Will woke up just a few hours later, getting enough sleep to keep him going. He was too nervous to sleep much more- he wanted to make sure Nico was alright.
Nico had dozed off without his oxygen mask, Will gently fixing the mask on his face. He looked pale and haggard, worn and beaten down. With some measure of relief, he found that at least his fever had gone down a bit.
Even asleep Nico was restless. He shivered violently, disjointed nightmares filling his head, causing him to whimper and squirm.
His heart was beating fast, too fast, each palpitation more painful than the last.
