Stitches (Donnie x Reader)

985 39 29

You yawned as you woke up in the middle of the night. You had trouble sleeping sometimes. Donnie had been giving you some stuff to help, but it didn't make it go away completely. Still, it helped and you were thankful that he did that for you.

You stood up, your PJ's loosely clinging to your body. You decided to go to the kitchen to get a snack. You'd go back to bed afterwards. You rubbed your eyes as you walked from your room, through the lair, and into the kitchen. It as dark, so it made it a little harder to see. Still, you knew your way around. You walked into the kitchen, but then you smacked into something. 

"Oww..." You groaned. You opened your eyes and could make out Donnie standing there. "Donnie? What are-" He cut you off and picked you up, covering your mouth. "Mmm!" 

"Shh!" He said and quickly took you to his lab. You squirmed, trying to make him put you down. "Calm down! Just stay quiet okay?" He whisper shouted. You nodded. He set you down and took his hand away.

"Donnie, what is going on?" You asked. He sighed and turned on the lamp on his desk. You were shocked to see his side was bleeding. "Donnie! You're hurt!" You exclaimed, keeping your voice down. 

"I know! I know! I need stitches, can you help me?" He asked. Donnie had been training you in medical care. You nodded and got everything you needed as he laid down slowly. He was clearly in pain, but he wasn't tense. He was completely relaxed. You got some antibacterial wipes and gently cleaned the wound after he laid down on his good side. He closed his eyes and let you treat him. You'd never seen him like this. He was so....calm. Usually, when anyone gets hurt he's all over it, running around and doing everything possible to make sure it's treated perfectly. Now, he was relaxed, calm, and eerily silent as you cleaned the blood away. Maybe he doesn't have enough energy to make a big deal out of it. You pondered to yourself. 

Once the blood was wiped away you saw that it wasn't as bad as it first appeared. You grabbed the skin-friendly thread and then the needle. You began to stitch his wound. He didn't flinch or make any sound. The only indication that he felt it was a small expression change in his face. 

You kept working and soon he was all stitched up. You gently put the bandages on. He didn't move after you had finished.

"Donnie?" 

"Hmm?" His eyes opened about halfway as he looked at you.

"I'm done." You said. He sat up. 

"Thanks." He said. He tried to stand up, but his legs were shaky. His face showed that he still felt a hint of pain. You frowned. You were pretty strong, so you decided to help him. You sat down in between his legs and he looked confused. "What are you...?" Your arms slipped under his legs and you picked him up. He looked slightly surprised, but soon he gave in and held onto you. You gave him a piggyback ride to his room. You gently let him down on his bed and tucked him in. You could tell he was tired. You began to leave, but a raspy voice called you back. "Wait..." You turned. His eyes were barely open and he looked so...so drained. You walked back over to him. 

"Donnie?" You asked softly.

"S..stay.....please?" His voice was raspy now and it was clear that he was exhausted. You couldn't refuse him when he was in this state. He looked so helpless and a little desperate even. You lifted the covers and laid down next to him. He closed his eyes again. You laid there in silence as he fell asleep. You kissed his forehead goodnight.

"Tomorrow...you've got some explaining to do." 

*The next day*

You woke up with Donnie still sleeping next to you. You sighed as you remembered the events that occurred the previous night. You got up and went to get something to eat. You had some cereal and then you went back to check on Donnie. None of the boys were up yet luckily. When you walked in and closed the door behind you, you felt a pair of arms slowly wrap around your body. You tensed, but you relaxed as you looked over your shoulder and saw Donnie hugging you.
