Ch. 43: The Morning at the Research Lab


It was the morning after the interrogation with the Royal Magecraft Knights.


They offered to take me home, but I refused their offer and walked home.


Werner: “It’s bright.”


The morning light burned my eyes after staying up all night.


But the cold air that cut through the winter morning felt nice.


As I returned to the Marquis’ Mansion, my sister was waiting for me.


Werner: “I’m back.”


Bridget: “Welcome home. Could you tell me how it went?” Werner: “I just got back from answering many questions during the interrogation…”


Bridget: “Let me hear about it regardless. You can do it while you eat breakfast.”


Werner: “Fine. But I don’t need breakfast. I’ve been up all night, and I’m pretty sleepy.”


And I give my sister a short report.


But even though I am summarizing, I am not skipping over details about the incident.


I am, however, skimming over the details concerning the Magecraft Artifacts.


At the Royal Magecraft Knight’s headquarters, I had to explain what each artifact did and its effect.


I didn’t have to explain the artifacts in such detail to my sister, so the conversation only lasted for 20 minutes or so.


With all the explanations provided, I returned to the Research Lab.


Werner: “That reminds me… I was baking the first experimental bread in the Bread-Baking Magecraft Artifact.”


If the Magecraft Artifact works as designed, then the bread should be baked by now.


I’m looking forward to seeing the outcome, but I would like to take a nap before we taste it.


As I made those plans in my head, I disengaged the Barrier and opened the door.


Hati: “My Lorrrrrrrrd~”


Hati came running up crying and jumped into my arms.


Werner: “What’s wrong?”

Hati: “(hic)........when Hati woke, my Lord was not here so…….(sob)....”


Werner: “Ah, I see.” Since I was nowhere to be seen when she awoke, Hati thought I may have abandoned her.


Werner: “A lot happened last night.”


Hati: “What is meant by a lot?” Hati began pushing her head against my chest.


I got a good bit of her tears and boogers all over my chest.


She is an Infant Dragon, so it was to be expected.


Werner: “Last night, some bad guys came andーー”

As I carried Hati in my arms, I explained last night’s events.


This is the 3rd time I’m having to do so.


I pat her head as I speak, and Hati seems to have calmed down.

Werner: “So that’s why I had to head out to answer some questions.”


Hati: “I see~ OH! My Lord! I smell something good! Is it dried ration bread perhaps?”


Now that she’s calm, she noticed the smell of freshly baked bread from the Magecraft Artifact.


Werner: “Ah, yes. Last night, I completed the Bread-Baking Magecraft Artifact.”


Hati: “That’s amazing! Will we get to eat it?”


Her tear-stained face with a runny rose had now drool added to it.


She really is still an Infant Dragon.


Werner: “I don’t know if the bread will be good though.” Hati: “Hati would still like to try it!”


Werner: “All right. Let’s try it.” I open the lid of the Bread-Baking Magecraft Artifact.


As soon as I did so, steam immediately rose out.


Hati: “Ohhhhh~”


Werner: “The smell and look of it gets passing marks.”


I take out the bread and cut it with a kitchen knife.


Werner: “The inside of it also looks good.”


Hati: “It looks delicious!”


I hand Hati a sliced piece of bread.


Werner: “You can try it.”


Hati: “Thank you! I will!”


Hati began furiously nibbling and eating the bread.


Werner: “How does it taste?”


Hati: “It is very delicious!”


Werner: “That’s good to hear.”

Hati: “My Lord, you will not eat any?” Werner: “No, I will.” Hati: “It tastes even better when we eat it together!”


And Hati continued to devour the bread.


It looks like she’s really enjoying it.


I also tear off a piece and taste it.


Werner: “Oh, it’s good.”

Hati: “My Lord, this bread is very delicious! It’s the most delicious bread I’ve tasted so far!”


I think she’s over-exaggerating.


But it was indeed a delicious bread.


Werner: “I think the Bread-Making Magecraft Artifact is complete.”


Hati: “Well done, my Lord!”


And I place more ingredients inside the Bread-Making Artifact and turn it back on.


It’s to be able to eat some bread after I wake up.


Since I stayed up all night, the bread might have just tasted better due to the fatigue.


Werner: “So I’m going to sleep. I didn't sleep at all last night.”


Hati: “Understood! Hati will protect my Lord while he sleeps!”


Werner: “Thank you, Hati.” I got into bed, and Hati sat on top of me.


She plans to protect me from there.


I patted Hati on the head as I closed my eyes.


Although I was feeling sleepy, I could not fall asleep immediately.


So much has happened last night, so my body may still be excited.


As I was thinking about those thingsーー


Hati: (*snore~~)


I heard Hati breathe as she slept.


Looks like she fell asleep already.


She might have even woken up last night and stayed awake through the night.


And realizing that I was not here, she may have been too worried to go back to sleep.


As I listened to Hati breathe, I fell asleep at some point without realizing it.
