My Beloved Dog is the Strongest in Another World - Chapter 142
I Trained With Leo
Leo started to bark every time me and Milina started to talk about something else, and it looked like we weren’t focused on our studies.
Hurry up and turn to the next page… That’s what she was saying. But was she really learning as well…?
And was it necessary…for a Silver Fenrir to study and learn about medicine?
“Mr. Takumi, Milina. Why don’t you take a break now?”
“Ah… I didn’t realize that so much time had passed.”
“It’s starting to get dark.”
As I, Milina and Leo concentrated on reading, Ms. Lyra called out to us.
And when I looked outside, I saw that the sun was already descending… We had been so focused, I suppose.
“Hmm. I guess that’s enough for today then.”
“Or we could continue studying after a short break?”
“Well, it’s almost dinner time. And there are other things that I’d like to do. So this is enough for today.”
As Ms. Lyra started to pour some tea for us, I told Milina that we would stop studying for the day.
It was just around the point that studying was becoming enjoyable, and so I understood why she felt like she hadn’t had enough. But it wasn’t good to study too much all at once…
Besides, this was her first day, and she was bound to become tired soon.
Even Leo was nodding her head in agreement… And she really had been looking at the book the whole time…
“Here you are.”
I thanked Ms. Lyra as I drank the tea that she poured and sighed.
We hadn’t been moving, but studying meant using your head instead.
And so the delicious tea helped soothe my brain…
“This tea is so good. I’ve never had anything like it before.”
“Ms. Lyra’s tea is always delicious.”
Milina was surprised by how good the tea was.
The tea leaves would have been of very fine quality, and it was brewed most expertly. And so it would be very different from what she was used to at the orphanage.
I watched as Ms. Lyra prepared milk for Leo and then I sat back and relaxed.
Then Ms. Gelda came in and said that dinner was ready, so we all moved to the dining hall.
We were told that the things we used to study would be taken to our rooms… Thank you.
“You’ll be with us today, Milina.”
“Me…? Are you certain?”
“It’s fine, because you are here as a guest today.”
While she would be treated as a servant tomorrow, she was a guest today. And so she would eat at the same table as Ms. Claire.
This was her first time in the mansion, and the great dining hall and huge table… It was no wonder that someone raised in an orphanage might hesitate.
“Why don’t you accept the kind offer?”
“If you say so, master… I will.”
Milina nodded and then sat down at the table.
She was sitting next to Leo…on the other side that I was sitting.
As always, Ms. Claire sat at the other end, and Tilura, who had finished training, sat next to her.
Sebastian must have still been busy, as he was nowhere to be seen.
Ms. Lyra and Ms. Gelda stood waiting as always, but… I thought Ms. Lyra had gone to put away our studying materials. Yet she had returned already…
“This is delicious. I never dreamed that I would eat something like this!”
As soon as she started eating, Milina let out a cry of emotion at how good the food was.
This was no surprise, since Ms. Helena had worked hard to make it.
“Hehehe. I’m sure Helena will be happy to hear you say that.”
Ms. Claire watched with amusement as Milina gushed about the food.
Upon realizing that she was being watched, Milina looked a little embarrassed, but she could not win against her appetite, and she continued to gorge herself.
After that, dinner and tea time ended uneventfully.
Milina went to her room with Ms. Gelda.
I went out to the garden to practice swinging with Tilura.
As I hadn’t been able to train much due to my studies, I focused on my swings more than usual.
“Good work, Tilura.”
“I did my best today. And I’ll do my best tomorrow!”
After finishing, I said good night to Tilura and then washed up before returning to my room.
“I suppose I should read ahead.”
When I returned to my room, I noticed that the book we had been reading was now lying on my desk.
Ms. Lyra must have put it there.
And so I sat down and started to read it.
If I was going to be called master, then I should at least prepare ahead for tomorrow’s lesson.
“You can read, Leo?”
As Leo had muttered as if deep in thought while looking over my shoulder, I asked her.
Leo nodded… So she could read… That was amazing. Silver Fenrirs…
Though, I didn’t know how much of it she understood.
“Hmm…hmm… I see.”
And so Leo and I read the book together late into the night.
While it meant less sleep, this was still important.
After breakfast on the following day, I went out into the garden with Milina in order to show her Weed Cultivation.
I had already finished my training with Leo, and so I moved over to a secluded area and used Weed Cultivation.
…Once again, I hadn’t been able to hit Leo… I knew it wouldn’t be easy, but it still made me feel frustrated.
“I saw you use it before, but it really is strange.”
“Yes. Even I think so, and I’m the one using it.”
Milina muttered as she stared at my hands intently.
While it was my own ability, the sight of plants growing rapidly out of the ground was something that I never got used to.
“You really are amazing, master!”
Said Milina with shining eyes as I finished using the Gift, and handed the day’s herbs to Ms. Lyra.
It was a little embarrassing.
“Mr. Takumi. Nick has arrived.”
“I see. I’ll go right now.”
Ms. Gelda had come to tell me that Nick was here.
I met him in the waiting room and handed him the herbs that Ms. Lyra had put into a bag, and then my work for the day was over.
…While I usually had to rely on my ability, my job often felt like it was almost too easy…?
I used to have to sweat a lot with my previous job, so it felt questionable to have it so easy now.
Well, I wanted to live a slow, relaxed life. So maybe this was fine after all.
