Mary was strolling down the alleys of the big...house? Was it a house? It was a friendly place for sure, but it wasn't were her parents were...oh well, she'd call it a house anyway, it seemed natural to say so.
She remembered her arrival here. She had been taken to see the Egg (oh, she knew she was supposed to say "Director", but there was no fun it that, was there now?), who she hadn't found entirely reassuring. She liked dr. Jiminy though. He was nice. He also seemed to understand her so well! After a quick chat, a medical visit, a small tour, another chat, a small pause, a third talk, longer than the others this time, and finally a quick supper on her own in he large Cantine, she was finally alone, in her room. It was rather bare, to be honest... It was 10 meters by 10 meters, and about 5 meters high. The whole ceiling was a single piece of strange glass that glowed a warm and welcoming light, that she could adjust. In the centre of the room lay her bed. That was about it. The walls and the floor were white, made of some sort of panels. The bed was white, the sheets were white, even the book that lay on the floor was white. She liked that too, it made her feel...pure.
Every day, it was the same routine: Get up, wash, eat, go strolling,... Sometimes she met 'Pan' in the corridors. She liked talking to him. He was nice. Also quite pretty... Of course, she used to be allowed to go into the gardens outside, but now, she was only allowed out once a week, and then again, only under guard. Wasn't that strange?
Mary thoughtfully wondered about all the bizarre events that had happened here since she had arrived. And then she started having a rather dangerous idea. Why was she here again? ...
The Cyborg Transhuman
Red was walking along with two guards through a long white hallway. On her side she saw metal doors, she already knew where she was going, the Solitary Confinement. She hated if she was sent there, but she also, for some reason, can't remember what she does when she isn't in there. Luckily there was someone in the room next to her who she sometimes would have a talk with. She also knew that there also was a patient in the second cell, but she never met that patient, or even has spoken to her.
Red was being guided by two large man who worked as soldiers in the asylum and also by a little pink pig, who's name was Iggy. She and Iggy could communicate with each other well. Iggy once told her the reason why he started working in Ever After. Iggy had an encounter with the Big Bad Wolf. Red knew about the evil creature that resided in the enchanted forest of Grimmoire but luckily never had an encounter with it.
"Sorry Red that you have to stay here for a little while." Iggy said who was walking next to her. "And I-I'm afraid that it will be longer than you usually do." the pig said.
"Okay..." Red said gloomy. She had a sad face and looked towards the ground.
"B-But see it on the bright side. You won't have to do any s-sessions for a little while." Iggy tried to cheer Red up, Red felt bad for making her only friend sad too and gave him a small smile but quickly looked down again. Iggy opened her cell and Red walked into it. "Try to enjoy from your rest." Iggy said and closed the door.
Red sat down on the ground with her head against the wall. She tried to hear what was happening in the cell next to hers. She heard some noises of someone talking to himself, or... she really didn't know who he was talking to, it is a complete mystery to her. She then heard nothing and began to speak.
"Tom? Tom are you still awake." Red said. Tom was mostly spending his day sleeping, as he never was allowed to get out. He told that the only time he gets out is when Professor Cricket wants to study his boots.
"Yeah, I'm still up." Tom said who also crawled towards his wall. "What's up Red?"
"I have to stay in my cell for a longer time now. I don't know if I can handle that."
"Just do what I mostly do, sleeeeep."
"That's an option."
"The only option." Tom corrected her.
"Yeah, I think I should get some sleep then. I must say I'm actually getting really tired now." Red said and yawned.
"Well, thanks. Just trying to have a conversation with you and you get bored and fall asleep." Tom chuckled. Red chuckled too.
"Sleep well." Red said and headed towards the bed in the middle of the room.
"Goodnight." Tom said and lied down on the soft floor.
