Amaterasu-san and Mana-san came to my stall, and Amaterasu-san, in her unique outfit, attracted a fair amount of attention, but due to the small number of people around this area, she didnt cause a big commotion, and came to the front of our stall.
[Hello, as we had told you before, were here to make a purchase.]
[Hello, Amaterasu-san, Mana-san.
Do you want to have regular baby castellas or ones filled with chocolate]
[Errr, lets see.
Well then, well have 1…… no, 2 for each kind please.]
I guess that means one for Eden-san and one for hers huh Just as Amaterasu-san was speaking though, it looked like Mana-san glanced at Amaterasu-san for a moment, making her rephrase it though……
As I had such thoughts in mind, I prepared the bags and filled them with baby castellas.
This should make it so that the both of them wouldnt be a problem now, but I suddenly felt some sort of viscous gaze, and turning my eyes towards that direction…… I saw Mana-san looking at me with some kind of scary smile.
No, Mana-san herself is a lovely person, and her smile isnt particularly strange in any way, but for some reason, turning my back towards her makes me feel like a frog being gazed at by a snake…… That was supposed to be a normal smile, but her gaze strangely felt like there was something muddy within it.
Am I just overthinking it
[……Haahhh, my bel———– Igyiihh!]
The moment Mana-sans eyes narrowed and she was about to speak, something hit Mana-sans head, making her bite her own tongue.
[Oops, Im sorry about that.
My signpost accidentally slipped out of my hand.
Well~~ Im sorry, Customer-san.]
Saying this while apologizing to Mana-san is Alice but…… Arehh Wasnt our signpost just an ordinary wooden one just now When did it change into a “giant hammer”-like shape
[M- Mana-san, are you alright!]
Im completely alright…… You dont have to worry about me.]
Lightly rubbing her head, Mana-san wryly smiled as she stood up.
As one would expect from Amaterasu-sans assistant, she must be a lot more powerful than her appearance would suggest, as even though a huge hammer hit her in the head, it didnt look like she was hurt at all.
[……Alice, what are you even……]
[No, the signpost really just slipped out of my hand.
It was a complete accident.]
[Right, right, that was just an accident, so you really dont have to mind it!]
It looked as if Alice hitting her head was intentional, but putting aside if it was just Alice saying it, since Mana-san herself also said it was an accident, then I cant say anything more.
[……Is Alice and Mana-san acquainted with each other]
[Hnn~~ Well, weve actually met each other through our connection with Eden-san.
I havent met Amaterasu-san though.]
[Thats because we had different places in charge after all.
Back when I…… Errr, Miyama Kaito-san went to the beach, the one who delivered the ingredients being sponsored by Eden-sama was me.
We became close at that time.]
[Ahh~~ I see, come to think of it, that was indeed the case.]
Alice mentioned that Eden-san prepared the ingredients we would be using for our meals at the beach, and Mana-san was the one who delivered them at that time huh…… I thought Eden-san would have just created them on the spot, but with her having various detailed agreements with Shiro-san, I suppose that is why she had someone deliver them instead.
[W- Well, anyhow, Im glad you arent injured.]
[You were worried about me! Haahh, you really are my cu——–]
[Ahh, this thing really is slippery.]
As Mana-san was about to say something, Alice swung that huge hammer she called a signpost, making a sound that clearly shouldnt have been made by a person.
That was a pretty strong blow! Are they sure Alice isnt seriously trying to break her neck!
[A- Alice, you!]
[It cant be helped, dont blame me.
My hand slipped.]
[No, you still claim your hand slipped Its quite obvious that……]
[Her hand slipped! The signpost slipped off her hand from my point of view, so theres no problem at all!!!]
No matter how you look at it, it looked like she intentionally hit Mana-san on the head with that hammer, but putting aside if it was just Alice playing dumb, if Mana-san is also doing her best to support Alices claim, it makes me confused and unable to say anything.
W- What the heck is this strange scene…… I feel like Im gonna go crazy.
W- Well, if she says shes alright, I guess I shouldnt say anything about this anymore……
[……Errr, well then, Amaterasu-san.
Here are 2 bags of each kind.]
[Thank you very much.
Errr, please pass them to Mana-san.]
Mana-san, here you go.]
[Thank you very much! Do your best with your stall.]
[Y- Yes, thank you very much.]
Im not really sure whats going on, but I feel that thinking about this any deeper will only tire me out, so I saw off the two of them off, with Mana-san waving her hand with a satisfied look on her face, and Amaterasu-san deeply bowing with an indescribable expression on her face.
Serious-senpai : [I see, because she created that body weak, so she can be stopped by physical damage……]
: [And so, just like usual, Alice-chan holds the role of supporting others.
Alice-chan really is excellent, and I think Kaito-san should reward Alice-chan.]
Serious-senpai : [Stop with the one-man play.]
