Chapter 20: The hunters are on the offensive to catch their prey once again!
X X X
I bought a bunch of ingredients for takoyaki, okonomiyaki and yakisoba at the big market in the capital before heading over to the Medici’s house.
It was a bit floury, but the theme of this dinner party was to let people enjoy my favorite Japanese food.
Since that party, I went to the Medici’s house several times to have meetings with the cooks.
As a result, the Medici cooks decided to make the okonomiyaki and yakisoba, and I decided to make the takoyaki.
This aside, when the cooks saw the soy sauce I had summoned, they tasted it with curiosity and asked me what it was made of.
Soy sauce was an essential ingredient for Japanese people, but for people from other worlds, it probably looked like a strange black liquid that they had never seen before.
By the way, when I went to the Medici house, those three beautiful ladies were not there.
The servants told me that Agnes-san was busy with her business and Alice and Carol had limited time to play because of their studies and classes.
In other words, that beautiful mother and daughters gave up their precious time for me.
I was really grateful for that alone.
Anyway, I was going to make a lot of takoyaki today, so I was standing at the Medici house in my work clothes with a set of food stalls.
“Here you go.”
The gatekeeper opened the gate for me.
I still couldn’t get used to the feeling of being able to come and go freely in such a big and elegant mansion.
As I continued on my way, which was unnerving, I came to a fountain.
There, many servants have set up simple tables and chairs, and in the middle were three people dressed in differently colored, easy to move dresses.
The beauty of the red eyes then rushed to me at a great speed.
Carol dived into my body and hugged me around the waist and rubbed her face against my stomach
“Dear brother, dear brother, dear brother, my dear brother…” [｡◕‿◕｡]
“Haha, long time no see.”
“We’ve been waiting for you…”
Carol quickly lifted her head and looked up at me, and to be honest, she was undeniably cute.
“Haruto-onii-sama, you can’t turn your eyes away from me today.”
“My brother’s eyes and face… are so fascinating that I want to keep looking at them.”
Oof… Carol’s b*****s were hitting my stomach… Why were they so soft? ……And the way she was looking at me…
While I was puzzled, Alice sprinted over to me.
Huh… Did she come over to save me from Carol? This composition was kind of bad, so that helped.
But instead of saving me, Alice took my hand to her b*****s.
… Something about the two of them seemed a little different than the last time I saw them.
It’s like they were more aggressive…
I couldn’t help but return the honorific.
“You’re here again.”
“Thank you, Haruto.
I’m so happy.
My heart was restless, it’s still pounding so much, can you feel it?”
Carol was still glued to me, and my hands were still on Alice’s big marshmallows… and I absolutely must not put any pressure on my hands.
I mean, did you really want to do this to me when there were dozens of maids here?
So I looked around and saw that the maids were…
Why were they grinning like that?
She’s a duke’s daughter, you know?
The Dukedom of Leinster was the highest title other than the royalty, right?
While I was confused, Agnes-san wrapped her arms around my shoulders from behind and whispered in my ear.
“If you’d stayed here all the time, you wouldn’t have had to bring in so much weight… I’m sorry you had to go through all that trouble.”
“No! I’m not the least bit troubled.”
“It’s preposterous to bother you.
I have already prepared a room for you, Haruto-sama.
I hope you don’t have any plans for tomorrow.”
“Ah, you don’t have to… and I don’t have anything particular to do tomorrow.”
“Oh, is that so?”
I might imagine a lot of strange things if you three stay so close to me, so could you please move away from me for a bit…
I was about to get drunk on the scent of the three of them.
“I’m really looking forward to today… fufu!”
It’s gonna be a fun night.”
“Dear Brother… Carol has been waiting for this day… for a long time.”
The beautiful mother and daughter quickly moved away from me after saying that.
”Everyone! Let’s enjoy the food Harutou-sama is making today as much as we can!”
Agnes-san said loudly to the servants around her.
Then about sixty or seventy maids replied cheerfully.
X X X
“What is this? It’s round and cute and super tasty! It’s crispy on the outside and juicy… hot on the inside!”
“This thick pie is also delicious… sweet and tasty to the best.”
“And the noodle soup’s good, too! Mmm! It’s flavour is so addictive…”
The maids were happily chatting while eating takoyaki, okonomiyaki and yakisoba.
I was making takoyaki at a very high speed with my nerves on edge.
The cooks who were making okonomiyaki and yakisoba next to me were looking at the finished dishes with pride, and chatting with each other as they worked.
The fact that Japanese delicacies can be found in this other world uplifted my spirits.
The maids who incessantly demanded a refill.
And the fighting spirit of the chef who took on the challenge of cooking a dish she’s never made before.
There was a long line around the octopus grill and the griddle.
And I handled the maids and servants as I would handle a customer.
I noticed that there were quite a few maids around me with churning stomachs and contentedly rubbing their bellies.
As I was breathing a sigh of joy and relief at the sight, the beautiful sisters came over.
Can you make me more Takoyaki?”
“I love okonomiyaki!”
“I’ll be right with you.”
And I put a few takoyaki on a plate and put sauce on it, and at the end of it, I put some green onion and dried bonito flakes, and okonomiyaki was being made by the cook next to me.
When I eventually handed them the dishes, Alice and Carol nodded in satisfaction with the corners of their mouths slightly lifted.
Then Carol returned to the table with Agnes-san, humming a tune.
But Alice stayed there staring at me, unable to move her legs.
”I didn’t know there was such good food in Haruto’s country.”
“Oh, yeah… there are many others, but these three are my favorite.”
“It’s so nice.
They’re all delicious, but I love the tako-aki.”
“It’s a takoyaki, though…”
“My bad, don’t mind it.”
I said to myself in a self-mocking way and turned the takoyaki with a takoyaki pick in a small motion.
I had made quite a lot of takoyaki, so no one came to ask for more, and now Alice and I were facing each other across the takoyaki pan.
I moved the deliciously cooked takoyaki to another spot and then wiped the sweat off my face with my arm.
Alice was staring at me again.
“I’d like to know more about Haruto’s country.”
It’s a long way, isn’t it?”
“You don’t have to tell me if you don’t want to… I know you had a hard time in the past.”
I still love my country.”
“Is that so?”
Japan… was a country with many memories and many experiences.
“It’s a peaceful country.
There are no nobles or commoners or classes like here.”
“Oh, really? I’ve never… heard of a country where caste and class doesn’t exist.”
“It’s quite far from here…”
“I’d love to go there sometime if I get the chance.”
“Yeah… Alice would definitely get picked on a lot if she walked around town…”
“No-no… it’s nothing.
If I ever get a chance, maybe we could go together.”
“Together with you… will you… protect me?”
I’m worried about you being alone Alice, so I’ll protect you.”
Alice suddenly shivered and dropped the takoyaki in her hand.
“Alice? Are you alright?”
The Takoyaki you made for me is…”
“Don’t worry about it.
More importantly, is your body alright?”
I quickly moved towards Alice and checked her body.
She was wearing a high quality dress that’s easy to move in.
She turned her dazed glaze on me.
I’ve always been overwhelmed by her eyes and her gaze.
But this time, deep within those beautiful blue eyes…
It seemed to be inhabited by weakness.
“Why don’t you find out what this nobleman’s daughter wants from you and give it to her?”
The words of the bulky adventurer came back to me.
I didn’t know why I remembered it now.
I bit my lip in frustration, and Alice opened her mouth.
“Tako-aki… can you make it for me again?”
X X X
With the help of the maids, the cleanup was over in no time.
Just a few minutes ago, many people were enjoying the delicious Japanese food, but when I looked around the fountain, which had become quiet like this, I felt a bit empty.
I exhaled that was neither a sigh nor a mere breath, and suddenly, I felt like I was floating in the air.
Agnes-san in her beautiful dress turned to look at me again.
“The food today was very delicious.
As expected, Haruto-sama’s cooking is amazing.”
“I’m glad that you liked it.”
”If you open a proper shop in Royal Capital, it’s sure to be very prosperous.
I’d like to have a long talk with you later.”
My spine shivered with her voice… and she smelled so good…
“Is something wrong?”
“Yes, no… nothing.”
*Slurp*“… It tastes like there’s something in your mind!”
”Well, Haruto-sama worked hard for us and the servants, so it’s only natural that you’re tired.
No matter how fine and masculine your body is, you still need to rest.”
Sure, I was a little tired.
I’ve been spending a lot of time preparing for this dinner party.
“So please stay the night over.”
I suddenly felt very tired.
As Agnes-san kept staring in my eyes.
“It’s already late at night, and this place has a large bath and the best beds.
I’m sure Haruto-sama will feel refreshed.”
And so I decided to accept Agnes-san’s offer…
Well then, I’ll take … your word for it.”
“Hmm… good choice.”
Agnes-san said that with a meaningful expression on her face and then suddenly turned around towards where the mansion was behind her.
“Alice! Carol! Haruto-sama is staying here today, so please be careful~”
The two sisters who heard Agnes-san’s voice emerged from the fountain and ran towards us.
“Brother… are you really staying here?”
“Yeah, I’ll try not to be a nuisance.”
“You’re welcome to bother us anytime! Uhehe… *drool*.”
“Carol… it is unbecoming of the second daughter of the Medici family to drool in front of the guest.”
“Ah, I’m sorry! Mama… and brother too…”
Carol apologized to me and Agnes-san with a bow.
“No, no, don’t worry about it.
She was rather cute, like a little sister.”
“Oh dear… Haruto-sama, you’re still very kind.
Unlike the other nobles, fufu.”
Carol gave me another inhaling look.
She was breathing hard, and her expression was desperately trying to hold something back…
I was about to say what was wrong, when Alice suddenly put her hand on my chest.
“Haruto… I’m glad you came…”
I felt like drowning in those eyes as she gazed at me.
Then Agnes-san, who had come around behind me, called out to me.
“Haruto-sama, please consider this your home.”
That’s pretty aggressive.
