This is a Miracle - Chapter 65
“Have you discussed all the terms?”
Gonia negotiated with the bearded man for a long time, it wasn’t until the evening that they declined the bearded man’s dinner invitation and left.
Bai Luo’s heart is pumping with excitement now. He just wants to go back immediately, then prepare the sacrifice for the miracle on page 5, and by the way, study Bai Yinuo’s miracle power.
He doesn’t have spare time to eat and discuss with some random guy.
“As per our agreement, the first batch will be delivered in a month.”
“Well, it’s just right. We should have formed a sizable military force by then. Even if a rebellion occurs, we should be able to suppress it.”
Bai Luo doesn’t trust the first batches of purchased slaves.
He will give them food and clothing, then slowly train and teach them, brainwashing them until they are loyal to Arden, only then would he try to bestow the power of miracles on them.
Unfortunately, only the minority are destined to obtain this power. Without mentioning the issue of loyalty, few have the talent and adaptability towards miracle power.
Moreover, the power of miracles is special, it can verify loyalty by itself.
As long as they have any trace of ill-intentions or hostility towards the miracle master, the power of miracles will never bless them.
In order to deter the rest of the citizens, Arden needs its own armed forces.
The tree elves’ descendants are about to awaken. Although they are sparsely populated with only 80 people. Once they truly become a miracle, he will receive a low-level miracle race with at least 60 adults, each with exceptional combat power.
With such power, Bai Luo wouldn’t care even if many spies mix up amongst the slaves.
“After we go back, we have to set up some rules and prohibitions,” Bai Luo seriously said,
“The existence of Shirley, Lilith, and Xiao Bai will become a secret among secrets, and non-core Ardennes aren’t qualified to know about them.”
The so-called core Ardennes are the members of the Arden clan that followed him first, and the tree elves who will become his miracle race in the future.
Bai Luo can absolutely trust them.
Moreover, this group of people will become the secret guardians and the royal army of the Duchy of Arden, guarding the secrets of the royal family and protecting the interest of Arden.
If anyone could be an exception and gain the trust of Bai Luo, it would be those that become his miracle children.
Such people are absolutely loyal and are qualified to become a part of the core Ardennes, and Bai Luo will treat them equally to the current core Ardennes.
“Next, we’re going to carry out the second mission.”
The second task is to acquire adequate livestock and horses for Arden island.
At the same time, Bai Luo plans to import some dairy cows and poultry to add milk and eggs to Arden’s menu and enrich the diet of the Ardennes
The basic sacred pouch can pour out seeds, but it can’t create animals.
Fortunately, this deal was relatively easy.
It doesn’t involve any political struggle, it’s a simple trade. Moreover, the profits are great, no one would dislike such a business.
Bai Luo didn’t choose only one party to deal with but shared the benefits equally. He contracted six traders with the task of transporting livestock and horses to ensure that they would be delivered to him at any time.
However, before they finish the construction of Arden island’s port, and officially open it, all the supplies will be sent to an island about 4 days away southwest and transferred by a specialized group from Arden.
Of course, if someone tries to track them, then don’t blame Bai Luo for being ruthless.
“Okay, let’s go.”
Bai Luo returned to the ship and announced their departure. It has been 7 or 8 days since they left Arden and they were starting to miss it.
“Let’s go, let’s go home~”
Little John was delighted, and Fiora called the white eagle hidden in the ship and started to tell her little friend her progress in magic.
There is a rather interesting fact here that needs to be explained.
Fiora and the white eagle had been away from Lilith for quite some time. Moreover, the distance between the two is enormous, but Fiora’s magic power and the white eagle’s fairy power hadn’t stopped growing.
In this regard, Bai Luo’s judgment was,
‘The power of miracles should not correlate with spatial distance. No matter how far they are, they will not stop growing.’
“So what exactly is your ability, Xiao Bai?”
Both Lilith and Shirley have amazing abilities.
Since they’re all miracle creatures, Xiao Bai shouldn’t be too bad.
Although he didn’t know what the old world’s remnants were, Bai Luo felt that Bai Yinuo would never be weaker than Fairy and Pegasus.
“Xiao Bai doesn’t know.”
Bai Yinuo felt that she seemed to possess a great appetite, but other than that, she didn’t feel anything special.
“After eating so much, your strength should have increased, right?”
After saying that, Bai Luo began testing Bai Yinou’s strength. Her strength didn’t increase, but not by much.
“Xia Bai, could it be that you’re not a power-type miracle?”
Bai Luo then tested all of Bai Yinuo’s attributes, but the results were even worse than ordinary children at her age, let alone fantastical creatures like Pegasus and Fairy.
“Is Xiao Bai useless?”
Bai Yinou was very sad because of complete lack of ability
If she hadn’t signed the miracle contract and was still that lonely slave, Bai Yinuo would have knelt on the ground, hugging Bai Luo’s legs and pleading him to not abandon her.
“Of course not!”
Bai Luo treats Bai Yinuo just like his little sister. The miracle and miracle master’s emotions resonate with each other, hence he could clearly feel her sadness and dejection, which made him very distressed.
“Eat a bun, as long as you eat a few, you should feel better.”
Bai Yinuo is relatively simple, she laughs when she is happy and gets depressed when she is unhappy.
However, most of the time, she can be found in some corner, quietly eating buns.
Therefore, for her at least, there’s no problem that can’t be solved with a bun.
If there is, eat another one!
After eating ten bean paste buns in a row, a satisfied smile appeared on Bai Yinuo’s face,
“The bean paste buns are delicious.”
“That’s great to hear.”
Bai Luo smiled and said, “Our family might not have much, but you will never lack buns!”
There were no accidents on the way home.
It will take at least a month to deliver a batch of slaves each time, but livestock transportation is much faster.
The merchants have already started to prepare. Bai Luo will not personally bring it back, but it will be ready within three days.
Therefore, in at most ten days, these domestic animals will be transported to Arden Island by the tree elves.
At that time, the Ardennes will not long lack meat, and their diet will become more nutritious and diverse.
“I see the island, boss!”
Little John stood on the observation deck and was looking around with his monoculars. Upon seeing the distant black dot, he quickly jumped down to the deck and shouted.
“We’re finally back.”
Bai Luo said, quickly noticing a large number of birds in the sky. Their number had greatly increased.
Unsuspecting people might think that these were migratory birds unique to Arden Island, but in reality, they are the seamen of Arden’s marine headquarters and the aerial sentries of the fairy clan.
“Your Majesty, Second Lieutenant white eagle Silver of the Marine Headquarters is here to report!”
Under the leadership of the white eagle silver, nearly a hundred seagulls and migratory birds circled in the air and landed on the ship’s railing.
“In the two weeks that I have been away, had the fairy clan grown so much?”
“It has increased to 400, Your Majesty!”
The white eagle Silver is very good at statistics. It reported the distribution of the fairy clan on the island,
“There are 120 flying-feather fairies, 150 water-dwelling fairies, and about 130 fluffy fairies.”
Flying-feather fairies refer to the birds with flight capabilities that have received Lilith’s miracle power.
The water-dwelling fairies obviously refer to the creatures that survive in water. And the fluffy fairies are cats, dogs, and other hairy creatures.
However, with the increase in their numbers, a series of problems arose, the most prominent one being the increasing difficulty to distinguish between members of the fairy clan and food.
Fortunately, Bai Luo took this into consideration and told Lilith to set some rules.
That is, water-dwelling fairies are limited to large creatures such as dolphins, sharks, and whales, which can ensure that fishermen will not catch water fairies.
The fluffy fairies on the other hand have been limited to just the pets raised by the Ardennes.
Lilith will not grant the power of fairies to purely wild animals.
There aren’t too many restrictions on birds though. That is, poultry mustn’t be endowed with intelligence.
If it’s some exotic bird, their type must be determined first before taking further action. Later, the Ardennes will eliminate these types of birds from their diets.
It has to be said that under the condition of Lilith’s miracle power output being constant, such centralized cultivation is far more efficient than just casting a wide net.
“Have they already grown so much?”
Bai Luo noted that the growth rate of the fairy clan was much faster than the growth of the others.
His only regret is that the reproductive isolation of the fairy clan is severe. Even if they are both members of the fairy clan, different species still can’t breed offspring.
Fortunately, members of the fairy clan don’t use fertility as a measure for racial distinction.
As long as they’re Lilith’s miracle derivatives, they are family. Even cats and mice wouldn’t attack each other.
“Flying Feather Fairies, you must carefully survey Arden’s entrance and monitor this entire sea area at all times.”
“As you command! Your Majesty!”
The wisdom of fairies was bestowed by Bai Luo, in their eyes, he was not different from their creator, a god.
It is their honor to serve Bai Luo.
“By the way, since the Feather clan has grown to 120, your military rank must also be promoted, otherwise, it will be difficult for you to completely reign them.”
Bai Luo smiled and said, “From today onwards, I will appoint you, White Eagle Silver, as captain of the Arden Marine Headquarters.”
Due to excessive excitement, Silver released that duck-like cry again,
“Thank you, Your Majesty! I, White Eagle Silver, pledge to repay Your Majesty’s grace!”
“I give you the right to appoint subordinates, but not too much, understand?”
“Your subordinate understands!”
White Eagle Silver happily flew away with his subordinates. Following behind was White Eagle Sine who had always stood behind.
Bai Luo noticed that the Ardennes were already waiting at the port. For them, welcoming their king’s return is more important than anything else.
In the distance, Bai Luo heard Inya’s voice, she was jumping up and down while constantly waving her hands. He smiled and waved back, Bai Yinuo curiously looked at Inya.
“Huh? Why is there an extra person?”
“Brother, who is this?”
This is the first meeting between Inya and Bai Yinuo. Perhaps, because the same type attracts each other, Inya felt the aura of a kindred spirit on Bai Yinuo’s body.
Inya: ‘I might have seen this sister before.’
Bai Yinuo: ‘No, we haven’t met before’
“This is Xiao Bai.”
“This is Inya, my little sister.”
Inya greeted her with a smile, and at the same time, Bai Luo also introduced Bai Yinuo to everyone.
The Ardennes naturally have no doubts about the people Bai Luo personally brought back, but they would still silently observe them for a while to prevent the newcomers from being spies sent by the enemy.
Of course, this doesn’t concern Bai Yinuo, she’s a miracle.
Nevertheless, Bai Luo certainly has to arrange trustworthy people to do this task as soon as possible, because soon enough, a large number of immigrants will come to this land.
At that time, Bai Luo alone will not suffice as a security line.
The Ardennes have to become this nation’s firewall, becoming Bai Luo’s eyes and ears, and monitoring all areas for him at any time.
TL Note: Should I keep calling these intelligent animals fairies? This is the translation that I got, but it doesn’t feel right. I’m thinking of changing it to Gremlins, it’s a bit better, but still not right. If you guys have a better suggestion, please state it.
