Terrible Ideas (Bones x Reader)
Contains Kirk friendship
Your relationship with Bones was no secret. It was a source of endless teasing from your crewmates, namely Kirk.
You and him were messing around with your phasers, you’d found a way to get the beam to bounce. In hindsight, you probably should have checked to be sure your phasers were set to the lowest setting, but this thought hadn’t occurred to you until a wayward beam caught you in the leg.
You cried out as you went down, clutching the area where you’d been hit.
“Shit, (Y/N)!” Jim cursed as he rushed over to make sure the injury was nothing too serious.
“It’s fine,” you assured, your voice slightly strained. “Just get me to sickbay, yeah?”
“Bones is gonna kill me!” Jim exclaimed, burying his face in his hands.
“That’s nice, but I can’t really get there myself. You can write your last will and testament on the way,” you quipped, gritting your teeth at the sting that racked through your left leg.
He sighed before helping you up and slinging your arm over his shoulder.
Slowly, you made your way over to sickbay.
“Jim, what the hell?” You heard your boyfriend shout before you even processed that the doors had opened.
“It’s fine, Leo,” you tried to calm him down.
“Fine? Are you freaking crazy? There’s a hole in your leg!” He insisted, gesturing to the wound.
“I’m sorry, is this coming from the man who told me to stop being so melodramatic after I was dead?” Jim said, quirking his brow.
“Mostly dead,” Bones corrected. “And that’s not the point.” He quickly guided you over to a station, scanning your wound with a tricorder. “How did this happen anyway?”
Jim started to explain. “Well, we found out how to get phaser beams to bounce and-”
“And must have sounded like a wonderful, safe, foolproof idea, right?” Bones remarked dryly.
“Well, no, but… Anyway, it started as a game, but she got hurt.”
“Of course she did,” Bones said, finishing up treating the wound, then swatted his arms in Jim’s direction. “Out, out! Consider yourself temporarily banished.”
Jim sighed in relief, glad that he had avoided the smackdown of the century.
“Don’t think this is over!” He heard Bones call after him. He gulped and proceeded to speedwalk out of sickbay.
Bones then turned to you. “I’m pretty sure you know what I’m about to say.”
“That was incredibly dangerous, don’t do anything that stupid again, I thought I raised you better,” you said, in your best ‘Leonard McCoy, Angry Southerner Extraordinaire’ voice.
“Damn straight,” he smirked, sitting next to you on the examination table. He pulled you into his side and kissed your temple. He trailed kisses down your cheek until he reached the corner of your mouth.
You turned your head slightly and met his lips full on, your hands going to his chest.
When you pulled away, you smirked up at him. “This will never work out,” you teased.
“Excuse me?” Leonard said incredulously.
“If this is how it ends, I’m going to be tempted to do stupid things all the time.”
