How had Isabel done it? He tried to think back to his own arrival, the questions he'd had and how they had been explained to him. He was sure he looked as concerned as she did, and that really wasn't a good start.
"I'm glad you are not hurt," he said after a moment. Now for the next part. "You... this is... we're in the... universe..." Apparently he didn't know the French word for 'space station'. Christ, he hoped she knew the English for it.
He chuckled and then nodded. Was there anyone French on the station? He wasn't sure, he'd have to check for her. "Do you know what a space station is?" he asked. She certainly didn't look like she was from some sort of star wars world or a distant future, but one could never tell and it would save him babbling needlessly if she did.
