Worst Patient on the Enterprise
The title pretty much says it all. A fluffy fic revolving around Bones being known as “the worst patient on the Enterprise.”
You were woken up at three in the morning to a hacking cough. You weren’t particularly surprised since he’d been coughing ever since he’d traveled down to a new planet two days ago.
“Leonard,” you mumbled sleepily as you turned over opening your eyes a little to see him sitting up coughing.
His coughing stopped for a minute, but another fit came on before he could say anything. You reached over and rubbed his back as you sat up.
“Do you need to go to Med Bay?” you asked.
“I’m fine.” He shook his head as he got up and got a drink of water.
“That cough says otherwise. It’s getting worse.”
“It’s fine. It’s just a cough. Nothing I can’t handle.” He got back into bed and laid down.
You sighed as you laid back down. “Come here,” you gestured him closer until his head was resting on the bottom of your chest. “Please get an exam in the morning.” You rubbed his arm gently as you felt his breathing steady as he fell asleep, occasionally coughing in his sleep. You closed your eyes, your thumb continuing to rub his shoulder mindlessly as you drifted back to sleep.
