Unexpected Simile

"Come look at this, it's so pretty!" she exclaimed from the kitchen.

I left my dark office to go have a look. Ru was slowly stirring a concoction of sugar and eggs on the stovetop. It had this opulent, creamy sheen to it.

"Hmph."

"Isn't it pretty?" she asked.

"Well, it kind of has that shine-- like pus draining from a shooter's abscess that I've cut into." With that remark, I went back to my study, after receiving a cutting glare.
