they’ve been dating for awhile but not actually engaged so enjolras takes that opportunity to drop to one knee and be like “feuilly, think of the tax benefits” and then they eat. so much. cake. and they somehow sneak some out to save for later
ahhh my friend yes thank you
feuilly is MORTIFIED because ‘wait what?’ he did not expect Enjolras to do this? at all? but enjolras is grinning and Feuilly can never say no to cakes, especially the ones with funfetti sprinkled on top.
(also the tax benefits, of course. plus they already take care of a kitten together, isn’t that what married life is?)
and they hold hands the entire time. and the cakes are really really good.
and in the middle this lady starts talking to them like ‘oh, you two look so happy together, you look like you’re glowing! I’m sure you’ll have a long and happy marriage, when is the date, if you don’t mind me asking?’
and feuilly kinda wants to admit enjolras looks like he’s glowing always, and feuilly just really really likes the cake actually he has sparkly sprinkles all over his hands and face that would be the glow.
it takes him a few hours to process what actually happened. and that he’s engaged? to enjolras?
(he cries a little when they get home. so they eat the leftover cake for dinner and talk about if they want an actual wedding and in the end it’s just a tiny thing, with their friends, not even formal dress or anything. but there’s definitely a cake from that store.)
I didn’t end up doing much more with this. This is my first successful gouache painting and I think I’m in love with this medium! 😀
