A snort left Kip's mouth, the sound slightly muffled against the mattress of his bed. He groaned, shifted and cracked his eyes open, blearily staring at the white colour of his sheets. He closed his mouth, and groaned in protest again, wishing he could block out the noises indicating it was time to get up and start the day.

"Too… early" he complained to himself, curling momentarily back under the blankets. His feet twitched and in his head, Kip knew he should get up. His body, however desired a few more hours of rest. The body, as always, won out and it didn't take long before Kip was once again drifting off to sleep.

He jerked awake only moments later… or perhaps ten minutes later. He wasn't sure. Though Kip knew by the booming of his alarm that he was well overdue to get up and leave. He looked at the time.

"Shit"

With a start, Kip jumped out of bed, flinging the blankets aside as he did. They joined the pile of clothing on the ground, among which his uniform was stored… somewhere.

"Shit.. Shit…" Kip groaned again, flinging off his pyjama shirt and kneeling down to quickly search the pile of discarded clothing for his uniform. He found the pants, what he assumed to be a fresh pair of underwear and socks… "Where is the shirt?"

Kip kicked aside more piles of clothing as he simultaneously started to change into his uniform. He had a foot in the leg when he found the top of his uniform and rather than waste time changing in his room, Kip instead, with clothes on his arms and hopping on one foot to fully pull his pants on, left towards the control room.

He arrived almost dressed. There was a sock trailing behind him and his shirt was only attached by one arm. It was also inside-out. Kip glanced around, attempting to slink in without being noticed as he righted his shirt.

"I'm on time! I'm perfectly on time" he announced once the shirt was on… only then realising that he had forgotten his shoes. "...shit."

A quick retreat was made, with Kip racing through the corridors, skidding in his socks as he rounded the corners. One shoe was beneath the bed, the other was hidden beneath a poster of Goldmine. Kip grabbed both and pushed the poster carefully beneath the bed, he didn't want anyone to know he was deeply obsessed with Lucas's older brothers.

He made it to the control room again in record time, jumping on one foot as he pulled his shoe on. Glancing around, Kip hopped over towards Enzo. "I'm not late, am I? Alveraz isn't here yet, is he?" Kip looked down at Sunhi, noting the slightly red impression of floor on her face. Had she fallen again?

"Maybe you could do your computer beep Boop thing to make the time go back so I'm not late anymore." Kip asked Sunhi, unaware of her and Enzo's previous encounter.
