Dec30, Star Trek, Kirk/McCoy, Not Knowing
Title: Not Knowing Fandom: Star Trek XI Pairing: Kirk/McCoy Rating: PG Note: For secretsolitaire, who wanted Kirk/McCoy, "just in time."
McCoy sat, holding his captain's hand. He'd spent nearly two hours over Kirk's unconscious body, cursing and praying alternately as he cleaned and sutured the terrible wounds, Nurse Chapel as ever a steadying influence. The monitors would notify him of any change in Kirk's condition, but McCoy preferred to stay. The not knowing was the worst. The away team might have beamed the captain back just in time, but it might have been just too late. McCoy promised himself that if – no, when – Kirk regained consciousness, he would tell him he loved him, and not risk never having the chance.
