Title: Mind those Manners
Summary: Olive teaches Mars a bit of dining etiquette.
A/N: Olive is around nine or ten here. Short, fluffy fluff.
Flavor of the Day [Glutch - to swallow; a mouthful]

Olive watched on as Mars downed a plate of mashed potatoes and bolognese, leaving the plate almost spotless. Olive gave him a look--the same look her own mother would give her whenever she was a little out of line.

"My mom said it's not good to eat so fast," she said. "And look at your cheeks! You look so silly right now!"

Mars looked at her. His cheeks were puffed up with food; for a moment, he looked like a puffer fish.

He gulped down a huge part of the food. "Am not," he mumbled.

"Mom also told me not to talk when your mouth's full." She then tapped on his elbows. "And elbows off the table, too. While you're at it, sit up straight--and pull the plate closer to yourself."

Mars scowled at her. "Do I have to?"

Olive crossed her arms and nodded her head. "Or we're never going out to eat anymore."

Mars looked at his plate, still with a scowl on his face. Afterwards he did as he told; he pulled the plate closer to him, slid his elbows down the edge of the table, and swallowed the rest of his food.

"Now wasn't that better?" said Olive, patting Mars on the head.

Awwww cute! Although I do feel sorry for Mars... nothing worse than being bossed around by a l'il girl. The pat on the head was just adorable though. :D
