I have become so very good at not sleeping. It's necessity, I suppose. I have a lot of work to do. I have an excellent team running Frost Enterprises, but it still requires a lot of my attention. The school comes before even that. The students come first.

So I rarely sleep for more than a bare handful of hours a night, if that. As a telepath, I've developed my own meditation techniques for suppressing fatigue. Thankfully, I'm far too beautiful to require beauty sleep. I think it may be my tertiary mutation.

I don't need much sleep, and I can't afford much sleep.

And I never get much sleep.

Ever since what happened at the Academy, I've found I don't want to sleep. Perhaps because I slept for months thereafter. Maybe I did all my sleeping at once?

The psionic landscape changes when everyone is sleeping, and at night I can feel the beats shifting all around me. I'm almost never the only one still awake in the small hours, but I enjoy being one of the few. I enjoy being in a position to meet them when they come, whoever they may be.

There's always someone coming. The world is a dangerous place.

What happened last night has happened before, and it will happen again. Perhaps not here, but somewhere.

I'll get my sleep when the danger passes.

I was thinking something like that. Don't go without sleep too long, though (she said, dodging the bullet of hypocrisy). I'm sure it'll happen again. The jackboots and the black masks, neither of them sleep much either. They'll always be coming around to someone's house.

What's the quote I want? You can sleep when you're dead, I think.

But, since I'd much prefer to see you live for a very long time (and look fabulous while you do it), consider a little sleep. Or at least let me nip up for a cup of tea with you sometime for some relaxation. I think I could use it, too.
