I feel... warm.
I blink and see a white tiled ceiling above me.
...There's something wrong...
I blink again, trying to figure out what's wrong when I realize, I see a white tiled ceiling before me.
I see a white tiled ceiling before me.
I revel in the feeling of euphoria as I mentally recall all the colors I see around the room.
Red! Blue! Green! Violet!
I grin, when a fog floods my vision. My body stiffens in surprise as green and white tendrils of smoke swirl around the room.
"Do you like my gift, child...?" Hissing, strangely familiar hissing.
I give no reply.
"Hmmm..." the hissing voice says, "That'sss too bad... Ssseams like you sstill need motivatttion..."
My surreal vision goes black.
Dark, numbing, somehow familiar pain engulfs me.
I scream. No, please, no.

There are three things you don't want to wake up to. One, water on your head, two, someone you don't know naked beside you and three, screaming.
But this time, I guess I'll make an exception.
The scream was heart-stopping... and ear-drum-bursting if it's beside your ear. Which it was with me.
I turn around to see Alisa, horror in her eyes. I'm half-relieved half-alert.
"Alisa?" I ask, anxious, "What's up?"
She stares at me for a second, fear and turmoil in her black void-like eyes when she blinks and shakes her head.
"N-n-nothing..." she says, voice raspy and coarse, "What happened?"
"You've been... asleep... for... for a month." I say.
Her eyes grow wide, "A-a month?" she croaks.
I nod my head, then I remember she can't see so I say "Yeah."
For a second, everything is quiet until I break the silence, "Er... do you remember anything..."
Her face distorts as she tries to recall whatever she was going through when suddenly, she goes rigid.
She doubles over like she'd been punched in the gut and she grips her head in her hands.
"No... no... help... help...! Nico...!" She croaks out every word in agony. "Nico...!"

"Give in... child..." the hissing voice says, "Be my ssslave..."
"No... no..!" I scream, or try to, "Leave me alone... Help!"
"Be my ssssoulkeeper..." he whispers, "Be my body..."
"No...!" I choke on the word.
"You... You are damaged..." he whispers, the last word echoing, "You want to be whole..."
"Leave... me..." I say faintly, my determination fading.
"You are like mee..." he says, "I will make you whole... In turn... make me whole..."
"... alone..." I whisper as I feel my resolve fade.
Someone, help me?
