"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!"
