325 Girl and Ruins 6

Genie-san ......, Genie-san ......

 I decided to follow Fresne's advice and call out to the sleeping genie.

 The sinking genie didn't open its eyes. Her eyes remain quietly closed.
 I wondered if my voice could not reach her.

"Genie-san ......

 After I called out several times, the genie's eyes finally opened. Her sky-blue eyes looked at me with a startled expression on her face.

You are the one who is talking to me at ......?

 I'm sure that the choppy voice is due to the fact that this spirit has not spoken for a long time.
 I think she's been here for a long time, trying to disappear all by herself. Those eyes are not friendly to me. Just not hostile.

"Yes. I came here and found you.
So ...... you're a godson like .......

 I don't know whose name he said, but the little voice didn't reach me. But I knew that the spirit was referring to the godson that Douroian had mentioned who had lived in this country in the past.

"......Yes, I am a godson.
So ....... So, why are you talking to me?

 The voice sounded curious.

 Why, why? Her eyes were pleading with me.

"Because I asked Fresne ......, the spirit I'm under contract with. You're about to disappear here. ...... I didn't want you to disappear and not be able to talk to me after meeting you here. I'm not sure what to say, but I'd like to know what you think.

 First, say what you feel.
 I have to tell the genie exactly what I said. If I don't say it out loud, the spirit I just met won't be able to understand my feelings.

 I stared at the genie and told him my words. The genie was looking straight at me as if pondering.

But you're going to disappear right here. That's why I wanted to ask if I could give you ...... magic power.
"...... Yes. If you, the divine child, can give me magic power, ...... I can live. If there is a spirit there, it means that there is a spirit tree nearby.

 I'm not sure what you're thinking.

 I'm not sure what to make of this. ...... Maybe the genie doesn't want to receive magic power from me. You can get a lot more information on the web.
 If that's what the genie really wants, then I guess I have to accept it. You'll be able to find a lot of people who are interested in this kind of thing.

"Well, okay.
I don't care if you put magic into it. I'm sure there's some kind of guidance in ...... that allowed me to meet the godson just before I disappeared. Then I will accept that guidance.

 I'm not sure what to make of that. The spirit, who was under a small tree, jumped up to the top of the pond. Its size is small. The fact that it seemed smaller and more fragile than Fresne was probably a sign that the spirit in front of me was less powerful.

 I'm not sure if it's the same thing, but I think it's a different kind of spirit than Fresne.

My name is Ware. My name is Ware. I'm the beloved child of the water gods--I used to be Stacy's contracted spirit. Now, what is your name, child girl?

 I'm Lerunda.

I'm Lern Da. This is my contracted spirit, Frene.

 I also tell Ware my name.
 Ware hears this and looks at me closely.

"Hmm. You're a child of the sky god. You're different from Stacy. The quality of her magic and stuff. I didn't think I'd see another godling besides Stacy before I disappeared.

 And so Ware reaches out to me.

You're giving me magic. Give it to me. Give it to me. ...... Let's make a deal while we're at it.

 I was surprised to hear that he wanted to make a contract as well. But how is a contract with a name different from a naming contract?

"Yeah. I've been led here and met a godson. So, okay. I already have a name, so just let the magic flow. I'll accept it.

 As Ware said this, I placed my hand on his small hand.

"Well, let's go.

 Then I imagined letting the magic flow into Ware. And then, all at once, the magic power was taken away from my body.

 It's more than I expected, and it makes me dizzy.
 As I sit up, Frené says, "Lelanda, are you okay? I sit up, and Frené says in a panicked voice, "Lelanda, are you okay?

I'm fine. I'm fine.

 When I looked at Ware, he seemed to be glowing.
 The ware, which had been on the verge of losing its power, seemed to be rapidly reviving thanks to my magic power, and I noticed that it had become larger than Fresne. And the fragile image that I had just seen is gone.

It's been a long time since I've felt this full of power. I look forward to working with you. Lelunda, the sky goddess. Lerunda, the sky child. And Freneh, the wind spirit.

 Ware said with a smile.
