(OH MY GOD, YES)
(Sjshauzhe, I gave him an Australian accent- XD)
"Hmmm," Carlos looked around the room. "Perhaps you can cut some onions?"
"How many, where do I put them, and how do you want them cut, sliced, diced, or minced?"
"Five minced onions in a metal bowl would be nice.” Carlos said, raising an impressed eyebrow.
"Consider it done," she said. She grabbed the french chef knife out of the knife block. She had a different method to cutting onions than most, but it was quicker and more efficient.
"So what exactly are we making?" she asked as she brought the knife to the onion.
"Onion stew," Carlos answered, taking a few spices and throwing them into a pot.
"What else is going in?" She asked. "Mushrooms?"
"Yes. That includes nicely sliced beef, cilantro, a few dabs of mango pickle, and some hot spices."
Asteria looked at him in confusion. "Mango pickle?" She had never heard of that.
(I've never heard of that)
(It's something my mom used to have in South Africa. It's spicy, sour pickles.)
(It tastes magnificent in curry)
"It's really good! Would you like to try some?" He asked, reaching for a jar filled with yellow squares and red specks.
The prophecy of the drawing is about to be fulfilled!)
Aster looked at the jar. It looked sort of exotic in a way.
"Sure," she said. "I like to try new things."
Carlos shook the jar up and down for ten seconds. Next, he opened one of the wooden drawers and took out a silver tablespoon. He opened the lid and carefully stuck the spoon inside, making sure to grab two of the squares.
"Open wide," Carlos teased, bringing the spoon of spicy pickle towards her mouth.
Asteria rolled her eyes. "Please, I'm not a little kid," she said. She took the spoon and consumed everything that was on it.
Immediately her eyes bulged out of her head in surprise. Her mouth exploded with spicy hotness and her face began to redden.
Carlos roared in laughter. Quickly, he ran to the cupboard and hastily grabbed a glass cup. He turned on the tap for filtered water and filled the cup up.
He held it above his head and smirked teasingly.
"How badly do you want the water?" He asked, his tone covered in playfulness.
"CARLOS MCHAVEN I'M GOING TO KILL YOU!!!" Asteria shouted. She covered her mouth with her hand because the heat was just too much.
