Multiple Uses For Aspirin: FanFiction
He was an army medic once- Hadn’t gone off of that for a while, but that didn’t mean he had forgotten any of his training. The most important thing he had learned from his experience was how to keep calm and carry on- even in the worst situation.
Just replace the puddles of ink with the enemy in his mind, and everything else just became second nature to him. He wasn’t banged up enough that he had to worry about anything else yet- though a quick review wouldn’t hurt the situation either, especially since his traveling companion wasn’t as trained in medical field as he was.
“Splints and tourniquets-?” Bendy echoed, “Which ones which again?”
“Splints are for broken bones, tourniquets are only when you can’t stop the bleeding.” Henry replied, as he searched the floors for anymore searchers. “You could probably use a belt to secure both.”
“… It’s been a while, but I’m sure I’ll remember when I need to.” There was a pause. “IF I need to.”
“Well, I’d like to know for sure in case I need to patch you up! A torn off leg is an easy fix for a Toon, not a person!” The ink demon frowned, pacing the length of his page.
“You’d probably need both of those things for a torn off leg- depending on how cleanly the leg was torn off.” Henry mused, “and a lot of aspirin.”
“Aspirin?” Pac-man eyes blinked curiously.
Henry couldn’t help but laugh a little, before he reached into his pocket and withdrew a packet of small, white pills. They had been used by Henry as a blood thinner, per a home remedy, and was surprised that he hadn’t lost them yet during the struggles. It was around this time that he couldn’t help but be thankful for still having them.
“It’s medicine- It has a couple of uses, but it’s mainly for slight pain and headaches.” The creator explained, sliding one out of its pack and into his hand for Bendy to see.
Carefully, Henry set his ax aside, and cracked one pill in half twice. He then swallowed the three bigger halves, leaving only a tiny piece behind. It was then offered up to the drawing.
“I’m not sure if this will help you any, but it might.”
With a deep breath, he watched Bendy eye the piece with an uncertain expression. Then the toon slipped off of his page and into a nearby puddle of ink. In a few seconds, the pill piece was swallowed, and Bendy was quickly returned to his page, seemingly shaken by something.
“You’re getting better at staying in control.” Henry noted, as he figured that was what was bothering his friend.
“GAH! Henry, I’ve got bigger things to worry about! Aspirin tastes terrible!” Bendy cried, wiping his mouth with the back of his hand. “Got a pill in that pocket that makes horrible tastes go away!?”
There was no prior training needed to know when it was okay to laugh at your situation. Army Medic or ink demon, a light hearted situation was the perfect one to laugh in. So that’s what the did.
