Ivar Imagine #1 | You’re hurt
Author’s Note: Requested by anon, I hope that you feel better soon!=] Rated General, just fluff and cuddles.
Training sessions with the Ragnarssons were intense. You knew they were but you had no idea that Hvitserk, Sigurd and Ubbe would all gang up on you at once. Three against one was hardly fair and you now had the injury to prove it. You groaned as you rubbed your ankle, visibally swelling as the pain began to set in. The entire area was red and purple and protested any time you tried to put weight on it, but you did your best to hide that behind a smile.
“Let me see it,” Ivar demanded but you quickly shook your head no, covering it back up with the blankets. He never complained when he was in pain and you weren’t going to start, either.
“It’s not that bad. I’m fine.”
He rolled his eyes at your stubbornness, tugging the blankets off of you and scooting closer. He pulled your leg into his lap to inspect the area closely, running his thumb across the bruised bone. You hissed from the pressure, despite his soft touch, causing his frown to deepen.
“You’re not training with them without me anymore.” You wanted to argue but you knew it was pointless, Ivar would win, anyway. “Keep off of it for a few days. Let the swelling go down and if it’s still not better by then we will call for the healer.” You nodded once again, staring helplessly at the ankle that had betrayed you.
“What am I suppose to do if I can’t walk?”
Ivar shrugged his shoulders as he propped your leg up on a few pillows. Not a moment later he was tugging off his tunic and boots, lying down next to you in the large bed.
“Come here,” he opened his arms. You wanted to say no, to keep trying to convince him that you were fine, but his bare chest did look inviting. The want to fight with him vanished when he to pulled you onto him, his hands immediately running through your hair to soothe you. “We can worry about that later. For now, let’s just sleep. Okay?” You sighed, shifting to slot your face into the crook of his warm neck.
