You groan and lift your arms, feeling a sudden tightness in one as gauze fell to the blankets. Right, you were injured last night. You lightly scratch at the shallow wound and sigh.
A heavy weight rests on your shoulders and you slump forward. You swipe a hand across your eyes and sigh again, feeling the dried tracks of tears against your cheeks.

Someone knocks at your door.
You attempt to answer but can only vocalize a soft grumble.
"I'm heading out...I uh...Should be back in an hour."
