A/N: Two drabbles I wrote for the drabblefest over at livejournal.
Title: None of It
Characters: Djaq, gang
Prompt: Djaq; stomach flu
When Djaq woke up in the morning, she noticed that something was wrong. The taste in her mouth was bitter, her abdomen cramped. She could feel the pain slowly registering, at the same time as the nausea set in full force.
On wobbly legs she left her bunk, rushing to a more appropriate spot for the occasion. As she walked back a few minutes later, she was met with worried glances. She sat down, rubbing her belly softly, considering to lie back down.
"Are you alright?" Robin asked, John watching her from behind him.
Djaq shook her head once. "Just a stomach flu." If she had felt any better, she might have been able to mix herself something that would help, but she didn't really feel up to it...
"My auntie had really good advice for that," she could hear Will saying.
Allan laughed. "If you got sick from something, just eat some more of the same. Has always helped me."
"If you let me advise you-" Much started, but Djaq held up her hand.
"Stop." She breathed out deeply. "I know you Englishmen. You and your 'medicine'. I want none of it!"
Characters: Guy, Vaysey
Prompt: Guy; leprosy
"Where have you left your leper?"
Guy stopped in front of Vaysey, tensing only ever so slightly at the question. Every time the sheriff used words like these, he knew that the man was just trying to aggravate him. So he pushed the insult that was directed at Marian out of his mind. Vaysey didn't know after all. Guy had never been talkative, and even less so when it came to his family.
"Marian has gone to the market."
"Lepers, Gisborne, they're no good."
Jaw clenching slightly, Guy stared ahead. Vaysey didn't know. And he wouldn't tell him. Ever.
