My bed is sickly soft. <br> Sickly. Sickly I know, because that's what it smells of. <br> Sick. Puke, vomit, whatever. And I smell equally disgusting. Not of B.O., surprisingly, but of- you know it!- sick. The sunset is real pretty this morning. Some odd navy blues and reds that just don't happen in Asia. <br> But they do happen in Florence, Italy. Which explains the bowl of horrible looking, oily gelato sitting on my nightstand. <br> Did I say my nightstand? I meant the nightstand. Let's get back to the subject of me, in Florence and not dead. I climb out of bed. Evaluate the room- oh hey! There's a perfect view of Italy. Oh hey! Theres an antique vanity.- and then stand in front of a smudged mirror, that looks like it had better days. <br><br> And, Oh hey! I'm actually me. I'm Winter Greene and so undead. So.. alive. If I was dozy before, dozy no more. I guess before I asummed I was dead- that I was just living my last moments in my cherished birthplace. <br> Nah. God decided to spare me. Or, by better chance, Hadley Jones did. <br> "Hadley Jones." I say aloud, to hear myself, hear her same. It rolls off my tongue in a settling sort of way. <br> "Yes?" <br> And I pass out. Literally.
