Ki Eun turns down the stereo. She walks to the fridge, gets a bottle of so ju from the freezer, and brings it into the dining room. Fadhel is sitting with his back to the kitchen. His eye is on the front door. Ki Eun puts the bottle next to his neck. Fadhel flinches slightly. Then she puts it against his neck.
"Mmmm," he says. "Cold."
"Yes," she says.
Fadhel takes the bottle from Ki Eun's hands and puts it on the dining room table. Then he puts his hand on Ki Eun's thigh. He traces up her skirt. She giggles.
