“That’s it. I didn’t mean to offend. You seem like a lady of ‘fine upbringing’.”
I laughed. “No offense taken, and if you mean I sound like a nasty bitch, then you’re barking up the right tree.”
She smiled. “Something like that. So, uh…where are we? Really, I mean.”
I shrugged. “You think I’d be putting up with half this bullshit if I had even the foggiest of notions?”
“They don’t let us out?”
“No, they don’t let us out, and there’s no playground. I don’t know the last time I saw the sunlight. I mean, real sunlight, not filtered through this crap,” I said, and knocked on the plexiglas window.
“I was afraid of that. Do you know much about their group?”
“I’ve seen five people in my time here. Not counting this room’s former, other occupant.”
She glanced around the room. “I’m not your first roommate?”
“Nope. Used to be a girl named Gina in here with me.”
Gina. To this day, I can still hear her screams. I wondered what they’d done with her body.
