Margo returned to the town after he informed me that the lizard monster had been defeated. I was feeling so relieved that I didn’t feel like doing anything today.
Well, it’s nice to have a day like this once in a while. Let’s take it easy for today.
I laid down a blue sheet and spent a suitable time laying down there while taking care of Ash.
A wild rabbit got caught in the ankle snare trap. I decided to have a whole roasted rabbit for dinner tonight and had some drinks too. The sky was cloudy but I was feeling good today. The cloud was starting to get thinner. Maybe we will get a hazy moon tonight?
I spent the time lazing around and playing catch the bone with Ash.
I decided to fetch some water in the river so I could finally have a hot bath for the first time in a while. When I entered the hot bath, I could clearly feel how stiff I had been these past few days. I could feel the tension in my body loosened but not completely gone yet.
I soaked the towel with the hot water, squeezed the excess water and put the warm towel on my eyes. It felt so amazingly good.
After I got out of the bath, I started cooking the whole roasted rabbit. I rubbed the dissected meat with salt and garlic. Then I thrusted a wooden skewer into the rabbit and roasted it over open-fire.
The appetizing smell of food floated all around the vicinity.
Ash was sitting up, acting like a good boy but the drool on the side of his mouth was clear for anyone to see. It was obvious what was on his mind.
I got up to get a keg of ale and sipped the ale while watching the whole rabbit as it cooked.
When the meat turned light brown and looked like it was already cooked, I took a bite of it. The taste of the juicy meat immediately spread through my mouth.
Feeling disgruntled, Ash kept on tapping me with his forefoot.
I get it, I get it.
I cut a small part of the meat and put it on a plate reserved only for Ash. Just having roasted rabbit felt a little sad for me so I also made marinated smoked herb chicken eggs and smoked cheese while sipping on alcohol occasionally.
As I thought, we’re having a hazy moon tonight.
I looked up at the sky to see the magical looking blue moon. I continued to eat my dinner without thinking about anything as I watched the night sky.
