Today is different. The quality of the light is different, she’s sure, but it doesn’t feel like she’s been asleep for long this time. Her body doesn’t ache so much, though, and she wonders if the fever’s finally gone. The ninja tentatively looks around the room, then stands and stretches. She winces when the stretch strains her bandage, but feels clear-headed for the first time in days.

She walks to the kitchen and opens the fridge, squinting into the bright light. She drinks juice from the carton and revels in the act. She knows this will be a good day.
