I woke up.

My arm hurt like hell, and I didn't know why.

That was the first thing I noticed. The second was the smell. I could smell... incense? Sandalwood, I recognized the sandalwood, but whatever it was mixed with was hard to define. Earthy scents. Florals. Natural perfumes.

It made the air heavy. Made me want to close my eyes again and sleep for a hundred years. I could see the white spirals drifting through the air is a fog.

My eyelids slipped down and I slept.

The floor was hard.
