The day was still early, the sun just barely having made its way above the horizon, and yet Alyssa had been up since yesterday. Nights were not her favorite, it always threw her out of wack, but she liked her job enough that it didn't matter. Even still, it was strange to be making her way to the garden she favored at the end of a long day when everyone else was still waking.

With a long suffering sigh, she plopped on a bench and lent her head against the back. Her hair trailed over the bench, crimped and curled from being up in a tight bun for too long, and catching glints of sunlight. She soaked in the sounds of the garden and the warmth of the sun on her face while trying to stay awake. She had to reset her schedule for days next week, a past time that was not among her favorites, but really she just wanted to fall asleep right here.

She pushed herself up off the bench just as she would have fallen asleep, shaking her head with vigor and blinking quickly a few times. "Maybe I should have gotten some coffee first," she muttered to herself as she started to walk around the pond, intent on staying awake.

Thankfully, the night shift hadn’t been an especially tiring one this time. Of course, Kai had a bit of an unfair advantage in that regard - his body had literally been made for healing - but still, everyone knew that signing up for a career with St. Mungo’s meant agreeing to sleepless evenings, an erratic social life at best, and a very strange sense of the passage of time indeed. Nights on emergency duty were by far the worst, taking both the most emotional and physical toll on mind and body, but he’d been lucky to have been scheduled for the Janus Thickey Ward for long term spell damage rather than urgent cases for the evening. He’d spent the shift performing gradual healing processes, slow and steady, since where long term injuries were concerned the healing process involved was often more drawn out and gentle to avoid sudden shocks.

Despite the fact that he wasn’t as tired as he could’ve been, or had been in the past, the sun still felt unusually bright as he started on his way home - or maybe it was just the fact that he hadn’t rested his eyes for the last several hours and they were starting to hurt a little bit as a result - and, wryly, he remembered an old Muggle belief that his mother was particularly fond of mentioning whenever he was home, that looking at greenery was meant to help with eyestrain.

Well, the pixie-inhabited garden that was renowned amongst the wizarding community of London wasn’t much of a detour from his apartment complex anyway, serene and peaceful as he liked for his surroundings to be, and so he decided to stop by, hands in the pockets of the lurid green Healer’s robes that he still hadn’t bothered changing out of at the end of his shift. Flowers had a habit of making him slightly homesick in a way that he rarely ever felt - his home in Japan was renowned for its blooms - but it was a bittersweet kind of feeling, and he still found himself smiling as he wandered the pretty hedgerows towards the central pond, pausing every now and then to admire the occasional outstanding wildflower.

The place was all but deserted unless one counted the pixies, but even they seemed a bit sleepy and lethargic at this hour. He tilted his head slightly to the side, a mild gesture of his curiosity, when he finally noticed the other person who was there, apparently pacing up a storm. He thought he recognised her, probably from the hospital - it was a big place, but still, it was hard not to have some idea of who frequented the facility after a few years.

“Good morning,” he greeted quietly, politely, pitching his voice so that it was just loud enough to be heard, but hopefully not startling. “St. Mungo’s, right? Night shift too?”

While not entirely unexpected (she was in a park after all), the presence of words still shocked her in the early morning quiet. Even still, the mention of St. Mungo's was enough to click a few pieces together before she even turned her head to look. It seemed she was not the only one who'd thought to visit the park.

"Hah, yeah. How could you tell?" She asked with a tired smile while she turned completely to face him.

He did look a little familiar, though not someone that she saw regularly enough to know the name of. Either way, he seemed friendly enough and might help distract her enough to wake up a little.

Kai’s expression immediately became slightly apologetic as he noted that the woman seemed slightly alarmed by his presence despite his efforts to not startle her - of course, that made sense, since it was so early in the morning and there was nobody else around. As polite as he had been raised to be, Kai was acutely aware of when people seemed uncomfortable or out of sorts, but it looked like despite her initial surprise, the other healer didn’t seem to be too upset or distressed, and so he figured that things were probably alright.

“I figured St. Mungo’s because I’ve seen you around the place a few times before,” he informed her truthfully in answer to her question, shrugging lightly and plucking lightly at the work robes that he was still wearing, “and there aren’t that many of us that faces don’t become familiar after a while, although I don’t believe we’ve actually met.” Kai paused to stifle the beginnings of a slight yawn with the back of his hand, before adding, “As for the night shift part, I was just working one as well. Besides, you seem a little…tired. Most people just head straight home and fall asleep when they clock off after an evening.”
