Peyton Winslow ARNP
Do you believe in ghosts?

~/~ Mood: Observant ~/~ Where: Day Room ~/~ Wearing: First Day of Work ~/~ With: Everyone in the day room~/~


The sun shone in through the blinds to fall on the medium brown hair that covered the closed eyelids of a slumbering twenty-six year old male. He gave a small groan and turned over in his bed to escape the light, and then with a sigh, opened his eyes. Grabbing his phone, he checked the time and then the silence of his bedroom was broken by a long string of swears. Throwing the covers off and rushing to the bathroom, the sound of running water could be heard. As were the continued swears. "Way to go Peyton, you're already late for your first day of work. s**t, why didn't my alarm go off?"

Peyton Winslow, for that was the young man's name, berated himself for several more minutes while he took one of the quickest showers he'd had in quite a while. He still didn't know why his alarm hadn't gone off, but that was a mystery for later. Right now he had to finish getting showered so he could get dressed. Turning off the water, Peyton toweled his hair dry while he looked through the clean clothes in his room. "Looks like I need to do laundry again." he thought to himself after choosing his outfit. Luckily since he was an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner, or ARNP for short, allowed him to get away with not having to wear a uniform for work. Peyton could if he wanted, but he didn't have to.

Once he was dressed, he grabbed his stethoscope, his bag, his wallet, and his keys. With his hair still slightly damp, he locked his door before rushing down to his truck. Starting it up, he backed out of his parking spot and headed off to work. Luckily, it was that long of a drive to get there, which was one of the reason he'd leased an apartment in the specific building he was in.

====Time Skip====

Peyton pulled up to the gates of Crooked View Mental Hospital and spoke with the guard on duty. After explaining that Peyton had just been hired and once the guard confirmed it, he drove through the gates and down the drive, until he got to the main building. Parking his truck, Peyton made sure he had all his stuff and then locked his doors. Looking up at the building with a sigh, he walked through the front doors. The receptionist was a different one than had been there when he'd come in for his interview. She gave him a smile and directed him to the director's office, who then spent some time explaining to Peyton what his duties would be. After that he was given his badge and his clearance codes and was ushered out of the office.

"So now what? The patients have already been given their meds, so now I guess I just wait until the first activity starts. Guess I could always walk around." Deciding to do that, Peyton wandered the hallways, nodding to the other employees until he came to the day room. Seeing several employees with some of the patients, he decided to observe how the patients interacted with the employees, so he could get a feel for how he should act. This way he knew what might set off the patients or not.


Because they're real. I know. I've seen them.

                                          Avery was walking out of the room in which he considered his prison. He was in a mental hospital again, he really did not see the point. You can not make someone who does not want to change give and change. But he was here so he might as well give it a try, to at least fake it. He knew how to work every other hospital he had ever been sent too why should this one be any different then all the rest? Slowly he went to take his medication, they scanned his wrist band and then asked his birthday "September Tenth" then he swallowed the pills with a griminess on his face.

                                          Quickly wondering off to anywhere but the room where people were eating after all that was not where he wanted to be. He ran into someone who had to be a nurse. "********" he swore, the nurse was hot sure but he might make Avery eat and that was the last thing that Avery wanted. He planned on fighting the entire time, there was no way he was giving in, after all the stupid feeding tube he had had in the other hospital had made him gain some weight but every pound was like a hundred in his eyes.

                                          Looking away from the person he had walked into he realized he had found the day room, he stood up shakily. He was still very weak from not eating, he swayed on his feet and suddenly grabbed onto Peyton's shirt as he started to feel light headed. He really should eat something but he didn't want to gain the weight.

Mood: Content Where: Outdoors With: Neal Wearing: Morning~


                                          This time it was Tai's turn to shrug. Neal had a point, but sometimes it was fun to mess with the nurses. Besides, it wasn't fun making people's jobs easy. Why bother let them sit around all day, watching the tv in the day room, getting fat? The patients were suffering, so sometimes it was fun letting the employees suffer, too.

                                          Shaking the thought from his head, he looked over at Neal. "Having normal people in here is weird. And the fact that they're nurses and doctors and s**t just irks me." He felt like he needed someone that knew what he was going through. Only then would someone get it, and know how to treat him. Instead, they just gave out pills and hoped for the best. Whatever. The pills made him feel nice, so it wasn't like he could really complain about that. Just as long as they didn't kill him.

                                          Tai sighed quietly and looked back up at the darkening sky. Sitting here with someone that was actually quiet was nice. He'd have to talk to Neal more often. He read the next note and hummed quietly. "Not sure what there is to talk about. It's pretty boring around here." Another hum, and he pursed his lips. "What's your favorite food?"

      Shannon smirked at Antony's offer. It was tempting. Why not go out with a co-worker and do something fun? He was all open for fun, after all. "I might just have to take you up on that one day." He replied. He was all prepared to just relax when more and more patients came into the day room. It was a good an yet bad thing for him. He was going to have to find a new place to have his chill time, that was the bad thing. The good part was he could give out some of his candy supply. His attention redirected to the little boy with the dog and he smiled. He chuckled a bit at how adorable the kid was, before putting a playful mock serious look as if to say "hush" sort of look on his face. "Of course, little man~" His face softened and he tossed the boy the package of candy.

      Then things started to get weird... The boy that was crying on the couch, took the remote off the table and started to flip the channels until he reached a channel that had porn on it. Oh boy... That wasn't good. No one even was supposed to know about those channels... Stupid cable company. He told them to only put the paper-view channels on the TV where only he had access too... The old day room that was roped off for really no reason at all besides that... Oops. He needed to get out of there before they started to realize it was his fault. With all the chaos of trying to get Kurt to change the channel, he stood up and started to make his escape. He needed to get out of there fast... But to where? He took hold of his cart and started to walk out of the day room with no destination in mind.

Kael knew that Skyler enjoyed the hug, it was pretty easy to tell from his very upbeat expression. In all truth Kael didn't want to break the hug either but seeing as the bag of candy was now behind Skyler he had to so he could give Skyler his present. Kael reluctantly ended up breaking the hug, then presented the candy to Skyler. "Here you are. Sour patch kids! I wasn't sure what you wanted to at first I asked for gummy bears and a knife, but my mother thought I was going to cut someone, so she just got me these." Kael noticed the mention of the knife may have made Skyler a little uneasy, so he began to explain the knife. "Oh the shiv was for you just in case someone tried to rape you in the showers... Or you needed to open something... You get the idea..." Kael Felt really odd, with a moment of complete awkwardness Kael took advantage of that moment to kiss Skyler's forhead. He didn't really have a reason for doing so, but he thought it may have made him feel a little less uncomfortable.

Peyton hadn't realized that Avery had walked towards him until he fell against him. Instinctively grabbing the young man to keep him from falling, Peyton looked down at Avery. He was really cute and without realizing it, Peyton flashed a smile at Avery. "Whoa! Slow down there, Speedy. Might hurt yourself if you keep that up." Peyton then switched into nursing mode. He could tell that Avery was stumbling because of lack of eating. He'd seen something like this before when he was finishing up his internship for his Master's Degree. A patient had been starving themselves because they thought if they ate anything they'd gain serious weight. Anorexia was what the disorder was called and Peyton had disliked seeing the young patient suffer so much.

Peyton could tell the young man he was holding onto was another one with anorexia, because he could feel how skinny Avery was through his shirt sleeves. He didn't want to set off Avery by telling him he needed to eat, but maybe he could gradually work on getting Avery to understand why he needed to eat. "Great, Peyton, you've already got your first patient to take care of. Hell, he even fell into your arms. Guess it's time to try to be his knight in shining armor." Still holding onto Avery, Peyton looked around the day room. Noticing the dark-skinned nurse dealing a patient arguing over the TV remote and another employee trying to ease their way out of the room, Peyton decided that if he took Avery with him, no one would mind.

"So, Speedy, how about we burn off some of that extra energy and go for a walk? I'm new here, so you could show me around and tell me where everything is." That was a half-truth, since Peyton had been shown around by the Director when he'd come for his interview, but Avery didn't know that. And if Avery consented to going for a walk, it'd give Peyton time to try to come up with a plan for how to explain to Avery that even though he didn't want to eat that he needed to. If Avery went too much longer without eating, it'd end up causing even more problems. And if there was one thing Peyton hated, it was failing to help a patient of his.

Neal was getting tired but he didn't feel like going into the day room or going into a normal empty room to sleep in. He even thought about cuddling with Tai but fought against it. Neal took out his notepad again ' I think it's ok that they were here, maybe just a little bit less would be nice' he wrote. He yawned and then lay down ' but I think I can understand' he added. Neal had to think about it, he didn't really have a 'favourite' food pre-say he didn't normally enjoy eating unless he is high. He then shrugged ' I don't really have one; what ever tastes good I eat really' he said.

Neal yawned again and curled in a ball as he shifted to his side. He could never stay on his back for long, just a habit. Neal did feel a small rumble in his stomach, maybe going inside was a good idea. Neal brushed the idea off, he wasn't too hungry to just have something and not to mention everyone must have been in their or just finishing. He sighed a little ' a weird question, but how do you think or wish you die?' he wrote. Neal could hear the chuckles mix between a males and a female's which meant normally he would see two of them soon.
