Kuto was in a deep sleep when he felt something tickling his nose. He slowly opened his eyes to see a small black ant crawling on his face. With a quick reflex, he flicked it away and sat up, fully awake now. His heart was pounding in his chest as he looked around the dark room, trying to remember where he was.
Suddenly it all came back to him. He was in Bermuda, staying in a hotel room by himself while on vacation. The sun had gone down hours ago and he must have fallen asleep without realizing it. Now that he was wide awake, there was no way he would be able to go back to sleep.
He got out of bed and turned on the light, squinting against the sudden brightness after being in darkness for so long. As his eyes adjusted, he looked around the room and saw that everything was just as he had left it before going to sleep; His backpack was sitting on the floor next to the bed and his passport and wallet were safely tucked away inside of it.
He let out a sigh of relief and then went over to check the locks on the door leading out into the hallway. Once satisfied that everythingwas secure, Kuto walked back over to his backpack and pulled out a book that he had been meaning to read but never seemedto find time for at home .
