Cold steel stuck to his sweat-damp body. The clinical clean stink of a hospital wing stung his nose around the thin plastic tubing of a nasal cannula. Squinting into the bright overhead lights, the roused young man blinked away the haze of a sedated slumber, forcing his shaken mind into the present.โฃ

๏ผฐ๏ฝ๏ฝ‰๏ฝŽ . With the gradual clearing of unconscious fog, came the ๐’ธ๐“‡๐“Š๐“ˆ๐’ฝ๐’พ๐“ƒ๐‘” agony radiating throughout his body. All at once, every fibre inside him blazed, each vessel pumping battery acid through swelling, tearing muscle. A stuttering cry started low in his throat, rolling through a dry mouth and into the still air around him.โฃ

Clenched feet made sudden contact with the linoleum floor, calves and shins following in a spaghetti spiral on top of them. As the lower portion of his stomach edged ever closer to the gruesome resting place of his limbs, the desperate cries had all but choked away. Instead, caught in silent, racking sobs as his ruptured body warped and tore, Reed whispered breathless pleas for his vacant best friend.โฃ
