Another Year, a Different Waking
First Reaper76 fanfic, little nervous bout posting this, but nothing ventured nothing gained. If anyone has any tips for improvement, please let me know.
When Jack first woke up, it took him a moment to blink through the haze in his mind, lifting his arm from around his husband’s waist. He turned to roll before letting out a low groan at the ache that shot through his back
Sore shoulders, aching back and legs, it was an amazement he wasn’t hooked on a painkiller yet. Even whatever he had been injected with during the SEP couldn’t prevent minor arthritis, or any of the other aches that came with the job. Although he was pretty sure that the years of fighting, running and hiding had given more aches in a month than he had felt in a year. He stretched his arms out, hearing the cracks of his shoulders before letting an arm drop on his forehead. Eyes barely open, he flexed all his fingers while letting them crack before glancing to his left, almost scowling at the clock.
It didn’t surprise him. He couldn’t remember the last time he had slept through the night.
