The beginning

You wake up in a strange place. Bleary eyed, you try to blink the crust from the corners of your eyes. What happened? You feel dizzy and sick. There's intense heat all around you. Cold sweat has already drenched you from head to toe. Nothing's making much sense, but you decide to sit up. You rub your eyes and suddenly, like a a gust of strong wind, your memories flood back in you head. The breath is knocked out of you as you remember last night.

The gang! The kidnapping! Suddenly it clicks.

"I'm dead?" You say out loud in a meek voice.

"Of course you are." Says a sly voice located in front of you.
