Russkra Gets Checked By Inara 5th Of August

[11:04] <Inara> The Valletta had almost reached its destination after a very long time. For the Medical section of the ship, that time had been spent filing away a lot of busywork in between a handful of very strange events. -
[11:06] <Inara> As Inara stared at her planner for the day, she felt her stomach twist slightly in a telltale manner. Maybe one of those strange events was upon her now… -
[11:07] <Inara> She diverted her attention from the planner to her housecall medikit. "Ready to head to the next appointment, Champ?"
[11:36] <Minaplo> ["Who is next, doctor?"]
[11:40] <Inara> "Madame Shrinemaiden."
[11:46] <Minaplo> ["Then I will load my Shrinepath biology notes, doctor!!!"}
[11:52] <Inara> "Thanks." Inara led the way to the guest room where Russkra Ssatra had been living and pushed the little buzzer next to her door. What would await her when the door opened?
[11:55] <Minaplo> [The door would open to reveal the juvenile Shrinepath Devoted standing there. She eyed Inara warily. "Yes?"]
[12:39] <Inara> "Doctor's visit!" said Inara cheerfully. "Congratulations! You have a checkup scheduled."
[12:42] <Minaplo> ["Prudent. Proceed!"]
[12:45] <Inara> "So how have you been feeling?" Inara demanded, stepping into the room.
[12:46] <Minaplo> ["Like you have to ask, Twiceborn?" Said Russkra. "I'm feeling perfectly fine. Ready to take my place and conquer all before me!"]
[12:48] <Inara> "Admirable. I hope that doesn't include us." She turned to Champ. "Start a basic bioscan, please."
[12:49] <Minaplo> ["Scanning!!!"-
[12:49] <Minaplo> [Russkra eyed the medibot suspiciously for a moment before turning toward Inara. "I'm pretty sure I'm fine. Perfect health!"]
[12:51] <Inara> "Everyone always says that. What if you're sick, but you just don't know it yet?"
[12:52] <Minaplo> ["I have an extraordinary sense of my own health, thank-you-very-much."]
[12:54] <Inara> "I admire your confidence, but not even doctors have an extrodinary sense of their own health. Checkups don't hurt anyone, so it's better to just do them."
[13:06] <Minaplo> ["I understand that." Said Russkra. "I just want you to know that I'm healthy."]
[13:11] <Inara> "…" Inara peered at her closely. "Well, we'll see. If it doesn't turn out that way, we'll give you a shot to perk you right up."
[13:24] <Minaplo> ["A shot?!"]
[13:28] <Inara> "Yes. With vitamins in it. Or an antibiotic. It depends on what's going on with you."
[13:28] <Minaplo> ["Nothing. Nothing's going on with me, you vat-grown nag!"]
[13:30] * Inara huffed! "How rude! I'm doing it for your sake, you know."
[13:31] <Minaplo> ["For my sake?"]
[13:36] <Inara> "Yes. Making sure you're healthy is really important. And that can only be achieved with medical technology, like Champ, here."
[13:38] <Minaplo> ["Doctor!!!" Screeched Champ. "I'm detecting a vastly elevated heart rate and gastric dysfunction!"-
[13:38] <Minaplo> ["What!? No you're not!" Shouted Russkra. "Stop lying, you dumb robot!"]
[13:45] <Inara> "Huh. Never mind the shot, then. Champ, cross-check anything unusual that might be causing the stomach issues just in case, but I think I know what this is."
[13:49] <Minaplo> ["Checking, Doctor!!!"-
[13:49] <Minaplo> ["What is it? Not that it's anything, of course." Said Russkra.]
[13:51] <Inara> "Our Twiceborn food hasn't been agreeing with you," said Inara simply. "Also, you need to take a deep breath and calm down."
[13:53] <Minaplo> ["Grrr… I am calm!" She said. Her tail uncurled from around her waist and went stiff, vibrating aggressively.]
[14:00] <Inara> "Then be calmer. Meditate."
[14:01] <Minaplo> ["No one gets to tell a Maiden of the Shrinepath when to meditate!"]
[14:07] <Inara> "All right. Then you tell me: what would get you to relax?"
[14:08] <Minaplo> ["Punching your stupid robot."]
[14:09] <Inara> "The poor robot's just following orders, you know."
[14:09] <Minaplo> ["So you're suggesting I should punch you instead?"]
[14:10] <Inara> "Hmph. Is this really the only way?"
[15:22] <Minaplo> ["Well, you could just give up and admit that I'm not upset."]
[15:27] <Inara> "Very well. You are not upset in the least."
[15:34] <Minaplo> ["There." Said Russkra. "Now, as a reward, you may have a special treat."]
[15:36] <Inara> "Oh really?" Inara couldn't quite hide her amusement.
[15:37] <Minaplo> [Russkra eyed her suspiciously.-
[15:38] <Minaplo> [Then she gestured at a nearby table, which had only cushions, no proper seats. "Sit."]
[15:44] <Inara> "Hm." Inara simply obliged.
[15:46] <Minaplo> ["There you go."]
[15:49] <Inara> "Sitting is my reward, huh?"
[15:50] <Minaplo> ["It's a rare honour to be invited to sit by a Priestess." Said Russkra, preening. "And it also shows that you have more grace, wit, charm and propriety than that boarhand Mist."-
[15:50] <Minaplo> [Champ hesitated, then slowly began to hover lower.-
[15:50] <Minaplo> [Russkra slapped the top of his chrome shell. "NO!"-
[15:51] <Minaplo> [Champ reluctantly hovered back up.]
[15:59] <Inara> "Hey, don't be mean to the robot. And what's this about Mist, now…?"
[16:03] <Minaplo> ["That crass ruffian. Shortly after you all rescued me, he came in here, demanding to be told all about the Shrinepath. But I couldn't even get him to sit down and listen before he threw a massive tantrum and ran away insulting me. He's really quite childish and pathetic."]
[16:12] <Inara> "How disppointing for you when you were just trying to help him."
[16:13] <Minaplo> ["Precisely." Said Russkra. "He was so pushy, too. He wanted to learn from me, but when I tried to make him sit, he just used his AT Field to hover so he could tower over me."-
[16:14] <Minaplo> [She leaned forward towards Inara. "Between you and me? Captain Hyuga needs to do more to keep your males in their place."]
[16:28] <Inara> "Heh. She probably thinks she needs to pick her battles. Still, I'd love to see her reaction if you told her that."
