Peeling Apples - injury cw
The exclamation and the clashing of items that followed, perked Gundham’s attention. He scrambled to find his bookmark; it certainly was not the ideal time for it to go missing. After feeling desperately around the sheets, he found it and tucked it away in his book. Sitting the book on the nightstand, he promptly scurried to the kitchen. He nudged the door open and failed to feel surprised by the scene in front of him.
Kazuichi hovered over the sink, gripping his hand. Gundham noticed the gash on his finger and how he held it away from the running water, hesitantly.
“Kazuichi! What have you done?” Gundham questioned, concern washing over him. He shuffled over to get a better view. The nick didn’t appear to be too distressing, but Kazuichi’s expression would suggest otherwise
He turned, head hanging as he spoke, “I tried to peel an apple, but ended up peeling my finger.” Using the uninjured hand, he turned the sink off. “I know I need to wash it, but it’s gonna hurt! And it already hurts. I’m not tryin’ to make it worse!”
Gundham shook his head and reached to turn the sink back on. “We are both aware that you must wash it.”
“I’ll just throw a bandaid on it—” He shrugged as he stepped away from the water. He was far too stubborn for his own good, and Gundham’s liking.
“You will do no such thing.” Kazuichi acted the same way every time he injured himself. Gundham began to think that perhaps he enjoyed being taken care of. He pulled a chair out from the table and motioned for Kazuichi to sit.
Souda obliged, sitting and waiting while Gundham fumbled through the cupboards. He searched until he came back to the dining table with a small kit and a wet cloth. “I store these items in the kitchen for a reason.” He sat in a chair, put in front of the other. “Let me see your finger.”
“Finee, but be gentle.”
Gundham nodded. He used the cloth to wipe the cut clean, continuing despite Kazuichi’s winces of protest. The cloth drug roughly across his skin. He laughed, “Your hands are exceptionally dry. I am not sure how you cut through your leather-like skin with a mere vegetable peeler.”
“Hey! Not nice Gundham.” Kazuichi pouted, “I do a lot with these hands.”
“Even more reason for you to take care of them.” He deadpanned and Kazuichi brushed him off; it was fair, considering Gundham spoke of how rough his hands were each time they touched. After finishing with the cloth, Gundham found a tube of ointment and applied it liberally on the skin. He then unwrapped a bandage and smoothed it down on his finger. “I have finished. It was not so awful, now was it?”
“Nuh-uh.” Kazuichi grinned, much to Gundham’s dismay. He knew he had dressed the wound in its entirety. “You gotta kiss it better.”
Of course he had to; it was Souda’s only demand with most injuries. After bumping into coffee tables, or being bitten by the devas: Kazuichi always requested a simple kiss to make it better. It felt foolish, but he placed a kiss on top of the bandage. “How could I let something of such importance slip my mind?”
Kazuichi smiled warmly at his action. Interlocking their finger together, he buzzed, “Y’know, you’re good at this, Gundy.”
“Thank you. However, it is truly an effortless task. One could compare it to, peeling apples, perhaps?”

“quite literally stalked” is such a weird phrase to use about friends lmao
coming for me now, huh? i am only going to answer this one ask so don't bother sending any more, i'll just delete them. (unless you want to have a genuine conversation, in which case i’m totally open to discussing more, but you’d have to come off anon.)
stalking is not only done by evil creepy people who mean harm. fans can stalk celebs. people in relationships can stalk their partner. friends can stalk friends. sometimes it's serious and dangerous and that’s when it is said with the legal definition in mind. and sometimes it's said in a less serious, joking/harmless or even affectionate way in casual conversation.
for example, you are fixated on this one user and you scroll through their account, and they have their other socials linked/mentioned so you go and look through/follow their other accounts. if you did this with malicious intent to gather info, or did it despite them blocking you, this is absolutely stalking (aka harassment). if you did it just because you really like them/their content, i would still call that stalking, bc it is in a way, albeit more jokingly since it's pretty harmless. if you’ve ever had a crush and searched for their social media and then looked through pictures they’ve posted or something: again, stalking. but again, usually pretty harmless.
obviously when i said dream stalked george and ponk i meant it in the latter harmless way, but i would still absolutely classify it as stalking. he spent hours looking through random footage to find his friends in the background. that's not something your average friends do. : )
