My Beloved Dog is the Strongest in Another World - Chapter 101
I used Weed Cultivation to make herbs for the duke
“Here you go, Mr. Takumi.”
“Is this…an order sheet?”
“Yes. I…thought I should create a list of herbs for you to cultivate.”
As soon as we went out into the garden, Sebastian handed me a sheet of paper. It was a list of herbs with types and quantities. And it also told me how much I would receive as payment for delivering them.
Hmm… One gold per Loe leaf… I see… But I had no concept of money in this world, so I wasn’t sure what to make of the prices…
That was another thing I could discuss with someone when there was time.
However, the number of orders were…
“Sebastian, I feel like the numbers are quite low?”
With Weed Cultivation, it would only take a few seconds…or half a minute at most, to make a single herb.
And Sebastian had watched me do it enough times to understand it…
If I only had to make eight different types of herbs, including the Loe, and ten of each, then my job would be finished very quickly.
“In regards to that, Mr. Takumi, I had to think about how you fainted the other day.”
“We cannot overwork you, Mr. Takumi. We still do not know the limits of your ability. And so I think we should watch carefully in order to be safe. Besides, you said that you also wanted to conduct your own experiments. And so surely you should save some of your strength for that.”
“…I hadn’t realized you were being so considerate. Thank you.”
Whether it was a contract with favorable conditions, or allowing me to stay in this mansion, I was incredibly grateful towards them.
But considering how it had been when I was experimenting previously, I thought I could still make a lot more. Still, I decided to accept Ms. Claire and Sebstian’s kindness. After all, I didn’t want to be overwhelmed with work, like with my previous job.
“Oh? Claire…you seem awfully soft towards Mr. Takumi?”
“No-not at all! This is something that Sebastian and I discussed together!”
“No…it was Lady Claire who insisted…”
At Mr. Ekenhart’s words, Ms. Claire became red in the face and started shouting.
Now her father was grinning at her, and so was Sebastian, even though he had been silenced… The two were quite alike… I’m not sure if that is a good thing.
“Uhh, now I will show you Weed Cultivation.”
“Leo…you should play with Tilura and Sherry.”
“I’ll play with Leo!”
I interrupted them so that I could start testing Weed Cultivation, but then Leo suddenly started to protest.
I think that she was worried that I would faint again. But I was fine.
Leo looked a little crestfallen by this, but then Tilura threw her arms around her, and Sherry jumped up onto her back. She seemed to like it up there.
And so the three moved away from us, and then Leo started to run around the garden while carrying Tilura and Sherry.
“…It really does carry Tilura and plays…in spite of being a Silver Fenrir.”
“Leo is very fond of people. Especially children.”
“The two of them play together often.”
When Leo had moved forward and barked, Ms. Ekenhart had shuddered and retreated a few steps. But he now returned and muttered.
He was still not at ease with Leo… It was the fear of Silver Fenrirs. The more you knew about them, the more likely you were to be afraid of Leo.
Though, I did hope that he would get used to her soon. I would feel bad for Leo if she continued to be the object of fear.
“Now, I will use Weed Cultivation.”
I held the book of herbs, which I had brought from my room, in one hand, and then moved away from Mr. Ekenhart and the others.
I still didn’t know a lot about the herbs, so it was easier for me to do it while looking at the book.
But first, I would cultivate the one that I knew by memory. Loe.
And so I imagined the shape and effect while placing my hand on the ground, and then I used Weed Cultivation.
Approximately one hour later, there was a small prairie-like field of herbs surrounding me.
“Uhh… That’s everything on the order sheet, right?”
“Let me see…”
I was careful not to step on any of them as I moved away from the field and over to where Sebastian was watching.
Sebastian took out a copy of the order sheet and began to check the types and quantities of the herbs.
“Mr. Takumi, how do you feel?”
“I feel fine, Ms. Claire. This isn’t any different from when I was doing my research, before going to the forest.”
If anything, I had probably made more herbs that time.
Of course, I ate some myself, and the rest were all used by the others in the forest.
“Weed Cultivation really is an amazing ability. Loe is so very rare, and yet it can be grown so easily…”
Mr. Ekenhart muttered as he inspected the field of herbs.
I still wasn’t sure how rare it was, but the duke was very surprised that I could make ten of them all at once.
“While it was mostly curiosity…this ability will surely bring great profits for our house… Mr. Takumi, I must thank you once again for choosing us.”
“Not at all. I am the one who is grateful. You believed me and allowed me to live here, while offering such a generous contract.”
I was just glad that I could use my Gift to help people who I was indebted to.
Furthermore, I would be able to earn a living. It was more than enough.
“I’ve finished counting, Mr. Takumi. It’s exactly what we ordered. Thank you.”
“That’s good. I thought I might have gotten something wrong with the quantity or types.”
“No, it is perfect.”
Some of them I had only ever seen in books, so I had been extra careful to not make any mistakes.
And so I was quite relieved when Sebastian confirmed that everything was in order.
Now, we just had to gather them so that they could be sold.
With Weed Cultivation, you weren’t merely making herbs grow, but you could make it so that they were in the state where they would be the most effective as medicine.
“Now, Sebastian. I will start gathering them.”
“Yes. Thank you.”
“Huh? Mr. Takumi is going to do it himself?”
“Yes. It’s better if I do it.”
I replied to Mr. Ekenhart as I walked towards the small field of herbs.
