Tome - Cumulous
There was one last addition to the group before the assignment could be started, and it was Chase.
And who could this ninny be? I'm already stuck with these two. This one better not be trouble.
Interrupting his thoughts was the teacher with the assignments. Luke was not looking forward to what it was. He knew he was a horrible cook. He can't stand touching the food or getting dirty. What he couldn't get his mind off of was his grade. He couldn't bare to let it drop, he has to excel in whatever he does. He took a nervous gulp. The teacher spoke.
"Today, you're assignment is simple. As a group, you will be making a full course meal. One appetizer, one main course, one side dish, and one dessert. You will graded individually, and as a group, depending on how well your dishes complement each other. Of course, you will be allowed to help each other. If you still need assistance, I'm always available. Don't worry, I don't bite."
There's a group grade. I just might have a chance... He began to tap his feet uncontrollably. He felt his face burning up and tapped his cheeks to assure himself he wasn't melting. He looked at his fingertips, covered in sweat. He rubbed his fingers together to get rid of it. How disgusting. Why am I so f****** nervous?
"Well, I think we have a nice group right here! Anyway, what do ya want to do? I call dibs on making the dessert! I'm not giving that up." Leo immediately said, claiming the dessert part for himself.
Luke tried to speak, "I-I guess I'll-"
"Figured that out easily, you cooking-impaired bas***ds, the main course is on me. As if Kirkland Bro Number One could even handle that." She growled as she gave the evil eye at Luke.
All the nervous feelings he felt were now gone and replaced with rage. The red on his face now flushed away and he reverted back to his original shade of color. "Are you referring to me as Kirkland Bro Number One? What the h*** is that?! How dare you underestimate my skill as well! You've got some nerve! I take appetizers, I'll show you guys some real food!"
Luke abruptly got up and went to get the appropriate ingredients for his dish. He would make scones. As he went to the pantry he remembered what he had to do.
! The ingredients... Ahh, I have to do this and that.
