It appears that our luggage has already been brought into the cottage.

Even the suitcase we carried from Vulcano to Binemöer was somehow placed at the entrance.

“Well then, I’ll hand over the keys to the cottage.”

A heavy bundle of keys was offered from Rachael’s hand.

“I’ll also hand over the keys to the rest of the mansion.”

“Er, is it okay for me to keep such important items?”

“Don’t worry. This is a spare that the butler and housekeeper carry around.”

Even though it’s a spare, its purpose is no different.

Into my bewildered hand, the bundle of keys was entrusted.

“Also, I’ll give you this.”

It was a note and envelope with bird feather magic on it.

“If you have any troubles, let me know through this.”

“Thank you.”

Just as I thought Rachael was looking at me with slightly moist eyes, she touched the hand gripping the bundle of keys.

“Lara-san, please take care of grandmother.”

“Yes, I understand.”

Rachael left with a look of reluctance.

I watched her until I couldn’t see her anymore, then turned on my heel.

Florenci was impatiently gazing at the cottage.

“Well then, shall we go inside?”

“Yes, Okaa-san!”

Unlocking the door, we stepped inside.

The interior of the cottage was beautiful with floral wallpaper and solidly built furniture made from walnut wood tastefully arranged.

The leather sofa was comfortable, and didn’t seem tiring even sitting on it for a long time.

The crystal chandelier hung from the ceiling was extravagant and seemed to illuminate the room brightly.

The bedroom had a large bed with superbly light-blocking curtains installed.

The bed was fluffy, smelling of the sun.

The kitchen was furnished with porcelain plates and cups, and silver cutlery, and seemed to have a wide variety of food ingredients.

The bathroom was equipped with a claw-foot bathtub and a wide variety of soaps and shampoos. The towels were fluffy, smelling freshly laundered.

Florenci was energetically exploring the room, exclaiming in admiration.

“Okaa-san, it’s such a lovely home!”

“Yes, it’s too much for us.”

Given such a wonderful environment, we must meet the expectations.

For now, let’s take it easy today.

There was a jar of sable cookies in the kitchen, so I’ll have it as a snack for tea.

There were plenty of tea leaves prepared, enough to make choosing difficult.

I’ll prepare it with plenty of milk for Florenci.

In the kitchen, there was a magic-powered refrigerator.

About the size of two wooden crates stacked on top of each other, it seems to use magic stones filled with magic power as its energy source.

When you open the lid, a cool breeze flows in.

I was surprised, as the main method in Vulcano was to cool things in an ice chamber, a storage room cooled with ice.

It seems that magic for daily life is well-developed in Binemöer, and they say they don’t use firewood for fireplaces or kilns.

I learned how to use it when I was on the ship, but you just touch the magic circle and rub the spell, and you can use it easily.

Boiling water is also instant with magic.

Pour water into a magic stone pot, trace the magic circle with your fingertips to express the magic.

I could hear the bubbling sound of boiling from inside the magic stone pot.

It’s really convenient magic.

The management of the Marquis mansion is done by only a few people, probably because of such life-supporting magic.

I brought a special milk tea, filled with milk and honey, to Florenci.

It seems that Florenci was reading a book he brought from home.

“Ren, let’s take a break.”

“Yes.”

I also handed some rock sugar that was in the kitchen to Ga-chan. She began to gnaw happily.

As I watched Florenci drinking the tea I had brewed with delight, I couldn’t help but think that it was good to come to Binemöer.

I must do anything to protect him.

Even if I have to become someone’s mistress, I want to raise him well.

Again, I held a strong determination in my heart.

“Florenci, what would you like to eat for dinner?”

“I would like to try the dish we make together, Okaa-san.”

“You want to cook? Why?”

Florenci, the next Duke Mendoza, has no need to learn to cook.

I was about to say this when he explained why he wanted to cook.

“I wanted to be of help to Okaa-san. But, that’s not the only reason, I thought that I wanted to acquire the ability to live.”

“The ability to live?”

“Yes. Even if there’s a raw potato in front of me, I don’t know how to eat it. If I were to be alone continuously, I would probably collapse from hunger.”

But, I’m by Florenci’s side.

Upon saying that, Florenci shook his head.

“Okaa-san, people eventually die. Even those who help me and even money, it’s not guaranteed to always be there.”

It seems that through the death of his father, Florenci perceived that his own circumstances weren’t absolute and could be threatened.

“If you know how to survive on your own, you wouldn’t collapse from hunger, right?”

“Eh, yes, that’s true.”

Florenci nods with a smile.

“Besides, I realized that I could become someone who can help others who are in trouble.”

“Ren….!”

That young Florenci had thought this far.

Unintentionally, I gave him a tight hug.

“What you’re saying is correct, acquiring the ability to live is very important.”

When I proposed that we cook together, Florenci responded energetically.
