What to do? Oh dear, oh dear. This was a bad situation indeed. "Well, you're doing a terrific job so far. Good for you!" As if that would make the girl feel any better about her situation. Mnko stood there nervously, trying to be reassuring. Oh well, nothing was better than the truth, right?
"You're quite right. You're stuck all alone with nothing to bring in. That's not all that good. And you know it too! Good for you. By the way, you have a lot of hair. Very long. I'm not fond of hair myself, but others here seem to like it. Good for you!"
Mnko scratched the back of his bald head. What else could he say? The water alien let out a sigh. Tea! Tea was needed. Oh yes. Some good reassuring tea! But she had tea already, didn't she? Oh dear. This wasn't good. He should had used his special tea. Special tea always made everyone feel better. Like that pleasant man, the professor. Ah, but he needed to focus on this girl. Yes, the girl.
The doctor let out a sigh, before moving closer to the girl. He dragged one of his wooden stools closer to the bed, sitting right next to her afterwards. He raised a wet, cold hand and placed it on the girl's. He always hated touching these humans. They were always so warm, with that red blood cursing through their veins instead of blue. What odd creatures they were!
"Don't worry, my dear." He said in what hoped was a reassuring voice. "I'm sure it won't be that big. The things they do here! All these technology! It's impressive. Maybe it'll be a tiny tank. You probably won't even need a cart to drag it around. You can just hold it like a baby!" Who knew what they had for her though? And, really, he just was trying to help. Besides, he didn't really think she understood. Eyes of society? What society indeed! "But dear, we're all different here. You have nothing to worry about. Everyone is a reject. Not just you."
She was asking about the next step and Mnko crossed his arms, thinking of it. "Well, most go to the offices of registration... That could be a good place for you too. They register you, of course. Give you a POD and can help you find something to do. It's one of the rules, to be useful. Unless you're a student. That can work too."
