Drew rolled over onto his back and slowly opened his eyes. He reached an arm out to the other side of the bed, Rick wasn’t there. Drew let out a sigh and sat up, stretching and letting out a yawn. He slowly made his way to the bathroom to relieve his bladder and then he headed out into the hallway. As soon as he left the bedroom he could smell something delicious. He couldn’t pinpoint the scent he smelled though.
He grabbed his hooded sweatshirt from the back of the living room chair as he made his way towards the kitchen and he slid it on, leaving the hood up. Drew rubbed at his eyes and let out another yawn as he entered the kitchen. “What are you making?” He sat down at the table and rested his head on his arms that he had folded on top of the table.
Rick let out a happy chuckle. “Hi there sleepy head.” He sat the spoon down on the counter and came over to Drew and kissed him on the forehead, running his hand over his short hair, pulling the hood down. “I hope I didn’t wake you up too soon.”
Drew shook his head and leaned into Rick’s hand that was now rested against his jaw. “No, but it smells delicious. So what is it?”
“I know how much we both love the food from Oriental Gardens, but since they are closed for renovations I thought I would try to make us some homemade Chinese. I am making General Tso’s Chicken with Rice and steamed snow peas and carrots.” Rick let out a chuckle when Drew picked his head up off his arms and smiled. He leaned down and pressed a kiss to Drew’s lips.
“Homemade food is the best.” Drew said with a smile once they broke the kiss.
“Oh my word, what is that amazing smell?” Krista asked as she stepped into the lounge and noticed Drew sitting at the table with his normal coffee mug and a bowl of some steaming food. She came over and draped her arms over his shoulders, placing her chin on his head.
“Rick made us some homemade General Tso’s chicken and it’s amazing. He sent some to work with me in case I got hungry.” Drew stabbed a piece of the chicken with his fork and raised it up towards Krista.
Krista took the piece of chicken into her mouth and let out a happy hum. “Wow, I didn’t know Rick was such a great cook.” She eyed the dish of chicken and then tried to take the fork from Drew’s hand.
“Hey…don’t get grabby.” Drew swatted at her hand and then glanced up at her. “The taste is even better than the smell isn’t it?”
“Yeah it is. I think I might steal him away from you.”
Drew let out a chuckle. “Good luck with that.”
Krista let out a chuckle of her own and then kissed the side of Drew’s head. “I know I can’t steal him away from you. I just might have to come over for meals with you guys.”
Drew let out another chuckle. “I will run that by Rick.”
