Witch Marie had acquired flower nectar in the Fairy Realm.

She was eagerly awaiting the honey toast that Kaito would make in his magic tool, the “Anywhere Restaurant.”

But then appeared Ose, a demon in the form of a cat.

A demon. A creature formed from negative emotions.

They make a pact and, in return for granting power, they possess the contractor to obtain their source of negative emotions.

For example, fear. Or jealousy. Or hatred.

It doesn’t have to be from the contractor themselves. In essence, they use the demon’s power to generate negative emotions in humans and absorb it to become stronger.

『Witch-sama, how about making a contract with me to gain even more power?』

“Is the honey toast ready yet?”

『Hey! Are you even listening?』

Marie was completely ignoring Ose. She had no interest in dealing with this demon.

The last time, she had merely eliminated him because he was a nuisance while she was collecting fairy flowers.

『Come on, please! How about becoming stronger and conquering the world?! Huh?!』

“Not interested.”

She truly wasn’t interested. What would conquering the world even accomplish?

Moreover, Marie was more than powerful enough without making a pact with a demon.

There was not a single merit to making a contract.

『I can create all kinds of poison! Instant-acting, slow-acting, poisons of this world, poisons from other dimensions, any kind of poison!』

“I don’t need it. Poison is too limited in its applications.”

Killing someone with poison was the only thing Marie could think of. But she could easily defeat enemies using magic anyway.

“So, I’m not making a contract.”

『Awww. . . . . .』

“If you want to sway me, prepare something delicious.”

『Impossible! I don’t have a physical body, and I can’t cook like that kid.』

He couldn’t catch delicious things for himself, nor could he cook them.

“Then it’s out of the question.”

『Ugh. . . . . .』

At that moment—

“Witch-sama. . . . . .the honey toast is ready. . . . . .”

“You’ve done well, Kaito!”

Marie’s eyes sparkled, shifting from a bored expression, gleaming like a starry sky.

But Kaito seemed somewhat downcast.

『Hey, beastman kid. Can you wait? I’m currently recruiting Witch-sama.』

“Shut up, you’re disturbing my meal. I’ll banish you.”

『Sorry! Really sorry!!』

The cat demon trembled and prostrated himself on the ground.

Kaito placed the honey toast on the table.

“Ah! How incredibly delicious-looking this honey toast is!”

On top of the thick-cut bread was white ice cream, generously drizzled with honey.

The heat of the freshly baked bread was melting the ice cream.

The honey and melted ice cream soaked into the bread; it simply looked delicious.

“Witch-sama, I’m sorry. I had planned to make the best honey toast. . . . . .”

“? Isn’t this already more than perfect?”

“No, the truly perfect honey toast should be topped with vanilla ice cream.”

“Vanilla. . . . . .?”

It was a word she had never heard before.

“It’s a plant. The essence derived from it—mixed with ice cream—creates vanilla ice cream. That’s what makes the ultimate honey toast. However. . . . . .”

“Hmm. . . . . .So you don’t have this ‘vanilla essence.'”

“Yes, it’s a special plant that only grows in my homeland. . . . . .”

What a surprise! I can’t believe we needed such a special fragrance from such a unique plant!

But even as it is, it still looks tasty. . . . . .

Still, if possible, I want to taste the perfect honey toast. Ah, right now. . . . . .

『I can make vanilla essence, you know?』

“What?! Ose, really?!”

The demon nods and explains.

『I can secrete any toxin that exists in this world. Toxins are basically chemicals. If I mix the chemical components found in vanilla essence. . . . . .』

Ose extends his tail over the honey toast.

A transparent liquid drips from the tip of the tail.

Then, the sweet smell of vanilla tickles Marie’s nostrils.

“What a lovely fragrance! This must be the perfect honey toast! Let’s eat!”

She cuts the honey toast with a knife.

The fluffy bread is mixed with honey and ice cream.

The moment she puts it in her mouth, the aroma of vanilla and the rich sweetness of honey spread. The more she chews, the more the fluffy texture of the bread and the sweetness of honey and ice cream are added.

“Delicious! It’s so good! It’s the best!”

Having never tasted such sweet, sweet desserts before, Marie is extremely impressed.

Meanwhile, Kaito, the cat eared chef, looks at Ose with sparkling eyes.

“If you can make vanilla essence, can you also make things like soy sauce and vinegar?”

『Uh, yes. Not just fragrances, but seasonings as well.』

“Amazing! With Ose-san around, our culinary options will expand!”

Marie nods in agreement.

However, Ose says, 『Well, young master, seasonings and fragrances are just a small part of my abilities. My true power is poisoning enemies to death. . . . . .』

Marie points sharply at Ose.

“You’re hired.”

『Wha?! A, Are you sure?』

“Yes. If we can get seasonings and fragrances!”

『W, Well, I. . . . . .Oh, fine.』

In any form, he was able to make a contract with Marie.

With this, Ose is excited to draw out negative emotions using Marie.

Meanwhile, Marie imagines eating a lot of delicious things in the future and becomes full of happiness.

“Ah! Stop it!”

Suddenly, the demon starts to suffer.

Kaito hastily asks,

“What’s wrong, Mr. Demon?”

『I’m not good with positive emotions! I don’t want them! I want negative emotions!』

“Ahh, this is so delicious, I feel like I’m going to heaven.”

『Stop it! I’m going to be sent to heaven too!』

In any case, a new companion has joined the witch.
