Chapter Twenty-Three

After two months of ‘treatment’, I was discharged and allowed to go home under close observation. To be quite honest, the doctors, psychiatrists, and nurses should be the ones being observed closely because they just spent two months treating a patient who was perfectly fine.

The past two months of my life were plagued with one boring psychiatry session after another and all I could do was hope for the end of it. To make sure that end came quickly, I stopped saying anything related to the vampires and was pleased to see that it worked.

My mom picked me up from the hospital and I was so happy to see that she was fine. It was such a relief to know the vampires hadn’t done anything to her in my absence. She was more than ecstatic to have me back home and it felt great to see her happy again.

Just looking at her smiling face made me wish things would remain this way and I wouldn’t have to deal with any of the craziness again. We drove home to a surprise party organized by Trina Bayle.

The food was amazing, but I went all out for the drinks. I turned eighteen in the hospital and since I couldn’t get an actual party in there, I wanted to celebrate. When it was evening, everyone went home, except Trina and a few others who stayed back to help with cleaning.

“It’s great to have you back, Selena. We’ll be twin bunnies this Halloween.” Trina said, drawing my attention to what day it was.

I gave her a smile but my mind quickly went back to Halloween which was just two days away. I couldn’t stop myself from thinking about it.

Am I really going to die in two days, or has all of it gone away with my ‘treatment’?

The thought made me shudder slightly but I decided to hope for the best. I hadn’t heard anything from the vampires in a while and I took that as a very good sign.
