Whumptober #29- I think I need a doctor
“Ah, Ah! No! Get yourself back in bed!” Henrik yelled from the kitchen downstairs. Despite having super hearing, the doctor’s voice came through in a muffled sound. Muffled, yet loud. The hero hisses softly, his hand gripping the side of his bandaged head in attempt to subside his pounding headache.
Still, Jackie let his body be supported by the wall next to the bed. He could walk off a few broken ribs, a sprained ankle and a dislocated shoulder, right?
The steeps echoing from down the hallway have his head snapping towards the door, and, just in cue, Henrik opened the door. His icy blue eyes were on the tray he had in hands before they went to the bed, brows already dipping in a scowl while his eyes shifted towards the hero. “I thought I told you to get back to bed.”
Jackie offers him a sheepish smile before sliding his hand to scratch the back of his head. “M’Fine, Hen. See? I’m on my feet and ready to kick ass.” After the last word was said his face contorts slightly in pain, his hand sneakily, not really, gripping at his side. “Okay… I think I need a doctor.”
“I swear, if you popped your stitches open….” Henrik grumbled as he gently pulled Jackie’s arm away. As he suspected, the bandages that were wrapped around his upper body was spotted with crimson stains. The doctor lifts his eyes, a deadpan expression on his face. “Get back in bed, I will get my tools to redo your stitches… again.”
With a defeated sigh Jackie returns to bed, hissing and wincing as his body plops on the soft cushion. Before Henrik can walk away, Jackie grabs his arm. “I— I just wanted to say thanks… I-I don’t think I say it enough. I’m glad I don’t have to do this by myself anymore.”
Henrik blinks in surprise, this… this was new. Without realizing it, a soft grateful smile found its way to his lips and the doctor ruffles Jackie’s hair. Despite him being one of the first egos being created, he sure acted like a child. “You are more than welcome, mein freund. It is good I can be of help, but please listen to what the good doctor says and you will recover faster.”
“Aye, aye captain.” Jackie says with a chuckle, now watching the doctor walk away. Yeah… it felt way better to have someone by his side to get through this…
