It ain't easy
Characters: Zach and Neville Summary: Neville goes in for a checkup
Zach walked down the short hallway towards the treatment rooms off the Urgent ward when the mediwitch informed him that Neville had arrived and was waiting for him. After a quick conversation with Hawkins, during which he informed the other Healer that he was to keep checking with Maternity in case Debi was brought in, Zach was able to focus a little better.
He thought he heard Hawkins mutter about not harassing them the way Zach felt the need to, but he dismissed it. Hawkins would check - maybe not as often as Zach himself did - but he'd do it. He was nearly as excited about Junior's impending arrival. Then again, he mused, that might just have more to do with Zach stopping his incessant pacing than anything else.
He knocked once before entering the room, then pushed the door open and greeted Neville with a smile. That smile was gone a second later when he took in his patient.
"Christ, Neville, you look like hell," he said by way of greeting.
