I can feel my body wanting to shut down, begging to just go to sleep and have the numbness take over. To take me away from all this madness that has become my life.


I think I hear someone calling my name. It’s too distant for me to make out clearly.

Shit, my body feels like it’s gone up in flames.

“Bailey! Open your eyes, baby.”

Gavin? He came back? I didn’t think he would, not after the way we left things. Open my eyes? My eyes are open; it’s just dark. Panic washes over me as I remember what happened. Forget me, find Logan. Please let Logan still be hiding.


Why does he sound like he’s stuck in a damn tunnel? Shit, my entire body feels to be on the verge of exploding.

“Bailey, you just stay with me, okay! Don’t you dare close your eyes on me. Stay with me!”

Everything he says seems so damn muffled, and I don’t know why he keeps asking me to keep my eyes open; they are, he just has to turn on the damn lights.

“Lo---Logan,” I think I manage to get out, but to my ears, I can’t make anything out clearly, and wow, does my throat feel like it’s been through a shredder.

“I have him. He’s safe. Just stay awake. Please!”

Again, everything he’s saying sounds so damn muffled, but I don’t even care, because he just made everything better by telling me Logan is safe.

I hope my mind isn’t messing with me because the next thing I feel is that inferno inside of me taking over my body. The numbness finally engulfs me, and everything goes completely dark and silent.
