Lily hissed from the pain of the many wounds along her body, she looked weakly to Tregor when she felt her face being wiped and cleaned from the blood. “F-Fucking hell..” She muttered out as she felt the gauze pad go over her torso’s wounds. She couldnt hear the words coming out of Tregor’s mouth, she was too focused on the pain pulsing through her body.
Tregor worked quickly to wash out the cuts unsure of how much blood Lily had lost Tregor wasn’t going to take any chances. “OK this is going to sting,” she warned taking out a bottle of alcohol and soaking a cotton swab. She gently dabbed the alcohol drenched cotton ball onto the cuts on Lily’s skin. Some of them could be bandaged but a lot would need stitches hopefully, whatever did this to her didn’t leave anything embeded under the skin. “How did this happen?”
Lily groaned in pain once the alcohol swab rubbed on her wounds. She was in huge ammounts of pain, wanting to belt out scream after scream, but she found she couldnt, as it hurt to make a single word with her mouth. She looked to Tregor again in hopes that she would figure out that it hurt her to speak, she could feel the blood being wiped away from her torso, she didnt dare look to it as she probably wouldnt much like the sight.
Tregor kept working to clean out the wounds, but it wouldn’t be enough, with the number of cuts, Lily was going to need anitbiotics to prevent an infection. Pulling out a needle and thread she began stitching up the largest cut first, “Just try to relax, there’s not time for seditives, to kick in you’ve lost too much blood.”
Tregor looked over Lily her eyes furrowed with concern, “You’re too weak to move on your own..” Tregor picked up her radio and opened the chanel to headquarters, “HQ this is private Tregor, calling for an evac for ….”
Tregor’s words were interupted, “Private Tregor you better have a damn good reason for calling an evac on a simple recon mission.” the conlonel’s voice boomed over sounds of central HQ in the background.”
"Ah shit." Tregor sighed and closed her eyes before responding, "Yes Sir Colonel, a very good reason, Luitenant Lucario has been critcally wounded sir."
"Private Tregor just how did this happen?"
"We were ambushed sir, well she was ambushed I was coming up the rear and I found her like this." her voice shook and cracked slightly she knew she’d be held responsible.
The Colonel’s voice dropped low and he refrained from losing his temper to a degree, “Private Tregor you had one assignment and that was to ensure Luitenant Lucario remained safe and unwounded until we found her the agent that will prevent any further mutation in her cells. Now do what you were trained to do Private, before evey cut in her body mutates into something inhuman!”
"Sir we don’t actually know if.."
“Private Tregor unless you plan on spending the rest of your service in the state’s finest military prison I suggest you listen to my orders!”
She fought the urge to scream over the radio at her commanding officer, she took a heavy breath and gritted her teeth, “Yes sir but we still need an evac forty percent of her body is covered is cuts what’s left is bruised, sir I don’t even think she can speak.”
The sound of the Colonel’s fist slamming into the desk could be heard over the radio, and it seemed to silence the normally loud headquarters, “DAMNIT Private tell me you at least found the agent?”
"N-no sir, it wasn’t even here, from what I found it’s been shipped off to an Eastern satelite location." She threw down the radio and focused her attention back to Lily.
Tregor bit her lip in silence and frantically stiched up Lily’s wounds she was unsure if the mutation really would spread easier through the open wounds, but she didn’t want to take any chances. “Is he for real, can that really happen?” Her questions would have to wait until later Lily needed a hostpital, “Nevermind save it you need every bit of strength.”
The radio cackled finally breaking the silence, “Private Tregor prepare Luitenant Lucario for evac, ETA ten minutes.” The voice over the radio had changed, “The Colonel is probably on his way to evac you two personally. I suggest you prepare yourself.”
"DAMNIT." Tregor’s composure was slowly melting away, with a heavy sigh she picked the radio back up, "Copy." She finished stiching up the larger wounds and pulled out bandages to wrap the smaller cuts that were too close together to effieciently cover with gauze and tape. "OK ten minutes just hold on I’m getting you out of here."
