Yuuri barely had a chance to react to the pain in his arm when his world bottomed out completely. Viktor was falling. Worse, the two creatures were getting closer, attacking and threatening. Yuuri looked around frantically for something, anything that could help him in this moment. A flare of panic seared through him as Yuuri started to dive to save Viktor, a moment too late. He heard Viktor’s head hit the rock and let out a scream of fear, rushing to kneel at Viktor’s side despite the creatures attacking. He was desperate, shaking with adrenaline, as he watched Domovoi fight off the creatures. He saw Viktor’s eyes close and paled immediately. He had to do something. Anything.
Without even thinking, Yuuri ripped off his jacket and wrung it out into a rope of sorts. He tied it around Viktor’s head, hoping to stop any kind of bleeding that he was willing to bet would come as a result of the crash. “Vitya!” He called out, desperation in his voice. He didn’t shake him, despite every fiber in his being demanding that he do something more. Before he could wars off the creatures, a blinding white light flashed nearby and Yuuri blinked, shocked that the creatures turned to dust. He was too scared to cry. Too worried to panic. They had to move, now. Without hesitation, Yuuri bent down and actually lifted Viktor into his arms. He wasn't all that heavy, plus the energy he had from his own nerves picked up. He draped Viktor’s arms around his neck, dragged his legs so they wrapped around his waist protectively. Yuuri pulled Viktor fiercely close, turning helplessly to Himari.
“We have to…we have to go somewhere. Medicine. He’s hurt. I…I don't…” his voice was small as Yuuri realized he was alone, with Viktor’s life in the balance for all he knew. He turned to Domovoi as well, adding desperately, “Please. I’ll take care of him. I just….I need supplies. Some place safe.” He could feel his eyes starting to tear already, but Yuuri gritted his teeth and drew Viktor closer, determined to get them to safety.
