Johnnie looked up, mortified, in rumpled t-shirt
and run pants,
one suspender fallen down over his arm.
"*Cough* Sorry cap. Uh, just a sec, I gotta...uh.

"Well hurry it up.." Chet mumbled even more grumpy

Marco and Mike in tandem.
"Arff!!" Bonnie yapped
Roy jumped in his bed from his sound sleep at the
noise and nap jerked awake, "HUhhhHH?!
Ohmygod..*sniff* ohhhh, it's the d*mned dog.
Johnnie would you let her out? I'm too sleepy

"Yeah, ok. I will, buddy. Right after making a phone
"Will you starting dialing already?!" Marco snapped,
flipping over on his pillow and squinting
He immediately buried his head under his pillow in a
vain attempt to block out
the idle unwelcome chitchat
filling his bedspace. His voice sounded five octaves
lower than normal
"ok, yeah. Just hang on.. I gotta, gotta look up the
number here." Johnnie said.
"Marco.. You shoulda let
me and Roy take a look at ya after that four alarm.
You're really losing

"uh, what Cap? I was just helping out." Gage's smile
twitched as he balanced
the phone onto his ear while
he dialed his number in the dim light he was trying to
shield in vain..
"I am a paramedic after all. I mean
it's my duty to be part of a team. To look out after

"Well, it's definitely 12/5 for me Gage. Shhh!" Chet
"That goes for me too.." Mike added.
Johnny jilted in his chair when he heard
the sound of
pissing fill the air. "No! Bonnie no!!" and he
dropped the phone on the desk in a
dive to reach the
Boston Yorky squatting in the middle of the linoleum
floor. "Bad girl.. Baddd.."
he hissed in a whisper.
Chet piped up sleepily, "What? That aimed at your |
date for refusing you yet again?"
scent of a second Bonnie misdeed reached them
"Gage! Clean it
"Johnny,.. you should have hurried.."
John was on his hands and knees scrambling for

papertowels. He flipped open the door and
snatched for it, all the while stammering apologies
and short failed jokes under the guys
"Ow.! Ok. All right already.. " he said when a
ballistic pillow from Marco nailed
him across the
"I'm hurrying I'm hurrying. Just let me flush this..."
and he hastened
to the john with his steaming burden
Bonnie cheerfully followed him the whole way.
A brief peace reigned over the bunks except for the
desklight and snores punctuated the air.
Then Johnny came back into the room, sat down in the

four days with no sleep."
"Get to BED!!" Cap roared.
"Groovy, Cap. Just what I was saying.."
Gage knew he'd pushed as far as he could get away|
with and reluctantly set the phone down again, his
whole purpose of non sleeping going unfulfilled.
"Gage.. If you aren't under those covers in five
seconds, I'm assigning you a month's tower detail!!
Five! Four! Three!!"
Gage shot out of the
chair, slid on the floor in
his boots in a dash for his cubicle.
"Gage! The light!" Marco rasped.
Johnny belly slid across the floor to the light's plug
and yanked it.

Bonnie began to howl at the rising tension from

mattress, the bed
