“The smell of bread brings me back to my childhood. Every morning the baker’s daughter would sneak me into their kitchen and feed me fresh bread.

She would cut into bread while I brought out the honey. While we ate she would tell me faery stories of faraway lands.

For a child on the streets a slice of fresh bread was my version of the Summerland. Some days it was my only meal and my only chance to pretend I was wanted.

The baker’s daughter was the only one who cared for me. She would fret over each bruise on my face but I know her father punished her for helping me.

I didn’t care. She was the closest I had to a home. I returned every day to sit with her and share a meal of warm bread and butter.

Eventually we both grew older and the baker’s daughter married a man of her parent’s choosing. She moved away with her husband and went on with her life.

I don’t know if she remembers me but I think of her every time I smell bread.”

Wolf sighed as he sawed the knife into the warm loaf of bread.

“Is that why you always making bread? So as you don’t forget her?” Mouse peered over the table at Wolf.

A smile creeped onto Wolf’s face. “I make bread because it gives us something to eat little one. There is no need for you to go hungry like I did as a child.”

Mouse grabbed the bread Wolf passed him. Smothering the slice with honey, Mouse shoved it in his mouth. After chewing, Mouse scrunched up his face.”Is this her bread?”

Wolf’s body shook with laughter. “It is the bread her father taught me to how to make.”

The AP Roberts is an extremely rare creature and there is only one known AP Roberts in the world. Usually off in its own little world, the AP returns to reality when it gets lonely. This elusive creature is rather difficult to catch on film, however will pose for drawings. The AP, though wild by nature, can be tamed and makes a wonderful pet. It should also be known that while the AP gets along with most creatures it has an intense fear of insects and large canines. The AP lives on a diet of mainly vegetables and candy but is not known to refuse food that is made and offered through kindness. The drink of choice for the AP is tea though it is known to drink water and juice. There is still much to be learned of the AP however, most agree that the writings of the AP are truly something to behold. Hopefully, one day the AP will find a good Agent creature who will introduce the AP's writings to a good publisher creature and the world will be able to read the AP's works.
