Saving 80,000 Gold in an Another World for Retirement - Chapter 278
278 Sweeping 1
[I’ll leave it to you then.] Mitsuha
[…Ah, I understand.] McCoy
This is the courtyard of Otsuki General Hospital.
McCoy-san, whom I had called in advance, came out of the main building with not a second to waste, and just arrived here at our meeting place.
In McCoy-san’s hand, there is a bag of medicine.
Apparently, according to the letter that Rephilia received, said that Larushia’s injuries were bruises and broken bones.
But fractures are hard to deal with if the bones are misaligned or attached in a strange way. Also, broken bones can damage nerves and blood vessels.
So I decided to see McCoy-san just in case.
It would have taken a good number of days for the letter to arrive, and it would have taken a few days for Larushia to be in a condition to write it, so it would have already been quite a while since she was injured.
It may be too late now, but I want to do everything I can to help.
Everyone who is a friend and a comrade of mine, I’ll come and visit…….
[How are you feeling, Larushia-san?] Mitsuha
[Vi, Viscount Yamano!!] Larushia
When I visited Larushia Trading with McCoy-san, Larushia was in her room giving instructions to her employees one by one.
Her right cheek and the area around her right eye were swollen and bruised.
It’s been a few days, so it’s probably gotten a lot better, but the fact that it’s still here means that it must have been pretty bad at first.
…And her left arm hung in a cloth.
Larushia flew in front of me…….
[I’m so sorry! I’m sorry! I’m sorry that your precious products were destroyed and the valuable employees got hurt…….
You trusted me to play a major role, and yet, I have failed to do so. After this matter is settled, please accept my apologies with this life of mine……] Larushia
This girl was so damn serious…
The employees, who apparently did not know my face, were surprised to learn that I was Viscount Yamano, the lifeblood of the Larushia Trading.
Then let’s reassure Larushia and her employees and let them know that Larushia Trading is safe and sound……
[There’s no need for that. Any items lost before the sale will be replenished immediately. We will turn around the deliveries that were scheduled to be made to other countries, so please make sure that those who have reservations will receive them on time.
No additional payment is required, just the first item. Any losses prior to the sale will be borne by the Viscount Yamano family.
Also, it’s been quite a while, but I’ve brought a skilled doctor from my country. Could you please gather the injured people?
I told Larushia with a sly smile.
[The Yamano family’s creed is <Heaven’s justice, bad cause, bad effect>. We must repay those who have wronged us in certain ways. Thoroughly.
Now, I will have you examined first, Larushia, and then I will take my time to talk to you. Slowly and in detail……] Mitsuha
Are? Why is Larushia pulling back so hard?
And even McCoy-san…….
After that, I had the employees leave the room and had McCoy-san examine Larushia.
Iya, it’s okay since McCoy-san is a doctor, but I can’t let her bare her shoulders in front of her male employees.
I asked the employee to gather the other injured people.
Larushia’s examination revealed that the fracture in her left arm had healed properly and there was no problem with it.
The swelling and bruising on her face would heal nicely, so we were relieved.
If a scar was left on the face of a pretty woman, it’ll be an unforgivable heinous crime.
Ah. Iya, of course, I don’t mean that you can hurt the face of a woman who isn’t pretty, you know.
And no matter how well it heals, there is no need to consider the condoning of those nefarious people who hurt a woman and caused her pain. The fact that it heals nicely is just a consequence, and it’s nothing to do about forgetting the fact that a woman was hurt.
……And this time, one of the guards died.
Perhaps he had a strong sense of justice and was loyal to his duties.
Merchants fight with money and business acumen.
If you bring violence and unlawful criminal acts into it…… It’ll then becomes war.
However, international law and the Hague Convention on Land Warfare do not apply to this bloody war of annihilation.
……Behold the wrath of the Yamano clan!!
Larushia looks a little uncomfortable as McCoy-san puts a painkiller/anti-inflammatory and tape poultice on her face.
……McCoy-san is the head of the department of internal medicine. He’s not a surgeon……
He also gave her some other oral painkillers and I explained to her how to use them.
Then, I asked McCoy-san to check the condition and treatment of the other employees in another room while I interviewed Larushia.
Someone is obviously suspicious, but there is no proof.
The government officials didn’t seem to be investigating the matter properly, nor did they intend to.
Umu, umu, it’s a common pattern.
[I’m sorry, I can’t help you find evidence……
And if there’s any evidence or witnesses, they will probably be destroyed or silenced by now……] Larushia
As if in frustration, the shadow on the floor below the face of Larushia began to grow darker.
…They made her cry…
They’ve made one of my precious friends cry……
Are? I was trying to keep a smile on my face so as not to worry her, but then, I may have scared her instead.
Well, I’ve been told by the original Mitchan. A long time ago, when I was trying to hold back my overflowing anger and force myself to smile…….
You have «The Great Villain’s Laughing Face!!!» she said.
The interview with Larushia was over, and the examination of the other injured people by McCoy-san was also over.
Apparently, no one was likely to suffer any lasting effects. I was relieved.
It seems that even in this world, there is such a thing as restorative techniques.
Afterwards, I had all the employees and security guards who were present when the attack happened gathered in a room.
And I gave them an instruction.
I thanked them for their hard work and told them that if this happened again, I would never force them to resist and that they should adhere to the policy of putting human life first, avoiding injury second, and not mind about the loss of money or products.
This makes the deceased sound like an idiot, but the man who died, who was over 50 years old, was assaulted relentlessly by one of the perpetrators because he defended a young woman who was about to be violently attacked.
……So, he wasn’t trying to protect the product, but rather, he died trying to protect the woman.
After the instruction, consolation gifts were distributed to all.
Ruby, emerald, and sapphire pendants were bought from the earth, about 10,000 yen each.
Of course, they are not natural, but synthetic gems.
Even though they’re synthetic, they have the same composition as natural gems and are <genuine>. So they’re not fake.
……Yeah, I was thinking one gold coin at a time at first, but it was cheaper this way.
The synthetic gems themselves are cheap, but the washers and chains make them much more expensive.
Still, it’s just as priceless as a natural gem.
And here, this has the same value as a natural gem.
I told them to feel free to sell them for cash, but they all shook their heads and said they would keep them as family heirlooms.
Iya~, those are cheap items, about 10,000 yen each, but well…… okay.
When you think about it, no matter how many people are from other countries, being presented with a jewel by the head of a noble family is probably an honor or a big deal for a commoner……
Cultured pearl pendants…… Not even a necklace, just a single pearl, could probably be around 10,000 to 20,000 yen.
But pearls are organic, so they deteriorate after a long time. If you are not taking good care of your pearls, they will lose their shine and get discolored in just a few years, and the metal fittings will rust. I decided to forgo pearls in favor of synthetic gems.
Since they’re not going to sell it and keep it forever, I’m glad I went with this one.
Ah, the one I gave to Iris-sama doesn’t stay good that long either. I didn’t know at what point in time the pearls would deteriorate……
Well, she’ll be able to wear it to Beatrice-chan’s wedding, so let’s give her a break.
Also, I have to give gifts not only to those who are injured but the rest of the people present during the attack, or else it would be bad if they think I’m only rewarding those who resisted the bandits.
……And, of course…… For the one who is not here, or rather, <For the one who is not here with us anylonger>.
This is the end of the Mitsuha Combo.
I’ll be busy for a while, so we’re going back to the regular schedule. ω
Kuma = Sat & Sun
Mitsuha = once a week (any day of the week)
