Carmen eventually came to and was shocked to find that the piercing sound that had caused her so much pain was no longer present. However, her head was pounding with a painful intensity, and she couldn’t help but wonder how much time had passed while she was unconscious. She tried to stand up, but her body felt weak and unresponsive, leaving her unable to get to her feet.

Carmen wasted no time in crawling back towards safety, but as she did, the piercing sound returned once more, causing her to cry out in agony. It was a nightmare for her to endure such pain again. Eventually, Carmen realized that the sun had started to set, indicating that several hours had passed since she began her journey that morning.
