My Beloved Dog is the Strongest in Another World - Chapter 96
Mr. Ekenhart seemed to like me
“Earlier, Mr. Takumi talked to you about having the Gift…”
“Ah, that Weed Cultivation thing? Having a Silver Fenrir was surprising enough, but to have the Gift as well…”
So it was about the selling contract for the herbs after all.
While I had explained to him that I had the Gift, I hadn’t really talked about how I would use it.
“Father, Mr. Takumi is able to use his gift to cultivate all kinds of herbs.”
“Oh? Such as?”
“First, he made some Ramogi, which was used to heal Tilura’s illness. And then when testing it later, he was able to make Loe.”
“Loe… Loe!? That rare and expensive Loe?”
“Yes, that is right. Mr. Takumi was able to make it very easily. I, Tilura, and Sebastian all saw him do it.”
So even Mr. Ekenhart was surprised about the Loe… Sebastian had told me that it was expensive, but still…
After that, Ms. Claire and Sebastian continued to explain to him about my Gift and the herbs I made.
“Aside from that, he’s also made many other varieties of plants.”
“Mr. Takumi is doing some research in order to find the best way to use his Gift. He’s even created plants that I have never seen before. And Lady Claire and I can confirm that they were effective.”
They were talking about the herb that I passed out in the forest.
It was known that if I used the Gift while thinking of something, I could usually create a plant that was just like what I had imagined.
Well, I might end up fainting again like I did after returning from the forest. So I needed to be careful that I don’t overuse it. And I also had to be cautious when it came to the effect.
“Hmm… I see. This Weed Cultivation is clearly a useful Gift. So, what do you want me to do, Claire and Sebastian?”
“Father, I want you sign a sales contract with Mr. Takumi.”
“Mr. Takumi has already agreed to it. I’m sure that Your Grace understands the advantages it will have for this family.”
“Indeed… Mr. Takumi, is this true? It is a great Gift, and the Liebert family will surely make a profit by selling the herbs. But I have to know that the person with the Gift is fully satisfied with the arrangement.”
While Ms. Claire and Sebastian urged Mr. Ekenhart to make the contract, he remained calm as he turned to me.
His beloved daughter and trusted butler were asking him, but he put more importance on my opinion. Perhaps he was a very sympathetic person.
And if the family businesses were going well, then it meant that Mr. Ekenhart must be talented when it comes to trade.
In my old world, I would sometimes see people persuade others forcefully, and make contracts that were only profitable for their own company. And so it was quite refreshing.
With someone like this, I had no reason to hesitate.
It wouldn’t be like before, where my life was nothing but work.
“Yes. As Ms. Claire and Sebastian have said, I would very much like to make a contract with your family.”
“I see. So it’s not because they asked you to do it?”
“Yes. Ms. Claire merely told me of the advantages. And the disadvantages as well. However, I am not one to think only of profit. Besides, if I can be any use to the people who have helped me, then I intend to do just that.”
Upon hearing this, Mr. Ekenhart was deep in thought.
He was looking at me very seriously, as if appraising me. Perhaps he was trying to determine if I really meant what I said.
And so I made a point to meet his gaze and not look away.
To be honest, it was a little intimidating, due to the fact that he still looked like a bandit.
However, I had some experience with maintaining eye contact during a presentation with a client, which came in handy here.
Well, not that I was giving a presentation now.
After we had stared at each other for some time, Mr. Ekenhart suddenly burst into laughter.
Ms. Claire and Sebastian were taken aback by the sudden outburst.
Even Leo and Sherry looked puzzled as they looked at him.
While Tilura hadn’t said anything, she was also tilting her head and seemed confused.
“Well, I can see that you are not lying. You’re all right, Mr. Takumi. In fact…I should be the one asking you.”
“Father. Does that mean…?”
“Aye. We shall sign this contract. It will be top priority. It’s not often I meet a man who won’t look away from me when being stared down.”
“…Most people are afraid of your appearance, father…”
Mr. Ekenhart… He was completely aware of the effect his appearance had…
In any case, the matter had been settled.
I would finally have a job and income in this world.
Now, I just needed to secure enough money to pay them back for the things I bought in the town.
“Sebastian will handle the contract and clauses etcetera and hand it to you later. This is a matter of great importance to our family.”
“Father, you must pay Mr. Takumi properly.”
“Of course. I am not here to exploit him. That is not the Liebert way. It would affect the trust people have in our business. And since Mr. Takumi is a man of importance, he will be paid enough to build his own house. Hahaha!”
“But I… I don’t mind an average salary?”
It was good that Mr. Ekenhart liked me, but I didn’t want to be overpaid either.
And while there were still several factors, such as being overpaid, that made me anxious, I still breathed a sigh of relief now that I would be able to make a living for myself in this world.
