The room spun slightly as I set my foot on the floor. The dull pain in my leg shot up in to my head like a bullet and made me see stars. I reached over to the bed stand and found a familiar friend. I took the cap off of the top of the bottle and flung it across my dirty apartment and out of a window that had been carelessly left open. I tilted the bottle of rum back and placed it back on the nightstand, dry. The burning sensation pushed the pain back down. The alarm clock that sat next to the bed had long since blown its speakers but it still told time. Once again I had woken up at 6:00 with absolutely no reason. I growled menacingly at the clock as if it could sense my displeasure.
