“Your mother just does not like me, Eddie! There is no she ever will! She’s heard all of the rumours about me and she will never be able to forget them. Even if they’re not true, she is still going to hold them against me!”
Y/N knew this to be true. The first day she had met Mrs K, Y/N was forced to leave the Kaspbrak residence as Mrs K didn’t want someone ‘so dirty and impure’ around her son.
“Mom, this is Y/N! Isn’t she gorgeous!” Eddie boasted with glee to his mother. He really wanted her to give her approval of Y/N and her relationship with Eddie, however she gave the complete opposite.
“Y/N… as in Y/N L/N?” She asked angling her head and narrowing her eyes as she leered in Y/N’s direction.
“Yep!” Eddie said with a cheery smile on his face. Oh if he only knew how the next few minutes would pan out.
“Oh, no, Eddie. Sweetie, you can’t hang out with her. I’m sorry but I think you need to leave, Y/N.”
Eddies face fell as well as his jaw. He was surprised it didn’t fall off.
“W-what do you mean, Mom?”
“You know what I mean, Eddie-bear. Y/N, I’ve heard all about you and what you’ve done with that Bowers boy. I don’t want you near my son. You are a dirty and impure girl and I will not have you poisoning my little Eddie. Please leave.”
And so she did. That didn’t stop Y/N and Eddie from hanging out. But there was something always bothering Eds. He really wanted his Mom to like Y/N and would do anything for the two to get along well.
“Well, Y/N, we’ll just have to make her like you! Yes! We’ll do it slowly! Little by little! And she will like you, how could she not!”
The only reason Y/N agreed to try was because, well, she loved Eddie and wanted to help get him out of his funk.
Over the next couple of weeks, Eddie and Y/N did everything they could to get Mrs K to warm up to the idea of her son and Y/N dating.
They had tidied up the house, cut the grass, bought fresh flowers, cooked them all tea and today, they were baking cakes!
“C'mon, Eddie, we have to focus! Your mum will be home in thirty minutes! We need to put the cakes in now!” Y/N told her distracted boyfriend.
And with that, Eddie needed no more reminders. He put his oven glove on and picked up the tray, placing it in the oven and setting the timer.
Deep down, they were both beginning to think she would never like the girl Eddie treasured so deeply, but neither were willing to admit it. Hopefully, this would be the cherry on top of the very persistent cake.
“Eddie dear, I’m Home!” Mrs K shouted lovingly as she entered the house.
“Did you finish your- Oh, you’re here.” She said after seeing Y/N sitting in her kitchen alongside her son.
If Mrs K were telling the truth, she’d admit she quite liked Y/N, but due to her initial reaction, she couldn’t change her opinion because that would mean she was wrong. That was something she didn’t think she could admit.
“Look, mom! We made you cakes! It was Y/N’s idea!”
Truth be told, it wasn’t, but Eddie would’ve said anything to his Mom if it meant she’d warm up to his girlfriend.
“Chocolate! Eddie said it was your favourite!” Y/N said taking the cake tier up to his, stubborn, mother.
Mrs K took one off and took a bite as Y/N and Eds stood anxiously.
“What do you think, Mom?”
“They’re delicious.” She reluctantly admitted.
“No, I mean of Y/N, Mom. Seeing as we tidied the house, cut the grass, bought flowers for the new vase, made tea the other week and now, made you chocolate cakes!” Eddie rambled on, secretly hoping Y/N or his mother would cut him off. “Isn’t she lovely?” He pressed.
Mrs K allowed a small smile to spread across her face, “Yes, I suppose she is.”
Eddie and Y/N had earned her approval, little by little.
