The crash woke Miles up, the sharp metallic clang of stainless steel
against the deeper, resonating thud of the wood floor.
Almost certain dents in his favorite copper pot—check.
Scratches in the hardwood floor their landlord would definitely freak
Bruises his roommates would inevitably punish him for? Still in
question, though if Xander’s exaggerated howl of pain was any indication,
Miles Costa thought those were inevitable.
“Goddamn it, Miles,” Xander exclaimed loudly, as Miles dragged his
head up from where it had landed in a slump of exhaustion only a few hours
before on his marble pastry slab. If he was a betting man, he’d definitely bet
that the fine grain of the marble was imprinted on his cheek.
He probably shouldn’t have fallen asleep in the kitchen after filming the
video, and he definitely shouldn’t have piled those pans in such a precarious
pile to dry after washing them. Inspiration had struck midway through the
dinner service last night, and he’d been in too much of a rush to work out
the intricacies of the recipe in his head to care much about the consequences
of yet another late-night/early-morning filming marathon.
“At least I washed the pans out?” Through his tired squint, Miles could
just make out Xander’s disgruntled expression. He was annoyed, not pissed
off, which boded well for Miles. He was also pretty sure that Xander had a
few crumbs clinging to his chin, which meant that he’d already sampled
some of last night’s experiments.
Having eaten one over the sink just past 4 a.m., Miles knew just how
fantastic those tarts were. Xander’s forgiveness was no longer an
uncertainty, but an inevitability.
“Good, huh?” Miles asked with a grin. After culinary school, working
in many good kitchens, before finally moving to the great kitchen at Terroir,
and then ending up with three chefs as roommates, he knew all about the
culinary ego. Sure, he had one, but constantly crowing about how talented
he was got exhausting. He normally preferred the food to do the talking for
him—but in this case, distracting Xander from the fact that he’d used the
kitchen until 4 a.m. again, was way more important.
“You film these too?” Xander asked ruefully. He reached for another
tart, not even trying to be subtle.
Miles remembered when they’d first met, and Xander, all that ego
barely restrained, had looked down his nose at pastry. He’d claimed to not
even like sweets, but now he was chowing down on Miles’ tarts like there
weren’t about a hundred more packed away in neatly stacked Tupperware.
It was particularly sweet to convert someone who didn’t appreciate his
craft, just like he enjoyed bringing the skill of his craft to the masses. Even
the masses who didn’t necessarily appreciate it, but watched his videos
“Of course I did.”
Xander might have been converted to liking Miles’ tarts, but Miles
knew he probably wasn’t ever going to understand why he filmed himself
making them, and posted them to social media. For Xander, it felt too much
like a magician giving away his secrets for free.
