“It’s coming along. I’ve talked to just about everyone I absolutely have to talk to. Still working on getting to meet all the senior staff, but I’m sure some kind of staff meeting will take care of that eventually,” Jenn stepped over to a nearby chair and slid into it. “Emotionally, I’m in a much better place for sure. I’m missing the Equinox and her crew, but I think I’ll move past that eventually, just like I did when I was transferred from the Wolverine to the Equinox.”

She was thoughtful for a moment, then shrugged. “So… what’s for dinner?”

Koraia set a sieve of rice into a large bowl of water and swirled it around with her fingertips to get all the grains to sink. “Well, I know you don’t like too much spice, but I thought I might try my signature dish on you,” she said with a smirk. “It’s a common one where I’m from. Banana beef curry. Ever had anything like it before?” She was very mindful that the heat was knocked way down since she was all too aware that her sense of heat was not always the same as others.

“Ah… curry…” Jennifer tried to give Ghubari a genuine smile. She’d been fed some curries during her time at the Academy. This might go well, or it might go horribly wrong. All depended on the amount of spice the good captain thought would be appropriate. “I’ve had some curries before. Not sure if I’ve ever had Banana Beef Curry, but it could have happened. Ellie was an adventurous cook,” she let out a slightly nervous chuckle, remembering the Dream Team and all their chaos. “My friends in the Academy, we, uh, had kind of a round robin thing with meals. One of the guys, Gari, came up with the idea, something about tasting all that our many cultures had to offer. I got taken out of the rotation pretty quickly when they found out how bland my… cuisine was.” She reminisced softly. It was nice talking about her past… somehow it helped make the future more palatable.

Ghubari chuckled. “Well, I can tell you’re not enthused, but there is rice and flatbread, along with some salad, so you won’t starve,” she said with a wink. “In fact, there’s a tossed salad in the fridge in a bowl, if you want to grab that and and something to scoop it with.”

Meanwhile, she lifted the lid on the simmering curry and gave it a stir. Grabbing a spoon, she carefully tasted it and nodded. While the spices were heady, the heat level of the chilies was way down. It was mild, but still had a tiny bit of warmth. “A little bit more salt I think,” she said, dipping her fingertips into a salt crock to her left and sprinkling some salt into the pot before giving it another stir. “Another few minutes and I think it’ll be done.”
