Became a Servant the Dragons Are Obsessed With chapter 41
41 – What you don’t know is about
“this… ! It’s obvious that the ingredients have gone bad… … !!!”
Derke points to the dried mint leaves and is astonished. The guy took a step back and looked very alert.
He even covers his nose with his hand.
Even while frowning on arrogance.
It seems he’s not used to it.
Is it because I was young that I have a sensitive sense of smell?
The sense of taste is an infinitely promiscuous subject.
But when I think about it, it’s a little strange.
‘If you only look at the smell of mint, there won’t be anything strange, right?’
It seems that he reacted like this because the incense suddenly stung his nose all at once.
“Derke? Is this your first mint?”
“Mi, Mingt… … ?”
Derke, who plugged his nose with his thumb and forefinger, sighed and asked back. His eyes were still full of disbelief.
“Mint, mint leaves. I guess this is your first time?”
“Baka… ? I-I don’t know that well, but Su-yong… … !”
“It’s not like you said it was bad or anything like that. If you don’t mind, would you like to smell the mint tea for a moment?”
It is not good to plant primary color prejudice from a young age. You have to be able to tolerate mint tea so that later you will be a little more tolerant of personal taste issues.
ㅡSareuk, Sarak… !
I strained the dried mint leaves through the teapot strainer.
And pour hot water over it.
Hot steam rises up.
Brewing the tea took about 5 minutes.
If it was brewed too thickly, it would have only raised a sense of rejection.
‘Now that it’s like this, shall we take a break?’
After tidying up the break room was almost finished, I decided to take a break with a cup of tea. Like the state of the break room, my mentality also needed time to correct itself.
“Whoa? This was a big deal again, yap… ?”
Looking at the teapot from which mint tea is brewing, Derke asks a question. still covering his nose.
“yes. You’ll be fine if you brew it.”
“Come on, let’s talk… … ?”
“Trust me once. You don’t even have to cover your nose that much. The smell of brewed water is better than I thought?”
“If you are a breeder brother… … .”
ㅡKuuu, sniff… … ?
Derke cautiously blows his nose as he puts his hand down with caution at my words.
His behavior was cautious, like someone dealing with poison. But that attitude is short-lived.
“Hoaah… ? Sa, is it refreshing?”
“What do you think? Wouldn’t it be nice to take it again?”
“Death-yong is definitely better than I thought! I think I’ve taken it somewhere, but I’m just not used to it, yap… !”
Derke tilts his head in surprise.
His face was still filled with doubt.
His expression was that he couldn’t understand why the scent was so good.
As I said, mint isn’t bad.
When mint and chocolate are combined,
It’s just that the taste was so different.
I thought this was enough, so I quickly poured mint tea into a teacup. I didn’t know if the taste would be stronger if I brewed it more.
“Now, have a drink. It’s a good thing for insomnia or for calming the mind and body.”
“Fresh safety? I don’t know what you mean… ! Try to trust your brother’s words-!”
Derke picks up the teacup with a doubtful face. Then, carefully bring the teacup to the corner of the nose.
“Wow-? I’m sure it’s not a bad smell because it’s burned like this!”
“Put, stop being vigilant, drink it and judge for yourself.”
“Uh-! Then where… … .”
Derke comes out and drinks tea at the same time.
Warm mint tea quenches and permeates your throat.
The fresh scent clears the mind.
At the same time, the energy of anger pierces the nose.
‘Ha, it’s been a long time since I’ve had a drink, right?’
The mint tea I tasted in a long time wasn’t bad.
No, to be honest, it was rather good.
It feels like the tension built up during lunch is being washed away… … .
“Cool, kek! Kheuk… ?!”
“uh? Derke, are you okay?”
“Yeah, it’s a strange taste after all… … .”
Derke puts the glass down in disgust.
A reaction as if he had swallowed something he couldn’t eat.
Still, he did not vomit or spit out the contents of his mouth.
ㅡBeep, beep, beep… !
Derke looked at me once and said,
I turn my head and slowly drink bottled water.
Then he gulps down the water while gargling his mouth.
It seems that the taste of children is still there.
It seems that the smell is the problem.
Well, when I was younger, I used to be repulsed by the smell that resembled toothpaste.
If I had to ask, it felt like I was meeting a master for the first time in my life.
[The sympathy target is disappointed with your skills.]
[The affection of the sympathy target decreases.]
[Derke (Lv.201) – Worship Relationship]
[Possessed Ability: 「Ghost Corps」]
[Perks: 「Dragon’s Touch」]
[If the affinity continues to decline, you will not be able to benefit from the abilities and perks of the sympathy target. Be careful.]
what is this all of a sudden?
Favorability decreased just because they gave mint tea?
You said it wasn’t that demanding of an appetite?
Seriously, I don’t even know what dragons taste like.
“… … .”
Derke glances at me and purses his lips.
It seems that the tastes of Sophia and Derke are also sharply divided, probably because of the conflicting attributes of light and death. Well, of course it’s cerebral.
In any case, I will not force myself to eat strict things from now on. Build up your karma stack.
‘I need to put the mint tea away and pour the milk.’
We had a little break after that.
And after a short while… … .
ㅡswig swish swish… !
The whipper cuts through the air and stirs the dough alone.
This borrowed the power of Delke’s ability, the “Ghost Corps”. An invisible specter is stirring the whipper for me.
There is no such thing as a very automatic whipper. I was worried because the kitchen utensils didn’t come in, but I was worried for nothing.
Isn’t there such a great alternative here?
“Okay, stop. As long as you do that, it’s fine.”
“yes! To stop it-!”
Derke gives orders to the ghost according to my words.
I was wondering what to do if he hates me because his favorability rating went down earlier, but like the system message, it seemed to be okay so far.
Well, I made it to the end of the friendship stage.
It’s nonsense to fall in an instant.
I can’t even imagine that Derke hates me.
It seems that Derke didn’t really put it in his heart to see if it was okay at least once.
As evidence of that, he helped me without hesitation in making the cake batter.
It was. This time, he also demonstrated the “dragon’s touch”.
‘Okay, if you add a small amount of double-boiled chocolate to this dough and mix it… … .’
ㅡWheeze, whistle… !
As the melted chocolate mixes with the batter,
The dough gradually turns black.
The amount of chocolate was limited, so I couldn’t put in a lot.
It was used only for color and fragrance.
If there was even cocoa powder, I could have made a more plausible cake… … . This is a bit disappointing.
ㅡ Tak-tak-tak… !
After I finished the dough, I put it in a mold to get the air bubbles out.
And then… … .
Put it in the fire and cook it, and you’re done.
You just have to be careful not to burn it.
10 to 15 minutes should be enough while checking the condition.
It wasn’t difficult until here, maybe because I made a sponge cake for practice yesterday.
“It’s already over, Deathyong… ?!”
Derke, who was perfectly assisting by his side, asked a question. At the same time, he was looking for a job, saying, ‘If there is something else to ask, I’ll leave it to you, yap-!’
“Bread is over, but it’s still far from over. In a way, this is the beginning and the highlight.”
“High-rice… … ?”
“You will know when you see it. If it smells bad, it’s okay to cover your nose.”
I left the bewildered Derke behind and lit the stove.
Now it was finally time to make mint cream, the core of the core.
ㅡLike every inch… !
First, heat the milk in a pot.
until the milk boils.
If you boil it completely, it will become a cream sauce.
—-Sareuk, Sararak… … .
When the temperature rises moderately, steam rises.
I dropped mint leaves at this time.
Soak well in the milk that will become creamy.
Boil the milk over low heat for about 2-3 minutes.
ㅡ bubbling… !
‘As expected, the color doesn’t come out with this alone.’
mint leaves steeped in milk,
There was little change in color.
Only slightly bluish in color,
The milk was still close to white.
In the first place, Mint Choco’s blue-green color was made with artificial pigments.
‘Then, should I give it a plausible color?’
I decided to use the blueberries that came with this corrosion as a natural pigment. The skin juice of this blueberry was also squeezed out by the ghost instead.
There is no such thing as omnipotence. Despite the formless specter, he touches things well.
ㅡSwitch, shuck, shuck… !
After adding the blueberry juice,
Only now it turns a little blue.
The white milk meets the blue color of the blueberry to neutralize the color.
Then, a color close to blue-green gradually emerges.
Yes, just looking at it makes me want to eat with that color.
“Wow… ?! It’s a very pretty color, yap-!”
Derke, who had been silently watching, also admits it.
The color of mint is very nice to look at.
However, it didn’t go well with the food.
It was an unappetizing color.
“Derke? Can we get some help from the ghosts again?”
“Is it whipping again?”
“Desseuyong- who only leaves it to you!”
I put the right amount of sugar and a small amount of cheese in a pot where the color came out satisfactorily, and put a whipper on it. OK… … .
ㅡWheeze, whistle, whistle… !
You know, the whipper moves.
That too at a fairly quick pace.
It was perfect for whipping up quickly.
If it hadn’t been for the real Derke, he might have dislocated his shoulder from manually stirring the whipper.
How much did Whipper move with the help of the specter?
ㅡChideok, chideok, chideok… !
What used to be just milk has a fairly thick consistency.
It’s really over now. When you lift the whipper and it tilts like a horn, the mint cream is complete.
“Okay, stop now. It’s done.”
Now is the real finish.
Finally, we have all the ingredients.
After waiting a little bit, take the cake out of the oven and spread the cream well.
And sprinkle some crumbled chocolate on top and you’re done.
It was a shame that the cake was still far from being baked.
“Wow! Looking at it like this, I’m a little curious… !”
While I was heading to the oven to finish, Derke showed interest in the mint cream.
Derke couldn’t hold back his curiosity and was putting cream on his index finger.
Want to try the mint flavor again?
Have you been hurt like that before?
Also, the lowering of the favorability is the specification… … .
Unexpectedly, Derke opened his mouth wide to taste the mint cream.
“Oh, no… … !!!”
It was Derke who fell into the abyss of mint on his own before I had time to stop him.
