Just to offer another option, if you are bothered by {HIghoS}, just say {naDev yIghoS}. There’s not much difference between using “me” as a destination vs. using “my location” as a destination, and “here” always means either “my destination” or the extremely-close-to-my-location-that-I-am-visually-indicating, since if it’s not near me, I’d say, “there” instead of “here”; {pa’} instead of {naDev}.

I’m not bothered by {HIghoS}, but {naDev yIghoS} works even less controversially. Not much controversy, either way. Just know that you have options.

We don't have this split in Klingon, and we have little data about whether it would be strange to Klingons.       We know that HIghoS has been used a couple of times, but HIjaH and HIchol have not. (I don't think HIchol would be used for this anyway, since the point isn't to make your distance to me less but to come to the same room as me.)
