Country? State? Maybe city, if the other thing is neighborhood?

She's probably going somewhere with this. He keeps listening.

"Ja urodziłam się w Wisce i żyje w Wisce. Ja jestem Wiską i mówię po Wisku. Gdzie żywi panna?"

Permalink

"Jesteś Wisko - uh, Wiską. Jestem Hárī."

Permalink

"Uh... 'mówiś'?"

Permalink

She points at her mouth. "Ja mówię po Wisku."

Permalink

"Ja mówię po Ilan, Hárī..." Wobbly gesture. "Il Esilu, Erelan."

Permalink

"Jak panna dostała do Czerecie?"

Permalink

...What. Shrug.

Permalink

"Panna była w Hari, tak? I teraz panna jest w Czerecie i nie wie nic o Wisce..."

Permalink

"Tak." Shrug. He tries to look very bewildered about it, maybe she'll pick up on him being even more confused than she is about it.

Permalink

She frowns, then spins him around to pull up his shirt a touch so she can see his back.

"...Możesz iść ze mną do dom mojego przyjaciela."

Permalink

Um? Um!

He doesn't fight her - yet - but there had better be a comprehensible explanation eventually.

Permalink

"Przepraszam. Nie wiedziałam czy panna jest człowiekiem."

Permalink

...If he gestures at the pictures she was drawing before will she get the hint and draw whatever she's talking about?

Permalink

She can draw a crude stick figure, sure. "To jest człowiek." And another one next to it that looks basically the same. "To nie jest człowiek. Ogląda jak człowiek ale nie ma plecy."

Permalink

"Człowiek?"

Permalink

She gestures at herself as a whole.

Permalink

He draws a snake. "Człowiek?"

Permalink

She shakes her head. "Wąż."

Permalink

"Jestem człowiek?"

Permalink

She shrugs. "Myśle że tak."

Permalink

He draws a stick figure with pointy ears. "Człowiek?"

Permalink

"Człowiek jest marenlendar. Jestem człowiek." And unfortunately he doesn't have enough Wisku to ask why she's so worried about his species.
