My Beloved Dog is the Strongest in Another World - Chapter 93
I talked about everything that had happened
Now that I think about it… When Mr. Ekenhart had said that there was a lot to talk about, Ms. Claire, Tilura, and Sebastian’s faces had tensed up a little…
I suppose it was because they thought he was talking about the marriage proposals?
“Well then, let’s go, father.”
“Mmm. Mr. Takumi…and good Leo. Please tell me about what happened in the drawing room.”
But Ms. Claire’s face switched to a smile in an instant, and she led her father to the drawing room. Mr. Ekenhart then told me and Leo to follow.
I could tell by the way that he addressed Leo that he was still nervous around her.
We both answered and then followed them to the drawing room.
In the meantime, the servants also began to leave in order to get back to their work.
Good work, all of you. I hope that next time, I will be able to watch you practice your greeting.
They were all in perfect sync, and so I thought it must be interesting to see if they were so perfect when practicing.
Well, if they even did practice.
We then entered the drawing room and sat down at the table.
Mr. Ekenhart sat in the center, while Ms. Claire and Tilura sat on either side. Sebastian stood right behind him.
Ms. Claire was holding Sherry.
I sat so that I would be facing everyone, and then Leo sat to the side, where a few chairs had been removed to make space for her.
Ms. Lyra and Ms. Gelda were waiting by the wall, so that they would be ready to pour some more tea when needed.
…I suppose I was placed here as my and Leo’s story was seen as the most important. But it made me a little nervous to be in this position…
Mr. Ekenhart was looking at me sternly and head on, and while Ms. Claire and Tilura were smiling, they seemed a little stiff, as if ready for a serious discussion.
It was starting to feel like an uncomfortable job interview.
“Now, since we’re all here and settled, let’s hear what Mr. Takumi has to say. Why is there a Silver Fenrir with you? They are monsters that do not obey humans.”
And so for a while after that, I told him everything that I had already told Ms. Claire and the others.
How I had come from what I thought was another world, and that it was where I had first found Leo. How I had raised her. How I had suddenly woken up in the forest, and that Leo had turned into a Silver Fenrir. And how we wandered through the forest, and then encountered Ms. Claire as she was being attacked by an orc.
Mr. Ekenhart looked very distressed when I told him about the attack, but when I explained how Leo had saved her, his eyes welled up with tears and he thanked her.
He clearly cared about Ms. Claire a lot.
Though, the sight of this unkempt, bandit-like man crying had quite the impact…
And then I talked about my Gift, about exploring the forest with Ms. Claire, and about meeting Sherry. Sebastian also added to the story by telling him about how I had likely fainted due to using the Gift too much. And like that, I finished telling him everything.
Mr. Ekenhart had looked very agitated when I talked about Ms. Claire’s search for the fenrir, but he quickly calmed down, thanks to Ms. Claire and Sebastian’s efforts.
Yes, a father would be worried about his beloved daughter going deep into a dangerous forest.
“…I see… I understand your position now, Mr. Takumi. Still, whether it’s going into the forest alone to help Tilura, or taking the fenrir with you, so that it’s not attacked by monsters, you really are a sweet child, Claire… And Tilura, I’m so glad that you are better…”
After everything I said…after all of Ms. Claire, Tilura, and Sebastian’s supplementary information, and Leo’s nodding and barking, that was the first thing Mr. Ekenhart said…
I understand that he doted on his daughters, but… Was that really the right reaction for the master of the house? I was starting to worry about the Liebert family.
Well, perhaps it was a good thing for a father to think about his daughters more than anything.
“As Leo is here as proof, I must believe everything that you’ve said, Mr. Takumi. After all, our family has strong ties with the Silver Fenrir.”
Ms. Claire had told me all about that.
How the founder had befriended a Silver Fenrir.
And so Mr. Ekenhart believed that I came from another world and that I had the Gift.
It was because Leo was here with me.
Obviously, I could easily prove that I had the Gift, but there was no way to prove that I was from another world…
I suppose I could make a show of what knowledge I had, but even that wasn’t evidence.
“Now tell me…Mr. Takumi… Can you be sure…that your Leo will not hurt anyone?”
“Yes, it should be fine. Leo is very fond of people, and will not bite without good reason. Isn’t that right, Leo?”
I said with a smile to the still suspicious duke. And then I asked Leo for confirmation.
Leo barked in agreement.
“Father. Leo has been very good to us. Don’t worry, she will not harm anyone.”
“Leo is so cute. She lets me ride on her when she runs.”
Ms. Claire and Tilura tried to persuade him as well.
“Tilura… So you rode on a Silver Fenrir…? And you were not hurt?”
“Yes. Leo is so gentle. She ran carefully so that I wouldn’t fall off!”
So Tilura had noticed that Leo had adjusted her speed while running.
Again, Leo nodded her head in agreement.
“I came here because I haven’t seen you two in a while… And now there is a Silver Fenrir here, and Claire has a fenrir familiar…”
Mr. Ekenhart muttered in a troubled voice. Well, I could understand how he felt. Even if I was the one who was mostly responsible for all of it.
