EXCERPT

I woke up to total darkness. I didn’t
know if I was dead or alive until I tried to blink, but the pain was worse if I
tried to breathe or move, so I figured I must be alive and in hell. Turns out I
was right.
I wanted to fight the suffocating fear
that came over me. I tried to calm my panic and assess the circumstances.
I was definitely lying in a bed. I felt
buried alive. Is there a blanket over my
face?
Am I paralyzed? Why can’t I
move? Why can’t I see or hear anything except incessant beeping?
Hot waves of pain crashed over me,
reverberating through every fiber of my body. All the limbs must have been
there; I felt pain fucking everywhere. Surely if I had lost some parts, they
wouldn’t be hurting so much. Able to move one hand, I used it to explore. Painfully
reaching up to feel my face covered with bandages, I discovered wires sticking
out from it. My lips were rough and hard; they didn’t feel like lips. I could
put the tip of my pinky in my partially open mouth, but then wires and braces
stopped it from further exploration. Oh
shit, this is going to totally suck
.
I moved my hand downward to the bandages
covering my chest and then over my stomach to my dick—limper than I ever
remembered it being, but at least all in one piece. My entire right side was
heavily bandaged, radiating with agonizing pain.
What
happened to me? What the fuck happened to me, and what’s coming next?
I started to panic again, which caused
the telemetry heart monitor to beep so loudly I didn’t hear the nurse come in.
“You’ll be all right.” The nurse’s
hands were firm, yet gentle, as she soothed my arm tied to the bedside. “Try to
relax. I’m giving you something in your IV to help you calm down.”
I escaped the only way I could, back
into oblivion.
