On Preparing Buttered Porridge

In the early hours of the morning, a faint light in the window of Three Kings Bakery can be seen. Within, the preparation table, stove and floor appear as if there has been a war between ingredients. A large oat sack leaning against the wall has suffered a few bullet wounds and recipe pages have been fatally pinned to the wall with a dagger. The frustrated-looking woman spinning around the room is covered in oat dust and splashes of milk as she turns to give the boiling pot on the stove a death stare, mumbling something about “fourth try”.

Sweeping a bothersome strand of red hair from her eyes, she peers through the curtain to the newly-cleaned Gangplank. Her expression softens and turns into apparent puzzlement as her eyes affix meaningfully at the two stools by the fireplace. She is not sure why buttered porridge is so important, she is even less sure what all of it has to do with helping Star’s dire situation.

The only things she does know are that the Clockwinder gave specific directions which she would follow…and that she cannot wait to stop cooking and return to her patrol.

      Mr Mornington! you put MILK in your porridge?!! water an a pinch of salt, then pour the mix into the kitchen drawer to set, so a slice may be taken each day for the working folk to take with them, milk would spoil!

    Sky can cook? And here I thought her sword was her deadliest weapon. *packs bags to go into hiding*

      -glares him down- Now darling that’s very rude of you to say! Simply because a woman of her calibur can shoot you between the eyes and burns things numerous times, doesn’t mean she -can’t- cook…


      -grabs him by his ear-
