Carl's father was a baker and his mother had died when he was three. Every morning as he walked to school, he would pop in to pick up his lunch from 'The Breadery'. It was always the same lunch.
Likewise, Peter had lost a parent when he was young. They supposed that was why they were friends in the first place, but now they had many other things in common.
Peter was infatuated with Carl's father.
He loved breads.
Carl, he was happy he had a friend that could relate to his dad, and maybe one day, would take his unwanted place as the successor to the bread empire.
They were friends.
