Have I ever voluntarily been up this early? I stayed up with Petr for days straight in the hospital, but this is different. This is camp. I need coffee and a hot shower before I'm ready to start my day. I'm not sure why I'm staggering around the room getting dressed as quickly as possible. I'd like to think it's because the kids might need me.

But I'm pretty sure it's because my sleepy mind is listening to Captain Mathis' curt order.

With a sigh, I sweep my hair up into a ponytail and walk through the dorm, emerging into a chilly morning. In shorts and a long sleeve t-shirt, I'm shivering by the time I make it to the place he calls the pit.

The kids are doing laps. I slow and stare, surprised to see them running around the pit while Captain Mathis stands with someone else in the center. He's dressed similarly in short shorts that reveal the long, thick thighs of a swimmer.

He had to have nice thighs.

More irritated at him, I fold my arms across my chest and approach. The easy smile on his face fades when he catches sight of me. I can almost see him tense. The woman with him, who I recognize from yesterday, turns to face me.

"Good morning," Captain Harper says with a smile. Perky and alert, she looks the opposite of how I feel.

"Morning," I respond.
