Just Visiting

Jack stared at Emo Aaron, not knowing what to do. The evil half stood there laughing menacingly as they were unsure exactly what to do.

"We have to find a way to get them to join back together," Rikki said.

"How do we do that?" Jack asked.

"I'm not sure."

"We do have one advantage though," Lotus said.

"And that is?" Jack asked her.

"I've heard about something like this happening to someone before. Their split half can only go so far from the original person. Aaron's evil half won't be able to get very far." At hearing this, Aarons evil half started to run the other direction. He only got halfway down the hallway when he was thrown backwards. He sat up and spat curse words at the invisible wall.

"We're disconnected!" Evil Aaron yelled at Lotus. "Why can't I go?!"

"Because you're obviously not entirely disconnected," Lotus said calmly but with a stern expression. Evil Aaron growled and he stomped down the hall and he shoved his way through them, but Jack grabbed his shoulder.

"Don't think you're getting away that easily," Jack said to him. Evil Aaron stared at him with a look of silent rage. Jack dragged the evil half to the room by his office and he sat him down in the chair. Jack shut the door behind him and locked it. He walked back to the infirmary where he found Carlyta caring for Aaron. He looked down and saw Yin, passed out on the floor.

"Sorry, she freaked out and I had to sedate her," she said.

"I understand. You did what you had to." He carefully picked her up. "I'll get her to her room." Carlyta nodded.

A while later.

Yin awoke feeling dizzy. She groaned and put her hand on her forehead. "Oh," she groaned softly, "what the hell happened?"

"When you tried to revive Aaron, Carlyta sedated you," Lotus said handing her a cup of water.

"What... why?" she asked, with a mild shortness of breath.

"Well, you could have killed him."

"I would never!" she said standing up, only to have a massive migraine. She groaned and held her head.

"Careful, you may still be feeling the effects of the sedative." Yin groaned.

"I want to see him."

"Well, Jack promised us that we could visit him, before we go to bed later."

"Really?"

"Mm-hm," she nodded. "You have been out for a few hours." There was a knock at their door. Yin carefully slid off the bed and answered it. It was Aoi.

"You want to see Aaron? Cuz' Jack's letting us visit him in the infirmary."

"Are we doing that now?" Yin asked her.

"Yes," Suzy said appearing behind her. We're all going."

"Alright," Lotus said. "Come on, Yin." Yin walked behind them, holding Lotus' hand for balance.

Outside the infirmary.

They were all standing outside the room. Rikki, Suzy, Aoi, Lotus and Yin were standing outside the room where Aaron was.

"Stay out here," Jack told them. "Let me check on him first." He walked in and he shut the door behind him. He walked over to the bed. The boy looked up.

"They want to see me, don't they?" Aaron asked. Jack nodded.

"They won't be here too long," he said.

"Alright, thanks." Jack walked out of the room and allowed them in. Yin gasped hurried over to him when she saw he was awake.

"I was scared you would die," she said hugging him, crying tears of joy.

"You were?"

"Yeah. I… I was yelling at you. Telling you not to die."

"I know." She brought herself away from him and she looked at him with disbelief.

"Y-you knew?!"

"Yeah. I could hear you."

"H-how?!"

"When people are unconscious, they can still hear anything around them," Aoi explained.

"Oh," Yin said going a little red-faced. "Sorry for yelling… at you."

"It's alright."

"Besides," Rikki said joining in, "I'm sure it would take more than what you went through to get rid of you."

"Oh," Aaron said with a laugh. "It would take a hell of a lot more than that to kill me."

"What can we do to keep it from happening to you again?" Suzy asked. Aaron fell silent.

"I don't know," he answered.

Yin then noticed that Aaron had a broken arm.

"How'd you break your arm?" she asked him.

"Apparently, I broke it that time I fell onto the ground."

"Aww. You're so broken. Does it hurt any?"

"Nah, it's alright." She hugged him.

"At least you're alright."

"Thanks." Jack then walked in.

"Come on students, let the man rest," Jack told them. They walked out of the room. Yin quickly leaned in and kissed Aaron on the forehead.

"Sweet dreams," she whispered to him. Then she walked out of the room. Jack looked at him.

"You're not even blushing," he said.

"Well, you know…"

"Sorry, son. Rest well." Jack shut the light off and he walked out with the door closing silently behind him. Aaron lay his head back and he sighed. He later fell asleep within moments.
