Two things before you head off to the story:
1 . @braveheart29, I apologize for it being so cruel.
2 . I have never before written a story that is 100 % monolog. And it's pretty damn hard.

”Where am I? Why can’t I open my eyes? Why can’t I move? What’s going on?
I can’t feel anything. I don’t think it worked. I’ll try again.
Hey, what’s that? I hear something. I can’t quite make it out but I hear it! Oh come on! Why can’t I move?
Footsteps? Am I hearing this right?
Hey! I’m here! Help me!
Oh. They stopped. I can’t even tell how far away they were. Sure sounded distant.
Wait. What’s that? Is that metal clashing? Sounds as if someone was shaking a toolbox of some sort.
Over here! Heey!
What's the last thing I remember? Eating dinner? What?
This is getting really scary. Can this please stop? Am I dreaming? Is my body still asleep but my mind woke up? Like sleep paralysis or something. Shit, I read somewhere you see demons when that happens. And you can’t move and they get to you and they do whatever the hell they want to you and - Help! Over here! Please someone! Save me, please!
Alright. Calm down. No demons yet, so there probably won’t even be any. Just breathe slowly and relax.
What? I can’t feel myself breathing. I swear, I can’t feel it. What the fuck? What’s going on?
Alright, calm down. Really.
What’s that? I can hear people talking. I can definitely hear people talking. What’s that language? Something Slavic? Russian, maybe? Who am I kidding, all of them sound Russian to me.
What are they talking about? All I’m getting is comrade. That tells me straight up nothing.
Heey! Over here! Help me!
Maybe if I try to just move my fingers a little. Just my pinky. Maybe I can do that. Start small, just like the saying goes, right?
Nope. Can’t do it.
Great. Now what? Wait until I wake up or something? No, no, no, there has to be something I can do about this.
Shit. What’s that sound? I must’ve zoned out and missed something. What’s going on? What’s happening?
Am I being moved somewhere? I can definitely hear two people walking.
Water? Why did I just hear a splash? Did someone just dump a massive rock inside a lake or something?
Hey! Why are you walking away from me? Help me for fuck’s sake! I’m here!
Am I feeling cold? I’m definitely feeling cold. Why am I feeling cold all of a sudden?
I see! Finally! I made it! Oh man, I opened my eyes.
Well this is fucking great. It’s all blurry as fuck. Here I am celebrating I opened my eyes and still I can’t see shit.
Alright, stop complaining all the time. Let’s try to focus on something, how about that, hm?
Why is there no light in here?
What’s that? Call an ambulance. Why the fuck is there a sign in front of me?
Wait. Am I where I think I am?
Oh fuck no! Not the fucking bathtub. Oh god no, come on! It cannot be. Shit. No. Please be dreaming, please be dreaming.
Is there a cellphone somewhere? God, may there be a cellphone somewhere, please!
There! Oh, and it’s already dialed in! Come on, come on, come on, just extend the fucking arm!
Oh god, please. Please just let me fucking move!
For whoever didn’t understand the story: it’s about a man who got his organs stolen. It’s common practice for the victim to be left in a bathtub filled with water and ice with a phone nearby to call for help when they wake up.
