Kelisha: Natasia cast a sidelong glance at Kellie as they sat on a bench outside a Brooklyn restaurant, waiting for their table to be called. “Do you like hot dogs,” she asked without asking, merely a space filler in the continuum of the unspoken wall that had built up between them.
“Yes,” Kellie replied, continuing to look straight ahead at the falling leaves in front of her. It’s almost May, she thought to herself. Why are leaves still falling?
A good 15 minutes passed, the silence between their words feeling more like the comfortable loneliness of reading a book and drinking tea when you’re home alone than an act of deliberate hostility. “John, table for 3!” the hostess calls out, peeking her head out the door as a gaggle of overaged hipsters run over in a gluttonous ferver. “Me too,” Natasia finally stated, her eyes trained on the same leaves Kellie was looking at. They fell softly on the pavement, their conversation settling down on top of them.
Kellie peers at her friend from a distance, a single chicken nugger left on her own plate. Her stomach is no longer hungry, but her friend’s whimpers for help do nothing to stir up a spirit of generosity. Kellie finished her chicken nugger mindlessly, then walks over to Natasia. “You can have my last sweer potato,” she says without tone, dropping the limp vegetable at her friend’s feet. Natasia glances up in silence, not sure whether to be grateful or confused. Kellie merely walks away.

Two Associate Scholars from America Travel to North Korea to Dissuade Kim Jong Un from Further Testing
Natasia Sidarta, 22, and Kelisha Menon, 22, are making preparations for their upcoming trip to the hermit nation of North Korea to peacefully convince Kim Jong Un to stop his nuclear testing. Though the pair are self-taught North Korea experts, neither has previously traveled to the country. “I’m a little nervous, but this has been my life’s passion,” says Sidarta. “I want to bring nothing to the table but a message of peace, and I want to show evidence of not just political motives but the common public’s awareness as well.”
