You have it!?
“I would let you eat it, but I don’t have the spices on me, so I can’t do it right away.”

I don’t have the spices I had on hand because I had fully entrusted Shin to make curry back at the mansion.
The unique aroma of curry spices is amazing, and since we wouldn’t be able to eat curry in the dorm anyway, I thought it would be better if we could eat it when we got back to the mansion.
I thought it would be better if I could eat it when I got back to the mansion, since I wouldn’t be able to eat curry in the dorm anyway.
I mean, we can’t cause a mess in the dorm with such strong aroma, right?

“Of course not right away! If you need, the Mayor Company will make all-out effort to get them! So, by all means, by all means…!”
“Mariel-san, please stop worshiping me. I can make it when I get the spices. It’s not that I can’t get any of those on my own because they are rare or something… however, it’s just some of them are ingredients for medicines, so we might need to go the Apothecary Guild to buy them.”

When I said that, Mariel-chan looked up with a start and asked me timidly.

“Oh, I didn’t know that some ingredients are used in… medicine. Could it be that curry spice is quite an expensive…?”
“Yeah…”

When I officially taught Shin the recipe for the spices, I seem to remember him puzzling over how much a single meal would cost…
It’s definitely not the kind of price you can casually eat as a national dish like in my previous life.
I make it when requested by my Otousama or Okaasama because they say they feel better after eating it, but it’s not something that’s on the table much even in our house.
Although Otousama and Okaasama don’t care about the cost as long as it tastes good, the cooks seem to be reluctant to make it because they know from Shin’s behavior that spices are expensive, and what if they fail in the process?
Though, there’s no need to worry about it because you won’t fail by simply following the recipe.

“Ugh… that’s fine! I will gather the ingredients even if it has to come out of my personal expenses, so please, by all means…!”

Mariel-chan clapped her hands loudly and assumed the position of praying, nearly even dropping down to the floor to prostrate. I’m tired…
Naturally, I declined using Mariel-chan’s personal expenses and promised to make it after I returned to the mansion and brought back the spices.
I could invite Mariel-chan to the mansion, but in that case Sei, Byakko-sama and the others wouldn’t be able to eat it, so…
I guess I could transfer to the Bastea Company and bring it to them, but I’m afraid I might inadvertently become a curry aroma terrorist in the merchant district.
I can use a barrier and clearing magic to prevent smells, but I don’t think Byakko-sama and the others would concern themselves with that.
If it’s the special dormitory, other people won’t come, so I can either cast a barrier around it, and clearing magic after, or tell everyone to be mindful.
Oh, that’s right. It might be a good idea to invite Oniisama and Prince Raymond to come and enjoy the curry after a while.
… Ah, I won’t be making an advanced (very hot) curry, though. Yeah.
