A main thoroughfare, this road connects Liege, one of the biggest cities in Belgium, to Germany. As might be expected it is a fast road and well suited for military traffic. Even with refugees on it.
It is currently dusk.

(From Truck #13156) Mikael doesn't talk much. He's the new kid on the block, but even despite that, it's rather obvious he's not a chatty type. His gaze is detached, but he doesn't seem bored - he's attentively listening, gaze unwaveringly on the others.

«Game» The enemy is near… Gembloux Gap is now a war zone!

(From Truck) Veit is driving. To that end, he's shifting gears and moving them along. Veit's humming, a cheery song. "Hold on tight, friends. We're on our way."

«Radio» <Thumper radios> The French are massing on the Ernage-Gembloux North - South road ahead of you. Advance on the smaller road as far as you think you can get away with and then prepare to defend.

(From Truck) Hoffman is steady and patient as ever, as the unit rides toward another fight. Habitually checking over the spare belts, and inspecting the machined parts of the MG 34 while they rumble along the Belgian road. Idly, he hums under his breath.

(From Truck) Mikael sits up straighter, shifting his radio gear as it makes noises. He listens attentively, cocking his head to the side and waiting till orders are given before he relays them back. "French are massing on the Ernage-Gembloux north-south road. WE're to advance on the smaller road as far as we can, and then defend."

«Radio» <Starlight radios> Understood.

(From Truck) Hoffman looks up at the word from the radio man, and nods without immediate comment. Looking about idly, he wonders of the solider next to him, "Anyone have entrenching tools?"

«Radio» <Thumper radios> On top of you!

For once, it's the German's turns to ah, advance to the rear. Veit isn't stupid. He pulls the truck back to the east, to give the men time to prepare and shoot back.

«Game» Bauer changes his style to TakeCover!

«Ground Vehicles» Veit unhitches 88mm FlaK 18 from Truck!

«Game» Hoffman changes his style to TakeCover!

Veit nods at Mikhael, and grunts. It takes him a good bit of doing, but soon the 88mm is unhitched from the truck. Veit is panting at that point though, he's no muscle man. He wipes his brow and scoots the gun aside.

Bauer ducks for cover after diving out of the truck, and moves over to Hoffman. To Luka he says, "Go get the 88 ready, I'll help him." He moves then to help Hoffman with the machinegun.

«Game» Bauer assists Hoffman!

Luka curses, "They are retreating to south."

«Ground Combat» Hoffman reloads his MG 34!

Hoffman asks of Luka: "How many of them?

«Ground Vehicles» Veit moves to operate 88mm FlaK 18!#-1
«Ground Vehicles» Luka moves to operate 88mm FlaK 18!#-1

Luka sighs, "All 3 of them I saw fled to south."

«Ground Combat» You are now peeking into Chausee Romaine.

Hoffman nods, and notes to Luka steadily, "Keep watching the west. Someone else watch the south."

Hoffman idly notes that he is bleeding slightly as he deploys the gun. "Is there a medic?" he wonders calmly.

«Ground Combat» Hoffman deploys his MG 34!

Mikael looks to Hoffman for directions, crouching down at the side of the road, then he glances westwards to get a bearing on possible enemies.

Hoffman repeats evenly, "Who is watching the southern field?"

Mikael then jerks his head up. "Incoming! Char B1!"

Ernst braces for the pain, "Get that cannon going you idiots"

Hoffman nods to Mikael and states steadily aloud at the sound of the tracks, "We require the 88 ready quickly."

Veit grunts, helping ready the gun. "Herr, I'm going as fast as I can, we're short loaders."

The Frenchies put up a fair fight from their position in the hedgerows. A blast of accurate submachinegun fire strikes one of the Nazi scum, at least. Then the MG 34 starts walking the hedgerows to deadly effect.

Veit just shakes his head and sighs. "I stand by my 'They don't speak German'."

Mikael lets off a shot almost unvoluntarily as he's hit right in the chest and another in the leg. The dull thudding of the sound of a bullet tearing through flesh makes him blink a few moments. He lets out a cough, not feeling the pain yet. He's just annoyed he suddenly feels sluggish and slow as he raises the rifle again, sweat beading on his forhead and dripping down into his eyes.

Ernst takes someone's arm off, for the fun of it.

Mikael reloads his rifle somewhat slowly, realizing his hands are bloodied. It makes him curl his lips in distain, as if he doesn't enjoy seeing his rifle such sullied. He raises it to take aim, blinking rapidly to get a clear vision.

Hoffman begins feeding the last few shells into the gun and calls, as enar to shouting as the gunner has gotten, "More bullets."

Pierre is next to be blown away. An arm flies up into view, falling back out of sight behind the hedge.

Mikael has to give Pierre a glance, some admiration showing. Maybe some jealousy about his weapon.

Hoffman sniffs under his breath, "The lucky bastard," as he goes about unjamming the lodged shell with Mikael's assistance.

«Ground Combat» Maurice moves West <W>.

Ernst looks over at Hoffman and is about to say something, but then the frog floats away in his pool of blood and instead he goes back to reloading.

«Game» Mikael assists Hoffman!
«Ground Combat» Ernst reloads his S-18 Solothurn!

Hoffman prompts aloud, "Does anyone else have surplus bullets?"

«Announcement from Death!» Stukas can be seen in the distance, at work on the road to the west. The sound of explosions can be heard, even from this distance.

Veit helpfully reaches over, and helps unjam Hoffman's weapon. Seems Veit's got talent.

«Ground Combat» Mikael reloads Hoffman's MG 34!

Luka shouts, "Woo hoo! They are our guys!" he says

«AngelOfDeath» Maxime breathes his last…

Bauer takes a moment to check his leg once the enemy's out of range. Then he looks up to Hoffman and says, "Sorry, after what I gave you before I'm running pretty low." He looks up then to watch the stukas.

Mikael has crawled over to Hoffman to aid him as his own aim is nothing but useless anyway and he's feeling the bullet holes too much. Better he aid someone else, despite his itch to kill as many french as he can with his own hands.

Hoffman nods. "Clear. Thank you," to the able assistance of Veit and Mikael.
Looking to Bauer he nods once and notes, "Keep enough for your own rifle. Do we have reports of contact?"

«Ground Combat» Mikael reloads his Kar98k!

Luka takes out his bandages from the backpack of his, he moves to Ernst and cleans off the wound of Ernst, "You are good to go." he syas.

Mikael leans back a moment, catching his breath even as he reloads his rifle. "Status?" he asks again. "Wounded?"

Veit adds quietly, "I'd give you my ammunition, herr, but I fear ammunition for the Luger's ah, not quite what you need." He nods back at Hoffman and slinks to stay with the 88 for a moment.

«Ground Vehicles» Veit barks orders at Luka!

Hoffman chimes in reply as he orients the mg to cover the western road once again, "Grazed by a rifle shot. No danger."

Luka takes out more bandages, "Wounded, come here. I will work my best on you guys." he says and takes out medicine and clean bandages.

«Radio» <Starlight radios> Road secured. 1 french tank out, several killed infantry. ** got some lightly wounded.

Mikael doesn't look inclined to move anywhere, slumped up against the wheel of the truck, breathing rather heavily.

«Radio» <Thumper radios> There are still French tanks on the road, they may advance. You should make as defensible a position as possible.

Bauer stands up and limps his way over to Luka, sitting down again once he's closer, and keeping his rifle in hand.

«Ground Vehicles» Veit barks orders at Luka!

Mikael blinks heavily, and is jerked back to more alert status as he's getting word over the radio again. "Still tanks on the road, they may advance," he rasps out towards Hoffman. "We're to dig in, make it defensible."

«Medic Code» Luka attempts first aid on Mikael but fails.

«Radio» <Starlight radios> Understood

"On the road or on the side of the road first?" Ernst wonders before he starts any work.

«Game» Veit assists Luka!

Hoffman nods to Mikael's call. Looking southward, he asks, "Does command say how far off the enemy are?

«Radio» <Starlight radios> Requesting information about approximate location of enemy tanks.

Mikael speaks into the radio again, asking the question Hoffman is wondering, to see if command has information to relay back.

Luka gets close to Mikael and starts working on him, the bullet of the enemy seems to be too deep for him to work on, "Damn." he says and starts sweating, he works carefully, "Only a Doctor can do better then I am." he says, he continuesly works on healing him

«Game» Veit assists Luka!

Bauer considers, looking to the South. "Maybe we should take up position in those hedgerows? They'll offer protection, and it'll be quicker than digging."

«Medic Code» Luka attempts first aid on Mikael but fails.

Hoffman nods aside to Bauer, "But then we lave the 88 exposed on and supported in the road.. If there is time, we'll move the artillery off the road as well."

Veit motions to the 88 and the truck, "We can move it nearly anywhere you need, sirs. We'll help you dig a hole to put it in, we were just very lucky they didn't hit us this time around."

Mikael sits in grim silence as Luka attends to his wounds. He bleeds through the bandages however, but the mental part of being attended to helps at least. He makes a grunting sound at Luka, and waves him off so he can speak into the radio again, waiting patiently for a response.

«Radio» <Starlight radios> Repeating, requesting information about approximate location of enemy tanks.

Ernst is waiting a bit more unpatiently for Mikaels response, one ear out to listen to any incoming traffic.

Bauer nods to Hoffman and says, "But the truck should be able to get down there. We can get the 88 down into the hedgerows as well, I think. But yeah, if there's time." He looks to Mikael at that.

Mikael is still waiting, but the radio remains silent. He gives it a light tap, and leans laboriously over to check that it's not been hit by a bullet.

Luka hmms, "Well I think there are at least 2 hedgerows." he says, "Good cover for our infantry."

Hoffman voices while waiting on the radio, "If we have time, drive the truck off the road behind cover. We'll move south, and take positions covering the road."

Veit nods, "Just tell me where you wish the truck and 88 to be. We will move it gladly, but …"

Hoffman nods to Veit, "If we dont have word in another two minutes, we move. The road is too exposed."

«Radio» <Thumper radios> Still on the Rue de Gembloux at present.

Mikael looks a bit more positive as the radio sparks to life in his ear. "Tanks still on Rue de Gembloux!" he calls back to Hoffman.

Hoffman nods once. "Hitch the gun, and mvoe the truck south. Infantry, take cover in the wheatfield. Move."

Luka takes out some salt and places it on the bandages, "I will be clear with you. It will hurt. But it will heal your wounds." he says and pressures the bleeding wound of Bauer, and quickly wraps it up, "There you go. It should be enough till you get tended by a nurse.

Ernst doesn't waste time once the order is given, he drags his rifle along, heading for the wheatfield to the north.

«Ground Combat» Ernst moves North <N>.

To his humiliation, Mikael has to use his rifle to support himself to stand up, beginning a swaying walk towards the south.

Coordinates : 5 6

Like a golden sea, the wheatfield stretches out with forest in the distance, or far off farm houses. The land is flat and open and anyone moving through it is easily spotted. Here and there some weed has conquered an area, mostly thistles which adds splashes of green amidst all the yellow.
It is currently dusk.

Ernst gets into some cover, "I'll keep my eyes on the road" he mutters to anyone interested.

«Ground Combat» Hecker moves into Hedgerows.

Hoffman adds, "Armour is our concern. The french infantry have given us no cause to dread to date."

Luka nods his head, "We can use your hands Herr Mikael." he says.

Hecker hops into the trench having lagged somewhat behind, he looks alert and ready for orders as he prepares his rifle.

Mikael gives Hoffman a curt nod, no salutes added, not here on the field. He heads towards the 88 and Luka, to aid there.

«Ground Combat» Ernst deploys his S-18 Solothurn!

Luka nods his head, "Indeed. The infantry must have told where we were." he says.

Veit's face. "Herr, this gun is not well protected. It may be wise to hide among the hedgerows."

Luka sighs, "My mistake sir." he says.

Mikael shakes his head at Veit. "I'm staying here. will assist you," he comments simply, narrowing his eyes. His gaze moves away from the road though, and he shifts position so he can keep a lookout towards the west, a bit paranoid.

Veit furrows his eyebrows. Well, that's … "As you wish herr." Veit seems less than enthusiastic about the idea. He glances towards the south again.

Luka turns to Hoffman, "Shall we dig a trench sir?" he asks, "We may place the Gun well in it."

Hoffman answrs the artilleryman, "If you can fit the gun and crew in a foxhole, then do it. If not, we dont have time for trench digging."

Luka nods his head, "Yes sir."

Luka hmms, "I dont think they will come from the south. They are bombing there."

"Oh Gott, I hate to bug you again. Yes, it's me Veit… Please, let the French be as bad at shooting as I am," Veit offers another quick prayer.

Hoffman recites the even refrain, "Jammed. clearing the chamber."

"Was the tank on the road taken out?" Mikael asks, looking around. "Give me a status report."

Well, the last round of this clip at least hit, Ernst takes yet another deep breath and starts to reload.

Luka smiles, "Dont worry Viet. You will blow up this one just like you did the other one." he says.

Coordinates : 5 6

Like a golden sea, the wheatfield stretches out with forest in the distance, or far off farm houses. The land is flat and open and anyone moving through it is easily spotted. Here and there some weed has conquered an area, mostly thistles which adds splashes of green amidst all the yellow.

It is currently dusk.

Hoffman notes, "The western tank is moving backward. Radio: Call in a stuka to hit to the west- coordinates 3,6."

Mikael begins a survey of the surroundings, suddenly suspicious. "Where'd the infantry go?" he asks of Bauer. "Which direction did they run?"

"Tank retreating" Ernst reports for those who are looking somewhere else.

Luka curses, "We should get in the Hedgerows, the next artillery will be on top of us."

Hecker informs "No infantry south."

Hoffman repeats, "The western tank fell back to coordinates 3,6."

Bauer looks up to Mikael again and answers, "West, along the road."

«Ground Vehicles» Truck has been knocked out of action!

SPLINTERS!

«Game» Ernst changes his style to TakeCover!

«Game» Luka changes his style to Sprint!

Mikael coughs, the smoke from the growing fire getting into his lungs suddenly. Coughing doesn't help the pain in his guts and chest.

Ernst looks over to the poor burning truck, "Doesn't look like that will take us anywhere", he then pulls his head down in case they decide to rain arty on top of them.

«Radio» <Starlight radios> ** air support at coordinates ** repeat, requesting air ***** at coordinates 3,6.

«Radio» <Thumper radios> Say again?

"Holy sh—" Veit stops himself, as the truck explodes. He stares in horror for a moment. Then a sigh. "Well, I feel like a fool." He scowls at the gun.

Mikael gives the radio a few thumps on the side, as his message doesn't get through. It doesn't really help, but it's one of those things.

«Ground Combat» Luka moves into Hedgerows.

Hoffman notes aloud, "Machine gun is empty. Is the 88 ready to fire again?" that last directed toward the artillery crew. Of Ernst, he asks, "How many shells do you have left?"

«Radio» <Starlight radios> Requesting air support at coordinates 3,6, repeat, requesting air support ** coordinates 3,6. *** * tank there.

«Ground Vehicles» Luka moves to operate 88mm FlaK 18!#-1

Veit blinks as his loader abandons him momentarily. Um. Well then.

"10 in and 20 on the side" Ernst responds back to Hoffman once he's done reloading.

Hoffman nods. "Infantry, bullet and grenade count," he prompts of the rest of the squad.

«Ground Combat» You are now peeking into Wheatfield.

Mikael frowns. "Tank must've gotten away," he comments quietly to Hoffman. He's craning his neck a bit now, listening for the sounds of vehicles.

Luka places another HE ammo to FlaK 88, "All ready Veit." he says.

Hoffman lets out a steady breath and nods. "We can expect either another push of armour, or artillery and infantry. Who is watching the southern road?"

Hecker :answers "I am."

Bauer checks through his gear, and says, "Thirty bullets, plus four in my clip, and two grenades, sir."

Veit pauses, "Well, definitely not my finest hour." He seems a bit gloomy about that. Veit thumps the gun gently and shakes his head.

Mikael turns his voice down a notch, speaking to Hoffman. "I'm out of ammunition. Only got the rounds in my rifle."

Hoffman nods again. "Bauer, count off ten shots for Schutze Morgenstern."

Luka shakes his head, "Keep your spirits high, we have blown up 2 tanks." he says, "And killed countless french and didnt lose a single soul! This is a great victory for the Fatherland!"

Hecker inclines his head to Luka "Is this where you order us all to charge? Or is this where we drink french foot-wine?"

Hoffman gives a flat look to Luka, and corrects, "This is the *start* of a victory. Until we are relieved, this is still our battle." A dry smile aside to Hecker's quip.

«Game» Luka tries to inspire the troops!

Mikael just bleeds quietly.

Hoffman allows a tight smile at the success of the dive bomber. Setting a fresh line of bullets into his Luger, he voices to Mikael, "Inform command that the tank has been destroyed, and the enemy infantry killed or routed."
The world explodes, and Maurice is hurled forwards. He gets up, or tries to, and then realises that one leg is only attached by a bloody strip of flesh. He presses on, as best he can manage.

Luka shouts, "DROP YOUR WEAPON AND SURRENDER!".

«Ground Vehicles» That vehicle has already been knocked out!

Running? Not any time soon, it would seem. Veit takes a potshot at the poor Frenchman and winces. "Ah." Wow. Stukas! At last, a distraction. Then he eyes Luka again, "Sir, you could probably tell them you like them and that they can come sleep with your sister and I do not think they'd get it." He shakes his head.

Mikael nods to Hoffman and turns a few wheels and gizmos on the radio, checking it over to make sure frequency hasn't been shifted for all this moving about. He lifts the microphone and speaks.

«Radio» <Starlight radios> Tank is destroyed by air support, repeating, tank destroyed by air support. ** killed or rereated. We're holding * road.

Hecker complains to Luka "Instead of shouting like that, could you write it all down in a book and then when the war is over we can all not buy it." as Luka destroys his battle-buzz.

Ernst reloads his monster with the last set of rounds while eyeing the Frenchman dragging himself out and away from sight.

Hoffman gives a reserved little chuckle at the banter within the unit, before cutting it off with a curtly stated, "Enough chatter. Radio, when you raise command, add that our munitions are depleted, and our truck has been knocked out."

«Radio» <Thumper radios> Copy that, too. Stay where you are until relieved.

«Ground Combat» Hoffman reloads his Luger P-08!

Luka Shrugs, he sits down to 88, "Man I am exhusted." he says.

«Radio» <Starlight radios> Understood.

Ernst sits down next to the Solothurn, the adrenalin rush wearing off making him feel just how sore he is.

Veit wipes his brow, and sighs. "Well, I can't believe I swore off so much." Next week is going to be straight flying for poor Veit, but he seems relieved no one's exanimate.

Hecker replies to Veit after chuckling through his memorys of the affirmations "No naughty pictures?"

«Radio» <Starlight radios> Requesting ammunition, we're out of it. Repeat, we are out of ammunition.

«Ground Vehicles» Luka works on reloading 88mm/L56 with 88mm FlaK HEAT!

Veit mutters darkly, "Yes. No cursing either."

Hoffman lets out a slow breath, and takes stock of the situation. "Bauer, reload your rifle, and pass any remaining shells to Hecker."

«Ground Combat» Bauer reloads his Kar98k!

Luka pats the helmet of Veit, "We done well." he says with a smile.

Mikael turns to Hoffman after some rather lengthy chattering over the radio. "REported our situation. They're sending reinforcements."

Bauer nods to Hoffman, "Yes sir." He reloads his rifle, and then picks the remaining ammo and passes it over as ordered.

Hecker explains "One round left, it looks like a lucky one too. Sir?" he offers it.

«Ground Vehicles» PzKpfw 2C arrives from Forest!

Mikael counts his bullets. "I got nine in total, Sir. But they're sending reinforcements."

(From PzKpfw 2C #14529) Fritz drove a tank, held a generals rank, while the blitzkrieg raged and the bodies stank…

Veit goes a little crosseyed as his helmet is patted again. "If you keep doing that, you're going to rattle my brains," He notes wryly. He checks his Luger over just in case.

Hoffman sniffs in dry amusement to Hecker, before nodding to Mikael's count. The approach of a Scout Panzer draws his attention, and the machine gun-less machine gunner stands up and faces the armour to hear the situation.

Mikael spots the arriving tank and he tenses for a moment until he realizes it's a friendly one this time. He slumps back into the hedge, leaning against the radio. He wets his dry lips, and he takes his waterbottle and takes a quick swig out of it. Suddenly nervous, he peers down at his belly as if expecting the water to pour out of the hole there. When it doesn't, he lets out an inaudible sigh of relief.

Luka nods his head to Mikael, "Good." he says with a smile, he then moves to heal the wounded german in the arm

Fritz emerges from the panzer, carrying a few belts of ammo, which he dumps onto the grass in the setting sun. "You needed ammo?"

Bauer looks back towards the arriving tank as well. His one arm's pretty much useless as he moves, but he holds the rifle with the other arm still.

Veit steps down from the gunner's seat. "Anyone need help?" He will help move ammo or reload then, since he doesn't seem to have to worry about any tanks for the moment.

Hoffman nods and gives an even thanks for the delivery, looking to the other infantrymen and prompting, "Load up. All you can carry."

Luka fails to heal Bauer, "Sorry, but you have to see a medic for it." he says, he seems to be sweating alot, totally exhusted.

Luka hmms, "There was a truck at south west of here, we can load the ammo to it." he suggests.

Veit notes quietly, "Wasn't that a French truck?"

Fritz indicates eastwards. "There is something passing for a casualty clearing station being set up in that hedgerow east of here. You can get your wounded evacuated to there.".

Ernst dives on the ammo, energy suddenly back.

Hoffman nods to Fritz, and turns promptly to Mikael, "Schutzen Bauer and Morgenstern. You are both to report to th east for treatment immediately."

Hecker moves to Ernst and boggles "Well no wonder….look at the size of those rounds! Dear GOd."

Luka nods his head, "A french one, but its a souveneir for us eh?" he asks

Mikael follows the point eastwards, and he glances at Hoffman as if waiting for permission to get his wounds treated. When the order comes, he nods to Hoffman and laborously gets to his feet (or foot). He hefts the radio up and starts moving east, but then hesitates. "Sir, will you take the radio?"

"Well, it would just look silly if they were any smaller" Ernst replies with a nod towards the Solothurn.

Bauer nods to Hoffman and says, "Yes sir." Picking himself up, he starts to limp his way towards the aid station mentioned.

Hoffman nods to Mikael, "Yes. Leave it with the squad until the doctors have cleared you to rejoin us, Schutze."

Veit wanders off, probably to clean the giant gun.

"Yes, Obershutze," Mikael says, both relieved and not; he likes that radio. He puts it down, and wipes some blood and dirt off of it with tender care, gives it a critical look before he nods and hobbles eastwards.

The Grid THE GREATEST GENERATION


Coordinates : 8 6

Tall, regal trees reach for the sky as they have for hundreds of years, their crowns lending welcome shade in the summer and frosty artwork in the winter. Old leaves cover the ground, but obscured by plentiful underbrush, they are more felt than seen when walking over them. It is an oasis in an area otherwise covered by farmland, left alone to flourish where elsewhere the hand of man has cut down every tree for their own needs.

It is currently dusk.

Sub-Rooms :
1. Casualty Clearing Station

Ah, the mayhem of an improvised station. Well, no time for a shrinking violet. Sofia's dressed to ki— errr, operate. She looks imposing, barking orders to orderlies and sorting nurses. Put that there- no, there. Ack, he's bleeding! She is washing her hands, now, between helping sort things out.

Mikael hobbles into the clearing station on his own, but he got some aid to get there by some milling about soldiers. Once inside, he leans against the nearest flat surface, coldsweating, glancing around.

Bauer limps in after Mikael, his leg bloody but bandaged, and one arm still bleeding as it hangs limply. He doesn't say anything as he takes his place, finding a spot he can sit down.

Oh ho. The sharp eyes of Sofia fall upon Mikael after she's washed her hands. Her eyes widen, and she barks at some orderlies. Soon enough, a bed is wheeled over for the man. "Mein Gott, your arm is nearly off!" She blinks at him. And now Bauer too? She motions over for Bauer to be put on a bed. He's next. "Wheel him to … whatever it is we seem to be operating in these days," Sofia frowns. She's donning the gloves. Uh oh, Mika's in for it now. He'll be put on a bed and given Ether provided he doesn't run off. While that happens, Sofia turns on her heel sharply to Bauer.

Mikael gives Sofia a look that suggests he prefers facing a hundred french rather than the gloved nurse. He tries to keep a stoic profile though, being put on the bed and wheeled towards where he'll be examined.

Bauer gives a weak smile to the nurse and says, "Yeah, it got hit pretty bad." Then, he asks, as he lays down, "You can save it, right?" Besides that worry, though, exhaustion is obviously starting to kick in.

Luckily, there's morphine to be had for Mikael before Sofia starts in. Ah, sweet sweet morphine. She's got to sort things out anyhow. Several moments pass. While Bauer lays down, Sofia nods to him and smiles. "I think we can. Just relax and breathe …" She motions to some orderlies. Time for poor Bauer to sleep! Ether a-go-go, it would seem. Something a bit more than minor surgery is in store for him. "You won't feel a thing soon," She promises while attending to Mikael's wounds. The woman works efficiently, slender hands closing open wounds, cleaning dirt and rocks away. Disinfecting too.

Sweet, sweet norphine indeed. Even so, Mikael fights the effects as if he doesn't like losing control. But he can't, so in the end his eyelids are heavy, pupils dilated and his breathing slow and calm as the nurse works on his wounds. "Hole in my stomach," he tells her helpfully. "Is it big?"

Luka walks to the Casualty Clearing Station and nods his head politely to Sofia, "Fraulein." hesays, "I am here to assist you. I know some medicine." he says, "I cleaned some of the wounds on the field."

Bedside manners, even the most disgruntled person needs them. Sofia smiles politely, and shakes her head, "No, no not at all. Just rest now. You'll be good as new in no time." She's patching him up neatly, working here and there. Once she's done for the moment, doing enough to keep him from keeling over and let bedrest do the rest, she peers at Luka. A few blinks. "You … do?" Blink. "Well, the best thing you can do for now is try not to startle anyone or get underfoot." With that, she will pull a sheet over Mikael to let him rest and tend to Bauer.

Mikael is relieved and shows it with a faint smile to Sofia. "THat's good, that's really good." He looks away from her towards Luka, eyes unfocused, things a bit blurry around the corners.

Luka nods his head and goes to wash his hands, "Don't worry, I tended to wounded before." he says politely, "I know a thing or two."

Sofia smiles back, "Just rest now, herr. Dinner will come to you this evening." She's doing her best to be reassuring while Bauer is wheeled off. She peers at Luka, "That is fine, sir. Just please don't cause too much ruckus, men are resting and being operated on." She shakes her head.

Mikael looks back to Sofia, a slight worried frown to his forhead. "I'm not hungry," he politely tells her. "I'm very thirsty though. It feels like sandpaper."

Luka nods, "As you wish. I will return to front then." he says politely and starts to walk away. "These men fought bravely today. They deserve every single bit of care. They earned it with honor."

Sofia nods back at Luka and smiles. "I believe it. We'll take good care of them," She waves to the man. Then, to Mikael. "Well- let's get you some water," She steps off and away. She will return with a pitcher of water and a glass. She pours water into the glass, and carefully offers Mikael the glass. "Are you able to drink on your own?" She asks quietly.

Mikael follows her movements with slow motions of his eyes as if he can't really keep up. The water offered makes him lick his lips again and he nods to her, carefully taking the glass and tilting his head up to drink. He spills some out over his neck, but gets most of it down. "Thank you," he murmurs, letting out a relieved sigh. "What is your name, nurse?"

Sofia sshs softly, "Easy there. Do you want more?" She asks quietly. Sofia smiles, not seeming to mind him being a bit slow. She's probably quite surprised he's even still awake. She will dab the water away after it spills with a towel too. "Me? I am Nurse Sofia Weir. I do not think we've met Herr?" She peers over at him.

Mikael blinks heavily. He is struggling to stay awake, and won't be much longer. "A pleasure to meet you, Nurse Weir," he offers politely. His voice has a raspy quality to it, but it could be because he's wounded and tired and has breathed in gunsmoke and other smoke. "I am Unterscharfuhrer Mikael Morgenstern. I was transferred here yesterday." He pauses, then adds dryly; "I got quite the welcome."

Sofia seems to understand, she mostly keeps an eye on him. Sofia's apparently not scary all the time. "Ah, and a pleasure to meet you too Herr Mikael Morgenstern," She replies. Sofia sets the pitcher down on the nightstand. She wrinkles her nose and looks around the ward, "A few serious injuries. Must have been a heck of a welcome," The woman agrees and nods. "Just rest now."

Mikael relaxes back and he sighs, nodding at Sofia. "Rest," he murmurs, brain about to shut down and put him to blissful sleep under the influence of morphine. "Thank you, Nurse Weir."

Sofia nods, once more. "Yes. You've earned it." Let the morphine work its er, magic. She will let the poor man rest, "You are welcome. Now, you must work on getting better once again."

Mikael just gives Sofia a lazy smile, too tired to answer in words. His eyes drift close and he falls into a restful slumber.

Schwenkfeld walks in from the camp, his large form not in a vehicle this time.

Sofia is in the aid station, cleaning blood off the floor. She seems a bit distracted, and looks up for a moment.

Schwenkfeld sees little movement except for Sofia's mopping blood off the floor. The middleaged Rottenfuhrer smiles over to her, seeming a little hesitant to disturb, though, from where he stands at the entrance.

After she's done what she could, she may as well clean up the ward so Herr Doktor won't yell. Sofia smiles politely, and waves at Schwenkfeld. "Hello herr," She murmurs quietly. She wrings the mop into a bucket. By now, the surgeries are done, stitches put in. All of that. She seems to be ok with him coming in, judging by her posture. "Mind the ground, it's a bit wet."

Schwenkfeld looks down to peer at the dampness, and the big lug tries his best to step around it. "Hello, Nurse Sofia" and smiles for a moment over to her. "I heard my nephew Lucas was hurt, and I came to see him." He finally makes it over close enough to speak to her without calling over the wounded men on cots.

Sofia smiles back up at the man. A little frown, and she nods. "Herr Bauer?" She motions over towards a bed a few beds over. "He's out of surgery now, I believe. He won't lose his arm, but he'll need a bit of rest for awhile. You can see him if you like though," She looks over her shoulder, voice quiet now. "I am not sure if he's awake or not. He'll likely be on morphine awhile," Ah, morphine. "Poor fellow." She doesn't seem to mind Otto's presence though, perhaps understanding his concern.

Schwenkfeld turns as she speaks, looking over to the bed she indicates. "Oh yes, Herr Bauer. Luke." and smiles a bit though the expression hints at worry. "Lose an arm." softly sated. "I really hope not. He's just a kid."
stated.

Bauer is, in fact, starting to wake up, just starting to stir in fact. After a moment, though, he seemsd to notice his uncle's voice, reaching up to rub at his eyes a bit weakly before looking around.

Sofia frowns a little, "He took a bad shot to it. But - I think I was able to get the worst of it. Just, he needs to stay off it awhile alright?" She tries to assauge Schwenkfeld's concerns. She will lead him to the bed, picking up her mop. "You can talk to him if you like," She offers quietly. "Herr Doktor's away and I don't mind," She smiles faintly. "If either of you are thirsty, just call me." She will let them talk at that. She's not family, so it feels a bit awkward.

Schwenkfeld slowly nods, stepping even closer now. "Hey Luke. Are you awake buddy?" smiling down to him. "He looks like he's waking up now." offered to Sofia. "You did a good job, wrapping him up in bandages. He will be fine." and nods, more hopeful perhaps than professional in his opinion.

Bauer looks up to Schwenkfeld at his approach and smiles weakly, "Uncle Otto. Sorry I'm kind of a mess right now. Got hit pretty bad. But I kept fighting." He tries to sit up, but just for a split second, laying his head back again then.

"Careful herr, please don't sit up just yet. I can however, prop the bed up a bit if you like," She offers. Sofia looks over towards Schwenkfeld and nods, though she seems a bit unsure about that. She lets the two men talk though, waiting nearby quietly.

Schwenkfeld leans over to him, smiling, "Don't try to get up if Nurse Sofia told you to lay down. She knows what she is talking about. She's the nurse who got me better every time." Digging into his pocket, he offers Bauer a little bag of peanuts. "Picked this up from a Belgian truck that fell over. This was left over, and I wanted you to have some good food." The peanuts aren't shelled, and it's only a couple kilos full. He nods then to what advice the nurse just offered.

Bauer nods a little to Sofia and smiles a bit, "Please." He looks up to his uncle once again and reaches with his good hand to accept the bag. "Thank you." He just holds the bag for now, though.

Schwenkfeld smiles a nod, "I can crack them open for you, if you want. I am supposed to eat now, but I'm not so hungry after being on guard duty at that farmhouse." He leans and grins, "Too much food in farmhouse for me to pass up."

With that, Sofia will help prop Bauer up, adjusting the bed and setting pillows under him. She will lean against him with her shoulder as she moves the pillows about. "There you go," He's sitting up at about a 30 degree angle or so. Nothing strenuous, but talking's no longer quite so awkward. Sofia chuckles a bit at Schwenkfeld and smiles. Too adorable. Silly. "They put me on double duty, I help the cooks here sometimes. So at least, it is only half bad," She winks slyly. "Are you thirsty herrs?"

Bauer smiles up to Sofia after he's propped up, "Thank you." He shakes his head to Schwenkfeld, "I'm not hungry, yet, I'll save them for later." Then, though, at Sofia's offer he says, "I'd like a drink though, please, if it isn't much trouble."

Schwenkfeld nods back, then turns to smile with a shake of his head to Sofia, "I am not thirsty. But thank you. Little…uhh. I mean. Luke would like something."

"No problem, herr," She smiles down back at him. She nods, and turns. Ah hah, there's the pitcher. She has to leave a moment, to fetch a glass though. Sofia nods at Schwenkfeld as she passes. Thankfully with her gone to fetch a glass, the two will have a moment to chat alone.

Schwenkfeld turns back to Bauer, quietly looking down at the young man's arm. "Pappa wrote, your grandpa. He's worried about all the men in our family not being around to work the farm." He leans, trying to fluff the pillow up for Bauer with Bauer's shoulders still against it.

Bauer cringes a little at the adjustment under his shoulder, but doesn't complain. He nods a little again and says, "I guess pretty much all of us are serving. The farm'll get by, though. I'm not much help with the chores anyway, never have been very strong."

Momentarily, Sofia will return. She has a glass, and will pour the water, standing away to let the two talk. She seems content to let the two have their peace. "Here you go herr," Sofia smiles and brings the water to Bauer. She'll offer the glass to his right arm, the uninjured one. "If you need any help, please just ask." But she seems to respect pride and gives him a chance.

Schwenkfeld stops the moving of the pillow after a moment. "Ohh" and makes a face, "Sorry. I will let Nurse Sofia do that next time." He lowers himself into a crouch beside the bed. "See? She brings good water? She was in Poland with us too." and nods up to Sofia, giving a bit of a silly broad smile.

Bauer accepts the glass from Sofia and smiles, "Thanks." He takes a sip and then looks back up to Schwenkfeld and blinks, "Really?" He looks back to Sofia and says, "I guess I should have figured, but didn't know nurses stayed with units that long."

Schwenkfeld smiles and points to his Iron Cross first class medal. "I got this in Poland. It was when I saved an officer's life. Another soldier got one too." He seems happy that Bauer's alert and able to converse, and that he's under Sofia's care seems to cheer Otto as well.

Sofia laughs softly, "They'll never get rid of me. I seem to be stuck. Or rather you all seem to be stuck with me? Who knows." She seems a little amused. Sofia tilts her head, "I am a bit unusual I suppose. But, it's no worry. I get better as I learn out here." Sofia nods at Schwenkfeld. "I am glad to see you are awake too," She looks to Bauer. He's going to be sore, but what can she do?

Schwenkfeld nods down to Bauer, his expression warm and seeming to understand the fatigue. "I know what that's like. You heal and get better and we'll drive into France soon!" A thumbs-up for the wounded soldier as he steps back to leave, helping Sofia a bit with whatever seems to be her next task before he goes.

"Of course, you rest now," She smiles at Bauer and will move the pillows to let him lie down. Sofia nods to Schwenkfeld and grins at that. "Thank you both," For being cooperative and helpful. "I'm glad a lot of them have stopped trying to escape," She notes cheerily. Sofia is for the time being, mostly cleaning and on call. Meaning whoever needs her probably just needs to yell.

Schwenkfeld gives a hearty laugh, helping the nurse for a bit with heavy lifting then heading back to his duties afterwards.
