    Rohgen heard nothing but distorted voices. He shook his head to rid
himself of the after effects of the drugs. The effects did not shake lose
nor did his appearent bed-head hair. He tilted his head in his attempt to
focus on the green glowing blur in the corner. The waving glow brought on
the pain in his head. With a hand on his head and a groan escaping his lips
he sat up. "What hit me? I remember a sharp pointy dart hit my neck but what
gives with my head?" whined Rohgen. Rohgen shook his head again and gave a
few strong blinks of his blurry eyes.
