“Oh dear, you’re awake,” a voice startled Phoebe and she tilted her head to see a man with an alligator aspect enter the cabin.
“I’m alive,” she said.
The man was preoccupied with the pockets of his white coat, rooting around for an unknown item.
“Are you a doctor?” Phoebe coughed up the remaining bile.
“My name is Alexis. Bluebell. I mean, that’s my last name and people tend to call me by it- here,” he handed her a washcloth, “I’m the one who bandaged you. The woman who found you called me down, well, up here.”
Phoebe froze; “The witch?”
“Yes, and her canine friend. We work together.”
“So I really did die...” Phoebe’s tired gaze shifted to the taupe wall opposite of her, shadows and colors and the edge of the doorway blurring together as she lost focus, snapped back apart by a blink.
Bluebell gave her an inquisitive look. “You weren’t aware?”
