Well this was just delightful, wasn’t it?

It was lucky for Astrid that Penelope was sitting to her left. It meant she could actively side-eye her without looking like she was going cross-eyed. She’d heard of the game Penelope was playing, somehow, somewhere. Seen a couple videos or gifs of it online too. It didn’t interest her in the slightest, and if she had to be honest – and, given Astrid was Astrid, she did have to be honest – she couldn’t understand why it would interest anyone else.

Astrid leaned herself and her chair back, a sure-fire sign that she was about to start lecturing someone. For a moment though, she reconsidered. She’d just gotten done with a pointless argument that went absolutely nowhere. She didn’t exactly want to get into another one so soon, especially not over a subject she hardly cared about.

On the other hand, she didn’t have much of an alternative. Astrid realised this as she looked down at her tray. Just eating this… mockery of meat was bad enough, but if she was gonna focus on it and nothing else, then she might just scream. So it was either potentially getting into a pointless argument or eating what might as well be pure, unfiltered garbage.

Great. It was only lunchtime and she was already stuck between a rock and a hard place.

Well, one was less unpleasant than the other. Besides, if worst came to the worst, Astrid could always claim she was just stating her opinion. After all, technically that was true. She carved off a piece of ‘beef’, under some sort of impression that doing both things would cancel each other out through sheer awfulness, chewed it for far longer than should have been necessary, before opening her mouth to speak.

“Y’know, I think I’ve heard of that game.”

Astrid swallowed the slice of beef, pulling a face, before continuing. How did it get to be simultaneously tough and slimy?

“Yeah, I think my cousin plays it, or something. Got something to do with animals and collecting fruit, right? And you’re saying there’s no real win conditions?”

Astrid looked down at her plate, wrestling with her piece of beef, feeling like she was trying to chisel Excalibur out of the stone with her knife and fork.

“Seems like a big waste of time, if you ask me.”
