They showered together before he returned, bedraggled, to his slightly less interesting quarters, not entirely avoiding the stares of some crewmen he passed in the corridor leading away from Ripley's quarters. Then he dragged on another brand new red uniform – the previous one had been completely ruined beyond repair. After that, he went for breakfast at the officer's mess, getting back into the routine once again. He was starving – no, ravenous after yesterday's performance. Last nights too, for that matter.
