A Different Outcome

Some old habits are hard to get rid of


4. Movie Night

I'm so sorry it took me so friggin long to update. But I hope you enjoy


Patton's POV

Roman is excited. Of course, I am too, because it's movie night. Roman told us that he invited Virgil to come, which is awesome we need to include Virge more in things like this.

"I don't even know if he's going to come," Roman mumbled. He's been pacing around since after Virgil went back into his room.

"Calm down Roman," Thomas stated. Roman sighed.

"I'm sorry, I just hope he comes. He's the guest of honor," Roman told us.

"Do you want me to check on him kiddo?" I asked. Roman slowly nodded.

"Just don't give anything away," He told me. I nodded then sank down.

I went to Virgil's bedroom door. Don't give anything away. I told myself. I took a deep breath in before knocking on the door.

"Virgil?" I listened for a minute. "Hey kiddo, I was wondering if you'd want to come to our movie night." I paused again.

"What time is it?" I heard Virgil mumble.

"The movie night or right now ?" I asked repeating my thoughts.

"The movie night," He mumbled. I looked on my phone for the time.

"It starts in about twenty minutes," I replied.

"Okay," He replied. As I turned to leave I heard Vigil say something else. "Thanks," I smiled.

I walked back into the commons. "What'd he say?" Roman asked.

"He just asked me what time it started," I replied.

"What if he didn't see the note?" Roman asked. "What if he didn't even know about it?"

"Calm down Roman. I'm sure he knows about it. I can ask him if you want me to," I responded.

"Ask me what?" Virgil walked into the room.

"Hey Virgil," I smiled seeing him. I'm glad he decided to show up. I looked at Roman to see him smiling.

"What were you talking about?" He asked us.

"They were deciding whether or not to ask if you wanted to come to this movie night...again," Logan told him. Roman looked relieved as Logan spoke up.

"Well, I'm here now," Virgil mumbled.

"We shall start then," Roman ran into the kitchen. I followed behind. We started grabbing all the snacks, drinks, and dishes, that we were going to use. When we got back into the living room Logan and Virgil were sitting on the couch.

"What are you sitting on the couch for kiddos?" I asked them after I set the snacks down. Logan and Virgil looked at me confused. "We still have to make the blanket fort," I said in a 'duh' tone. Roman smiled.

"Movie night is not complete until the blanket fort is made. Off we go, to get the blankets," Roman exclaimed. Logan stood up, but Virgil didn't make a move.

"Aren't you coming, Virgil?" Roman asked. Virgil shrugged.

"Can't you just conjure up the blankets?" He looked at Roman.

"Well I could, but what would be the fun in that?" Roman walked over to Virgil and grabbed his wrist, pulling him off of the couch. Virgil rolled his eyes but walked with us. Logan stayed behind so he could be putting a movie on. Virgil slowly started falling behind.

Roman showed us where a lot of blankets were. When I saw a lot, I mean A LOT. It looked like a bedroom full of just blankets. Roman looked at me and chuckled.

"I've slowly been building them up," He smiled and grabbed an arm full.

"What do you mean building them up?" Virgil was just as surprised as I was.

"Whenever I conjure up a blanket, most of the time it's a new one. When I put it back it ends up here," Roman looked around the blankets towards the both of us. I also grabbed an armful.

Roman started walking off and I saw Virgil grab a single blanket before following behind the both of us.

We walked back into the commons to find Logan patiently waiting for us. Roman plopped the blankets in front of the TV and I did the same. Virgil just sat on the couch with the blanket he grabbed.

Now that I didn't have any blankets in front of my face I got a closer look at the blanket Virgil had. It reminded me a lot of Virgil's jacket. Mostly black with purple patches all over it.

Virgil curled himself up in the blanket and watched us start setting up the blanket fort.

Roman looked over at Virgil and smiled. "The fort is done," I walked in it and sat down. Roman and Logan both came in and sat down. Virgil didn't make any sign of moving.

"Aren't you coming, Virgil?" I asked him. He just looked at me and raised his eyebrow. "After all you're the guest of honor," I smiled. He frowned.

"Me? Roman and Logan said it was you," Virgil sighed.

"They told me it was you. So now I'm being lied to," He stood up

"Virgil," Roman looked at him. "Your our guest of honor we just said that so-"

"You lied to me. All of you," I looked at the ground. Did I lie to him?

"Except you Patton," Virgil stated and started walking out.

"Wait, Virgil," Roman called after him.

"You lied to me!" He ran off. Roman froze.

"I just wanted to do something nice for him," Roman whispered.

"Just be patient, kiddo. People don't change overnight. We just got to prove that we love him and want him to be included," I smiled at Roman and he sadly smiled back.

"Yeah you're right, I just have to have patience and continue trying," Roman got a look of determination on his face and I watched him walk towards his room.

I started cleaning up the blankets with Logan's help.

"Thanks," I smiled at him as I put the last of the blankets away, except the one Virgil had. I kept that one out.

"We should check on Virgil. I think it would be best to make sure he doesn't go into that room again," Logan is so smart. He thinks of almost everything. I followed him to Virgil's bedroom.
