I Tried Healing
“People that could use it?”
“Isn’t that the magic used by the Great Tamer from legend? I have heard about it at church!”
…I’ve never heard about that.
Maybe I could learn about the other Tamer skills as well.
“This legend. Where can I hear more about it?”
“Hmm. It was a long time ago, so I am not sure. It wasn’t in this town, that’s for sure…”
I might be able to find out if I could ask Father Shtyle.
There was something very odd about that priest. But he seemed to know a lot.
I had a feeling that we would meet again. So I would ask him when the time came.
I thought about this as I tried to take out the firewood.
But before I could, the door to the guild opened loudly.
“Is the guild doctor here!?”
A man shouted as he frantically ran inside.
It seemed like someone was sick.
The guild had a doctor to treat Adventurers who came back from quests. So he probably came to fetch that doctor.
…And since he was in a hurry, my business would have to wait.
“The Pharmacist has gone out to treat other sick people. What happened?”
“The entire Zyce family have fallen! They are breathing and they aren’t pale or anything. But they are unconscious!”
The situation seemed really bad.
If they weren’t pale but were unconscious, and it was the entire family… The most obvious explanation would be carbon monoxide poisoning.
I once heard that your face actually looks more healthy after carbon monoxide poisoning.
Aside from that, the town was currently suffering from firewood shortages, which led to burning a lot of firewood that was of bad quality.
“…Were they perhaps burning firewood in a sealed room?”
“Yes. Not just Zyce, but every house in Rikardo is burning firewood. What about it?”
“I think I know why they are sick.”
The receptionist looked surprised by this.
“Uhh… Mister Yuji. Are you a doctor?”
“I’m not a doctor, but I know about sicknesses. And I can also use recovery magic. I don’t know if it will work, but shouldn’t I try it?”
“Ye-yes! …Where are Zyce and the others?”
“It seemed like the air in the house was bad, so I took them outside!”
That was a good decision.
It seemed like they didn’t know about carbon monoxide poisoning in this world, but they could at least tell when there was something odd about the air.
“Got it. I’ll go at once!”
