This is a Miracle - Chapter 5
“One day, he went out and picked up an ordinary stone because he was bored.”
“Then, as we did before, he randomly discarded the stone, throwing it to a place he didn’t know of.”
However, after throwing the stone, it’s unknown if the Iron Eagle King was mentally ill. He unexpectedly felt that the stone was good-looking, so he started to look for it.
“He recovered the stone, but soon discarded it again.”
Bai Luo was a bit embarrassed while listening to the story. This is already an embarrassing past. “Then he looked for it again?”
Saros nodded, making Bai Luo a bit dazed.
This guy is too idle, right?
But thinking about it carefully, there are many such people in reality. In fact, a lot of people have done meaningless things in their childhood.
“He threw it three times, the first time in the grass, the second time in the river, and the third time in the forest,” Saros calmly said.
“Unbelievably, he found it all three times.”
He obviously threw it in a place he didn’t know about, among many other stones, but he still found it.
As a result, the miraculous power hidden in that stone was awakened.
It turned out that this stone was a miracle. It just needed specific conditions to be fulfilled for it to awaken.
This condition is exactly throwing it three times to a place you didn’t know of, then finding it again three times.
As long as these conditions are fulfilled, the stone will awaken, turning from an ordinary stone into a miracle.
In this way, the Iron Eagle King used the terrifying power of the miracle he acquired to destroy the hard work of the Arden clan, obliterating the Adren kingdom that took 600 years and dozens of generations to build.
“Did the Iron Eagle King know that that stone is a miracle?”
“No, he didn’t know.”
No one can know that something is a miracle before the miracle awakens.
After all, no one would really think that the toilet that they have been using for over 10 years is a treasure.
If someone has this kind of suspicion, then their imagination is very rich.
“Every miracle is unique. Only when you find it and then fulfill the conditions for its awakening, will it become a true miracle.”
“So,” uncle Saros looked at Bai Luo and asked,
“In your opinion, what is the probability that someone would find a miracle and awaken it?”
After listening to the story told by uncle Saros, Bai Luo thought carefully and said,
“If we take some people as an example, such as us, the probability that there is a miracle next to us is very low, but it’s not impossible.”
“Because according to what you said. A stone, a blade of grass, even the table and chair we use, might be a miracle.”
“But we don’t know whether something is a miracle. Apart from awakening it, there is no way to prove it is.”
“The first step in awakening a miracle is to ‘find’ the miracle in an inactive state. This is already a one in ten thousand probability. A very difficult thing.” Bai Luo said,
“Moreover, the hard part is to fulfill the conditions to awaken it, trying time and time again. …”
It’s almost like winning the lottery.
It’s really too difficult for a person to find a miracle by himself.
However, miracles can indeed be discovered.
There are many, many people all over the world; All kinds of events happen every day, no matter how bizarre, no matter how difficult it is to understand.
There will always be someone that just happens to find a miracle and fulfill the conditions to awaken it.
This is completely possible!
Just like in Bai Luo’s previous life, there are always one or two people that win the big lottery every year, but has he ever had such a lucky event?
Well, Bai Luo has never won the lottery, not even a consolation prize.
“To acquire miracles, neither wisdom nor talent is needed, but luck.” Saros calmly said.
“Hence, all people who acquire miracles are lucky people blessed by the heavens. “
The old man does not recognize the talent nor the skills of the Iron Eagle King, but that man was blessed by the heavens.
This is something that even old Saros has to recognize.
The Iron Eagle King can be considered the protagonist. Saros and Bai Luo are just two insignificant passers-by.
They can’t even be considered side characters!
Bai Luo was confused, he finally learned about the rules of this world.
“Then why do we work and study hard every day? What’s the use of our struggle?”
The answer is that their hard work is meaningless!
Uncle Saros is the best example.
From the perspective of a mere mortal, the old man has reached an unimaginable height. His skills are almost godly.
Unfortunately, he was not lucky enough to acquire a miracle.
So no matter how hard he worked, no matter how hard he tried, he would never be able to match miracle masters. The difference between them is insurmountable.
“The reason why I didn’t tell you about miracles before is because I didn’t want you to waste your life looking for them. There are too many people in this world that have been dreaming about miracles ever since they heard of them, desperately looking for them, doing meaningless things every day, trying everything they can, from a stone on the ground to a piece of wood from a tree.”
“In the end, they wasted their lives! Leaving them with nothing!!”
Looking for a miracle is different from chasing a dream. The latter is possibly achieved by hard work and sweat.
But the search for a miracle is really unexplainable. It’s like chasing a mirage.
There were some people like that in Bai Luo’s previous life. With the hope of winning the lottery, they did nothing every day apart from buying lottery tickets, but most of them ended with nothing.
In fact, the lottery mechanism is regular, it can be researched, increasing the possibility of winning, but a miracle…
The awakening of miracles is irregular. Each miracle has a different awakening condition.
A real needle in a haystack!
How many rocks, vegetation, and animals are there in the world?
This is not even a question of luck, but a matter of destiny, do you have that honor to be the chosen one…
This is simply a pie falling from the sky, falling on your head. Nothing more.
“Uncle, you actually don’t want to tell me this, right?”
Bai Luo understood the intention of uncle Saros.
“If one day I find a miracle, you will tell me this, but if I don’t get it in my whole life, then there would be no need to know and worry about these things.”
“So did you find it?”
“You don’t need to answer.”
Uncle Saros smiled and patted Bai Luo on the shoulder. He didn’t ask too much,
“Do what you want to do, and ask me if you have any questions. I am old now, this is the only thing I can help you with.”
Saros patted Bai Luo’s shoulders and left without waiting for him to say anything.
He is planning to go into the mountain this afternoon, continuing to look for traces of prey, then gather as many things as possible and bring them into the village.
The Arden Village is too poor.
What they need most now is food.
If there is enough food, the Ardennes have the possibility to develop, instead of being in a state of malnutrition as they are now.
“Ah, daddy! Wait for me, I want to go with you!”
Inya wiped her mouth, then picked up her bow and arrow, hurriedly following the old man to the mountains.
Without her father, Inya can hunt a hare at most.
Only by following her father can she assist him and find opportunities to hunt large prey.
“Uncle is still the same as before.”
Bai Luo looked at the backs of the two people disappearing into the distance and mused.
“He should have guessed that I had acquired some kind of miracle.”
However, just like Saros believes in Bai Luo, Bai Luo also believes in and trusts Saros.
The reason why Saros didn’t ask much is that Bai Luo was no longer a child. Since he didn’t want to talk about it, he must have his reasons.
And that’s enough.
Young people should trek on their own path. The experience of elders can only be used as a reference.
“This thing should be the miracle that the old man said.”
Bai Luo looked at the black book floating in his consciousness with scrunched brows.
“Although this is indeed a pie from the sky, what’s your use?”
