The Vaesteri family was among Milirevi's most important families. For generations, they've put their sorcerous prowess at service of the city and in the name of the Daliath religion. Their contributions were so notorious that they earned multiple awards and titles for it. Including the Dal-kanan-Dal (the blessing that multiples blessings), an honor granted to a single digit of families around the known worlds. The family ran a temple that was large, beautiful, a historical landmark, and a shelter to those in need.
"Not professional, no. But if you ask him, he might. He does love cooking for lots of people..."
"Uh... in this case lots of people can be easily dozens, if we only count these kids-"
"It's okay." The kid adds a tad hastily.
"I mean, it's the sort of thing that gets on the level of paying him for his trouble."
"Maybe your father would like to give a cooking class at the temple?" Feliaris asks 'Chelle.
"Dad regularly cooks enough that there's leftovers for days, even with me and 'Chelle eating three or four portions in our first sitting of the meal."
"I'll ask him, I'm pretty sure he'd be delighted to."
"Perfect, can I get your phone numbers then?"
"This has to be the fastest anyone's asked me for my number," Inara comments coyly.
"Actually, I think that prize still goes to the girl with the atrocious chat up lines."
Still, 'Chelle's pulling out a pad and pen and jotting their numbers down. "My Dad's as well," she says as she holds the piece of paper out.
Teronmas takes it, without a second comment from the chat up girl. One of the other minders who-was-totally-not-paying-attention fidgets uncomfortably.
"Thank you, second place is still pretty good where I am standing," he waves the little piece of paper before putting it away.
"I think," says a second child-minder, "we are ready to go to the temple then."
"Hope to hear from you soon then," 'Chelle says with a grin. "We should head anyway, Ina, I promised Dad we'd do the shopping on the way home."
Inara groans good-naturedly. "I forgot about that." Recovers to smile charmingly at the triplets and their entourage. "Pleasure meeting you. I look forward to continuing our friendship."
"Likewise!" Teronmas says and they also move to leave.
The two girls laugh and wave, and vanish off...to do whatever.
Parafi stays close to the triplets.
Part way through, Fenrad has to go back to the theater to retrieve something. But they can make their way back without incident.
Parafi keeps watching everything.
Fenrad comes back, happier than Parafi has ever seen him, he and his brothers talk in whispers.
He's curious, but isn't going to try and pry.
Overall it was a fun outing.
The triplets talk to their grandparents about 'Chelle and Inara. They find it delightful that they met a couple of nice young ladies (when does something stops counting as a hint?).
Calls are made.
Aaren would be absolutely delighted to do a cooking class! Or just cook for people! Either or, he's just very happy to do any kind of cooking really!
Would he mind terrible to make a small scale demo? Cooking something for a small group while teaching them what they are doing?
He would be utterly delighted to do that.
Great! They can settle a time, and they will provide a place. And the test drive pupils.
Ten pupils is probably a good starting point? Not too many, and Aaren's not actually taught like this before...
That sounds like a good number to start with. They should be able to find that many people interested.
