Omuhayashi and Goddess
Cat-Subhuman Male’s Point of View
It’s yellow… probably egg, covered with a thick brown sauce, which smelled indescribably good and stimulated my appetite, making me drool.
The sauce was filled with meat and vegetables, and something was bulging under the egg.
“Please enjoy! I hope it suits your taste.”
The Goddess urged us to eat, so while wondering if someone like me was allowed to enjoy such a delicious-looking dish, I decided to eat.
“Mhm. Delicious! The marriage of the egg and ketchup rice with this sauce is magnificent!!”
“Richmond, as usual, your food reportage is excellent. Thank you.”
The fact that Lord Dragon praised the dish and the Goddess thanked him with a wry smile means that this dish may have been prepared by the Goddess herself.
Thrilled by the feast I had never seen before, I scooped it up with a spoon and put it in my mouth…
The sweet and sour sauce, the vegetables, the smoked meat, and the eggs that wrapped it all together made the acidity of the meat and vegetables more harmonious, and they created something delicious together. This savoriness of the meat, the sweetness of the vegetables, and this brown sauce!
This was a Heavenly dish.
“Yummy! I’ve never tasted anything this good before!!”
The child, who had suffered from having her tongue pulled out, said this with a big smile on her face, and the child’s parents burst into tears at the sight, their hands still unstoppable, testifying to the deliciousness of the dish.
The Human race scholar was also in tears, shoveling the food into his mouth.
“Mother Kanade’s meals are the best!”
“I love, Mother Kanade’s meals.”
Even the Angels were raving about how delicious it was. Maybe I am already dead, maybe I am in Heaven.
In no time at all, I had finished eating the heavenly food, and I wished I had tasted a little more of it, but somehow I felt strangely empowered.
“As expected, your cooking restored all my mana and strength, Kanade.”
I was convinced by Lord Dragon’s words that this was the power of the Goddess.
So this was the reason I was overflowing with power that I hadn’t felt until now.
“Ahaha, I wonder if it is because of the vegetables or the seasonings.”
According to the Goddess, the vegetables used in this dish were not ordinary ones, but rather medicines like the potion we drank earlier.
“O’ Goddess! Thank you for sharing such a precious thing with us.”
When I bowed my head, the others bowed their heads in unison, and the Goddess hurriedly shouted, “Raise your head, please.”
“I’m not a Goddess, and I didn’t do anything that you should bow down to me for. It was Richmond who saved you, and I only cooked the meal.”
“We are grateful to Lord Dragon and to the Angels, too. However, I heard that this is the paradise created by you, the Goddess. Lord Dragon said that you would welcome us here…”
“Th, the village was certainly created with my skill, but, umm, I was lonely because there were no villagers, and it was hard to manage the village’s fields and houses on my own, so, you know, if possible, I would be happy if you all could help me manage the village… And the houses will last longer if there are people living in them.”
I am not the only one who was surprised by what the Goddess said.
“Goddess, you are not only willing to let us stay here, but you are also offering us a house and a field!?”
“? Yes, of course. I will provide a house and a field for each family, and you can use them as you like.
Needless to say, we were all stunned.
Kanade’s Point of View
“Richmond, did I say something weird?”
Five of them stopped moving with their eyes wide open and mouths hanging open in front of me, so I sneak up next to Richmond and inquired from him. However, Richmond just laughed and said, “Who knows.”
The kids didn’t say anything either, so I wondered if we could go on with the introductions.
“Umm, I’d like to do the introductions first, if that’s all right.”
At the sound of my voice, the young man with cat ears suddenly said, “Yes, that’s right!! I apologize.” and bowed his head. Then, the other four followed with bowing their heads, so I had to repeat myself, “As I said, you don’t have to do that.”
“Then, let me begin. I am Kanade Fujii. I am 15 years old, and I am the village chief of this village. I live in a house at the back of the village with Richmond and these children. Please come visit me anytime. Nice to make your acquaintance!”
Yep. I’m sure this introduction was fine, right?
“I’m next. I’m Richmond. I’m a dragon, as you know, and like you, I was picked up by Kanade. Please take care of me from now on.”
Richmond’s smart self-introduction surprised the dog-eared man, who asked, “Did, did the Goddess save you, too, Lord Dragon!?” But the introductions continued.
“I am Lui. The other day, I was abandoned in the woods and was picked up by Mother Kanade and Grandpa Richmond. I think I am 10 years old, because I was once told I had been kept alive for 10 years.”
“Arthur. Same as Lui.”
Compared to Lui, Arthur’s introduction was short.
Both of them are still small for 10 years old, but they started getting taller in the last few days, so I am sure they will grow up soon.
When our family’s self-introductions were over, and I looked at the five others, the cat-eared man opened his mouth nervously.
