Sister Linda went to the entrance of the village after hearing that someone important was looking for her.
What she found was a group of people she had never seen before.
“Who are you?” Sister Linda asks cautiously.
In response, the sharp-looking man at the front of the group spoke to her in a polite voice.
“Nice to meet you. My name is Bahamut Fernandez, I am the head of the Beden Merchant Company. Are you the one incharge of this parish, Sister Linda Halls?”
“Ah yes. That’s right. I am Linda Halls. Nice to meet you.”
Hearing that the owner of the Beden Merchant Company himself was standing in front of her, Linda bowed politely with a hint of surprise. She, too was well aware of the reputation of the Beden Merchant Company, which dominated the commercial districts of Lugano as well as the entirety of Schwyz.
Currently, the iron ore being mined in the village were being distributed to other regions by the Beden Merchant Company.
Recognizing that the person in front of her was not an ordinary person, Sister Linda began to treat the other party with caution.
“Well… first of all, since you’ve come a long way, please come inside.”
“Let’s do that.”
Bahamut readily accepted Linda’s offer. Then he looked at the other people accompanying behind him and said, “You all may go rest for a while. This matter won’t be that long. And… Ophelia.”
“Yes, My Lord.”
“You come in with me.”
Leaving the others alone, Bahamut and Ophelia began to move, following Sister Linda’s guidance.
At the office supervising iron ore mining.
Baramut slowly sat down on a chair in a place that was shabby from the outside to the inside.
The cheap wooden chair gave off an uncomfortable feeling as it was clearly out of balance, and the inside smelled of iron even though it had been cleaned to some extent.
“I am sorry that the hospitality is quite poor considering your status. I can’t do more than this at the moment”
As she presented the juice of some unknown fruit, Sister Linda showed a slightly apologetic smile, which Bahamut accepted without much complaint.
“Don’t be. Rather, it is I who should be grateful for this kind of hospitality even though I come without notice. By the way… I’ve heard your story a few times, and it’s amazing.”
“What do you mean?”
“This iron mine area. I was surprised by how much bigger it was compared to what I originally thought. I just saw it in passing, but there are also more people working here than I thought, and the quality of the mined ore is very good as well.”
Bahamut spit out sincere admiration with shining eyes.
Sister Linda felt a little proud when she heard someone praise the place she had created, and she responded with a benevolent attitude, “To think that the owner of the Beden Merchant Company, whose reputation is so widespread, would say that. I really don’t know what to say. It’s a difficult job, and it’s something a lot of people have done with their collective strength… I haven’t done much.” Sister Linda spoke with humility.
In response to her attitude, Bahamut waved lightly and continued talking without losing his smile.
“No, it is not. Any work, no matter how good the conditions are, cannot be accomplished without the capacity of a leader. Furthermore, to achieve this level of achievement under such adverse conditions is obviously impossible with mediocre abilities.”
“Ah. You’re really exaggerating.” Sister Linda smiled lightly at Bahamut’s words.
Although she was still showing modesty, it was clear that she didn’t hate his words.
And… while looking at Sister Linda behave that way, Bahamut spoke to her with sincerity, “I was looking for someone like you.”
Sister Linda gave a slightly surprised look at the unexpected words, and Bahamut continued to speak,
“You may not know, but… the most important thing in leading any organization is how well you can handle the people. In particular, the larger the scale, the more talented people you will need.”
