Look at me! I'm posting again! Yay!
Norm took it upon himself to show Ava the lessons Max had uploaded onto the pad, and he insisted that I lay down and rest before I did anymore viewing. That's when he showed me out behind the long-house where they'd pulled together a hammock that looked a lot like the one I'd used my first night in Hometree. After I made sure Ava was okay with Norm and Thomas was out in the obstacle course again, I took Norm's advice. I still wasn't tired, and I still couldn't relax. I kept thinking about Grace and Tommy and Amelia, and I had no idea how to make all of it stop. These three people, two of which I thought I'd known better than anyone else, all seemed to share the same secret, and it made me feel like an outsider.
Apparently, Norm was just as insightful as Mo'at, because within minutes of me laying in that hammock, despite me not being able to blank out my mind, I fell asleep again for the first time in a day.
