Black eyes looked at Serena when she snickered. It helped to remove some of the tension that had been building in his shoulders as he relaxed a bit. He hadn't even realized he was that stressed. He smiled at her, thankful that she was here. "Sorry," he apologized. "I just figured you were more than a pretty face is all." He really was grateful for her friendship. He'd probably helped saved her life,  but she had also saved his. Sometimes you just needed a person to protect in order to keep yourself out of trouble. Call it distrustful, but sometimes he worried that she'd slip up. He didn't want to lose anymore friends. He said nothing when Kinaga claimed himself to be fine. They all knew that was a lie. He ran his hands through his spiky brown hair, stopping halfway through when Marius started to stir. That was putting it very lightly.

Marius woke up in a fit. It was obvious he was in pain and disoriented. Most people where when they woke up in a strange place without any memory of how they got there. He started trying to brush the IV's off him, but they were held firmly by tape. Ocean blue eyes were wide with panic. He started gasping, trying to draw in breath. Everything seemed awfully bright, ironically like being on psychedelic drugs.

Serena rolled her eyes when Roy tried to amend the situation. "Yeah, suuure." She'd been in situations like this before. Some of her old friends had been in the hospital due to overdosing and she'd always come to their rooms to sit with them and their families, even though she had personally never stopped using until a while after she'd met Roy. She knew how these scenarios worked. Everybody was always mopey and mourning over a loss that didn't exist if someone didn't step up and try to lighten the situation up a little. However, when Marius woke up and started panicking, Serena wasn't quite sure humor would make it better anymore. She stood up and took a step back when Kinaga was suddenly right at Marius's side.

The blue haired male's eyes darted to Marius when the other male started into a fit. Kinaga immediately stood up and moved forward, taking one of Marius's hands once the guy started trying to brush off the IV's. "Hey, Marius, Mar, look at me," he said, his voice shaky. "It's Kinaga, hey, you're okay." One of his hands left Marius just long enough to press the red button that would call a nurse or a doctor in. After he pressed the button, his hand went to the side of Marius's face. He'd had a kid go into a fit in the middle of one of his classes before, but this was nothing like that. Kinaga actually had a bond with Marius, the guy was his best friend. This was much, much scarier.

Marius heard a voice, but it sounded so far away. It took him a minute to really focus and see Kinaga. Long enough for the nurses to come rushing into the room. He felt his friend's hand on his face, on his hand. It was comforting. Those ocean blue eyes were wide and frightened. He opened his mouth to say something, but his throat hurt so bad. He glanced at the nurses as they ushered Kinaga away. He placed a death grip on Kinaga's wrist, refusing to let go. He didn't want to let go. He was scared and he didn't have a clue as to what was going on. He gave a pitiful wail as the nurses pried his fingers away from Kinaga. He tried fighting them away, but they held him down, unable to sedate him. They called for a doctor as the seizures started. The room was suddenly loud with blaring noises from the machines, the nurses yelling over it, and the overall movement from multiple bodies at work.

Roy stepped back outside of the room right before the nurses came rushing. He'd heard them coming and he didn't want to be in the way. He took in a shaky breath as shit started hitting the fan. Roy tucked his hands into his pockets, leaned against the wall, closed his eyes, and started silently counting to a hundred. It was either do that or run screaming.

Kinaga forced a smile for Marius when he seemed to notice he was there. "It's okay Mar, I'm here," he repeated quietly. And then the nurses came in and tried to remove him from his best friend's side. Even with Marius's grip on his wrist, they still found a way to start moving him away from the pink haired male, despite his own protest. "Let me stay with him, please, please, he needs someone here," he begged. And then the noises from the machines started, and when the nurses finally pushed him back, he stumbled back a few steps. He would have fallen backwards if Serena hadn't been there to steady him. He couldn't even see Marius through the crowding of nurses. Kinaga's face paled a shade and he took a step back, his eyes wide. Gods...was this really happening all over again..?

Serena moved out of the way of the doctors just as Roy did, but didn't leave the room. She saw the nurses trying to move Kinaga, and the blue haired man didn't seem to want to leave any more than Marius wanted him to leave. When Kinaga stumbled back, she put her hand on his back to steady him. "Let them do their jobs. Let's step out for a couple minutes, okay? He'll be fine." A pause and she moved around to look at the male beside her. "Kinaga?" Concern washed over her when she saw his face. He looked absolutely traumatized. Like he was going to break down at any given moment. He looked horrified, like he believed the nurses were there trying to hurt Marius instead of help him. It finally clicked. Kinaga hadn't told her that his fiance had died in a hospital, but it made sense now. Serena felt horrible for not realizing it sooner. "Come on Kinaga," she said, putting her hand on his arm and turning him away, leading him out of the room.

Kinaga looked back when Serena led him away, and when he spoke, his voice was quiet and small. "But...he needs someone there..." They were going to kill him. That's all Kinaga could think. He knew what those noises meant when the machines started acting up, and it wasn't good. He'd heard them a thousand times over.

"And we'll be there for him. But right now the doctors and nurses need to be there for him." She looked to Roy. "Let's go grab some food or something Roy. He'll be okay, they'll take care of him," she told the both of them with a small frown. Her eyes were practically begging Roy to come along. She didn't want to leave either one of them alone right now.

Roy wasn't worried that Marius wouldn't be okay. He was worried that he might be on the edge of that carefully maintained control. He was worried that he might not wait for Tobias to show up. He was worried that six inches of cold steel wouldn't be enough to make him feel satisfied. He looked into Serena's eyes, meeting her gaze and nodding. He didn't want food, although he hadn't eaten tonight because he and Marius were supposed to have gone on a date. He moved away from the wall slowly as Marius started screaming. The muscles in his arm so tense you could see the veins. He restarted his count as he moved away from the room, blindly following Serena. He tried to focus only on the count, but he kept seeing Marius attached to all those wires and in pain. He tried to focus on the count,  but all he could hear was the blaring machines and Kinaga's desperate pleas. He tried to focus on the on the count,  but all he could see was Serena being a much needed wall of support.  He tried to focus on the count, but he saw Tobias, heard the way he talked about Marius. A calmness fell over him, as if he'd resigned himself to the reality of the situation, or rather the decision he'd just made. He walked up on Kinaga's other side. "It's not easy standing on the sideline, not being able to do anything to help, but Serena is right. Let them do their jobs. They're going to keep his heart beating so that the next time he wakes up, he'll have you to keep him company. You saw how relieved he was to see you. He's still there. He's still Marius, and he's not going anywhere." The words came out sincere and calm. He didn't even glance over his shoulder. Marius would be fine.

Kinaga kept glancing back over his shoulder, but let Serena lead them away from the room. Marius had finally woken up, but...they wouldn't even let him stay in there with him. Blue eyes gained a bit of a shine as they turned towards the ground in front of him. Gods, what if Marius thought they were abandoning him? He had to be so scared. Kinaga glanced to Roy when the taller male spoke to him, swallowing lightly. He knew he had to look pathetic right now, but he couldn't help it. His eyes found their way back to the ground when Roy told him that the doctors were going to keep Marius' heart beating. That Marius was still there, and that he wasn't going anywhere. Kinaga's hands clenched as they walked and he barely even realized when Serena told him to sit down once they got to the food court.

The purple haired female put a hand on Kinaga's shoulder once they were to the tables, as if encouraging him to sit, since he hadn't seemed to hear her. "You two sit down, I'll go grab us some food. You in the mood for anything specific?" she asked, trying to keep her voice light as Kinaga sat down. She was glad when she actually got a response from Kinaga, even though it was only a shake of his head, and turned her gaze to Roy instead.

Roy sat down without being told. He looked at Kinaga for a moment then to Serena. "Whatever is fine," he told her, black eyes unwavering. He gave her a small smile, telling her that he'd make sure Kinaga was okay. Rpy was fine. Yeah, he was having flashbacks of a less than pleasant time, but to hell with it. Kinaga needed him to keep his head on straight. He waited until Serena was gone to speak. "Kinaga." He said the other's name and it demanded attention in a gentle sort of way. "I know that Serena and I are pretty much strangers, but we're here for you and Marius." He held eye contact with the other to make sure he understood.  "Marius is going to be fine. It may not seem like it right now, because he looks worse for wear, but he's a fighter. You've known him longer, so you know this much is true. As for Tobias, don't worry about him. He won't hurt Marius anymore.  That's a promise." He didn't even offer a comforting smile. "I'm not good with the whole comfort thing, but I know how to protect people. I like Marius, a lot and I won't stand by and watch someone hurt him. He's going to need all of us. Grieve now, it's fine, but when he wakes up again, let him know you're there for him. Just like you did before. The best way to shut down an abuser is to let the victim know there's more outside the bullshit." He kept his voice even, yet serious. "Marius isn't capable of saying no, but we can let him know that there's more options than just Tobias." That man's name made him feel violent and he didn't want to be violent. The thing was, violence was all he knew.

The gold band on his finger drew Kinaga's attention away after Serena left. He looked down at it silently, his breath shaky, and turned it around his finger again and again. Shisu...I wish I could talk to you again...I need you so much...I miss you so much... His blue eyes were shining lightly, but no tears formed or spilled over. Kinaga looked up at Roy when he heard his name called. He felt bad that he was acting like this. He should have been the one that was the shoulder to cry on. It was how it had always been. He felt worse when Roy told him that Marius was going to be fine. That he didn't have to worry about Tobias. He felt worse because he wasn't afraid of Tobias coming back. Not right now, anyways. He felt worse because he didn't want to lose Marius for purely selfish reasons. He just didn't want to be left alone. Marius was all he had left to cling to in this world. Kinaga took a deep, shaky breath when Roy finished speaking, but nodded. "R...right." A pause. "Yeah...you're right," he repeated, giving a small nod. He wondered if he looked as out of it as he felt. His mind was reeling. The sound of those machines were echoing in his head, burrowing their way in and making him remember things he didn't want to remember. Kinaga continued turning his wedding ring on his finger and swallowed. Marius was the important one right now. He couldn't keep being the pity party like this. It wasn't right. He didn't need the help of others, he couldn't keep worrying everyone else. He didn't matter, not in the grand scheme of things. He didn't know what else to say to Roy, but he felt like Roy's words had helped pull him out of that awful haze he'd been in a few moments ago.

Serena came back a few moments later with a platter full of chicken tenders with various types of sauces, french fries, and three bottles of water. She put them down on the table and sat down next to Roy. "You guys okay?" she asked, looking between them. She was beyond relieved when she saw a bit of life in Kinaga's eyes when he looked to her and nodded without a word. Whether he was speaking or not, his expression said that he was at least better than when they'd left the room. She smiled lightly when Kinaga took a fry and idly started nibbling at it.

Roy sat back in his chair when Kinaga seemed to ease up a bit. Not by much, but the difference was noticeable. He looked up at the ceiling for a long moment, his mind wandering until Serena returned with the food. He looked uninterested in the meal. " Yeah, I'm good," he answered when she asked how they were. He looked at her sideways. "You okay?" That's how these things worked. You made sure everyone was holding up. He really couldn't bring himself to eat right now. What he wanted to do was go out and smoke a cigarette. What he wanted to do was go make a few phone calls and make sure those close to him were okay. Today had made him realize that he didn't keep in touch enough with people that mattered. He'd purposely kept them at a difference, but he'd go to the ends of the earth for them and he never knew if they were well. Never knew if they were breathing, well fed, sheltered.  He expected them to be able to hold their ooen because they were adults, but seeing Marius reminded him that not everyone was strong. It reminded him that not everyone could hold their own. Some people needed protecting.  He knew that personally. He'd needed protecting, but instead he had become the protector. He shook his head lightly, frowning.
