This is a Miracle - Chapter 62
“What happened to the captain?”
“I don’t know!”
On the deck, little John and Anderson whispered. The two discussed the matter of Bai Luo bringing back a dirty child for a long time.
“But the captain’s thoughts are beyond our comprehension.”
Little John seriously said, “There must be some deeper intent behind his actions.”
Anderson was unsure. Bai Luo’s actions are indeed rather a bit strange, but he is a miracle king, an extraordinary being beyond the comprehension of mortals.
“How is the child?”
In the captain’s room, Bai Luo asked Gonia, and the young girl responded,
“There’s no major problem. She’s just a bit malnourished due to long-term starvation, which resulted in slow body development. Fortunately, she hadn’t gotten sick, and hadn’t been ‘bullied’.”
The aesthetics of the people in the New World, the lands of miracles, are mainly centered on their bodies.
The little girl’s figure is so skinny that it’s considered ugly by most people. That’s why Gonia was curious why Bai Luo brought her home.
“What is she?”
“She’s too dirty, hence she was taken to the bath by big sister Emmett.”
Bai Luo nodded, but the next moment, he heard a loud noise in the cabin.
“Master! Master! Master!!”
Bai Luo hurried in, while Gonia tactfully closed the door and blocked it from the outside.
As soon as Bai Luo entered, he found that the entire bathroom was wet and smoky.
Emmett looked distressed, whilst a small figure darted into Bai Luo’s arms. It was the little girl.
Bai Luo quickly gauged the situation. He raised his head quickly, then took off his coat and put it on the little girl.
Seeing Bai Luo, the little girl’s fear instantly dissipated. She hugged Bai Luo tightly, for fear that he would suddenly disappear.
“Sister Emmett, leave her to me, you go prepare lunch.”
Emmett didn’t know what is the little girl’s relationship with Bai Luo, so she just said,
“I put the clothes there. Little Fiora’s clothes should fit her.”
Emmett left after that, leaving Bai Luo and the little girl alone in the bathroom.
Perhaps Bai Luo’s actions have garnered the little girl’s goodwill, making her heavily reliant on him, almost inseparable.
“Don’t worry, I won’t leave you behind, so let me go first, okay?”
The little girl was hugging him tightly like a koala, which was both adorable and slightly awkward.
The little girl obediently released Bai Luo, but he still closely followed behind him.
“Speaking of which, I hadn’t asked your name yet, what’s your name?”
The little girl shook her head and said, “No name.”
[Name is just a designation, but it’s also a bridge between the miracle and the master. The poor girl is afraid of becoming a rootless duckweed, so use the name you give as the chain that binds her heart]
A new task appeared, telling him to name the girl.
Bai Luo didn’t question her, but gently said, “No name, that’s very inconvenient. In that case, I’ll give you a name.”
Hearing that Bai Luo was going to give her a name, the little girl’s eyes widened. They shone with excitement and energy. She constantly bobbed her head up and down, filled with anticipation.
Bai Luo pondered for a while. He looked at the girl and noticed that she had white hair and amber eyes. A bit like reddish-orange, but not completely red.
However, the girl’s facial contours are rather soft, a bit similar to Asians.
“You looked very similar to some people I used to know, except for your hair and iris color.”
After coming to this world, he got a new family and many friends. He has already taken root in Arden, and the notion of leaving had never crossed his mind,
“I’m going to use one of the words in my name, Bai, as your surname.”
“As for your name…”
Bai Luo said, “Yinuo.”
“From today, your name is Bai Yinuo.”
This name is rather peculiar in Miracle Continent, but he heard that there are several countries where people put their surname first, so it can’t be considered unique.
Besides, this little girl is actually very cute.
At least per the aesthetics of the Ardennes, she is a top-class beauty.
More importantly, Bai Yinuo has a more ancient style of beauty, something that can’t be found in Arden.
Although she is still young now, in the future, she might grow to become a beauty comparable to his elder sister.
The little girl muttered to herself, but her pronunciation was very poor, Bai Luo quickly corrected her,
“It’s not Yinu, it’s Yinuo, come, repeat after me, Yi~~Nuo~~”
“Yi ~ nu!”
However, the little girl’s pronunciation was still very poor. Bai Luo had no choice but to say, “I’ll give you another nickname. Before you learn to pronounce your name, use this nickname.”
Bai Luo felt that this nickname would soon be forgotten, so he chose one randomly.
However, the little girl liked the name very much, reciting it many times. She even started dancing and hopping around like a bunny.
In Xiao Bai’s mind, all people have only one name, but her master gave her two.
One name is love, two names are double love.
‘I’m so happy, master is so kind to Xiao Bai!’
Bai Luo felt heartbroken, Xiao Bai ignored the name he thought about so earnestly, instead, she was so fond of the name that was used to address pets…
Silently, Xiao Bai’s miracle power has subtly changed, and the attributes on the sixth page have also changed.
[Remnant of the Old World]
Master: Bai Luo Arden
Level: Can’t Be Evaluated
Type: Miracle Creatures
Faction: Lost Kingdom
Ability: Explore on your own
Contract method: find her, buy her with all your wealth, then unbind her and set her free.
Awakening Method: Give her a new name, and use the name as a chain to connect to her, never to be separated.
‘What the hell is this ‘explore on your own?’’
Bai Luo feels that the black book is becoming more and more unreliable recently. First was the weird sacrifice for the miracle on the fifth page, and then Xiao Bai,
‘Or are all the miracles of the lost kingdom so special?’
“Xiao Bai, do you feel any different?”
Facing Bai Luo’s question, Xiao Bai’s face was full of doubts, she didn’t feel anything different about herself.
She curiously looked at Bai Luo, then at herself for a moment before her gaze landed on her clothes,
“Xiao Bai is wearing comfortable clothes.”
Well, her clothes are different.
“No, I’m not talking about this, I’m talking about, um… Do you feel like you’ve become powerful? Do you feel like you have acquired something?” Bai Luo said, “For example…”
Bai Luo said expectantly, “Have you mastered the power of magic?”
“Magic? Xiao Bai can’t use magic.”
The moment she said this, Xiao Bai was stunned, “Why does Xiao Bai understand what magic is?”
Hearing Xiao Bai’s words, Bai Luo quickly made an attempt.
‘Xiao Bai, can you hear me?’
Bai Luo didn’t speak, but his voice directly appeared in Xiao Bai’s mind, causing her to look at him with wide eyes,
“Master, are you the one talking to Xiao Bai?”
Bai Luo nodded and explained, “Xiao Bai, you have become my miracle now, a miracle is…”
“Oh, Xiao Bai got it!”
Miracle creatures can share common sense and the knowledge of miracle masters. Maybe Xiao Bai had never heard about miracles in the past, but now she completely understands it.
“Xiao Bai is the master’s miracle creature!”
She didn’t feel unhappy, on the contrary, Xiao Bai was reeling with excitement.
In this way, her master will never abandon her! That’s what made her so happy.
“You’re indeed a miracle creature, but it’s more than that, I feel that we are more like family.”
Bai Luo affirmed, “No, we are family.”
The relationship between the miracle creature and the miracle master is even closer than companions and family. Bai Luo gently ruffled Xiao Bai’s head and smiled,
“In the future, Xiao Bai will live with us. Don’t worry, if anyone dares to hurt you, I’ll kill him!”
She was obviously a cowardly slave just not long ago, but upon sensing Bai Luo’s killing intent, Xiao Bai didn’t have the slightest fear, instead, she looked very eager.
She felt that helping cut off her master’s enemies was her mission and only meaning of existence.
In the following time, Bai Luo asked about Xiao Bai’s past.
He mainly wanted to know if those slave traders have ever bullied Xiao Bai. If they had, Bai Luo would definitely avenge her.
However, Xiao Bai unexpectedly didn’t speak ill of them. Instead, she said that without them, she might have died a long time ago.
Bai Luo noticed that the little girl was reluctant to think of her past, and he changed the topic.
“Do you like fighting?”
Bai Luo felt that he had found a way to tap into Xiao Bai’s power, but he couldn’t test it now,
“Forget it, it isn’t the time to explore this yet.”
Once they return to Arden island, Bai Luo will call the professionals, Issafeiya and Saros, to do the testing.
“You must be hungry”
Bai Luo gently held Xiao Bai’s hand,
“Let’s go, I’ll take you to eat something delicious.”
As the miracle connection was established, Xiao Bai was no longer afraid of Bai Luo, but got incomparably close and attached to him. She felt that as long as she is by her master’s side, nothing can scare her.
Bai Luo walked to the deck and formally introduced Xiao Bai to them,
“This is Bai Yinuo, you can also call her Xiao Bai, she is my…”
“Prepare for the ceremony!”
Bai Luo called everyone into the cabin, but he didn’t say much. He just ordered the crowd to kneel on one knee.
The Ardennes looked at each other in dismay. The clever Gonia was the first to react. She covered her mouth and looked at Bai Luo with an incredulous expression, then at Xiao Bai.
“No, it can’t be? Is she?!”
Bai Luo didn’t say that word, but Gonia’s reaction, as well as the word ‘ceremony’, was enough for everyone to guess that Xiao Bai is a miracle.
This is too surreal, but Bai Luo departed so urgently before, then brought back this little girl. This had already happened two times in the past, and each time, he brought back a miracle, therefore, everyone almost subconsciously believed in Bai Luo.
Xiao Bai is a miracle.
Since Bai Luo said so, there’s no doubt about it!
What’s more, Bai Luo never lied to them, and he is a miracle master, naturally, he can’t be mistaken.
Xiao Bai is a living entity. As long as the miracle master can communicate spiritually with her, then she is 100% a miracle.
The soul of the miracle and its master are connected after all.
“Four, this is the fourth…”
Emmett was so excited she couldn’t speak. She knelt gracefully in front of Bai Luo, her face flushed with excitement.
“Boss, you are awesome~~~”
As for the little John, Fiora, and Anderson, the three of them couldn’t stop praising him internally. They respectfully knelt down, perfectly performing the oath ceremony, respectfully, humbly, and solemnly.
Just like that, that wonderful 3 minutes has passed again.
With that said, this oath ceremony kinda became Arden’s custom. Every half a month or so, it had to happen.
“Xiao Bai’s case will have to wait until we go back to Arden island for further exploration. Now, let’s carry out the purpose of this journey first”
Bai Luo suppressed the joy of getting Xiao Bai. At noon, he just made more food for everyone as a treat.
“Xiao Bai, try this, it’s delicious.”
“And this, it’s also very tasty.”
“Try mine too.”
At lunch, everyone gathered in front of Xiao Bai and gave her food.
Miracles have a special status in all kingdoms. They are more like patron saints than the people, so no amount of respect can be an overstatement for the miracles that protect them.
In addition, Xiao Bai looks no different from a human, which drew them even closer and gave them the courage to contact her.
However, Xiao Bai couldn’t understand what they said.
“Um, hello everyone, I’m Xiao Bai…”
The communication between Xiao Bai and Bai Luo was very smooth, but in the face of strangers, Xiao Bai seemed very introverted and shy.
Due to the soul connection, Xiao Bai shares many things with Bai Luo, including a part of his feelings. Therefore, she also has a certain affection for the Ardennes, and she doesn’t hate their enthusiasm.
It’s just the language barrier that’s blocking them from truly getting to know each other.
“She speaks the desolate folk language. If you have anything you want to convey, I’ll translate it for you.”
Gonia deserves to be one of Arden’s smartest and most knowledgeable women. She has mastered a lot of languages, including the desolate folk language, and her fluency is many times better than Bai Luo’s.
“Come on, this is a steamed bun, eat it, it’s delicious.”
Gonia smiled and handed her a hot bun, Xiao Bai glanced at Bailuo, who nodded with a smile.
After taking the meat bun, Xiao Bai took a small bite, and her eyes instantly lit up.
‘Xiao Bai is very young, and judging from her appearance, she’s even younger than Fiora…’
After learning about Xiao Bai’s life experience, Emmett’s motherly instinct was immediately pricked. She vowed to take care of Xiao Bai from now on.
After that, she carefully fed her, then gently wiped her mouth, her eyes filled with love.
