This is a Miracle - Chapter 18
Another week or so passed, Bai Luo took good care of Shirley, and at the same time, he continued pouring out various types of grain to increase the reserves of the Ardennes.
There are eighty people in Arden village, and even children and old people are very powerful.
Bai Luo intends to reserve 2 tons of food first.
After that, Bai Luo will not release any more grain but will allow the sacred pouch to accumulate more food.
If nothing happens, they will soon start their migration plan.
At that time, too many supplies will reduce the team’s matching speed.
It would be better to pour out food when they want to eat.
The reason why they have to prepare a lot of food is in case they need to trade with outsiders.
If people see that they had nothing with them, but suddenly, they pull thousands of kg of food from god knows where. No matter how stupid these guys are, they will definitely notice that something is wrong.
Whether it was uncle Saros or elder sister Issafeiya, they all judged unanimously that now is not the time for Bai Luo to expose his miracle.
Only when the number of Ardennes increases, and they have a big enough army, can they have the chance to show their miracle.
With the natural warrior physique of the Ardennes, they can create a foothold overseas.
Not all Ardennes are monstrously strong.
Only the clan members who have an extremely pure bloodline, much closer to that of their ancestors, such as Bai Luo and Issafeiya, have terrifying strength.
Sometimes, Ardennes with weak physiques, such as Schuster, appear.
However, the Ardennes are Ardennes after all.
Even if the parents are weak, that doesn’t mean that their children will also be weak. The best example is Bai Luo.
Bai Luo’s father and Saros are close friends, but his physical fitness is just a little better than Schuster’s.
Therefore, if Schuster marries and has children. His heirs will become a critical combat power of the Arden clan.
[Basic Sacred Pouch]
Master: Bai Luo Arden
Type: Miracle Item
Faction: Twilight of the Gods
Ability 1: By visualizing the crops you have eaten, the sacred pouch can produce the seeds of those crops, and fruits whose size does not exceed that of your fist, but the sacred pouch can only generate 200 kilograms every day.
How to use: Visualize the food then turn the pouch upside down to pour out the seeds or fruits.
Perhaps it was because of the constant use of the Basic Sacred Pouch, Bai Luo discovered that its description on the black book has slightly changed this morning.
“It has increased!”
The first thing is the upper limit. It has changed from 100 kg to 200 kg.
Moreover, the size limit of the fruits that can be generated changed from thumb-sized to fist-sized!
Bai Luo observed his fist. It wasn’t big, but it was definitely not small. After clenching it, it’s certainly bigger than fruits such as apples, oranges, and peaches.
“Should I try it?”
Bai Luo visualized an apple. In the next moment, he felt the weight of the pouch increasing. Bai Luo turned the pouch upside down, causing many apples to cascade onto the ground.
Bai Luo originally thought that miracles would always remain the same. He never knew that their power could increase or that they could grow!
Bai Luo quickly looked for uncle Saros.
“I have indeed heard of this. Miracles are not immutable. They will grow with time and with their master’s growth.”
Uncle Saros calmly said,
“I don’t know what the limit of this pouch is, but it’s definitely very far from reaching it.”
In other words, he can only pour out small things now, but in the future, he might be able to pour out all sorts of vegetables, fruits, and even medicinal materials!
“What can it generate now? Fruits?”
Bai Luo smiled. He hoped that the sacred pouch could generate fruits from his previous life, he didn’t expect to be pleasantly surprised.
“This is an apple, this is an orange, this is a peach, and this is a tomato.”
Suddenly thinking of something, Bai Luo tried to visualize a carrot. He didn’t expect it to suddenly appear in the pouch.
“This works too?”
The size of a fist seems to refer to volume rather than shape.
Although carrots are certainly longer than his fist, their volume is actually smaller.
Moreover, important crops, such as potatoes, can now be generated.
Potatoes are rarely produced using seeds. They are mostly grown through tuberous stems and counting that, they are quite large. Fortunately, the pouch has judged that they aren’t bigger than a fist, so they can be generated too!
Sure enough, Bai Luo turned the pouch upside down, causing many potatoes to fall on the ground.
“There’s still a lot that I need to try.”
Unfortunately, the pouch failed to generate several products from Bai Luo’s fantasy.
“How does this judgment mechanism work?”
Obviously, it can generate potatoes, but not ginseng. It can generate onions, but not broccoli.
“Does it have to evolve again to generate those things?”
“How many times can miracles evolve, old man?”
“I am not sure about this.”
Uncle Saros can only say that he has a certain degree of understanding of miracles. He is certainly not omniscient.
Miracles are too mysterious. Bai Luo has to explore everything on his own. Saros can only provide the general direction.
“Now that we have plenty of supplies, it’s time to reorganize the clan.” Uncle Saros said,
“I plan to select some children from the clan and teach them fighting skills.”
“Maybe they can’t quickly gain combat power, but they should be able to protect themselves on the way at least.”
Bai Luo agreed with his uncle’s suggestion. He asked, “Is it targeted training?”
“I’ll leave the swordsmanship to Feiya.”
Issafeiya learned swordsmanship from the old man since childhood. She is not only outrageously strong, but she’s also a good teacher. She’s the perfect fit to be the Arden clan’s sword instructor.
“I’ll leave spearsmanship to Noel.”
Noel is the eldest son of the White Eagle family. He is an extremely skilled spear master, and spears are very important on the battlefield.
“I’ll leave archery to the children of the Greenwood family, Jerah and John.”
The Greenwood family has been the guardian of the forest for over a hundred years. They are extremely skilled archers. Although they’re still inferior to Bai Luo and Issafeiya, they aren’t too far apart.
“I will personally teach them ax throwing and fighting.”
There are 80 Ardennes, but there are only 10 youths.
There are five or six old people, plus some middle-aged women. Finally, there are about 40 children left.
This is the current population distribution of the entire Arden clan.
They are Bai Luo’s little brothers and sisters. Bai Luo would be heartbroken at the death of any one of them. Naturally, uncle Saros takes their development very seriously.
“Fortunately, in five or six years, the children of the village would have mostly become teenagers. At that time, we would have plenty of combat power.”
Compared to outsiders, Bai Luo naturally has much greater trust in the Ardennes.
Therefore, Bai Luo has high requirements for them. They will be managers and leaders under his helm in the future, and this requires not only strength but also a certain degree of literacy. Hence, they also need to learn to write and read, and improve their professionalism.
This is precisely the weakness of the current Arden clan.
In the past, they didn’t even have enough food. Naturally, they didn’t have the leisure to learn literacy.
“In terms of literacy, the requirements don’t have to be too high. As long as they can read and write in the Ardennes native language, that’s enough.”
Uncle Saros obviously also had his own plan. After discussing with him, Bai Luo agreed with him. They have time, they can slowly improve everything along the way.
“Okay, I’ll give this task to Brother mountain, he’s very suitable for it.”
Mountain Weng used to be an adventurer. He traveled north and south and had been to many places. He has extraordinary experience and is the only one that can be considered a civil servant under Bai Luo’s helm for the moment.
In the past, whether it was statistics, daily work and schedule preparation, as well as the distribution of food. They were almost all handled by Mountain Weng.
Saros has a lot of things to study and make. Moreover, grandpa Mountain’s love and attention towards the Arden clan is no less than that of uncle Saros.
In addition, he is already seventy years old, so he hopes that in the little time he has left, he can radiate some light and assist in the Arden clan’s growth.
“Grandpa Mountain is also getting older. Uncle, you should tell him to pay more attention to rest.”
After saying this, Bai Luo walked out of the house and walked straight to Shirley’s stable.
This was Bai Luo’s routine in the past few days, to observe Shirley’s leg injury every day, and then change her dressing regularly.
In this regard, Saros has guessed Bai Luo’s purpose for doing this.
However, he didn’t think that Shirley was a miracle.
He only thought that Bai Luo developed the habit of doing peculiar things after acquiring a miracle.
Regarding this, Saros wasn’t surprised.
Only after failing a few more times will Bai Luo understand that acquiring miracles isn’t so easy.
It’s hard to get one miracle, two miracles. . .
Even Saros has never heard of anyone that has acquired two miracles.
Shirley was extremely happy to see Bai Luo.
Because of the miracle contract, Shirley had realized the relationship between her and Bai Luo.
He is her master, the king she needs to serve, guard, and fight for.
“Oh, very well-behaved.”
Bai Luo gently stroked Shirley’s hair, then took out a fresh carrot from the basic sacred pouch, “Come on, please eat something new today.”
Shirley took a bite of the carrot. The crisp and refreshing taste caused Shirley’s eyes to shine: delicious!!
The fresh and delicate taste along with the slight sweetness caused Shirley, who had become accustomed to eating delicious food in the past few days, to squeal in delight.
“It’s delicious, right?”
Bai Luo gently patted Shirley’s head,
“Step back a little, I will fill your bag.”
With that said, Bai Luo poured ten pounds of carrots into the bag as Shirley’s snacks,
“Call me whenever you want to eat more. We might not have much here, but you will never lack food.”
Shirley has lived in this place for almost a week, and she has completely fallen in love with this place and Bai Luo.
Moreover, she felt that her injury had almost recovered.
Although Bai Luo pampers her and still allows her to slowly recover, Shirley is a horse, how could she not have the desire to run freely on the open ground?
So, Shirley neighed several times. She didn’t take the initiative to run out of the stable, because Bai Luo is her master.
Shirley couldn’t ignore Bai Luo’s opinion and run wild.
She wants to be a sensible girl, docile and gentle. Of course, only in front of her master, Bai Luo.
Apart from Bai Luo, others will only incur her wrath if they were to even touch her.
“Do you want to go out?”
Shirley was very happy to see her master understanding her.
Hence, Bai Luo took Shirley out of the stable, but he didn’t put reins on her.
Shirley is a miracle creature, not an ordinary horse. She is his companion and friend, certainly not a tool or simple animal.
If Shirley runs away and doesn’t come back, Bai Luo wouldn’t blame her. He will only consider it his fault.
He failed to complete the task of the black book, hence he lost a miracle. This has nothing to do with Shirley.
However, Shirley did not disappoint Bai Luo. She stood there, waiting for Bai Luo to ride her.
Bai Luo naturally understood Shirley’s intentions, but he remembers the words on the black book, Shirley doesn’t like being mounted.
However, that was before! There’s one person that can do that, and that is her master, Bai Luo! Shirley’s one and only master, and the only one that she will ever approve of!
If there is a person in this world that is qualified to ride her, then it’s Bai Luo’s.
Only her king can ride on her and reign her.
Bai Luo didn’t act polite. He jumped over his horse vigorously and dashingly,
“There is a forest to the south. Go east, there is a sea of flowers over there, you will surely enjoy galloping there.”
