Nursey was sitting at his desk, trying to get through a paper on the importance of sewers in Les Mis, when Dex slammed open their door, marched straight for their bunk beds, and flopped down face first onto Nursey’s bottom bunk.
Nursey was a bit too surprised to protest. Instead, he stared at Dex for a long moment, more confused than anything, before Dex said, “I’m done,” into Nursey’s pillow, and Nursey blinked.
He glanced back at his paper for a moment, before he spun in his desk chair to face Dex entirely, as he prompted, “Done with…?” expecting to hear Dex complain about an assignment, or his family, or the particularly hard practice they’d had that morning, and more or less ready for it. He had a few things he wanted to complain about as well, and Dex was always a good person to complain with.
However, instead of saying any of that, Dex said, “I’m never dating anybody ever again,” and it left Nursey even more confused than he’d been before.
Still, Dex didn’t offer up any more information on the topic so, after a moment, Nursey asked, “Are you… dating somebody?” sounding more incredulous than he’d meant to, but apparently not enough to earn him a glare from Dex.
Instead, Dex’s face stayed pressed into Nursey’s pillow as he said, “Was, Nurse. We just broke up,” and Nursey felt like the entire world had tilted on its axis.
