When I woke up, I was happy I was still in the dumpster and no longer being thrown through the air, chased or stomped on. Once inside I had laid down and listened, but between the blood loss, the testosterone let down and no regular sleep for a while; I had fallen asleep. Not hearing any noise outside of the dumpster, I checked my watch; I had been asleep for 30 minutes. On the stupid scale that ranked right up there with offering dog biscuits to a werewolf on a rampage.
"Probably safe now," I thought, and checked my wounds. I had some serious road rash from being tossed around before I could get away. The bleeding had stopped, for the moment, and my arms looked like a bizarre barber pole. I was going to need some super glue and liquid skin to close up the wounds once I got out of here. I keep the "Whale Fin Reattachment" size superglue and liquid skin bottles in my med kit. Stings like hell, but boy, does it work.
