Disclaimer: Don't own, make no money off of this. Though it would be nice to recuperate some of the money I lost buying bakery goods after reading this series.
Warnings: None that you shouldn't already be aware of for this series.

Big and Dumb
Kanda was sick, and Ono had been forced to physically kick the young man out of the bakery. His dedication was admirable but, as Tachibana had reminded him, not at the risk of getting their customers sick. Ono's workload had doubled because of it, but he was up to the task. Besides, he wasn't completely without help.
"Is this the pan that you needed Mr. Ono?" Chikage held the pan up for inspection.
"No, not quite," Ono smiled to negate any negativity Chikage might read into the words. "I need the one that is one step down in size."
Chikage immediately turned around to look again, only needing to stretch a little to reach the highest shelf. But a little stretch was all it took to make his apron fall open in the back. Ono mussed that it was convenient to him that he didn't need to pay such strict attention while making the Choux. "I think it's a little further back, Mr. Chikage."
