Disclaimer- Not mine. I’m just borrowing them for a little while and will return them when I am finished.
Author’s Notes- This is the response to the kiss prompt “distracting kiss”. I struggled with this one. I originally went an entirely different direction (and complained to @violetflipflops a lot) until this idea popped into my head. The timing is also fitting with US Thanksgiving being this week.
Summary- Eleanor prepares Thanksgiving dinner for her loved ones.
“I know it’s easy to forget, but you’re not a commoner anymore, Eleanor, you don’t have to cook your own meals.” Olivia drawled, casting a disdainful look around the kitchen.
“I am aware of that,” I said dryly, “I’m doing this because I want to.”
It was American Thanksgiving and even though I was thousands of miles from the United States, I wanted to celebrate. So, I had decided to host my own Thanksgiving dinner in Liam and I’s quarters and had enlisted some help.
Speaking of… I shot Olivia a pointed look. “I thought you were supposed to be helping?”
“I’m here, aren’t I?” She asked, leaning against the castle, a glass of wine in her hand, “besides I brought wine. Lots of wine.”
I laughed and looked at the rest of my kitchen crew. Kiara was methodically assembling a green bean casserole while Hana was guiding Penelope through the process of peeling potatoes. The turkey was in the oven, the pies had been baked, and now it was just the final touches that had to be dealt with.
“Something smells good.” I heard the voice at the same time I felt the lips on my cheek. “You ladies have been hard at work.”
I turned to frown at Liam, who had entered the kitchen with Drake and Drake and Maxwell at his heels. “Yes and I’ve noticed that the three of you managed to skip out on helping with the cooking,” I said, raising an eyebrow. “I guess that means that you’re volunteering for clean-up.”
