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
