First Paragraph: Now

Alex and I are lying together on a blanket in the backyard of 37 Brooks. The trees look larger and darker than usual. The leaves are almost black, knitted so tightly together they blot out the sky.

First Paragraph: Then

In the beginning, there is fire.

Fire in my legs and lungs; fire stearing through every nerve and cell in my body. That's how I am born again, in pain; I emerge from the suffocating heat and the darkness. I force my way through a black, wet space of strange noices and smells.
