A short while later more elven workers appeared bearing a large amount of ingredients and an invoice.
Kishana sorted out the ingredients and stored them away in the refrigerator while Schenna started planning a budget as she glared at the invoice.

“Do you want help? If we have any free time, let’s go hunt monsters for Dark Cores,” Luthors asked as she sat on a chair.

“In that case, could you make Sareenea some breakfast?”
“Sure, no problem.”
“Then let’s go make it together.”

Kishana beckoned Luthors to join her in the kitchen so she could teach her how to cook.
The menu for this morning was salted rice balls.
To start with, she gently washed the rice and left it to soak in plenty of water.
After about 20-30 minutes she drained it through a colander and transferred it to a pot.
Then after adding as much water as before back in, she used her magic to light a fire.

Once the water had come to a boil, she turned the fire down and put a lid on the pot. 10 to 15 minutes later she put out the fire and used a towel to trap the steam in the pot for another 10 to 15 minutes.
Up till now, she’s been cooking rice in a clay pot, perhaps it would be a good idea to ask Sareena if she could make something like a rice cooker.

“These are the basic steps to cook rice. You can use it to make all sorts of dishes.”
“Like that porridge you made before?”
“That’s right. This time we’re just making salted rice balls, if you want I can teach you how to make the porridge some other time.”
“Please do.”

Luthors took note of Kishana’s cooking process so she could make use of it.
For the salted rice balls, she needed to cool her hands with ice water to be able to hold the freshly cooked rice.
If you wipe off the water, the rice won’t stick to your hands to a certain extent.
Next you spread some salt evenly across your hands and flavor the rice balls to your taste as you pinch the corners into a mountain shape.
With Kishana’s practiced hands, her rice balls came out perfectly, meanwhile, Luthors made a few clumsy tries before she got the hang of it.

“That’s pretty good for your first time. Seems like you have good cooking sense, I’m sure you’ll make a great wife someday.”
“Me? A wife!? I’ve never thought about it.”
“Hey Luthors, what type of person do you like?”
“I swore to offer myself to Schenna. I like people who can be straightforward like her.”

With that sudden confession, Luthors turned to look at Schenna passionately.1 Upon hearing that, Schenna shyly looked away with flushed cheeks.
Kishana wrapped up the completed rice balls and blankly stared at the two thinking it’d be a complicated love.
