[b [#F78F18 It isn't fair to you because you don't remember me that much. You don't remember if you like me, if you see me as a friend, or even just some guy. People only really kiss when they're a couple..."]] he told her, seeing her move into the machine and looking really panicked. Maybe he shouldn't have let her in there.
She came out fine and they soon started decorating their cupcakes. It looked amazing with all of the frosting, but even better when Aether gave him the tools to do so. He finished taking a bite and then he saw his Ai move onto the table as well, relaxing with her AI as they licked the frosting.
Soren thought about the other flavors they could have and he liked her ideas. [b [#F78F18 "Oooh, that sounds really good. Well it's almost...Valentine's day...maybe we can have like a cinnamon one or a confetti one. Maybe cover it with hearts and stuff?"]] he thought, thinking about how they celebrated it here.
He didn't notice the cream on his cheek so he kept talking. He felt her poking his skin and when he looked back at her, he watched her lick it off and then lean in. What was she doing? Soren watched her lick it off his cheek, but he turned really red. He held his breath and then he heard her laugh. Was it a joke? Was she only teasing him? [b [#F78F18 "Oh....um...haha?"]] he tried to laugh and then he asked her. [b [#F78F18 "Wait what's so funny? I don't get it?"]] he asked and then he thought about advertising. [b [#F78F18 "We can make a video add about our shop and post it? It'll stream through the city in the ads and people will be able to see it and come see how it is"]] he suggested, thinking about where they could use a camera.
[b [#F78F18 "We'll need to film out shop, the cupcakes and maybe you can say something about it since it's Aether's sweets?"]]
[b "Why isn't it fair to me? I do..." ] She added, glancing at him and then glancing away shyly. He brought her to this strange machine and it did frighten her-being in a machines stomach. it was odd, and colder. She didn't know why but she was not a fan of closed spaces. It send her chills down her spine.
They went off to decorate cupcakes and Soren's-weren't too good at first. She let him take the bag with the decorating tool and it started to look good. She smiled and was glad they could do this together. They could make this work. Her AI popped up and he had to have a taste. Aether grinned and rested against the countertop [b "Yea! This will go great." ] Her Ai kept getting taste and he noticed hsi head was being rubbed and he looked like he really liked it, feeling pretty relaxed. He definitely remembered Soren.
Aether laughed and then nodded, [b "Four flavours. One vanilla, one chocolate, one red velvet and um...um...hmmm what would be the forth? We'll figure it out..." ] She sighed and looked at Soren [b "What season is in this world? Maybe we can base it off the nearest holiday or just season." ] She figured taht would a good idea. She was glad to hear he thought they would love it. She turned her head away and then did a double take. There was...cream on his cheek. Did he notice? It didn't look like it.
She leaned in and poked his cheek, trying to take it off, and got some of it off, but not entirely. It looked good... So, she tried to lick it off her finger, but there was still some left. She somehow end up licking off his cheek and then going wide out. Oh shit. What did she just do. She blushed madly and then tried to laugh it off, [b "I'm not weird- I swear. Just thought it would be funny." ] Oh god. Shut up. She glanced off and cleared her voice, [b "Sooo, we should advertise ourselves right? Any ideas? We could pin papers in the towns bulltin board but-I'm not sure you even have one of those hear. SO I don't know how it works in this world." ] She really needed to learn more.
The kiss was a surprise, but it wasn't like it was anything bad. Soren thought that he really did like her and if she was willing to kiss him, then that would mean everything. maybe things could go back to normal like how they used to be and Aether would remember everything.
He shook his head [b [#F78F18 "It doesn't bother me. It makes me happy, but I want it to be fair to you too. If you feel like kissing me, then great"]] he smiled and then he led her to the machine.
When Aether stepped out of it, she looked really panicked, but at least her bruises and cuts were gone. He wouldn't forgive himself if she was hurting because it was all his idea too. He sighed a little and wondered if she would ever enjoy something in his world. Soren loved all the technology and how advanced things were here. It wasn't fun to see her being afraid of it all though. He wanted her to like Avalon.
They were soon making the cupcakes, Soren not really thinking as he decorated the cupcakes all willy nilly. It looked a mess, but when he took a bite, he smiled at the taste. It really was great. He used her technique and then the cupcake looked so much better. It made him glad to know he could make one. He licked his lips and then saw her AI. [b [#F78F18 "I think so too. We can do this and our shop will be going well!"]] he said excitedly as he rubbed the top of her AI's head. At least he still remembered him.
[b [#F78F18 "I think they'll love it. We can try making like three or four flavors and hopefully we can advertise the shop too"]] he thought about it and then he ended up getting some frosting on his cheek but he didn't notice. He thought about making posters or if they made a video and streamed it through the city. It would get their shop's name across.
Aether sighed, he looked confused. Maybe she shouldn't have done that. No, she definitely shouldn't have done that to him. It didn't make sense too. Her feelnigs got the best of her, lingering feelings from a life she didn't entirely remember but still knew a good amount, just not everything. [b [#00cca3 "You look like it bothers..." ]] She mumbled, and glanced away. [b [#00cca3 "I remember some things." ]] Her voice very soft and quiet. She admitted that she liked kissing him, but maybe it was better to stay silent about it for now.
But...she did want to know some things. Once. That meant that the first time they did it was when she vanished. What a way to go. [b [#00cca3 "Hmm... last dying wish kind of thing." ]] She laughed to herself quietly. He brought her to the machine and it kind of scared her. It freaked her out when he was in there, and it freaked her out mor ewhen she was in it. She wanted to get out as soon as possible. She got out and her cuts and burses were gone for sure, but it sure made a chill go down her spine. [b [#00cca3 "Y-yea. I guess so, I think I'd rather drink potions." ]]
They went off into the kitchen and she enjoyed herself decorating it. She followed instructions.It was hard at first but she got the hang of it. It looked sooo good. She glanced over at Soren, and showed him the instructions but when she saw what he did... [b [#00cca3 "Oh...Soren, why don't use the bag I'm using?" ]] SHe gave it to him, that made it come out in swirls. She sighed, and guessed they definitely needed to work on making cupcakes more. But...maybe they would still taste good. She grabbed a cupcake and put it right to his lips, [b [#00cca3 "Try it." ]] She made him take the bite and then ate another cupcake herself. She grinned after, [b [#00cca3 "This is actually good!" ]] She giggled and got pretty excited. [b [#00cca3 "We can really do this Soren!" ]]
She took some left over cream and put it to her lips, [b [#00cca3 "So yummy." ]] Her AI popped up and had to take a try and he squeaked loudly because he loved it.
[b [#00cca3 "Do you think the people in town will like it?" ]] Aether glanced over at Soren.
He was glad she was sort of getting what he was saying. Every world has it's own lingo, it's own special words, even if the main language was english. He placed the cupcakes down and was rewarded with a kiss. Did she really just kiss him? He was so confused. Why did she kiss him? They were just friends and not even in a relationship. It surprised him, but when she looked regretful, he shook his head.
[b [#F78F18 "It doesn't bother me because I remember. I just think it's not really fair to you since you don't really remember everything yet, so I want to make sure it's really okay"]] he admitted and then he smiled when she said she liked kissing him. Did she really? It made his heart skip a beat as he tried not to blush. He admitted to her they weren't a couple for that long. They felt close, but were just dating.
He thought about it and then he nodded [b [#F78F18 "We only tested the limit once"]] he rubbed the back of his neck and then he felt a little embarrassed. He led her into the room with the machine and then he watched her lay back inside.
[b [#F78F18 "It'll heal"]] he told her and watched her freeze up. [b [#F78F18 "You'll be okay. I won't let anything happen to you"]] he promised and then he watched her. The scanned scanned her body, making the bruises disappear and the scratches slowly fade. WHen it finished, he helped her out and then he looked at how frightened she was. [b [#F78F18 "You're okay Aether?"]] he asked, seeing her say she healed.
He smiled and then he followed her back to the kitchen, seeing the cupcakes had cooled down. [b [#F78F18 "So how do we decorate it?"]] he wondered, watching her as he grabbed some frosting and started slathering it on top of the cupcake. He wasn't sure what he was doing, so it ended up looking like a frosting mess. He looked at Aether's and wondered how she made it so pretty with a confused look on his face as if he didn't realize what he was doing wrong.
[b "Ouch...I'm starting to get what 'salt' means here in. You really have to be mad to do that." ] When the cupcakes were baking, she took the leap and went to kiss him and she liked the feeling, but he looked so surprised that it made her question all that she did, that it was out of place, that he didn't like that. She couldn't a tell for sure a hundred percent. But..she enjoyed kissing him.
[b "I...do remember some things, about what we did and a few things about you." ] She didn't want him to think that he was completely forgotten. He would remember... [b "Doesn't it bother you kissing me when I don't remember every little thing?" ] She frowned and whispered [b "I like kissing you." ] She listened on, not suring how she became his girlfriend before. Never official?
That meant they weren't or...? [b "Oh, so it was for a very short moment. Mmm...I guess so" ] She blushed lightly. She felt this excitment in her when she thought about being Soren's girlfirend, but still didn't understand why she would be so excited about it. [b "Did we...was that the only time we...laid together? I mean testing the limit?" ]] She asked.
Soren lead her into a different room and it freaked her out on what he did next. She was about to attack the monster beat swallowing Soren up, never expecting him to be trapped in so willingly. She almost attacked it, it wa sa good thing she hadn't. [b "That thing doesn't look like heals. " ] She stared at it and felt nervous to g in there. It made her really, really, really nervous, but she can't show Soren what a big scaredy cat she was. She took a deep breath and stepped in, laying dwn and it sure felt weird, and claustrophic. It closed up and she froze up. Oh god. It ate her. "This is what it's like t be in the bellow of a machine." She mumbled to herself. Something was flashing up and down her body. It freaked her out. She looked down at herself and saw the brusies and scratches were closing up. It ended, and she knockd on the glas sto help her get out. It opened, she got up and stepped back, [b "That thing is still scary..." ] She looked down at herself - but it worked really well! And she didn't ahve to use a potion!
[b"I've never been in a belly of a creature that's healed me before," ] She mentioned and looked back at Soren and then sighed to herself. Ah, if only she remembered more, if she could only progress with him from where wherever they were but she couldn't remember all of it... [b "Thank you...and we should go decorate our cupcakes," ]] Aether suggested.
He told her that the machine would heal her right up, but he could see the confusion on her face. He knew she wouldn't get it until she saw it for herself. Whenever someone from out of town came to visit, it was always new to them. Since Aether didn't live in a futuristic world, this was the best he could do with explaining.
He helped her take out the cupcakes and as they waited for it to cool, he told her about the word salty. [b [#F78F18 "I mean, not so much mad, but more....like u want to put salt on a wound mad"]] he tried to think about it and shrugged. That was all he could really say about it. Soren was watching the cupcakes bake and was excited to take a bite. He felt her lips against his and it really shocked him. He never thought Aether would just pull one of those. She was always so shy around him and never really did anything affectionate. It was odd, but he was happy she wanted to kiss him.
He nodded his head [b [#F78F18 "I know you don't really remember me, but I still have all these memories of you. So even if you kiss me, I'll remember"]] he smiled and told her he'd still want to be her boyfriend. [b [#F78F18 "I don't know if it's easy, but you and I never really became official until the last day I was with you. I guess I can make it a little more official when we get there"]] he scratched the back of his head thinking that Aether was more old fashioned so maybe she wanted him to ask her out a more older way. Like in some movies he's seen maybe?
He led her into the room with his machine. Soren stepped inside to show her, laying back and letting it scan him. WHen he was fine, he slowly stepped out of it and saw Aether panicking. [b [#F78F18 "Everything is fine Aether. It won't hurt you. It heals you"]] he told her and then he could see it frightened her. [b [#F78F18 "If you just lay down and relax, you'll see. It makes your bruises and cuts go away. It heals you"]] he told her, letting her have the choice. If she didn't want to go in, he wouldn't force her either.
A machine... Her lips waivered. She wasn't sure if she wanted to get near a machine for healing. [b [#00cca3"I don't know Soren..." ]] It made her nervous. Healing naturally seemed like the best idea right now.
They arrived back and baking got pretty fun but he was confusing her with some of these jokes. Salty. That was the first time she's ever heard of that. She doubly blinked, [b [#00cca3 "But...how is it a mad thing?" ]] She decided to just accept it and understood with every different types of worlds came with some odd lingo, including the ones she lived in. The cupcakes rised and they looked sooo good, but Soren...looked better.
She did something pretty bold, wanting to kiss him and she end up going for it. She wasn't sure if this was a negative or positive response but he made such a big deal out of it that maybe she shouldn't have. Although, he pulled her in and she end up feeling a bit shy about it. [b [#00cca3 "You do? Even if I don't remember you a hundred percent? I...well I'm doing fine. It was nice...kissing you." ]] She gently smiled and then her eyes widened. Her boyfriend? [b [#00cca3 "Is it really that easy? How did you ask me before?" ]] She wondered, because where she grew up, that was a pretty big thing. Then agan, there was no actual term for that.
She end up talking about the cupcakes and and nodded, letting him lead her to another room. There was a tube machine thing... What was that? Her eyes widened when Soren. Oh no. SOREN IS TRAPPED! She nearly screamed. [i The machine is eating Soren! ] [b [#00cca3 "Don't worry Soren, I'll help you get out of the machine's belly!" ]] She called but he was so calm and before she was about to draw a sword the door opened up and she felt still a little panicked.
[b [#00cca3 "What's all good!? The machine ate you. That's...scary. and it did that weird thing," ]] She was referring to the scanning. She didn't want to to be eaten up. [b [#00cca3 "I don't want to be eaten up by a machine. I don't see how it can heal me." ]]
He laughed a little at her reaction, seeing how surprised she was to hear this news. [b [#F78F18 "Yes a machine. You can go into a machine and it'll heal you right up. Everyone has one. I can show you before you go to bed"]] he told her and then he wondered if she was really okay.
They were soon in the kitchen having fun baking. He tossed some sugar on her and then he made a salty joke, but she didn't really get it. It was cute to see her a little confused. Soren laughed and smiled [b "It is a mad thing. It's just some Avalon talk I guess"]] he told her and then he stared at the oven, watching the cupcakes bake slowly. When he took it out, he set it on the table and then he faced Aether, seeing her ruby eyes just meet his and then her lips pecked his.
He was a little stunned because this Aether didn't really know him or remember him, so he never expected her to really want to kiss a stranger or friend. He pulled her in a little unconsciously and then he asked her a question. She didn't seem to have the answer. He smiled a little [b "Well personally I always like you kissing me. I just thought it would be uncomfortable for you. You know I want to be your boyfriend if you let me again"]] he told her and then he looked down at the cupcakes. He hoped they would taste good.
[b [#F78F18 "Since they're cooling, let me show you the potion thingy"]] he told her, leading her to another room. There was a tube like bed in the center. Soren decided to show her first. He laid down and clicked on the button. The tube casing closed and his body was visible through the glass. A scanner scanned his body from head to toe, showing no signs of physical or internal injuries. He slowly stepped out of the bed as it finished and then he looked back at her. [b [#F78F18 "See all good"]]
Aether’s eyes widened, and her jaw dropped, “A machine! You go into a machine!?” That did not sound safe at all. That sounded pretty damn scary. “That’s not like a potion.” Probably just best to wait it out and hope her body healed quickly on it’s own. She did feel pretty sore…and it did hurt to bend anything…but nothing she couldn’t manage.
Soren made this odd joke about ‘salt.’ “Is that a futuristic joke?” She had to ask, not understanding how someone can have an attitude of salt. “I don’t know Soren, I’m not really mad. I don’t think salt is a mad…thing.” This ‘salt’ thing made her scratch her head a bit. Futuristic guys sure said some weird stuff…or maybe she only found it weird. She sighed to herself.
The cupcakes were in the oven and she finished the frosting. Soren tasted it, and even gave some with his spoon. Ah, that made her blush. He took it out and she giggled, “Of course it’s hot.” She watched him and felt this urge to just…so she did. She blushed and leaned back and saw how his eyes widened. Why was he so shocked? Had her old self never done something like this before? “I...I well… I don’t know. I just felt like it.” The way he was looking at her mind her feel a little embarrassed, that maybe she shouldn’t have done that. His arms wrapped around her and as she watched him she imagined him kissing her like he did in the few memories she had of him, and just playing and going on adventures with him.
“Yea… I’m sorry. No…No, why would I have a concussion? I mean I did kind of hit my head while…but no!” She shook her head, “ I’m sorry Soren, I shouldn’t have done that without asking you. I swear I won’t do that again if you don’t like that.” Why was he so close, hew as making her heart pound so loudly, and her cheeks burn so bright, remembering…him…he touched her in ways… She doubly blinked and looked up at his eyes, wondering if he ever so much as thought of that since she came back. Ahh, who cares. [i You kind of do. ] She nibbled the bottom of her lip, [b “Anyways… We should let the cupcakes cool and then put on the frosting.”
He didn't think that his bike was ruined at all. He really wanted Aether to give it a try, so when she did take a chance and ride it, he was happy. She wasn't afraid at all and the fact that she was brave enough to just take off, was something really attractive. He had a smile on his face and he shook his head [b [#F78F18 "Don't worry Aether. Really"]] he told her, telling her that she should probably have a potion. He'd help her later before bed to do that because it was really hard to explain.
[b [#F78F18 "It's more of like a machine. You go into a machine"]] he told her, wondering if she'd kind of get that. THey were soon in the kitchen, trying to bake like how their tablet told them. THey were soon in the oven and then he made a joke, but could tell it wasn't the type of joke she really knew about. [b [#F78F18 "No...not literally salty. IT's more of like....an attitude. When you're like made about something"]] he told her, then putting the cupcakes into the oven.
WHen they worked on the cream, he saw Aether take a bite of the frosting and it tasted amazing. He stared at the oven, hearing it would take a while. HE saw the cupcakes already fully rising when the oven beeped. Soren opened it up and then he took out the cupcakes, touching it. [b [#F78F18 "Ouch! It's hot!"]] he told her and then he used a towel and placed it onto the table.
He faced her and soon felt her lips touching his. His eyes widened a little and then he saw her smiling. [b [#F78F18 "Wh....what was that for?"]] he asked, his teal eyes on her as he leaned in a little more, his arms wrapping around her. [b [#F78F18 "Are you sure you're okay? You didn't get like a concussion or anything right?"]]
She ruined his bike... She should have never been allowed on it. It must have cost him a lot to repair it. She sighed, [b [#00cca3 "I'm still really sorry." ]] She wasn't too sure about what he was talking about, a potion but not a potion. It made her squint and ponder on what sort of riddle was that and what was the answer. [b [#00cca3 "They taste different? They come in different shapes?" ]] She didn't know what else it could be. There really was so much she didn't understand about worlds like these.
IT was fun mixing stuff and making cupcakes with him. She end up having some sugar on her but she didn't really mind. [b [#00cca3 "Salty? You didn't throw salt on me did you?" ]] She paused in stirring before she continued again. She hand the rest to him to put in the oven, while watching carefully on how he did it. Once it was in, she leaned back against the counter top and saw the time counting down. She went onto making the frosting and looked back at him, [b [#00cca3 "Frosting, cream." ]] She let him give a try and saw him invite her a taste from the spoon he used. She hesitated but took it and it was just sweet enough. She blushed and nodded, [b [#00cca3 "Thanks..." ]] Her eyes followed him when he went to look at the cupcakes.
She tilted her head and remembered bits and pieces when she was with him. When they played truth or dare at his cabin, when he gave her his scarf, snuck around that monster to gather an ingredient, when he kissed her and were bare... [b [#00cca3 "Ah hmm..." ]] She nodded. She knew him, she could feel she knew him. [b [#00cca3 "It'll take a while won't it..." ]] She peaked over and saw it was actually baking pretty fast. When Soren turned around, she stepped forward, end up having her hands behind her back and decided to lean in and bump her lips against his lips, and lightly smiled.
HE could see her using his bike and then when she zoomed off without him telling her any other instructions, he felt worried. IF he was the reason she ended up disappearing, he'd never forgive himself. He saw her fall and Soren just quickly rushed to her side and then he could tell his bike would need repairs. He didn't care too much about that. As long as Aether was okay, he was fine too.
[b [#F78F18 "It's okay, don't worry about it. Repairs are really fast"]] he told her, thinking that maybe she needed to see a doctor or drink a potion after everything that just happened to her. He thought about it. [b [#F78F18 "Well the potions here are a little different"]] he told her, thinking that maybe it wasn't even a potion at all.
At his house, ended up helping her make what she wanted by mixing the ingredients in the bowl, following her instructions. He tossed some sugar . on her and then he laughed [b [#F78F18 "Are you? Are you sure you're not too salty"]] he joked with her and then he drew a pan they could use. He watched Aether curiously and then he saw her looking for a stove. HE put it in an oven and then he set the time and temperature, according to her instructions.
As he placed it in, he saw her making some frosting and then he leaned in, watching her curiously. [b [#F78F18 "Oooh, what's that?"]] he asked, peeking over and then he used a spoon to take a bite and then he brought some to her lips, not realizing he had just used that spoon. [b [#F78F18 "Mmm, it's really good Aether. It's delicious"]] he smiled, wondering what the food would look like. He walked to the oven and could see their little cups rising up. IT was like magic. [b [#F78F18 "Are we making cupcakes?"]] he wondered.
She fell pretty hard, it pushed the oxygen out of her, and her back hurt but she laughed it off, and got back up on her feet. She felt bad when she realized that she may have broken his bike. [b “I’m fine. I feel bad about your bike…” ] SO, there were potions in this world…or not? She raised a brow, [b “What do you mean. A potion is a potion, there’s nothing like potions.” ] She didn’t really get it. There was so much she didn’t know about worlds like these.
They got back, and she was willing to give this a shot. It could be fun, and maybe it’ll end up tasting amazing and looking really good. She opened up a tutorial on how to do it and the ingrediants they needed. She flicked flour on Soren and couldn’t help but laugh a bit. She tried to cover but she covered to late, when Sren put some sugar on her. [b “What, I’m already sweet.” ] She laughed. They added stuff to the bowl and began mixing. She then would let Soren do the mixing and would tell him when to stop.
[b “You don’t?” ] She fornwed, and leaned against the counter and saw him draw one. She smiled and used the paper cups and put it on. She began pouring the batch inside and stared at it, wondering if that was all. She grabbed the tray and followed instructions with the… [b “Soren…where is your stove?” ] She turned her head, not even sure how to even control a stove in the past, forget about in this current world. She let him handle that, while she got stuff for making the frosting. She saw some pretty cool ideas she wanted to try, so she used her AI to bring some of those supplies to life. Once the frosting was done she took some on her finger and went to Soren, [b “You should try some and tell me if it’s too sweet, or not enough or…if it tastes horrible.” ]
He listened to her and felt his chest sink a little. It made him happy to know that even though she didn't really remember him, a part of her wanted to find him. He smiled down at her and nodded [b [#F78F18 "I'm really glad you found me"]] he led her towards the empty road and allowed her to use his bike.
When he gave her some simple instructions, he thought she'd really get it on the first try, but he didn't really go detailed enough. He saw her zoom off and land on her back. Soren rushed over to her, nearly panicking because he didn't want her to disappear just from riding a motorcycle. He looked back at his bike and shook his head [b [#F78F18 "It's okay Aether. Don't worry about my bike. I just want to make sure you're okay"]] he told her, helping her up. [b [#F78F18 "Well not exactly the kind of potions your thinking of"]] he smiled and then they got back to his home as he sent his cycle off to be fixed.
When he walked into the kitchen, he wondered if they'd be able to do this. He's never baked anything in his life before. He watched her look things up on her AI and then he decided to help her, getting out the ingredients they needed. When he felt some flour flick onto him, he blinked in shock and tried to dust himself off. [b [#F78F18 "Hey!"]] he laughed and then he felt her wipe it off and then he smiled. He grabbed some sugar and then he dusted some onto you. [b [#F78F18 "See now you're sweet Aether"]] he laughed and then added the amounts to the bowl. He then helped her mix it up, looking around the kitchen for the materials they needed to bake this.
[b [#F78F18 "I don't know if I have any of those pans Aether. We might have to draw some like it"]] he told her, pulling out his tablet and then trying to draw the pans in the picture, seeing it come to life onto the countertop.
