𝐀 𝐛𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐭𝐦𝐚𝐧 𝐛𝐨𝐲 𝐰𝐡𝐨 𝐡𝐚𝐬 𝐛𝐞𝐞𝐧 𝐨𝐩𝐩𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐞𝐝 𝐦𝐞𝐞𝐭𝐬 𝐆𝐨𝐝 (𝐦𝐢𝐬𝐮𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐢𝐧𝐠)

A boy named Kaito was taken in by Marie.

He hails from a remote village known as 【Dead End】.”

The elders living there all possessed special powers.

Kaito too has a skill second to none.

That skill is cooking.

In fact, Kaito’s cooking skills are among the best in the world.

He can transform any ingredient into a top-notch dish. It’s an SSS-ranked skill.

However, no matter how high the skill rank, if the user is mediocre, it’s a waste.

Kaito trained hard. He left the village to become the world’s best chef, worthy of this power.

. . . . . .But the world outside the village was entirely different.

The villagers, who are beastmen like Kaito, did not discriminate against him.

As a village child and as family, they warmly welcomed him. (※Kaito is an orphan)

Outside the village, however, beastmen appeared to be scorned as a mix of humans and animals.

He was oppressed wherever he went. Beaten, kicked, and nobody would listen to him.

Moreover, Kaito was falsely accused of crimes and ended up becoming a slave.

As a slave, Kaito was bought by a wealthy nobleman.

He was worked hard in the kitchen as cooking staff.

Even there, beastmen were discriminated against. He was continuously insulted as “disgusting” and “filthy.”

“Garbage.”

“Disgusting.”

“You stink, you beast.”

Kaito’s self-esteem dwindled as he was continuously insulted.

Everyone in the village had been so warm. . . . . .

The world outside was so cold toward beastmen. . . . . .

He wanted to die, but he endured.

He couldn’t die because he owed so much to the elders who had raised him, an orphan.

He worked hard at the nobleman’s mansion, mocked and treated as garbage by everyone around him.

Not just the nobles but also the cooking staff and other slaves bullied him.

The only reason he could maintain himself mentally was the support from the village elders.

Then, a turning point arrived.

A member of the royal family came to visit an aristocratic mansion.

The nobleman had Kaito cook a feast. He used all his skills to create the best dishes.

Surely, this would satisfy both the noble and the royal guests.

. . . . . .However, what came back were harsh words.

“Who could eat food cooked by a beast? It stinks! Don’t serve me such things!”

. . . . . .He had poured all his technique, the culmination of his efforts, into this top-class full course.

Yet, because he was a beastman, nobody would eat it.

. . . . . .Because he angered a royalty, Kaito was cast out from the mansion and was to be sold off elsewhere.

At this point, Kaito didn’t care. No matter how hard he tried, it was futile.

Being born a beastman was the end of his luck.

As a beastman, his cooking would never be appreciated again.

. . . . . .I want to go back to the village. I want to go home.

To that village where people said my cooking was delicious. . . . . .I want to go back. . . . . .

Just then,

“W, What?! A dragon. . . . . .aaaaarghhhhhh!”

The merchant’s cart carrying Kaito was suddenly attacked by a dragon.

The coachman and the other slaves were all killed by the dragon.

Kaito survived because he had a 【resistance】 against dragons.

Near his hometown, close to the village of Dead End, there was a forest teeming with magical creatures.

Dragons were particularly abundant there. He was used to seeing them, so unlike others, he wasn’t paralyzed with fear.

But that was it.

Kaito was familiar with dragons, but he didn’t know how to deal with them.

Whenever he went to the forest for ingredients, he was always accompanied by the village’s strong warriors for protection.

He knew he was weak and couldn’t win against monsters.

“. . . . . .It’s over. Grandma, Grandpa. . . . . .I’m sorry. . . . . .I couldn’t become the world’s greatest chef. . . . . .”

Just as a dragon lunged at Kaito, a miracle happened.

In an instant, the dragon was reduced to pieces.

“Is this… magic?”

He had heard from the village elders that once, incredible techniques known as magic existed in this world.

Though it’s now in decline, this magic could create storms and shatter mountains.

Wind magic must have been used to dismember the dragon. 

There were descendants of former magicians in his village, so when Kaito saw magic for the first time. . . . . .

He was surprised but readily acknowledged that it was magic.

“. . . . . .”

Who could this person be?

Someone who can use the now-declined technique of magic and defeat a ferocious monster. . . . . .

It’s almost like they’re the legendary 【Witch Goddess Lovmarie】 herself.

Legends of Lovmarie also exist in the village. Someone who was supposedly her disciple lives in the village.

An incredibly old elf, who claimed that Lovmarie was a goddess of benevolence who used her magical powers for the sake of world peace.

. . . . . .That disciple said Lovmarie was noble, beautiful, and. . . . . .kind.

(This person could be the reincarnation of Lovmarie. . . . . .or maybe they actually are!)

. . . . . .It was a miraculous realization, born from coincidence and his own beliefs.

Kaito thought Marie was the reincarnation of the Witch Goddess (and he was actually right).

The legend of Lovmarie has been passed down in a distorted form. 

Why has the witch goddess who once saved the world reappeared?

. . . . . .The answer is clear.

To bring peace to the world!

Later, he cooked a meal for Marie. She complimented his cooking.

“Thank you!”

Kaito cried. Instead of discriminating against him for being a beastman, she praised his cooking.

It was the first time he’d met someone outside his village who said a beastman’s cooking was delicious.

It’s definite now.

This person is the goddess of benevolence, Witch Goddess Lovmarie!

“I’m going on a journey. Will you come with me?”

“Yes! I will accompany you wherever you go!”

Surely, this Witch Goddess is embarking on a journey to bring peace to the world.

He’s been chosen to accompany her on this quest.

He will definitely achieve his dream of becoming the world’s greatest chef if he goes with her.

If he can satisfy and impress a divine palate, he’ll undoubtedly become the world’s greatest chef.

The end.

. . . . . .And so, the oppressed beastman chef became a companion on Marie’s journey.
