I wake with a memory

When I awoke again I was still on a couch in the downstairs sitting room, though a blanket had at some time been layed over me. Nearby Anna sat asleep in a chair. Since there were no windows to the room I had no way of knowing what time of day it was but a pang in my stomach told me I was completely famished. At least the headache had subsided somewhat.

Looking around the room hesitantly, I allowed my eyes to re-adjust. Everything felt slower than usual and for a moment I wasn't particularly fond of the idea of getting up but the thought quickly passed. On a nearby table stood a small cup of what I could only assume was the water I had been given earlier. I tried to sit up but a sharp pain in my side forced me back down with a moan. The idea of bed rest didn't bode well with me. There was work to be done.

My movement was enough to awaken Anna though, as I strained once more to reach the cup. My shoulder and abdomen were screaming at me to stop twisting my body in such a way but I refused to listen to it. I had narrowly escaped a werewolf. I wasn't about to let a cup of water get the best of me.
