Talk about a disaster.

The Devil can feel it everywhere and taste the familiar tang of blood. But what he hears is worse, the poor kid who chose to wear a mask and get tangled up with Avenger business and led them both into this stupid fight. He knows his apartment is nearby. The sirens wail in the distance and Matt moves, reaching to touch Spider-man's shoulder.

"Can you move? I know someone who can help you, but we need to get out of here."

Peter should honestly be used to this by now. But it never gets any easier, this life they lead.

His whole body feels like a bruise, or worse. He's pretty sure his shoulder is completely out of its socket and fuck, does that hurt. This is why he doesn't go anywhere near Manhattan.

Peter hisses when Matt touches his shoulder, jerking away in a way that only makes it more painful. If he could think more clearly through the pain, he'd probably realize that he heals faster than Matt - and they're both in a pretty bad way.

"Yeah, I can move. Should I move, the better question." Peter grits his teeth and gets up onto his knees. "If I web us away, you'll have to hold on. I can't - my shoulder's fucked."

"No time like the present to find out."

Matt helps where he can, keeping his hands firmly on the other man's shoulders to steady him. "Don't try. We're only two blocks over. If we hurry we can make it to my apartment and out of trouble."

For now. Matt does his best to gently hoist up Peter while trying to rush him. No time for dawdling.

"You're a lot more adventurous than I took you for. Congrats."

It fucking burns, but Peter consoles himself with the fact that he's had worse. Well, probably. It's something to get him onto his feet, okay? "And if we just end up leading them to your apartment?"

Peter's pretty sure his ankle is rolled, or broken, but he tries not to lean on Matt too much. "You know, Deadpool was right about the red thing. I can't tell where you're bleeding from. Niiiice."

"They don't call me Daredevil for nothing."

Matt starts to drag Peter down the alley, moving as quick as they can. No big deal, just two guys in costumes and masks. The blind leading the injured. He huffs and stops, hiding them in the shadows of a building.

"It'll be fine. They won't follow and if they do they'll just meet my alter ego. I'm going to carry you. Do you have any injuries that might get in the way of that?"

"Alright Evel Knievel, chill it."

You know, in the right neighborhood that excuse might even fly. As it was, Matt had a kickass back-up disguise; just ditch the Devil suit and pretend to be a lost blind dude. Practically foolproof.

"Great, blind bleeding lawyer hides Spiderman." Peter shook his head, sagging a little. "I don't think so. It's not fair, I'll be fine. Maybe I'll even stop hemorrhaging blood."

"Don't be a martyr. That's my job."

Matt does his best to be gentle. He piggybacks Peter, it seems the safest way right now, and, while his own pains and the extra weight throw off his senses, he manages to be quick about it. Too bad they have to go through the front door. Matt's glad none of his neighbours see.

"And you do it so well."

Peter tries to support some of his own weight, he really does, but when Matt lifts him up he starts to get a little dizzy and it becomes a more challenging task than he thought.

"My entire body is protesting being alive right now."

"I know. I might have some advil."

Sorry, Peter, Matt knows this sucks. He kicks the door closed behind him and moves to deposit Peter as carefully as possible on the couch. Matt grabs his phone, too, and makes a call on his way to find painkillers.

"You don't have to take off the mask if you don't want to, but a friend of mine is coming. She's a nurse. She's used to this shit. She'll do what she can for you."

"I appreciate the effort, but unless you have enough to tranq a horse it probably won't help much. My system burns through everything."

Peter wants to protest being laid out on the couch - he was going to ruin it by bleeding all over the damn thing - but when Matt sets him down it's all he can do to wheeze out a thank you.

"You have your own nurse on call? Damn, dude."
