Keeping her stable or messing with her mind?
“I stopped taking my pills because I wanted something to happen…”
Ever since Marta and Hector have known each other, Marta has obediently been taking her pink pills. Hector tells her that it keeps her on an even keel. Without them, she begins to fall apart.
But once Marta stops taking her pills, things start to change. She starts seeing things around the house: clumps of hair in the sink, objects out of their usual places, and a skinny blonde girl who is trying to tell her something. Marta begins to wonder whether the pills aren’t to make her better, but to stop her from finding out who she really is.
Marta has stopped taking her pills because she’s bored. Now that Kylan is gone, there’s less for her to do around the house, and the silence is unnerving. Perhaps, if something does happen, Kylan will have to come back to take care of her.
