A Birthday in the Realm

Today is the birthday of someone so very special to me… I was thinking about how to mark it and decided that I would write a story…

If Wishes Were Horses…

It looked like a typical day in the Realm. Sunny, warm… A nice day…

Save for the cursing that came from the kitchen in Tera’s home that morning…

Within that kitchen would be seen a flour covered Succubi Queen with batter in her hair and covering her red apron as she looked at a tray that she had dropped after taking it our of the oven…

She had forgotten that it might be slightly warm and didn’t use oven mitts…

Sitting on the window sill was a reddish-brown AngelKitty holding a sign that said, “Ovens are hot you know.”

Tera blew on her fingers and then said, “Oh hush Kira… If you aren’t going to help, then at least make sure that he doesn’t come in here okay?”

Kira sort of nod-nodded and then turned around to watch the paths around Tera’s home to the doors leading to the kitchen…

Tera in the meantime blew a stray lock of her hair back out of her eyes and looked at the mess on the countertop with a sigh.

Baking was never her strong suite… Well real baking anyway… She could just snap her fingers and have what she wanted ready to go, but today was special and she had decided to make an effort to actually make this from scratch.

As messy as that was going to be…

The thing about living in a world of magic is of course that objects in those worlds tend to have personalities…

Tera’s toaster had one for certain.

Her name was Toastie and she was an evil toaster. She didn’t give you a human hand when you tried to make waffles, but if she didn’t like what you were making, she’d either burn it or under toast it…

Toastie had an attitude problem in case you didn’t figure that out…

She shook the layer of flour off her red chrome exterior and then said to Tera, “You haven’t got all day. Stop messing around and get this done.”

With one finger, Tera pushed Toastie back on the counter as she said, “Not hellllllllping… So be quiet and suffer a little or I’ll dump the next bunch of batter on top of you kk?”

Toastie mumbled at the threat and just watched from her spot on the counter…

Tera returned to the open cookbook on the counter and read the instructions again for the umpteenth time…

Birthday Muffins – Made with Love

1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 eggs
1 cup white sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups cherries

Then underneath that in Tera’s own handwriting was written…

One kiss of hope
One hug of love
One cuddle of pleasure
One snuggle of happiness
One huggle of devotion

She smiled and took another try at the muffins again…

As Tera was mixing the batter again in the large silver bowl she had found earlier, her daughter Rianna poked her head into the kitchen. With a giggle she asked, “Can I lick the bowl?”

Tera turned and looked at the blue horned redhead and replied with a wink, “Silly… You just wait your turn…”

The awwww from Rianna in reply could be clearly heard over the wine of the electric mixer as Tera continued her work and said, “And no telling him okay? Or I’ll have to swat your bum…”

Rianna disappeared then, back down the hallway, her blue tail waving at Tera before it too vanished…

The next batch didn’t go well either it would seem from the mass of black smoke that poured from the open window of the kitchen soon after…

At least Kira was able to drag the smoking muffins out the kitchen window before it got too bad…

With a determined look on her face Tera said, “Right. Third time’s the charm…”

The universe shivered at those words…

A bit later, Tera walked into her bedroom carrying a small silver tray in her hands. Upon it was a single solitary muffin. It was topped with red and green frosting and had a black candle upon it that burned with a small warm flame. She was dressed in a black herringbone corset, long black latex gloves and leggings with a shiny red latex skirt upon her hips. She was balanced upon red stiletto heels that made her roll her hips as she walked towards her bed.

Laying there among the sheets was her pleasure…

Justin…

Clad only in his red collar upon his neck and burrowed into the warm sheets of the bed they had shared the night before, he rested and dreamed before awaking…

Tera sat on the edge of the bed and then learned over to kiss his forehead before saying, “Rise and shine sleepyhead…”

As his eyes opened, Tera placed the silver tray with the muffin in front of him and said, “Happy Birthday Love…”

Justin was confused for a moment and then said with a chuckle, “Love… You’ve been cooking again haven’t you?”

Tera asked, “How do you know?”

He then reached a hand to her hair before pulling a blob of batter from it and saying with a smile, “Oh… I can tell…”

Tera put the tray to the side and wrapped her arms around him before kissing him lovingly and saying, “The muffin can wait until you open your presents Love…”

And it did…

But that was just fine for them both…
