Liu Ji had never eaten raw meat in his life before.

Having been raised in a typical Chinese family and accustomed to fully cooked food from school cafeterias, raw meat was a no-go for him. Even his steaks had to be well-done; medium-rare was simply out of the question for him.

Now faced with a chunk of raw bear meat in another world, Liu Ji wasn't about to start gnawing on it.

"Got it. But I've been meaning to ask." Mervant crossed his arms. "Are you maybe a tad too concerned about this mysterious potato man of unknown origins?"

"I've mentioned it before, we need a guide," said Yaine, frowning.
