Beyond The Holders

From Behind the Desk
To: Dr. Kessler DClinPsych - Hospital Administrator
Since I started working here, I've noticed bizarre happenings on an infrequent, but disturbingly frequent enough, basis. Random visitors come to the desk and ask to see somebody called "The Holder" of one of various, normally intangible, things. Immediately after that, something happens. I don't know what it is, but shortly after a whiteout I seem to still be standing at reception,though the clock clearly indicates some lost time - sometimes over an hour. A few times I was fatigued, or felt freshly washed. Once, the feeling of cleanliness was accompanied by the taste of blood and small amounts of it under my nails.
I don't know what is happening, and I hope I'm not falling ill to the insanities of our patients, but it is starting to make me wonder if I don't in fact belong in one of our padded cells... I suffer parasomnia, often having terrible nightmares involving these "Holders." I've taken the liberty of writing out my resignation should you request it, and I get the feeling you will.
One last thing, a thought. I notice this hospital has been through a number of reception nurses recently, and I can't help but to wonder if maybe this is related. Has anybody else experienced these phenomena? It's unlikely, but it would bring me a little peace.
