This is a Miracle - Chapter 16
Shirley is a very ordinary white filly without a name.
As for the name Shirley, it was given to her by her strange new master who just rescued her from the ferocious wolves.
Well, he’s really a strange person.
“It seems that you also like this name.”
Bai Luo stroked the little filly’s neck. He quickly noticed that although Shirley’s appearance isn’t particularly outstanding, she is extraordinarily smart. She seemed to really understand him.
“My name is Bai Luo.”
Bai Luo didn’t care about Shirley’s origins, nor did he want to ask.
In his opinion, he saved Shirley from certain death. As long as Shirley doesn’t object, she will be Bai Luo’s horse and companion.
“Will you go with me? I will raise you.”
Bai Luo poured many soybeans, corn, and small tomatoes from his sacred pouch, allowing Shirley to taste them one by one.
After chewing a few pieces of soybeans, Shirley, who was originally indifferent towards the food, became very excited. Her eyes gleamed with light.
‘What’s this? It’s so delicious!!’
The corn was exceptionally sweet and crispy, and the little tomatoes that followed impacted Shirley’s taste buds. The sourness caused her to squeal with joy.
“You agree, right?”
Facing the temptation of delicious food, Shirley had no resistance at all and was immediately bribed by Bai Luo, deciding to follow this new master who had delicious food.
“Good girl, you have good taste.”
“Follow me and you will have endless delicacies.”
Bai Luo’s words were very novel to Shirley, but she inexplicably liked it.
Shirley is very smart and energetic. She has intelligence far beyond that of ordinary horses. Although she is far from human intellect, she has the basic cognitive ability of a 7-year-old.
She can’t speak, but she can understand human language and grasp the meaning of most sentences.
The owner of the horse farm hadn’t paid much attention to Shirley, hence he didn’t notice her peculiarity. He only treated her as an ordinary white horse for breeding and selling.
In fact, a group of horse dealers came to the town today to buy 20 horses.
Shirley was selected, but she broke free of bondage and escaped.
“When I first saw you, I knew you were not an ordinary horse.” Bai Luo said.
“You don’t want to be mounted by others, so you can rest assured that I will never ride you without your consent.”
Bai Luo naturally didn’t know Shirley’s experience.
But he can infer based on existing information! Who hasn’t seen a few episodes of Conan, right?
The text on the black book clearly informed Bai Luo that Shirley doesn’t like being ridden, and to get her approval, he has to do something ridiculous and unprecedented!
For example, carry her home!
This is the first time someone said this to Shirley.
Shirley’s eyes shone. Her impression of Bai Luo quickly changed. In addition to being her savior, Bai Luo gained another identity, a confidant!
This human understands her!
“Is this position comfortable?”
Bai Luo didn’t regard Shirley as an ordinary horse. She is a miracle. Although he doesn’t know what kind of miracle she is, she’s definitely not a mortal creature.
Bai Luo’s shoulders are not very broad, so he could try his best to maintain his balance, so as not to make Shirley on his back feel uncomfortable.
“As long as you’re comfortable, let’s go.”
Bai Luo strode forward, not fast, but not slow.
He walked very steadily, whether it was uphill or downhill, he walked on it like it was flat ground.
This was the sound of Bai Luo’s breathing after he got over the first mountain.
This is Bai Luo’s breathing after he crossed the second mountain.
This is the sound of Bai Luo’s breathing after he crossed the third mountain.
This is the sound of Bai Luo’s breathing after he crossed the fourth mountain.
Uh, why can’t we hear the sound of Bai Luo breathing?
“I can’t, I really can’t!”
Bai Luo was lying on the ground by a mountain stream, his chest was rising and falling, his mouth was filled with the taste of blood.
Even with Bai Luo’s physical fitness, carrying a half-ton horse and climbing over four giant mountains is his limit.
Aside, Shirley sat down on her knees.
She looked at Bai Luo who was lying on his back in horror as if she was looking at a monster.
It’s not that Shirley felt that her physical strength is not as good as Bai Luo, but Bai Luo is a human being, she is a horse. The two are completely different creatures!
It’s just like Shirley carrying 5 horses and climbing over 4 mountains. She can’t do such a ridiculous task!
That’s without mentioning that Bai Luo and her were attacked by many beasts midway.
Every time they encounter danger, Bai Luo will quickly put her down, then fight against the wild beasts and monsters while protecting her.
Many of these beasts and monsters were terrifying creatures that Shirley had never seen before, but Shirley could sense their horror just from their aura. She felt that any one of them could easily devour her!
Although Shirley is a little filly, she is also quite arrogant internally.
All horses have different natures, the more outstanding their ability is, the fierier they are.
However, Bai Luo has really conquered Shirley.
Even if she prides herself to be different from and smarter than all horses, she was completely overwhelmed. She submits to this human from the depths of her heart.
If her owner is Bai Luo, she can accept it. Shirley will not feel humiliated at being ridden by such a strong man, but rather proud!
Shirley neighed at Bai Luo.
Bai Luo’s life-saving grace, coupled with his terrifying power and understanding caused Shirley to recognize him as her master, and start to get worried about his body.
Bai Luo learned about the behavior of horses from uncle Saros, so he knew that the white filly is expressing her concern for him,
“We probably need to cross sixteen more mountains to reach my home.”
“It’s not a big deal. It’s just a mere 16 mountains. We should be able to reach home in about 4 days.”
Shirley was completely stunned.
‘The human in front of me… No, what is going on with my new master?’
‘Is there something wrong with his brain?’
Shirley felt that she should endure the pain, stand up, and tell him that she can walk.
Bai Luo was shocked, he quickly stopped Shirley from getting up, then looked at the text on the black book.
“I’ll carry you! Why are you standing up, I’ll carry you!!”
Bai Luo didn’t know how the completion of this trial was judged. If Shirley takes a step and the trial is directly considered as failed, Bai Luo is afraid that he would directly cry.
Shirley had no choice but to pacify Bai Luo and lay back on the ground.
She might have moved a little, but the task on the black book didn’t change. Bai Luo breathed a sigh of relief and decided to continue.
