Waking up from a disturbing dream with a jerk that brings you to a sitting position is actually rather rare. It's disorienting, and rather an effort to go from horizontal to perpendicular the instant you wake from a deep sleep, and thus, does not happen nearly as frequently as the visual media would have you believe.

That said... the instant Shelley wakes, she sits bolt upright in bed, trembling.

She'd been dreaming- just dreaming, thank god, but- She shoves the covers off her legs with a shudder, feeling the cold air rush over her slightly damp skin gratefully.

Wrong. That was- she didn't- Small hands smooth tangled hair back from her face, then rest over her eyes. Just a dream. A stupid... could have been caused by anything.

It felt...

Just a dream.

Just a dream.

Rousing with a start, Elan frowned in chagrin. One always woke before the good parts it seemed. Well, there was little that could be done about it. Rising from the bed, Elan walked over and opened the door from his study.
Shuffling down the hall, he made for the bathroom for his morning shower. He almost never started his day any other way.

Shutting the door, he undressed and prepared a towel from the cabinet. Nothing the few left, he made a mental note to make sure a few were done in the next laundry load. It struck him as odd that this occurred to him. Such a thought would never have crossed his mind previously.

After a moment, the door opened slightly. Glancing around the edge, Elan saw the fairly startled redhead. It was rather strange for them to both wake at once unless... the possibility of a shared dream, given his inability to shield his own dreams had occurred to him, and that now seemed to be evident. How very interesting. No wonder she was so shaken... Apparently fortune favored his cause for once.

"My apologies. Our schedules do not usually synchronize in such a manner."

Elan shrugged slightly, and made a rather flippant comment as if to diffuse her intensity.

"Well, I had not had a reason to do so before so it necessarily slipped my mind."

A pause, and a slight inquiry.

"Is something the matter?"

Smiling, Elan chortled happily to himself. That was very interesting, indeed. Retreating back into the bathroom, he turned on the water, and as an afterthought locked the door.

Why upset her?

He waited for a moment for the water to warm. A cold shower would spoil the mood.
