Chapter 53 is ready….It would have been ready earlier, but the last part of this chap was damn confusing, so it took me a while to figure it out. xD
Chapter 53: The Nightmare Weapon’s Revival
Bea made breakfast………
After hearing such a hopeless notice, I couldn’t stop from asking.
“Idiot, so you watched silently without doing anything to stop her? Couldn’t you just cause an ‘accident’ to ruin the food, or something?”
With an admiring expression, the black knight answered.
“Zest-sama, is just that lately, Beatrice-sama has become more sociable.”
With teary eyes, he continued.
“Such a lovely Beatrice-sama was doing her best to make the breakfast, I just couldn’t stop her!”
“………….I wish you the very best of luck.”
I shook his hand and silently entered the room.
“Morning Bea, it’s a great morning, isn’t it?”
“Good morning Zest-sama. Yes, it’s a wonderful morning.”
I cast some healing magic on my trembling feet as I tried to sit down on my chair.
“I made the breakfast today.”
Bea was showing an expression like she was begging for me to praise her.
Clad in strengthening magic, I tried to control my trembling while brushing her hair lightly.
“It smells delicious, Bea. However, didn’t you promise me you won’t cook again because it’s dangerous?”
“Haha. Since then, I did a lot of practice, so as not to worry Zest-sama anymore.”
Her smile was sparkling.
It can’t be helped.
Such a beautiful girl cooked for me…………
I have no choice but to eat it.
Toto, you can’t say anything else…….I looked at her with a serious expression and she seemed to understand.
“Go ahead and eat.”
As for our breakfast, it contained bread, soup, salad and some dark liquid for drinking.
The outward appearance was pretty ordinary; there was nothing strange about it.
Timidly, I took a mouthful of soup.
!?The soup was a success!
I’m sure the maids helped her!
So, the first one was safe…..Toto was gulping repetitively as well.
Then, what about the bread? I took a bite.
This was a success too!
Such good fortune…..There are only two left…..
Eagerly, I started tasting the salad.
“It’s fresh and tasty……”
How can this be?………At last, only the dangerously looking ‘something’ was left………..
I glanced at Toto, but she was not approaching the black liquid.
I get it.
If I drink this, everything will be settled peacefully…..
I prepared myself for the worst, and took a sip from the dark liquid!
Yes, it was actually coffee.
“Haha, in Japan, people often drink this, right? I looked up in an old book, and it was written there.”
Smiling, she was eating her breakfast.
“My cooking skills were very bad, so Zest-sama was worried about me, am I right?”
Bea was smiling kindly and I couldn’t reply to her.
“I knew it actually, that Zest-sama was being silent about it out of kindness. But still, I wanted to cook for you, so I kept on practicing…….on my grandfather.”
…………..Frontier Count, are you still alive?
“But since my grandfather is a busy man, he changed places with the black knights after a while……….”
That old geezer Frontier Count, he ran away.
“Thanks to them, I’ve become rather skillful, haven’t I, Zest-sama?”
Really now, this girl is…….
She’s really, really kind.
Because of the dark attribute’s influence, she went through a lot of terrible and painful situations.
And yet, she’s such a kind girl.
I hugged her softly.
“Bea, thank you so much. Truly……”
I gazed at her firmly for a while, and before one knows, I kissed her…….
“Thank you for the meal.”
(Thank you for the meal.)
“You are very welcome.”
The food Bea prepared for us was in fact delicious.
We ate up everything and drank coffee after.
“Still, I really didn’t know there was coffee in this world. When did you buy it?”
I was in a great mood after drinking coffee again in such a long time, so, with a smile on my face, I asked her.
Having done so, with a smile on her face, Bea answered me.
“I didn’t buy it. It actually comes from Toto-chan’s bottom.”
…………..This is kopi luwak coffee. (2)
While thinking that this was indeed kopi luwak coffee, I drank it all up.
Takkurun-san’s note: Unfortunately, kopi luwak coffee, made of the excrements of the so-called civet cat, actually exists.
(1) Itadakimasu – a Japanese expression of gratitude said before a meal. It literally means ‘I humbly accept this food’.
(2) Kopi luwak is the name of a type of coffee beans. They kinda have a controversial story, so if you’re interested, cheek this link: https://www.theguardian.com/sustainable-business/2014/sep/19/civet-cat-coffee-worlds-most-expensive-brew-made-sustainably-kopi-luwak
And yeah, it is poop. ><
