Black tea with a lot of ice was perfect for a hot summer.
“They are not surprised, huh?”
Joshua and Martha looked curiously at the three siblings who were enjoying the snacks.
What was so surprising about fruit tarts and iced tea? The siblings wondered.
“……Ah! Come to think of it, it may be our first time drinking black tea chilled with ice (in this world).”
In this world, refrigerators, which were commonly used in their previous life, did not exist.
In Palace, they would cut the ice into blocks during winter, store it, and use it carefully.
Using it to cool drinks was too extravagant, so they had never done it.
“I was pretty lucky to be able to get my hand on a good quality magic stone.”
Joshua took a small box from Martha.
Something else seemed to be in the box containing the sweets.
As soon as the lid was opened, a whoosh of cold air blew into the room.
“This stone is a magic stone that can store a magician’s powers.
It is very valuable because even in the Kingdom, there is only one magic stone vein, and the country has a tight hold on it.
This one has ice magic stored in it.
That’s why I asked Martha to use it to make ice.”
The slightly bluish magic stone had lowered the room temperature.
It was cold enough to make ice in such a short time.
When Joshua closed the box lid, the cold air dissipated like it never existed.
“Eh? What was that, amazing! It’s like magic!”
“Because it is magic.”
Joshua agreed with satisfaction seeing that Emma was innocently delighted.
The three siblings, who had only known poverty, had never seen or heard of magic stones, but it seemed that kind of thing also existed in this world.
It’s a world of fantasy.
“Most magic stones are used to maintain the barrier, so these things are rare.
Although long ago, there were shops in the royal capital that stocked them.
Didn’t Emma-sama say that Robert-sama‘s slime jelly was chilly and delicious?”
Now that Joshua mentioned it, you need to cool and solidify jelly when making it.
Emma just ate it enjoyably without thinking, but it turned out to be jelly chilled with magic. Slime jelly~ It was so delicious~…
“After seeing how Emma-sama looked when having delicious food, I desperately searched for the stone.
It was a little costly, though.”
Emma, who was absentmindedly thinking about jelly, didn’t hear Joshua’s murmuring.
“Is this magic stone such a priceless item? My grandfather also has something similar.
It’s a light orange stone that is slightly warm.
In winter, he often puts the kairo inside a haramaki,” Martha muttered while looking at the small box containing the magic stone.
[T/N 1: Kairo are pocket heaters, which are small, portable sachets containing liquid or powder that, when activated, release heat to help the user stay warm
T/N 2: Haramaki is a traditional Japanese undergarment worn around the belly to keep warm in winter.
Literally translated as bellyband.]
“Hm? Martha? Just now, what did you say?”
Joshua looked at Martha puzzledly.
“Oh, I’m sorry! There’s no way Joshua-sama‘s magic stone and my grandfather’s kairo can be the same, isn’t it?”
A little of Joshua’s money must be a huge sum.
Martha hurriedly apologized for saying such a rude thing.
“No, that’s not it.
The word kaino? and hararaki? Was it? It was hard to catch…”
“Eh? Um… Did you mean kairo and haramaki?”
“Joshua? Isn’t your hearing too awful? It’s kairo and haramaki, okay?”
“Karoi and harikiri?”
“…………Joshua, can you please go see a doctor?”
Joshua just couldn’t catch the words kairo and haramaki no matter what.
Maybe he was tired.
They became a little worried.
Even though he could converse about other things just fine, why only kairo and haramaki……? ……!
