A man wakes in a hospital, and must face his demons as he slowly stumbles into the plot.

I must have woken up five times last night in cold sweats from these vivid, and lucid dreams. The first one had my heart racing a mile a minute, and each one after full of suspense, and a prelude to the previous.

After numerous hours in the local emergency room I was released. In pain, and pumped with drugs I limp to the door. I keep trying to recollect the events that brought me here to this hospital, and this state of paranoia growing inside of me that is filling like a baloon. The reason is in the back of my mind, but I just can't get my fingers around it. My mind draws a blank as white as the snow that is falling from the midnight sky onto my face. Wait a minute "where's my car". "Did I even drive here? Damn I can't remember anything.""What in the fuck is going on" I think to myself.

I aimlessly wander the rows of the hundreds of snow covered cars searching for my own if it was even there. My breaths become more rampant as i take in the frostbitten air, and blow aout the fog of my bewilderment, and panic.I feel my chest tighten, and my vision goes completley white until it fades to black into com;lete darkness.

"Michael... C'mon baby I'm getting ready to leave. Please wake up!"

I feel her lips begin to caress mine in attempts towake me up for a final goodbye forthe week. I arise from my slumber long enough to kiss her, and tell her how much I love her.

"Please be safe baby, and call me as soon as you get there."

She said, "I love you too, and I will always be there."

"Michael.. Can you hear me?" "MICHAEL I'M HERE"

''WAKE UP" "I"m here"

A tear rolled down her cheek, and froze upon my face

the feelings long since forgotten or is it my dismay

It's somewhat confusing to begin with, but you can play that off as his being bewildered by the situation. But you should definitely continue, and take the story further
