Arrivals  
Faith groaned quietly as the bus slid into one of many stations in Denver. The sky was tinged a light pinkish-orange and she blinked heavy-lidded eyes.

She picked her duffle bag up while the bus came to a halt and the driver opened the doors. The few passengers riding with her sleepily gathered their things and they all filed out and down the steps, mindless and automated.

Faith looked around, her eyes taking in the bustling city. It was dirty and noisy even at this hour, and the buildings rose up around her. She felt comfortable. This could be a good place to get lost, and stay lost. There were too many people and most of them didn't give a rat's ass about each other. No one would even notice her.

She slung the duffle over her shoulder and asked directions to the nearest, cheapest hotel. The surly attendant rattled off a name and street, and she flipped him off cheerily when he sneered at her. *I think I'm gonna like it here,* she thought in amusement.

It only took her a few minutes to find the hotel, and she paid in cash and went to her room. It was nicer than the last place. She might not mind staying here for a while, until she figured out what the hell she was going to do.

Faith stripped quickly, threw back the covers and slid into bed, sighing in pleasure as the cool cotton sheets closed in around her. The quilt was wrapped around her up to her chin, and she stayed awake for only a few moments. Plans for the day ahead of her swam through her mind while she fell blissfully into sleep.
