Re: The Howling Red Household
As you step into your house, you can smell something nice cooking.

"Wow, that smells good!" said Carpaccio.  He wandered towards the kitchen in the hopes of grabbing an appetizer or three.

"Hold up there, young man," your father said. "How'd it go with the prinnies?"

"Generally all right," said Carpaccio.  "There was a weird bug in the field, though.  It spat fire at me, but I drove it off."

"...yes?" said Carpaccio.  "It ran off into a portal, so we should probably keep an eye out for more like it."

"That's really unusual, what did you do after that?" your father asked.

Carpaccio shrugged.

"The portal vanished.  No more bug.  I came back."

"Might be worth letting Mannah and Ambrosia know about it," your dad said.

"I'm sure it can wait until after dinner," your father said. "It's probably almost ready, right dear?"

Your mother poked her head out of the kitchen.

"Yes, but you two have to set the table."

"Sure," said Carpaccio, and he set to work.  Food was coming soon!  Anything to speed that up!

Once you're finished, your mother brings out a large pot of stew and dumplings.

"Let's dig in," she said.

Carpaccio, as had been intimated, ate like a hero.  Who was also a wolf.  With an appetite to match.  Mere stew and dumplings, no matter how tasty, didn't have a chance.

"What was that about a bug and prinnies?" your mother asked.

"I think your father has it right," your mother said. "And you can deliver that chocolate cake I made for them."

"All right," said Carpaccio.  "I'll leave as soon as I'm done eating!"

...This was a function of food supply and nothing else.  Heroes ate fast.  Wolves ate fast.  Do the math.

Re: The Howling Red Household
As the bowls pile higher and higher the stew level gets lower and lower until it's suddenly done.

When you get back, your parents were on the coach reading. They haven't noticed that you've come back.

"Uh, no, we were just reading, right, dear?" your father asked.

"Yes."
