Nikolai ate slowly, cutting with his fork and starting from the outside. It was good pie. Then he blurted out, akwardly and slowly: "I had another friend named Marina. It was her and Andrei I thought should go out. When I was five and she was six I made her kiss me." Where the hell did that come from?! He kept going, speeding up, "Bogdan was very angry after and made her kiss him, too. Then he tried to get Raisa to kiss him and she wouldn't." He then shut and continued to eat his pie. He was not someone who shared personal information.
