Alice’s Dream

Alice was a junkie. Heroin was the drug of choice. She overdosed once and went into a coma. No one came to visit her in the hospital, no one cared. Doctors considered switching the machines off. Only one doctor refused, she felt pity for the junkie. Despite the malnutrition and heroin abuse, Alice was a pretty girl.

The doctor stayed behind to look after the patient. She worried that Junkie won’t wake up.
