Chapter 35: Flower risotto

Daniel and Diana moved to the inn’s kitchen.

“Just in case. . .ta-da!”

Diana took out a bag she had brought and showed the preserved edible flowers.

“Oh, so this is that flower.”

The head chef also arrived and gazed at the unusual flowers.

“These pink flowers, in particular, have a spicy taste like mustard greens. So, I thought maybe we could use them in a meal instead of sweets. . .Chef, do we have rice?”

“We do. What are you planning to do with it?”

“I want to make risotto. And add cheese and some spicier herbs.”

“If it’s herbs you’re looking for, we have arugula.”

“Well, that’s perfect!”

Following Diana’s instructions, the head chef put broth and rice in a pot and simmered it. They reduced the moisture more than usual to make a firm risotto.

Diana boiled the blue and pink flowers next to it, kneading them with salt. She did the same with the arugula. When the chef’s rice was al dente, he took it off the heat and Diana mixed it with cheese.

“It’s the perfect firmness. I’ll sandwich the arugula in this risotto.”

She sandwiched the arugula between layers of rice like mini cakes, shaping the risotto into a cylinder, and firmly pressed the salt-preserved flowers on top.

A risotto abundant with flowers, like something made in a child’s pretend play from long ago, was complete.

“Wow. . .It turned out just as I imagined!”

Diana couldn’t help but jump up and down. The head chef laughed and said,

“This is interesting. It looks like a cake.”

“Let’s serve it right away.”

They made several of the same dish and put them on a cart, which the head chef then carried. Walking together behind him, Daniel suddenly muttered next to Diana.

“I wonder what would have happened if you and I got married.”

Diana glanced at him from the corner of her eye and kept her expression neutral, looking straight ahead.

“I’m sorry, but I think I would have been unhappy, for sure.”

Not understanding her true intentions, Daniel fell silent. The butler opened the door, and Diana and the others stepped back into the garden.

As the new dish was presented to the circle of nobles, a loud cheer erupted. The women flocked to the cart, going wild over the beautiful flower risotto.

Amidst the clamor, Daniel asked Diana.

“Why do you think you would be unhappy if you married me?”

Diana answered without making eye contact.

“. . .I don’t think I could ever truly love a husband forced upon me.”

“Is that so?”

“I’m the type who wants to be pursued, not the one who gives love.”

“Hmm, you’re surprisingly passionate. . .I don’t understand what’s so appealing about a farmer like him.”

“Everything.”

“I see. I can’t comprehend willingly choosing a life of poverty. . .”

“Fufufu. Is it possible, Daniel-sama, that you’re trying to woo me?”

Caught off guard by Diana’s unexpected counterattack, Daniel stumbled.

“. . .! Ridiculous. You’re reading too much into it.”

“Oh, when it becomes inconvenient, you run away. That’s your style. Push and pull, deceive each other. Play those mind games with another woman. I, being clever, am not fond of talkative men.”

Daniel fell into deep thought. Diana, finally adding flowers to all the hats, walked over to Leon, who was taking a break, and sat down next to him.

“Leon, well done. The hat bouquet demonstration was a success.”

Leon leaned against the bench and smiled, extending his palm to Diana, showing her what was inside.

In his hand were three silver coins. Diana also leaned in and sat on the bench.

“Oh, did you receive a tip?”

“Yeah. I didn’t expect it, though.”

“I see.”

“They asked me to come again. They want me to go around boasting about it.”

“Fufu. It saved on advertising costs.”

“Diana. . .Aurel-sama seems to be possessing you again.”

Diana rested her head on Leon’s shoulder.

Suddenly feeling tired, she closed her eyes.

“That risotto, did Diana come up with it?”

“Yeah.”

“Amazing. You should do it at a restaurant.”

“Yeah.”

“I wonder what you’ll make next when another flower blooms.”

“. . .”

“Diana?”

“. . .Mm.”

“. . .Are you sleepy? Maybe we should go home soon.”

“. . .”

“I don’t think we can ride a horse. . .Can we rest at the inn for a bit?”

Leon left Diana, who was slumped on the bench, and went to look for Ilsa for permission.

“Ilsa-sama? Gustav-sama?”

As he entered the inn, Ilsa’s voice suddenly thundered down.

“I’m leaving! I’ve had enough of this life!!”

Leon looked around nervously. From the second floor, he encountered Ilsa coming down, sobbing.

“Get the coachman! Summon the coachman!”

Ilsa ordered the butler, rushing towards the entrance.

As she almost collided with Leon, Ilsa saw this as an opportunity and loudly declared to him,

“I’m leaving this place!”

Leon’s eyes widened.

“Let me stay at your mountain cabin! It’s settled!”

Without giving Leon a chance to respond, Ilsa left the inn, leaving him with a bewildered expression.

Next, when Diana woke up, she found herself riding in a carriage with her sister. Startled by the unexpected sight, she looked out the window and saw Leon riding alongside the carriage on Regina. It seemed that he had carried and placed the sleeping Diana in the carriage. But why was she being transported in a carriage?

“. . .What on earth is this?”

“Diana, are you awake? I’ve decided to leave the inn. Let me stay at your cabin for a while.”

Diana almost fell off her chair in surprise.

“What?! I didn’t agree to that. . .”

“Forget about Gustav. He’s all talk and no action, after all.”

Diana gazed sadly at her sister’s beautiful profile.

In Ilsa’s eyes, there were glimpses of a strong determination.
