I knew the numbness would fade, and then would come the pain. The kind of unspeakable, all-consuming pain that comes when a piece of you dies. I opened my eyes and allowed them to slowly focus.

I sat frozen for what seemed like a lifetime…and when my mind finally pulled itself out of the nothingness I realized that I was smiling.
