It tastes pretty good and that just makes her feel worse, but she's not radiating anger anymore; she probably doesn't look more than mildly upset. Hopefully no one tries to talk to her.

Permalink

A couple people who haven't seen her before say hi!

Permalink

She'll say hi back and try to answer what questions she understands with as uninteresting answers as she can.

Permalink

They give up pretty fast when they realize her command of the language is as limited as it is.

Permalink

She doesn't want to talk to them now but she'll probably ever want to talk to anyone. Learning the local language is the only thing that matters right now.

The next time Suirban comes over he says, "I got them to change the checkbox, if they ever find who made you they'll arrest 'em over that even if they don't have anything else on their record."

Permalink

"Thank you."

She doesn't ask any questions that aren't directly related to the language. Those can wait.

Permalink

"Once you're conversational enough that when you run into a new word you can get a circumlocuted definition from people who aren't me they're gonna want you to turn up at the job office and at a support group."

Permalink

"They don't make you keep going to the support group after you get steady work, but it's encouraged anyway."

Permalink

"I'll see how I feel about it, then."

Permalink

"Once you get a job you have ten sleeps of grace period here, which is also how much you get if your job coach doesn't think you're really trying to get work."

Permalink

"Of course. How do I find somewhere else to stay?"

Permalink

"Ten sleeps is long enough for your job to pay you and while you're waiting on that you scope out places near it and find something you can afford that's empty and talk to whoever owns it."

Permalink

That sounds doable enough. "What else should I know before I'm conversational enough for people to expect me to know things?"

Permalink

"Have you run into anything you have questions about? I can't think of anything else specific."
