Witch Marie defeated a demon in the Fairy World.

“Alright, time to go home.”

『Please wait!』

Appearing before her was a palm-sized woman with wings. 

She wore a crown and was filled with magical power, unlike the other fairies.

The other fairies flocked to her.

『Fairy Queen!』『You look well!』『We’re so relieved!』

The fairies cried tears of joy.

Kaito, a beast-eared chef, tilted his head in confusion.

“Witch-sama, who is that?”

“That’s Cherish.”

“! So she’s the Fairy Queen…”

Fairy Queen Cherish approached Witch Marie and bowed her head deeply.

『It’s been a long time, Witch Goddess Lovmarie-sama.』

“You look well, Cherish.”

『Yes, thanks to you.』

Marie had once saved Cherish’s life when she wasn’t yet a queen. 

Cherish remembered that favor.

“You recognized me easily.”

『I would recognize that strong, radiant soul anywhere. No other soul is as strong and beautiful as yours, Marie-sama.』

“Sure, whatever. I’m leaving.”

Marie began to walk away.

『Please wait! I haven’t yet thanked you! You saved the world, and you saved me twice!』

But Marie said, holding a flower she had just picked:

“This flower is thanks enough.”

She had only wanted the nectar from the flower in the first place.

“Goodbye.”

『Woooooooo! See you sooooooon!』

The Fairy Queen prostrated herself before Marie.

Just as Marie was thinking she might squash her, Cherish spoke.

『This can’t be settled with just a flower! You’ve saved the world and a queen’s life twice!』

“That’s why this flower is enough.”

『Oh my! How generous of you!』

Hearing the Fairy Queen, the other fairies also cried tears.

『To save the world and be satisfied with just one flower』『The selfless Witch-sama is amazing!』『Such consideration to not make us feel indebted is wonderful!』

Apparently, to the fairies and Kaito, Marie seemed like a “selfless hero who helped but asked for nothing.”

They were sorely mistaken.

This selfish witch was only ever motivated by her own desires.

Marie had already got the flower she needed for her honey toast. Her objective was complete. She needed nothing else.

She meant it, yet. . . . . .

『We can prepare 80,000 gold coins for you!』

“I don’t need it.”

『How about a legendary magical crystal?』

“I don’t need it.”

『A relic from the Fairy Realm. . . . . .』

“I said, I don’t need it.”

『Oh my! How amazingly selfless! Woooooo!』

. . . . . .This was starting to get annoying. Marie was getting irritated. She just wanted to go home and eat her honey toast.

She was thinking of erasing the obstacle.

『Please let me thank you! I can’t bear it anymore!』

“Ah. . . . . .”

Annoying. Should I erase her? No… wait.

“Indeed. . . . . .there was wheat here, wasn’t there.”

『Uh huh… Wheat, yes. We have it.』

“That’s it. Fill a bag with wheat, and do it right away. That should suffice.”

The bread for the honey toast. Wheat is needed to make it.

The wheat from the Fairy Realm was supposed to be sweet and delicious.

If we use that to make bread, it’ll surely be delicious.

Fairy Honey + Bread made from Fairy Realm’s Wheat (tasty) + Skilled Chef = Super Delicious Honey Toast (←Conclusion)

『Witch-sama. . . . . .what a wonderful person you are. . . . . .we who have been saved are trying not to be a burden.』

“Just bring it to me now. Immediately. Now.”

I was about to turn her into ashes if she wasted one more second talking.

The Fairy Queen and the fairies seemed to agree, and they quickly prepared the wheat.

Moreover, they brought mountains of it instead of just one bag.

“Wow! Amazing! I’ve never seen such high-quality wheat before! Is it really okay for us to have it?”

When Kaito asked the Fairy Queen, they nodded with a smile.

『Of course. But, is this really enough, Witch-sama?』

Marie started to gather fire magic in her right hand. She was about to annihilate them.

“Witch-sama! With this much, we can have super delicious bread every morning even after making the honey toast.”

“Hmm, I approve.”

If we can have super delicious bread every day, then it’s fine.

For Marie, deliciousness is the top priority.

Still, the fairies were greatly moved by Marie’s lack of greed and bowed down on the spot.

『Thank you very much, Marie-sama. We will pass down the favor you’ve done for us for generations.』

“Meh. See you.”

『Ha ha! Thank you very much!』

Saying that, the fairies transported Marie and her company back to their anywhere-restaurant.

Marie was at her limit.

“Kaito. . . . . .hurry. . . . . .honey toast. . . . . .”

“Understood! I’ll make it right away!”

. . . . . .Marie sat down in a chair and sighed.

『You look tired, Miss Witch.』

“. . . . . .Huh?”

On the table, a black cat had appeared.

It had eyes of different colors, jade green and golden.

“Who are you?”

『Forgot me already? It’s me, me! Ose, the demon!』

The demon who had been causing chaos in the Fairy Realm appeared in front of Marie.

As for Marie’s reaction. . . . . .

“Is the honey toast ready yet?”

She sighed deeply, looking troubled. She couldn’t care less about the demon.
