My Beloved Dog is the Strongest in Another World - Chapter 83
I explained about my Gift research
In the end, it was Sebastian who really seemed interested in this subject.
Perhaps because it was related to the Gift. Though, it wasn’t just him, as the others were also looking at me eagerly.
“It was a plant that I had never seen before. I checked the book that I borrowed later, and it wasn’t in it.”
“A plant that isn’t in the book…”
“And since I didn’t know what it was, I left it on the table in my room… But that night, Leo ate it without asking…”
At this, all eyes turned to Leo.
Leo tilted her head to the side once and then nodded as if to say, ‘ah, that’s right.’
It was a mystery plant that could have been poisonous, so you shouldn’t eat such things, Leo.
Thankfully, it had not been poisonous at all.
“Well, it was also because of Leo that I found out the plant’s effect.”
“What effect was it?”
Sebastian leaned forward as he asked this.
“In spite of it being night time, Leo became very energetic after eating the plant. She said that…it made her swell with power, as if it surpassed her limits and made her stronger. Right, Leo?”
I asked Leo and she nodded in reply.
“Swell with power… So is it like the herbs you gave us in the forest that healed our tiredness?”
“No, Lady Claire. If it makes your body stronger, then it surely does much more than heal your tiredness.”
“Sebastian is right. Though, I haven’t tested it enough to be sure, but I believe that it enhances your physical abilities.”
Since it made you stronger, Leo continued to play after that until she finally fell asleep. It had been quite a night…
She was so restless and wanted to run around, and I had to stop her over and over again.
Leo could not run around inside of the mansion, as she was so large and was bound to break things.
“Physical ability…it must be quite amazing then.”
“Yes, I do think that it could be very useful. I tested it myself and I was able to jump several times higher than I usually can. And things that normally feel heavy were light when I picked them up.”
“So that’s why you were hopping and rolling around, Mr. Takumi.”
Ms. Lyra had been watching me as I worked in the garden.
Now that I thought of it, I must have looked quite a fool, jumping around like that at my age.
“However, I haven’t tested it as much as I’d like, so there are still things that I don’t know.”
“Like what? It seems that you know quite enough already.”
“Well, like just how much it enhances your physical ability. The effect may vary from person to person. Perhaps it is more effective on certain types of people.”
For instance, if a person’s physical ability was ‘10’ and they ate the herb.
And then their physical ability became 20. Was this because their ability was doubled, or because the herb gives you +10?
If it was +10, it would be 30 if someone with physical ability 20 ate it, but if it was doubling the number, then it would be 40.
This was a big difference.
Of course, if this was true, it would likely be much more complex.
Besides, I doubted a person’s physical ability could be measured and turned into numbers.
“Uh, I’m getting sidetracked here… But after making that herb, I realized one of the possibilities of Weed Cultivation.”
“And what possibility is that?”
Now Claire was leaning forward as she asked me this.
And while I had no idea if she truly understood, even Tilura looked quite excited as she listened to us speak.
They really enjoyed listening to this, huh?
Ms. Claire had already proved to be someone that was full of curiosity. Perhaps it had just rubbed off onto everyone close to her?
“When cultivating the plants, at first, I was thinking about not just the effect, but the actual appearance. However, the herb I have been talking about was something that I didn’t know about. In other words, I only need a vague idea of what kind of plant I want, and I can cultivate it.”
“What do you mean?”
“I don’t have to imagine what it looks like. It doesn’t even have to exist. I just need to imagine the desired effect and use Weed Cultivation. Well, it was really an accident. And so while it wasn’t exactly what I had been thinking about, something similar was created.”
“I see… So that’s what happened… This Weed Cultivation must be an incredible ability.”
Sebastian was the only one who was nodding understandingly.
The others appeared to be pondering what I said with serious expressions.
But it was really quite simple.
“It would be nice to have this kind of plant. Just think that, and as long as it can be categorized as a weed, then you can make it. It is that kind of ability.”
“If I remember correctly, you cannot make vegetables?”
“Yes, I cannot. However, sometimes the line between vegetable and weed can be blurry. I think there may be some loopholes if I think about it. It was because of this, that before our journey, I asked Ms. Claire if I can test different things in the back garden.”
“So that is what you were doing. I was very curious to know about it.”
Yes, that had been clear.
She was a very curious person, and I had made it sound more mysterious than was necessary.
Well, I still wasn’t even sure what I thought at the time, so I didn’t feel like talking about it.
“Hahaha. I’m terribly sorry about that. I just wanted to tell you once there were some results. It was just a thought that had sprouted in my mind, and I wouldn’t have been able to explain it properly yet.”
“No… But it did cross my mind at the time, that you were being mean to me. But I know better now.”
Mean… Do I look like that kind of person?
I had always strived to be gentlemanly around women….
As for whether I was succeeding… Well, I’d rather not think about it.
