Summary: Pete sends Patrick a Fresh Only Bakery box. What’s inside?

Patrick sat in his arm chair, in the middle of his sunny living room in his LA home staring at his coffee table on which rested the foreign object. It smiled naughtily out at him from a nest of opened paper and bubble wrap. From the second the postman delivered it he knew who it was from, even before he opened it and found the words Fresh Only Bakery printed in pink on the lid. Pete wouldn’t tell him what those recordings had been for but Patrick soon learned of Pete’s scheme. He had been annoyed that he hadn’t been let in on the little prank despite how busy he was as he was trying to make more time for Pete these days. Patrick had felt so ticked off in fact that when the first few vids documenting the creation of the tasty plan came out Patrick began a plan of his own.

So far, as far as he knew, the ‘too busy for Pete so if he calls pretend I’m not here’ plan hadn’t gone down well and until now he wasn’t even sure if Pete had noticed. He was pretty sure Pete hadn’t even called but from across the cosmos with his Wentzy ways Pete had sensed the disturbance in the galactic equilibrium between them and sent this box with express post and a teddy bear stamp. Patrick rolled his eyes and wondered if Pete was even flogging their new album to him, as if they hadn’t been working on it for months. Now Patrick had to pay attention to him. He was sure that by the end of the day Pete would call asking about it or expect a call as no feedback on an evil plan meant more to him than Patrick’s. Patrick didn’t want to give him the satisfaction but there it sat unordinary, curious, misplaced coaxing him to look inside.

With a shifty glance left and right he leaned forward and picked up the box placing it in his lap. He tugged carefully at the edges of the lid till he realized those kids had ripped their boxes for a reason. With deliberate ease and a slow pace he tore gently at it till it came open feigning disinterest. Inside was a T-shirt, his size of course, and a CD. He shuffled around in the box looking for the letter that was supposed to go with this box but found none. The CD was unmarked and Patrick’s irritation grew. Not only had Pete not let him in on Fresh Only Bakery but he’d sent Patrick an incomplete box. He glared at the (possibly blank) CD and put the ridiculous box down. His feet padded loudly on the carpet as he marched over to his CD player and tossed the disk inside. He grabbed his remote and pressed play returning to flop onto his chair sulkily.

A few moments of silence passed while Patrick waited to hear what songs Pete had put on this CD if any at all. When sound did spring into his living room it wasn’t a singer or a song. It wasn’t even Patrick with an acoustic version of one of their old songs. It was the mastermind himself, probably stroking Hemmingway and snickering at that very moment, Pete Wentz.

“Yo Patrick guess who dude? Ah yeah you totally knew it was me didn’t you. Hope you didn’t stare at the box too long though cause that time is gonna be crucial in a few minuets... “

Patrick looked untrustingly around the room and rifled through the postage wrapping again checking for timed ‘surprises’ while Pete continued.

“Listen I feel like we haven’t been hanging out or chatting a lot lately and that’s been a shit. We’ve both been so busy that we haven’t had a spare moment to catch up so I thought I’d send you a present. The standard box minus the letter cause you can hear what the letters say on the vid’s I’m pretty sure you will have already watched. This CD is however exclusive to you. I wrote something just for you”

Patrick quirked his eyebrow as he heard shuffling of paper and a loud clearing of Pete’s throat.

“You rise above the fakers, a best friend of a trouble baker. And without you Patty Cakes a dreary patisserie life would make. I feel your sugary absence each day as we are kneaded in different ways. Out of all the Happy Birthday and Wedding topped treats I listen intently for your oven beats. No matter how far my truck travels from you I’ll always come back to start the day anew-”

As Patrick listened to Pete’s amusing homage he noticed a sound coming from the hall. Patrick stood when he realized it was knocking and headed to check it out. Before he managed to leave the room he heard something that gave him pause.

“And that’s where I got the idea for this game, all out of a single nickname”

Patrick blinked and looked over his shoulder at the CD player that seemed to radiate the warm vibes in Pete’s voice.

“I’ll see you when I finish my rounds, I love you. You are my homeward bound”

There was a moment or two of quiet static noises and Pete’s soft breathing before it cut out replaced by the growing sound of knocking at the door. Once Patrick was sure that was all Pete had to say he rushed down to his front door. He peered out the eyehole and saw a donut delivery boy with a white delivery truck behind him. He whipped open the door with a friendly grin and the boy passed him his box with little more than a mention that it was from Patrick’s baker. At first Patrick had been disappointed that it had not been Pete on his doorstep but when he reached his living room and opened the small doughnut box his smile returned.

Inside was one perfect doughnut. It was his favourite flavour; the topping was carefully spread, the sprinkles exactly proportioned and the sweet scent wafted out making Patrick’s mouth water. He wondered what baker Pete had commissioned to spend so much effort on one doughnut. He pulled it out and took a bite heart swelling with joy at the marvellous taste engulfing his mouth. As he slowly ate it, savouring every mouthful, he noticed a tiny note inside. It simply said ‘To our most ingenious scheme yet’.

For some reason this struck a chord in Patrick and a lump started to form in his throat. As he composed himself doughnut still in hand the phone rang. He picked it up and listened. There was near silence except for breathing. It was an easy, expectant inhale and exhale.

“Damn it Pete” Patrick whispered harshly before training his voice to over-dramatic tones “Can’t you see that I want you for more than your baked goods!”

Sitting in his LA home, on his kitchen counter top, in his boxers, his phone pressed close to his ear Pete Wentz smiled.

“Hey Patrick”
