21 Girl and Magic Story 2

Lernda, magic can produce good or bad results, depending on how you use it.

 I'm learning about magic from my grandmother.

 Gaius and the child gryphons are with him. Gaius is interested in magic, so he said he'd take it with me. And the little gryphons are here because they said, "I'll listen with Lerunda! and they're here.

 Auntie smiled and accepted Gaius and the gryphons' request to listen together. I like her kind smile.

"Yeah. Yes, that's right. Lerunda. Magic is a powerful force. I think it's good to have power, though. Having power means you have to be careful how you use it. The people in this village are kind. I'm proud of them. But ...... the last time Lernda healed him with magic, if a bad adult found out, they might force him to heal his wounds because they don't care what happens to Lernda.
"...... I see.

 The beastmen in this village are kind. The beastmen of this village are kind, and because they are kind, they are worried about me. They even got angry at me for being so reckless with Gaius. But I just happened to be lucky that everyone I met was kind. I felt like I was really lucky.
 I realize that again.

Lelunda should learn about magic to avoid that. I'm sorry, but I can't actually use magic, so I can only pass on my knowledge.
"Auntie. Knowledge is good. Thank you.

 I have no knowledge of magic. As a mere village girl, magic was far from my mind. There was no one around me who could use magic, and even if I knew magic existed, I had never seen it. The fact that I could use magic is still a mystery to me no matter how many times I think about it.

To use magic, all you need is aptitude and magical power. You need aptitude and magic power to use magic. There's no way to measure aptitude in this village, though. Considering that Lerunda healed a wound the other day, I'd say she has a high aptitude for sacred magic. If she didn't have a high aptitude, she wouldn't have been able to use so much magic without learning it.

 That's what my aunt said.
 Apparently, my aptitude for sacred magic is high. I think that means I can heal more injured people if I work hard. I want to be good at sacred magic. I want to be good at sacred magic so that I can heal the people I love when they get hurt.

"GuruGuruGuru (Lern Da Awesome)
I don't know, but Lelanda looks happy!

 Lema and Luma, two of Raymer's children, took up positions on either side of me, listening to my aunt and shouting, and being warned by my aunt to be quiet. The other two little gryphons are on either side of Gaius. Gaius listened to his aunt earnestly.

I don't know if there are any other aptitudes at the moment, but ...... Lerunda seems to have a lot of magic power. If you can learn magic properly, I think Lelanda can become a great adult.
I'll do my best.

 I don't know what kind of adult a great adult is, but I think it's good to work hard. I don't know what kind of adult a great adult is, but I think it's good to work hard. I can't practice magic at the moment, but if I can learn what magic is, it will help me in the future, so I'll work hard.

There are three types of magic aptitudes: fire, water, wind, earth, lightning, darkness, light, and sacred magic. Sacred magic is the most special of these aptitudes because it can heal wounds. That's why so few people can use sacred magic. Many of those who can use sacred magic are taken over by temples without their consent. So if Lernda doesn't want to be taken in by the temple, she shouldn't reveal her aptitude for sacred magic in front of the priests.

 I listened to her, thinking that she had such an aptitude for magic, but I heard that if she could use sacred magic, she would be taken away by the temple. The temple is the place where my sister was taken, right? I can't have that. There's a chance she might even be a godchild, so we need to be careful.

Obaba, what's a temple?
Oh, a temple is a place in a big city where gods are worshipped. Since we live in the forest, we worship familiar gods such as gryphons, but temples in large countries mainly worship the gods who created this world. Gaius has learned about the gods who created this world, hasn't he? The temples that worship these gods are ....... We beastmen don't even have a country, we only have villages like the one we live in. It is the human nation that makes temples. Non-humans don't have countries and can't afford to build temples. Maybe some races do have temples, but I don't know of any.

 That's what my aunt said to Gaius.
 Only humans have a country, she said. She said that only humans have countries and can afford to build temples. ...... I've heard a little bit about the gods who created this world in the village where I grew up. I don't know much about it, though.

I'm sure you'll be able to find something that works for you.
"Probably. Lerunda is only a human being. ....... You should be careful, because if they find out that you are living in this village, they might give you trouble.

 Humans and beastmen.
 It's a good idea to be careful.

 Athos said that sometimes humans enslave beastmen, and I wish they would stop doing that. Why would they do such a thing to a beastman who is so kind to them? The more I think about it, the more I'm bothered.

Is that so? ......
Yeah. Yeah, that's right. So, Gaius, I'm sure you'll be fine with Raymar and the others, but you have to protect Lelanda.
Yeah. Of course!

 Gaius responded to his aunt's words without hesitation. Gaius, you're protecting me. I'm glad. Gaius, you're protecting me.

And now back to magic. The higher the magical aptitude, the more advanced the magic, and the lower the magical power, the less meaningful it is. There have been people throughout history who had a lot of magic power but struggled because they lacked magical aptitude.
"Auntie, what about body-enhancing magic? Which of the aptitudes does that count as?
Oh, I forgot to explain that too. There are things that can't be categorized anywhere, like body enhancement. It can be used by anyone with magic power. It's known as magic for the unfit. ......
I wonder if I can use it?
You can use it if you have the magic, but I doubt it. If you're interested, you might want to learn it. If you are interested, you may want to learn it. However, there are many people who can't use magic, so don't be discouraged if you can't. But Lelunda has plenty of magic power, so there's a good chance she could learn to use body-enhancing magic.

 I listened to what my aunt was saying while taking notes using the letters I had learned.

 In short, you can use body enhancement spells regardless of your aptitude. I think it's convenient to have magic that can be used as long as you have magic power, but I wonder if the magic used by those without aptitude doesn't even have a name. If my aunt doesn't say so... I'd like to be able to use body-enhancement magic. I thought to myself, "Maybe I should ask someone in the village who can use body enhancement.

 (Maybe the girl who is a godchild is listening to her aunt about magic. And she's interested in body enhancement.
