QUOTE:
"Get these two to the sickbay," he orders the nurses, “The debriefing can wait until they’re not about to pass out.” They huddle around Spock and Jim to get them up and moving. Leonard sighs, turns to Uhura, who looks as bleak and worried as Leonard feels. "They'll be fine," he assures her, able to breathe again, to think something other than dammit Jim, I'm a doctor not a necromancer. "They both took some heavy hits, but there's no internal bleeding and all the broken bones can be set easily enough. They're not exactly going to be barrels of sunshine anytime soon, but they’ll live.”

Uhura lets out a long breath, slumps. "I really don't envy you sometimes, Dr. McCoy," she says.
"Oh?" he asks. "Why's that?"

Uhura gives him a long, knowing look that makes heat travel up the back of Leonard's neck. Jesus Christ, she's nearly ten years younger than him. Since when was he surrounded by babies who could outthink him and dress him down like he was the toddler?

Uhura's look softens with amusement, a touch of a smile at the corner of her mouth. "Spock's usually okay," she says. "So I've never really had cause to worry about him. But I think that's less because he's Vulcan and more because Kirk takes the brunt of the damage."

"Because he's a goddamn fool," Leonard says. The nurses are bustling Spock and Jim out of there and he moves to follow them, focus snapping back into place. Uhura stops him with a touch to the elbow. 

"You know, the captain always talks about you when he's injured," she says. "He kept babbling on about how you were going to kill him for breaking his promise before he passed out.
 
Leonard swallows around the lump in his throat. Goddamn idiot. Who worries about a promise they made weeks ago when they're half-killed?

WHY I LIKE THAT FIC:
What a lovely h/c fic with a Bones voice that is sooo spot-on. I love seeing Bones all grumpy, exasperated and worried over Kirk. Loved the protectiveness and tenderness, too. And the pining. :D The interaction between Kirk and Bones and all of the crew were sweet and adorable. And Kirk panicking when Bones gets injured? Priceless. A highly enjoyable read with lots of h/c feels.
