The Abandoned Saint Became the Snack Attendant for the Childish Demon King – Chapter 5

“By the way, when I heard about the clothing store, did they also say that there is a shop nearby where you can eat delicious foreign sweets? “

The foreign sweets are referring to churros. Apparently, they fry them on the spot when you order them. At that time, I would definitely recommend ordering the hot chocolate that they sell together. 

The strength of the Apprentice Saint who told me that was tremendous, and thanks to her, I was able to remember it. 

They say that fatigue disappears when you eat anything with it. 

I dug up the buried conversation in my memory and remembered the location. Was it the third one on the second cross street? It’s uncertain, but apparently there is a bench in front of the store. 

If worse comes to worst, I can just look for it. The desire of the Apprentice Saint to eat churros, which they all agree are delicious, won out over the worry of getting lost. 

Especially since I will be leaving the capital soon. It’s also good to aim for the birthplace of churros if you like them. 

In any case, I must eat those exquisite churros!

Considering that I don’t know how much income I will be able to earn in the future, and that I haven’t even decided where to live or work, I know it’s better to minimize expenses. However, I couldn’t resist.

After a little hesitation, I energetically order, “Churros and hot chocolate, please!” at the shop I finally arrived at.

The coins I handed to the shopkeeper are cheaper than the cost of a set of clothes, but slightly expensive when considering it as street food. The shopkeeper responds with a drawn-out “Sure,” and throws the received coins into a can. After wiping his hands with a cloth, he drops the dough into the oil. 

The batter dispensed from the star-shaped piping bag gradually changes into a delicious-looking color. Perhaps because it’s early, there is no one else besides me. I gaze intently at the confectionery in the pot as it nears completion. After lightly draining the oil, it is handed to me along with a cup of chocolate.

“Be careful, it’s hot.”

“Thank you!”

As I peer into the cup I received, I notice that there is surprisingly little chocolate inside. Huh? When I raise my gaze, the shopkeeper points to a cup placed next to the pot.

It’s the same as the cup I received. However, upon closer inspection, there is a red line drawn inside that cup. The chocolate in my cup is also filled up to roughly the same line.

It seems that cup is meant to indicate the amount of chocolate. They probably show it in advance to avoid any disputes after handing it over.

Well, this amount seems just right for enjoying the taste variation. Satisfied, I sit on a bench in front of the shop. Let’s savor the freshly fried churros right away.

First, I take a bite as it is. The ones sold in Japan are often on the moist side, but these churros have a crispy exterior. I personally prefer them crispy, so I’m very happy. I narrowly avoided eating them carelessly and regretting it later. After eating a little more, I dip them in the hot chocolate.

“Delicious. . .” 

Indeed, it is a confection that even the Apprentice Saint praises. It’s not something I would pay a high price for just because it’s an unusual foreign sweet. The chocolate is less sweet compared to the ones from my previous life, but it goes well with churros. Once you taste this flavor, you can understand why people always order it as a set.

Although it is considered expensive, it’s not an exorbitant price, simply because sugar and chocolate are expensive. The fact that Apprentice Saints who come repeatedly can pay the money willingly is probably one of the reasons.

In the creations of my previous life, sugar and chocolate were often depicted as luxury items for the nobility. But in this world, they are widely loved enough to be used in street stall sweets.

Although it may be expensive, with a little effort, even commoners can afford it. For celebrations like weddings, cakes with plenty of sugar are lined up. As a lover of sweets, I find it grateful.

After finishing the chocolate on the cup, I stand up. I bow my head to the shopkeeper and start walking on the road leading to the church.

Indeed, sweets are wonderful. They always gently envelop you, no matter the situation. Even now, I feel like it gave me a little push. Right now, I’m just eating, but when things settle down, I want to try making sweets too.

I loved making sweets in my previous life and in this life as well. It’s not just about eating; I enjoyed the process of making and having someone else eat what I made. Since coming to the capital, I haven’t had the opportunity to make them at all, but back when I was in the village, I often made snacks and treated them to my family and Jude. 

It may be difficult to have someone else eat them like in those days, but there’s nothing wrong with making them solely for myself.

When I reached the alley near the dormitory, I encountered a certain person.

“Maylene-san, I was just thinking of going to see you.”

“Uh, did I do something wrong. . .?”

It was Saint Olivier-sama. She served as the Great Saint until the princess awakened her light power. Due to her considerable age, she stepped down from the position of Great Saint five years ago and now serves as the supervisor of the Apprentice Saints.

She has been taking care of me since I became an Apprentice Saint and is also someone I admire.
