Every servant passing by and greeting him had a red flower attached to their left chest.


It looked like a brooch made of soft lace fabric, and as if it was quite precious, the servants often stroked the flower and smiled.


Today, he couldn’t see his niece, and the attendants were grinning as if they were warmed.


Everyone seemed to know the reason, yet he was the only one who didn’t, so it was only natural that his nerves were scratched.


It was then.


Aika was running from the end of the hallway with small, noisy footsteps.


With something red in her hands.


Her dark hair tied in pigtails fluttered whenever the child stamped her foot.


Of course it was like that.


Kassel pressed down on his temple, pretending to be troubled.


“Hello, Uncle! Did you get home safely?”


“I told you to stay calm.”


“I’m bust! Hello, Gerard.
Gerard, this!”


Aika, who was greeting them, passed Kassel and stood tall in front of Gerard.


She took a deep breath and abruptly held out the red flower she was holding in her arms to Gerard.


It was a flower made of lace that was found on the servants’ chest as they passed by.


The reason was here.


Flowers soon bloomed on Gerard’s face as well.


“Good day, Miss.
Are you giving it to me?”


“Yes, it’s a present! You can put it here.
I even prayed to the flowers for Gerard’s good luck!”


Aika proudly said, patting one side of her chest.


“Thank you.
I will cherish it.”


Aika’s face brightened as Gerard bent his knee to greet her in a gesture of loyalty.


Eventually, Aika looked up at Kassel.

If you’re going to give it, give it quickly and go.
Look at it again.


Thinking that he would be less whiny if he roughly received it and pretended to put it on, Kassel held out his hand.


Then Aika was startled and took a step behind.


“Uncle, I’m sorry! I won’t disturb you anymore!”


Then she turned around and disappeared like a bolt.


Kassel’s eyebrows rose crookedly, without knowing that they were high in the sky.


At most, his outstretched hand was empty.


What’s wrong with me?


Kassel quickly turned around.


It was Gerard, who was nervous about the atmosphere that had suddenly turned bad.


Kassel’s lips twitched.


“You like it so much?”


Gerard lowered his head at the disapproving voice.


“…Yes, I really likeㅡno.”


At the same time as his honest answer, the surrounding temperature dropped by about 3 degrees.


Do it a lot.”


Kassel quickly disappeared on his way back.



Actually, Zenda told him to make His Grace feel better today, but it was a big problem.


Sensing a bleak future ahead, Gerard scratched the back of his head roughly and hurriedly followed him.


After that, the number of servants with red flowers hanging from their chests increased before Kassel’s eyes.


By evening, however, Kassel’s chest was empty.


After the evening passed quite a while.


Aika, who met him at dinner after making the problem, was so innocent as if she didn’t know anything.


His expectations, which was only a handful left, were shattered terribly.




“Whoa, what is this?”


As soon as I entered the dining room, I noticed a tree towering in the middle of the table.


The fries were like winter trees stuck together like snowflakes.


“It’s a fried food with root vegetables attached.
In return for the flower brooch the Miss gave me.
Would you like to try it?”


Grandma Sophie, the chef, snapped one of the eggplants and held it out to me.


“Can I really eat it? If I add fruit to this, I think it will look like a Christmas tree!”


I put the fried root vegetables Grandma Sophie had handed me to my mouth.


Crispy on the outside, crunchy on the inside.


The outside was savory and salty like sprinkled salt, yet the inside was warm and sweet.


It was an exciting taste that made my nostrils enlarge.


“It’s delicious!”


How can it be so delicious even though it’s not meat!


“Next time, shall we use fruits and leafy vegetables to make a tree?”




“Anyway, it’s noisy.
Sophie, don’t get involved with her.”


Meanwhile, Uncle entered the dining room.
