A cool breeze blew gently across his cheeks.  Bright orange lined the inside of his eyelids telling him it was daylight, but he was unable to open them.  He groaned at the pain inside his head.  ‘What happened?  Where am I?’  He strained to remember.  The fuzziness rendered him unable to focus.  Strong footsteps approached; someone with a purpose.  His cracked lips opened to enquire, but all that came out was an incoherent croak.

“How are you James?”  His body stiffened at the woman’s voice.  His memory instantly cleared.  Unable to move, he trembled as the needle pierced his skin.

    A chilling tale, that made me think of Stephen King’s book, Misery. How horrifying to be under the medical control of someone who does not have your best interests at hear.
