I fainted once in a CPR class [oh, the irony], and though it was apparently only fifteen or twenty seconds, it felt like much longer. My awareness was different somehow. It felt like sleeping, only not. When I woke up I thought I was dreaming [that the class was the dream, not the experience], and I actually tried to roll over in 'bed'.
"A memory is something that has to be consciously recalled, right? But it's different from a memory locked deep within your heart. Words aren't the only way to tell someone how you feel...As long as I'm with you, as long as you're by my side, I won't give up even if I'm scared." Tifa Lockheart, Final Fantasy VII
