Marked

Judith checked Tatyana's hair for signs of a sting or barb. She had what Judith would consider quite an unusual hair style.

"I can't see anything obviously wrong, but..." Judith put her hand to her nose.
"oh, it smells a bit.... funky"

Tatyana was shocked. "Are you sure?!"

Judith suddenly got nervous, she didn't want to offend her new survival companion, because she realised she didn't know what her hair would normally have smelled like.

"I... I think so. Maybe it's marked you for others to attack? We'd better hurry up. Especially as it's almost dark."

John helped Tatyana up, and they all started walking closer together.

"So, what was your job on the ship? I'm surprised we never met, not even in a corridor." Judith asked her.
