"A Tale of Birds Without A Voice"

First flew the greedy pelican, 
Eager for the reward,
White wings flailing.

Then came a silent Dove,
Flying beyond the pelican,
As far as he could.

A Raven flies in,
Flying higher than the dove,
Just to show he can.

A Swan glides in, 
To find a peaceful spot,
Next to another bird.

Finally out comes a Crow,
Coming quickly to a stop, 
Yawning and then napping.

Who will show the way,
Who will be the key, 
Who will lead to
The silver reward?

Chapter 3:
 "Manifestation of Delusions"
...Poltergeists are among these. Negative emotions, like fear, worry, or
stress manifest into external energy with physical effects. Nightmares
have, in some cases, been shown to trigger them. However, one such
phenomenon doesn't appear to happen to just anyone. Although it's not
clear why, adolescents, especially girls, are prone to such occurrences.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Memo Title: Farytale Lizard
Hearing this, the hunter armed with bow and arrow said, "I will kill the
lizard." But upon meeting his opponent, he held back, taunting "Who's
afraid of a reptile?" At this, the furious lizard hissed, "I'll swallow
you up in a single bite!" Then the huge creatured attacked, jaws open
wide. This was what the man wanted. Calmly drawing his bow, he shot into
the lizard's gaping mouth. Effortlessly the arrow flew, piercing the
defenseless maw. And the lizard fell down dead.

Asked the Doctor to let me quit being in charge of that patient.

It's too weird. Still alive, but with wounds that won't heal.

Told the doctor I quit. Won't work at that Hospital anymore. The room is
filled with insects. Even with the doors and windows shut, they get in to
spite me.

To the Hospital... Feeling bad. Need to throw up. But nothing comes out.
Vomiting only bile. Blood and pus flow from the bathroom faucet. I try to
stop it, but it won't turn off.

Need drug. Help me...
