Sensuous.

He paused, his eyes closed, then squinting against the golden beams which cast their way through the dawns usual gloom, warming the blankets, pillows, and exposed feet of rufus K. Shiles.

His brain scrambled to affirm that he had chosen the correct word. Rapidly he crossed out beautiful, though that matched, glorious, though also fitting, and frustrating, which seemed a complete mistake. Then, another pause, and a thin grin appeared.

Sensuous.

He felt warmth begin to permeate his blanket and heat his back, melting inward till his soul felt warm and another word permeated his conciousness.

Red.

He smiled again, and glanced at the milk crates stacked next to his bed, loaded with books, the ceiling surface housing a digital alarm clock, whose dashes and dots gave a figure of 7:15. Rufus extended his hand into the golden beams, releasing it from the pocket his blanket had made around him, and studying its shadow as it floated across to the clock and pulled the switch which controlled the alarm toward him.

The alarm was piercing white. Shrill and crude. It would shatter the morning and Rufus had already surpassed his need of it thanks to the gold.

His hand returned to him and formed a triangle with the blankets, revealing a quarter of his form to the gold, sliding the rest so that it dangled over the edge of the bed.

Sensuous, he thought.
