I can feel the flush of embarrassment as I laugh and come to put the rice on the island. 

"Summer, yeah, sorry." I say, stepping around the island to peer into the oven curiously.

"It's in the fridge," I smirk as I tilt my head toward her, holding the oven open long enough for her to peek before closing it again. "It's still got awhile, I think. Starting to smell better, though, yeah?"

"Ugh, yes," I say fondly, glancing towards the fridge before I stop to look back at him. 

"And I thought you were supposed to be the one fixing my dinner?" I tease, "Pretty sure that was the deal."

"I am," I whine as I take a sip from my glass. "You're my assistant - fetching things - because I'm so crippled. Obviously."

"Hmm," I tilt my head thoughtfully as I grab my glass of wine, wrinkling my nose crookedly as I shake my head. 

"No," I say with a shake of my head, smirking as I take a sip of my wine, "I came over to be wined and dined, not be put to work."

"Ugh, fine," I grumble, rolling my eyes - an exaggerated gesture since I've never actually seen someone do it. "I guess I can do that, if you insist," I sigh before smiling back at her as I put my wine down to start on the side dishes.

I grin as he makes a show of getting to work on the side dishes, and with my wine in hand, I wander out of the kitchen into the living room. 

"How do I set up this stereo, hmm?" I call back, peering at the stereo curiously, "I want to listen to a bit of music!"

"There's a handle on the side you have to crank up," I call as I empty the rice into a bowl to be rinsed. "Stations are on the left, or if you prefer, there are discs in the drawer underneath."

Humming, I step over to set my wine on a seatside table before going through the discs curiously, unable to recall which ones were his favorites and which were never mentioned. Settling on one, I insert it into the player - careful not to break anything - before cranking up the knob on the side and retrieving my wine to head back to the kitchen. 

"I didn't recognize any of them, so you'll have to tell me if I fucked up."

"They're all good," I smile, pausing to listen to the disc she'd chosen before I nod my approval. "One of these days, you'll have to show me what sort of music you like."

"Eh, I was never a big music girl." I say as I slide into my seat at the bar, twirling my wine slightly as I watch it move about in the glass, "Whatever played on the radios was usually good enough for me."

"That's terrible," I frown, shaking my head at her as I set up on the chopping block to start preparing the squash. "We'll have to fix that. Good music is the language of the heart. You need to really listen to something, find the thing that speaks to you. I swear, you won't regret it."

"I still listen to music," I laugh defensively, "I don't know anyone's name though, or any song names. I usually just have the stereo going in the apartment while I read or something. There's this one station that plays really sweet songs, but I couldn't tell you any of them."

"Ah, I suppose I understand that," I shrug as I make neat work of the squash before tossing it in a skillet with some olive oil. "There are a few discs in there that I really like, but I don't know the names of them and I haven't bothered to ask anyone."

"I'm pretty sure you get a bit of a pass for that," I grin as I watch him fondly, "This one's Daughter, though. If you were curious."

"Really?" I ask, cocking my head a bit as I listen more closely to the song. "Huh... I never would have guessed that was the name. I adore this song, though."

Humming, I take a drink of wine and nod as I try to listen to it more closely. It sounds lovely, but I haven't a clue what it's about. 

"It's very pretty, yeah." I say, absently picking at my nails once I've put the glass down. "So how longs everything got to cook? I'm starving."

"Fish should be finishing up as soon as the rice is finished," I respond as I start sifting through the spices in the cupboard for those that smell like they'll go best with the squash in the skillet.

"Hmph," I sigh as I fold my arms against the bar, resting my chin there as I continue to watch him. 

"I like watching you work," I say after a moment, "It's really methodical, how you do things."

"Is it?" I ask, catching myself as I neatly line up the jars of herbs beside the stove so I know which ones to use. I laugh at the realization, my cheeks warming a little as I straighten the line self-consciously. "Makes it easier to find things."

"No, it's good," I laugh, "I like it. Does kind of make me want to come in and move stuff around though."

"That's just cruel," I laugh as I begin uncapping the jars and carefully seasoning the squash, a wooden spoon in my other hand as I stir them around the skillet. "Next you'll be hiding my things around the house to see if I can find them."

"Who says I haven't already done that?" I smirk.

I narrow my eyes for a moment as I pause to consider that. "I knew I hadn't misplaced my brush!" I complain as I throw the end of a piece of squash in her direction. "Twat."

125 Re: Date Night on Tue Jan 17, 2017 3:53 am

I duck to the side to avoid the squash, laughing loudly as I slip out of the barstool to pick it up. 

"I didn't move your brush, have you lost it?" I gleam, tossing the squash up and catching it as I come into the kitchen to drop it in the trash before stepping up to see what he's doing.
