"who are you?" inquired rose with a familiar fear in her eyes.

"my name is daniel." he calmly stated.

"daniel, can you explain to me, where i am?" she hesitated.

"you'll soon learn." remarked daniel in confidence. "come with me, you've been hurt."

"hurt? i'm not, i swear it."

"i'll show you." said daniel as he stretched out his hand for hers.

"how can i trust you?" she glared.

"you are suffering from a wound that could result in an infection. clearly you don't remember the explosion. you're not in a state of mind, you are among the stars, far from earth."

rose moved her hand across her chest as her jaw dropped in disbelief.

"i-i don't believe you." she explained as her head grew faint and her skin crawled. her strength grew weak as her knees began to tremble when her fingertips revealed the blood slipping through her chest.

daniel embraced rose as she fell, carrying her away from the shadows.
