Chapter 67 – Girl and the path to defeating a monster – part two
Mister Sileva looks like he’s thinking about what mister Dongu said.
He probably doesn’t want to talk about what he can do.
If we get closer, will mister Sileva look at us with a smile instead of this stiff expression
Will the elves smile at us if we can solve the problem with the spirit tree I’m sure they’ve been very nervous all this time, because something that important to them is in trouble.
I think they will become more relaxed if this problem goes away.
“Our specialty is magic.
We can use our own magic energy, but we also cast magic by borrowing strength from spirits with whom we have formed a contract.
However, our spirits have lost most of their strength, since they are unable to rest in the spirit tree.”
Spirits become weaker if they don’t rest in the spirit tree, and they can’t rest right now.
And since the elves can’t borrow the spirit’s strength, they are also weaker.
That monster is intelligent, so maybe it’s even doing that on purpose.
“Fire, water, wind, earth, lightning, dark, light, and holy.
Those are the elements of magic, but most in our village specialize in earth magic.
I have heard of elves that specialize in fire magic, but I have not met one.
Our magic uses the soil, and we are especially good at making it move.”
The elves use earth magic, but there are also elves that use fire magic.
Does it depend on where they live Grandma taught me about magic, but in practice, I don’t know a lot about it.
Can I use earth magic too
I have no idea what kind of magic I can use.
I don’t know what magic can do.
What could I do if I could use earth magic
“…How did you use earth magic to attack the monster”
“By firing earth spheres, for example.”
…It’s a plant monster, so is earth magic weak against it Even if it wasn’t a monster that eats magic energy, plants use earth to spread their roots.
Since this monster is intelligent, did it choose an easy target, and then go after the spirit tree on purpose to use as a hostage I don’t know for sure, but that seems like a good way to make the elves obey it.
But magic is very strong, so even if this isn’t the right type of magic to use against a plant monster, it’s hard to believe it didn’t do any damage at all.
I’m sure there are many different ways to use magic, but I don’t know a lot about it, and I honestly don’t even know how to fight that monster.
Also, I’ve never encountered a dangerous monster.
I don’t think I would’ve ever come across this one either, but it’s harming the elves, so we have to do something about it.
At this rate, it’s just going to keep eating them.
I generally never see monsters, but if I go to it because I want to, I think I can meet it.
I think I’m probably the miko, but I don’t really understand the miko’s powers.
If I did, I think I could do a lot more to help them.
That’s what I think, but in the end, if I don’t know, I don’t know.
All I can do is try to understand it little by little.
Can you show it to us later We haven’t seen a lot of magic, so we can’t fully understand what it’s like without seeing.
We also don’t fully understand how you use that magic to fight that monster.”
Mister Sileva doesn’t look too happy, but it looks like he has no choice but to agree.
I’m going to see their magic.
Can I use earth magic too I need to ask mister Sileva if they have anything to measure magic aptitude.
If I learn how to use magic, I’m sure I’ll be able to help everyone more.
“It’s our turn.
Generally speaking, we beast people cannot use magic.
Some can use physical strengthening, but that is all.
Maybe some of us have magic aptitude, but we have no way of measuring it, so we don’t know if any of us has the potential to use magic.”
People with magic energy can possibly use magic other than physical strengthening, but we can’t tell.
Gaius can feel magic energy, so maybe he can use other things too.
And then, we continue talking about the monster and how to defeat it, but we can’t decide on how to fight it, so we end the discussion for now.
Right now, all I think about is how I can help them do it, and how I want to do my best.

(The girl that is probably the miko wants to be helpful, and wishes to take part in defeating the monster.)
