Sam returned home from work at six. Amy already started setting the table.
"Hey there Sweetie." Sam kissed her on the forehead and then began rummaging through the refrigerator. "Where's Leo?"
"I dunno, Mom." Amy was busy mashing potatoes. "Dr. Simms called. She said to call her as soon as you get in."
Sam hurried into her bedroom and closed the door. Amy knew nothing of Leo's problem and she wanted to keep it that way.
Dr. Simms was solemn. "Mrs. Bryan, Leo didn't show up for his appointment with the psychiatrist."
"I guess he didn't mention it to you. Has he confided in you about the content our sessions?"
"Well...he thinks he sees monsters everywhere. He says they're stalking my daughter. Frankly, it scares the hell out of me."
