Sam [in the background, barefoot]: Give me back my shoes!
Female kayohash 2: Hee, it’s all “moof moof moof!” Cute!
Hira: You look hungry. Have you eaten?
Juni (huddled up in a corner): This isn’t where I meant to go.
Juni: I just wanted to… to go away. But the pod was diverted here, here, by whatever’s in control… Something meant for me to come here. But why?
Hira: Come on, dear. I have some nice fresh grubs.
Hira: I’ll make risotto. You still like that, right?
Juni: With honey?
Hira: Of course.
bonus recipe: Sauté shallots, mushrooms, and fresh beetle grubs in cold-pressed seed oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook until soft, about one centi. Add rice, stirring to coat with oil, until the rice becomes slightly flaxen (about 1.5 centis). Pour in 100cc wine, stirring constantly until absorbed, and slowly add vegetable broth 100cc at a time, stirring continuously until the broth is absorbed and the rice is al dente, about 1-1.2 kaysecs. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and garnish with finely-chopped pondgrass and a drizzle of honey [rustic Kajoshu style].
