“No problem~! I’m the strongest chain of the Abyss, so of course I have to show others who the boss is!” Alice laughed, not even realizing that she had never mentioned anything at all about chains in front of Erio and didn’t notice that this might confuse her.
“An.. oven, huh.” She murmured, after her friend had returned with the ingredients and thoughtfully looked around. She never had spend many thoughts on where food came from or how you made it, because others had done this and not she herself, so this was kinda complicated for her. Alice knew what an oven was, but it wasn’t something she could smell, so finding it didn’t sound easy.
“Is.. an oven really necessary? Can’t we just eat it like this or order someone else to make it?”
How funny that she suggested this, when she was the one who wanted to be independent and not relying on others too much.
Erio smiled shyly, and began to explain. “I’d love to eat it just like it is, but dough has raw egg in it. If we eat it now, we’ll get sick! And that’d be terrible. Raw dough doesn’t really taste all that good either. And the pizza is better when the cheese and sauce are melted together anyway. Maybe if we look around and see if there are any restaurants around, we might be able to find an oven to cook it in!”
That was as good as Erio’s ideas were ever going to get, and she had no idea if there was even ovens around here. Well they did have dough… and pizza sauce… So they probably have an oven somewhere!
"Just what direction should we go in first..?" Erio asked skeptically, looking back and forth.
