"Yes," Zara confirmed, when Johana-Leonie asked if she understood. "That's cool," she smiled, slipping into the more colloquial way of talking because it was just such a habitual response. Zara found lots to like about the world, so lots of things were cool. "Healing. Making Potions - those are good.

"In my family... My older sister," she raised a hand a little higher than her head, "Me," she indicated herself, "and my little brother," she dropped her hand slightly lower than herself. "And mom and dad," she added.

"My family... Wow, this is gonna be hard to mime," she added with a laugh, more to herself. She made a 'considering' face as she tried to work out how to explain 'anthropologist' and 'Muggle Cultural Centre.' "They study," she mimed a book, "Non-magical people," she made the wand gesture again with her knife but this time waved her other hand in the way that generally indicated no/stop/do not want. "They have... a place. For teaching others. Uh... Does that make sense?" she asked, feeling like maybe she was overshooting here.

    Johana Leonie wasn't sure if everyone in the world was this patient, but she was amazed at her luck so far. Between Hilda and now Zara, Johana Leonie couldn't imagine having gotten any more fortunate ... more

      • Nein, Nett!Johana Leonie Zauberhexen, Mon Jan 14 21:31
        "Ja, coole," Johana Leonie laughed, using the borrowed form. "Making potions! Das ist das word! Making." She was satisfied that her description of her brother was appropriate when Zara offered that... more
        • .... neat? Zara, Wed Jan 16 07:48
          Zara grinned upon hearing Johana-Leonie utter the word "cool," or something very like it. If she had mastered that word already, they would be just fine. "At home," Zara replied, when Johana-Leonie... more

            Johana Leonie was fairly certain Zara was making some pretty snipped sentences and she wasn't sure if she was more grateful or embarrassed. She was proud of her German heritage and language, but it... more
            • Nice?Zara, Fri Jan 18 06:52
              “Nice,” Zara smiled, as Johana-Leonie explained that they made both Muggle and magical remedies. The word ‘medicine’ was similar enough that she assumed Johana-Leonie was saying it in English, just... more

                Johana Leonie indulged in a small slump. She reached for a potato and dug into the little guy as Zara spoke and she considered her words carefully. There were bits and pieces she thought she... more
                • Aw. Thanks. You too :-)Zara, Sun Jan 20 00:34
                  She seemed to have got some of the message across. It was strange just hearing single words echoed back to her of her own comments, but it seemed to be Johana-Leonie’s way of confirmed what she’d... more
