5th June: A dressing that isn't salad

Post  Mathew De Guarde on Fri Jul 22, 2011 7:03 am

A patter of feet announced the arrival of the young former middie. Skipping the last step the lad made his way to the sick berth as quick as he could. He ducked around several Tars and then entered the domain of their surgeon.

Without needing to be told, he advanced to the cupboard where some strips of bandages were kept, neatly folded and stored away. These he placed on the table in neat array then looked about to collect more of the artickles that the surgeon might need.

He wiped the tools clean again, though he doubted any of them would be used on Seward. The saw he would not mind seeing hack at his limb but a lashed flesh did not need to have limbs removed. A pity, really. Atleast what that man was concerned. He mulled over what young Terry had said and wondered whom he had meant when he said it was not him who had been hurt. He frowned. It made less sense, the longer he thought about it.

"S' ready! Anythin' else we's need for t' flayed skin?"He called out, placing one of the surgeon's tools neatly back into its box.

"Nothin' but a bandage," Seward growled, shuffling into the sick-berth and settling down onto the cleared table. This was not at all the first time he had suffered through post-flogging treatment but this bit never got any easier.

The sawbones tutted. "No, that will do. Dip a cloth for me, would you?"

"Can't we have salt water on him, sir?" De Guarde asked passing by Seward as he hefted the bucket filled with water closer to dip a cloth in. "..jus' fer wounds." He added careful not to splash water on the floor though he would not have minded it dropping heftily onto one of Seward's toes. He'd have done it, if it weren't too obvious.

The sawbones sounded amused. "It is what is used anyway," he told the boy.

"Oh, right sir." De Guarde did not only dip the cloth however but had it rather thick with water before he lifted it to the surgeon. Water was dripping from the cloth. "May I try too, sir?" He asked, appearing an eager student to the messy job of a surgeon.

"Carefully."

Seward curled his hands into white-knuckled fists. He was going to gut the boy after this. And happily!

De Guarde could barely contain a grin. He nodded quickly and shuffled closer to the flogged man. He held the cloth above the marks close to Seward's shoulder blades and squeezed it so that water came running down the exposed back.

He waited for a few moments, dipped down to soak the cloth again only the second time carefully dabbed the cloth against the bloodied flesh, drawing it across to wipe some of the blood away.

Yes, Seward thought viciously, he was going to skewer this little brat and carve him up so he could wear his innards as a hat. And that would still not be what the foul creature deserved!

Mathew , quite innocently, pressed into the wound, squeezing the water directly into the flesh there. He wiped more blood again and dipped the cloth into the water. He hummed a tune to himself, happy about his present job. It offered so many opportunities.

"Don't move, " He murmured. He drew the moistened cloth across Seward's wounded back. He was doing his job, he was only somewhat too thorough with it. And slower, but this he could excuse as being inexperienced easily.

Oh, he wasn't moving. Even though, right then, his dearest wish was to get off the table and turn this little pig turd inside out.

"Don't make a meal of it," the sawbones remarked, glancing over from where he was noting down the patient's name, injury, and allotted treatment into his log.

"Yes, sir." De Guarde continued, wiping the man's back quite thoroughly of blood and having the wounds well washed with the sea water. One thing was clear. Seward's wounds would not get infected and he would not be leaving any blood about. "Sir.. do we need ter have vinegar on 'im after this?" He asked, not knowing if that came to be in the process of cleaning as well, or well the other process of mending. Or was there alcohol which could come next.

"Mhm? Ah. No. There is little enough chance of infection after such a complete soaking as you've given. Dab it all dry and I'll lay the dressings."

"Yes sir. Right away." De Guarde lowered the wet cloth and moved to fetch himself a dry one. He waited for a few moments before he began to dab the cloth against the wounds, pressing in to take all of the water away. He tugged the cloth free where it stuck to the flayed skin, though did this so it was clear that it was not done with poor intent.

"Is he going to remain here, sir? Or be sent to his mess after we's done?"

God, Seward thought, let it be the latter.

The sawbones chuckled. "He'll be returned to his mess, of course. He was flogged, my lad, not wounded."

De Guarde looked disappointed. "But he will have to return so that his dressings are changed, won't he?" He asked looking quite innocent. "So that it does not get infected or worse." He moved to get the bandages closer to the surgeon, holding a strip up to him, if he would need it. Eager to assist not only because it caused Seward discomfort, but also to learn more and do a good job.

A'right." The boy answered eagerly and then handed another strip of cloth to the surgeon, helping wherever the surgeon would allow him, and where he could not, he still paid good attention to what was being done. Untill his duties with the surgeon were finished and he could return to full service again, with no aches and pains to bother his gait, he intended to do as well as he could in the assisting of the surgeon. It was a bit of a change from his usual, where he had disliked doing things or from the very beginning when becoming a Tar was far too lowly for his station.

"s' not so bad, is it?" He indicated the marks that were there, and studied those that did not appear as fresh. He had not seen a flogged man, whose wounds had healed so well that a mark would not remain behind them. "Sir, does young skin heal cleaner n' old?" What he meant to ask really was, whether scars on young skin could disappear, but not on old or whether it did not matter. He knew from personal experience that atleast some scars would not disappear, but was this due to not being given the time, because of their frequency or was it perhaps because such was the law of nature? Would all cuts leave a mark, or were there some that would not?

"Seward. You be learnin' from this now." He murmured much more quietly, this directed to the man. "Leave us 'lone."

"Enlighten me." De Guarde murmured in reply. He studied the back, which was well cared for. Not exactly the intention as much as the consequence of the thorough washing it had gotten. The cloth he had used was bloody, and so was the water, that now waited in the bucket to be emptied over the side. The lad had wiped his hands dry and clean when he began assisting the surgeon with the clean cloth.

After all of this a good mug of drink would not go amiss. Several, if he was dismissed till the next day. He could curl up somewhere in the sick berth after, to be out of the way, sight and safely tucked in or he could sleep elsewhere, but still make sure he was not found until sober. He would think of that later, now his mind had to be on the dressing and finishing thereof of that.

To that, Seward made no answer. He was already set upon a course of retaliation and there wasn't any sense letting the boy become aware of it.

"There," the surgeon said at length, choosing to overlook the hushed conversation between the two. "That will do now." He tied a knot in the last turn of bandage and dusted his hands off.

De Guarde looked at the surgeon and though he nodded he felt like frowning. It lasted too little time and the man looked more suspicious than ever. At best, he felt hopeful that other boys would know to keep away from him now. He would not make a scene where everybody could see it. The sneak felt like he might....like he might do worse instead of better. But maybe he was just mistaken and Seward was full of hot air.

He moved away from the table and began cleaning it up, taking away the bandages that had not been needed. "Seems you'm done." He spoke in a more official tone and then seemed to withdraw into his role as a mere loblolly boy again.
