My Beloved Dog is the Strongest in Another World - Chapter 123
The Man Finally Understood His Situation
After listening for a full minute, the man understood that Leo was a Silver Fenrir, and what it is that he had done.
Leo seemed to have joined Sebastian, and was now growling in a low and threatening way… Leo really did like to join in on the fun.
Now that I think about it, he had just called Leo a wolf last time, and this time he seemed to think she was a fenrir.
I suppose it was because he didn’t know about Ms. Claire or the duke’s family.
Now that he knew who it was he had antagonized, and what could happen to him now, the blood seemed to drain from his face as he grew pale.
I didn’t know that humans could even look that pale.
“He-help me! I was acting out of impulse!”
“Do you really think that’s going to get you out of this…?”
“I-I’m sorry! I repent! But just spare my life!”
The man began to plead desperately with Sebastian.
“Sebastian…don’t you think you’re going a little too far…?”
“Hmm. But it’s important to put the fear into them. Or they might do the same thing again…”
Ms. Claire muttered with uncertainty as she watched Sebastian threaten the man.
Someone who would do the same thing after being caught once needed to learn to be afraid, or they would just repeat the same thing again.
Well, I did think he had accomplished that now…
Besides, there was something very cowardly about the man.
“What should we do…?”
“I beg you! Spare me!”
Sebastian continued to threaten the man, as if he was still undecided.
This was getting very drawn out?
“I think he gets the point, Mr. Sebastian.”
“Mr. Takumi… He attacked you as well, didn’t he? You wish to forgive him?”
Uh, why did it seem like he was threatening me now?
When Sebastian turned to face me, his eyes were still narrowed and his voice low.
It was honestly a little unnerving… You could tell that this was a man who had experienced a lot…
And though I was a little overwhelmed, I continued.
“Well, he wasn’t even good enough to put up a fight at all. As long as he knows that there will be no next time.”
“I see… If that’s how you feel, Mr. Takumi.”
So saying, Sebastian stood up straight again and let out a sigh.
Perhaps Sebastian had continued for so long because he was waiting for Ms. Claire or me to intervene.
If that was the case, then he was quite the actor…
“Leo. You can get off of him now. Ah, Johanna. Can you tie his hands up?”
Leo nodded and then lifted her paw.
Johanna had been standing next to Ms. Claire, and just like the last time, she produced a rope from somewhere and used it to tie the man’s hands and feet.
…I only needed his hands to be tied…
As the man had no will to resist now, he just lay there quietly.
“Now, you finally understand what you have done. Are you remorseful?”
I asked. The man nodded repeatedly, like some kind of broken doll.
“O-of course. I am so sorry… While I didn’t know, I caused a lot of trouble…”
The man said as he nodded at me.
So he was capable of speaking politely after all… Though, the mohawk moving up and down ruined the effect a little…
Now, what should we do from here…
After Johanna finished tying the man up, he sat upright. I watched him and pondered the question.
As the binding around his hands and feet were also connected, the only thing he could move freely was his head.
“Ms. Claire and Sebastian. I suppose it would usually be up to the duke to decide the man’s fate. But would you mind if I handled it?”
“…Indeed… The table was broken, and there was other damage to the store… But it was you who he threatened with the knife. So I do think that you have that right, Mr. Takumi.”
“Well, you were also the one to restrain him. While this is not the passing of authority, I suppose we can turn a blind eye this time… Don’t you agree, Mr. Kalis?”
“Yes… I will leave it to Mr. Takumi. We made more than enough profit off the new products in order to cover the cost of the table.”
Ms. Claire, Sebastian, and Mr. Kalis all agreed.
Even Johanna and Nicholas nodded.
Well, perhaps there was a lot of trouble that would come if the duke dealt with it, but Sebastian and the others said they would let it pass this time.
I was grateful for how accommodating they all were.
“But, what about everyone else who is gathered here?”
“Of course, it is something that everyone should know. Do you all understand? The duke’s family is not involved in this matter.”
The spectators who had been watching all nodded at Sebastian’s words.
As they all seemed to trust the duke, perhaps it wasn’t necessary to speak so threateningly, Sebastian?
In any case, I was glad to see that everyone was satisfied here.
Now, I had to think about what I would do with the man.
“Leo could eat…”
I had only muttered it as a joke, but the man shuddered, and Leo shook her head with disgust.
Don’t worry, even I wouldn’t make Leo eat a human.
“Well, I was just joking… But still…”
I could just hand him over to the guards, but then he might run away again… Though it seemed quite unlikely with how scared he was now.
And if I handed him over, there would be no point in having gotten everyone’s permission.
As I had one idea, I called out to Mr. Kalis, who was standing nearby.
At this point, the clerks had picked up the fallen herbs, and were lining them up on a new table that had been brought out.
This table was smaller, but it was fine, as there were now fewer herbs to sell.
I watched them and gathered my thoughts together before explaining my idea to Mr. Kalis.
