The next day, I took Eva out for a brief walk in the town.
Along with me was the Cute little Eva trotting beside me.
From a glance, she seemed like a puppy, but I guess she’s not a puppy-like most people think because everyone who passes her looks back at her.
Suddenly, Eva halted.
She stopped and the place she was eyeing was a cake shop.
A countertop was laid with a variety of cakes and assortments.
Not only that, but the smell of freshly baked bread wafted through the air, and just
standing there was enough to make you drool.
“Do you want some?
“I see. So Which one do you want?”
Eva jumped to the counter and showed me a shortcake with strawberries on it.
“I’ll take that one. Mister, one of those shortcakes, please.
The man behind the counter seemed confused so when I called out to him he came back to his senses.
He then took the strawberry cake I ordered from the window and was about to put it in the paper box.
“I’d be happy if you could just put it on a plate.”
“Oh, of course.”
The young man looked at Eva and understood.
He understood that she wanted to eat it right now, as he could clearly see her drooling and clinging to the counter.
He then retreated to the back of the store and came out a moment later carrying a
piece of shortcake on a plate in his hand.
He then handed it to me.
I paid him and placed the plate on the ground.
Eva immediately pounced on the cake.
She took a bite and gobbled it up while making sure not to touch the strawberries on
Well, to be more specific, she did smell it a few times and even licked it thrice, but
each time she did it gently like she made sure not to harm it.
“Do you like strawberries?”
“…… Are you the type of person who saves her favorite things for last?
she nodded embarrassingly.
Eva said, “Because there’s only one strawberry.”
I chuckled and then turned to the man at the counter.
I said, “One more – no, two, please. Please put them on the plate just like this one.
“Haha, I understand.”
Apparently, he understood that Eva liked strawberries and I wanted her to enjoy more of them.
He then returned to the back of the store with a smile on his face and came back with an additional serving of shortcakes.
Eva gobbled it down happily.
I thought she was going to eat the strawberries one by one since now there were three, but to my surprise, she ate all the cake and then ate the remaining three strawberries at once.
I knew that she was the type to leave her favorite things for last.
But there’s more to it. She is the type of person who leaves her favorite things for last only to then eat them all at once.
I couldn’t help but smile at Eva
“What is it?”
“Does your store deliver?
“Yeah, only if you order it.”
“So, will you deliver it every day? to the Rockwell’s estate on the west side of town.
“Every day?…… Rockwell’s estate?”
The man was startled two-fold.
“Could it be the Duke’s ……?”
“Yes, I’m his grandson, Now if you’ll deliver it daily please.”
I bowed my head slightly.
“─ YES, OF COURSE.” It’ll be my honor to serve you every day”
Eva jumped on me and pecked me on the face.
(Sorry for ghosting you all for this long, but a lot happened and I’m finally in a stable state :) , Will start this again and release it regularly, I apologise again*sob*)
