I'm about to fall asleep X__X
“Si!” her voice perked up as Izzy figured out what she had made her, coming down to her eye level as Tassi’s smile turned a bit into a gaze of confusion when she began speaking words in a language she had never heard of. Tassi was becoming bilingual at the mind blowing age of only 10 months. She had hit milestones that she shouldn’t have accomplished until she was almost two. But then again, Tassi wasn’t your average infant. Blessed with the blood of the Cardinal Goddess and the New God she was born to be extraordinary. While she understood more English, her mother was also taking the time to speak to her in Spanish when she was around her, so the little Goddess was learning more every day! But these words that Izzy spoke to her… she had never heard of them before!
But her curious sponge like mind was shift to whole other thing when Isis asked if she wanted ice cream! Of course she wanted ice cream! “SI!” Her little body jumped up with excitement as she clapped her muddy hands together. While Tassi loved… basically everything, two things she loved the most, her family and ice cream! Her eyes darted upward towards the sky, and just by looking at the shades of orange that were lingering above them, she knew it meant that dinner was going to be soonish. Which meant… mommy was going to be mad if she knew she had ice cream with Izzy. “Izzy…” Tassi whispered, carefully scooting over towards Isis as she leaned in on her tippy toes, trying to whisper in her ears. “No mommy, tay?.” She whispered, not wanting mommy to know she was about to eat ice cream before dinner.
Isis leaned closer to the little toddler, and conspiratorially whispered back. "No mommy, I promise." She plopped a big fat kiss on Tassi's cheek and scooped her up in her arms, propping her on her hip.
Out of instinct, she gently nuzzled her cousin's soft wispy hair. "Sometimes cousins get to have secrets, and sometimes we get to spoil each other. So nobody needs to know about this...but maybe next time we'll bring your siblings in on the secret. Unless you want this to be our special thing, in which case, we'll keep it super duper secret, okay?"
It was a moderately quick walk from the gardens into the truly spacious kitchen. Isis set Tassi down atop one of the granite countertops and held a finger up to her lips, indicating for her to stay quiet. She walked over to the cabinets and went up on tip-toe as she struggled to get two bowls out for them. She moved silently through the kitchen and gathered all the necessary supplies: sprinkles, candy toppings, whipped cream, spoons, and then finally she walked over to the industrial-sized freezer and opened it up, allowing Tassi to peek in from her perch atop the island counter directly across from it.
"Which flavor do you want?" Isis stage-whispered, her eyes alight with mischief.
