Isn’t it a good child. We’re getting along well. I said to it “Mame-chan, let’s get along, okay?”
Calcilast-sama made a serious face and asked. There’s also some concern in his expression.
“Is it a stray dog? Or is it lost?”
Going by its collar and the price of mame shibas, I replied.
“I think it simply ran away. You wouldn’t normally abandon a mame shiba…”
Calcilast-sama looked like he made a decision. Then he spoke to a soldier who happened to pass by.
“You, might you know of anyone who keeps a mame shiba around here?”
The soldier spoke formally. Of course, with a salute.
“I do not know, but I will go ask other soldiers!”
And soldiers quickly sprang into action. A number of armed soldiers began visiting all houses in the vicinity.
