“How about a lucky bracelet for your sister?”

“My sister is already happy enough. No problem.”

“Then, how about for Onii-san?”

“Having such a cute sister, aren’t I already happy?”

“What about a popular stuffed animal for girls?”

“Not needed.”

“This ribbon is a specially made one woven in the neighboring country. Please have the Onii-san over there take a closer look.”

“My sister suits simple things more than flashy ones.”

Even we, who clearly look like siblings, are occasionally approached. 

With Tyran-san’s siscon act and cold gaze combo, we smoothly make our way, but young men and women are highly likely to be approached.

If you don’t need it, you can just refuse like Tyran-san, but it takes mental energy to escape from the enthusiastic words of the street vendors. 

I also don’t feel confident in safely getting out alone. I just stick closely to Tyran-san. Then, his hand reaches out.

Is he trying to make sure we don’t get separated? I’m not so young that I have to hold hands. But for a brother who dotes on his sister, holding hands is normal, I suppose.

I slowly grip his hand, he continues to pull me along.

The destination, the bookstore, is bigger than I imagined.

It’s about the same size as the town hall. Without getting lost inside, Tyran-san confidently moves forward. Then, he stops right in front of a certain shelf.

“The cooking books are here. Sorry, but I’ll go check the other shelves. I plan to come back once I’m done, but just in case, I’ll give you a watch. If you don’t see me even when the hour hand reaches the top, wait outside.”

What was taken out of his pocket was a pocket watch that looked quite expensive. It’s not something you would entrust to a stranger, and I remembered it.

“This… could it be a matching set?”

Olivier-sama also had a watch with the same design. It seems she received it as a gift from someone important. Since she had a new watch, she gave me the old one.

I debated whether it was okay to mention Olivier-sama’s name in the human realm and decided to keep it hidden.

Tyran-san seemed to hesitate for a moment, but he quickly arrived at an answer. He nodded.

“Yes, we got them to match.”

When he said “three people,” it meant Olivier-sama, Tyran-san, and who could be the third person?

I was surprised to hear that Olivier-sama was someone important enough for Tyran-san to give a watch to, but I have an idea of who that important person might be to him.

It’s his master. There must be some connection there.

While I was wondering about it, Tyran-san headed towards the intended shelf.

I can’t ask for detailed information while I’m in the human realm anyway. Regaining my focus, I also started searching for books.

Fortunately, there is still quite some time until the needle reaches the top. I can search slowly.

The theme of the book I plan to buy this time is a book that is unlikely to be found in the library. I will exclude the homely snacks from my hometown since there’s no need to look at books for that.

It’s difficult to find the intended book among a large number of books. I usually rely on Orphemia-san for that. I once again realize her greatness. 

Compared to Orphemia-san, I check my books at a slower pace and end up piling up books that catch my interest one after another.

The fact that I may not be able to come back here and the fact that I brought extra money accelerated my desire to buy. Before I knew it, a large number of books had accumulated in my arms.

When I adjust the weight a little and hold them again, a familiar face peeks out from the shoulder.

“Isn’t it heavy?”

It’s Tyran-san. He’s carrying a paper bag from the bookstore. It seems he has already paid.

“Are you done already?”

“Yeah, I found them quite quickly. By the way, are you planning to buy all of those?”

“If I don’t buy them now, when will I? I’m stacking them while calculating, so I’m fine with money.”

I’m good at calculations. I roughly calculate so that I won’t end up saying, “I don’t have enough money” at the register.

“I brought extra money, so don’t worry about money.”

“You brought extra money?”

“From the young master at home. Well, it’s like an expense, so don’t worry about it. Instead, he’ll probably make a fuss about wanting this and that for a while.”

The young master must be referring to Demon King-sama.

I can’t help but let out a chuckle when I imagine his delighted expression at the new snack.

“Rather than that, do you not need any books other than cooking? There were fashion magazines over there.”

“I only need recipe books. There are plenty of regular books. Oh, but if you can buy me a snack book, can I also look at regular cooking books?”

He indirectly seems to be telling me to take an interest in fashion, but I choose to ignore it. 

Even if you learn about the current trends, they will change by next year anyway. When necessary, you can just look at the mannequins in clothing stores.

More importantly, having three meals a day is more important.
