Gabriel opened his eyes, seeing the room through the blur that remained from his alcohol-induced slumber.
The grey light of dawn seeped into the room through the drapes at the window, showing the worn layer of dirt and misuse that had filled his life for years now.
He closed his eyes again and threw an arm over his face, as much to block out the memory of those years as the light that grew brighter with each passing second.
He groaned, a low rumble that rose up from his soul and pierced his heart.
As the light grew, he opened his eyes again and ran them around the room; wincing at the litter and dust that filled the small room.
Litter and dirt of a different kind had filled his life, his heart, his soul; much worse than that which covered every flat surface of the worn hotel room that he had called home for too many years now.
He forced himself to sit up and swing his feet off the bed to the floor. The motion brought forth a wave of nausea that had him swallowing repeatedly.
