Chapter 167.1

“It’s almost afternoon . ” [Rurunez]

Rurunez-san muttered around the time I’d gathered plenty of data from the experiments conducted .

“It’s that time already? In that case, let’s end the experiments here today . Everyone has to eat too . ” [Ryouma]

“Very well . ” [Rurunez]

At that, she informed everyone that it was time to end the experiments for the day .

I went to check how the cleanup of the scene was doing, and it was then that I noticed that the madam looked rather sad .

“Are you alright, Madam?” [Ryouma]

“Ryouma-kun? Oh, it’s nothing . I’m not really troubled or anything . ” [Elize]

When I called out to her, she responded in the same tone as usual .

It didn’t seem like she was trying to hide that she was feeling bad .

Was I mistaken?

“You seemed sad, so I thought you might have been feeling unwell . ” [Ryouma]

“Oh, my . Really? …Thank you . But it’s nothing special . It’s just that the lunch after this is…” [Elize]


I wasn’t expecting to hear her talk about lunch, so I ended up showing a befuddled look on my face .

The madam laughed and said .

“You know that winter – especially the start of the end of the year- is when the socializing season of the nobles begin, right? During this period there are a lot of parties, ranging from small to big, and there are also plenty of opportunities to have a meal with others . But to be frank, the food at these parties are really bad . ” [Elize]

“…Come to think of it . ” [Ryouma]

I think it was a long while back, though it shouldn’t have been a year just yet, when I held a party to celebrate the opening of my store .

“You said the same thing then . Something about noble cuisine being nothing but something to throw money at and the food doesn’t taste good . ” [Ryouma]

I still remember when they praised my food so much and I thought they normally ate delicious food, only for me to find out that it was the opposite .  But then again, the food I’ve been eating since coming to this mansion of theirs has always been delicious . I dare say the food even felt luxurious, but…

“Food meant for parties are different . There are those who eat such food regularly under the idea that such food is the food of a true noble, but I, no, we don’t share that way of thinking . And we eat normal food . The food to be served also varies depending on who the guest is . ” [Elize]

I see . It would probably be better to think of noble cuisine as a completely different kind of food .

“Given the timing that you’re talking about this, I take it that this means that you have to eat this party cuisine this afternoon?” [Ryouma]
