My Beloved Dog is the Strongest in Another World - Chapter 86
We decided on a name for the fenrir
“So the fenrir is a girl… All right, you can go now.”
Ms. Claire put the fenrir down, but perhaps it wanted to play with her, as it jumped on the neighboring chair and barked.
“Oh, if you insist.”
Said Ms. Claire. But her expression was the definition of gentle as she petted the fenrir.
“A name… Do you have any good suggestions?”
I asked, and both Ms. Claire and Sebastian seemed to be thinking about it.
In the meantime, Ms. Claire continued to pet the fenrir, who seemed very pleased to be getting her attention.
“Yes… What about Nicomaru?”
Sebastian was the first to make a suggestion…but it was a very questionable one…
“Sebastian, I don’t know what you are thinking with that name. A girl’s name should be prettier.”
“…Yes, my lady…”
Ah, he looked crestfallen.
Up until now, he had been standing behind Ms. Claire and facing the rest of the room. But he turned around and hung his head low towards the wall.
Apparently, he had no talent for thinking of names… In spite of being a butler who could do almost everything else perfectly…
Ms. Lyra and Ms. Gelda looked like they were trying to supress giggles. I was starting to feel bad for Sebastian.
“…Nicomaru… I think it is pretty…”
He muttered to the wall… Uh… Yes, it’s sort of cute. Yes.
And so cheer up, Sebastian!
After her rejection of Sebastian’s idea, Ms. Claire paid no mind to his dreariness and exclaimed loudly.
“What name have you thought of?”
“I will call her Sherry. It means ‘darling one’!”
Sherry, huh? It’s a good, pretty name.
Unlike Sebastian, Ms. Claire had the right sensibilities for choosing names.
“Fenrir. From now on you are called Sherry.”
Ms. Claire looked the fenrir straight in the face and said her name.
The fenrir, who was now Sherry, nodded in agreement.
Just then, within Ms. Claire’s grasp, Sherry suddenly started to glow.
“It’s so bright!”
Sebastian moved close to Ms. Claire protectively.
Ms. Claire was so surprised that she let go of Sherry and just stared at her.
Leo and Tilura also raised their voices in shock.
I too had not expected Sherry to start glowing… And so I stared as well.
As Sherry unleashed a light that filled the drawing room, she let out a loud bark.
And when her voice died down, the light began to fade and then disappear entirely.
“Sherry… What was that?”
Ms. Claire asked as she looked at Sherry with a stunned expression. But Sherry just tilted her head as if she had no clue.
What was that light…
“Leo. Do you know what that was?”
When in doubt, ask the Silver Fenrir.
However, Leo also seemed to be puzzled. She did not know why Sherry had started glowing.
Well, that was fine… It wasn’t like Leo knew everything.
Oh? It looked like Sebastian had thought of something.
When it came to these kinds of things, Sebastian’s vast wealth of knowledge was very useful.
“Sebastian, do you know what happened?”
“I have heard of such a thing before. When making a monster your familiar, you give it a name. And if the monster accepts it, the contract is complete. And the monster will glow in accordance with how powerful it is.”
“A familiar contract…”
Now that I thought about it, when I first came to this world, Ms. Claire had immediately assumed that Leo was a familiar.
Also, I was astonished by the breadth of Sebastian’s knowledge.
“Sherry… Did you become my familiar?”
Sherry nodded at Ms. Claire’s words, and then jumped on her as if to express her joy.
“Ahh! Oh, Sherry. You mustn’t jump on me like that, as it is most alarming.”
Still, Ms. Claire looked quite happy as she petted Sherry. And Sherry seemed to really enjoying being held and petted by Ms. Claire.
“So, Lady Claire now has a familiar…”
“Is there a problem with that, Sebastian?”
After the explanation, Sebastian just looked at Ms. Claire and Sherry as if he could not believe what he was seeing.
Ms. Claire was the daughter of a duke.
Perhaps having a monster as a familiar was something that was frowned upon.
“No, not really.”
So there was nothing.
I’m not sure why I was even worried…
“If anything, this is quite wonderful. While she is not a Silver Fenrir, fenrirs are still proud and powerful monsters. She will be a perfect guard for you, my lady.”
“Yes, she could be like a guard.”
Like a watchdog?
Well, if she could protect Ms. Claire, that was a good thing.
However, when looking at Sherry yelping in Ms. Claire’s arms, I could not see this proud and powerful monster that Sebastian spoke of.
“Oh, but sister! I want one of these…familiars? Too!”
Said Tilura jealousy as she watched her sister holding Sherry.
“Tilura, it is very difficult to make a contract with a familiar. And so you will just have to be satisfied with playing with Sherry. Go, Sherry.”
Sherry did as instructed and scampered off towards Tilura in order to play with her.
Leo also joined them.
“That being said, a contract with a familiar… It’s all thanks to you, Mr. Takumi, that I was able to do it.”
“No, not at all. I barely did anything.”
I felt as if they were giving me credit for everything these days. But I really didn’t deserve it.
Besides, I wasn’t used to hearing words of gratitude…
