I've been here for hours—long enough to have a sound sleep, wake, and return to myself.
The others all chose the small companionship of physical proximity. None wanted to chance four hours of closeness with an already-sleeping body that might never wake.
I love it here. No one else seems inclined to brave the dark and the stares of all these empty chairs, not even to use the bathroom just over my shoulder. This space is inviolate.
