Ok I can do this…
“Remind me. Why are we doing this again?” asked his friend measuring the flour. “We are doing this because she loves it'' He glared at his best friend. “ You can order it you know” his best friend sighed into the fridge, searching for a milk carton. “ come on dude it’s not that tough it’s chemistry” he said. “ Oh yeah, now you know why I took commerce” his best friend said.
He has to do this. This was how their relationship started. They met each other at their mutual friend's birthday party. They shared this piece of cake because it was the final piece and it was her favorite cake. Velvety red like her cheeks when she blushes, he smiled thinking. “ Is this frosting thing supposed to be hard to mix?” his friend asked, breaking him out of the thought.
“First of all, why is frosting brown in color?” he asked. "I don't know" "wait what flour did you use??" "I used that box which says 'flour' " his friend said, trying to mix it. He tried to pull the whisk out and the mixture just flew out of the blow to… "where did it go??" he asked his friend. And that's when that smell…
" Ok if all these are switched off what's burning?".....
"The oven!!!",They shouted in unison. One running towards the oven and other taking the fire extinguisher out.
"How do you use one of these!?!?" "What the- Pull the damn pin and squeeze the lever. What are you 10!?!?" " I am a commerce student i don't know these" "PUT OUT THE FIRE YOU DUMB SHIT!!"
This is a mess, He thought looking at the kitchen and themselves covered in foam. He took out...what was supposed to be the first tier of cake, burned out. "I thought you said you switched it off!!!" he asked. "I switched off all these knob... thingies
" THEY ARE USED TO SWITCH OFF THE STOVES!!!"
"I DON'T KNOW THAT I'M-"
"IF YOU SAY YOU'RE A-"
"what happened here?!" came another voice in the entrance of their kitchen. Shit. "hey babe" "hey dude". Oh god what am I gonna tell her, he looked at his friend who was equally panicked. "ahh..um well I" his friend stuttered, when something gooey fell on his face and they looked up. Ahh That's where that brown paste went,He thought "Welp, I'm gonna take off. my mom called me. you kids have fun!! bye" his friend ran out of their place. Oh I'm gonna make you pay for it you-
"Babe what the hell happened?!" she asked him bewildered. "uh-I - um - well you know-" god he cannot lie to her. "I tried to bake you your favourite Red velvet cake for our anniversary. I already cleaned our house and did the laundry and dishes...which are ruined… i was about to get some flowers and pick you up from your office surprise you and everything is shit now-" Is it hard to breathe? everything thing is ruined…
"Honey, listen to me, nothing is ruined-" "the KITCHEN IS!!!" "well it kind of, but its okay now, breathe" she said, holding his hands and trying to control her laugh. "come on! it makes it even worse when you laugh" he whined. "Ok ok sorry, its kind of-""dumb""no funny and adorable", she said, with so much laughter and fondness in her eyes.
"I thought i would try and make you more happy. i don't spend a lot of time with you. My works hectic and I'm always travelling. You deserve better babe. Not someone who couldn't cook or give you great present and surprise for anniversary." he said in small voice.
"Babe do you not see it, I am happy. You are all I need to be happy. This gesture makes me happy. Everyone knows, I know you are bad at cooking. But babe, i don't love you inspite of it. I love you for it. Your flaws are the ones which make you who you are. I love you for who you are" she smiled, kissing him all over his face.
"Ok now I'm gonna make my sad Boyfriend happy", she said and took out her phone. Their favourite song played from her phone and she brought him to the hall. They just started swaying to the music, drowning in each other's eyes.
Happy Anniversary honey...❤️
