A Banquet with this Devil Count!

Near the entrance to the town of Axel, Megumin and Aqua looked up at us as we boarded the carriage that Darkness hastily prepared.
Since the two of them are staying in the city, they’ve come to see Darkness and me off while we made our final preparations for the journey.
“You can cast Create Water, so water isn’t an issue, but have you brought enough food with you? What about handkerchiefs and tissues? Hey, Kazuma, do you know how to set up a tent? I’ve heard that some people won’t be able to sleep if they suddenly change pillows, so maybe it’s best that you bring it along with you?”
“What are you, my mother? You don’t have to worry about us. We’re veteran adventurers, you know? Our levels are pretty high right now. Plus, it’s not that harsh of a journey, so you really don’t have to worry so much. Oh, and I don’t need a pillow.”
Aqua nagged at me like a mother fussing over her son.
“I can’t help it. I won’t be going with you this time, so take care. If you get killed by a monster, I won’t be able to resurrect you. Don’t pick up and eat anything strange you find, okay?”

A gesture of love for this orphanage!

Thanks to the events that took place last night, I ended up tossing and turning without getting even a wink of sleep.
“G-good morning, Kazuma. You sure are early today.”
I went to the kitchen to have breakfast only to meet a similarly sleep-deprived Darkness who gave me a lackluster greeting.
“I’m not up early. I just couldn’t sleep thanks to what you did last night. Why do you and Megumin keep teasing a teenage boy like me? Raising my hopes only to leave me hanging. Do you actually like me or do you just find it amusing to see me suffer?”
“Th-That’s… N-No, nevermind. What happened last night was my fault. I wasn’t thinking straight. To think that I had to be comforted by a girl that’s younger than me… I really failed as a noble… Please forget about what happened last night.”
Saying that, she regretfully lowered her head.
“How could I ever forget that? Not only was I handcuffed to an older noble lady, I got stripped half-naked and even got my first kiss forcibly stolen. That doesn’t exactly happen often, you know?”

Bringing these feelings to a close!

A constant clacking noise filled my ears.
As clumsy as Darkness is, she usually elegantly eats her meals without making a sound.
I don’t know if it’s because Darkness is nervous or something else, but she was being uncharacteristically noisy with her cutlery.
Currently, we are in the middle of dinner.
“Kazuma-san, could you pass the soy sauce?”
I picked up the bottle with my left hand and was about to pass it to Aqua when…
Darkness’ cry reminded me that my left hand was still chained to her right.
When I passed the soy sauce over to Aqua, Darkness’s hand was also dragged along with mine.

Granting despair for these Upstarts!

“Give him back! The Schneider that I carefully groomed and raised… return him to me, you shitty NEET!!”
“I made it back to where you were before, so give it a rest already! I can’t help it if he’s dead! Schneider has gone to another world and is doing just fine. Who knows, he might even have defeated the Demon King and be having a parade thrown in his honour right now.”
The next morning.
As expected, Aqua started screaming at me in the main hall where we usually relaxed, upset over losing her carefully groomed character. And thus began yet another day.

Putting this sickly illegitimate child at ease!

With the air of someone who’s been given a very important mission, Aqua said.
“I have to tell everyone… I need to let everyone in the guild know…”
“W-Wait, Aqua, hold on a minute! Let me explain!”
Darkness has a daughter.
“First I should report to the guild lady, then I need to go to the people in Axis Cult, then I’ll visit the grocer, the butcher, the old lady next door…”
“Aqua! Don’t jump to conclusions! Would you take a closer look at this kid first!?!”
