My Beloved Dog is the Strongest in Another World - Chapter 144
A Villager Visited the Mansion
After that, the next few days passed by uneventfully.
In the mornings after breakfast, I would train with Leo and use Weed cultivation.
And then I would hand them to Nick, and continue training.
In the afternoon, I would study with Milina.
When I asked Sebastian, he gave me some medium-level books, and so we used those now.
…Compared to the first one, it was a lot harder, but we somehow managed to go through them and discuss what we learned.
After dinner, I practiced my swings, studied ahead, and then went to sleep… This was repeated over and over.
As for Milina, she learned to be a servant in her free time.
“Lady Claire, you have a guest.”
Days later, after we had finished eating lunch, a visitor came to the mansion.
Ms. Lyra came to the dining hall and announced it to Ms. Claire.
“To see me? But there were no plans for such a visit…”
Ms. Claire looked puzzled by this, but followed Ms. Lyra out of the dining hall… Well, that’s what I thought they would do, but then Ms. Lyra turned to me.
“I think it must be related to you as well, Mr. Takumi. Will you come with us?”
“Me? Very well.”
In what way could this guest be related to me…?
But when I thought about it, the only thing that came to mind was the herbs. It was something that all the servants of the house knew about…
While it was strange, I got up from my chair and followed Ms. Lyra.
Leo, Sherry, and Tilura decided to stay behind.
It was a good thing, as Leo usually startled people she was meeting for the first time.
“Forgive me for disturbing you at this time.”
“Who are you?”
“My name is Hannes. I’m the chief of Range village. This is my granddaughter, Rosalie.”
“I am Rosalie.”
Upon entering the drawing room with Ms. Claire, an old man and a young girl got up from their chairs and bowed.
They introduced themselves and then Ms. Claire sat down on the other side of the table.
…Where should I sit…? Next to Ms. Claire?
While uncertain, I sat down anyway… And no one said anything, so it was probably fine.
“I am Claire. Claire Liebert. And I am currently managing this estate.”
“Lady Claire… Ah…we have heard stories. I came here today so that I may ask for your help.”
“I will listen to what you have to say.”
After being encouraged to talk by Ms. Claire, the old man…Mr. Hannes, began to explain.
“Currently, an illness is spreading through Range village.”
I couldn’t help but mutter.
Hannes glanced towards me, but continued.
“Yes. At first it was just one of the young ones. But then it started to spread day after day…”
And now, the majority of the village has fallen ill… That’s what he said.
“But not you two, Mr. Hannes?”
“Both my granddaughter and I were ill at one point. But after testing various medicines, we realized that Ramogi was the most effective.”
“So we drank Ramogi and were healed.”
She looked to be about ten years old. Maybe a little older than Tilura, and looked very lively.
Though, she also seemed quite nervous, as she was in front of Lady Claire.
“You drank the Ramogi… So it must be the same illness that we saw at the Ractos orphanage.”
“I see. But, why have you come here?”
“The Ramogi that we used was the last in the village. And so we went to Ractos in order to buy more…”
“But there was hardly any left to buy…”
Because of the malicious store, there was not a lot of good Ramogi in stock in the town.
Other stores were restocking it now, but there was still not enough to meet demand.
And while I was sending some to Mr. Kalis, it wasn’t a lot.
“But we continued to search the town…but every store was low… But then one kind person suggested a certain store to me.”
“But when we went there…they gave us some strange medicine.”
“Strange medicine…? Could it be…?”
“Yes. It must be that store that Sebastian is looking into.”
So after walking around Ractos, they reached that store…
“As the leader of my village, I have some knowledge of medicine. And so I could tell that there was something wrong with what they were selling.”
“My grandfather is amazing.”
Rosalie said boastfully.
While she was nervous, she couldn’t help but be happy about her grandfather being able to tell that the medicine was bad.
“Yes, it’s a good thing you didn’t buy it.”
Ms. Claire said with a smile.
“But finding out that our last hope was selling fake medicine…we were at a complete loss.”
The medicine was of bad quality, so it couldn’t be helped that people would call it fake.
“And yet, I was desperate. And so I continued to search Ractos…when I heard rumors of a certain store. And when I followed them, I arrived at a store run by a Mr. Kalis.”
“And they were selling the herbs and medicine that were out of stock.”
“However…it was still not enough to heal everyone in the village.”
That was obvious. I was the one supplying that store with herbs. And an entire village… Well, even if it wasn’t everyone, it was still a lot of people, and I couldn’t make that much.
And I was already sending herbs to Mr. Kalis so that they could reach the people of Ractos.
“And so we asked Mr. Kalis.”
“He said that the store was owned by the duke. And he told us that if we came here, you might be able to help us.”
“I see. So it was by Mr. Kalis’s recommendation that you visited.”
Mr. Kalis knew how the herbs were being made.
And so while he didn’t tell them how…he must have thought that their problem could be solved if they came here.
Perhaps Ms. Lyra had also heard of the matter in advance.
And so she wanted me to be here.
“Please. Will you help us…!”
Mr. Hannes and Rosalie stood up and bowed to Ms. Claire.
Ms. Claire saw this and stopped to think.
“Mr. Takumi. Could I have a word with you?”
“Hannes, Rosalie. Please wait one moment.”
And so while they waited, Ms. Claire and I talked to each other in hushed voices.
