Notes: Written for this week’s @rebelcaptainprompts prompt: “one bed”
As per usual, I blame @jeeno2 enabling this. But also, many thanks to her for the quickie beta. ;)
Exhausted beyond words, they fall wordlessly onto the same bunk together after the intense mission. Everyone else busies about with the post-mission activities of gear maintenance, eating, and washing, but neither Cassian nor Jyn find the energy to participate. They’d taken part in a covert side mission requiring them to trek ten miles through rather rough terrain and stormy weather, and quite simply, neither gives a damn about moving in the near future.
For all intents and purpose, the bunk is simply a temporary place to sit and rest their tired legs for a few short minutes until joining the rest of the crew, but the soothing hum of the ship and the unexpected comfort of the flimsy mattress quickly lulls them both into slumber.
In sleep, Cassian moves first, his head lolling gently against Jyn’s shoulder. Over the next few hours, Jyn slumps to her side, the movement of which causes Cassian to continue his wayward lean, and he settles on his side behind her. So deeply asleep, both adjust naturally on the bunk, pulling their legs up and find some form of comfort.
