Tatiana patted her friend’s shoulder sympathetically when he began reminiscing about foods he would rather be eating. She did not really over much like French cheeses, but she quite understood wanting something one did not have. The things she’d do for a proper glass of tea, or a platter of blini, or….

She listened, her head tilted to one side as she concentrated on understanding what Dorian was trying to say, as he explained his name for the puffskein. What he was miming initially drew only a blank look, but she thought about it hard, and when he said his mama had what he was talking about –

“Ohh!” said Tatiana as she put together the idea. “You put on rumyana so Fěnpū.” Realizing that the word for blusher was likely not one she had ever used before when speaking to Dorian – she was far too young to wear such a thing, and she was also the only girl in the Klub Yazyki, which limited her need for such vocabulary in any language – she used her fingers to mime smearing something onto her cheekbones. “Mama does not allow this for us,” she added.

“I look for kartoffel, but not have,” she reported. Potatoes for some reason sounded like a good idea, but apparently Professor did not agree. She put the food down and began separating the little pieces so it would be easier to see which one their pet went toward first, and so it would not have to worry about putting its little feet in something it didn’t want while eating something it did.

    “Ok ok,” he agreed, as Tatya threw together a fusion of food-related words, “Stop describe and just feed me. Et bien sûr, on peut manger quelque fromage avec les chose sucré… Brie avec des... more
