I didn't know.

[The first door they come to opens onto a bedroom that looks empty. As much as one can manhandle someone into a room carefully, that's how Matt does it. He steers Light towards the bed, turns him so he's facing the wall the headboard rests against.]

Lie down, feet on the pillows.

[He doesn't wait to see if Light obeys. He's in too much of a hurry to get to the medicine cabinet. He comes back from the bathroom with every bit of gauze and every towel he can grab.]

[from here.]

[Light has dropped onto the bed as soon as it entered his awareness. It's surprising how much more bearable it all is, with his head resting on a flat surface; the nausea clears almost at once, and he can sleep - except - he knows there's some reason he shouldn't.

It's not Matt's instruction that makes him drag his feet around, but his own knowledge, the same way he knows to lift his wrist above his face. The knuckles rest on his forehead as he drops into unconsciousness.]

No, stay awake.

[The pain will probably bring him back, Matt thinks, but he tries not to cause too much as he lifts Light's arm and assesses the injury. He heard the shot. No bullet, and stopping the bleeding is more important than a thorough cleaning right now. He starts wrapping gauze.]

[The wrist is a mess, to put it in simple terms. The bullet entered on a diagonal; the hand is limp, supported by the outer carpal bones and layers of skin and not much else. There's a line of sight straight through it. Fragments of bone gleam white inside and around shredded meat and nerve bundles, arteries and veins. The circulation to the extremity is close to shutting down, and the whole sorry affair is oozing quietly.

Light doesn't scream again, but his eyes start out of his head, and his good hand tightens in the covers. It's that Matt. He doesn't like Matts, does he? - though he doesn't hate them like he hates Mel, right? The question that escapes is almost sane and coherent.]


... you washed your hands?

Date: 2009-08-27 04:47 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] onlydisappear.livejournal.com
Of course.

[Round and round. The gauze gets soaked through almost as soon as it goes on. Matt just keeps rolling it on until that stops. He's not thinking about how he can't possibly set it or fix it, not with mansion supplies, maybe not at all. He wraps a hand towel around the whole mess and holds pressure on it, and clamps his other hand around Light's elbow.]

What happened? [He wants the who and, most of all, the why.]

Date: 2009-08-27 11:05 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] curtainwizard.livejournal.com
I should've.

[It escapes in a gasp; applying pressure to his own wrist is qualitatively different from having someone else do it. His vision whites out, and traces of that awful, sick laughter hiss out of him again. He screeches for each breath just as if he had a life to lose.]

Mel ... going to kill her. Or maybe she killed me.

[There's blood clotting in his hair, above his right ear; it's annoying. Why does it bother him now?]

We'll clean it later.

[Mel, that girl Mello he's heard about but never met. The one Light had some sort of... something with.]

What did you- Why?

Date: 2009-08-28 12:44 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] curtainwizard.livejournal.com
I was nice to her.

[It's strangely clear; somehow his throat's burning itself dry while his mouth's secreting something sour. His eyes flutter closed, and he swallows. The pain is lulling him; he knows it's dangerous.]

Date: 2009-08-28 12:56 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] onlydisappear.livejournal.com
...I don't think that's why she shot you.

[There's an extra blanket folded at the bottom of the bed. Matt lets go of Light's elbow to get it and drape it over him.]

Can you hold the towel on? You can stay awake long enough for me to go into the bathroom, right?

Date: 2009-08-28 01:04 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] curtainwizard.livejournal.com
Mm-hm. Yah.

[Straining to keep his eyes open - he's tired, very, very tired - Light raises his good hand up ready to take over. It creeps, little by little, crablike.]

Date: 2009-08-28 01:13 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] onlydisappear.livejournal.com
[He lets go and makes sure Light really can before hurrying into the bathroom again, where he grabs painkillers and a glass of water as quickly as possible.]

You have to stay awake. Here, sit up. [Holding out the glass.]

Date: 2009-08-28 01:32 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] curtainwizard.livejournal.com
[As Matt takes his hands away, Light sucks in air with a hiss; it's as bad as the initial pressure had been, and as he takes hold himself, he can feel the closer edges of the wrist collapsing inwards like a PVC pipe. He can't lift himself without letting go of his wrist; his first abortive attempt doesn't get him an inch off the bed.]

Date: 2009-08-28 01:46 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] onlydisappear.livejournal.com
Okay, come on.

[He puts a hand between Light's shoulderblades to sit him up.]

Take these, you'll feel better.

From: [identity profile] curtainwizard.livejournal.com
... what is that?

[Pale, drowsy and slightly clammy, there's no suspicion in his face, which is as good a measure as anything of his condition. He ends up resting against the wall.]

Date: 2009-08-28 01:52 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] onlydisappear.livejournal.com
Percocet, and I'm not taking no for an answer.

Date: 2009-08-28 01:56 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] curtainwizard.livejournal.com
Percocet - that's, what, an opioid?

[His hand's still wrapped around the towel, and his stare's fixed and fraught.]

Date: 2009-08-28 01:59 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] onlydisappear.livejournal.com
Yeah. You can't pass out, and the pain might make you, so.

[Offering the glass more pointedly.]

From: [identity profile] curtainwizard.livejournal.com
[A nod at the glass.]

That might put me to sleep.

[Everything he says rushes out under his breath, hoarse and run together. Tha'mipu'metoslee.]

From: [identity profile] onlydisappear.livejournal.com
It's this or keep hurting.

[He hears voices in the corridor, but doesn't recognize them, and he figures not being found is best.]

Date: 2009-08-28 02:28 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] curtainwizard.livejournal.com
[Light recognises the voices, though: Sayu, and Mikami. His teeth clench, and his head tumbles further down. Doors are rattling outside.]

Tell me you locked the door.

Date: 2009-08-28 02:30 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] onlydisappear.livejournal.com
Naturally.

C'mon, just take one.

Date: 2009-08-28 02:36 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] curtainwizard.livejournal.com
[His thoughts are clearing a little, now that he's upright - but that's bringing the sickening pain back too (and the terror at all its implications, and the blocks to his thoughts, and that's Sayu screaming his name in the corridor, isn't it?) He bites his lip, squeezes tighter on the towel.]

Not the tablets. Can't go off to la-la land now.

[And, taking his hand off the towel, he reaches out to take the glass.]

[Water's better than nothing, though Matt suspects, again, that Light needs more help than he or the mansion can give. He rearranges the blanket to cover him better.]

What really happened?

[He thinks if Light gets mad, he'll stay awake better.]

Date: 2009-08-28 02:55 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] curtainwizard.livejournal.com
Isn't it obvious?

[It's easier to lift the glass than he expected, but harder to swallow. He can see her again, and the gun, and, somewhere almost out of sight, forgotten, he can still see the way they were in the room, still hear the things he told her. How dare she.

Somehow it's wan, pallid; he doesn't have the energy for anger.]

Date: 2009-08-28 02:59 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] onlydisappear.livejournal.com
Not to me. [He rubs at the back of his neck.]

I thought you were, uh. Broken up already.

Date: 2009-08-28 03:06 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] curtainwizard.livejournal.com
Broken - what?

[He does remember some of the odd ideas his child-self has. He doesn't gesture with the glass, or drop it - though as he puts more of the water away, his head's clearing.]

Should be some salt in this. The— [nodding at the arm in the towel, lifting it a little. His eyes and lips jam shut, as he does.]
