Kevin stirred. His leg twitched, and he rolled about happily in his sleep as the morning sun fell through the window and warmed the couch he slept on. It was one of those things he liked about Apricot Bay: sunlight. Lots of sunlight.

It'd been a busy three days since he stepped off the trains with Seb and Penny by his side. Apricot Bay was such a strange new place for all of them. The people here were so friendly and inviting, the trees smelled like fresh apricots, and after the long winter in The City, Kevin was glad he didn't have to worry about either of them going missing again. Oh, and the diner down by the train station with the tuna bar? That was pretty cool too.

Kevin could only dream about where they'd all go next. For now, though, he slept peacefully, tongue hanging out of his mouth, as he basked in the spring sun like he'd always wanted to.
