Now you may be wondering, who was wearing the bolo tie? Me or the shark? Answer: YES!

Kari had to agree, looking into the water on the floor, that drinking it probably wasn't the best idea. She drank from Mizore's bottle, unaware of how parched she'd become. Gulping down all of it, of course, would be a bit rude, so she set the depleted bottle down aft

"Hey."

If there was one thing she really hated, it was waking up. Once she'd got into the groove, staying up hours and hours past a reasonable bedtime wasn't that bad. But in the morning, before she could gather her willpower - ugh. And this time it was even worse than normal, because she was faintly cognizant through the haze of where she was. She'd dreamt of being safe and sound in St. Paul. But that world was slipping away, peeling off in fragments like an onionskin, and it seemed that if only she wished hard enough the swiftly retreating fantasy could become reality...

In short, she couldn't be bothered to move for a simple "Hey."

The next thing is what did it for her.

Gone.

Why in the world would someone do that? The cavern felt like a fortress, and as long as it didn't become a dangerzone-

Dangerzones. She'd slept through the announcement. For a moment, she was furious. The next, she was grateful. He hadn't woken her up then, and she could have died if the caves had been declared off-limits. But then, she realized, he hadn't woken her up because the caves weren't a dangerzone. Still, uncertaintly gnawed at her mind. How was her group faring? Were they in danger? Had she let them die by her absence? Worse yet was the heartrending thought - what if they'd died while trying to find her? She shuddered a little, then forced herself slowly to her feet.

"No idea why Mizore is go-aaaahhhh-ne," she said, failing to suppress the yawn in the middle of her sentence. "I've been asleep since she gave me her water bottle. Like, is her stuff gone? And I think I missed the announcements, too. Did Carol or-" She paused, pressing her forehead into one hand, wishing she could sleep properly and restore her powers of recall. "Ugh, brainfart, Simon Grey, and, uh, Rein? I mean, was there anything about them? 'Cause I was with them, and I dunno... ugh, I dunno what's happened to them. You know anything?"
