Book 8: The Sharp End of the Stick — Part III: Out of the Frying Pan...


Narrator: The nanomachines in Kevyn's body know that he will heal faster if he sets the broken bones himself.
Kevyn: "Step one: Pull hand while lowering elbow"
Narrator: They have suborned subdermal capillaries in order to print instructions right on his arm.
Kevyn: "Step two: Slide bone splinter 'A' back inside slot 'B'"
Kevyn: Uhh.
Kevyn: GYAAA! Owowow!
Kevyn: "Step three: Press here for more painkillers."
Narrator: Their bedside manner is actually pretty good.
