When we arrived at the dining room, various dishes were lined up on a large table.
“Wow, that looks like a lot of food.” (Alicia)
She said while taking a seat.
“Kaoru came from [Eclix], so you probably haven’t eaten much of these kinds of food, so we did our best to serve you.” (Karin)
Karin-san sounds quite excited and proud.
“Then I will call the Master and Mistress, so please wait for a while.” (Karin)
Karin-san then leaves the room to get Alicia-chan’s parents.
“Kaoru-san, the food Karin prepares is very delicious.” (Alicia)
Alicia-chan says so while giggling.
“Everything looks delicious. There is even fried chicken over there.” (Kaoru)
While talking with Alicia about the various dishes, Cain-san and Sara-san came along, led by Karin-san towards the dining table.
“Kaoru-sama, thank you for waiting.” (Cain)
Cain-san and Sara-san gave a small nod before they sat down.
“Let’s eat it. It won’t be as tasty if it cools.”
When Sara-san announced, everyone began digging in.
I first tried the fried chicken.
As I ate a bite, I noticed the meat is very tender and juicy.
Although it is not as fatty as red meat.
Delicious meat juice pools in my mouth, bathing my tongue in all its savoriness and deliciousness.
(SubZero: Original Text ‘Delicious meat juice pools in my mouth, bathing my tongue in a bath of savory, umami deliciousness.’ I changed it in a way that makes more sense. I mean, it’s just weird to see the last few words.)
“This fried chicken is delicious. It’s sweet and spicy, it tastes good and it is also soft. Yeah, the chicken meat is great.”
I gave my compliments to Karin-san after eating her fried chicken.
“That’s true. Kaoru-sama, this is “Korokoro chicken fried”. I used the meat of the Korokoro chicken. It lives in [Sasara prairie], but it is a monster that you cannot easily encounter. It is also very hard to catch, so it’s quite rare. But since you’re here today, we decided to have you taste it.” (Karin)
Karin-san says so.
“It’s quite superb. It makes me want to drink something a bit alcoholic.” (Kaoru)
“I thought so. Here, please have some.” (Karin)
Karin-san then brought out sparkling wine.
“You are quite wise as a maid.” (Kaoru)
“Why, I’m a person that grows more when praised.” (Karin)
While saying so, she pours the sparkling wine into my glass.
I took a sip of it, and the bubbles stimulate my tongue, and the sweetness came and quickly disappeared.
It had a refreshing taste without being overly persistent.
“It’s delicious. I like this. Where did you buy it?” (Kaoru)
“This is made in a town called [Radial]. It’s located north of [Grand Palace]. Sometimes you can find it at [Grand Palace]. But it is quite hard to get it.” (Karin)
“I see… maybe I’ll go to that place next time.” (Kaoru)
I wanted to stock up on this wine so that I could drink it at any time I want.
Next, I try out the soup.
“Is this pumpkin soup?” (Kaoru)
There was a deep yellow corn potage-like soup.
“This is a haunted pumpkin potage. This is also a pumpkin that inhabits the [Sasara Prairie]. It has a deep flavor and sweetness to it. Especially since the pulp has a strong sweetness, I use it only for today. I tried my best.” (Karin)
It was a little thick and a bit heavy.
I ate while listening to her explanation.
The sweetness spreads on your tongue. Japanese pumpkin is also quite sweet, but this is beyond that.
It was so sweet that it could probably count as a dessert.
However, it has a refreshing taste that doesn’t linger too long on the palate.
“I’m going to dip some bread. It’s quite delicious.” (Kaoru)
I told Karin-san.
“Yes, that’s right. It’s okay to eat it with bread. It’s one of Alicia Ojou-sama’s favorites.” (Karin)
“Karin, you don’t have to tell Kaoru-san that.” (Alicia)
Alicia-chan suddenly cut in; she sounded quite impatient.
She was eating bread and potage while her cheeks were died crimson.
I laughed after seeing her expression.
“Kaoru-san, please eat this as well. It’s Dahlia Potato Salad. It’s also delicious. You’ll be quite delighted once you eat it.” (Karin)
I ate the potato salad while I was very excited.
It has a bit of chew when I bite into it.
It is similar to mochi (rice cake).
As you chew, the sweetness comes out gradually.
It was a strange feeling.
“This is interesting. It has a texture similar to mochi.” (Kaoru)
“What is mochi? I don’t know that food. There are similar ones to this. Quite interesting.” (Karin)
Karin-san took notes while saying so.
“Thank you for letting me eat a lot of things I haven’t eaten before. But when I see Alicia-chan choosing something very nutritious, I think about Alicia-chan being well-adjusted in the future.” (Kaoru)
Suddenly, when I looked at Alicia-chan, she was eating while wearing a big smile.
“Oh, do you still not notice?” (Karin)
“It’s clear in her actions. It’s funny if I don’t notice it.” (Kaoru)
“Kaoru-sama isn’t insensitive, so it helps. If so, I would probably help you see more.” (Karin)
“Well, don’t say such scary things.” (Kaoru)
I and Karin-san were talking in such a small voice so that they could not hear our conversation.
“Is Kaoru-sama satisfied?” (Cain)
Cain-san had a nice smile and looking quite red and drunk.
“Oh, the wine is good and the food is great.” (Kaoru)
“It was nice. Every day has become so wonderful that I can’t stop laughing.” (Cain)
“…Cain-san, have you been drinking too much?” (Kaoru)
“No, I can still drink some more.” (Cain)
While saying so, he drank more sparkling wine.
The reason why Cain-san was getting more and more drunk, is that he was trying to out drink me.
After the meal was almost over, Cain-san sprawled and slumped on the table, saying words of appreciation endlessly towards me.
“I’m sorry Kaoru-sama. Cain, you shouldn’t drink too much when you’re in front of a guest.” (Sara)
“I’m sorry about my father Kaoru-sama.” (Alicia)
Sara-san and Alicia-chan both apologize to me.
“No, it is fine.” (Kaoru)
“It’s a little embarrassing. Father isn’t always like this.” (Alicia)
“You don’t have to worry about me not understanding. He is your father Alicia-chan. Anyone who thinks cares about Alicia-chan would be happy about your condition improving.” (Kaoru)
Upon hearing my words, Alicia-chan replied, “Yes,” with a big smile.
I then helped bring Cain-san to their bedroom.
Nothing is more difficult than caring for a drunkard.
When I finally returned to the dining room, I was asked by Karin-san to help Alicia-chan to go to her room.
While scratching my head, I can only say, “Yes”, holding her and I carried Alicia-chan like a princess.
Alicia, who I was holding like a princess, had a happy expression from beginning to end.
I was carrying her while thinking that it was fine.
After carrying Alicia-chan, I finally returned to my room.
On the way, Karin-san said to Alicia while they were inside, “Tonight is your chance! Please do your best.” I thought that if I dug deeper, I would lose so I passed through.
When I went inside the bathroom and twisted the lever, hot water came out.
So I have it fill the bathtub.
The bathtub was wide enough to accommodate me while I extended my legs fully.
I was thinking about the things to do tomorrow, staring at the sights outside my window.
Suddenly I noticed that the hot water was filling up well.
Is the temperature around 42 degrees Celsius?
The water was just right.
Taking off my clothes, I went in the bath.
I felt comfortable as if all the tiredness accumulated in my body quickly dispersed.
“I will do my best tomorrow.” (Kaoru)
I collected my thoughts and quickly washed my head and body and took a long bath.
There was a drawer next to the washroom, which contained towels and sleepwear.
I changed into it and went into bed.
In preparation for tomorrow, I quickly fell asleep.
