SynopsisJames has had a near death expreience which has somehow given him the ability to see things that weren't there before.
He encounters two unlikely helpers and a lot of trouble and now he's trying to piece himself back together but his new abilities make him a target to a host things that weren't there before.
ExcerptEverything hurt. His head hurt, his eyes hurt and both his head and eyes were spinning. This wasn't any fun at all. If there were many ways to regain consciousness this one is not a favorite of his. Sometimes a hangover could be cured with a coffee, cigarette, fry up, tea, another cigarette, and then sleeping it off. If only it were so easy, this was not a hangover and may be a tad more difficult. Awake for mere seconds and already he was annoyed. Then something flashed in his mind, and he froze. 'Am I safe?'
His eyes darted around the room, searching for people for answers and then objects for clues. He was in a bed, he was surrounded by a curtain, it was cold, and the smell was bad. He was in paper clothes and thin sheets and had tubes running into him. 'Oh crap!' He could hear beeps, they were beeps coming from beyond the curtain but one very high beep started beside him. His hearing had started to sharpen, he could here voices and then footsteps. James tried to move but he was still linked to tubes, this was not a great situation and the sooner he is out of here the better. He made a start on getting the tubes out of him but the darkness started to set again, his hearing started to dull and his strength was fast dissipating . James started to panic and tried harder to pull at the tubes when the curtain parted revealing three people. 'Don't worry, you're in a hospital. I'm Mila, a nurse and I'm here to look after you' said the lady who rushed to his side with concern written on her face. However, there were two men casually standing at the foot of his bed just watching him. 'And who are you?' James said with the last of his energy and then everything went black.
'Oh, now that's interesting' said one of the men standing at the end of the bed. He'd seen many interesting moments in his life time, all of them wondrous and awesome in the true meaning of the word. He'd realised that the word awesome had lost its original context and is now used to describe a good cup of tea but he'd also realised in his years that there are some things that you can't change. However, one of the lessons he and others have learnt is that some of the biggest and most awesome changes in the world start from the smallest most 'interesting' details. Just like Chaos theory, how a butterfly can flap its wings and cause a hurricane in a country halfway across the world. Not many people can detect which actual Butterfly and which butterfly stroke was the actual golden stroke that would cause the hurricane, but for those who could tell, they also knew that somewhere halfway across the world someone people were going to have a hard monsoon season.
