[100 Words is a story in 100 words or less, based off the word in the title.]

“It’s going to hurt,” Dr Relch said, giving Nela a not-very-sympathetic-look, “you got bitten by a Begral after all.”

Stupid Begral and their stupid poisoned flying stupid tails.

“You’re lucky not to be dead,” Dr Relch said, handing Nela a cup of sickly green liquid, “drink this.”

“It won’t help,” Nela said, taking the concoction from Dr Relch and swallowing it one. It was a foul, disgusting substance.

“Nothing will,” Dr Relch said, “not until we get to the next star system.”
