de Medicis Medical Examination and the First Job

Falma was observing the people in the mansion as there was no lessons from Ellen since she had a day-off.

Although Ellen was calling it the Divine Eye, he decided to call it the [Diagnosis Eye] as it has the ability see through the disease. It was an ability that nobody knows other than his teacher, Ellen. It was a secret even to Lotte.

The ability was activated by making a circle on his left hand fingers and check the patient through it, but the movement of making it was too conspicuous. The patient will make fun of him or think that he was crazy. He will certainly receive some ridicule from those higher rank than him. Therefore he made some experiment and found out that he was able to activate the Diagnosis Eye just by placing 2 fingers with his eye in between. The action was better but it was still a bit strange

Although he could see the marker in the human body, he needs to concentrate for it.

Her mother had a severe low back pain, so he made the same compress that he made for Ellen.

Her sister had weak bowels, so he made something like a laxative.

When he was walking around the mansion, he casually examined a person he met.

He found out it was a patient, since the Diagnosis Eye showed something glowing in the patient and he guessed the name of the disease. Before the diagnosis the color was light blue, it turned to white after he diagnosed it correctly. If the diagnosis was wrong, it will never turn to white for good.

Also, if he says the correct name of the prescription drug for the disease, the white light will go out. Then he will make the prescribed drug.

Although he himself had the training and the ability to diagnose, he is met sometimes with difficulty in diagnosing.

In Falma’s previous life, he was a leading genius pharmacologist in the world. So it was only natural that he had medical knowledge, but he was no doctor. Therefore he maniacally names the diseases even though he has no knowledge of it. Still he diagnosed them patiently and prepares a medicine base on the symptom of the patient.

“How do you do young master?”

“Good morning Marianne”

Marianne was in charge of laundry today as they pass each other in the corridor, while she was carrying a large amount of laundry. She was a middle-aged woman who washes the clothes of his parents. Always cheerful, she was pleasant to talk in the laundry drying area. She doesn’t have anything bad in her character.

“Master Falma, please you have to go outside. The weather is beautiful”

“Yes it is Caesar”

Caesar was a middle-aged man, who was a gardener and always speaks to Falma and suggest to go outside. He was healthy too.

(Everyone, living healthy is number 1)

Falma was nodding and grunting in agreement.

He also gave the servants appropriate medical examinations and gave them medicines for treatment using his material creation ability. The servants shed tears with joy. It was said that they had never receive any medicine from the Lord of the mansion.

Even now, Simon the Butler was fidgety when Falma’s father passed him by, seems like he had tooth decay.

Falma was putting the treatment for tooth decay on hold, as it needs further consideration.

“Unexpectedly, father has not seen everyone in the house”

He was chatting with Lotte while strolling through the courtyard in the mansion.

Falma believed that servants should be part of the family too, but it seems that it’s not a common practice in this world.

“Because His Lordship is an apothecary for the nobles. He does not have time to pay attention to the commoners”

“Even though he is an Apothecary of the family?”

“It is the way it is”

It was said that an aristocratic apothecary must not examine a commoner. When a servant suffers from a severe disease, a 3rd Class Apothecary from the Apothecaries Guild will be called upon to examine the patient. He was surprised that the death rate among the commoners was high because the medicines were expensive and treatment was dubious.

The average lifespan of this world was low, assuming someone reached adulthood, there were few things that can extend someone’s life.

“Master Falma does not discriminate and is so kind to us commoners. I am sure you will be an excellent apothecary”

Lotte thanked Falma on behalf of all the servants. However he just said with a smiling face.

“It’s absurd to discriminate against patients by their social status”

It was only natural for Falma, as a person from the modern world, to treat the patients equally and offer the best treatment.

When in Rome, do as Romans do. Nonetheless, there are some things that can’t be conceded.

And now he had discovered another hidden ability when making a circle on his right hand.

He can magnify what he is seeing through the circle depending on the size of the circle!

To sum it up, the following are his abilities so far:

  • Left Hand – Ability to create substances.
  • Doing a circle on his left hand – Diagnosis Eye, the ability to see through the disease.
  • Right Hand – Ability to erase a substance.
  • Doing a circle on his right hand – Ability to magnify the view within the circle.

“I am undoubtedly, not a human being anymore”

It might not have been an exaggeration when Ellen suspected that Falma was the reincarnation of the Medicine God, Falma had arrived to the same belief.

Falma should be ecstatic from having very convenient abilities. However, his wariness outweighs all of it. Furthermore, Falma was really troubled that he doesn’t have a shadow probably because it was compensation for his abilities. The people in the mansion hasn’t seem to noticed it, but it was only a matter time before they do. He made sure to only walk in the shade.

Doing it that way, he can hide the fact that he doesn’t have a shadow.

“But, what about after that?”

It was still OK if it was something like a divine possession, but what about if it was something like a devil? Falma was anxious about it because it would be troublesome if he told someone and a spiritualist heard it.

(Ah, come to think of it)

Falma suddenly realized while sorting out his abilities, he checked something in the jewelry box. All of the jewelry inside seemed to be very expensive. There was a brooch, a ring, and other jewelries. He was not interested in the jewelries, instead he picked a glassware.

“Here it is! I can do it with this”

He collected part of jewelries that had glass and broke it into small clear balls. Then, he heated up the glass pieces over the fire and rounded of the corners to make it into marbles

That was the important part. That day, Falma made something out of glass marbles and a metallic plate in just a few hours. That small work was a simple version of what was his favorite during his past life, he was restless if he doesn’t have that one.

“Oh well, I hope this is good enough for now. Although I really wished for this one to have a good performance”

He was not satisfied with his workmanship, but it will achieve its purpose for now.

That simple handicraft on his hand was glinting in a flash.

“Master Falma. His Lordship has called you”

Several days had already passed, Falma was already getting used to the life in the mansion and he also remembered the faces of all the servants. He had just finished lunch and now was reading while relaxing with Lotte in the garden, Simon the Butler came into his room in a hurry and called him out. The Butler was the highest ranked servant in the de Médicis family.

“I wonder what this is about, I have a bad feeling about this”

Every time Falma’s father called him, it was always been not good.

Mostly it was a surprise quiz of quack pharmaceutics that’s waiting for him.

If that’s it, then everything was still fine.

He thought about when his father called him in the past. It was a full moon that night when they went together to the herbal garden, there seems to be a magic square drawn on top of the center of the gazebo. His father had a frantic expression with both hands waving while chanting some kind of incantation, like it was some form of punishment game. It was said to infuse divine power to the herbal plants.

Falma, who was bitten by the mosquitoes from the bushes, thought that it was a miserable experience. He was doubtful that his father was really a famous apothecary.

He had enough accompanying his father on his outdoor activities. However.

“This is your job as an apprentice Royal Court Apothecary”

Work. It was the first time Simon called out Falma for that.

“It’s the medical examination for Her Imperial Majesty”

Falma shivered as it finally came.

Finally it was his first job.

    Left Hand – Ability to create substances.
    Right Hand – Ability to erase a substance.

    hmm reverse tatsuya shiba??

    • Anon says:

      MC is more hax than Tatsuya from Mahouka.

      Tatsuya can only decompose and restore things from 24 hours ago.

      Meanwhile, the MC in this story has the ability to create anything and destroy anything.

      This is pretty much True God Level.

      This is beyond Tatsuya Shiba.

      • Truthy says:

        You’re seriously overestimating this guy, as well as underestimating one of the most OP MC out there – Tatsuya Shiba,

        Tatsuya can decompose anything even from very long distances, but this guy doesn’t seem to be capable of that.
        Tatsuya can restore anything from 24 hours ago, but this MC can’t do any such thing if that thing is made of substances that he doesn’t understand. He can’t deal with complicated stuff at all.

        Also, this MC can NOT create “anything”. He can only create things that he has deep knowledge of. So nothing complex could be made by him. Hence, his power is quite “Limited”.
        This MC doesn’t have the direct power of destruction unless he uses some Divine Art. He can only “erase” them, and that too seem to be limited in execution (distance and target-wise). On the other hand, Tatsuya is the true “destroyer” if you know about his ultimate power – MB. Therefore, let’s not even use this point for comparison here.

        This MC doesn’t have much power of destruction either in comparison to Tatsuya, who can even destroy the whole planet, so you can see which one of them is inferior.

        Hence, the MC of this novel if FAR from being a “True God”. Tatsuya Shiba is, undoubtedly, beyond this MC “overall” (as that limited ‘creation’ power of this novel’s MC is the only thing going for him against Tatsuya).

        No matter whether it’s the might of his martial power or magical power, Shiba Tatsuya owns this guy in both the aspects as easily as taking a walk in the park, so I don’t get why anyone would claim this MC to be ‘beyond’ such an OP character, unless you’re some blind believer like those religious fanatics.

        Hope I did a good job in preventing others from being misguided by your comment, and helped you in seeing the truth too.

    When magic powers outweigh the effects of legit Earth’s scientific achievements and technological advances, the story gets worse.

  14. Dartanous says:

    Falma should be ecstatic from having very convenient abilities. However, he is a web novel MC – How that line should have read.
