Sleepless Night Att: Andronda/D'jarin


Jerzy Tobin
 

Another night, another nightmare. It was impossible to say just how
long Andronda had tossed and turned in her bed, but one thing was
clear: she would not be getting back to sleep. Besides being still
too hot and sticky to be comfortable, it seemed that every time she
closed her eyes she was once again trapped in that crowd, and
everywhere she turned there were knives there waiting for her. Shard
it all, *she* hadn't even been the one to be attacked! So why did she
have to suffer nightmares from it?

'Because you could be next,' she thought to herself savagely. She was
a gold rider, after all. Well, lying there wasn't getting her
anywhere, so Andronda pushed herself out of bed. If she couldn't
sleep, she might as well go for a walk. And since it was night time,
she decided to bring Pochi with her. A walk would do the little
wherpup some good as well.

Outside, the air was still hot and humid, but at least there was a
slight breeze. Overhead heat lightning flickered in the clouds, but
it brought no relief or hint of an actual storm that might help cool
things off.

((Person come!)) Pochi declared, the blue wherpup placing himself in
front of Andronda. ((Pochi not know person.))

"Hello?" Andronda called out. Perhaps it wasn't as late as she had
thought, if she wasn't the only one about. Then again, hot as it was,
there were probably plenty of people who couldn't sleep.
