Lord of Flames - Chapter 10
Chapter 10. My Holy Maiden is a genius!
Qing Ling carefully cut the potatoes in half before planting them on the raised ground. To find these two potatoes, she had followed the guidance of the Gods and personally led her people to search the forest for a long time before finding them.
Potatoes did not attract much attention in this world and were often treated as weeds. In the eyes of many nobles, how could they eat something that grew in the soil? Even the orcs did not know that this thing could be eaten. But since it was the guidance of a God, it was right. Thus, during the entire process, Qing Ling was very careful. At the side, the chief and the Fox girls were also very serious. Finally, all the potatoes were planted.
Qing Ling squatted in front of a planted potato, stretched out her slender hand, and began to mumble. Then, a small flame appeared on her hand. She placed her hand on the soil, and the temperature of the soil began to rise.
Seeing this, the chief revealed a surprised and delighted expression.
“Holy Maiden, your magic power has awakened?” The Chief was not surprised. Magicians were quite noble, and the Orcish tribes did not know much about magic. They were not born with this ability.
Not many Gods were willing to protect the orcs. Many of the orcs believed in barbarians, and all of them were muscular men who only knew brute force. Only the priests among the Orcish tribes knew some magic. However, the Fox people were a bit special. The Fox people’s spiritual energy was a bit stronger than that of ordinary Orcish tribes. Some of the Fox people’s spiritual energy was even comparable to that of humans. But even so, the number of people who awakened their magic power was pitifully low.
Looking at the Fox girl’s appearance, she seemed to have awakened her magic power and become an apprentice-level magus. Although she was an apprentice, to the Orcish, she was already quite impressive. This was something many Orcish tribes would never be able to do in their lifetime! Thus, as soon as the Chief of the Fox race finished speaking, the surrounding Fox girls looked at Qing Ling with envy.
Being a Holy Maiden is truly amazing!
Unfortunately, there was only one Holy Maiden*. She had to be the most beautiful and holy woman in the clan. None of them could compare to Qing Ling.
[TLN: There is only one Holy Maiden amongst each race. Therefore Qing Ling is the Holy Maiden of the Fox Race.]
If I can become a priest in the temple and become a servant of God, it will be fortunate! Some Fox girls thought to themselves.
On the ground, Qing Ling said softly, “Yes, mother, I have received the blessing of The Great Lord of Flames. I have awakened my magical power and have become a rank 2 Magic Apprentice!”
As she spoke, she used flames to provide a suitable temperature for the soil and then injected her magic power into it.*
[TLN: Please see the end of the chapter for notes on levels.]
In just a dozen seconds, a strand of tender shoots emerged from the soil. Then, the longer it grew, the higher the potatoes!
The Fox girl had learned to use magic power to accelerate the growth of plants!
However, her methods were still very low-level. It was low-level magic. If she used higher-level magic, the effect would be better and the consumption would be lower.
No matter which Divine Church it was, there would always be mages who would occasionally go to different places to do such things. Those mages were often able to speed up the entire plots of land at once. This was also one of the methods used by the Gods to display miracles and stabilize their belief. At the same time, it could increase the grain output and increase the amount of food in one go.
Under the influence of the Fox girl’s Qing Ling’s magic power, the buds grew higher and higher. However, she had only just become a Magic Apprentice, and her magic power was limited. Her little face quickly became a little strained.
“Eh? My Holy Maiden is a genius,” on the cliff, Lin Yan, who was observing the surroundings, exclaimed in surprise.
A blessing from the Virtual Godhead allowed her to awaken her magic power and become a rank 2 Appreciate. The Fox girl’s magic talent was quite amazing.
Lin Yan pondered for a moment before sending some magic power through the Virtual Godhead. After the Fox girl became the Holy Maiden, the Virtual Godhead had already recorded some of her body information. It was completely possible to do this through the line of belief.
Although he did not have any magic power, the power of belief could also be converted into magic power. It was not like converting the power of belief into Divine power by an exaggerated ratio of over 100,000 to one. The ratio of the power of belief to magic power, especially the magic power of an Apprentice, was quite small. One bit of the power of belief could be converted into a lot of magic power.
On the ground, the Fox girl felt that her magic power had dried up. Suddenly, a wave of magic power came out of nowhere, instantly replenishing her magic power.
Due to the impact of this high-quality magic power, her magic level had increased by several levels.
“Our God is watching over me!”
The little face beneath the Fox girl’s veil was filled with excitement. She was full of motivation as more magic power was poured into the potato.
“Alright, we’ll be able to mature it in another day,” Qing Ling said.
Even if they were to use magic power to grow, the crops would still need a natural growth period. After a mage accelerated the growth, the natural growth period for the crops would normally range from five days to half a month.
As for Qing Ling, she was eager to display the preciousness of the divine gift, so she only left her natural growth period for a short day.
