>>774>Aiden nods and looks at both of the Hoyokazi women, stating:
"Sure, why not? There's a specific place I had in mind - not crowded at all, and it's good that you agreed to it."
>Aiden turns around to leave, as he says:
"Because I already bought the place."
——————————————————————————>Time: 12:30 PM>Location: Sanctuary City - Downtown Section
>Aiden sits at a table in a small restaurant - across from both Hiyuki and Kaiyo. The restaurant is a relatively new pop-up in the city, and a local establishment as to avoid drawing unnecessary attention to them both. Even so, the entire restaurant was booked for roughly an hour in advance. True to his word, virtually no one is present, as Aiden had instructed personnel to give them privacy for an hour or so.
>Picking up his soft drink, Aiden takes a quick sip of it; his drink being a concoction with a dark red hue - presumably a mixture of cherry flavor and soda. As he does so, Aiden takes a moment to stare Hiyuki in the eye with an inquisitive glance - a flicker of curiosity in the shape of his eyebrow's slight closure. Afterwards, he sets his glass down and looks at Hiyuki before saying:
"I'm not exactly going to bite. There's no real trick here, and I'm just wanting to know if you're liking the food so far."
>Aiden points at the bountiful buffet before them both - large baskets full of cooked meat, fried food and other delicacies - filled to brim and almost about to topple from their resting places. The aroma of well cooked bread and meat fills the air around the table, as Aiden looks over the food items.
"Steak, medium rare. Hot dogs, as you'd expect from what you've read about them, deep dark grill marks. Burgers, just well done with some slight grill marks as well. Also lightly salted, just like the french fries."
>Pointing down at the plate of neatly sliced grilled chicken before them - he then says:
"Also the chicken. I made sure to ask for that in smaller portions, since I'm not familiar with your taste palette, or your sister's."
>Aiden says, giving a glance to Kaiyo.
"So, what do you think so far?"
>Aiden says, as he gestures to the unmentioned food items, an assortment of: ham, gravy, vegetables, fruits and other cuisine items on the table as well.
