The walls of Mills Mental Institution cause all visitors and patients to lose their mind without a second thought. You'd be lucky to escape this hell with a mind still intact and a beating heart. Patients enter the doors but it's rare for them to leave with a sense of who they once where before entering. It's said those who stay here never return to who they once were. It's a miracle to make it out in one piece.

Did the baby get her temper tantrum out?” He continued to laugh as he walked around me.

I stuttered again, “W-What are you going to do to me?”

He shrugged and placed his finger on the tip of the knife. “Not sure yet. This is only our beginning, you know. I don’t want to scare you too badly.” He smirked.
