My Beloved Dog is the Strongest in Another World - Chapter 238
Ms. Anne Made An Unexpected Request
As my sympathy towards Mr. Ekenhart grew, and the idea of giving him some juice entered my head…I remembered something else.
Now that I thought about it, boiling wine wouldn’t turn it into juice. That was strange.
I didn’t know much about it, and just called it that because it was easier… I suppose it was because it was already a very sweet wine, so it tasted similar to juice.
Perhaps the grapes in this world were special, or Ms. Helena had added something to make it easier to drink after boiling it.
In any case, I would just assume that there was something different about Range village wine. Yes…
After all, there was Ramogi and Loe. Things that looked familiar but worked in very different ways.
“Good Leo seems very excited.”
As I thought about such things on the way back to the mansion…Leo ran wildly down the road. Mr. Ekenhart looked like he could barely stay on.
She would run ahead of the carriage and then rush back repeatedly.
Mr. Ekenhart was holding on desperately and letting out something like a scream.
Ms. Claire was watching all of this from the carriage window, and smiled pleasantly at Leo.
Even the screams of a dear father could not shake her… That was a little sad.
…But it was another reminder that I must not get on her bad side.
She was scary, though in a different way from Sebastian.
“Still, that Silver Fenrir really does like to obey orders, doesn’t it?”
“Good Leo is very gentle.”
From within the carriage, Ms. Anne was looking at Leo with great curiosity as she muttered.
…Well, Leo was a very smart little Maltese… She had always been smart and listened to what I said.
“And he is the human that the Silver Fenrir obeys.”
“Yes. And you know all about it, don’t you Anne? How my family is especially attached to Silver Fenrirs.”
“Yes, I know about that. They even appear in the history books. All nobles in this country know about them. …You are Mr. Takumi, aren’t you?”
Ms. Anne was talking about Silver Fenrirs. She now stopped looking out of the window and turned to me.
Now that I thought about it, this was probably the first time we talked directly… Yesterday, Ms. Claire had been so furious, that she set Leo on Ms. Anne right away. So there was no time to talk.
Besides, it seemed like Ms. Anne just thought I was a servant.
Well, I wasn’t a nobleman. So I was still no one of any consequence to a count’s heir. I would have all the significance of a pebble on the side of the road… Or maybe that was going too far?
“So, you are that Silver Fenrir’s master?”
“…Master…we are more like partners. I don’t think of myself as her superior. I think we are equal.”
“Indeed… Equal with a Silver Fenrir… Interesting…”
After hearing my answer, Ms. Anne looked down as if she was deep in thought.
She started to mutter something, but the effect of the herbs had already worn off, and so I couldn’t hear her.
By the way, the carriage was very spacious, and so even with the three of us inside, no one touched anyone else, and it was very comfortable.
There were two seats, and Ms. Claire sat with Ms. Anne, while I sat on the opposite side.
On both sides, there were doors between the seats, which you could go out from, and there were four small windows as well.
This provided a good view of the outside. You could even open the windows to let in some fresh air.
“Yes… With a Silver Fenrir tagging along, it may be a good idea. As for the face… Well, a passing grade at best?”
“…What is it, Anne? Are you thinking of something strange again…”
Ms. Anne continued to look down and mutter quietly under her breath.
Upon seeing this, Ms. Claire questioned her suspiciously, but got no reaction.
It had been Ms. Anne who came up with the whole plan used by her father… And so I had a bad feeling about this.
“Mr. Takumi. Are you… I suppose you are not already married, are you?”
“Huh? Oh, no…”
“What are you asking, Anne?”
Ms. Anne suddenly wanted to know my marital status.
I had never even been close to getting married… In fact, I often wasn’t sure how to act around women…
But I had Leo, which saved me from feeling lonely… It’s true!
Now that I thought about it, Leo had told me to stop beating around the bush…
“Then you simply must be adopted into the family as my husband. And then we could really make something out of House Barsler!”
“Aaaaanne!? What are you saying!?”
“And why should you be so startled, Ms. Claire? Surely it’s only normal for a woman to want to find a good husband?”
Anne had suddenly made a proposal of marriage.
And this was only the first time I had ever spoken to her. What had happened?
But as it was my first proposal, I was also inexperienced with rejecting them.
Ms. Claire was clearly outraged and confused as well.
“He has some worth, because of that Silver Fenrir he commands. And I’m sure that will be very beneficial for my family!”
“You-you think…Mr. Takumi…marrying into Barsler…the thought…”
“No, I wouldn’t…”
“Yes, it is a little surprising… But you wouldn’t even think about refusing, would you? After all, it’s not every day that Count Barsler’s heir makes such offers.”
This Ms. Anne was very straightforward…
Indeed, she was was pretty and supposedly not the most stupid.
But when compared to Ms. Claire… who may have her defects, when it comes to the bust, but…even with that considered, she was overflowing with appeal…
Even I would not have thought like that.
Yes, pretty was pretty… But there was also an unfortunate air about her… And did it matter if she was so beautiful that if she were to walk through the town, that other men would turn to look at her?
But this was the first time we spoke… Such things should not be decided so suddenly…
…Oh, the confusion was clearly getting to me.
