As a Parent, As an Attendant
(Thank you for reading at bayabuscotranslation.com)
“Look, it’s here.” (Sirius)
It’s a few days after Noir declared that she wanted to become Reus’ attendant.
After today’s business was over, I left the cleaning up to Dee, and returned to the living room, which was the living space of the shop. And then, I played with Noir.
There are plenty of ways to be friends when the hostility against me has disappeared. I was able to be friends with her by luring with foods and talking about Reus, until I could play with Noir.
“Alright, this time it’s here.” (Sirius)
“What is it?” (Sirius)
“That… I think that is, somehow, strange or is it my imagination?” (Reese)
I was playing with Noir by waving a green foxtail, but why did you say it was strange? Noir was having so much fun trying to catch the tip of the green foxtail.
“But Reese-ane, Noir seems to enjoy this a lot, so isn’t it good?” (Reus)
“Looking at the cute Noir-chan makes me want to play with Sirius-sama, how envious I am.” (Emilia)
“It’s not that I don’t understand the feeling, but I feel that something’s different…” (Reese)
It doesn’t require a lot of running, but for the siblings, they think it’s similar to Frisbee playing.
While we were playing, and getting use to this new toy, Noel and Dee appeared.
“Sirius-sama, can we have a talk… eh? Oh you Noir-chan, I’m glad you’re playing with Sirius-sama.” (Noel)
“Yeah, I don’t understand why, but it is really fun! Okaa-san, do you want to play, too?” (Noir)
“I also want to play, but before that, I have important things to talk about, so later. A talk… between Sirius-sama… and us…” (Noel)
She was speaking like an adult, when listening to her words; but, unfortunately, Noel’s eyes were nailed to the ball that I was rolling. Since she was continuously keeping track of it for a while, so when I rolled it over Noel’s feet… her instincts went beyond reason.
“Noir-chan! It’s here!” (Noel)
It became a heartwarming scene where a mother and her daughter were happily kittened on the ball together.
Well… as the mood got better, I thought about getting to the point.
“Sirius-sama. I have something important to discuss… but would it be better to have that later?” (Noel)
“No, it’s fine now, so just say it. The thing is we were considering to go on a trip soon.” (Sirius)
Dee had somehow realized it, but Noel and Noir were surprised to the point that they stopped playing with the ball. Leaving the ball, Noel came close to me with sorrowful eyes.
“It hasn’t been half a month, right!? Although you made a friend with Noir after great pains, please stay a little bit more.” (Noel)
“I’m not in a hurry, but I feel like I can’t leave if it’s too long. I want you to understand that.” (Sirius)
“That’s… right. It is Sirius-sama’s dream to travel around the world…” (Noel)
Noel seemed to be convinced when she said it with such a serious expression.
Noel thought of me as family, and because of that, she wanted to stay together with me until the end. However, when Noel remembered the things I wanted to do, she realized that she shouldn’t become a hindrance.
Anyhow, rather than Noel, the child, Noir was not able to understand. Although she was young, she was aware about farewells. She ran and jumped into Reus’ chest while crying. At that moment, let’s not see that Dee’s eyebrows were moving slightly.
“Reus-sama… are you going to leave?” (Noir)
“It’s not going to happen soon, but yeah.” (Reus)
“I don’t want it. It is difficult to be an attendant… but I don’t want you to leave.” (Noir)
“I’m sorry. I am Aniki’s disciple and attendant, and I never thought about separating from him.” (Reus)
Noir buried her face into Reus’ chest as she continued to cry, but after a while, she fell asleep with a quiet sleeping breath. The gloomy mood had become slightly better with the cuteness of her sleeping face.
“I’m sorry, Reus-kun. I will properly persuade Noir-chan later.” (Noel)
“I leave it to you, Noel-nee. But you know, I understand Noir’s pain. If I separated from Aniki… I just do not want to imagine it.” (Reus)
“I think I also can’t stand it. Sirius-sama, please don’t disappear as you please.” (Emilia)
“As long as you guys do not want to leave, I have no plans to leave on my own.” (Sirius)
The siblings were relieved at those words. Well, I had declared before, in the past, that I won’t leave them until I died.
Even if I was to disappear, somehow, I feel that the siblings were likely to find me, no matter what. With the sister who’s abnormally sensitive to my odor, and combined with the abnormally sharp intuition of the brother, wouldn’t they easily find me? On the contrary, she also said not to run away.
Dee was sadly staring at me after hearing about us parting, but he nodded with a serious look. Yeah, as a backbone of the family, you can’t show a depressed appearance.
“Sirius-sama, please feel free to do whatever you want. While protecting Noel and the rest, I am looking forward to seeing you again.” (Dee)
“Yes, we will come back again. Noir will grow big at that time, so I am expecting her to be a splendid attendant.” (Sirius)
“Yes! I will bring her up so that she won’t be an embarrassment, no matter where she goes, so please look forward to it.” (Noel)
After that, we continued the discussion for a while and we decided to begin our trip in five days.
Honestly, I was ready to go on a trip at anytime. It’s possible to depart in a day, if we took the carriage we left at the Galgan Company, but there was a reason for doing it on the fifth day.
They were surprised, as if they were caught off guard, when I told them that we won’t leave until I completed that, but they were pleased about the matter.
I started preparing for the upcoming arrangement, while watching Noir rest peacefully.
(Thank you for reading at bayabuscotranslation.com)
“Fuuhh… Is it something like that?” (Noel)
Two days have passed since then, and we were working in the kitchen.
There was an armful of iron plates in front of us, and I was in the middle of drawing magic formations on the plates.
“Dee-nii, I will take this old shelf outside.” (Reus)
“Please. Alad, hold those cooking wares.” (Dee)
“Understood. Reus, I will help since it’s heavy… Eh, with one hand!?” (Alad)
“I will start cleaning after the place has become less crowded.” (Emilia)
[Erina’s Dining Room] was closed for today, and a large renovation work was done in the kitchen.
There were no fatal defects since it was built a few years ago, but I thought about doing the refurbishment in order to reduce Dee’s burden.
As for me, who had seen restaurants in the previous world, I found some unnecessary parts and inefficiencies when I was helping in the kitchens of this world. Then, I gathered my notes together and informed Dee, and suggested to remodel the kitchen.
Actually, Dee himself seemed to worry about it, but it took time and money to do the construction. Plus, he said he gave up because a large amount of gold coins were necessary, even with just the specialized magic formation and stoves.
If that was the case, I planned to remodel it with our own hands. Far from ordinary, since I specialized in drawing magic formations and had Reus taking charge of the physical labor, I thought it could be done in a day if it was only the kitchen.
Thus, the owner, Dee, gave his permission and the remodeling of [Erina’s Dining Room] began.
While being overseen by Dee, Reus and Alad took the big things outside, Emilia was entrusted with cleaning and other chores, while Reese and the other women went out to buy minor items.
In the meantime, a woman with a chisel and a hammer was talking to me as I was drawing the magic formation on a plate outside the shop.
“Sirius-kun, I’ve made it.” (Stella)
“Aah, good work. You’ve made it fast.” (Sirius)
“Since I live on this, I would be embarrassed if I didn’t finish the ordered projects quickly.” (Stella)
I was worried to leave the remodeling to amateurs, so Stella, who was Noel’s mother and worked in the building industry, had helped me this time.
Even though she was busy with work, she gave an immediate reply when I went to consult with her. She said it was natural to help with her daughter and her son-in-law’s store. She was a very reliable being as she came and laughed heartily.
I asked her to make the ‘pillar’ of the kitchen, which was the stove, and she seemed to have made it in only few hours.
I was guided by Stella-san to see the sculpture of a big stone and examine the stove, and it seemed that there were no problems, as long as I could see the balance of the stove body and its height.
“As what you had ordered, I made it higher than before and made a groove… So, what do you think?” (Stella)
“It’s perfect. That’s just what I wanted.” (Sirius)
She had properly made it according to my instructions, and it was finished without any complaints.
In order to arrange it immediately, I called Reus, who had finished carrying the shelves outside.
“Reus, come here. Bring this to the kitchen.” (Sirius)
“Got it, Aniki. One, two…!” (Reus)
I thought the weight of the stove was probably several hundreds of kilograms, so Reus and I activated [Boost] and carried it.
After we finished arranging it, I brought the iron plate that was drawn with my magic formation and fitted it into the groove.
The stove that I made this time didn’t only have the traditional functions, but also an improved heating magic formation that I learned in the school and tried to add some things that were similar to the electric stove that was in my previous life. This wasn’t for heating, but for keeping the warmth of the pre-made dishes.
It’ll absorb enough mana in the atmosphere to keep a warm temperature; however, when it comes to the amount of heat used for cooking, the amount of mana needed is intense and it’s useless unless you keep supplying mana. Besides me, if an ordinary person used it, they wouldn’t last for a single day.
In case the magic stove doesn’t work like an electric stove, because the magic formation has deteriorated and became unusable, I made it a reusable cartridge-type so that the plate with the magic formation drawn on it can be replaced.
Of course, I sold this technology and magic formation to the Galgan Company, so the magical cooking stoves and replacement plates would be on sale. In this regard, I discussed it with the Galgan Company along with Dee, and it was decided that this store would be the pilot store that will use the magic stove. Since I was receiving some money, more or less, I made some fine adjustments to the furnishings of the store.
After that, I increased the base of the fire so that they can use a pot at the same time, and reproduced the convenient mechanisms seen in my previous life’s restaurants. Therefore, it should be much more efficient than yesterday’s kitchen.
When Reus and I finished arranging the stoves together, Emilia immediately came and started cleaning up. Since they planned to use the full scale of it tomorrow, I arranged it so that it can be use at anytime.
Stella-san was impressed when she looked at us.
“Hmmm… I thought it would take two or three days at the earliest, but it would seem to have been completed in a day. I’d like to make my kids learn the strength and the skills of your hands.” (Stella)
Stella-san muttered while watching Alad, who was exhausted by the physical labor, with a glance. I think that’s normal, because we were abnormal.
“Hehe, I can’t be called Aniki’s disciple if I can’t do this much.” (Reus)
“In my opinion, Stella-san is the amazing one.” (Sirius)
“Hahaha, what are you talking about to an Obaa-san who gave her job to the juniors? Ah, can you hold this?” (Stella)
No, this person was really amazing. She made the shelves attach to the wall, and that contributed to the factor of getting assistance from Hokuto, who had gathered awe and reverence.
Since Hokuto skillfully used his forefoot to hold the board, an indescribable scene was displayed.
Meanwhile, Emilia had finished cleaning up, and I was called by Dee, who was testing the ease of use of the new stove, and he told me his impressions.
“This is good. Compared to the regular stove, this one has more uniform fire distribution and the heat adjustments have become easier.” (Dee)
“There seems to be no problems. Shall I make lunch for everyone at once?” (Sirius)
“That’s right. I will prepare the ingredients right away.” (Dee)
We’d been working throughout the morning, so it was good to prepare our lunch soon.
I began preparing our lunch together with Dee, and the ladies, who went out shopping a while ago, came back.
“I’m back.” (Noel)
“Welcome back. Did you get all the necessary stuff?” (Sirius)
“All good, Sirius-sama! Ah, is that the new stove? Besides, this smell… is it a curry!?” (Noel)
“Ooh, I’ve prepared the sweet one for Noir. I will finish it soon, so wash your hands and wait.” (Sirius)
Since Noir obediently replied to my words, she was also someone I wanted to entertain. I proceeded with the preparation while looking at the mother and daughter who went to wash their hands, without knowing which one was the child.
While stewing the curry, as I was making toppings, such as small cutlets and hamburgers, Dee was watching me with a wondering look.
“Sirius-sama. Although it is a curry, is it necessary to make a variety?” (Dee)
“No, these are for the toppings. Before you prepare the curry, take each person’s request and put it on their curry.” (Sirius)
“I see, that is to meet the customer’s request, isn’t it?” (Dee)
“Besides, it might be a good idea to make a survey, such as a day for curry dishes, or putting the best selling dishes on the regular menu.” (Sirius)
“…I’m learning something.” (Dee)
I think [Erina’s Dining Room] will still prosper even if he doesn’t do that, but… there is no loss in teaching him various surprise methods. Dee nodded with the good ideas, and he took hurried notes.
Originally, I started thinking that it would be lonely with only curry, but since he was unusually absorbed in it, I just rode along with him.
I made too much… and I didn’t think about it at all. Anyway, there were three who ate a lot in the house. If I’m going to take a request, there will be no difference if I take it altogether.
Then, it was time for lunch, and I asked everyone that was sitting at a table in the dining room for their requests…
“Cheese and eggs, please.” (Emilia)
“Uhmm… Karaage!” (Noir)
I prepared for the curry while bitterly smiling at the three people, Reus, Reese and Noel, who raised their hands as if breaking through the sky
All of them were lined up on the table, and Stella-san was watching with an astonished look when she saw Noel, who began eating pleasantly with the full volume of curry.
“Noel… can you really eat it? You had a couple pieces of bread this morning.” (Stella)
“I am fine if it is this much, Okaa-san. Since Sirius-sama and your dishes are delicious, I will eat as much as possible.” (Noel)
“Yeah! And Obaa-chan too, right?” (Noir)
“Hahaha, Noir is right. It is tasty.” (Stella)
Stella-san gently brushed her granddaughter’s head with narrowed eyes. But when she looked at Noel, her astonished look returned.
“It is fine for Noir, since she is a child, but aren’t you overeating? You’ll get fat, you know?” (Stella)
Noel’s movements stopped right at that moment, but the spoon started moving again, probably because she couldn’t resist the charm of the curry.
Stella-san shook her head without saying anything more, but Dee was answering with a firm look.
“It is alright, Stella-san. Even if she is fat, Noel is still Noel.” (Dee)
“Dear… Are you assuming that I will get fat?” (Noel)
“…If you continue as is, I think that is probable.” (Dee)
“Gafuuu! T-this is bad. But, I can’t stop when it is tasty! What should I do, Sirius-sama!? (Noel)
“Hey, do you think I’ll be the one in trouble?” (Sirius)
Well, it was because I cooked the dishes, and since I felt like giving some ideas, let’s just go along with it.
“Were you begin eating a lot recently? And how much did you eat previously, Noel?” (Sirius)
“Previous, it was enough with a plate.” (Noel)
“Hmmm… you have already eaten two plates, but are you going to eat more?” (Sirius)
“Yes! Although this is delicious, it can’t be helped since I am hungry.” (Noel)
An ordinary person would have enough if they put all of the toppings on their dishes. Even though the inhabitants of this world have huge meal consumptions, it seems to be abnormal when it is increased to nearly twice as much as before.
Dee was probably still worried, and I was the only one hearing him when he slowly muttered.
“Sirius-sama, maybe Noel is sick?” (Dee)
“There are two people who eat a lot in the vicinity, so I see nothing but someone who eats a lot…” (Sirius)
The standards went out of order when looking at how much Reus and Reese ate. In the first place, is there any sickness that makes you eat a lot?
I remembered the sickness, but I haven’t done any physical examinations on Noel and the others since I came here. Since they were a healthy family who appeared had no history of illnesses, I just checked with [Scan] after meeting them.
Dee appeared to be worried, so let’s do a thorough [Scan] this time.
“Noel, I will check to see whether there is an abnormality or not, so do not move for a bit.” (Sirius)
“Eh, there are no painful places, but go ahead. Oh, I’d like to ask for another helping in the meantime.” (Noel)
“Dee-nii, I want more.” (Reus)
“Dee-san, another please.” (Reese)
“Wait a sec.” (Dee)
While Dee prepared the helpings for the gluttons in another place, I focused my senses and invoked [Scan]
A simple [Scan], which I normally do, is like viewing the entirety, the one that I’m using this time will thoroughly examine the cells of the internal organs, and from the head to the toes.
As I spread a serious atmosphere, everyone stopped eating and kept watching breathlessly. Although they were looking at me, there were two people who didn’t stop their eating hands… but I didn’t mind.
“…I see.” (Sirius)
“Uhmm… why are you making such a serious face?” (Noel)
“You don’t have to worry because it is not a sickness. Rather than saying you are hungry, didn’t you happen to eat a lot recently?” (Sirius)
“That’s right. But, it is because Sirius-sama’s dishes are tasty.” (Noel)
What came to me was that, since I had compared the present conditions with the knowledge of a book that I checked in the past… it seems that there was no mistake.
The situations where a beastkin’s meal consumption increases varied, but from the reaction that I felt from Noel’s stomach, she was…
“Si-sirius-sama? Could that be…” (Dee)
“Yes, there is a new life in Noel’s stomach. Congratulations Noel, and Dee. That is your second child.” (Sirius)
She probably had it even before we came or stayed, and she didn’t notice it since it was in the early stages. Besides, since she felt nostalgic about my dish, she misunderstood the reason why she ate a lot.
The two, who listened to the matter of the new baby, hardened for a while. Instead of them, the family member, Nokia, Emilia and the rest were reacting first.
“Congratulations, Onee-chan. Dee-san. There is a new family member.” (Emilia)
“That’s great, Noel-nee! Dee-nii! Today is a celebration!” (Reus)
“Congratulations, Noel-san, Dee-san. Haa… I am somehow seeing an amazing situation.” (Reese)
“Congratulations, Aneki! That’s really great, Dee-san!” (Alad)
“Hey, are you listening, Nee-chan!? It’s the second one, you know. The second one!” (Nokia)
“I-I’m listening. Err… is it true?” (Noel)
She looked at me as if she couldn’t believe it, but I nodded and made a smile.
Whether Dee finally could understand the reality, he suddenly lifted Noel up and spun around.
“Yeay… that’s great Noel! You did well!” (Dee)
“Wawaa!? Oh, you… my dear. Yeah… I did it!” (Noel)
It was unusual to see Dee in a frenzy-like appearance until now, but he was very happy.
He was spinning around for a while until he noticed that it became a burden to Noel, so he hurriedly put her down. Since she was still in the early stages before her body became slumped, it was not necessary to be impatient.
He explained to Noir, who vaguely understood what was going on, while still embracing Noel.
“Okaa-san will give birth to Noir-chans’s brother or sister. In short, Noir-chan will become an Onee-chan.” (Dee)
“Onee-chan… I am an Onee-chan!?” (Noir)
“Yeah! Banzai!” (Noel)
Noir had somehow understood it, so she and Noel happily raised their hands together.
They were in high spirits for a while and when it became calm, Noel returned to her seat as if she remembered it, and began eating another helping of curry with a refreshed feeling.
I wanted to be amazed at her, who could start eating immediately while having a child, but she had sufficient reason.
When a human carries a child, it is common that the eating habits changed and their physical condition deteriorates, but in the case of beastkin, they will eat anyway.
It is almost unrelated to morning sickness, and their physical condition getting poor during pregnancy is much lighter compared to a human’s. Anyway, it seems they are afflicted with hunger, but all the nutrition they eat almost all flows to the child.
Whether that will be good for each person, neither will change the hardship.
“I missed Sirius-sama’s dishes and I was wondering why the amount of meals increased more than usual. When I think about it carefully, it was a situation similar to before.” (Noel)
“Well, since the symptoms are coming out, you will eventually notice it in a few days even if you don’t want it. Whatever it is, eat without hesitation.” (Sirius)
“Yes! I am really happy, with my husband and my master who makes delicious meals.” (Noel)
There seems to be quite a lot of beastkin who are having premature babies due to insufficient nutrition, but looking at Noir, there was no need to worry about that. She was evidence that Dee was working hard.
He has to think about balancing the volume and nutrition for the meals in the future. When I was thinking about teaching Dee about meals with high nutrition, Stella-san, who didn’t say anything, approached Noel and put her hand on Noel’s head.
“Goodness… Although the second child will be born, you will not change…” (Stella)
“Excuse me! I have changed! After giving birth to Noir, don’t you notice that I am gleaming and overflowing with maternal instinct?” (Noel)
“From my point of view, it’s still too early. Oh well… Congratulations, Noel. Since it’s going to be hard when the number increases, it is likely that I will have more opportunities to come here.” (Stella)
“Aah, I saw Okaa-san’s motive. If you want to see your grandchild’s face, it is fine to just come see it unreservedly. You’re still trying to pretend in front of me, huh.” (Noel)
“Don’t you get carried away.” (Stella)
She hit Noel with an exasperated expression, but the mother’s desire that firmly wish for her child’s happiness was displayed in her eyes. Regardless of the way they communicated, I think that they had a good mother-and-daughter relationship by looking at those two who were laughing.
Stella-san was delighted even though she was countered by Noel, but she grumbled after looking sideways at the rest of her children.
“Haaa… for this foolish girl to bear a second child, what have you guys been doing down there? When will you show me grandchildren?” (Stella)
“Ooh, I have decided to be with cooking.” (Alad)
“…I have nothing to say, Okaa-san.” (Nokia)
Although Alad said he chose cooking, Noel told me the truth that he was secretly dating a girl in the town.
It seemed Nokia was longing for Dee, but she had given up after looking how he was being lovey-dovey with Noel. Since then, she had been pursuing an ideal man for herself.
Nonetheless, she will have meetings if she works as a waitress, and I’m sure she will be able to meet her ideal man one day… maybe.
“Now now, Nokia-chan is cute, so she absolutely can meet a good man.” (Noel)
“Kuhh! I hate that smile on your whole face! I will definitely be happier than Onee-chan!” (Nokia)
“Fufufu, I wonder if you can win over Onee-chan’s happiness? Well then, I want another helping for the baby.” (Noel)
“Me too, another please.” (Reese)
“I also won’t lose. I want more!” (Reus)
“This not a match.” (Sirius)
I noticed Dee’s expression had stiffened when I served helpings while being astounded with Reus’ words.
Could it be that, he was anxious like when we had parted in Almest? When I wondered whether I should deliver the punch, I met Dee’s eyes.
“Is there anything on my face?” (Dee)
“No… I think you will have more difficulties from now on. Are you ready for it, Dee?” (Sirius)
“It’s… alright. Uhmm, there is no need for Sirius-sama to hit my belly anymore.” (Dee)
“Aren’t you going to say something? Protect the family strongly, Otou-san.” (Noir)
Despite being married and able to have children, Dee’s eyes were still glare-like, but the expression he showed was completely like the face of a father.
We continued working after lunch, and the kitchen refurbishment was successfully completed within that day.
The heating adjustment became easier, the number of pots to be left on the stove increased and they got a big refrigerator that can hold the ingredients. Trivial things were eliminated, the space was widened on the whole and the burden of cooking in the future should have greatly decreased.
A big party was held on the evening to celebrate the completion of the kitchen and Noel and Dee’s new child.

Three days later… the day of our departure arrived.
We picked up our carriage from the Galgan Company, and then we stood up, side-by-side, in front of [Erina’s Dining Room] and said goodbye.
Since the time was still too early to prepare ingredients in the morning, Dee, Noel, Noir and also Stella-san gathered to see us off.
I was wearing my usual long coat and Dee handed me a big basket when I was checking the equipment.
“Sirius-sama, here is the boxed lunches. Please have them in the middle of the trip.” (Dee)
“I’m sorry. It feel lonely when I think that I can’t eat Dee’s dishes for a while.” (Sirius)
“Have you forgotten anything? And won’t you stay a bit more?” (Noel)
“It’s a bit too late to say that now. And our preparations are complete.” (Sirius)
“Please, don’t worry because I have double-checked the preparations. Onee-chan… take care of yourself.” (Emilia)
“Thank you for your help. Noel…Onee-san, I pray for a wonderful baby to be born.” (Reese)
“Of course! I will give birth to a healthy baby, so please, come and treat the child like Noir next time.” (Noel)
“Yes, I’m looking forward to that.” (Reese)
I noticed that Reese, who became friends with Noel, shook their hands similar to Noel and Emilia. After she finished shaking hands with everyone, she led Noir, who stood a slightly distance away, to the front.
“Come, Noir-chan. If you don’t say it now, you will regret it.” (Noel)
“Yeah. Say… Reus-sama…” (Noir)
“What is it?” (Reus)
“I… will become stronger for Reus-sama. And I will make delicious meals! So… so… until I become your attendant, and grow bigger… please…” (Noir)
Maybe it was because she was shy, her voice was getting smaller and smaller. The last part was close to a hoarse voice and I could not catch it.
Since I had a habit of trying to listen to such things so that I won’t miss it, I instantly strengthened my hearing, but… how about Reus?
“I didn’t hear the last part well, but I’m looking forward to it. But, do not push yourself. I will be sad if Noir collapsed.” (Reus)
…Unfortunately, it looked like he didn’t hear it. After all, Reus is a tough opponent.
Nonetheless, Reus was probably content with Noir’s favor. He was smiling at us while caressing Noir’s head. Noir was depressed until then, but when Reus caressed her head, she displayed a smile.
I thought she was going to cry a lot, but with the encouragement from Reus, and the fact that she would become an older sister, seemed to have strengthened her.
It was probably depressing, but this one would also grow up well. You will become stronger after going through various experiences, so good luck at throwing everything out in your chest when you meet him again.
“Let’s depart, Hokuto.” (Sirius)
The carriage advanced with my order, and [Erina’s Dining Room] became more distant.
It was a short period of time, but the days we spent with Noel and Dee in that dining room felt like we had returned home.
I do not have a home to return to, but the place where those guys were reminded me that I have a place where I can return.
When I looked back, Noel and Noir kept waving their hands, even after our figures disappeared.
(Thank you for reading at bayabuscotranslation.com)
We left Aurum town and were heading for the main road, but as I expected, the mood was a bit gloomy after the parting.
I thought that I would be better to have some time before starting the training while moving. When I was looking at the scenery while sitting on the coachman’s seat, Hokuto turned his head to me while pulling the carriage. Apparently, he seemed worried about me, so I put up a smile to reassure him.
“It’s alright, Hokuto. You know me too well, don’t you?” (Sirius)
“Good grief, you don’t have to worry so much.” (Sirius)
I was smiling bitterly at my worried faithful dog, and Emilia and Reese, who were resting inside the carriage, came and sat next to me. Although they were smiling, they were not able to hide the loneliness due to the parting.
It was a quiet moment for quite a while and not a single word was spoken… and when the town completely disappeared, they began to talk, bit by bit.
“…As expected, being apart is lonely.” (Emilia)
“That’s right. It became more lonely since Noel-san, Dee-san, and everyone else were good people.” (Reese)
“Sirius-sama… don’t you miss them?” (Emilia)
Emilia asked while looking at my face, but I didn’t mind being asked with such a matter.
“What are you saying, do you think I miss them?” (Sirius)
“Yeah, that’s right, isn’t it? And, you look fine…” (Emilia)
“Although I am looking fine on the surface, I surely miss them, you know? Besides, this is a farewell that we can meet them again. It is not an eternal farewell. Therefore, there is no need to feel lonely for long.” (Sirius)
“Oh, that’s true. It will be fine if we see them again, right?” (Emilia)
“Yeah. In the first place, Aurum is a peaceful town. Noel and Dee can take on an opponent that is at the level of an intermediate adventurer. So, there’s no point in worrying.” (Sirius)
I looked around while I was staying there, and I didn’t hear such matters like underworld organizations sneaking in, plots from dark organizations and anyone targeting Noel and others. I also infiltrated the lord that governed the town to confirm with my own eyes, but he turned out to be a decent person as was rumored.
[Erina’s Dining Room] would be safe, unless a major incident happens that involved the whole town of Aurum.
“Leaving that matter aside, now it is about us. Noel will be safe, but for us, it is regrettable if something happens. We will start the training in the afternoon, so please rearrange your feelings.” (Sirius)
“Yes. Aniki is right, Nee-chan.” (Reus)
Reus, who was maintaining his sword in the carriage, was the first one to agree. You’re switching fast… No, are you saying you are resembling me?
“Reus is amazing. I still can’t stand looking when Noir was crying…” (Reese)
“No no, I really miss Noel-nee and Dee-nii after departing from them, you know? It is because Aniki and Nee-chan are next to me. So, I won’t miss them that much.” (Reus)
“Haa… I’m happy, but be a little more sorry. Noir-chan is a child who likes you.” (Emilia)
“Eh? Noir is still a child, so she is only yearning, not liking, Onee-chan. The present feelings will disappear when she grows up, won’t they?” (Reus)
“You’re taking it lightly, Reus. Since she is a child, the degree of feelings that girls can hide is amazing. Look at me.” (Emilia)
The reply uttered by Emilia was extraordinarily persuasive. She was gradually looking at me. For the time being, I brushed her head, and that made her swung her tail.
“Haha, that’s because it is Nee-chan, right? Besides, the other person is Aniki, isn’t that normal?” (Reus)
“…He still has a long way to go.” (Sirius)
“We must do something about him.” (Reese)
While sighing at Reus, who smiled heartily, the carriage, which we rode, went on the main road.
The plan from now on was to drop by the town Reese was born. And the reason is to visit the grave of Reese’s mother, Laura.
My business is done, and next is for Emilia and Reus. Thus, it would be unfair if Reese doesn’t visit her grave.
After that, we headed to a port town in the vicinity, and finally left for our aim, the Aldrodo Continent.
Later… let’s think about after arriving at the continent.
For us, the main thing to do is to leisurely look around for a village of the silver wolf tribe.
And then, when the time already became noon, we stopped the carriage and had lunch.
The lunch we were eating was, of course, given to us by Dee, but I noticed something was contained in it when Emilia prepared it.
“Sirius-sama, please look at this.” (Emilia)
There were three letters written with short sentences that were handed to me.
The contents were…
[Please take care. I am praying for your safety.] (Dee)
[Please come back anytime. We’ll be waiting.] (Noel)
“Isn’t that a smart thing to do?” (Sirius)
“Aah, please look at this, Sirius-san. This one is from Noir-chan.” (Reese)
“That’s true. Come and read this, Reus. It is for you.” (Emilia)
“From Noir? What is it?” (Reus)
[When I grow up, please make me your bride.] (Noir)
It was the part that couldn’t be heard during the parting.
It could be because of Noel’s suggestion, but it was a sentence that meant she properly understood Reus’ nature, which means he won’t understand unless it was clearly conveyed.
Well, how is Reus’ reaction, who knew the confession from Noir?
“…Bride? Isn’t she going to make meals?” (Reus)
It goes without saying that he was beaten quite seriously by the two girls.
I am confident about the education of fighting, but how did I make a mistake in the education of the opposite sex?
I was reconsidering Reus’ educational objective while picking up Erina’s sandwich in the boxed lunch which was the main menu of [Erina’s Dining Room].

Sirius-sama has left.
I asked you to stay at that time… but to be honest, I wanted you to stay by my side, same way as Noel.
However, Sirius-sama is a great existence who will play an active role in the world, and he is not the kind of person who would want to seclude himself with us. Noel and I don’t have strength like Emilia and Reus, and we certainly will become a burden.
In the past, I decided that that person and me were two different existences, and I thought that when he grew up, he would leave me if my assistance was no longer needed.
However, Erina said to me that I was the one who lost his way.
[Even if we don’t have strength, there will surely be a time when we will be needed by Sirius-sama. Even if you feel miserable or become a burden, I want you to be fully prepared for that time. That’s what it means to be an attendant.] (Erina)
So… I will wait for now.
And if that person wants it, I am determined to come running at any time.
Then, Stella-san, Nokia and Alad quickly returned to work, but surely they must have disappeared for us.
I confirmed that there was nobody in the vicinity, and then I tap Noel’s and Noir’s shoulders, who still kept waving their hands.
“Dear. …It is fine already, right?” (Noel)
And then, I hugged my wife and daughter who jumped into my chest and started crying.
I will definitely protect these lovely existences.
That is the gratitude to that person who thinks that we are family members, and because it is my desire.
A while after Sirius left, there was one big shadow approaching [Erina’s Dining Room].
The magic of Noel is rising up! (Program)
Dee’s cooking kitchen knife cuts the darkness! (Maybe)
As for Noir’s bride training, wrinkles are gathering between Dee’s eyebrows. (Not much related)
(Author: Next time… [G] will appears in [Erina’s Dining Room].)
“Another, please.” (Reese) (TLN: Okawari onegaishimasu)
“I want more, Aniki!” (Reus)
“Another, please.” (Reese) (TLN: Okawari onegaishimasu)
“Dee-nii, give me more.” (Reus)
“Another (getting shorter).” (Noel) (TLN: Okawari)
“Fuu… it was delicious. I’m full.” (Reus)
“Ano-…(and shorter)” (Noel) (TLN: Okawa)
“A-…(and shorter)” (Noel) (TLN: O)
“Reese-ane, by the way, it is because she’s a beastkin, not a baby, right?” (Reus)
“Eh? It isn’t like that. Look, I have no ears nor tails, right?” (Reese)
“But why can you eat so much?” (Reus)
“Hmm… I’m not sure. Aah, Tou-sama eats more than me. I usually keep it down, but Nee-sama was lamenting that all the ingredients in the kitchen at the castle had disappeared when we were eating all out. Therefore, we were forbidden from eating like that.” (Reese)
“Is it because Reese’ inheritance…?” (Sirius?)
Emilia and Reese finally snapped at Reus, who read Noir’s letter and his bursting natural airhead.
“Act properly! Becoming a bride is very important for a girl!” (Emilia)
“If you don’t understand… I’ll make you understand!” (Reese)
“Err… Nee-chan? Reese-ane? Both of you are somehow amazingly scary… gyaaaahhh!” (Reus)
One hour later…
“A BRIDE IS IMPORTANT… NOIR IS IMPORTANT… MAKE HER… A BRIDE” (Reus) (TLN: It was all written in katakana)
“He was splendidly brainwashed again. With this… right?” (Emilia)
“WHEN THE TIME COMES… NEE-CHAN… GOES TO BED… AND ANOTHER… REESE-ANE… ALSO GET’S ON…” (Reus)
“…You guys, why are you turning away? Look at me.” (Sirius)
By the way, Reus recovered by the next day.
It seemed he had no memory of the brainwashing.

(Author: It is a sequel, but with a slightly different setting.)
The oven which Sirius used to bake cakes was not used every day, and the calorific value was maintained since it was not used for a long time.
Since one has to pour their mana in to use it to bake and cover the mana insufficiency, cakes can’t be mass-produced.
In the case of Sirius, he makes them for disciples and individuals, and not for mass production, but since the person himself has an inexhaustible mana, the oven can be used forever.
Rodwell and Magna are helping with the mana inefficiency at Elysion’s Galgan Company, and they have to do it in order to have their own share of cakes.
