The fires of what had just come to light have been put on the back burner as it is clear that Sonata will not speak to answer anyone. Especially her aunt who was screaming the most and is threatening her with all sorts of punishment only to be met with the silence, that the young woman has learned to weaponize. Multiple other powerful families are at this party but Sonata made it clear that she isn't interested. The woman is getting all sorts of questions but is met with silence. She just walks around the dance floor as her aunt will hound her to socialize even though it is a known fact that she doesn't talk. She would've happily remained in her room but her aunt literally forced her out of there by banging on the door and using her own magic and her power as head of the household to drag her out of her only sanctuary. She goes back into the kitchen. More to bake, for sanity's sake, Sonata thought as she went back to baking.
As soon as she got to making an entire tower of cupcakes, her aunt arrives. Sonata remains silent as she begins to bake once again. Not trying to hide the fact that she isn't going to get near her aunt.
Mina had begun asking her niece question only to be met with silence. "Why won't you speak to us? We're your family." she states, Sonata didn't show it but she had to almost literally bite her tongue and use everything in her not to throw the tray in her hands at the other woman's head.
Sonata continues baking despite what her aunt is spouting. Mina is visibly getting frustrated as Sonata isn't reacting to her words. Just continuing to bake. Adding more force and power as Mina continues to speak. Sonata actively trying not to absolutely go nuclear on the other woman that is regretfully her mother's sister (she has checked when everyone within the house was well within the dream realm). Mina can hear the amount of force being used as she makes the dough for doughnuts. The older woman has taken a few steps back as she needs to have a nice berth before the younger woman throws a knife at her. Although no one would blame her at this point. Her cousin is well aware that if anyone should hold a grudge against her mother and disown The Musa name, it is her. If not disown, fight for the throne. Sonata just continues to bake. Reminding the head of the family that she is not happy to see her. Which confuses the older woman to no end.
As she does not see what she had done wrong.
Because why would she? She had taken her neice in when her entire family had died. Had given her a roof over her head. So why is she so angry with her?
The girl continues to bake, mixing and kneading with such force that everyone is surprised that she didn't break the counter's surface. "Would it kill you to actually speak to me? Just once?" Mina complains her head leaning back, "we are family after all." this caused the girl to stop what she's doing and threw a knife right at the wall, it had cut the ribbon, that has caused the updo to completely become undone, the bluebell pins is caught within the blade within the wall. Her hair cascading down her form as if made of pure liquid sunlight or gold. Her steel eyes and calm composure shows her shock and her eyes are completely wide and contracts to that of pinpricks as there isn't a single strand of her hair cut when she had thrown the knife, it had only gotten her intended target. Her hair ribbon and bluebell hairpins.
She leaves without another word, the message of her paitence running incredibly thin, finally getting through to her. During some of her baking breaks, where the dough needs to rest/rise and after she had cleaned all of her tools (scrubbed them to the point of spotless/brand spanking new). She leans back on the counter and begins to snack on a fluffy and soft cookie, filled to the very brim with fresh fruits. Making music with every bite. Especially when she has bitten into one of the fruits in question.
As soon as Venus has reappeared into the kitchen, to check on dinner, her eyes is wide as she sees a thirteen tier cake. That is standing proudly at ten-twenty feet tall. With her standing on a crystal stepping stool where she can see all of the other steps surrounding the entirety of the cake. The platter is dull raspberry and floating in the air, just as Venus enters. She goes in with a hefty sigh as she has seen what has been going on. As she goes in, she sees all of the desserts and pastries stacked upon counters in baskets, platters and much more. It is a pretty much a screeching message of what kind of mental angish that Mina and Venus had put the girl through. How is she still baking? Venus thought as she took a taste of what is going to serve to our guests, she summoned the seasonings shakers and associated them with bits of music. Some with more spice than others. I definitely would've cracked if I had to knead all that dough...how are her muscles not burning and her arms not aching? Venus thought as the pair of women practically danced around one another.
Sonata and Venus continued to create a feast. It's up to Mina's standards as the young women are reprensenting The Musa House and there's going to be hell to pay if they fuck it all up in any way. Sonata knows this better than anyone as she has been punished for every single thing that Mina says are unacceptable, Sonata is still silent even though she is going through agonizing pain.
Venus is singing as she continues to cook as Sonata is practically making music as she bakes. Sonata has made due with everything that was provided to her, especially the freezer and fridge. "Sonata. Do you mind if I move some stuff?" Venus asked as Sonata moves near the fridge, she using her wooden spoon, tapped thrice on the side of the fridge. Everything that she has made completely cleared shelves and moved around in order for Venus to finish whatever she had. Venus and Sonata are in dance with the music that the pair is making as they make the feast. Venus sending out Hors d'oeuvre and mini snacks as the main food is coming together along with everything that Sonata has created meant to come with Venus's Hors d'oeuvres.
Once the dinner was served. The women walk to their places at the table. Which Venus has set up with the snap of her fingers. Mina had to fix up her hair from the confrontation with her niece, although not hard it was painful. The hairpins have been damaged from the knife and she had to get a different ribbon. Sonata seated to the left of her aunt and Venus to the right of her mother, Venus as successor and Sonata as former. Sonata begins to feast after saying grace, still silent throughout the entirety of the meal. Much to the annoyance of every guest there. "Sonata, dear...the covenent is here. Including your favorite Coven Sister," Mina tries. Sonata's dull eyes look to the important figures in question. Her skin is olive, her eyes are sky blue, her long hair of black and violet done in a beautiful braid updo. Dressed in a dark red gown with a large oval pendant around her neck. She waves shyly, dull raspberry eyes turn glacial cold. Sending every living creature chills down their spines. "Did you forget that she has been put on her blacklist after trying to completely overhaul her garden?" Venus asked, looking pointedly at her mother.
Who slumped her head in slight embarassment. She had forgotten completely about that incident. But the girl didn't forget. She never forgets. She can't afford to. She continued eating the feast before her. The chatting of all of the nobles and elite class continued. Despite the girl is mute and refusing to go into even small talk with over two-thirds of the guests.
It didn't take long for Venus to steer the atmosphere back to that of jovial conversation. The mute girl although silent, she isn't being hostile. A good sign. Possibly the only one that they would be able to get for the rest of the night.
