Drabble: The Vice-Captain’s Injury

My response to the August prompt ‘minor’.

Genre: general


~The Vice-Captain’s Injury~

A loud shriek almost made her drop her box of cakes. She quickly set the box on the bench and rushed into the training room.

Her attention went straight to the mat, where most of their injuries tended to happen, but the area was clear. She then swept her attention across the rest of the room. This time, she found her vice-captain huddled at the foot of the weapon rack.

“What happened?” she asked as she rushed to his side.

“It cut me,” he said and lifted his right hand to reveal a tiny cut on the inside of his little finger.

She bit back a very unflattering comment about that tiny wound.

“What cut you?”

“The shelf.”

She pressed her lips together and let her glare do all the talking. Her vice-captain pouted.

“I know it looks small, but it still hurts.”

“I’ll get the first aid kit,” she grumbled.

They must never let the rest of the population know that such a drama king was one of those in charge of protecting them from the monsters outside. He wouldn’t survive the teasing that would follow.
