When he woke up in the middle of the night, it wasn’t because he had a problem. He knew something was wrong with you. He started from his sleep, brow furrowed in confusion. At least, until he looked over.
Your breathing was ragged, your face flushed and skin slick with cold sweat. You looked like you were feeling awfully uncomfortable. Almost feverish.
He barely made it through the night without going and stealing Libra from his home. Gaius did everything he could throughout the night, piling on blankets and trying to keep you hydrated. You didn’t want to drink anything, and you kept complaining about the heat.
All he knew was that was what you were supposed to do when someone had a fever. As if he hadn’t already been worried beyond comprehension, seeing you complain about feeling worse made him feel like more of a screw-up than usual. When Libra finally made it that morning, he nearly cried with relief.
