Thank you Puppynado85 for the kofi! (11/32) done
Roasted venison marinated with all kinds of precious spices, pickled deer meat, stuffed and roasted goose, cabbage and boiled lamb, fried cod, fish pie, round bread stuffed with minced meat, and yak milk.….
“Why is there yak milk but no yak meat?”
…what kind of a carnivore are you? How can you look for more meat after eating all that meat?
The sky was so clear.
Lake Girello glittered in the golden sun, with the winds blowing gently, carrying along the scent of the forest, sparkling green leaves, and tall beautiful grass waving in the wind.
And I felt suffocated by the smell of the meat mountain on the table.
Outdoor meals were usually cooked in the mansion and served by servants.
It was like the Paladins’ custom to not move back and forth while eating their meals.
Of course, that couldn’t always be done, but sometimes they ate at a restaurant, and it was common for them to skip meals if they were busy.
Sometimes, people filled their stomachs in any cheap pub nearby, but they didn’t seem like nobles.
“What’s wrong with your tongue? Get a chef if you’re that desperate.”
“I get it, stop babbling and eat already.”
How could those people possibly eat in a cheap pub? I’d rather starve.
The long simple table was divided into two sections.
Some people knew my secret and some didn’t, but they didn’t seem to care much about me.
Andymion was not seen, probably eating separately from other trainees.
It felt like a poor prey surrounded by a group of wild wolves.
The poor prey being me. Haha.
“You don’t seem to have an appetite again.”
“No, it’s just…”
“The Archbishop must have given you something delicious.”
Are you being sarcastic? What the hell do you think I am, a person who eats everything someone gives me?
“Being a picky eater is not good.”
I thought he was being sarcastic about my visit to the Archbishop alone, but he remembered what I did the other day and judged me as a picky eater.
I was too shocked back then, you son of a b*tch!
I sipped my yak milk and glanced at my husband across from me. It was very intimidating to see what he had been doing all morning.
He looked like he had just slayed a dragon. But he was the main character and his beauty shone through. Oh my lord.
Perhaps because he sensed my gaze, Izek stopped mercilessly slaughtering the roast goose and looked at me.
“You’re so cool… Actually, Ellen told me about the banquet.”
I wanted to ask him what he was up to, but I couldn’t, so I added with a smile.
“If I knew more about what kind of banquet it is, I’ll help you with something…”
“It’s a banquet. A feast. What would you help with?”
Well, that’s reasonable. But you know what? Who wouldn’t think it was strange that you, no one else, but you, would throw a banquet out of the blue?
Please, it shouldn’t be a conspiracy to use me as a secret weapon.
Ahh, I don’t know.
Since this is happening, I’d rather take the opportunity to organize a conspiracy to gain his favour.
Yes, dressing up as sexily as I could and seducing him…… I don’t think that was quite right.
Trying to hide my dirty thoughts, I tried to munch on the pie filled with fish flesh.
Apparently the other paladins had almost finished all that food.
Izek seemed to eat a bit slowly, but he was at the same speed as lightning compared to me.
They must be monsters indeed. Well, it was not too bad to rush since they could be called out during the meal. A true noble’s ways.
“By the way, the numbers have dropped dramatically these days. I wish it were like this every day, except for the damn scraps….”
“It’s because of the ice dragon. That’s why everyone is hiding and taking care of themselves. They’re going to pour out again.”
Ugh. Whenever I heard about the dragon, I felt guilty.
As he glanced around, Izek seemed distracted by the deer meat.
Are you an animal?
“We should be like this until the end of the festival season. Hey Izek, are you going to attend this gladiatorial match?”
I knew I would. Because I did it in the original. And the flower of glory…
“Don’t talk to me while I’m eating.”
“What? I only asked once.”
“You don’t think you’re going to win this year, do you? You don’t want to be embarrassed in front of your wife, do you? Tsk, tsk, you ugly b*stard.”
“That’s right! It’s all luck that he won the match in the past. Don’t you think so?”
Why were they blowing off my husband’s temper lid again? Ah, bloody, too bloody.
“I mean, honestly, isn’t that all trash? What kind of joke….”
“I heard Cardinal Valentino is coming to this festival.”
Silence fell in an instant when someone said something.
The Paladin, who was wearing an eye patch, was the one who actually spoke in a strange and awkward silence, acting like someone had poured cold water on him. He was puzzled about the sudden silence.
“What, you guys didn’t know? It’s not like you’re stupid. Right, my lady?”
“I’ve heard that he will attend.” I was sweating as I tried to answer casually.
I really didn’t want to talk about my brother in front of my husband.
Why was everyone looking for Cesare today? I didn’t like it.
When Lorenzo sang such a song to me from the beginning, there was no way that they wouldn’t know about such a scandal of us siblings.
Even Izek would have heard of it at least once. Believe it or not. So, it bothered me more. I already had a bad reputation…
“That’s great. Please tell him to scold this son of a b*tch who thinks he’s the only good one.”
“Ahaha, but my husband is really good.”
There was a different kind of silence than before. Someone’s choking sounds faintly echoed.
Tsk tsk. This was why you shouldn’t talk about Cesare.
I could feel Izek staring at me, and so, I grinned, not forgetting my role as his fan.
What should I do? I pushed a piece of lamb mixed with cabbage into my mouth and mashed it with my teeth.
Let’s pretend to eat well. Ha, I’m going to have an upset stomach.
“How do you like the new maid?”
The lamb that I was chewing fell down my throat.
As I slowly opened my eyes, I could see Izek’s face, which was insensitivity itself.
“Yes, I love her. Thank you.”
“I’m glad she’s more useful than I thought.”
“Her hands are fast and she’s good.”
“Is there anything else you need?”
“Is there anything else you need? Anything you want.”
What was this question? A trap?
I hesitated for a moment, then decided to just follow my role. My eyes widened and I supported my chin with both hands.
Wind blew past.
Everyone at the table, including Izek, stared at me with a blank face. I gently lowered my hand and gulped down the remaining half of my yak milk.
Geh, I think that was a little too much. I didn’t know why I did that.….
“I-I’m off to work overtime.”
“Me too. I enjoyed the meal.”
“Then, next time, my lady..”
The Paladins, who left with their gauntlets, looked angry for some reason.
That left me alone with my cold husband. Save me!
“That seems to suit your taste the best.”
“Why don’t you drink this, too?”
I just drank it out of embarrassment.
With tears in my eyes, I chugged his yak milk. The froth was killing me.
“I guess it’s still hard to adapt to northern cuisine.”
“It’s not that I’m a picky eater.….”
“There’s no need to rush too much.”
Izek snapped his fingers. Soon after, the waiters who were waiting nearby, approached, cleaned up the dishes and leftovers, and brought dessert trays.
Chocolate mousse cake, chocolate macaron, chocolate cookies and giant chocolate cream pudding……why were they all full of chocolate?
“I didn’t know you liked chocolate.”
“I don’t eat anything but sacred chocolate.”
Sacred chocolate. What kind of Hershey’s chocolate was that?
“What does sacred chocolate taste like?”
“It tastes like mashed potatoes.”
“Do you like mashed potatoes?”
“In the middle of winter, we store it for a whole week. It’s not that bad.”
I asked him just to tease, but he was unexpectedly good-natured. What was wrong with him? I couldn’t get used to it.
I took a big bite of the chocolate pudding.
My stomach might be in pain, but I had to pretend to eat. Izek was watching me sipping tea, while I pushed the pudding into my mouth little by little.
His red eyes were almost a light pink because of the sun.
Why weren’t they prying for anything anymore? For example, what did I do with the monsters after running away from home, had I met with anyone, had I really not known about my condition, etc.
And about what I talked with the Archbishop earlier, about Cesare coming.
I thought there would be a lot of questions to ask, but he didn’t ask anything until now.
“The weather is so nice these days. I thought it was going to be chilly all the time.….”
“Everything is random here.”
Aha, is that so? But why do you look upset?
“B-By the way. That night, we.. No, we couldn’t…….”
“First get well, and then we’ll talk.”
He said haughtily, giving me a good scolding.
Was that the only excuse he had?
“But I’m all better now.”
“Don’t overdo it.”
“It’s not too much! I can literally fly around, do you want to see…”
I was just trying to prove how robust I was.
But maybe because I was a little too excited, I put down the spoon and jumped up. The table vibrated, the glass that Izek had just put down overflowed.
Alcohol splashed on the back of his hand.
