The sound of a ringing went off in the room causing Esme to wake up and push the sheets from the bed. She quickly dressed in some work out clothes then headed out into the other room. The apartment mostly was two bedrooms with a shared bathroom, a kitchen, and a living area. She went into the kitchen grabbing an apple. Then she turned to walked to the door pausing a moment to look at the closed door. It was Vanessa's room and not somewhere she had been in a while. She used to sleep in there most nights. Not since things had started going bad. Esme could tap into her link and see if she was awake but decided against it. One of the things that had been causing problems for them was that they never had a moment to themselves. They were still learning how to control their ability and couldn't always turn it off. Esme used to get so frustrated that it felt like she couldn't have a moment to herself.
She took a bite of the apple and then walked into the hallway. They lived in a Aceso-tech building that housed many of the employees working on the project. Aceso-tech felt it best to keep the two of them close. In fact it was only the upper levels that were used for housing the basements and first ten floors were labs and offices. Esme walked over to the elevator and hit a couple buttons causing a breathalyzer come out of the wall. “Pathogen analyst required.” The computer chimed. Esme leaned over and blew on the device. A moment later it said, “Negative for pathogens.” The doors opened and Esme stepped in hitting the button that took her to the gym floor finishing her apple along the way.
When she arrived there weren't a lot of people there just a few early risers like her with it being six in the morning. She walked past all the traditional equipment and headed to the obstacle course. Just running on a treadmill or swimming laps bored Esme. Exercising was a daily part of her routine and had been her entire life. The enforcement academy had the recruits exercise twice a day and it usually was more than just running a couple miles. After stretching a little she ran towards the course the first obstacle being rope swing across a water pit. She cleared the pit and found herself climbing up a rope ladder.
