fluorescent adolescent — open

”and what is that supposed to be?”
“shut up.”

the remark lacked much bite to it as the two stood, observing the bowl in front of them. jp’s face - although almost always painted with a look of disgust or particular disdain - said it all. it looked like he was waiting for the mixture to get up and walk or something. roman stared at him blankly. if he ever showed an ounce of emotion around others, this would have been the time he glared daggers another person’s way. instead, he simply looked back down at the bowl. “chocolate pudding. i made it all the time as a kid. ever had it?”

that was a lie. it was always livvy that made this comfort food of roman’s. he still remembered the first time she had made it for him. it had been after having to part ways with his best friend, vernon green. he had been upset, not quite the same… and, in an attempt to cheer him up, she laid a bowl on the table in front of him. maybe she’d made it before that point, though it never truly stuck out to him until after those few rough days. after that, she always made it for him on particularly trying days.

“i’ve had chocolate pudding before. and it’s never looked like- that.”

maybe he should’ve asked her for the recipe.

it looked too soupy, too- full of the wrong ingredients. the only reason he found himself hanging around jp anway was because he was good friends with mollie - one of the few people roman didn’t mind being around. god; couldn’t she find herself better company? “it tastes better than it looks. you should try it.”
”hell no.”

roman said that as if he had the guts to try it yet; the way he stared at jp, curiously and expectantly, might have showed that he had no idea how it was going to taste himself.

Franklin was no food connoisseur, in the same way as he was barely a snob when it came to what he ate. If it was palatable enough, he wouldn’t complain as he would always say that food was food. But when it came to who would do the cooking that day, Franklin would readily take that job off of Roman’s hands. He wouldn’t say that Roman’s cooking was bad, but if he were to choose between Roman’s cooking or his, he’d choose his own any day. One afternoon when he and Mollie returned from picking up some vegetables from the vegetable patch, he took an extra whiff of the rich chocolate scent that wafted through his home when they stepped inside.

❝ Mmm, what are you two making? ❞ Mollie enquired as she wandered passed Frank and over towards JP and Roman, soon to spot the attempt at chocolate pudding as she finished off her statement with an uncertain, ❝ It looks... ❞ Frank wandered over, lowering a basket of vegetables on a nearby counter before he stepped over to take a look for himself. Ah… He could see what Mollie and JP meant, but Franklin wasn’t here to openly discourage his husband for his less than appealing attempts at the dessert.

Picking up a spoon that lay on top of the drying rack, Frank had a quick taste of the pudding, jutting his bottom lip out ever-so-slightly before shifting his gaze over towards Roman. ❝ It’s good. ❞ He remarked, soon pointing the end of his spoon towards Mollie and JP as he then added, ❝ If you judge based on appearances, then you’re missing out. ❞ ❝ Unless you’re judging JP, ‘cause then you’re not missing out on much. ❞ Mollie remarked with a teasing grin, nudging JP’s shoulder before wandering down to sit at the nearby breakfast table. ❝ I’ll leave the pudding for you boys to eat. I’m not hungry anyways. ❞
