Shara wasn’t joking that she kept odd hours. While the nightmares were less, she’d wake up in the middle of the night sometimes panicked and not know why. The dream will have not registered at that point and all she could feel was the same vague unease.
Lying in bed never worked for her, so she got up and grabbed a cup of mint tea. After awhile she’d be sleepy again and so she crawled back into bed after a sonic shower. The pulses just seemed to help just that little bit extra and by the time her head hit the pillow again, she was nearly out.
The reality of sharing a washroom was that if you were awake, then you could tell if someone else was in there. That and they were going to have to agree on a system- maybe just knocking- but she had yet to run into Bethy and she wasn’t sure the COS had actually realized they were next-door to each other.
Shara slept a bit longer and awoke annoyingly at 0500 hours. She went for a workout and came back, slipping in for a shower at 0530. After dressing and sending a message to Faye, she read her messages and read a report. She was killing time, yes, but at least it was productive.
At 0700 hours, Shara slipped out her door and pressed the chime on the next.
