Parts of the book "Questions and Answers"
I blink and open my eyes. Everything is pure white and so bright that it seems like noise and has a unique sound. My head is confused and my side hurts. It's too bright everywhere and I can't think.
“Todd?” I say. My voice is hoarse, full of cotton and spit, I push as hard as I can and release my voice in a space whose bright lights blind my eyes.
I don't recognize the voice, it's a woman's voice... a woman. "Who are you?" I ask. And I try to sit, I reach out my hands to find out what's going on around me, I feel the coolness of the air and the softness of... a bed? I am filled with fear.
