After having thought for a while, Baron Mayor looked at me decisively.

「Cristea-sama, I think that I would like to go ahead with your idea. Although the profits from the sales of the sachets would be low, it will return later as a big profit in a different way」

Yes, yes. He’s got the「Lose some, gain more」mind.

Well then, shall we go with the last proposition?

「Otousama, I would like to donate all of the money I will earn from the royalties to the charity. Would that be all right with you?」
「「Cristea-sama!?」」

Baron Mayor and Mariel-chan looked at me in surprise.

「You are fine with that?」

After a while of silence, Otousama inquired to make sure.

「Yes. It’s something I made on a whim in the first place. It’s the Mayor Company intends to tie it to a business. Baron Mayor listened to my selfish charity proposition, so I would like to recompense him」

I replied with a smile.

「Cristea-sama, how wonderfully kind-hearted you are…」

Baron Mayor said, deeply moved.

No, no, I am not that wonderful, really.
Even though I made it on a whim, you wanted to pay me money just for that idea, that really felt painful. I mean, even though those sachets may be easy to make, won’t the people mass producing them have it difficult from now on?
It might be my proposition, mass producing something like this for someone like me who has no embroidery or sewing sense would be impossible. Absolutely impossible. Therefore, in order to express my respect for those people, I think I would like to donate in such manner.

「If you are fine with it, then I don’t mind. Baron Mayor, please do as she said. However, make sure to periodically report how much of my daughter’s part was donated」
「Y, yes! Certainly!」

As expected of Otousama, he understands.
I don’t think that Baron Mayor is someone who would fill his pockets like this, but that was just in case because he’s dealing with a child like me.
Otousama who is of a higher status than Baron Mayor and my guardian wanted to prevent injustice… I think.

「Well then, I will promptly come up with a contract, so we will excuse ourselves. I will bring it in the near future」
「I will let my wife cooperate with the abbey. She has some knowledge about this stuff, so I will have her write a letter of introduciton」
「Thank you very much for everything. Well then, see you another day」
「Umu」

I stopped Mariel-chan who bowed and wanted to follow after the leaving Baron Mayor.

「Mariel-sama, please come by again. Please stay longer the next time? I would like to talk with you slowly」

Yes, thoroughly about our past lives.

「Y, yes! Gladly, gladly! Thank you very much!」

Mariel-chan must have had the same feelings as she replied delightfully.

「I am glad, well then. Here you go. A souvenir. It’s just a little though…」

I handed her a wrapped up object. When I whispered「It’s Dorayaki」to her, she extremely joyfully hugged it close to her chest and replied「I will eat it alone like a treasure!」. She was skipping a little while walking, so she must have been quite happy.
Fufu, this taste of nostalgia, please enjoy!
