My Beloved Dog is the Strongest in Another World - Chapter 155
I Leisurely Drank Tea with Ms. Lyra
“Mr. Takumi. What will you do after lunch?”
“I’ll focus on growing herbs again. I still don’t have as much as I want.”
“…Please be careful.”
Ms. Claire sounded worried as we ate lunch.
“I’m pretty sure that I’m fine. I mean, it’s not completely clear to me, but… I used Weed Cultivation early in the morning, and then switched to magic training. So I haven’t been doing it for long stretches.”
It wasn’t quite known what power the Gift actually used, but if it recovered naturally over time, then those breaks should have helped a little.
With tea breaks and magic training, as well as lunch, it should be safe for me to start using it again.
…Unless it turned out that I actually had to sleep in order for it to recover. My theory could be completely off.
Well, I still doubted that I was near the limit. It was probably fine… At least, that was what I hoped.
“As for that, it is something that will have to be studied further.”
Sebastian was standing by as we ate lunch. I hadn’t seen him here for a while.
He was usually so busy with regards to that store. But I suppose he had more time now… Though, that probably meant there was little progress.
Regardless, that was his reaction when I told him what I was thinking.
Basically, he had no reason to doubt me, but he had no reason to agree either.
“Don’t worry about me. I won’t be fainting anymore.”
“Yes… I do not need to see something like that again. And so you must continue to be careful.”
After eating, I chuckled and assured her that I was fine, and then I went out into the garden.
Milina was busy with her servant training now… I hope she learned how to brew tea well, just as she wanted.
“I’ll have to gather the herbs myself now.”
“Oh, I can help you.”
“Are you sure, Ms. Lyra?”
When I reached the garden, I realized that since Milina wasn’t there, I would have to gather and wrap up the herbs myself.
However, Ms. Lyra then followed after me and offered to help.
I did feel bad, since she was also keeping an eye on Tilura and would prepare tea for us…
“You really don’t need to hesitate to ask us for help, Mr. Takumi.”
“…But I can’t help but feel bad about it.”
However, Ms. Lyra clearly didn’t agree.
I suppose it was that I wasn’t used to living with butlers and maids surrounding me. And so I preferred to do things on my own.
But if she insisted, maybe I would rely on them a little more in the future.
I suppose she would feel better to be of service, as long as it wasn’t anything ridiculous.
“In that case, I’ll gladly accept your help.”
And so I left the gathering and separating of the different types of herbs to Ms. Lyra, and I used Weed Cultivation.
As Tilura had to study after lunch, she was not here.
But I could see Sherry and Leo sleeping under the sun.
And so the garden was quiet, with only the sounds of Ms. Lyra and I moving around.
“Mr. Takumi… Surely this is enough?”
“…I want a little more… For Ractos… And more Ramogi for Range village as well…”
As the sun was starting to set, Ms. Lyra became concerned again.
In fact, I had actually made more than I had initially planned.
As I would be gone for a few days, I wanted to make extra herbs to send to Ractos…
“But…you look tired. I think you better rest at the very least.”
“I’m sorry to worry you… Very well, I’ll rest.”
I could not argue with Ms. Lyra as she peered into my face, and so I decided to rest.
However, she seemed pleased as she started to pour the tea.
But as she had been helping since lunch…she was probably tired as well… I then noticed that my back hurt a little.
While using the Gift didn’t make me tired, crouching with my hands on the ground while growing herbs, as well as picking them, was quite like working in the fields.
“Here. I hope it helps you to relax a little.”
“Mmm… Thank you. You rest too, Ms. Lyra.”
“No, I don’t…”
“I was able to do a lot more than I expected, thanks to your help. And you must be tired as well? Here, don’t hesitate.”
“…Very well… Phew…”
I stretched my sore limbs and then thanked Ms. Lyra for the tea as I sat down.
As she had been helping me the whole time, I knew that she was tired as well.
And so I had to get up once and steer Ms. Lyra over to the chair so she would sit down.
She did so reluctantly, but then let out a pleased sigh as she tasted the tea that she had poured.
So she really was tired… I felt bad all over again for allowing her to help me.
“Now that I think about it…this is the first time we’ve sat together at a table, isn’t it?”
“Yes. I am a maid of this house, after all… It is not proper for me to sit with Lady Claire and the others.”
I suppose that was the typical way to think if you were a servant.
I wasn’t used to such things, and so I was always worried about Ms. Lyra and the others when they stood in the same place for so long.
That being said, it might be uncomfortable for them to be forced to sit at the table as well…
“Well, from now on, I hope that you’ll drink tea with me like this, when you have time.”
“…I suppose that as a maid, I should refuse… But if you truly mean it, Mr. Takumi…”
Ms. Claire and the others weren’t around, and it was only a short rest.
Besides, I was a guest here, and not a nobleman.
I was a commoner, and so I was sure that Ms. Lyra would get used to it quickly.
And so after that, the two of us enjoyed our tea and talked as we rested.
