My Beloved Dog is the Strongest in Another World - Chapter 148
I Decided to Learn Magic from Sebastian
“I was thinking, Mr. Takumi, that I should teach you to use magic, just in case.”
Now that I thought about it, Sebastian had explained magic to me when I first came to this mansion.
Though, he hadn’t been able to finish, as Tilura interrupted him.
When looking into my Gift in Ractos, it was revealed that I had an aptitude for magic as well, so I should be able to use it if I wanted to.
“Currently, you are training to use the sword, with His Grace as your tutor. However, there will be times when a sword alone is not enough to deal with a situation.”
As I had not been training for that long yet, I could hardly be considered a full-fledged swordsman.
While I had been able to deal with Nick, that was not enough to make me feel confident at all.
What if I were to meet someone who could easily outclass my meager sword skills… I could rely on Leo, but it was good to have options.
“Indeed… As Leo is always with me, I doubt such a thing will happen any time soon… But you never know what could happen. Perhaps it is necessary.”
“Yes. After all, you might encounter monsters on the way. Of course, I can only teach you simple magic… But I think it would be good if you learned a few spells before your departure.
“Very well. It’s to protect myself, after all. Thank you.”
I had seen a few different spells up until now.
None of them seemed like they could help me fight monsters, but they would still be useful.
So, what kind of magic would Sebastian teach me…
And so it was with a feeling of excitement that I returned to the garden where Tilura was.
“I wasn’t able to concentrate much today.”
After doing my swings with Tilura, I returned to my room with a feeling of regret.
My excitement for learning magic had distracted me.
Tilura had no such problem with concentration… I had to do better.
“Yes. I have to concentrate when the time calls for it.”
I agreed as Leo looked at me admonishingly.
But from tomorrow, there will be magic and training, growing herbs and studying medicine… That was a lot to do…
The next day, Mr. Hannes and his granddaughter ate breakfast and departed for their village.
“Thank you for your hospitality, Lady Claire.”
I stepped outside with Ms. Claire in order to see them off.
Ms. Claire smiled at their words and nodded.
“Good Leo. We’ll be waiting for you in the village!”
Leo went up to Rosalie in order to say goodbye.
Rosalie smiled and petted Leo.
They were good friends now. That was nice to see.
“Keep them safe, Phillip.”
“Yes, my lady.”
Phillip nodded at Ms. Claire and got on his horse.
While Mr. Hannes and Rosalie had come here by themselves, Phillip would escort them back.
This was to protect them and ensure that they made it back to the village.
“Well, I’ll see you there, Mr. Hannes.”
“Yes. I’ll be waiting for you.”
I said to him as he and Rosalie got onto their horses. And then they trotted off into the distance.
Still, Mr. Hannes rode well for a man of his age.
…I suppose I should also learn how to ride a horse?
Well, there was so much to do now, so that could wait.
Besides, I can just ride Leo.
“Well, I’m going to go train and make some herbs.”
“Thank you, Mr. Takumi.”
“Not at all.”
And then I went to the garden with Leo.
There, I joined up with Tilura and Sherry, who were waiting, and we trained together.
After that, I had Milina help me as I grew more Ramogi and other herbs.
“Phew… That’s enough for today.”
“Good work, master.”
Thanks to Milina’s help, I was able to prepare quite a lot of Ramogi.
Mr. Hannes had told me how much they needed, and this still wasn’t enough. But at this rate, I would be able to prepare eighty percent by the time I had to leave.
And then the rest could be grown when we arrived or during breaks on the way.
Though, it was sometimes hard to have to keep reminding myself to be careful and not push myself too much.
“This portion is to take to Ractos tomorrow. Also, as I’ll be away from the mansion for a while, there is a little extra for that as well.”
“Aye, I see.”
It was even harder, since I had to consider the amount to send to Ractos as well.
I wouldn’t be able to make any for them while I was away, so I had to make extra now.
That was why I barely had enough to take to Range village.
“Master, what about this part…?”
After giving the herbs to Nick, we ate lunch and then I started studying with Milina.
While we usually studied until evening, as I now had to take magic lessons with Sebastian, it was cut short to just a few hours.
“Mr. Takumi. It’s time.”
“I understand. Milina, sorry that we have to cut it short today.”
“It’s fine. I still have things to learn as a servant of this house. So I’ll concentrate on that.”
As Ms. Lyra had come to tell me that it was time, we finished studying.
I felt quite bad for Milina about this, and apologized.
However, as she was also learning to be a servant, there was a lot that she had to learn, and so she was fine prioritizing that for now.
I was grateful for this as I went out to the garden where Sebastian waited.
“Now, let us begin, Mr. Takumi.”
“Yes, thank you.”
I arrived in the garden and Sebastian’s magic lesson began.
As it could be dangerous to use magic indoors, we decided to do it in the garden.
Thankfully, Tilura wasn’t out here today.
Ms. Claire had taken her away to study.
“Now, magic is… Well, do you remember what I explained to you previously…?”
“Yes, I do.”
Something about requiring magic energy and using chants to convert it…I think.
By vocalizing it, you decide the attribute, like fire or water. And then you decided how to activate it.
He had been in the middle of talking about using magic without chanting, but then Tilura had interrupted us.
