I wonder if it's true for Fito-chan that she doesn't need to see the people in the village. Fito's eyes seem to be a little sad. Doesn't Fito really want to be friends with the villagers?
Doesn't she really want to be friends with the villagers not as the daughter of a god but as Fito-chan?
Isn't that what Phyto-chan really wants, ......?
Phyto-chan ...... really wants to get along with the people of the village, no?
I ...... know how you feel. I was never called by my first name in my village. That, my sister. But now they call me by my name, and I'm so happy. You want to be called by your name too, don't you, Phyto?
If the villagers don't care about you, they won't hold you hostage. You like your people, don't you, Fito?
...... Yeah, maybe.
She looked a little sad and said.
Then let's try to get them to accept you even if you are not the daughter of that god. I'll help you with that.
"...... Lelunda is more special than I am. But Lelunda is seen as Lelunda. ...... The two people behind me also care about Lelanda. I wish I could find someone who would see me that way. ......
I'm sure you're not the only one. I'm sure you'll be happy to hear that.
I'm not sure what to do. I also want someone who can look after me even if I have no power. If I could, I'd like ...... everyone to take care of me as a mere human being.
That's what Phyto-chan said. That's what she wants. She wants to live her life as a girl, not as a girl of God, and to be seen as such.
Maybe we are similar in some way, Phyto-chan and I.
I've always been distinguished from my sister and recognized only as a thing or a sister.
Fito, the daughter of a god, who was never seen as a mere human being with no power.
I love everyone who looks at me. I'm really happy to be called by my name. I wish you could know that joy.
"Fito-chan ......, let's be my friend.
Because being alone is lonely. I'd be happier with a friend. So I said.
"Friends at ......?
"Yes. And so that together we can laugh at Fito as just Fito.
Phyto nodded at my words.
I'll be his friend, too. Mr. Dong, will Phyto ever be able to leave this place?
Gaius approached me, listening to my conversation with Fito. And then he asks Mr. Dong.
...... be a friend. I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do this, but I'm sure I'm going to be able to do it. And yet, I've taken the liberty of saying it to myself: ....... In the event you're not sure what you're looking for, there are a few things you can do.
...... That is something we will discuss and decide. But if the girl has no power, she will be able to go out, although she may be monitored. I don't have a problem with Lernda or Gaius being her friends, ......, but I hate to say this, but it doesn't mean that she isn't lying. If you don't learn to be a little more suspicious, you will be deceived.
Ms. Dong has a good point. Phyto-chan does not seem to be lying, but there are people in the world who do. Somehow, intuitively, I know that Fito is telling the truth, but there are deceivers in the world. That's why you have to learn to be a little more suspicious of people.
"Phyto-chan, ...... if I get permission to go outside, I'll show you my favorite place.
"Yes, ......, but even if you can't, it's okay. Lerunda and the others have become my friends. I won't hold my breath.
Fito is more mature than I am. She's more mature than I am, and she's accepting of her situation, even if she can't go out. I thought about that and realized that I needed to think and say more.
After that, Gaius and I talked a lot with Fito while Mr. Dong was watching over us. The things she told us about the God's daughter were to be given to other adults.
I hope you can go outside, Fito. I want to show you where I pray when I get permission to go out. And I want to introduce you to Kayu and the others.
---It'd be best if we could get in touch with those people too. That's what I thought.
