He giggles. This causes some blood to almost sting his eyes and he is distracted for a moment.

"I find more useful to empathize than to shift blame."

"And how has that been working out for you so far today?" She produces a handkerchief and blots at the blood on his forehead.

He holds still.

"Well, today I helped a nice lady and then met a celebrity. That sure describes a good day."

"Well. Why don't you see if you can keep that streak going and not have a concussion, hmm?"

Permalink

Snort. "Sure, since you asked so nicely."

Permalink

"That's what I like to hear."

She takes his hand and places it to press the handkerchief against the injury.

"Do you know the shop-owner, or are you just inclined to random acts of drive-by heroism?"

Permalink

"I ate at her place a couple of times. But I was just around and noticed the commotion. It wasn't trying to be heroic."

Permalink

"Do you often stumble into accidental heroism?"

Permalink

"Can't say my life is that interested, no." Once again that nice smile.

The ambulance is approaching them.

Permalink

"I'm not entirely sure you would notice if it were!"

She flags down the ambulance.

"Well, I promise this is the first time I put myself in harms way to protect a purple during a riot."

The ambulance pulls over. They ask if Shian needs a ride too.

Permalink

"I'd like to ride with Karo, please, and make sure that he's all right."

Permalink

They let her. And Karo is thankful. "How long are you going to stay in town?"

Permalink

"Two weeks was the plan. But it's hard to know for sure, with ... all this."

Permalink

"I'm so sorry. This must be the worst hour to travel abroad."

Permalink

 

"A lot of people have it a lot worse than me. Including, today, you."

Permalink

"Still, do you have a place to stay?"

Permalink

"You are bleeding from the head and you're wondering if I have a place to stay? Yes, I have a hotel room."

Permalink

"I'm multitasking! It's a valuable blue skill!"

Permalink

"Next thing you'll be telling me that you can bleed and chew gum at the same time."

Permalink

"I can't say I tried that one."

"Please, sir," says a paramedic, "just lay down until we get to the hospital."

Permalink

"Be good and don't make that poor man's life harder," Shian agrees.

Permalink

"Alright, alright. I will obey the expert's opinion."

Permalink

"Good. And if you're planning on getting into fights often, maybe you should pick up some self-defense."

Permalink

"I context the part about this counting as 'getting into a fight'. But that is reasonable, yeah. Can't count on helpful celebrities every time."
