My Beloved Dog is the Strongest in Another World - Chapter 169
For some reason, I did not get drunk
“This wine iss soo goood…! I might have…drunk a little too much… Mr. Takumi, you should drink more!”
“It definitely looks like you’ve drunk too much. And I don’t think it was just a little…”
While he could still talk just fine, his movements were wobbly and unstable
Besides, he usually talked in a very formal manner, but that was no longer the case.
“Ahaha! I thought being a guard was such a boring job…never did I think that something like this would be part of it…! Ahh! I have not had wine like this in a loooong timee…”
“How much have you had…? Don’t you think you should rest a little?”
I was not good at dealing with drunkards.
I had actually drunk quite a lot of wine already. Either Phillip had drunk considerably more than me, or he was weaker to alcohol…
“I’m fiiine! This wine is known for being strong, so I have to drink it while I can… Besides, it’s too expensive for me to buy…”
“The wine is strong…?”
I was starting to feel a little worried about Phillip. Also, I was confused by what he said about the wine being strong.
That suggested it had high alcohol content… As for it being expensive, it made sense, given how delicious it was.
But if it is strong, you should get drunk from just drinking a little.
It didn’t matter how resistant you were, it was easier to get drunk the higher the percentage was.
I didn’t know if Phillip was strong to it or not, but it was strange that I didn’t feel drunk in spite of drinking so much… After all, I usually felt tipsy after having a single beer..
“Ahahaha! Please enjoy yourself, Mr. Takumi…”
Phillip said with a laugh as he walked away on shaky feet. And then I looked at the other villagers who were gathered.
…At least there were other people here, so I didn’t have to worry about Phillip… I just hoped he didn’t do anything strange…
The villagers were all eating and drinking happily around the tables. And at least half of them looked quite red in the face.
Since they were healed, the redness could not be because they were sick.
Of course, Leo and the children were not drinking, but most of the adults were.
“…Those who aren’t drunk haven’t been drinking much in the first place…”
I could see that the people who weren’t red had left their cups of wine on the table, and were focusing on eating their food.
“Mr. Takumi, what is the matter?”
Mr. Hannes was wondering why I was looking at the villagers so intently.
“I was just thinking about this wine… Is it easy to get drunk with it?”
“Indeed… I have a rather high tolerance myself, so I cannot say… But the villagers here seem to think it is very strong. And since it is so delicious, it is easy to drink too much.”
As expected, the wine made in this village was strong.
I didn’t know if that was necessarily considered a good thing…but considering its price, it was probably better if you didn’t need to drink too much to feel the effects…?
“Oh, Mr. Takumi. You’ve emptied the barrel already? Should I bring another one?”
“…No, I’m fine. I would like some water, please.”
I was sure that when Mr. Hannes first brought the barrel to this table, that it had been filled.
Obviously, I had not drunk all of it by myself, but I had definitely gotten a little carried away because it was so good.
And yet, I felt perfectly fine.
…Why was that…?
“It’s strange… I was never this strong with alcohol before…”
As I muttered to myself, Leo, who looked a little tired after eating so much, tilted her head with a puzzled expression.
Next to her, a few children had come to play, and they were currently petting her long, fluffy fur.
Leo wagged her tail to keep them amused… That was very clever of her…
“Leo. I don’t feel drunk for some reason… Do you know why?”
I couldn’t help but ask her. Of course, she did not know the reason.
“Mr. Takumi, I’ve brought you some water.”
Leo only tilted her head, and so I turned away and drank the water that Mr. Hannes had brought.
…Perhaps my body had changed after coming to this world…? But aside from this one thing, I had not really felt any other differences… Except being able to use the Gift, that is…
Still, for me, being drunk had usually been an…unpleasant sensation, and so I didn’t actually mind it…
If I’m not going to get drunk, perhaps I can continue to drink more wine…? I thought of such things, but held back and just drank water as the feast continued until midnight.
…As Leo could not enter the house, she slept in the stables with the horses that Philip and Mr. Hannes rode on… I should hurry up and sleep as well… Even if I don’t have a hangover, I will still be tired from a lack of sleep…
“Now that I think about it, where did that drunkard, Phillip go off to?”
After the feast, I had gone to bedroom that Mr. Hannes had prepared for me in his house. And that was when I remembered Phillip.
He did not seem stable on his feet, and I was worried that he might get lost somewhere.
What if he woke up in someone else’s house… I hoped that would not happen…
“What if he woke up with some woman he doesn’t even know… The maids back at the mansion will hate him when they find out.”
I thought to myself as I looked out the window. The sky was starting to turn a little pale as I lay down to sleep.
I would have to get up soon, but I would sleep while I could…
