There are a few halls in the facility, as with the rest of the building survailance cameras are in the halls too. Although, not as much as the rest of the rooms, minus the paitent's rooms, there's actually a lot of spaces that are not covered by the cameras in the halls.

Caroline walked Sybil and showed her where the bathroom was. It looked like a typical public bathroom, but it also had showers and was actually nice and clean. Caroline leaned against the sinks and crossed her arms.

“Didn’t mean to scare you that much back there. You kinda have to act like an ass to get what you need in here. I’ll make sure people won’t hurt you alright?” Caroline said, her voice much kinder.

Sybil kept as much distance as possible from the woman as they walked through the halls and into the bathroom. Even as her voice shifted to a kinder one Sybil kept the distance and wouldn't get any closer. "U-Um... Thanks?" She quietly answered, trying to be polite and all but the only thing she needed protection from at the current moment was this woman who was offering to protect her. She wasn't really sure how to respond to that.

Sybil nodded a little and gave her a half smile. "U-Um... Sure. I'll take your word for it." She quietly replied. She had more trust in the authorities of the place, in the orderlies, then she had in a strange scary woman. Albeit, that trust was a little burnt when the orderly helped her earlier, but she still trusted them over Caroline for the time being.

Caroline just sighed and smiled. “Well let me know when you’re ready to head back. Here” she said, reaching into her pocket and pulling out a handful of watermelon candies. “These are delicious and make me in a slightly better mood. They also ground me when the” She stopped herself and shook her head. She looked back up at Sybil. “Just don’t let the orderlies catch you with them. They don’t like us having candy”

Sybil lowered her head a little when Caroline told her to say when she wanted to go back. "I... Never needed to use the bathroom... I was just trying to get away from you..." She quietly murmured. Although, now that the woman had calmed down a bit, it was a little less stressful here with one person rather then in the other room with many of them. So long as the woman kept her distance, she wasn't in much of a rush to go back.

She eyes the candies briefly, then gave the woman a questioning look as she spoke. "You... Do know this is a menatl hospital, right? It is rather silly to act as if you don't have a problem, or to try and hide it, everyone here has a problem." She pointed out

Caroline grabbed Sybil’s hand with surprising gentleness and dumped the candies in her palm.

“I don’t want people to know what it is that I have. They all probably think I am bi polar or some other mood disorder. It’s none of their business. It also... kinda makes the disorder worse”

Sybil gasped sharply and her entire body tensed when Caroline grabbed her hand, making a brief attempt to pull away before Caroline dumped the candies into her hand. She stopped, then looked up at her with a very confused expression. "But... I didn't want any..." She quietly murmured. She looked even more confused as Caroline spoke. "Telling people what it is makes it worse? How so? I don't know of any disorders that would get worse by telling someone else." She commented, before sheepishly eating two of the candies at once.

Caroline couldn’t help but laugh at her eating the candies but then the smile faded as she thought about how to answer.

“I don’t think I am ready to tell you just yet what I have but maybe after I get to know you a bit better I can.” Caroline answered in a soft voice.

"Oh I wasn't asking you to tell, simply was curious because I've never heard of a disorder like that before and I actually was a psychology major." Sybil quietly spoke, before eating another candy. "But if you want to keep it a secret you need to be more careful. You were seeing things when you spoke to me... Or, at least, you were looking at something that wasn't there and were freaking out a little. Maybe it was hearing things, but I'm betting on seeing things." She quietly spoke. "It was the only reason I gave in to follow you, I got worried something was wrong." She said, taking yet another of the delicious watermeleon candies.

Caroline was surprised. “You are the first person who has noticed...” Caroline took a deep breath. She figured what’s the harm in telling her? She’s obviously a sub and she was a psych major.

“I have paranoid Schizophrenia. It makes my hallucinations and stuff worse because when I tell people I have it, they look towards where I’m hallucinating and make it more real and terrifying”

"I-I am confused, didn't you want to get to know me better first? What did you learn over the last few seconds?" Sybil asked, before eating another candy. "Other then the fact that the watermeleon candies are my favorite. But that just proves that I'm human, because only an alien would prefer a different flavor when the candy offers a watermeleon one." She quietly spoke.

"But to be fair... I was diagnosed with Hypochondria. I tend to freak out if I or anyone has an injury, illness, scars, and all that. Not sure how much that applies to mental illnesses. I assume we'll find out." She added.

"You were the first person other than one of the docs to recognize when I am seeing things. You also said you were a psych major yourself so it was only a matter of time until you figured it out. Anyway we should head back before the orderlies drag us back. They like us to stick to the schedule." Caroline said rolling her eyes.

"Don't you worry, I will keep you supplied with those. Give me until tomorrow and I'll give ya a whole bag. Just make sure you hide it well in case of room searches." Caroline joked. She then offered her arm with a kind smile, offering to lead Sybil back.

Sybil listened to her reasoning and nodded a little, it made sense in a logical sort of way. When Caroline said she would get her a whole bag of the candies her eyes widened a little, but she quickly looked away. "It's not that important. I just like them." She said quietly. "If we're not supposed to have them then you should probably hold onto the bag if you get one. I'm no good at hiding anything." She softly spoke. She hesitated a little when Caroline offered her an arm and took a half step away. "I... Can walk on my own. I don't... Really like being close to people." She quietly spoke, but took a few steps towards the door to head back. As she approached the door she could hear everyone else leaving the common room to go out and exercise.

Caroline nodded. "Sure I can hold on to them, That is probably better. It'll make ya more likely to talk to me" Caroline said teasingly. She opened the door for Sybil and would lead her to where exercise time was held.
