“The sound of Sean’s departing footsteps filtered through, dull thumps faded in and out, just as if Jade’s head was still being held underwater. His consciousness flowed and slopped around the inside of his skull, his brain no better than mush sloshing against the back of his eyes.
 
Jade had no idea how much time had passed when he open his eyes and tried to sit up. He spat out a mouthful of blood that’d pooled from both injury and biting the inside of his cheek to stop himself from screaming.
 
He had promised himself a good long scream at the end of it all, as if somehow that might cleanse his system of the pain. But the time for screaming had passed. He was numb from the case of his skin to the pits of his bones.”
