“How does that work? Achilles is so far out of his league and he can’t even see it.”
“I don’t get it. It must suck to date a blind kid, and Pat’s not even hot.”
They’d probably thought they were being quiet, but Patroclus is, after all, blind. His hearing compensates.
Or, "blind Patroclus feeling insecure because someone said he’s so plain while Achilles looks heavenly, so Achilles makes a point to describe everything that he loves about Pat’s appearance, in vivid detail, in the fashion of the 'tell me again' scene."

Patroclus has worked hard for everything he's earnt, so hearing from his University adviser that it might not work for him sends him into a frustrated spiral. As he's regaining his courage to continue with his path, he seeks comfort in the one he loves most.

“Hey Achilles?” I asked, my head on his stomach.
He stopped strumming. “Yeah?”
“Can I ask you something? It’s kinda . . .” I trailed off, humph-ing as I couldn’t think of the right word.
“Of course you can.”
I took a deep breath. “Why did you ask me out?”
I felt his muscles in his stomach tighten. “Because I like you?” He said, but it seemed more like he was asking me.
“Why?” was my initial response. I clamped a hand over my mouth at that, surprised at myself.
Achilles made a sound like he’d choked. “Are you actually asking me?”
“I hadn’t meant to but . . . yeah, sort of.” I shrugged. “It’s just . . . you’re so amazing and beautiful and I’m just me: plain.”
