"Emile, are you going to be okay?" Josh asked, concerned.
"I don't know." Emile sobbed.
"Do you want to talk about it?" Josh asked, running his fingers through his hair.
"No." Emile replied.
Just then Tim walked in and Emile looked up expectantly.
"It's your turn, Josh." Tim said.
"Let Emile go again. I think he needs it more than I do." Josh said, biting his lip.
"Thank you." He mumbled rising from his chair.
Emile walked into the hospital room where Jon was now unconscious.
"Jon, I want you to be okay. I feel like this is all my fault. I should have just let you tell everyone about us. If you wake up, you can tell whoever you want. I'll even announce it on my channel. Just be okay." He said, sitting next to his bed and crying.
"I love you, Emiliano." Jon muttered.
"Jon!" Emile exclaimed gleefully.
"The one and only." He said a little more loudly.
Emile smirked. He was rapidly getting back to his old self.
"It's not your fault."
"What?" Emile asked.
"It... It isn't your fault." Jon said, struggling to sit up.
"Lay back down, Jon."
"Not until you say it. Say it isn't your fault."
"It isn't my fault."
"That's my boy."
Emile felt a fluttering in his stomach.
"You had a heart attack, Jon." Emile told him, turning his head away. "How could I not blame myself?"
"I had a heart attack?" Jon said, shocked.
"But I've never had a heart condition."
"That is apparently not the case." Emile said.
"What do you mean?"
"Do you not remember passing out on my couch while recording TRG stuff?"
"Well, you did. Scared the shit out of me."
"I'm sorry." Jon said.
"It's not your fault. Don't apologize."
"It's not your fault, either."
"Yeah. I know."
"But I do expect you to keep your promise." Jon grinned.
"What promi- Oh."
"Don't tell me. You're afraid people will call you gay?"
"Yes." Emile squealed.
"Honey, in case you haven't noticed, you are gay."
Emile felt ashamed. He had denied a part of himself. He had denied Jon. And for what? So that people would not call him something he was.
"I... I know. I'm going to announce it on my channel tomorrow."
"Also announce where I am, why, and how it happened and that I'll be taking a short hiatus to focus on my health. Please?"
"Of course. But your Subscribers aren't going to like it. You know that they already complain about your upload schedule."
"No, but the Protonconroy shippers sure will."
"Imagine the fan fiction!" Emile exclaimed.
They both laughed.
A/N: I just want to thank you all for reading this. There may or may not be a new chapter tomorrow. I've got a lot to do and am not sure if I'll get to writing it.
