It’s going to be another long sleepless night. It’s frustrating sometimes to be one of the only people awake, while the world slumbers. I am hot, my uniform seems too warm for the conditions and it sticks to me uncomfortably.
The loneliness is the worst part. Okay, my supervisor does come around periodically to check on things, but for the most part I am alone here in the night. I often wonder why I signed up for this in the first place. It’s not like the money’s that good, and the odd hours just emphasise that to me.
I jump as a light comes on on the control panel in front of me. It is the moment I have trained for! I hope I am up to the challenge.
