Thank you for reading and reviewing :) It means so much to me! Love all you to bits..
They arrived at the bakery just in time for the appointment. Tifa rushed in with Lightning. Noctis leisurely made his entrance into the little quaint bakery. Genesis hugged Tifa and gave her a light peck on the lips.
"Alright, let's start this thing!" Genesis clapped his hands together and everyone sat down.
A man with a tall white hat came out with a tray of assorted pastries and cakes. The first looked absolutely delectable; it made everyone's mouth water.
"Carrot!" He shouted, his accent was thick. 'Of course, my life is full of stereotypes...' Tifa groaned. Of course, the baker would have an accent, because everything in her life just wasn't a little too cliché.
Lightning hesitated to taste the cake, so was everyone else. The baker had left without another word, back to the kitchen.
"So, anyone willing to do a test run on this cake first?" Noctis asked poking the orangey cake with white frosting with a fork.
"It was pretty before he cut it..." Genesis added.
"I don't think carrots were meant to be baked into cake form." Light's opinion was preventing her from tasting the cake.
"You guys are such babies! I have to do everything!" Tifa shoved a fork-ful of the orange cake into her mouth. She chewed fast and then slowed when the carrier taste was unbearable.
"Is it that bad?" Light was setting her fork down, convinced it was a lost cause. Tifa gulped it and then grimaced, chasing it with the water provided.
"God, why did I even think an orange cake would taste good?" Tifa scrubbed her tongue with her napkin. Light smirked and was shot a death glare from Tifa. "Okay, Light since you're my maid-of-honor, I think you should try the next one."
The baker had come back after the group had 'eaten' the carrot cake. Eaten meaning dumping it in the fern pot in the corner. He set another beautifully elegant looking cake in front of them.
"Looks promising..." Light said hopeful.
"Lemon!" The baker left again without another word. Tifa was biting her knuckle trying to hold back her laughs.
"C'mon Lightning, it's lemon. Lots of people like lemon cake!" Noctis encouraged her.
"Shut up, lemons are fruit! They don't have any business in a cake!" She hesitated as she brought the fork up to her mouth. She sighed and ate it. 'Remember that time when you had chocolate orange cookie...yeah, this is worse.' Stupid conscience. She swallowed hard, and stuck her tongue out in disgust. "I can still taste it!" she said after chugging her water and eating a mint.
Tifa almost fell out of her chair from laughter. She had to excuse herself to the restroom to compose her self.
Just then, a little bell above the doorway rung. Noctis perked up and went over to greet the person. 'Oh right, Noctis' plus one.' Lightning briefly thought. She was facing away from the door, so she had to turn to look. It was a tall, dark-haired, blue eyed guy. He was almost like another Noctis, the way he casually made his way to the table.
"Zack, this is Lightning and Genesis, the lovely bride will be out in a moment. Lightning, Genesis, this is Zack my mentor and wingman." Light waved, the famous Zack she'd heard so much about was finally here. He took a seat in between Light and Noctis, facing Tifa's empty chair and Genesis.
"So, Lightning, Noctis is a great human being, and I hear so are you. Well, isn't that a coincidence? Two amazing people. It's just delightful. Isn't Noctis?"
"Indeed, yes yes it is." He nodded. This was not happening. She was not experiencing what drunken bimbos at bars do, when these two wingman were on the prowl.
"It's like heaven and Earth want you two to be together, who knows maybe right now there's 173 stories about you two? Just a random number." Noctis nodded with a straight face pretending to be in deep thought about it.
"What did I miss..." Tifa trailed off when she saw the new group member. She froze in her tracks. 'This cannot be happening..' Zack locked eye contact with her and smiled wide. He stood up and straightened out his jacket.
"Hello, you must be the lovely bride of the lucky man Genesis. I'm Zack Fair." His tone was smooth. Tifa's hands began to sweat and she finally answered.
"Yes. Tifa Lockhart."
"Why does that name sound so, so familiar?" He smirked. This was not going to be an easy sat back down and Genesis intertwined his fingers with Tifa's.
"Sweaty, much?" He teased. Her smile was forced. Zack's smirk never left and he continued to speak.
For the third time the baker returned. The cake had black frosting an was red inside. He cut them a small slice and passed it out.
"Red Velvet." They all sighed in relief, finally something normal. "With black licorice frosting." Why not? He retreated back to the kitchen.
"Are any of these cakes normal?" Noctis questioned.
"I think it is actually pretty good." Genesis was enjoying the red and black cake. "We should do this one."
"You only like it because it's red and black!" Tifa gestures to his red and black colored t-shirt.
"Well, anyways it doesn't fit the color scheme." Genesis couldn't say he didn't try, and he gladly helped himself to everyone else's portions.
"Zack, Noctis tells me you have a girlfriend, that's why he keeps bugging me to be his wingwoman. Care to tell us who she is?" Lightning ignited the small talk back up.
"Well, I hope you do that job with pride. And I can't tell you who she is or she'll probably strangle me, but I can tell you she is a brunette, a bartender and the most beautiful woman I have ever met." Tifa blushed a tad.
"Tifa's a bartender and a brunette."
'Shit, the gig is up! She is on to me!' Tifa started fretting. Lightning wasn't stupid and could easily put two and two together.
"Tifa, do you know her?"
"It's not me! I mean, no I probably don't. There isn't a Super League of Bartenders." she laughed nervously at her joke.
"Tifa, are you alright, pooh bear?" Zack let out a small laugh, he tried to hold back when he heard the pet name from Genesis. Tifa stomped hard on a foot under the table.
"Ow! Son of-"
"Mint Ice cream cake!" The baker showed up out of no where and served the ice cream cake that looked as if it was brought from Baskin Robbins. Lightning rubbed her foot and Tifa gave an apologetic look.
"This is my favorite!" Light and Noctis exclaimed and destroyed their piece of cake.
"Destiny, I tell ya!" Zack ranted again.
The five exited the bakery and were less than impressed. Tifa wanted to bolt out of the parking lot to her house.
"I can't believe you decided on a cheap ice cream cake." Genesis commented.
"Well, it was the eat one out of the several levels of Cake Flavor Hell!" Tifa was near the breaking point.
"The guy was so confused!" Noctis was still laughing. When Tifa had tried to explain she wanted a tiered ice cream cake, he started shouting No, and the names of the cakes. It turned out that he could only say those words. His cashier had to translate.
"It was nice meeting all of you." Zack was leaving.
"Ya, I just have to be at the Gran Edge Hotel, eigth floor, 5:00 sharp." Tifa glared again. "Noce meeting you Genesis, Lightning. Tifa." He smiled at Tifa. And began walking to his car. When he reached it he shouted "Destiny!" And drove off.
"That guy cracks me up. A little specific." Genesis's face lit up. "We should invite him to the wedding!" If Tifa, had been drinking water, this is where she'd spit it out in his face.
"He is funny, and a cool guy."
"This is true." Noctis added. Light punched his arm, telling him not to encourage that."
"We should talk about it. Later." try started back to their cars. Tifa stopped again. "Shit, I have to be at this thing for work, sorry Light, I can't take you home. But I'm sure Noctis would love to."
"Don't worry, I'm not going to kidnap you, I live across the hall, you would escape too easy." Noctis joked. Tifa kisses Genesis goodbye. They all parted ways.
"I can't believe you!" Tifa shouted. Zack sat patiently on the bed's edge. "Why did you stay?"
"Why is it a big deal? I didn't say anything!"
"Your little description was extremely obvious, Light probably knows!"
"Oh C'mon, those were compliments. So what if she knows? Now let's just forget about today." he finished seductively.
"Why do you have to be such a man whore?"
"Hey, that was a low blow! And you are technically the man-whore in this relationship." Zack wa getting a little agitated at Tifa for making a big deal. Even though he knew their secret was safe.
"You are the one getting married in three weeks and is seeing another man on the side!"
"Y'know what Zack! It was a mistake coming here. Right from the get go!" I don't can't believe you." she was collecting her phone and purse before slamming the door.
"Tifa! Wait!" He ran a hand through his hair and fell onto the bed.
