The Secret to a Good Night's Sleep

I wrote this on a bus from Nagano to Tokyo, watching strangers asleep side by side. I thought, "What would the success rate be if you intentionally tried to fall asleep on people? How many would simply let you?"

I enjoyed playing with contrast in this story; what at first seems safe and warm in fact comes at a cost.
