ERICKA (18) sits on the fluffy black couch. She wears a t-shirt and jeans; she looks perfectly normal. Her backpack sits on the couch beside her. The wall behind her is a window, revealing a courtyard garden. Erick stares at the few leafless trees and snowy paths. DR. MABLE (42) enters and sits opposite her on a similarly comfy chair. She holds a clipboard and pen.
