“A picnic doesn’t sound like a bad idea. Of course we would have to get everything set up. I’m sure that wouldn’t take that long to set up, after all there really isn’t much that we would have to set up for a picnic. We just have to get the food and possibly a drink prepared. Let’s see…” Twilight walked over and was grabbing a pen and paper. Spike probably knew what this was going to mean. It meant that there was going to be lists involved, which was typical Twilight style. It was rather ironic that she had said at one point that she was going to try to cut down on using lists. That was her new years resolution for last year. Did that end well? Not even close. She was writing down stuff that they needed for the picnic. First off being a decent sized picnic basket. The second would be food, which would most likely be some form of sandwiches. Twilight could create those really easily, and she would, after finishing off the list that was.
“Here you go Spike. There’s the list of everything that we need. If we want to get everything done in a reasonable manner I suggest we each take on an individual task or two. I’ll make the sandwiches while you find the picnic basket. I’m not sure where that is though. I think the last time that I saw it it was in the kitchen somewhere. You can check in there while I make these sandwiches alright?” With that Twilight would make her way into the kitchen and grabbed the bread that was on the counter. Untwisting the tie she sat out a few slices of bread. It would come out to be about 10 sandwiches, which sliced in half would make 20. Surely that would be more than enough, right? She went over and grabbed some lettuce and cheese from the kitchen and was starting to stack some of it on the various slices of bread. It felt nice having Spike back, and now they were working like a family, which always felt nice.
As she was continuing to make the sandwiches she was starting to develop a rhythm, knowing to put the cheese on the bottom and putting the lettuce on top before putting another slice of bread on top. It was rather silly and Twilight knew it. She got that done rather quickly and grabbed a knife from the knife block, where all of those were staying in. She manipulated it using her magic and was quickly slicing the sandwiches in half diagonally. It was just the way things were done. She turned around to see where spike was and to ask if he had done some of the stuff that was on the list. “Did you find the Picnic basket yet Spike? Don’t worry if you haven’t yet, it’s not like we’re in some sort of hurry or anything like that. I’m pretty sure we have a bunch of time before it gets dark.”
Spike nodded. “Sure thing Twilight.” he said moving to the kitchen to find the picnic basket. Twilight in her usual fashion had him help with putting certain things like pots and pans away in some of the cabinets in the kitchen and checked in there in case Twilight had it in one of the misc. stuff in one of the cabinets. He opened one after another with no luck finding the right one that had the basket in it.
“No, I haven’t yet…It should be in one of these cabinets in here. I coulda sworn…Oh, here we go! Got it!” Spike said grabbing the picnic basket out of the cabinet that had various small lunchboxes and a mini cooler. Closing the cabinet door he would place the basket by Twilight who was now slicing the sandwiches diagonally. “Is there anything else we’ll need Twilight?” he asked.
