49 Towards a Solid Preparation
Morning came, or rather, it was already noon.
Relieving the pain in my head with a Detox potion, I descended into the living room.
Thinking about having a cup of coffee, I turned to the kitchen, and there I found Yukari dressed in ‘maid clothes’, preparing lunch.
“Good morning, Master.”
After noticing my presence, Yukari greeted me along with a beautiful bow.
After returning my greeting, she just said “Please wait a little longer”, and returned to what she was doing.
……I wonder why? She totally looks the part. And since her maid figure is working at the cutting board, she doesn’t look out of place at all. But, why maid clothes? Isn’t that weird? That’s weird, right?
“――Wha!? Now you’ve done it Yukari! “
Silvia, who had woken up a little later, yelled while pointing at Yukari. What has she done?
“I’ll be the winner.”
Yukari answered without even sparing a glance. With a face of frustration, Silvia puffed her cheeks.
“Ah! Second! There was this big fruit outside, and it looked really really tasty and it was like this big, and very high too!! “
“Alright, alright, calm down first! “
Eko, who seemed to have been playing outside, came back and while her tail was waving, she spoke without making a pause. Even so, she sure is energetic.
“A fruit! A huuuge fruit! Fruit! “
“Fruit……? Ahh! A coconut?”
“Coco nut! “
“You can eat what’s inside. But, it’s incredibly hard.”
As I told her that, her eyes were shining as she said “Ohhhh”. I’ll break one for her later.
“Lunch is ready now.”
With Yukari’s voice as the signal, we gathered in the living room and took a seat.
On the table, delicious dishes such as sandwiches and salads were lined up. Light shone through the large windows, and the cool breeze of the garden and pool came through the terrace. The large living room and high ceiling really gave off a sense of freedom. Next to me is a Dark Elf maid with a nice body, opposite to her is a dignified beauty of platinum blonde hair, and next to her, a lovely cat girl.
I’ve won. I’ve really won.
I’m already a winner even without being the top in the world.
Well, I’ll still get the top of the world spot though.
After lunch, I heard the details of a matter regarding Yukari while drinking coffee.
I see, I see, so apparently, the late Duchess Lucia Icene wants me to do something.
“However, why did Phillip decide it was okay to hand it over at this time, Master? “
“About that. He was probably brainwashed.”
Yukari seemed to have instantly understood it. It is very strange that the head of a large company came this far just for a dark elf and a letter. However, everything makes sense if you think he was brainwashed by the Duchess.
Well then. With that being the case, I’m a bit anxious about the contents of the letter.
