”Tch.” Watching the prince cross his arms in an almost triumphant manner, he drops his hands, releasing his grip on the other and tilting his head in doubt of Soma’s words. Seeing as the entirety of his birthday seemed to deprive him of dessert, sweetened delicacies were his primary concern.
"How did you get it?" He demands, skeptic. The absence of his butler made this scenario terribly suspicious. "You couldn’t possibly have made it—”
His smile keeps though the prince rolls his eyes at the boy’s distrust. “Ahh! Give me a bit more credit, Ciel. You deserved straight from the heart. Of course I made it! … with agni’s help mayb—All on my own! Just for you! Come on, Ciel, you have to trust me. I wouldn’t try and give it to you if I didn’t think that it was good.”
There was still a part of him that wished to impress his younger friend after all. And what better way with something that he so truly could not resist.
"…" No, but he sure as Hell isn’t going to admit that he misses you.
He perks at the mention of cake. Cautiously, he stops squirming about, turning to face the prince with childish curiousity. A moment of intense scrutiny follows, and he raises a brow, delicate hands fumbling lightly at the material of the other’s attire. “… Well? Where is it?”
The royal’s arms reluctantly release his little friend before crossing over his chest. That familiar look of excitement spread across the prince’s face as that tiny spark of interest became apparent on the stern Earl.
"Well when I arrived I thought that you’d be in your study being a workaholic as usual, but for once in your life you weren’t to be found there, so I left a piece of it there before I came looking for you."
A familiar voice disturbs the manor’s miserable silence. In both anticipation and horror, the child turns, only to find himself immediately locked in an embrace. “—!”
"Shut up…!" He protests against the remark, fuming; still, behind his petulant pout (and unwelcoming shoves), he’s pleased to see Soma again.
"Don’t tell me to shut up! After so long, is that really the first thing you want me to hear out of you? Besides… You better be nice if you think you’ve got any chance at getting your birthday
