Requested by anonymous who wanted a Star Trek into Darkness imagine, so I decided to do the love of my life, Leonard “Bones” McCoy, because he’s bae.
“Miss Y/L/N, please prepare for our prisoner,” Spock commanded. You began working on the configurations for the cell he would be kept in, making sure it was as contained as possible.
“Cell is ready, sir.”
You began walking down towards the cell block to meet the Captain with the prisoner.
“Ah, Y/N, you’re here,” Kirk said. You nodded and smiled at your long time friend. You felt eyes on you, and turned to look at Leonard, who usually did stare at you, but saw he was looking angrily at the prisoner. You turned and saw that the prisoner was eyeing you. You noticeably shuddered and he smiled slightly.
“Are we all set, Miss Y/L/N?” Spock asked.
“Yes,” you said as you made your way to the cell. You pressed a couple of buttons on the command station. “It’s ready.”
“Thanks, Y/N,” Kirk said. You smiled at him and made eye contact with the prisoner accidentally. Leonard was walking towards the cell to check the prisoner but he stopped by you while they were getting him settled in.
“Are you okay?” he whispered as he lightly touched your hand. Leonard loved you and you knew that, but he wouldn’t be inappropriate around the captain and commander, even though Jim wouldn’t of cared.
“Yes,” you said uncertainly. Leonard still looked concerned so you gave his hand a squeeze. “I’ll be fine, Leonard.” Even though you weren’t so sure. The prisoner was still eyeing you hungrily and all you wanted to do was escape into Leonard’s big, strong arms.
“Y/N, is it?”
You turned towards the cell and saw the prisoner, John Harrison, standing up against the glass. You didn’t answer but stepped a little bit closer, considering him.
“Shy?” he asked.
“She’s not here to talk to you, Harrison. She’s here to make sure you stay in your place,” Jim interrupted.
“Certainly, I wouldn’t want to upset the poor girl with her boyfriend standing so close,” he said with an evil smirk.
“Excuse me?” you asked, getting angry this time.
“Oh look, the mouse has a voice.”
“Doctor, he’s ready for his inspection,” you said, turning away from him.
Bones began taking blood from Harrison, and you could see the anger he held towards the man.
“No need to be upset, Doctor. The girl has her eyes on something better, it’s alright to be a little bit jealous.”
“Bones,” Jim came up and placed a hand on his shoulder. Leonard relaxed a little bit and let go of his arm.
“Y/N. Be careful, your boyfriend is a little bit temperamental-”
“Shut up, dammit!” you swore. “You don’t get to talk here, Harrison. You’re our prisoner, we make the rules, you follow them and shut the hell up,” you said, finally losing your temper.
“She’s correct, Harrison,” Jim said.
“My name is Khan,” he stated simply, going to sit down.
“Good, we’re done here,” Jim said, looking at you. He motioned for you to follow him. He walked out into a hallway, far away from the cell block and stopped.
“Captain, I’m sorry. I know I was out of line back there.”
“Don’t be sorry, Y/N, we were all thinking it. I think he’s trying to get to us, I think he already has.” You nodded. “There was just one more thing I wanted to discuss with you.”
“What’s that, Jim?”
“’Shut up, dammit’?” Jim asked quoting you. You looked at him and smiled, knowing where he was going with this.
“What?” you asked/whined.
“You sound just like him,” he joked with you as he began walking again.
“I do not!” you argued, smiling yourself.
“’Dammit’? Come on, Y/N, that’s what Bones says all the time. You’ve been spending too much time together!” he joked, and you punched his arm.
“I don’t see him complaining much,” you said.
“No, I don’t either. He’s much happier than I have ever seen him before. He’s crazy about you, Y/N. I see it every time he looks at you. With Khan today, I thought he was gonna murder him,” he said lovingly. “But, I do think you have been spending too much time together,” he joked again.
“Who have you been spending too much time with?”
You turned around and saw Leonard. It was then that you noticed you were close to the Med Bay.
“You,” Jim said, excusing himself into Med Bay to flirt with nurses, probably. Leonard raised an eyebrow at you. You walked towards him and wrapped your arms around him. He did the same but still looked at you questioningly.
“Earlier, with Khan, I said ‘shut up-’”
“’Dammit.’” Bones finished for you. “That was cute.” You laughed and rolled your eyes. You stiffened a bit, thinking about Khan, Leonard took notice, ever the doctor. “I’m not gonna let him hurt you, Y/N. I’m not gonna let him hurt us.” You looked back up at Leonard and smiled, snuggling into his chest.
“Thank you, Leo,” you said as he placed a kiss on your head.
