Saryn grimaced for a quick moment as she heard the statement "It's an acquired skill, as everything is"
. She understood that Lars' point was that, through hard work, she could become decent at baking pastries, but that didn't stop her from almost immediately cringing at the thought that obviously not all skills can be acquired over time. In fact, she was almost positive that she would never gain the ability that she was born to have, but not allowed to use and that annoyed her for the most part. That being said, everyone in this room would most likely have a similar story so she chose not to elaborate.
Instead of continuing to grimace though, Saryn chose to put on a smile as there really wasn't any point of complaining at this point. She was here as a "Servant" not a student for a reason.
"Yeah, Bread is complicated. Hopefully I can get the hang of it soon, I dont like being too much of a burden.... well other than what I have been doing recently. That is more of an uncontrollable urge. If you need to know where a missing item is, I can probably tell you. As I really don't have an urge to keep the items that were hidden."
Saryn was happy to see that Lars wasn't too concerned with the information that was previously given. Of course, she felt that there was risk associated to telling Lars, but she figured that, if he really wanted to turn her in, the blanket punishment would hardly change if he knew. She would definitely be in trouble, but it really couldn't get too much worse than what she already expected to happen.... right?
She then listened again and smiled even brighter when she heard "Blue-eyes'" true name.
"Lars, what an interesting and unique name. I mean, I still have a little bit of an urge to call you Blue-eyes, but not because your name is lacking in any sense. More like I enjoy giving people names."
Saryn was veritably beaming at this point. Intently listening to Lars, not actually paying attention to the person seeming to try and get his attention. She was slightly perplexed, though, that he didn't really have any certain activities that he enjoyed to do, as she didn't (couldn't) comprehend that baking could be a hobby. Everything that she was given here to do was strictly considered "work" not "play."
Saryn then snapped back to paying attention to her surroundings as she heard the female voice of someone ring from across the kitchen. She then turned to look at the approaching passive, judging by the uniform, and considering her. Saryn was suprised that there was actually someone that was shorter than her. Clover, as she became to known, had what Saryn could have considered to be attractive and striking features. The one Saryn enjoyed the most was the lady's emerald green eyes. The blemishes that Clover was hiding, though, shown more vividly due to the fact that they were obviously trying to be hidden.
Saryn wasn't comfortable, though, about staying near the alcove with someone who didn't know her little secret, and her mind started to race as to how she could redirect attention from herself and Lars to somewhere else.
"Oh! I have seen you around as well, nice to meet you Clover! Sorry for dawdling, I had been trying to....."
She cut herself off right before Lars cut in to explain. Saryn was happy for the godsend. She had temporarily forgotten her first excuse that she used.
"Yes, Lars was kind enough to offer his help."
Saryn then listened to Clover's suggestion and automatically jumped at the chance to move away from the alcove. Anything to get herself away from something that could get her in trouble.
Saryn quickly replied in order to get moving.
"I would love to join you! I am still a novice at making bread, so I would be more than happy to practice good habits wrought with the experience that comes from making it more often than myself."
Saryn took a guess on where the station was and made a beeline for the station. For anyone who didn't know her secret, it could be considered that she was eager to get to work, but she hoped that Lars, who knew her habit, would pick up on the fact that she wanted to get away from the scene of the crime. Disassociate herself from the potential problem, at least for now.
Once Saryn reached the station, she turned around with a grin.
"I know the basics of making bread like this, but if I make a mistake please try and correct me! I apologize for the burden that I may cause because bad habits are hard to get rid of
