Challenge #00970-B239: One Agumentative Walk Following a Bad Spill

“Please put me down it’s just a sprained ankle"

(Prompt from CallMeGallifreya on Tumblr)

"Mikug seeing way human go down. Mikug knowing is pain-of-death."

Reeva sighed. "Mikug forgetting self is Deathworlder. Self is fine. Self has to strap it and limp for a while."

There were drawbacks to working with heavy-grav cogniscents, and this was one of them. "Mikug taking human to mediks. Mediks helping."

The only language they shared was Broken GalStand, which made understanding a little more complicated. "Mediks giving Reeva elastic bandage and crutch, plus fond farewell."

"Mikug seeing pain-of-death."

Reeva, knowing that she wasn't making any headway, started parroting Monty Python. "It's only a flesh wound," she griped.

Mikug was going to get another lecture about interspecies medicine when this was over.
