She wakes up to movement beside her. The sheets are tangled around her legs, twisted in an endless knot of fabric, she feels strangely cool, goose bumps rising on her skin and she lets out a muffled moan as she turns, trying to bury herself back into the sheets. Her head is pounding, a dull ache running through her and she burrows into the lumpy pillow, squeezing her eyes shut more tightly in hopes of falling back into the dark, peaceful oblivion. The bed dips beside her for a second and she is aware of movement and dim light and finally she pries open her eyes to squint upwards.
Grace is sat with her back to her. She’s already dressed again, her loose shirt hanging out of her britches and she’s pulling at her hair, braiding it down her back with nimble fingers. It takes Hannah a moment to click everything together, watching with fascination as Grace intertwines the strands quickly, before jolting suddenly upwards, clasping the sheet around her naked body.
