Dialogue

(Approach Wanmin Restaurant)
Chongyun: ...This is bad. Chef Mao is not at the restaurant right now, and neither is Xiangling...
Chongyun: We'll have to wait till he returns... What do we do about the evil spirits?
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg If it's not too difficult, I can try to make some.
Chongyun: Oh, are you a good cook?
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg Making popsicles seems easy enough.
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg I often cook for myself when adventuring in the wilderness.
Chongyun: Then I'll leave it to you. Thanks for your help.
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg Do you know what ingredients we should use?
Chongyun: Uhh... I'm afraid all I know is that it requires water. But to imbue the effect that suppresses my yang energy, perhaps something special is required.
Chongyun: Like different plants, fruits, or herbs, for example.
Chongyun: Do you have any experience with such things?
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg Let's try Mist Flower and Qingxin.
(Go to A Cooling Mix)
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg Let's try Sunsettia and Valberries.
(Go to A Sweet Mix)
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg Let's try Jueyun Chili and Slime Condensate.
(Go to A Curious Mix)

A Cooling Mix

Icon Dialogue Talk.svg Let's try Mist Flower and Qingxin.
Chongyun: Oh, that sounds about right.
Chongyun: Coming up with the right ingredients off the top of your head like that... You most certainly are an experienced adventurer.

(Talk to Chongyun again)
Chongyun: Have you procured all the ingredients for the popsicles?
(Opens the submission menu)
The Travelers makes popsicles with the ingredients gathered...
Chongyun: Are they finished? Oh, they look exactly like the ones Chef Mao makes for me.
Chongyun: Let me try one.
Chongyun: *licks popsicle* Mmmm, yes...
Chongyun: ...Good, this is the right feeling. I can sense the energy calming down within me.
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg These should help you keep control.
Chongyun: Thank you, Traveler, now I have lots of popsicles. Your skills are amazing!
Chongyun: If I'd known you possess such skills, we could've made more for that kid and his family.
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg It'd have to be a lot more — I'm sure the kid would eat most of them and still be hungry.
Chongyun: Haha, right. But he mentioned his family is not well-off. I'd still like to help them if I can.
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg But what about your search for evil spirits?
Chongyun: Exorcism is my means of helping the people of Liyue live more peaceful and happy lives.
Chongyun: If that kid really needs my help, then helping him would just be different means to the same end.
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg I'll go with you.
Chongyun: Alright. I remember the kid mentioned that he was headed for Chihu Rock. Let's go find him.
(Continues with For A Child's Smile)

A Sweet Mix

Icon Dialogue Talk.svg Let's try Sunsettia and Valberries.
Chongyun: Hmm, those do sound refreshing, but the popsicles aren't sweet.
Chongyun: ...But in case you know something I don't, I'll trust your judgment.

The Travelers makes popsicles with the ingredients gathered...
Chongyun: Are they finished? Ahh... these look even tastier than my original popsicles!
Chongyun: Let me try one.
Chongyun: *licks popsicle* Mmmm, yes...
Chongyun: It tastes fruity and sweet... It's delicious!
Chongyun: But I'm afraid it's not as effective at suppressing my yang energy as Chef Mao's popsicles.
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg I thought just any popsicles would do.
Chongyun: Sadly not, but in any case, these should be good enough for now.
Chongyun: These popsicles really are delicious... I bet that kid we met earlier would be thrilled to taste this flavor.
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg It'd have to be a lot more — I'm sure the kid would eat most of them and still be hungry.
Chongyun: Haha, right. But he mentioned his family is not well-off. I'd still like to help them if I can.

A Curious Mix

Icon Dialogue Talk.svg Let's try Jueyun Chili and Slime Condensate.
Chongyun: Uh, that sounds a little... dangerous.
Chongyun: But as the saying goes, "fight fire with fire." I trust your judgment.

Chongyun: Is it finished? Oh... the color seems to be off...
Chongyun: Let me try one.
Chongyun: O—OKay... here it goes.
Chongyun: *licks popsicle* U—Ugh...
Chongyun: It's so spicy! ...My throat is on fire!
Chongyun: ...No, no — this is not good!
