Drabble: The Captain’s Injury
My response to the August prompt ‘major’.
~The Captain’s Injury~
Their captain sat in a pool of blood, body half covered by wounds of all shapes and sizes. Among them, he had the worst injuries.
Even if the one moaning the most was the vice-captain.
As the least injured, she took charge of the long and intense task of patching their tattered captain together.
“How are you feeling?” she asked as she worked.
“Terrible. But I’ll live,” he said in the same tone he used to tell them training was over for the day.
“Are you in pain?”
“You don’t sound like you’re in pain,” she said with a wry smile.
“Ow. I’m dying from the pain. Save me.” The dramatic words were borrowed from the vice-captain, but the flat tone was completely the captain’s. The absurd contrast cracked both of them up, but the captain’s chuckle soon turned into a painful cough.
