“Side quest updated: To be able to eat your fill during the apocalypse is such a blessing!
It’s even better to eat something you like. Please find player Elaro’s favorite food.”
“We need to find Elaro’s favorite food.”
As Grisia said this, he and Charles immediately looked at Elaro.
Confused, Elaro said, “I’m really not picky.”
Grisia shook his head and said, “No, Will said that there is no quest that is absolutely impossible to complete. There must be something you like to eat the most.”
Elaro frowned as he thought it over. Perhaps I have preferences, but I really can’t say if there’s something I like to eat the most.
Charles smiled and suggested, “My young master is also not a picky eater, but he prefers calorie-rich food. His favorite food is most likely the barbequed meat he and his friend Ezart fight over when they eat at that particular barbeque place.”
Hearing that last sentence, Elaro really was reminded of a memory concerning food.
“Actually, I’ve had a similar experience. It was on Shuis’s birthday, which we always celebrate together with Valica’s. As an orphan, Valica doesn’t know his birthday. I asked Absenplum to help prepare a big meal, but he had to go home to attend to some business. So, he just made some soup and told me to add the meat and vegetables and boil them when I wanted to eat.”
Thinking back to that time, he said with a smile, “These two kids were making a ruckus while eating. They both wanted to put meat into my bowl, but neither wanted the other to put in more. Still, when there was only one piece left, these two actually calculated how many times the other had given me a piece. They finally figured out that Shuis had given me one piece more than Valica, so he let Valica put in the last piece.”
Hehe, why does it feel like my son is boasting about the grandkids?
Grisia was unexpectedly moved for a moment, but ultimately felt no admiration. Son—no, my student, do you still remember you’re only twenty something years old?
How can you feel like a dad already?
“Meat and vegetable soup, you mean hotpot?”
Charles expected that that would be very difficult. He found a gas stove and looked for as many alternatives for fresh food as he could, such as dried vegetables, canned meat, vacuum stored diced chicken, and various kinds of dried seafood. In the end, when the food came to a boil, it actually smelled good.
As they made hotpot, the people who passed by were all astonished. You’re leisurely making hotpot even during the apocalypse?
On the other hand, they admired the great strength of these three people, who had been able to easily dispatch the monsters. It would be fine for them to make hotpot here, and the smell coming from the pot was truly appetizing…
The trio wasn’t about to invite any of the other people to join them. Even if they wanted to share the food, they had to complete the quest first.
“This will have to do.”
Charles slightly regretted the fact that there wasn’t any fresh meat that hadn’t gone bad. They only had the vacuum wrapped diced chicken to make up for it, but he didn’t know if that would be enough.
The system hadn’t made an announcement yet, though, so the three of them had no choice but to keep the hotpot going.
Grisia calmly said, “It doesn’t matter if this doesn’t work. It’s very easy to trigger these five or ten points side quests, so we won’t miss these ten points.”
“Is that so? How many points do you have now?” Charles asked curiously.
Elaro counted and replied, “Thirty-five points.”
It sounds like they really would miss these ten points after all…
Grisia noticed Charles wasn’t eating and couldn’t keep himself from asking, “Are you really entirely unable to eat food?”
Charles said with a smile, “I can eat, but the taste is extremely weak, and if I eat too much, I will throw up.”
“That’s a pity.”
Elaro thought it was a shame he couldn’t offer any blood and let Charles eat together with them.
“But eating a little bit is not a problem.”
Charles deliberately picked up one piece of chicken, raised it like he was making a toast and then ate it in one bite.
“Side quest completed: To be able to eat your fill during the apocalypse is such a blessing!
It’s even better to eat something you like. You have found player Elaro’s favorite food, meat shared while sitting around the fire. The reward is ten points.”
We received points?
The two opened their eyes wide, but before they could share their joy with Charles, they heard an even better system announcement.
“Congratulations, players, the number of shares has surpassed one hundred for the second time, you can activate the spinner wheel again.”
