Volume 4: The Useless Quartet
It warmed my heart looking at the gentle flames in the fireplace.
I watched the fire while slouching onto a couch and wearing a comfy cotton robe.
Someone offered a teacup to me gracefully.
“The red tea of the highest grade is ready, Kazuma-san.”
Aqua who passed the red tea to me said as she sat beside me.
I took a sip…
“… This is plain water.”
“Ara ara, look how clumsy I am. My apologies, Kazuma-san.”
“Don’t worry, you can just make another pot of tea. Thank you Aqua-san. I will drink this anyway.”
Now that I think of it, Aqua could purify any liquid she touched.
She must have turned it into plain water accidentally while brewing the tea.
With my current stable state of mind, I won’t get angry over this trivial matter.
Sipping the warm water, a warmth spread through my body.
So people can be so harmonious if they become rich.
I smiled as I looked at Aqua who was reading a book titled ‘Language used by high class society even a goblin can learn’.
And bring the tea Aqua brewed again to my lips.
— It is still plain water, but my current self won’t feel angry over trivial things like this.
