I just thought this would be cute. I hope you enjoy it.
Daphne ducked into the walk in freezer to grab some tomatoes. She felt a hand on her shoulder. When she turned around Jeff was behind her.
"I was waiting for you to come in here so I could ask you something." Jeff said.
Daphne was intrigued.
"I want to cook you dinner. Tomorrow?" Jeff asked.
"One condition, no insects." She said.
Jeff laughed. "Deal."
Daphne sat at the counter in Jeff's kitchen watching him cook. It was really a sight to see. She could watch him cook all day. Jeff started to say something as he turned away.
"Jeff." Daphne said flatly.
He turned to face her. "Sorry. I said I'm almost done. Will you take the glasses to the table?"
"Sure." Daphne got up and walked to the table. She placed the two glasses down, and then took her seat. Jeff brought over the plates. He placed her plate down then his.
Dinner is served, he signed.
Daphne was shocked.
"Where did you learn that?" She said with a huge smile on her face.
"I'm taking a class." Jeff sat down. "I know it must be a lot of work for you to pay attention to everything I say. I wanted to do something to help you."
"Thank you." Daphne said.
Jeff took her hand. "I want to give us a real shot. So if that means taking classes to help us better communicate, then I'm happy to do it." He brought her hand to his lips and gave her a kiss.
"You'll never know how much that means to me." Daphne said.
"Now dig in." Jeff said.
Daphne took a good look at her plate. In the middle sat a delicious looking piece of lasagna.
"It's Vegetarian. I promise." Jeff said.
Daphne takes a bite.
"It's one of the most delicious things I have ever had." Daphne said.
Daphne sat on the couch facing the fire. Jeff came in with a bowl strawberry. Daphne frowned.
"What?" Jeff said.
"There is only one thing in the world I'm allergic to." Daphne said.
Jeff looked down. "Strawberries. I'm sorry."
"It's okay. You didn't know." Daphne felt so bad. Jeff looked so sad.
"Why don't we go out and get frozen yogurt?" Daphne said.
"That sounds great."
Daphne sat in the passengers seat as Jeff pulls onto a dirt road.
"Is this the part when you take me into the woods, and chop me up to add to tomorrow nights beef stew?" Daphne asked.
"What?" Jeff asked half amused, half confused.
"What can I say? I like horror movies."
"No. I'm taking you to a place I know."
A few minutes later they pulled out of the trees onto the edge of a cliff. Over the cliff Daphne saw the lights of the city. Jeff turned off the car. Daphne handed him the frozen yogurt.
"I moved here because my mother was sick. At first a hated it here. There was no ocean. My first night I went for a drive. I got all turned around. I ended up here. I realized how beautiful the city is, and no matter how much I hated it, it was my home for now."
"That's so cheezy."
"I know, but it's true."
Daphne sat back and looked out over the city as she eat her yogurt.
