Well, if you want to go back, alright.

But you can wait in my office

till time for the next train.

Can't I stay here?

That would be a pretty long wait.

You better come along, Miss Calvin.

Drink this.

Slowly and in small sips.

People who just came out of the hospital

should take everything that way.

How do you know

I'd been in the hospital?

Oh, I know quite a bit about you.

You know the Lamonts,

you're just out of the hospital,

and you're on your way to Rosignol.

- You know my aunt and uncle?

- Only by name.

Finish your medicine.

I picked up the things that fell out

of your purse when you fainted.

There was a letter addressed to you

at the Courtland Hospital in New Orleans

Feel better?

- Yes, thanks.

- I thought you would.

You shouldn't feel so upset

about fainting on the platform.

The heat was enough to flatten anybody.

It wasn't only the heat

or that I'd been ill.

It was...

It was the fear of being all alone.

Of having no one to turn to.

Not anyone.

You see, my aunt and uncle

are my only relatives.

And they're perfect strangers.

I haven't even seen them.

Then they weren't at the station,

I thought they'd gone back to New York.

They'd hardly do that

if they thought you were coming.

You ought to like Rosignol.

It's a perfect place to convalesce after

After whatever it was

you were in the hospital for.

I was on the Valdera.

I read about the Valdera.

Only four of us survived.

I woke up in a hospital in New Orleans.

I'm constantly tormented

by the nightmare of the open boat.

I thought it would drive me insane.

I was afraid someday it would be

the same whether I was awake or not.

I wanted to give in.

But they forced me back.

Dr. Winter wrote to my aunt

and they said they wanted me.

But they weren't at the station.
