a bathroom or shower
‘O.K.—shortly. Where’s the 'fresher?’ ‘Over there.’ It was not Dave’s idea of a refreshing chamber, but he managed to take a sketchy shower in spite of the slimy floor.
Mary Risling was up at her usual hour the next day. Long still slept. She ducked into her 'fresher, showered and massaged, and swallowed a grain of benzedrine surrogate to compensate for the short night.
I…went in and set my 'fresher for a needle shower and a hard massage.
‘You're tired, of course, but you'll feel better after an hour in the 'fresher.’ ‘Of course.’ She smiled her thanks and accepted his escorting arm to the living quarters. She stepped behind a door and a moment later he heard the soft rush of water in the shower stall.
She stopped in front of another of her cabin’s luxuries, one better than private 'fresher or sleeping silks or key lighting.
Sten’s quarters were also quite interesting. They consisted of two rooms—a combined bedroom/study decorated in soothing colors, and a 'fresher that included not only the usual facilities, but an elaborate Jacuzzi.
Trying to lift a shuttle on a high gee curve with a full bladder was likely to be uncomfortable, if not fatal. He sighed as he located the fresher and sprinted for it.
Sweat stained the fat man’s white linen suit, and a haze of smoke hung below the ceiling as the fresher system fought overstrain.
He stood, folded the paper and stuck it in his shirt pocket, then headed for the bathroom to wash his hands… He hummed softly while the fresher sprayed water and odorless disinfectant on his palms.
They'd been wrong, I thought contentedly, following Morgan into the fresher. About so many things.
She kept scrubbing. Barac had told her to clean up, and he was waiting for his turn in the fresher.
