Haru didn't expect to see three people who had a lot of roles in the story. He was wondering what was a problem with his luck to meet three of them at the same time now.
"You're a businessman, right? Did you sell something?" The girl with pink hair asked him curiously.
"I am a chef," Haru answered and said, "I will open a restaurant in Alvarez Empire."
"Why not in Ishgar?" The man with blue hair asked.
"It's too small and I want to see the wider world," Haru said, and looked at three of them, "Seibami Haruka. Nice to meet you."
"Meredy," the pink-haired girl said.
The older young lady and the man looked at her with speechless expression when this girl introduced her real name. They saw the reaction of his face but they didn't see anything strange and this young man only gave Meredy a nod.
"Mystogan," Jellal introduced.
"Ultear Milkovich," Ultear said and didn't really care whether this young man knew her real name.
Jellal blinked his eyes with a strange expression.
"You're a chef, right? Can you cook something?" Meredy asked.
"Here?" Haru looked at him with a weird expression. He understood that this girl might be bored and that was why she decided to talk to him since she was bored of talking with both of them.
"There aren't any cooking utensils here," Ultear said.
"Then, let's go to the kitchen on this ship," Meredy said.
"Meredy! Don't trouble him!" Ultear said.
"Ur...." Meredy looked at her with a sad expression.
"I am sorry for the trouble that she has caused," Jellal said.
"It's not a problem. I can't cook here, but I have bread that I have made before," Haru said, and took out a piece of bread that he had made when he was in his original world. Once again, he was glad that he had this 'Sticky Zipper' since it could keep his food in warm condition and stale inside his body, "You can have it."
Meredy smelled very delicious from this bread and took it from him. She didn't hesitate and ate it, "Hmmm!!!! DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!" She had never tasted this kind of bread before and it was very delicious.
Ultear and Jella knew that Meredy was a bit dumb and didn't say anything when she received the bread to see whether there was poison or not, but they had to admit that their mouth got watery when they smelled the bread.
Meredy also might not have noticed it, but both Ultear and Jella realized that Haru had used magic to keep his bread. Though, both of them didn't even feel a fluctuation of magic energy coming from him. They thought that his identity wasn't simple or that he might just be a very serious chef? They needed to ask him more questions before they could make a conclusion.
"Haruka! This is very good! I am sure that you can open a popular bakery in the Alvarez Kingdom!" Meredy gave him a thumbs up.
"Thank you," Haru smiled.
Jellal and Ultear felt hungry and looked at him.
"Sorry. I only have one," Haru said.
Jellal and Ultear weren't sure but they felt very disappointed when they heard his words and looked at Meredy with an envious gaze.
Meredy noticed their gaze on her bread and hurriedly ate the entire bread without leaving anything, "Yummy!"
Jellal looked at him and asked, "Are you a magician?"
Haru nodded and answered, "Just some magic that helps my cooking." He had to admit that Ultear and Meredy were very beautiful women and it made the side effect of the 'Pleasure Magic' became quite strong.
"Are you in trouble?" Ultear suddenly asked.
"No? Why do you ask?" Haru asked.
"It's just that I have noticed that you're quite uncomfortable for some reason," Ultear said.
"Are you uncomfortable staying with us?" Meredy asked with quite a sad tone.
"Do I look that way in your eyes?" Haru asked Ultear.
"Hmm..." Ultear nodded. She had often lived while observing everyone's expression since she needed to manipulate them. Though she had never done that again right now since she had changed, it was hard to erase a habit.
Jellal also looked at him curiously.
'Is it the protagonist's effect?' Haru thought that it was hard to have a calm trip. He gave them a quite awkward smile and said, "Sorry. It's just that I am not used to talking to beautiful girls." He decided to tell both lies and honest words. He really didn't feel uncomfortable talking with them since the side effect of his magic was very powerful.
"Then, should I sit next to you?" Jellal asked. He thought that Haru was quite uncomfortable with both Ultear and Meredy.
"No! I think this is a good chance for you to get used to a beautiful girl," Ultear said with a serious expression. Her impression of him had increased when he praised her.
"That's true! You will open a bakery, right? Then you need to get used to us since you're working in the service industry," Meredy also nodded. She was quite happy with his praise and started to get closer.
'Close! You're too close to me!' Haru was wondering why the girls in this world had such big b.o.o.b.s. He had a headache trying not to jump into them.
"But honestly, I am quite surprise," Ultear suddenly said.
"Surprised? Of what?" Haru asked.
"I think that you're a womanizer similar to the people in Blue Pegasus," Ultear said, explaining, "If you don't know Blue Pegasus is a famous guild in Fiore that is also an open host club."
"Are you entering a guild?" Meredy asked.
"Guys, don't bother him," Jellal said.
Suddenly there was a huge vibration on the ship that made it shake around the place.
Both Meredy and Ultear lost their balance and dropped on him.
Haru felt very soft things on his face, 'Dammit!!!!!' He was wondering why he had such a problem even though he only wanted to solve his problem as soon as possible.
"What's happening?" Meredy complained.
Ultear stood up and saw him. She took her handkerchief and wiped his nose, "You have a nosebleed." She thought his reaction was kind of cute.
"Thank you. I can do it myself," Haru said and took her handkerchief.
"Let me help you. This is also a good way for you to solve your problem as soon as possible," Ultear reprimanded him.
Haru had a headache right now and suddenly he heard a scream.
"MONSTER! MONSTERS! MONSTER!"
"THERE'S A MONSTER THAT IS ATTACKING OUR SHIP!"
"PLEASE STAY IN YOUR SEAT!"
"EVERYONE WHO IS MAGE PLEASE HELP US!"
Haru stood up and thought to cool up his head.
"Where are you going?" Meredy asked.
"To get an ingredient for cooking," Haru said and walked to the outside of the ship.
Jellal, Meredy, and Ultear looked at each other and followed him since they were a bit worried.
Haru held his head and muttered, "I need to cool my head....'
