Notes: Not what I was intending to write, but never mind eh? Birthday prompt from 2010 - not forgotten, just waiting for the right time. *g*

Heat radiated steaming tendrils from the bowl. The pale, mashed contents looked uninteresting but looks weren’t everything. Ignoring the temperature he piled a spoonful into his mouth and—
Choked. “The hell?”
“What?” Beside him a pilot turned, wide-eyed. “Something wrong?”
Chime gestured, grimacing; a curious spoonful vanished into the pilot’s mouth. “...That’s disgusting.”
From the serving hatch, DellaRosa’s laugh filled the canteen. Silence fell, as did several stares - including DellaRosa’s - on the furious Chime.
He’d told everyone.
“You bit off more than you could chew there,” the pilot laughed.
Chime glowered at his meal, and ate it anyway.

Hahaha! Poor Chime! Very curious to know what DellaRosa left out now. Or... added in? Nicely done :D

The 'food' is basically a mash of important nutrients for the pilots, flavoured so it doesn't taste of... mashed nutrients. *lol* DellaRosa just conveniently 'forgot' to add the flavouring to Chime's. ;) I think it probably tastes like wet cardboard without it.

Oh, Chime. Although I wonder what DellaRosa added there--the way you described the food, though, sounds kinda...yeah. :P Nice work :)

Haha, he ... 'forgot' to add flavour to the mash. ;) I'm glad it sounds kinda... yeah though, it looks it in my head too. XD
