Comfort and Concern 1/6  
For this prompt on Trek Kink:

"Kirk/Spock: Spock notices how concerned and affectionate Kirk gets whenever he gets hurt, so he starts deliberately putting himself in harm's way (and/or pretending to be hurt/ill) so that he gets to experience it more often."

On A03


The first time it happened it was an accident.

The sickbay doors hissed open just before Spock reached them. Kirk exited and then stopped.

“Spock!” The captain said with a smile. “What brings you down here?”

“There was an accident in the labs. I suffered minor chemical burns. I will submit a full report on it as soon as possible, Captain.”

“Minor burns? Why are you letting me stop you? C’mon!” He rushed back into sickbay. “Bones!”

“Knock off your holleren’ ya lout!” The harried Doctor McCoy charged out of his office. “You’ve been gone thirty seconds even you can’t manage to get hurt that fast!”

“Not me. Spock!”

“Spock’s hurt?” The doctored was alarmed.

“Only minor chemical burns, Doctor.” Spock replied from behind Kirk.

“Well what-cha botherin’ me for?” McCoy turned back towards his office. “Get a nurse!”

“But Bones!” Jim whined. “It’s Spock!”

McCoy turned back around. That was a mistake. Jim stared at him with his pretty blue puppy dog eyes.

Bones mumbled something unintelligible before grumbling. “Get your hobgoblin on bed then.”

Spock pushed the satisfaction at being called the Captain’s hobgoblin down. “Your presence won’t be necessary, Doctor. A nurse will be more than adequate to-”

“Don’t be ridiculous. I’ll treat those damned burns. Jim will never leave me alone till I do.”

Spock filed this away as something to puzzle over later and moved onto a bed.

The doctor approached and Spock held out his hands. They were green and blistered. Jim gasped.

“You don’t need to hover.” McCoy commented over his shoulder to Kirk as he ran his scanner over the injury. “Spock will be fine.”

“But aren’t Vulcan hands especially sensitive?” Jim was hovering. “That would be agony for a human.”

“I assure you, Captain, there is no need to worry”

“How many times must I tell you? Call me Jim.”

Bones pushed a hypo to Spock’s neck. “Even the Vulcan can take a hypo better than you, Jim!”

“That’s because you’re gentler with everyone else.” Kirk quipped back absently, more concerned with Spock.

McCoy ran the dermal regenerator over Spock’s hands slowly while Jim kept hovering.

“There. Right as rain.”

“Doctor, how can precipitation be right? You are not logical.”

Bones snorted. “Get your hobgoblin out of here, Jim.”

The Captain walked with Spock to his quarters. “Are you sure I can’t get you anything?”

“I do not require anything at this time, Captain.” Spock repeated.

“Okay.” Jim seemed reluctant to leave the doorway. “If you need anything let me know.”

“That is not logical. I was not badly injured. I am more than capable of caring for my own needs.”

“Just let me know.” Jim finally left.

Spock didn’t understand. Humans were so illogical sometimes. But if it was illogical why did he wish the Captain had stayed? He needed to meditate.
