Résumé in hand, cute and naïve college coed Ashley Anderssen stands ominously in front of an unkempt and decrepit looking building.
Ashley has spent the last few years studying to become a nurse and has worked tirelessly to achieve an excellent grade point average resulting in a slew of awards and scholarships as well as high praise and recognition from her professors and classmates.
One evening, while taking a break from writing a well thought out and articulate paper for her Health Sciences, Ashley decided to take some time to research a few potential internships that might be available in her college town.
Considering that Ashley has traveled abroad for her latest semester of schooling, she resides in a small town that she is fairly unfamiliar with.
After continuing down a long rabbit hole of searching the web, Ashley finds a posting for a local facility called Forest Grove that is looking for intelligent and enthusiastic young ladies who would be willing to take part in a program designed to give them very valuable firsthand experience into the various roles of a functioning hospital. Ashley quickly and eagerly applied.
Being the superstitious young woman that she is, Ashley thought it best to keep her application and resulting interview a secret from her friends and family, for fear that she might jinx the outcome, and to help keep a positive acceptance a surprise.
Ashley hires a local ridesharing company to drive her several miles to the outskirts of her college town to the location of Forest Grove, and drop her off at the front gate.
As Ashley stands in front of the front stairs that lead to the entrance of Forest Grove, she can’t help but be underwhelmed by the age, aesthetics and lack of upkeep of the large building that looms in front of her.
