"Making a cake."
He leaned on the kitchen counter, rested his chin on his fist and gazed at the luscious babe intent on her creation. He could never get enough of her. Her full scrumptious lips twitched into a smile and made him want to nibble at them.
The early morning light slanted across her smooth delicate skin and made her golden eyes glow with pleasure at doing the work she loved.
"What type of cake?"
Her smile widened, she slid softened butter into the mixer and poured in fine sugar.
"A chocolate wedding cake for a friend. Three layers, each cake different. This is the bottom layer. It's a Marble cake."
The harsh thrash of the beaters drowned out his voice before he could ask if he could have some. He sighed. No chance of having any of anything until she was done.
His head throbbed and he wondered how she could possibly bear the incessant pneumatic drilling sound. It could only be the intense relief she must feel when the noise stopped.
Distracted momentarily he took pleasure in watching the small quiver of her breasts as she broke the eggs with a sharp knife and let them slide into a glass dish.
When she reached for the salt, standing on tiptoe to get it down from the shelf, he almost swallowed his tongue at the gentle jiggle of her ass. Tempted to give it a little squeeze, he reached out, but she turned, sprinkled the salt into the flour and raised an eyebrow in query.
He huffed out a frustrated breath.
"Will you be long?"
"Not really. It's a large base to the cake, I have to put this one in on it's own before I bake the others. I won't decorate until tomorrow."
With a thought forming in his head, he grinned. She smiled back as though she could read his thoughts. Basically, yeah, he only ever had one thought when he was around her.
"It takes an hour and a half to bake."
A little disappointment curled in his stomach. Only an hour and a half. The beast stirred. An hour and a half would have to do - for now.
She turned on the mixer, this time a slow lazy turn of the beaters, and spooned in flour, then poured in a little of the milk and eggs she had beaten together much to his pleasure as he watched her entire body tremble to the rhythm. Alternating, she added all the ingredients until the mixture was smooth and white.
Impatient for his hour and a half, he frowned at her.
Her light laughter tempted him to grab her, but she seemed pre-occupied.
"No, I can't. If you put all the eggs in together you curdle the mixture, all the flour and it would poof everywhere."
She removed half the white mixture, set it aside in a bowl while she added cocoa powder to the remaining and let the mixer give another slow beat until the chocolate was completely mixed in.
He leaned forward to get a better view as she niftily spooned the two mixtures into a lined cake tin.
"Wow. That's big."
A large blob of chocolate mixture dropped into the tin as her lips twitched with amusement and his mouth watered.
She skimmed the last of the mixture out of the bowls and had no sooner put the chocolate one down when he whisked it away and swiped his finger around the inside. Sticking it in his mouth, he closed his eyes and almost died from sheer pleasure.
Cautious, she slipped the tin into the oven and closed the door.
"I just need to..."
"Too late. Clock's ticking"
He flung her squirming body over his shoulder and headed for the bedroom as she squealed - he had a lot to achieve in an hour and a half.
