I'll try to speed things up, though
Fri Oct 6, 2017 20:55

Sometimes Ruben asked questions and Kaye didn’t know what to do with them. There was a slight language barrier between them, which led to misunderstandings and hilarity. They both spoke two-ish languages, so sometimes they would speak in the wrong language just to mess with the other. This wasn’t one of those times, though, and how was she supposed explain something that had a name describing what it was?

“…It’s a bread bowl,” she stared at him like there was no way he could not understand this, “It’s a bowl made out of bread. You put soup in bowls, so… the bread is basically a bowl. Bread bowl.”

She explained while he paid, which she definitely let happen. Food always tasted better when it was free. It was why food in the Finer Diner tasted so great and why she loved when people paid for her. She left her wallet in Aquila, anyway, and it was Ruben’s idea to come out into the cold. He better pay.

She grabbed the receipts and moved over to the waiting area, leading Ruben along if he didn’t get with the program. After their numbers were called, Kaye found the best spot in the restaurant by staring down two young Muggles. She placed her food on the table and plopped down into the big comfy armchair, throwing her legs over one side, and sighed happily. She would’ve picked a seat anyway, even if Ruben wanted to pick, because this seat was next to a warm fireplace and she refused to be cold.

“So what’s wrong with you?” Kaye asked casually, looking Ruben up and down. “It’s the second day of school, dude. You should spend some time in a hospital; you’ll appreciate all the things Rocky Mountain International has to offer. I mean, it’s still boring, but… nuanced.” She grinned and sipped her drink before swinging her legs back to the ground, leaning over the table, and digging into her food.

  • I'm fine to wait a little - Ruben, Sat Sep 30 20:26
    Kaye immediately bolted at the mention of food. Well, not bolted intentionally away from him, but bolted in the direction of food, he assumed. He couldn’t hold back a laugh, hastily turning to follow ... more

      • Kaye looked at him like he was an idiot, and Ruben made a face right back, two of her briefly flashing in front of him when his eyes crossed over. "I am not stupid. I know what bread is, and bowls.... more
        • Don't tell me what to do! - Kaye, Mon Oct 16 19:24
          “It’s not weird. Squash soup is weird, but bread bowls aren’t weird.” Kaye took the lid of her bowl, which was just more bread, and dipped it in Ruben’s soup. She’d never actually had squash soup, so ... more
          • Well you don't have to listen! - Ruben, Tue Oct 17 21:10
            The expression on Kaye’s face when she tasted his soup made him crack up, a loud laugh bursting out. It was a good thing that he’d already swallowed his most recent faceful of bread, because... more
            • I don't have to do anything! - Kaye, Sun Oct 22 10:15
              “Have you ever considered that you’re the one with a poor sense of taste?” Kaye responded without a pause, “You’re the one who slept with Carrot Top, after all.” She’d never understood the red-head’s ... more
              • Oh good, so we're in agreement - Ruben, Sun Oct 22 17:18
                Ruben snorted into his coffee. “Ouch.” Poor Marissa. She was nice, but not in an unbearable way, and had a damn fine body, and yet somehow she’d wound up on Kaye’s bad side. Or maybe those reasons he ... more
                • Not sure I agree with that. - Kaye, Thu Oct 26 21:37
                  Oh, son of a Banshee. Kaye couldn’t remember when she started having a crush on Ruben. The first time they met, on Pearl Street, there had been some hard core flirting. It was actually a very similar ... more
                  • Whoops, that piece of bread seemed to have been the last finger in the dam. Ruben blinked once at the bread bowl, observing the quantity of soup now beginning to rush out of the side where his hungry ... more
                    • Kaye desperately wanted to reach over and knock the bread out of Ruben’s hand. She hated being confused. She hated not being the one in the know. Not knowing how her own feelings were working right... more
                      • Impossible - Ruben, Sun Oct 29 22:26
                        Kaye stopped glaring at him after his apology. He didn’t really mind either way (glaring was not an unwelcome behaviour to the Swede) but it was good to know that she’d been listening and took him... more
                        • Don't you mean "I'm Possible" - Kaye, Tue Oct 31 20:39
                          Of course, that was the part he took hold of. Kaye rolled her eyes and waved her hand, as if trying to dismiss it. Her not being kissed before probably wasn’t a big deal. She was probably the only... more
