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.


12. Exactly

Patton's POV

We watched movies until late into the night, but the whole time I couldn't stop thinking about Virgil. What's going on in his head? He is sick and yes I want him to get better, but he needs someone to help take care of him. I'm trying to help him; he might just be confused right now. Dayal especially doesn't help anything. Dayal can harm all of us, including Virgil.

"Penny for your thoughts Patton?" Thomas whispered. We are still watching movies. Logan fell asleep first, then Roman. Logan ended up reading after about one cartoon saying it was 'illogical and unrealistic' and that books are 'more interesting than just staring at a screen' I'm actually a bit surprised that Roman fell asleep; he must've been really tired.

"Patton?" Thomas broke me from my thoughts. I looked at him and smiled.

"What, sorry kiddo," I replied. He slightly smiled and slightly shook his head.

"I was just wondering what you were thinking about," Thomas whispered.

"Virgil," I mumbled back. Thomas nodded in understanding.

"Do you want to check on him?" Thomas asked me. "I can clean up here,"

"Are you sure you won't need my help?" I asked. I wanted to check on Virgil, but I didn't want to leave Thomas to do everything by himself.

"I'm sure, now go take care of Virgil," Thomas stood up. I nodded then sank down.

I went straight to Virgil's room and knocked on the door. "Virgil?" I waited. Hearing nothing I knocked again. "I'm going to open the door," I waited again. And again I heard nothing I opened his bedroom door.

I looked towards the bed and saw Dayal and Virgil. Virge was asleep, cuddled in Dayal's arms.

"Shh, you'll wake him up," Dayal smiled.

"What are you doing here? Why did you come back?" I asked him. He just chuckled.

"You don't know how it is being trapped in a place like that," He whispered. "Besides, if you want to get rid of me..." He paused and looked at Virgil.

I clenched my fists. "You know we can't get rid of Virge, he's an important part of Thomas."

He gently rubbed his fingers through Virgil's hair. "exactly"

Thomas' POV

I enjoyed the movie night we all had. Patton kept getting lost in thought though. I figured it was about Virgil. After Patton is my dad character. He just naturally takes care of everyone. I started cleaning up the spilled snacks. It was quiet in the house after Patton went to check on Virge.

I sighed and stopped in my tracks. I don't know what has been happening lately, but I haven't been feeling like myself. Usually I enjoy helping others, especially Patton. I just don't feel like cleaning up. I know I should since I told Patton I would, but I don't really want to. I just want to lay in bed all day. Of course I can't, but what if I can? Maybe tomorrow I'll just stay in bed all day.
