Angelique was awakened by the chirping of birds.
‘It is a beautiful morning.’
Angelique stretches, gets up, and is surprised to see someone standing next to her.
“Good morning,” she says cheerfully to her husband, Serge, remembering that she just got married.
A deep, unmotivated voice replies.
When she looked closer, she noticed dark circles under Serge’s eyes. His good looks were ruined.
“How come you couldn’t sleep?”
“Take a guess…”
She was curious about what he was upset about. Serge turned his head away from her and said, “Hurry up and get dressed.”
“Eh? Kya!” Then Angelique yelled, as she looked down at her nightgown. Serge quickly turned around with a surprised look on his face.
“Don’t look at me, p*rvert!”
“What’s the big deal? I’m your husband!”
“Don’t look at me, husband or not!”
“Don’t be irrational!”
Angelique jumped out of bed and ran to the closet, where she pulled the cord with the bell.
After a while, Mrs. Cello appeared. She smiled meaningfully at Angelique, who had turned bright red.
She chose a light subject “It’s a beautiful morning, isn’t it?” Angelique couldn’t say that nothing had happened, so all she could say was, “Yes, it is.”
‘Mrs. Berean! What a daring nightgown you picked out for me! It’s like I’m not wearing anything at all!’ She feels pretty gross in it, especially in the chest area.
Just thinking about it makes her head almost on fire. Let’s get back to the topic.
For breakfast, they had bread and a soup that consisted of a vegetable broth.
Last night they also had bread, soup, and vegetables.
‘I’m not complaining about the food, but some meat would be nice.’
When she tells Doni she’s going on an inspection tour, he makes her a sandwich.
She takes a peek and discovers a vegetable sandwich.
“Hey Doni…are we having meat for dinner?”
She casually asked while holding the picnic basket, and Doni quickly averted his gaze.
She looked at Serge, who also quickly averted his gaze.
‘I see. That was the unfortunate Count we were talking about. Mrs. Cello said that they couldn’t even buy firewood, and I guess they couldn’t buy meat either.’
“I’m sorry; I heard a few things. It’s okay, I like vegetables too.”
‘That’s right. I like to eat vegetables. But I just preferred meat.’
Still, she didn’t want to be the only one eating good food while her people went hungry.
Angelique reflected on her life at home, which had been far too luxurious.
Serge said he wanted to meet Sari and Lasse before going on the tour.
“All right, just a minute.”
Angelique wanted to see them too, so they both went to the stables.
Sari and Russ were just being fed by Jean and the others.
“Ah!” Angelique exclaimed when she saw what the dragons were eating.
Sari was served a big piece of meat in a tub, and Lasse got the same.
Sarge’s eyes swam uneasily.
“Is meat part of the dragon’s diet?”
“Y-Yes, they eat a variety of foods, but they seem to prefer meat…”
“I prefer meat, too.”
Serge lowered his gaze.
Angelique looked at the dragons as they chewed their pieces of meat and narrowed their eyes in satisfaction.
“But I’m not going to eat their food.”
Serge raises his head.
“Don’t worry about it.”
“Thank you, Angelique.”
‘Sigh’ He’s really only interested in dragons, isn’t he?’
Angelique sighs and ponders.
Dragons are adorable.
Angelique had gotten used to liking them. That’s why she refuses to eat their food, but she wants to eat meat.
Angelique thinks. ‘Then we should just buy more meat.’
“Let’s go right now.”
Serge gave Sari and Lasse a longing look before meekly following Angelique.
