I stared at my peas and pushed them around the plate, I smiled, he hated peas. He always said they were peculiar and alien like.


I sat up, "what!"

"I was talking to you," Carla stared at me.

"Oh sorry, what did you say? I was," I hesitated.

"Yeah you zoned out, you know you do that a lot?" She moved on before I had the chance to answer, "any way! As I was saying, bras are deceptive, yay or nay?"

"What?" I was baffled.

"We are debating whether bras are deceptive or not..yay..or nay." She grinned at me.

"Err, yay?"

"Good answer," Lexi mumbled next to me, "maybe now she'll shut up." I laughed but coughed to cover it up.

"You alright?" Carla looked at me with concern but Marcus and Lexi just laughed.

"Fine, sorry." I took a mouthful of mash before she could ask me any more questions, I'd always been a terrible liar. Carla glared at me and then swept her gaze across Marcus and Lexi, "whatever." She went back to eating her burger.

"I thought you were on a diet?" Marcus asked suspiciously.

"Well I'm allowed to treat myself once in a while!" She looked at him dumbfounded.

"You're such an idiot sometimes Carl." He shook his head.

"Ergh, please. PLEASE. Do not call me that." She put her head in her hand. We all laughed.

"I'm home!"

I heard a sudden crash come from the kitchen. Running towards the door, I opened it to see my mum on the floor.

"Mum!" I rushed over to help her up, "mum! What happened?"

"Oh hi sweetheart," she looked up at me, "I'm a little bit dizzy mind if I stay down here for a bit? I think I have sunstroke." She chuckled.

"Sure, I'll get you some water." I propped her up against the cupboard and grabbed a glass filling it with water from the fridge.

"Thanks," she smiled at me. "Much better!" She started to push herself up, I held out my hand which she grabbed as I pulled her up.

"You sure you're okay?"

"Of course, of course!" She wiped down her trousers and walked over to the hob.

"No I'll finish, you go lie down." I motioned towards the lounge. She looked at me,

"I love you."

"I know mum." I watched her plod over to the sofa and sit down, she grabbed the remote and turned on the TV. I looked at the recipe book she had out on the side, 'risotto.'

"Easy enough," I muttered.

"Whatcha cooking? It smells divine." I felt two arms swoop around my hips and lift me in the air. I laughed as he twirled me around.

"Put me down or it wil burn!"

"As you command my lady!" He delicately placed me down on the floor and turned me around. Placing his forehead on mine he smiled, "Happy Valentine's day gorgeous."

"Right back atcha!" He kissed my cheek and eventually his lips found mine. I leant against the counter as he deepened the kiss, I felt my cheeks turning red.

"Woah woah woah you two! Keep it PG!" My mum laughed and walked straight by us. I pulled away and bit my lip.

"That was a wonderful present," I smirked.

"Oh that wasn't your present!" He looked at me mysteriously and then winked, "so how long till food?"

"Bout 5, maybe 10 minutes." I stirred the sauce some more.

"Great!" He slapped my bum as he walked over to the breakfast bar to sit down and smirked at me.

I gasped and giggled, "Nath!"
