I'm just trying to prevent Raph from sounding like he doesn't know what he's talking about.

She continues working, not even giving you a sideways glance.

"Thanks."

>Alright. Time to be useful and a good roommate! Locate Claire's laundry area, get a broom, duster and other cleaning equipment. Give the floors a good scrub, make any unmade beds, do the dishes.

>Check the pantry. Are we well stocked in ingredients? Otherwise, leave and buy a bag of rice, some de-boned chicken breast, curry powder and assorted vegetables. We're making kare raisu tonight! Also find an apron.

>Locate pans, spoons and other utensils. Wash the rice, then boil it as we're cutting the vegetables. Give the chicken a good coating of eggs and corn flour, then deep fry. In a large pot, make a reasonably thick curry and vegetable stew.

>Set the kitchen table, wait for the girls to be done with work.

Maybe he can hit the books and read up on Meglunda history, or bird attack records, or something potentially useful like that.

Opening the door to Claire's laundry room, you quickly locate the cleaning supplies and get to cleaning the floors - first sweeping, then scrubbing until it's squeaky clean. Everyone's bed is made, and a quick check shows that there aren't any dishes to

After that, you check her cupboards for ingredients - salt, pepper, and some random canned meats and fruits. Guess it's time to go shopping.

An hour later and you're back in the condo with your groceries! Heading into the kitchen, you pull out the whole-but-headless chicken. Euck.

Takes a bit to clean it, gut it, and cut it into, uh, separate pieces, but you manage. Claire doesn't seem to use her kitchen knives often because they seem perfectly sharp.

Throwing on some various herbs and basic spices, the chicken goes on a baking tray and then into the oven. After that, you begin cooking the rice and chopping the veges (with a different knife) and throw the veges into a pot.

It's pretty basic, simple cooking that Iiri taught you, but it's not half bad, especially when you did it by yourself.

Once the food is done cooking, you set the table, and Claire steps into the condo as if on cue.

Claire: "Did someone cook?"

Claire: "I - wow, I wasn't expecting a home cooked meal!"

Claire quickly heads into her bedroom to drop her stuff off before going to the dining room and picking a seat to sit. Bezel gets cups of water for everyone and then sits across from Claire.

Which is at the head of the table, because there's no good reason to clump up on one side for a casual meal. We can invade their personal space later, but while eating everyone else gets breathing room.

You sit at the head of the table, serving the food to everyone before getting some for yourself.

Claire claps her hands together.

Claire: "Eat well!"

She and Bezel start digging in, and you follow.

Hmm. The rice is a liiittle too wet, but the chicken and veges are satisfactory.

Claire: "This is good! Where did you learn to cook?"
