Part 3

When he awoke, the night was releasing its suffocating grip on the land, revealing the harsh sun. To believe that it had only been one night was difficult, and he feared for how long he would be able to bear this suffering. He laid awake for what seemed like days on his cold, hard bed, and after that, he got up slowly, with a light head. When the room had ceased its violent and sickening spinning, jack noticed a small tray on the ground. He approached the silver platter, he noticed that it had a piece of bread and a bowl of soup sitting atop it. It was only now that jack realised how hungry he was.
