Aleks had been sitting in the same position in the same chair staring at the same book for far too long again that day. As he read the same page for what must have been the tenth time, he finally gave in to the sigh he’d been holding in. By now his clothes reeked of stale coffee and he’d hours ago reluctantly pulled out a pair of wire glasses to ease the eyestrain from the dim lights that couldn’t quite cut through the shadows in the corner he’d hid himself away in. The evening din finally died down but he still hadn’t been able to turn the page. Setting down the book, he slid back in his seat and rubbed at his temple, resigning himself to another sleepless night.
