Morning came. I went outside and it was getting a little foggy. I yawned and then I splashed cold water on my face. I was feeding the animals when I heard a sound that resembled the sound of a bull.
Or to be precise, it was a bull. It was the cry of a battle bull when it got caught in the trap. I took my bow and headed to the source of the sound and saw the leg of the battle bull got caught in an ankle snare trap. For some reason, there was a bite mark on the butt part of the bull. I wondered if something had attacked it so the bull tried to escape and ended up here.
While wondering about this strange incident, I drained the blood from the paralyzed bull and dismantled it.
I had fresh liver sashimi with salt for lunch. Of course, I ate it bit by bit to savor it.
This is too amazing. Fresh liver is seriously too amazing.
Next, I rubbed the innards with salt and washed it. Then I tried smoking some of the meat parts. I also tried tasting the smoked meat as I cooked it.
I ended up eating some tiny pieces as I cooked. I also munched on some mylene detoxifying herb and then, I could feel my body become refreshed instantly.
Margo and Juno came in a wagon. Their sharp eyes easily detected the food I was making and so, they also started nibbling on the food.
Just why are the two of you here?
Since Margo and Juno had come all the way here, I heated the leftover water from yesterday’s bath at an earlier time than usual.
I made beef innards hotpot, beef liver sashimi, beef steak and also smoked beef. A full course beef meal.
Ash’s eyes were glued to the food. I used a towel to wipe his fur that was getting sticky from his drool.
The morning fog had cleared, revealing a clear sky full of stars. We had a party in the evening. Though it seemed the party had already started since those two arrived at my home. I even had to make ‘closure soup’ for them in the middle of it.
In the first place, judging from the equipment they wore, weren’t they here to hunt some monsters? Well to be fair, if I had fresh beef liver and innards hotpot in front of me, I wouldn’t be in the mood to hunt either.
Juno and Margo moaned out loud everytime they had a bite of the liver sashimi and innards hotpot. I knew their feelings very well. I also unconsciously drank more alcohol than I should.
We drank until late at night. The thought of checking the time didn’t even cross my mind so I didn’t know how long we drank for.
I was also getting tired from singing along with the two of them even though they were singing songs in the Lancaster language that I didn’t know about. I had a faint memory of when we somehow managed to drink soup made from mylene detoxifying herb though.
Before I knew it, the three of us were already sleeping in the blacksmith workshop. Drinking until I lost my memory was something I had never done even during the time when I was still in Japan.
A relationship where it’s fine to show the disgraceful side of us. I just now realized that kind of relationship is called being a ‘best friend’.
