Regaining consciousness for the first time isn't the slow, fuzzy-headed sink back through the veil of sleep that most are used to, but more like being woken up in the middle of the night by a loud noise, when all of your consciousness snaps back to you like an elastic band all at once. When that first fragmented sliver of awareness sounds, deep in the primitive areas of his brain, everything comes screaming back all at once, but it doesn't make much sense. Consciousness is full of blaring white lights and noise, and pain. Most of all pain, not localized, just wave after burning, scarlet wave of pain and white noise and cold.
