Settling In

Gwen unlocked her apartment and moved inside to slump wearily but happily onto the couch. It had been a long day that she knew would stay with her for the rest of her life and all she felt like doing was sitting down and relaxing. She had earned it.

Kicking off her shoes, she fumbled for the remote and flipped the TV on. She lay back in the couch smiling, knowing that in days to come, she'd be able to save even more people.
