|Rae was inherently bad at doing nothing. When it came to doing nothing, her mind wandered too much and she found herself thinking of things she didn't want to think about. Internally, she found herself thinking about how different she was now than a year ago. How hard it had been to pull herself back up onto her feet, and how she was happy now... even if it was a different kind of happy.|
Was it a better kind of happy than he'd had a year ago? It was hard to say. But as she turned and looked at Topher where he slept, the warm feeling that bubbled up in her chest was... well... it was hard to identify. It was both the same and different than the love she'd felt for Elliot. She chewed on her lip. Why did she always think of this type of stuff at the worst possible times? Not that it really mattered now. All the time she spent doing nothing all day made it hard to sleep at night, and this was making it worse.
She shook her head and curled into Topher a little bit tighter, closing her eyes and trying again to fall asleep.
As she leaned against him, she breathed slowly, and against her will, her mind found itself wandering to the current situation with the guy creeping outside of the apartment. It seemed like every time she let her guard down, he showed himself. Or... sort of showed himself, anyway.
So, then why was she having such a hard time keeping her eyes open? Topher was sleeping. Some well-deserved sleep. She needed to stay vigilant. I need to stay awake... just in case... she turned her attention toward EJ for a moment, as he slept peacefully, and before Rae even had a chance to envy him, she found herself drifting off into sleep.
Which was a shame, because if she'd been fully awake, she'd have heard the sound of the metal of a lockpick scraping in the door.
