Her toes lost feeling, and she woke up, blinking.  Where was I? The thought flew to her mind.  Her jeans were cuffed and cold.

There were boots nearby. She pulled them on.  They were too big.  Pins and needles shot through her legs as she tried to stand.  Her knees caved.  The warmth of the granite seeped into her, wrapping her in imagined comfort.  She cradled herself, rocking back and forth, watching the sun mingle with green.

Where was I? she whispered.  She stood and walked into the forest.
