Kaeun had gone into the kitchen thinking that their cat had somehow made its way into the cupboards but found that it was actually Nana’s rummaging around that was making all that noise. (It really wasn’t that much noise - Kaeun was naturally a light sleeper and she was still getting used to dorming with all of them.) She hesitated at the door, starting then stopping, then starting to move through the doorway only to stop and call out instead.
“Um … unni?”
Nana turned from the cupboard, her arms full of ingredients. ”Kaeun,” she said. It was a simple statement of fact but it made Kaeun even more unsure as to what to do. She watched awkwardly as Nana set down the ingredients on the counter then turn to the refrigerator. When Nana pulled out eggs and butter, Kaeun couldn’t help but ask, “What are you making?”
