Kimitsuki hummed pleasantly as she waited for Hiroi to finish whatever it was she was doing in the kitchen. Judging by the smell, she was baking; and by the cacophony of noises, she was washing the dishes she used. Kimi hummed, remarking that she would need to get a step stool for Hiroi; so she could more easily cook. After all, Kimi was 5’5” if she didn’t bother with changing her height; so most things in the kitchen were in reach. However, for Hiroi, most things were likely in places too high for her to reach without climbing on the counters; or performing some other stunt. A desire to protect Hiroi rose up in Kimi; and not a motherly nurturing. More like how Kimi felt when she wished to protect someone she cared for deeply. Albeit, she was so uncertain given everything that happened to her recently; and her desire to not push Hiroi away.
Soon enough, as the water was still definitely running in the kitchen, Kimi watched as Hiroi walked from the kitchen; a cake in her arms. It was a Red Velvet cake; quite well made despite Hiroi’s nervousness about the cake. Not to mention, she was being quite adorable; adorable enough that Kimi just had to smile warmly. She put a hand on Hiroi’s cheek after she placed the cake down; then moved the hand to the top of her head.“I’m sure the cake’s just fine, Hiroi; it looks fantastic.”
Kimi gave Hiroi a warm smile, stood up and hummed as she looked towards the kitchen. They needed plates, forks, and something to cut the cake with."Wait right here, I'll get us something to eat the cake with~"
Kimitsuki walked towards the kitchen, and, after she walked in, turned the water off; she didn't wish her kitchen to flood. Not to mention, whatever mess was present, she wholly and completely ignored it. She retrieved a pair of plates, two forks, and a knife to cut the cake with. Then, without any indication that she noticed the mess in the Kitchen, she roamed back to Hiroi and put the plates down next to the cake. Kimi quickly cut rather fairly sized pieces, albeit the two pieces only used a third of the cake. She put the pieces on the plates, pushed one of the plates towards Hiroi, with a fork, and quickly took a bite of her cake.
For Hiroi's first time, and any mistakes that were made, she did make a good cake. Indeed, it didn't look the most handsome cake in the world; and no real cake aficionado would give her a good score. However, Kimi didn't give a damn, it was an excellent Red Velvet cake for Hiroi's first time. Kimi hummed warmly, swallowing her first bite of the cake, and ate just a bit more before finally speaking to Hiroi."You did great, Hiroi~ Sure, it's not perfect; but no cake truly can be. And I think you did an amazing job. Thank you for the cake, Hiroi."
Afterwards, Kimi proceeded to finish her cake and, if Hiroi would let her, she would help the smaller Danava clean the kitchen. She didn't mind, of course; but that all depended on Hiroi. Besides, with those skills, it was very possible Hiroi could just make her own food when she needs to eat; as long as she has the means and the ingredients.
