12. The first fundraiser for the months is coming up and times to get your bake on. We are making cupcakes and lots of them so master chefs be ready and for the rest us time to eat some icing.
"So, tell me again why are you going to be away for the rest of the day?" Colton asked, his eyes fixed on me. I was feeling way too self conscious but I wasn't going to be rude and ask him to stop staring, so I just stared at the ground.
"Because, we're baking. We meaning the girls from Theta and me. No boys allowed, sorry Colt." I said with a sigh. Sure, I had been avoiding him for weeks now but I was just busy. Or so I told myself.
"I can bake." He pointed out.
"No boys allowed." I pressed, finally looking into his eyes. "I promise I'll make it up to you."
"Sure." He said, shaking his head. "What's the money for anyways?"
"A fundraiser." I shrugged. I didn't have time for this. "Look, Colton, I'll try to get them done just in time for the Star Trek marathon tonight. Is that okay?"
"You don't have to rush your sorority stuff to spend time with me..." He said, "But I'd appreciate that."
"Of course. That's why you're my best friend." I said, giving him a kiss on the cheek. "I'll see you later, Colt."
I rushed into Theta house, staring cautiously at the bushes because last time Scott and Liam were hiding in them. Nope, they weren't there this time. I looked up to the trees (because DUH, that's the place for a peeping-Tom to be at) and surprisingly, they weren't there either. I smirked feeling triumphant. Maybe they weren't here today.
"Bee! You made it!" Cloe said with a cheeky grin, flour spilled all over her clothes.
"Of course I'm here. You know how I feel towards baking." I said with a smile. I truly loved baking.
"Would you mind helping me with the next batch?" She asked, balancing a bowl filled with cake batter and a try of cupcakes with the other hand.
"Absolutely. Let me get that for you." I said, grabbing the bowl with my hands.
"We're here!" Aria's voice resonated from the entrance, a noise of paper bags followed. It was Grace and Scotland, holding bags filled with groceries.
"And we brought more supplies." Grace pointed out. "So, when do we get to pour icing over them?"
"Not now, Grace." Aria shook her head, "We need for them to be at room temperature, otherwise they turn into a mess."
"I'd still eat them anyways." Scotland shrugged, putting the bags in the kitchen counter. "So, I was thinking that after this we could have a Marvel marathon, you know, you can never have enough guys wearing spandex on a shiny LCD screen."
"I could get on board with that." I said, a sly smile plastered on my face.
"As much as I'd love to see Chris Evans's naked torso on the TV, not tonight." Grace said. "I have fancy dinner plans with my brother."
"Your brother's in town?" Cloe asked curiously.
"You guys are so gross. It's not cool to lust over my brother when you're talking to me." Grace shuddered at the thought.
"But Joe /is/ attractive." I confessed.
"No sir, I'm choosing to say this conversation never happened."
"Girls, stop talking about boys." Aria said.
"Of course, because you already have a leading man in your life!" Scotland complained, her fingers were dripping with icing.
"Scottie!" Aria took the icing bowl away from her hands. "We have to save it for the cupcakes!"
"Sorry." Scotland shrugged, washing her hands.
"Cloe, you should get that batch out of the oven... before they burn." I suggested, preparing the next batch already.
"I don't know how I put up with you guys..." Grace said, faking disappointment. "Well I do. We're all pretty damn awesome and people are going to fight over those cupcakes tomorrow."
"You got that right." Aria winked at her.
