EᔕᔕᕼI ᑕOᑎT. ~ ⚪♫⚪ ~ 'Oh Ainhara, you always seem to know what to do...' Esshi chuckles. "Thank you very much. Have you done the Queen Mother's flower arrangements?" "Yes, all of them have been watered and now they are being placed around the palace." Esshi nods. "Good. Thank you very much. Carry on then."
~ ⚪♫⚪ ~ The florist smiles and leaves as Esshi places the vase down on a clean counter as well as the inkpot and quill while staring at the paper. 'What should I say...?' she wonders as she hears the meat sizzle. Bale is washing the carrots and potatoes and chopping them into medium-sized chunks. Esshi blinks and smiles. 'Got it!' Folding a paper in half she writes on the paper, using her best calligraphy.
~ ⚪♫⚪ ~ When she's done, she places the quill in the inkpot and gently blows the paper. 'Perfect!' Esshi beams. "Bael? Where do you keep the serving trolleys?" "In the back!" he says as he pours in the ingredients into the paella pan and mixes gently.
~ ⚪♫⚪ ~ Esshi goes to the back room and sees a rose-silver serving tray with wheels which she rolls out, placing the bouquet and note on it while waiting for Bael and his team to finish cooking. Bael smiles that proud smile before pouring some soup into a bowl and placing it on the serving tray. "Thank you, Bael." "Not a problem. Do give our Queen my regards." he faces his working staff. "If they're done, bring them over!"
~ ⚪♫⚪ ~ Almost instantly, the chefs bring small plates of their Queen's favourite treats and top it off, a fresh brew of Jasmine Pearls. "Thank you all so much." Esshi says gratefully. "It's our pleasure." A chefs says as Bael claps. "Well done, everyone. Now we best get on the Queen Mother's meals. Go started! I will see Lady Esshi out." Esshi covers the food as Bael opens the door for her to leave. She is stunned to see Ainhara there.
~ ⚪♫⚪ ~ "Oh my, Bael!" Ainhara smiles at him. "You certainly worked hard." "The life of a Chef." he beams. "When you're done, do come by again. I'll have some meals waiting for you!" he winks at them and returns to the kitchen. "The shipments?" Esshi asks. "All are being presented, documented and stored away by the Queen Mother." Ainhara says. When she sees the flowers, she smiles and the words on Esshi's note makes her smile even more. "Let's make way." Ainhara says as Esshi pushes the tray behind her, making their way for the young Queen's chamber.
