Blinding pain welcomed him as Haruko emerged from unconsciousness, pain so bright and fierce that it almost made him vomit. He groaned and lightly touched his head, thus making him gasp when once more excruciating pain flashed through his head. Haruko wimpered softly, he could hardly breath, was struggling hard to draw in some air. His eyes were still tightly closed. Blind and in horrible pain, not being able to breathe, he slowly felt a panic-attack rising in him. His instincts were screaming at him to calm down and he tried to order his abused brain. Air, he needed air first and foremost, so he quickly fumbled for the oxygen pod and activated it. “Ah….” Haruko took a deep breath and sank back into, what he just now recognized as soft grass.

Grass? Since when was there grass on spaceships? His mind was still way too befuddled to make sense of the whole situation he found himself in, but Haruko realized that it probably wouldn’t be the smartest idea to keep lying here unprotected. Slowly, his eyes blinked open and he found himself staring at the green leaves of a huge tree right above him. Not a spaceship then, he thought and frowned. The last thing he remembered was being on the ship and talking to his superior. What had happened in the meantime? Confused, he reached up to his head once more to check the injury, this time more carefully. Haruko fingered the right side of his frontal bone and quickly pulled his hand back again, when he felt the blood there. A lot of blood.

“Damn it!” he growled. Of course he knew that head injuries always bled more than other wounds, but it was still doing nothing to calm him down. Haruko got out the single band-aid and bandaged his head as well as he could while still lying on the ground. Only then did he attempt to raise from this position. A task he found harder to manage than one might think with the vertigo slamming into him full force, making the world fade in and out of his view. Still, he fought himself into a standing position and pulled out the gadget and turned it into a dagger. In case he was attackted, Haruko would at least have a weapon, though he doubted that he was in any shape to put up much resistance in a fight.
“I need to find the others.” He muttered under his breath. “…if there are any others.” Bad thought! Haruko looked around and noticed smoke rising into the air from a position slightly to his left, so he started in that direction. His pace was very slow, as he stumbled more than walked, bracing himself against the trees for support.

Finally, after what seemed like hours, he reached the source of the smoke. His ship, the one that he had been on, crashed! Haruko could only stare for several minutes, but the throbbing in his head made him stumble forward. He wouldn’t be able to keep conscious, much less upright, for much longer. “Hello?” he called as loud as he could which only made the pain worsen. “HEY! IS ANYONE HERE?”

Crashed! The beautiful spaceship, wrecked! How could that possibly have happened? It pained him greatly to see the damage that had been done to it from such a close distance as he stumbled alongside the ship. Over time it had become a home to Haruko and he had found his little places where he could withdraw for times when he felt the need to be alone. The room where he had been taught how to treat patients by his superior ... all destroyed! Nevertheless, he had been trained not to give up easily. It would be a good idea to search the ship for anything he might use. Food, more oxygen pods, medical equipment. Maybe some of it had survived the crash.

Suddenly there was a noise! Like a soft whisper, carried over to him as he slowly searched the wreck for any sign of life, but even in his current shape Haruko could easily make it out due to the quiet of the forest behind him. No animals could be seen or heard, no wind blowing through the leaves. Only the crackling sound of small fires that he could make out by the ship disrupted the silence. In a way it was eerie. The sudden move of turning his head into the direction of the noise sent the world spinning around him and Haruko had to brace himself against the ship so he wouldn't keel over. When finally the vertigo stopped, he proceeded towards the noise, eager to find some other survivors. He spotted an opening where parts of the ship had been obviously ripped off, so he carefully pulled himself through the hole into the ship. "Hello?" he called again and this time he received an answer from somewhere in front of him.

The smoke and lack of light made it hard to make out more than just shapes, but he recognized that voice almost immediately. "Sam?" Haruko stumbled forward and sank to his knees next to the older man. "I'm glad I found you." he whispered, relief palpable in his voice. Just then did he notice the third person in the room. "Moka!" So two others had survived the crash, that was good, though he did not dare to hope for more. "Are...Are you two alright?" Haruko had problems talking without slurring his speech, but he had to make sure to do his job, even with a concussion.

The fact that he just now noticed the injured leg of his comrade, said much about his befuddled mind. Usually, he was much more perceptive than that. "Lie still, I'm going to have a look at you leg, okay, Sam? Just try to relax." His voice took on the soothing tone which came naurally to him when treating patients. Gently, Haruko started to prob the injured limb with his fingers to see if the metal had broken the bone or hit one of the main arteries. When he was satisfied with what he found, Haruko turned back to the other man. "Al...Alright, Sam. Y-You will live, okay. But I need to remove the ...that metal so I can bandage your leg." Haruko placed hin hand one Sam's arm and rubbed in what he hoped was a comforting way. It was neccessary, but it would be painful and Sam was obviously exhibiting symptoms of a shock.

He could understand Sam's reluctance of having the metal removed, it would be very painful and the bloodflow would increase as well, so Haruko would have to be fast with fixing the bandage around the leg. Still, it was neccessary to remove it before an infection could set in. Anyway, they couldn't stay in this wreck forever and Sam wouldn't be able to move with the thing in his leg, so it had to be done now. Haruko closed his hand around the metal and started to pull it out, careful not to cause even more damage to the leg. As he had predicted, the blood started flowing more freely, now that the wound was gaping open. With shaking hands, he pressed a compress to the wound and bandaged it tighly to stop the bloodflow. "Alright, all done. Now we just have to watch you for signs of an infection setting in." he told Sam with a tired, but encouraging smile on his face.

Worried, Haruko watched Sam's breathing speed up and quickly took his pulse which was fairly racing. Moving closer to him, he grabbed his shoulders and tried to talk him through the pain. "It's okay, Sam. The pain wil receed soon. Just give it a few moments and try to breath slowly. In and out, in and out. That's it!" Haruko had problems keeping his own breathing regulated, as the pain in his head was worsening by the minute. He knew that he should be lying in bed and resting, but that wasn't an option right now.
Luckily, at least Sam's pain seemed to have gotten a bit better. Haruko smiled slightly to himself, touched by his companion's concern for his health. Usually it was him caring for others and he did enjoy doing so, but it still was nice to know that others cared for him as well. "I ...I'll be alright, just a slight concussion." he answered the question, then looked around the room they found themselves in. "What 'append? I can't seem to remember anythin'." he said slowly, his speech getting more slurred as he leaned against Sam's chair in exhaustion.

He felt himself drifting off and quickly pulled himself upright. This was not the time for sleeping, they didn't even know yet where they were. Wait, he did know where they were, in the spaceship. That was good, right? But why didn't it feel good? Oh...right, they had crashed. Why? Haruko realized that he was rambling and badly confused. "I...I don't feel so well.." he whispered before leaning to the side when he started vomitting. With a shaky hand, he rubbed his forehead, which felt cold and clammy. Tiredly, he leaned back against the chair and tried to slow his heartbeat which was a bit too fast for his liking.

"Your father?" Haruko asked confused, his voice rather quiet. Oh...right, the Commander. "Yes, alright. He could anywhere though, Sam." he said, watching the other boy get up. "My plans are pretty non-existing so far..." Haruko muttered. "Do you actually want to go out there? It will be dangerous." Still, he knew that he would follow Sam if that was going to be the plan.

Haruko smiled slightly at Sam and ran a hand through his messy hair to smooth it back. "Don't worry about me, Sam. I'm not dying." he said with a wink. True, right now he was feeling rather poorly and should probably be resting, but he also knew that he could push his body a bit more if need be. And for now they had to look for a safe place to spend the night. The wreck would be attracting other living beings, whatever they might be here on this planet, so they could stay here for much longer. And they also had to look for other survivors. They might not be the only people that got injured, but survived. Maybe there were more and now they needed help? Slowly, Haruko pulled himself up by using the seat he had been leaning against as a crutch. At Sam's words, he looked up.

"Krrt. Krrt." He too could hear the weird sound that had alerted his comrad and turned to the left. "What could that be?" he wondered, hoping it wasn't some savage creature. With their combined injuries it would be hard to fight right now, but Haruko still grabbed his dagger more tightly and braced himself for what would come. Sam was doing the same and had positioned himself in front of himself and Moka, ready to strike at the still invisible thing.
"Krrrt. Krrrt." The noise came again, much closer and much more threatening this time and Haruko nodded in understanding at Sam when he turned to him. They would have to fight, whether they wanted to or not. In his case it was the latter, but he wouldn't let his comrade face the danger on his own.

"Come on..." he growled under his breath, flexing his fingers around the weapon. The adrenalin was pushing back the throbbing pain in his head and he felt more alert than he had in quite a while, for now. He wasn't naive to believe it would last for long.
Suddenly, with a hiss, a lizzard jumped at Sam and he started struggling with it. Whatever Haruko had been expecting this wasn't it. Certainly, the lizzard was larger than was normal, but it didn't seem to be overly dangerous. Haruko couldn't help but start laughing when the tension drained from his body and he watched Sam fight with the creature all the while hollering at him to help. When he finally got rid of the animal, Sam just started ranting and Haruko laughed louder. "A great show, my dear Sam." he clapped his hands in mock applause, but his eyes were alight with mirth, he was glad that the mood had loosened a bit. "Are you okay, Sam?" he finally asked when his laughter died down, his expression rather sheepish. He usually didn't laugh at people, but this had been too funny.

Haruko chuckled and smiled at Sam. Who would have thought that the son of the commander had a sense of humour and could laugh about himself? Haruko had never been working closely with him before, but he started liking the other boy. Nevertheless, he did agree with his words. Who knew what kind of dangerous creatures could be found on this planet that were out for their blood at this very moment? "You're right. Wouldn't want to meet momma lizard now that you scared off her baby." he agreed smirking and stacked away his weapon. "Come on, Moka, we must get going. Or do you want to stay here?" Haruko held out his hand and pulled the girl into a standing position before following Sam out of the wrack.

They made their way through the forest, Sam at the front, then Moka and then Haruko who was still struggling a bit with his vertigo and headache, but as long as he could walk steadily, the pain was bearable. His grey eyes searched the shadows between the trees for unwanted company or even other survivors, but so far everything seemed calm. Maybe the creatures were only active at night? Suddenly, though, Sam stopped the little group and got out his weapon again, so Haruko followed his example immediately, trusting the other to know what he was doing. He turned his back towards the other two, in case an attack came from behind.

Thus they waited and Haruko chuckled slightly about the other's comment. "I'd cheer you on, Sam. Sounds like just the thing the idiot would do to get a laugh." he agreed, rolling his eyes. Though secretly, and he would never admit it even under threat of torture, he actually enjoyed the stupid antics of Blythe. His expression turned sad at the thought of him being dead, so at first, he didn't think anything off the odd chill that went down his back. Still, when Sam mentioned the cold as well, Haruko frowned in suspicion. "I feel it, too. Like all warmth is suddenly drawing away." he said, his voice lower than usual. He started to shiver slightly, not good at all, considering that they had been waking for quite a while. "I don't like that all..."

Haruko looked about himself uneasily. The decrease in temperature definitely wasn't normal and probably didn't originate just from the sun going down. But whatever the cause, he truely didn't want to find out right now. "Yes, someplace were we can light a fire without being seen would be good." he agreed and together they started searching for a suited place for the night. They would have to hurry, for the light was quickly fading and the shadows were getting longer and darker by the minute. Soon the darkness would be complete.

Finally, they found a small cave. It wasn't the place he would have wished for, but it would do for one night and tomorrow they would be able to find something better. For now, Haruko would try to make a fire. "I'll be right back, Sam. Just looking for some dry pieces of wood for a fire." he let the other boy know and started his search. They would need to look for something to eat tomorrow as well, but for now the most important thing was to stay warm, especially while they were sleeping.
A noise made Haruko look up, while he was crouched on the ground to gather wood. It had sounded like twigs being snapped under the weight of something. He tensed and waited, his body still and ready to jump out of the way should he be attacked, but nothing happened. Shaking his head, Haruko continued back into the cave.

The fire was crackling and Haruko moved closed to the warmth, as he was shivering slightly from cold and exhaustion. He moved closer to Sam so he could re-bandage his head better and smiled thankfully at him. "I fear my hands might have been a bit shaky when I did that." he said ruefully, wincing as the pain got worse. He hoped that the wound had stopped bleeing in the meantime, but it looked as though the blood had dried already. That was good, so it wasn't too bad then on the surface at least. If he had a bleeding in his brain there would be nothing to do about it anyway, so he just hoped for the best.
"Thank you, Sam." Haruko smiled gratefully at the older boy and squeezed his shoulder in thanks. "How's your leg? Has the bleeding stopped? Otherwise we might have to sew it." he stated, worried about Sam's injury.

Haruko let out a sigh of relief at hearing that Sam's wound wasn't bleeding any longer. He really wasn't in the mood to try and sew it together again and he doubted that his new-found friend would enjoy it much. "I'm glad to hear it." he said, trying to stiffle a yawn. He leaned back against the cool stone of the cave and pulled up his legs to his chest, wrapping his arms around them, so he could rest his chin on his knees. This time he couldn't hold back his yawn, after the crash, the concussion, the long walk through the forest, he was just cold, hungry and exhausted. "Do you think we should be taking turns in keeping guard, Sam?" he asked the older boy. "Just in case any dangerous animal decides we would make a good snack." Haruko said jokingly.

Sam's words made him chuckle, it was a subject he had often pondered about. "I think in the end, no matter how far advanced the human race gets, in a situation where they are stripped of everything, their whole technology, their whole equipment, they have to go back to their roots. Making fire, hunting for food, trying to survive." he said thoughtfully, closing his eyes. "That's why I try not to rely to much on all this modern technology. It has great advantages no doubt, but still, one should never forget how to live without it."
Haruko felt himself slowly dozing off, but he still smiled warmly at Sam's comment about their company. "I'm quite glad that I found you as well. Together our chances of survival are much greater than alone." he said softly before going quiet.

"Urg..." Haruko groaned slightly, coming back to consciousness at someone shaking his shoulder. He could only remember fragments of his dream, something about the three of them in a boat on the ocean with a shark following them the whole time. It didn't take a genius to figure out the meaning behind the dream. The boat and the ocean were the situation they had found themselves in. Stranded on a weird planet. The shark probably represented the danger that was following them. Savage creaures out for their blood. The only thing Haruko did not understand was that he had felt no danger from the shark. Weird ... very weird, but then again it was only a dream.

He heard some mutterings above him and blearily opened his eyes. He must have fallen asleep quite some time ago, he thought as he noticed the night had advanced quickly and it was pitch black outside so far that he couldn't see further than a few meters past the fire.
Looking up, he noticed Sam grinning at him and he slowly pulled himself into wakefulness. "Hey there, did I sleep for long?" he asked drowsily and shook his head as he sat up. It didn't really matter, he felt somewhat better and the headache had receeded as well. "Nevermind, just go to sleep, I'll stand guard." he told the older boy smiling and readied himself for a few hours of staying awake.

He leaned back against the cool stone wall and pulled out his dagger, spinning it in his fingers while he watched the fire. Haruko liked the colour of fire, the way it changed from a warm red to an orange and then to a slight yellow. Had he been on the ship, he would have gotten out his sketch book and drawn the scene. Moka and Sam were sleeping peacefully so far which was good, they would need their strenght tomorrow...or was is today already? It was hard to judge, but it also was not very important. In their situation, time was really not that important. As long as they found away out of here before ther oxygen went out.

Haruko stared into the fire, his thoughts drifting from one inconsequential subject to the next without really bothering to linger on anything for more than a few seconds. He still could not remember the crash or what had happened before. Had they been attacked? If so, by whom? Or was it just some technical problem? He shook his head, he wouldn't be able to force the memories back into his consciousness. If they would return, then they would do so in their own time. Nothing for him to do about it.
His mind turned to the problem at hand. How to get off this blasted planet in a matter of a few days? Their oxygen wouldn't last for ever and without it the chances of survival would be quite slim. But would they be able to repare the spaceship? From the damage he had witnessed it was truely hard to believe. So their only chances seemed to lie somewhere on this planet.

Suddenly a gasp was heard from behind him and Haruko turned around and walked back to Sam who looked as if he had just woken from a bad nightmare. "Are you okay, Sam?" he asked concerned for his friend. It obviously was the night for strange dreams, he though and shook his head. He smiled slightly at the sleepy expression on Sam's face and the way blearily looked around, hardly able to keep his eyes open. It was a rather cute look on the usually focused face.

Haruko nodded at Sam and they woke their female comrad from her night rest. She also seemed to be looking a bit better than the day before, so that booded well for their journey through the forest. He doubted that they would be able to avoid danger for long and it would only be to their advantage to be as healthy as possible to survive.
Haruko burst out laughing at the image of Sam in a loincloth made of fur running around chasing after animals for dinner. "I think, I would be happy with some fruits or berries as well for now. I think we should try to find some water though. I'm really thirsty." he said, slowly calming down again.

Haruko couldn't help but pout slightly at the prospect of not getting anything sweet to eat for quite a while. He loved fruits and berries and usually nicked some during the meals on the ship. Now though, he would have to make due with meat ... how grant! He sighed and hurried along after Sam and Moka. Thus, they were walking for a while and Haruko was staring ahead, trying to think of a way to best hunt for some animals. They didn't have many weapons at hand and who knew what kind of animal lived on this planet. Out of the corner of his eyes he found Sam staring at him and blushed slightly. Why on earth would he be blushing? That didn't make sense, he thought slightly angry at himself. The other boy was probably just trying to figure out who of them was to go hunting and Haruko would probably be faster without having an injured leg. Still, more than once he found his eyes being drawn to the older boy next to him.

That's why he saw how suddenly Sam seemed to fold into himself and collapse to the ground. Quickly, Haruko jumped forward and gabbed his arms to slow down the fall. His eyes looked troubled and slightly scared as they searched Sam's face for the reason for this. He didn't have to wait long before the other boy started ranting, though admitedly it was a rather tired rant and now that he looked closer at his friend, Haruko could see the exhaustion reflected in his eyes. With a sigh, he sat down close to him and and put his hand on his shoulder. "Sam, I know you are exhausted and that is fine and perfectly understandable. But you can't give up now." he told him in a calm, but soothing. "You just can't. Moka and I need you now. You are our leader and we will support you till the end, but you must not give up!" Haruko's voice got slightly louder, but he knew that if they gave up now, all would be lost. "We still have several days before our oxygen runs out, but till than we have to try and find a way out of here."
Slowly, he turned Sam's face so he was looking at him. "Together we will manage, alright Sam? I promise." Haruko smiled at him, trying to show his confidence in their little group.

Relief made his body go limb when Haruko saw that Sam wasn't going to give up so easily. Hopefully, his words had helped him a bit. He squeezed his shoulder once more to let him know that thanks were not needed and then pulled himself up again. He helped his friend up as well, as he was still struggling with his injured leg and smiled at Sam. "No worries, we all feel a little pissed off with the world sometimes, right?" he said jokingly, to lighten up the mood a bit. They couldn't lose their spirit now that they needed to be as strong as they could.

Haruko waited patiently next to him, as Sam checked his map. Maybe he could make out a good route for them to walk on, the map was their only way of orientation on this planet they got after all, so they would have to trust it. Finally, Sam seemed to have found the best way for them to take, and Haruko nodded in understanding at the direction given.
Suddenly, though he could feel Sam tense up next to him as he saw something on the map that obviously weren't good news. "What it is?" he asked uneasily, tensing up as well at the answer to his question. So their were going to have to fight, perfect! "I think we won't manage to outrun them, especially with your leg. So we will have to fight." Haruko got out his dagger and changed it into a long sword. He had been practicing with it during training lessons, so it was his prefered weapon and here was enough space to wield the sword.

He grasped the sword in both hands and positioned him next to Sam, facing the direction where the danger was heading from. He licked his lips nervously and steeled himself for the attack when a loud growl was to be heard. "Here we go..." Haruko muttered and in the next instance something large and furry with large wings jumped at them. Without thinking, Haruko swang his weapon towards the creature. It shrieked loudly in pain when steel connected with flesh, but it wasn't more than a large gash. Haruko backed away, hoping that Sam would be able to deal with the other creature and readied himself for the next attack of the thing, whatever it was.

Slowly Haruko and the beast circled each other, sizing the enemy before launching another attack. The animal was one, he had never seen before, a bit like a mix between a bear and a bat, but that hardly could be possible, right? Then again, what was not possible in this universe? In all the years travelling through space he had seen and heard more outlandish things than he would have ever managed to imagine, so why shouldn't such a creature exist on this weird planet. Really, nothing should be able to shock him any longer.

Again, with a deep growl the beast jumped at him, but this time Haruko was prepared better for the attack and smoothly side-stepped the creature's long claws. In a swift move, he brought up his sword and rammed it into the animal's thigh, eliciting a pained roar. Haruko grinned predatorily, eyes glinting with barely supressed excitement. Although the fight was very dangerous, he did enjoy the rush that came with the adrenalin and it had been a while since he was involved in a real fight like that.
One of the large wings came swinging at his head and only at the last second Haruko managed to duck under the leathery appendix, not noticing the claw soaring at him from the other side. "AH!" he exlaimed, as pained shot through his side where the creature had managed to strike him. Haruko stumbled backwards, away from it and clutched his side with his left hand, keeping himself upright by using his sword as a crutch. Out of the corner of his eyes, he could see Sam struggling with the other beast, several scratches adorning his face. Still, he was managing, so Haruko turned his attention back to the danger towering over him.

Suddenly though, the creatures turned away from their prey and fled and Haruko breathed a sigh of relief. Sweat was tickling down his face and he rubbed it off with his hand after putting hin weapon away. "Brilliant fight, huh?" he stumbled over to the other two with a grin on his face. He looked down at Sam who sported an equally broad smile and fell to his knees next to him. "We did it!" he agreed with the sentiment.

Haruko grinned down at Sam. He also was quite happy to see that they came out of this fight relatively unharmed. Those creatures could have seriously hurt them, but somehow luck had been on their side this time. "Wha....?" He was surprised when suddenly Sam pushed him over, but couldn't keep from laughing loudly at his friends antics. That guy really knew how to lighten the mood and find an outlet for the rest of the adrenalin which was still cursing through their veins.

Haruko laughed and pretended to fight Sam. "Oh no!" he exclaimed dramatically, "Help! The beast is upon me!" He laughed again and smiled up at his friend. "You really make a convincing tiger, Sam." he told him, chuckling warmly. "No wonder these animals ran away like that, you must have scared them off."
He lay down against the soft grass ad looked up into the clear sky with a sigh. This planet was actually quite beautiful ... if there was only air to breath and no predatory creatures. He looked over at Sam and smirked slightly. It was really great to just hang out with him for a while. Should they ever make it off this planet, then he would definitely try to continue building a friendship with him. "Should we get going?" he asked after a while. Haruko really was getting quite hungry and they should try to hunt for something edible.

Haruko laughed at Sam's muttered comment and shook his head. He himself loved the be outside in the nature, feeling the wind in his hair and the warm sun on his face. The fresh smell of the world never failed to cheer him up and give him strenght, and as they were always travelling with spaceships, they rarely saw any sort of nature for months on end which could be quite depressing at times. Always being locked up in the ship... But alas, that was the life they had chosen and it often was quite interesting, so he really shouldn't complain.

They got up from their place on the grass and started looking for something to eat. Haruko swallowed a comment about having said so before, but couldn't hide his smirk when Sam agreed to look for fruits instead. If he was honest, he was childishly happy to be getting his fruits after all, but tried to hide his beaming smile as much as possible, it was rather embarrassing after all.
He walked over to the bush Sam had pointed out and pulled of one of the apples, sniffing slightly at it. It really did smell quite sweet and he took a small bite of it. "You're right." he agreed. "They are delicious!" Haruko bit into the fruit again, sticky juice running down his chin, though he didn't care. He was just glad that they could finally have something to eat and something so nice made it even better. He moved closer to the fire, as the air had cooled considerably since this morning and rubbed his hands together.

Haruko was slightly startled at Sam's question regarding his family, and looked thoughtfully at the other boy. He usually didn't talk much about his family, not because something bad had happened to him in his childhood or anything like that, but for the simple reason that he didn't know what to tell others. "There isn't really much to tell you, Sam. My parents died when I was ... " he thought back to what he had been told as he could barely remember the incident, "four, I think..." He shook his head. "Anyway, they were part of a crew of a spaceship as well and when they died and I was given to Lucian, he was the ship doctor there and he raised me till I was fourteen and then I joined your father's crew to be trained in medicine as well." Haruko's expression was a bit sad, as he just now noticed how long it had been since he had last seen his foster-father. Lucian was not really the father type, more like a mentor, but Haruko cared much for him as he was the only family he had left.
"What about your family, Sam?" he asked the other boy, "Do you have any family besides your father?"
