My Beloved Dog is the Strongest in Another World - Chapter 79
We relaxed in the drawing room
“I’m going to go and put this little one to bed.”
“Yes, my lady. And what about you, Mr. Takumi?”
“Indeed. I’m going to drop my things off in my room first. And then, can I have some tea in the drawing room? The tea you serve here is very delicious and helps me relax.”
“Very well. It will be prepared.”
So Ms. Claire was going to let the fenrir sleep in her room.
At first, she had seemed a little anxious about being with the fenrir when Leo and I were not there, but that was no longer the case, it seemed.
The fenrir had never shown any signs of hostility, and it just ran around playfully. And so Ms. Claire probably realized that there was nothing to worry about now.
Tilura followed after Ms. Claire in order to look at the fenrir.
“Leo, let’s go.”
I called Leo, who was looking sadly at Tilura leaving with the fenrir. And then I headed to my room.
I needed to hurry up and drop off my things and go to the drawing room. Sebastian was bound to have the tea ready in no time.
Ms. Lyra had been like that as well. The servants seemed capable of moving through the mansion with such a speed that I wondered if they were capable of teleporting.
The tea might be ready in the drawing room by the time I reach my door.
And so I took Leo, who kept glancing back in the direction that Tilura went, and headed for my room.
Don’t be so sulky, Leo. You’ll get plenty of attention later.
I put down my things in the room and then changed my clothes.
They were the clothes that I had left here, but the ones that I was wearing were much too dirty.
Though, Ms. Lyra and Johanna had washed our clothes in the river while we were out exploring.
However, there was no detergent in the forest, and so the clothes wouldn’t be completely cleaned. And they had gotten dirty on the journey back as well.
After I was changed, I took Leo and walked to the drawing room.
While walking down the hall, I looked at Leo and noticed that her silver fur looked dull.
I suppose that I’d have to bathe her again. Though, I wouldn’t bring it up now.
Leo was already feeling both sad and sulky over Tilura’s attention being directed elsewhere, and she would not take the news of a bath very well.
When we entered the drawing room, Ms. Gelda was waiting there with a pot and tea cup placed on the table.
“Welcome back, Mr. Takumi. Your tea is ready.”
“Thank you. It’s good to be back.”
I thanked her and sat down at the table.
Leo also approached Ms. Gelda, and greeted her.
Once I had sat down, Ms. Gelda poured me a cup of tea.
“Welcome back, good Leo. Would you like to have some milk?”
Leo nodded at Ms. Gelda’s words.
Ms. Gelda seemed to be used to Leo now.
She used to talk to Leo so fearfully, but now she was acting quite normal.
Perhaps it was because she and Ms. Lyra had ridden on Leo’s back in the garden?
Well, now that I looked carefully, she still seemed a little tense. But then again, I had a feeling she was always like that, even when not around Leo.
“Ah, this tea really is delicious.”
I took a sip while Ms. Gelda prepared the milk for Leo.
I didn’t feel like I had truly returned to this mansion until I had a cup of tea.
There was something very comforting about the taste.
“Here you go, good Leo.”
The milk must have been prepared in advance, as Ms. Gelda brought out a bowl that was the size of a large bucket, and placed it in front of Leo.
Leo looked at Ms. Gelda and barked once with gratitude, and then she dunk her face inside and drank greedily.
She had not been able to drink any milk while we were in the forest.
But Leo, be careful to not stick to anyone while you have all that milk on your face, all right?
After giving Leo her milk, Ms. Gelda stood by the door and waited.
And so Leo and I drank our tea and milk and relaxed.
Eventually, there was a knock on the door, and Ms. Claire and Tilura entered, with the fenrir by their feet.
“Mr. Takumi, thank you for accompanying me to the forest. I am grateful for your cooperation.”
“Not at all, Ms. Claire. I hope you are not too tired.”
Ms. Claire thanked me as soon as she came in.
She then sat at the table and Ms. Gelda poured her some tea.
Tilura and the fenrir went straight towards Leo.
From the looks of it, the fenrir had taken to Tilura quickly.
It seemed a little too soon, but perhaps it was because they were both children.
After all, children seemed to be capable of becoming friends in an instant.
“So it woke up.”
“Yes. It woke up just as we reached my room. Hehe!”
Ms. Claire chuckled as if she had just remembered something. What was it?
“Did something happen?”
“Not really. But it was when the fenrir woke up. It fell asleep inside of the carriage, yes? And so it was surprised to suddenly wake up in this mansion. It was quite adorable as it ran about, trying to figure out where it was.”
From the fenrir’s point of view, it had suddenly appeared in an unknown place, so it was no wonder that it felt alarmed.
But I’m sure it would get used to being here.
Ms. Claire recalled the moment with a smile as she watched Leo and Tilura play.
Yes, I could imagine how cute it would have looked.
Because the fenrir just looked like a dog…
However, it would one day grow large and become a terrifying wolf.
“Now that I think about it, Mr. Takumi. Weed Cultivation, which you demonstrated in the forest…”
“Oh? What about it?”
“Well, you were testing all sorts of things in the garden. Perhaps it’s time that you told me more about that.”
“Ah, yes. I haven’t explained it to you yet.”
So much had happened that I had forgotten.
But we had plenty of time now, with nothing important to do. So it was a good opportunity.
And so I started to think of how best to explain it to her. But then my mind suddenly went blank.
No, it wasn’t just my mind. But my vision.
Huh? What is this?
“Mr. Takumi? Are you all right?”
Everything was white. I couldn’t see anything. But I could hear Ms. Claire’s concerned voice.
“What is it, Mr. Takumi?”
I could only hear voices and sounds around me.
However, the worry in Leo’s voice sounded like this was a state of emergency.
And I could hear Tilura and the fenrir as well.
But my vision remained white and I could see nothing.
Not only that, but a blackness started to creep in from the edges, and the sounds grew more distant.
What is this? What was happening to me?
No, I had experienced this before…yes… Once, I had fainted after being forced to work for days and days without rest…
Without being able to finish the thought, everything turned black and I lost consciousness…
