Ellen seemed to be smiling at Falma who was stuck in the heat of the Estherk villagers’ celebrations . Cedric gently smiled, and Lotte was still unable to understand what was going on .
“Please come to Estherk village . I made a golden statue for you and I hope you’ll like it”
Falma gave the villagers a futile smile . He could not simply say, ‘I have seen it already . ’
“Hey, people of Estherk village, what is this Medicine God business? Why do you call that shopkeeper a Medicine God? Is that his name?”
The local workers who did not know the circumstances naturally asked as they could not follow the conversation .
“Well, listen, actually he is!”
“He is over there!”
Through the members of Estherk village, the identity of Falma was instantaneously known .
“That’s how I was saved from the Black Death . ”
“Please take a look at these goods!”
People of Estherk village showed the goods to Falma . The statue had become a miniature toy . Everyone had one .
“What is that!?”
Then one villager presented the charm to Falma .
“Medicine God Charm, this was created so then everyone can have one . ”
The charm was a smaller version of the statue of the god . They attached them to bags, and made necklaces our of them . Falma sighed . It seemed that they are going to mass produce this toy after all .
“Please do not sell them!”
The Estherk village seemed to have begun to make a village dedicated to a legendary god .
“You are too loud! Line up in numerical order!”
As things were starting to get ridiculous, Adam made them line up as before and restarted .
“I am just a manager . The claim that I am a medicine god is a complete misunderstanding, so please do not misunderstand”
As Falma thought it would be troublesome, thus he denied it for the first time .
The villagers of Estherk village thus did not agree . The villagers did not believe him since his accomplishment doesn’t reflect what he said .
Falma gave a speech and stated what the corporate philosophy was and what the long-term goals were . Falma’s speech was full of enthusiasm .
“So, Diversis Mundi Pharmacy will protect the lives of people around the world through drug discovery . ”
Ellen rubbed her eyes . The speech was getting boring . Many people were beginning to topple over .
Falma saw it and looked into the eyes of workers who had begun to snooze .
“How are you guys!”
He shouted out loudly .
The workers shouted back in vigorous voices .
“Well, who is not healthy?”
The same voices as before echoed back .
“I am healthy!”
Falma pressed his hand against his chest .
“Then I will ask you, if you think you are healthy, please raise your hand”
Everyone vigorously raised their hands .
“Okay! I understand!”
Falma looked at all the workers . Every worker had a name tag with their staff number and name written on it . Falma gazed at them gently and began to write down numbers on a large form of paper on the bulletin board on the platform with great anger .
“What are those numbers for?”
“A game . ”
“You may be about to start an incredible climb in position . ”
“Are they candidates for a supervisor? Is it a pay raise?”
Workers scratch their heads and spread optimistic speculations . When Falma finished writing the numbers, he stood with the bulletin board at his back .
“Ok, could people with matching numbers please step over there . ”
The workers compared their employee number and the numbers on the board .
“Hit, it matched!”
Those whose numbers matched the board were separated from the crowd .
Falma was inwardly confident in the results, and the announcement was definitely not for a promotion .
“The people who have stepped forward are ones with a healthy body . ”
The workers were rather gloomy . Only about 30% of workers had come forward .
What this told Falma was that the majority of workers were not healthy . All of the workers had a small health problem . The problems ranged from caries to lifestyle diseases .
The workers who did not make it turned pale .
“Such a farce! I am healthy! There is nothing wrong with anything!”
Falma looked calmly over at the man who protested over the result .
“You have Hepatitis; your liver has an inflammation . ”
