Chapter 7: The Secret Garden

 A bush that sways with an eerie rustling sound. Tension runs through Gyre and Christopher’s faces. And then it showed itself.

“It’s a slime!”

“Hiee!”

 Gyre screamed and Christopher was frightened.

“Calm down. Aim for the core! It shouldn’t be moving fast!”

 It was a slime, one of the small fry monster representatives. I think it’s probably no big deal. As evidence of that, the escorts are also watching the situation without putting their hands on it. They were probably trying to give us a taste of combat.

“Can I beat it with a wooden sword?”

“You can do it if you crush the core. It’s not that hard, is it?”

“Gyre, you’ve got to take it down now!”

 Gyre readied his wooden sword at my advice. It was a thrusting posture. He seemed to intend to make a thrust at the core. Christopher and I stepped back.

“chest!”

 Gyre thrusts at the slime with determination. It hit the core of the slime without missing a beat. You’re good, Gyre. You are indeed the son of a knight commander. If a seven-year-old boy can do this well, it’s enough.

 With its core destroyed, the slime lost its shape and finally stopped moving. It was a complete victory.

“Well done, Gyre. You did a great job.”

“Thank you!”

“As expected of Gyre!”

 They both look happy. The escort knights were looking at us with warm eyes.

 We had a bit of trouble, but we had to get the poisonous weed plants. Carefully dig around it with a shovel and collect it so as not to damage the roots.

 Yeah, it worked. I really wanted some magic grass, but I couldn’t spend any more time here. Soon we were back at the mansion.

 With that foot, I visited my mother, who was in the sunniest salon at the Margrave Heine’s residence.

“Mother, I would like to grow flowers just like you. Can I grow them in your garden?”

“Oh dear, is Julius interested too? I don’t mind. Feel free to do it.”

 The mother smiled smugly. Gardening is a widespread hobby of the nobility. His mother is one of them. She had created a magnificent rose garden in one corner of the courtyard. I thought that if I stimulated that area, I would get permission.

“Thank you! I’ll get right on building my flower beds.”

“Oooh, I’m looking forward to it.”

 Well, it’s a flower bed, but it’s a medicinal herb garden. Uh-huh.

 After receiving permission, I headed to a corner of the garden with Gyre and Christopher.

 The garden of the Margrave Heine family is large. That should be it. Just because he is a Margrave, the Heine Margrave family has a house in a remote area. The land is therefore large, but only in vain. I could have said, “Everything from here onwards is my land!” It was safe to say.

 If it is too close to the mansion, it cannot be expanded later. With that in mind, I decided to make a medicinal herb garden some distance away.

“Okay, let’s do it around here.”

“Julius-sama, there are nothing but weeds around here. Perhaps you intend to turn this area into a flower bed now?”

“Hi-yee.”

 The two screamed. It would be so. After all, the only tool I have is the shovel in my hand. But there’s nothing wrong with that.

“Just watch and wait.”

 I concentrated my magical power and used earth magic to create a flower bed in no time. The soil composition has already been improved to make it suitable for growing medicinal herbs. Magic is amazing. A skill not from the previous life that I’m glad to have. I used the ‘cultivate soil’ skill to create fertile land.

“Okay, all that’s left now is to plant the seedlings we brought home.”

“Wow, that’s amazing! This is magic.”

“Hi-yee!” (Yeees)

 Christopher has been saying nothing but “hi-yee” for a while now, but is it a habit? Oh well. I planted the medicinal herbs and the poison-eliminating herbs while using my ‘dividing the plants’ skill. I also planted the herbs I found along with them. This is to repel insects.

 That’s it. Now all that’s left is a shower of water using the water magic method and you’re done.

 The water produced by the water magic method contains magic power, and this water promotes the growth of plants. If you come to water the plants every day, you will be able to harvest them faster.

“This is the end of today’s work. Let’s go back.”

“It all happened so fast.”

“Julius-sama’s magic is amazing!”

“No, no, anyone who can use magic can do it. It’s not uncommon at all.”

“Really……”

 Of course it is a lie. Probably no ordinary wizard could do the same. It would have to be someone who knows a lot about growing fields. I can use this magic because I grew plant materials in the game.

 While appeasing Christopher, who looked a little disappointed, we returned to the mansion and disbanded on the spot. When I returned to my room, I ordered the servants to refrain from entering and smiled.

 I have in my pocket the medicinal herbs I have just obtained. There’s no way I won’t use this.

“It’s been a long time, four years. The day has finally come.”

 I was thinking of using the medicinal herbs I obtained to create a magic potion.
