291 A girl and a plan to head to the ruins 2

"Lernda, I'm going to ask you to go to the ruins in a small group first. First, let's conduct a survey, and after confirming that it is safe, Lerunda will go to the ruins. I think I'll go with you to investigate.
"You too, Mr. Ran?
Yes. It's interesting to see the remains of a long-forgotten country. Moreover, as a researcher, I think there are some discoveries that can be made only by me going there. I also want to be of more help to this village.

 The plan to go to the ruins - first of all, it seems that some of us will be going there to investigate.
 He said that since Gaius and I are still children, the adults will go first. Gaius is older than me, so he'll be an adult soon, but he's still classified as a child in this village.

 Mr. Ran seems to be more excited about how many new things he will find at the ruins than he is worried about going there.
 He really loves new things, that's what I think.

"Mr. Lan, isn't that dangerous? Are you okay?
"You're worried about me. Thank you. I'm fine. There was no danger when Nilshi and the others visited, so there's little chance of danger. Also, Lelunda, if Lelunda gives you permission, would it be possible for you to send someone with whom Lelunda has a contract to investigate the ruins?
"Yes. Of course. No problem.

 I'm sure that if Griffon, Sipho, Fresne and the others go with you, the possibility of everyone encountering danger will be greatly reduced.
 Doanea is still too small to go, but if I tell the others, she'll stay with Ran and the others.

Thank you very much. Lerunda.
 Once we're sure there's no danger, we'll head to the ruins with you.

 Ran-san smiled kindly when I nodded.

 But I think I'll miss you a little bit if you go to the ruins to investigate.
 Since I'm staying in the same house with you, I might be filled with loneliness for a while.
 But since she is looking forward to going to the ruins so much, and since going to the ruins may have a positive impact on this village, I want to send her off not with sadness but with good luck.

 That's what I'm thinking, but it seems to have come out in my expression.

Lerunda, what's wrong?
"Nilsi, ......

 When I was walking with Sifo in the square, Nilsi who was walking in front of us asked me such a question.
 I wondered if it was on my face.

"Are you going to the ruins, Nilsi?
Are you going to the ruins? Yes, that's right. Let's go. I've been there once before, I can show you.
I see.

 I was a little sad to think that Nilshi, who had just returned, would be going back to the ruins.

"What, are you lonely?

 I'm sure you'll be able to understand what I mean. My hair gets all messed up.

The ruins are not that far from here. The ruins aren't that far from here, and you won't be leaving for a long time like you did last time, so don't be so lonely.
...... Yeah.
Well, don't worry, I'm going to come back safe and sound. I'll keep an eye on Ran, too, to make sure she doesn't get out of control.
Yeah. I want you to come back safely. But you're right, Ran, you do seem to run wild. He loves ruins and stuff.
You're right. ....... He's so curious, it's like he's a child.
Mr Ran, he's an adult. There's so much he wants to know, but I admire him.
...... No, I don't think Lelunda should be like that. If you want to be an adult, you need to be an adult.

 Nilusi said with a subtle look on his face. In the midst of this, Ran, who had been standing nearby for some time, glanced at Nilsi and said, "What are you talking about?

"What do you mean? It's not good to have more adults like Ran who get excited like children.
I am aware that I can get carried away when I like something, but not to the extent that you say. Lerunda, you mustn't become an adult like Nilsi. I'm sure you're not the only one.
"......, you're a terrible talker, aren't you?
You said it first, didn't you?

 Ran and Nilshi began to quarrel. But they both seemed to be enjoying themselves, which I found strange.
 It's not that they don't get along, it's just that this is their friendship.

"Oh, yes. Lerunda.
What's wrong?

 As if they had suddenly stopped quarrelling, Mr. Lan looked at me.

"Before we went to the ruins, sir. Before we head to the ruins, we're going to celebrate the resurrection of the Spirit Tree. We can't see the spirits, so Lerunda needs to talk to them.

I see. It's been a year.
Yeah. That's right. It's been a year since the Spirit Tree was revived. We want to celebrate again.
Yes. I'll let you know.

 I nodded to Ran-san's words.
