Melissa now has a decision to make.
1) A computer chip surgically implanted in her brain, which beams parental messages that her heart is still beating and she is not being held against her will.
2) An electrical shock device that reminds her to call home.
3) A tether.
4) A curfew. Plain and simple. My sincere and deepest apologies to all the households we disturbed, she owes you one.
