A/N I apologize for all the spelling errors that are sure to have been in this chapter and my last. I really do know how to spell but I have been typing the chapters out on my phone while I'm at lunch. Auto correct has engaged me in a very instance battle over what word I want and what word it thinks I want. I do intend to edit the story but right now I just want to focus on finishing it so please bear with me.

Vance moaned as he tried to remove ache in his neck. He must've slept wrong, he thought. He could feel the sun shining on himself. He took a deep breathe and paused. Something didn't feel quite right.. his chest felt heavy. Vance opened his eyes and then quickly shut them against the bright morning sun. He was outside!
