“As expected, donuts with raisins are the best.”

“I like plain ones with chocolate. The special feeling of enjoying two flavors in one is great.”

“I’m glad you’re happy.”

While eating the bite-sized donuts fried at Tyran-san’s request, we had a peaceful time.

Even though we haven’t seen our flowers bloom during the rainy season, there’s no need to rush. We can patiently wait for the joy of blooming someday.

As I pour tea into our cups, I also pick up a donut. 

Today’s snack distribution is done, and we have a stockpile.

I have promised Tyran-san to study with him in the evening, and tomorrow, I plan to hold a human cuisine research meeting with Migi-san and Hidari-san from the morning.

“It’s been almost a year since Tyran and Dairy came here, hasn’t it? Shouldn’t we celebrate?”

“Celebrate, you say?”

“Just like when we had snacks in the courtyard, we can gather everyone and have snacks together.”

“You just want to eat crepes again.”

“The crepes were delicious, but it’s not just that! It was fun to prepare together. It was my first experience like that.”

That day was truly enjoyable. The rabbit plushie that Orphemia-san gave me as a souvenir is still displayed by my pillow.

It was placed on the table during the crepe gathering. Since it was given to all participants, I’m sure Demon King-sama and Tyran-san also treasure it.

“At that time, I was just eating. If there’s a next time, I’ll help with something.”

“Really?!” 

“We’ll all do it together, right?”

“Yes!”

It’s been almost a year since I came to the Demon King’s Castle.

Recently, I have been having even more fulfilling days than before.

But that enjoyable time suddenly changed in an instant.

A letter fell in front of Tyran-san. It seemed to have fallen from nowhere. It’s teleportation magic.

I have become quite familiar with it in the past year. He catches it and checks the address.

“Ah, the schedule for the festival preparations has been decided.”

It seems to be a letter from someone in the human realm. Come to think of it, he mentioned being forced to help with festival preparations a while ago.

Tyran-san seems to think it’s about that. But gradually, his eyebrows furrow.

It’s been a while since he made such an expression. It’s the same face I saw many times when I first came to the Demon King’s Castle.

Although tiredness and sleepiness sometimes show on his face, he hasn’t made such an expression recently. What could have happened?

Even Demon King-sama stops eating, sensing something is wrong.

“What’s the matter?”

“It seems to be a national defense crisis. They want me to come as soon as possible. But there are no details written.”

“Have you heard anything about demons rebelling?”

“…I’ll be back soon. It doesn’t seem like I’ll be able to return today or tomorrow, but I’ll contact you if I find out anything.”

Tyran-san stuffs the half-eaten donut into his mouth and finishes his tea. 

While wearing a genuinely displeased expression, he starts drawing the teleportation magic circle. It seems he will teleport to the human realm without even going to his room to get his belongings.

“Tyran-san, please wait a moment!”

I run to the kitchen and pack the donuts I prepared for myself in a bag. Then, I haphazardly stuff cookies and muffins from the stockpile into similar bags, making three of them.

Migi-san and Hidari-san are very surprised, but there’s no time to explain. I tell them I’ll talk later and return to the king’s chamber.

The teleportation magic circle is already nearing completion. It seems I made it in time.

“Here! Please take these with you.”

“Snacks, huh?”

“I’ve cast a preservation magic on everything except the donuts, so they should last for a while. Please eat them when you’re hungry in the human realm.”

“I appreciate it.”

Tyran-san smiles softly. He puts the snack set in his pocket and steps onto the teleportation magic circle. His figure is already gone, leaving only the freshly written teleportation magic circle.

From the moment the relaxed time crumbled until now, it was truly a short time.

Sitting on an empty chair, I mutter to myself.

“What is a national defense crisis?”

“Conflict doesn’t only occur between different races. Even if demons and humans have made an agreement, it doesn’t guarantee peace… By the way, don’t you have any cookies for me?”

“I thought you would say that, so I brought Demon King-sama’s share as well. I was in a hurry, so they might be broken.”

“As expected of Dairy!” 

Demon King-sama’s eyes sparkle as he receives the bag from me. He picks up the cookies that have become easier to eat and happily resumes snack time.

Tyran-san doesn’t seem to be worried at all. He must have trust. I haven’t reached that level of acceptance. Whether the enemy is a demon or a human, things that worry me are still worries.

I hope he returns without any injuries…
