Hmm. Exactly what do you need help with? And opening sentence? You're having writer's block over the entire first chapter?

OK. You could start with them waking up. If it's during a battle or something, it could even be to the sound of gunfire. Or maybe they're in a conversation with someone. Or maybe they have amnesia...?
