The two women began cooking, Venus did the cooking (as Mina is head of the family) and Sonata did the baking (as Melody was the previous head). Venus is singing as music plays within the kitchen, Venus plays music and sings while she cooks. She's a good singer. Sonata bakes in silence. Not bothering to join her cousin. Venus sings, dances and sways as she cooks. Sonata moves with grace and fluidness as she bakes. Sonata had her new apron wrapped around her front. Her apron being white with dull raspberry butterflies and blue music notes on it. Kneading dough has always been a great practice, Sonata thought as she folds and bounds the dough that she had made rolls, breads, biscuits and other pastries. She has created dinner rolls a many, enough to feed an army. She's even made savory foods that involved baking. She's also made large pies of plenty. Of every kind she could think of, classic and her own recipes.
People began filling the house and the music for entertaining guests have begun to play, as well as chatter amongst them. Some people that are around the two women's age have come to the kitchen. Venus chatted with them as she cooked, they were all her friends anyway. Sonata remained mute. "I take it Sonata still isn't talking," said a new voice. A smooth and silky female voice, Sonata looks at the new visitor, she sees a beautiful dark expresso woman with short obsidian hair, petite body and frame leaning on the counter her hands threaded together with her head resting on the top, her arms supporting her, dressed in a black alter-top with a black tulip skirt and black high heeled chunky heeled boots. Her beautiful blazing blue cat like eyes looking at the mute girl. She wears no jewelry but her nails are painted shimmering black. Her full lips are painted black and her eyes are cat eye makeup of black and silver, making her blue eyes all the more striking. Her nails almost resembles that of claws. "I don't exactly blame her...having your mother as her guardian." Said the girl. Sonata had placed a crystallized cup filled with beautiful sparkling berries, white chocolate and buttercream frosting with sprinkles before her newest guest. "I see you agree with me." said the dark skinned girl, Sonata only gave her a blank look and went back to baking. Venus glares at the woman, "I don't like how you're talking about my mom Iris." Venus glowered at the other woman but she only held a smile as she picked up the desert cup and began to snack on it, each bite making a beautiful chime as if it were a bell. I made them correctly, Sonata thought as she continued to bake, "What? I'm right. How long has it been she said anything? Or smiled for that matter?" Iris says as she receives glares from the other people there, her black cat hopping onto her shoulders as she moved holding her arms in a 'I don't know' motion. Her feline familiar purring contently upon her master's shoulders. Sonata gives the feline a roasted rainbow fish shaped pastry which the feline quickly devoured. Making the cat purr all the louder as the pastry may have been filled with fruits, herbs and spices of the very ocean itself, one such ingredient is Fish Weed. A plant that is the same heartiness as the fish in question but is of the plant family. Completely safe for vegans and vegetarians alike. Cats love it. as it can hold up to all sorts of variants of fish, be it Tuna, trout, flounder amongst others. Sonata has used an entire bouquet of Fish Weed (as it is multiple species of fish) to make all the fish pastries. She has made an entire tray of fish shaped pastries. But only gave one of the pastries to the cat.
"I'm surprised Mina managed to convince Sonata to do anything for her after everything she's done." Iris laments as she is given another dessert cup with a dry laugh, "You're cute to believe I was given a choice." a low an almost murmuring female voice answers, Iris almost dropped her dessert cup as she knows who just spoke and was clearly incredibly startled, her familiar just as startled. Iris looks at Sonata while everyone looks at her, "what's with you?" Asks a woman in a beautiful red evening gown, "You mean to tell me that you didn't hear that?" Iris demands and Sonata gives her and only her a coy smirk upon her face. Only for it to disappear as Venus turns her gaze to her, "I heard Sonata speak!" Iris shouts and everyone looks at her with both disbelief and shock. Sonata has not spoken in well over 10 years. They all look at Sonata whom had resumed baking with silence and grace. Venus took her attention as she placed freshly baked pies upon the pie stands. Sonata turns to her cousin and with weariness asked, "is what Iris says true?" the muted stone faced girl gave a slow but firm nod and went back into baking.
Everyone went into uproar as she does.
When the cooking and baking had finished. The two women walked out of the kitchen, everyone hounding the red and white headed girl to speak to them but only to be met with grave silence. Especially her cousin who had lived with her for most of their childhoods ever since her family's gruesome and tragic ends. Venus then confronted Iris and demanded to know what Sonata had said, "she just answered me when I said I was surprised that Mina convinced her to do anything for her after all that she's done to her," Iris defends herself seeing that pink energy is beginning to surge from the angry blonde, "She said and I quote! 'You're cute to believe I was given a choice.' that's it!" Iris roars as she is getting ganged up on by multiple others her age. Multiple other guests are now watching as they heard the distressed young woman explain what she had just experienced. "What is this about?" Mina's steely voice cut through the arguing and demanding of Iris. Venus glared with fury at her mother, "Iris heard Sonata speak! She won't speak to any of us but she won't hesitate to answer Iris when she made her usual snarky comments!" Venus screamed magical energy coming off her in waves. Making the other people tremble as Venus is incredibly powerful. It doesn't help that Venus is very in tune with her emotions; making her magic all the more powerful. Mina stares down the mute girl silently demanding if what her daughter says is true, the pokerfaced young woman looks at her aunt, dull raspberry meeting steely and gives a singular solid nod.
All hell breaks loose.
The screaming, the shouting, the magic going haywire. Sonata dodges the wild charges of magic that are flying everywhere. Iris's familiar goes from her shoulders to the girl in question, who gave another fresh fish treat in their mouth. Just to silence them and not bother them with the shit show that is happening right before their very eyes. Sonata just remained calm as a cucumber as she refuses to give in nor allow herself to be intimidated by all the screaming.
