We went to the backyard and entered the house through the backyard door.

Immediately, the smell of Dad’s cooking welcomed us back.

「I’m back~!」(Mark)

「Papa, Mama, I’m back~」(Nicola)

「Welcome back!」(Mom)

Mom immediately replied to us, but she and Dad were busy cooking.

When Nicola and I entered the kitchen, Mom approached us with a frying pan in one hand, while Dad was busy preparing a large pot of soup.

How was your trip? Was it fun?」(Mom)

For some reason, Mom lowered her eyebrows and tilted her head as she asked such a question.

At first, I thought it would be better to keep silent about the encounter with the bandits because I didn’t want to make Mom and Dad worried, but when I thought about it carefully, Gauche oji-san will come tomorrow and tell them anyway, so I decided to tell them now, but I made it sounded like it wasn’t a big deal.

After I told them, Mom let out a sigh and turned off the stove.

And then, she approached me and hugged me gently.

「I see… So that’s why you are making such a face… It’s okay, Mark.
You protected everyone.
You did great! That’s whyー」(Mom)


Suddenly, Mom slapped my back.

「ーbe proud of yourself!」(Mom)

While still being hugged by Mom, I saw Nicola grinning at me.

Looks like I don’t realize that I’ve been making a pitiful face.

Well, I said I don’t care about those bandits, it’s true, but you know? I’ve never had a fist fight with someone in my previous life.
So honestly, injuring three people is still a little too much for me even though they are bad people.

Dad also approached me and stroked my head roughly.

Uhh… It’s getting embarrassing now…
So let’s change the subject!

「By the way, I bring gifts from the village! I want Dad to see them, but…」(Mark)

「Gifts~? I wonder if you bring me gifts too~」(Celine)

Suddenly, Celine came into the kitchen without permission.

Oi… Yes you’re close with us, but you’re still a customer, you know?

But, nice timing!
I also want to hear what she thinks about Tentacles meat.
She will be a customer who will eat it in the future after all.

「I bought monster meat in Secard Village.
The monsters are called Tentacles.
People there really like eating their meat, but because it looks a bit disgusー I mean, not really good… people from other areas don’t like it.
But it’s really delicious! So I want you all to taste it.
Of course, Celine too.」(Mark)

「Ohh~ I’ll gladly taste it for you then~」(Celine)

Celine looked excited about it.

Because Tentacles are big, first, I put things away from the kitchen table to create some space.

「Alright, I’ll take it out.」(Mark)

And then, I took out the Tentacle meat from my item box on the kitchen table.



An unknown scream was heard in the kitchen.
