Contra-Bandy ch15As shameful as it was to admit, my first instinct was to pull the blanket over my head and try to be invisible. Even worse, I almost did it. However, it was easier to quell such a humiliating urge when Shawn was around in any capacity, as he took up all of the Ridiculousness in the room. It was like a reflex or something.
He handed me a steaming mug of tea that smelled strong and bitter, forcing me to sit up. "You kept falling out of your bed."
"This explains nothing."
"I had a lot of homework to do."
"Equally uninformative." I pinched bridge of my nose between my knuckles, holding th
TrepidationThe day went by so slowly it appeared to stop every now and again. I woke up much earlier than I was accustomed to, and had been forced to clean my flat several times before I could even think of leaving for work. It was the first time I could ever remember beating Mr. Defoe to the shop. I'd waited for fifteen minutes and when he'd finally arrived, it took a surprising amount of effort not to bounce impatiently.

HelicaseHelio and I were always sitting on the stairs, chatting about the lamina and occasionally making snide remarks about ribosomes. There wasn't much for us to do. Our job was to simply be, and let the RNA scribble down the letters on our foreheads when they came around every once in a while. Helio was a G, I was a C. It wasn't exactly fulfilling, I suppose. There wasn't much to be filled. So to pass the time, we talked.
"You ever wonder?" Helio asked.
"About...well...what's out there." Helio and I were rooted to the stairs, quite happily, but it was awkward to move in. He kind of twisted in the general direction of the closest pore. "Out in the cytoplasm."
"I haven't," I admitted. "What's there to wonder about?"
"That's exactly the thing. I have no idea." Helio sighed, gazing into the distance. "Somehow it feels like we play this huge, huge role in something important, but how can we when we don't even know what that something is? I want to be something that, that has
