Shadows and Sickness

Everyone was too busy taking care of a sick persona to notice the person in the shadows, waiting to make the perfect appearance.


6. Awake

Patton’s POV

It has been almost two days since we found Virgil. According to Logan his fever is getting worse. And him not waking up isn’t helping anything either.

I looked up as Roman walked in the door.

“Still asleep?” He said like it was a question. I nodded and looked at Virge again. "You still need to take care of yourself too, you know." He stated after a minute.

Not with Virgil in the condition he is. "But Virgil is-"

"staying where he is. You've been watching him for almost two full days. You've hardly eaten and you've got little to no sleep." He looked at me sternly. well I can't sleep when I'm worrying about Virge.

"Just a couple more hours," I replied. Maybe in a couple hours he'll forget about this conversation.

"Fine, but for one hour," Roman stated walking out of the door. I sighed sitting down.

I was about to doze off when I saw him. Virgil sat up suddenly. At first he looked frightened, the confused. But I was happy he was awake.

"Your awake," I said jumping up and down. He jumped a little and turned his head towards me. After a minute he nodded his head. I settled down and hugged him, glad to know that he's a least a little bit okay. He flinched and I back away. I forgot, he wasn't used to physical contact. I sat down on the chair.

"How long was I asleep?"He finally asked. His voice was quiet and it sounded scratchy.

"Two days. Logan says you have a fever. You also need to eat and drink something and get lots of sleep so you can get better," I updated him. remembering the water I turned around and handed him the water.

He mumbled a thanks, taking the glass and drinking a little bit.

"What do you want to eat?" Virgil set the glass in his lap, holding it carefully as to not spill it.

"I'm not very hungry," He whispered. I looked at him sternly and raised by eyebrow.

"Now, kiddo. I don't believe that for one second. You have been asleep for two days. All that while not eating and not to mention that I don't know the last time you've eaten before that and in order to take care of yourself and get better than you need to at least eat something. Even if it's something small at first then go from there. How about I get you a little bit of yogurt and maybe some toast. Just because that will be easy on your stomach for now. Then maybe later I'll make you some soup." I lectured him.

He seemed shocked at what I said, probably because he wasn't used to being 'instructed' on how to take care of himself when he's sick. I don't think he's really been 'sick' before.

"Do you want me to get you some yogurt?" I asked him after a minute of him still not replying.

"I don't know, I'm just not that hungry," He asked me. "Besides, when was the last time you've eaten or slept?" He turned the question on me? I thought for a minute.

I was saved by the bell- or more like the door opening. Roman walked in. "It's been an ho- oh hey Virgil you're awake." Virgil slowly nodded, then he looked down in his lap.

"Thanks for the water," He said quietly handing me the glass. I nodded, took it from him and set it on his nightstand.

"I'm just tired," Virgil said closing his eyes and laying down.

"How can you still be tired? You've been asleep for two days," Roman slightly shook his head.

I stared at Roman. "Roman," He looked at me, "shut up."

"but" He sighed clearly realizing he's been defeated. I looked at Virgil, who looked like he was asleep. He looks so peaceful.

"I love my dark strange son," I whispered smiling. walking out of Virge's room, Roman followed.

"Why do you keep quoting things from the videos?" He asked after I closed the door.

I shrugged, smiling I replied with. "But I like to, besides a lot of other people do to. So why can't I?" I walked to the kitchen to get some yogurt and toast for when Virgil woke up again. With him being sick he needs all the rest he can get.
