This isn't right. The order is all wrong. They've upset the natural way of things.

He shouldn't be blind. Should not be this way.

Shouldn't be lost. Shouldn't be in the darkness.

The way he clung to me...

I'm not leaving his side. He was there for me. I will be there for him.

Whether he likes it or not.

Cid tries to get dressed as Vincent leaves his side briefly to use the bathroom facilities. The t-shirt isn't so bad, although he's still stiff from the fight. The pants are a little more work, fumbling about to find his foot in the pant legs and the zipper and button. The shoes are a bitch though. Everytime he thinks he's got the bow of the laces tied, it falls apart under his fingers. He's got one tied by the time Vincent comes out.

Vincent slows as he comes out, seeing Cid bent over his shoes.

"We have plans?"
Cid: getin' pissedsmokin_highwind on January 20th, 2009 06:19 am (UTC)
"'M hungry," Cid says gruffly. "I aint a fuckin' invalid. I don't need te be brought my goddamn food. I can get it in the Mess like everyone else."
Vincent Valentinebeastunderneath on January 20th, 2009 06:25 am (UTC)
Vincent is quiet for a moment, deliberating, and then there's the sound of him dropping into a seat on the chair, and the thump and jingle of him pulling on his boots.
Cid: serioussmokin_highwind on January 20th, 2009 06:27 am (UTC)
Cid listens. He pulls a bow tight on his boots. "Ye comin'?" he asks, his tone hard to read.
Vincent Valentinebeastunderneath on January 20th, 2009 06:32 am (UTC)
"Yes," Vincent rumbles, simple and brooking no argument.
Cid: serioussmokin_highwind on January 20th, 2009 06:39 am (UTC)
Cid doesn't argue, which was telling in itself. He stands and puts a hand to his brow, but there's no goggles, or pack of cigarettes shoved under the strap. Cid thins his lips and 'looks' about the room, wondering where he might have left his smokes, and if it would be dignified to pat everything down blindly trying to find them.
Vincent Valentinebeastunderneath on January 20th, 2009 06:55 am (UTC)
Vincent watches him ponderously; he stands.

"Smokes are on the nighstand. Lighter's in the pack," he says absently, doing up his shirt properly.
Cid: serioussmokin_highwind on January 20th, 2009 06:57 am (UTC)
"When did ye start readin' minds?" Cid asks, and makes his way carefully to the nightstand. He finds the smokes and pockets them, saving them for after his meal.
Vincent Valentinebeastunderneath on January 20th, 2009 07:05 am (UTC)
Vincent grunts, and goes to brush against Cid, ostensibly to straighten something on the bed, but more to orientate Cid, and then goes to the door, opening it audibly.
Cid: serioussmokin_highwind on January 20th, 2009 07:09 am (UTC)
Cid walks out, fingers trailing along the corridor as they go. They make it to the mess hall without any problems, but it's where Cid's luck runs out. He realises that he may have spoken too brashly. He doesn't know quite where the trays are, what food is being served or where, which benches are free... He is an invalid. And what's worst is he can hear the noise in the Mess dim as his crew take notice of his arrival.

He can feel their pity ooze off them like slime.
Vincent Valentinebeastunderneath on January 20th, 2009 07:21 am (UTC)
Vincent follows after him, always just a step behind. As Cid slows and comes to a stop, lost, he comes to stand just behind him, looming over him.

One brave cadet looks to his peers, and stands, approaching Cid. He rubs his hands on his thighs, and sticks out his hand for Cid, then seems to realise his mistake, and grabs Cid's hand and brings it up to clasp his, making it into a two-fisted handshake. "Hey, Cap," he says with forced cheer. "Real great to see you up and about. Haven't made the bullet that can keep you down yet," he jokes, looking to the mess for sparse, weak laughter. "Don't you worry about a thing, Cap'; we got it all under control. You just worry about getting better now, y'hear?"
Cid: mesmokin_highwind on January 20th, 2009 07:28 am (UTC)
Cid's mouth quirks up. He lifts his other hand, like he's going to cuff the cadet or ruffle his hair.... Then Cid worries about his aim, and his arm drops.

"Get back te yer food 'fore it goes cold ye great numbskull."
Vincent Valentinebeastunderneath on January 20th, 2009 07:36 am (UTC)
The cadet grins more confidently and nods, giving a salute. "Aye aye, Captain!" He turns away, but instead faces the mess at large, lifting his arms. "Three cheers for our Captain, come on! Hip-Hip!"

"Hooray!"

"Hip-hip!"

"Hooray!"

"Hip-hip!"

"Hooray!"

Vincent doesn't show any outward display of emotion, but behind Cid, he brushes his knuckles against his back.
Cid: serioussmokin_highwind on January 20th, 2009 07:47 am (UTC)
"I aint payin' ye all te make a noise!" Cid shouts at them good naturedly. It's not until he turns his back and starts heading in what he believes to be the general the direction of he food that he lets his smile drop. He fumbles for his smokes and stops to pull one out and try and get the lighter to work.
