My Beloved Dog is the Strongest in Another World - Chapter 63
Ms. Claire told me the reason that she wanted to come to the forest
“And even as I grew older, I was mirroring the portraits that depicted the growth of the first lord.”
“So you were the spitting image of her…?”
“Yes. And so the servants of the Liebert household had great expectations as I was raised. I was the first founder reborn. Someone who would surely bring great prosperity to the house…”
“What…about the others…such as your father?”
“…Oh, my father didn’t believe that just because we looked alike that we were the same person. In fact, he would often tell me that I must not believe the stories and try to copy what she did. He said that I must think and live in my own way.”
“…He sounds like a good father.”
“Yes… Both Tilura and I were doted on greatly by him. …That is, of course, outside of the times he would speak of marriage…that is…”
“Hahaha… But perhaps it is because he has some great plan?”
“If he does, I had no time to consider it when I was being crushed by the sheer numbers of suitors he pushed onto me!”
Apparently, her father had made her meet many suitors.
Obviously, I had no idea what it was like to be a father who wanted his daughter to get married.
I didn’t even have any children.
“…But I digress… It was because of my father’s words that I was able to live without having to think about these stories about being a reborn ancestor. However…”
“For some reason, hearing people talk about the legends and stories of Silver Fenrirs makes my heart leap in my chest with excitement.”
My eyes nearly traveled down to Ms. Claire’s ample chest, but the power of will stopped them.
I would not want to be rude..
“And I feel like that when I see Leo. Something just wells up inside of me when it comes to Silver Fenrirs.”
“I don’t know the reason for this. And felt that the only way to find out was to come to this forest where my ancestor first met a Silver Fenrir.”
“However… There is no guarantee that there will be another Silver Fenrir, is there? Besides, you’ve already met Leo?”
“If I cannot find one after searching the forest, then that cannot be helped. I will give up when that time comes. As for Leo, I cannot explain it. But while I do feel an excitement, it is not as strong as when I hear about other Silver Fenrirs.”
“So you are searching for a Silver Fenrir who is not Leo… Is that right?”
“I think that is what it is. However, in any case, it is not an impulse that I cannot control. And so I intend that if we do not find any hints or clues to finding a Silver Fenrir tomorrow, then I will abandon this endeavor.”
“Will you really give up?”
“Yes. Just coming here has put not only you, but Sebastian and Lyra…and others at risk.”
“What lies at the end of this fascination with Silver Fenrirs… I think about it often. And so for me, this expedition is not only a search to see if they are really in this forest, but also a hope that if they are not, that I can then move on and think of other things.”
“…I can…hardly say such things to Sebastian and the others.”
“But why is that? Surely they would understand if you explained it to them?”
“…As I said earlier…it was the servants who started and spread the rumors about me being the first Liebert. Now, if Sebastian were to know that such a rumor has become a burden to me, he may feel responsible.”
“Ah…that is true.”
While it wasn’t the sole reason, the rumor had perhaps been an impetus that made Ms. Claire curious of Silver Fenrirs.
What would Sebastian do if he knew… I think he would feel responsible… I was not sure what his exact age was, but he did look like someone who had been around for a long time.
And seeing as how concerned he was for Ms. Claire, and how she trusted him, he was likely a butler at the Liebert house since she was born.
In other words, he was among the servants who began the rumor.
“I’m sorry, Mr. Takumi. To get all wrapped up in someone else’s sentiments… I must look rather foolish from the outside, making so much over so little…”
“No, not at all. Besides, I’m glad that I was able to find out what was bothering you.”
“You are very kind, Mr. Takumi… Ah…”
“What is it?”
“Well…It’s… Everything I told you now. Could you keep it a secret from Sebastian and the others?”
“Hahaha. Very well. I swear that what we heard here shall not leave our lips. Isn’t that right, Leo?”
“Thank you. Mr. Takumi and Leo.”
There was no tension left in the air now, and for a time, I continued to sit there with Ms. Claire and Leo peacefully.
Ms. Claire even spoke a little more about her reasons for being interested in Silver Fenrirs and her ancestor.
Well, there were other questions I had as well, but I thought that I would ask her another time…
I felt quite satisfied already, seeing Ms. Claire’s blushing and bashful expressions.
After some time had passed, when it was nearly time to trade places, I heard a voice coming from the direction of the mens tent.
“Ah, Mr. Takumi. Lady Claire. Thank you for taking the first watch. You seem to have been enjoying yourself?”
It was Phillip the guard who would take the next watch.
For some reason, Phillip looked like he was trying to hold back a smile as he walked towards us.
And had he always been this talkative?
He had seemed so much more formal and orderly during the day…
“I see that you’re back to your old self now that Sebastian isn’t around, Phillip.”
“Oh… How rude of me. Well, seeing as that old watcher of watchers isn’t here, I thought I might as well take it easy.”
“…So, this is how Mr. Phillip is usually like.”
He certainly had a casual way of talking.
Of course, I did find it a lot more approachable than the formal way of talking… That was good, right?
