    And then everything happened at once. The curtain was shoved aside and a young woman was unstrapping her. As soon as she had a hand free, Karen was scrabbling to free her other hand. She sat up and looked around now that she could see as she rifled through her mind. "I... I know CPR, but that's not going to help with a seizure!" Her eyes fell to the file folder at her feet. "Did he have a file? Does it say anything about him having seizures and what to do about them?" She didn't even know what was in her file, but she'd worry about that when someone wasn't having a medical emergency in a hospital that was apparently run by a crazy person.

    Mel's fingers fell away from the door and she gaped a moment at the thrashing man on the floor. She remembered something about letting the seizure run out and giving them pillows or something. She remembered Not-Married-to-Jeremy was a lifestyle coach and maybe she had some useful training. After all, you couldn't have any style if you had no life. "I'll get help," she also remembered not to let Not-Married-to-Jeremy near the alleged dead body. Mel held her crowded thoughts in her brain and charged off in the direction of where she had heard Not-Married-to-Jeremy's voice come from. Slamming the curtains aside as she did so and hurriedly unbuckled Not-Married-to-Jeremy's right arm. When it was free, Mel moved down to her legs, thinking that Not-Married-to-Jeremy could free her other arm. "He's having a seizure. Deep Voice is I mean. There's another girl. She was just chucked in with us. Can you help? I dunno nothing about this stuff," Mel gabbled as she undid the unbuckles.

    She had been pushed to the side and Amanda watched the girl try the door. Part of her wanted to feel offended by her actions, but a small part of her hoped she could open that door. "I'm not sure what yo-" That's when she heard a strange sound. It sounded like something slapping the ground. A hard smack repeated again and again. The sound pulled her from her shocked dazed and she turned to see a man on the ground. Her eyes widened as she got up half way and was already trying to sprint to him. She slid to his side on her knees once she was close and tried to hold him down. "Can any of you help here? He's having a bad reaction to something! He needs help," she said. Damn it! She really wished she had taken some kind of medical training. She had no idea what to do, besides try to hold him down. "PLEASE! What do we do? Or I? Or something. He needs help. He's seizing."

    "What's going on? What's that sound?" She couldn't see what was going on, surrounded by the blue curtains as she was. She couldn't get up or really even move all that much. She was feeling very vulnerable and helpless and confused. What do I tell my clients when they feel like this? Well... what she usually told her clients was, "Don't worry, I'm here to help." And... that wasn't all that helpful right now.

    Before any of the others could react. Hector seemed to just fall over and start spasming. @kit @Socks @Andromeda

    "I'm not married!" she retorted. "And if I were, I wouldn't marry Jeremy. He's my client and he's just not my type anyway." Because she could focus on what the disembodied voice had said or she could respond to the things that at least made some sort of sense and didn't send unnerving chills down her spine. "I'm Karen Newcomb," she said to all the voices. "I'm a very successful lifestyle coach." Well, that was probably stretching things a little. A lot. But it was important to project success at all times. And much better to project success than think about what the voice had said. What did they do to me - to all of us - while I was unconscious? Oh god, oh god, what sort of side effects? What if it's like that study I read about where some of the people went blind? I don't want to be blind!

    Hector wasn't certain how the girl got out of the straps but at this point didn't much care. He sat back on the ground and listened to the mad woman on the speaker with a hollow expression that didn't change when the new woman was thrust into the room.

    "Oh for fucks sake." Mel muttered as if she had never panicked before. Or felt fear before. Or empathised with the cute girl on the ground. Thing was, she had felt all those things. Felt them now but they were useless emotions and fucking unhelpful. "I'm Mel. That's Mr Deep Voice. Mrs Jeremy is still tied to the bed or something." She grabbed the girl on the ground and shoved her away from the door. Then Mel grabbed the door and tried to open it.
  10. Andromeda

    So it begins

    The sudden thrust by the orderly caused the woman to lose her footing and she found herself falling onto the ground. Landing on her stomach, she felt the air from her lungs give out a bit. Her eyes ached under the blarring lights of the room. She noticed there were others here with her. Amanda could hear the person on the microphone. A cold shiver went down her spine when she heard that soon she would come to their room. As silence came back, so did her fears as she had been dragged. "Where are we? Who the hell are all of you?" Panic was setting in as she sat up, sitting back on her ass and her hands were shaking. What the fuck was going on?

    So it begins

    "I am Dr Quixn, with an X N not an N N," she explained as if that made a difference to the people in the room. "WELCOME TO THE PROGRAM!" she said loudly as if it were some sort of triumph. "You have been chosen to test one of our latest products that I made!" she said to them. "Obviously... there's some side effects," she said mentioning the dead man but not outright saying it. "So... what is it supposed to do you ask? Welllll... you'll see," she said excitedly! Suddenly there was a turn of a key at the single door, a person was thrown in by a large orderly before the door was closed and locked again. (In comes @Andromeda) "So... I'll talk to you all later. I'll be in your room soon!" she said. @kit @Socks @Garmr

    Hector gave rude girl a hard look but chose to say nothing. When she started to jerk about he stopped trying to loosen or undo the straps giving her the stare of 'if you're going to make this harder for me then I'm not going to help.' He screech of the microphone caused him to wince and he looked up at the ceiling where he assumed the speaker was and frowned.

    "Can I see?" Mel winced, no that sounded wrong. Before she could explain what she meant, a bodiless voice proceeded by an electronic scream ripped through the room. Mel winced and worked on rapidly freeing herself, too impatient to wait for Deep Voice to finish the job. Once she was free, she had every intention of running for the exit.

    Karen squeaked in shock at the sudden feedback screech and looked to the ceiling. "Where are we? What's going on?!" she yelled.
  16. This is for Harlee
  17. Morrigan

    So it begins

    There was a loud high pitched screech from a microphone being too close to another electric device. "No... no... Harlee... give it back," would be the first thing they heard. "Mine... nope... I made it I get to talk," the mousy voiced woman said. "HELLO Subjects!" she started and waited for them to respond. @kit @Garmr @Socks
  18. Socks

    So it begins

    Karen continued to yell variations on "HELLO!", "WE'RE IN HERE!", and "HELP!" until she realized that wasn't getting a response. She stopped and caught her breath and tried to focus, but her brain was a jumble of places and people and how badly she just Didn't Want To Be Here. And then something occurred to her. "Jeremy! Jeremy will call the police." Her current client was anxious and high-strung. It wasn't outside the realm of possibility. "...unless he thinks I abandoned him the way everyone else in his life does." She groaned in annoyance. She was mostly talking to herself (though in a perfectly-audible volume). "Okay, so maybe Jeremy won't call the police, but... someone will. Right? Someone had to have seen something or... or..." It was starting to dawn on Karen just how alone she was in her life. Who was there who would miss her? She only talked to her parents when it was the holidays or someone's birthday. "Does anyone know what day it is?" she asked weakly.

    Hector winced a little at being shouted at, it reminded him of when he was still married and still drinking. He sighed and reminded himself that other peoples feelings were not his responsibility and chose not to even respond to the one he'd dubbed "rude girl" in his head. He set to work on the straps on his ankles, much easier and quicker since he had the use of both his hands. Once free he slid off the bed to the floor in the soundless way he used to when he was sneaking out of the house before his wife woke up. He had never cheated on Diane, at least not with another woman, but the bottle had been a cruel mistress. He smoothed his hands over his shirt and decided it was best to try to calm down 'desperate woman' before attending to rude girl. Stepping out from behind the curtain he noticed the fourth bed. Odd, he hadn't heard anyone other than rude girl and desperate woman. He walked towards it and pulled back the curtain... he cursed and closed the slid the curtain back in place. Well, guess he was attending to rude girl first... she might be able to hold it together enough so they could both handle desperate woman. He moved to the next curtain and slid it open, "Hey." He walked towards the bed and reached for the first strap, once he was near her head he murmured just loud enough so only rude girl could hear, "There is a dead body in the next bed. I don't think we're in a hospital. Don't tell the other lady, we need to get her calmed down if we're to get out of here. Can you do that?" @kit

    Mel reckoned they were all pegged as insane and now they were all trussed up in asylum and no one would be helping them. And Mr Deep Voice was just fucking around doing fuck knows what. Mel's mouth twisted. "Well get your fucking legs free, idiot!" Mel shouted over Miss I Love My Husband hollering for someone who'll probably just stuff her with drugs to make her docile.

    Karen, in fact, did not notice the man's comment. She'd heard something else: the click of heels in the hallway outside. "Wait... Wait, do you hear that?" It never occurred to her that this might not be a good idea. She wanted OUT, she wanted AWAY. She made sure her voice was nice and loud, to be heard over whatever it was that other person was doing that was causing such a ruckus. "HEY, HELLO! CAN YOU HELP US?! WE NEED HELP IN HERE, PLEASE!!!!" Her normally-pleasant voice (she'd been in choir in church in her youth, she could carry a tune quite nicely, thank you) broke with her desperation as she yelled that last word.
  22. Morrigan

    So it begins

    Outside, the only person that could hear it would be Karen. Barely over the sound of Mel's rocking of her bed. She would hear the click of a pair of heels just outside of the room. They would echo and then get quieter within only a few seconds but no one would stop by the room. @Garmr @Socks @kit

    So it begins

    As one woman babbled and the other... well, Hector wasn't entirely certain what she was doing though it was loud... he concentrated on getting the strap off. He had turned his right hand underneath the strap so that the fingers could assist the lest adept left hand and soon he had managed to get it at the very least loose. "Big money, big money, no whammies..." he murmured and then... he slid his right hand out. "Got my hands free," he announced as he sat up, rubbing his wrists. He could sense the desperation from the first woman but had long learned from many an overstrung lounge performer and an over dramatic ex-wife that catering to it wasn't helpful. It was then that he noticed that his cuff links were gone and he frowned, he did a brief once over the world of his cloths and realized a lot of things were missing. Now the feeling of dread was getting worse. "I don't think this is a hospital," he said though he doubted the others would notice.

    So it begins

    "I mean, how long have we been here and there's no nurse, no doctor, no nothing? And what's with the straps? I mean that's just rude!" There was a small part of Karen that was terrified. She had no idea what was going on or where she was or who she was with or who had decided to strap her down or how they'd even gotten her here in the first place and the ideas her brain could conjure if she let it were too horrible to think about. So she didn't think. She babbled. "I don't think there even is a call button, and there's a file folder here just left on the foot of the bed and that's just unprofessional, like, what am I? A table? I don't think so! I am a human being and I deserve some common decency and I'M SORRY BUT YOU COULD STOP WHATEVER IT IS THAT YOU'RE DOING THAT'S MAKING THAT NOISE?!" ((directed @kit and the rocking))

    Mel scowled at the ceiling. Ladies. She bet Mr Deep Voice was a smooth talker. All false smiles and flashy money. She bet he was a real prick. Miss Jeremy fucker was probably just as conniving. Having resolved to dislike them both, Mel put her brand of problem solving to the test. She couldn't rip her arms out of the straps. Couldn't cut them. She couldn't see any bloody button to call a nurse. Without further ado, she started to rock her bed, trying to making it tip over and figuring that the crash would bring someone.

    Unfortunately for all three all electronic devices would not work, they would get no signal and be unable to find a wi-fi connection. Additionally, they would also notice soon that all of their jewelry and valuables had been stripped as well including Hector's cuff links. @kit @Garmr @Socks
