โ€œStop him.โ€

The words whisper behind me, blowing an invisible breeze through my hair and sending a chill up my spine. My heart pounds in my chest so loudly it echoes in the sterile room.
Those words.

Immediately, I know sheโ€™s here. Judy LeClerq has come to show herself to me. Unfortunately, those two words are all Iโ€™ll get out of her. Theyโ€™re all I ever get out of any of them. Two words that lead to nowhere.

This is what I tried to tell Odyn. This isnโ€™t a gift. Even if I wanted to speak to them, they donโ€™t tell me anything I can use to help them. Itโ€™s like a disjointed dance where two different songs are playing and none of the steps are on the beat.

Still, I know she wonโ€™t rest until I face her, so taking a deep breath, I turn around and face whatโ€™s become my cross to bear.

And scream.

The shaking starts at my knees and works its way up every inch of my body until it reaches my lips. I stumble backward, clanging into pans and hoses until I have nowhere left to run.

Until Iโ€™m literally backed into a corner.

Until Iโ€™m face to face with Judy LeClerq.

Not her spirit, but the woman who had just been lying on the exam table with a sheet over her face.
