Ryo smiled to himself, relaxing at the kitchen table, browsing through the morning paper; it made a pleasant change not being the one who had to fix breakfast. Dee might not be the most accomplished cook but if there was one thing he did really well, other than barbecuing steaks, it was pancakes.
There was a sizzling sound and a delicious aroma filled the kitchen as Dee poured batter into the pan, scattering fresh blueberries on top. Ryo peeked at his foster son over the top of the paper; Bikky was shifting restlessly in his seat, his mouth watering.
“How much longer? I’m starving!”
“Patience, squirt. Can’t rush perfection.”
“I don’t care about perfection; I just want food!”
“So fix yourself some cereal.”
“I don’t want cereal; I want pancakes!”
“Then you’ll just haveta wait, they’ve gotta cook before you can eat ‘em.” Dee flipped the pancake to cook the other side before decanting it onto a plate and adding more batter and blueberries to the pan.
By the time Dee finally set a loaded plate in front of Bikky, the boy was complaining about being faint with hunger.
“About time!” Bikky dug in enthusiastically. He might claim to hate Dee, but it didn’t stop him eating Dee’s cooking.
Ryo moved the paper out of the way and accepted his own plate. “Thanks, Dee.” He breathed in the aroma wafting off his plate before taking a bite. “Mm, perfect!”
There were definite advantages to having his boyfriend spend the night.
