It’s because I’m a Butler
Our Maid and Butler Tea House was doing quite well.
Everyone served the customers steadily.
That’s to be expected from my Maid group, but Ryuka and Luna also improved dramatically.
Even though Ryuka was shy at first and Luna was unsure of herself, they performed their maid roles perfectly once the customers arrived.
And as expected, Luke was really popular.
The girls requesting Luke’s service had to form a separate line.
Ryuushin and I also got some requests occasionally.
When it’s my turn, I practiced my newly found mind-reading skills so I can serve them fully.
“May I take your order?”
“Hmm, let’s see…”
‘I want this chiffon cake, but it looks a little too big.’
I could steadily grasp the other party’s thoughts now.
“Would you like to have this chiffon cake? It may seem quite large, but it is very fluffy, so Miss can also finish it.”
“Alright, then I’ll have that, please!”
“I understand. Please wait for a moment.”
Thanks to my mind-reading, serving customers was a breeze.
But I’m also invading their privacy, so I had to choose the timing carefully.
There was no such thing as privacy protection in this world, so there was no need to be conscientious about it. Charles had been reading my mind since ages ago.
However, even if she’s my sister, it was very unpleasant to have my thoughts read without my consent.
So I plan to use this skill only when it is necessary.
However, if it is in battle, I would know the opponent’s attacks by reading their mind. This skill is very valuable in the face of war.
So I use my customers as practice targets, and in exchange, I would serve them to the best of my ability.
“Excuse me, can I request your service again?”
The first girl I served earlier came back again.
“It is currently my shift, so you do not have to submit a request.”
“Is that so? Then, thank you.”
‘I’m glad, coz I don’t have that much pocket money left.’
The services and products in our teahouse had twice the price of an ordinary café. This was due to the added value of the extraordinary set-up that customers can’t experience during regular days.
Service requests were especially expensive.
Members were also prioritized when receiving customers. They don’t have to pay the service request fee, too.
Since service requests are charged, there are also extra services for the customers who availed them.
These include writing a letter of thanks for their patronage, then handing it over; getting spoon-fed, taking pictures together, and so on.
Luke had to do all these things with all the girls who requested his service. Seems like he had it rough.
Well, it can’t be helped, since he’s popular.
I’m not envious.
I have Tina and the others.
I’m not envious. This is important, so I had to say it twice.
Alright, I have to get back to work.
“Welcome back, Miss.”
“I, I’m home.”
The Maid and Butler Teahouse was quite popular, so a long line formed outside.
Despite that, she still queued just to return.
What is it that she wants?
“Have you decided on your order?”
“Ah, yes! Ah, hmm…”
‘I want to talk to you! – as if I can say that. Besides, he’s still in the middle of work…’
Oh, so she wanted to talk to me.
I’m not frequently requested for, and the shop also seems to be doing well right now.
If it’s just a bit, then it is fine, I guess.
“Miss is the first customer to return, so if it is alright, can we talk for a little while?”
“Yes. I’m Halt Ernol.”
“I, I’m Sasha Glen— no, no, it’s just Sasha!”
‘That was dangerous… He’ll find out I’m royalty if he heard the name Glendale!’
Oops, what a huge bomb.
This Sasha girl standing before me is part of this kingdom’s royal family.
If I’m not mistaken, His Majesty has a younger sister.
If it’s someone with the same age as Sasha, then I can only think of that sister.
But that princess had a weak constitution, and she had never shown herself in public.
What’s happening here?
“So it’s Miss Sasha. Thank you very much for your patronage, and for visiting the shop twice. Please pardon my rudeness, but may I ask for what reason did you come to request my service again?”
‘Thanks to the Leaf of Yggdrasil, I now recovered fully! Halt made it possible for Elder Brother to have those Leaves. For that, I am truly grateful. I would like to thank you —as if I can say this too….’
Sasha bowed her head.
So that’s the reason.
Sickly Sasha recovered thanks to the Leaves of Yggdrasil sent by the Elven Kingdom of Alheim.
That’s good to hear.
So, Sasha’s wish was to thank me, huh.
It is the butler’s duty to fulfill the wishes of his master.
I bend down and whispered in Sasha’s ear.
“My eldest brother is the Captain of the Imperial Guards. Due to the kindness of His Majesty, we have an idea about your circumstances, more or less. I am grateful that you have safely recovered, Your Highness Sasha.”
I revealed that I knew who she really was.
Ah, even if this matter reaches Eldest Brother, Cain will do something about it with that extreme intuition of his.
‘So he knew that I am a princess? So it’s fine even if I thank him, right?’
Sasha faced me. She had the same eyes as the King of Glendale
“I can now go outside, and I owe it all to you. You have my utmost gratitude.”
“Thank you for your kind words, Your Highness.”
“Ahm, pardon me, but I would like to converse with you more. Would it be possible to call on you after the school festival ends?”
“Of course. However, you have just recovered. Would you like me to visit you, instead?”
“No, I’m fine. I have fully recovered. Besides, it is lovely to walk around like this.”
‘I can’t tell Halt that I had shaken off my escort just to meet him.’
Hey, what are you doing!?
If he’s an escort of royalty, then he must be an Imperial Knight.
For her to shake him off…
“If you are alone, then please, bring this with you.”
I took a magical tool, which was shaped like a bracelet, from my pocket.
“Pardon me, but what is this?”
“It is a protective magical tool that is activated when you are in danger.”
I analyzed Tina’s protective amulet that was given by that Hero, and the magical equipment I found in Yggdrasil’s dungeons. Based on them, I created a tool that can store magic in the same way.
Of course, it did not have the same level of protective magic as the original.
I can only incorporate a few flaming knights inside.
However, it can stall time when they were attacked by a strong enemy.
I also gave one each to my whole family.
I also carry one for myself.
Since I had a spare, I also gave it to Sasha.
“Thank you so much… But why are you doing this?”
That’s only natural.
“I’m Miss’s Butler, after all.”
