Drabble: Alcohol

Title: Alcohol
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Owen.
Rating: PG
Written For: Challenge 477: Strong at tw100.
Spoilers: Fragments.
Summary: Katie’s death has driven Owen to seek oblivion in the bottle.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.





Owen had always enjoyed a beer, and sometimes a shot or two of something stronger, but as a doctor he knew the downsides of alcohol and rarely drank heavily. As with many things, drinking was fine in moderation, but overindulging was a bad idea. Besides, he didn’t need to get drunk to feel like he was having a good time.


Then he’d lost Katie and everything had changed. Alcohol had become his crutch; strong drink the only thing that put the slightest dent in the agony of his grief. He longed to crawl into the bottle and never come out.



The End









Comments

Thankfully Torchwood pulled him out of it.

great drabble
Eventually.

Thank you.

Funny how we turn to the one thing that can't help. Alcohol only makes things worse.

Poor Owen is seeking oblivion. People in pain often don't do what's best for themselves.

Thank you.
