She sighed and bit her lower lip and then whispered "You deserve someone better, my love...". Since he fell asleep, she didnt want to disturb his sleep by staying but he had asked her to stay with him. She quietly snuggled by his side and slowly fell asleep, feeling comforted by the sounds of his steady breathing and his exquisite scent that she loved so much.
Light woke and stretched as she sat up. She got up and took a quick shower, putting on new bandaging. After she was dressed, she hung Sheppard's dog tags from her neck, the tags themselves resting between her breasts, beneath the black strip of cloth that covered them. She closed the bedroom door behind her, leaving Sheppard to sleep as she walked to the bar.
Silver slowly woke with Jade in his arms. Though reluctant to get up, he knew he couldn't sleep forever. He carefully got up and pulled the sheets over Jade. Then he walked to the glass balcony doors and pulled the semi-thick sheer curtains so the sun wouldn't wake her up. He took a long shower and came out of the bathroom only half-dressed, his bottom half clothed while his upper half remained bare. Silver quietly left the room, drying his wet hair with a towel. He closed the door softly behind him and went to go check on Sayori.
Sheppard suddenly sat up, sweat dripping from every pore. His ears were ringing and Sheppard started to massage his temples. He had been dreaming again, and this one had not been pleasant. He swung his legs off the bed and sat, holding his head in his hands. He stood and walked to the bathroom. He washed his face and looked into the mirror. Sheppard occasionally suffered from such nightmares do to his PTSD, but this one had seemed too real. His ears finally stopped ringing and his headache was starting to ease. He bathed quickly and dressed himself again. Sheppard retrieved his jacket from the corner and slipped it on. He stepped out of the room and headed to the bar. He sat in the seat he was in the previous day, and he found his hat and assault rifle still sitting on the counter there.
