Pain throbbed in her leg and ear. She clamped her jaws tight, and kept her head lowered while edging around Cook’s helpers to the barrel. Kaserie sloshed the remaining water from the buckets inside. Cook had used more water than usual this morning. It would take at least ten more trips to fill the barrel.
By the time Kaserie had stowed the dripping mop from cleaning up the spilled water, gained splinters in her fingers from the wood, and made eleven trips to the well, the smell of baked bread and luncheon’s stew filled the room. Kaserie’s stomach growled. Cook glared at her, but after glancing at the stacked wood, dry floor, and the full water-barrel, she handed Kaserie a sliver of cheese on a crust of bread and nodded toward the corner. She would wait there until grumpy Cook assigned her other tasks.
