Slow Ascent

By: Vanessa Sgroi

It comes on slow, the return to consciousness. I don't really relish the ascent mostly because it's accompanied by the awakening of other pain throughout my body.

So the freight train of pain registers first, then the noise—one noise really—the sound of my name being called in a tone thick with worry. I try to answer, but my mouth stubbornly refuses to follow my brain's orders.

I change tactics instead, focusing all of my energy on opening my eyes. That's a slow go too but eventually successful.

Finally, I find my voice, though it's low and raspy. "Sam."
