Raventail lands as Kora quickly unstraddles the Loftwing and runs to do her job as the Medic
"Severe blunt force trauma, Sir. Ocktorock hit him square at the nape of the skull. You get hit in that spot and you're knocked out cold."
Kora takes out her medkit, laying Vijay down on his stomach. She removes any headwear and pushes any hair out of the way to examine the wound. the contusion was starting to bruise. from her kit she pulls out a salve made of Hylian Herb and Armoranth, and applies some to the wound, hoping that would be enough to at least get him steady.
"I don't think he'll be moving for a while.. hard to tell though"
It was already noon when Vijay stirred. He groaned and looked around him, all three were sitting down on the forest floor and having refreshments. It might be 45°C already Vijay flinched. the hot blazing sun and the humid air of the forest didn't help him, not a bit. He pulled out his haversack and picked up a bottle of pumpkin soup. Gradually, he popped the cork and drank it. It was cold but surprisingly,it was delicious.
He felt somewhat better.
He saw Verdauga beside him, stroked it gently and fed it some pumpkin soup. Regaining his strength, he called out for others.
"Heya! I'm alright. Where are we going first? To sky view temple or the Sealed grounds?"
Kora feels the cold 45 F air of the Forest. it was a bit nippy, but she was glad that Vijay wasn't paralyzed by the Octorok
"I see the Octorock didn't hinder your ability to speak... If I had to guess, I'd say we go to the Sealed Grounds, and let our Loftwings nest, so we can continue our journey on foot, as the plan was understood by me, right, Sir?"
Vijay cast a jaundiced eye on storm.
"If it had then you would miss my warbles! Alright then, I'll leave Verdauga to rest here.
Don't worry Commander I'm fine now. "
He drew out his Bo and practiced a few swings then expertly swished it through a branch in a nearby Deku tree. A single nut fell off from the tree. Vijay started munching it.
Kora runs over to Vijay
" Don't Eat Tho-" BANG Kora was blinded for a short time by the flash of the Deku Nut, a side effect of the Nut's properties made the insides full of a Sulphorous extract. any soldier would have known that ground up Deku Nuts is what people put inside cannons when gunpowder is scarce.
