asterias asked: Close your eyes and take a bite. Slowly savor it. What does the paopu fruit taste like? What does it make you think of? How does it make you feel?

ORBS of vermillion and blue submerged THEMSELVES in the darkness of JADED LIDS, parting thin lips to CONSUME the paopu at his own BEHEST. Pearlescent teeth met the FIRM SHELL of the fruit, sinking DEEP to sever one FRAGMENT from the rest of the exotic STAR. To an ordinary human, the PAOPU wasn’t dissimilar to a MELON or a PEAR in texture: yet POSSESSED the characteristically sharp sweetness of CITRUS. Cooling nectar was EXPELLED with every chew, the king SLOW to swallow his initial BITE.
To the VERUM REX however... such an organic experience was HARD to come by. BORN and RAISED upon a space colony ark, FRUIT of any natural occurrence was NOTHING more than a fable. The TRADITIONS of paopu fruit, an even RARER MYTH. Each bite and swallow of this MYSTICAL FRUIT fed more than just his stomach, but his SOUL: star-shaped sustenance resonating with his star-fuelled heart.
If FATE had a taste, THIS was certainly it.
