The Abandoned Saint Became the Snack Attendant for the Childish Demon King – Chapter 12

𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐩𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝟏𝟐: 𝐆𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐧 𝐫𝐨𝐨𝐦

“Guide Daili to her room.”

“Understood.”

Demon King-sama, who has finished eating all the steamed buns, gives instructions to a nearby maid.

The demon maid who guided me to the kitchen earlier is the one who will guide me now. Led by her, we walk along a long corridor.

After walking through the splendid corridor for a while, a series of simple doors suddenly appear. It seems that there is a separation between the residential area and the outward-facing area. I must remember the vases and paintings placed around as landmarks so as not to forget the way.

“Demon King-sama has instructed that you are free to change the vases and such to your liking.”

“Eh?”

“For Daili-sama’s ease of remembrance.”

“Ah, thank you very much.”

“No need for thanks.”

I’m not bad at memorizing directions, but the castle is quite large, as expected of a castle. I would definitely get lost if I walked alone. It’s honestly helpful that I can change things to my liking, not just having landmarks.

There were several food-related paintings on the way here. I’ll have them placed at the corners where I turn on the way to the kitchen and the king’s chamber.

However, the original arrangement is probably done considering the overall balance.

Even though there is no longer any conflict with humans, leaving clues to the route to the king’s chamber is undoubtedly a big minus for the Demon King’s Castle.

I don’t like being overly considerate. I should get used to it quickly. 

This is more important than my name. And I vow in my heart to return to the original arrangement as soon as possible.

“This is Daili-sama’s room.”

“It’s spacious. . .and beautiful!”

The room I was guided to is larger than the one I shared with my sister at my parents’ house. It’s even larger than the apartment I lived in in my previous life.

In the center, there is a king-sized bed. Moreover, it has a canopy. It’s something I’ve only seen in manga and anime, but it’s here as if it’s natural.

Truly befitting of a castle. However, the room itself is not extravagant.

On the contrary, it’s extremely simple, with gentle colors. Besides the bed, there is only a desk, a chair, and a closet.

I think some people feel more at ease with various things, but I find simplicity to be calming.

I don’t like the name Daili, but in reality, I am a substitute. Besides, I grew up in a very ordinary family in both my previous and current lives. If an extremely luxurious room were prepared, I would probably feel restless.

I thought the same when I was walking in the residential area, but this place is very calming.

Of course, if I were to encounter a demon with a large body and fangs or horns, the atmosphere would quickly change to a scary one. But even so, if I were told, “This is your room,” I would accept it without any problem. 

“That door over there leads to the restroom and shower room respectively. You are free to use everything in this room. If there is anything you don’t like or need, please use that bell over there. I or someone else will come to assist you. I will take care of cleaning and laundry, so please rest assured. As for meals, please ring the bell at your preferred time, or you can visit the kitchen. The chef will assist you there.”

Being treated like a hotel guest makes me a little nervous, but whether I’m a substitute or a guest, a guest is a guest. If I were to refuse forcefully, it would damage the other person’s position and mood.

There is nothing particularly troubling about entering the room. I nod.

“Understood.”

“Is there anything else you would like to ask?”

“No, I’m fine.”

“Then, if you’ll excuse me.”

I see off the departing maid and immediately head to the closet. I had thought of taking out the clothes that had been kept in a bag since coming to the Demon Realm.

“By the way, it’s a good thing I bought clothes. . .”

With what I’m currently wearing, that makes five sets. If I can have them washed, I should be able to wear them for a while.

Since my height won’t grow anymore, I want to believe they will last for about two years. There is no washing machine, so the fabric should wear out less. Even if they become slightly thin, I don’t mind. 

The problem is that everything I bought is clothes for the current season. In other words, when the season changes and it gets cold or hot, I have nothing to wear.

First of all, I wonder if the temperature in the Demon Realm is the same as the human world. That’s where my doubts begin.

After all, ordinary people have no opportunity to go to the Demon Realm. Even adventurers are said to be a handful of humans who go to the Demon Realm. They must have chosen clothes that prioritize defense and ease of movement rather than clothes suitable for the temperature.

Even if I ask the demons, it’s doubtful whether they even care about the temperature.

“Well, I can ask later. Adapting to this environment is more important than thinking about the future!”

It’s grateful enough to receive rewards and have meals and a room provided. If it gets cold, I’ll borrow something to wear.

Thinking that, when I open the closet, there are rows of women’s clothes inside. And they all look expensive. Opening the closet next to it yields the same result.

I was told that I can use them freely, but I wonder if this was someone else’s room. Maybe I was suddenly told to move here.

Even in a property with furniture from my previous life, it’s not surprising that clothes are not included. It’s not good to mess with things if I’m going to come back for them later.
