Franz looked at the clock, seeing that the time was 0100 hours. He had been unable to sleep the past few nights, missing his wife and daughters. He knew it was part of the life that he was living now, being part way around the world again. Sometimes, he wondered if it was worth it, but only time would tell overall.

Standing up, he walked out of his room and down the hallway. It was only minimally lit, owing to the late hour with which he walked. He had heard that a few new people had been brought on, filling out the team to maximum capacity. After a few moments, Franz found himself in their lounge, and walked over to the window, looking out. He caught the light from the nearby city, and smiled for a moment. Was weird to think that he was in Texas in the US, his temporary home.

There were things he missed, such as the foothills, the green grass for a good majority of the year, and the vegetation that was all over. But, Texas was interesting so far. It was flat, but it offered a good ability to hunt, or be in solitude if you wanted for a bit.

He walked over to the mess area, and put some water into the microwave to heat up. Perhaps some tea would help. While the microwave heated it up, he found some chamomile, which was supposed to help make people sleep. Once the microwave beeped, he pulled the tea out and got it prepared. Taking it along with him, Franz sat back down in the lounge, and picked up a book to read. Hopefully, his mind would calm down a little.
