My Beloved Dog is the Strongest in Another World - Chapter 135
I Paid Nick the Herb Carrier
“Mr. Takumi, you have a guest.”
“Someone is here to see me?”
The next day, during my morning training, Ms. Gelda came to call me.
But I barely had any acquaintances in this world. Who could have come to see me?
For some reason, Leo was nodding with a knowing expression. Leo. How would you know, if you were with me this whole time?
While I thought it was strange, I wiped away the sweat and followed Ms. Gelda to the entrance hall.
“Brother, good morning!”
“Yes, it is!”
So it was Nick.
But he no longer had a mohawk like yesterday. He was completely bald…I suppose he had shaved it off. Well, I suppose that might be preferable if he was working at Mr. Kalis’s store now.
His clothes were also no longer covered in spikes. He was wearing regular clothes, and looked quite normal. Though, there was still an intimidating air about him.
…So that explains why Leo was nodding… The spell that Sebastian had cast allowed her to know where he was.
“And what are you doing out here? Did Mr. Kalis throw you out already?”
If Mr. Kalis had driven him out because he was a useless worker, then I would have to go and apologize to him.
After all, I had been the one to hire him and ask that he be placed there.
“Oh, even I wouldn’t get thrown out that quickly! I came here to pick up the herbs.”
“Ah, the herbs.”
Now that I think about it, I had left the job of delivering the herbs to him.
I had completely forgotten, as my mind was filled with the event at the orphanage, as well as thoughts of the malicious store.
Even Sebastian was busy dealing with it.
“What should I do…”
“Are the herbs not ready?”
“Yes, that’s just it… Wait here a moment.”
I left Nick at the entrance and asked Ms. Gelda where Sebastian was. Then I headed there.
“Sebastian. Do you have a moment?”
“Mr. Takumi? Of course.”
The room was an office for the butlers, and was located in a corner on the second floor.
I knocked on the door and Sebastian immediately gave me permission to enter.
I opened the door and stepped inside. There were several desks lined up, and Sebastian was sitting in the back of the room among a pile of documents that were stacked on his desk.
The room reminded me of the old company I used to work at in my previous world…
“Is something the matter?”
“No, it’s just that Nick came to pick up the herbs… What should I do?”
“Now that I think about it, I didn’t give you the order sheet. I’m very sorry, but I was busy organizing the information about this malicious store.”
So Sebastian really was busy with that.
I hadn’t seen him at breakfast, even though he usually waited behind Ms. Claire.
“Hmm…here it is. It is a little more than what was sold yesterday. Is that all right?”
“Uh…yes, I think this should be fine. I could even do more if necessary.”
“Yes. And please don’t overwork yourself either, Sebastian.”
“Hohoho. I know that I’m no longer young, and I know my own limits.”
I accepted the order sheet from Sebastian and then returned to the entrance hall. Then I told Nick to wait a little longer as I went out into the back garden.
I watched Tilura train as I stood next to Leo and used Weed Cultivation.
“These herbs are for today’s order. You can’t eat them.”
As Leo was looking at me with a puzzled expression, I explained what I was doing.
Sherry then started to sniff the plants that had grown from the ground, so I warned her.
It was probably fine, but I didn’t want her to eat them by accident.
“Still, there sure is a lot of Ramogi.”
Even with the herbs that we sold yesterday, the Ramogi had been the first to sell out. And so the number had been increased for today.
Either the illness was starting to spread through the town, or it already had…
I was able to prepare all of the herbs in half an hour.
After changing the herbs into a state where they could be used, I had Ms. Lyra help me by wrapping them up by type.
Wrapping them individually would take time, and so I would leave that to Mr. Kalis.
“Good, it’s ready. Thank you for your help, Ms. Lyra.”
“Not at all, I’m just glad that I could be of use.”
After thanking Ms. Lyra, I returned to the entrance hall where Nick was waiting.
But on the way, I met Ms. Gelda, and was told that Nick was taken to the waiting room, and so I went there instead.
“Sorry to keep you waiting. I’ve brought the herbs.”
“Brother, this really is an amazing place…”
Nick said with a dumbfounded expression as he looked around the room.
Well, it was the duke’s mansion.
All of the furniture looked expensive, and the room was big.
Nick seemed like the kind of person who would not have much experience being in such places, so it was no wonder that he was surprised.
I myself had been stunned when I first came here…
“Don’t do anything strange here. Now, take this with you.”
“Yes, sir! I’ll deliver it to Mr. Kalis no matter what!”
“I’m counting on you. …Oh, also…”
“What is it, brother?”
I stopped Nick just as he was about to leave the room after accepting the bag of herbs.
As he turned around, I put a single gold coin in his hand.
“Here is the payment for now. Multiple days’ worth. You don’t have any money, right?”
“…Brother… Thank you!”
Upon receiving the money, Nick’s eyes seemed to be filled with emotion as he bowed his head repeatedly.
Was it really something to be so happy about?
Well, perhaps it was because he didn’t have money, that he resorted to crime. And so I wanted to ensure that he wouldn’t have that problem anymore.
It was a good thing I had discussed the average rates with Sebastian on the way home.
He said that one gold should cover anywhere between half a month to a month.
“Well, you’ll be making many roundtrips from here to Ractos.”
Since there was a lot of traveling, I had figured that I should give him an incentive.
I suppose it was like traveling expenses, and so I would make it half a month’s pay.
After that, I would consider lowering or raising it depending on how he works.
That was something I would have to ask Mr. Kalis about later.
