Luke 's POV -- "Please stop." I whispered, quietly urging Calum my dorm mate to stop snoring from his bed across the room. It was late, the stars were out, the room was dark and I should have been asleep, but I couldn 't seem to get to any shut eye with Calums ridiculously obnoxious snoring practically rattling the bed. Though, maybe it was also because my excitement for the coming day. My first day in college. More specifically Stanford University. The mere thought of taking a step in the direction of becoming a criminal therapist had my heart thumping, so having such little time until officially starting college was causing my mind to race uncontrollably. I definitely was not getting to sleep any time soon. Sighing, I sat up in bed, running a hand through my mussed hair and pulling the covers off of my body. The air was cold for a California night, bringing goosebumps to my skin as I crept towards the door. I was keeping quiet in fear of waking Calum because I really didn 't want to deal with a grumpy kiwi, but I wasn 't sure what could possibly wake him when he could sleep through his own pig-like sounds. Slipping on my shoes I walked into the hallway, quietly closing the door behind me. I let out a breath I didn 't know I had been holding and turned, looking down the long corridor. I began to wander down it, memorizing the names written on the white boards hanging on their doors. I smiled at a particular one, stopping in my tracks to admire it. The spindling

My first day of college at Thomas Nelson Community College I was so nervous, being in a new school where I don’t know anybody was kind of frightening. I thought I would feel the same way about college as I did for high school. In high school, all my teachers prepared me the hard way to prepare for college and what to expect. My goal is to finish out 2 years at Thomas Nelson Community College and transfer to a four-year college to continue my goal in life to become a Registered Nurse (RN). When I arrived at Thomas Nelson I was very nervous because, so many thoughts went through my head to say as if what if I can’t handle it or what if I’m not smart enough. It was just a lot of pressure that I put on myself until I got a better understanding of everything because it’s a lot I needed to improve as in school. I was excited to be realizing a lifelong dream, but I was also scared.
He couldn’t sleep much that night. John had been kept awake from the chirping of the crickets and the buzzing of the bees. Noises like that were unfamiliar to the him for he had usually slept inside in the comfort of having walls and never worried of being crept up on.
I don’t know how long I have been faking sleep, but the slow creak of the door startles me still. I can hear the slow, lumbering footsteps, feel their vibrations on the floor. When they stop, I can sense him bending over me, his hot breath fanning over my neck. “Nice to see you again, Ms. Esther Miller.” His gravelly voice causes goosebumps of fear to shiver down
My body was enclosed in soft fluffy blankets. Though it felt so good to be back in my own bed I also felt out of place. It was too peaceful almost, like the calm before a storm. I got out of bed dragging one of my smaller blankets with me. I wrapped it around myself as I approached my living room. I smiled seeing Shanes sleeping form sprawled across my couch. I tip toed my way to him and nudged his shoulder. "Hey Shane wake up." I spoke softly. He groaned and batted my hand away.
If that incessant ringing hadn’t woken you, then his fumbling around the room absolutely would have. In an effort to not wake you, he tried walking on his toes, but creaks from doors and crashes from the kitchen beckoned you to get ready for the day anyway. You didn’t need to be awake for hours, but with Sonny’s job he wasn’t always around, so you took the opportunity to be with him. Slipping from beneath the sheets, you staggered
migraines, she feared getting up abruptly would trigger the habitual nausea, so she took a deep breath and relaxed her tense muscles, opening her senses to her surroundings. A refreshing whiff of salty air filled the room and the distant rumbling sound of crashing waves against rocks soothed her. Those were familiar to her, after living by the ocean for the last four years. Her lips curved up as she smoothed the soft bed linen under her palms. As she stretched on the mattress that hugged her body, she reached up and tucked her hands under the pillow. Extra soft, probably stuffed with goose feathers.
Randy woke up early and put on his sweatpants. “Why can’t I ever sleep in?” Randy silently muttered to nobody in particular. The sun had not even come over the horizon yet and his alarm had already went off. He blinked the sleep from his eyes and sighed, “Here we go again.” Slapping a baseball cap on his head he slouched out of his bedroom door.
Knock knock. The restless man sits up straight in his bed. As his eyes peer about his box-crowded bedroom he notices a sliver of light peeking beneath the door. The sound comes again, yet more urgent. As Yeager tiptoes his way toward the door, the hairs on the back of his neck slowly begin to lie at rest. “I can’t sleep,” says a soft childish voice on the other side. As he opened the door,
The soft chime of a bell pulled her attention from the window. Namid slowly stirred in the bed, opening her eyes as she stretched. She blinked and reached up to wipe the sleep from her eyes. The sense of uneasiness washed over Inara. It was something she knew well, her sisters fear that she would one day wake up back in her hell. "It's all right Gidget." Inara gently got her sisters attention and smiled. Namid smiled softly in return, a sense of dread lifted as Namid's mind caught up with what was
Getting ready for bed was the second most dreading expertise of the night.There has been no sleep just silence. Every once in awhile the branches outside her window would knock the glass caused by the empty winds. This would only add onto the silence. Her sorrow's eye would just stare into nothing trying to find something, anything really. All was lost for now at least.
Rae could sense something was off. Rae opened one eye and grumbled. “Don’t you ever sleep?” His reply was soft, gentle, and simple yet she could hear the worry in his voice “No, never.” Then she remembered hearing that the Servant never sleeps. Rae sat up rubbing her eyes then patted the bed next to her. “Come here and sit. Tell me what’s wrong? I can feel an unease coming from you.”
He told himself one last time before collapsing onto his bed looking forward to the deep slumber that awaited him. A knock on his door delayed his sleep and he jumped off the bed with a growl and flung open the door ready to kill the fool who dared bothered him. His anger subsided instantly at the sight of two frighten and tired eyes.
Music blared from my alarm cloak, I groaned and poked my hand out of my blanket and blindly patted the top of my nightstand, there was a loud crash before Justin Bieber finally shushed up. I brought my hand back underneath my blanket. As the noise was replaced by silence, sleep overtook me.
I wake up to the sound of birds chirping and the rustling of my curtain as the wind from my open window blows it around. Lina is still asleep on the couch just snoring away. I quietly laugh to myself as I get up to go brush my teeth. The TV is still on and blaring. Good thing Lina is a heavy sleeper! I reach between the couch cushions to find the remote, careful to not
