I was summoned by Decker-chan and Mr. Gankoji.

Inside the cave, they were making a wine cellar.

“How do you make wine?”

“We make wine by stomping grapes with our feet!”

“Stomping. . . . . .?”

I decided to actually see the process for myself.

Just a little way out of the cave, there was a large wooden vat.

『Grapes.』『So many grapes!』『Grape juice?』

The little monsters (meaning the children of monsters), peered into the wooden vat and spoke.

Mr. Gankoji shook his head as he explained.

“We put grapes for wine in here and crush them with our feet. Ah. . . . . .if you leave it for a while, it turns into wine.”

『『『Wow! Awesome!』』』

There are probably more various steps involved, but in order to make it easy for children to understand, they intentionally omitted some explanations.

“Hey Decker-chan, Mr. Gankoji is really a kind person, isn’t he?”

He explains it gently, breaking it down so even children can understand.

Then Decker-chan’s expression brightened and she nodded several times.

“Exactly! Gankoji is such a wonderful and kind boyfriend~♡.”

Thump, thump, thump! Decker-chan keeps tapping my shoulder.

It’s not painful, but my body. . . . . .ugh. . . . . .is sinking. . . . . .

『Big Sister is getting buried! Escape!』

Kumakichi-kun pulls me up from the ground.

“Thank you. But. . . . . .stomping grapes, huh. . . . . .Sounds fun.”

I’m kind of interested.

“Let’s stomp together!”

So, I decided to experience grape-stomping with Decker-chan.

We removed our shoes and socks and washed our feet in the river.

Decker-chan lent me work clothes so as not to stain my own with grape juice.

『I’ll tie Big Sister’s hair up!』

『No, Guu-chan will do it!』

『Leave it to Sura!』

The little monsters are arguing.

In the meantime, Decker-chan tied my hair up.

『『『Ah!』』』

“Thank you, Decker-chan.”

Fufu, there aren’t many girls my age around.

So. . . . . .Decker-chan is like a normal friend, and that makes me happy.

“You’re welcome! Now, Kyrie-sama!”

“Just Kyrie is fine.”

“O, Okay. . . . . .”

Hmm, but she’s still being formal.

Unfortunately.

We step into the vat and begin stomping on the grapes.

It’s kind of fun to squish the grapes.

“Haha, ah, grapes are getting between my toes, it’s ticklish.”

“Join in! Join in! Kyrie-sama, you too!”

Together, we continue to stomp the grapes.

『That looks fun~. I want to stomp too. Why can’t I?』

“Kumakichi, you’re all furry. You’d just dye your fur grape color.”

『Oh, I see. . . . . .that’s a problem.』

Eventually, we step out.

『I’ll lick Big Sister’s feet clean!』『No, Guu-chan’s licking is the best!』『Leave it to Sura!』

Now they’re arguing about who will clean my dirty feet.

That’s not necessary. . . . . .

I borrowed a cloth from Mr. Gankoji and wiped my feet myself.

『『『Ah!』』』

“Sorry, but having a friend wipe my feet is a bit much.”

『『『Then it can’t be helped.』』』

It seems like they have understood, my dear monster friends. Sigh. . . . . .

I’m not noble, and I don’t really like having others do things for me.

Besides, friends are equals. Whether it’s the monsters or the demi-humans, we’re all comrades, so having them do something for me. . . . . .it feels kind of uncomfortable, mentally.

Well, let’s set that aside.

“So, when will this grape wine be ready?”

“It takes a fair bit of time for fermentation. Hey, bear cub, help me put these ingredients into the barrel.”

Kumakichi-kun nods and puts his hands on the bucket.

That’s when he sniffed the air.

『Hey, Gankoji. I smell alcohol here.』

“No, no, it hasn’t fermented yet. There’s no way it could smell like alcohol.”

『No, seriously, come and check it out.』

What could it be?

We get closer to the bucket. . . . . .

And sure enough, there was a rich scent of alcohol mixed with the grapes.

“! W, What is this. . . . . .!!!”

Mr. Gankoji takes a sip.

“Uh, .”

“Uh?”

“Deliciousssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss! It’s wine!”

Mr. Gankoji screams.

Then he scoops it up and gulps down the wine (tentative).

“How delicious! I’ve never had such good wine in my life!”

“Is it because of the good grapes?”

“No, this is beyond the level of just good grapes.”

Then what could it be. . . . . .

『It’s here.』

And Kumakichi-kun says with a smug face.

『It’s Big Sister’s. . . . . .essence!』

“E, Essence. . . . . .?!”

What?!

『Remember, when we were at the hot springs, Big Sister Kyrie’s essence had some super healthy ingredients?』

N, Now that you mention it. . . . . .

Back in Mr. Gankoji’s hometown, Kai・Pagos, I had taken a dip in the hot springs.

And at that time, the hot spring seemed to power up significantly.

It appears that my special magical power had seeped into the liquid.

『It’s goddess wine!』

『Goooddess wiiine.』

Goddess wine. . . . . .what an unpleasant name. . . . . .

“We can sell this as Goddess Wine! The nobles will pay a fortune for it!”

If the craftsman says so, it must be true. . . . . .

But I have no intention of selling it.

“Let’s serve it at the feast then.”

“Are you sure? This is a fantastic wine worth its weight in gold coins.”

“I’m not interested in making money. As long as everyone finds it delicious, that’s good enough for me.”

Mr. Gankoji then nods, looking both amazed and somewhat impressed.

“You really have a beautiful heart, Miss Kyrie.”

“Do I?”

Yep yep! Decker-chan and the others nod.

I felt a little embarrassed and scratched my cheek.
