66 A girl and a demon extermination 1

"That demon has been sitting at the foot of the Spirit Tree for about seven years now.

 Seven years.
 As I listened to the words of the grandfather elf, Silva (who finally told me his name), I thought about the fact that the elves had been tormented by that demon for a long time, almost as long as I had been born. I think about that.

 I've heard that elves generally have a long lifespan, so perhaps seven years for the elves is much shorter than I think. However, I think that seven years of suffering for something important is still a very difficult seven years.

 As Sireva began to speak, the elves in the room looked downcast.
 She said that the elves and spirits had been eaten by the demon. Elves and spirits were being eaten by demons. I was horrified at the thought.

 To my immediate right was Raymer, the griffon I had contracted with. And around him are the other contracted beasts. ...... They are all demons. I happened to be lucky enough to meet ......... and make a contract with them. And I became friends with them. I think we became a family.

 After losing my blood family, I met a family that is not blood related and even has a different appearance.
 But just as there are many different kinds of people in the world, there are many different kinds of demons, and you can't be friends with all of them.

Of course, we didn't start out offering sacrifices according to the demon's wishes. We also took action to defeat that demon. But ...... we could not defeat that demon.

 Sireva said regretfully. It's a demon that the elves couldn't defeat.

"It ate our people right in front of our eyes. "It ate our people right in front of us, and it could have eaten us all at any time, but it offered us a deal.
"Can this thing talk?

 I hadn't wondered about it when it was explained to me earlier, but now I wondered if it could talk.
 The demons under my contract cannot speak. I'm sure you'll be able to find a lot more information on this in the future.

"...... That demon has the ability to speak to minds. It spoke directly to our minds. We can't let it eat all of us. In addition, the demon can do whatever it wants with the Spirit Tree if we leave it alone. We can't just leave the Spirit Tree at ....... As a result, we had to offer sacrifices to .......

 A demon that the elves can't defeat. I still don't know how powerful the elves are. Sireva and the others are the first elves I've met, and I haven't seen the magic they use yet.
 What kind of demon is this that the elves, a race that excels in magic, can't defeat?
 To be honest, I didn't know what kind of demon it was.

I'm not sure what kind of demons the elves can't defeat. I've heard that the elves are good at magic. ......

 I'm sure you'll be glad to hear that. It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for.

It's a demon that eats ...... magic. It's a plant demon, but it eats magic. It eats the magic we cast, and even if we can manage some of it, it regenerates.
"It eats magic?
I suspect that anything with magical power could be food for it. This is why I think they settled at the foot of the Spirit Tree, a tree full of magical power. ......

 I think about the spirit tree, a tree I've never seen before.
 It's a very important tree for the elves, where spirits are born and spirits grow. It is very important to the elves. I'm not sure what to do, but I'm sure I'll be able to do it. I wonder if that spirit will be able to thank me when we defeat the demon. Will he be able to tell me why he said that?

 And at the foot of that special tree, full of magical power, lives a being that feeds on magical power. For magic-eating beings, a tree full of magical power and elves who are skilled in the use of magic are food that they thirst for.

"What if I use something other than magic?

 I ask, "If we're magic-eating beings, shouldn't we be attacking with something other than magic?

"We don't have many ways to attack besides magic. The bow didn't work either.
"If we go to ...... with the beastmen and the gryphons, will that work?
I don't know.

 Elves use magic to attack. And magic-eating demons. It's a bad match. That's probably why Sireva and the others were left to their own devices. Wouldn't that be a problem that could be solved if we could fight alongside a race that is good at something other than magic?

 But then again, we didn't know that elves lived here either. I don't think the elves know exactly where the other races live. And there are a few in human lands that enslave the elves.

 ......... And perhaps most importantly, this group of elves all looked down on the other races, and the idea of cooperation never occurred to them. Sireva finally told me her name, but she said that humans were like lower life forms. So when she found us, she thought of us as sacrifices. They didn't want to help us.

 ---The beastmen were wary of me at first because I'm human. Because I'm human. They were wary of you too. Because you're human. But now they're friendly with me. I think it's because we're no longer categorized as "human". Not because you're human, but because you see me and Ran as such.

 Even the elves think that they are "beasts" or "humans" now. I want to believe that the reason why people say that beastmen are savages and humans are lower is because they only see us in that light. I want to believe that if we can get rid of those things, we can get along.

......... First of all, you're right. Let's see what we can do for each other. Then we'll find out more about the demon and come up with a plan to deal with it. We have no idea what kind of magic elves can do. Sireva and the others will not know how the beastmen fight. At that stage, we cannot coordinate how to confront the demons. It may be unwillingness, but I think it's for the sake of protecting the spirit tree and the spirits that are important to Sireba and the others, so can you tell me what kind of magic you can use?

 I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do that.

 (Maybe the girl who is a godson listens to the story about the demon that torments the elf. And thinking about various things)
