My name is Catherine, Im 25 years old and Im the daughter my deceased father, Robert a great mathematician. Some may say that Im smart like he was but I really don’t care.

Claire has taken the nerve to think that I’m a crazed, depressed lunatic and that I should be looked after. She wants to put me in a mental institution. IM NOT CRAZY! And I don’t need anyone’s help, especially hers. However, with dad gone, I don’t really know what to do with my life anymore. I don’t really care much about it.
