"Nic, wake up," the whispering voice of my brother and his gentle push on my shoulder pulled me into consciousness.  I sat up in the hospital chair I had fallen asleep in, "What are you doing here?"

"What the fuck Nic, what do you think I'm doing here?" he practically growled at me, yet keeping his voice quiet.  "You called me, I told you I was coming, of course I would come.  Benji had an exam, but he'll be on a plane tonight.  What the hell happened?" he implored, his voice softening a bit at the end.  Looking at my watch I realized it was already the afternoon.

I quickly looked over at Finn in his bed, but he was still sleeping.  A nurse had come in and was checking all of his vital signs as well as changing his IV bag.

"How's he doing?" I asked her.

"He's doing just fine," she whispered back, "he just needs to rest, he'll wake up later this evening."

I looked over at my brother as she left the room.

"You look like shit!" he muttered as he pulled a chair closer and sat down.

"I feel like shit, I don't know what happened last night AJ, but I woke up at the club early this morning, my head about to crack open, tossed my cookies and then when I got home I found Finn.  I don't know what fucking happened and its killing me!"

"What do you mean you don't know what happened?"

"I blacked out.  I remember the early part of the night and the next thing I remember, I woke up laying on a couch in a private room at the club."

"Were you drinking? Have you talked to anyone? Jeff, Phillip?" my brother asked.

"I had a couple of beers, but not enough to even get me drunk.  I called Jeff this morning, but apparently he got tied up with some staff issues and thought I left, he didn't see me after that, but he's looking into it.  I've called Declan and apparently Jaime's mother is in the hospital which is why they came back early.  Everything happened so fast this morning and I didn't want to leave Finn alone…and then I guess I fell asleep.  I called Dr. Cortez and he had someone from a private lab come over and take a blood and urine sample from me."

"You think you were drugged?" Ajax asked in disbelief.

"When I described what happened and how I felt this morning, Doc thought there was a chance.  He'll know in a few hours."

"I'll stay with him Nic, you'd better go talk to some people before he wakes up.  It had to have been something bad for Finn to take sleeping pills.  Start with Declan and that kid that went with them and then go see if Jeff or Phillip know anything."

As much as I didn't want to leave Finn, I had to get all the facts so I'd know how to deal with this.  "Call me if he wakes up before I get back!"

"I will bro," Ajax confirmed.

Jaime's mother was in a hospital across town so I had Benny take me there as my first stop.  I had waited to call Declan this morning until I knew Finn was out of the woods, but when he met me in the lobby he looked almost as bad as me.

"How is she?" I asked.

"Not too good, how's Finn?"

"He's sleeping, they expect him to wake up early this evening.  They say he'll be fine, but I need to find out why he did it.  Do you have any clue?"

"He seemed fine when I put him and Chris in a cab last night."

"Why didn't you call me, tell me you were coming home early!" I demanded.
