“You’re trying to carry too much on your own. You’re worrying what will happen with Luthors and Reesha now, aren’t you?”
As Kishana put three bowls of gyudon on a tray, she guessed exactly what was going through Schenna’s head.
And while Luthors had been able to tell what was worrying Schenna earlier as well, if Swead were to find out that the two slaves had been rescued and brought to Priden, the relationship between the two countries could start to break. If that happened, then Schenna’s selfish act would directly affect Reesha’s position.
“You can be proud you rescued those children without hesitation. I’m really glad I have a good friend like you that can do that. But please stop trying to be humble and just rely on us more.”
“…Okay, I’m sorry.”
“What an awkward and clumsy knight you are. Now take that tray and bring some food to Grana and those children.”
Hearing her words, Schenna’s heart calmed down.
Schenna felt like she had just been running around aimlessly while only focusing on trying to be a good leader that could carry any responsibility from her companions.
“Luthors, can you help to carry one of the gyudon bowls?”
“Sure, I can do that anytime.”
Schenna carried the tray upstairs to Caro and Mauro, whose stomach growled as soon as they saw the food.
“You’re hungry, right? Eat now, before it gets cold.”
“Miss…we’re sorry. We don’t have any money, we can’t pay for the food or the treatment.”
“You’re still children so don’t worry about that. You’re not slaves anymore. From now on you can live like free and normal people so calm down.”
Schenna gently petted their heads and let them eat.
Luthors carelessly placed the last gyudon bowl on the table for Grana, then left without saying anything.
“…I guess I should go get breakfast myself now.”
“Grana, can you tell me a few things about Luthors later?”
“It’s not something that can easily be told to others. But I’ll tell you after work is done for today.”
Grana then started stuffing his cheeks with gyudon, and his appearance as he played with the children looked really different from that of a Demon King.
Schenna went back downstairs, and after finishing the preparations the restaurant started its daily business.
