After a long night of drinking and partying, Naya wakes up in her friend's apartment with a terrible hangover. But the thing is, she's not in her friend's apartment and this hangover is the least of her worries. 

There is a voice giving her commands and she has no choice but to obey.


I was still looking around for the source of the voice. My hangover was screaming at me to sit down, but I was up, frantically looking for a way out of the glass bubble in which I was trapped.

With my small fists, I banged against the red glass. My pounding made quite a ruckus, causing the sound to reverberate and further aggravate my headache.

"Careful with my gold cuffs," the voice warned.

I paused only long enough to look down at my wrists. They were donned with some kind of heavy jewelry. I stared harder. They were golden clamps that nearly reached my elbows. 

I made an effort to remove them, but the disembodied voice just chuckled, "You aren't ever going to get those off, Naya. They're enchanted to keep djinn like you under control."

This was a good fix - gives the atmosphere without losing the forward momentum.

This is from a Djinn's perspective. Very cool. How did you learn about Djinn?

I felt like her realization of her surroundings might have come a bit too quick here, you could have drawn it out just a little bit more.

Very captivating, great pacing. Reminds me of a genie in a bottle...and then that song gets in my head :)

Though things didn't work out so well, I really appreciate the mention of Naya having a safety net in the form of Portia and her cats(all of whom I look forward to meeting)when going out and drinking heavily.

Wow, this is an excellent start! Your writing is so easy to read. I would only recommend that you hint more about the bottle that she's in before stating 'glass bubble'.  That way you can incorporate some of her confusion, and the reader can have a better time guessing what she woke up in :)
