“Can you [wait] now? You won’t do it again, right?”

In response to his gentle question, the Cerberus nodded their heads vigorously, to the point where it seemed like their heads might come off.

“Then, apologize properly to Dairy.”

Following Tyran-san’s instructions, the dogs turned towards me and lowered their heads while making a weak whimpering sound. It seems their training is complete.

“If you don’t do it again from now on, it’ll be fine.”

“I’m glad you forgive them. Now, you can go back to your places. Is Dairy alright now? If he seems fine, call the maid. I’ll go and complain.”

“I’m fine. I apologize for causing you trouble.”

“Don’t worry about it.”

Waving his hand lightly, Tyran-san headed towards the servant in charge of feeding the dogs.

According to what I heard from Ciel-san later, the person in charge was thoroughly scolded.

However, Tyran-san’s appeals were all perfectly reasonable. He dismissed it as their own fault.

“Considering the fear Dairy-sama experienced, it’s fortunate that it ended with just that.”

Her expression was stern, and she seemed slightly angry.

After that, the visits from the Cerberus didn’t stop. They continued to visit my room frequently.

However, thanks to Tyran-san’s lecture, they no longer charge at the door. 

Once they realized that I won’t come out even after barking for a while, they started curling up in front of the door. They also learned to wait in front of the kitchen. They seem to have a high learning ability.

Knowing that they will receive something if they wait, they started coming even when they’re not hungry.

Thanks to that, before I knew it, not only snacks but also feeding the dogs became my responsibility.

Since they don’t even pay attention to the person in charge holding the food box, there’s no other choice.

Moreover, it seems they hold a grudge for being late and sometimes chase after that person while barking.

Since they don’t bare their fangs like when we first met, they’re just playing with them. I have no choice but to accompany them until their interest subsides.

More than that, I have doubts about whether it’s okay for the guard dogs to freely wander around like this, but Demon King-sama, the lord of the castle, doesn’t mind at all.

Occasionally, he peeks at the snacks I put in the Cerberus’ food box and says, “Aren’t there more than mine?” as if competing in the amount of snacks.

The servants were initially surprised, but they learned that there’s no danger as long as they don’t touch them, so they quickly stopped worrying.

They have become accustomed to the innocent sight of them eating snacks and completely obeying Tyran-san.

“This time was difficult too~. I used quite a lot of pages in my notebook, but luckily, there were enough left.”

Counting the remaining empty pages, Tyran-san’s study notebook is now on its eleventh volume, thanks to him frequently buying them for me to study.

As I progress, the difficulty and the consumption of pages in the notebook increase, and the spare notebooks that were supposed to be plentiful have run out. 

Tyran-san will go to the human realm again in five days.

He will go there for material collection and do some shopping on the way back. I’ll ask him to buy it for me then.

And this time, I must make sure to let him pay for the notebooks.

If I give it to him early, he’ll come up with some excuse to push it back, so I’ll give him the payment the day before.

I have finished reading the borrowed grimoire. I want to move on to something new.

That’s right, I’ll go borrow a book on magical tools.

Although it has been on my mind for a while, I decided to put it off until I finish what I have at hand.

I don’t know if the library has books on magical tools in the first place, but if I ask Orphemia-san, she should be able to find them for me.

If I’m going to ask, I also want to prepare a treat.

I had something in mind for the next treat. Jam cookies. It came to me when I was making jam before.

And recently, new members joined the previously round and square cookie shapes. Migi-san and Hidari-san bought cookie cutters that they saw in a snack book. 

They come in various shapes like stars, hearts, flowers, and animals.

Today, I plan to use the flower shape from those cutters. And also a slightly smaller round one.

I’m not just going to put jam on the cookies, I’m thinking of making them into sandwich cookies.

For the top cookie, I will make a small hole in the center so that the jam can be seen. It will be very cute.

I will use apple jam. 

The Demon-san, who grows fruits in the human realm, sent a lot again this time.

I heard from Migi-san and Hidari-san that the apricots were well received last time, so this time there are four different types. The taste and size are completely different.

Not only jam, but it seems like various snacks can be made. I’m grateful.

As usual, Tyran-san, who liked it, was aiming to take home the leftover jam from the snacks.

Before he could take it home, Demon King-sama ate the remaining portion neatly.
