AN: Title from the fabulous Crash Test Dummies
As Jack lay alone in the dark, the Hub came alive around him.
The ghosts who lived in the walls appeared from nowhere, their faces and silhouettes dancing in the shadows.
Their voices came to him on the drafts that floated through the tunnels; their expired breaths through the drone and whine of the computers.
A century of his life was contained in the cold hard stone; a harsh tomb for his memories.
As a familiar warm body slipped into bed next to him the ghosts retreated once more and Jack lost himself in the steady heartbeat of the living.
