[354] Dead Fish Eyes vs. Dead Fish Eyes

Chapter 354: Dead Fish Eyes vs. Dead Fish Eyes

The three of them left the villa and quickly arrived at a nearby convenience store.

Since the island was developed as a tourist destination, it had all the facilities one could need: multiple convenience stores, hotels, hospitals, and even entertainment facilities like bars and karaoke.

Entering the supermarket, Erina pushed a shopping cart into Hachiman's hands.

"You push," she said.

Hachiman didn't mind. After all, he understood that he was here to do the heavy lifting.

Taking the cart from the girl's hands, he casually scratched her palm.

"You..."

Sensing Hachiman's slight move, Erina felt a mix of embarrassment and anger. About to react, she remembered Hisako was there too. Helplessly, she just gave Hachiman a fierce glare.

But Hisako was still puzzled. "Miss Erina, what's wrong?"

"Nothing, just a bug flew onto my hand," Erina quickly shook her head, then took Hisako's hand and walked ahead.

"Let's go, Hisako."

Hachiman shrugged and followed behind the two girls.

In the ingredient section, Erina and Hisako began selecting items.

As outstanding students of Totsuki, they were well-versed in identifying ingredients.

Hachiman, on the other hand, didn't pay much attention. With his current cooking skills, he could turn ordinary ingredients into delicious dishes.

"What do you want to make for breakfast today?" Erina asked without looking back as she picked ingredients.

Hachiman waved his hand. "Whatever you guys feel like, I can make anything."

"Hmph, always boasting," Erina rolled her eyes.

"With countless types of cuisine in the world, how could you possibly know how to make everything?" she challenged.

Hearing her words, Hachiman just smiled, not bothering to argue.

While it was true that there were countless cuisines in the world, with his maxed-out "Learning" and "Cooking" modules, he could almost instantly grasp the methods for any dish.

"Anyway, let's keep breakfast simple: grilled saury, thick omelette, and miso soup, sound good?" Erina asked, holding up a box of saury.

The sauries were stored in the freezer, each one seemingly staring blankly with dead fish eyes.

Speaking of which, except for sharks, most fish species don't have eyelids and can't blink, so their eyes appear lifeless after death.

Glancing at the saury in her hand, then at Hachiman beside her, Erina suddenly burst out laughing.

"What do you think? Seeing eyes just like yours, does it make you uncomfortable?"

Hearing her words, Hachiman smirked.

What do you mean 'same eyes'? Don't talk nonsense, or you'll get slapped.

"You're cheeky, Erina. Be careful, or I might lose my temper," Hachiman squinted.

"Pfft, you? Lose your temper? What can you do to me?" Erina glanced at him, unfazed.

Seeing the girl's smug look, Hachiman reached out and pinched her smooth cheek.

Suddenly being treated so intimately by Hachiman, Erina naturally felt both embarrassed and angry.

"Wow, you jerk, what are you doing all of a sudden?"

Feeling the smooth touch of his fingertips, Hachiman shrugged.

"Didn't you provoke me, Erina? Well, I'm just returning the favor."

Hearing his somewhat rogueish words, Erina felt exasperated.

To casually pinch a girl's face like this was simply acting like a hoodlum, and doing it in public... Did he have no shame left?

Even though it was a private conversation...

Bah, even if it's private, it's not acceptable.

"You jerk, hurry up and let go," Erina blushed and said.

But Hachiman still showed no intention of letting go. "I won't let go. What can you do to me?"

Seeing his stubbornness, Erina felt like she was going to pass out from anger.

"You won't let go, huh? Fine, if you have the guts, keep holding on."

After saying this, the girl opened her small silver teeth and bit towards Hachiman's hand that was pinching her face.

Unexpectedly, Erina was going to bite him, which surprised Hachiman, causing him to subconsciously release his hand.

It wasn't that he was afraid of being bitten; he was worried about breaking the girl's small teeth.

Seeing Hachiman release his hand, Erina felt a sense of triumph.

"Hmph, you said you wouldn't let go, right? Why did you let go?"

The childish behavior of the girl made Hachiman feel amused.

It seemed that his "training" was effective. Otherwise, the Erina of the past, with her personality, would never have acted so childishly.

"Alright, alright, you win. Let's continue choosing ingredients," Hachiman praised with a smile.

Dealing with a tsundere character, it's better to stroke her fur the right way.

Sure enough, after hearing Hachiman's words, Erina just snorted lightly without retorting.

They put several boxes of saury into the shopping cart, along with a box of fresh eggs and some ingredients for miso soup.

As for the staple food, it would naturally be rice. There were still some Akita rice in the villa, which was perfect to use.

Akita rice was a type of rice produced in Akita Prefecture, and it was quite famous throughout Japan.

The grains were neat, white, and translucent, and whether it was the fragrance, gloss, elasticity, or stickiness, it was considered top-quality rice.

Besides Akita rice, Akita Prefecture was also famous for Akita dogs.

Yes, those smiling and "healing" silly dogs.

And the famous loyal dog Hachiko was an Akita dog.

After buying the ingredients for breakfast, what remained was the food needed for the barbecue party.

Various types of meat were essential, along with various side dishes and beer.

As the "chief grill master" for the barbecue party, Hachiman also joined in the selection.

"How about this beef?"

"No good, this is beef leg meat, more suitable for stewing. The texture is too tough for grilling."

"Come on, Erina, you're so picky. Even with beef leg meat, I can grill it deliciously."

"Ugh, you jerk, just because you're better at cooking than me..."

As they picked ingredients, the two bantered, leaving Hisako, who was following them, feeling a bit strange.

When did Miss Erina and Hachiman's relationship become so good?

Although they seemed to be bickering, the atmosphere was quite warm. Plus, they occasionally discussed what dishes to make. To outsiders, they seemed like a newlywed couple.

At this moment, Hisako felt both happy and melancholic.

She was happy to see Miss Erina making new friends, but she felt melancholic because she was no longer the only one in Miss Erina's life.
