I look over my immobile body to see Clint fitfully sleeping, dreaming, mumbling, kicking out. Grandma and Cole staring at me in frightened silence, as if trying to stop the future, trying to bring back yesterday's yesterday. And my head hurts so bad, its pain is tearing me away to drown in its red waters.
Inside my head I'm yelling: Hey, I'm here! Wake up, Clint!
Hey I'm here! Hey, Clint!
I'm here!
But I'm not here, am I? My mouth won't move. My eyelids won't open.
Clint!
Summon up one huge effort. One last scream of life against drowning!
