The next day.

The villagers’ spirits are lifted after being served stew.

But for Marie, that doesn’t matter.

Once she’s finished eating the delicious breakfast stew made by Kaito, she plans to leave immediately.

“Witch-sama, I have a request.”

“What is it, Kaito?”

Marie was just slurping stew at a restaurant.

“The villagers have asked me. . . . . . if you could provide some means of protection.”

『Protection? Ah, you mean from the Yokai?』

Currently, the Far East is suffering great damage due to the Yokai unleashed by the Sorcerer King.

Because of the Yokai, the villagers can’t lead a normal life.

“Means of protection, huh. . . . . .”

『Hey, hey, boy. That’s impossible. This selfish witch isn’t the type to help people.』

Ose is right.

Marie is a woman who acts only to satisfy her own appetite.

It’s unthinkable that she would act to help others.

. . . . . .However.

“? What are you talking about? Hasn’t she always been a wonderful Witch-sama who helps the weak?”

『Ah, so that’s how it looks through your clouded eyes. . . . . .』

Everything the Witch does is for her own sake.

From Kaito’s point of view, Marie appears to be a hero of justice because she ends up helping people.

“Please, Witch-sama! Could you grant some means to protect the villagers?”

“. . . . . .Hmm.”

Marie obviously has no obligation to protect them.

She was about to say no, but. . . . . .

“If things continue like this, they won’t be able to produce rice. . . . . .”

“. . . . . .This village makes rice?”

“Yes.”

“I see. . . . . . Fine then.”

Marie nods deeply and stands up.

“Gather the villagers.”

“! Alright then. . . . . .”

“I guess I have no choice but to grant you some means of protection.”

“Wow! You’re as amazing as ever, Witch-sama! You really are a kind person who protects the weak!”

Watching all this, Ose sighs.

『She’s not doing it out of kindness. She’s probably just scheming to secure a rice supply for her sushi.』

“? There’s no other reason.”

The only reason she came to the Far East was to eat sushi.

Sushi requires white rice.

So, she thought it would be easier to get rice if she did the village a favor.

『Both the kid and the villagers are unlucky to have her as their savior. . . . . . Ugh!』

Ose is crushed by the weight of the wind.

Marie sighs as she sips her after-dinner tea.
