She has no scruples when it comes to people she admires, and she is willing to indulge anything they wish to do. She'd even help an object of her devotion to cover up their crimes.
Black pudding is said to be one of the earliest dishes made by man. Black pudding isn't actually pudding at all, but rather a sausage processed from animal blood, meat, fat, oats and bread. It is a traditional Celtic food often enjoyed at breakfast with a variety of other foods.

My shoes made a crisp sound against the floor, there is a irony smell in the air, and the dark hallway is somewhat cold.
I’m holding a plate and now I am at the special sick room.
Lightly, I knocked on the door and gently opened it. In the dark room is a white sickbed.
The fragile woman was strapped on the bed, near me. She felt something, and she shrank into the bed. “You don’t come near me! Don’t come over! Don’t come over ahhhhhh!”
She can’t control what is going on, letting herself go crazy. I ignored her behaviour, turning over to the Master she has awaken.
“Master Attendant, why don’t you get some rest? You only got two hours of sleep yesterday.” “It’s okay, Black Pudding. Did you bring what I want?” “Yes.”
I put my plate on a nearby table, and Master Attendant picked up the plate and examined the drugs and medicine carefully.
I look at the black bags under Master Attendant’s eyes, worried. Master Attendant haven’t slept well in a month for the research.
Master Attendant gently unstrapped the woman, and lifted her off the bed. The oxygen was squeezed out of the syringe, and the red liquid was injected into the woman’s body.
The woman didn’t know that Master Attendant’s creation was saving her, she only sat there screaming.
But the way that Master Attendant focuses on his research is enchanting.
On the first day of lessons with Master Attendant, I felt it, the guy that dresses himself up is different than the stupid humans. He is a Food Soul like me.
A Food Soul with strong powers feels satisfied hiding in the plain human world.
But like I noticed him, he will also notice me.
It's funny, but someone destined to save more people, often practice on innocent animals so that they can save more people.
Every anatomy class, when the surgery knife breaks the skin, the beautiful fresh red flesh overflows. Before the animals' lives end, their eyes are always filled with despair, hopelessness.
Only in that moment, the human with the surgery knife holds the power of the life and death of the animal. When the sharp knife cuts into them, their ugly expression will show their true self.
When I deal with the remains that Master Attendant left, I saw the guy standing close by.
He looks at me with warning. I don't know why, I understood it.
Share a little with him? No medicine can save this guy with the humans.
I don't believe the version of him we are seeing right now is the real him.
At the academy, the repetitive boring days are making me suffocate. Everyone talks insincerely in a hypocritical way.
The time that humans live are shorter than Food Souls by too much.
Master Attendant is now a youth, at the graduation ceremony the guy in the white coat did not have a slight trace of aging.
Master Attendant graduated with the top marks, and borrowed money from the family, and started a little hospital.
Master Attendant works on every patient personally, taking great care in researching each patient’s disease, saying no to money to poor patients. Everybody that’s been cured gratefully thanks him.
This turned Master Attendant’s gentle smile bright. He locked his goal to save everyone, cure all diseases. That’s is not an easy goal. Or should I say, a goal destined to failure.
So when he wasn’t able to cure the infected woman, his world shattered.
Countless days and nights, numerous torn books, all of this, and still no cure. All of this, for a woman with a sickly white face that wants blood. But still, nothing.
This is a rare disease, the poison in the blood with make the victim thirsty for blood, Master Attendant spent countless days and nights, but no way to keep her alive.
Everyone told Master Attendant that it wasn’t his fault, but I saw Master Attendant’s eyes change. To curiosity.
He tried travelling to find other diseases to study to find a cure, but this disease is too rare. The disease makes the victim want to die than to wait for Master Attendant to find a cure.
Master Attendant has no more patients with similar diseases to study. He turns his gaze from the tube of blood to the blood of the original patient, with scorpion viruses blood.
Lost in the trash can, the bodies of the little white mice tells me that the disease can spread though blood.
I look at Master Attendant’s face with uncovered craziness, the darkness in his eyes also make me excited.
In the face of Master Attendant, the person that showed everything to me, I saw embarrassment for the first time. This is my Master Attendant, the person I want to serve.
Under the white is where the black is hidden.
Under his orders, I found the homeless people that disappeared, and took them to the basement where all the stray stuff is.
In the group is the person that helped us set up the basement. I still remember the day when he smiled and said to us: “Mister, you really are the saviour that God sent down! If it not for you many of us already would have died because of illness! Is then when the patients in the hospital can’t live? Don’t worry! I am quick, I will clean it for you!” “We won’t forget what you helped us do.”
Saving lives come at expenses of other lives. We won’t let you down.
The ending was more sudden than I thought I would be.
When Master Attendant started the research, he didn’t want to come out of the closed doors, also when it started those people died quickly of the serious disease.
The lack of experimentation material will cause a stop in the research. There are fewer and fewer homeless people in the hospital. To ensure Master Attendant doesn’t stop researching steadily, I must find more materials.
Fortunately, there are not many humans that pursue appearances. I don’t need to do much to send the humans that are willing to walk into Master Attendant’s trap.
The hospital used to be the most glorious place, until the manager stopping caring. Who knows when, before the hospital was the place everyone leaned on, is now the most unbelievable place.
But this ruin has giving Master Attendant a very good researching environment. Because no one would hear the ear-splitting screams they let out, and when I bury I don’t have to walk around anything.
I received an anonymous letter, that tells me to leave the hospital with Master Attendant as soon as possible. Back then I didn’t really care about the letter. It was just a few humans and their arrival means more materials for Master Attendant.
This self-efficiency brought me consequences I regret very much.
When Holy See attacked the hospital with a flag to keep evil away, the secret doors I have carefully made is now fallen. Just a simple sneak attack is enough. All the people that have come, is gone.
Until two Food Souls come in.
One of them, is the boring guy at the medical school.
The person beside him with the Holy Father’s getup rushes in to save Master Attendant. Before he left, I heard him call the Holy Father Weisswurst.
I want to block the guy running in front of me, but Weisswurst stood in front of me, blocking my way.
“End it. Pretzel will not have mercy. Don’t do what you’re thinking.”
I raised my head, and looking at him without blinking, I furiously how I should get out of this and rescue my Master Attendant.
“I will not let you go. As Food Souls, we are supposed to help our Master Attendant help humans! But you and your Master Attendant have made a grave mistake! It’s my fault, and I will not let you go!”
Last thing I saw was that the man attacked with anger, and the contract from the depths of the soul was interrupted by the horror.
VI. Black Pudding
When Black Pudding woke up, she saw a pair of clean and beautiful eyes looking at her. The owner of the eyes blinked delicately and ran out of the room.
“Spaghetti, Spaghetti! She’s awake!”
With the yell, a red-haired man was pulled to the bedside by the young girl. She looked up and blinked, as if waiting for something.
Spaghetti raised his hand helplessly and patted Stargazey Pie’s head. Stargazey Pie nodded with satisfaction and skipped out of the room.
Left alone, Spaghetti looked at Black Pudding lying on the bed watchfully looking at him. Laughing, he pulled a chair and sat down.
He sat up against the chair and raised an eyebrow. With a bit of playfulness, he took a strand of Black Pudding’s hair and began playing with it.
“Why didn’t you listen when I told you to leave? Didn’t I tell you?”
“You wrote the letter?”
“Of course. I was also the one that came to save you. But I arrived to late so I was only able to save you.”
“What is your goal?”
“Why do you ask?”
“Don’t tell me it’s only because you have a good heart.”
“You will know in the future. Rest your body for now.”
At the end, Stargazey Pie revealed Spaghetti’s plan, he needed Food Soul power.
Black Pudding doesn’t mind the man using her like this, because she knew she could get something back from Spaghetti.
Like, the innocent, cute girl in front of her. She is looking for the real her, keeping her innocence but showing her cruelty.
But, it’s not enough... Just a little more grinding, and this beautiful red gem will bloom brighter than Master Attendant. Yes, just like when she was grinding with Master Attendant.
Black Pudding put the cup of black tea in front of Stargazey Pie, suddenly remembering that she forgot to bring the cookies she baked. When she returned to the garden once more, Spaghetti was standing at the entrance of the garden.
Spaghetti had no plan to go into the garden to drink tea with Stargazey Pie, he took from the plate of Black Pudding’s cookies and stuffed one in his mouth.
“Doesn’t taste bad.” “What do you want?”
“How you want to induce Stargazey Pie is your thing, but don’t bother my plan.” “What are you saying?” “You know better than anyone what I am saying. You have a criminal record, don’t you?”
Black Pudding looked at the old syringe Spaghetti slid onto the plate. He pushed his hair back and laughed softly.
“Don’t worry, the results won’t disappoint you.”
“Then I will wait and see.”
At the headquarters of the Holy See, Weisswurst is looking for information on the medicine he needs in the library. When he walked out of the bookshelves, he found Candy Cane and Fish and Chips at a table studying something.
“What are you two reading?”
Fish and Chips looked at Weisswurst suspiciously and handed the information paragraph to Weisswurst.
“Weisswurst! This was what you were studying! The doctor who was researching porphyria! But why is there no cure to this condition..”
“Porphyria, from the beginning is a Food Soul, to convince their Master Attendant to falling into this dark nightmare, the Food Soul must be eliminated. Why do you ask this?”
Fish and Chips and Candy Cane looked at Weisswurst, and their faces fell. They hesitated to tell him.“In a village in Nevras, several villagers recently have been discovered to be addicted to blood. Symptoms showed that it’s... porphyria.”
