I woke up in a gray room. White noise surrounded me, a susurration that diminished when I put my hands over my ears, so it wasn't in my head, it was background noise. Gray light entered through a square window that was a lighter, brighter gray than the stone the room was carved from.
The volume of the sound jumped to a gentle roar as a door beside the window slid open for half a second, letting in a blast of cold, wet air, and a teenaged girl. Her brown hair was pulled back in a ponytail and she was clad in a dark green jumpsuit that showed off her thin figure and small, but fully formed breasts.
