a new morning a lonly road
Posted on Thu Jan 28th, 2021 @ 10:24am by 1st Lieutenant Robert Razer
Robert awoke in his bed. there was no sound and the room was dark. the room was warm as he lay there staring at the ceiling. for the first time ever he was not awakened by a bad dream. or the memories of the past. after everything that's he been going through. his stress levels have been high. but after the last mission now there wasn't so much to worry about. now he could relax on the trip to the next mission. Robert sat up. today's gonna be a day of relaxation Robert thought to himself. right before the mission started Robert needed some time off. Robert slowly got up and took a hot shower he took his time under the hot water. he then dressed in casual clothing. so he was comfortable. Robert began to take a walk around the ship going down halls usually less traffic. Because of their location on the ship, no one walked down them. Robert somehow found that he made his way to the gym. it was late in the morning so there was not a lot of crew members in the gym Robert decided to work out a bit. began with a light run to warm up. then went over to the free weights deciding to pump some iron. after hitting the weights. Robert took a quick shower in the gym and made his way to the mess hall for a light breakfast. but making sure to order his coffee last in order to take to the observation deck.
Robert stood in front of the clear wall looking into the fast-moving space passing the window. Robert stared out into the abyss no thoughts no emotion a sense of loneliness struck him. as he wondering if he will ever find someone to be with. he spent his whole life exploring what he forgot about when he got home. he would walk alone in many starbases. no welcoming community. no one waiting for him. Robert took another swig of his coffee black. turned and headed back to his office he needed to study for the mission ahead. it was all that he had. the only thing keeping his sanity. for that is all he had in his life.
