Limited Time, Kitchen Maid of the Fourth Knight Order ~I Got a Job Because I Don’t Want to Get Married~ – Chapter 95

Marina used the extra ingredients she had brought to immediately start making what appeared to be poison.

Behind Rolf, who is washing his hands, Rene prepares pen and paper and listens intently.

“Can you tell me everything about what’s in the bottle, how it was dried, everything?”

“Yes, sir!”

Marina was initially very nervous, but after a while, the awkwardness disappeared from her speech. It seems that when she talks about something she likes, seriousness overtakes nervousness.

I prepare the mortar and other utensils Marina had used earlier and write down my current physical condition on paper.

Since there are no machines here to quantify things like pulse or blood pressure, I must rely on my own senses.

“What symptoms did you experience after eating this potentially poisonous substance?”

“I started coughing, felt sluggish. . . It’s kind of vague, but it felt like my body was getting weaker. I started getting fevers more easily and such. But I didn’t realize this was the cause, so I kept eating it mixed in with bread porridge.”

“I see, so it was treated like a seasoning.”

Rene provided a clear example that made a light bulb go off in my head.

If I were to make it easy to understand for myself, this poison is akin to soy sauce or spices. Even if you get delicious soy sauce and use it, you wouldn’t suspect it’s the cause. You’d first doubt the ingredients.

Even when you have a cold and eat porridge, you might use soy sauce, and you’d add green onions too.

“If you like this flavoring, you’d use it even if the ingredients change. There must be other combinations, and it’s probably designed to adapt to any kind of seasoning. It’s impossible that Dyson would prepare only one method of poisoning.”

“Uh. . . this hasn’t been confirmed yet. . .”

“Even if it’s wrong, there’s no blaming Marina. Really, thank you.”

“Everything is ready. Marina-sama, please guide us.”

Marina nods, flustered by Rolf’s wink.

I understand. It’s confusing because Rolf keeps giving such perfect winks.

You’d wonder what the winks are for, but for Rolf, it’s as natural as breathing, so don’t worry about it.

As Rolf begins to make a prototype under Marina’s guidance, I find myself with nothing to do, so after seeing Rene taking serious notes, we decide to write down what we’re curious about as well.

“First of all, I’m concerned whether the effect doesn’t disappear when mixed with other things. It might lose its toxicity when dissolved in water. . . This means Dyson has an ally among the cooks. According to Marina-sama, finishing it in an oven at over 200 degrees is part of the process.”

Arthur’s question is beautifully recorded by Chris.

“The effect might vary depending on the type of meat or fish. If they’re researching these, it would require a considerable amount of time, manpower, and expenses.”

Edgardo, who responds, still looks a bit pale.

It’s a critical moment to see how his territory will be treated and whether they will be punished, and it’s understandable he feels anxious as they can’t even make contact.

I’ve heard that His Majesty is investigating the families of Edgardo and Rolf. Until that’s finished, the two are under mild surveillance.

 ㅤ

Roa-sama and everyone else trust that the two would never be involved in such a thing, but feelings and actions are separate matters.

It is precisely because of this trust that Roa-sama said we should monitor and investigate to be able to assert confidently that nothing untoward occurred.

The proud faces of Edgardo and Rolf when they heard this were unforgettable.

The friendship and trust among men are different from that among women. Some things are incomprehensible, but as long as they themselves are satisfied, that must be alright.

“Phew, is it finally over? Quite a complex procedure, isn’t it.”

Rolf, having finished, began to pack the finished product into jars. Probably cooking for the first time, Rolf waved his hand lightly.

“Good work. I’ll leave a note here. Please take a break for a while.”

Chris sealed the jars and affixed a note.

Despite the long skirt of his maid’s uniform, he hurriedly took the jars away.

“To be honest, I don’t know at which step the poison could form. There might be unnecessary steps, but I don’t know. . .”

“Well found! Marina-sama will surely receive a reward too.”

Rolf’s bright smile made Marina breathe a sigh of relief.

“Since we couldn’t find any clues, your information, Marina, is truly invaluable. It’s complicated, and it won’t work unless continued. No wonder the castle couldn’t figure it out.”

“As Rene says. It’s thanks to Marina-sama’s cooperation.”

“Oh dear. . .”

With her face turning red, Marina froze as if overwhelmed, then slowly crept closer to me.

“I understand, Marina. It’s like facial assault. Being bathed in the aura and face of someone like a Johnny’s idol, it’s akin to being blinded.”

“Wow. . . it’s my first time being so close to someone who shines like this. . .”

“Thor is cute, isn’t he.”

“Thor is the coolest in the world!”

After asserting this, Marina, surprised by her own words, blushed even redder and covered her face with her hands.

Despite the situation, it was a little heartwarming. Having a lady fall for Thor, who doesn’t hide his brother complex, is such a joy for a sister.
