Lord of Flames - Chapter 12
Chapter 12. Divine Grace!
These Fox people had never seen such a crop before. The string was so long.
Each of them had at least one or two layers! The yield of this crop was at least three to four jin.
[TLN: Jin – Chinese unit of measurement, which is equivalent to 500 grams.]
Compared to rice, this product was simply terrifying. One had to know how much land this crop occupied. Moreover, it seemed that there was no need for irrigation, no need for meticulous care like rice or wheat. The soil here was also so fertile thus there was no need to fertilize it. It was as if they had planted it, so there was no need to worry about it.
“Holy Maiden, can I take a look?” At the side, the Chief asked excitedly.
Qing Ling nodded and handed the bunch of potatoes to the Chief. The Chief raised her hand and felt it sink.
“This output is so terrifying!” The Chief didn’t bother to conceal her shock.
What is even more terrifying was that if all these crops possessed such terrifying products, how terrifying would the yield per mu be?
[TLN: Mu – Chinese unit of measurement, which is equivalent to 666.5 sqm]
That was a number that she did not dare to think of. Even if it was a human who was proficient in agriculture, he would be shocked. One must know that the peak output of potatoes in the world before Lin Yan transmigrated was not a problem.
How much rice? In this world, there was no mixed rice or fertilizer as good as in his previous life. Even if magic or divine arts were used to increase the yield, it would be able to reach the level of mixed/water rice. At most, it would only produce 1,000 to 2,000 per mu.
The amount of energy and time needed for the rice to grow was far greater than that needed for potatoes. Therefore, this bunch of potatoes caused the Chief to be stunned for a long time.
As for the other Foxes, they were already so excited that they didn’t know what to do. Now, there was still a crucial question. Could this divine gift satisfy their hunger?
That’s right, the Chief hadn’t thought of the taste problem yet. If it could satisfy their hunger, it would have solved all their problems.
“Follow me.” Qing Ling had someone set up a pot. Then, according to the divine revelation she obtained, she washed the potatoes and threw them. In addition, she put a few potatoes in the firewood.
About ten minutes later, the potatoes in the pot were cooked. The potatoes in the firewood could also be eaten. The Fox race became the first to taste potatoes.
As the Holy Maiden, the Qing Ling represented a God and could not eat in public. The Chief took a small bite, and her eyes widened. The surrounding Fox people all focused on her.
“This taste is amazing!” the Chief cried out in alarm.
That’s right. Originally, she had only thought about the problem of filling her hunger. She had never thought about the taste. She never thought that the taste of this potato would be so good. It was far beyond her imagination.
Soon after, the potatoes that had been burned in the fire were also dugout. The Chief was still the first to taste them. To her surprise, the taste of the cooked potato was better than that of the boiled potato.
The Chief ate the entire roasted potato in one breath.
“It is too delicious!”
It was as if the Chief had never tasted such a delicacy before. As she ate it, she praised it without end. Beside her, the Foxes smelled the aroma of roasted potatoes and all of them drooled.
“Let’s split it. The rest of the divine beans need to be planted to expand the scale of cultivation. After all the divine beans are produced, they must be distributed uniformly. No one is allowed to leave them without permission. In addition, they must send people to collect all the divine beans scattered in the forest,” the Fox girl said. She had already gained the dignity of a holy maiden.
The reason why she wanted to distribute it all was that Lin Yan didn’t have any divine power yet. It wasn’t like there weren’t any gods on the Continent of the Gods improving their crops.
However, after improvement, these gods would often use their divine power to leave imprints on the genetic level. This way, other than the “seeds” left behind by the church, even if others bought the crops outside, they would not be able to use these crops to reproduce.
If an ordinary person wanted to sow seeds, they could only receive them from the church. This was one of the church’s methods to increase their influence. This was equivalent to a patent from his previous life, but it was done even better. Patents couldn’t be counterfeited in the open, and here, you couldn’t even do it dark.
Potatoes were easy to grow and the operation wasn’t difficult. Lin Yan didn’t want this thing that could make him rich to be secretly learned by the churches of other gods.
Right now, there was only the Fox race, which was easy to control. Once there were more believers, they would still have to use the methods of other gods. Using divine power imprints to control the potato’s “seed.”
Hearing Qing Ling’s words, the surrounding Fox people began to split up the dozen or so potatoes. Every Fox person that ate showed a satisfied expression!
“Not only is the taste good, but it’s also very satisfying after eating! A Divine Gift is indeed extraordinary!” a Fox man said with a sincere expression.
“A Divine Grace!” another one said.
Every single Fox person could feel that boundless Divine Grace.
All the Fox people present began to express their most devout belief in that supreme Flame God. Faith was very weak. But this thing was sometimes related to the needs of life. If a God did not give protection to his followers and grant them gifts, how could they believe in Him? That was why it was a very real thing, especially for the Continent of Gods.
Under the encouragement of this belief, all the Fox people began to work with one thousand percent of their energy. A new temple began to be built. Soon after, the scattered tribesmen also returned.
After two days of being exposed to the sun, the water content in the forest was no longer high.
After two days in the pile of firewood that the Fox people had set up, Lin Yan finally prepared to leave for the Misty Mountain Range!
