My Beloved Dog is the Strongest in Another World - Chapter 129
The Sickness Had Spread Through The Orphanage
“As for how we will deal with this store, that can wait one moment. We must first tend to the people of the orphanage.”
“Indeed. …Mr. Takumi, can you give them some herbs?”
“…Who is your companion? And…that wolf…?”
Mr. Claire made the request. So it was my turn to act then.
After all, I had Weed Cultivation, and could make something proper and of good quality.
As for Ms. Anna, she looked at Leo and me with a puzzled expression. Now that I thought about it, we hadn’t introduced ourselves yet.
“Mr. Takumi is a brilliant pharmacist. And this is Leo, a Silver Fenrir. …Don’t be afraid. Leo would never harm a human.”
“…Is-is that so…? …Umm. Mr. Takumi. I am Anna, the headmistress of this orphanage.”
“It’s nice to meet you.”
We bowed after Ms. Claire’s introduction.
The woman who stood next to Ms. Anne looked very surprised by Leo, but she seemed to believe Ms. Claire’s words, and was not afraid.
However, Ms. Claire…I’m not really a pharmacist…
“Mr. Takumi, it is to hide your ability. That way, it would not be strange for you to be carrying herbs.”
Sebastian whispered this to me, as if he had been reading my mind.
Apparently, they wanted to conceal the fact that I could use the Weed Cultivation Gift.
By minimizing the number of people who knew, I might be able to avoid being targeted by strange people.
“Mr. Takumi, if you don’t mind…”
“Ah, but first, could I see how the patients are doing? Or I won’t know what herbs will be effective.”
“Indeed. And I have some knowledge of herbs, and should be able to advise you.”
“…However…if Lady Claire were to get infected…”
Because I had to know the state of the illness when choosing the most effective herbs.
If Sebastian were to be there and share his knowledge about them, then I would be able to grow them immediately.
However, Ms. Anne was still worried about Ms. Claire and Tilura.
“This is awful…”
But in spite of her worries, we entered the orphanage anyway.
Ms. Anne finally agreed to it, though she was frowning.
Leo, Tilura, Sherry, and Johanna all waited outside.
As a child, Tilura was at greater risk, and Leo could not even fit inside of the building.
Johanna stayed with them as their guard, and Sherry would keep Tilura company.
“What do they tell you, Mr. Takumi?”
We were led to a children’s room.
It was likely a room shared by two or three people. And on the beds were children who had expressions of agony.
I didn’t have a lot of knowledge about illnesses…but I felt as if I had seen sights like this before.
Their faces were red as if suffering from a fever…and they were coughing painfully…
…Maybe it was a cold…?
“What do you think, Sebastian?”
It was dangerous for an amateur to make assumptions, and so I asked Sebastian for his opinion.
I didn’t know if they had colds in this world, but that’s what it looked like to me.
Sebastian scanned the room and then approached one of the children.
He then inspected their mouths and felt their temperature by putting his hand on their foreheads.
“Yes… I believe that this is the same illness that Lady Tilura had.”
Ms. Claire muttered. She seemed to be terribly affected at the sight of the children, and wore a pained expression.
Tilura had also been ill when I had first met Ms. Claire.
I had heard that the fever wouldn’t subside, so something similar was happening here…
A cold could have different symptoms, but this time they were the same, according to Sebastian.
“So it’s a cold…It’s the same in this world then.”
“A cold? You know about this illness, Mr. Takumi?”
“It was very common in the world that I come from.”
It was something that everyone experiences.
And while it was not to be treated too lightly, you could acquire medicine very easily, and some people would get better after sleeping a little.
It was a common illness.
“Mr. Takumi, since it is the same illness as Lady Tilura…”
While Sebastian was not a doctor, he had been watching Tilura closely while she was ill, and recognized the symptoms.
And since Tilura had recovered immediately after drinking the Ramogi, he was sure that it would do the same here.
And I had made Ramogi many times.
Yes…it was like we were linked.
“Anna. We’ll be out in the gardens. You stay here and look after these people.”
Ms. Claire had been listening to us, and so told Anna to wait as the three of us went out into the orphanage garden.
The reason that we didn’t bring Anne or anyone else, was so that they wouldn’t see Weed Cultivation.
“Thank you, Mr. Takumi. While this isn’t related to selling the herbs…”
“I am with you in wanting to help the children. It’s fine.”
“You will be paid once we return to the mansion, Mr. Takumi…”
As the children of the orphanage were in pain, I wanted to help them if I could.
However, Sebastian insisted that I would be rewarded.
I really didn’t need it, as I thought of it as volunteer work…
“Ah, but before I use Weed Cultivation, Sebastian. How many people are there in the orphanage in all?”
“I believe there are thirty-one, if you count all the adults and children.”
Thirty-one… And add everyone who came here today…and some extras. Forty should be enough.
“All right, here goes.”
“Thank you, Mr. Takumi.”
I said, and then I crouched and put my hands on the ground.
And then I thought about the familiar Ramogi. The shape and effect, and then used Weed Cultivation.
