The alarm goes off immediately in your brain, the psychosis announces its intense irruption. Children appear, always appear.

But sometimes they don't. Seconds and minutes pass, you walk the bright corridors wrapped in a feeling of unreality. You notice how people watch you move restlessly. You ask for help but no one has seen your little one.
