Hannah cursed softly and threw back the sheets, swinging her legs out of the small cot and onto the steel floor. She couldn't sleep. That wasn't a new phenomenon for her, especially so soon after a shift change. She was on the four to midnight shift at the moment, but last week she'd been on midnights. Her body was irritated with her.
Of course, the problem with living on a warship, particularly a British warship, was you couldn't simply pad down the hall to the kitchen in your underwear, nor even in a robe. You most especially couldn't do so where ratings could see you and perhaps lose respect for you as an officer. It had been hard enough gaining that respect in the first place, and Hannah had no intention of endangering it through laziness.
