Nnh......?
At Sakuramochi's voice calling her name, Strawberry Daifuku opened her eyes. Then, with her drowsy eyes she noticed that a man that she doesn't recognize is giving them a talk.

Master Attendant
―― so, well, that's why I'm taking him here...
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
That's right. I'm currently travelling through various lands. I'm sure I've also visited remote places that all of you surely have never come to before.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
Or rather, remote places are the ones I would usually visit.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
However, there are still a lot of places that I haven't visited. I especially haven't got the chance to visit the more famous areas.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
I'd like to visit this place called "Forgotten Courtyard". Is there anyone who is kind enough to accompany me going there?
At the question, everyone immediately went silent. No one looks like they wanted to raise their hand.
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
See, this will be difficult, Tteokguk. It's too sudden, no one is following what we're saying.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
What... Master Attendant! To think that you'll abandon me too...
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
I- it's not that I'm abandoning you...
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
In that case, you have to help making them more interested! Come on! Come on!!
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
E- even if you say that...!
The atmosphere is clearly becoming too stiff. Master Attendant looked away, seemingly troubled by his predicament.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
... Is that so. Then it can't be helped. I'm used to "solitude", so I suppose I will be fine.
Tteokguk put up a gentle smile, but anyone could clearly see that he's disappointed. Seeing Tteokguk looking like that, Strawberry Daifuku feels sympathy towards him and becomes sad as well.
Portrait-Strawberry Daifuku.png
Strawberry Daifuku
(He, he looks so pitiful! If this keeps going on, that big brother will end up going to the Forgotten Courtyard alone...!?)

Tteokguk
Aah, you! Do you mean it!? It makes me so happy!
Portrait-Strawberry Daifuku.png
Strawberry Daifuku
I- is that so? Ehehe... If you're so happy about it, then it makes me happy too...
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
Thank you! I will definitely make you happy. That's why, be at ease and marry me, alright? My little lover!!

Starry Sky Day 1, Dawn - Gloriville
Portrait-Mechanical Storm.png
B-52
Phew... I've rode pretty far. I think the surroundings have also become more crowded.
B-52 stopped his motorbike and heaved a sigh. After that, he tapped the touch panel a few times.
Portrait-Mechanical Storm.png
B-52
I just followed my heart and rode all the way here, but... where am I exactly?
Sometimes strangers would call out and try to stop him. He ignored all of them, but still he wondered what did they want from him.

As a result, by the time he realized he had reached this unfamiliar place... Thinking that he should return to where Brownie is as soon as possible, he tried to focus on looking for information through the panel screen.

However, even after he tried looking at the maps of his surroundings, he still can't figure out his current location.

Portrait-Mechanical Storm.png
B-52
That's right, I'm actually not good at reading maps. Brownie is usually the one who handled this sort of thing.
Realizing his own foolishness, B-52 then decided to give up on looking at the maps.
Portrait-Mechanical Storm.png
B-52
Hm...? That's――
A bit far from where he is, B-52 spotted a man lying on the ground. Curious, B-52 talked up to the man ―― 'What are you doing, in this kind of place?'
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
Aah... I apologize. It seems I've fallen asleep before I realized. My name is Tteokguk. What is your name?
Portrait-Mechanical Storm.png
B-52
I'm B-52. Just an ordinary cocktail.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
Hee... Mr. B-52, Just-An-Ordinary-Cocktail. That's a pretty long name you have there.
Portrait-Mechanical Storm.png
B-52
You can just call me B-52.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
I understand. Then, B-52, I have a question for you: where is this place?
Portrait-Mechanical Storm.png
B-52
I actually wanted to ask that question to you ―― What a predicament.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
I see. I wanted to go to the Guild of Chefs. If you know where it is, I'd like to ask you to take me there, but... how unfortunate.
Portrait-Mechanical Storm.png
B-52
Guild of Chefs... if I'm not mistaken, that's an organization of Master Attendants.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
Ooh! So you do know! Please take me there!
Portrait-Mechanical Storm.png
B-52
Even though you asked me that... aah, that's right! If I'm not mistaken, this machine is equipped with a route guidance function.
Suddenly remembering what Brownie told him, B-52 then talked to the touch panel.
Portrait-Mechanical Storm.png
B-52
"I want to go to Gloriville's Guild of Chefs."
Responding to B-52's words, a voice came from the machine, saying that "the destination has been set".
Portrait-Mechanical Storm.png
B-52
It seems there is a restaurant that belongs to a Master Attendant not too far from here. Hop on. Let's head there together.
Tteokguk gratefully accepted B-52's offer and together they go to said Master Attendant's restaurant.

Starry Sky Day 1, Morning - Gloriville
Master Attendant, who was enjoying a peaceful rest on his bed, was forced to wake up at the sound of noisy knocks at his front door.
Portrait-Mechanical Storm.png
B-52
Then, I will be taking my leave. Please handle the rest.
After entrusting Tteokguk to Master Attendant's care, B-52 dashingly left with his motorbike.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
That was an exhilarating drive. To think that I would have the chance to experience such a thrilling trip so early in the morning!
Master Attendant, after letting out a big yawn, talked to the gently smiling young man.
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
Sorry, but may I know your name? Have we ever met before?
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
No, I think this is our first meeting. Master Attendant, I'm honored to finally be able to see you. My name is Tteokguk. Pleased to make your acquaintance.
Tteokguk elegantly held out his hand, offering a handshake to Master Attendant.
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
Y- yeah, nice to meet you too.
Although perplexed, Master Attendant accepted the handshake offer while sporting a tight smile.
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
Err, you said you have a business with me. What is it about?
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
You are part of the Guild of Chefs, aren't you?
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
Yes, that's right. I'm the Head of Guild of Chefs's Gloriville Branch. Do you have a business with the Guild?
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
... I'm currently traveling around places. But I don't usually come to famous cities like this. Instead, I would frequent areas that are difficult to reach.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
The people in Guild of Chefs built in those places often help me out... and the actual condition in those places is the reason I bestir myself like this.
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
Huh...?
Couldn't completely understand what the other is trying to say, Master Attendant could only nod as he listened on.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
Often times the Fallen Angels nesting in rural areas are far more violent compared to the ones living around the capitals. However, I feel that the Guild of Chefs isn't handling this problem appropriately.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
I feel that perhaps because they're located in rural areas, that the Guild of Chefs isn't aware about this problem. The Master Attendants and their Food Souls who are stationed there are all wounded and exhausted.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
I would like to have the upper echelons in Guild of Chefs to see their pitiful state. That's why I decided to come here.
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
I see... so that's why.
Listening to his story, Master Attendant could only nod. He feels his heart is getting clenched, thinking that they must be having it hard.

However ―― his position is just that of the Guild of Chefs's Gloriville Branch's Chief. And he's still pretty much a beginner.

Although he feels moved by the story, it doesn't mean he knows what he can do to help out.

Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
I understand. In that case, would you be able to contact someone of a higher rank than you? Please, I beg you.
The young man begged as he bowed deeply at him, so Master Attendant decided to contact Olivia.
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
Seems she'll be able to get here soon. As we wait, how about having a breakfast together with me?
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
That would make me so happy! I'm actually feeling really hungry. I'll be grateful to accept the meal!.
When Master Attendant served Tteokguk a breakfast he made, his eyes gleamed with enthusiasm as he started digging into the food.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
This is very delicious! Your cooking is Very Good! I really, really like it.
Tteokguk seemed to be really pleased as he digs in the foods that Master Attendant makes. Although he's practically wolfing down on his foods, the way he eats is still pretty well-mannered. It seems he's a well-educated Food Soul.
Portrait-Rice.png
Rice
Good morning, Master Attendant! ... Who is that person?
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
Good morning, Rice. This person is called Tteokguk. He has a business with the Guild of Chefs.
Portrait-Rice.png
Rice
How do you do? I'm Rice. It's a pleasure to meet you, Tteokguk.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
How do you do. It's a pleasure to meet you too, Miss Rice.
The time passed peacefully in the restaurant. However, at that time the Master Attendat wasn't aware just yet. Of the terrifying event that will soon unfold――

I've heard about it from the Guild of Chefs. So I contacted Olivia and we rushed to get here.
Champagne's lips formed a fearless smile.
Portrait-Champagne.png
Champagne
Tteokguk... I've heard about him, because I used to participate in wars too.
Portrait-Olivia.png
Olivia
So? I've heard the summary from Master Attendant. I'll listen to what you have to say as a representative for the Guild of Chefs. I'll take the responsibility to convey your story to the higher-ups.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
Miss Olivia, huh... well, alright. Then, let's tell them the story. If you would please.
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
Eh...? What did you just say?
Despite his calm tone, what Tteokguk said afterwards made everyone present surprised.
Portrait-Rice.png
Rice
Master Attendant! Tteokguk said something really scary! He said he'll destroy Tierra!!
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
Miss Rice, please calm down. I was just saying that I won't have any choice but to do that if the negotiation fails. I don't actually wish for it to happen either.
Portrait-Olivia.png
Olivia
Then why are you bringing up such a scary topic?
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
Well, I'm thinking that I should make you understand how serious I am with this. There are a lot of Food Souls who feel discontented with how the Guild of Chefs and other humans work. Mr. Boston Lobster, for example. I think he might be willing to cooperate with me if I were to ask him for it.
Portrait-Olivia.png
Olivia
......
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
O, Olivia! W, what should we do?
Portrait-Olivia.png
Olivia
Calm down, Master Attendant. I'm thinking about it right now...
Portrait-Champagne.png
Champagne
Excuse me. Olivia, let me talk with him for a bit.
After shooting a wink at Olivia, Champagne seated himself down in front of Tteokguk.
Portrait-Champagne.png
Champagne
If you really want to pick a fight with the Guild of Chefs, you won't bother stopping by this small branch office, and will choose a smoother method.
Portrait-Champagne.png
Champagne
But instead you choose to talk about it here, which means you want this to end peacefully, without making it into a big fuss... or am I wrong?
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
...... You're as shrewd as always, Champagne. I don't want to aggravate the matter. This time, as long as I receive the promise that you guys will start paying attention to the Guild of Chefs in urban areas too, I will retreat peacefully.
Portrait-Champagne.png
Champagne
And what's your terms?
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
Thank you for making this easier. I'm glad that someone like you is around.
Portrait-Champagne.png
Champagne
Just hurry and say it. Depending on the conditions you place, I don't think an all-out war would be so bad.
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
Ho, ho- ho- hold on there!! Champagne!?
Champagne's sharp gaze remained fixated on Tteokguk as he stopped the panicked Master Attendant with one hand. Tteokguk's lips formed a gentle smile, caring nothing of the gaze.

I want my partner to be a Food Soul contracted to a member of the Guild of Chefs. It'll be meaningless if it's someone completely unrelated.

―― So you want a hostage.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
It seems you're a pretty bright person as well. You'll be a great help, Olivia.
Portrait-Olivia.png
Olivia
Should I thank you for that? Don't underestimate me too much.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
Please don't be so angry, Lady. I apologize, I didn't mean to offend you. That aside, I don't mind if you think that I want to take a "hostage". Please introduce a Food Soul that can become my bride to me.
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
...... You say that, but... I don't think there's anyone who would be willing to become your bride if they know that it actually means they'll be a hostage.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
Please don't misunderstand. I wish to build an amiable relationship with the Guild of Chefs. And the marriage will be a step to achieve it. I swear that I will make my bride happy.
Tteokguk smiled as he said that. How am I supposed to believe in his words after listening to all of that... the Master Attendant thought as he felt his head starting to ache.
Portrait-Olivia.png
Olivia
Master Attendant, I'll talk to our higher-ups about what we'll do from here on. I'll have them send out people to help maintain the Guild of Chefs in urban areas as soon as possible.
Pausing, Olivia then turned her head to look at Master Attendant.

That's why, Master Attendant, go and introduce someone nice that can become his marriage partner.

After listening from the people in the restaurant of what had happened until Master Attendant and co. left to go to Satan's Coffee House, Ichi hurriedly went and barge on them in Satan's Coffee House.

Then, when he learned that they will go to Sakurajima, he announced that he'll go with them.

He's the one who said that he want to go to that place. Is there a problem with him coming to Sakurajima?

No, not about that. The place that we'll visit is...... he'll try to find a bride there, right?

What you can do is make it so that no unfortunate child is chosen to take up the role. Do your best to maneuver the conversation, Master Attendant.

All while harboring such doubt, Master Attendant headed to Sakurajima together with his comrades.

Both of us know next to nothing about each other. So I think that it's important for us to start from learning about each other. If by the end of the day this engagement turned out to be difficult to work with, then we can just break it off. Don't worry, Sanma. I'm an ally of the Ladies. I absolutely won't do anything that makes her feel uncomfortable.

Yes, your will. Tteokguk said that he'd like to go to the Forgotten Courtyard with you so he can deepen his relationship with you.

Strawberry Daifuku
I, I......
Strawberry Daifuku glanced at Tteokguk. Seeing Strawberry Daifuku hesitating, Tteokguk smiled gently at him.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
Strawberry Daifuku, for a beginning, I'd like to become your friend. Won't you please come with me to the Forgotten Courtyard?
The gentleman act didn't make her feel anxious at all. He's a nice person――Strawberry Daifuku's intuition told her so.
Portrait-Strawberry Daifuku.png
Strawberry Daifuku
I, if we can start from being friends......! T, then, yes, let's do it like that!
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
Thank you! Then, let me introduce myself again. My name is Tteokguk. I hope we can get along.

You can count on me to take care of Strawberry Daifuku. I'll do my best so that she can enjoy this vacation.

Then, we'll be going too! We'll come visit again!

Yes, we'll be waiting for your next visit, Miss Rice, Master Attendant, Mr. Ichi.

Have fun there, Strawberry Daifuku!

Going to the Forgotten Courtyard for a vacation... I'm so jealous!

Don't forget to get some souvenirs for us~!
Portrait-Sanma.png

…… So, why are you guys here, all of a sudden?
Portrait-Sukiyaki.png
Sukiyaki
It's because we heard that Tteokguk is coming here.
Portrait-Sanma.png
Sanma
Oh? You know him?
Portrait-Miso Soup.png
Miso Soup
He's so famous that everyone knows his name, at least. Right, Master Attendant?
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
Eh? I, is that so……?
Portrait-Tempura.png

Well, you probably don't know him, though. That happened a long time ago anyway.
Portrait-Ichi.png
Ichi
Attendant~! Hurry up!
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
Y, yeah……!
Portrait-Sanma.png
Sanma
Master Attendant…… please, I leave Strawberry Daifuku in your care.
Master Attendant felt a chill run down his spine when he heard Sanma saying it with such a low voice.
Starry Sky Day 2, Early Noon - Forgotten Courtyard
Because they left the school in the evening, heading straight to the Forgotten Courtyard without a rest will mean that they'll reach the place late at night. So they decided to spend a night in the town inn that they chanced by on their way, then resumed their trip to the Courtyard.
Portrait-Strawberry Daifuku.png
Strawberry Daifuku
How pretty~! The cherry blossoms in Forgotten Courtyard are so amaziiing!
Once they finally arrived at the entrance of the Forgotten Courtyard, the group felt very impressed at the sight of all the cherry blossoms in full bloom.
Portrait-Ichi.png
Ichi
Visiting Forgotten Courtyard during cherry blossoms season! This is awesome! My decision to go with Master Attendant and friends are right after all!
Portrait-Rice.png
Rice
So pretty~! This is the first time I saw cherry blossoms like these~!
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
I've heard the rumor, but this is beyond my imagination......! This is worth the long trip we had to go through to reach this place.
Strawberry Daifuku was able to quickly blend in with everyone, so the trip turned out to be a fun one.

Nevertheless, Master Attendant still worried. How would this engagement turn out to be in the end......? No one know for sure.

Portrait-Champagne.png
Champagne
What's wrong? You look so gloom.
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
Champagne... of course I would look gloom. It's a good thing we managed to reach this place safely, but this trip is part of Tteokguk and Strawberry Daifuku's engagement deal, right?
Portrait-Champagne.png
Champagne
That's right.
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
What do you think of it, Champagne? If those two are to get married for real――I feel like we've done something pretty bad......
Portrait-Champagne.png
Champagne
I wonder? I wouldn't know anything about what can happen between a man and a woman.
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
T, that's so irresponsible of you......!
Seeing the shock on Master Attendant's face, Champagne's lips pursed into a cold smile.
Portrait-Champagne.png
Champagne
That guy isn't an idiot. He couldn't be planning to marry that little girl for real.
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
Eh!? Is, is that so!?
Portrait-Champagne.png
Champagne
But, there's still a possibility of that happening. So we shouldn't drop our guard and keep watch on him.
Champagne patted him on the back, but it made Master Attendant felt incredibly worried instead.

Hopefully nothing problematic will come out of this――he prayed so with all of his heart.

Portrait-Wonton.png
Wonton
Oh my, we have rare visitors today. Welcome to the Forgotten Courtyard.
Even though he said that, Wonton didn't seem surprised in the slightest when he welcomed Master Attendant's group.
Portrait-Tortoise Jelly.png
Tortoise Jelly
...... To think that you'll come here all of a sudden. One, two――just how many portion should I make prepare for today's lunch!? Oh, for crying out loud!!
Tortoise Jelly sounded irritated as he walked to the inner side of the Courtyard. Wonton had a smile plastered on his mien as he watched the other man leave.
Portrait-Wonton.png
Wonton
That guy, even though no one asked him, he immediately took the initiative to serve a feast for you guys, his acquaintances...... well, this place need at least one person like him, I guess.
Wonton directed a gentle smile and lightly bowed to the group.
Portrait-Wonton.png
Wonton
Well then, I will excuse myself here. Feel free to have a look around the Courtyard. If there's something you need, feel free to tell me.
After seeing Wonton leaving them, Tteokguk talked up to Strawberry Daifuku with a broad smile on his face.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
Well then, let's go over there! I heard there's a beautiful pair of songstress and musician over there!
Portrait-Strawberry Daifuku.png
Strawberry Daifuku
A pair of songstress and musician! I want to see them too! Let's all go together!
Portrait-Rice.png
Rice
Yes, let's go! Ichi will go too, right?
Portrait-Ichi.png
Ichi
Of course! Let's go together, guys!
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
Ah, everyone......! W, wait a min-……!
Master Attendant called out to them, but they didn't seem to notice and keep walking away.
Portrait-Champagne.png
Champagne
Let's go with them, Master Attendant.
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
Y, yeah...!
With hurried steps, Master Attendant and Champagne went after their companions.

When Master Attendant's group reached the place they were talking about, Sweet & Sour Fish was in the middle of performing a beautiful song.

Amazing! She has such wonderful voice!

Strawberry Daifuku
You're right! I agree with you, Rice!
Portrait-Ichi.png
Ichi
I'm really glad I decided to come with Master Attendant and you guys. It's not everyday we can hear a song as beautiful as this, after all!
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
True. My heart feels at peace when I listen to their performance.
Everyone let out a sigh of admiration as they listened to the girls' session.

Sweet & Sour Fish's pleasant singing voice resounded throughout the whole place, entrancing the group.

Then, after she's done singing a couple of songs, she heaved a sigh.

Portrait-Sweet & Sour Fish.png
Sweet & Sour Fish
...... Cloud, I feel that I have an easier time singing when I try to match it with the tune of your flute. As I've thought, you're truly special.
Portrait-Cloud Tea.png
Cloud Tea
No, it's simply because you have a splendid singing skill.
Portrait-Sweet & Sour Fish.png
Sweet & Sour Fish
You're not good at handling compliments, aren't you, Cloud? You should've just accept it.
Sweet & Sour Fish's eyes narrowed as she smiled softly. Her gaze on Cloud was one brimming with affection. Cloud, on the other hand, felt kind of awkward and cast her eyes down while sighing quietly.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
Both of them together sure makes a lovely picture. They're both really beautiful.
Portrait-Champagne.png
Champagne
If you like them so much, how about you try talking to them? They're much more realistic choice, compared to the little girl.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
Well...... appearance-wise, I suppose so.
That's true, Master Attendant agreed to the opinion as he nodded to himself.

Then, he heard someone greeted him from behind. Wondering who it was, he slowly turned around.

Portrait-Caviar.png
Caviar
Huh......? Master Attendant......?
Portrait-Milt.png
Milt
Why are you here?
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
Caviar and Milt? I can ask the same. Why are you guys here?
Portrait-Caviar.png
Caviar
We came to play in the Forgotten Courtyard. I think we've been here for three days, right?
Portrait-Milt.png
Milt
No! I! Came here! To play alone! But you selfishly followed me here!
Portrait-Caviar.png
Caviar
Selfishly? That's harsh. I came with you as your bodyguard because it'll be bad if something were to happen to you, Milt.
Portrait-Milt.png
Milt
That's why I told you! I don't need you to poke your nose in my business!
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
Awawawa......!
The two started quarreling in front of Master Attendant, causing him to get a little panicked.
Portrait-Toso.png
Toso
How noisy...... what's all the fuss about?
Portrait-Milt.png
Milt
Ah, Toso! Listen, he's......!
Portrait-Laba Congee.png

Hehe. People said that a spat is the evidence they get along with each other, after all.

Milt
Wha-......!?
Portrait-Qingtuan.png

Portrait-Milt.png

I told you, it's not like that! Geez! It's all your fault, Caviar!!
Portrait-Caviar.png
Caviar
Eh? Why is it my fault?
Portrait-Milt.png
Milt
It's because you followed me around!
Portrait-Caviar.png
Caviar
But it can't be helped. No one else want to follow you around except me.
Portrait-Milt.png
Milt
You're such a-!!!!!!!!
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
...... I'm glad to see that you're all doing well.
Portrait-Toso.png
Toso
So? What had happened to you? Coming all the way here... do you have a business to take care of here?
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
Well, yeah. That guy over there――his name's Tteokguk. He said he wanted to come here, so I took him here.
Portrait-Toso.png
Toso
Tteokguk......?
Toso sent Tteokguk, who was having fun chatting with Strawberry Daifuku and the others, a suspicious stare.
Portrait-Toso.png
Toso
Isn't that the man known for his act of ravaging through battlefields? He had a more uptight looks back then, though. Did something happen to him?
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
Is that true?
Master Attendant just became acquainted with Tteokguk yesterday. So he had no idea about what Tteokguk is like before.

I, I wonder about that. Are we......?
Master Attendant turned his gaze toward Tteokguk, and that was when their eyes made contact. A little surprised because of the surprisingly good timing, his eyes went wide.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
Master Attendant!
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
Y, yeah! What is it, Tteokguk?
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
Soon, this trip will finally reaches its end. You've been a great help to me.
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
N, no......! I don't really do anything significant.
To Master Attendant, who seemed a little flustered as he said that, Tteokguk showed a gentle smile.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
You know, Master Attendant. I've spent a long time in battlefields. It's because people wished for me to, and they'll jeer at me if I don't.
Tteokguk sounded indifferent as he told them about his background. What he experienced was so spectacular that it made Master Attendant became at loss for words.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
Right now, I'm spending my days peacefully. A lot had happened...... and that brought me to this point.
After saying that, Tteokguk cast his eyes down. Then, after letting out a small sigh, he bowed his head deeply.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
I must've surprised you when I suddenly said that I'll destroy Tierra. I'm truly sorry about that. Actually, I just wanted to frighten the people in the Guild of Chefs a little. Yes, that's all that I wanted.
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
Is that so......?
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
A night had passed anyway. So I have to put a stop to this lie.
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
L, lie......!?
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
Don't you know? The first day of Starry Sky month...... is called All Fools' Day. It's a day when we're allowed to spout little lies.
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
A, April Fools' Day, you say......
Perplexed, Master Attendant stared straight at Tteokguk.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
Strawberry Daifuku! Come here for a little bit.
Portrait-Strawberry Daifuku.png
Strawberry Daifuku
Yes, sir~!
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
With this, our little trip has finally end.
Portrait-Strawberry Daifuku.png
Strawberry Daifuku
Is that so......? It's over now......?
Portrait-Tteokguk.png

I really enjoyed these last two days I spent with you. I'm really thankful for it. ...... Also, there's something that I have to talk with you about. It's about our engagement.
Portrait-Strawberry Daifuku.png
Strawberry Daifuku
A, about that!
Standing on her tiptoes, Strawberry Daifuku looked up at Tteokguk with a serious look on her face.
Portrait-Strawberry Daifuku.png
Strawberry Daifuku
You see, I'm still a kid, so I still don't really understand about marriage and stuffs. But, I do like you, Tteokguk. That's why...... please give me some time!
Strawberry Daifuku's big beady eyes got even bigger as she stared still at Tteokguk.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
Thank you, Strawberry Daifuku. I appreciate your kindness.
Patting Strawberry Daifuku's head, Tteokguk's lips formed a gentle smile.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
You're right, after you've grown a bit more...... and if by then I'm still a single man, let's have a proper engagement..
At his words, Strawberry Daifuku's expression immediately changed into that of a big smile.
Portrait-Strawberry Daifuku.png
Strawberry Daifuku
...... Yeah! Alright! I'll look forward to it!
Strawberry Daifuku declared so vigorously, while everyone present watched over them with warm eyes.

Ichi
But it was really fun! Let's go play together like that again someday!
After saying that, Ichi left them, still looking energetic as ever. Watching him left, Master Attendant then turned his attention to the rest of the group.
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
So what will you do after this, Tteokguk, Champagne? You can come to our place if you want.
Portrait-Rice.png
Rice
It'll be nice if both of you can come! I'm sure everyone will be happy!
At her words, Champagne let out a small sigh.
Portrait-Champagne.png
Champagne
I'm grateful for your offer, but…… I have to go back soon. I'm not exactly have much free time, you see.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
I have to go home too. But I was able to spend a pleasant vacation. It's all thanks to you, Master Attendant.
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
Ha, haha…… well, if you find it pleasant, then that's good……
Can't find the energy to get angry at him, Master Attendant could only languidly answer so.
Portrait-Champagne.png
Champagne
Well then, Master Attendant. See you again, somewhere else.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
I'll be excusing myself too. I shall look forward to the day where we can meet again.
After saying that, the two walked away. Seeing them leave make Master Attendant feel that what happened in the last two days was like a passing storm.
Portrait-Rice.png
Rice
Master Attendant! Let's hurry and get back home!!
Portrait-Master Attendant.png
Master Attendant
Yeah, you're right. Seems like... I'll be able to sleep peacefully today.
Master Attendant let out a deep sigh, then, together with Rice, walked to where his restaurant is.
Champagne was all quiet as he walked, his coat billowed in the wind. Equally quiet as he walked next to him was none other than Tteokguk.
Portrait-Champagne.png
Champagne
…… You've gotten mellow, huh, Tteokguk.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
Was I that violent while I was active in the battlefield? It makes me a little embarrassed to hear such comments.
Portrait-Champagne.png
Champagne
Think about it yourself―― though, well, it was…… already something of a very old past.
Champagne then came to a stop. Turning his head, he sent a sharp glare toward Tteokguk.
Portrait-Champagne.png
Champagne
The trip ends here, but…… in the end, did it went just like what you wanted?
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
Like what I wanted…… you say. What do you mean?
Portrait-Champagne.png
Champagne
Why do you think I would bother coming along in this boring trip? It's so that I can take care of you whenever you decide to went violent.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
That offends me a little. I'm no longer the same as before... as when I was still active in the battlefield. I won't go violent again.
Portrait-Champagne.png
Champagne
Heh. You say so, but you seemed to be pretty cautious of your surroundings?
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
…… That's a habit that I got from my days in the battlefield. You know what they said: old habits die hard.
Portrait-Champagne.png
Champagne
Oh well. Whatever you say.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
But it's true. I really... just want to make them feel a little troubled. Because there was once a Master Attendant who had a hard time because of the Guild of Chefs.
Portrait-Champagne.png
Champagne
―― So it was for revenge?
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
It wasn't something so exaggerated. Just part of All Fools' Day joke. Isn't it fine? I'm finally allowed to have fun like this.
Tteokguk said with a bright look on his face. Seeing his expression, Champagne shook his head instead of giving him a verbal response.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
Seems like you're not convinced. Then, let me add another reason to that.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
It's because Strawberry Daifuku―― because she's too innocent. I don't want her to become like me.
He doesn't want her to suffer just like how his heart feel tormented due to the battles he went through. I don't want her innocent smile to disappear from her face…… Tteokguk confessed so.
Portrait-Champagne.png
Champagne
Hmph. That's much more believable. But, I won't show any mercy to anyone who threaten the safety of this land. Be it humans, Fallen Angels, or even fellow Food Souls.
After saying that, Champagne started walking away again. Looking at his back, Tteokguk let out a laugh.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
You…… are just like me, Champagne. You've grown much more mellow, compared to the you that I once saw in the battlefield.
Heaving out a long sigh, Tteokguk then looked up at the crimsoning sky.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
Time is kind―― it will ease us from even the most painful memory, someday.
Even the memory that painfully pierced his chest no longer bothered Tteokguk for too much now. He's feeling really grateful for that.
Portrait-Tteokguk.png
Tteokguk
Well then, I suppose I have to return too―― to the Taoist temple. Bibimbap is waiting for me…… maybe.
