“Carefully, Ben turned himself over and gazed steadily at the hospital ceiling. He touched his bandaged head with his left arm and a wryly smile spread over his face. He found a dented spot on the ceiling and let his eyes rest there in an attempt to concentrate.
The smile on his face soon disappeared as he threw his mind back to the event twelve hours ago that brought him to this hospital ward. He winced and closed his eyes tightly as he saw in his mind’s eye the downward journey of the pestle that broke his head and left him unconscious.”
