V1 Chapter 19 | The Dessert is a Rabbit

Dinner is safely finished and the dishes are put down.

“I bought some apples, do you want some?”

“An after-dinner dessert. I’ll eat it.”

With a knife in hand, I try to peel an apple.

But Himekawa comes next to me and takes the apple from my hand.

“I’ll do it.”

I wonder if the fact that the meat and potatoes were so well done earlier has ignited some kind of fire in her.

The apple that was so vigorously taken away from me is now in Himekawa’s small hand.

Well, anyone can peel an apple.

“Then, I’ll leave it to you. I’ll prepare the bath.”

After leaving the kitchen, I head to the bathroom and quickly wash the bathtub.

Even though it is a boarding house, there isn’t have a large bathroom and is quite ordinary. The changing room and washing area are a little spacious, but not that spacious.

Two or three adults could probably enter the bathtub together. It is also quite old, and I would like to renovate it if possible.

Two or three adults could probably enter the bathtub together. And it is quite old, so I would like to remodel it if possible.

“I finished this one.”

When I returned to the kitchen, Himekawa was waiting for me, reading a magazine.

“It’s perfectly done.”

On the plate was an apple disguised as a rabbit.

Eight of them in total. Their figures were slightly distorted but never disintegrated.
All of them look like rabbits. I picked one up and put it in my mouth.

I take a bite. Yes, it tastes exactly like an apple.

It’s a perfect rabbit that makes the best use of the apple. There is no problem, rather it is delicious.

“It’s delicious”

I say a few words to Himekawa, and she takes a bite.

“Yeah, it’s delicious.”

For some reason, Himekawa eats the rabbit while looking at me the whole time.

I’m a little concerned and embarrassed that she’s looking at me the whole time. ……

“What are you looking at?”

“Where Tendo-kun is eating”

“Why not?

“Because you’re eating something made only by me.”

“Suit yourself.”

I stand up from my seat with another mouthful of rabbit in my mouth.

It’s time to wash the dishes.

I dip the sponge in detergent and start washing the dishes I’ve used.

“Moreover…”

Himekawa speaks to me over my back.

“I ate dinner with someone, have dessert, and be told it was delicious.”

My hands stop washing dishes.

I thought it would be fine when I was alone, but then I thought it would be nice to eat with someone else.”

I hear her getting up from her seat.

Himekawa comes up next to me with her arms rolled up.

“Well, let’s finish washing up together, shall we?”

I start washing dishes with a slight smile on my face.

“Okay, I’ll leave some to you”

“Yes, leave it to me.”

In a steady stream, the used dishes are cleaned and the wiped dishes are moved to the washing basket.

The two-person job was efficient, and the work was completed in a flash.

The rabbit on the plate also disappeared into the stomach, and the event of today’s dinner came to an end.

Tomorrow, we will be able to go to school without any problems.




“Tendo-kun, do you mind if I take a bath first?”

I was late. I would have gone in first today if I could have, so I could relax!

What happens if I say ‘I’ll go in first’ here?

I mean, as a caretaker, don’t I have to give priority to the residents? I suddenly think.

“I think it should be boiling soon, so check the temperature and if it’s OK, you can go in.

“Thanks. And is it okay if I use the washing machine at night?”

“It’s all right. I don’t want it to be late at night, but before ten o’clock is fine.”

“Thank you. I’ll be back in a minute.”

Himekawa leaves the kitchen. I hear her running up the stairs.

I’ll start school tomorrow, so I might as well get ready for school first.

I go back to my room, my school bag in hand, and check my classes.

–Bururururururu [TLN: Phone Ringtone SFX]

The sound of the phone vibrating was transmitted to my body. Hm? Incoming call?

I take my phone out of my pocket and look at the screen.

The screen reads, “Father”

I just talked to him yesterday.

“Yes, this is Tsukasa.”

When I picked up the phone, there was no response from the other end for just a few seconds.

“Tsukasa, what the hell did you do?”

I didn’t know what it meant. What did I do?

“What do you mean, what did I do?”

I just got a call from a lawyer named Imai-san.

That’s the reason? Oh, I completely forgot to contact him about it.

I’m sorry.

I briefly explained the situation and told Mr. Imai that I had given him my father’s contact information.

“That’s right. I’m sorry I forgot to contact you.”

“I’ll go there with Imai-san next time. I’ll call you before I go. That’s all.

I tried to speak one last word, but he hung up before I could.

As usual, my father only tells me what he needs me to do.

Well, I don’t like to talk too long about unnecessary things, and this is better for me.

However, I never thought that Imai-san and my father would come together.

Well, okay. If they come, I’ll be able to make it work.
