Elena came awake by degrees. The first thing she noticed was the numb spot where her right hip should be. In the narrow bunk she had no space to move around and stayed in the same position the entire time she was asleep. Smells started drifting in. Bacon and coffee seemed to be the predominant ones with the scent of the sea forming a backdrop. There was a low murmuring sound and she realized it was a soft conversation. Elena slowly opened her eyes and blinked away the accumulated crust of sleep from her eyes. As she pushed herself into a sitting position Benjamin walked over.
