Running Man

Fuse Fitness 
can be either mid-morning or early evening, replier's choice

Wallace had signed up for a membership here over a year ago and had used it maybe three times before he'd dropped off the face of the earth. He, in fact, had met Asha here--ignoring their first meeting, which he liked to pretend didn't exist--and at that point in time everything had seemed pretty normal. Life had taken a decided turn after that, and he hadn't really made it back--and that was what he chose to blame it on, instead of the inherent laziness of a couch cat.

So it was sorta-ish on the way home from work, so he sometimes came in before his shift or after his shift, depending. Never staying out too late, but not allowing himself to be chased back home simply because the sun had set. Steadily, slowly and surely, he was un-sucking himself as a person.

And sure, maybe he could have gone to the Gym in Cedar creek, where his kind could do whatever without worry. And maybe someday that would be him. But not today. The idea of any place were-exclusive still made his chest ache. So Fuse Fitness it was.

He'd been coming enough now that he wasn't absolutely dying on the treadmill, which was a neat realization. He could actually run for a while, and it was rather pleasing once he got into it. He still felt a little bit awkward for anything else, and the weight machines weren't going to help him a ton, so elliptical and treadmill and biking... Cardio life meant that when he did get home tonight he'd at least sleep incredibly well.

So it was and all was well, until he picked up his plastic water bottle while running, it slipped, hit the treadmill, and got launched backwards from there.

Find such a nice gym had been a surprise, Elis hadn't really expected much in the way of high end convenience. Not that he was complaining, he preferred small towns of large cities, especially ones that had such picturesque nature. He wasn't spending much time out in the nature though seeing as he was wheelchair bound. It was the wheelchair that had brought him to the gym. Today was suppose to be his first physical therapy session.
Everything had been going well, the gym was nice and clean, one of the workers had even been nice enough to help push him towards the office. But that all ended when they were passing the treadmills. A bottle of water was launched into the air, spraying it's contents on the floor, the worker, and all over Elis. To top it all off the bottle proceed to land on his lap, hitting the wheelchairs side and sending what water remained all over his lap and leg cask.

Wallace, being Wallace, had cursed under his breath when he'd dropped the bottle in the first place. And Wallace, being Wallace, was deeply horrified when it got distinctly worse in the next split second. He stumbled in his run, reaching for the button to slap the machine off, but botched it the first time and had to side-step onto the side in an effort to not hit the treadmill face first and turn into a raging tiger. Thankfully this was not the outcome as he found solid footing and turned, the treadmill still runining, as he looked at the man he'd drenched.

The. Wheelchair bound. Man... he'd drenched.

"Shit, I'm sorry, are you okay!?" he asked, still slightly tripped up as he came over to investigate, eyes decidedly violet and his heart up in his throat. Assaulting someone with a water bottle! Really?!

The shock of the cold water was just sinking in when owner of the water bottle came towards him clearly concerned. Elis blinked a few times, and water dripped down his neck. He regretted wearing a white shirt now, although his embarrassment was no where near the leave of discomfort at being soaked. Still it had clearly been an accident and he wasn't at all upset at the man. "I'm alright, just a little soaked."
He gave the stranger a smile hoping to put him at ease, although the moment was somewhat ruined as Elis shivered. The worker had run off as soon as they got soaked which meant Elis couldn't just smile and wheel away, he had no idea where exactly the office was.
