Sengoku Horizon

Look towards the Horizon

The Warring States Period: Fierce warlords fought for control of Japan, and many would perish. When a warrior falls, where does the passion they once held go? Possibly into something dear such as a favorite weapon or heirloom. These heirlooms have been labeled as “relics”, and those that carry them are labeled as “Scions." Recently more and more of these special relics have been activating, signaling the start of a great change as ancient power meets the modern world!

Now For The Local News, 11/01/2017 The dust has cleared after a fierce clash against the rebel Ikko Ikki monks. Now, as a tense period of calm spread over the island nation of Japan the students of Edo Bugei must figure out how to proceed in life after experience such intense conflicts and such deep loss.

[Early Spring, February: Light Showers]

The usual spring rain came with the usual turn of the season. It'll be another two months before the cherry blossoms in Edo and all over Japan will start its pink wave from the southern all the way to the top. But while it may be raining outside, Edo Bugei continued as its usually did in strides despite the looming anticipation of when the coming strike will happen from the Ikko monks. Training and vigilance became a higher priority for many students while others sought peace and wondered how things will fair made minor occasions like Valentines Day and White Day to take on a slightly different light for some. For those such reasons, are kept in private of those who wish it.

On the second floor of the club building rested the Home Ec room. Inside were students, both club members and not, getting aprons on and setting out the supplies. Basic recipes from soft cookies to brownies were bookmarked and copied for any students who wish to take these recipes. Students tasked with teaching others who to cook and give pointers were given a red apron while newer chefs were in white or pink. For now was it too early to start any cooking competitions and just help with the basics; the main purpose of this event.

Not many people knew how to cook and making sweets can be both difficult and easy. It's very easy to burn them and turn them into heart shaped rocks than delicious cakes. Hopefully this would encourage people to try cooking on their own but the key theme was around sweets so there's no avoiding this for those who aren't partial to sugar. If all goes well, there might be a cook off for talented members. On the back of class, since the front board was taken up with doodles of announcing the cooking class, in large pink hearts and red text read the event's main key ingredient.

Always put LOVE in your cooking!

When Mirai had heard about the Home Ec. club’s plan to run an activity for Valentine’s Day baking, she had been all over the idea. Learning to cook was something she’d promised herself she’d do, and the main reason she joined the Home Ec. club in the first place, and getting to try out some of the skills she was learning there alongside other students that were not part of the club sounded like it would be a fun opportunity to see if she could further those skills more. She didn’t particularly care that it was for Valentine’s Day; it’s wasn’t like she had anyone special in mind to even give the results of the baking to, and most likely she’d just end up giving it to random people she knew. She had come along for the experience of the cooking. As she meandered along the hall the Home Ec. clubroom, she wondered if anyone she knew from outside the club would have come along.

Mirai had only signed up to be participating in the cooking, and not as one of the students rostered on to supervise and help the other students. As much as she wanted to help others out, she wasn’t in a position where she was experienced enough at cooking to be any good if someone had a problem. Maybe next time she could help out like that.

Plenty of other students were already in the room setting up by the time she arrived. Mirai went and found herself a white apron and tied it around her waist. Uncertainly, she glanced around; did they need any more help setting out the ingredients or anything? Were they allowed to get started or were they going to wait until everyone had arrived?

“Sorry, excuse me, is there anything you need help with?” Mirai asked a passing red-aproned student, whom she’d seen around the Home Ec. club but never talked to at length; the other student merely shrugged and replied that she was fairly certain they had everything under control already.

“Oh. Right.” Mirai clasped her hands in front of her and twiddled her thumbs. No-one seemed to be getting started so she assumed that they must still be waiting before they begin; she would start trying out one of the recipes once everyone else had started, too. In the meantime she glanced around, seeing if there was anyone she could recognise here who she knew better than just as a passing acquaintance.

"Okay okay, everyone to stations!" A senior commended in a red apron. They assumed the role of the head chef and supervisor. Basically they're the one the red aprons go to when sudden supply shortages happen or if one the ovens stopped working rather than actual pro tips on cooking. The senior strolled up to the board to write down their name in large kanji letters for introduction; Miyabi Takane!

"Thank you all for coming and while the room may not look it now but many more cooks will come in and out of the room. I'd like everyone to select the recipe they are interested in trying and divide up the room. Groups working on cookies to the left, cakes in the middle, frozen goods to the back, and the right side for candies. Our goal here today is help everyone learn how to bake their delicious sweets and decorate as needed. When you're done with the projects, the portion of the home-ec room where we do our tailoring has been set up as the gift wrapping table. When your cakes are cooking or chilling, please take the time to make up any cards or choose what wrappings you'd like but always remember where your station is. We wouldn't want those precious feelings to go up in smoke." The lame joke was met with a few groans of embarrassment but the senior just grinned at their despair. The set up wasn't very discreet if anyone came in to make something for that special someone but that didn't phase Takane at all. She openly had her heart on her sleeves and encouraged young couples. To say V-day and White Day wasn't her favorite holidays would be an understatement.

"Remember to follow the instructions carefully though. Many accidents happen due to accidentally putting in the wrong ingredients. Us members in the Home Ec. Club has taken the measure of labeling every item you see at the work stations. When you ever need us to check your work, don't hesitate to call upon us. Remember! The key ingredient today is love! Please put your heart into your cooking everyone!"

"You're no pro!" A male called in the back wearing a head scarf to keep his long bangs back. He too wore a red apron. A few guys in their group laughed as well while Takane fumed and pumped her fist into the air. "It's the feeling that counts! Love conquerors all!" She shouted as her battle cry amidst the laughter in the room, undaunted at being the spectacle of the day before heading over to join his group in making cupcakes.

Mirai turned to face Takane and the whiteboard as soon as the senior girl called them to attention. As a member of the Home Ec. club Mirai was already familiar with the name written there, as most of the club would no doubt be, but she supposed there were people attending who were not members of the club and would need that introduction.

Takane requested the students break off into their groups based on what they were going to make and Mirai was faced with the choice of which group to chose. She headed to the left of the room, where they were going to be focusing on cookies. Cookies, Mirai thought, would be fairly easy to share around if she decided to give a few to a couple of different people. She absentmindedly leafed through the recipes for cookies as she listened to Takane give her speech about how the day would be organised and made poor jokes about feelings. It brought a small smile to Mirai's lips, not because she found the jokes themselves funny but because Takane was putting so much energy into it. At least Takane was having fun even if no-one else seemed to find it amusing.

Follow the instructions. That couldn’t be too difficult. Most of these recipes had detailed step-by-step methods so it would be hard to get something wrong.

"You're no pro!" some guy up the back called out. Mirai glanced at him, frowning; it was a bit rude to say something like that, particularly to shout it in a crowded room. She went to join the guy afterwards though, so Mirai supposed she must not have been too offended.

Mirai flipped through the recipes a bit more before settling on one - a recipe for shortbread cookies. One that was both tasty and extremely simple. She ran her finger over the page, checking the list of ingredients against the supplies set out on a nearby table. Satisfied that everything she needed for the recipe was on the table there, she went to fetch a mixing bowl to get started on the recipe.

Mika really wanted to improve her cooking. Her failure to be of assistance in the last work project of the Home Ec. club left her embarrassed to say the least. Mika hatred for failures on her part more so than her boiling feelings toward her brother. Her thin frame peeked into the cooking room as everyone started to slowly filter in with sentry red aprons hovering around the other students as some form of helicopter parenting. A welcome addition than last time she had someone help her only to turn into a lecture of something much more complicated.

I will make something this time. Mika reaffirmed with herself as she washed her hands and put in an apron to try the candy section. It shouldn't be too hard. Just melted down sugars reshaped. Mika could try working on that and if they turn out good then she'll try something more complex; cookies. Mika silently psyched herself up by balling her hands into doll like fists as she arrived at the station. Containers for sugar, flavoring syrups, and thermometers?! The sight of it made her skeptical on what they were going to make.

"Miss, I suggest you pick out a recipe," a red apron senior advised. "If you need help on picking one, I can help on this as well." They offered with some idea of Mika's skills. They were part of the bento crafting the previous year and had a general idea of how ill experienced Mika is. The girl mostly did come to the club to be a clothing model and did little outside of the sewing department. The senior picked out a card and handed it to Mika with a smirk on their face. "This should be a starter. Even a five year old can make this one." They jeered before leaving to check on the cake side.

Mika took the card with an annoyed look and read off the top. Rock candy? Candied rocks? Challenge accepted.

((OOC: apologies for how super late this is, real life has been really busy for me))

Finding a mixing bowl and a spoon wasn’t too hard - there was a table piled with various bowls, trays and utensils ready for participants to take, minded by a red-aproned student to help if anyone needed assistance selecting the right tools to cook with. Mirai helped herself to just a bowl, wooden spoon and measuring cup for the moment; she’d need to get a tray later but she’d do that when she got to the part of the recipe where she actually needed it.

Mirai checked the recipe again: the first step was to cream the butter and sugar together. Should be easy enough. She hadn’t actually tried cooking anything in awhile that required creaming butter and sugar but it was something that would be pretty hard to get wrong. She collected some butter and sugar, measuring them carefully, and dumped them in her bowl.

She was just about to start creaming them together when she spotted Mika at the candies station. She remembered the girl from the the day they'd moved back into the school dorms; she'd joined them to play Inori's card game. Mirai glanced around; she wasn’t sure if she was supposed to be leaving the cookies section while still holding her bowl but she wanted to say hello to Mika and didn’t want to leave the bowl on a table where it might get in someone else’s way. So, arm wrapped around the bowl, Mirai crept over to the candies section and waved at Mika. “Hello!” Fearing the bowl might slip from her grasp, Mirai put both hands back on it now that she didn’t need to leave one free to wave. “What are you planning to make?”

((it's okay. it's been a bit crazy))

Mika read over the recipe card for the fourth time as she was approached by a girl carrying a mixing bowl. Her head cocked to the side at first before recognizing who was wearing the apron. "It's you," she spoke as vaguely as possible. They met some time about during the large dorm move in and had more of a touch and go experience within the Home Ec. club. Mika did her best to smile somewhat after greeting fairly rudely before putting her attention back to the card given to her. "A senior suggested I make this as a starter." Putting it lightly on that suggestion since there was a clear reason why Mika was more focused in the fashion and clothing aspect of Home Ec. than the cooking side of things.

"And what of you?" She then asked. Her work to make rock candy needed a lot of sugar, a glass container, string, and some food coloring. Mirai on the other hand had a full mixing bowl. It looked kinda soupy so it might be cake, maybe. "I was thinking of making something for some friends. Maybe for my brother as well. If there are any leftovers."

The door to the room cracked very slightly. Light crimson eyes peered into the room, slender fingers holding the door knob tightly. Gingerly, she pushed the door open more to slide into the room. Most people were chatting with one another or had already started on their recipes, it seemed. Kokuro glanced around the room bashfully. She knew the basics of cooking and could even cook intricate multi-course meals such as the kaiseki served in nice restaurants. It was easy to learn recipes and remember them as well as remember what flavors went with what to make for exceptional and sometimes interesting taste. But there was always something that she felt her dishes lacked. Especially sweet dishes.

She'd been standing outside of the door for a short while after realizing she was a little late to the party. Mostly, she eavesdropped. She could hear what the senior said. Something about love being included within a dish? The thought was perplexing. How could one add an emotion into a dish? It wasn't until Kokuro moved throughout the room quietly, peering down at what groups of people and individuals alike were doing with their dishes that strangers began to glance toward her. It just didn't make sense. None of these people seemed to be doing anything out of the ordinary. They were just mixing ingredients for baking, mostly. It wasn't too long into her trek through the room that she was confronted by someone in a red apron. The conversation basically consisted of Kokuro needing to pick out a recipe or leave rather than hover about.

Ultimately, she chose to make macarons. They were simple, colorful, and most people liked them. Though, being new, it wasn't like she had anyone to really give them to anyway. On her quest to gather the proper supplies, Kokuro walked past the table where the two girls chatted. She happened to look down at the recipe within the blonde girl's hands. Rock candy? A thought came to her mind. Pastel pink strawberry marshmallow cream macaroons with bits of darker pink rock candy baked into the top. Pleased with her creative thinking, Kokuro collected the ingredients to make rock candy and took a few moments getting it started. As soon as it was finished, she sealed the jar loosely with saran wrap before collecting the supplies to make the actual macarons. Balancing the supplies as well as her jar of developing rock candy on a thread, Kokuro made her way to the table the two girls were chatting at, not really paying attention if that was where she was actually supposed to go. She set her supplies on the table beside the blonde at a reasonable distance and took a breath.

"Hello," her soft voice spoke meekly to the two strangers, her posture overall was uncomfortable until she looked to the blonde girl, adjusting her lens-less glasses. "I didn't mean to be strange in peeking at your recipe like I did, but it gave me a very good idea." The meekness was quickly hidden within the girl's rambling words. "I was listening outside of the door before I came in and I heard that senior in the red apron say something about needing to include love within recipes. I don't really understand how one would include a feeling within a recipe, but the thought makes me want to try adding a different component to what is otherwise a normal dessert-" as she spoke, her hands moved, separating yolks from egg whites and mixing the egg whites together with caster sugar.

Mirai leaned over to look at the recipe in Mika’s hands: rock candy. Sounded like it could be interesting. In her opinion she preferred sweets that had a little more substance to them, such as biscuits and cakes, than the more heavily sugar-based treats, but that didn’t mean that rock candy wasn’t still tasty. “Well, I think it looks like it will be delicious,” Mirai said, beaming.

Mika inquired as to what Mirai was making. “Me? Oh, I’m going to make shortbread.” Mirai glanced down at her bowl and gave it one final stir; the butter and sugar was now light and fluffy, thoroughly creamed together. It was probably about time to start adding in the other ingredients. “I think it’s nice that you’re making it for friends. I didn’t really have a plan of someone to give it to, I just wanted to bake something…” she trailed off.

Soon the two found themselves being greeted by another student. Mirai didn’t think she’d ever met this student before, but it was nice that the student had come to apologize for possibly seeming a bit weird by looking at Mika’s recipe, though in truth Mirai hadn’t even noticed the newcomer looking. She mentioned something about Mika’s rock candy recipe giving her an idea to try something new with a recipe, but Mirai wondered that idea could possibly be. The new girl was currently doing something with - eggs and sugar, was it, that she was combining in her bowl? What was the girl making and how was she planning on changing it up? "Hello!" Mirai said, turning to the newcomer. “That’s so cool to experiment with different ways of making it... it must be harder if you don’t have a recipe to follow exactly. What are you making?”

"Delicious?" The candy is made a sugar pretty much but would it be delicious from a first timer? The girl wondered of this then Mika learned close to the bowl and sniffed it. The butter and sugar combined had that good feeling sort of smell found in bakeries. "I would like to try some," she then spoke forwardly of the other girl's cooking. Seeing Mirai had that kind of promise that she can accomplish these shortbread without trouble. She returned to try reading her own card about rock candies for the 8th time now when someone new arrived in a way that left both her and Mirai bewildered.

"Hello?" Mika tested the waters but the apology that came out was just odd. She too wasn't aware that someone was spying the card in hand. It was pretty much in open view with large font thanks to the few steps rock candy needed to be made. Clearly this card was a grade 1 card in cooking levels.

"I...see," she replied slowly as her eyes watched the new girl spoke of adding feelings into cooking while seamlessly cracking eggs and separating the yoke. Was this girl a kitchen pro? Mika bit on her molars and pressed her thumb into the recipe card where it bent a bit under pressure. "I should get to work on this...candy rock. It appears it has to set for awhile before trying a new card."

Mika excuses herself to collect the jars and sticks and sugar for making these rock candies. Dyes of pick, blue, and orange were selected to make herself busy instead of wasting time all on one sugar water jar. She followed the card to the letter when mixing in the sugar and getting the coloring of the liquid right. This may have been too tedious of a task for a pro that would have accomplished all this in five but watching Mika make the recipe last longer than that could make one wonder if she was stalling or taking the directions too literally.

The girl continued to reference the card while carrying out each step to the letter while rolling the gathering sticks in sugar to help the crystal grow. Each stick was placed in with some help securing the sticks in the rough center of the jars so they won't be leaning on the sides. It was taken to the back room for the cars to keep out of sunlight and have the sugar form.

Having accomplished her level one task of making sugar rocks, Mika smiled faintly at the work it took and went to find a new recipe card. The other girl that approached them said that the candy gave her an idea to be toppings of these macaroon things. Out of curiosity, Mika looked for the macaroon cards only to find that it was a much higher level of skill. This was most certainly not a beginner's cooking item. Mika stared at the number of ingredients needed and directions before slowly putting it away with the care of an explosive's expert before searching up something easier. "Easier...something...easier.."

Kokuro easily remembered the recipe for macaroons within her mind. Strawberry marshmallow cream macaroons were her grandmother's favorite treat and the two made them together every year for her birthday. Stopping her movement in preparing the ingredients, Kokuro nodded towards the blonde as she excused herself, even managing a small smile before turning to the second girl. She didn't seem to notice the blonde's somewhat offput reaction to her due to being so focused on her creation and rambling, though she was excited the two were both making rock candy. It would be something to remember one another by, well, at least to Kokuro. "I'm making strawberry marshmallow cream macaroons, but this time I'm going to try baking rock candy into them. They are something me and my grandmother have made together for years so I actually remember the recipe. It will be weird adding something new. It's not really something I do while cooking, but.." Stopping herself to avoid another ramble, Kokuro tilted her head to look at the stranger. "What about you? What are you making?"

As she awaited the girl's answer, Kokuro ground up almonds within a bowl and added icing sugar shortly after. While still listening to her new acquaintance, she lifted the bowl from the table and started to turn to walk towards a table that had appliances. The food processor was her main objective, but she was also intent on listening to the girl. She wasn't very good at social interactions and attempting to get better at it with these two lady strangers seemed to be a good goal to accomplish. As such, her eyes never left her fellow baker, but in the process of starting her trek to the appliance table Kokuro did not realize her left shoe laces on her worn shoes were undone. Her right foot stood heavy on said shoelaces and, while still making steady eye contact with the girl that slowly turned into pools of panic, toppled forward to the ground. The bowl fell to the floor as well, spilling its contents. Luckily, they were dry. Her glasses, which sat loose on her face, fell as well and skidded across the floor.

"Oh no.." The previous confidence within her voice vanished as it became hushed once more. The weight of embarrassment seemed to shove itself into her shoulders, leaving her unable to get up. Even if eyes were not on her, she could feel the pressure of judgement. She'd always been clumsy, maybe this was why her grandmother always insisted on helping her in the kitchen..? Maybe she was literally, actually cursed. So much for attempting to socialize with her peers. This was borderline devastating. A few years ago, this would have been a simple get up and clean up situation, but ever since her interest in learning about others, their opinions and actions as well as their reactions to her suddenly became important. Was this what 'normal' people went through daily? Oh humanity, you are a cruel mistress.

“Of course you can try some,” Mirai said. It was good that there was someone excited to try her baking. It was pleasing that she now had at least one person who she knew would share the shortbread with her; seeing as she didn’t have anyone in particular in mind to give it to it would have been sad if she had to either eat it all herself or beg other people to eat it for her. Having someone who wanted to eat it made it just that much easier.

It seemed Mika needed to get to work on completing the rock candy. “All right, I hope the rock candy turns out well,” Mirai said as Mika headed off to work on them. Mirai joined the new girl at the table to gather the ingredients she’d need next. She didn’t know anything, really, about this new girl but working alongside her would be preferable to working on her own while she waited for Mika to return from doing the next steps on her rock candy.

Mirai needed flour and a pinch of salt next. She measured out the flour carefully, triple-checking the recipe to make sure she had the right amount; she was trying to measure and listen to the other girl talking at the same time and it would have been easy to make a mistake. “That sounds so cool! And it’s always fun to try doing something new. I think your grandmother would love to see you adding to it. It must have been fun to bake with her so much." Holding a sieve above the mixing bowl, Mirai tipped the flour in. “I’m making shortbread,” she said to answer the question as she shifted the flour into the bowl.

The girl began to leave the table as Mirai began to stir in the sifted flour; Mirai assumed she was leaving to get something or other for her recipe. But before long there was a mighty crash of girl and bowl falling to the ground.

Mirai left her bowl on the table and hurried over to the girl, stepping around the mess. “Oh no! Are you all right?” The girl didn’t seem to be getting up, so Mirai held her out to help her up if needed it. “Do you need any help? It’s such a shame that you’ll have to start again… I can clean this up while you redo it if you like.”

Mika did her best to measure with care and coat the sugar sticks for growing the crystals. She wanted to strive for perfection on her first attempt to be a clear success to avoid looking foolish. Mika honestly didn't know much of kitchen functionality and methods but truly believed that if she followed the card to the letter, then there was no way her low skills would grant a swift failure. Thin fingertips thumbed through the list of recipe cards for an item similar to the rock candies.

As she browsed through the files for something that would be impossible to fail, a clatter of metal to the floor earned the looks of many. Seniors in red aprons quickly divided out to fetch the cleaning supplies as the head of the cooking event came over with clear worry on her face for the student.

"Ohmygosh! Are you hurt?" They asked in fear if the fallen girl needed to be taken to the nurses'office. Upon seeing the mess, she called back to a fellow red apron. "It's a dry mess. Don't use the mop," she instructed before checking the girl. Mirai joined in as well to see if the macaroon lady was well.

Mikazuki got up and looked over at both the girl and mess at hand. Her eyes shone worry but her face remained that stressed focus for reading through filed recipe cards. She wasn't sure how to approach them as two people already answered to the scene are medical first response units. instead, she observed the fallen items and went to Chou's station to look over what was used. She began taking another bowl and started setting out ingredients for the macaroon girl to quickly pick up where they left off. While Mikazuki still felt a ting of jealousy that Chou had near flawless cooking abilities, she didn't want them to feel too too embarrassing of having to start over. This messy situation reminded her how something similar happened back during winter with some spilled hot chocolate.

Trying to hang on to Mirai's words about grandmother as determination to face the room, Kokuro slowly pushed herself from the floor into a siting position. There were others there waiting for her, of course. Her cheeks slowly began to flush, but she tried to recover. The best thing to do at this point would be to withdraw into her normal, numb and calculating self. It was harder to learn about people that way, but easy to keep them out and easy to avoid uncomfortable feelings such as embarrassment. Her attention was turned to the dark haired girl as she offered to clean the mess, both of the girls who attended to her seemed genuinely worried about her safety. Seeing this, it was hard to worry about anybody laughing or making fun of her clumsiness.

Kokuro held her hands up, offering the two a smile. "N-no need to worry, really.." Seeing that the mess was already being attended to, she felt a little sense of home for the first time. This was around the time her grandmother would offer that the two of them work together to clean the mess up and finish the recipe. It wasn't anything to fret over. "It's not anything.. To fret over.." She repeated her grandmother's words softly before looking to Mirai and taking the girl's hand to be helped up, a genuine smile touching her features. "Thank you, I appreciate the help. Really." Once on her two feet, she bowed to both the senior and Mirai as well as to the ones attending to her mess before she could.

Looking to the table the girls were sharing, she caught sight of the blond just as she was setting down the exact ingredients Chou had spilled everywhere. She looked back to Mirai, "I shouldn't keep you away from your shortbread much longer. I'm alright, really!" She hadn't made it far from the table, so in the same movement she smiled at the blond. "Thank you very much, you grabbed exactly what I needed." Her slender fingers rubbed the back of her neck bashfully, "You didn't need to do that, but you did. I really appreciate you two being so kind to a new kid like me." For the first time since leaving home, her heart felt warm and it wasn't because of the words she was reading from a good book.

"So we are both waiting for our rock candy to finish crystallizing, right? And she has her hands full preparing her shortbread especially after my incident distracted her.. " Kokuro looked apologetically to the nice girl who had entertained her rambling about her grandmother, still feeling bad for prying her away from her shortbread before her attention shifted back to the blond who had brought her ingredients back. "If you don't have your eye set on a different recipe yet, would you like to prepare and bake macaroons together? We can make a double batch so you can share some with whoever you want, I don't really have anyone to share them with other than you two. And, while I do know how to cook, as you can see.." Kokuro smiled nervously at the two girls. "I'm rather clumsy with this sort of thing.. And most things. I suppose that's why I always had help when in the kitchen. I originally thought it was for the sake of being together, but perhaps it was more of a safety precaution." She couldn't help but chuckle softly into her hand.

"Of course, if you would rather do your own thing that's fine I don't want to be in your way or cause any more distractions."

The fall seemed to have drawn the attention of others across the room - some heads turned and a couple of the red-aproned students hurried over with cleaning supplies to get to work on clearing up the mess. The girl took and her hand and Mirai gave a small pull to help her up easier.

Mirai waved a hand as the girl bowed to them. “That’s all right. It’s no trouble.” A couple of red-aproned students had come over to help clean up the mess so it looked like Mirai’s help wouldn’t be needed anyway, though she still bent over to pick up the dropped bowl, more to make herself feel useful than anything else. A red-aproned girl soon took the bowl off her anyway, presumably to take it to be washed.

Mirai left her shortbread batter on the table for now, choosing instead to stay with the new girl for the moment to make sure she was all right and didn’t need anything else. The girl insisted that she was all right so Mirai said, “Oh, I don’t mind about the shortbread, it’s not something urgent. I’m glad you’re not hurt. Is there anything else you need?” Though, as soon as she said it, she noticed that it seemed like Mika was already on the job - she had gathered a bunch of ingredients, and apparently they were just what was needed for the macaroons. It was incredibly thoughtful of Mika to do that without having been asked.

The new girl mentioned the shortbread again and Mirai gave her a (hopefully encouraging) smile to try and reassure her that it really was no issue that she’d distracted Mirai from the shortbread.

It brought a smile to Mirai’s face to see the new girl’s offer of baking with Mika. It would be nice to see them working together; she felt like it would be a fun experience for the both of them. Part of her wished that she could join in baking something together but she already had her own recipe to work on. As the girl was explaining the offer of joint baking to Mika, Mirai took the chance to grab her mixing bowl again and start to work mixing the flour through before she turned back to the other two. The new girl was talking about how clumsy she was. "Maybe you just need practice to be less clumsy?" You didn't get any good at something without hours upon hours of practice, if years of kendo training had taught her anything it had taught her that. "I'm sure if you cook on your own more often you'd get used to it and start to get better at it." She looked at Mika, then back to the other girl. "You two cooking together still sounds like it would be fun though!"
