"It'd be nice if I could practice it with you. Doesn't have to be all the time, of course, I don't want to bother you."

Jisun raised an eyebrow, surprised by the offer. But then again, most of Anastasia's actions have surprised her at that point. Jisun clearly wasn't used to such an immediate friendship, and refused to let herself get comfortable; she felt quite confident that once the semester started, Anastasia would rapidly drift away from Jisun in favor of friends she was probably more compatible with.

Regardless, there was no harm in accepting the other woman's offer.


"I don't mind," Jisun answered, rolling up a piece of bulgogi into a lettuce wrap. "I've never needed to use German in a legitimate setting, so I could use some practice as well."

Jisun took a small bite out of her lettuce roll, humming in affirmation as she listened to Anastasia. Kind and attentive? she mused. Doesn't mean she likes him, but sounds like he's not bad. It wasn't expected for one to fall in love with the person they had an arranged marriage with -- although it did happen, once in a blue moon -- so the fact that Anastasia had an amenable relationship with Leo was already satisfactory enough.

"I'm happy for you," Jisun said simply. "It sounds like you're more than civil."

Jisun completely halted when Anastasia asked about . . . boyfriends. If she were eating at that very moment, she would've choked. Jisun didn't really talk about romance with anyone -- it wasn't a topic she was necessarily familiar nor comfortable with. Her sexuality was something she recognized, but she never emphasized it, and it wasn't a big part of her life or her identity. However, the question was simple, and Jisun didn't mind answering it.

"No, I haven't had a partner before," Jisun answered, purposefully using a gender-neutral term. "I'm not interested in that sort of thing."

That was true -- for the most part. Jisun has established to herself that she was bisexual -- in her occasional moments in night clubs, she had found herself equally attracted to men and women. But despite that, she never felt romantic attraction, nor had she consciously desired it -- well, except for one singular, isolated incident. When she was younger, Jisun had a horrible crush on Han-gyeol; fortunately, she was always a stoic child, and did a good job of hiding her emotions. Looking back on that moment, Jisun chided her younger self; Han-gyeol was multiple years older than her. But then again, he was kind, and they got along well. Regardless, Jisun knew they were strictly friends.

Maybe Jisun would be interested in romance, but there hadn't been a consistent enough pattern for her to determine whether she was or wasn't. All Jisun knew was that it was exceedingly rare for her, but she wasn't entirely opposed.


"Have you dated anyone before Leo?" Jisun turned the topic towards Anastasia, curious. She wouldn't be surprised if Anastasia had a dating history -- she seemed like the kind of girl people would like -- but then again, she didn't seem very . . . experienced.
