Alex woke up and thought about the time and what time it might be.
There wasn’t a clock around so she moved to the edge of the bed. She put her feet on the floor and it felt like nylon and then she stood up.
She pressed the small button on her phone and the phone displayed ‘09:01’ and she thought ‘ok, 09:01.’
She walked into the bathroom and prepared psychologically to reach for her toothbrush by searching for it with her eyes. Her eyes did not see it. Alex felt confused. Alex walked out of the bathroom and to her bag and looked through it for her smaller bag of wash things. Except then she realised that she had seen the bag in the bathroom so she went into the bathroom and searched that instead. It wasn’t there. Then she remembered that she used it before she went to sleep. She remembered this very clearly.
