Chapter 2- Recovery

1/2 month later...

My vision was a hazy, an intense, bright blue that stung my eyes, as though I were staring straight on at the sun. Were it not for the dense sensation of whatever surface I was on, I'd have believed this to be the great beyond; Thank the Great Beings this wasn't so; now I could get up and fix this mess of a situation- if my limbs would help to prop me up that is. No matter how hard I force them to bend, with all the power, all the clenching possible, I just couldn't. Finally I decided to collapse, a slight vibration surging through my limbs as I lie, boiling with frustration. What was the big deal? Had the Order of Mata Nui caught me? Was I imprisoned, waiting to be subjected to interrogation then executed? The questions could only build as I compress my head into whatever I was resting upon, the muffled sounds of two people conversing ringing in my head.

As if they weren't enough the screeches start to become the words a deep and staticky voice, loudly demanding one thing, "Get u..u..up! Ge...ge...get up!" Was my minds playing tricks on me, or was the Order finding certain ways to interrogate me in my half conscious state? I'd believe both, for now visions of a dark blue Hau alit with flames started to appear, growing brighter and brighter until I could swear I was blinded by such intense light; engulfing me with such aggressive force, such burning hatred and anger it seemed to have.
