Setting: Some hallway somewhere. I know, I'm so specific.
I was sick. Had been for a few days, actually. I'd been coughing, with a sore throat, nausea and a slight fever. Though I was feeling much better than I had a few days ago, I still had a cough, which was no fun for anyone. I should have been in bed, but I'd grown tired of sitting around and resting. I needed to escape the common room, so I'd gone for a walk. I'd started to feel a little weak, however, so I sat down in an alcove, leaning back against the wall. I really didn't need this. Then again? Things could be much worse. I took a look at the ring on my hand and felt much better. I straightened up a little, looking down the hall when I thought I heard someone approaching.
