140 What a girl and a boy can do

 It was decided that I would go see Fito again later. I've been told that I'm not allowed to go see Fito alone yet, so I'll have to find a convenient day to go see him again.

 I am now with Gaius, who has changed into the form of a wolf.

 This is because I still don't know what Gaius can actually do now that he can change into the form of a wolf. Gaius said that if he can do more things, he wants to be able to use those things.

 I'm also learning to use magic more.
 I'm learning to float and move a little more freely with magic. As usual, I can't do much except for wind magic at the moment, but I feel that what I can do is increasing little by little. I'm happy about that.
 Gaius, in wolf form, is at my side. He's fast. And big. Gaius in fluffy form, very cool.

"Gaius, can you use magic?
"Gargling. It's hard.

 "Gaius, do you think you can use magic? I brush Gaius's hair as a wolf from time to time.
 I'm slowly learning to do more and more with Gaius.

Gaius, I think you can use wind magic well, thanks to Lelunda's influence.
"I want to be able to use it.
I'm sure you'll be able to use it. I'm sure it takes a lot of magic to get back into that form.

 Gaius was able to hear Fresne's voice and appearance all the time because of my influence, which caused his ears and tail to change color and his wolf form. At Fresne's words, Gaius reverted to his original form. When he returned to his human form, Gaius sat down and rested. He looked less tired than when he had changed before, could it be because he had changed so many times that he had gotten used to it? Or is it possible that my magic power has increased due to some kind of influence? There are many things that I don't understand at the moment.

 I want to learn more about my power. I want to know what I can do and what I can't do. If I don't know where my limits are, it will be very difficult when something happens.
 I wonder if I can change my appearance if I try hard enough. If there is such a magic, my dream will expand.

 In order for Gaius to be able to use wind magic, I will first show him wind magic. I'm going to make something that can be called a wind blade appear and cut down a tree from the root. The tree falls down with a loud noise.
 Gaius tries to do the same thing and shuts his eyes. He must be concentrating. His silver ears and tail are moving slightly.

 I can vaguely perceive that magical power is gathering around Gaius. And that gathered magic is taking shape. Just before the magic is completed, Gaius opens his eyes. The spell forms and hits the tree I cut down and another tree. Maybe it wasn't strong enough, but it didn't fall, but the spell was definitely formed.

I did it!

 Gaius shouted happily.
 Little by little, we are able to do more and more things. It's nice to be able to do more and more.

Gaius, let's do our best to stay afloat. I want to go for a walk in the sky with Gaius.

 I think it would be fun if Gaius could float and we could take a walk in the sky together. If I can use magic to make everyone float, will I be able to float together with everyone who can't use magic? I can't help but wonder if I'll ever be able to use that much magic.


 Gaius also nodded his head with shining eyes when he heard about walking in the sky.

I'd like to be able to do more, so that I can be with everyone forever.

 I want to do more, more, more. Even though I can do more, I want to go further. That thought comes to me a lot. That's because Gaius proposed to me his dream of creating a place where everyone can laugh. That dream that Gaius wished for and spoke of became not only mine, but everyone's dream.
 It's because of that dream that Gaius mentioned that I could relate to that dream, that I wanted to work hard for that dream---that's why I can work hard no matter what.

Yes, ...... I want to work hard to be with everyone, to create a place where everyone can feel safe.

 Fortunately, I don't have any problems in my life right now. Maybe someday we'll have to fight again. No, I just don't think time will pass peacefully like this.
 That's why we have to do more. For us, to make our dreams come true.

Let's do as much as we can.

 We nodded at each other, and for a while, we continued to do what we could to increase what we could do.
 Gaius was trying to see if he could use magic while in wolf form, but he couldn't succeed yet.
