It's hard to know what's real anymore. I wake up and I'm not sure which of my dreams have come true and which of my nightmares are only in my head.
My stomach cramps constantly and my hair is falling out.

Summary: Lyra is caught in a trap.
At first, she couldn't open her eyes. There was a thick gunk gluing her eyelashes together. Lyra forced her lids open, ignoring the tug as it pulled out her lashes. It was dark. So, so dark.
She was –
She was wrapped in some kind of mucus. A trap?
She tested its strength. As she moved, the mucus squeezed more tightly around her, clamping down on her ribs.
Definitely a trap. Possibly of some kind of enormous spider.
She shuddered, feeling the warm flex of solidifying mucus against her skin. There was a groaning hum, and she watched with horror as a set of yellow fangs pierced the film near her left eyeball. The fangs swayed, as if testing the air, and then jabbed towards her, sinking into the skin of her cheek.
Lyra cried out, expecting pain, but instead her cheek went numb, and she found she couldn't move, couldn't even blink.
The fangs pulled away, and prepared to strike once more.
As she drifted into unconsciousness, she heard a voice shouting her name.
