The situation that Julius now found himself in wasn't an uncommon one. It wasn't the first time that he'd offended someone enough to cause them to snap back at him. Though, in Julius's mind, he felt that he hadn't done anything wrong. His mother had always taught him that 'honesty is always the best policy'. He'd only answered her question honestly.

"Given that you can barely speak English, why should I display manners towards you?"

With that, Julius turned on his heel and stalked off. Maybe he'd finally get some peace and quiet and would no longer waste time with these ridiculous lesser beings.

        She was not, Katya decided in the moments after Julius stormed off, going to give up wearing hats just yet, even if she concluded it was definitely not the custom of proper American young ladies.... more
