There was a special bond the three of them shared and when Mike was shot, it shook Rafael and Sonny to the core. Especially Sonny. He was not only a lover but a fellow squad member and police officer. Everything was touch and go during the night. At first, the doctors were unsure if Mike would make it or not until the surgery was over with. After the surgery, Mike remained unconscious but stable. There was no way Sonny could sleep.

Mike only nods, resting his hands comfortably on his lap.

Sonny looks at him, “You know, you gave us all a scare there.”

“Believe me, I know. My dad. He didn 't leave my bedside for two days straight. He was very reluctant to go early this morning,” Mike says, looking a little exhausted.

Rafael had to resist the urge of rolling his eyes at the mention of Chief Dodds.

“Trust me, I have a protective Pops too, so I got you,” Sonny smiles. “Do you need us to get you anything? Are you allowed anything? I feel bad that we can 't stay that
