    Asylum- an institution for the maintenance and care of the mentally ill, orphans, or other persons requiring specialized assistance.

    In this challenge, you yourself are in an Asylum. Are you a worker, or are you one of the poor souls that are trapped in it? Describe the Asylum. For example; What does it look like? Is it new, or is it crumbling from age? What is it like? Do you see it as a safe haven, or do you see it as hell? How did you get here? Did your friends/family think you needed to come here, or did you commit a heinous crime? In this challenge, you will write a short story about life in the Asylum. Write about the possible horrors that lie within it.
