Samantha loved doing crossword puzzles every morning with her cup of coffee. She would sit at the kitchen table and try to finish the day’s puzzle before starting her workday. However, one day she got stuck on a clue that read “Unconscious state.” She tried to think of the answer, but her mind drew a blank. She sipped her coffee and stared out the window, hoping for a clue from the outside world.
Suddenly, she heard a loud crash from the living room. Her cat had knocked over a vase, and Samantha rushed to clean up the mess. As she was sweeping up the glass, she accidentally bumped her head on the coffee table. She felt a sharp pain and then everything went blank.
She woke up in a hospital bed, surrounded by family and friends. A doctor explained that she had been in a coma for a few days and they were worried she might never wake up. Samantha was confused and disoriented, but eventually, she fully regained consciousness and was able to recover.
It wasn’t until she returned home that she remembered the crossword clue that had stumped her. She smiled as she wrote in the answer: “COMA.” Now, every time she saw that word or thought of it, she was reminded of the strange and scary experience that had led her to finally solve that puzzle.
