This is a Miracle - Chapter 51
A pirate ship was moving amidst the smoke. Behind them were five or six burning merchant ships, as well as the wreckage of the other ships floating on the sea.
This is a convoy, full of specialties from the Western Mountain Kingdom.
Unfortunately, they met Schatt, one of the six most vicious captains under the pirate king Morgan.
“Look at this thing, a snow-white beast’s teeth, this one alone is worth at least 8 large gold coins (800,000 yuan) .”
“And this is a very scarce fruit from the Iron Eagle Kingdom.”
Taking a bite, Schatt’s mouth was full of juice, “This is something that only those powerful nobles can eat on the main continent.”
Schatt casually tossed the fruit to his subordinates, who didn’t mind that it was half-eaten at all, scrambling to get a bite,
“Little ones, do you see what happens to those that oppose us?!”
Following Schatt’s fingers, many corpses could be seen hanging on the sail, while the wailing and whimpering of women could be faintly heard in the cabin.
“At this time, challenging me is not different from looking for death!”
Schatt raised his boots, grinding against the edge of the railing while taking big gulps of alcohol at the same time. He wasn’t in a good mood, hence he destroyed that convoy to vent,
“What the hell is the boss thinking? He even told me to loot 30,000 gold coins and bring them to him. .”
The boss that Schatt was talking about isn’t Morgan, the pirate king, but Morgan’s adopted son, Sigrian.
The six great pirate groups aren’t composed of miracle children. In fact, they don’t even have a trace of miracle power.
Nowadays, all great nations stipulate that the power of miracles cannot appear on the battlefield at will. Therefore, the pirate groups sent to loot are mostly composed of mortals without miracle power.
This rule has been sustained for at least fifty years, hence most young people don’t even know about the concept of miracles.
It’s just that Schatt and Sigrian are sworn brothers. Therefore, he heard about miracles from his boss.
“30,000 gold coins, that’s a ton of gold!” 
“I heard that it’s for the old man’s birthday.”
The first mate is trusted by Schatt, hence he also knows secrets that ordinary people have never heard of, including miracles, and the mysterious fables of the pirate king Morgan.
“Boss, shall we continue to loot other ships?”
“Of course!” Schatt said,
“However, we first have to change locations. This place has almost been dried up by us…”
If you overfish in the same spot, sooner or later, the pond will be drained of fish.
Therefore, Schatt acted very intelligently. He proposed toll fees. As long as convoys give him 15% of the items they are transporting, he would allow them to pass.
If it was general grain, cloth, wood, or ore, giving 15% of it away isn’t a big deal.
However, these five ships were carrying smuggled precious items. The food on the surface is just a disguise. The treasures hidden below are the real goods.
With sharp eyes, Schatt directly saw through the convoy’s tricks.
Therefore, he immediately ordered them to hand over the treasures, as well as those precious spices and fruits.
The other party refused, so naturally, Schatt wouldn’t treat them kindly. He promptly decided to slaughter them to establish his authority,
“Not taking the great Schatt’s words seriously is simply looking for death!”
Schatt is just a mortal, but once someone knows about the existence of miracles, no one wouldn’t desire that kind of magical power.
He is one of the six great captains, but he used a large number of favors and benefits to exchange this position from his good brother Sigrian.
To maintain this identity and rights, Schatt has to work hard for Sigrian.
“There’s quite some time left, let’s go back first and get some rest.”
Morgan is acclaimed as the Pirate King of the East Sea, and he has several nominal sons and daughters under his command. Sigrian is his adopted son, the fourth in line. Therefore, he is respectfully addressed by Schatt and other people as the fourth older brother, or the fourth master.
After reaching such a position, glory and wealth are all there for Schatt to enjoy, and when one has good things, they will think about how to keep them. Schatt has extreme avarice for power because he knows what Morgan’s legendary influence is centered on.
Others call it the power of God, but Schatt knows that Morgan’s power came from some kind of miracle.
It wasn’t that Schatt is disloyal to Morgan, it’s just that his talents are too mediocre to quickly adapt to Morgan’s miracle powers.
Morgan’s adopted children are all miracle children who could adapt to his miracle power. Moreover, they all regularly travel around to seek out geniuses for their old man.
Schatt is valued by Sigrian and now is the final inspection period.
Once he proves his loyalty, Sigrian will take him to Morgan, the legendary pirate who had ruled the Eastern Seas for many years.
“I must get that mighty power!”
Schatt would never forget the power of Sigrian, a power that is far beyond that of mortals, a power that could seemingly crush everything.
‘Without the power of miracles, you can’t get in touch with the power center of the miracle masters. What’s the difference between that and those wealthy merchants and high-ranking officials in the Iron Eagle Kingdom?’
What’s more, Schatt is already forty-five years old. How many more years can he live without the power of miracles?
Although the power of miracles cannot make people immortal. At least, he can live for a few more years.
If he is fortunate enough to get the water of the Fountain of Youth from the hands of the old man, he can regain his youth and live forever!
“No amount of wealth can buy lifespan.”
Schatt had figured it out. He made up his mind to follow his sworn brother Sigrian and make the legendary pirate, Morgan, see his sincerity and loyalty.
Once the power of miracles recognizes him as a worthy miracle child… Morgan will also go to the Marquise of Everspring in the Iron Eagle Kingdom to ask for more water of eternal youth for his subordinates.
On the other hand, who would allow an untalented and worthless person with a desire to live forever to occupy an important position.
“I must gain their trust, get the power of miracles, and then water from the Fountain of Youth.”
“Return to the ship!”
Schatt shouted to his subordinates. All he could think of was his bright future of eternal youth and immortality after getting the power of miracles.
At this time, Bai Luo didn’t know of Schatt’s imminent return.
However, with the white eagles tightly surveilling the water around the island, he wasn’t worried about any surprise attack.
“What bullcrap Boss! I am now the Marshal of the Marine Headquarters, call me Marshal Silver!”
A handsome silver eagle was standing gallantly and proudly on a cliff, 24 seagulls stood behind it. They stood in two rows, saluting methodically, forming a rather uncanny scenery.
In front of the 24 seagulls were the three generals of Arden’s Marine headquarters——While Eagle Sine, While Eagle Cain, White Eagle Bane.
The seagulls said in unison, While Eagle Silver nodded with satisfaction,
“Excellent, now go gather more companions, I have a hunch… A storm that will sweep the whole world is brewing. That man, he is coming…” (TL: Did you get the reference?)
The seagulls showed a ‘serious’ expression, but the faces of the three white eagles changed, “Bo, bo, boss!”
“Who are you calling boss?! I’m the Marine Headquarters’ Marshal now…”
While Eagle Silver suddenly sensed a special aura. That aura is so powerful, so noble, so dignified!
he hurriedly turned its head, and in the next moment, the so-called Marshal of the marine headquarters was scared 𝔰𝔥𝔦𝔱𝔩𝔢𝔰𝔰.
He saw Bai Luo riding on Shirley’s back, standing behind him.
In the face of the glorious miracle master, how could a small miracle derivative like it resist?
Especially Shirley. In the eyes of White Eagle Silver and other small animals, that seemingly infinite miracle power was just like the sun in the dark night, enough to light up the world with its dazzling and fiery light.
“This little one is just joking, I have been patrolling well, never neglecting my duties. Your Majesty, please spare my life~~~”
The White Eagle Silver was about to cry with fear. In front of miracle derivatives like them, miracle masters are simply supreme gods!
Not to mention disobeying the other party’s will, Bai Luo could scare him unconscious with just one glance.
“Good acting, you looked just like the real thing.”
Bai Luo didn’t blame the four little guys of the White Eagle family. After receiving Lilith’s miracle power over a long period, they turned from simple intelligent animals into miracle derivatives.
Miracle derivatives are a broad category, referring to a state that is a precursor to miracle children.
In fact, the little witches, the weapons forged from miracle resources, and the four white eagles all are at this stage.
If the original miracle is the power source, then the miracle children are the strong ones favored by its miracle power.
They are certainly far weaker than the original miracle, but the difference between them and mortals is like the difference between heaven and earth, immeasurable.
“We don’t dare, we really don’t dare!”
Only Bai Luo, Shirley, and Lilith could understand the language of the white eagles. Others can only hear the chirping of birds.
They have to truly become miracle children in order to gain the ability of speech, a step beyond possessing human intelligence.
However, this requires a lot of time. According to Lilith, they would need at least 7 or 8 months to just reach the threshold of miracle children.
“Don’t cry, don’t cry,”
Listening to the sad cries of the white eagle, Silver, Bai Luo was helpless. If someone else were to hear these cries, they might think that it’s a rooster, not a majestic white eagle.
“You’re just playing a game, why should I get angry?”
“How many people are you in charge of?”
Bai Luo looked at the prostrating, shivering seagulls,
“You don’t even have 30 men under your wings. It seems that you are a bit unworthy of the title Marshal.”
“This little one is arrogant, I know that I’m guilty.”
“You’re a second Lieutenant from now on.”
White Eagle, Silver, didn’t expect that Bai Luo would give him an official rank,
“You, are you serious?”
Bai Luo smiled and said, “Second Lieutenant White Eagle Silver of the Arden Marine Headquarters, heed my command!”
Due to the severe excitement, White Eagle Silver couldn’t help but release a cry similar to that of a duck.
“Bring the three white eagle staff sergeants, and take good care of Arden’s coast border. If you allow an enemy to sneak into the island..,”
Bai Luo couldn’t directly roast them, after all, they are companions who he had watched over since their infancy.
“You’ll have to eat worms for 7 days!”
The other three white eagles raised their heads in horror, shivering.
White Eagle Sine: ‘We, the majestic kings of birds, eating worms?’
Bai Ying Cain: ‘As expected of the master who dominates Arden, to think of such a vicious punishment!!’
White Eagle Bane: ‘So scary!!!’
“Okay, you guys play, I still have to check the surrounding environment.”
After Bai Luo finished speaking, he rode Shirley and left, leaving only four white eagles and 24 seagulls, looking at each other.
Gradually, the white eagle Silver started trembling. He suddenly jerked his head up.
“Gah! Gagagag gah!!”
White Eagle Silver held his head high and quacked uncontrollably with excitement, causing him to almost fall off the cliff. Fortunately, his younger siblings helped him in time, but this did not dampen his excitement.
“Boss, why are you so happy despite being downgraded?”
White Eagle Silver slapped his young brother to the grass and majestically said,
“No matter how high a rank I claimed to own, it’s still false, but this position is real, it’s real! Gah! Gah! Gah!!!”
“Wait, His Majesty said the ‘white eagle three staff sergeants’, so… Have I become staff sergeant?”
Happy, the three eagle brothers also quacked while dancing around.
“What about us? What is our rank?!”
“Your ranks my arse!”
White Eagle Silver scolded these recruits angrily,
“Go and patrol for this second lieutenant. If you miss a fly, you’ll eat worms for the rest of your lives!”
The 24 Seagulls were frightened.
How dare they disobey the tyrant white eagle Silver, they hurriedly scattered and started to patrol.
They have become ‘conscious’, naturally, they don’t need to hunt for food anymore. There are specialized Ardennes who will use fish and meat to feed them in specially established places.
Therefore, the white eagle family’s job is to take their little seagull cadets to patrol around the island, supervising the area around Arden Island to guard against foreign enemies.
This is not an easy task.
“With me here…”
As White Eagle Silver soared in the sky, he shifted from his previous amusing persona. His eyes were sharp and majestic,
“Enemies can’t even dream of breaking in!”
: You can refer to chapter 14 if you forgot how the monetary system of this novel works.
Anyway, here’s a little recap: 1 large gold coin = 10 small gold coins = 100 large silver coins = 1,000 small silver coins = 10,000 large copper coins = 100,000 small copper coins.
1 small copper coin has the same purchasing power as 1 yuan(0.16 USD), so 1 large gold coin= 100,000 yuan(15,600 USD).
: As long as large gold coins and large silver coins aren’t specifically mentioned, the default is the small ones.
: For the readers’ convenience, the data and measurements that are used by other characters will be directly translated into Arden’s unified measurement system to make it easier to read
