My Beloved Dog is the Strongest in Another World - Chapter 161
We Departed From Ractos
“As for any obstruction, I’ll have some of the mansion guards posted here. That should be enough to deal with them.”
“Indeed. It would be a great relief to have people who are as finely trained as them. Besides, they are Duke Ekenhart’s own men, so my trust in them is immense.”
Mr. Ekenhart was a master swordsman, so anyone he trained should be able to beat any ruffians with ease.
I had only spent time with a few of them, like Phillip, Nicholas, and Johanna, but they all seemed terribly reliable… Though, I hadn’t actually seen them fight. It was just the way they carried themselves.
“As for how to prevent them from buying… What can be done?”
That was unusual. Sebastian asked Mr. Kalis for a suggestion.
While Sebastian was reliable for his great wealth of knowledge, it seemed that he didn’t know that much when it came to trade.
“…Indeed… What about setting a limit to how much you can buy? From what I understand, you do not need much to treat the illness. In that case, we can explain this to customers and limit everyone to only buying one.”
“I see…that would prevent them from buying in bulk. However, what about people who are buying for their whole family?”
“In such cases, they will have to explain and offer some evidence that they speak the truth.”
Suggested Mr. Kalis, and they quickly decided on various countermeasures.
One person could buy up to two, and if they needed more than that for their family, one of the clerks would confirm that they were telling the truth.
It was also brought up that the malicious store could send several people to this store, but this in itself would offer information about them.
Besides, we didn’t want to add too much to Mr. Kalis’s workload.
And if they happened to use more violent and threatening methods…the mansion guards would handle it.
“Well, here are the herbs for you to sell while I am away.”
“Yes, thank you. I’ll have Nick focus on working here in the meantime.”
“Thank you. I’ll let you know as soon as I return.”
Now that they had decided on everything, I took out the herbs from my bag and handed them to Mr. Kalis.
Now Nick would not have to come to the mansion for a few days.
I hoped he would work hard in Mr. Kalis’s store and learn how to treat customers properly.
Now that our business there was over, Sebastian and I left the store.
As I had to leave through the east of the town in order to go to Range village, I headed towards the east gate.
“Mr. Takumi, here is a map that will help you.”
While Sebastian had given me directions on how to reach it, he also handed me a map, just in case.
Perhaps I was lucky. He had just happened to see one that was being sold in town, and had bought it for me.
“It really is close to a straight line, just as you said.”
“Yes. There is one place where the main road branches off, but it is not complex at all.”
I spread out the map in order to look at it. The map was filled with details on the area surrounding the town of Ractos.
Range village was basically a straight line from it to the east.
As Sebastian said, there was a branching path to the north. But as long as we didn’t go there, it was unlikely that we could get lost.
“Now, please be careful, Mr. Takumi. And we will be waiting for your quick return.”
“You should be careful as well, while you continue the investigation.”
“Yes, I know.”
When we were near the east gate, Sebastian said that he was going to investigate the store, and so we would part ways there.
With a deep bow, he left. I hoped he would be as careful as possible.
There was still much that we didn’t know about the store. And if they found out that someone from the duke’s house was sniffing around, they might try and do something.
“Also, Mr. Takumi. Don’t forget what I told you when teaching you to use magic. If anything were to happen to you, Lady Claire…and Lyra would mourn.”
“Don’t worry, I don’t intend on allowing that to happen, but… Well, I’ll think of every option and run when it’s the right time.”
Sebastian’s last warning… If I encounter an enemy that I can’t defeat, then I should run away.
Your life was the most important thing.
As for the thing he said after that, with a knowing grin, I would ignore it.
“All right, let’s go, Leo!”
As soon as we were out of the gates, I climbed onto Leo’s back and she started to run.
“As we were delayed a little, please run a little faster!”
While we hadn’t even lost a full hour, I still wanted to deliver the Ramogi to the village as soon as possible.
And so I asked Leo to run at a slightly faster speed than usual.
My baggage acted as a cushion, and I held on tight so that I wouldn’t fall.
Leo replied enthusiastically, and then began to run at what felt like double speed.
…Uh, maybe it was too fast?
I was surprised that I was able to hang on… But perhaps it was because my training had toughened me up.
“…Leo. Run a little farther away from the main road!”
“You’re startling people we pass by!”
As I held on tightly, I shouted for Leo to move away from the road.
As she was moving at such a great speed, I had to shout loudly in order to be heard. Well…Leo actually had good ears, so maybe I didn’t need to.
At first, Leo seemed like she was puzzled by the request, but she then understood and so moved away a little.
For nearly an hour after departing Ractos, Leo had surprised travelers moving in both directions by the incredible speed at which she ran.
But who wouldn’t be surprised by the sight of a giant Silver Fenrir running down the road?
I had even seen panicking horses, and people throwing away belongings and running. That was how scary Leo looked to them.
They did not know Leo, but only saw a Silver Fenrir, the embodiment of horror.
Well, some may not have even realized she was a Silver Fenrir. But they still saw a huge monster…
