My Beloved Dog is the Strongest in Another World - Chapter 126
I Heard Some Rumors
“Mr. Takumi, we finished selling all of the herbs that you provided.”
Said Mr. Kalis when we stepped outside.
Now that the herbs were sold out, there were no more customers around the table, and only a few children and their parents were left playing with Leo.
At least Leo seemed to be enjoying it…
On the other hand, the herbs had sold out, and it was still a little before midday…
I should be happy that things were going well, but was there really such a high demand for them?
“Mr. Kalis, is the number of people who need herbs growing?”
“Indeed. Apparently, some dishonest physicians have infiltrated the town and started doing business lately…”
Sebastian asked Mr. Kalis this question.
It did seem like there had been a lot of people coming to buy them.
Well, many of them had likely come to see Leo, just like Mr. Kalis had predicted, but the fact that they had sold out so quickly suggested there was still a high demand for them.
…However, what was this about dishonest physicians now?
“People are selling herbs of bad quality, or weakening the effects by adding other things to the powdered herbs, and yet still sell them at normal prices.”
“Oh… So there are people who do such things…”
Physicians that sell inferior medicinal herbs, huh?
There were people like that in my old world too. So I suppose it was the same wherever you went.
But Sebastian’s eyes were shining with a suspicious light… It was a little scary…
“It is quite bold of them to do such a thing on the duke’s lands… This might become very interesting.”
“Sebastian enjoys crushing those who use cowardly methods. …Perhaps it is like a hobby for him.”
“Lady Claire, that is not true at all. It’s only that I cannot forgive dishonesty. …Hehe. I will make a report to His Grace as soon as we return…”
While Ms. Claire explained this to me, Sebastian denied the accusation.
However, his words and overall air after that seemed to suggest that she was actually correct.
“In any case, Mr. Takumi. About the future of the herbs…”
Mr. Kalis ignored Sebastian and turned to me.
The future… If we could sell this much, perhaps I should start growing more of them?
“In terms of amount, it can either be the same or just a little more. Aside from that, I would like to increase the amount of Ramogi as well.”
“Ramogi? Is there so little of it then?”
I had made Ramogi many times, so it would not be difficult to do.
Well, I still had to be careful about fainting, so I couldn’t just grow a lot of it without thinking.
“Yes. Recently, there has been plague that is spreading in a nearby village and this town. And while it can be treated with Ramogi, as there are so many people who have fallen ill, there is currently not enough Ramogi to go around. Besides, with dishonest physicians selling their herbs as well, it doesn’t always reach those who need it the most.”
“I see…the plague…”
“Thankfully, our shop is owned by the duke. And I’ve seen the quality of your herbs, Mr. Takumi. And so if we focus on selling Ramogi here and help quell the plague, it would really help with our reputation.”
Unlike those other diluted ones, my herbs would be very effective.
And with Weed Cultivation, I can make herbs that are in the best state for maximum effectiveness.
If we sold these good herbs, then it would help the duke’s business and keep sales stable.
…If things go well, word might have spread quite far by the time Mr. Ekenhart reaches his house.
“As for the herbs that Mr. Takumi will make, I will handle the arrangements.”
Just a moment ago, Sebastian had been gleefully thinking about what he would do to the immoral physicians, but he now returned to himself and started to talk with Mr. Kalis.
Well, I’m sure that it will be fine if I leave it all to Sebastian.
He just needed to tell me how many herbs I had to make later on.
“Leo. You seem to be enjoying yourself.”
“Hehehe. Good Leo has become quite popular with the children of this town.”
“Of course, she is! Because she is so cute and gentle!”
I moved away from Mr. Kalis and Sebastian as they talked, and stopped in front of Leo, who was playing with the three remaining children.
Leo was wagging her tail happily as she played with them.
Ms. Claire also watched with a smile.
Tilura seemed very proud for some reason… I suppose she was happy that someone she was close with was now popular with others.
I petted Leo as the children wrapped themselves in her fur or rode on top of her back.
She had done so well today… With the handling of Nick, attracting customers, playing with the children. It was all because of Leo that we got through it.
“Brother… Sorry to disturb you, but there’s something I want to ask…”
“What is it, Nick?”
As I was petting Leo, Nick came out of the store and approached me.
However…being called ‘brother’ from someone who was older than me was…awkward, but I decided to not think about it too much.
And so I moved away from Leo so that I could listen to what Nick had to say.
“Brother. Just earlier, you were talking about that guy who sells inferior goods, yes?”
“Yes, we were.”
“This guy… He came in from a different town. But I heard him say that he was connected to a certain nobleman.”
“A nobleman…? And you really met this person?”
I suppose he was talking about a noble who wasn’t the duke.
Because I couldn’t believe that Sebastian or Ms. Claire would be involved in such a thing.
“Well, just once, when I went to shake down the store…”
He only seemed slightly embarrassed by this. I would have hoped he would be more apologetic.
Perhaps I will have to keep an eye on him from now on…
