64 Girl and Elf 8

 The grandfather elf looks surprised at my words. I never thought I'd say something like this.

"Grandpa Elf, I wish I could be friends with the elves. The reason why they want to sacrifice everyone is because ...... there is a demon. So, if we can defeat the ...... demon, all our problems will be solved.

 It's always better to get along than to hate each other. The elves have not sacrificed anyone yet, though the truly helpless will turn against them. They've said they will, but it's not too late.

What makes you think you can ......
There is no "basis. But I believe I can. And if you don't try, you'll never know if you can or can't.

 There's no proof that you can defeat a demon. But I believe in it. I believe that if we all work together, we can do anything. And if we give up because we can't, then even if I survive, I don't want to be without the people I want to live with.
 So I'm going to convince the grandfather elf. I have to. It's because I can sense the spirit that the grandfather elf will listen to me.

 My words silenced the grandfather elf. The next moment, I saw something shaking beside the grandfather elf.
 Could it be a spirit? I can't see it clearly. But I can feel it. I know for sure it's there.

You are .......

 Just as the spirit made some kind of movement, the grandfather elf spoke to me. Then he shook his head and said.

I don't know why. I don't know why. But my spirit told me to side with you. You don't have the strength to speak to me anymore. He wants me to side with you, to fight with you as you say.
 He sounded frustrated.
"...... There may be something about you. I'm not sure what to make of it, but I'm sure it's worth it. ...... I'm not sure how a mere mortal could be so concerned about a genie. I can't ignore what the spirits say. I'm reluctant to do this, but I'll take your suggestion.

 The grandfather elf called me a mere mortal. And the beastmen, "savage beastmen." I wonder if I can change that assessment. Will the elves ever accept us?

 I don't know, but for now, I'm just glad that the genie asked me to fight with him so that we wouldn't have to sacrifice ourselves. Oh, thank goodness. I'm glad my words were understood. I felt relieved and weak and sat down and couldn't stand up.

 The old elf who was going to take me to the others let out a sigh when he saw that I couldn't stand up, but he took me with him.

 Not by carrying me, but by magic. He spun a chant, probably wind magic, and the old elf lifted me up. I could feel the magic flowing. The magic flowing from the grandfather elf was gentle and comforting.

 The elves and Mr. Dong were surprised to see me and the grandfather elf together. Then Mr. Lan came with the elves, looking as if he didn't know what was going on, and as soon as he saw my face, he hugged me and said, "I'm glad you're okay. Ran-san was also glad that I was safe.

 Mr. Dong asked the grandfather elf for an explanation.

 The grandfather elf gave the same explanation to Mr. Dong and the others that he had given to me. The faces of the beastmen and Mr. Ran turned pale at the horrible plan of the elves to sacrifice them. But Mr. Dong kept his cool.

"So, if you told us about it, does that mean you've dropped the plan?
"Yes, that's right. We were going to ...... sacrifice you so that we would not be sacrificed ourselves. That's why we brought you here. But then something unexpected happened. This girl could feel the spirits. And I talked to her. She said. "Will you help me defeat this demon?

 This girl, this girl, the old elf said without calling me by my name. I thought behind the grandfather elf's back.
 The grandfather elf continued to look around puzzled.

I could have brushed it off. I could have fought that demon and not lost. But my spirit whispered to me for the first time in a long time that I should fight with ...... her. I can't just ignore what the spirit says. So I've decided to fight with you. Wouldn't you rather fight with me than sacrifice yourselves?

 The grandfather elf said and looked at Mr. DONG. Mr. Dung looked at me. I nodded. Mr. Dung let out a small sigh.
"All right. ...... I can't forgive you for trying to sacrifice us. But that's before it happened. We don't want to antagonize the elves either.

 And so on.

 Mr. Dong continued.

"......... In exchange, if we are able to defeat this demon, we would like you to recognize us as individuals, not as 'humans' or 'beastmen'. If we can defeat that demon, you will recognize us as individuals, not as "humans" or "beastmen. And allow us to stay in this place as your official companions.
 At Mr. Dong's words, the grandfather elf said.
"......... is fine, if you really want to defeat that monster.
 And so on.
