Some time has passed.
Fortunately, we were blessed with good weather, and even though it was early in the morning, the sun was shining brightly and it was uncomfortably hot.
'It's always hot and humid in the 41st arrondissement, .......'
'The weather is not our fault!I mean, the weather is the same in every district!
I'd say don't make thunder in the sunshine. It makes it hotter.
'I understand that you two are close, so why don't you get to the point, guys?
The dumbfounded Estella says to neither of us.
We're standing in the plaza of District 41.
Estella and Ricardo are standing next to me, and a simple tent has been set up a short distance away. This is the waiting room that Umaro had made for this event.
And in front of us, there are about twenty women lined up.
'Is this the number of participants for now?
'Yes. The women who met the conditions you asked for ...... and the lords who offered their interest gathered together.
I'm not sure if it's a good thing or not, but it's a good thing.
They range in age from their teens to their forties, and they have different types of lovers.
Some are dissatisfied with their daily lives, some are not dissatisfied but not quite satisfied, and some have a vague idea that they want to change something but have no idea what to do about it.
It's a great way to get in touch with your friends and family. We're looking for women of all ages!
We put up an advertisement on the bulletin board in the 41st district and invited people who wanted to join.
Incidentally, a small festival was to be held in this square in the afternoon.
I plan to tell the story of the back alley reform to the people there. So, almost all the people will be there, including the women who are here now.
It is now eight in the morning. It's about four hours away. ...... I'd better hurry.
Thank you for gathering us. This is Obayashi, he's more important than the two lords behind him.'
'What are you talking about, ......?
We don't have time for this, so don't keep pestering me. It's a small thing.
'Thank you for participating in today's "Dramatic Before and After Remodeling of the 41st District - It's wonderful to have a city where women are beautiful" project. I'd like to thank you on behalf of the executive committee.
'...... I didn't know that was the title.'
'Why are you talking like a pharmacist from the 42nd district, last ......'.
I'm not sure what to say.
I'm not sure if it's a good idea, but it's a good idea.
You need to stand your ground.
'This time, I want everyone here to tell the other lords, "Change is great! I want to change! I want you to do your part to make other people think, 'Change is great!
--When I said that, all the women squeezed their bosoms.
...... It seems that rumors about me are spreading,............, Ricardo. There's a lot of mismanagement going on here. It's a liability issue, this.
I'm not going to take it off, but I'm going to dress it up.
I'm going to make this much easier to understand than it needs to be for the stupid people of a city ruled by a stupid lord. It's all because the lord is an idiot. ......
Then, for a little while, I gave a speech about how fun it is to dress up, how people can be changed by the tiniest things, and how colorful the world looks beyond that.
The women looked at me with some interest, but still with a sceptical look of disbelief.
...... It seems that the bad impression from the gluttony contest is still deeply rooted in this.
I think that there are many things that can not be conveyed by words alone. That's why today I want you to actually experience it, go through it, and feel it. And if you are satisfied with the results, please spread the word to your acquaintances and loved ones.
Fashion spreads by word of mouth.
That's the right way to go. --It's up to the person in charge to decide what will go viral, though. Isn't that what fashion is all about?
Paris: "This year's trendy colors are pale lavender and sylvestris.
Milan: 'The trendy patterns are polkadots and perfabole'.
Daikanyama: 'That's right.
It's fashionable for someone else to decide.
If the trends of BU are sent out from the information papers, the trends of the outer districts should be sent out from this new fashionable spot in the 41st district!
--Do as I say. Go to .............
'Don't think too hard. Just enjoy yourself today and get beautiful while you're at it.
The women around you begin to talk in private.
The confusion is leaking out in their voices.
'Since we're here, let's show the crowd how beautiful we've become.
The buzz grows louder.
The confusion eventually turns to anxiety, and the gathered women become restless.
They hadn't heard about going out in public.
Huh?I wonder if that's right? ...... Well, I didn't tell Ricardo about it, but he should have the capacity to read my thoughts a little bit and explain them to me, since he's the lord.
A woman cried out, "Oh, my God!
A woman raises her voice with a tearful face.
But when his eyes met mine, he looked away and became silent.
You don't have to be so scared. ......
'You can say what you're thinking. Let me hear them.'
In order to reassure the frightened woman, he put on a gentle voice with a fresh, handsome smile. ...... and the woman's face tenses for a moment.
What is it?Hmm?Are you trying to tell me that my smile is evil?What?I'm gonna eat your apple, bunny.Oh?
'Yashiro. Don't look so evil. I'm sorry about the ....... I hope you don't mind, but I'd like to hear your opinion.'
Estella's intervention put the woman at ease and she began to express her concerns.
'You know, ...... I don't think anything we do will make you beautiful.
Hearing such a statement, whispering, murmuring, and somewhat agreeing voices leaked out from here and there.
There's no way we can be beautiful. ...... It's probably our lack of confidence that makes us think such things.
But don't you think so in your heart?
If I could, I'd want to be beautiful.
'Don't worry. Everyone has their own charm.
Estella speaks in a frank tone, but the response is not good.
I'm not sure what to say, but I'm sure you'll understand. ...... I'm sure he's going to do something unnecessary.
'You, go put on some makeup and a dress.
I'm not sure what to say.Why should I?
It would be easier for you to understand if I actually showed you that you can become beautiful with makeup. What was it that Oba said?It's easier to understand if you see it or something.
You mean 'Seeing is believing'?
Yes, that's it!
I've told the two lords about my intention to plan such a presentation-like unveiling.
I told them that a picture is worth a thousand words,......, and that they could imitate only a part of what they had heard,.......
I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do it. I'm sure they'll agree with me. ............?What the hell are you frowning at me for?
Estella is frowning in a way she's never frowned before.
'What?You get wrinkles all over your face? She wrinkles up her face like that and moves away from Ricardo with a soot .......
You look like you've been chewed up by Hercules the Great. I don't know if there is one, but it's the Great Bitterness of Hercules.
'Bo ......, can you not look at me like that?
'Bah!I'm not looking at you!It's not that I'm not trying to be objective, but I'm just stating an objective fact. ...... Did you just eat a hundred lemons in one sitting?I'm not sure what to make of that.
Estella's hair is standing on end.
She didn't like it very much.
Ricardo was just embarrassed to see her blatant rejection of his compliment. That's what happens when you seldom compliment women but get all worked up over the oddest things.
'Give it up, Kimold.
There's a girl right in front of me who's so grossed out. I just...
'Even if you let Estella do your makeup here and now, it won't change the situation.
'Why not?You're the one who said it's easier to understand if you see it!
You said it yourself.
'Sure, you can tell by looking. But it doesn't matter if Estella wears make-up and it makes her beautiful, it's meaningless now.
'Because everyone here already knows that you can become beautiful by wearing makeup.
If you show us what we already know with a smug look on your face, we can only think, 'So what?
Besides, when dealing with beauty, you need to be sensitive and attentive.
If you don't provide what the customer wants, according to the customer's situation, and as the customer wants, the customer will not bite.
If there is a medicine that makes you beautiful if you keep eating it, no one will buy it if it costs a million yen a pill.
If the beauty method is not suitable for you, you will not be able to make people think, 'Let's try it.
'That's why Estella is no good. She's a beauty from the start.
When a beautiful woman advertises that she has become very beautiful with makeup!The reaction of the general public is 'Hmmm, at ......? That's how it is. They start picking their noses.
Even if a beautiful model with great proportions wears very stylish clothes, there are few girls who would want to try it on themselves. The hurdle is too high.
There are probably only a few girls who can see Estella getting beautiful and say, "Well, me too! I'll try it, too!" Probably there are no girls here who can do that.
This is because such a type must have already found a way to become beautiful on their own.
'Estella, who has a good face from the start and is also a lord with money, knowledge and skills, is not a good role model. See?
I'm not sure what to do, but I'm going to do it.
I'm not sure what's going on here.
I don't know what to do. I'm not sure what to do.
That's not it.I was not praising you, but explaining to the idiot Ricardo in a way that is easy to understand. ............I'm not sure what to do.
Estella turned into a piece of crap, and I turned to the women in the audience.
--I'm not sure what to say. I'm not sure what to make of it, but I'm sure it's a good idea.
...... Well, please don't look at me so coldly.
But since it's a good time to do so, let me take advantage of the discomfort that has now grown in these women.
That discomfort is 'envy'. Or, to put it more mildly, 'envy'.
If you think a beautiful woman is beautiful, then you should become like her. You should start trying to become one.
'Well, it's true that Estella is beautiful, but that doesn't mean that you have to compare yourself to her in any way. She's a professional, so to speak. It's part of his job to make himself look beautiful to others.
Well, like a model, she wants to be beautiful like this! Like a model, she may play a role in making people want to be beautiful like her.
Or perhaps, as Loretta said some time ago. 'The lord's daughter is beautiful and I admire her'.
'I'm here because I want to be beautiful, but I don't know what to do. In addition, they lack confidence. These are the 'average' women, right?
Emphasizing the word "common" here will dispel the fear that "I'm inferior because I can't be beautiful. I'm not beautiful enough. When you feel that 'Oh, this is normal,' it is easy to ignite the spirit of challenge.
It may seem like a high hurdle to make your 'bad self' beautiful, but if you can make your 'normal self' a little more beautiful, you can make people think, 'I might as well give it a try.
This is exactly what we are asking the women here to do.
'But you have taken the first step of your own volition. You have come to this place to try to become beautiful. That step has set you apart from the others who did not take action. The courage to take action. That's what all of us here, all of us, have in spades. You should be more proud of that.
A random act is praised.
There is a hint of confusion in that, but even so, when you decided to come here, you must have had some sort of hesitation and decision.
It must have been a great relief for them to be told clearly that it was not a mistake.
People become stronger when they are recognized. We can have courage.
From here on, I'm going to make it all happen.
The girls in this room are beginning to waver in their lack of self-confidence.
I'm going to stimulate that wobble even more, and blow away their lack of confidence at once.
'You don't have to be a professional to be beautiful. We know how to do it. And it's so simple - with a little knowledge and a few tricks - that anyone can do it.
It is easy to continue and easy to teach to others.
'Just by putting a single flower in an otherwise drab room, the scenery will be transformed into something more vivid. Even if you can't do a major renovation that requires professional skills, anyone can decorate a room with your favorite flowers. The simple act of choosing your favorite flowers is enough to create a beauty that is unique to you and no one else.
What is important is the enthusiasm to try and the courage to take the first step.
'It doesn't matter if you're clumsy or not good at it. The important thing is to keep trying. People change constantly. Even if at first you're just copying someone else, eventually it will become your own color. The only art in the world called "I". The only one who can create it is yourself.
The women are listening to me.
I'm sure there's a little something growing inside of them.
'Maybe I can become beautiful too ......', such a faint hope.
In order to make that hope bigger and clearer, I'm going to say to them.
'Everyone has the right to be beautiful. It's not a shallow thing!Because -- isn't it ............ nice to be a woman who strives to be beautiful for someone important?''
A sigh escaped from the crowd.
It seems that the element of beauty has safely taken root in your heart.
Now all we need to do is create an environment where we can carefully nurture it, and the women of this city will ............ spend a lot of money to become beautiful.
'Hey, Oba...... you, don't commit marriage fraud in the 41st district.
Ricardo is really an idiot. ......
I'm not going to do it, I'm not going to do it. I'm not going to do it. ...... Marriage scams have a high revenge rate.
I just want all women to be a little nicer than they are now.
I'm not sure what to say.I'm not sure what to do, but I'm going to do it.
Ricardo is struggling to hold his trembling right arm.
'Calm down, my right hand! That's it. ...... Pfft, you're a midget.
'Well, that's why. I'd like all of you pre-beauty girls to see something.
The term 'pre-beauty force' is a compliment that can be too stinky, but in a place where there are multiple people in the same position, it can become a joke.
'Oh, my God!It can be passed off with a light word like 'You're good.
A Hollywood star who came to Japan said, 'All Japanese women are beautiful. I'd like to take some of them home with me.' It's like when a Hollywood star comes to Japan and says something like s*xual harassment, but it's taken as mischievous lip service.
The women in front of me were giggling at my words. It's like, 'What are you talking about? But the atmosphere is just right.
At my signal, Natalia and the others emerged from the waiting room in the square.
Out came Natalia and Ukrines.
And the volunteers of the 42nd district, who are very interested in beauty. ...... In other words, the usual members. Ginette and Magda and Loretta and Delia and Norma and Imelda.
Bertina, Regina and Milly are not participating this time.
Bertina can't leave the 42nd district without permission, and Regina goes without saying. Millie had taken a leave of absence from her work at the Flower Arrangement Guild to help Cantartica, but it seemed she had to make up for it. I'll have to make it up to her next time.
'Now, I'm going to ask you to transform into a normal girl from the 41st district, just like you.
When I gave the signal, Barbara appeared from the waiting room. It might be more accurate to say that she was brought in by ...... Ukrines.
Ginette is taking good care of Teresa, who was following Barbara.
'Well, gentlemen. What do you think of this woman ......, honestly?Do you think she's beautiful?'
I asked, but the women didn't say anything, just exchanged glances with the people in the vicinity.
'Whoa, shut up!You don't have to ask me every single time, there's no way Aashi is beautiful!
Barbara bared her fangs at me.
What the hell. You're the one who brought this up, remember?You said you'd 'do whatever I say' because you felt bad about skipping out on your promise to come eat popcorn.
So, you're going to be a freak show.
'Well, like this. She's not that great, she looks like she could be anywhere. ......'
'I told you it's annoying!
I'm sure Barbara is a girl after all. It's not like she's annoyed by people messing with her looks.
If that's the case, you should at least cut your bangs. ......
Barbara's bangs are so long that they cover her eyes, and her hair is so unkempt that it's shaggy and unkempt.
She doesn't take care of her skin, her lips are rough, and her nose is covered with dark stains from whatever she touched with her hands.
Her clothes are so shabby that she can barely keep them on. It was hardly fashionable at all.
All the women who saw Barbara would think. 'I'm better than you.'
That's true. Barbara was forced to live a life of extreme poverty just to survive. She was less fashionable than girls who lived a normal life.
That's why they come alive!
'So, remember what he looks like now, what he looks like, what he wears, what he's like.
He gave the signal to Ukrines and the others.
I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do it. --Barbara is kidnapped.
Since there will be some waiting time, I ask Becko to draw a picture of Barbara (before) during that time. The purpose is to compare it with Barbara (after).
The crowd and Ricardo are amazed at the lifelike drawing.
Hmmm. It's amazing. I'm not doing it.
After about twenty minutes of waiting, the transformed Barbara finally appears.
I'm not sure where to put my energy, and I'm not sure what to do.
You can find a lot more information on the web at .......I'm not sure what to do.
I'm not sure what to make of it, but I'm sure it's a good idea.
The reason why she looked so unattractive was because of her annoying bangs, dirt, and frown.
When I fixed them, applied a hint of make-up, and coordinated her whole body in a fashion that accentuated the material, she became a beautiful woman.
Well, she didn't exceed my imagination, but if she gets used to fashion in the future and learns to smile more naturally, she will become more radiant.
Nevertheless, it's not bad. I can give it a passing grade. The proof of this is that the crowd, who were watching Barbara's before and after with delicate faces, involuntarily let out a mutter of 'beautiful ......'.
'Hey, girl, what's up?
'Barbara, you've transformed beautifully.
'Yes. Very much.'
Teresa's cheeks relaxed with happiness as Ginette explained.
I can't wait to show her. I can't wait to show you my sister's beautiful face.
Then, I asked him to stand next to the picture he drew, and showed him that he could make a beautiful picture in such a short time. The eyes of the audience and the women's eyes suddenly began to burn with enthusiasm.
The eyes of the audience and the eyes of the women suddenly began to burn with enthusiasm.
The eyes of the audience and the women's eyes suddenly became eager.The first step to beauty.
The voice is not yellow, but it is lively and hopeful.
The women are squealing with excitement, imagining the future.
Although their reactions differed slightly depending on their age, all of them had a sense of anticipation on their faces.
With more than 20 women in tow, we left the main street.
We rented a store that happened to be vacant, and asked them to practice Delia's shape-up exercises there.
The goal is to achieve moderate fatigue and a good sweat.
I designed the program and taught it to Delia.
As expected, Delia is a quick learner. When it comes to physical exercise, she is simply amazing. No matter how much I explain to her about how to be a ...... waitress, she never understands.
'So, Delia here is going to teach you some exercises to make your proportions beautiful. There's no need to strain yourself, just try to copy her as much as you can.
While I was explaining this, the women were still cheering for Delia's 'Vine! The women were glued to Delia's perfect body. The women were glued to Delia's perfect body.
Having Delia as a lecturer - ......, where she teaches exercises to improve proportions, makes us think that we can have those proportions!--That's what I thought.
Delia's style is good from the start and has nothing to do with exercise, but the women of the 41st district have no way of knowing that.
But the women in the 41st district have no way of knowing that, they just assume that 'exercise makes you beautiful! That belief is what makes them "sustainable.
That belief is the power to last.
Belief is important, everyone.
The exercise was over in about 20 minutes.
All the participants were slumped on the floor. Only Delia was standing unconcerned.
The people from District 42 who were secretly participating in the back were also exhausted and lying on the floor.
I, on the other hand, was tired just watching .......
The participants were exhausted, using muscles they don't normally use in their daily work.
However, that feeling of fatigue created a sense of satisfaction that "I did my best! and that feeling of satisfaction gives rise to the hope that 'this might make me beautiful! and that feeling of satisfaction gives us hope.
The human mind is very simple.
Just being affirmed by someone fills you up. And then you can work harder the next time.
'Alright, you guys did a great job!You look a little more beautiful now, don't you?
At Delia's words, the participants look at each other.
Around them are friends who have experienced their first time, and who are now moderately tired and suitably satisfied.
There was no sense of anxiety on their faces, but rather a sense of relief that they had been recognized and a sense of anticipation that they might become even more beautiful.
Their faces must be incomparably brighter than when they were just going through the motions of everyday life.
That's why it must look like this.
'Oh, she's more beautiful than before.
Then, you will continue to think like this.
'Then I'm sure I'll look like ......'.
A mere expectation turns into confidence.
These women are standing at the crossroads.
To them, I send these very sweet words.
'So, after this, it's time for that lunch you've been waiting for.
Reward yourself for your hard work.
I'm sure that your moderately tired body will make the food taste even better.
That's how we ended up at the well-known Sourb. This is Osina's restaurant.
After exercising and chatting, we arrived at the restaurant just before noon. The sun would soon reach the top of the sky.
Osina's store, which I hadn't visited in a long time, is still tucked away in an alley, and the trees decorating the front of the store create a unique atmosphere in a good way.
It is the kind of store that you would never enter unless you were introduced to it, but if you turn this around, it turns into a place that only people in the know know know.
When you open the door, the natural wood counters and interiors that have been well processed from their natural state catch your attention.
Leaves of banana-like plants decorate the ceiling, and a cool breeze blows through from the back of the store.
When you open the door, the breeze must be coming through. If that is the aim of the design, the designer is quite impressive. A store where you are greeted by a light breeze is 'possible' enough for a store with this kind of taste.
said one of the female participants, looking at the Asian-style restaurant with curiosity.
I've never seen a building with this kind of atmosphere anywhere else, so it must be very rare.
As I led the women into the store, I saw a stylishly transformed Barbara enjoying a cup of tea with Estella on the terrace seating through a large opening in the back of the store, with the sun shining down through the trees.
The scene, reminiscent of a large painting, seemed to tickle the women's hearts as the harmony of light and wind was pleasant to the eyes and skin.
In other words--
Oh my God, this is so stylish!
Such a flirtatious gaze gathered at the seats on the terrace.
'You have very good taste, don't you?
If Imelda, an aristocratic young lady of 360 degrees, praises the atmosphere of the restaurant, it will give her an extra edge. For these participants.
A world they had never known. The recognition by their superiors that it's a wonderful thing. It can be a kind of guarantee.
It's the same kind of psychology that turns a lightly seasoned soup into an elegant one when the chef says, "This is delicious.
You're here, aren't you?
Then, Osina, the owner of the restaurant, appears in front of the customers.
To tell you the truth, I had asked her to stay hidden at first. I asked her to stay hidden at first so that our eyes wouldn't wander everywhere.
Let's take a look around. And now, Osina.
'Beautiful people ......'
Someone leaks a few words.
Today, the women who have been exposed to the sense of beauty so far seem to feel much closer to 'beautiful' than ever before.
By recognizing the beauty of others, a desire to learn something from them has quietly and surely sprouted. I guess that's how it is.
'I've never seen a group like this before.
Osina's lips pursed as the group of customers filled the restaurant. She looks happy.
'I've prepared some special dishes for you today. Please enjoy it.
Prior to this project, Oshina and I had a meeting beforehand.
I, Osina, Ginette, and Estella have carefully discussed and decided on the dishes that will be served.
Ginette will give her opinion as a chef, Estella will give her opinion from a nobleman's point of view, Osina will arrange the dishes to suit her restaurant, and I will propose 'a twist that girls will love.
'At Osina's restaurant, I want you to eat a lot of delicious vegetables.
There are almost no meat dishes in Osina's restaurant.
Most of the menu is made up of vegetables and fruits.
The main reason for this is that Osina does not like meat very much.
In fact, when she was working at CantalucÃa, the meaty smell of the sausages burned her a little.
When I explained to him that I wanted him to come back to this restaurant, he said, "That's great. That restaurant was very fun, but the noise and smell was a little hard on me,' she said with a wry smile. If you can't stand the smell of meat and the noise, you can't work at Cantalucia.
After all, this restaurant suits Osina the best.
'Hi, you've been waiting for us...'
With the help of Ginette, Magda and Loretta, a variety of colorful vegetables were brought to each table.
First, a salad with arugula as the main ingredient. The dressing was made with ume plums and yuzu, giving it a refreshing acidity.
Square-cut tomatoes and salty cheese are mixed in to give the salad a deep color and flavor.
Osina wandered over to me as I leaned against the counter by the kitchen to observe the scene in the restaurant.
She looks at the faces of the female customers and seems to be feeling a good response.
'It tastes good when you add prosciutto.
'If you like meat, you might need that, too.
Osina seemed to like this salad, too, and said she would like to play around with it in the future.
She would like to experiment with the dressing.
'I got a lot of ideas from the manager of the sunny pavilion. She's a culinary genius.
Osina thinks very highly of Jeannette.
The reason for her high opinion is the potage soup that was just brought to her.
Ginette's famous pumpkin potage is brought in by Magda and her friends.
The women's cheeks relaxed involuntarily at the sweet, warm soup.
Seeing this, Osina returned to the kitchen with a satisfied look on her face.
She went on to prepare the main course.
'It's a good feeling,' she said.
Estella, who had been working as a tea-drinking model on the terrace, was relieved of her duties as soon as the meal began, and returned to us backstage.
As expected, she didn't seem to have any resistance to being watched.
Barbara, on the other hand, is ......
'...... is ............ embarrassing!
He couldn't stand to be the center of attention and ran to the kitchen as soon as the OK was given.
Even now, he is curled up behind the counter, hiding himself.
'You look beautiful, Barbara.
'Ugh, it's so annoying!Why is Aarushi doing this ............ ugh, because it was Aarushi who broke her promise ...... or is it Aarushi who is at fault... .........Oh, shit!
I was kind of writhing.
This guy's funny.
'I'm not going to bully you.'
With a snap, Estella's back fist smacked me in the temple.
Because it's funny. She's saying something like 'uyu-nyu'.
'Yashiro-san. I'm about to serve the main dish.
Jeannette walks into the kitchen with a lively face.
He loves the kitchen no matter where he is.
A full course of vegetables may make you think that you will be bored with all the vegetables, but depending on how you cook them, they can be a main part of the meal.
They are beautiful to look at, taste perfect, and above all, they bring joy to the eating experience.
It is something that makes mealtime happy and gives you more than enough satisfaction.
This is the dish I proposed with the aim of creating something like that.
'Here you go, sir. Oil fondue with vegetables.
A small ceramic bowl filled with lightly fragrant olive oil radiated heat on a virtue-like base.
Underneath the pottery is a candle with a high heat factor, which I taught Becko before, to heat the olive oil.
The vegetables are cut into bite-sized pieces on iron skewers and dipped into the olive oil for a few seconds.
Just by doing so, the color of the vegetables will become more vivid and the table will look more colorful.
Furthermore, the vegetables become sweeter as they are heated.
Because they are deep-fried, they also contain fewer calories.
And the dipping sauces that we have prepared will allow you to enjoy your meal to the fullest.
I prepared a spicy miso sauce with soybean paste, a mayonnaise made with Neffery's fresh eggs and olive oil, wasabi mayo with chopped wasabi mixed in, a curry flavored sauce, yuzu kosho, and sesame sauce.
I thought of making a bagna cauda, but I decided to make an oil fondue, thinking that women would be attracted by the added pleasure of being able to taste various things at once. It seems that my plan was a success.
'Ginette. It's about time you gave her some information about vegetables.
Ginette looks really happy when she talks about food.
So I asked her to explain about the food.
Osina is not very good at that kind of thing,...... Well, she is a ponderous person in a different way than Ginette,...... so I asked Ginette, who has the most knowledge, to do it for me.
There is another plan,......, too.
It's not just that vegetables are good for you, but that eating a lot of them in a balanced way can make you healthier. Not only that, but even if you eat a lot of them, they contain fewer calories than meat and you won't gain weight.
The women listened to Ginette's explanation with admiration, saying, "Wow!
There were a lot of vegetables in front of us, but even if we ate all of them, it wouldn't be a lot of calories.
You can enjoy the satisfaction of having eaten, but not the regret of 'I ate too much ......' the next day. This is the kind of dreamy food that you see here now.
'You can't eat too much of any dish, though.
Ginette joked, laughing along with the participants.
The women's expressions softened considerably.
'The lycopene contained in tomatoes has a strong antioxidant effect and makes the blood thinner. Not only that, but it also protects against skin problems such as dry skin and wrinkles. In addition, it also makes your skin finer.
Ginette shows off the knowledge I've given her in front of the participants.
Lycopene is said to be a hundred times more potent than vitamin E in removing active oxygen that causes aging. Lycopene also protects the skin from ultraviolet rays that damage the dermal layer and reduces the loss of collagen, thus keeping the skin soft and supple with less wrinkles.
By acquiring such knowledge, the vague idea that "eating vegetables will make you beautiful" will expand.
Vague knowledge is fine.
That feeling of 'it's kind of good' tickles the intellectual curiosity and gives women the motivation to work hard with the pleasure of 'knowing'.
'Also, soybeans are the raw material for miso and soy sauce.
At this point, he starts to share his knowledge, which I had strongly requested him to say.
I had a hard time convincing him that 'there is a lot of demand for it.
'Isoflavones, which are found in soybeans, are said to make ...... breasts bigger.
--After all, it is very effective!
As with Delia's proportions, there is no causal relationship between Jeannette's huge breasts and isoflavones.
But this fact is not known to the women here.
So they simply believe it.
'Isoflavones make ...... such big breasts! And...
The women's eyes are glued to one point.
Yeah, yeah. I know the feeling. I'm glued to it all the time, too.
Now that I've given the participants a little knowledge and a little hope, I have a special surprise for them.
A surprise that will determine the success of this project.
'Hey, come on in.
At my call, Osina, Medora and Javier come out of the kitchen.
The women are speechless at the sudden appearance of the two big guys. ...... Well, don't be so scared.
'You know Medora, the head of the hunting guild, and Javier, the head of the other big guild, the lumberjack guild. They've taken time out of their busy schedules to come as special guests.
Since we are in the 41st district, it goes without saying that Medora is well known. But Javier's name is probably lower than Medora's, so I thought I'd introduce him to you.
The women applauded in confusion.
'Actually, Medora is a regular at this restaurant.
The women shouted in surprise at my information.
Medora, who is synonymous with muscle, frequents a restaurant that serves such meatless food. That must be a shocking fact.
'I like the food here. I rarely eat out except here. This restaurant's food is the best for my body.
The women couldn't help but let out a gasp at the unknown side of the mainstay of District 41.
'Javier and Medora are considered to be the strongest in all of Broome, but Medora maintains her strength with the power of vegetables. He's just as strong as Javier, isn't he?
He said, pointing to their bodies.
I'm sorry Javier, but you're going to have to be the comparison. This is a sample to show that you don't need to eat meat to maintain this kind of body - more specifically, that vegetables are as rich in nutrients as meat.
If you want to build muscle, I recommend you eat meat, but the girls here don't want to be muscular like Javier. But the girls here don't want to be muscular like Javier, so all they need to know is that 'vegetables are great!
'Also, they're close in age, but ...... Medora is younger and has better skin, right?
I have informed Javier of my plan in advance.
I told Javier in advance what I was going to do, and he agreed to take the bait of telling me about a fashionable restaurant that Imelda would like very much.
In addition, Javier is quite a gentleman, so he will not complain about standing up for women. ...... even if that person is Medora.
Yes, that is the mark of a gentleman.
...... So when Medora says, 'Oh my God!I'm not sure what to do, but I'm sure it's a good idea. You can't see, hear, or sense that Medora is saying, "This is a proposal!
'What's more surprising--'
And I'll send a 'sorry' look to the 'two' who are to be compared here.
Javier, as well as Medora, gave me a 'don't worry about it' look. So, I'm going to drop the most shocking fact of the day.
'Osina, the owner of this store, is the same age as Medora.
'''' Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!
That's right, that's right, you'd be surprised.
I'm sure you'll be amazed at how much younger you look.
And just like the isoflavone, the women in this room are thinking.
'If I go to this store, I might be able to keep that youthful look for years to come! And...
By the time we ate the carrot pancakes for dessert, the participants' eyes were glittering with the prospect of a bright future.
'I'm going to be beautiful, too! They said.
