Who: Kaitlyn and Tristan White
What: Kaity's being domestic
Where: Their bungalow
When: Friday afternoon, around 3ish
Why: Because Kris' laptop took a long walk off a short pier and she has no AIM access so this is the next best thing
Prompt: Uh, TBD

Kaity had put the twins down for a nap and was feeling a little bit restless, a little bit antsy. She had cleaned up the house a little but it hadn't helped very much. She'd pestered Tristan for a bit, asking him if there was anything he could get her, anything she could do for him and that had kept her occupied for a while. However, she was back to feeling restless, so she'd had the bright idea to try to make some cookies. She and Gage had gotten into a discussion about random things that made them happy when she'd run into him at the grocery store, and he'd informed her that baking cookies was one of the most relaxing things he'd ever done.

So she had opting to give it a shot. She still couldn't explain it, but she'd managed to get flour over almost every surface in the little area of the kitchen in which she was working -- around the stove, all over one side of the island counter and even all over her. Her first batch of cookies were almost out of the oven and she was very excited. They were heart-shaped sugar cookies -- the recipe was borrowed from Gage -- but there was one very important ingredient that she'd forgotten to put into the cookies -- sugar.

The timer dinged, signalling the cookies were done, and Kaity squealed a little in excitement, putting on her oven mitts and pulling the first tray out of the oven.

Tristan was lounging on the couch, rotating from one side to the next as he tried to catch up on his sleep. He was tired, drained, dizzy, and wanting a drink but sadly that wasn't allowed with his medication that he was on. Josiah was laying in a swinging chair nearby and making grabby hands at Tristan, babbling non-stop about how 'Daddy's fuzzies will grow back' and then 'I'll squish them.' he paused when Josiah made a squeak. 'Smell bad.'

Kaity put the cookies on a wire rack to cool and then went to check on Tristan to see if there was anything he needed, even though she'd just done that forty minutes ago.

She smiled at Josiah and reached out to grab one of his hands, wiggling it a little. "How's Daddy doing, huh?" she asked.

"Fine," Tristan said blandly, but not wanting to give any other answer really. "What did you do in the kitchen dear? Josiah says that it smells off in there." Kaity and cooking usually didn't mean good things.

Kaity pouted a little. "It smells off? Oh no...I made sugar cookies from a recipe that Gage gave me." She went over to Tristan. "Just fine?"

"Yes, just fine," he repeated. "What would you like for me to be? Tickled and elated?" he shrugged a little and stretched, trying to stretch out his whole body and having that strange ghost feeling again. "I think Josiah is just not used to the smell of baking in the house."

"No..." Kaity said, biting her lip. "I mean, yes, but I know it's still a little soon to expect that. I just...I don't think 'fine' covers it." She rubbed the back of her neck and shrugged a little. "I thought you would appreciate the break of me hovering over you."

"What would you like for me to say then dear?" he asked her curiously and wondered what kind of answer she was looking for exactly. "I don't mind really, but that's fine" it at least showed that she wanted him.

"How you're really feeling." she said. "I don't know. Something other than fine." She smiled softly. "Well, they're cooling now, so you can try them in a little bit." She went over to him, sitting down beside him. "Is there anything you want?"
tristan_white
Mar. 1st, 2008 06:33 am (UTC)
He shrugged, "I don't think you'd much like to know how I'm really feeling at the moment Kaity. I can't wait to try them." he said with a smile. "I don't care."

"Yes, I would." she said quietly. "I hope that they're good. Gage made it sound so easy when he was talking about baking. I think I made a mess in the kitchen though." She gave him a sheepish smile and then moved closer to kiss him.

"Messes are more than alright," he said with a smile "You talk with Gage you say?" He asked her curiously. "Well, I know you know how to read and thus I'm pretty confident you can bake a cookie."

Kaity smiled and nodded. "Yeah, I've got flour all over me." she said, gesturing downward at herself. She shrugged. "I can't say that we talk regularly. I mean, I ran into him at the grocery store and we talked a little as we were walking around." She blushed a little, shrugging. "We'll see."

"I noticed that too," he said as he looked her up and down, and really, he wouldn't complain too much about it at all. It was a nice look. "Oh, alright, I was just curious."
kaitygb
Mar. 3rd, 2008 05:34 am (UTC)
She laughed. "I'm getting flour all over the couch." she said sheepishly. "Oops. And yeah. I don't really talk to anybody much. He was a nice kid though."

"I don't mind. I'm sure the dog will eat it all anyway," Tristan said with a soft smile before slowly getting up. "That's good. That's really good."
kaitygb
Mar. 4th, 2008 01:30 pm (UTC)
Kaity grinned. "Maybe.' she said. "So do you want to try a cookie? I think they should be cool enough now?"
tristan_white
Mar. 6th, 2008 04:28 pm (UTC)
"Yes dear. I would love a cookie," he said with another soft smile. He stretched a bit again and regained his footing before kind of hobbling over to the kitchen area.

"Alright." she said as she stood up. She walked with him to the kitchen, then poured him a glass of milk and handed him a cookie.

He smiled and took a bite of the cookie and raised an eyebrow before taking a slow drink from his glass.

She bit her lip and looked at him curiously. "What's the raised eyebrow for? Are they bad?" she said.

Mar. 10th, 2008 03:41 am (UTC)
"Not necessarily," he said and finished off the cookie.
kaitygb
Mar. 10th, 2008 04:03 am (UTC)
"No?" she said. "Okay. I just wasn't sure."
tristan_white
Mar. 10th, 2008 04:19 am (UTC)
"You have one," he said, and worked on his glass of milk.
kaitygb
Mar. 10th, 2008 05:18 am (UTC)
"oh good." she said, breathing a sigh of relief. " I was so afraid they were going to turn out horrible or something."
tristan_white
Mar. 10th, 2008 01:12 pm (UTC)
"Have one," he said again. "I like anything you do Kaity, you should know that."
kaitygb
Mar. 10th, 2008 01:39 pm (UTC)
She smiled and blushed, reaching for a cookie. "I know, I just...I don't know. Nervous about trying new things, I guess." She took a bite of the cookie, chewing it thoughtfully.

Mar. 10th, 2008 03:23 pm (UTC)
"Why?" He asked her softly. "Has motherhood really made you so cautious?"
kaitygb
Mar. 10th, 2008 03:37 pm (UTC)
She thought it for a moment as she nibbled her cookie. "I guess so." she said quietly. "Is that bad?"
tristan_white
Mar. 10th, 2008 11:12 pm (UTC)
"I guess it dpends on how you look on it," he said quietly. "it doesn't have to be."
kaitygb
Mar. 11th, 2008 12:14 am (UTC)
"How do you look at it?" she asked.
tristan_white
Mar. 11th, 2008 05:35 am (UTC)
"I will look at it however you wish to"
kaitygb
Mar. 11th, 2008 12:32 pm (UTC)
She laughed lightly and shrugged a little. "I don't know. Being cautious can be a good thing, I guess. I'm a mom, I'm a role model now."
tristan_white
Mar. 11th, 2008 03:23 pm (UTC)
"Alright," he said, "THen there you go."
kaitygb
Mar. 11th, 2008 03:32 pm (UTC)
"Could be a bad thing if I'm too cautious though." she said thoughtfully.
tristan_white
Mar. 12th, 2008 02:07 am (UTC)
"I guess, whatever you would like to be Kaity, that's what you should be."
kaitygb
Mar. 12th, 2008 03:55 pm (UTC)
She nodded. "I know." she said quietly. "I am."
tristan_white
Mar. 17th, 2008 03:19 pm (UTC)
"Alright, good."
kaitygb
Mar. 17th, 2008 03:59 pm (UTC)
She grinned and moved over to sit in his lap, kissing him gently. "I love you so much."
tristan_white
Mar. 19th, 2008 03:30 pm (UTC)
"I love you too," He put his arms around her gently, taking another cookie even though she left the sugar out on accident (was that what she left out?). He was good and supportive.
kaitygb
Mar. 19th, 2008 08:07 pm (UTC)
"I"m glad you like my cookies." she said, smiling. "I was so afraid that I forgot something." She had completely skipped over the sugar in the list of ingredients. She hadn't even measured any out. She grabbed a cookie and took a bite, chewing thoughtfully.

He nodded, having noticed the lack of sugar but still, he was good and supportive and didn't want to make her feel awful. "They're just the right size and color and everything"
