I made my way to the Reese Clinic.
There were several people lined up in front of the clinic, and it looked like they were waiting for it to open.
However, there was still some time before it opened.
The only thing I noticed was the appearance of the patients.
Last time, they used to hide their faces and sneak around, but that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore.
Little by little, the surrounding is starting to change, I think.
I went around to the back door.
I knocked on the door and called out to Reese’s.
Then when Reese appears she has dark circles under her eyes and an indescribable expression on her face.
For a moment, my mind goes blank and I try to gently close the door.
But Reese stopped me.
Her eyes are obviously in trouble.
He grabbed Kaoru by the shoulders and tried to keep her from escaping.
“You’re free now? Say you’re free! I’ll die if I work another shift.” (Reese)
“Unfortunately I don’t have time. I’m going to be busy so I’ll come back later.”
I thought it would be fun to make fun of her, so I answered with a chuckle.
With tears in her eyes, she looked like a zombie in a horror movie.
“Please. I’ll pay you back later.” (Reese)
“Right. I’ll lend you a hand if you promise not to say no to one of my requests.”
She looks a little haggard, but Reese is not in the mood for talking about that right now.
There are so many patients and she can’t handle it at the moment that they want to borrow it even with the help of cats.
“You can write a letter if you want. I can write you a note if you want. Just do this.” (Reese)
“Okay. Then open the clinic. If you don’t finish quickly, we won’t be able to move on to the next place.”
Reese gives me a paper with the written promise.
I took it and put it in my item box.
Then, I head straight to the clinic.
“What about medicine?”
“I get it from Orvis Trading every morning.” (Reese)
“It feels like they’re on their trial run… well, yeah, maybe later.”
I stopped my pondering since a patient has come in while I was ruminating.
Soon, each person was treated carefully and at a surprising speed.
Reese was also working diligently.
The people in line quickly disappeared and we had some time to take a break.
“So, Reese, do me a favor.”
“That sounds ominous…” (Reese)
“Maybe it’s good? Why don’t you stop thinking negatively?”
“So, what is it?” (Reese)
I talked to Reese about giving her the right to distribute and refine the Labyrinth Fever Medicine.
As a result, Reese is going to be awarded a title.
“You’re crazy!” (Reese)
“I’m perfectly sane.”
“Idiot. You’re transferring the rights and method of refining the cure for Labyrinth Fever!” (Reese)
“Yeah, that’s right.”
“You’re taking this too lightly…… This is not something to take lightly.” (Reese)
Reese was in a pretty bad mood.
She doesn’t seem to like one-sidedly receiving benefits from me, even though I didn’t personally refine it myself.
“I don’t like it. I’m going to recreate it myself and show it to you.” (Reese)
“I don’t want to. I know exactly what you mean.”
“Then why?” (Reese)
“Well, I was thinking that all healers need to change their minds. Look at the other healers. They’re at the mercy of people like Argus and have no ambition at all. But Reese was struggling and working hard, and I want you to spread that ambition to others.”
Reese looks like she’s chewing on what I had said over and over in her mind, trying to figure out what I probably meant and what my words truly meant.
Reese remained downcast, as she is thinking.
“At any rate, if you can create a new cure, you’ll be rich. I’m sure this alone will be quite the achievement.”
“Yes, that’s true. But it doesn’t have to be me, it can be you.” (Reese)
“It’s no trouble at ……, please. I’ll probably get a letter from Eclix after two weeks.”
“A letter?” (Reese)
“A letter from Cain-san saying that Alicia’s illness has been cured. What do you think it will say? It’s going to say that I’m the one who cured her. I’m going to be someone they’re after, don’t you see?”
My words probably got through Reese.
The two Eclix healers who had come to the city were doing what they were supposed to do.
If I don’t follow them, they will kill me.
Next time, I’m not sure what will happen.
“I’m going to be in a lot of danger. I have to do everything I can.”
“So what are you going to do?” (Reese)
“I’m going to leave the city, go to a small village, and wait for things to cool down.”
“Oh, yeah…….” (Reese)
“It would be great if Reese could take the lead in organizing the town’s healers. It’s the only way to keep them safe.”
“You already thought that through? Didn’t you?” (Reese)
I smiled reassuringly trying to wordlessly say, “Well? I’m not sure about that.”
The healers in this city are easily dominated by power.
The fact that none of them would stand up to Argus is a good example.
I thought that if I could use this to change their mindset, it would be even better. Especially Reese, because there were times when she is very strong in doing just that. She was not afraid to stand up to Argus.
“I got you to write me a contract. I’m relieved.”
“Wait a minute. I don’t know how to behave like an aristocrat.” (Reese)
“I can ask Cain-san for help on your behalf. Please ask for the rest of yourself.”
“I shouldn’t have told you to I was going to write a contract…” (Reese)
“If you don’t promise, I’ll find another way, so it’s a sure thing. You have no chance.”
“You seem to be sweet on that girl Alicia.” (Reese)
“I’m not going to deny that.”
“Your reaction is too boring. I’m disappointed. I thought she was a good teasing material.” (Reese)
Reese said, sounding very disappointed.
I left the clinic for my next stop.
Unknown to me, after I left, Reese can take her time to rest since I have taken care of all the patients for the day. I would talk to Cain-san directly about how to spread the cure in the future. Reese thought that in the future she would have to go to the Orvis Trading Company.
“He’s like a storm. Everything changed when he came. But I can’t get angry because he’s a good guy.” (Reese)
As she said that far from my earshot, Reese closed the door and went into her bedroom.
