“Everyone, sorry for the wait,”
A stampede of footsteps and garbled voices sounded in my head.
“I’m sick of waiting! Hurry up! Hurry up! Great Me wants my desserts! Sweetness and desserts!”
Hey, hey, hey, what’s the rush? Ninril-sama, you’re being way too excited.
“That’s right, calm down, Ninril-chan,”
“Yo, take it easy there,”
“Augh, I don’t want to end up like that,”
“Neither do I,”
Everyone was stunned by Ninril-sama’s deplorableness.
“Alright, I’ll be sending up the offerings one by one. First up, Ninril-sama,” I said, trying to retake control of the situation.
 Ninril-sama’s package:
– Dorayaki (lots)
– Sliced Cake (lots)
– Limited Edition Cakes from the Autumn Halloween Fair
Chestnuts are the sweets of autumn after all. From the Autumn Halloween Fair, I included the new super luxurious Mont Blanc made with three kinds of  marron cream, a Swiss roll cake with plenty of chestnuts, apple pie made with Japanese apples, cakes made with whole apples and a pear tart made with  La France pears.
Ninril-sama’s boxes exuded a light sweet scent…
A quick flash of light later… 
“Uwaaaan, it’s been a while since I had sweets from another world. Hehe, I can finally, finally eat them~~! Thank you~~!”
…. She was actually crying.
If you are going to cry over them, make sure to ration yourself properly to avoid these feast and famine situations. 
“Stop it, Ninril-chan. Don’t eat those here. That’s improper!”
“Shut up! I’ve been waiting for these for such a long time and I finally managed to get my hands on them, so let me eat them!”
“Wow, that Ninril is just grabbing the cakes with both hands and stuffing her face…”  came the fascinated voice of Hephaestus-sama.
“Her face is covered in cream, how unsightly,”  was Vahagn-sama’s comment.
“Oi, oi, you goddesses are her friends, right? Please do something about it.”
“Yeah, she’s starting to creep me out.”
“We don’t know that person,” came the firm voices of the three goddesses. 
“Ah well, we can only ignore her. Let’s proceed, Other Worlder-kun,” said Kishar.
“A-Are you sure?”
“It’s fine. She’s just gobbling up the cakes and things –”
“Uwaan~ this Dorayaki ish shooo gooooddd~~”
…yeah, I don’t know her either.
“Erm, next up is Kishar-sama,”
 Kishar-sama’s package: 
– Beauty Essence (1g4s) – Bring out the original beauty inside you. This essence has a powerful effect that leads to smooth and firm skin.
– Beauty Oil (1g4s) – A very light oil that seeps quickly into the skin. Made from a blend of 5 carefully selected natural plant oil that moisturises and softens the skin leading to a glossy and gorgeous finish (can also be used on the rest of the body as well as the face).
–  The rest of the budget was spent on various face masks.
 I ended up getting two bottles of Beauty Oil since it could be used on the body as well as the face.
 “Please check the content of the box,” I said after the pitifully light and hollow-sounding box disappeared in a flash of light.
“Beauty Essence and Beauty Oil?  How do I use this Beauty Oil, Other Worlder-kun?”
 “Please hold on,”  the descriptions were on the box but I’ll just assume that she can’t read the Japanese words or something.
Instead of opening up that can of worms, I opened up [Net Super] instead and went to the beauty product page.
“For the Beauty Oil, you can apply it lightly on your skin after washing your face for better absorption of your face cream. You may also use it in place of face or body cream. You may also use it as a massage cream or mix it with other creams or lotion before applying it onto your skin.”
“I see~ so there are many ways of using it~  Is that why you got me two bottles? I look forward to trying it~”
“Hey, enough about that, Kishar. Switch with me,”
“Hmm, impatient as always, aren’t you, Agni?”
“Well, I’m up next!”
While the goddesses were arguing, I had been moving boxes and cartons from my [Item Box] to the table.
 Agni-sama’s package:
– Company S Premium Beer (blue) x 2 cartons
– Y-bis Beer (gold) x 2 cartons
– Assorted local beers
– Assorted overseas beer (various craft beers)
– Food: Grilled Offal, hotdogs, fried food etc
“Ooh, this looks awesome! Thanks! I can’t wait to go back and try them ASAP!”
I know it sounds odd, but Agni-sama sounded a lot like an ossan. A middle-aged uncle who enjoys offal and fried food with his beer.
“It is I next,”
Ah, it’s Ruka-sama.
 Ruka-sama also has several boxes. I placed the food I made for her into some empty boxes I had lying around in my [Item Box].
 Ruka-sama’s Package:
– Ice-cream (from slightly expensive American branded ice-creams to cheaper local ones that are popular with the masses).
– Cakes – Fujiya Limited Autumn Halloween Festival Cakes, the same as Ninril-sama’s.
– Food: Hotdogs as well as fried food and various other ‘on the road food’ I had already pre-made.
“So much ice-cream, so many cakes, so much food, I am happy. Thank you.”
Ruka-sama still sounded a little stilted, but obviously happy. 
“Right, us next!”
What do you mean by ‘let’s go’…
Anyway, I had to carefully place the reinforced boxes on the table. The bottles were damn heavy and fragile.
 Hephaestus and Vahagn-sama’s package:
– Best Whiskey in the World (low price end) x 2
– Various whiskies: Japanese, Scotch, Irish, American, Canadian and other cheaper varieties
“Alright, this is the last box. It’s all very heavy and breakable, so be careful.”
The box disappeared following the echo of Hephaestus-sama’s word.
“Yahoo! There are loads of different types as requested! Thanks!”
“We did ask for lots of variety but this is incredible. We’ll be enjoying these slowly!”
“Yosh, War God, shall we?”
“My thoughts exactly, God of Smith,”
Dom, dom, dom, dom, dom —
… eh? They’re gone? Have those two actually gone off to drink right away?
“Ahem, excuse me…?”
“Which one should I pick next~~ Yes, let’s eat this one~~!”
“…everyone else has left. It’s fine to just leave Ninril here with her cakes. I, too, shall return to my temple to eat ice-cream. Farewell.”
“Ah, it’s just Ruka-sama and… Ninril-sama? Alright,”
Woah, they all sure disappeared quickly. Like a bunch of kids who ran off after collecting their sweets. Well, they are still loads better than the crazy one left behind…
 “Early to bed, early to rise. I have to leave early tomorrow, so I’m going to sleep now.”
 “Nom nom, uwaaan~~ this is happiness~~”
 Yup, gonna go now.

 Creative Licence Taken – everyone’s reaction to Ninril’s gorging.
 Marron cream = Crème de Marrons = Chestnut Cream
Actually contains no cream. It’s actually closer to nut butter. It is apparently very addictive.
Recipe for Crème de Marrons
 La France pears = A European pear that’s raised in Japan
Rather ugly looking for pears but are very tender and delicious. The flesh is soft enough that you can just cut it in half and scoop the flesh out easily with a spoon.
Remember what Gumi said about Japanese and soft texture? This is when soft things are appreciated. Of course, crisp, apple-like Korean pears are nice too.
 I figured this way makes it easier to read.
