Charity wasn't so sure when she became an insomniac-- but it was something entirely knew for her. She loved to sleep, couldn't sleep enough really. So the fact that she had tossed and turned in her bad was strange. Her first thought was to get up and do something constructive; but then she realized it was only day three of classes, there were no essays to grade and nothing to set up for the next lesson. So she went for a walk, and that led her to the staff room.
Before sitting in one of the plush arm chairs by the fireplace, she brewed a pot of tea and stood to look out the window as the rain pounded the side of the building. It was like the beginning of a muggle horror in some aspects, and in others it was extremely calming. Charity had fond memories of the sound of rain fall from her camping trips as a child. She sighed, pressing a hand against the glass and closing her eyes. Then, the whistle of her tea brought her out of her fog.
She grabbed the pot, and moved to sit by the fire with her latest novel lying in her lap as she sipped at her tea. She was so involved in her thoughts and her reading she didn't hear the door open.
