C 2/2 - Commission.
The air in the room is cold, biting
even, leaving the exposed skin of Jason’s cheek, nose and shoulder stinging and
tingling a little. It keeps him from falling back asleep, although he isn’t
quite awake yet and hovering in that strange place between dreaming and waking.
After a strangely mild autumn, winter has come fast, and with it a drop in temperature Jason hasn’t expected at all. Over the last week, it had been continuously getting colder, but yesterday must have been the coldest day yet. From the feel of it, things only got worse overnight. On top of that, the cheap student dorms Jason chooses to live in these days hardly have working heating or any sort of isolation which results in Jason shivering pretty much constantly, even now, buried under his blanket up to his nose.
