Cupcake Kissin’ 51 – Alex Ankarr
The first thing, then, the first thing – or maybe the second, because the flowers should count, Sam reckons so – is the fluffy toy. Or, indeed, are the fluffy toys, because they are plural.
Of course, Caspar isn’t dumb. He caught on pretty quick, when the evil idea first entered his two buddies – ex-buddies’ – heads. And of course he warned them off the notion, with explicit instructions that if they so much as even thought of doing anything so dumb as telling Mack to court Caspar, if he wanted to get anywhere with him, then he would – Well, he hadn’t gone into much detail, since he’d been too many sheets to the wind to really truly come up with anything creative enough to meet his own high standards. But they know him well enough by now, to interpret from glares and meaningful eyebrow twitches, he feels.
So there’s no way that Mack knows, knows about the unspoken passive-aggressive requirements that Caspar has specified, the fences and obstacles he’s erected in his mind, the hoops that simply must be jumped through, before he will even begin to consider that perhaps Mack has earned him, can deserve him. Perhaps he’s going a little far, but he feels remarkably stubborn.
What has he had, two and a half kisses and half a pound of flirtation and a little friendliness, one stoned afternoon? That’s not so much for a very handsome, famous celebrity to be so very sure of him. Unless he thinks that that description alone is enough to justify so much assurance. It’s not, though. Mack needs to know that it’s not.
Caspar puts it out of his mind, though, when he examines the toys. Or rather, it’s driven out. If they’d been delivered at his apartment (and if only!) then he might still have had the presence of mind to be brooding. But no, they come to the bakery. And when he’s on the counter, too. Except he’s in the back having a chat and a laugh with Horace, when the shriek goes up.
