Revised Edition of the Lake Demon Chapter Forty-Nine


Chapter Forty-Nine:
“Are you in a lot of pain, Garry?” asked Dr. Weisenthall. It looks like you took an awful beating from that passenger on the bus. The doctor could see Garry flinch when he was sitting on the couch. Garry was trying hard to find a position in which he would be comfortable.
“You mean the psycho on the bus that attacked me?” asked Garry.
“If that’s the way you choose to identify him,” replied the doctor.
“I know what he is,” Garry responded. “In answer to your original question, yes, I am in a great deal of pain. I can barely find a part of my body where it doesn’t hurt.
“I can help you with the manifestations of your physical trauma fairly easily. Here take two of these Tylenol 3s. You should start getting some relief from your physical pain in less than fifteen minutes. Garry, you said you know what the perpetrator of your assault is. What is he specifically?”
“Oh he’s not the only one on that bus. The bus is infested with them”
“With what?” asked the doctor.
“There not human. They’re aliens. A particular group of aliens that can change themselves into either a human or reptilian form at will.” answered Garry.
“Are these creatures dangerous?”
“That’s an understatement. They are out to take control of the earth and all its inhabitants.”
“Have you seen these aliens anywhere else or at any other time?”
“Nearly every day. My parents are reptilian creatures. They often change form. That’s why I got on the Greyhound bus. To get away from them. I was planning on talking to my aunt and uncle who live in Saskatchewan. They must know that my parents are reptilians and I was hoping that I could live with them.”
Is there anywhere else that you have seen theses alien creatures?
“I often can pick out some of them in a crowd when I walk downtown. Even if they disguise their reptilian features I recognize them by the sounds that they make.”
“What do the sounds sound like?”
“It’s hard to describe. Only dogs and people with my auditory sensitivity can hear them. The sounds they make sound evil and eerie.”
“Life must be very scary for you, Garry?” asked Dr. Weisenthall.
“Yes, it is. I always have to be in a state of hyper vigilance,” answered Garry.
“That must be very taxing on your system.”
“Yeah, I feel exhausted most of the time.”
“Well, I’m glad that we had a chance to meet today, Garry. I think that I will be able to help you with some of your issues. Your medical condition is not curable but fortunately, it’s treatable.”
“What medical condition?!” shouted Garry who was now visibly agitated.
“Now calm down, Garry. You have schizophrenia, most likely paranoid schizophrenia.”
“So you still think I’m nuts!”
“No, you are not nuts. You have a treatable medical condition. You will be staying in the hospital for a week or two until we can get you stabilized. I will start by putting you on some antipsychotic medications.”
“I’m not staying in this hospital so that you can feed me a bunch of dangerous drugs.”
After saying that Garry bolted out the door of Dr. Weisenthal’s office. The psychiatrist then yelled to two male psychiatric nurses who were doing their rounds in the hall, “Jerry, Matthew. Restrain that young man!”
The two male nurses were able to grab a hold of Garry and wrestle him to the floor.
Dr. Weisenthall who was now in the hall caught up with Jerry and Matthew while Garry continued to struggle and kick on the floor. The doctor, a little out of breath, called out to a nurse in the office,” Kylie, go get the restraints. After Garry was put in the restraints he was given an injection of Haldol. The nurses and Dr. Weisenthall stayed with Garry until the medication took effect. As soon as Garry had stopped struggling and appeared to be groggy, the psychiatric team held Garry and laid him down in an open patient’s room.
“This young man is very ill, said the doctor. I want all the nurses involved to write up an Incident Report. I am going back to my office to write up my report of what just transpired. I will be going home in a couple of hours. I will leave written instructions with the nurses. When the evening shift comes on I want them fully debriefed on what just occurred with this young man and the necessary interventions that were deemed necessary. Also let the evening staff know that they can call me on my cell if the patient starts to decompensate again this evening.”
