then her eyes ran over and saw Angel sitting at the same table as before. He looked rather annoyed so she approached the table hesitantly. As she approached the table she saw Angel smile at her, which relaxed her some. She sat down and placed her hands in her lap as she stared down at the table.

She didn’t feel as scared as she did yesterday when she first met Angel. That conversation must have helped her more than she thought.
“H-Hi..Angel.” she mumbled as she looked up and saw Angel staring back at her with his hand propping up his chin. “Do…D-do you know..where Jack is?” she stuttered.

Angel scowled at people as he waited for Claire to arrive making sure they'd leave him alone. After a few more hours of wait he finally saw Claire and he smiled happily. "Ok...she's here. Now all we need to do is wait for the day to go by. Then we'll finally be free of this place." he thought to himself.

"H-Hi Angel." he heard Claire mumble nervously as she took her seat. She looked a more nervous to him then before. She was constantly moving her hands and squeezing them together. "Do...d-do you know...where Jack is?" she stuttered.

The thought hadn't occurred to him that Claire might need the doll to help calm her down.
"Um...yeah. I know where he is, but...you can't get him back yet." he said softly. His tone of voice didn't mean much because she still gave him this hurt and confused look. "We need him where he is! Don't worry...he's right there in the reception office." he said while pointing at him.

He saw her snap to the direction he pointed and gasped as she saw the doll. She went to get up, but Angel touched her hand and pulled back when she squeaked in shock.
"I'm sorry Claire, but we need him to stay there. You can just...squeeze on my hand when you're scared." he said with a light blush on his face. It was kinda embarrassing to say, but he really couldn't think of anything else to say to her to make her feel comfortable enough not to go get the doll before it was time to leave. "I'll be your...'Jack' for now."

“…You can just..squeeze my hand you’re scared” he said as a flush on his cheek grew. Claire still held her hand back from when Angel had touched her hand. She pulled away primarily because she thought it was someone else and it set her anxiety off even more. She stared at Angel for a second then turned back to look at jack sitting in the reception room. “Jack…” she thought as she looked down.

“I’ll be your…’Jack’ for now.” He said softly. She looked back at Angel who was still blushing as he avoided her gaze. She stared at him for moment and sat in thought. She knew Angel couldn’t replace Jack but…maybe..maybe he can help her..at least until she get jack back. She doesn’t seem to have such a violent reaction to him immediately anymore but. That’s not to say she wont react badly like last night. She’s just, “..scared…” she mumbled.

Angel heard her low mumble and nervously smiled.
"I know, but i'll help you through it..." she looked down to the side and hesitantly walked over to sit in the chair closer to him. She felt completely on edge but…oddly calm for once in her life… she sat in the chair and wrung her hands slowly as she looked up at him. ‘I guess this is what it feels like…to trust someone…’ she thought.

She flinched as she saw angel offered his hand again with a faint smile and she stared at it as she started to feel her heartbeat pulse harder. She hesitantly lifted her hand and hovered it over Angel’s for a period of time. Her nerves where preventing her from doing anything else but she was making progress…she didn’t want to take steps back now. She decided to go for it and linked her pinkie with his. She shuddered out a sigh and tried to relax her hand some as she felt angel lower their hands. She looked up at Angel who flash her a smirk and she looked down at her lap and clutched the fabric of her pants and shirt with her free hand. She started to even out her breathing and surprisingly her body relaxed a bit more than she would have thought.

She never had been this close to another person without having a attack, even with her own mother sometimes. She wondered why she was able to relax to even this level with Angel when she just met him yesterday. She wondered what made this situation any different than when she had a moment yesterday… these types of feelings bewildered her in many ways. Maybe it was because she finally has…a friend...

Angel was surprised Claire actually went with his idea and held his pinky in hers. He had expected more, but seeing how she screamed the last time he touched her he called it progress. "Ok, It's time to tell you the plan. It's pretty simple, but we can't mess any of it up if we want to get away from this place." he said quietly to her. Claire nodded and he smiled lightly. "Ok, the first part is to meet up and take care of the floor nurse."

Claire visible tensed when he finished his sentence, and he knew she was scared.
"Don't worry! If things go right, we won't even see the floor nurse as we make our escape." he said nervously. He didn't want to scare her out of the plan. She could very well just tell him no still. Nothing was certain until it was in the past. Luckily for him, she relaxed and hooked her pinky with his again.

He smiled and continued explaining.
"Once we meet up we come back here and you possess Jack. There shouldn't be anyone in the reception office at that hour, so you'll be able to open the door for us and we'll sneak through there. After that we have to get to the doctor's office and delete the electronic files and the physical ones as well. Once that's done the only thing left to do is to leave through the front door and find a new place to live." he said with a smile.

Claire nodded in understanding and smiled at the end.
"Ok...the last thing I need to know is what room you're in, so I can find you at night." Angel said calmly. Claire wrote down her room number on a piece of paper and gave it to him so he wouldn't forget.

The rest of the day went by quickly and eventually it was time to go. Angel broke out of his room the same way he did the night before, but was extra careful to avoid letting the knob fall out. He wanted to make things as unnoticeable as possible until they were long gone. He carefully crept down the hallway and down the stairs. He looked around and checked the piece of paper and snuck up to the room that held Claire. He looked inside just to be sure and quietly opened the door.
"Claire! It's time to go!" he whisper yelled into the room.

Claire got out of bed and used her pillows and other things to make the illusion someone was still there before going outside of the room with him. They snuck out to the office and Angel turned to Claire quietly.
"Okay Claire. It's up to you now. Just do what you do and press that button. After that we'll almost be done with this place."

As angel explained the plan she started to tense up. She knew no matter what he said they would more than likely run into one of the nurse patrollers. Through out his explanation he even sounded nervous himself. She started to second-guess this plan, she nodded to his questions and proposals but she couldn’t hide the fact that she was still scared but still understood the importance to tonight.

"Ok...the last thing I need to know is what room you're in, so I can find you at night." He said pulling her from her thoughts. She scanned the table to a paper and pencil and scribbled down her number on the paper and slid it to him. She continued to sit by Angel would just sit there and scowl at anyone who came near. Yet it only showed how much she missed having Jack.

Soon lights out came by and she was escorted to her room and she sat in there and prepared for tonight’s excursions. She sat on her bed and stared at her dresser. She didn’t have anything on the top of it besides a brush and her toiletries. she laid down and stared at the wall as she thought about whats going to happen to them after they get out. She could go back to her home, she sure would be delighted to see her mother, as would her mother. But she wondered where would angel go? They never asked each other about where they would go.

She jumped as she heard the door crack,
“Claire! It’s time to go!” she heard someone whisper through the door. she turned and saw angel looked through the crack of the door. she sighed as she got up and made a make shift person under her covers with her pillows and some of her sweats. She slipped her shoes on and exited to the hallway to get a nod from Angel as they made their way to the day room entrance. She looked around and was surprised no one was patrolling her hall tonight usually Chris is patrolling the 3rd floor, right wing but she didn’t see anyone.

She watched angel touch the door handle and it began to freeze. He turned the handle and she heard something clang and drop to the floor on the otherside. He slowly opened the door and they slipped in as he closed the door back and froze the handle again.
"Okay Claire. It's up to you now. Just do what you do and press that button. After that we'll almost be done with this place." She looked up at him wide eyes. ‘It’s time already??’ she thought nervously. She looked to the side, "o-okay." and then exhaled deeply as she turned to have a clear light of sight with jack in the room. The darkness was making it hard to see him but she could make out his silhouette. She closed her eyes as she concentrated on him and felt her legs go weak and then felt herself fall.

She opened her eyes and saw a wall in front of her. She turned to feel something brush against her head. She stood up and realized she wasn’t on the floor anymore but on a platform. She looked down and saw she was standing on a book case and saw a white button sitting on the wall next to the phone on the wall. She looked out the window to the day room and saw Angel bent down talking to her body, he looked rather panicked and so did Claire. She never got used to seeing her body in front of her even from the few times she practiced.

She jumped down on the desk, knocking over some papers and such off upon her landing. He looked along the desk and approached button,
'I guess I just press this and we can get out..’ she thought as she continued to stare at the button. 'I don’t have much time to stall, so it’s now or never.’ She looked out the other window and saw angel standing up looking in this room for something frantically. She decided to just go for it and she pressed the button. She jumped at the loud beep that emitted from pressing the button. The tone lasted for a couple of seconds while she heard the locks unhinge and click. She turned as she heard a voice in the far distance. ‘no…’ she thought reluctantly.
