“Eh… this really is the Demon Forest!?”
“Is not. Saw in book. This not forest, town.”
Hm, to be precise, this is not a town, but a village.
After relaxing in the garden, I took the children to the place that had been turned into a village.
Lui and Arthur were staring dumbfounded at this large village, the size of a Hokkaido farm.
Their mouths were open and their eyes, though hard to see with their long hair, were probably wide open.
The buildings here, spaced at equal intervals, were typical Japanese houses, and may be unfamiliar to these children.
Arthur declared such confidently, but he’s wrong.
Because there are none. I mean, villagers.
The two turned pale and looked at each other.
“Killed by the monsters…?”
Arthur’s words made Lui tremble.
“That’s not it, okay! It’s nothing like that, there are no monsters around to begin with.”
I decided to explain to the two of them what had happened until now in order to clear up the misunderstanding.
“—Then, M, Mother Kanade suddenly appeared in the Demon Forest, and built a house using your mysterious skill to protect the fruits and that’s how a village with no villagers was created?”
Lui, stop retreating away from me, okay!? Arthur, I am no God, so stop prying to me!!
“Anyhow, this village and our house are surrounded by a barrier, so you are safe! Oh, I don’t recommend it, but if you want to go into the woods, be sure to go with Richmond. If you want to go into town, have Richmond take you as well. Other than that, you can spend your time as you please.”
“As we please… umm, can we really stay here…?”
Lui still looked worried, but it’s probably because he was abused, so he can’t help it.
“I told you already, didn’t I? You two… Lui and Arthur, are my children, so you can stay here forever.”
I told them while hugging them tightly.
I want them to stay here and slowly heal the wounds in their hearts.
I, Kanade Fujii, has two children in another world!

I opened the refrigerator to make lunch, and lo and behold!
There was gochujang (Korean red pepper paste) in it!
So after a long time, I looked at my status and found that my position and family had been added.
I also noticed that Richmond’s age was unknown, but Lui and Arthur were 10 years old!? No wonder they are so mature.
I guess they couldn’t grow up due to lack of nutrition and exercise…
“Alright! I’ll have to feed them both a lot! Since we have gochujang, let’s make dolsot bibimbap!!”
The vegetables I need are carrots, bean sprouts, spinach, and, oh, I don’t have any royal ferns… that’s too bad. This time, let’s make it without it.
“Lui~ Arthur~ I’m going to get some vegetables, are you coming with me~~~?”
I called their names, and they were just on the stairs nearby as they were exploring the house, so they came trotting over.
“Mother, have you called?”
“I heard, say vegetables.”
I was happy to see them talking to me naturally, as if they had gotten over their nervousness.
Lui was still addressing me politely, but I hope that will change soon.
“I’m sorry to interrupt your exploration. I’m going to the field to pick vegetables for lunch, so if you’re interested, would you like to go with me?”
“”Will go (I would like to)!!””
I bundled up their long hair, took a bowl (of kitchen utensils) as usual, and came to the field behind our house.
As usual, the vegetables and fruits were growing in profusion, and I couldn’t help but be thankful.
Ah, there’s newly grown silverbeet!!
I wonder how big our field will grow?
I hope it’s hundred square meters at best. If it gets any bigger, weeding will be too difficult.
Both Lui and Arthur were surprised to see a field that was bigger than those at the village.
“We’re going to harvest carrots and spinach!”
“”Carrot and spinach?””
They are vegetables that may not exist in this world, right? Or they may have different names. It is understandable that they are confused.
“Mom will teach you.”
The children were very quick to learn.
They quickly learned what I taught them, and in no time at all, the harvest was over.
Even so, although they were getting better, I could not force them to work too hard. I went back to the kitchen to serve them sports drink and let them take a break.
“Mother, is there anything else I can help you with?”
“Me too, will help.”
Lui and Arthur were both very capable sons.
“Let’s see… why don’t we make the dolsot bibimbaps together!
