The Diamond of Kalea is located on Kalea's extreme west coast and called as such because its completely made of a crystalline substance called Skyglass. Home of the Alvina of the Stars, cultural mecca of knowledge seekers, and rife with Ethaefal, this remote city shimmers with its own unique light.

Make your own lunch

Timestamp: Day 30 of Spring 515 AV
Location: A farm on Sharai Peak
Continues from : Pulley inspection

The "informal lunch" turned out to mean they were going to cook it themselves. The farm provided boiled rice but the fresh vegetables were raw and unprepared and required the guests to sit at their own small cooking fires and peel, chop and stirfry their own lunch. Every cooking fire had an assortment of kitchen tools and there were plates, cutlery and mugs.

"I haven't done much cooking" Ornea informed Edward. "It's chiet work. In Wind Reach I mean. But I'm sure it's alright that I cook here in Lhavit. If you say so."

Edward smiled. "I say so".

Ornea looked at the utensiles, picked up knife, and started to slowly peel a carrot. Edward had picked a knife too, and it was obvious that he must have made this kind of lunch many times before, because he worked much faster and before she had even finished peeling her carrot he was already chopping thing into beautiful and even little pieces. It looked nice. The half peeled carrot she was working at just looked mediocre.

"You can slice the mushrooms" Edward suggested, when she finally was done with peeling the carrot. "Let me take care of this one ..." He snatched the carrot and started to chop it neatly. Ornea had planned to just cut it to pieces, but her employer made long thin sticks of it.

She took the mushrooms and sliced them. They were soft and it was a very easy task. Ornea felt content to be able to contribute and do her part of the work, so she felt alright with doing the absolute beginner things. When she was done with the mushrooms she chopped herbs. After this she tended to the fire; she was at least not a novice at tending to fires.

"It looks like we're ready to cook" said Edward. "Put the pan over the fire!"

Ornea took the frying pan. It was a wide and deep pan, with one quite long handle on it, the kind of pan they used in Lhavit. She had sometimes been commissioned to made pans in Wind Reach, as she was a metalsmith, but they had been different.She studied the pan with professional interest.

There was a small metal fram with three legs placed over the fire and she took it this was where the pan ought to be placed so she put it there. Edward handed her a bottle of oil and told her to heat it up. She followed the instructions and looked at him again, waiting for orders.

"Now you just put the vegetables in the pan and stir fry them. It's easy".

Ornea had no idea what he meant but she tossed all the vegetables into the pan so quickly and efficiently that Edward didn't get time to tell her that they needed to be added in a specific order. The old man shouted a "No!" but too late. Ornea watched him without knowing what to do, and and Edward took a long stick and started to stir, in order to at least save their lunch from getting burned.

After this there was no more instructions for her. Edward took care of the cooking and soon they had the food on their plates. It was colorful and looked beautiful. Despite the cooking mistake it tasted good.

"You are a good cook Edward" she said after they had eaten in silence for a while.

"Glad you like it". He smiled. "Don't be so quick next time. This is good enough, but it tastes even better if you first stir the hard vegetables like carrots and then add the softer ones, and finally the herbs, just for a half chime or so before you take the pan off the fire."

She nodded. The atmosphere was peaceful. Ornea didn't want to spoil the moment by asking Edward about the thing she had been wondering about after she had done her research about tin alloys and found those mysterious notes by somebody named Saverne Rodine. It was always the same. She thought of it, but she never found the right time to speak with Edward about it.

She thought of all the things she had never spoken about with other people in her life, as everyday life had moved on and constantly sent all kinds of practical things her way. All those words she'd never said, for reasons she didn't know.

Perhaps it would never come, the right moment.

"It's best we go back to work Ornea". Edward rose and made ready to leave. "We have one more pulley to inspect. Let's get it done!"

Comments: Hi Ornea! Another lovely thread. The more I read, the more I warm to Ornea. She is a complex individual- I've enjoyed her feistiness, and now her subtle wistfulness. Good writing.

Enjoy your grade, and please don't forget to delete/edit out your grade request. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to send me a PM.
