Gundam IBO Fic: In which Yamagi is injured and Shino takes care of him.
Title: Nearly | AO3
Prompt: Shino takes care of an injured Yamagi after the Dort 3 workers rebellion.
A/N: Sorry this (and everything else) took forever. This isn’t my best work but writer’s block and this cough is a bitch.
The injury isn’t serious. Or at least that’s what Yamagi keeps trying to tell him.
Shino’s not buying it though, and it’s not only because the smaller boy, grower weaker from the gradual blood loss, is leaning heavily against him as they push their way through the chaotic sea of soldiers shouting orders and pedestrians screaming for help, smoke and flames smoldering from vehicles and shop fronts.
He’s bleeding profusely — a stray shot from either the worker rebels or Gjallarhorn forces that has pierced through his left shoulder, leaving a growing patch of red turning maroon turning almost-black on his jacket. It keeps spreading and spreading.
Shino’s seen worse than this — they both have, to the point where it almost feels like it’s something they’ve grown strangely used to — but Yamagi is his friend and why won’t the blood fucking stop?
“Just hold on tight, okay, Yamagi? We’re almost there,” he shouts for his voice to carry even though they’re so close, even though the blond is practically in his embrace and Shino has to wrap a protective arm around Yamagi’s much slighter frame against the panicked crowd crashing against them like waves in a storm. He’s not sure where ‘there’ is, exactly, but it sounds like the right thing to say anyway.
