91 The change of the boy with the girl

 I talked to Gaius and learned about his mind.

 The next day, I fell asleep quite soundly. But I jumped out of bed, startled by the buzzing around me.

 What's going on? Is something wrong? I wondered and headed towards the noise.
 At the center of it was Gaius.
 Gaius had a puzzled expression on his face.

"Is that ......?

 I let out a surprised cry.
 The color of Gaius' ears and tail were different. It used to be brown, but now it was different.

"Beautiful, silver. ......

 The color of his ears and tail had changed to silver. It was the most beautiful color I've ever seen. When I woke up, I noticed that the color had changed. This makes me, ......, look at Raymer without thinking.
 When I woke up, I saw that Raymer had also changed.

 Did the same thing happen to Gaius? Did I ...... wake him up?

"...... Gaius, the color, maybe it's my fault.
Lernda's fault?
Yeah, ......, Raymar turned gold when he wished I hadn't gotten hurt. I prayed for Gaius. Maybe ...... that's why.

 I said as I approached Gaius, who was surrounded by everyone.
 It might have been my fault.
 No, not maybe, I think it was my fault.

I think it was my fault. ...... Is that right?
"Yeah, maybe ......, Gaius, did you have a dream?
Oh, .......
...... Sorry, man.
Why are you apologizing?
Gaius, you said you wanted to empower yourself. I did something to Gaius. Gaius, you might not have wanted to.

 Gaius might have wanted to become strong on his own. Gaius might have wanted to be strong by his own hand. Gaius may not have wanted it, may not have wanted it. ---I may have given it to him even though he may not have wanted it.
 Gaius might not like me. That thought made me nervous.

Lelanda, perhaps it's not. I believe that Gaius was given a blessing by Lelanda, but that blessing can only be given if the giver agrees to it.

 The first person to reply to my words was Ran.
 By the way, I think Raymer was also asked something, and he answered and said that a change came to him. I wonder if this is also true for Gaius.

"Gaius, is that so?
"...... Oh. He asked me and I answered and ...... I accepted it for sure. I thought it was a dream, and I didn't think there would be any change.

 I'm not sure if it's a change that Gaius wanted or not.

I'm sorry. Maybe Gaius didn't want the change. I may have done something I shouldn't have.
"Don't worry about it. It's ...... complicated to get power in any form, but I'm happy to have it.
Yeah. ......
"There's something about the feeling of power that comes with it. It looks like a color change, but it's not. It's just a color change. ...... But right now, it's just a given. I want to be able to take this power that is given to me and make it my own. I want to be able to keep up with what I've been given and be of use to others.

 Gaius looked me in the eye.
 Gaius is still kind. And I think he has a strong heart. If he wasn't, he wouldn't have acted that way when I told him I might be a godson. And even now, even though he's depressed about not being able to help me, he doesn't get downhearted.

 ---I still think Gaius is great.

Yeah, ...... I'll do my best, too. I'm going to do my best. And there's everyone who's under contract. But ...... I don't have that power myself.

 What Gaius is thinking is what I'm thinking too.
 There might be something special about me. And then there's everyone else with whom I have a contract. They may be very good. But I'm not awesome. I want to be more worthy of being their contractor. I want to be the one who can stand proudly with everyone.

"So, Gaius, let's work together. Let's be strong together.

"Yeah. ......
"Raymer, it's getting bigger and bigger. Gaius has to know what's changed.

 Gaius, Raymar has had big changes, like getting bigger, but I don't see any big changes. His ears and tail have changed color, but what else has changed? I thought I had to know that too.

 Just as I myself need to know more about the power of a possible godson. I thought I should know about Gaius too.

Lelunda, you are a godson after all.

 Mr. Ran was writing something while muttering such a thing.

 ---- The girl and the boy's change
 (Maybe the prayers of the girl, who is a divine child, will change the beast boy. The girl told the boy to do his best, and he nodded.
