Masha looked while boy carefully pushed the Indian dish to the edge of the plate. At least she did help a little bit. It appeared that he didnít like hot food any more than she did.

"Danke,"

That language again. She did recognise the word, however, even if she didnít know the meaning. Definitely European. She heard it loads of times on the streets among groups of tourists.

"Thank you, I mean. I am called Heinrich,"

Masha smiled shyly at the boy. She remembered one time they had to wait for 4h in Munich airport for their flight. She heard that word a lot. Also, boyís name sounded like heís from that part of the world. Panic! She didnít know anything about his country or their customs.

ďЭто нормальноĒ she nodded and then froze. That is what she would reply to her parents, after all ĎItís okí was customary reply to Ďthank youí in her home. But she wasnít at home.

"Is that safe rice? It tastes not spicy hot?"

She glanced at the direction he pointed and shook her head.

ďI think this is plain rice.Ē If he keeps asking about each dish, we will have a problem

She smiled at the boy encouragingly, blushing, wanting him to take the rice and stop asking about food before she runs out of the answers.

OOC: Это нормально - It is normal, which can be used as it's ok in informal surroundings

        His very first thought when the other first year spoke and said something completely incomprehensible was that it couldn't possibly be even English. Much of English was incomprehensible to him, but... more

          The boy thanked Masha and then he said: "I am from Germany," Germany! A country in Europe. I donít know anything about Germany! Masha was starting to panic. The only bit of good news was that the boy ... more
