Sometimes, you need to lose everything to find yourself.
When Clay was stabbed, he realized he would die. When Apollo learned that his friend had been murdered, he realized that he would never see his best friend again.
Then, Clay woke up.
With his survival being kept a secret in order to protect him, it isn’t until after Apollo’s world completely collapsed that he learns that Clay is alive. Unfortunately, believing that your best friend has been murdered causes too much damage for one to just say that they’re fine and get over it. Especially when said friend can no longer pursue his lifelong dream.
Clay and Apollo’s worlds have been torn down, but sometimes, you have to tear a world down in order to rebuild it into something great.
