On the day I was abandoned by Jude, I thought he had changed since being chosen as the hero.
My future also changed because he was chosen as the hero.
But there were parts of him that I couldn’t see before, and they just came to light.
However, thanks to believing in his words and waiting, I met Olivier-sama and am here now.
I suffered a deep emotional wound and remembered my past life.
But the days at the Demon King’s Castle make me believe that it wasn’t all bad.
“I don’t know when I’ll be summoned again, so I’ll just go to sleep for now.”
“Thank you for your hard work. If you’d like, shall I cast a healing spell on you?”
“Speaking of healing spells, I was saved thanks to the magic applied to the snacks and the vest. If it weren’t for that, I think I would have collapsed. So, as a token of my gratitude, please accept this. I don’t know what’s good since I rarely give gifts to people, but I happened to see this on my way back.”
What was offered was a blue ribbon.
It’s simple, but I’m happy knowing that Tyran-san chose it with me in mind.
“Thank you. I will treasure it.”
“Please cast the healing spell on the vest. I’ll sleep like this. And… sorry to ask, but could you give me another snack?”
“Yes, I will prepare it for you.”
I cast a healing spell on Tyran-san’s vest.
Then, he bows his head slightly and leaves the king’s chamber with a ghost-like gait. It seems he doesn’t even have enough magical power to use teleportation magic.
Demon King-sama, perhaps feeling anxious, instructs a nearby servant, “Support him to his room.”
And as he sits on the throne, he lets out a deep sigh.
“With the way he was, as Tyran said, if it weren’t for Dairy’s magic applied to the vest, he would have collapsed. Humans can be so cruel, exhausting a talented wizard like that.”
“I didn’t apply any magic to the vest, you know?”
Although Tyran-san’s words bothered me as well, I didn’t apply any magic.
But Demon King-sama tilts his head and seems to be saying, “What are you talking about?” He doesn’t seem to be lying, but I haven’t lied either.
“You applied a powerful healing spell, so what are you saying? It’s not a bad thing, so there’s no need to lie.”
“It’s not a lie, I didn’t apply it. It’s true that I have been able to use magic since coming to the Demon King’s Castle, but it’s still impossible for me to use powerful magic. Could it be that Tyran-san has forgotten that he applied it himself?”
“It crossed my mind during the Magic Flower incident, but are you unaware? Perhaps even the magic applied to the usual snacks?”
“I have used it on cooking utensils, but I have never applied it directly to the snacks. Could it be that it only appears to Demon King-sama that the snacks are also enchanted?”
It’s impossible. I throw the question while thinking so.
However, Demon King-sama nods earnestly with a serious expression.
“It’s not as strong as the vest, but it was also applied to the snacks earlier, right? That’s why Tyran recovered enough to stand up.”
“That’s just because his hunger was satisfied…”
“I thought there was something strange, but I didn’t expect it to be to this extent… I see, Olivier knew about this and used my magic as a disguise. Only someone like Olivier would come up with such a thing by searching the entire continent. I must demand an apology apple pie for this. But if that’s the case, I also cast interference magic…”
He seems to have realized something from the conversation just now. He starts muttering to himself.
Even so, I never imagined that I was unconsciously using my power…
If it’s not just the vest, but also the snacks that were enchanted, it means I have been using magic in my daily life. But even if I’m told that, I can’t recall any such instances.
Even if I ask Demon King-sama, he doesn’t seem to be returning from his contemplative state for a while. However, since there doesn’t seem to be any harm, it’s not a problem to postpone it for a little while.
Before the healing spells, the more pressing matter is to make snacks for Tyran-san, who doesn’t know when he will be summoned.
I head to the kitchen and start making several types of snacks.
Although I have some stocked snacks, it would be lonely with just those. However, ease of eating is also important. Several types of cookies.
Among them, I decided to make Tyran-san’s favorite jam cookies using apple, apricot, and peach jam. I pack them in jars and cast a preservation spell on them.
I also pack madeleines, sweet potato steamed buns, and macarons in bags.
It would be difficult to bring milk jelly, so I’ll make sure it’s available to eat when they wake up.
After putting them in the refrigerator, I bring the extra snacks to the king’s chamber.
I wanted to give the donuts to Demon King-sama, who had been holding back. I also brought the apple candies that I made.
However, there was no sign of Demon King-sama on the throne.
I tried to contact him through the communication device, but there was no response. Perhaps he had some urgent matter to attend to. Earlier, he seemed lost in thought about something.
He will probably eat it when he returns.
[I have snacks, so please contact me later.]
I leave a note on the chair with that message. He should contact me after seeing the note. I decided to leave the snacks in the kitchen.
