My Beloved Dog is the Strongest in Another World - Chapter 141
I Studied Medicine with Milina
“All right, that’s enough training for now.”
“You’re finished already, Mr. Takumi?”
As promised, I focused on training for one hour, and was able to do quite a lot.
It was less than usual, but I still had my sword swinging to do at night.
Besides, I will start training with Leo again tomorrow… We didn’t do it today because we had gone to Ractos.
“I have to study now. What about you, Tilura?”
“I’ll continue with my training!”
Tilura had looked puzzled as to why I was finishing early. But when I suggested she could join us, she returned to her training because she did not want to study.
I chuckled at this and left the garden and entered the dining hall… Oh, I better wipe off this sweat first.
Leo was following me, but Sherry stayed with Tilura.
Perhaps she knew that it would be boring if she tagged along?
“Sorry to keep you waiting, Milina.”
“There you are, master.”
Milina and Ms. Lyra were chatting in the dining hall.
They were both raised in the orphanage, and seemed to get along very well.
“So, studying medicine… Where should we start?”
“Master. You haven’t thought about that yet?”
When it came to actually studying it, I didn’t know what to do first.
Learn the different types of herbs? Look up ways to mix and prepare medicine? Study about the symptoms of diseases and what medicine is most effective?
What should we do…
Just then, Milina and Leo looked at me with exasperated expressions.
My authority as a master…!
Well, I never had any to begin with.
“If only Sebastian were here… I think he would have a lot to teach.”
“Mr. Takumi, I have something for you.”
Ms. Lyra offered me a single volume.
I looked at the cover, and it read, ‘Medicine for Beginners. Basic Knowledge. ‘
“Is this from…Sebastian?”
“Yes. He said that I should give it to you if you looked troubled.”
“I see… Thank you.”
So Sebastian had predicted that we would not know where to start with our studies.
It was impressive, but also a little intimidating that he was so perceptive.
Still, I was thankful that he had gone through the trouble in spite of being so busy. And so I would use this book to study the basics with Milina.
“Milina. Today, we will study with this book.”
“Mr. Takumi. Milina only just arrived today. So please keep it brief.”
“I’m fine. I want to study as much as possible!”
Milina answered Ms. Lyra energetically, but it was true that she had only just arrived here today.
And while she had friends here, she had left everyone at the orphanage.
She still needed to unpack her things, and she must be a little tired after traveling. So like Ms. Lyra said, we would keep it short for now.
“As for where we can study… Ms. Lyra, could we use the drawing room?”
“Yes, that’s fine.”
“All right, let’s go to the drawing room, Milina.”
As we were allowed to use the drawing room, we decided to study there.
While we could have used my room, there was only one desk and chair.
For some reason, Leo’s reply was just as enthusiastic as Milina’s as we headed towards the drawing room.
…Could it be that Leo wanted to acquire knowledge of medicine as well?
“Please use these.”
Ms. Lyra prepared some paper for taking notes, as well as quill pens. We would use those to study.
And so we both sat down at the table and opened the book that Sebastian had given to us.
Leo loomed over me from behind so that she could look at the book too.
So you really do want to study…
“Hmm…hmm… I see.”
“Mmm… It’s so complicated…”
We read the book and then wrote down the important points onto the sheets of paper.
Apparently, Milina was finding it a little difficult to understand.
“…Master… Excuse me. But what does this mean?”
Occasionally, she would ask me questions about the contents, and I would explain it to her as we read the book.
Leo was nodding in the back… Did she really understand?
“Hmm… This makes me want to conduct some tests with the herbs…”
“Are you going to use your ability, master?”
“Well, there is a lot that I would like to do… But…see here…”
When I considered using Weed Cultivation to test something I had read in the book, Milina showed deep interest.
She wanted to see my ability… However, I had to disappoint her by pointing to a section in the book.
“Uhh… It is dangerous for beginners to mix medicine out of curiosity. One must restrain the desire to demonstrate and acquire knowledge first.”
“That’s what it says.”
“…Too bad. I wanted to see you use the Gift.”
I had been thinking about combining the herbs… By doing this, you could make medicine with different kinds of effects.
However, the book warned against doing such things.
And I had to agree… I might accidentally make something toxic or with no effect at all.
“You want to see it that bad?”
“Yes. It’s not every day that you get to see such miracles!”
Milina answered with sparkling eyes.
Was it really something to be so excited over…? Well, I suppose it was similar to a miracle…
“Then I can show it to you tomorrow.”
“Really!? But, the book said…”
“I’m not going to be concocting anything. I’m just going to grow some herbs, since I have to do that anyway. That requires Weed Cultivation, so you can come and watch.”
“Is that so! Thank you!”
I made herbs nearly every day in order to send them to Mr. Kalis.
As I was only growing them, there was no danger.
So that was something that I could show Milina.
