Darkness enveloped her like a soothing cover, her thoughts as loose and free as the wind, in this peaceful state nothing mattered anymore. Vague memories floated around in Ariana's mind but she couldn't get a firm grasp on them, they glided away from her whenever she tried and it was so hard to resist the comforting darkness. Something forced her to try and clear her mind, to force her memories back to her, gradually they got sharper as they came into focus. Gradually regaining the meaning they once had, the first time she fell of a horse, her first trip to the ocean, her first crush. With that the rest came crashing back at her like a wave. Suddenly Ariana snapped her eyes open, it didn't matter much as it was almost as dark as it were behind her eyelids. Confused she tried to move but her limbs were like lead, she lay slumped on her side, left arm bent awkwardly beneath her. Her head throbbed painfully, forcing her to seize her attempts to move as even the smallest shift increased the pain. Staying as she was Ariana racked her brain to remember what had happened. She had gone to a late yoga class that much she knew but what had happened after that. From what she could gather she was still dressed in her usual jeans and sneakers, her navy blue, long sleeved shirt was twisted around her waist uncomfortably, had she just tripped or been hit by a car? Although she didn't feel any other pain except her head ache and the collar of her short jacket rubbed roughly against a sore spot on the side of her neck. Slowly lifting her right hand Ariana awkwardly drew her fingers across her neck, flinching as she came across a wound, her fingers came away sticky with blood. Fear settled in her stomach as the tendrils of darkness rose from her mind, what kind of accident could she have gotten into to injure just her neck like this? A chilly breeze reached her and Ariana suddenly remembered walking down an empty street, shivering in the cold, her still damp hair not making it any easier walking home in the chilly autumn nigh. When she actually had needed a cab no one could be seen. Frowning she gasped in pain as she twisted around to free her cramped arm, vaguely recalling finally being able to hail a cab, too tired to pay the driver any attention, just giving her address before slumping down into the seat. After that her mind was blank, no matter how she tried she could not figure ot what had happened after getting into the cab. Unable to lie still Ariana did her best to ignore her head ache, as she fought to sit up it attacked with vicious throbs and Ariana had to shut her green eyes and concentrate before trying to pierce the darkness around her.
