Firebird - Chapter 4
word count: ~1500
The next week and a half had you busy organizing for the party, so you had Eva and Russell working the shop more than usual. Each day, however, one or the other of them would come back to the kitchen to say there was a customer who would only deal with the owner, and each day you served Jared or Jensen or both with a joke and update on the job.
By the time Saturday came around, the kitchen was full of delicious smelling pastries, breads, and sweets for the party. Mid-afternoon you began loading your catering van, but only a few trays in found you with two tall helpers in slacks and button-ups, eager to assist. It only took the three of you about 30 minutes to load everything in your van, which gave you a little more time to change and fix your hair and make up than you had planned.
