Chris and Duke along with Ed Linders are out looking for scavengers when they spot Jenna Douglas by herself. Linders notices a strait jacket nearby but doesn't mention it to the others. They take Jenna back to the train where she is attended to by Dr. David Miller. He has above average skills as he trained for years in Europe with several doctors who were trying new methods with mental patients. Jenna is a widow who husband was in the Civil War but has panic attacks especially related to fires. After she rebuffs a pass by Linders, he reveals the strait jacket which indicates she escaped from a mental hospital. It causes most of the members of the train to shy away from her but Dr. Miller who she is riding with tells her he can help her if she will cooperate. Slowly she opens up to him eventually revealing the truth about her and her husband but at the same time she becomes involved with the doctor. Written by Anonymous
