*It’s been more than a few weeks since arriving at the new base, and during those weeks, rather than face meeting her roommate and settling in the barracks, Sophie had set up camp in her office. Eventually, though, even she has to admit she’s being ridiculous; her roommate probably won’t bite, and if she does, well, Sophie’s sure she or one of the other medics on base have a vaccination for that.
She pulls her suitcase down from the top of her drug cabinet and packs up to move into her assigned room, tossing her tequila bottle and whiskey in at the last minute after taking a gracious swig from the whiskey— because god knows she can’t do this completely sober—, and takes a moment to feel ashamed over how at-home she’s made herself in the office… Hm. Maybe that scared any potential patients away, the thought of a crazy hermit medic lady.
Pillow under her arm and suitcase in hand, she trudges through the base to the rooms, finding herself staring at the door to her assigned number, apprehensive, but with a warm buzz in her chest from the shot. The only thing left to do now is open the door and try to settle in.*
Zamira was sitting in her room, on her bed. Just… Sitting there, on her bed, staring at a piece of paper in front of her with a blank look on her face. She had felt lonely, sure, with her roommate not there but she was fine just being alone. In the room with two beds. Ok yeah she felt sad and lonely. She’d been too embarrassed to even hunt down her roommate and say hello. Wuss.
She sighed, rubbing her eyes. Gosh darn it, Zamira, just get your ass off the mattress and go to that office. You know where it is. It’s just a hop, a skip, and a quick run down the hall to the location. Nope, she was too much of a child to even go say hi.
“That’s it, Ah’m gettin’ up,” she muttered, hopping off the bed and sending her paper flying. Oops, better pick that up and put it on the table. Now she could leave. So with a sigh she yanked open the door, and nearly ran into the very medic she was about to go greet.
“Oh… Uh… Howdy?” she said, eyes wide as she backed up with a squeak, “Um… Welcome?”
