No. Make it for someone else. I already know what it’s like.
I’ll just leave some left over and if it happens to make it’s way to you then… Not my fault.
Well, maybe you need a judge? I like to think I know good food when I taste it…
How do you feel about pancakes? Chocolate chip ones? I know it’s not exactly the right time of day but I’m eager to try.
Not that hard but it can get a little messy. When I was like 13 or something I started sneaking in the kitchens because I’d always get hungry at like 3 am and I’d hang out with the cooks while they made whatever I wanted and eventually I started learning. I’m not a pro but like I said I know enough to survive on my own. We were closer when I was younger. I like Hunting. we never kill for the sake of killing. Whatever we killed was because we were going to eat it, those were my father’s rules when hunting.
I think I’d want to learn to make chocolate chip pancakes… Or blueberry. The whole flipping them while they’re on the pan part is what’s intimidating to me. That and keeping them maintained in a nice shape. Well, that’s good. I mean, the whole idea of putting what you kill to use, food being a good use. I’m not sure I could manage to hunt even if I tried. What did you do while you camped?
You came here to improve yourself? Please, do explain.
It’s…a sort of chocolate cream dish. From Monaco.
You know… Just prepare myself and strengthen myself for whatever the future has to bring.
Could I make it for you?
Isn’t every princess taught that, Leah? That they’re not a princess, if they aren’t perfect? Or at least, pretend to be?
Do you know what a Chocolate Danette is?
Well it’s true. Royalty is an image of perfection that we’re expected to live up to. Why else would I come back but to learn how to improve myself?
No, I don’t… Explain it to me.
Right. So you’ve decided to pretend?
Cooking, sometimes. Food, always.
I was taught that it’s the best thing to do.
Well what do you like? Maybe it could be the next thing I learn to make.
I think I liked your dark side better than…this.
That “dark side” never existed, as far as I’m concerned.
You don’t enjoy cooking? Or food?
Pancakes and all kind of breakfast. Pasta and all that easy stuff. Camping food is basically just hunting, cleaning, prepping and cooking, my dad and I used to go hunting on the weekends and would spent at least one night out there… We were never really alone I mean he had the guards near enough but you know what I mean.
How difficult are pancakes? Maybe I’ll try that next. I started with pasta since it just required boiling the water, then eventually I learned to make the sauce.
I understand. That actually sounds nice. Maybe not the hunting part for me but camping is something I’d try in the near future. Are you close with your father? Wait- You don’t have to answer that if it’s personal.
I know how to cook… Well basic stuff mostly and camping food but I could survive if the cooks were to leave.
What’s considered to be basic or camping food?
Ah, yeah I get that. Annoying is what it is, but hey if you find the time then definitely do it.
I hope to, definitely. Do you cook as well?
