All Miguel can hear is his own heavy breathing.

Inhale…

Exhale…

Inhale……

He stands there…everything is blurred, can't make anything out.

But what's this?

A figure, slowly coming towards him..

Who?

Exhale….

Inhale…

He holds his breath.

"Maritza?.." The word was pulled from his throat.

Closer now…yes, he can start to make out the shape.

It has to be her..

Falling out of his standing position he starts moving towards her.

Yes, he can make out that pretty haircut of hers, that feminine body…

"Maritza! I can't believe it…"

Exhale…

Blink. Blinkblink..

She's gone…her image replaced by that of that blonde bastard, Alonzo Torquemada, standing there with his hand against the top bunk, that hazy eye watching him.

"Time to wake up, sunshine…"

Sigh…
