Re: [Dream Training]
Hannah woke just when she was supposed to and just on time, but she didn't open her eyes immediately. It wasn't that anything she'd seen had shaken her, and she didn't feel drowsy or disoriented. She'd kind of thought she would feel strange, fuzzy, or like she couldn't remember everything with the same clarity as she would upon normally waking. But she didn't feel any of these things. She felt just the same as always, as if she'd walked from one room to the other.
She didn't do any three things immediately or not immediately. She just listened as Eames said her name, and she smiled when he deliberately poked at Arthur with his comment about Arthur watching him sleep. For a second, just one, she wondered about their relationship again, but she wasn't any closer to understanding it than she had been, at least not on Arthur's end.
But she really, really didn't want to eavesdrop, so she blinked her eyes a few times and then she took her time sitting up and swinging her legs over the side of the cot. She smoothed down messy copper hair, and she looked from one man to the other. She wasn't really sure what she was supposed to have learned, but she knew there were important things in the experience. "I think I scared Eames," she said with her usual candor. If there was an elephant in the room, Hannah usually chose to talk about it. These words were directed at Arthur with a smile. "But I still don't understand how we make dreams," she explained, looking from one man to the other. "Eames made that dream, and I could move the chairs, but how do you make one from scratch?"
