"Uh... sorry." he mumbled, again.
Well, she had a point, but don't ramen shops, even one-time ones, have something that's the thing that's usually... well, the last time he'd been to one, his grandparents had ordered for him, so maybe they didn't have one, or each ramen shop had their specialty... and since this was just a humble booth, they wouldn't have a specialty... he felt a little embarrassed, but he guessed the girl just wanted to snap on someone.
He would have gone on to pay attention to Fuukami, but it seemed the impolite Englishman still had some more to say to him... he was apologizing, just a bit, though he didn't really fully believe that the boy did not know the nuances of Japanese etiquette. He was part foreign, and he did okay, except in rather complex situations... (some more fervently reverent people might still call him rude...) well, mostly because he erred... or hoped to err, at least, on the side of caution.
Still, an apology was an apology, though he wished the apology was less directed on to him, who had merely intervened, and more on the snappy girl... he nodded in recognition, and smiled in return (albeit sparingly... the boy was not accustomed to faking happiness...). It was mostly just to get it over with...
"Mizukami. My name." He couldn't say he felt it was nice to meet this Hibiki... but he didn't think he was bad at all. Just... doubtful. Inconsistent. He bowed to dismiss himself from his regard, and get back to... ordering. He turned back as Hibiki-san went away.
Miso's the sharp tasting one, right? I think that was what I tasted before... Tonkotsu... is that anything near tonkatsu? Maybe something with pork, since they both have 'ton'? Soy sauce? I'm not a vegetarian... is it okay to just think of it as... 'mix and match'?
"I guess... miso... and chicken..."
"I didn't know you knew how to cook, Fuukami-san... err... sorry."
His sorry count was escalating today.
