It’s become a habit for Shiro to roam the halls of the castle every night around three in the morning ever since he’s gotten back.
While before he would do it every now and then, lately he’s been doing it around the same time every night. It’s just a part of his routine.
He’ll go to sleep around ten or eleven with most everyone else, and he sleeps pretty soundly until around three. He’ll go for a walk around the castle by himself for about an hour, then retire to his room once again and sleep until six or seven, depending on what’s on the roster for that particular day.
He’s not sure where this came from. Maybe it’s because he’s paranoid that someone might attack while everyone is asleep, maybe he wants to make sure everyone is alright, maybe he feels some kind of need to protect them from getting stolen away by the Galra, something he has far too much experience with. Shiro doesn’t know, and he doesn’t really question it that much. Sleep, walk, sleep. It works for him, so why bother to change it?
