Connections Ch 8 AlexDesmondDesmond was bed ridden for another three days. Three long, mind-numbing days. Most of Desmond's time was spent staring at the holes in ceiling of his room. He stopped after he couldn't find any new images. That left his mind to ponder on what exactly Alex had said three days before.Connections Ch 8 AlexDesmond by Clouds-Grl923
You mean the world to me.
He had going around in circles trying to figure out just what exactly Alex meant by that comment. Every time Desmond thought about it, his face felt a little warm. He had on more than one occasion told himself to stop acting like a flippant teenage schoolgirl. He had thought about asking Alex, but the man never seemed to be around. Even if he was, Desmond wasn't even sure if he could ask Alex about it. He was either completely over thinking it, or there was really something behind those words that he may never know. It seemed as though either way he'd never know and it would drive him insane. He actually let out a sigh of frustration one day while Dr. Ragland was checking up
Connections Ch 7 AlexDesmondSevere pain awoke Desmond from his deep sleep, causing him to first furrow his brows before cracking his eyes open. His head was pounding but his abdomen hurt far worse. Memories were cropping back up, reminding Desmond of his wounds. He blearily opened his eyes a bit more, trying to get them to focus so he could find out where he was now. He immediately recognized his surroundings to be Saint Paul's Hospital. He knew there was only one explanation as to how he got there and it was sitting right next to Desmond. Alex was sitting in one of the waiting chairs he apparently grabbed from one of the waiting rooms. His arms and legs were both crossed and he still wore the angry façade Desmond had become used to. Alex apparently noticed Desmond had regained consciousness because his gaze shifted from the wall to Desmond. Once again, Alex had saved Desmond from the bitter clutches of death.Connections Ch 7 AlexDesmond by Clouds-Grl923
Desmond tried to sit up with little success. His futile attempt ended with more pain in his abdomen
Connections Ch 6 AlexDesmondIt turned out that Alex had been staying at the hospital for the past four days. Desmond asked and asked why he would be staying here, but he never got an answer. It was later in the afternoon and Alex had run off into some other room. What did that leave Desmond to do with his free time? Explore, of course. He started with opening some of the doors in the main hall he was in. He found that most of them were locked. The last door he tried though was open. It led to another long hallway with more doors for Desmond to enter. Again, most were locked for some reason and again, the last one he tried was open. This process continued for about ten minutes until the door Desmond opened led to a room with a single man in it. There was a cadaver on one of the 5 tables the man was working with and places behind him to store other bodies. It was an autopsy room. The older black gentleman raised his head to see who had walked into the room.Connections Ch 6 AlexDesmond by Clouds-Grl923

Connections Ch 5 AlexDesmondAbout two days had passed since Desmond last saw Alex, not that he really cared. He was mostly left to his own devices except for around meal time. A woman named Dana would come in and leave some sort of meal for Desmond. Sometimes, she would even stick around and carry out a conversation with him. Desmond noticed after the first few visits that she looked an awful lot like Alex and figured they must be related. How else could they the same frost-bitten blue eyes?Connections Ch 5 AlexDesmond by Clouds-Grl923
"So, this whole infection is thanks to GENTEK?" Dana nodded at Desmond's question.
"At least that's what Alex thinks. Who really knows what's going on in the fucked up complex." She shook her head and shrugged. She had brought in a glass of what appeared to be water in with her. After a little bit of mindless chattering, Desmond decided to try to get some answers.
"Who is Alex, exactly? What's his relationship with you?"
"Alex is my older brother. He was pretty distant for 5 years until he showed up at my door aski
