“Oh, yeah, right.” Beth said with an embarrassed smile. She opened the door, letting Aster in and walking towards the kitchen. “Okay, first step in this little cooking lesson: ingredients!” Beth said with a grin, “You have five minutes to find the pancake dough, butter, milk, and chocolate. Now go, go, go!”
“What the hell? That’s so unfair!” He declared but darted to the fridge anyway. He yanked open the door and grabbed butter and milk. “Where the hell is pancake dough?” He demanded, though he was laughing.
Beth laughed and sat on top of the counter, watching Aster with a goofy grin as he ran around the kitchen, desperately looking for the ingredients. She looked down at her watch and said, “Three minutes left!”
“This is unfair! You haven’t-” He opened a cupboard and grabbed the pancake dough. “Chocolate… Chocolate..” He opened the fridge again and moved some stuff. “Found it! Done!” The teen declared.
“Well done, grasshopper.” Beth said with a slight giggle, hopping off of the counter and getting a bowl, some measuring cups and spoons, and a big spoon to mix.
After showing Aster the measurements and pouring it all into the bowl, she gave him the spoon and said, “And now, mix.”
“I’m not your servant - you’re supposed to show me!” He teased but he mixed anyway. Not sure what it was supposed to look like so he looked over at her and showed her the bowl.
Beth looked at the bowl and shook her head, “You’re mixing it wrong.” She went over to stand in front of him, and put her arms over his, grabbing his hands. She put one hand to hold the side of the bowl while she guided the other hand to mix correctly.
“See? Like that.” She said, looking up at Aster.
"I can’t believe I was mixing it wrong." He pouted and kissed her on the nose. "Why don’t you just do it while controlling my arms - I kind of like this." The teen teased and grinned at her.
