Here's an excerpt:
"Remember when we first met, and I said I never ate replicator food before?"
Freya nodded as he guided her into a chair at the table.
"That means I can cook a little, and I thought we could have a nice peaceful night together without talking about work or taking down the government. Just a quiet and romantic night." He slid the handheld from her grasp and set it on the counter.
"I'm not sure I know how to be romantic."
"Let's try it." He gave her a passionate kiss then sat in his seat. "You never take a moment to relax and I thought this might help."
He tried to be covert as she dipped the spoon in the soup and took her first bite. Time slowed as he watched the expressions unfold on her face. The corners of her lips turned down, and a weight settled in his chest. She didn't like it.
As he looked down to his own bowl, he heard her make a soft noise. His gaze shot to her face in the expression he saw there made his chest warm.
"So you like it?"
"Yes I do, I've never tasted anything like this before."
