Extra info for Altered America
Sitting up was a mistake; my head did not fall off but a stabbing pain at the base of my neck added itself to the throbbing inside my skull. I was wearing black dress trousers and apparently nothing else and I was in a strange room that was rolling slowly. Graham's trousers. Graham's room.

Dried sweat all over me except where I was clammy.
