Reincarnated Witch’s Carefree Gourmet Journey – Chapter 12

𝐄𝐥𝐞𝐯𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐆𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭 𝐂𝐫𝐚𝐟𝐭𝐬𝐦𝐚𝐧 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐂𝐚𝐫𝐞𝐥𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐑𝐞𝐦𝐚𝐫𝐤𝐬

Witch Marie and beastman chef Kaito are on a journey.

Their immediate goal is to collect the seven cooking tools that Kaito possesses.

They find one of Kaito’s cooking tools in a magic tool shop. To acquire it, Marie offers a flying magic tool she has (simply a broom from a garbage dump with flying magic applied to it).

Dwarf magic tool craftsman Kinemon is astounded by its quality.

He bows his head to Marie, asking her to take him on as an apprentice.

“I must decline. Goodbye.”

Marie tries to leave in a brisk manner.

Kinemon clings to her leg.

“Please, Master! Teach me the essence of making magic tools!”

“Don’t call me Master without my permission.”

Marie turns her leg partially into wind.

Thud, Kinemon falls to the ground.

“Witch-sama! What was that?”

“Just simple wind magic. A spell that transforms the body into wind for movement.”

By adapting it, she had dodged a physical attack.

Of course, it’s a highly difficult magic spell, and Marie is the only one who can use it, even back when she was the Witch Goddess.

“Incredible, Witch-sama!”

While Kaito sincerely praises her, Kinemon continues to bow repeatedly.

“Please! Take me as your apprentice!”

“I’ve told you, I don’t take apprentices.”

Right now, she’s just hungry.

She wonders what kind of delicious food Kaito will make with the new magic tool.

That’s all that occupies Marie’s mind right now.

However, Kinemon is not backing down.

He repeatedly rubs his head on the ground, begging her.

He holds the title of 【Twelve Leaders】, given to top craftsmen in the dwarf nation of Kai・Pagos.

In other words, he has enough skill to be recognized by the nation.

He is proud of being among the Twelve Leaders.

Among the twelve craftsmen, he considers himself the most skilled.

But that was his arrogance.

He has realized that the beautiful woman in front of him is the world’s greatest magic tool master.

Eyes should not surpass the hand.

As a craftsman like Kinemon, he has cultivated the eyes to discern authenticity.

And he admits it. Marie’s magic tools are incredible.

Marie is an amazing magic tool master.

However. . . . . .

“I’m leaving.”

Even though Kinemon, a craftsman whose name resounds in the world, begs so much, Marie pays him no attention.

“Is there absolutely no chance?”

“No chance. I don’t have the time.”

“!”

No time? Kinemon wonders what that means. Perhaps there’s some deep circumstance.

Well, there isn’t.

As Marie is about to leave, she notices nearby displayed dishes, knives, and forks.

“Oh, aren’t these nice?”

“! R, Really?”

“Yes, they’re lovely. Very nice indeed.”

“!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you!!!!!!!”

Praised by the genius magic tool maker (referring to Marie), Kinemon felt elated as if ascending to the heavens.

“This dishware comes with an automatic cleaning function.”

“How convenient! That’s really amazing.”

As far as Marie was concerned, she only thought of it as handy for eating meals.

On the other hand, Kinemon was choking back tears of emotion.

Praised by the world’s best magic tool maker! This magic tool is the path I must pursue!

And so,

Indeed, Marie taught him.

Not in a hands-on way, but with few words.

She pointed out the path he should take and pursue. No more words or advice were necessary. (Though this is his own interpretation)

“Um. . . . . .please take this dishware.”

“Really? Is that okay?”

“Yes! Just take it for free! It’s a token of my gratitude!”

“Token of gratitude. . . . . .? Well, alright. I’ll take it then. It’s really great dishware.”

(After all, that’s it. Witch-sama has been saying I should specialize in useful daily magic tools rather than weapons!)

※She hasn’t actually said that.

“Goodbye.”

“Thank you! Witch-sama! Thank you very much!”

Even after Marie left, Kinemon continued to prostrate himself on the ground.

Later, he would emerge a changed man, leaving his name in history as a craftsman.

Not focusing on weapon making but dedicating his energy into crafting useful daily items, he eventually gets recognized by the country as the most skilled among the twelve leaders. In technical books, he will be written as the “God of Daily Life Magic Tools.”

『It’s thanks to Witch-sama, my master, that I could come this far. I offer my deepest gratitude to her who guided me.』

. . . . . .Unfortunately, Marie never considered him her apprentice nor did she guide him. Kinemon interpreted her words in his own way, and basically leveled up due to his own efforts.

Until the day he died, he was keen to tell everyone around him that he became amazing thanks to Marie.
