Noticing another problem.
Thu Mar 29, 2018 12:11

Dorian’s Russian was slow and a touch awkward and a balm to Tatiana’s ears. She managed a small smile. “Ty ochen’ khorosho govorish po-Russkii,” said Tatiana, tightly gripping the hand petting her other arm. “Spasibo. Ah, Dorya....”

She sighed and shook her head. “I not write that paper,” she said. “I know this. And he knows this. And I have honest.” She thought that wasn’t the right word - she meant honor - but she thought that expressed the sentiment. She was telling the truth. “I work good. Why - how Professor get such a paper?” This occurred to her belatedly. “It looks like I write - “ she moved her hand as though she was writing, not knowing the word for penmanship. “But I not write it - English no wrong. None wrong. Where that from? Who write it?” she asked, sounding now slightly sad but mostly puzzled. For someone to steal her test and write up a fake one - imitating her handwriting, even - that would take a lot of effort. Who could hate her that much? She sometimes felt a bit unnecessary whenever she was with more than one of her friends at a time, but they were all her friends, and surely she hadn’t wronged anyone else so without noticing it? She thought everyone liked her - she had always thought everyone she knew liked her.

          Cheet . Was that the word? Tatiana was uncertain on the word. She shrugged. “He thinks I use a bad quill,” said Tatiana. “That is to cheat? To say I used a quill that write for me?” Such quills... more

            “Yes, that is cheat,” he nodded sadly, when Tatya confirmed the meaning of the word, and reiterated the explanation about the quills, which made a lot more sense now. Except that it didn’t because... more

              Tatiana stared at Dorian in silence for a moment. It was a long moment, at least in terms of her silences - a moment long enough that it would have been reasonable for him to doubt how much she had... more

                She was just… staring. Perhaps she hadn’t understood? Or perhaps she just thought he was mad. Maybe it was one thing to bad mouth a teacher in private, but maybe she disapproved of his- That train of ... more
