A Cook


I had the silky, Kinue-san, learn the [Cooking] skill that Rokuko got from gacha.
As for the results…

“You became good at cooking?”
“Also, the time it takes to cook has become instant… Relatively.”

From what Kunue-san said, along with compensating for her cooking, it also seems to stop time for everything other than her cooking while she is cooking. So the person herself will be properly cooking, but everything around her would see it as immediate. It also doesn’t appear to work for anything other than cooking.

“… Even while boiling?”
“Yes, I can’t do anything else. I cannot do something like room cleaning while it is boiling. But if it’s something like putting away cooking utensils, I can do that.”

That’s harsh.
But really, space-time magic that’s limited by cooking?
First off, let’s prepare some ingredients and see what it’s like.
I took out a recipe and some ingredients with DP. She’ll make strawberry shortcake.
I invited Ichika and Meat over to act as food samplers. I didn’t call her, but Rokuko came too.

“It’s a skill I got you know? Wouldn’t I always want to see it?”
“Well, you would’ve come anyway even if there was’t a reason.”
“… Rather, invite me properly! Wouldn’t I feel like I was being excluded?”

Rokuko sulked. Let’s call her over as well next time.

“I’ll make it, then. First is the preparations and… done. I am finished.”
“Fast! That wasn’t even ten seconds!?”

There was a beautiful strawberry shortcake in front of us. However, it wasn’t that the cake had simply appeared all on its own. There were traces that the oven made from phoenix eggshell fragments was used as well.
It was sliced up immediately. White cream and yellow fluff, with a beautiful layer of red strawberries on top. Looks delicious.

“It really was an instant. It’s more amazing than I thought.”
“Y’know, Goshujin-sama, could ya give Kinue-san to me?”
“To Ichika? Hahaha, of course not.”
“Tch, unfortunate~”

By the way, as far as the inn is concerned, it was decided that Rei, Kinue-san, and Nerune had all three come to be Rokuko’s subordinates. They were treated as my juniors.
Ichika was my senior in the respect that she had come to the dungeon before me, but Ichika is my slave. There’s no way I could do something like giving my junior to a slave.

“… From my point of view, an hour has passed since I began preparations. I think not being able to do anything but cooking would be hard for ordinary humans? I am alright with it because I am a housework fairy, though.”
“That’s… a considerably severe limitation.”

It’d probably be a godly skill for people that love cooking. I should say it’s the ideal skill for a cook huh? They could spend however much time they want on cooking.
… It’s a good thing I didn’t use it myself. It’d be different if I could have used it on sleeping though.

“Kehma, this is amazingly delicious!”
“It’s so sweet, like it’s melting, nom nom…”

Rokuko and Meat had immediately filled their mouths with cake. A great way to eat.
I’ll eat some too. Thinking that, I looked for the cake… huh, there’s none?

“Ah, sorry. This is the last piece.”

Right then, Rokuko was stabbing the final piece of cake with her fork.

“Oi, seriously? You guys really eat fast. I wanted to eat too…”
“There’s no helping it, then. Here.”

Rokuko came at me, aiming the fork-pierced piece of cake at me.
… Everyone’s lines of sight assembled towards me. This, is is that? The ‘Aaah’ encounter?

“Hey, open your mouth.”
“… No, hand over the fork.”
“If you don’t open your mouth, I’ll eat it!”

What kind of threat is that? But I want to eat cake… Kuh. As expected, Rokuko’s gotten smart. I wonder if something happened like her leveling up?

“I got it, now that it’s come to this I have to use my last resort…”
“Un, now, submissively be thrusted.” [1]
“But I refuse! Rokoku, don’t think things will just easily go your way!”

I turned my back to Rokuko and spoke to Kinue-san.

“Kinue-san, please do it again.”
“Yes, I’ll do it n—… done.”

A second cake finished in an instant. Yep, seeing it a second time, that [Cooking] skill really is amazing.

“Meat, Ichika, we need to eat that one too! Help me!”
“Itadakimasu!” [2]
“It’s bad for Goshujin-sama, but it’s Rokuko-sama’s order~. It can’t be helped~!”

All three of them attacked the new shortcake.
However, I simply allowed them to do it. As for why…

“I’ll take the remaining ones, then.”

Rokuko’s cheeks were filled with shortcake. There were three other whole shortcakes… The answer why is simple. I ordered her to make four with my fingers. Our oven can easily cook four at a time after all.
As expected, they weren’t able to eat four more. I also couldn’t eat too much, so I wound up putting them in [Storage]. One will be a present to Rei and Nerune, who aren’t here.

I immediately isolated a piece with my fork.
Though it was true that the ingredients bought with DP were superior, Kinue-san’s skill in cooking was also really good. I missed this flavor, it’s like the cakes I had eaten before coming to this other world.

“Delicious. It wouldn’t even be outdone by the cakes sold in Japanese shops.”
“I am honored to receive your praise, master.”

Kinue-san bloomed with a smile.

“Gu, f-fine Kehma! But remember, this [Cooking] skill is something I got, in other words it’s my achievement!”
“Nom nom nom…”
“Ha~n, I ate somethin’ good, happiness. High class with plenty of sugar, too amazin’…”

Yeah, cake is a sugary luxury, huh. Let’s sell some to the saintess. I wonder what cost would be good? About ten gold for a piece?
Looking outside as I thought about it, it was snowing.

Winter, huh.

… Ah, come to think of it, what did the village’s name wind up being?
Ooi Gozoh. You sure you want to leave it as Gozoh+Roppu’s Love Love Village~?

    Thanks for the chapter

  2. k says:

    thank for the update

  3. IReallyCANTSEEMTOPOST says:

    Oh god. The feel of this chapter and the end of the last chapter make me feel as though the Holy country will stop the blessing on the saintess, then when she dies, she’ll die for good. Since what happened to meat, happened and the way our MC is, this can happen O:

    • I think she’s the saintess because she has (was born with most likely) that blessing, not the other way around. Thus, they can’t “revoke” what they never gave in the first place. Alka is quite pitiful with such a blessing (curse).

      • Seregosa says:

        I don’t think that’s the case? They revive at an altar, it’s probably something “granted by the god of light” or whatever to saintesses recognized in the church. Either that or a special spell. Not saying your idea is impossible though, i just believe this thing is more likely. After all, it was common knowledge in her country that a saintess would be able to resurrect at an altar, that means that all saintesses, or at least most, should be able to do the same.

        • Anonymous says:

          Nah, the altar is the one that her attendant carries, it also said she had the skill beforehand and that was why they gave her a bunch of other crap, because she wouldn’t lose it if she “died.”

          I’m thinking more along the lines of they’ll withdraw financial support, and he’ll blackmail her into becoming a part of the dungeon.

    Thank you for your hard work!!! ヽ(≧∇≦)ノ

  5. chopin124 says:

    Uwaaaah thankee for the chapters!!! 😀

  6. kirindas says:

    Thanks for the new chapter!

  7. Raphalice says:

    Wait… It was actually temporarily set up as that name!?

    Oh Boy! XD

    The Nanashi Village I guess XD

    “Haku’s Vacation” Village

    Leg Day Village

    Golem Village

    Golden Saucer

    • Name moniker says:

      Las Vegas?
      He seems intent to make the village a tourist trap of gambling so that seems lore friendly

    • Sodemas says:

      “Nanashi village” why does it sound to me like something that would be full of lolies?~

      • Ori says:

        Well it already has two of the smallest type, 4 if the little witch and house fairy are as well.

        • Seregosa says:

          the witch, house fairy and vampire are not lolis. Look at the illustrations. Actually, rokuko isn’t a loli either in those illustrations, but it seems she is in this version. So, in the LN(I guess the pics are from there), there’s 1 loli(meat) and in this one there’s 2 lolis, rokuko and meat.

      • Seregosa says:

        If I remember correctly, nanashi(no name) was used by the mc in death march when playing hero or something like that? one of his identities when he wants to do something like killing a demon king. That mc is also cursed by being eternally surrounded by lolis, while the “real” hero is cursed to be forever surrounded by beautiful big boob bimbos.

  8. Roaming Reader says:


    Are the pronouns right for this bit?
    Ichika was my senior in the respect that she had come to the dungeon before me, but Ichika is my slave

    • T.Y says:

      Isn’t it because ichika really did visit ‘ordinary cave’ dungeon way before he was summoned? She had quite high of a rank as an adventurer before, after all

  9. T.Y says:

    Triple release! Yasss!! Thank you~ <3

    Thank you kindly for all the hard work!

    “But I refuse! Rokoku, don’t think things will just easily go your way!”

    Goddammit Rohan.

  13. Zypex says:

    Village of the seven mysteries.

  14. Yomi El says:

    What the? that skill is a friggin CHEAT. If Keima increases Kinue’s Stamina and Knowledge of Cooking and Chemicals He would have a Factory that can produce dangerous Arms/Projectiles in a matter of minutes. Imagine Poison cooking(lol) or Explosive food Salvos in a matter of minutes.

  15. Sodemas says:

    Thx for the chapter o/
    Mc’s been Tsundere for a while now~~ just accpet your love for Rokuko already

  16. Barnaby says:

    Thanks for the chapter! \(^-^)/
    Now then… Time stop during cooking? While it did say that the rules were strict, what if she uses a kitchen knife in battle, thinks of the opponent as ‘ingredients’ and considers the fight as ‘preparing the ingredients’?

  17. LGW says:

    delet the name of the village, dooood, real bad man

  18. Caboose says:

    If a [Dogene] scroll exist, he could do that 25 hour a Day sleep or more. I wonder if a a helper(second person) affects the time skip of the cooking skill.

  19. RandomDude says:

    “Ichika was my senior” should be “Ichika is their senior”

  20. Iarei says:

    Kinue’s skill becomes an ultimate combat ability as long as she cooks her victims.

  21. A random passerby says:

    ok kinue’s skill is op if she uses cooking materials as weapons and thinks of her opponents as meast ingredients……also smart rokuko is something i cant fit myself up with

  22. Setokayba says:

    I wonder if “Cooking” exist… Maybe similar skills exists? “Cleaning” “Gardening” …

  23. justwatchinganime says:

    Thanks for the Hard-work!!
