Lowain, Elsam, and Tomoi all watched as Yaia cracked eggs over rice, shell and all. "Sorry to put everyone through this trouble," chuckled Lowain sheepishly. "We thought we could handle that wind rabbit, but it got the better of us."
"No problem, Aquadudez," said Xetaja, giving a thumbs-up. "Yaia's got you covered."
"You go, Yaia-chan," said all three of the cooks. "W00t w00t!"
"Okay! Just wait a little longer," said Yaia happily as she began frying the rice. She blinked and glanced around. "Eh? My teddy bear's gone."
"Bobo, did you eat it? I didn't know you were a cannibal!" teased Abby.
Bobo, the giant bear next to Abby, promptly buried its face in its paws. "Bo, bo!" (I didn't eat it! And eating a stuffed animal wouldn't make me a cannibal!)
"I bet Typh stole it," whispered Sparkleaf.
"I did not!" yelled Typh indignantly, drawing startled glances from around the room.
"Don't worry, I'll watch the stove," volunteered Katalina.
Yaia froze. "But-"
"It'll be fine!" Katalina assured her. "You go find your teddy bear."
Rai and Xetaja exchanged ominous glances as Yaia skipped out of the room. "Hm, the heat's not up very high," said Katalina, inspecting the stove. "Let's see... there we go..."
"Eh, Katalina," began Lowain, but Tomoi stopped him.
"Nah, man, don't say nothing. Katalina looks happy right now. You wanna get into her good books, yo."
"Uh, Katalina, I think that's cooked enough," said Rackam tenatively. Yaia's fried rice, which had been approaching a nice golden color, was now on fire. "Grandcypher's smoke alarms need to be replaced, see."
Bobo waved its paws in dismay as Katalina began scooping the charred fried rice into bowls, setting them in front of the crew. "Bo, bo!" (That doesn't look remotely edible!)
"Oh, Bobo! You must really want some," laughed Abby just a little too loudly. She began pushing the charred fried rice toward the bear's face. "Come on, eat up!"
Maestra, Typh, Sparkleaf, Xetaja, and Rai all stared at their overfried rice. "Pass," they said in unison.
At that moment, Lyria entered the room. "Oh! Breakfast is ready!" she gasped excitedly, taking a seat. The crew stared in horror as Lyria began rapidly shoveling fried rice into her mouth. "Yummy~"
