Different World Pharmacy Volume 3 Chapter 9 part 3
Palle’s image to the siblings was a Spartan older brother . Falma never neglected to practice his Divine Arts (God Skill) so as to keep his abilities in check . Having a mock battle with his elder brother every morning was considerably a time-consuming act .
Blanche, who was listening to it, broke quickly between Falma and Palle .
“Well, elder brother, could you let me do the honor first?”
Palle made a strange face .
What are you doing Blanche?
Prior to Palle’s return, Falma asked Blanche not to tell their brother about his status in Imperial Capital .
I am very busy, so I can’t let elder brother mess up my schedule .
Palle wavered to Blanche’s angelic smile .
“Looks like we can’t help it, then I’ll train you first . You know the drills so don’t cry . ”
“If possible, I want you to do it nicely brother!”
Palle stroked Blanche’s head who pleaded with moistening eyes . For the moment, Falma’s own morning special training seems to be avoidable .
I will pick up your bones; do your best, Blanche .
Falma thanked Blanche and prayed for her safety . On the afternoon of the heavy snowfall, Falma decided to attend his brother; ended up hanging out with his brother for 3 hours in the snow .
Few days later; Palle took Falma, Blanche, and Lotte to play in the playground of the Imperial Capital . Aside from Palle’s character of being arrogant and hot-blooded; he’s a caring older brother . When Palle heard that the Empress had a public bath in the imperial palace, he’s pleased to take a bath and was overwhelmed with it . They also played snowball fights, sledding games, and climbing the winter mountain .
After playing, Palle went back to the university to prepare for the graduation procedure .
“Haha, you don’t have to come home for a while, elder brother . ”
To hide through Palle’s eyes, Falma started the New Year’s work ceremony of the Diversis Mundi Pharmacy and opened the business . The usual regulars rush to the front of the gate before opening .
“Happy New Year Falma”
Ellen brought many souvenir gifts . Falma had his chin on the counter of the pharmacy . Lotte and Blanche seem like they wanted to doze .
“What’s wrong with you guys? It’s New Year . ”
“Played too much”
“It’s unusual for you guys to play too much, why?”
“Eleonore-sama, I smell something delicious!”
The delicious scent moved Lotte’s corpse like body .
“Oh, you smell that? Lotte-chan, I’ve been enjoying food from my father’s domain . ”
Ellen had been to her father’s territory ‘Count Zeus’ during the holidays . Unusual cheese and sweets were distributed to Falma, Lotte, and Cedric as well as to the pharmacy staffs . Ellen’s father’s territory was a mountainous area like Switzerland and the people made their living by pasturing and sightseeing .
“It’s delicious! A rich and pungent odor is coming back . ”
Lotte could not stand the smell but still chewed her cheese .
“Ah, I will brush my teeth . ”
Falma ate the cheese before opening . He’s worried about the smell at the time of business hours, so they brushed their teeth together . It seemed etiquette habits had been embedded to his body .
“Oh, so he came back, did he graduate from Nova Root?”
Ellen heard Palle’s name and made a complexed face . They were childhood friends as well as longtime rivals . It seemed Ellen didn’t want to call Palle as a lord in the future . They hadn’t seen each other in the last few years .
“Yeah, he’ll be graduating soon as a top student . Also, he passed the examination for a first-rate pharmacist at the same time as his graduation . ”
“Well, I will not do it, but at last it will be the same as myself . ”
Certainly, the time when Ellen became a first-rate pharmacist was early . Graduating from the prestigious Nova Root Pharmaceutical School and becoming a first-rate pharmacist are different in the same qualifications .
“Hey, did Palle know you became a court pharmacist? That you are her Majesty’s curator and that you are the founder of Diversis Mundi Pharmacy . Also, the fact that you are the Medicine God?”
“I don’t know . ”
Falma shook his head to the left and right .
“If he comes back to your family territory, is it possible to hide your secrets?”
“What do you think would happen if he were to know?”
“Yeah . I don’t think his pride can take it if he were to lose to his younger brother . Moreover, the fact that the younger brother is able to do better will make the position of the eldest son in danger . It’s about the reigns of the family . ”
“Well, I think it won’t get out so easily . Probably because he will be studying at home to become a court pharmacist or he will accompany father to gain an experience from him . ”
“It might be difficult . ”
Cedric said it casually as he read the report for accounting in the book that was newly made in the New Year .
“It seems he heard that there was a pharmacy with a reputable reputation in Imperial City and looks like he was asking for its location . ”
“Cedric-san, what did you say?” Falma froze .
“Every pharmacy has a good reputation, so I told him this location . ”
Recently, all of the pharmacies in Imperial Capital, which are members of Pharmacy Guild (Guild created by Falma, different from Apothecary Guild) had been collaborating with Diversis Mundi Pharmacy . Falma shared the drugs they sold . Diversis Mundi Pharmacy had a good reputation from the patients as well .
“Palle seems to be interested in that new medicine sold by a reputable pharmacy in the Imperial capital . ”
“It’s almost time to open the store” Cedric looked out the window .
“Ah, I have nothing to say!”
“What? What’s wrong?” Ellen asks Cedric .
“Palle is lining up in the queue!”
“Why is brother here? Did he not return to college?!”
“I’m sure he’ll go back to Nova Root after he drops by the pharmacy . ” Cedric read his behavior .
Falma seemed to be soulless . By this time, Ellen thought that she could see a sub voice on Falma’s head as “rubbing off” in a speech balloon .
