My Beloved Dog is the Strongest in Another World - Chapter 102
I succeeded in surprising Mr. Ekenhart
I suspected that Mr. Ekenhart believed that Weed Cultivation was just an ability that allowed me to grow plants.
And so I would show him.
As I had them in front of me, it would be much faster than explaining it to him.
Sebastian moved back, and I replaced him in front of the field and began to pick the herbs.
“What is he going to do?”
“Well, just watch him, father.”
“Your Grace, Mr. Takumi’s Weed Cultivation ability really is something special.”
Both Ms. Claire and Sebastian were praising my ability and raising Mr. Ekenhart’s expectations. I really wish they wouldn’t do that…
Still, I did not want that to break my concentration. And so I turned my attention back to the herbs, gathering them into bundles divided by type.
The Loe was the only herb that did not need to be processed in any way. You just needed to pick them, and then cut them open when used.
As for the others, I relied on the explanation in the books.
Depending on what treatment was the most effective, I dried or crushed them to various states.
But while I was doing this, I suddenly had an idea, and used one hand to make an entirely different plant grow.
And I also changed it so that it was in a usable state, and then my work was done.
Overall, the entire job took about half an hour.
It would take even less time if I could gather the herbs faster.
“…What did he do? I saw him picking them, but it looked like he also dried them in an instant.”
“It’s always astonishing to see…”
“Thanks to this, the time between growing and selling them will be shortened greatly.”
While Mr. Ekenhart tilted his head with a puzzled expression, Ms. Claire looked highly amused.
And Sebastian was talking about how they would sell them.
Indeed, normally the process of drying and grinding the herbs would take a lot of time.
I handed over the herbs to Sebastian, and then walked over to Mr. Ekenhart, and gave him the last herb I had made on a whim.
“Mr. Ekenhart, you’ll never know until you try. Now please eat this.”
“What is that? I’ve never seen it before…”
“Oh, it’s that herb, isn’t it, Mr. Takumi?”
Ms. Claire noticed, as she had eaten it before.
Mr. Ekenhart looked at it oddly, and hesitated to eat it.
It was no surprise. It was a strange leaf with a purple pattern on it. And he did not know me very well.
Still, this was the leaf I had given Ms. Claire and the others in the forest. The one that cured them of their tiredness.
I didn’t know if it was due to his age, but Mr. Ekenhart still seemed tired after his sleep.
He had ridden long and hard to get here, and it would take more than a night’s rest to fully recover.
“Your Grace, both I and Lady Claire have already eaten it. It is not poisonous, so please do not worry.”
“…Very well. …Gulp.”
With Sebastian’s recommendation, Mr. Ekenhart shoved the leaf into his mouth.
Then he closed his eyes and chewed. However, his eyebrows narrowed, probably due to the taste.
As this was not something to eat slowly and savor, Mr. Ekenhart swallowed it hurriedly. And then his eyes opened and he looked at me with suspicion.
But a few seconds later, his expression turned to that of surprise.
“…What is this… I feel like the fatigue is leaving my body!? It’s like I was never tired to begin with… Can such a plant exist!?”
“Mr. Takumi created it after much testing with Weed Cultivation.”
“You can even make new plants… I didn’t realize Weed Cultivation was so amazing…”
“Not only that, but what Mr. Takumi was doing to the herbs earlier was to change them so they are in the most effective state for use. In other words, He can make them grow immediately, and then have them ready for use just as quickly.”
Sebastian explained to him about my Weed Cultivation ability.
How I had not only used Weed Cultivation to make the herbs, but had altered them.
And that I had made herbs that aren’t in any book, and how their effects were immediately tangible.
It looked like Mr. Ekenhart was having trouble processing all of this information.
It was almost amusing to see how his facial expression kept changing.
Though, I did feel a little bad… Perhaps it would have been better to show him at a slower pace.
Still, he was the head of the Liebert house. And perhaps he would be able to think of different ways of selling and using these herbs in the future.
Since he was someone who I could trust, it was best to give him all of the information needed.
He did not look like the type of person to deceive or use people… Well, I mainly trusted him because he happened to be Ms. Claire’s father.
“…I had no idea just how… I cannot thank you enough for signing the contract with us… Gifts…certainly are amazing.”
“Your Grace, there is still much that we don’t know about Gifts. Not all of them will be useful, like Mr. Takumi’s.”
“Indeed… Mr. Takumi, the fact that you are able to use it so well, and have come up with new ways… I like you even more now! Hahaha!”
While not all Gifts are useful to others, mine is.
Once again, I felt grateful to whoever it was who had given this ability to me.
…Still, it was from this point on that it would really show its worth.
Mr. Ekenhart liked Weed Cultivation very much now, especially since he had felt its effect. And so he opened his mouth wide and laughed loudly while slapping me on the shoulder.
…He did that a lot…and it hurt quite a bit…
In fact, the slapping and laughing was so loud, that Leo, Tilura, and Sherry were now looking at us oddly.
Don’t mind us. Just keep playing!
I didn’t say it out loud, but I hoped they understood.
I gritted my teeth until Ms. Claire came to the rescue.
