C.1533 – Intermission: Baby Castellas Beginnings
I will return to the continuation of Isis Extra Chapters tomorrow.
This is a story of when the Six Kings were still living with Kuromueina in the Central Demon Realm.
Shalltear was cooking in the kitchen of Kuromueinas home when Isis and Kuromueina arrived.
[That smells good Shalltear Are you making something?]
[Unnn? Yes, I kinda felt like eating some, so Im making baby castellas.]
[Baby castellas? Is that some snack from the world Shalltear lived in?]

[Thats right. Well, theyre just simple confectioneries, so it might be possible that it already exists in this world, just having a different name, but in my world, this confectionery Im making was called baby castella. Since youre here, Kuro-san, Isis-san, would you like to have some?]
Shalltear is a being who came from another world, possessing knowledge unlike those Kuromueina and the others know. She would sometimes cook on a whim like this, and it was quite fascinating for Kuromueina, Isis, and even for Ein, who isnt present at the moment.
This time too, she had made baby castellas, which were unfamiliar to Isis and Kuromueina, and Alice and put them on a plate in front of the two.
[Ahh delicious It has a very gentle taste.]
[The dish is simple, but its pretty good, isnt it? The dishes that were elaborately made with all sorts of techniques certainly may be good, but even if that were the case, simple stuff like this can be the most delicious Wait, Kuro-san? Is it not to your liking?]
After eating a baby castella, Isis had a smile on her face, while Kuromueina, her eyes closed, froze where she sat. Wondering what was going on, Shalltear asked while tilting her head, and after a few moments, Kuromueinas eyes opened wide.
[Its this! This is it!!!]
[That? What is?]
[This is exactly what Ive been looking for! Reasonably sized, gentle and easy to eat, simple yet profound, this is the snack Ive been looking for!]
[U- Unnn? I dont really know whats going on, but Im glad you liked it.]
Despite feeling somewhat bewildered by Kuromueinas unusual excitement, Shalltear, thinking all is well if she liked it, thought that this matter is concluded and was about to return to cooking, but immediately after that, Kuromueinas swiftly placed her hands on Shalltears shoulders.
[Shalltear, what kind of confectionery is this baby castella?]
[W- What kind? No, its just a simply baked confectionery made with flour and eggs If you liked them that much, I can give you the recipe, you know? Its so easy that anyone can make it as long as they have the ingredients and a baking mold.]
[Anyone can easily make this taste. A- Amazing. Are there other variations or options for this?]
[Well, since it has a simple taste, it also makes it possible for various possibilities of application. You can put chocolate inside it while baking, or you can also knead something into the dough.]
[You can put it in a paper bag and easily carry it around.]
[I can carry it in one hand and eat it whenever I want W- What ground-breaking item this is]
Seeing Kuromueina praising so much in a way theyve never seen before, Shalltear, as well as Isis, looked surprised.
Due to the overwhelming enthusiasm and praise from Kuromueina, with a complicated expression on her face, Shalltear decided to intentionally say random things.
[You can go on a platform and eat it on a moonlit night to have it as tsukimi baby castella.]
(T/N: Shes basically changing tsukimi dango.)
[C- Changing with the circumstances H- How adaptable is this!?]
[When youre talking, you can intentionally mistakenly say Its heavy cocktail, to which another would throw out a No, its baby castella tsukkomi, which has the effect of livening up the conversation.]
[I- It even has the effect of facilitating communication Its possibilities are infinite!!!]
[No matter what I say, youre gonna give them high praises huh. You like them that much]
As Shalltear watched Kuromueina in a state of overwhelming praise, despite the random things she blurted out, she had an indescribable expression on her face.
It was difficult for Kuromueina herself to explain how she feels, but to put it simply, it was a situation where she had encountered the food that perfectly matched her preferences after a long period of time. Her eyes sparkled with excitement and looked deeply moved.
[I knew the moment I tasted it. Baby castellas have endless possibilities!]
[Errr Shalltear Is that how it is?]
[No, even back in my previous world, Ive never heard anyone say things like baby castellas having infinite possibilities]
[Its decided! I have decided! I will pursue the infinite possibilities of the baby castellas!!! And then, I will come across a multitude of baby castellas!!!]
[Ahh, that so. Yeah, do your best there Then, Ill be excusing myself here]
Shalltear, feeling that things were going to be troublesome, tried to leave the scene after giving a noncommittal response, but Kuromueina quickly swooped in front of her.
In terms of ability, Kuromueina is superior to Shalltear, and its impossible to escape from Kuromueina when shes serious.
[Hey, Shalltear. Tell me more about baby castellas please?]
[I have a bad feeling about this! You kinda look like Ein-san when I taught her about maids!!! I guess a servant would really resemble her master huh? Id prefer if you both dont involve me in this]
[Thank you, Shalltear! Well then, the two of us, lets talk about the possibilities of baby castellas!]
[Did you even listen to what I said just now!? Where in the heck did I say I agreed!!!?]
Kuromueina going into a frenzy with her eyes sparkling is extremely unusual, or rather, it was something both the newcomer Shalltear and her long-time family Isis were seeing for the first time. Anyhow, just like that, she cheerfully dragged away the shrieking Shalltear.
Serious-senpai : [I see, this marks the day the Baby Castella Demon was born No, including that maid matter, isnt that all your fault!!!?]
? ? ? : [I mean, I didnt know random stuff like that would bite me in the ass like that! Heck, I still dont know what drives Kuro-san that much Rather, Alice-chan is a victim here, okay? A victim.]
