The Hogwarts kitchens are located directly under the Great Hall, down the same staircase that leads to the Hufflepuff Common Room. It contains long tables; food must simply be placed upon the tables in the kitchens and it magically appears on the corresponding tables in the Great Hall. The kitchens are staffed by over one hundred house-elves. Helga Hufflepuff brought the house-elves to work in the kitchens, as a way of ensuring they could work without being abused. To gain access to the kitchens, one must tickle the pear painted in a portrait of a bowl of fruit (it squirms and giggles), which then turns into a green doorknob.
Frannie, to say the least, looks like she's going to be ill regardless of the apology Roselia throws her way. She casts her sister an anxious look but no longer looks like she's ready to bolt. Clearing her throat, Frannie moves around the massive counters the elves have to prepare food, and sits on a stool near Cassandra gingerly, taking the moment to fix her hair, pulling it out of her eyes and into a messy bun at the top of her head. There's a lump in her throat she's barely able to swallow down as she busies herself by fiddling with the hem of her Hufflepuff sweater sleeves. "Okay," she accepts, quietly, in response to Roselia. "It's - it's ok."
"My entire existence is all you could come up with, Tobias?" she snarked, after having checked on her sister; it's not okay, and she is going to make sure Tobias knows it — eventually, when Frannie isn't there to see it, because there's all likelihood it's going to end up being a hex where the sun don't shine. "You're losing your touch. Not that you ever really had one, not with me."

Tobias pulled a face. "As if I ever wanted to touch you." He scoffed at the play on words. "Besides, if I were to list everything wrong with you, I'd never stop. Your entire existence was all encompassing." Tobias waved it off, grabbing a fork. "And I can't help it, Rosie. I bring out the best in people." He smirked at the snarky comment bringing a bite of salad up to his mouth.
Lady Roselia Tudor
"You're lucky I'm not in the mood to stab you with something as ugly and disfigured as you," Roselia snapped back at Tobias in result of him calling her that dreaded nickname. She had forgotten what Frannie had said and was already busying herself collecting the water from the returned house elf. She took a sip and scrunched up her face, turning around and pouring the water on the house elf. "Where'd you get this? From a swamp? This tastes disgusting, get me better water."
Frannie squirms in her seat, thoroughly uncomfortable by the quips her cousins and sister were exchanging. Frannie flinches when Roselia pours the water over the elf, instinctively standing up as she assesses the situation. Whatever she does, she doesn't plan to let her cousin get away with such ill treatment towards the elves. "Don't do that," she frowns. "Roselia. I'm not - I'm not joking. They work hard every day, all day, for us. The least we - you - can do, is treat them with respect."
"Oh yay," He happily took a cookie and ate it in two bites, "Are these your homemade cookies Freya?" he asked after he swallowed the last bite, grabbing another, "These are like the best things ever," He told her happily, before looking over at the two boys, "Oh hi! I'm Daejeon, although you probably know that already," he said sheepishly. "Nice to meet you too,"
"I'm Minjae," he said, wrapping his arms around Minhyuk protectively, more like possessively really. "I agree, great cookies, Freya."

Minhyuk leaned into Minjae's hold, a bright smile painted on his lips. "Oh! I almost forgot." Min announced excitedly going to grab something from his robes. "I made you all something." He grinned, handing out a candy and note to the three. "I've kept them all throughout the week because I didn't know when I'd see you guys. I have one for Felix too." Min explained shyly. Minjae got one that said "Is that a chocolate frog or is my heart just leaping for you?" with a chocolate frog, of course. Freya got "Are you a sugar quill? Because you're just so sweet!" with said candy and a cute drawing. And Daejeon got one that said "I love you already and wand to know more about you~" with a chocolate wand attached. He'd wait to give Felix his whenever he saw him. "Sorry, I don't know your favorite candies yet, but I hope you like them."

Minhyuk sighed, but nodded nonetheless. Man, he was so uncomfortable right then. He'd have to eat the cake fast and get out of there. Grabbing the items from the fridge, he turned back to Minjae. "Here." He offered, setting them down on the table.
"Thank you," he muttered, setting the pan down on the counter. With a spell, he moved the cake from the pan onto the platter and began decorating it as so, quietly tsking to himself when he wasn't happy with something and un-did it. "Get plates and spoons." He was still hard and still highly irritated. Technically, it was his fault for ignoring the cake in the first place or even starting the "game" but who's to say he's not allowed to enjoy himself.

"Sir, yes, sir!" Minhyuk grinned and saluted Minjae like a soldier would before going to get the plates and forks. He came back beside Minnie and placed the dishes down. "Anything else I can get for you?" He teased lightly.
Minjae couldn't stop himself from accidentally blurting out, "Your dick," but he laughed it off as if he hadn't just suggested they fuck and continued decorating the cake. "Thank you," he said. "We have to let it dry for awhile," he instructed. "And then we will eat it."

Minhyuk blushed red, and nodded, not being able to say anything. Minjae was so blunt and it just got to him sometimes. There was a small part of Minhyuk that envied that - being able to say whatever and not worry about the consequences. "Okay, we'll wait." He squeaked out, managing to produce a sweet smile.
