“If the number of bodies increases, wouldn’t the energy consumption also increase?”

“Since the bodies and stomachs become smaller, the amount required per head decreases. It would be more efficient to divide and search for energy sources. With three heads, we can also surround the prey.”

“Prey… Even if we were to create them, we can’t possibly bring them into the kitchen, right?”

“If you’re the Demon King, can’t you do something about them? You have a communication device, don’t you? Why not ask?”

“Oh, right.”

I take out the communication device I had with me and connect it to Demon King-sama.

As soon as it connects, the question that comes out of Demon King-sama’s mouth is, “Couldn’t you do it, Tyran?” An annoyed Tyran-san leans in from the side, bringing his head closer.

“Don’t make it sound like I’m weak.”

“What if something happened to Tyran?”

Actually… To explain the situation, Demon King-sama was impressed! He bursts into laughter and asks us to come to the king’s chamber just as we are, saying that he wants to see it.

He says that he will take care of things until the steamed buns are ready.

When we arrive at the king’s chamber, it goes without saying that Demon King-sama laughs even more happily.

I make steamed buns for the hungry Demon King-sama, who cunningly demands his share, and the hungry little puppies. 

I thought I made a large quantity, but it wasn’t enough, so I made additional ones… and repeated the process. The Cerberus is satisfied after devouring more than ten each.

They return to their original forms and walk away with a trot.

By the time they return, I am exhausted, both physically and mentally, and the planned question time is postponed.

I return to my room and dive onto the bed.

Although there is physical fatigue from going back and forth multiple times, most of it is mental fatigue. I never thought they would eat that much.

Perhaps healing magic won’t work. Still, with a light feeling of “if it works, it’s lucky,” I lie down and cast a magic spell on the bed.

Then Ciel-san sympathized with me, saying that it was unfortunate.

It wasn’t just a coincidence that she happened to come for cleaning, but she came to check on me after hearing about Cerberus-san’s situation.

Apparently, they are not always like that, but today the servant in charge of their meals happened to be slightly late compared to the usual time. There was no need to bake such a large amount of steamed buns after they had already eaten.

I could see their cute side, but I’ve learned my lesson.

I wrote “Do not overfeed them!” in bright red bold letters in my mental memo.

But this was just the beginning.

I was awakened from my sleep without having dinner by the sound of someone knocking on the door more and more forcefully.

――What on earth happened?

Did an intruder appear in the Demon King’s Castle? Even after making peace?

No, did someone who wasn’t satisfied with the peace agreement come?

My panicked mind, just waking up, is filled with fear that the door will be kicked down. 

I tremble uncontrollably, unable to even reach for the communication device placed by the bedside.


The silhouette that appears behind tightly closed eyelids is that of a man. A familiar back. But that person will never turn around.

He won’t come. Because he abandoned me.


Yes, he didn’t come. But now, a gentle wizard is enveloping me.

Perhaps he was in the middle of making a potion, as there is the scent of herbs coming from his body. He must have used teleportation magic to fly here.


“It’s alright, you’re safe. The one outside the door is not a suspicious person. It’s probably Cerberus.”

“Cerberus… from yesterday?”

“Are you feeling a little calmer?”

As I imagine the presence on the other side of the door and listen to his voice, I calm down slightly. But the fear hasn’t completely disappeared.

My hands are still trembling. I unconsciously grip Tyran-san’s clothes as he tries to move away.


“I’m, I’m sorry.”

“Even if it’s not Cerberus, I will protect you. Don’t worry.”

Tyran-san gently pats my head and whispers. With those words, the fear slowly dissipates from my body.

“Can I open the door?”

I nod slightly, and Tyran-san walks confidently towards the door.

“Here we go,” he says, and then opens the door. 

Then, three dogs rolled into the room. As Tyran-san suspected, the source of the sound was yesterday’s Cerberus.

Since there are three of them, they must be hungry.

They must have recognized my scent and come all the way here. As the mystery was solved, I finally relaxed, and Tyran-san’s eyes twitched.

“You guys, sit over there.”

He gave instructions in a low voice.

The dogs instinctively sensed something and let out a small whimper as they sat down. They lowered their heads, and their bodies seemed to have shrunk a bit.

Tyran-san calmly listed what was wrong with them. Even though they are demon beasts, he showed no mercy.

Do you understand? His intimidating approach honestly scares me.

But he is angry for my sake. It is to prevent secondary harm.

He has taught them the basic set of sitting, lying down, and waiting, as well as the danger of continuously banging their heads at the door.
