This is a Miracle - Chapter 9
“Basic Sacred Pouch, is this the name of this treasure?”
Bai Luo mused,
“Its level is bottom, does that mean that miracles also have levels? Then according to this inference, there should be low, mid, and high.”
“But the pouch is a bottom level miracle, the bottom level…”
Bai Luo originally thought ‘I’m hungry’ is a password needed to use the pouch.
Now it seems that this is the requirement of the contract. After the contract is established, there’s no need to ever recite it again.
“A miracle capable of creating seeds and fruits. This ability is very interesting, but its functionality doesn’t seem to be that high…”
Bai Luo realized something.
“My course of thought is wrong!”
He quickly squatted then grabbed a handful of rice.
“This, this seems to be…”
Bai Luo took a closer look and confirmed his guess. He realized the real function of this pouch.
“Divine artifact, this thing is a divine artifact!!”
Bai Luo could never misjudge this rice. This is the same type of rice that Bai Luo had eaten in his past life.
If he was just an ordinary person just like his past life, a man that had never set foot in the fields, Bai Luo certainly wouldn’t be able to detect the subtle difference between different types of rice.
However, Bai Luo has lived in this world for 20 years. He has substantial knowledge about the crops here, and he has also farmed in the fields. Naturally, he can detect the extraordinary characteristics of these rice grains at a glance.
The Ardennes and the citizens of the Iron Eagle Kingdom mainly cultivate a crop called the ‘Golden Cascading Wheat’
It looks like wheat and it’s even more golden, hence its name.
But this thing is not delicious, it needs to be ground into a powder before it can be used, and the final product is like a paste, unpalatable.
As for the output, it is about 150 pounds per acre.
150 pounds per one acre of land. Two harvests a year can provide them a maximum yield of 300 pounds. Moreover, the Arden village soil is relatively infertile, yielding just 200 pounds every year.
Such a low yield, coupled with heavy taxes, may not even be able to feed one person.
Bai Luo does not have modern fertilizers, but with just the high quality of hybrid rice, the yield is destined to be extraordinary.
Even if he doesn’t have fertilizers, the yield will definitely be above that of golden cascading wheat.
However, because he had never planted it before, Bai Luo doesn’t know how much grain would grow after planting the seeds.
“It’s not just rice.”
“There are tomatoes, sweet potatoes, potatoes…”
Potatoes reproduce Asexually with tuberous roots, but it does not mean that they have no seeds.
If all the seeds of plants that Bai Luo has eaten can be created by this pouch, then Bai Luo can already see the culinary dominance he will hold over this world.
“A miracle that can fill people’s stomachs, this thing…”
This pouch is definitely an artifact!
With enough time, Bai Luo can bring all crops from his previous life to this world!
“With seeds, the first crops can be planted and then cultivated.”
Bai Luo suddenly hesitated, “But in this way, will the seeds be taken away?”
After Bai Luo pours out the seeds and plants the crops, wouldn’t outsiders improve their agricultural level as well by stealing part of their grain?
The sacred pouch seemed to sense Bai Luo’s concerns, immediately transferring some information to him.
“Can I give orders to the seeds created by the pouch, forbidding them from growing in any place that I didn’t allow?”
A miracle belongs to its master. It only obeys the command of the master.
Therefore, as long as Bai Luo stipulates, the seeds poured out of the pouch and even seeds derived from those seeds can only grow within the domain of the Arden village.
Even if sold, the seeds cannot successfully germinate in the hands of others.
“So this is a miracle, it’s really convenient.”
Bai Luo didn’t expect that the basic sacred pouch had such an ability.
“This is a power that belongs to just one person, no wonder they are called masters of miracles. I finally understand.”
Bai Luo has always been worried about the food problem of the Ardennes.
Fortunately, the food that this pouch can provide every day can solve the urgent food problem of the Ardennes.
Once the planting is successful, they can expand the planting scale, making it so that Bai Luo has enough grain in his hands.
There are too many poor people in the Iron Eagle Kingdom, starving, freezing, and suffering from the persecution of the nobles. Bai Luo can rely on food to draw them over, then develop his power step by step.
“I must go back and discuss this with uncle.”
Bai Luo chose to conceal the existence of the Black Book, but he doesn’t need to hide the existence of the pouch, nor can he hide it.
Uncle Saros, Inya, and Issafeiya are the people that Bai Luo trusts the most in the world.
Even if people all over the world betray Bai Luo, they will guard him unswervingly.
After getting used to living in this world in hardcore mode, Bai Luo felt very excited and even a little uneasy after getting a cheat.
He got the miracle that his uncle talked about so yearningly! He changed from an ordinary person to a miracle master with a divine tool.
Especially after knowing the ability of the pouch, it is a perfect match for a reincarnator like him.
Even if someone else got the sacred pouch, how much of its potential can they bring out?
They certainly can’t bring out specially cultivated or hybrid crops, they can only rely on themselves.
In Bai Luo’s case, the crops he had eaten in his previous life were specially cultivated by countless modern agronomists.
‘It’s not just that.’
Bai Luo looked at the black book, page 2 to page 10 are still blank,
‘This book still has many pages, doesn’t that mean that it can help me find more miracles?’
Thinking of this possibility, Bai Luo couldn’t help but smile,
‘I mustn’t get too happy too early, after all, I’m still not certain if it’s truly capable of that.’
“Calm down! Bai Luo!”
“You must remain calm and low-key!”
The appearance of a cheat made Bai Luo very excited, but he quickly restrained his exhilaration.
After living in this dangerous world for twenty years, Bai Luo was no longer an ordinary person like in his past life. He took a deep breath and returned to his usual stability.
“Now, I have to find a way to take this rice back.”
Bai Luo couldn’t abandon the 100 kilos of rice.
Not to mention that the Ardennes are poor, even if they are rich, they definitely wouldn’t be able to buy such things on the market.
“But I’m not in a good state now, and I don’t have any containers.”
If he wasn’t injured, don’t mention 100 kilos, even if it was 200, Bai Luo could carry it with one hand and run 10 kilometers without sweating or blushing.
However, Bai Luo is still injured. He has the intention, but he doesn’t have the ability.
Therefore, he intends to go back to the village and tell people to bring these grains back.
As for whether to distribute it to the Ardennes immediately and how to divide it, Bai Luo intends to ask uncle Saros first.
“Brother Bai Luo~~~”
Just as Bai Luo was planning his next course of action, Mia, who had just left not long ago, came running towards him.
This little girl is very close to Inya. When she was three or four years old, she often followed behind and played with Inya
That’s another reason why Mia is so close to Bai Luo.
Bai Luo smiled and said,
“I just came here, can you find someone to help me move this pile of things back?”
Bai Luo’s leg is still injured. He is indeed strong enough to move this weight, but not only will it be inconvenient, but it will also delay the healing of his injuries.
“What is this, Brother Bai Luo?”
Mia noticed the pile of rice grains beside Bai Luo, 100 kilograms, for an eight or nine-year-old girl, it was not a question of whether she was able or not. It will crush her to death.
Even with the monster-like physique of the Ardennes, little Mia can’t handle such a weight yet.
How heavy are 100 kilograms? A bucket of mineral water, the big bucket on the water dispenser, is about 18 kilograms.
In other words, the weight of the pile of rice here is about the same as 6 buckets of mineral water.
Moreover, this place is more than 1 kilometer away from Bai Luo’s house, little Mia certainly can’t bring these back alone.
Bai Luo didn’t know how to explain what rice is to her. Rice doesn’t look like Golden Cascading wheat after all.
Moreover, last year’s golden cascading wheat yielded only 50 pounds per acre, and it has long been consumed.
“This is a new kind of grain that I discovered. Ask the children in the village to help me bring it back. I’ll treat you to this tonight.”
The reason why Bai Luo chose children for this task is that they are pure-hearted.
Even if they eat rice, they will just think it’s some kind of fresh food, and they won’t think too much about it.
Bai Luo was not guarding against the Ardennes, he just didn’t know how to explain this matter to them.
The old man is very knowledgeable, so he decided to ask the old man’s opinion and discuss this matter thoroughly before making a decision.
Bai Luo has already passed the impulsive and passionate age.
A few years back, when he just started his journey to explore the world, he killed a greedy black-hearted merchant because he couldn’t hold his anger, forcing him and his elder sister to flee for several days.
Since then, Bai Luo has tried his best to think twice before taking any action.
Of course, the premise is not to touch Bai Luo’s bottom line. If it’s really intolerable, Bai Luo won’t hesitate to kill.
“No need, I’ll go call Abaddon and my brother now.”
How could Mia back down? She wished nothing more than to help Bai Luo.
After all, Bai Luo took care of her and her brother for many years.
Bai Luo didn’t insist, he patted the girl’s head and watched the other party leave.
Soon, Mia brought back her brother Schuster and another boy with her.
Hearing that he was about to move stuff again, Schuster paled, his body is quite weak, making it difficult for him to do physically taxing tasks
“Haha, it’s just moving some stuff, what are you afraid of Schuster?”
Abaddon is 10 years old this year. Although he is the same age as Schuster, he is very strong and the leader of children in the village.
Of course, Abaddon is not a bully.
He is honest, attentive, and smart. Even the strict uncle Saros praised the kid, saying that he has the potential of a general.
“Big Brother Bai Luo, is this the thing?”
“What is this?”
As Abaddon asked, he started packing up the rice on the ground with a cloth bag:
“Schuster and Mia, Help me pick up the small clump that fell on the ground. You must pick up all the grains.”
The Ardennes are very poor, so they are particularly serious about food. They aren’t willing to even let a single grain go to waste.
Abaddon doesn’t have any knowledge about rice, but it looks a bit similar to golden cascading wheat, so he quickly guessed that it’s some kind of grain.
Since it is food, it cannot be wasted. This is the virtue of the Ardennes.
Abaddon smiled at Schuster, “I am enough for this task.”
Abaddon knows that Schuster isn’t in good health. Every time the latter faints, Abaddon is the one to carry him back.
Abaddon is also a native Ardennes, but despite being only 10 years old, his strength is far greater than that of ordinary adults, showing his high aptitude.
In another five or six years, when Abaddon fully grows up, he will definitely be a strong general under Bai Luo’s command.
“You too Mia, put the remaining rain in a bag.”
Abaddon’s strength was so great that he took the task of carrying the rice alone, holding more than 90% of it.
“I brought a bag too.”
“Give me that bag.”
Although Bai Luo is injured, he is not a delicate person, but before he could take the bag, Abaddon hurriedly said,
“Brother Bai Luo, you are injured, let us do these things.”
Like Schuster and Mia, Abaddon is an orphan. The reason why he survived is thanks to Bai Luo’s and the rest of the villagers’ help.
He naturally wants to repay the favor, but Bai Luo is too strong and Abaddon is too young to be of much help.
So even if it’s just a small thing, the boy wants to help.
“Hey, it’s pretty heavy.”
A total of three bags amounting to almost 100 kilograms were hanging on his back.
Abaddon kept the heavy load on his back without any change in his expression, walking with vigorous steps and awe-inspiring vigor.
‘The former little brat has grown up.’
Bai Luo looked at Abaddon’s steady steady back and saw his shadow in him.
‘I remember that the old man trained me like this back then.’
Looking at Schuster again, he was also looking at Abaddon’s back. Bai Luo could clearly see the envy in his eyes.
The bloodline of the Ardennes is much better than ordinary people, granting them strength far beyond ordinary people.
When Bai Luo first reincarnated, he thought that this was the per capita level of strength in this world.
It wasn’t until he set off on his first journey that he realized the pleasure of crushing noobs.
The Ardennes are endowed with superior physique and instincts. They are natural warriors.
If it were not for the lack of food, their small population, and the fact that they had hardly any equipment or weapons, they wouldn’t be so poor.
Of course, the most important factor that led to their predicament is the persecution of the Iron Eagle Kingdom’s nobles.
When he didn’t know the history of the Arden clan before, Bai Luo often wondered why they were treated so harshly, but after hearing their history from his uncle, he finally understood the reason.
‘Earl of Thorns, Iron Eagle Kingdom, Iron Eagle King…’
Bai Luo suppressed his killing intent in the depth of his heart. He walked at the forefront of the team, leading Schuster and little Mia, walking towards the village.
Soon, the four came to Bai Luo’s house.
Abaddon put the bag of rice in Bai Luo’s house, and then, together with Mia, carefully assisted Bai Luo to sit down on the bed.
Afterward, the three children found some sacks, packed the rice in batches, and tied them tightly. Only then did they move the rice to Bai Luo’s underground warehouse, apart from one small bag.
“Next time you have an errand or job, remember to call me, Brother Bai Luo.”
By the end of the job, Abaddon was not exhausted at all. He was still full of vigor, wishing to continue working for three days and nights.
Little Miya raised her hands happily. Schuster, the shy boy, quickly followed up.
“If it’s not too heavy, I can help too.”
The current population of Arden is mostly composed of children, and Abaddon is their representative.
They are the new generation who are eager to quickly grow up and then do their part to protect the village and their families.
They are the future of the Arden clan.
