"Why didn't you tell me? I found one of your pills."

His heart had skipped a beat as Sara had held the pill out to him. He knew what it was. Knew too well, actually. Though it wasn't his. He wasn't...

He wasn't.

Except the people who'd hurt Alex, the people he'd upset, they had incredible power. They could do anything- Was it so far out of the realm of possibility that they could infect him?

He wanted to believe there was a limit- Not only to what they could do, but the lines they would cross. He held onto that hope as he sat in a small room, waiting for the nurse to come and test his blood. ...To prove to himself that he was still clean. That he wasn't positive.

Hex had seen the name on the paperwork and came into the room with a look of recognition on his face. He wasn't too put off doing the test, it was common, especially among the club boys Hex had used to hang about with.

"Danny," he said warmly. "Good to see you, mate. In for a test, yeah? I can do that. Why don't you pull up your sleeves."

"It's always smart to get a test. Even if you're careful, other people aren't," he said reassuringly. He pulled out the needle and vial as well as the antibody test.

"Now it can take up to six months for HIV to show up but you can produce the antibodies for it as soon as six weeks after exposure," he explained as he began to clean Danny's arm.

"I got clean, mate. Got sober. Turned me life around and did some traveling. Lends perspective," he replied, drawing the blood and then running the test.

"Now this only takes a few minutes. I'm going to go back here and run the test and we'll see what it says. Sit here and try not to get worked up, yeah?"

When Hex came back he walked more slowly. He carried a test device.

"Danny..." he started.

There were two blue dots.

"Two is positive for antibodies," he said, followed quickly by, "So that's an automatic retest because there can be false positive."

Hex held him steady, cleaned the arm, and stuck him again. The blood flowed into the vial and then he went to the back with the test to run it.

Three minutes felt like forever.

"Danny," Hex said gently, setting the test with two dots aside. "Danny, open your hand. Give me the needle. Come on, Danny. It's going to be alright. We'll get you on a regimen right away. Is there anyone here with you today? Anyone you want me to call?"

"I'm sure you have been, Danny. One little mistake...a hole in a condom...it happens," Hex said softly. He gently cleaned up the blood and brought Danny to the table to bandage his hand.

"Look, I get off in an hour. If you can wait, I'll take you home. My home if you don't want to go to yours. Alright?"

"Danny, you shouldn't be alone. We were...well, not mates. But mates. Mates, yeah? And you really need to not be alone. Go sit in the waiting room. I'll arrange your regimen to take home today and we'll get you started, alright?" he said, only being kind because...because he knew no other way to be.

Hex made arrangements and got off early to take Danny home. He had a paper sak with bottles of pills inside and instructions on how to take them.

"Want to go?" he asked. "We can take the tube. Mine or yours...maybe mine would be better..."

"These are yours. I'll put them in me bag, alright?" he said as he stashed the meds in his messenger bag. He still wore his scrubs but had a posh black leather jacket Spencer had helped him buy on.

"Let's go."

And on, out, down to the tube. Hex paid for them both and they were in a crowded car. Hex kept Danny close, afraid he might tremble apart.

"I've seen the papers," he replied softly. He'd seen them and unlike the rest of the nation who was in awe and disgust with the young man, Hex only wondered how things could have gone so wrong for him. Not a real surprise- it would have wound up like that for Hex had he not stopped drinking.

"Do you like the videos?" he asked then.

He smiled at the compliment and then impetuously reached over and put his arm around Danny.

"It's going to work out, mate," he said. "I know this is a huge bombshell but these days It's not a death sentence, yeah? It'll be alright."

Hex took a slow breath and nodded.

"But it isn't a death sentence, Danny. Things have come along in thirty years. Now you can even go into remission," he said, trying desperately to give Danny some hope.
