When Meira-san and Louiselia-san made that plan, they hurriedly fled before we could decline, saying they had some things to do.

Kalua-san also left after that, as if following after them.

Somehow, her actions at that time bothered me a little.

She grumpily glared at 2 of her friends…nah, that’s not it.

Kalua-san looked like an expressionless person.

She stared at Meira-san and Louiselia-san with a frown.

At first glance I thought she was glaring at them, but when I thought again calmly later, it felt like she was bewildered.

…Are those two people Meira-san introduced as her friends, part of the organization?

I’m sure Meira-san is one of them.

I felt more or less the same aura from Louiselia-san.

But Kalua-san felt different.

(T/N: my bad, I kinda assumed Kalua is a he, did a double take and turned out Kalua is a she.
I fixed the previous chapter.
Her gender was not mentioned in previous chapter, ah languages are difficult.)


“Are you okay?”


Rattlua-san poured me a fresh cup of tea.


“Thank you.
Um~ Don’t you think that’s weird?”


I also think that’s weird.”


“I thought so too.
The organization I know is very careful and won’t leave any evidence.
But I didn’t get that image from Meira-san and Louiselia-san’s actions.
Did they realize that we’re suspecting them?”


“That may be the case.
However if they realize, I think they will act differently.
Or perhaps all of these are trap?”


Ah, I see.

It’s possible that all of these are trap.

…but what kind of trap would this be?

Anyway, it doesn’t make much sense getting all 3 of them suspicious.

There’s also the possibility that he’s just a friend, and trying to divert the suspicion from Meira-san.

Oh, we were talking about there is something in that shop called Mamaloco before.

Would they do it in broad daylight?


“What kind of shop is Mamaloco?”


“It’s a long-established dessert shop.
They have dango desserts.”


Dango…a lot of things came to mind, my previous soul’s knowledge, huh.

Eh, I don’t know its name, but there is also a thing that is covered in black powder.

What is it called again, ‘anko?’

What a unique appearance.


“Something wrong? You’re frowning real hard.”


“Eh, no.
It’s nothing.”


That was close, they are going to wonder about me having knowledge from my previous soul.

I have to be careful.



“What kind of shops are ‘Floflo’ and ‘Amarocal’?”


“Those 2 shops are run by my colleagues and former adventurers.
Floflo sells soft desserts like milpa, but fluffier.
Amarocal sells crunchy snacks.”


What an abstract description.

Fluffy dessert like milpa? And crunchy snacks?

I’m trying so hard to suppress all those things that come up in my mind.

Alright, calm down.


“I’m looking forward to tomorrow.”


“Me too, I’m gonna indulge after a long time.”


I remember Rattlua-san said he doesn’t really drink alcohol.

Instead, he’s a sucker for sweet things?

Rattlua-san has a somewhat cute personality, huh.


I hang out my forgotten laundry, and started to prepare dinner.

Somehow there are more food than yesterday.

I’m not sure who bought this much foo…nah, it must be Nouga-san.

There are magic items that can keep food fresh.

There are also large chunks of meat.

I noted that there are 6 different kinds of meat chunks.

I guess they want to eat meat…

And then the other one…I guss Cival-san?

A lot of nice stuffs you put in soup also squeezed in.

Saizerg-san also provided me with seasonings, so I will do my best making dinner.


“Sorry, Ivy.
Somehow we brought so much food.”


Rattlua-san looked a little shocked when he saw the food mountain.


“It’s okay.
I love cooking.”


I’m fired up when I remember everyone’s smiles when they eat.


First, I scored the meat and let it absorb the seasoning…

After that, I’m doing the soup.

Aha, Borolda-san brought some milk he received.

He said I can use it as I want, so let’s make milk soup.

Because we have eat with strong umami here, let’s stew it with the milk.


When I was about to grill the meat, Nouga-san came back.

…is he able so sense when I was about to cook?


“Welcome home.
Thank you for the meat.”


“No problem, you cooked it?”





I made sweet sauce and marinated the meat.

What’s wrong…he’s staring at the meat.

Uh, did I make a mistake grilling the meat? Should I do it other way?

When I moved the meat softly, I heard Nouga-san’s stomach growling loudly.


Ah, I guess I should prepare the plates.”


Nouga-san blushed a little and went away.

Is he waiting for dinner to finish?

If yes, I’m so glad.


“I’m back.
Looks like I came back at the right time.
Good work, Ivy.”


“My pleasure, thank you for the veggies.”


Cival-san, Loucreek-san, and Maarleek-san are back.

I can see Seizerg-san, Borolda-san and Rattlua-san talking over there.

I wonder if they are talking about Meira-san and her friends.


“What do you mean by the veggies?”


“Huh? …that, the veggies I cooked for our dinner…huh?”


Cival-san looked at the food mountain confusedly.

Perhaps I shouldn’t have cooked that?


“Ah, I brought those!”


Rickbelt-san suddenly shouted.

I was startled.

When did he come back? I didn’t realize at all.


“Thank you, Rickbelt-san.”


“No worries…then…”


“That’s right, there’s no need to worry about it at all.”


Maarleek-san looked at Rickbelt-san with a shocked look on his face.

So was Cival-san, and also Nouga-san who just came back.

Um…what is going on here?


“Ivy, Rickbelt want to use this as a bribe for permission to see Sora.”


Looks like this is the truth, because Rickbelt-san diverted his gaze elsewhere.


“Sora…Cival-san please help.”




“Ugh, wait a minute Ivy, that’s not true!”


“I will let you see Sora as a thanks for the veggies.
Cival-san is going with us.”


“Leave it to me, Ivy.
Rickbelt, let’s go!”


Rickbelt-san looked so shocked.

I do feel bad for him, but I’m doing this for Sora!

After all, he won’t stop until Sora is really angry.

I won’t allow it.


Everyone gathered and we started our dinner.

We usually chatted while we eat, but halfway, everyone is so focused on eating.

I’m glad my cooking suit their taste, but Nouga-san has grabbed quite an amount of meat without anyone noticing and they’re quarreling about it…they’re so serious it’s scary.

Borolda-san is a bit shocked when he found out how I use the milk.

People usually boil milk, right?

…huh? They are supposed to do so.

Dinner is over and we took a tea break.


“I planned to talk about a lot of things during dinner, but it was impossible after all.”


“I know right.
The marinated mat was so delicious.”


“Thank you.”


Saizerg-san and Maarleek-san’s compliments made me smile.


“Shall we talk now?”


We are a bit tense after Borolda-san started talking.


“I heard from Rattlua.
Meira and the others came, who was it again…Louiselia and Kalua was it?”


“I remember clearly that those 2 were from different adventurer teams.
I didn’t have the impression that they have good relationship.”


“I can’t get the reason why they came here today.”


“It’s too lame to be a trap.”


We are indeed in trouble, everyone’s having different opinion.

Those 3 people’s actions are suspicious after all.


“We can’t reach any conclusion, huh.
Anybody has any other opinion?”


For the time being, we will put the problem about Meira-san’s action on hold.


“Tort and Marma are going to train in the forest tomorrow, I will check them out.”


Maarleek-san and Loucreek-san.

Saizerg-san will join the investigation as well, it seems.

Cival-san and Nouga-san was trailing the merchant’s action today.

Looks like they will investigate the persons in direct contact with us tomorrow.

After we discussed it, I and Rattlua-san decided to go along with the 3 people group.

Rattlua-san will investigate.

They said I can do my stuff as usual, but I’m already nervous.
