"Stuffed chicken, pigeon, and duck with flavored rice, eggplants, grape leaves, and cabbage leaves are stuffed with rice made with meat soup, Mulukhiyah soup is also made with meat in it, hawawshi bread, Okra soup, as for dessert, I made Om Ali alongside Knafeh"
You finish after pointing out at every dish on the table in front of the pharaoh with a proud smile on your face
Amenhotep is surprised at the feast, wondering how you made all of that.
He doesn't even know those dishes, except for the Mulukhiyah soup.
Plus, you were whining to him a few days ago about not having some ingredients.
"Are you not going to eat, my pharaoh?" You ask, smirking at him.
"I can't help but be impressed, but how did you come up with such meals" you chuckle nervously.
"Well, I had a lot of free time on my hands, so I decided to experiment a bit" you explain.
That's a lie, your mother is the one who taught you how to make those meals.
The main reason why you became a good cook is that you and Nadar used to make meals for each other as a form of gifts.
Actually, the feast you made consists of Nadar's favorite food.
"Eat with me" the pharaoh orders.
"Eat with me, if this food is poisoned, then we shall die together" you huff and roll your eyes.
"This is the most delicious thing I have ever tasted in my life"
Certainly, Amenhotep admits that it is the first time in his life to taste such types of dishes.
His taste buds felt the blessing of your food in his mouth the moment his tongue first tasted it.
"Considering that you have liked the feast, now where is my crystal"
You outstretch your right hand, waiting for your award.
Instead, Amenhotep chuckles and crosses his arms.
"Tell me where you live, and I shall send the crystal to your family as you are going to stay here"
You frown at him in disbelief.
"No, I need to take the crystal myself and go back to my family, my pharaoh," you say, starting to feel frustrated.
"Oh your not going anywhere, my dear" he grasps your hands within his ones.
"You are going to stay here and become my wife, and bear me many children" you remove your hands away from him.
"If you don't give me the crystal right now, i-" he cuts you off thinking that you are threatening him.
Which made him shout out to his guards.
"Guards seize her, and lock her up!"
And that's exactly what happens, you get grabbed by the guards.
"What are you going to do with me?" you demand, feeling scared.
After all, your only chance of escaping which happens to be the dagger is left in your chamber.
Amenhotep grins, leaning towards your face.
"You will be locked up for a while, as I prepare for our wedding"
