My Beloved Dog is the Strongest in Another World - Chapter 130
I Learned About What Happened At The Orphanage
After I had finished growing the Ramogi, I passed it around to everyone in the orphanage.
Of course, I had been sure to dry all of it so that it could be used immediately.
Ms. Anna and the others accepted it and had the sick children drink it.
Half an hour later, most of them seemed to have recovered.
However, a few remained weak.
“No, I’m just glad that I was able to help you.”
Ms. Anna and the children who had recovered all came out in order to thank me.
No longer were their faces contorted in agony, and they were all cheerful smiles.
The sight of children suffering was not something I wished to see.
“Still, it was amazing that you were able to secure enough medicine in such a short amount of time.”
“Mr. Takumi is a brilliant physician.”
While Ms. Anna was astonished at my ability to provide so much of the Ramogi at once, Ms. Claire explained that it was because I was a good physician.
…Was that even an explanation?
“Also, anyone who didn’t get sick should drink these.”
“That is the same thing that the others drank… But why?”
“Prevention and precaution. Perhaps some are ill, and just don’t know it yet as there are no symptoms.”
I didn’t know if it was even a concept in this world…they did not seem to know much about medicine at all.
Besides, there was also the latent period.
But I didn’t want to explain this, and just said it was a precaution.
“You too, Ms. Claire and Sebastian. Also, Tilura and Johanna should take it as well.”
“I will deliver it to them right away.”
And so I handed them the Ramogi.
Sebastian immediately went to deliver it to Tilura and Johanna, along with some water.
Tilura had been sick only a short while ago, so she was probably fine, but there was no harm in being safe.
That’s why I had made extra herbs.
Besides, if it was spreading through the orphanage, then it was probably spreading throughout the area. It would be best to make some for the servants once we return to the mansion as well.
“Still, it’s a good thing we were able to tell what illness it was.”
“Indeed. However, Ramogi is supposed to be quite affordable in this town… Anne. What is happening?”
“Well…once it started to spread, people started buying all of the Ramogi from the stores. Though, I did hear that there are people who are testing with different herbs in order to find a cure.”
I suppose those with money were doing what they could to help heal people by conducting tests with herbs and medicine.
However, that had resulted in there not being enough for the orphanage.
“I went around the town and asked at different stores, but it seems that starting around two weeks ago, all the herbs would be bought as soon as there was new stock. And it was as I was wondering what to do that I heard of a new store that sold Ramogi for cheap…”
“I see. And this is the store that claimed to be connected to a noble house.”
As I was talking to Ms. Anna, Sebastian returned.
And so Ms. Claire told him what we had just heard.
“So that’s the reason… It would explain why we couldn’t get Ramogi for Tilura.”
They had not been able to acquire Ramogi quickly when it was Tilura who was ill.
And now it seemed like it was because there was none being sold in town.
That’s why Ms. Claire had left the mansion.
“There is something suspicious about this store and the blight…”
“Indeed… It will require a thorough investigation.”
Ms. Claire and Sebastian were muttering to each other. But could there really be more to it?
“What is it?”
“Mr. Takumi. It so happens that the store in question appeared at the same time that the illness started to spread.”
“From what we heard, the store appeared over two weeks ago. And the sickness started to spread around two weeks ago as well. And it was during this time that the stores started to run out of their stock of herbs…”
“So you think that it was all planned by this one store?”
“No. I wouldn’t go that far… Well, I do think it was them who bought all of the herbs to create a shortage.”
Hmm… In other words, once they detected the spread of the disease, they opened the store.
And then they bought the stock from the other stores so that customers would come to them…
“…Perhaps they were reselling those herbs after mixing them with something else.”
“That is definitely possible. …Lady Claire, I must leave you for now.”
“Yes. I’m counting on you.”
And then Sebastian left the room.
“Where did he go?”
“To investigate the matter. It’s no longer something that Nicholas can handle alone. People must be called from the mansion, and word must be sent to my father.”
So Sebastian had acted because he realized that this would require a thorough investigation and report.
Still, what were we supposed to do after being left here?
“Could we stay here until he returns, Anna?”
“Of course, stay for as long as you like. The children will be happy.”
So it was decided that we would wait here.
With Ms. Anna’s permission, we had the children all gather in the garden.
Of course, it was only the children who were well. The others continued to rest in their beds.
“All right, Leo. You can play with everyone now!”
I brought Leo into the orphanage garden so that she could play with Tilura and the other children.
While it was not as large as the garden at the mansion, it was still large enough for Leo to enter.
At the very least, she could do some light running.
“She’s so big!”
“Wow! So fluffy!”
“I haven’t been able to play with you all for a while!”
The children were excited and filled with curiosity when Leo appeared.
Tilura had visited this place before, and she was happy to be able to play with other children her own age.
Even Sherry seemed to be having fun as she barked from on top of Leo’s back.
“It’s nice to see that they are all better.”
“Yes. Thanks to you, Mr. Takumi. I am glad to see them having so much fun like this.”
“Lady Claire, Mr. Takumi. Thank you so much.”
A table was set out in the garden, and Ms. Claire, Anna and I sat there and watched Leo play with the children.
Ms. Anna thanked us again, but being able to see them all like this was more than enough.
And so for some time after that, we smiled and watched the children play in the garden.
