The Sun is Also a Star: Chapter 55 Summary & Analysis

Daniel feels as though it's a miracle that Natasha doesn't hate him. He invites her to get lunch at his favorite Korean restaurant. On the subway, he pulls out his phone to find more questions. Natasha scoots closer. Her hair tickles Daniel's nose, and he takes a sniff of it that's not at all discreet. Natasha, aghast, asks if he just smelled her hair. Ashamed, Daniel admits that he did. She asks him how it smelled, and he rambles for a moment about how good it smelled. He looks down and hopes he didn't scare her away.
As awkward as this moment is, the fact that Natasha seems more curious about Daniel's interpretation than offended suggests that the two are definitely becoming closer, especially given how physically close Natasha gets to Daniel.
