"You like The West Wing?" Axel asked with a dulcet sort of playfulness in his tone.

"Shut up," Hale snorted.

Axel watched it with him for a bit before he had to quite literally run for the bathroom where he ended up spending a fair bit of time being absolutely miserable while his body tried to kill him. He eventually turned the shower on and climbed into the bathtub naked. He sort of just laid there, curled up into himself with his head against the side of the tub and let the spray wash over him.

Hale didn't follow, but after a little while he knocked on the door and set a glass of water onto the counter.

His clothes were in a surprisingly neat pile on the floor but the bathroom definitely smelled like sick. Axel looked like the dead but he managed to raise his head enough to acknowledge Hale with a weak smile. "Thank you."

He knelt down beside Axel and helped him wrap his hands around the glass. Even with physical contact Hale didn't appear to react at all outwardly, he simply gave Axel a reassuring smile and rose back to his feet. "I'll fetch you a blanket," he said.

Axel closed his eyes and nodded. "Thank you."

When Hale got back Axel had managed to turn the water off and grab a towel which he'd managed to pull around his shoulders, but that was about as far as he'd gotten. When he tried to sit up the world had gone topsy turvy and his head had started spinning and he heaved. He didn't actually puke, thankfully, because there was nothing left in his stomach to vomit up.

Logically, he knew he was just going through withdrawal, but he felt like he was dying and not for the first time wished he actually was. He felt like such a burden, didn't like to be waited on and 'taken care of'. Once upon a time he had been the one to take care of others.

"Here," Hale came back in with a small medicine cup filled with amber liquid after he'd finished vomiting for the tenth time and a lull had finally occurred. He held it out. "Take this. If they kept you doped up for the last two years, it's going to be fairly difficult to kick cold turkey. We can start you on a taper plan. Lexi picked this up from the clinic, it's called methadone. It'll stop your withdrawals but it won't make you high. I'm assuming you don't have a clear idea as to the dose you were given, so we can start low and work up until you feel better."

Difficult was feeling like an understatement. He weakly took the medicine cup, trusting Hale wasn't trying to dupe or hurt him. He plugged his nose before swallowing it back in one shot.

He draped a blanket around Axel's shoulders and helped him lean against the wall, sitting down next to him.

He sniffled softly and his head slowly fell to rest on Hale's shoulder. "Tell me--something good."

"Something good," Hale snorted. "Here," he withdrew his phone from his pocket, tapped it a bit and then held it out to Axel. Displayed on the screen was a video which he pressed play on a moment later. It showed a baby sloth crawling around and yipping! loudly.

He smiled despite himself and held his hand up to cover his mouth. "Oh my god, it's so cute!"

"Feel that? Those are your endorphins. Hello, guy, it's been years since we've come up for air by ourselves! What is this? An adorable screaming sloth baby? Why yes, I'll take that." Hale affected a high falsetto and made accompanying hand movements.

Axel bit his bottom lip, finding Hale's exaggerations more adorable than the sloth itself. He hadn't laughed in ages it felt like. It felt weird. Good. But weird. Also tiring. Who knew it took so much physical strength to just laugh? "More?" He asked softly handing Hale back his phone. "Are there any baby panda videos?" He didn't remember much of his youth but he remembered he loved Pandas.

"My friend, there are more baby panda videos than you know what to do with," Hale approached him and sat down, flicking through his phone before passing it back on a particularly adorable one. "Apparently, so I've heard, pandas are so incredibly stupid that if they existed purely in the wild, they would be extinct."

Within moments of watching Axel was actually giggling, GIGGLING, like a school boy, at bvv the adorable pandas. He seemed to particularly like it when they tried going down and up the slide. "Yeah, I've heard that t-oooh!" He started giggling again, covering his mouth when one of the pandas cragsed into another one at the bottom of the slide and they both went toppling off. "They're so cute though. I want one."

Hale's smile was fond as he watched Axel showing some genuine joy over this simple pleasure. "You can keep the phone," he said after a while. "It is a spare from the stores, Erik won't mind."

Axel's expression turned surprised and humble. His brow furrowed and he shook his head. "I couldn't--I mean--I wouldn't even know how to use it. The last time I held a--mobile phone it was--like the size of a small brick and definitely did not have a screen like this." He looked back down at the panda video still playing and bit his lip to try not to bust out giggling. "Is there--like a tutorial or--"

"You press this button here," he touched the home button, "and that takes you to this screen. Each of the applications are labeled. You have your phone, your text messages, Facebook, YouTube, 8tracks is a radio, notes allows you to write things down, the internet browser lets you connect to webpages. It's not entirely intuitive, but at least it will give you something to do," Hale said kindly. "It's yours. Feel free to play around with it, and don't worry about breaking it. Erik gets them practically for nothing."

Axel studiously followed along and listened to Hale's instructions, hoping he remembered them later. "How do I get back to the--" He pressed the little button next to the home button on accident and a menu of open background apps came up and he tapped on the one with the panda video. "--ah. Ok." He pressed play. "Who is Erik, again?"

"You'll likely find out soon enough, he always wants to meet new residents. He designed this complex and runs Brotherhood Security. Bit of a sexist name, I reckon, but it is a convenient cover. And it provides people such as myself, and you if you are interested, with much needed employment."

Axel got kind of a spooked look on his face. "I don't know how to do anything other than--" He worried his bottom lip hard and looked down and away, obviously embarrassed or ashamed, or both. His stomach was suddenly in knots and he felt nauseous all over again.

"If you wish to learn, you may. If you do not wish to learn, you won't be expected to. The option is there." Hale gave him a reassuring smile. "While you are here, your body and your mind are your own. Should anyone act contrary to that, advise myself or Erik and they will be appropriately dealt with."

He did. He did want to learn. Everything. Anything. "I want to learn. I want to--help." He would definitely NEED something to do to occupy his thoughts and time and hands.
