In the end, Mai-san and Yurie-san stayed overnight―
the next morning, I had breakfast with a great number of people.
「Yurie-san, you can stay here for as long as you want until it settles down.」
Yurie-san bowed completely like a lady.
Umu, Yurie-san looks strange as expected.
She’s totally like another person.
I used【Appraisal】and knew that she’s herself, but…...
At the beginning, I thought she’s confused because there was such incident,
but it doesn’t seem to be so.
Did she become submissive from the after effect of the devilization?
However, her condition somehow has gone amiss.
「Did a reporter come to the junior college?」
As Aya mentioned,
the morning’s wide show’s『A female college student behind closed doors disappearance case』is extensively picked up by every station.
It’s already booming, and it seems going to continue.
「Since I have work, I can’t help, but…...
Aya, go to the junior college earlier than usual, and check if there’s a suspicious guy.
If there’s someone suspicious, contact Mai-san and Yurie-san.」
「If a reporter comes to the junior college,
you should take a day off, Yurie-san.
can I ask you with the task of buying meals, and necessities?」
「Yes, leave it to us!」
「Everyone…...thank you very much.」
Hmm, this gentle form of Yurie-san…...
they said that the neighborhood bully only becomes attractive during the movie version, is this the『beautiful○○』phenomenon?
I went to the office and confirmed the situation of the tracking beacon in the midst of work, but…...
as expected, a lot of reporters surged toward the junior college.
Aya informed them about the reporters,
Yurie-san decided to take a day off from the junior college,
Mai-san took a day off from the junior college as well and accompanied Yurie-san.
『I’m sorry captain, it’s because of me.』
『Don’t worry about it.』
Although she’s a little girl, Mai-san is a man among men.
『Thank you, captain.』
Yurie-san hugged Mai-san.
『Yurie-kun, you’re still not well as expected, huh?』
『How should I say it...the momentum when you hug me is weaker than before.』
『Is that so?』
『Un, how should I say it…...
it feels like it’s filled with a dark force, filling it with more lust than before.』
『Hmm, you could say that.
How should I say it…...
I don’t understand it well myself, but…...
a fuzzy, dark feeling covered my mind, it feels like I have gone somewhere.』
I have a bad feeling about this…...
Has the curse not dispelled yet?
No, I properly confirmed that the curse was dispelled using【Appraisal】.
Then, it’s not the curse but something else…...
Umu, I don’t understand!
Six girls greeted me when I got home.
N? Six girls!?
「Good evening, Seiji-san.」
「Ringo, you have come, huh!」
It feels like it has been a very long time since I last saw Ringo.
「I’ve become worried when I heard about Yurie-san from Aya-chan.
So I’ve come.」
It seems like every one of the『Seiji army corps』have gathered!
With this, it’d be a harem situation if Aya isn’t here.~
「Ah,with this, it’d be like an enjoyable field trip if onii-chan isn’t here~.」
「What did you say!?」
When Aya glared at me,
Ringo broke in to stop us.
Ringo is seriously an angel.
「Oops, I almost forgot.
There’s something I’d like to give to you, Ringo.」
「To me? What is it?」
I gave the【Sacrificial necklace】which I bought before and remained as is.
It has some mysterious design, huh.」
「This is a【Sacrificial necklace】, they said that it’s an item that will substitute its owner when he/she is in a pinch for only one time.」
Although I said the truth in a joking manner, she didn’t believe it, did she?
Ringo picks her sketchbook up and starts sketching the【Sacrificial necklace】.
Did she like it? It seems alright.
Since everyone gathered together after a long time, the girls chatted happily.
And then, I prepared dinner all alone.
Today’s recipe is『gratin』.
Since I have a little too much roasting tin,
I make around 10 servings of the ingredients, and set them into the roasting tins.
The ingredients are hotate, prawns, and mushrooms.
Only around four can be roasted in the house’s microwave oven at the same time,
So I first warm the microwave oven up,
then wait for the heat to spread out thoroughly while irradiating it with infrared rays using【Light magic】to keep it warm.
Then I scorch the surface of the cheese using【Fire magic】and it’s done.
I immediately put the finished product into the inventory to keep it piping hot, and oven fresh.
When I finished the preparations for the salad, and carried it on the table,
the girls gathered.
「Onii-chan, what’s today’s menu?」
Waa *clap clap*!
A cheer broke out from the girls.
However, this number of people...
The table of the house’s living room was big to some degree, but…...
since three girls sat on each side, there was no place where I can sit.
I carried the gratin,
carried the french bread which I cut into pieces,
and poured grape juice into the six people’s glasses.
Hilda is blowing『fufu』on the piping hot gratin.
Aya eats the gratin up, and asks for another helping.
Since the salad has disappeared, I’ve made another one.
The『strawberry』is served as a dessert after the meal…...
I have no time to eat!!
And the girls’ leftover food…...
※The staff ate with great relish after this.
This is probably a reference to Takeshi Gouda when he becomes beautiful or good in the woodcutter’s spring/pond episode of Doraemon.
