Chapter 12: A Strange colleague
I woke up from sleep because I was stimulated by smell.
It is a sweet scent.
It is not the strong sweetness of sugar, but the soft sweetness of milk.
I opened the eyes as if invited by the smell, the scenery opened.
No matter how many times I wake up from sleep, I think this moment is happy.
… I thought that I could not see it anymore.
My eyesight was lost in a previous battle. I still can’t believe it’s returned.
If you do not like it, you still think about it before you go to sleep every day,
what to do when you wake up tomorrow.
About that, the world I saw again was full of color and beauty.
And now, in this beautiful world, there is a beautiful silver color.
The silver poured into the tableware some liquid, and it was sticky when she scooped it with a spoon on the side.
“This is…” (Felnote)
“Oh, you’re awake.” (Arge)
A girl with a silver hair comes out from the kitchen.
What kind of relationship do we have, you ask?
Well, a girl who lived together with me for a while.
She has sparkling silver hair and eyes red like blood.
A beautiful girl who charms you just by looking at her, my benefactor who recovered my light.
She smiles with her red eyes in the shape of a bow and talks to me.
“Good morning, Felnote-san” (Arge)
Besides, her voice is cute.
For the same woman, I am a living creature that loses my confidence for a while.
“Oh, yeah, good morning … Um, Arge, this is …?” (Felnote)
This, of course, is white now in front of me.
It looks like a thick soup and its fragrance is pretty good though …
“It’s a stew” (Arge)
“Ah, it is not from here … Well, it is a soup made with milk and butter” (Arge)
“… Somehow, it’s strange.” (Felnote)
“Because it is thick with wheat flour and potato” (Arge)
Arge answers without hesitation. I mean, is she really a good cook…?
… This child made it, did not she?
To be honest, I am a little scared.
I never saw her making meals till today, and she’s lazy enough to say she’s looking for 『someone to feed her for life and let her take an afternoon nap.』
I wonder if Arge can cook, … just having it as knowledge, I made it properly…
Outside of my concern, Arge came up to me with a casual gait.
When she came to this side, she took the spoon of that liquid.
“Fu ̄̄, fu ̄ … wai, dōzo” (Arge) (blow SFX and here you go)
“Uhm, here you go, she said” (Felnote)
“I have already tasted it, I knew what it’s like to eat” (Arge)
If you give out a spoon with a smile like that, I can not do anything anymore.
… Let’s get cured if I get a stomach-ache.
The cooking skill is unknown, but the recovery magic is godlike.
Perhaps even you look all around the world, she is the only one who has level 10 recovery magic skill.
I saw her working for the first time.
Even part of the lost body was restored.
That has reached the level of 『regeneration』rather than recovery.
If you have that much power, there would be a lot of rumors, and no country would leave her alone, but I’ve never heard any rumors, even her name.
Who exactly is she?
Besides, she is quite mysterious.
All I understand is that she likes to nap and it is quite troublesome, just that the light of the sun is a flat-vampire.
Something I’ve never understood even now…
When I gave up and opened my mouth, a warm liquid was poured in.
It is a thick soup like and it feels like melting my tongue.
I understand that the taste is still of milk, sweet things.
The flavor that stimulates smell is slightly smelled of butter.
Although it is thick, it strangely easy go down my stomach, I do not feel persistent.
The aftertaste is gentle sweetness like cream, I’m feeling great.
The potato grain remaining on the tongue is crisp but leaves sweetness for a long time.
The grain is also swept away by the saliva that was inspired by the sweet taste and it disappeared.
“… It’s delicious, I’ve never known” (Felnote)
That’s amazing. I can not believe it, but Arge seems to be able to cook.
To know that I am anxious about her own cooking and feel at ease with confidence.
She smiled, satisfied with my evaluation.
“Ehehe, I’m glad.” (Arge)
I wonder what I’m thinking.
But Arge is really cute.
Especially her teeth.
The face she makes when laughing, It feels quite appealing to me.
I do not mind being bitten, I think about such things.
Although she’s normally expressionless or sleeping, when she suddenly smiles, I feel my heart skip a beat.
…I thought that I’m normal.
There were only women in the former workplaces, and because of that, there was love among girls …
I, myself, have sometimes been asked out or confessed to.
At the time, my heart didn’t move, but now I know how those kids who confessed to me feel when watching Arge.
Arge is pretty enough to change the common sense that I had until now.
“Eating with bread is also delicious, it’s still hot, so please wait a little longer” (Arge)
““… Are you going to bake bread?” (Felnote)
“Yes, today is a bit simpler, I bake it in a frying pan …
I make it from the fabric properly, and I also cleaned the kitchen lightly” (Arge)
I was surprised to hear my own loud voice.
I hurriedly got up, confirmed the kitchen in a hurry, I was stunned.
… What, this is even more beautiful than when I clean, isn’t it?
Obviously, it was not lightly cleaned.
Just as I just bought this house, both of them are shiny.
It is understood that the floor, the wall, and the ceiling are not dirty, and even the cooking utensils are polished.
My mouth is left half open because of how beautiful it looks.
It seems that my current face is stupid when other people see it.
“Hey, this one …” (Felnote)
“Did you like it? I have not changed the arrangement of cooking utensils and condiments …” (Arge)
“Wait a moment, Arge! you were able to do such a housework!” (Felnote)
“Oh, yes, why do you ask?” (Arge)
“Because you sleep all the time …!” (Felnote)
“For sure, I am always asleep, it is like a figurine that is not useful for anything.” (Arge)
“I have not said that!” (Felnote)
It’s no good, this girl’s pace.
Arge has a peculiar, or rather unique, sense of tension, and this sometimes distracts the topic while talking. That’s how it goes.
I don’t mind it though, but to be clear, I thought I could solve the mystery surrounding her, but instead, it’s gotten more mysterious.
Although it is not important if you do not know why this falling child can do so far,
I can not sleep at night because I am anxious.
“How can you do chores that well?
You said you want 『someone to feed you three meals and let you take an afternoon nap whenever you like』, so you wouldn’t need housekeeping skills.” (Felnote)
“Is that so?” (Arge)
“… I can only think of it like that.” (Felnote)
Because of that, for those who are fed, these skills should be unnecessary.
Arge opens the lid of the frying pan and answers while serving freshly baked bread on a dish.
“Because I don’t have anyone to feed me yet, I thought I should live properly until then.
And what if the person who supports me wanted to take a break or something happened to them?
In those occasions, I can do all the housework instead.” (Arge)
So she wants to live firmly until she find『Someone willing to feed her and let her take an afternoon nap』, and she will live by sticking to that person and sometimes she will help and support them in return.
In other words, Arge’s 『nurturing person』 will be an important person for Arge, not just a slave.
Although She is said that she wants to be live a life with other people feed her, Arge has the feeling of supporting the other person in fact, and that you are acquiring the necessary things properly for that.
Arge seems to have said that he wanted to be nurtured, with a different idea from what I thought.
“…If you have that much effort, I wonder why can’t you just live by yourself” (Felnote)
If you can do just that, you can even live seriously …
I felt a strange headache when I solved the mystery,
but I can’t understand it.
That day, the meal was very delicious.
Honestly, it was better than what I make.
After the meal, Arge baked cookies,
it tastes so good but I was somewhat frustrated.
