I'm listening to St. Nick.


Exhaustion had taken care of Nick's insomnia; for the first time in over a month, he had needed to set his alarm clock. And when he awoke to its buzz, he just lay in bed for a minute listening to it. Maybe it didn't sound as bad as he remembered. He ate a hurried breakfast of cereal and was surprised at his appetite. Ever since his suspension, food hadn't appealed to him. He hardly took notice of the gun at the table. It was still sitting there right next to the sugar, he was just too rushed to give it much mind.
