She tried desperately to move and found that her legs twitched and saw her sheet move slightly. Her fingers curled and she strained to sit up, to no avail. In her frustration, she screamed. Sound came out, barely audible but nevertheless sound! Sharline found new strength in this and so she tried once more.
