Adventures of Kakari - RPG - #5
/ooc I've just been itchy to post these next few entries! I'm in the process of weaving Kakari's life and training in Shar Vahl into her appearance at the mighty battle in Freeport. On with the story....
"That's right, just a little closer..." Kakari murmured.
Kakari stiffened, then pounced on her prey, plunging her dagger into its small body. It was dead even before its squeal had silenced. The rockhopper's dead claws clutched Kakari's prize -- the last rockhopper egg. Finally!
Kakari bounded across the pit and used all four limbs to scale the crater wall. She wasted no time on her way to the ovens.
At first glance, there was no one in sight. Kakari began to unpack the precious ingredients from her backpack.
"I see you've brought everything," said a voice behind her. Kenkaishin. Right on time.
He brushed past her and expertly flipped open the oven door. He looked at her from over his shoulder.
"Do you have much experience baking?" he asked.
Kakari shook head.
"Allow me to demonstrate, then," he said. "Grilled cheese sandwiches, my specialty."
Kakari watched his practiced paws fold the ingredients together in his frying pan. Already, she noticed a couple things that she'd been doing wrong in her own baking. For one, she'd been setting the oven much hotter than Kenkaishin had it now. No wonder she burned everything.
The delicious cackle of the grill caused a growl to emanate from Kakari's stomach. Embarassed, Kakari put a paw over her middle in a futile attempt to silence it.
Kenkaishin's ears flicked. "Here," he handed her the sandwich.
"Thank y--" Kakari hadn't finished speaking before she hungrily swollowed the first bite.
Satisfied, Kakari was better able to concentrate on Kenkaishin's advice about the skill of baking. Before the end of the afternoon, with Kenkaishin's help, she'd cooked all the rockhopper eggs into healthy snacks.
She couldn't wait to deliver them to Sergeant Tylah in Hollowshade moor. Her mentor would be proud when she brought back news of her success!
Kakari turned to thank Kenkaishin for all of his help, but he was already gone.
(Kakari, eighth season.)
/ooc In her "real" life, Kakari hasn't actually gathered all the eggs yet... (Next time I see you in the pit, Kenkaishin, we'll have to go hunting!) But, I didn't want this minor detail to hold up the rest of Kakari's adventures. So, in the next episode, she continues with the four boiled rockhopper eggs to continue her mission in Hollowshade moor!
