"You have…you did make me a meal." He offered to help but he just stood there letting her do what she wanted. "You want to go out for some ice cream?"
"Y-yeah, I know." She smiled, eventually finishing and drying her hands off. "Hm?" Her eyebrows raised. "O-oh, uh…yeah. That w-would be…r-really nice, a-actually."
Liam froze as Hazel was in a rush to get the dishes to the sink, even before he could move or touch his plate. “O-Okay..I’ll let you handle…dishes.” He slowly stood up and held onto his chair, looking over at her. “You okay?”
"Y-yeah, I’m g-great." She reassured him with a nod. "I-I just…" She let out a sigh, turning to face him. "I just w-wanna do somethin’ n-nice for you, th-that’s all." She smiled sheepishly.
"And now i’m full…" He chuckled. "Do you need help with dishes?"
"N-no, no!" She quickly got to her feet to collect the dishes, moving them over to the sink where she already started to wash them. "I’ll d-do them, like a p-proper southern l-lady." She turned her head to smile at him.
"Okay..okay!" He put his arms up slightly in surrender. "I’m not leaving," he put his arms down. "this food is too good to dismiss anyway." Liam smiled.
Hazel smiled softly at him. “Th-thank you. I’m g-glad you like i-it.” She grinned, biting her lip gently.
He began to eat, then looked at her. Seeing if she was okay, she looked a bit flushed. “Are you sure you’re okay?….” Liam took another bite of his food. “I can leave…if you want me to.”
When he offered to leave, Hazel looked up and shook her head. “N-no!” She smiled slightly. “I w-want you to st-stay, I just…y-you make me n-nervous, that’s a-all…” She laughed sheepishly, looking down at her lap as she pushed her hair behind her ears.
Task 001; Survey
"Thanks." He smiled as the food was served onto his plate. Quickly he gave her a kiss on the cheek then sat himself down at the table.
"You’re welcome." She smiled back at him. Feeling his lips against her cheek, her face flushed a bright pink again. She had to take a moment to calm herself and try to slow her rapid heartbeat before she joined him silently at the table.
"You’re visible…" He gave a smile, happy that she didn’t go completely invisible. "Cool?…" Liam found a couple plates and set them on the counter by the stove. Nodding, he gave her an agreement that the food is at good taste.
"Y-yeah, uh…cool. Well…I-I don’t know. I j-just didn’t really know wh-what to say, I g-guess. I mean…n-no one’s ever s-said that to me b-before, so." She let out a nervous sigh, tucking her hair behind her ears. Smiling as he got the plates out, she began to serve what she’d been cooking.
"u-uh…Hazel….you’re going invisible, please don’t." He gently grabbed her hand. "It was just a thank you for dinner, and I like you" Slowly he took the stencil and took a taste of the food, "Wow…this is really good…"
"I-I am?" She quickly looked down at herself, panic and embarrassment starting to settle in. "O-oh gosh, I’m s-sorry, I—" She stopped talking when she felt his hand slip around hers. Though her face flushed even more and her heart started to pound it her chest, the contact was comforting and she found herself turning completely visible again. "Y-you do?" She couldn’t help the smile that grew on her face. "I-I mean…y-yeah, uh…cool." She tried her best to mask her nervousness, but she wasn’t doing a very good job. When he tried her food though, a look of excitement crossed her features. "You th-think so?" She beamed. "Thank y-you. It’s a-almost ready, s-so…"
