What followed was just the usual exchange of small talk between the two of them, the old woman insisting that Sojiro sit down and enjoy some food that she had extra. While he was enjoying extra pieces of cookies and cakes, Mrs. Nash would explain that they were leftover from her Baker's Dozens that she made while cooking. Of course, Sojiro was proud of his ability to cook food but he wasn't much of a baker, so he didn't really know what the phrase had meant. The old woman humored him while drinking some tea, explaining to the young man that a baker's dozen usually refers to when they make a thirteenth pastry. This is so they can try their own product to see how it is, and see if it is good enough to go out and sell it to people. It made sense why Mrs. Nash never minded feeding Sojiro and his friends if they came by, she had extras for days and was more than happy to share. There was something about this sweet old lady that Sojiro couldn't get enough of. After another hour or so of casual chatting, the man would leave the bakery while eating one of the Baker's Dozen muffins that he had been given.
For a moment, Sojiro had been clear of the burdens of the village and he was enjoying himself. Of course, as he walked down the road and towards the slum, where his father's home was located at... That was when reality had struck him. There was a pit that formed in his stomach as he looked at a light post, at a piece of paper that was fluttering in the room. It hadn't been there when he walked by earlier and... Now it was. Sojiro swallowed the muffin in his mouth but let the rest of it fall from his hand, hitting the ground as he walked towards the paper, "A Baker's Dozen..." Sojiro would mutter underneath his breath as he looked at the poster for another missing child. This one didn't look any older than ten years old, with short blonde hair that curled around her chubby face. Blue eyes smiled back as Sojiro looked at the poster and there was suddenly an anger bubbling inside of his stomach. He would take the poster and put it in his pocket, he'd add it to the wall of others back at home. It was clear that he wasn't going to be able to sleep tonight, there was no way. How could they always be one step ahead of him? There had to be something he could do.
