“I’m lonely. No one to talk with anymore,” said the thin, gray-faced woman. “The voices were such company.”
“But you know now that the voices were never real, don’t you? And they told you to do bad things.”
“Yes, but they were my only friends.”
“I’m your friend, Hannah.”
“But you wanted to make the voices go away, Doctor.”

“You are my true friends. He couldn’t hear you. That’s why he had to go.”
