Re: The sick bay

Post  George Thompson on Thu Jan 01, 2009 12:23 pm

"Thanks, sir."

Now he really felt like a cripple, but the doctor was right; it would be a lot easier to get around with a crutch. He felt a little stupid, however. He'd only sprained his ankle, and was reduced to hobbling around as though he'd lost a leg.

At least it wouldn't be forever, unlike losing a leg in reality. and that made him pause. "Sir? How... How long is it goin' to to take afore I'm back to normal, sir?"

Post  Thomas Crozier on Thu Jan 01, 2009 12:34 pm

Crozier's mouth tightened into a thin line as he considered. "Well you should try to avoid walking for the next few days, and I'm putting you on light duties and the sick list until then - until Monday. After that, we'll see how you are, but I would say two or three weeks before you're completely recovered." He gave the marine a bluff pat on the back. "Cheer up though. At least you're not marching."

M'Clure was worried, or possibly interested, he wasn't actually sure which.
He Dr Crozier seen that ankle...and had he done the right thing in bandaging it like that?
He knocked diffidently, sticking his head round the door as he did so, eager to find out what had happened.

Post  George Thompson on Thu Jan 01, 2009 12:55 pm

Light duties and the sick list till Monday, which meant no grog. Well, no grog, officially, and no baccy either, though his mates wouldn't begrudge him a bit of either one of those. Two or three weeks... he hoped he'd be able to do at least sentry, if not drill, after Monday. But not marching... Right now, that was a good thing. It hurt too much to even stand on, let alone march on, right now.

"No, sir," he said, agreeing. "An' you want me to come back in an hour, sir?"

And have Mister M'Clure help him back to his berth? "I c'n manage by meself, sir. Don't want to give you extra work," he said, looking from the surgeon to his mate, and biting his lip.

Well, that told him, didn't it?

"Aye, aye, sir," he said, wondering just how embarrassing this was going to be in the end. Falling down a companion ladder and spraining your ankle, then getting a crutch and needing the assistance of the surgeon's mate... His mates weren't going to let him live this one down for a long time.

M'Clure nodded his greeting, noticing the addition of a crutch. "Will help him back, aye sir."

He moved closer to be able to catch the man, gesturing for him to continue to walk. "I'll see him back, in an hour then, sir?"
It was half question half statement, as he fully expected an impatient yes as hi only answer. But it seemed best to check, anyway.

"Yes, M'Clure, thank you, and furthermore, you can change his dressing when you bring him back. You were right in your assessment, a sprained ankle, but I want a warm water dressing - four drops."

Four drops? Four drops of what?

He looked from one to the other and decided a sigh right now would only get him in trouble. Messdeck, then. At least he knew how to use a crutch - you didn't get around very well without one with a broken ankle, after all.

He took a step, then swung the crutch, put his weight on it and hopped forwards. He'd be all right.

(Resumed Friday 19th, morning. Oxley and de Guarde came from here)

Oxley glanced at de Guarde. He couldn't be unlucky enough that they were both heading to the same place... was he?

Dammit. It looked as though he was. Bother it all.

Re: The sick bay

Post  Mathew De Guarde on Tue Jan 20, 2009 8:24 am

De Guarde looked angrily at Oxley. The blasted lad had humiliated him by hanging his clothes where they weren't due to appear. And had him remain completely bare to be discovered so if his luck hadn't held. There was much he could loath about the marine and Oxley might've considered himself lucky that the boy held his tongue so far.

They wouldn't be alone for long, and once the surgeon came to see the both of them standing side by side. Well, he would probably know exactly what happened. Suspect at the very least.

"My slops.."He hissed at Oxley, teeth gritted, voice low, more quiet.

Oxley glanced down. "You'm a-wearin' of 'em," he replied. Though it was a relief that he had been able to get below and find a clean pair.

He hoped that someone had returned his other pair.

He shrugged. Could he apologise to this lad? Did he want to? It would be worth a shot, wouldn't it?

"I'm sorry," he said, awkwardly. Not that he was sorry for what he'd said, of course. But fighting... and what had come after it. Maybe they had gone a bit too far?

Re: The sick bay

Post  Keiju on Tue Jan 20, 2009 8:43 am

Despite barging shamelessly into the conversation between Lieutenant Cartwright and poor Oxley, Andrew Shepherd was feeling remarkably carefree. He followed the other drummer down the ladder, grinning broadly the entire way to the sick-berth.

"Yer slops?" Andrew asked, when the seaman spoke. The Tar was wearing slops now, that was certainly true. And just as well! "I sure 'ope they's yers, boyo."

His smirk shrank just a little when Oxley offered an apology to the Tar, though. What use was there in apologising to such a boy?

Post  Mathew De Guarde on Tue Jan 20, 2009 8:46 am

"'fer what?" De Guarde answered coldly. No amount of 'I'm sorry' could help. He was LUCKY he was found by one rather than the whole crew. Already he had suffered the amount of humiliation that would have sent many to be flogged a good deal of times, if he were a midshipman. And some that would hang.. for the 'assault'.

" Yer think a sorry will cut it'?" He asked, his voice in hushed whisper, but angry and sharp. "m' shirt, m' belt.. m' slops. don' ye play dumb." His hands were balled in fists, and it took every ounce of strength that he didn't jump at the marine, taking on his revenge right there.

His looked at the other marine, his glare still on his face. Right. He'd been so angry he near forgot that marine was there too. Was he involved in this, or was he just 'the backup' of the other marine. The smirk indicated something, but what, he wasn't sure.

"yer not injured, so yer not need in 'ere!"

Oxley shrugged. No, an apology was not going to cut it. Ah well.

"Someone's took 'em down. Best ask Cob Chase; I din't see where they went." He scowled. "An' just you stop tellin' folks where they can an' can't be." Or he'd get worse than what he'd already received, and probably from a full-grown sailor.

At least de Guarde had lashed out first, which was something in Oxley's defence if they were dragged up before their respective officers.

"He ain't an' you've no right to tell him he's slackin' off." Oxley was leaning on the bulkhead watching the younger boy. He had a real problem with his temper, this one did, and it was going to get him into trouble sooner or later. But did he know that, and if he knew it, did he care?

Andrew folded his arms across his chest, already settling in for the chance of an argument.

"What'd you know 'bout slackin' off, then? Proper Tars knows 'ow t'work, but you don't."

"He ain't slackin' off? Correct me if I'm wrong. .but I don' see t' need for him ter stand no guard here.. n' surely he ain' doin' no drill neither."

His temper boiled as it had in the night, when he and Oxley had fought till the fateful strike below his waist. How dare the marine tell him what he did not know. Thompson was a fine man, but these two were worse than the Tars. And they were two. But they knew that the surgeon would come at any moment, for he had been gone to be fetched by his 'assistant'.

"I know that yer doin' no good 'ere. I know that yer only wastin' t' space n' t' air in this room. Though I suspect now.. that it may jus' be what's t' only thing ye know how ter do. ..'fcourse it may be.. "His eyes were briefly on Oxley. " Yer need him up 'round , so that 'tleast one of ye is found thinkin'... as foul and poorly at that!"

His voice was laced with spite, venomous with its tone:" I know how ter work, n' unlike yeselves , who need only t' stand 'round lookin 'pretty in red,.. we'um actually doin' a job. A job that's keepin t' likes of you safe n' all warm n' pampered... n' while t' two of you would be tremblin' ye knees off, with fear..I can, and do know how ter do work where's high n' dangerous. Not stay like a chicken'.. down 'ere! Peckin' at t' grain dropped by ye officer."

And Heaven help de Guarde if he tried anything down here - the surgeon was going to come out any minute now.

Re: The sick bay

Post  Mathew De Guarde on Tue Jan 20, 2009 10:22 am

Though he'd been well on his mouth, De Guarde was no fool to strike now. He knew that the surgeon would be there soon. he knew that Mr. Leat would find it most obscure if the boy with one black eye returned with another later. Especially once he and Oxley had gone down the same companionway together.

He even kept his tone down as much as he could. " They did teach me not to steal." He eyed Oxley meaninfully. The two boys - of what he'd known only about one - stole his belongings and hung them up. Though he had intentions that may cause him to sound like a hypocrate, he thought it right to accuse Oxley of theft and no manners at all, or the ability to know what was right and wrong. Perhaps they have again, taken to stand.. on the very wrong foot, with hostilies running wild between them.

This Tar was a rare one, wasn't he? Didn't know the first thing about what he was talking about but thought he did. Seemed to think he was fit to give orders on top of it.

Andrew scoffed, his expression disdainful. "Like t'know whatcha'd do if us Marines wasn't 'ere. Ain't a Tar I knows that'd stand sentry fer 'ours, an' be reliable in it!" He shook his head. "La-de-da, lissen ta 'im. 'E were taught not t'steal. Din't teach 'im not t'insult 'is betters, though, did they?"
