My Beloved Dog is the Strongest in Another World - Chapter 37
Today’s Breakfast Looked Delicious As Well
When I entered the dining hall, I saw that Ms. Claire and Tilura were sitting and waiting in the same place as last night.
“Good morning, Mr. Takumi.”
“Ms. Claire. Good morning. Good morning, Sebastian.”
“Good morning, Mr. Takumi. Lady Claire appears to be in very high spirits today.”
“Is that so?”
“Oh, stop that, Sebastian. Mr. Takumi, it’s nothing at all. I am always like this.”
Sebastian chuckled at Ms. Claire and then retreated to the back.
Hmm… Ms. Claire didn’t seem all that different from yesterday… Hmm. But I suppose she did look to be in a good mood… I wonder why…
As I thought this, my eyes wandered to Ms. Claire’s head.
She was wearing the hair ornament that I had given her.
Perhaps that was why she was in a good mood?
I had bought it on a whim(of course, I had not forgotten that I borrowed money from Sebastian), but both Ms. Claire and Tilura wore them and were very happy. I was glad to see it.
“Now, let us eat.”
For breakfast, we had the same soup and salad as yesterday, as well as two types of bread.
One was two slices of bread with some ham and melted cheese in between.
The other had a fried egg on top.
Uh, I think these were called croque monsieur and croque madame?
But I thought that they were relatively recent dishes, and wouldn’t have existed in medieval times.
Well, this was another world where they had magic and Gifts, so while their culture was at a similar level, it didn’t mean that everything was like the medieval era.
“The food looks as delicious as yesterday.”
“Yes. I think that Helena was very happy about the compliment yesterday, and woke up extra early this morning.”
“Is that so?”
“She said that it was difficult to get the cheese just right. This bread…is called croque, I believe.”
So Helena had been working hard from early in the morning.
I could tell just by looking at the bread that it was going to taste delicious.
And when I glanced over to Ms. Claire and Tilura’s plates, I saw that their bread wasn’t as thick as mine.
It looked like part of the bread had been carved out in order to put the toppings on.
I suppose she adjusted everyone’s dish to match their preferences. She really had everything thought out.
When I looked over to Leo, I saw that she had an especially large croque. And it was topped with thinly sliced sausages.
…Thank you for going through the trouble, Ms. Helena.
Leo looked like she could not wait any longer, and she bit into the croque first.
The croque monsieur, which was the one without egg, had a nice crunch to it, and it was overflowing with cheese.
The thick sauce spread delightfully through my mouth.
Humans really did become happy when they ate delicious food.
“It’s good isn’t it? Leo?”
Tilura said with a smile. And Leo wagged her tail as she replied.
Ms. Claire also seemed to be enjoying her food…yes, great food made everyone happy.
Even though it was a lot of food for breakfast, I was able to eat all of it.
Then the maids poured us some tea and we rested.
“That tickles, Leo!”
Leo and Tilura were playing next to the chair that I was sitting on.
Leo. You really shouldn’t lick Tilura’s face so soon after you drink your milk.
“Hehehe. Tilura’s completely attached now.”
“Yes. Leo has always liked playing with children, so she seems very happy to be with Tilura.”
Ms. Claire and I watched them and chuckled.
Ah, that’s right.
I recalled what I had been thinking about before going to sleep.
“By the way, Ms. Claire.”
“Yes, what is it?”
“Do you think that I could use the back garden for a short while?”
“The back garden? Are you going to play there with Leo?”
“No, it’s just that now that I know that I have a Gift, I would like to test some things out.”
“Testing… Can I ask you what kind of tests?”
Ms. Claire seemed very curious about what I was going to do.
“Yes. Since I have ‘Weed Cultivation,’ I want to find out what kinds of plants I can cultivate. I just hope that there is something useful among them.”
“I see. Then of course, I don’t mind. That garden hasn’t been used for a long time until Tilura and Leo played in it yesterday.”
“Thank you. …Also, Sebastian.”
Now that I had Ms. Claire’s permission, I turned to Sebastian.
“Yes, how can I be of service?”
“Um…would you happen to have samples or books about medicinal plants that are detailed and with pictures?”
“Medicinal plants… Indeed… We have no samples, but we do have educational books stored. As there is no pharmacist here now, we keep them in case we require that knowledge.”
“That’s how I found out that Ramogi would be effective for Tilura’s illness.”
“I see. Can I see this book? I want to use it for reference when trying Weed Cultivation.”
So saying, Sebastian called Gelda and had her fetch the book about medicinal plants.
