The Friday Society - Adrienne Kress

Why are they having a drunken party?! They've found two dead people in the last 24 hours!

 

And why couldn't the author have Michiko know a bit more English? She supposedly became skilled with a sword after only a year or two's worth of training. Surely she could have more English under her belt than "hello," "forgiveness," and "death" after a year or so in England? I have to grit my teeth each time Cora and Nellie decide they can't really include Michiko in their drunken games because she doesn't know English.
