'Yashiro, the prototype is ready!
Hey, you're early!
Early in the morning, the day after the "Late Spring Bread Festival". Norma came running into the sunny pavilion with a big smile on her face.
She had a huge smile on her face, but her hair was tousled, her eyes were dark, and her skin was dry. ...... She must have been up all night.
'Norma. I told you there's no hurry.
'It's not finished yet. It's still in the meeting stage before it's ready to go into production.If we don't get it right here, it'll affect the quality of the finished product.
And so on. ......
In the event you're not sure what you're looking for, you'll be able to find out more about it here.
'Because I felt that if I didn't hurry, the carpenters would take my job. ......'
'No, it's not the carpenter's job to work the steel plate. ......'
'But it's Umaro. ......'
How much of a rival do you think Umaro is?
I'm not leaving everything to Oumalo, either.
You're not ...... doing it, are you?
I'm not sure what to do.I'm not sure what to make of it.
'...... Magda's handling of sugar is now professional level.
...... Because that's what it is, right?
Yeah. I knew I couldn't rely on you that much.
So we're not in the same boat, ever!
'Norma is the only one I can rely on for this job, so don't be too reckless. I'm no match for you if you fall.'
'I'm the only one you can count on?
'Of course not. I need strength, performance, and if possible, weight reduction and miniaturization. I can't trust anyone but Norma.'
'I see!I see, I see. I see...'
He chuckles happily, and looks at Umaro with a triumphant look on his face and snorts, 'Hmmm.
Do something about it, you homophobe. ......
'So, I hear you've got a prototype?
'Oh, yeah. I made it according to the shape and purpose that Yashiro mentioned.
It was placed on the table with a thud, and was a steel plate in the shape of the letter 'U'.
The upper part had a certain amount of space for charcoal, a lid to keep out the fire, and a chimney to let the smoke escape.
The bottom was covered with hexenbiest leather and a sturdy wooden board to prevent the heat of the hot iron from being transmitted to other parts of the room.
In short, it is a machine for heating an iron plate to a hot temperature in a room.
It is, of course, used for cooking.
The idea is that if you put a piece of bread in the open part of the "U", the surface will be browned by the heat of the griddle.
If you put cheese on the bread, it would be melted by the heat.
If you place the bread directly on the griddle, it will burn, so you put a wire mesh on it and heat it from above and below to toast it.
When the pizza toast was unveiled, it was heated using a torch flame, but such a dangerous thing cannot be done indoors.
So I thought of a relatively safe way to make pizza toast, and this U-shaped toaster was the result!
No, I couldn't use an oven, so I tried to find a substitute for a stone oven.
It has some drawbacks, such as it takes a long time for the griddle to heat up, a longer time for it to cool down, it's quite dangerous when in use, the fuel cost is high, it's smoky, and so on, but if it can replace a stone oven, it will be worth using.
After all, if it is approved, it can bake pizza and make bread.
If the city's definition of bread is "bread made from flour baked in a stone oven," then if it is baked in an iron oven instead of a stone oven, it is not bread at all.
Since it is difficult to adjust the heat, it is unlikely to bake bread, but if you can maintain a constant temperature, you should be able to make pizza!
At least you can make pizza toast!At least pizza toast!
So, I asked Norma to do it with a light heart, but I didn't expect her to stay up all night to finish the prototype.
'Wow, it's really big.
Ginette's eyes sparkled when she saw the U-shaped oven Norma had brought.
She looks at it like a boy staring at a toy robot.
'If this thing reaches about 200 degrees, I can quickly bake the surface of the bread to a crisp.
'You can get it to that temperature. It'll take a while, though.
If you put burning charcoal on the top of the griddle and heat the whole griddle, it will take a long time for the griddle to get hot.
Besides, even the slightest touch would cause instant burns.
'I'd like to make this more practical.
'Then let me know what you think!Why don't you try it for now?You know?You should try it!
'Norma, calm down.
Norma lifts up a large piece of iron and pushes it hard.
Just calm down. And get some sleep.
'Ginette, can you make room in the kitchen?
'Yes. If I put a stand by the stove, ...... will it burn if it's made of wood?'
'It'll be fine!This hexenbiest's leather is the secret!Besides, I've done some work on the iron here, so very little heat will be transferred to the stand.
'So, yeah, I see. ...... Haha.'
Jeannette, too, is slightly taken aback by Norma's fever.
Her smile is a little twitchy.
'Hmm?What is it?Oh, if you're going to join steel and wood, you might want to cut the join a little more like this: ......'
'You're being very picky!Don't you dare interfere with me!
Umaro couldn't help but interrupt Norma.
Don't worry, Norma.
It won't be taken away. Don't stare at me with that scary look.
Don't say 'garu-ruu'. Don't growl, Norma. Don't go back to the wild. Come back.
'Come on, Manager!Let's get to the kitchen!We'll have a leisurely meeting with the relevant people. Don't hesitate to tell me if there's anything you'd like to see improved. Come on, come on, come on.
I'm sure you'll be able to figure out what's going on.
...... I don't know why she's so desperate.
I'm sure you'll be able to find a lot of people who'd like to have a look at it. ......
'You were helping her, chopping up a mountain of cabbage.'
'That was not Yashiro's request, but Paula's.'
'What's that? Stop ...... singling me out like that.
If Paula asked you to do something that I asked you to do, it's the same as if I had asked you to do it. ...... I mean, it's not worth it to get a direct order from me.
I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do that.
'If the temperature is well controlled.
'That'll be fun~'
By the way, Umaro has eaten pizza before, right?
That was the first time he met the Yaprock family. ............ Oumalo, you've been with them in many places.
What?Are they your friends?
Are you my friend, Oumalo?
'What is it?
'My right to be your friend is paid for.
'Then I'll put up with you as an acquaintance. ......'
'There's no annual fee for the first year.
'Oh, that's okay. I don't think I can cancel it.'
I see. It's a shame, I thought I could get some unearned income every year.
'By the way, Magda's friend rights are also paid for--'
'I'll become a premium member!
'Premium membership costs 10,000 Rb a year--'
'Haha!That's a bargain!
Can you afford that?
Can you afford it?
'I think I'll go for 100,000Rb. ......'
'I'll increase my workload!
'............ You're not my friend.'
'......?You're an acquaintance, right?
'Magda, Umaro is tormenting me!
'Muhaa!Angry Magda is cute too!
No, this guy.
He's a really bad adult.
He's a cold person who doesn't understand the feelings of others,.......
'...... Does Umaro hate Yashiro?
'I love him. In the event that you have any questions concerning where and how to use the internet, you can contact us at .......
'......Yashiro loves Umaro. You can tell by looking at him.'
'It's an honor. '............ And Magda?
'...... Magda loves Umaro. ............'
'............There's a fee from here on out.'
'Haaaaan!I'm not sure what to make of this, but I'm sure it's a good idea.
Umaro looks like he's having fun over there.
d*mn!I'm not interested in that!We're not friends!
He's just an acquaintance!Peck!Pfft!
'...... nice, avenue parcel, subside ......'
'You're starting to scare me!My carpenter is going to get hurt, stop it!
I can't believe I just said that. ......
They say there are spirits of speech, so we should be careful~.
As I laughed, holding my mouth in an elegant manner, Barbara entered the store roughly, raising her voice in a vulgar manner.
'You are so vulgar!
'Hmm?What are you playing at?Are you kidding me?'
'I'm not joking, Zamasu!
'No, that's a little scary if you're serious, Yashiro-san. ......'
Not caring that I was lifting up my triangular glasses in my mind, Barbara took the seat in front of me without permission.
Why are you sitting in front of me? Why don't you sit in an empty seat?
'What are you doing here?
'Oh!My father told me to take this to the hero.
A linen cloth bag was placed on the table.
Inside was milled corn flour.
'It's called delivery, you know.
'It's the same, isn't it?
'Remember, it's confusing.
'I'm going to tell Bertina, aren't I?
'Delivery!Not delivery. Delivery.
When I mentioned Bertina's name, Barbara started to listen to me.
Mothers are great, aren't they?
Weller, the pampering mother, and Bertina, the strict disciplinarian.
This very troubled child has come to listen to me at once.
Incidentally, the peddler's guild has given their consent through Assunto to have Yaprock, Nepheli, and Delia, with whom the Sunlit Pavilion has had exclusive contracts in the past, supply the food directly to them.
Or rather, they told me not to nag them, but to call on them if I needed anything.
This is a kind of give-and-take, isn't it?
'Huh?Mr. Barbara. Have you come to have dinner?
'Whoa!Big brother!Barbara used the right word, didn't she?
'Hmmm!Isn't that great?
You've been underestimated.I'm about to get angry.
'What was Loretta doing?Delivering?
'Oh, ...... I see. I can't resist using a word I just learned.'
Very perceptive, Loretta.
That's exactly right.
'I'm practicing a new product.'
'A new product?
'It's a red bean paste doughnut!The oil is dangerous so I'm only allowed to do it when the manager and my brother are around, but I'm going to practice a lot so I can do it by myself!
'...... But Magda is one step ahead of me.
Standing up quickly, Magda walked into the kitchen.
There is only one pan for frying, so Loretta and Magda are practicing alternately now.
Now that Loretta has come out, it is Magda's turn.
Incidentally, all the doughnuts made during this practice period will be donated to the church.
I'm sure those kids will be happy to eat them, even if they're a little raw or burnt.
The kids were very happy to have a sweet gift from us other than in the morning.
It was a win-win situation for us, since we could practice and not waste any food.
It's a win-win situation.
'Since the red bean doughnuts came out later in the bread festival, the little kids were too full to eat the doughnuts. So, the older brother said that he felt sorry for them, so he decided to let them eat a lot of donuts for practice.
'...... I didn't say that.
It's not that I'm not a good person, but I'm not a good person.
'.................. It's a difference of interpretation.'
Do you really want to make me out to be a good guy?
I wouldn't say that, it's not in my best interest.
I just thought that the more people who make donuts, the better, because donuts definitely sell.
In Japan, it cost money to throw things away.
In Japan, it cost a lot of money to throw things away. I've successfully reduced that cost, yeah.
'Yashiro. You've got that look on your face when you're making excuses to yourself.
He says with a bounce, and a slightly cold fingertip presses my forehead a little.
When I looked up, Nephrite was right in front of me, wondering when I'd walked in.
'...... What the hell, Neffery. You're talking like Estella.'
'Because you're so easy to understand, Yashiro.'
'Ho-ho, that's funny. Now guess what I'm thinking!
Estella. She must've told Neffely something stupid. What a nonsense. That's why she won't grow up, Estella's flat-chested!
'Well, ......, you were thinking about Estella's breasts, weren't you?
'That's great, Neffery!
This guy, can he read people's minds? ......!
'Yes ......, I'm sorry to say that I'm shocked, but Yashiro, you're really easy to understand.
You can't be that stupid.
I've been called the great fraud of the end of the century,......, well, I was still a great fraud beyond 2001, but.
'So, Neffery. What can I do for you?'
'Delivery?I didn't ask for ......, did I?'
I needed some eggs for doughnut practice, so I asked Hammaro to run an errand, but I didn't ask him to deliver them to Nephrite.
Hammaro just had to go and bring them back.
'I heard from Hammaro-chan that they were practicing making red bean paste doughnuts at the sunny pavilion, so I came to 'help' him.
'So you want me to eat the ones you made for practice for free?
'Yes!Hey, I'll give you a big serving of eggs, okay?Isn't that right?
She winked up at me with her five fingertips neatly aligned.
It's a good pose for begging and pampering, but the ...... face is chicken. To be honest, it's really scary to have a chicken looking up at you from below.
I nodded my head.
'So ......, you're right, it's a good idea, why don't you eat it?
'Wow!Thanks, Yashiro!I'm sure you know what you're talking about!
This kind of behavior is called 'blackmail' or 'extortion', Neffery. It has nothing to do with kindness or anything like that, you know.
'Huh~......, you're so cute, Nephrite!
Hmm?What's the matter, Barbara?
Are you losing your eyesight too?Eat your blueberries. Take your vitamins. Take your vitamins.
Teresa's eyesight's getting better, so stick with me.
I don't know what I was thinking, but after an excited pout, Barbara glanced up at me with her fingertips together, just like Nephrite.
'Do me a favor, will ya?
'Barbara. You're totally mugging me.'
You're really giving me a hard time, aren't you? Don't furrow your brow.
Don't move your chin up and down, don't look back and forth.
'You go home and get some work done.
'Oh, no!Why is that?Your reaction is totally different from Neffery's!
'Ah~, big brother is a little kinder to Nephrite for some reason.
'He's a little partial to her.
'Eh, yeah, that's not true~'
'See!That flapping of the hands!That kind of thing is cute, I'm sure!
'I see!So you're favored because you're cute!It's nice to be cute!
'Cute is justice!
'Moooooo!That's not true!I'm not cute. ...... Look, look!You should say something to her, Yashiro!
Even if you do, ......
In the event that you have any questions regarding where and how to use the internet, you can call us at the web site.
As I held my temples against a mysterious headache, Loretta and Barbara began to have a whispered meeting around Nepheli.
I'm sure it's not much to talk about, but ......
'Mr. Nepheli!You can teach us how to be cute!
'E~, no, no, no!I can't!I don't understand.
Nephrite waved his hands in front of his face.
Her head is also shaking uncomfortably from side to side.
'Aaah!You're so cute!
'Okay!I'll copy this!I'm off!
Ah, there's a bad one approaching.
Barbara is standing in front of me, waving her hands in front of her face and shaking her head from side to side.
'I don't know, I don't know!
'Oh, you're an idiot, aren't you?
'You're a terrible hero!
Barbara jumped into Loretta's chest with a bang.
Loretta and Nephrite are patting her on the head as she hugs Barbara, who has fled before the enemy.
...... You're an idiot. I'm not sure what to say.
'Yashiro-san, I sprinkled powdered sugar on Loretta-san's practice doughnuts. ...... What happened?'
Molly, who was holding the tray, gave a dumbfounded look when she saw the devastation on the floor.
'Oh, good morning.'
'Eh~, why why why?'
Neffery was excited to find Molly.
It seems that his liking for Molly has skyrocketed since the field day.
'I want to know how the new sugar is, so I'll help you ......'.
'The new sugar, the stuff around here?'
'Yes. It's called powdered sugar, and my brother made it at Yashiro's request.'
'Percy, you've worked hard. Then you should praise him.
Immediately after Neffery said that, a man outside the store called out, 'Zja-ja! sounded like a grown man thudding on the ground.
It sounded like he was probably making a big gut punch or something.
I can easily imagine the look of happiness on his face. ......
Molly also seemed to have noticed something strange outside.
'No, no. You don't need to praise them too much, because it's natural for them to accept requests and deliver products.
'But, it's a new product?That's great.''
'It's only because of Yashiro's advice.
'Still, I respect you.
'Please don't, you get carried away too easily. My brother's an idiot.
Molly is checking to make sure that her brother, who is probably outside the store listening in, isn't getting too carried away. He's having a hard time, isn't he?
'Besides, I told you that I was going to visit the Sunlit Pavilion today, but you haven't been there since this morning. You can forgive him if he forgot his schedule, but ...... if he was skipping work and playing around, ......... ...I have to be really angry. ...... Well, I believe somewhere in my heart that he is probably there to trade for the raw material, sugar radish... I'm not sure what to think.
A black aura pours out from Molly's back.
Wow, she's mad, she's mad as hell.
She must have sensed all of this just from the anger in her voice. ...... Behind the door, there was a 'slam, slam, slam! There was a racket on the other side of the door and then there was silence.
You'll have to be careful not to get cut off, make-danuki.
'...... haha. You can't ............ be that stupid.'
In the event that you have any questions regarding where and the best way to get in touch with us, please do not hesitate to contact us.
It's complicated, isn't it, from Molly's point of view?
'So, Yashiro-san. This red bean paste doughnut is from .......'
'Ah, give these to Nephrite and the others for now.
'Are you sure?What about the donation to the church?'
'I'm sure they'll make more anyway.Hey, Loretta?'
'Yes!I want to try one more time when I'm done with Magdacho!
'Okay. Let's all enjoy it together.
'Thank you for the food!
As soon as Molly put down the tray, Nephrite and Barbara picked up the doughnuts. Barbara takes two at once.
'Delicious~!I love how moist they are.
'Yummy!Wow, this one's a little bitter!
'Oh, that's the worst one!Please pretend that didn't happen.
A group of girls buzzing over a donut.
Umaro doesn't come close. It's not that there are a lot of girls and he's feeling self-conscious ......, it's just that he's waiting for the next donut from Magda.
'Hey Yashiro. What's the difference between this powdered sugar and regular sugar?'
'It's the size of the grains.
Powdered sugar is made by finely grinding white sugar or granulated sugar in a mortar.
But how coarse and how much is just right? It was up to the sensibility of the craftsman.
In Japan, it would be enough to use a mixer, but we don't have electricity here.
I could have made them at the Sunlit Pavilion, but I wanted to save myself the trouble, considering the fact that I was going to sell An-Donut in a big way.
So I told Percy, "Make the powdered sugar that you think is 'the one! So I asked Percy to 'make a powdered sugar that you think is 'the one!
He's a joker, but he's uncompromising when it comes to sugar.
As I imagined, he came up with a good quality powdered sugar. There was no variation in the grains, and it was smooth and fine.
It's so good!
Nephrite let out a sigh of satisfaction after eating one of the an-donuts.
Her beak is covered with powdered sugar.
It's quite a surreal sight. ......
'Ah, it was good!It was a little bitter, though!
'So, that's an exception, because that's the worst one!
Barbara's mouth was covered with powdered sugar as she gobbled up the two.
What kind of food are you eating?
'You guys have sugar on your mouths.
'Oh?Don't worry about it, dude!It's food, it's fine.'
Nephrite and Barbara reacted to my point in opposite ways.
Nephrite traces his beak with his fingertip as if in a panic.
Barbara, on the other hand, licked her lips with her tongue.
She's got a lot of girl power.
And then Percy, who I had thought had returned to the 40th district, came. Or rather, she jumped in.
He was holding a muddy sugarcane radish in his hand.
'Hello, Anchan!I just dropped by on my way to work.'
Here's the liar.
'Oh, no!Isn't that Mr. Nefari? What a coincidence...'
That liar is a blatant stalker.
'What's wrong with you today, Percy?Are you working?
'Well, well, something like that?Look, sugar beet!My precious work tool!
No, it's not a work tool. It's raw material.
I mean, in your line of work, there's no way you'd carry sugar beet all the way to District 42. There's no point in taking it out of the factory.
So where did the sugar beet come from? ...... It's hard to imagine that you went all the way back to District Forty. ...... Is it Assunto's sugar beet?I'm pretty sure he said he started making it months ago.
'Brother. You've been working, haven't you?
'Oh, what?Molly?Why are you here at ...... Oh, right!It's today, I'm coming to check on the powdered sugar, oops, I'm so careless, I'm really careless!
'I see. So you were careless.'
'Yeah, yeah. I was so absorbed in my work.'
'Hmmm... ...... So, I'll just play 'Judgment of the Spirits' once, okay?
'Wait, Molly!Don't do that with my siblings!Seriously!I'm not sure what to say.
You said it was ready yesterday and Molly said 'let me inspect it tomorrow' yesterday. You can't just forget something like that yesterday.
She should've been turned into a frog at least once. I feel too sorry for Molly.
'............ huh. Stupid brother.
The mutterings of Molly's soul, I suppose.
That's why you're letting him get away with it, you stupid brother.
'Molly is sweet.
'...... It's an occupational hazard.'
'..................?What do you mean?
'......, I'm sorry. Please don't ask.'
Molly turns her head away and starts shaking.
The tips of her ears are turning bright red.
She says it's sweet because I'm making sugar.
Ahhh, I see!
'Molly, that's so funny.
'I'm sorry, ......, please don't.'
What's funny is that Molly's reaction is so funny and cute right now.
I don't understand Nephrite's desire to make Molly his sister.
'So, what are you guys doing?Oh, these!An donut?
Percy pointed at the sweet bean jam doughnut on the tray, as if it was a deliberate act.
He probably wants to brag that he made the powdered sugar on it, or something intrusive like that.
'Actually, the sugar around here is called powdered sugar, and I made it for this, actually, between you and me, honestly!
'Yeah. I know.'
'Yeah,......, such a sweet and delicious thing,......, it's amazing,......, too good.'
Nephrite and Barbara have opposite reactions to Percy's boast.
I'm not sure if it's a good thing or not.
However, Percy's attention is completely on Nepheli, isn't it?
'What do you mean?This sugar is my passion, my effort, my ...... love?What do you mean?It's the crystallization of those things!
Percy, who seemed embarrassed by his own words, covered his face with his hands. It's not cute.
You're not cute, you stupid raccoon.
'Really, Percy, you're so devoted to sugar.
'Of course, sugar and me are like one ............ heart and soul.
When Percy saw Nepheli's face, he screamed.
I'm not sure what's going on here.
I'm not sure what to do, but I'm sure you'll be able to figure it out.I'm not sure if this is a good idea, but it's a good idea.
Before he could finish, he fell to the floor.
Hey, Loretta. Sweep it out.
'Oh, there's sugar on it. I was just about to take it off when Mr. Percy walked in and startled me. ......Don't look at me so much, I'm embarrassed.'
In the event that you're looking for a great deal more information on the web, there are many databases you should think about investigating.
Hey, Loretta. Bury it.
'...... d*mn it. You're such an idiot.
She agrees with her sister's disgusted voice.
And Barbara, who had grown strangely quiet, was shivering and trembling.
It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're going to be doing in the future, I'm sure you'll be able to understand why I've been so impressed with your work. ......Kick ............Kick ......!...... phew'!
I had the same delusion as Percy, and Barbara fell while sitting down and hit her head hard on the table.
Oh, ......, that sounded awesome.
Oh, Nephrite. Don't worry about it. It's a stupid thing to worry about.
'Hey, come on, Barbara. Stop fainting and lick it off.'
'What, licking ......?You're a pervert, hero!
'I don't want to hear it from you with your weird fantasies.'
'No, I'm not!
'The genie's ...... ......'.
'I'm sorry!I was!I'm sorry for having weird fantasies that I can't tell people about!
'No, Barbara-san!As a maiden, that's an area you shouldn't admit to!
Barbara wiped the sugar around her mouth with her sleeve with a bright red face.
At the same time as the powdered sugar falls to the floor, Percy comes back from the other world.
I'm not sure what to say. I was so happy I almost died.
Next time, take a one-way ticket instead of a round-trip ticket.
'Oh, that's right!Mr. Nefari!Would you like to eat a donut with me?I thought I wanted to eat one too.
You come back to life and immediately make a move on me, you're so careless. Molly's eyes are getting very cold.
'But I've just eaten one. ......'
Nephrite was probably planning to eat two or three of them, but it was hard for him to say, 'Okay, let's eat! But when the opposite s*x says so, it's hard for her to say, 'Okay, I'll eat it!
Perhaps such shame is the root of a woman's power.
However, a charlatan raccoon who does not read the atmosphere will offer you something sweet without a trace of delicacy.
'These are so good, you can have three of them!
'Yes, I can!Aashi, eat up!
Barbara, who has eaten two doughnuts, grabs another doughnut in each hand and starts to eat it.
By the way, at the church, Barbara was told by Percy that he liked girls who ate a lot and looked good.
'Come on, Nepheli-san!
'But if you eat too much, you'll get fat .......'
'Oh no!I'm sure you'll be fine, Nepheli-san!Seriously!
'No, that's not what I meant. ......'
Percy. That's no good.
Girls don't like it when guys say they're fine.
A woman's diet is a battle with herself.
Even if you have enemies, they are "girls" other than yourself.
It's bad manners for a man to interfere with them.
Silence is the right answer in such cases.
But there are girls who don't care about such things. ......
Barbara took Percy by the shoulders and defended him.
'That's right, Neffery!Mr. Percy likes girls who eat a lot!It doesn't matter if she's fat!The fatter the better,......, right?I'm sure you're right.
I'm sure you'll agree.Ah~...... no, fat girls are a bit ......'
I'm sure you'll agree.
Barbara's face is changing into a dramatic one.
That's what I'm talking about.
If you say 'I like girls who eat a lot' but 'I prefer girls who are thin', then your ideal type would be a hypogastric.
Or the kind of girl who runs all the time except when she's eating to burn calories?You're a hamster. Even hamsters get fat.
'See!Boys really like skinny girls, don't they?
'No, they don't. ...... Well, maybe they do, but ......'.
Percy's comment made Neffery's cheeks puff up.
............ cheeks!I'm not sure.I'm not sure what to do.
'But, but!I'm sure you'll be able to figure it out.It's more like an ideal style. ...... Oh, no!I don't have any ulterior motives.I don't mean that in a weird way.
'I don't think I can trust what you say, Percy. ......'
'Oh, no. ......'
Percy's face went blank as Nepheli stared at him.
Nepheli seems to be in a bad mood because he has stepped into a sensitive area.
Percy. I'm not going to say anything bad.
Don't say another word.
The more you try to recover, the further you'll go into the bottomless pit.
'But!Seriously, Mr. Neffely, you're not bad at all, or better yet, ......'
'That's enough, don't worry so much about it.
'Molly's been eating a lot of sweets for her sugar research, and she's getting really fat lately!
Percy, you ......
Behind me, a small voice said, '......? I heard a small voice behind me say.
'Molly, you're thin.
'No, no, no, you can't see my belly, it's really bad. The other day she sneaked a peek at the gymnastics class in the 42nd district and said she was practicing at home. I'm desperate.
'......I also have a stomach ............'
'Mr. Nepheli is totally fine!
Oh, ...... Mr. Neffely 'is' ............
'............If that's true, it's a job my brother should be doing. ......'
Behind me, I hear a dark whisper.
'Because my brother is playing around, ...... I have no choice but to do it all by myself. ............'
'To ............, what's that?Molly ......?What?What?What, are you angry ......?'
'From today, I'll be a child of the Sunshine Pavilion.'
'What?Wait, wait, wait, wait!
'I've been very good to you. I don't even want to see your face anymore, please leave me.
Molly turns away and heads for the kitchen.
The fact that she says 'I did' instead of 'thank you for your help' is very real, isn't it?
Just before entering the kitchen, Molly turns around and says with a very blank expression and a very flat voice.
'Oh, that's right. Tomorrow afternoon, we have to make a delivery to the peddler's guild, so you'd better go home right away and move the factory.
'No, that's Molly!
'What?What are you talking about, Mr. Factory Manager?
'Well, have a nice day.
The chief executive officer of the sugar factory is still Percy, just as Percy wanted, since he doesn't do any work but still clings to it. Even though Molly is in complete control of the business.
Percy ...... is the last person you want to piss off in this world, but your sister is.
'What,what should I do ...... Anchan......?'
'Why are you asking me?
'No, because ...... oh, that's right!Neffery-san, say something to Molly. ......'
'You need to learn a little more delicacy, Percy. ......'
I'm not sure what to make of it, but I'm sure it's a good idea.
I've been looking forward to the red bean doughnuts, but I don't think I'll be eating any more sweets after what he said. ......
Even if you're not really fat.
There are not many women who can say, 'You're skinny,' to 'I know, right? right? Imelda, Regina and Delia are the only ones in this town.
In most cases, they deny it, saying, 'That's not true.
And with that in mind. When you feel like 'I need to lose some weight, but I don't know if I'm ready.If you're forced to deny over and over again that you're not skinny, ...... you're not going to feel good.
'How,how,how,...... how,...... how,...... ah!
Percy crouched with his head in his hands.
Umaro is also looking down at the stupid raccoon with a dumbfounded look on his face.
He's shaking his head with a look of 'I can't help it'.
I don't want you to stay depressed here forever.
I put my hand on Percy's shoulder and tell him exactly what he should do.
'Go home and work.
'You can't do that when you're feeling like this, normally!
'This is not the time to be selfish. Show him that you're working and that you're sorry. And after you show your sincerity, you have to apologize sincerely.
'If you persist here, Molly's favorability rating will drop rapidly.
'If you don't deliver in time, you'll fall to the ground.
'Oh, dear!Two grown men are bullying me!
You're older than me, but in this world...'
'I'm sorry I'm late, but you're coming home!
While Percy was pondering, Hammaro came home with a bang.
It's getting late, isn't it?
'What were you doing, Hammaro?Nefari got here first and left already.
'Well, I told him where the sugar beet was, went to get it, gave it to him, thanked the person who gave me the sugar beet, and helped out a bit!
'...... Percy?You're not bothering my help, are you?
'No, no. ...... Well, the situation was what it was, or was it unavoidable?I'm not sure.
This raccoon is not afraid of ......
'Hammaro. Don't leave your post without notifying the person in charge.
'Oh, dear, ......, you're right to be angry, .......'
'You should be sorry.'
'I'm sincerely sorry. ......'
'Okay, I forgive you!
'A home run from hell!
'Ah, it's great that you can apologize so honestly, Hammaro! That's what sincerity is all about, isn't it?
Percy frowned as he stared at Hammaro, who raised his hands in joy.
'I ...... will go make some sugar!And I'll come back to apologize after work!Tell him that!
Percy runs out of the store screaming.
I hope this makes you feel a little better about yourself.
'...... Yes, Molly.'
'...... Yes. I heard you.'
Molly comes out of the kitchen.
I knew she hadn't retreated to the back.
'I'm sorry. It's kind of annoying to ...... be a child of the Sunken Pavilion without permission.'
'No?Just ask Jeannette. She'll be very happy to welcome you.''
'Haha,...... I'm sure she is. But taking advantage of that kindness is a bit ......'
'That's okay. Just help me out a little while you're here. See?Ginette.'
'Yes, sir. You're more than welcome.
A smiling Ginette appeared from behind Molly and placed her hand on Molly's shoulder.
Molly looked relieved, then turned and bowed to Jeannette.
'I'll be looking after you for a while.
'Yes, ma'am. Please make yourself at home.
Really. I don't know how I grew up to be such a good girl under that brother.
'So, that ...... Yashiro-san.'
Molly calls out my name in a reserved manner.
'That's what my brother was saying. ......'
What Percy was saying ............ is that?
'Actually,......, it's rather true,............'.
So ...... it's bad.
'If you can, Norma's diet cooking and Delia's shape-up exercises are ......'
'I'm good. Maybe Delia will say yes.'
'Thank you very much!
Molly begged desperately, bowing to Norma, who had peeked out from behind Jeannette.
She's in dire straits.
And here's another one in dire straits: ......
'Oh, Aashi too!
Barbara slams the table and stands up, appealing in a devilish voice.
'Aashi, please clean up!
...... Barbara. Nice try.
Subtle, regrettable, and very stupid, as always.
