Yu has a light smile as he welcomed his friend into the house. It was true, he enjoyed treating people when he cooked. At least, when he got it right anyway, and it seemed he was! His smirk grew a tad more wide after hearing Chie’s comment on his cooking. Some would consider it to be the ultimate compliment.
Speaking of which…afterwards he stuffed the trash bin in its place underneath the sink. It’s contents being a few cuts of burned meat; the unlucky few that he attempted to experiment with. Truth be told, he only ever gave away the food he deemed to be “good,” to his friends. Anything else was chucked away in order to hide his shame. After all, he didn’t want a cooking reputation like Chie’s, Yukiko’s, or Rise’s.
His successful cuts were placed on a plate for seasoning before being served. "Porkchops." he answered as he placed the finished plate on the table. "Help yourself~" he announced proudly as he took his seat. He flashed his smile in Chie’s direction, anticipating her reaction to the food.
"They’re worthless to me! Worthless! If it’s not steak, I’m not interested.” Disgruntled, Chie stormed out.
>The dog’s reaction does make you somewhat nervous, but you believe in her ability to keep it under control.
"Yeah, I had to make dinner tonight."
>However, now that you think about it, perhaps you should be worrying more about Chie rather than the dog. >Still, against your better judgement, you decide to invite her in anyway. "There’s plenty, and my uncle isn’t home just yet, you wanna come in?"
"Oh man, that’d be great! I’m starving, ugh— I haven’t eaten for hours. Thanks!" Patting the dog, she gently tugged the dog along. "I’m just going to put him in the back— I doubt Dojima-san would appreciate this monster in his house." Poking around, she eventually found the gate to the backyard; where she released the dog from his leash so he could run around freely while she stuffed her face.
Thanks to an unlocked door, Chie slipped into the house from the back. Rubbing her hands together, she could hardly hide her excitement. “This is gonna be great! Your cooking is by far the best I’ve ever tasted— even better than my mom’s, and her’s is pretty good.”
Poking her head in the kitchen, she finally saw the source of the scent; a platter of meat frying on the pan. “Ooooh— it smells great! What are you making?”
>You open the door expecting your uncle, but, much to your surprise, you are greeted by Chie.
"Oh, hey Satonaka, what’s up?"
"Hey, Narukami!" Now that the door was open, the smell of the sizzling meat hit both her— and the large canine at the end of her leash— strongly. The scent caused the animal to get unruly, wiggling in his place while the teens spoke.
"Down, boy! Oh— nothing. I was just taking this big guy for a walk, and I thought I’d say hi. A—Are you cooking something?" She sniffed. "It smells like it."
