"what do you mean nothing?" macy asks with worry in her voice. mike looks at her nervously before looking back at will.

"i'm worried about him macy." mike admits, "he's my best friend. i don't know what i'll do without him."

mike's eyes welled up with tears, and macy could tell he was trying to hold them back. but he couldn't. he leaned into macy's shoulder, pulling her in for a hug for comfort. mike's tears stained macy's shirt, but she didn't care.

"hey it's going to be okay," macy whispered into his ear.

"how do you know that?" mike's voice cracked, "how do you know that he'll be perfectly fine like nothing ever happened?"

macy looks at joyce who was listening in on their conversation. bob stood behind joyce, his hand firmly on her shoulder. macy gives mike a 'we'll talk later' look and he nods.

macy walks around to the other side of the bed, standing in front of will.

"who is that?" will looks to bob.

joyce was confused, "what?"

bob chuckles nervously, "it's me, big guy. it's bob."

mike averts his eyes up to bob, while macy folds her hands together and onto will's bed. she took a seat so she could be closer to will, mike standing above and behind her.

bob tries to reach and hold will's hand, but he slides it away before he can get to him. will looked afraid, and scared.

"are you a.." will eyes bob up and down with his dark brown eyes, "doctor?"

"no, no. it's just me.. it's just bob." bob explained himself, as if will didn't recognize him at all.

will stared deadeyed at his mother and her boyfriend. macy looked back at mike who was looking deeply into his friend. macy couldn't help but feel guilt looking down at will, she just couldn't handle it.

"you don't remember me?" doctor owens spoke up to will and he shakes his head.

"how about uh, this young and pretty lady right here?" the doctor points to macy. she felt uncomfortable at his comment but blushed when will looked at her direction.

will took a few moments to think about who the redhead was. in his mind, he definitely recognized her. he just didn't remember her name.

"it's mace, will." macy answered for him to see if her nickname for him would ring a bell.

"that's my friend macy. i call her mace." he grins slightly, making macy happier that he remembered him.

she thought he would forget her. she was scared he would forget her. they had known each other for about a month now. but when she was with him, she felt like she could tell him anything. and he would never judge her.

she felt comfortable with him.

"how about this guy right here?" doctor owens pointed at mike. joyce was standing with wide eyes, biting her nails out of bad habit.

will turns his head from macy to mike slowly. mike waves at will, but there was no reaction. "know who that is?"

jim hopper had joined in with the other nurses all dressed in scrubs. he was under contamination, because he was previously stuck in the upside down hours before, but macy didn't know that.
