Catching Up To Do ~Reprise~
Immediately after the message was sent Kazumi would begin pacing around the couch anxiously as she awaited a response. A wave of anxiety would wash over her as she would frequently click the home button of her smart phone. She could feel her chest tighten with each passing step as she continued to look at the phone. She could only feel mild worry raise up into full on stress before resolving to just place the phone in her pocket and plopping herself down on the couch and began to monologue to herself. “I don’t know why I’m even worrying … it’s not like she would be so afraid of me that a little message would cause her to run right? .. Plus .. I mean… even if she doesn’t like me.. it’s not like she’d be able to leap through the phone or something…!”
Even with that self-mediated and one sided conversation she could nnot help but remember just how scared Sayaka was of her all that time ago. It was enough for her to sink further into the couch as she reflected on how she’s never really had much luck in the way of getting to know the blunette magi. They always either wanted to kill her or were afraid of her after seeing what she was and it would cause her to sigh slightly. “I just really wish that things could go right this time …” And almost as if on cue her phone would pulsate and chime simultaneously as a new message was received, prompting her to immediately whip her phone out and read over the message
"Huh…? She seems really calm about it…. Maybe she was just having an off day that one time… Maybe I really don’t scare her! This is great! I’ll be sure to whip up something nice for us to eat!" With that thought out she would immediately begin to immediately and haphazardly respond with frightful speed to accentuate her excitement as a few typos here and there were made.
>That sounds grat Sayaka-san! Ill get things prepaird for your arrival! Oh I’m sure I dno’t need to give you direction to Ma-chn’s home, so instad i s theer antyhing youd like me tofix?
And just like that with no proof reading she would excitedly hit the send button and scuttle on off to the kitchen to begin preparing her kitchen utensils in anticipation for any special requests made by her soon-to-be guest.
Seeing the response sent back to her, Sayaka stopped what she was doing. She had been getting ready to go. Judging by the tone of the message, Kazumi really wanted to meet back up again, which told Sayaka she could just go ahead and get herself dressed and ready to go even while she waited for the reply back to her acceptance of the invitation to Mami’s home to see Kazumi.
Judging by the typos, it was rushed. She chuckled a little bit, rubbing the back of her head.
» Nothing in particular…surprise me? I hear you’re a good cook, so I’m sure whatever’s fine. I’m gonna finish getting ready, and then head down there later. Is there anything you’d like me to bring, though?
She sent back, shutting her phone after. Not that she truly knew a lot about Kazumi. But she did hear that much. If not from Yuuri, from Mami. She didn’t mind the idea of a surprise meal or something. She wasn’t sure what Kazumi could cook, after all. I’m surrounded by good cooks…She thought with a bit of comically dismiss tone.
While completely anxious Kazumi could not help but find herself elated that at the very least she could tell from the tone of the texts was that Sayaka was both receptive and did not seem to be afraid. She would set her phone aside on the kitchen counter and begin readying the pots and pans and turning on both the oven and stove to both preheat depending. With that she would begin bundling the silverware together and setting those to the side one set on each end of the dining table. She would find herself happily humming to herself and less obsessed with the response she would get than she was preciously as she certainly held a jaunty skip to her step as she maneuvered between the kitchen and dining room table.
Of course her attention to preparation would be broken by her phone once more going off to herald a new message. With a bit of a swerve in a spin she would grab the phone and carefully read it over. Unfortunately no specific requests given, but that was okay since she knew more than plenty of dishes thanks large and due part to her learnings from her original life as Michiru and her Grandmother teaching her how to cook. The first thing to jump to her mind was an Italian dish that seemed to at least be a hit with her sisters back when she lived in Asunaro with the others.
First things would have to come first as she knew she could not keep such a timed matter up in the air. Quickly she would begin to type away her corresponding message to Sayaka after a brief pause for thought given her inquiry. A certain ‘aha’ would be had and vocalized as she immediately had an idea of what her guest could bring over.
» No worries there! I think I have a great idea of what to fix! Just if you could bring by some fresh bread if you could? I think a side of garlic bread is just the thing to go with what I have in mind! Take all the time you need to get ready, this is going to take a little bit of preparation on my part anyways! I’ll see you soon Sayaka!
With that out of the way she would reach over to the side and tie her apron on and slide her phone into one of its pockets and scanned about for what she would need to pull out for her dish. She’d muse for a moment to make sure everything she needed was there and thankfully it was since she had been wanting to make this for some time now.
"Aha! There you are. Lets see … fresh eggplants … onion …tomatos …garlic …mozzarella …Ahh! I think that’s all that’s needed from here…." With items retrieved she would inch the door shut with a bit of aid from her hip as her hands were full and soon would grab the other assorted spices and tools needed to make lunch.
