Brycen loves baking. Well, she loves most of the job. She likes preparing and kneading the dough, being able to zone in on something other than her own whirling thoughts. She likes the scent of the baking bread. She likes the trickle of friends and acquaintances and villagers she doesn't really know but still finds herself liking, in and out of the bakery. She likes meeting people's little children for the first time. She likes knowing the role she plays in the functioning and happiness of the village.
The waiting, for dough to rise and bread to bake and customers to arrive, she does sometimes feel like she could do with less of.
