Cottia Makes Bread

Title: Cottia  Makes Bread
Length:902  words
Inspired by: Eagle of the Ninth by Rosemary Sutcliff ( I keep meaning to have a go at something inspired by one of the other books!  Frontier Wolf, maybe, or The Lantern Bearers. )

Cottia has a lot of useful skills to bring to the farm, but baking isn't one of them.  Humour.

Note : I'm not sure if Marcus really would be a ninja baker, but Roman soldiers did grind their own grain and make their own food individually or in small groups, rather than having it provided and cooked for them by the army.
