I'm Mad About You ( for me and NightSage)
Mel sighed as she lay on her small queen sized bed and looked at the other side of her room. "It won't be just my room for long..."she thought with a sigh as she looked over at the furniture at the other side of the room. All of Mel's stuff used to be in the middle of the room but a few days ago they moved her stuff to one side and brought in a matching bed, desk, chair and wardrobe. The only difference between each side of the room now was Mel and the gangs personal belongings.
That's what everyone had started to call them now: the gang. They worked together now for the most part and like a gang some had more control than others. Most of the time it was just Mel but unlike the other she had little control over when she dispersed the only thing she had control over was...Tara. Tara wasn't like the rest of the gang Tara wasn't allowed to have conversation's in Mel's head Tara stayed locked up in what Mel and her doctor called the mental prison. Mel found it funny that she was basically in prisoned and inside her head there was someone else in prisoned.
Mel has lived at the institution for coming up to ten years now. She arrived here when she was 9 and she...no Tara killed her step dad. When she first arrived she stayed on the third floor. There was three floors here, well five if you included the ground floor where the lobby and visiting area was and the basement where most of the equipment was kept. On the other floors was patients rooms and the facilities they could use.
The top floor was the third. That was high security everyone there was locked in there room and barely allowed to move. They were sedated most of the time. The second floor was still high security but the patients had a bit more freedom and could move around and do things but didn't interact. The first floor where Mel stayed now was low security. You could go where you please as long as you were in your bedroom at 9, showed up for meals and went to appointments with your doctor.
It took Mel years to get to the first floor she first moved to the room she was in now when she was 16. That was the first time she really had control of Tara. Tara hasn't got out for almost a year now and hadn't hurt anyone since before Mel moved to the first floor. Mel hadn't heard from any of her alters in over a month. She thinks that is why she is being given a room-mate. It doesn't feel like much of a reward though.
