corpus_invictus | An Unfair Wager
Kirk, despite being let off shift several hours before him, is still working. He's clad only in his worn sweat pants and looks as though he's fresh out of the shower, but his attention is devoted solely to another of those infernal data PADDs, shooting Spock a cursory welcoming smile before focusing on his reports again.

Spock says nothing, making a beeline for the bathroom and sparing a moment to wish he was back on Vulcan (or rather, he corrects himself with a pang, New Vulcan), where every family dwelling was equipped with a large stone bath. He longs for a soak in steaming hot water, the kind that would result in first or second degree burns for Kirk and nothing but bliss for himself. He tries to replicate the experience by soaking his forearms in the sink for a bit, but the water isn't anywhere near hot enough, and the awkward angle he has to achieve in order to keep his wrists submerged isn't doing anything for the pain throbbing in his hands. Finally he gives up, leaving his clothes in an uncharacteristically messy pile on the floor and stepping into a pair of pajama pants before making his way to their bed.

He's rubbing at his wrists in a futile attempt to ease the ache when he settles next to Kirk, curious what he's working on even if he'd like to toss the gadget across the room. "Research on that stupid weed Sulu decided he had to bring back," Kirk explains, shifting not at all subtly closer to him. "Bones said if he has to spend one more day draining purple pus out of the crew, he's going to make me wash out the biohazard pans."

Normally he would make some sort of quip regarding who exactly commands this ship, or maybe even agree with the doctor's method of punishment. But he's tired and he hurts, so he simply remains silent, still rubbing his wrists absently while he looks over the information plastered all over the tiny screen.

Kirk keeps working for a few more minutes before the silence gets to him, looking over at him questioningly. "Something wrong?"
