"Wake up," I heard.
The voice sounded masculine and unfamiliar. Fingers tapped my cheek. I opened my eyes and saw a big dark blur. What the hell? I inhaled and picked up the scent of blood, burned flesh, and rot. Lots of rot. My stomach twisted in a tight knot.
"Wake up," the man said again. A cool hand touched my chin and tilted my head from side to side.
I opened my eyes. A strange man with his hair hanging in front of his face hovered above me. I swatted at his arm. "Stop it."
He drew his hand back and pierced me with his dark eyes. "Are you awake now?"
I rubbed my fingers over my eyes. Was I dreaming? The man was cute, heart-thumping cute, like a model with great bone structure. His hair came past his chin, but not by much. All he needed was a tan and he would've been perfect for the cover of any magazine.
"Do you understand me?" he asked with a hint of irritation in his tone.
"Yeah, I hear you loud and clear," I replied, equally annoyed. "Where am I?"
The patter of footsteps alerted me to another presence.
"Boss," a man called out.
The attractive stranger stood and turned. "Over here."
