Even though he had finally developed the habit of eating snacks, I did something bad.
I think about whether there is something else I can do as a replacement. Then, a brilliant idea suddenly comes to mind.
“Tyran-san, besides steamed buns, what else do you like?”
An immediate response. Milk jelly is a popular snack for children, just like steamed buns.
On the first day, he made such a disgusted face, but maybe my snacks and his favorite food are surprisingly similar.
I desperately hold back my laughter from spilling out.
“Then, I’ll make milk jelly tomorrow. Look forward to the fruits I’ll put in.”
He seems a little happy. The sharpness of his lips is gone.
Although it’s a slightly different kind of childishness compared to Demon King-sama, I wonder if I can say that he has started to acknowledge me a little by expressing his emotions like this.
Since making milk jelly with mandarins, Tyran-san has gradually started to look forward to snacks. Although not as much as Demon King-sama, he starts taking snack breaks and even requests tea to go with it.
As a result, he has also increased the amount of food he eats.
“It was delicious today too.”
Tyran-san, who came to take the plates, directly conveys that to me, and Migi-san and Hidari-san are already in a festive mood, making sherbet.
One of them uses ice magic, while the other crumbles it, creating the perfect crunchy texture.
The finished sherbet is piled high on the plates, almost overflowing.
Tyran-san, who was waiting in the next room, eagerly starts eating it.
The sight of the mountain of sherbet quickly disappearing is truly impressive. When it’s gone, more is served, and he eats silently.
This is probably why he refused the sherbet.
If he continues to eat at this pace, his work rhythm will definitely be disrupted. Tyran-san himself must have been aware of that.
Although I still don’t fully understand the role of a living being response role, I feel like I’m gradually understanding Tyran-san’s nature.
I wonder if my role was also to give Tyran-san a rest? I’ve started to think that way.
I’ve heard that the amount of healing potions he drinks has decreased significantly in the past few days, but my immediate goal is to reduce it to almost zero. This is more urgent than anything else.
If we don’t hurry, this person will collapse. It’s dangerous to underestimate him just because he’s young.
With each new side of Tyran-san that I discover, he becomes an even more impossible-to-ignore presence.
“By the way, Dairy, aren’t you going to eat? It’s delicious, you know.”
With a spoon in his mouth, he looks at me.
Tyran-san has already finished his third serving. He must have finally settled down.
“I’ll have some. But before that, can I contact Demon King-sama?”
When I ask Migi-san and Hidari-san, they nod approvingly.
If I don’t contact him now, he’ll sulk again. Both of them understand that.
On the other hand, Tyran-san tilts his head curiously.
He seems to be saying, “Didn’t you already give him the snack?” I ignore him and activate the communication device.
“I’m currently having Migi-san and Hidari-san make sherbet. Will Demon King-sama also have some?”
“I want it!”
Receiving Demon King-sama’s energetic response, Migi-san and Hidari-san diligently start making a new batch of sherbet.
The finished sherbet is piled high on the plates, and I head towards the second snack delivery of the day.
“I have the sherbet for you.”
As I enter the king’s chamber with the sherbet, Demon King-sama jumps down from the platform, peeks at my hands, and exclaims, “Oh!”.
According to what I heard from Migi-san and Hidari-san, even demons who don’t usually eat meals enjoy eating sherbet. They say that around this time of year, they come to the kitchen for it.
They told me that sometimes they only make the base, and the demons freeze it themselves.
It seems that the desire for something cold and delicious is the same for both humans and demons.
Demon King-sama immediately starts digging into the sherbet with his spoon.
“Tomatoes were good, but this is also good. . .Hey, Dairy, is there anything else cold and delicious?”
Demon King-sama asks with a mischievous look while holding the spoon to his lips.
Despite that, there is a clear appeal coming from those eyes that they want to eat chilled tomatoes again. I will prepare chilled tomatoes again.
By the way, are they really delicious when they’re cold?
When you think of tomatoes, you associate them with cucumbers or watermelons, but when you think of sherbet, you associate it with frozen apples or ice cream. Thinking about it, I suddenly remember that I have never eaten ice cream in this world.
In the first place, I didn’t even know about the existence of ice cream until I remembered my past life.
However, it is possible to make it with the ingredients in the Demon King’s Castle.
There is no freezer, but there is ice magic. I ponder if it’s possible to somehow preserve it for a day, and as I do, the desire to eat ice cream starts to grow rapidly.
