Her pupils begin to constrict to the bright lights above her and proceeds to take a deep breath, cool air rushing inside her mouth having a relaxing effect on her before expelling a warm sigh. The hair on the back of her neck raising ever so slightly with a cold jetter slowly going up her spine slowly spreading throughout her upper-body. Her eyelids only partially opened feeling fatigued, her senses slowly begin to return to her hearing a faint beep to the side of her. As her consciousness is slowly returning to her, her body still feels groggy with a slight pain radiating through her shoulders and lower back. Wishing to massage the pain from her shoulder she feels a cold hard object ...view middle of the document...

Tears sliding down to her ears and wanting off to rub them off the constraints mock her for she had forgotten they keep her in place.
She feels it in her chest, her heartbeating faster a little bit harder maybe as if its trying to escape from the rib cage thats confinding it or is this what she simply is feeling like. The monitors beeping increasing in frequency again starts to feed her frustrations of her confinement. Trying to stay level-headed her thoughts run a muck trying to remember how she even ended up here. With only one thing resurfacing from the back of her subconscious; her heart pounding frantically feeling an intense uncertainty as people ran all over the place, the dismay kept her still as if it controlled her like she was its puppet. With her face exuding her angst she looked over seeing a red light hitting her, falling to the ground as everything slowly began to fade into obscurity.
With that short scene playing through her head and the heart monitors beeping was becoming an annoyance like a mosquito on a summers day, only causing her to become more irritated. Finally coming full circle she becomes defiant of basic logic trying to break away from her constraints as she squirmed desperately trying to escape. The heart monitor laughed at her as she tried to break free only feeding her growing animosity towards it. Now adrenaline flowing throughout her body; glucose and fatty acids rising giving the already contracting muscles the energy they need, the insolent beeping continuing to mock her. The metal beginning to scream only adding to her hatred towards the heart monitors continuous beeping, all this happening in a matter of seconds blinded by her rage she almost didn't notice that her arms were free from the metal confinding her.
Finally able to sit up, she looked at her arms in disbelief; it would be as if everything around became silent with the whole world quietly focusing on her alone. With a small but warm smile she moves up slightly with her arms wrapping around her body and hands finally comforting her shoulders. This small victory slightly easing her agitation gives herself a pinch on her shoulder feeling the insignificant pain, confirming that this was not some dream that she wished it to be.
This bit of comfort she felt the joy of being free caused the beeping to dissipate for only a moment but as if it had a vendetta against her, resumed its childish mocking. The small warm smile she had began to alter into an expressionless face. With her head looking down , her straight brown hair covering her expressionless face made her seem lifeless. With a lackluster stare she notices that she has black form fitting suit covering her body; her index finger one the hexagon design she started to mimic the shape with her finger sliding it around as if she was a small child trying to amuse herself.
Laying her arms on the constraints keeping her ankles in place grabs them and slowly constricting the metal with crevices...
