Go To

My heart was beating loudly...I'm breathing differently...Constantly closing my eyes... My vision is blurry and all I can see is Gomez along with a few doctors running down the hospital hall with there hands on the bed... I look down at my very swollen stomach there was blood on my dress... I put my hand on my head pulled it away looked and there was blood there too.. Unconscious I didn't know what was going on... Did I almost die?...maybe I did maybe I didn't..All I now is That was the day I was close to death.
The opening lines.
