He'd been having nightmares again. Not that they had ever truly stopped, those bad dreams laced with images of the staged room and the trunk. They had never truly left him, they'd just become less frequent. However, ever since Halloween, they were back in full force, with friends now, even. There were new nightmares now, nightmares starring the... The thing he'd seen that night. The strange vision wearing Alex's flesh. A frightening hallucination surely painted by a rough night out, and a tumble back into bad habits and pills.

He'd been doing so well, he'd been looking after himself, but- Ever since that night, he'd been slipping. He did his best to put on a good show for Hex, but when the other man worked the night shift, Danny was back at the bars and the clubs. There were little baggies hidden in his cigarette packs, and dark circles under his eyes. He'd lost weight again, slipping from trim to gaunt, and more than once he'd forgotten to take his meds.

He was a mess, and though he hid it fairly well, he knew it couldn't last. Hex likely already knew something was wrong, it was only a matter of time before it all came crumbling down around him, Just one more fuck up to add to the pile.

It was late, well after midnight, and Danny sat in the middle of the living room floor, half naked and shaking. He'd taken... he'd taken two of the blue and one of the pinks, and that wasn't right. That definitely wasn't right, was it? No, it was... It was supposed to be the other way around. ...Definitely. His heart was going a million miles a minute, and Hex was due home any moment. He just needed to come down. He just needed to come down and go to bed, and then everything would be fine. Hex wouldn't have to know, and tomorrow he'd do better. Tomorrow he'd- He'd stop. Tomorrow he'd do right. He could fix this, he could be better.

He felt cold, and his hands shook as he looked at the last pill in the bag, his paranoia getting the best of him.

They tampered with it.
He thought. They did it to Scotty, why not you? They already got you once... It's poison. You took poison.

That's what he had himself convinced of as he lay down on the rug, like a man settling into his grave. The drugs were just drugs though. Not poisoned, not tampered with. ...Just too much for his fragile system to take.

Hex came home from the gym to find Danny on the rug, looking like death. He dropped his bag and went to him. Panic grabbed him hard and he had a hard time thinking of his training at first.

"Danny! Oh my god, Danny!" he said, giving him a shake, then trying to find a pulse to see if he was even alive.

If Danny's words and muddled speech hadn't been enough to tip him off, the baggie made things crystal clear. That was when all his years as a medic and a nurse took over.

"It's alright, Danny," he said as a calm settled over him. "Just need to get you to the hopsital. But first I'm going to get you a little drink, yeah? It's going to be alright."

He kept a solid first aid kit and went to it, mixing up a bit of activated charcoal and water to take to Danny. The man wouldn't like to drink it, but he needed to choke it down to stop any drugs in his stomach from working further.

"Hush and drink this," he said as he cradled Danny in a sitting position so he could hold the glass to his lips. "Drink it up, Danny."

Hex was careful and patient, working to get Danny to take a few more sips. He checked his pulse again and decided he needed help. He pulled out his mobile to call for an ambulance.

"It's going to be alright, Danny," he assured him before the dispatcher got on the line.

Danny could protest all he liked, but Hex was sober and he knew what needed to be done. He relayed the address and that it was a drug overdose, but he didn't know what kinds of drugs. That upset him more than anything. He'd thought Danny was getting clean.

He left the phone on speaker and put it down so he could hold Danny closer.

"Come on, Danny. Hold on. We'll get help and you'll be alright," he said, almost more to reassure himself.

He sighed softly and gathered Danny closer. He could only imagine how awful Halloween had been for Danny. That thing, that thing that had looked like Alex, it haunted him too...but surely not to the same degree.

"I know, Danny," he said as he held him close. "But you don't have to do this. You're only going to...drugs aren't the answer, love. I know, that's rich me of all people saying that, but they're not. I'll help you."

"Danny? Danny, stay alert," Hex said, giving him a shake, though not hard. He was just starting to panic when he heard the ambulance coming up the street. Relief washed over him. "Good now. It's alright. Help's almost here. We'll get you care," he said softly.

Hex was right there, watching telly to pass the time. When Danny began to stir he put it on mute and turned his chair to be at his side.

He rested his hand on Danny's arm.

"There you are. Gave me a fright," he said gently.

"Hey, now. Don't look away," he said, his thumb drawing a slow circle on Danny's wrist. "Do you want some water? You're probably raw from the tube..."

Hex nodded and got the cup, filling it with ice cold water from the little pitcher. He bent the straw so Danny wouldn't have to strain.

"Little sips at first," he said. "You're going to be alright. They got you sorted out. Gave me one hell of a scare, though..."

"You're forgiven, Danny," Hex replied, reaching to stroke Danny's cheek. "But when you're better, when you're home, I think we need to have the hard conversation about what you've done and why."

"No, love. We're going to have to. Not now. Not today. Today you get better."

He pulled Danny's hand up and kissed it lightly.

It would be so nice to ignore this and hope it went away, but Hex knew that wouldn't happen. He knew and he knew Danny knew. If they ignored it then it would fester between them. If they talked and it drove them apart that was one thing, but to let it quietly poison them...Hex wouldn't have that.

Hex didn't leave. For a long time he didnt even let go. But then he eased back in the chair and closed his eyes so he could get a bit of rest now that Danny was alright.

Though it wasn't long before a nurse came in to take Danny's vitals and Hex listed to her as she went about her business.
