My Engagement was Annulled (lol) – Chapter 16

Did you say cake?

I’m hungry………
I want to visit Capital’s famous stores after going out! Is what I thought, but my heart crumbled and we returned immediately.
My mouth feels desolate with just a black tea.

………… What do I do…………

Bam!

「Eh?」

The door suddenly opened.
After I reflexively let out a voice and looked towards the origin of the noise, there was Anise with a tray in her hands.

………?
…………… Oh my? Looking carefully, there seems to be some kind of food on the tray?

「Elise-sama! Head Chef has baked a cake!」

Ha? Did you just say………… ca ……… ke………?
In this world that doesn’t have buttercream………… no, wait a moment.
Wasn’t it something like a pound cake? I have a faint memory in my mind.

With rough breathing, Anise placed the tray on the table.
Thor Oniisama is staring at it too.

………… It does look like a pound cake.
I can tell that it has dried fruits in it.
Just, how do I say this……… it’s more like Castella, no, like Castella with dried fruits.

A slice on a plate was placed in front of me.
Of course, in front of Thor Oniisama too.

I do feel hungry, so let’s eat.
Sampling time!

「Thank you」

Munch!
Sweet~~~~~~!

………… It was a bread mixed with plenty of honey, dried fruits, and egg yolk.
It didn’t feel like bread since there’s lots of egg yolk though.
But, well it’s too sweet.

「Anise, this…… what is it?」

「Yes! Elise-sama said once before that you would like to eat sweet bread with plenty of honey, dried fruits mixed with eggs. I remembered about it this morning and requested Head Chef to make it. Though this only the second one he made, it’s truly sweet and tasty!」

Somehow, I feel guilty!

「It indeed is sweet and tasty」

When I slowly turned my head towards Thor Oniisama, he was stuffing his cheeks with a melting smile.
No, just now! He finished eating it all!

No, she said that this was the second one!
What about the first one! I have to know!

「Second one…… what happened to the first one?」

Anise laughed.

「Head Chef sampled it, and then said『Let’s increase the amount of honey and egg yolk, and chop the dried fruits a little more』and『let’s leave the rest balanced as is』. We have divided the first one between ourselves. Although I don’t understand what you meant by confections very much, you were talking about this, weren’t you!」

「Hmmm, confections…… huh……」

! Thor Oniisama, you seem to have some misgivings!

「Yes……」

I ate the cake while strangely breaking in sweat.
