For Vince, the win at Nationals, as exciting as the whole experience had been, was entirely bittersweet. From the second he and Benji had gotten off the phone with Gavin on Saturday, all he'd done was worry and panic. Hell, he was shocked he was able to focus long enough to perform. One of the boys he loved - yes, he definitely loved Gavin now - was hurt, and where was he? In New York, singing and dancing. I shouldn't've even auditioned, he never would've got hurt if I was there to keep him safe. The ride home was torturous. All he wanted was to see Gavin. As they got home, Vince told Benji he wanted to go see Gavin alone and the other boy reluctantly agreed. He practically ran to his car, still in full Dalton uniform - he'd forgotten to bring any other clothes to New York. The drive to the hospital was just as bad as the past weekend, but at least he knew he would be able to see Gavin soon, and that was what was important.
After a string of minor traffic violations that went entirely unnoticed by the Westerville police force, Vince pulled into the hospital parking lot and opened his glove compartment, pulling one of two identical silver boxes out, and left the car, jogging towards the hospital. He was panting as he opened the doors and stopped at the lobby, looking helplessly at the attendant who asked him what the problem was. "I'm looking for Gavin." She opened her mouth and he blushed. "Sinclair. G-Gavin Sinclair." The attendant nodded and after a few painful seconds gave him the room number, which he sped to. Taking a deep breath, Vince knocked the door twice before opening it slowly. "G-Gavin? Uh, it's Vince."
