"B-But Dear, I haven't any experience with cooking!"
"So you anticipate loss?"
"That isn't what I said at all! Dear, prepare to lose~!"
The woman recalled the short conversation, just before the two engaged in the small war on the board. The game was chess, and the blonde that walked along the street knew deep down that she wasn't going to beat her darling, but the sheer amount of infatuation brought her to play, and now she was stuck in a predicament. She'd either upset her master and darling husband-to-be (although her master never agreed to this, the blonde just assumed so) by not cooking dinner, or to possibly give them food poisoning, or even kill them! She had no idea what to do, whatsoever.
The woman was the Queen, one of six living immortal chess pieces that belonged to the Dream-Make Mage Alex Hata. She was infatuated with the mage, even to the point of not exactly taking the hint that Alex wasn't into women. She'd do anything to be with her dear Alex, her king... And that also included cooking. Her strengths and weaknesses in the cooking arts mean nothing, she would do it regardless. Besides, they did have a bet.
The Queen lost in 2 turns, having not seen the obvious "Fool's Mate" coming. This caught Alex a little off guard that her most powerful spell and smartest of the pieces just fell for such a basic trap, but regardless she lost the game and the bet alike. So, she now walked through the streets of Rose Garden with no one else, her elegant dress and queenly attire definitely standing out amongst the crowd, which earned the Queen many looks. Looks that she would be used to, and just ignoring at this point. These were the commoners after all.
"Alright... What do I want to cook... What should I cook!? Oh no, my dear didn't tell me what he wanted for dinner!"
The Queen took a gloved hand and put it to her temples, then continued walking along through a now growing crowd of people as she entered a small shopping district. There were stalls that had various different foods there, and the Queen walked while staring at each of them. None of these looked familiar, and the Queen couldn't even name the most basic of them all like Rice or Apples. She never ate, and never studied cooking, and was never taught to cook. She was an immortal chess piece, and cooking and eating weren't on her top list of priorities.
"What if one of these commoners could teach me a thing or two... What's this?"
The woman grabbed a lemon from a man who just simply let her take it, and stared at it oddly. Then, not knowing the consequences, bit into it, earning the gazes of everyone around her as she spat out the sour and bitter fruit with a few coughs, looking disgusted during the meantime. This gave the Queen the set off that she needed. Soon, dark energy began to resonate around her, as her blade was unsheathed a wave of darkness released, causing the people around the Queen to all gasp or scream. Then, just as the blade was inches from leaving the sheathe, a large surge of what felt like electricity went through the Queen's body, stooping her down and causing her to pant. That was right, Alex didn't have enough strength to sustain the Queen's combat body, so she couldn't use any abilities, or even unsheathe her sword. Every time she did the bond between Alex and the Queen bent a little, and pain surged through her body. So, finding this an inadequate solution, the Queen stood back up, and declared to the people - seeing as she had their potential.
"One of you common folk. Come forth. You are to be my teacher. I don't care which it is, as long as you are at least halfwitted. Come on now, I demand it, lest I level this whole district!"
