After Noir’s introduction finished, Noel continued to introduce by pushing the two who lined up next to her.
“Sirius-sama, the two here are my younger sister, Nokia-chan and my younger brother, Alad. They worked in our restaurant.” (Noel)
“Hmm, I think it was more in the letter, right?” (Sirius)
“Other children are working somewhere else. They feel being spoiled if they remain here, so they left on their own.” (Noel)
“Do you mean the siblings that are younger than you? Well, anyway… nice to meet you, my name is Sirius.” (Sirius)
“I am Nokia, Onee-chan’s younger sister. You can call me whatever you like. And, you’re the important benefactor for Onee-chan, right? You can treat us in the same way.” (Nokia)
“U-uhmm. My name is Alad. I didn’t know that you are Dee-san’s Master, and I said rude things earlier.” (Alad)
Obviously I am younger than them, but from Dee and Noel’s manner, they seemed to decided to do the same. I think it is good to be respected by Alad, and as for Nokia, she is more natural about it.
“Is that so? Then, I’ll just talk as usual. I am a commoner since couple of years already but I am more or less Dee’s and Noel’s master. And these guys next to me are…” (Sirius)
After me, I introduced my disciples in turns. Thanks to them for helping by becoming waiters, the valuation from Nokia and Alad don’t seems to be bad.
When I brought in Hokuto who was waiting outside and introduced him, Noel’s whole family opened their mouths wide as I expected. Among them, only Noel and Noir had their eyes glittering, they bumped into Hokuto’s body to enjoy the feel of the fur.
“It’s a doggy! Okaa-san, it’s a doggy!” (Noir) (TLN: Doggy in the raw is Wan-chan, Wan is onomatopoeia for dogs.)
“You can’t, Noir-chan. His name is Hokuto, so you have to call the name properly. Nevertheless, it’s amazingly pleasant fur to touch. It’s a fitting Beast Companion for Sirius-sama, right?” (Noel)
“Yeah. Hokuto-chan, it feels good!” (Noir)
It was sight that made you believe that Noir is definitely Noel’s daughter. Though the mother and the daughter are extremely fearless, where is Dee’s gene? Is Noel’s gene too strong?
After the introduction finished with this and that, everyone’s reaching out the cooking pot that I prepared. As a recipe that I taught, there were plenty of ingredients available, so it became a little extravagant hot pot dish.
The disciples were smacking their lips at the hot pot dish they hadn’t had after long time since we went out for the travel, and it seemed their chopsticks were extended further than usual probably because we were eating with large household.
On the other hand, the reaction from Noel’s family was…
“Yeah… it’s delicious as I expected. And I really miss it.” (Noel)
“…I also still have more way to go.” (Dee)
“Delicious. Even though you use almost the same ingredients, what is this deep taste?” (Nokia)
“Uhh… it made me feel frustrated, but Onee-chan was right. I can’t stop my hands.” (Alad)
Their reaction were the best above all. However, as everyone reached out to the pot one after another, there was a child with pale reaction.
“What is it, Noir-chan? Don’t you like Nabe?” (Noel)
“…I like it.” (Noir)
“Otou-san will get it. Look, the vegetables and meat are also cooked well, isn’t it good?” (Dee)
Noel and Dee took care of her diligently, but Noir’s eating progress was slow for some reason.
Did the taste doesn’t fit her? However, judging from her look, it wasn’t because of that… Maybe because of cat tongue?
While I was wondering, my two gluttons disciples were imposing, and Nokia seemed embarrassed and handed over the plates.
“I want more, Aniki!” (Reus)
“Sirius-san, aren’t there more ingredients?” (Reese)
“M-me too!” (Emilia)
“…It seems better to buy a little more tomorrow, isn’t it?” (Dee)
“Sorry. I will get the money, so I would like you to buy for more than ten people.” (Sirius)
(Thank you for reading at bayabuscotranslation.com)
While I felt sorry about my gluttons disciples, I put vegetables and meat into the hot pot again. By the way, I put the rice in and made porridge with vegetables, but it goes without saying that it was eaten up in an instant.
Since I couldn’t prepare dessert today, Dee prepared light snacks and drinks from the kitchen. While eating them, we continued chatting to fill the time when we didn’t meet.
The focus of the talk was mainly about our school life, but since the disciples were role-playing the events that happened there, the Noel family was being absorbed and listening.
“Then, when we thought that there was no more hope… Aniki pushed through the wall and came to help. The appearance of Aniki at that time was… the best!” (Reus)
“Yeah. Sirius-sama’s back at that time was really shining. Even if I recall it until now, it makes me fall in love again.” (Emilia)
“Kuhh… as expected of Sirius-sama. It was an appearance in the best delicious scene! Emi-chan is already fallen, so Reese-chan too has fallen.” (Noel)
“No, it wasn’t like that for me at that time…” (Reese)
“Ooh? I definitely want to hear the story.” (Noel)
“The feasts are good, but isn’t better to finish soon? There is tomorrow, right?” (Sirius)
Looking outside, it’s already late and night and the whole town already went to sleep except some. It’s fine for Noel and Dee because they were at home, but Nokia and Alad had to go back to their parent’s house which was nearby, so we should finished here at once.
“It can’t be helped then. Since you guys will be here later, let us sleep in the same room.” (Noel)
“The chairs over there are enough for us. In worst case, I think we can go for a lodging.” (Sirius)
“That’s absolutely no good! Sirius-sama will stay in the guest room, Reus-kun will stay together with my dear, and all the girls will stay in my room even though it’s a bit cramped. Please be assured because we have bought several blankets for this day.” (Noel)
Am I staying at the guest room alone by myself? That was a little bit of preferential treatment to me, so I also invited Reus and Emilia to the guest room, but it seemed it had been decided because there was something that they want to talk between the attendants.
We decided to continue again tomorrow. While Reus escorted Nokia and Alad back home, I decided to go to bed after cleaning my body.
As a side story, before parting with Nokia after she made Noir went to sleep, I asked about the matter we had been talked about.
“Well… Noel. What on earth was that prank?” (Sirius)
“Eh? What are you talking about?” (Noel) (TLN: The second question is in katakana)
While sweating, she pretended not knowing about the matter of being a poster girl, but as for me, it was not so. I repeatedly questioned her several times while persistently staring at her. Finally, she admitted it and told the details.
“You see, I merely drove away the customers by doing pranks with magic. It got over my head when they said that the foods were not good. And then, the popularity became good for the customers in general… so I thought whether I shall make it slightly funny…” (Noel)
So, she made that intimidating appearance with that props just because of that? It seems like a side show, but it is not very good in this world.
“Dee didn’t stop it… No, he would stop it.” (Sirius)
“Yes. But, I would do it if that makes the shop thrives. However, I can’t strongly stop thinking about his feeling…” (Noel)
“I told you many times to stop it because it was dangerous.” (Sirius)
“Since I can’t help much with cooking, I thought I should do this much. Aah, the customers rarely complain about it, and it’s been only twice.” (Noel)
“It is not a problem with the number of times!” (Sirius)
I grabbed Noel’s face and make she ate Iron Claw after a long absence. Unlike in the olden days, my height is overtaking hers, so it’s easy to grasp Noel’s small face easily. When I loaded grip strength, Noel suffered in agony just like before.
“Ouch! Th-this is really nostalgic! Somehow, it is stronger than before!” (Noel)
“I understand that you want to be helpful, but what are you going to do if the opponent is stronger than you!?” (Sirius)
“B-but… For this store, I would…” (Noel)
“And what will you do if you get hurt!?” (Sirius)
“It looks like I’m getting injured nowwww! I’m sorryyyy!” (Noel)
Rather than releasing because of her self-reflection, I planned to warn Noel and put my hand on her while she sat exhaustedly on a chair.
“Listen, if you are injured, Dee and Noir will be sad. Since I don’t like that to happen, please discuss with the town guards and come up with measures.” (Sirius)
“Uuu… you’re making a troubled face, Sirius-sama. I will not let my Master worry anymore, so I will stop doing that from today.” (Noel)
If I persuade her strongly, she will diligently listen. The reason why she didn’t listen to Dee and Nokia was that she prioritized her responsibility to hype the store. Besides, those two are very lenient to Noel no matter what she does, and in the end, they probably will allow her conduct.
Therefore, I clearly scold her that she must not do that, and then made a troubled face to make her felt guilty. She is a person who get carried away easily, but I thought she would snap since she is a gentle girl.
“You’re lying!? I heard what Aneki said!” (Alad)
“To make Onee-chan to listen obediently… He’s really the person that Dee-san respects.” (Nokia)
After Alad, Nokia also began to look with respect. Oi Noel, what kind of view that your family has on you?
(Thank you for reading at bayabuscotranslation.com)
Early in the morning of the next day, I woke up in a small but satisfactory guest room. When I looked at the height of the day, it seemed that I woke up with a noise coming from the kitchen which was a little earlier than usual.
When I left the room and went to the kitchen, Dee and Alad had already begun the preparation. As I expected, it is early in the morning for a restaurant.
From the talk that I heard yesterday, [Erina’s Dining Room] sells sandwiches and light meals that can be carried around in the morning, and opens as a typical dining room from noon. Those two made sandwiches and light meals while moving around the kitchen. When I peeked into the kitchen, they stopped what they were doing when they noticed me and gave greetings.
“Good morning, Sirius-sama.” (Dee)
“”ood morning! Could we by any chance wake you up?” (Alad)
“You don’t have to worry because I always wake up at this time around. By the way, do you need a hand?” (Sirius)
“No, we are fine. This is our usual things to do. Would you like to have breakfast?” (Dee)
“I would like to have it after morning exercise.” (Sirius)
After telling them about breakfast, I went outside to a well to wash my face. When I reached out to get the towel that was placed nearby, Emilia, who got up at the same time with me, handed it immediately. Reus and Reese were also stood behind, while Hokuto was waiting with swinging tail.
All members have gathered, so shall we also go out for today?
“Alright, today we are training stealthy steps around the town.” (Sirius)
During our time in the Diamond Cottage, we had no issue since we were running through the mountains, but here is in the early morning of the town. If we run all out, we will make a noise. While diminishing the sound of the footsteps as much as possible, we started running slower than usual.
For us, this was a training but for Hokuto, it was a stroll with his master, so he ran happily beside me while wagging his tail.
After we went through several rounds of the town and finished warming up, we came to the square behind the [Erina’s Dining Room]. There were various places when we ran around, but now, it was a desolate place with overgrown weed.
It seemed that the place was owned by a noble who managed the town, but they won’t blame us to enter this place on our own because that noble is a fan of Dee’s dishes. To begin with, the dining room was built here in a strategic place which was not far from the town’s center, and it was to please and serve dishes to that noble.
In the present time, the place is left idle, but I am grateful since there is a place where we can train without reservation. As we finished our daily routine, I thought about seeing Emilia’s knife technique today, but I remembered when looking at Hokuto who was waiting while wagging his tail.
“That reminds me… I haven’t play Frisbee with Hokuto yet.” (Sirius)
His name was different from the current one, but Hokuto had played many times in the previous life. Especially, he thought that Frisbee was his favorite and it had a technology that can aim the world.
I couldn’t do this in front of mother’s grave. Later, I made a new Frisbee with much effort, and this might be a good opportunity to try it. When I thought Hokuto could do it until anywhere as long as he has current ability, the appearance of him who was next to me disappeared unnoticed. At the same time, there were no figure of Emilia and Reus, and the remaining Reese was staring at me with a bitter smile.
“Eh, where are those guys?” (Sirius)
“Sirius-san, didn’t you mutter Frisbee earlier? The moment they heard that…
Before Rees finished talking, two people and an animal were running while raising up cloud of dust, they stopped in front of me and formed a line. And then, Emilia handed over the big handmade Frisbee for Hokuto in her hands with glittering eyes.
“Please, Sirius-sama!” (Emilia)
“Aniki, quickly!” (Reus)
These two people and an animal… No, aren’t they three animals already? The movements of the three tails were synchronized, and there was no need to say anything else. Let’s treat them as good as I can.
“I can’t be their opponents, so I’ll step down.” (Reese)
“That seems better.” (Sirius)
Judging by Hokuto’s and the siblings’ capability, they would complain if I throw lightly. Because of that, when I threw until my wrist became blurred while using [Boost], those three rushed like a rocket start.
As the Frisbee flew far above, Emilia rushed through while creating tailwind with magic, Reus ran on the ground with [Boost], and Hokuto ran with his proud legs.
To get the better even after only several seconds of the match… as I expected of Hokuto.
The speed of Hokuto made the siblings left behind, he caught the dropped Frisbee easily with his mouth. It can’t be helped since there are differences between quadrupled and bipedal movements, and the difference in physical abilities between a wolf and a human.
Hokuto came back to me while sidelong glancing the frustrated two. When I stroke his head after receiving the Frisbee, he was pleased wagging his tail around while sounding a throat.
“Alright, good job Hokuto. But isn’t that a bit immature?” (Sirius)
No matter how you look at it, there is too much difference in abilities. That’s why I told him to go easy a bit on them, but Hokuto was shaking his head as if saying that he couldn’t do it.
“Hokuto was right, Aniki! This is already a battle!” (Reus)
“Pity is unnecessary. We will defeat Hokuto with our ability and have Sirius-sama pat us!” (Emilia)
Taking the challenge means they understood what Hokuto was saying.
As for these three, it’s not a play anymore. It’s a battle for the Frisbee.
Due to the difference in ability, Hokuto’s victory is already decided. So, instead of going easy on them, he decided to impose a handicap on himself. Though the battle continued with the siblings interfered him and making his starting location way behind, Hokuto outran everything and grasped the victory… and it kept going on.
This was a strange circumstances but I didn’t feel like stopping since this was also a training for the siblings. When I stroke Hokuto for the tenth times, the siblings got together and had a strategy meeting.
“Huuu… As expected of Hokuto-san, he’s tough. Even if we try to interfere, he can avoid them all and grabs it first.” (Emilia)
“If that’s the case, let’s do that, Nee-chan.” (Reus)
“But you can’t get it with that.” (Emilia)
“It’s alright. Now, I just want to win against Hokuto-san!” (Reus)
After the strategy meeting, the determined siblings, were waiting for my throw with a tense look.
And then, Emilia and Reus chased after the Frisbee that I threw, but Hokuto was drawing closer from behind. Hokuto wasn’t losing even though the siblings getting a handicap of distance. However, they lost many times due to high jumping power of Hokuto.
When I look on how they could make that up, Emilia was slowing down a bit while Reus suddenly looked back, piled both hands and held it to the front. Emilia put her feet on the piled hands, they took a synchronized breath and…
“Nee-chan, go!” (Reus)
At the same time Reus threw Emilia, she jumped high by using wind magic.
The jump where the siblings work together was higher than Hokuto’s, and Emilia caught the Frisbee before it started to fall.
“I got it!” (Emilia)
“That’s amazing, Emilia! But, what about the landing!?” (Reese)
Reese was worried, but Emilia would be able to land well with wind magic. However, when I looked, it seemed she was too excited because she was finally able to catch it until she forget to think about the landing .
In any case, I was prepared to jump out anytime but Hokuto jumped and rescued Emilia by grabbing her collar with his mouth. Hmm, he’s doing good job as usual.
After Hokuto rescued Emilia, he landed without sound, he walked in front of me while grabbing her and dropped her off. It looked like Hokuto was praising the siblings for giving good fight.
“Hokuto-san, thank you very much. Sirius-sama, I finally did it!” (Emilia)
“Aah, good job.” (Sirius)
She raised the Frisbee as if she took the world gold medal, so I patted her more than usual. She wagged her tail more probably because she could never win until a while ago and finally got a pat. She was immersed in happiness and made an ecstatic face.
“Aah… this is a ‘Pat of Victory’. So sweet…” (Emilia)
“So nice…” (Reus)
“What are you envying, Reus also, come here.” (Sirius)
The winner this time is not only Emilia who grabbed the Frisbee, but also Reus. Even if you want to win on your own, seizing the victory by cooperating when facing powerful opponent is a worth to be praised.
Because of that, when I called Reus and patted him, he was laughing in satisfaction after having a hard time.
“Hehe…a pat at last.” (Reus)
With that, today’s Frisbee play was over.
It will be the time for breakfast soon. After that, we plan to go and greet Noel’s mother.
Even if Noel is someone who easily flattered, I was taken good care by her when I was a baby. Therefore, I plan to thank her mother properly. According to Noel, it seemed her mother also wanted to see me, so I have to show my face soon.
I had to bring back those three who were sad because Frisbee time had ended, and returned to the [Erina’s Dining Room].
(Thank you for reading at bayabuscotranslation.com)
We gathered in the living room which is the staying area of [Erina’s Dining Room], and we were having breakfast.
Today’s breakfast was Dee’s homemade French Toast. Besides that, salads and soups were also lined up on the table, it was a considerable sized of breakfast. We immediately eat the French Toast, and it was obviously more delicious than before.
“Yeah, it’s delicious. It is nicely well cook, Dee.” (Sirius)
“Thank you very much.” (Dee)
“I miss this taste. This soup also has the same taste that I ate at that time…” (Emilia)
“It’s delicious! Dee-nii, your skill has improved again!” (Reus)
“Of course, Reus-kun! My husband is working hard, you know. What about Reese-chan?” (Noel)
“Yes, it is delicious. By the way…” (Reese)
Noel was so proud, rather than the person himself. Meanwhile, Reese was eating one after another with a smile, and stop eating when her plate was empty. When she looked up, not feeling enough, Dee gave her more quickly.
“Aah… err…” (Reese)
“You don’t need to hold back. You should eat as much as you want.” (Dee)
“That’s right, Reese-chan. We are also happy when you enjoy eating that much. Feel free to tell us if you want to eat more.” (Noel)
“Thank you very much. Alright… I would like two more, please.” (Reese)
“Me too, another please!” (Reus)
“Aah, I’m going to make it soon, so please wait.” (Dee)
Dee went back and forth between the kitchen and the living room to prepare for the toast. I also tried to help, but Dee told me to enjoy remembering the olden days, and he refused my help. Dee did this and that on his own and he absolutely didn’t want any help. It was like this when we were at the mansion.
While the two gluttons in the house ate toasts that were prepared one after another, I noticed that Noir, who sat on the farthest seat from me, was watching here. When our eyes met, she immediately looked away and ate a toast. Was it my imagination that she seemed to be slightly in a bad mood?
“What is it, Noir-chan? You usually eat more, but you eat slower today.” (Noel)
“Does it not suit your taste?” (Dee)
“That’s not it! Otou-san’s toast is really delicious.” (Noir)
“Huhu. Of course, it’s Otou-san’s dish. But you know, Sirius-sama was the one who made this French Toast for the first time. Besides, he also taught Otou-san other dishes.” (Noel)
“…Is that so?” (Noir)
“That’s right. That’s why, when Noir-chan also grows up, to become Sirius-sama’s attendant is…” (Noel)
“Thanks for the meal.” (Noir)
Even though the talk was interrupted, it was Noel who wanted her daughter to become my attendant. And the subject of the discussion, Noir, left his seat in the middle of it and went outside.
From the state of Noel and Dee who were watching dumbfoundedly, the current behavior was a very unusual behavior.
“I-I’m sorry Sirius-sama. Noir-chan was impolite.” (Noel)
“She is usually gentle and good kid, but to run away like that…” (Dee)
“Hmm, anyway, both of you, go and chase after Noir. I don’t mind about it, so don’t be angry to her.” (Sirius)
“Yes, please excuse us.” (Dee)
When those two went out of the living room to chase Noir, Alad, who had been preparing the more foods in the kitchen, and Nokia, who came in from his parents house, appeared. These two looked puzzled when the home owner was not here. They looked more puzzled when I explained the situation.
“It’s unusual for Noir to run away.” (Nokia?)
“That’s true. She is a good child who properly carries the dishes after finished eating, so why this?” (Alad?)
“Maybe it is because of us? Leaving that matter aside, rather than Alad, Nokia is here early, huh. Aren’t you going to work from noon?” (Sirius)
“That’s true, but I have something for Sirius-san. Though it is sudden, is this time alright?” (Nokia)
Nokia lowered her head and she seemed sorry, but the plan at the moment was to meet their mother. When I said that I had no problem with this time, Nokia was relieved and looked towards the interior of the store.
“The truth is… our Okaa-san is coming to the store. And she said she wanted to talk to Sirius only.” (Nokia)
“Only me?” (Sirius)
“Yes. She will greet the rest later, but first she would like to talk with Sirius-sama about an important matter.” (Nokia)
“Hmmm… I have no problem since I planned to say hello. On the contrary, I apologize for having you to come here.” (Sirius)
“No, I do it voluntarily for Okaa-san.” (Nokia)
As I expected of my disciples, they watched me and didn’t worry about it since it’s a matter regarding Noel’s family.
When she entered the store, a short brown hair woman was sitting on a chair prepared for a table. I know that she is a person who has considerable muscle from the thickness of her arm, a good build compared to ordinary woman.
When that woman noticed me, she made a carefree smile while stirring the same cat ears as Noel’s. The words that suits to describe her was gutsy mother or an elder sister.
“Are you Sirius-kun?” (??)
“Yes, I am Sirius. Are you Noel’s mother?” (Sirius)
“Aah, that’s right. Anyway, sit down here. And also, I prohibit honorific. Just talk as usual.” (??)
Although the behavior was rough, it didn’t make me feel uncomfortable because it was a plain way of speaking. I wonder how did Noel told about me, but first I should sit on a chair and introduce myself.
When I took the seat, Noel’s mother picked the water jug on the table, poured the water into a cup and put it in front of me. It was said that this was an important talk, but I was served with just a regular water and not a tea. Should this be said as too proper or daring?
Whatever it is, I am more comfortable like this rather than being formal, so I don’t mind.
“Anyhow, nice to meet you. I am Noel’s mother, Stella. Call me appropriately.” (Stella)
“Well then, I’ll call you Stella-san. As you may already know, my name is Sirius.” (Sirius)
“Aah, I have heard it many times from Noel. It seems my idiot daughter has been totally indebted to you.” (Stella)
Stella-san said herself that her daughter is n idiot, and she looked through a window while smiling gently.
Her mouth was bad, but there was no mistake that this person was a mother that worried about her child. There is no need for underhanded tricks, and it is better to talk unreservedly.
“I won’t deny that she is an idiot, and I certainly took care of her too. But I learned many things from Noel.” (Sirius)
“Hahaha, she is such an idiot daughter, but I’m happy if she could help you.” (Stella)
“Please don’t say too much of idiot. Isn’t that something a splendid mother does?” (Sirius)
“Yeah, she is an idiot girl. Even so, it makes me happier.” (Stella)
After that, she started to tell old stories that almost sound like complaining.
Stella-san is a woman who works in public works of Aurum, and mainly on labor work. Stella has seven children, and Noel is the oldest among them.
She lost a husband and raised the children alone, but it seemed she went through a harsh life and she couldn’t work well. It continued for several years, and on a day when they still couldn’t eat enough, Noel seemed to leave the house suddenly in order to reduce the food cost even if it’s a little bit.
“She’s really an idiot girl. The situation of getting better by reducing a single person also didn’t happen. She left the house because of worrying pointless thing. And then, she became an attendant for a noble. When the letter came, she came back with a marriage partner. That made me worried as a parent, but now it is indescribable for that idiot to have the happiness.” (Stella)
“I definitely would like to say so. But, is she helping out by now?” (Sirius)
“It is frustrating, but that’s true. She gave other daughters and sons stable jobs, and brought them a husband who could make delicious meals. We became really comfortable, thanks to her for coming back home.” (Stella)
Then, she drank her water once, and looked at me after pouring the water again.
Her face and personality are completely different from mother, but the warmth that I feel is exactly the same as mother.
“When I heard she became a slave for once, I felt like hitting her unconsciously. Hey, did you see this… well. But I also heard that that idiot girl was picked up and raised by a benefactor.” (Stella)
“That was… my mother.” (Sirius)
“Yeah. I wanted to thank that person, but she seemed already passed away. I thought of whom I should thank… and I finally got someone to tell that.” (Stella)
The reason to call me out alone was that she probably wanted to tell me sincerely without being disturbed by anyone. At that seriousness, I couldn’t say that I should not received the gratitude.
“…Understood. On behalf of my mother, I will accept it.” (Sirius)
“‘If it is a son of that person, please do not hesitate to accept him’. Thank you so much… for saving my child.” (Stella)
Together with the earnest words of gratitude, Stella got off the chair and knelt down on the floor. Stella raised her face that looked embarrassed but refreshed. She sat back on the chair and drank the water again.
“Well… that was an embarrassing appearance. I can’t show it to that girl.” (Stella)
“No, you don’t need to be embarrassed about the behavior of a mother who think of her children.” (Sirius)
“Is that so? Oh, of course there are also shares of gratitude for Sirius. Did you train that girl? And didn’t you have a hard time?” (Stella)
“…More or less.” (Sirius)
“Yeah, that’s right. I like when you are being honest. Nevertheless, that girl was picked up by a really good master!” (Stella)
Stella-san smiled graciously and shouted loudly after looking at the store’s interior. Yeah, did you notice it after all?
“Don’t you think so, Noel? You guys, don’t hide and come out!” (Stella)
“Muuu… we’ve been found out. By the way Okaa-san, Sirius is definitely a good master! Though he sometimes does painful things…” (Noel)
Noel and the disciples who peeked from the interior came out while exchanging glances with us apologetically. Noel and Noir did it openly, so it meant that they displayed various meanings.
“It is not good for you not to have a slightly painful experience. By the way, are those children at the back Sirius’s friends? Introduce them.” (Stella)
“Alright. These children are my juniors at work that I treat them as brother and sister. Ah, although Reese-chan is a sister, she is not an attendant.” (Noel)
“Am I also a sister?” (Reese)
“Oh you! How am I suppose to introduce you? Besides, I don’t say the essential name, right? Come, you don’t have to stay behind.” (Noel)
Noel’s head was hit slightly, and she was drove off as soon as she dropped. As expected of a mother, she knows how to handle Noel well.
(Thank you for reading at bayabuscotranslation.com)
After the introduction of the disciples finished, Stella-san stroked affectionately every one of them.
“Emilia, Reus, and Reese. Those are good names. Unlike the girls in my family, these children seem to be smart.” (Stella)
“There is no such thing. Onee-chan saved us.” (Emilia)
“Yeah. Noel-nee always played with us.” (Reus)
“Though I haven’t known her for long time, she is very lively and splendid person who pleases the surroundings.” (Reese)
“Hee… they are giving good compliments. She is different, after all.” (Stella)
“Uhmm, Okaa-san! This is the place to be deeply moved! It is also the place to praise your splendid daughter!” (Noel)
Noel turned while being angry, but Stella pinned her down with one hand and just laughed.
While displaying such intimate scene, Dee prepared drinks for everyone and put it on a table. Since we were all here together, we decided to discuss the plan.
And Noel, who was dealt nicely by Stella-san, interrupted the discussion while breathing roughly. If you are tired, you can take a break, and this doesn’t concern you anyway.
“Hu… hu… So, how long Siriu-sama stays here?” (Noel)
“I don’t have plan yet, but I don’t plan to stay long.” (Sirius)
“If that’s the case, one year… no, how about five years? Isn’t that easy?” (Noel)
Saying it to be easy… Moreover, what do you mean when you increase the number of years? She looked at Stella-san as if she wanted to do something, but she laughed it out and crossed her arms.
“Won’t that be nice? If you stay, I will build a house for you. I will make a splendid house for my daughter’s benefactor.” (Stella)
“… No, we planned in the beginning to stay only for half a month.” (Sirius)
These two are definitely a mother and a child.
Honestly, it felt long even if it’s half a month, but it seemed they would complaint if it’s a short stay. And, they might build a house if I stay long and that would make me difficult to leave for a trip.
“There is no other way. Let me convince you. Okaa-san, can you build a house in half a month?” (Noel)
“There is nothing I can’t do, but it will be no good with a digging hut. My pride won’t allow it.” (Stella)
They were thinking about it after all. Let’s appreciate Stella-san’s craftsmanship.
While we stay in Aurum, we were supposed to live in the [Erina’s Dining Room]. I think it would be difficult for them if the number is increased by four, but there are many things that we can do such as cooking and becoming a waiter. Since Noel’s family doesn’t mind about it, we can take care of it on our own.
But, only one person is excluded.
“Noir-chan, our family will become bigger for a while. Isn’t that great?” (Noel)
“Yeah… though she isn’t a child who shy in front of a stranger… What’s going on?” (Dee)
“I want you to know how wonderful is Sirius-sama is.” (Noel)
Noel and Dee were troubled while patting Noir’s head who was at slightly away place, but she nodded to consent when she looked at me.
“It’s Sirius-sama, you’ll get used to him after a while. You will eventually realized the splendor of Sirius-sama, and you yourself want to attend him.
“That’s right. Look, Noir. Otou-san has work to do, he will be back later.” (Noel)
She seemed to be displeased at us… no, I mean at me, but her smile when she was hugged by Dee was lovely.
My aims in the beginning is to get along with Noir before getting used to live here.
First, shall I lure her with cakes? Later, I borrowed the kitchen after getting permission from Dee.

I was planning to use this tactic next time.
“If it’s Noel’s child, she will surely respond to puddings and mayonnaise. Hey, come on over.” (Sirius)
“Get!” (Noel) (And she entered with head sliding.)
The mother got lured instead…
