The Abandoned Saint Became the Snack Attendant for the Childish Demon King – Chapter 72

𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐩𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝟕𝟐: 𝐄𝐩𝐢𝐥𝐨𝐠𝐮𝐞

After finishing the prepared pancakes, Demon King-sama enjoys the tea.

“By the way, what makes today special?”

“Today marks exactly one year since the day Demon King-sama said he would have a snack lunch with me.”

“Has it already been that long… Time flies.”

Almost a year has passed since then.

I made Tyran-san wait for a really long time. However, he never showed any signs of impatience and smiled beside me.

During our visit to the human realm after a year, all we did was go to a bookstore and buy a large number of books. We also searched for souvenirs for the people who worried about us.

Our actions as a man and a woman who understand each other’s feelings may be slightly off. But it’s still us.

We hold hands that reach out from both sides and visit various shops.

We got caught up in a street vendor, but even the time spent looking at them was enjoyable.

For Migi-san and Hidari-san, I bought spices from the human realm.

For Ciel-san, colorful soaps.

For Orphemia-san, an art book with stained glass from various places.

For Gweil-san, flower seeds from the human realm.

For Meti-chan, a teddy bear.

For Cerberus, dog toys.

But what would be good for Demon King-sama?

With a large number of souvenirs in hand, we go around the same places together.

And then, I suddenly noticed a cake shop’s showcase.

“Hotcakes!” 

Seeing the advertisement for a wedding cake, I remember the promise to have a snack lunch.

Not only did I promise to have lunch, but I also wanted to make hotcakes with ice cream and jam when we returned.

But I was always feeling down and couldn’t fulfill it.

But now, I can bake as many as I want and prepare plenty of ice cream and jam.

When I tell Tyran-san, who tilts his head, about it, he smiles and says it’s a good idea.

After discussing it together, we decided to make it on that day exactly one year from that day.

“Then, let’s choose tea that goes well with hotcakes as a souvenir for the Demon King. “

“Yes!”

The tea leaves we discussed at the tea specialty store seem to suit Demon King-sama’s taste.

But today, it’s not just about eating hotcakes.

There is one more important thing for me.

Now that he is completely relaxed, it’s a chance.

“Demon King-sama.”

“What’s the matter? You’re being formal.”

“It will soon be two years since I came to Demon King’s Castle. Can I continue to work as the snack attendant?”

It will soon be two years since I came to Demon King’s Castle.

I received a message that Olivier-sama will also move here soon. If everything goes as planned, I will no longer be the snack attendant.

But if it’s allowed, I want to continue working as the snack attendant at Demon King’s Castle in the future. 

Please take care of me, I bow my head, and Demon King-sama widens his eyes.

“There is no snack attendant at Demon King’s Castle other than Dairy. It would be troublesome if you were gone.”

All the strength leaves my body with those words.

Tears flow from my eyes, not because I’m sad, but because I’m happy.

Tyran-san and the people of Demon King’s Castle have taught me happiness.

In that place, I have found a proper place for myself. That is what makes me the happiest.

Tyran-san hugs me and says, “That’s why you don’t have to worry.”

“But, if two years have passed, I should change my name. Not Dairy anymore…”

“The Demon King is fine with Dairy.”

“Why?”

“I’m the only one who wants to call you that.”

“Excessive possessiveness will destroy you,” Orphemia said.

“If it’s for Maylene, it’s not a bad thing to be destroyed…”

It’s the first time I’ve been called properly.

My face turns bright red at the words filled with possessiveness. Demon King-sama looks at me with a bewildered expression, then lets out a small sigh.

“I am a good child who can endure. I will continue to call you Dairy. Because I’m a good child!”

I understand what Demon King-sama is demanding as he repeats “good child.”

“I will prepare candy apples.”

“Yes!”

“I want to eat them too.” 

“Tyran is no good. Tyran’s specialty is in the name, while my specialty is apple candy!”

“I see. That can’t be helped.”

The two of them earnestly discussing such a matter was amusing, and a smile escaped me.

They looked at me with curiosity, but soon they started laughing as if my smile had infected them.
