The time it takes to fall

Post by Casey Johnson on Wed Jun 26, 2013 3:28 pm

"Finally on a break..." The blonde muttered to himself as he headed outside, leaning against a wall in the staff parking lot area of the hospital. He liked being a doctor, but that didn't mean he liked the long hours he often got stuck with.
Sighing, Casey pulled a pack of cigarettes out of his pocket, having collected it from his locker before he'd headed outside. He looked around, making sure he was alone before lighting one and putting it in his mouth.

It was a recent habit, thanks to his almost constant work shifts; the young doctor having decided it was better than taking some sort of medication just to relax. Doing that wouldn't exactly look good if other doctors or patients saw him taking them. This was easier to hide, assuming he got to stay on break long enough for the smell of smoke to fade.

Once he was done Casey stayed there a few minutes longer before moving to head back inside, blinking to clear the sudden blurring of his vision.

"I really need to go home and sleep..." He sighed as he went back in to continue working.

~~~

By the time Casey finally finished working and got home, he was exhausted. He needed food too though, so he went and made something simple first. After eating, he went to the couch in his living room instead of going to bed, barely making it there before he passed out, fast asleep on the couch; the blonde completely forgetting he'd arranged to meet up with a friend for lunch later that day.

Adam smiled as he walked up to his friend's house, he had been looking forward to this lunch with Casey. With the hectic hours he had to spent at the clinic, he didn't get to see friends often.

Having only gotten home early that morning, Casey was still fast asleep on his couch when Adam showed up. He shifted slightly before jumping awake when he heard a knock on his door, causing him to almost fall off the couch.

He sat up, waiting a few seconds to wake up properly before going over to the door, forgetting he was even still wearing the clothes he'd had on at work.

"Oh... hey Adam." Casey said after opening the door, yawning.

"Hey Casey." Adam said with a smile before looking carefully at his friend, "Their running you ragged again huh?"

Casey frowned, slowly nodding. "I've only been home a few hours. They seem to think that because I'm new they can give me as many hours as they can get away with."

Adam shook his head, "There's a reason I decided to open a clinic instead of dealing with them..."

"I know, I know..." Casey sighed, moving to let him in. "...it helps if I change out of my work clothes yeah?" He went into his bedroom after closing the front door, coming back out a few minutes later wearing clean clothes.

"You look like they'll be working you to death soon..." Adam said with a soft sigh to his friend.

"I'm fine, just a little tired..." Casey said, yawning as he sat down on his couch.

"Yeah, I'm fine." Casey said, brushing a hand through his hair as he got up off the couch. "Let's just go."

Adam gave a small nod and got up as well.

Casey yawned as he headed for the door, blinking to clear his vision again. He paused with a hand on the door, as if he was lost in thought.

"My friend I think you should sit down, you don't look like you feel too well..." Adam said softly as he watched his longtime friend.

"I-I'm fine." Casey said, though he turned around and sat down like Adam suggested anyway. He leaned against the wall beside the door, sliding down to sit on the floor, knees against his chest.

Adam knelt by his friend, "You need to rest Casey... And to tell those jerks to stop working you to death, you shouldn't have to be over worked because they don't want to work."

"The problem is they do go to work, they just don't do half the stuff they're meant to." Casey sighed, hanging his head. "And someone has to look after the people..."

"You could always come to work for the clinic you know..." Adam said softly, "The pay isn't as great, but the hours are much better..."

"What? You mean work for you?" Casey asked, not really bothering to think about it properly.

"You...you really think so?" Casey mumbled tiredly, wrapping his arms around himself.
