Squatting down next to Sprints, Blades gave him a slight smile. “That's the way. Kicking aft is the best thing to do during a war, am I right? Of course I am.”
Even though Sprints' injuries were extensive and easily viewed, Blades conducted a thorough inspection on his body, searching for any other damaged areas that might have eluded him. It was vital to gather as much information as possible before he could help his comrade. He did wish First Aid were here, however; his knowledge in these particular situations would prove to be highly beneficial.
Blades continued to check for further damage. “Oh, I'm just dandy. Yes, sir, I am feeling great...”
Unbeknown to Sprints, he wasn't trying to come across as sarcastic. The Battlecharger incident had instilled a bitterness looming in his mood. Ridding himself of it was difficult, but that didn't mean his fellow Autobots had to endure his sour disposition. Fortunately the present matter administered a firm grasp on it, allowing him to focus more efficiently.
Satisfied his search yielded nothing more than what Blades had already seen, he gingerly rested a hand on Sprints' arm. “All right, let's get you out of here.” He slid his hands underneath his body. “We're not that far away from Hot Spot and the others, so I'm going to carry you there, okay? This, uh, may hurt a bit, but only just a bit. I promise.”
Blades carefully scooped up Sprints and ultimately performed a technique the other Protectobots frequently employed on the battlefield: a firemech's lift. With Sprints slung over his shoulder-plates, Blades began manually transporting the injured Autobot to where Hot Spot and the others would be doing battle with several large blazes. He traversed with caution, the ground before him crowded with wreckage of varying sizes.
As he trekked, he opened a comm-channel to Hot Spot. >>”Hot Spot, Blades here. Sorry for the wait; on the way there I found Sprints. Anyway, he's in bad shape, so I'm carrying him to where you are. Once I've done that, I'll be able to help you with those fires.”<<
