Leondra stood her ground and let her teacher consider the contents of her gift.
“Fairy bread.” Farhana held it up for Leondra to inspect. “Eat.”
Leondra took it, hesitating a few moments more to see exactly what it was. The colourful nature of the bread was due to the multicoloured sprinkles which littered its surface. She took a bite and forced herself to swallow.
They both ate their piece of bread, similarly methodical. Perhaps it was too sweet for either of them.
However, unlike Leondra, Farhana made a point to eat all of the fairy bread except for one. Then she determined their lesson for the day over. With only one piece inside of her, Leondra agreed. Perhaps it wasn’t that sugary, but she certainly didn’t eat that much sugar normally.
She could only imagine how Farhana had managed it.
