"You're a terrible cook" Chat, to Marinette?
“Here, this should hopefully help you feel better,” Marinette said thrusting the bowl of steaming soup towards the pathetic figure huddled in a pile of blankets on her chaise.
“Thank you. You’re kindness is only rivaled by you…ACHOOOO!”
“Serves you right, you hopeless flirt,” Marinette laughed. Chat glowered at her, but reached his hands out from his nest for the bowl.
“Jeez, what is this lava?”
“It’s soup! It’s supposed to be served hot.”
“Hot, not fiery inferno.”
“Just shut up and eat your soup,” Marinette said fixing her grinning intruder with her best impression of her mother’s serious face.
“As you wish princess,” Chat grinned not looking the least bit penitent.
Marinette watched as he took a loud slurping sip of his soup. He said nothing his brow furrowing slightly.
“What?” Marinette asked, her shoulders hunching self consciously as Chat stared at her. He said nothing, his eyes narrowing further as he took another spoonful of the soup.
Marinette held her breath as he looked at her again, his head tilted to one side thoughtfully.
“You’re a terrible cook,” he said in an awed voice.
“I am not,” Marinette argued her face flushing.
“Did you try this soup?”
“Well no…” He held it out to her. “I’m not going to try it now,” Marinette sulked, you’re sick.”
“Probably for the best, I think you put the whole dead sea in this.”
“It’s really salty,” Chat said with a soft smile, taking another spoonful of the soup anyways.
“Well if you don’t want it you can give it back,” Marinette glowered, “I don’t see why you decided to come hang out at my place anyways.”
“No one is home,” Chat replied quietly.
“Oh,” Marinette replied not sure how to deal with the sudden change of tone, “well I guess bad soup is better than no soup.”
“Oh I could get soup,” Chat replied blithely his teasing smile coming back with a vengence, “top quality stuff too. That’s not the issue.”
“What is it then?” Marinette asked glaring at the smiling, if sniffling cat in annoyance, as he continued to down her sub par offering. “Since clearly you could be back home enjoying 5 star cuisine instead of suffering through my terrible attempt at cooking.”
“Well there are 3 reasons why I am here. One- I don’t like being alone when I am sick, I get moody. Two- While you are apparently a terrible cook, I know for a fact that you’re baking is excellent and I am hoping if I look pathetic enough that you will shower me with pastries,” he smirked.
“You’re ridiculous,” Marinette said rolling her eyes but unable to help the small grin that came to her lips. “So what’s the third reason?”
“Five star cuisine doesn’t compare to getting homemade soup from the prettiest girl in paris, I don’t care how salty it is,” Chat said, taking another deliberate spoonful.
Marinette flushed and turned away before he could see the brilliant smile that she couldn’t have held back if she tried.
