“Well, someone has to serve the country without being blown up by the sight of a bomb” he said while clenching his jaw as he was put up the transfusion equipment. He nodded and watched her while she nursed the wounds on the fallen soldier. “Shoot” he muttered sarcastically while looking up at her, arching an eyebrow. “I’m Damon” he said with a little sigh, canting his head ever so slightly to the side “It is nice to meet you Abigail” he added just for good measure, a smirk on his face.
Abigail smiled a bit and ran her fingers through her hair. “It is lovely to meet you, Damon.”she said. “I’ll make sure your friend knows you saved his life.” She put her hands on her hips, “Most men here are not so lucky. And I can’t save them. Spirits do not hold their sway in a graveyard like this. Sometimes it feels like a black hole here.”she finished wrapping the man’s wounds before removing the needle from Damon’s arm. “Hopefully this war will end soon.”she said softly.
He helped her over and in to the cot, laying him down on the bed. He watched her and sat down on the chair she pulled out for him, narrowing his eyes slightly at the transfusion equipment. He’d never liked needles. He scrunched his nose up ever so slightly but pulled up the sleeve of his dirty shirt. He looked up at the nurse when she talked again, just barely nodding. Of course he could have just given some blood and he would be fine, but then again how could men that were badly hurt suddenly just walk around like nothing happened. Therefor Damon brought him here…it was safer for both of them anyways. “Yeah, I know…are you going to take some blood now?” he asked while canting his head ever so slightly to the side.
“Well it isn’t every day I get to see a Vampire on the battlefield.”she said. She took hold of Damon’s arm and hooked him up to the transfusion equipment. “Can I ask you some questions? Since you are rather tangled up at the moment?”she asked. As his blood began to transfuse into the unconscious soldier she cleaned and patched up his wounds. She knew they wouldn’t remain open for too much longer since he was being exposed to vampire blood, but it was for show. Besides the man needed to think he was still pretty injured. “My name is Abigail.”she said.
He looked up at her again and helped her up with the man. Damon arched both eyebrows and helped her with the man over to the tent. The blood didn’t really affect him any longer, he’d grown used to it and he feed from the dying solders when he was hungry. As they walked he looked over at her, narrowing his eyes but nodded. “Wouldn’t mind at all” He said with a little secret smirk as they came in to the medicine tent. His eyes wandered over all the wounded people and then back at the blonde nurse. “Where do you want him?” He asked while arching an eyebrow, looking down at her.
Abigail gestured briefly to an empty cot. “There should be good.”she said before helping the injured man onto the bed. she pulled his legs onto it so he could lay down. She pulled a chair over for Damon to sit and nudged him to sit before dragging over some blood transfusion equipment. “Roll up your sleeve.”she said before closing the curtain for some privacy. She gave the man a shot of morphine before crossing her arms. “He would have died if you hadn’t brought him in sooner.”she said.
Damon’s raven hair was maybe black before, but now when his whole face was covered in dirt and ash, it was even darker. His piercing blue eyes standing out like start on a clear night. He carried a man on his back, already now knowing he would most probably not survive. His foot was half capped of, the vein on his left wrist was bleeding badly. He ran as fast as he could while the man was trying to hold on with his free and healthy hand.
When he reached the medical tent, he looked around for someone that could help. “Hello? Help, someone” He called out while gently laying the man down on the ground. He smiled reassuringly down at the dying man, wiping his forehead with the back of his hand. “You are making this…you are getting through this” He said to reassure both himself and the one on the ground. He pushed the iron helmet back on his head and looked up and around, spotting a nurse. “Hey, you, come here” He said and the blonde, waving both his hands to get her attention.
Abigail was minding her own business enjoying the night air when her attention was dragged in a different direction. She saw two soldiers one on the ground. She rushed over of course, she was a nurse after all. “Help me get him inside.”she said. She wasn’t exactly the strong enough to carry the man. She stared at the dark haired soldier as she felt a cold sensation run up her spine. Right then she knew he was a vampire. “He’s lost a lot of blood.”she said. “He is gonna need a transfusion.”she grabbed his arm and pulled it over her shoulder so she could pull him upright. She didn’t mind the man bleeding all over her and such. It could be worse.
“You are gonna be fine.”she reassured the man. She hadn’t exactly seen any vampires lurking around this war. Though she wasn’t really surprised. War was a good way to get away with killing people without there being too much suspicion. “Hope you are ready to tap a vein soldier. Your friend here could use all the blood he can get.”she looked at the blue-eyed stranger.
