When the black handler agreed to going to get the firewood, Devyn gave him a small smile. "I agree, we should most certainly fish some more. You're right about letting them go too. I've always been taught you never keep more than you need, and by the looks of these fish, I say one each should bey more than enough for lunch for us."
Devyn was glad that Darrow had the same mind set as him, without even really knowing anything about this. After that, the chimera handler set to work doing what he needed to do. First he quickly got himself set up to clean the fish. While it wouldn't take a long time, it would take time enough, so he felt like he should get started as soon as he could. First he cleaned the fish, getting all of the scales and everything off of it, and then he gutted the fish, finally making them ready to go in a fire. The whole time he had been doing this, he'd been thinking about when he used to do this back home with his friends and his family. It was fun, it had always been fun. Now, he was glad that he could share this with Darrow as well.
It seemed like just as he finished, Darrow came back with the wood. So it was actually really perfect timing on both of their parts. Smiling he said,”Actually, I just finished cleaning them, so as soon as we get that fire started, we can start cooking them.”
With that, he grabbed two of the pointier sticks that the black handler had brought back, and skewered the fish onto them and gently set them aside. After he was done with that he moved to help Darrow get the fire going. With the two of them clearing the grass, it didn’t take them long at all, and then they set up the logs and everything that he had brought back.
Turning to his friend he gave him a grin and said, ”Would you like to do the honors or lighting the fire since you are the one who went and collected all the wood? Then I will cook the fish and you can tell me how good or bad my coooking skills are?”
Of course his cooking skills were good enough, but he had just wanted to keep everything light and teasing and fun.
