I woke up and checked my phone. I had a message from Hana.

The Instagram posts are cringy.

I sent her a message back: You're just jealous.

Tao posted a picture of Kandy and I sleeping with the caption "My Girls" I smiled.

"Good, you're awake. I made pancakes." Tao peeked into the door.

"How long have you been up?"

"A couple of hours, I went grocery shopping. They had bath bombs!"

"Oh god, how many did you buy?"

"That's not important, I made pancakes!"

"What do you want to drink? I bought tapioca pearls, I could make you bubble tea."

"That'd take you too long. I want you to eat with me, so milk is fine."

"So, did you sleep good?"

"You should know. Taking pictures of me sleeping," I pointed at him with my fork.

"You just looked so cute, I had too."

"It's okay, you look cute in your sleep too," I finished eating my breakfast, "I didn't know you were so good at cooking. Why do you spoil me so much?"

"Because you're my girl," He kissed my forehead," Want to take a bath? I got way too many bath bombs."


"Woah, trippy," I said.

"We should put two in, it is a big tub."

"Good thinking," I sat in one end of the tub.

"Intergalactic bathtub!" Tao exclaimed, practically jumping in the other end, "Hey what scents do you like?"

"Fruity stuff or vanilla."

"Vanilla it is!" He opened a cabinet next to the bathtub filled with candles and lit a vanilla one.

"On what occasion have you needed that many candles before?"

"My lonely baths. Do you want jets?"


"Music or TV?"


"K-pop or C-pop?"

"K-pop, the jets made the colors go away," I pointed out.

"There's bubble bath, I only have cotton candy scented though."

"Yes!" I poked his leg with my foot under the water, causing him to jump.

He put the bubbles on his face, "Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry bathtub! Do you want a foot massage?"

"Did I die and go to heaven? I've never done a good thing in my life to deserve you, Zitao."

"Who says you haven't? You suffered so much with you parents, so I'm going to spoil you rotten, baby girl," He grabbed my foot, "This little piggy went to the market, this little piggy stayed home, this little piggy had roast beef, this little piggy had none, and this little piggy went wee wee wee all the way home!"

"You went from daddy to baby boy in point five seconds there."

"Don't call me that."

"What? Daddy?"

"No, don't call me baby boy."

" Then don't call me cute!"

"But that's what you are."


"Are you nervous for tonight?" He started on my other foot.

"Increasingly so."

"I can make you feel better."

"What do you mean?"

"Bath bombs aren't the only thing I bought a lot of," he smirked.
