This is a Miracle - Chapter 37
Bai Luo doesn’t know how long it will take for the birth of miracle children.
In this regard, it not only depends on the miracle but also the talent of the concerned people.
They would have to wait until Radish’s child is born before they could learn more about Shirley’s miracle children. In Lilith’s case, it depends on exactly how Ersa will change.
“There’s no rush, take your time.”
Fortunately, miracle gifts are almost always positive. Even if a problem occurs, Bai Luo can immediately withdraw their power and restore them to their original state, hence there shouldn’t be a potential safety hazard.
The wind temperature gradually decreased and the sky slowly turned gloomy. The oppressive atmosphere caused Saros’s expression to change,
“This wind… Something is wrong!”
“Everyone, go to the cabin!”
Bai Luo hurried out of the cabin on the second floor. He quickly ran down the stairs and into the main deck,
“A storm is coming, all of you go inside!”
“Lingling, Yiyi, Erer, take the mice and go inside!”
Bai Luo quickly walked past the railing. The three kittens stood on their hind legs, saluted him, then quickly picked up the mice and ran towards the cabin.
“Fiora, call all the white eagles back.”
Fiora loudly whistled, and the white eagles flew back immediately. They entered the cabin and landed on top of some ropes. They tilted their heads and watched the Ardennes running around.
“Lilith, quickly lower the sails!”
Lilith’s fairy magic enveloped the three ships. All the sails were automatically lowered and stowed away.
By the time they completed their preparations, the rain started pouring down instantly.
The shimmering light and bright sky have been completely covered, only countless ominous dark clouds surged above everyone’s head.
“Quick, all of you go to the cabin!”
There are countless dangers at sea, and the greatest of them all is none other than its wrath.
Bai Luo asked uncle Saros to take control of the big ship. Everyone is here. This is a matter that concerns the life and death of all Ardennes, even elder sister Issafeiya dare not take this burden.
Only Saros, a legendary figure who has gone through untold hardships but still survived to this day, can handle it.
Bai Luo told Lilith to connect the three ships together.
With a wave of her hand, countless vines grew from both sides of the big ship, extending towards the two smaller ships and connecting them together into a single giant structure.
Feeling something from the sea, uncle Saros’s expression changed. He quickly looked at the side of the ship, where Mia and her brother Schuster were still running towards the cabin.
Almost at the moment when the old man shouted, a dark figure suddenly leaped from the surface of the sea. It was a ferocious-looking monster with a bloody mouth, pouncing on the two children.
An iron spear broke through the air, tearing the rain curtain and drilling into the monstrous fish’s mouth, then bursting out from the back of its head. The huge tremendous force created as a result of the impact actually tore the fish’s body into pieces.
“Ta! Ta! Ta!”
Issafeiya darted towards the two children at an alarming speed,
“Don’t be afraid, get in.”
Just as Issafeiya finished speaking, another crab-like sea monster leaped from the water. Issafeiya didn’t even glance at it, her knight sword tore apart the rain and slashed the crab-like creature, leaving behind countless silver trails. In the next moment, the crab’s claws and legs detached from its body, falling back into the sea.
Issafeiya’s elegant figure left Mia and Schuster stunned.
“Big sister Feiya, be careful!”
Fortunately, the two did not hesitate anymore. They jumped into the cabin and were caught by the Ardennes who had been waiting for a long time.
“Have they all entered the cabin?”
Due to the harsh storm and the almost endless rain droplets, the old man found it difficult to keep his eyes open.
“They’re all inside”
At this time, Lilith had connected the three ships together, reducing the number of people needed to steer the ship from three to one – Uncle Saros.
“Leave the matter of steering the ship to me. You find a way to deal with sea beasts and monsters.”
In this darkness-filled world, just like the end of the world, the old man has to find a safe path for everyone.
Although they can simply hide in the cabin like everyone else and wait for the storm to pass, the old man is very experienced, and can always make the best choice for all kinds of situations.
As Bai Luo’s voice sounded, Pegasus Shirley rose into the air. She fluttered her crystal-like wings and sliced many sea monsters that jumped out of the water into pieces.
The record of elder sister Issafeiya wasn’t far behind. Her strength and skill can be considered the best in Arden.
And that’s not all…
A giant serpent-like monster suddenly leaped out of the sea, but before it could pounce on the ship, an intangible force enveloped it.
Along with a smoke explosion, a terrified snow-white sheep swayed its limbs with a panicked expression, falling back into the sea with a flabbergasted expression.
The little fairy exuded a colorful light. Even the boundless darkness couldn’t obscure her mysterious and fantastical nature.
As Lilith waved her wand, all the sea beasts and monsters were forcibly turned into various small animals. Creatures who don’t possess miracle power don’t have the slightest possibility of resisting fairy magic.
Once they’ve been turned into sheep and fall into the sea, they would really drown. Lilith has basically done the impossible and drowned fish.
Bai Luo reckoned that these sea monsters would have never imagined that they would drown in their familiar sea one day.
A giant lightning bolt suddenly fell from the sky, causing Lilith, who was casting a spell, to subconsciously raise her wand.
An invisible barrier blocked the lightning bolt, but all three ships were shaking madly due to the aftermath.
Lilith’s expression changed slightly. She tried to use fairy magic to resist the might of the storm and lightning, but with little success.
“Master, my power isn’t suitable to resist natural disasters.”
Obviously, this was a field that Lilith’s fairy magic didn’t excel at.
“Leave it to me!”
Shirley’s figure appeared in Bai Luo’s mind, the pure white Pegasus landed by Bai Luo’s side. Her holy aura seemed to suppress the mighty thunder in the sky.
Shirley waved her wings, easily slapping a lightning bolt that was about to fall on the mast more than ten meters away, completely dissipating it.
[She will be your beacon, allowing you to overcome all storms]
Bai Luo suddenly remembered the black book’s description of Pegasus Shirley
“The dominator of storms, the beacon of the sea.”
Bai Luo only said two sentences and the old man immediately understood what he meant,
“Shirley is a miracle that can restrain natural disasters!”
Accompanied by the neighing of the Pegasus, a dazzling white light blossomed from Shirley. Bai Luo mounted Shirley and drove her straight into the sky.
Thunder rolled through the clouds, storms swept through the heavens and the earth, and huge waves tore the sea. The pitch dark sea seemed to hide countless monsters, all staring at the three ships greedily, ready to pounce at any moment.
“A mere storm can’t stop me!”
Shirley neighed, endless white light spilled down from her wings to the side.
Under the gaze of uncle Saros and Issafeiya, the light on Shirley’s body coalesced into a huge curtain, sheltering the Ardennes’ ships in this dark world and breaking through any obstacle!
“This is the power of miracles…”
The old man clearly felt that the obstruction of the storm became much smaller.
Not only that, but even the turbulent sea currents started to become docile under Shirley’s miracle power.
“Shirley, follow your senses and take us to that place!”
It was pitch black around. They had no way to determine their direction for the moment, and the giant waves constantly crashed down, as if to break their ships.
Bai Luo didn’t try to control Shirley but allowed her to fly freely according to her instincts.
Shirley naturally didn’t know the location of that island, but as long as Bai Luo wishes to go to a certain place, Shirley would naturally take him there.
This is the miracle power of Pegasus—Omni-navigation.
Thunder and lightning still coursed through the sky, and the storm continued to grow bigger, but these things couldn’t stop the Ardennes’ journey, let alone Shirley.
She sheltered the entire team with her strength.
It was the first time that Bai Luo had truly witnessed Shirley’s mighty miracle power. It’s incredible.
Gradually, the torrential rain began to decrease, the overwhelming winds also dissipated, and sunlight sprinkled on the earth again.
Feeling the renewed serenity, the Ardennes opened the cover of the cabin and climbed out, only to see the dreamy scenery that appeared after such an intense storm.
At this moment, the Ardennes knew that they were safe.
Bai Luo was sitting on Shirley’s back. He opened his arms and basked in the warm sunlight,
“We broke through the storm, Shirley!”
“We defeated it, master!”
Shirley was also very excited. This is the first time she has shown her true strength in her domain. The huge sense of achievement made her unbearably happy.
“What an amazing power.”
Standing on the deck, uncle Saros shook his wet white hair. He gently moved the ship’s wheel, lost in thought.
“So this is a miracle…”
Issafeiya looked at Shirley, then at Lilith. The presence of miracles has allowed the Ardennes to defeat nature. This is an unprecedented victory!
“The wind has stopped.”
“The storm is over.”
Just as the Ardennes were celebrating, Fiora pointed to the distance and shouted,
“Look there! Look over there!”
At the end of the horizon, a small black spot fell into the sight of the Ardennes.
“We’re here, we have arrived!”
The Ardennes all came to the deck. The children and women held onto the railings. The more daring Noel, Abaddon, and others jumped onto the trees connecting the other ships and onto the ships themselves.
Even Inya and Jerah followed suit.
“Found it, we found it, there it is!”
Noel was ecstatic, and Inya and Jerah were also pleasantly surprised.
Bai Luo flew around the ships with Shirley, making sure that there were no hidden dangers. Only then did he return to the deck of the big ship.
Bai Luo fell from the sky onto the old man’s side. Saros’s face was full of joy. He took out the monocular,
“I remember that the island has a high section. Hm… That’s indeed the one. Shirley really brought us to our destination.”
The material of the monocular was made by Lilith using magic, but the assembly was done by uncle Saros.
Uncle Saros’s handicraft knows no bounds. As expected of him.
“Let me see.”
Bai Luo took over the monocular, and sure enough, he saw a part of the outline of the island,
“What’s that tip?”
“That’s a mountain.”
This island is very peculiar. It is like a bamboo hat. Its center is raised, and its sides are inclined. The further they get from the center, the lower the terrains get.
The entire island is roughly around 2,700 square kilometers, equivalent to a circle with a radius of about 30 kilometers.
Of course, the shape of the island is not exactly circular. It’s just an analogy to describe its size.
“Three sides of the island are cliffs. The only beach on this island is in the west. It’s a suitable location for building a port, which will be convenient for fishing and access.”
“The environment of the island is different from the one we’re used to, the temperature is a bit high, and it isn’t very cold in winter,”
Uncle Saros said,
“Behind the beach is a large forest, with very fertile soil. We can open up land and raise livestock there as a source of meat.”
“To the north is a relatively raised land, with many rocky hills. We can mine those rocks and use them to build houses.”
“If we dig deep enough, we can find ore,” Uncle Saros continued to unfold the environment of the island,
“In the past, the girls’ father and I dug down quite deep and found a lot of iron and copper ore.”
Therefore, resourse-wide, that island is enough to meet all the needs of the Ardennes.
“Then there’s the east and the south, where the rivers and valleys are connected with the plains. The environment is beautiful and there are many birds and flowers. Especially the plains, which can be used as farming land.”
“If we develop these two areas properly, we can get at least 400,000 acres of farmland.”
This number is really not small.
With Arden’s current crops, one acre of land is basically enough to feed a family of three for a year. Therefore, even if they estimate conservatively, this island is more than enough to provide for the food needs of 500,000 people.
That’s without mentioning that they are going to build a port, through which they can get a lot of food from the sea, and how many people are in Arden?
A mere 80!
Bai Luo doesn’t dare to boast that their island can provide for 500,000 people, but before the population exceeds 200,000, Arden will definitely not suffer from a food shortage problem.
“As for the highest mountain,” The old man pointed at the peak in the center of the island and said,
“My idea is to directly transform the top and build a city that can accommodate tens of thousands of people.”
As a result, the entire island would be used by the Ardennes.
2,700 square kilometers of land is more than enough for 500,000 or 600,000 people to live.
Of course, with such a large number of people, they will face the problem of food shortage. Arden wouldn’t be able to feed so many people, and if they forcibly try to do so, the order of their kingdom might collapse under pressure.
