A Little Too Hard [Open]

It was during those strange, liminal hours; those hours that could be considered very early morning and those hours that could be considered very late night all the same. What they were were the hours that a wherhandler might reasonably be awake, and it was clear that Dusk's squadsecond had probably intended to be.

At some point.

But with a jug of iced tea still half-full, and maybe that was supposed to be hot tea at some point but now it's certainly still cold ... well, with her jug still before her and a plate of cold food and her notes spread around, it looked as if Tikaya had intended to have a nice working meal but had gotten too absorbed in the work, put her head down for just a second and there she was, asleep on her work again on the dining hall table. Her spectacles were crooked and at risk of getting bent, and she seemed dead to the world.

At least she didn't snore.

Tisk, outside, was fully awake and seemed very amused at this situation should anyone have inquired with him. No, he wasn't trying to wake her. Maybe she needed the nap.

Geoffrey didn't mind going for a quick snack in the early hours of the day, kept him awake with some extra energy to burn if some intense event were to jump on everyone out of nowhere. A quick snack run, that's all it would be, he'd eat something and then he'd get back on his nightly duties as squadleader.

But, when he walked into the Dining Hall and saw his squadsecond lying on the table, paper everywhere and food probably colder than Winter, he approached her with a small amount of caution. Placing a hand on the girl's back and giving her a quick shake to make sure that she wasn't dead- well, he figured she wasn't dead, he could see that she was breathing- and that she was just sleeping. "Hey, Tikaya-" Geoffrey said in a soft voice, not wanting to shock her awake with a loud one. "Tikaya, wake up, yer food's gonna get cold if yer sleepin' there like a log."

Eldreosk had come with Geoffrey to get the snack and was glad to see another wher from his squad there. Hello, he said to the other wher. Handler good?

Tisk managed some expressively welcoming exhalation noises, giving his tail the tiniest little social swing. Fine, he confirmed quietly. While not much of a talker, sometimes a word or two were required -- and Tikaya must have been all right, because Tisk was radiating contentment and satisfaction at meeting up with Eldreosk.

As for Tikaya? No, she definitely wasn't dead. Despite her not snoring. She made a little 'nngh' noise at being jostled, then opened one eye. "Wha --"

Then the other eye. She sat up slowly, adjusting the spectacles. "Oh. Oh, I suppose time must have passed -- um, hello, sorry about that ..."
