This is a Miracle - Chapter 58
“Sacrifice ceremony? These two words have a lot of meanings.”
The old man took a deep whiff from his smoke pipe, “Tell me about it.”
Saros and Issafeiya had long guessed that Bai Luo had the means to find miracles, but they would not ask. On the contrary, they will try their best to hide this secret.
Even they would forget about this and avoid talking about it. Unless Bai Luo personally talks to them about this.
“I must offer an object that it likes as a sacrifice. However, the problem is that I don’t know what it likes.”
After listening to Bai Luo’s remarks, the old man silently pondered, “Lost Kingdom?”
“This is in the blind spot of my knowledge.”
Although the old man is extremely knowledgeable, even he can’t help find something that they have zero clue about,
“Most of Arden’s ancient books were lost during the uprising of the Iron Eagle King. I don’t know much about the history and legends of the twenty-eight miracle factions.”
“Moreover, the Lost Kingdom is one of the most mysterious camps.”
The old man said, “I’ve been asking for information from brother Andrew these days. However, he only knows a bit about the Northern Earth. The Lost Kingdom…”
“Uncle, then what do you think we should use as a tribute?”
“It shouldn’t be a living sacrifice.”
The old man is sure that it’s definitely not this,
“The Lost Kingdom is one of the most civilized, orderly, and humane factions among the 28 factions. If it is a miracle of this faction, it will definitely not be evil or chaos inclined.”
“If the miracle you told me about this time was from the ‘Fools Feast’..,” the old man said in a deep voice, “Then I have to tell you to be careful.”
“Is there something wrong with this faction?”
Bai Luo will get more miracles in the future; There’s a certain possibility that he will come across miracles from the ‘Fools Feast’.
“The Fools Feast is a rather bizarre miracle faction, but it’s the master who controls the miracle after all. There is no absolute evil miracle power in this world.”
The old man said, “So even if you encounter it in the future, I just want you to be careful, not to give up on it.”
“After all, miracles can’t hurt their master, but that might not be the case for other beings. Not all miracles are as gentle as Shirley and Lilith.”
“Don’t worry, I will be cautious.”
Bai Luo never disregarded the old man’s advice, he memorized it by heart.
“As for this sacrifice ceremony…”
The old man thought for a moment and said, “Is it time-pressed?”
“It shouldn’t be urgent.”
According to the Black Book’s words, the miracle on page 5 actually belongs to Bai Luo. Except for him, no one else can awaken its miracle power.
“That’s good, in that case, we have the time to investigate first.”
“But we still give it a shot, we might get lucky and stumble right on it,” the old man said. “Right, pour out some rare crops from your sacred pouch tomorrow.”
Bai Luo nodded repeatedly.
“Things that have never appeared in this world must be precious!”
Even if the old man had to guess, he would make the guess with the highest probability.
“Where is the place of sacrifice?”
“Let’s just conduct it on the cliff, pulling everyone together to pay their respect.”
It is unlikely that the sacrifice ceremony requires only one person, hence the old man felt that it was more appropriate to conduct it with a large number of people.
“It’s not that close.”
For the sake of that miracle, Bai Luo had to trouble everyone.
For a better future for Arden, a slight delay in their projects and a small loss of time is totally worth it.
What’s more, with Lilith around, the Ardennes’ production force is just a bonus.
Their only job was to chop down trees every day, but Bai Luo will tell Shirley to help. Hence not working for one or two days is okay.
Suddenly, Inya ran over, “Brother, brother, hear me out, I won! They can’t out-drink me!”
“I, Inya, am indeed the strongest!”
“In terms of drinking…”Inya said arrogantly, “Tch, I’m invincible!”
However, after a while, Inya didn’t hear Bai Luo and Saros’s response. Even Issafeiya covered her forehead, shook her head, and sighed.
“You guys, what happened to you? I won… I won! Aren’t you guys happy?”
She raised her head and found that Bai Luo was looking at her somewhat speechlessly. As for the old man, he was silently smoking from his pipe.
“Inya, you are really amazing, As expected of Arden’s future general.”
“Girl, from now on, the job of blocking drinks for me will be left to you in the future.”
“Hee hee! Leave this task to this great general!”
Inya was extremely happy at being praised by her father and brother,
“Ah! I forgot to go to the toilet, big brother and daddy, I’ll go first, bye.”
Looking at Inya who ran away clutching her stomach, Bai Luo and the old man looked at each other.
Inya lives in her world, always so happy and free-spirited, no matter the time or place, she can always find things that make her happy.
“Inya is fine like this, don’t you think so, old man?”
The old man nodded, and Bai Luo smiled, it was precisely because they had a simple child, like Inya that he wanted to do his best to guard this beautiful moment.
“Whether it’s successful or not, let’s try it first.”
Inya’s interruption broke his train of thoughts, but it also diluted Bai Luo’s concern for the miracle.
‘If I’m lucky, I will get it, if not, then that’s just fate.’
Bai Luo felt that he was too greedy. He already had three miracles and has barely developed any of them.
The miracle power of the tree elves’ descendants has soared to 80% directly because of this war. They’re extremely close to awakening.
However, how long has it been since he obtained his miracles? About two months overall.
From a simple village to having a budding kingdom with more than three miracles in a short span of two months… This is already beyond the imagination of mortals, Bai Luo felt that he was indeed greedy for desiring more.
“If we keep recklessly running forward, we are likely to trip. The best action would be to take slow and steady steps.”
The next day, Bai Luo took the lead and asked Lilith to conjure a stone incense table on the east coast of Arden Island.
Bai Luo has a certain adherence to the concept of sacrifice. He doesn’t sacrifice to gods, nor does he believe in gods.
Bai Luo held the belief that man is destined to conquer the heavens. Praying and worshiping should be towards their parents and ancestors.
Therefore, in this worship ceremony, Bai Luo chose to implement the ceremony of worshiping ancestors from his past life, and have the old man preside over it.
In terms of offerings, he placed many grains and fruits that had never appeared in this world, as well as the more common livestock. Anyway, there is everything, including meat and vegetables.
In the culture of the Ardennes, there is no belief in gods, but they do annual ancestors’ rituals.
Bai Luo chose to use stone as the incense table for this reason. It incorporates the custom of the Ardennes to conduct the sacrifice ceremony with wood and stone.
Bai Luo stood at the forefront, leading everyone to bow their heads,
“Close your eyes, and pray in your heart that this year will be a year of good fortune, peace, and prosperity for our nation .”
The Ardennes don’t have any kneeling ritual or ceremony for anyone but their king. Because in the world of miracles, kings are greater than gods!
Hence, Bai Luo only asked them to lower their heads and bow to worship, and thus, the worship ceremony was over.
After everything ended, Bai Luo looked at the black book.
[Your style of sacrifice is neither humble nor arrogant, it likes it very much]
Bai Luo was overjoyed at the sight of this paragraph, but the following one caused him to sigh.
[However, it is not happy with your tribute, hence it won’t accept any more sacrifices for the next month]
Bai Luo originally thought that this miracle is unattainable in the end, but upon opening the fifth page, the miracle was still recorded on it,
“It’s just a cooldown, not a complete failure?”
‘If that’s the case, then it’s okay.’ Bai Luo was relieved.
Although he didn’t know what the miracle on the fifth page was, Bai Luo had a vague feeling that the ‘it’ that the black book referred to in so much respect is extraordinary. It’s probably the most powerful miracle that he had encountered so far.
