6/11 Instance: Up All Night

Postby tears~fall~like~glass » Mon Jun 11, 2012 11:03 pm

timeline: before Assssault


Laura: Laura had attempted to sleep but had woken up fairly soon after dozing off. She laid on her back and studied the ceiling for a few moments before glancing over to her roommate with a slight frown. Jessica appeared to be asleep, though sleep was generally considered a quiet activity. Slightly concerned at the noise and movement, Laura moved to sit up, debating what exactly to do.

Jessica: Jess moaned in her sleep as she tried to force herself awake and out of the dream. She knew how it was going to end and she didn't want to see it. She rolled over again and got further tangled in the sheets.

Laura: She eventually decided the sensible thing to do would be to wake her up and got up, cautiously making her way to her roommate's bed. Laura shifted a bit awkwardly before hesitantly reaching out to poke at the other girl's shoulder, preparing herself for the possibility of being hit if she woke up.

Jessica: Jess woke with a start and a yell, sitting up and charging a venom blast. She stopped just short of hitting Laura with it and looked around, breathing heavily.

Laura: Laura took a step back at the green glow, not particularly wanting to be on the receiving end of the blast since she'd seen what those could do.

Jessica: Was she awake now? She let the charge fade away and looked at Laura, "Um... sorry..."

Laura: She moved back to her previous spot since there was no threat now and nodded, "It is fine..."

Jessica: She ran a hand through her hair and tried to untangle herself from the sheets, she needed to get up and walk around or something. "I, er... I didn't wake you did I?"

Laura: "No," she answered, pausing before offering, "I was already awake."

Jessica: "Okay.... good.... um... thanks for waking me up..."

Laura: "You are welcome." Laura moved to sit back down on her bed, considering Jess before asking, "Are you alright?"

Jessica: "I-.... yes... I'm... no..." Jess paced the floorspace in the room to work out the nervous energy, "I don't know..."

Laura: Her brow furrowed at the answer, not completely sure how to respond to it because it wasn't exactly straightforward. Her first instinct was to ask how she did not know, but, from what she'd gathered from others interacting, that wouldn't go over very well. "I... I do not sleep well either," she got out awkwardly.

Jessica: "Oh.... you don't?" Jess wasn't sure she believed that.

Laura: Laura shook her head, hesitating a little, "It was why I was already awake."

Jessica: "Oh... well.... I'm sorry to hear that... what keeps you up?"

Laura: She frowned slightly, finally glancing down to her blankets, "Living... Living with Dr. Essex was not always... pleasant. He ran tests."

Jessica: "You... you have nightmares to-... uh... I mean.... um..." she bit her lip and looked down at the floor.

Laura: "I do," she simply agreed, even though she was curious as to whether that statement was going to go any further. "Quite frequently."

Jessica: "Always the same?" Jess finally moved to sit down again.

Laura: "For the most part," she nodded, suddenly feeling somewhat strange. She'd never talked about this with anyone before. Brushing the feelings off, Laura continued, "Dr. Essex ran a variety of tests to determine how strong my healing capabilities are."

Jessica: "That sounds.... awful...." she gave her a sympathetic look.

Laura: "Radiation poisoning was fairly awful," she nodded sagely.

Jessica: "Yeah.... I can imagine... immune to that myself but... yeah.... I'm sorry...."

Laura: "It is not your fault," Laura shook her head. "There is also the procedure where he removed my claws. Those are the main... nightmares..."

Jessica: She squirmed a little at the idea of her having he claws removed. That had to hurt. "That sounds horrible too...."

Laura: "They were not originally metal."

Jessica: "They weren't?" she climbed back under the sheets as she was a little chilly now.

Laura: She shook her head again, "Bone."

Jessica: "And they... put metal on them?"

Laura: Laura nodded, "Then, he put them back in my arms and feet."

Jessica: Jess bit her lip, "That sounds like it hurt a lot...."

Laura: "They were not painless to begin with," she shrugged, feeling the need to move the topic away from her, "What about your nightmare?"

Jessica: She sighed, looking away from the other girl. "A few years ago I was involved in a really bad car crash.... ever since that stuff on the highway it's all just... come flooding back..."

Laura: "Oh..." She eyed her for a few moments before remembering that it made Jess uncomfortable and found somewhere else to look, "That sounds... unpleasant."

Jessica: "It was.... that was when my dad died... but it was physically the most painful time for me too... it was just.... I never want to go through anything like that again."

Laura: Laura nodded, "I do not think I would want to go through any of Dr. Essex's tests again either."

Jessica: "Yeah..." she sighed, "I'm probably not going to get back to sleep now... if you want I'll go for a walk or something so I don't disturb you..."

Laura: "You are fine," she replied, "I am not likely to sleep much as well. I usually just lay in bed until it is an acceptable time to be awake."

Jessica: "Well... we could both go and do something else.... usually I just go and make tea..."

Laura: "That sounds like it would be nice."

Jessica: "Okay then, let's go and do that." she gave Laura a smile and got up again, reaching for her robe as she headed for the door.

Laura: Laura managed a slight smile in return as she moved to stand, pausing as she curiously tilted her head, "I will not be required to... hug... you at any point in time, correct? From what I understand, that is what most would do in a situation similar to this."

Jessica: "Not unless you want to," she replied, pulling on her robe.

Laura: "I believe I will withhold that action for now. I do not think either of us would find it enjoyable..." she replied and started for the door after her once again.

Jessica: "Maybe in a few months we'll try it out, huh?" she tied her robe and stepped out into the hall.

Laura: Laura nodded, "Perhaps."
