There went the other knee, straight to the dock. Cody would have thought that being in so much pain meant that his knee slamming down like that wouldn't really get through given the sensory overload. He had no such luck; in fact, the pain shooting up through him made him wish he could just tear his leg off at the hip and be done with the pain.
"H-Hey Cooper, how about you hurry it up over there, h-huh? No big fucking rush..." Cody said through forced whispers. Cooper was moving about and fiddling with something. Really, he was fiddling with many things and had at least made his intentions clear that he was going to be trying to patch Cody up. With each passing second that Cooper spent rummaging through in a panic, it became easier to realize that the guy had probably never done something of this sort before. Hell, it felt like he had never so much as had to fetch a band-aid for somebody.
While he waited, Cody passed the time by bleeding onto the dock... as fun an activity as any at the moment. His right hand remained firmly planted on the wound, trying to apply pressure to hinder the damned flow of blood. As much as even looking at the hole hurt immensely, the pain was well worth staving off death. His left hand had found the dock and was clawing at the space between two boards, trying to push through all on their own simply out of the habit and having nothing better to do.
Relief wasn't something strongly felt at this time, but something akin to it bubbled up when Cooper held up some materials that looked fairly promising. That feeling then magically poofed away when Cooper subsequently revealed he had no idea how to use them. It wasn't rocket science... but then again... it wasn't rocket science. This meant that somebody with experience with patching up wounds, and Cody had a little, could pull this off even through the searing fires of pain.
"Give it here, damn it," Cody snapped without meaning to as he roughly snatched the materials out of Cooper's hands, a little bit rougher than he had truly meant to. He was halfway to rolling from his knees to his butt when he realized that he'd probably have to pull off his pants to get this done properly.
He only hesitated for a moment. Then, with hands trembling slightly from the pain, Cody worked the button and zipper of his jeans before tugging down the waist band. His boxers, drenched in blood and ruined by the bullet, were barely covering up the wound themselves. He tugged down that side as well, not exactly placing modesty above his life at the current moment.
"Fuck's sakes..." Cody grunted, opening the gauze bandage and placing it over the wound. He would have to tape it for it to stay there, but right now, he just wanted to press it in place with his hand and curl up for a little while. This was, funny enough, not the first time in his life he had been in this much pain. It was, however, the first time he felt there was a real chance of him dying, with any opportunistic asshole coming in to kill him, even Tyler returning to finish the job.
Cody squinted his eyes shut as a fear he felt and wanted to address BEFORE Mr. Blam-Blam-Blam arrived returned to his mind.
"You know what, Cooper?" Cody said without thinking. "Don't know what the fuck you're up to, or if I can trust you, or if I can trust anybody. So do me a fucking favor." A wince. He dared pry one eye open to see some spots of red showing through the bandage. He might have to fetch another, assuming he lived through this.
"There's a gun on the dock. If you're going to fucking kill me, if you're going to try and win for yourself, then you pick it up and you fucking shoot me. Because I swear, this is the best fucking chance you're going to get."
