Kel watched Demetreus fumble through his work.

"He looked really tired. Damn, he's driven." Kel muttered. Kel studied for about an hour. He looked at his watch: 8:12pm.

Kel stood up and walked over to the bathroom. He glanced over the Starbucks' work station to see everything clean. He was surprised.

Kel entered the bathroom. Completed his business, washed his hands, and left the bathroom. He opened the door and saw Demetreus walk over with a shaky box in his hand. Kel leaned against the wall in between the door and watched Demetreus for a few moments.

"I don't understand..." He muttered to himself.

Demetreus leaned over and started to unpack the box. Kel watched intensively. Demetreus placed each bottle in their proper place. Kel decided to walk up behind him. 

"Are you okay?" Kel said to Demetreus. Kel startled Demetreus as he dropped the bottle in his hands.

"SH*T!" Demetreus said, as the bottle shattered across the floor. He turned to Kel, and said, "I'm mean SHOOT! Sorry, I didn't mean to curse in front of you."

"I'm sorry, I didn't mean to scare you." Kel said. 

"I zoned out, I wasn't even paying attention. I'm sorry. I'm usually a lot bubbly then this."

"Yeah, I know." Kel chuckled.

Kel placed his hand on Demetreus' lower back.  Kel said, "I think you should sit down... you look a little dehydrated." 

"I feel a little naus..." Demetreus said as he lost his balance.

Kel applied pressure on his lower back to keep him standing straight. Kel felt his dip in his lower back

Kel said, "You should sit down, can I grab you, so I can bring you over to a seat?"

Demetreus said, "I'm okay... I gotta finish my work."

Kel said, "I'm almost a nurse... at least drink some water."

Kel quickly ran over and got a chair, and then placed it underneath Demetreus.

Kel responded, "sit." As Kel leaned Demetreus in the chair.

"I'm sorry... I am..." Said Demetreus, as Kel passed him an water bottle.

"Its okay... you will be fine." Kel said.

The End
