Marinette’s Valentine’s Day Treats
Marinette: I love Valentine’s Day – or as I know it, la Saint Valentin! I like to make little Valentine’s Day presents for all of my friends. Sometimes I sew little things and sometimes, like today, my parents let me have free reign of our kitchen and I bake up a storm!
Marinette: I’ve been baking since I was five, so I’m pretty good at it! …Well, okay, maybe helping my parents bake is more accurate, but I definitely know my way around the kitchen. I can whip an egg into shape in no time! And no one’s a swifter sifter than me!
Marinette: …Oh dear, I think I’ve been hanging around Chat Noir too long! I’m starting to speak in puns like him!
Oh! Chat Noir is my teammate! When Paris is in danger, Ladybug (that’s my superhero alter ego) and Chat Noir spring into action, defeat the evil akuma threatening the city’s peace, and put everything back to normal. I trust him completely in battle, but… the kitchen’s another story.
At least there’s one chat I don’t mind being in the kitchen with me – Arista’s cat, Chat d’Or. He’s mischievous, but better behaved around all of these cooling treats. He’s been such a good boy, I even made a special one for him! I get the feeling Chat Noir would be a little jealous if he found out, hehe!
Marinette: Et voilà! The last of the treats is out of the oven and onto the cooling racks. But before I can pass them out, I promised one of my friends she could take pictures of everything. She loves taking photos as much as I love sewing!
Marinette: Ah! That must be Lea now!
A few minutes later…
Lea: Wow, Marinette, these look amazing!
Marinette: Thanks, Lea! I hope they taste just as good. Shall we try one?
Lea: I bet they’ll taste fantastic! Let me just get a couple more shots…
A few minutes later…
Marinette: So… uh… I-Is it time to eat yet?
Lea: Almost! I just need- Oh! What if I angle it this way? Yes! That looks awesome! Eee!
Marinette: W-Wow! These are incredible! It’s like my desserts got their own glamour shots! You’re really talented, Lea!
Lea: Thanks! So… umm… Can we try them out?
