[closed log] Hospital visit  
Who: Gaara and Sakura
Where: The Hospital
What: Sakura splits her head open and Gaara meets her at the hospital after calling her an ambulance.
Warning: Angry Gaara and a drunken Sakura

Gaara paid the cab and jogged into the front entrance, he wasn't worried...honest. He would just prefer it if Sakura hadn't died. The woman behind the front desk looked at him over her glasses when he asked if she'd been brought in, it was obvious that she thought he was a high school student. After a staring contest she caved, no one beat Gaara at staring contests, and rang up to find out, she was here, she was alive and currently sitting in a bed in the ER.
After another, much shorter, glare-off she caved and directed Gaara to the right curtain.

With just a little trepidation because it wasn't often Gaara had to deal with drunken women, he opened the curtain revealing the bandaged pink-wonder. "Hi."
Gaara: worriedgaarathegreat on September 17th, 2008 01:21 pm (UTC)
"Feeling better?" Gaara asked awkwardly as he edged into the little curtained cubicle, the nurse who was finishing up with Sakura looked harassed and twitchy and promptly left the room.

The red head hovered by the bed with his hands stuffed deep in his pocket, unsure exactly what he should do but feeling pretty relieved now he knew his first friend wasn't dead.
Gaara: glaregaarathegreat on September 17th, 2008 01:33 pm (UTC)
A blush rose on Gaara's cheeks, it was kind of Sakura to say such things..."are you still drunk?" He muttered but stopped when the curtain opened and an older looking gentleman in a white coat entered the cubicle.

He said nothing because he wasn't being spoken to, he just crossed his arms and waited for the verdict from the doctor.
Gaara: glaregaarathegreat on September 17th, 2008 02:03 pm (UTC)
Gaara glared at the doctor who seemed to be assuming that he would be the one keeping this idiot company, like he really didn't have anything else to do that day. There was the paper work and then preparations for the party. He woud just have to do it at home he supposed.

The red heads forehead twitched at the drunken idiot who was busy pulling faces behind the doctors back, Gaara tried very hard to ignore them until eventually he just glared her into submission and crossed his arms.
"Fine. Do we need to fill anything in or can I...we leave now?" He turned his glare on the doctor and waited for a response.
Gaaragaarathegreat on September 17th, 2008 02:11 pm (UTC)
"...no." Gaara sighed and sat down gracefully in the arm chair by the bed, propping his head up on his fist. He would call a cab, stop by work so he can grab some papers and then head straight home. Sakura could entertain herself with something for the afternoon and he could finish his work at the coffee table.

"I'll make you some toast at mine. You need to sober up."
Gaaragaarathegreat on September 17th, 2008 02:29 pm (UTC)
As Sakura dressed, regardless of his presence Gaara turned away politely, she was drunk and he didn't want to take advantage. Not that the nakedness bothered him, nakedness had never really bothered Gaara, it was just flesh and hair in the end.

He did note the state of the shirt and made a mental not to offer her one of his... or rather one of Lee's as he predicted that none of his clothes would fit the taller buxom female. Gaara took the sheets and led Sakura down the hall to the reception and the front door.
"You've been here under half hour, I'd hardly call that captivity. Get in the cab."
Gaara: glaregaarathegreat on September 18th, 2008 12:13 am (UTC)
Gaara shuffled away from her as far as the limited space of the cab would allow. "We're going back to work and then back to my flat."

The journey didn't take too long thankfully, when they pulled up outside his and Gaara's flat he slipped out and then helped the pink haired lunatic out. After paying the cab driver he led Sakura inside the apartment block and up to their flat.

Lee sat at the table, reading a magazine he'd bought for about $2 from one of the junkies on the street corners. It was trash, but he was bored as all hell.

Aparently there was a party tonight. Also aparently, he was going. He had to admit, it would be nice to meet some new people.

'As well as see Iruka getting spanked in a skirt.' Inner Lee taunted.

Mmm, yes, that too. Lee grinned and took another sip of his tea.

His head jerked up when he heard the door open.

"Hey, Gaara? That you?"
the_green_lotus on September 18th, 2008 01:01 am (UTC)
Lee caught the pink blur than charged at him, and kept her steady as she started to sway.

"Sakura? What on earth are you doing here? What happened?"

He noticed the blood and bandages and panicked. "Has someone hurt you? I swear if they have-"
the_green_lotus on September 18th, 2008 01:17 am (UTC)
'Ah, drunkeness. Would it not be nice?' Inner Lee sighed wistfully. Lee and alcohol were NEVER to be put together.

Not if people wanted buildings in-tact.

"You, are drunk." Lee said, trying to sound firm, but his lips couldn't help but tweak up a little at the corners at Sakura's last declaration.

'Gaara...nice?!' He looked over at said red-head, who was giving Sakura a look he couldn't quite decifer.

He shook his head and grabbed Sakura around the waist, lifting her onto the table.

"Did you go to the hospital? That was quite a bit of blood."

He moved her hair out of the way to see the bandages and nodded. Good, she had.
Gaara: glaregaarathegreat on September 18th, 2008 08:48 am (UTC)
Gaara held his forehead as Sakura leaped past him and into their apartment, she'd barely stopped talking the entire journey home. Weren't people with head injuries supposed to be quiet? Inside he lent against the wall toeing of his shoes and watching as his flat mate fussed over the drunken fool.

"She fell off her chair while on the phone to me..." Gaara put in, deciding eventually that he really should join the conversation, if only to save his own reputation. "I called for an ambulance and then met her at the hospital, nothing more. I'm not soft." He glared at Sakura with his full force 'I may look cute but I bite' glare before disappearing into the kitchen leaving only a warning of "no more sake."

He was making tea, if there was anything his long winded, over priced, British schooling taught him it was that when ill you should always drink tea as well as when you've been mugged, beaten, got a bad grade, got a good grade, you're stressed, you're relaxed, you want to wake up or when you want to sleep... and it goes on.
Gaara: slouchinggaarathegreat on September 18th, 2008 10:19 am (UTC)
While the kettle was boiling Gaara moved to lean on the frame of the kitchen door. "My clothes wont fit you, you're breasts are to large to fit in my clothes. Perhaps Lee can lend you something." Behind him the kettle whistled and Gaara returned to fill the pot.
the_green_lotus on September 18th, 2008 12:47 pm (UTC)
Lee rolled his eyes at Gaara's 'bedside manner'. "Yes, I am sure I can find you a shirt to wear. As for Ice Cream," he flicked a finger under Sakura's chin to get her to look up at him, "that is a bad idea with a head injury. Have you ever had brain freeze with a concusion? Not fun."

He smiled at Sakura and flicked her hair over her shoulders. "You are fine...everyone gets drunk now and then...well. Most people. Cheer up! We have a party tonight, remember!"
Gaara: glaregaarathegreat on September 18th, 2008 01:26 pm (UTC)
Gaara walked in with a tray holding a kettle, three mugs and a small pot of milk and rolled his eyes and Lee's coddling. After living with him for only a couple of weeks he'd already experienced being Lee's special brand of caring.

"Sit still Sakura, the doctor told you you should be taking it easy. Have some tea." He took a seat at the table himself and poured out three cups.
the_green_lotus on September 18th, 2008 01:33 pm (UTC)
"No ice cream." Lee tapped her nose. "Gaara is right. Tea should help. It soaks up the alcohol...I think."

He took his own cup from Gaara and nodded his thanks.

"I will make you something...I think they say fry-ups are best to prevent hang-overs." He glanced up at Gaara. "You want some eggs or something?"
Gaara: coygaarathegreat on September 18th, 2008 01:41 pm (UTC)
Gaara shook his head, he was still full up from the toast he'd had for breakfast. Sipping his own tea Gaara studiously ignored Sakura's whining, he didn't care what she preferred, green tea was nice to refresh you but real tea was still better.

"Sakura sit on a chair. Before you fall and break the front of your head."
the_green_lotus on September 18th, 2008 01:43 pm (UTC)
Lee chuckled. "Gaara, she is drunk. She is not going to listen to reason right now, so I would suggest you stop trying."

He took Sakura's tea and lifted her onto a chair. "Sakura, stay! Or I will not give you anything to eat."

He waited for her assent, then turned back to cooking the bacon he'd set going.
Gaaragaarathegreat on September 18th, 2008 01:52 pm (UTC)
"Alcohol doesn't remove all your senses Lee, it just dulls them, she isn't a child, she's perfectly capable of listening to instructions but she's being obstinate."

He removed the sheets of paper from his bag and a pen and started reviewing them, "I've got work to do Sakura, perhaps you could read... or do something else." Gaara wasn't good at entertaining.
the_green_lotus on September 18th, 2008 01:55 pm (UTC)
"I would argue that." Lee muttered. But carried on with cooking the bacon. "Sakura, do you want to lie down for a bit? This will not take long."

Lee could see that Gaara was getting irritated. That really wasn't a good thing. "You can lay on my bed for a bit and I will bring the food in to you. Okay?"
Gaara: worriedgaarathegreat on September 18th, 2008 02:15 pm (UTC)
Gaara was unbelievable grateful that Lee made the noise go away, there was only so much speaking he could listen to in one day. Pulling up his legs to fold them on the chair he hugged his tea to his chest and started working through the papers studiously.
the_green_lotus on September 18th, 2008 02:17 pm (UTC)
Lee stared at Gaara and sighed. It appeared he really did have work to do.

"Gaara? Do you want me to take Sakura home after she has eaten?"

He eased the bacon onto the plate and grabbed a few slices of bread, making the meal into a sandwich.

"I can take her to the party once she has sobered up a bit, and she really cannot go in my clothes."
Gaara: shower sexinessgaarathegreat on September 18th, 2008 02:22 pm (UTC)
Gaara glanced up at Lee and squinted and then retrieved his glasses from his bag so he could look at the man a bit easier. "No, it's fine. The doctor request I keep an eye on her this afternoon... She's quiet now, although perhaps she shouldn't sleep, they aren't good with concussion."

He turned his attention back to the paper and let Lee do what he does best.
the_green_lotus on September 18th, 2008 03:26 pm (UTC)
Lee wandered into his room as Sakura was changing her shirt and turned to give her a little privicy. Sure, he'd already seen it all, but still.

"Sakura?" He said softly. "I brought you some food. How are you feeling now?"

He heard a thud and turned to see Sakura lying spraled on the bed. He gave a laugh and placed the plate on the bedside table before sitting on the bed next to her. "Gaara says it is not the best idea to sleep for now."
the_green_lotus on September 18th, 2008 10:07 pm (UTC)
Lee chuckled and lifted her chin so she could see the plate. "I brought you food." He grinned. "And my room is fine as it is. I wanted to re-arrange my room anyway."

the_green_lotus on September 18th, 2008 10:15 pm (UTC)
"Glad you like it!" Lee laughed. Sakura really was adorable when she was drunk. He looked down at her clothes and shook his head. "We really need to find you some more clothes...I think I might have to disobey Gaara and take you home before the party."
the_green_lotus on September 18th, 2008 10:25 pm (UTC)
"Adorable." Lee grinned. "Positively edible...but do you really want to go to a party in them?" He leant forward and murmured close to her ear. "I think Minato's going..."
the_green_lotus on September 18th, 2008 10:32 pm (UTC)
Lee gave a sigh. "I do wish you would stop calling me that...and no! Nor do I intend to. If I had mearly wished to 'score' with him, I would have just jumped him when he got out the shower. Just in a towel...all wet..." Lee's mind went off on its own little happy trip.
the_green_lotus on September 18th, 2008 10:36 pm (UTC)
"I bet." Lee chuckled. "And no. I told you, he thinks I am an idiot."
the_green_lotus on September 18th, 2008 10:46 pm (UTC)
"You are not an idiot. You are just...problomatic sometimes." Lee chuckled at the kiss and stared at his friend. "And thank you...I mean it. But, for now, he is all I want. If I cannot have him...it might take me a while to get used to that fact."
the_green_lotus on September 18th, 2008 10:55 pm (UTC)
"..." Oh, that gave Lee mental pictures he REALLY didn't need!

'Gaara...ribbon...oh my!'

He shifted uncomfortably. "I am not sure that would work, but thank you."
the_green_lotus on September 18th, 2008 11:03 pm (UTC)
Lee smiled and leant over to tuck a strand of hair behind Sakura's ear.

"Oh Sakura...it would be so much easier if I was in love with you." He sighed. "You really ought to sit up. It will not be good if you fall asleep."
the_green_lotus on September 18th, 2008 11:10 pm (UTC)
Lee turned his head to nuzzle at Sakura's cheek. "Of course I like you, silly. You are beautiful, intelligent, and great fun!" He gave a kiss on the cheek.

"I would imagine there are many people that like you, Sakura. Even Gaara."
the_green_lotus on September 18th, 2008 11:29 pm (UTC)
Lee glanced at the shirt over his shoulder. It wasn't one he wore very often...but he suspected he would have said yes no matter what.

"Of course you can." He smiled. "Do you want something else to eat?"
the_green_lotus on September 18th, 2008 11:45 pm (UTC)
Lee laughed and squeezed Sakura's arms. "Do not call me that either. It is just Lee, Sakura. And I cannot make food it you do not let me go."
the_green_lotus on September 19th, 2008 01:19 pm (UTC)
Lee shook his head and grabbed ahold of Sakura's thighs. "Hold on tight then." He stood up, shifting Sakura up his back slightly.

"Let me see what we can find. And no ice cream of sake."
the_green_lotus on September 21st, 2008 12:31 pm (UTC)
Lee snorted. "I would not suggest you call him that to his face. And no, I do not think we have crumpets. We have dounuts?"

He suddenly stilled and gave a sigh. "Sakura...please can you move your legs up higher? Your heels are in an...uncomfortable place."

Well, not so much uncomfortable...
the_green_lotus on September 21st, 2008 12:49 pm (UTC)
Lee shook his head. "Not a case of not liking..." He muttered. "Just kinda inappropriate right now."

"Dounuts will have to do. Or I can see if we have any cupcakes..."
the_green_lotus on September 21st, 2008 12:53 pm (UTC)
"I can ask." Lee turned his head and poked her cheek with his nose. "Stop pouting."

He gave a sigh. "How to cheer you up...?" 'Maybe a movie...or...'
the_green_lotus on September 21st, 2008 12:58 pm (UTC)
"Not a clue." Lee said cheerfully. "But I can ask. Gaara might have some."

He hefted Sakura up a little. "What do you wanna do? After food I mean. Gaara said he is supposed to keep an eye on you, but I have a feeling it will end up being me. He has work to do."
the_green_lotus on September 21st, 2008 01:04 pm (UTC)
"Okay then." Lee smiled, noticing Sakura's deflation, but choosing not to mention it until she felt ready. "Let us go search for Vegemite!"

He carried her into the kitchen. "Gaara? Do we have Vegemite?"
Gaara: glaregaarathegreat on September 21st, 2008 08:57 pm (UTC)
Gaara lifted his gaze to Lee and Sakura as they wondered into the room, her clinging to his back like a monkey. The position looked unsafe and uncomfortable and he couldn't help think why on Earth they were doing it. "No, they don't sell Vegemite or Marmite in America."
the_green_lotus on September 21st, 2008 09:46 pm (UTC)
"Damn." Lee looked back at Sakura. "Sorry. It will have to be plain toast."

He turned back to Gaara, who was looking a little puzzled. "What is it?"
Gaara: slouchinggaarathegreat on September 22nd, 2008 10:36 am (UTC)
Gaara put down his pen and folded his arms on the table top, regarding Lee and Sakura as they shimmied around the kitchen getting the supposedly bottomless stomached girl more food. "Its a savory spread they sell in England and Australia."
the_green_lotus on September 22nd, 2008 04:59 pm (UTC)
"Sakura." Lee said patiently. "I think Gaara has to work." He popped bread into the toaster. "I think we have some jelly..."

He looked over at Gaara and hid a smile at the man's obviously straining patience.
the_green_lotus on September 23rd, 2008 02:39 pm (UTC)
"Ask your babysitter." Lee smirked, searching through the fridge.
