spanish food time

Spice

Prompt: Lafayette x reader where the reader is taking Lafayette to try Spanish food for the first time.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You dragged your best friend Lafayette down the road.

“C'mon Laf!” You whined. “It’s only Spanish food!” You had been trying to convince your French friend to try some Spanish from your Uncle’s restaurant for weeks and today he had finally agreed, although he still needed some coaxing.

“But Spanish food is spicy,” Lafayette complained. “I don’t do spicy.” You rolled your eyes, stood on your tip toes, to match his height, and grabbed his ear.

“Let’s go Frenchie,” You commanded with new force, and dragged the man down the street. “You’re trying this food whether you want to not, I’m not afraid to shove it down your throat if I have to.” Laf shot you a frightened look and complied.

Before long the two of you were seated at your Uncle’s restaurant, about to order.

“Hello Y/N!” Your cousin cheerily greeted you and glanced at Lafayette. “And who is this handsome man?” You laughed and pointed at Laf.

“This is my friend Lafayette,” You said. “Laf, this is my cousin Rosalina.”

"But you can just call me Rosie.” She interjected.

“Okay, bonjour Rosie.” He flashed a dazzling smile.

"Oh! And he’s French!” She swooned. “He’s just a friend?” She raised a doubtful eyebrow.

"Just a friend.” You assured her, although you wished it were more. You have liked Lafayette for months and have never gotten the guts to confess.

“Y/N you gotta up your game girl!” She punched your shoulder lightly.

“Oh shut up, aren’t you supposed to be serving us anyway?” You pointed to her waitress outfit and nametag.

“Oh right!” She laughed, obviously having forgotten. “What’ll you guys be having?” You smiled mischievously.

“Tio’s Specialty.” You said, Rosie smiled devilishly back at you.

“First time trying Spanish I’m guessing?”

“Yep, going to start him off with something light.” You said innocently. In reality that was the most spicy thing on the menu but Lafayette didn’t need to know that.

“Alrighty then. I’ll be back soon with your order!” Rosie chirped happily and smiled at Lafayette who was oblivious to your scheming.

Minutes later Rosie reappeared with a steaming dish.

“Here you are guys.” She placed the plate on the table. “Enjoy!” She walked away.

“Okay Laf, you ready? This is the least spicy menu item I could find so you should be fine.” You “reassured” Lafayette. He nodded and took a bite. At first he seemed fine but then the seeds kicked in.

Shock and pain covered his face as he quickly grabbed the nearest glass of water.

“Water only makes it worse,” You told him nonchalantly. He realized his mistake too late and swallowed his gulp of water.

“What?” He breathed out in a gasp.

“Oh yeah, the water makes the spice in the seeds spread.” You replied, still acting uninterested while hiding bursts of laughter.

“And this is the LEAST spicy item you have?!” He gasp yelled, which sounded sort of like wheezing.

"Did I not mention?” You feigned innocence. “This is the SPICIEST item silly!” You laughed.

“Y/N!” He cried. “But my mouth is on fire!” You fanned his face.

“Oh you poor baby,” You said sarcastically. “Want me to kiss it better?” Laf turned a shade redder and nodded slightly.

“Oui.” He seemed to sink into himself. You were convinced that this man was going to be the death of you. Gathering your courage you leaned in and pressed your lips to his. They seemed to fit together perfectly and you held it there probably longer than you should have. You pulled back, now your turn to blush.

“I’m sorry, that was-” You were cut off.

“Nice, very nice.” Lafayette finished for you, smiling slightly. “Would you like to do it again?” You blushed harder.

“Okay.” This time Laf leaned in and put his hand on your cheek, pulling him to you. His touch was soft and your lips moved with his. It was bliss. When he pulled away he was grinning from ear to ear.

“I’ve been wanting to do that forever.” He admitted shyly, that took you by surprise.

“Wow, same here.” You replied, also quite shy. Lafayette laughed.

“Well now I guess I got the courage. Y/N, do you want to go out with me?” You grinned and nodded. Lafayette leaned in for another kiss.

“Damn it Y/N!” Rosie yelled from where she was supposed to clearing tables but had actually been spying on the two of you. “Now he’s taken.” You all laughed.

He was taken and he was all yours.
