Sleep Tight

Peter blinked twice, thrice. Squinted. Peered. Rubbed the gunk away. Nope, the image right in front of his puffy eyes didn't change, and the lights being powered down to conserve energy did nothing to obscure the fact that a small body was pressed against him where his bed had been decidedly empty before.

A furry one. Warm. Plushie soft. Wait -

Rocket was lying curled up right beside him, bushy tail sort of wrapped around himself, whiskers vibrating with every breath he took. He made little snuffling noises, nose twitching and ears perking up before falling flat.

Whacking his brain, Peter vaguely remembered movement, the memory foam dipping, and perhaps, before that, the faintest sound of thrashing and distress, distorted by the Milano's metal hull.

Nightmare. Implants. Comfort. Right, that matched up. Made perfect sense.

Peter blinked again, suddenly a lot more alert. He looked around, very, very, extremely carefully, for anything that might be used as a weapon. Against him, the breakable half-human, come tomorrow. Or worse, anything even remotely gun-shaped. That might explode.

Satisfied, spotting nothing of the sort, and still a little fuzzy in a sleep-deprived happy-go-lucky way, he settled back down with a huge yawn. He would, no doubt, pay with a scratched face, but waking with an armful of purring raccoon? So worth it.

The End

Thanks! :) I took an instant liking to Rocket and Peter, and the movie in general. Honestly, I hadn't expected much from GotG, but the opening scene, with the 'monster-microphone' and the music and the dancing,- it was enough to make me fall for that merry band of misfits :)

I went to the movie for Lee Pace, TBH, and while he was nice enough, watching it in German without his own voice was a bit disappointing, as far as watching him goes. ;o) But we both were hooked right on the spot by the music, since it's the music of your youth; and well-made furry creatures always have a big bonus with me...
