Komatsu, who didn't feel cold anymore, started to help cook the food.
Haru was eating a hot pot fish that he had made using the Great Leg Fish and Sharkcrocodile earlier.
"Damn, this is good," Toriko said and looked at him, "You're a chef, Haru?"
Haru thought for a while and shook his head, "I'm a novelist, cooking is only my hobby."
"Really? But..." Komatsu also tried his food. He could feel that his body started to get warm and his heart also felt warm too. He could feel that there was love in this food and made him feel that it was prepared with a lot of care. He felt that he was attacked by a lot of monsters but he felt safe since there was someone protecting him in front of him.
"T - this is good," Komatsu praised.
"I'm happy that you like it," Haru nodded.
"Yosh, it's my time to prepare something for you," Komatsu said and started to cook.
Luffy and Toriko who was glutton ate the food with very fast movement.
Haru was glad that he had taken quite a lot of fish when he was on the ship. He turned his attention to Takimaru, "Takimaru, are you fasting?"
Takimaru shook his head, "I can't eat meat."
"Oh, is it the famous Gourmet Knight?" Match asked.
"Yes, I'm," Takimaru nodded with a smile.
Match only smiled and didn't say anything. He looked at him and said, "I'm thankful for this help."
Haru nodded, "Match-san, are you a yakuza or something?"
Match nodded, "Yes, we're a Gourmet Mafia, you should visit our place, even though it is quite poor, but we are confident about our casino."
"Did you say casino?" Tsunade who was eating a fish looked at him with a serious expression.
"Yes, what's wrong?" Match asked.
Tsunade turned toward him, "Haru, let's stop at the casino first before we go back."
Haru frowned and said, "You're going to lose a lot of money there! Also, do you even have enough money to play there?"
"Don't worry about such small things," Tsunade said with a smile.
Haru only twitched his lips while looking at her response. He didn't mind visiting Gourmet Casino when this woman had quite great skill but this woman had never had luck on gambling. She was a big fat sheep that was ready to be slaughtered by a casino. He shook his head, "No way, you will lose."
"No, we will go, no matter what!" Tsunade said.
"What is a casino?" Luffy asked.
"It's a place where you bet on money or food," Toriko said.
"Food! Let's go there!" Luffy said.
Tsunade smiled, "Alright, it is two against one, we will go to the casino after this mission."
Haru decided not to talk anymore, the worst case that they would run away from the casino when they lost money.
Komatsu finished his cooking and prepared it for everyone.
They had a feast tonight and decided to rest early since they needed to continue their journey later.
Tsunade stayed with him since it was better than staying with a group of a macho man, also, his ability to warm the temperature was too cheating.
Earlier that day, the second party headed for the mountain.
When the group of Gourmet Hunter was walking together headed to the mountain, there was one person with a suit and sunglasses looking around.
The man in sunglasses looked around and said, "Isn't your snow siesta over yet? Wake up, Barry."
The ice started to crack slowly and revealed a figure inside.
"Yawn, my bad, I just laid down for a nap and the next thing I know I'm snowed over," a muscular man with a mustache, beard, and tusks in his mouth. Barrygamon is the Chief of Gourmet Corp.'s 4th Branch and the Cookware Supply Team. He looked at him, "Hoo? What do we have here? Is your new host a Gourmet Security officer?"
"So-called glutton champion I borrowed at first was too weak, this Security Gourmet guy's an improvement."
His name is Bogie Woods and he is the Chief of Gourmet Corp.'s 5th Branch, the Food Preparation Team. He looked at him, "More importantly, where is the vice-chef?"
Barry pointed his finger and said, "Probably sleeping inside someplace."
Suddenly there was an explosion that caused both of them to surprise. They turned their heads and saw an explosion on the stomach of the Tundra Dragon. They saw a hole in its stomach and a small figure came out from inside. They gulped their saliva when they saw him.
"Yawn, nothing better than a good night's sleep," this person was looking at both of them.
The man has a lean build and a bug-like appearance complete with navy, c.o.c.kroach-like wings. He sports a bob cut hairstyle with a pink pigment.
"Now, where is my breakfast? I trust you know the location of Century Soup, Bogie?" The man smiled wickedly.
"Yes, Tommryrod-sama." Barry and Bogie said at the same time.
They were very respectful to the man in front of them since his identity was something that they didn't dare to offend and they were also too weak to fight him.
Tommyrod, or simply Tommy, is one of the Sous Chefs of Gourmet Corp.
The three people joined the expedition of the Century Soup and the result of their this action could become a disaster or something more.
Haru was sleeping while remembering Sora. He knew that the time of his world was stopped when he entered the mission. Though, he still missed her since he needed to stay for a long time in this place. He could hear that everyone was sleeping right now and he wasn't sure why but he slept with Tsunade. He could feel her b.r.e.a.s.ts pressed against him and it was hard for him. He sighed and closed his eyes since he knew there would be a fight in this journey.
