My Beloved Dog is the Strongest in Another World - Chapter 81
I tried to think of the reason that I fainted
“Immediately after that, my vision went completely white, and I was unable to do anything. And then my consciousness slowly faded away. Before I knew it, I was sleeping in my bed.”
“I understand. Thank you for telling us.”
“No, it was good that I went over it and organized my thoughts.”
Yes, it had sent a chill through my body at first, but I was fine when I started to talk about it calmly.
I wouldn’t want to experience it again, but thinking about it wasn’t so bad.
“However, what could have caused it? I did not think that I was that tired.”
We had explored a forest and slept in tents. And so there was a little fatigue from that.
However, the plants I made with Weed Cultivation were supposed to have erased nearly all of it.
Could it be psychological fatigue…? And yet, it had closely resembled the time that I fainted from over working.
When it happened before, I had almost no time to rest, and felt lucky if I could get two or three hours of sleep.
The only reason I returned home at all was in order to feed Leo, and then I had to go straight back to work. It seemed so ridiculous now that I thought back on it.
And then finally, when I was able to go home again, my vision turned white and I collapsed on the spot.
Even I knew that this was bad, and I had called the company and told them that I was ill, and then I went to the hospital.
Well, I still had to go to work the day after, and was scolded by my boss…
But never mind that. I had to figure out why I had fainted this time.
In spite of being in the forest for so long, I should not have been that tired.
I scanned the room. Aside from Tilura, who was puzzled, the others all looked a little grim.
Even Leo seemed to be deep in thought… She was so expressive these days…
Ah, the fenrir was also clueless.
It had the same expression as Tilura as it tilted its head to the side.
It was a pup, after all.
“Mr. Takumi, uh… About how you fainted…”
Sebastian had a severe look as he began to talk. Did he know the reason?
“This is merely speculation, and I have no evidence. But it is possible that…”
So Sebastian had a theory.
As I had none, I was very curious to hear what he would say.
Since this was serious, I straightened my back a little and faced him directly.
“It is possible that it’s an effect of your Gift.”
“My Gift? But I’ve used it plenty of times before, and nothing like this has ever happened?”
Besides, I hadn’t even been using it when I fainted.
I did use it in the forest, but that was a day earlier.
If the Gift was the reason, shouldn’t I have fainted when I used it?
“As I said, I cannot firm it, but…I read something in a book about Gifts. ‘…Some may faint after overuse of the Gift. And so one must be cautious when using it. However, there are also reports of people using their Gift continuously without ever fainting. Does it depend on the ability, or the user? The answer is still unknown to us…’”
“So others have fainted after using the Gift then.”
Fainting from overuse, huh?
To cause such a thing… What was this Gift anyway…?
“It is known that using the Gift does not consume magic energy. So while you might faint from using too much magic, this is unrelated… The power to use the Gift is inside of you, Mr. Takumi. And perhaps that power dried up when you fainted.”
“The power to use the Gift… There is such a thing?”
“It has not been confirmed. As I said before, there are not many people who can use it. And so research on the matter is not easy.”
Hmm… If I were to make comparisons to games that I played in my old world, physical energy was HP, magic was MP, and this other special power was…maybe SP?
…Or should I call it GP for Gift Point?
It sounded like points you would get for sending someone a present…
“In the forest, Mr. Takumi, you used Weed Cultivation. I think that is the reason. Of course, it’s only my guess.”
“…But why did I only faint after returning from the forest? It’s been a whole day since I last used Weed Cultivation. Shouldn’t I have fainted back at the campsite?”
I had thought about this before, but the Gift was the cause, then surely it should have happened in the place where I used it?
“We thought the same thing at first. Surely it cannot be related to the Gift then. However, once I grew suspicious, I began to search through documents about the Gift, and found something very interesting.”
“What did it say?”
It seemed like Sebastian had been doing a lot of searching while I was asleep.
While I still wasn’t sure if it was the actual reason, I felt a little bad that they had worked so hard on my behalf.
“As it was an old document, it had to be translated, but… When using the Gift, the duration time changes depending on the ability. The longer the duration is, the heavier the burden on the user. And if it’s short, then there is less of a burden.”
“Your ability is Weed Cultivation, Mr. Takumi. And so when cultivating weeds, you use the ability and weeds…well, herbs…the moment that they have been cultivated, then you finish using the ability.”
“…Yes. If cultivating them is the goal, then I wouldn’t have to use the ability after that.”
When using Weed Cultivation, I put my hands on the ground.
And then plants grow immediately. After a few seconds, they finish growing and my work is complete.
So in terms of duration, it’s just a few seconds between the start and finish.
In the end, I still don’t understand why I would faint here instead of the forest…
“But with that account and your own theory, Sebastian, isn’t it even more odd that I would faint here?”
“Mr. Takumi, you created medicinal herbs to heal the fenrir, yes?”
“Huh? Yes. There was nothing else that could be done, and so I tried making something, even though I wasn’t sure if it would work.”
“I think that is the reason.”
That was the reason? But why?
