Different World Pharmacy Volume 3 Chapter 9 part 1
In 1147, New Year arrived at the residence of the de Medicis Family of Saint Flueve Empire . Falma was now 12 years old, and Lotte was 10 years old .
“Good morning Falma-sama”
“Fuwa! Good morning… What are you doing?”
When I woke up and saw Lotte’s face on the bedside, 10 cm in front of my eyes . I pulled my chin a little over the folded arm on the bed, swaying my face left and right .
“Oh, I was just looking at Falma-sama’s sleeping face . ”
When the pink eyelash flashed his eyes, nonstop blinking . Falma thought that he was being a pervert but Lotte seemed to be happy just by being in the same space as him .
When I thought that my waist was getting cramped, Blanche dived on the bed; I didn’t notice . The spoiled attitude of Blanche didn’t seem to change that easily .
“Is it because it’s cold today?”
Lotte opened Falma’s windows .
Outside was a silver world; Saint Flueve Empire was now covered with snow .
Oh, we have snow today . It’s beautiful, but I want to get rid of it .
Falma thought involuntarily, he wasn’t good with Snow .
Last winter, Falma’s beloved horse slipped on the icy road . The horses were a four-wheeled-drive . He was watching the snowy road sweetly with a careless sense of mystery . Thanks to the falling horse, he stumbled and fell asleep for a day .
“It’s snowing outside . I wish to relax at home . What will Lotte do today?”
“The scenery in the garden is wonderful . I think I’ll draw a picture”
Lotte was looking at the garden with her sparkling eyes .
Looks like I can’t erase the snow now since it will interfere with Lotte’s painting .
“I’m going to get a good night’s sleep . You can take your time . ”
Other than that, the rest will be desk work from the shop .
As New Year arrived, Falma thought it would be better if the Diversis Mundi Pharmacy took a break for a few days . So, Falma decided to spend the New Year at home after a long time .
“Falma-sama, what should you wear today?”
“I will wear casual clothes because I’m at home . ”
“Certainly . ”
Lotte took out his clothes from the closet . As she had arranged the clothes with TPO (Time, Place, and Occasion) in mind, she would be saved in picking clothes . For example, if Falma were to participate in formal occasions . However, if she were to neglect the arrangement of clothes and leave Falma on his own discretion, there would be trouble .
Lotte was now holding the clothes ruffled in fancy folds and cuffs . Since Lotte was a servant, she was interested in Falma and Blanche’s fashion . The reason was, she couldn’t cloth herself with a fancy dress .
“Oh, I see . ”
Looks like Lotte will be my servant for a while
While asked to keep the button, Falma was troubled by Lotte’s gaze . Although they were still children, it’s embarrassing to be seen by Lotte while changing clothes . Lotte herself would be uncomfortable if that’s to happen as they grow .
Even if I say I could change clothes myself, I guess a scion mustn’t change clothes by himself huh .
Falma thought that it’d be better if Lotte’s job as a caretaker were to be replaced by her mother or a male servant . There’s no change in the fact that aristocratic life was a hassle .
“Lady Blanche will have her change of clothes . ”
“Hai (yes) . ”
Falma was dressed in simple clothes, while Blanche’s dress had frills on it . Both Falma and Blanche headed towards the dining room . He suddenly took the replica of the staff ID card from the wooden box on the desk . While going down the spiral staircase, Blanche wondered at a point .
“Older brother, why do you have that all the time?”
“What’s so important about it, older brother?”
“It’s an important thing . ”
In his previous life, it’s a must to put the ID card in the chest pocket of the white coat (lab gown) . Since the ID card was also a key card to the laboratory, it became a habit for him to always carry the ID necessary when moving around the room . It’s just a replica, but that was a proof that he was anxious in the corner of his heart .
I have to go out early .
Falma thought of going to the Great Church to see the great treasure . Since it was said to be a treasure, its state might be different from the former employee ID card . The Great Church wasn’t located in Saint Flueve Empire .
The main shrine of the church was in a small city named “Holy Land (Sacred Country)” .
The Holy Land, like Vatican City, was a religious place where only the priests could live . Although it’s necessary to cross the border, it was impossible to step in front of the Holy Land .
According to the chief priest’s story, going to the Great Church wasn’t easy . Falma’s existence was yet to be known by the Great Church . If it was known that he existed, he might be put under house arrest for fact that he was the precious treasure (Staff of Medicine God) of the Church .
It was said that the chief priest who oversees the Great Church had a troublesome secret art of divination . He thought about sneaking at night and stole the great treasure when the security was very low .
The Great Church was like a dungeon . Even if you entered as a robber during night time, you couldn’t reach the location of the treasure . The chief priest said he was going to guide him . Falma’s heart ached with the thought that a chief priest would guide him to steal the great treasure .
It seems like I would be excommunicated with Chief Priest Solomon if we crossed that dangerous scenario . A country consisting of priests was about to be discovered by just walking three paces .
