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.


13. Unwell

Logan's POV

"Why isn't Thomas up yet? It's two in the afternoon. He can't waste his day away like this," I sank down. "Roman! Patton!" Where is everyone? Roman popped up.

"What do you want pocket protector?" Roman mumbled.

"Where is Patton?" I asked. Roman just shrugged and sat on the couch. "Well, Thomas is still in bed." I pointed to Thomas, who was in fact still asleep. "and it's two in the afternoon. He's just wasting his day away, unproductively." I sighed in annoyance.

"Patton!" I shouted again. Still nothing. "Virgil!" Roman looked at me.

“Do you think they’ll come?” Roman asked me. I looked at him. “Like maybe Patton is helping Virgil with something and they don’t want to be bothered.”

“Patton usually tells us when he can’t come or else somehow lets us know. Why wouldn’t he now,” I explained to him.

“I guess I can go see where Patton is,” Roman mumbled sinking down back into the mindscape. Now time to help Thomas.

“Thomas, it’s time to get up. Today is a busy day,” I tried talking to him. He just mumbled and groaned. “Thomas, if you waste your day lazing around, you’ll never get anything done. You day will be unproductive.”

“There’s nothing special about today anyway,” He mumbled from underneath is blankets. I sighed. I'm not the best at this.

"Where's Patton?" I mumbled to myself. I turned to Thomas, "Think about all the new things you can learn, all the books you can read." Thomas groaned.

"It's all useless information in the end. So why bother?" Thomas sighed. "I just want to be alone right now."

"You can't stay in your bed, indefinitely," I replied. Sinking down, I went to find Patton.

Roman’s POV

I went to find Patton. It seemed strange that we haven’t seem him all morning. The first place I checked was in the kitchen, but he wasn’t there. The next place I looked was his room. Maybe that should’ve been the first place I looked.

“Patton,” I knocked on his door. Not hearing anything I tried again. “Patton are you in there?” I waited. Still no answer. That can’t be a good thing. I tried turning his doorknob. It was locked.

“Patton!” I yelled. I still didn’t hear anything. Maybe he’s not in his room at all?

I turned to leave right when Logan came up to me.

“Is he in there?” He asked me. I shrugged.

“I don’t know. If he is, he’s not answering and his door is locked.” I replied. Logan looked puzzled.

“That’s strange. His bedroom door is never locked.” He told me. He knocked on it.

“Patton?” Logan stopped. “Patton if you don’t answer now then we are going to force your door open,” I stared at Logan.

“Are you sure we need to do that?” I asked him. He nodded.

“Think about it. Dayal came back, Virgil is sick and Patton is not answering to either of us” Logan replied. I nodded in agreement. What he’s saying makes sense, but even I don’t want to go as far as forcing Patton’s bedroom door open.

“What about Virgil? Shouldn’t we make sure-” I started.

“I already did. He’s in his room asleep,” Logan interrupted.

“Oh,” Was all I could think of to reply. After about a minute of no one doing or saying anything Logan knocked on Patton's door again.

"Patton, Are you in there?" We heard shuffling around and not a moment later; the door opened. Patton looked disheveled and tired.

"Patton what happened?" I couldn't stop myself from asking.

"Do you need anything." He put a smile on his face.

"We were looking for you, but seeing that you are...unwell. We can let you rest." Logan commented.

"What do you need me for?" Patton said starting to come out of his room.

"Uh..nothing.." I remarked. "We can get-" Logan looked sternly at me. Patton looked at me then at Logan, confused.

"Get what?" He asked.

"You need to rest Patton," I told him.

"I'm fine. How's Virgil? Is he getting better? And how is Thomas holding up?" Patton changed the subject. Logan sighed.

"Patton you clearly are not feeling well. You need to rest as much as Virgil is. And I'll somehow manage with Thomas." Patton looked at the ground.

"I'm sorry, I just-"

"Confirm with me that you'll rest." Logan didn't let Patton finish. Patton slowly nodded and Logan slightly smiled then walked away.

"Where is he going?" Patton whispered.

"He's probably going to try and convince Thomas to get out of-" I cut myself off.

"What? Thomas is still in bed? Why? He can't stay in bed all day. It's already-" Patton looked in his room. "Three! I need to go get him out of bed." Oh no, I shouldn't have said anything.

"Patton, you promised Logan you would rest. At least rest for a little while longer then go help Thomas. You need to care about yourself too." Patton looked defeated. He sadly closed his bedroom door.
