He woke up, with a start, found that William had crawled into his bed next to him and was dead asleep. Pleasantly warm.
... William had been a little distant since they'd arrived on the planet, so it was welcome.
He seemed to have been a little more rattled by everything happening around them than he let on.
But he was always a little bit like that.
It was something Nova liked about him.
He watched his face intently for a moment.
He normally looked peaceful when he slept, but at the moment, his brow was furrowed, as though having a stressful dream.
" N... da... coma... dore..." Faint impressions of words mumbled feverishly.
Nova wondered if he was having another nightmare.
