Fennel soup. (yes, Quoque says fannel instead).
The knowledge of Fennel as an aphrodisiac comes from the Egyptian tradition... it was not as common in Europe though (if you consider Shakespeare he mentions potatoes as aphrodisiac - Flastaff does - but fennel is used as symbol of flattery, in Hamlet).
Is it really and aphrodisiac? It contains something similar to estrogen for sure but you'd have to eat a loooot of it to even feel something... is my guess.
That's how I feel about the thing... because I consume fennel in huge quantities and it never did anything to me, just like chocolate, but making me feel full and slightly happy because I love its taste and it helps me go n.2!
So what was this soup, and why is it making everybody feel weird?
One thing we know... according to the doctor: it's very spicy.
Food in the hot areas of the World is spicier than in the North. Let me tell you, in general (it's not a rule) people who comes from a Country where the food is not spicy, don't take spicy very well. I don't. You need to be raised with spicy food in order to feel it as "normal".
From Cat we know that it makes people run... probably to the bathroom (it does helps go n.2, after all).
From Callista we know that it makes you go all weird, then pass out.
One more clue will come from the pages I will release next.
I will send you hunting... you'll notice little hearts here and there behind the characters... can you figure out where they come from and who is producing them.
That's what Rose is looking at.
