35-Episode 33 Working

'What the hell are you doing here?

Delia, her first words to her guest.

'Delia, come here.'

I'll beckon him over as soon as I can.
It's an emergency meeting.

'How did it go, Yashiro?
'Nothing much. I would have been very rude if it wasn't for Umaro, you know?'
'Um, Mr. Yashiro. It's not that I'm rude enough, it's that you're the rudest person I've ever met.

As usual, Umaro came in with a stupid look on his face and said something I don't understand, but I can ignore him.

It's been three days since Delia started her temporary job at the Sunlit Pavilion.
When she told Jeannette about it, she immediately agreed, saying, 'I can't pay you much, but if you're still interested, I'd love to. The majority of Delia's salary was to be paid in meals.
Delia is not the type of person who spends a lot of money and does not seem to want much, so she does not seem to care about cash income.
The only time she spends money is when she eats sweets. That seems to be his life.

'Manager, how would you rate my customer service on a scale of one to one?
'Yes, sir. One hundred.'

That's not fair!

Ginette seemed to like Delia very much and kept smiling at her.
She didn't have any bad feelings towards her to begin with, and now that she's offered to help, her favorability level seems to have skyrocketed.

'But, Miss Delia. I think you'll do much better if you can treat your customers in such a way that they'll be glad they came.
''Glad I came''. I get it!I'll try it!

If you have something to improve on, you're not getting a perfect score, Jeannette.
I'd give Delia a two on my scale. Thirty for good looks and style. Twenty points for energy. Minus ten for too much energy, minus twenty for bad language, minus ten for clumsy manners, minus eight for being intimidating to customers.

'Hey, fox!
'Oh, you're me?
'Aren't you glad I came?
'Oh, ...... no, ...... that .......'
'Aren't you glad you came?Hey!
'Yes, I am!I'm glad.
'What do you think, manager?
'It's not quite the same as ......, but it's okay.

'Not good, Jeannette!

'Yashiro-san...... Magda-tan's replacement is that person...... how did this happen?'

The teary-eyed Umaro let out a lament that only I could hear.
Ever since Magda got injured, this guy has been coming by every day with gifts for her. He's desperate to feed us.
Well, I've already told him that I don't want anyone else to see Magda, who is wearing a very tight shirt.
When he sees something that looks good, his tail stands up and his ass is exposed. It's too dangerous to be seen in public.

Lately, Estella seems to be busy and leaves immediately after having breakfast at the church.
As for Regina, ......
'I can't ...... stand a place with so many people coming and going.
I'm not sure what to make of this, but I'm sure it's a good idea. ...... He is a man who has become a loner to no end.

That's why we're surprisingly short on staff.
I thought it was just a lack of Magda. ......
Ginette has to do all the housework by herself, including serving customers, cooking, taking care of Magda, cleaning and laundry. She couldn't even handle making popcorn, which Magda was in charge of.
The only thing I could help with was serving customers and taking care of Magda, and even that was not as efficient as Ginette's.

In other words, Ginette's workload was becoming very heavy.

Delia's offer may have been a blessing in disguise.
Although this is a wild statement, having a beautiful woman in the restaurant makes it more glamorous. This is how a sunlit pavilion should be.

'Excuse me!Are you ready to order?
'Not now!
'No, go ask her right now!
'I do?
'That's your job, isn't it?
'I'm a fisherman, remember?
'I'm a waitress now!
'Oh, you're a waitress. ............ Hehe, that's embarrassing.

I don't know what to be embarrassed about, but ...... I'll have to educate you on the basics, regardless of how good you look.

'All right, tell me what you want!I'll listen.
I'll take your order.''...... Oh, well, I'll have the ...... stir-fried vegetable set meal.
'I'll have the sauteed chicken.
'Daily special.'
'I'll have the daily special.'

'Yeah yeah ............ you guys,eat fish'
''''...... what? ''''
'Manager, four grilled salmon set meals!
'''' No, no, no, no! ''''
'What's that?Salmon is good, right?Hey, Yashiro?'
'I'll admit it's good, but make sure you listen to your customers' orders.'
'I can't help it. ...... This is the only time, okay?

No, ask him every time.

It's Umaro's carpenters who are confused by Delia's outrageous customer service. So, yeah, Delia's style of customer service is barely safe, but it's not good enough for regular customers. ......

'We should hurry up and educate ourselves in case we get customers other than Torbek's people. ......'
'Hey, we're really good customers, aren't we?I'd like you to take good care of us.
'I'm taking good care of you. Don't you want to hear today's Magda information?
'I want to hear it!
'I recommend the grilled salmon set meal.
'Well, I'm fine with that!I want to know!
'Today Magda is wearing a pale blue shirt. It buttons up in the front and is about this length.
'Muhaa ............ pretty ......!

Umaro, who was in the terminal stage of his illness, was now able to moan even at Magda in his imagination.

I'm not sure what to say.

Suddenly, Delia's scream was heard. ............ Scream, was it?

'............ cold'.

I don't know how she did it, but Delia was soaking wet all over. I'm not sure what I did, but I'm pretty sure I tipped the jug over my head. '...... You've been juggling.

'You guys got me all wet!
'''' No, no, no, no!I'm not sure what to do. I'm sure you'll be able to figure out what's going on. ''''

...... Did you do that?

'Oh shit, ...... my clothes are soaking wet. ...... I have to take them off and dry them.'
'Stop it!

If we take them off here,............ there will be deaths.

'Yes, that's true,......, and Yashiro is there,.......'
'Even if he's not here, don't take it off in public.
'Haha ......Yashiro is surprisingly possessive ......'.

I'm not sure what you're talking about. ...... I don't know what you're talking about, and I'm not going to make any effort to understand you.

'Oh my God!Ms. Delia, you need to change your clothes right now: ......!
'But, I don't have any other clothes on me, do I?
'I'll lend you my uniform!
'Do you want to come in?'

Delia stood next to Jeannette and moved her palm up and down from the top of her head to the top of Jeannette's head. Delia is taller than me, and Jeannette is shorter than me.
I'm not sure if I can fit in ............. I look at them and compare.

I'm not sure.

I'm sure it'll fit.
'...... Yashiro-san.

'Delia can even take on Jeannette!

'Then I'll borrow it.'
'Yes. This way, please.'

Ginette disappears behind the counter with Delia.

'Oh, ...... all the beautiful women are gone ......'.

The only ones left in the store are me and a bunch of guys looking for beautiful women.
Very disgusting.

I mean, there are no female customers in this diner, except for old Mum, Ginette's tea drinking friend. Every time Bertina comes to the restaurant, she shows her "parental authority of Ginette's upbringing" and never leaves money behind. ...... Or she only comes to the restaurant when she can eat for free.
Estella sometimes even pays for it. ......

I'm sure you'll be pleased to know that there are no female customers at all, even though you've prepared honey popcorn, a sweet treat that is sure to be popular with women!...... This is a serious situation. Improvement is urgent.

After that, a time like a wake came.
No one said a word, and the only sound in the quiet dining room was the clattering of dishes.
...... Do they like beautiful girls that much? ...... No, well, it's not like they're going to look at me and say, 'Oooohhh! I don't like it.

However, even these people are customers. If there's no one else, I'll have to serve them.
I'll get the water refill Delia was going to get for her.
I walked over to the carpenters seated at a table for four, carrying a pitcher of water.

'Hey. You want some water?'


--chin......copocopo............ ton.

'............ Us'.

What the heck is this space!

It's a gymnastics club room!
The first year and alumni who don't interact!

'Ah, um~......Yashiro-san. What's wrong with this water?

Umaro asks me in a way that makes it clear he's concerned.
He's trying to manage the heavy atmosphere. Nice try.
Okay, I'll join you.

'Wow~ I shouldn't have ...... talked to you...'
'Just kidding. Wasn't that a little cute?'
'...... Unfortunately, not even a little ............'

I guess we have different sensibilities.
Oh, I see. Umaro is a believer in vines.

'I'm vine too!
'What are you angry about?I don't understand!

Well, okay. I don't want to be liked by Umaro, not even a little.

'This water is from the well.
'But isn't it muddy from the last rain?

There is a well in the courtyard of the sunny pavilion that boasts a plentiful supply of water.
As Umaro said, due to the long rain until the other day, the rain got into the well and made it a little muddy. ............ No, to be honest, it's muddy enough that I hesitate to drink it straight. I'm sure the situation is the same in every ward. Umaro and his friends are looking at the clean water with curious faces.

'It takes a lot of water to store in a cafeteria, doesn't it?

With more than a dozen customers arriving every day, we started offering free water at the Sunda-mari-tei.
Until now, ......, or rather, no water was served in the restaurants of this world. If you are thirsty, buy a drink,' is the system.
When we first started this system, most of the customers refused to drink, saying that they had not asked for it, but when they learned that it was free, they began to drink it without hesitation. I guess it was generally well received.

'Is there any secret trick to get clean water?

Umaro looked at me curiously, but ...... I have no obligation to give a detailed explanation of what others want to know.
In fact, it's very simple, we're just filtering the muddy water from the well.
The impurities contained in the well water are removed through a simple filtration system using stones and gravel. Even so, there is still some concern, so the water is boiled and disinfected. Finally, a squeeze of lemon gives the water a refreshing taste.
Hygiene is the most important thing for restaurants to take care of.

However, I am not going to tell you that honestly.
So, I answer again as follows.

'''' ohhhhh!

What the hell?
I was just trying to get a glimpse of Umaro's twitching face, but it turned out to be a huge breakthrough!
I'm not sure if it's a good idea or not.
If that's the case, you're all banned!

But that was not the case.

The carpenters' eyes were fixed on the other side of the counter.
If you look over there,......

'Ya, Yashiro ......?

There was Delia.
She was wearing a Ginette uniform.

Brilliant, Delia.
And even more impressive is the fact that the ...... skirt is super mini ...... skirt hem, which was probably too small for the ginette clothes. Her thighs are exposed.
The apron dress is a dress underneath, so if there is a difference in body size, the length will be shorter. It's a natural result.

'You're amazing, Delia. Even though you have great muscles all over your body, you are very slim and tight everywhere. She can easily wear my clothes.'
'Oh, manager!Don't say too much about that, okay?
'But you look great, with your eight-pack abs!

You've got ripped abs?
That's awesome!I think I'll work on my abs too!

And ......?Isn't that weird?Isn't that weird, right?
'No, no, no. You look even better than I imagined you would. I'd like to hire you as a full-time employee.
'Oh, really?

Delia's expression softened a little when I praised her. Apparently, she was nervous.

'Okay!Let's get back to work!

Delia, now relaxed, tightened her expression and rolled up her arms.
...... You're a good maid, Delia, to be able to wear a neat maid's uniform so powerfully.
This is a great way to make sure you are getting the most out of your money. But .......
When Delia left the counter and went to a table for four, she was discovered.

Delia's skirt was up, revealing her curling tail and the black spats she wore underneath.


I blew out loud.
No, you're not the sister of the ...... national Sunday evening anime, so you can't ...... see your underwear through your skirt!

What's that, Yashiro ............?It's not the same!I'm not sure what to do.

You'll be able to find a lot more than just a few of them.
It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for and what you can do to help.

I'm sure you'll be pleased to know that I'm not the only one.
...... May there be no deaths, may there be no deaths, may there be no deaths.

'Um, Yashiro-san, ......'
'Oh. I'll make a uniform for Delia as soon as possible.''

Ginette spoke to me in a reserved manner. 'I know. I'm with you.
That's not good.
Just make it a little bigger than Jeannette's and we'll be fine.

'Oh, yeah, Yashiro.'

Delia, her fangs in place, calls me with a smile.

'When I told you I started working here, a friend of mine said he'd love to see it. I wonder if he'll be here today?
'You mean Delia's friends are from the river fishing guild?

I'm not sure what to make of that. ...... It's blatant, you guys.

I'm the guild leader of the Sea Fishing Guild.
'Seafaring guild?

I didn't think Delia had any connection to the Seafaring Guild.
Good. Hopefully we can get some contacts in the Seafaring Guild. After all, we need some sea fish too. I'll see what I can do to negotiate with them.

'Delia. Please introduce me. I'd like to get to know you.'
'Yeah, sure. But don't grin too much at me no matter how pretty she is. She's my friend!'

I see.
So the guild leader of the Sea Fishing Guild is a woman?
I'm looking forward to ............ the beautiful woman I'm about to grin at.

'Men like mermaids a lot. ...... I'm a little worried.


'What, you're a mermaid?
'See, I've been bitten. ...... Men are such a ...... bunch.'

The disgruntled Delia grumbles, but it can't be helped.
It's a mermaid!
A mermaid is a scallop with a naked upper body and breasts!
How could any man dislike that?

'You're a mermaid? I've never met her, but from what I've heard she's a very good singer. I'd like to meet her.

Ginette also looked happy.
Oh, so she sings.
If she sings in the cafeteria, it'll be a topic of conversation.
Yeah. Good.

'Masha's a good singer too. She's probably the best of the mermaids. It's soothing to listen to.'
'Is that so?That's amazing.

You're beautiful, you've got big boobs, and you can sing. ...... You're perfect!
I'm not sure if this is the type of thing that the heavens give two things to in this world?
I'm sure you'll be pleased to know that I'm not the only one who's had a bad experience. Delia, it's too late to tell.

--And just then...
The door to the sunlit pavilion slowly opened.

You're here!

It's not only me and Jeannette, but also Umaro and all the other guests, all eyes were on the entrance at once.

The mermaids are coming. ......!

'Hello, Yashiro. Ginette. How's Magda doing? ...... Ooh!What is it?I'm not sure what to do.

It was Estella who walked in.

'...... Estella'.
'Ya, Yashiro. What the hell happened to you?'
'I'm disappointed in you!
'What the hell!Just when people were finally getting their work done!
'As punishment, put a scallop shell on your chest.
''I don't get it!

It's the least I can do to make amends!
That won't go unpunished. I'll punish you if you don't do that!

'Today, we're going to have a special visitor here!It's a very important customer that the carpenters sitting around here can't even compete with.
'We're your customers!We want you to take good care of us!

Oh, sorry. I can't hear you.

'Important customers?Ginette, what are you talking about?
'Actually, there's a very nice mermaid at .......'

Just as Jeannette began to explain, a strange sound came from outside the dining room.

--chirin...... gee...... chirin...... gee... ...chirin......gee......

The sound of a bell and the sound of wheels creaking and turning. ......

'Oh, I think they're here.'

Delia's ears twitched as she looked towards the entrance.
Is this distinctive sound a signal that a mermaid has arrived?
Oh, I see. They can't walk here because they're mermaids.

That means she came on a cart or something with a tank of seawater or something like that.
That must be the reason for the squeaking of the wheels.

This means that ............

The sound of the wheels stopped in front of the store.

At last, you will meet the most beautiful woman in the world, the famous mermaid.
The expression is a bit exaggerated, but I'm sure it's not too far off.
She sings well, she is beautiful, and she is a mermaid and a scallop. How could she not be an exquisite beauty?

'...... gulp'

My throat throbs with anticipation.

The expectations of us, the men of the Sunlit Pavilion, are poured into the doorway.
Our gazes are so focused on that one point that we feel as if a hole will open.

Then, the door is quietly opened.

'.................. I'm sorry to disturb you. ...... What?'

All the people in the cafeteria were looking at him, and the person who appeared in the cafeteria had a surprised expression on his face.
His round eyes were dull, large, and round.
His scaly skin glistened smoothly, and his long, slender limbs were covered with wading pools.
The face of the fish, with its mouth gaping open, resembles a carp begging for food, and its gills are twitching in surprise.
The person, who gives the overall impression of being somewhat slimy, is, for all intents and purposes, ............

It's not a half mermaid!

She didn't look like a mermaid at all.
