Bertholdt has never liked
He and Reiner have been dating
for over a year now, but after last year’s fiasco—a panic attack in the fancy
restaurant Reiner had reserved a table at months in advance, an allergic
reaction to the flowers Reiner had picked out especially, and, finally, a late
night admission that Bertholdt just didn’t like Valentine’s Day—Reiner had agreed to forget about splashing
out on chocolates and fairy lights and rose petals and just spend the evening
on their ratty sofa drinking beer and playing Mario Kart.
So why Bertholdt now finds
himself preparing his mother’s infamous Rindsrouladen
recipe even though he can’t decipher her writing and his German is lousy,
he simply doesn’t know.
