My Beloved Dog is the Strongest in Another World - Chapter 340
We decided to not have separate rooms
Liza would become anxious when Leo or I were not around. I suppose she thought that she was going to be left behind.
Apparently, she had been abandoned in the slums shortly after being born, so even if she didn’t remember the situation, it still stayed with her.
Especially since the grandfather who had taken care of her had also died.
I wanted to assure her that she would not be left alone, and that there was nothing to worry about… But it might take some time.
“What is it, papa?”
Liza was sitting Leo’s back and seemed quite happy as I called to her.
In such situations, it was best to just ask the person.
Apparently, she had not been listening to my conversation with Ms. Lyra, and so she smiled and looked at me questioningly.
“Well… They had prepared a room just for you. What do you think?”
“For me? But what about you and mama?”
“This room is just for you. Leo and I will be sleeping in the other room.”
Upon hearing my explanation, Liza realized that it was a room for one person.
She quickly looked at the floor and her expression darkened.
Her ears and tail sagged and it was clear that she did not like the idea.
As if to comfort her, Leo tried to move her face towards Liza, but she could not reach her on her back.
“I see… You won’t really be alone, but… Do you still not like it?”
I moved towards her in Leo’s place and asked her.
While I already knew the answer, it was best to still ask.
“…Yes. I want to be with mama and papa…”
“I see. Well then, you can sleep with us.”
“Aye, really. We don’t want you to feel sad.”
I didn’t want to force her to be alone, if she didn’t want to.
As soon as I said this, Liza’s face broke into a smile and she started wagging her tail again.
I nodded, and Leo barked with approval.
Did she hate the idea so much then…? I guess she just didn’t want to be separated from us.
“…Well, that’s how it is. I’m sorry you had to go through the trouble.”
“No, not at all. I expected this to happen anyway. So, Ms. Liza will stay with you for now.”
“Yes, thank you.”
Ms. Lyra had been watching our exchange with a smile. And so she shook her head when I apologized and agreed with the decision.
“Uh…that being said, when it comes to baths…”
“That is right. Hehe. I heard from Gelda.”
Yesterday, when I was washing Leo, Liza barged in.
Considering how she was about the room, Liza might not want to bathe alone either.
Ms. Lyra laughed when I mentioned this. Apparently, Ms. Gelda had told her about it.
I had not wanted her to tell people, but I suppose she talked to Ms. Lyra about everything.
Besides, Ms. Lyra and Ms. Gelda helped me take care of Leo often.
“As for that, I could take care of Ms. Liza for you?”
“You, Ms. Lyra… Indeed. Liza, Ms. Lyra is offering to bathe you instead of me and Leo. Is that alright?”
Ms. Lyra had looked quite enthusiastic when making the suggestion too.
Well, she did like to offer her help whenever she could.
“Not with you, papa?”
“Well, you are girl, Liza. So it is best for you to go with Ms. Lyra. Don’t worry, you won’t be alone.”
“…Oh, okay. Uhh…”
“Ms. Liza. You can call me Lyra.”
I stressed the fact that she would not be alone and asked if she was alright with going with Ms. Lyra.
That’s what she was most worried about. Being alone.
And so unlike with the room, she nodded in agreement.
Then she turned to Ms. Lyra and seemed to be thinking about something.
Ms. Lyra immediately introduced herself and bowed.
Now that I thought about, Liza had never directly asked about Ms. Lyra’s name.
“Ms. Lyra? Uh…thank you.”
“You can talk to me like you do with everyone else. Now, Ms. Liza, I will do my best to help you.”
Ms. Lyra bowed, and then Liza got down from Leo.
If anything, it was probably Liza who should bow her head and ask for help, but I guess Ms. Lyra saw things differently.
She was one of those people that seemed restless when she wasn’t busy around the house…
Previously, a short while after we had come to the mansion, I had told her that we no longer needed someone to guide us around the house. And she had looked terribly disappointed.
