Chapter 7 Naroka | The Village Legend: Three Friends uncover the Truth behind a Wizard’s Mysterious Death through an Elder’s Story

After leaving the old pub, Lumian stood on the rammed earth road, hesitating where to go.

The morning sun shone down, bringing with it a slight chill.

At that moment, Raymond. Clegg came from the side.”

“I want you to know.”

“What is it?” Lumian returned to normal and asked deliberately.

Raymond looked surprised.”

“Did you hear that?” Today we are going to find an old man who is about the same age as my grandfather and is still alive to ask about the legend of the wizard.”

Lumian raised his hand to his head, his face pained.

“Is it?” How do I not remember, or are you hallucinating?”

Raymond was shocked and scared. Just as he was about to recall the details and make sure that he had imagined what had happened yesterday, he suddenly saw a smile on Lumian’s face.

“You bastard, in a prank again!” Raymond couldn’t help but scold a way.

“I don’t know.” Lumian clicked his tongue and sighed.”Awa is even better at scolding people than you are.”

Eva. Lizier is a beautiful young girl from the village of Cordu, who is now a “goose-herder.”

Her father Guillaume. Lizier was a shoemaker, skilled in making leather shoes from the leather provided by shepherds, and was famous in the surrounding villages.

“Ava” Raymond’s expression changed.

He then turned to Lumian.”

“Ava is our friend, right?”

“Yes,” she said. Lumian smiled and nodded.

The three of them plus berry home guillaume, o Eva cousin azema. Lizzie, is often in a play of young people.

” Why don’t you let Awa participate in our investigation of the truth of the legend?” Raymond suggested,”You know, her father always said,’Why do women have to give a fortune when they get married, and how many good families go down that way’, which made her very upset, and if she could get some treasure or reward from the investigation, she would be relieved.”

“I have heard similar words from the male owners of several families in the village, including the curate. They wish their brothers would stay at home forever. Even if they get married, they will not go out alone to establish a family. In that case, they need to be given the property they deserve.” Lumian smiled at Raymond and said casually,”So many families prefer to have one of their children become a shepherd, so that he will not get married, but he will have a certain income and can support himself most of the time.”

Raymond’s face gradually darkened.

He really hadn’t thought of this question.

This was also why he liked hanging out with Lumian. Although most people in the village said that Lumian had a bad personality and liked to lie and play pranks, his knowledge and experience exceeded that of everyone his age. Unlike himself, who didn’t know much and could only listen to his family’s arrangements all day.

It is good to know the “sweet sweet” lu mian conduits, the topic back to the right track:

” It’s too late now. We have to hurry up and ask someone. We’ll look for Awa tomorrow. Well, we can also let little Guillaume and Azema participate in the event. Apart from the possibility of bringing in gains, it’s also an interesting activity that can train our abilities.”

“Let little Guillaume and Azema join us?” Raymond is a little reluctant.

The more points reward, the less you get.

And most importantly, if that happened, he would not be able to find a chance to please Ah Wa.

Lumian looked at him with a hint of compassion in his eyes.”

Silly child, you think she can value you? Her eyebrows are high, and she just wants to marry into a good family. She obviously has a good impression of me, a “wicked person,” but she can control her anger.

In the language of the Daliège region, the word “high eyebrows” means that one’s eyes are high and one’s eyes are not on ordinary people.

“My sister said that many people make great efforts.” Lumian simply explained,”Who are the old people who need to visit?”

“You didn’t go to investigate?” Raymond asked in surprise.

After the “scepter” card incident, how could I have the energy to ask Avalon Lumian? He laughed and said,”

” Of course I did. Now I want to test your intelligence gathering ability.”

Raymond no doubt:

“There are nine old people in the village who are still alive. They are about the same age as my grandfather, or a little older. They are all called”

Six women, three men, the ladies were longer life ah ah, quiet finish listen to lu mia Ann, wanted to think:

“The last two don’t have to visit, they are outside the village people, married to here.

” Er, let’s ask Na Roca first. She’s the oldest, and she might have been an adult when the witch incident happened.”

Na roca name is not this, this is your respectful name for her.

In the province of Reston, married women of prominent family or de facto head of household are entitled to the title of “lady,” which is preceded by an “a” to indicate a woman, and a “na” to indicate “lady,””mistress.”

Because of her family’s long decline, and because of her family’s obedience to the Magistrate, Mrs. Pualis could not be called a “na” and “a,” but a separate “ma ‘am.”

Na roca’s husband died young, take on the whole family, even in the two sons adult, marriage, have children, after their very old, also still holds the economic power in the home.

This kind of phenomenon was quite rare in the village of Cordu. In most cases, the male was the dominant. In families without a father, once the child reached adulthood, he would naturally take back the power to manage the entire family from his mother.

Very good.” Raymond had no doubt.

After walking around a few buildings, Lumian saw four old women sitting in front of a two-story house, basking in the sun and chatting casually.

At the same time, they sat close to each other to catch the body lice, appear quite leisurely.

In the countryside of the Intis Republic, catching lice with each other was a form of entertainment to get closer to each other and show intimacy.

“Are you sure?” Raymond hesitated.

He was afraid that the news of the two of them pursuing the truth of the legend would spread.

“Wait.” Lumian nodded heavily.

As far as he knew, many rumors in the village are produced through such a party and spread through the layers.

After a while, the other three old ladies left one after another because they still had work to do at home.

“Good morning, Na Roca.” Lumian walked over.

Na roca has white-haired, eyes slightly cloudy, she wore a dark dress made of coarse cloth, hands as if covered with a layer of skin, face has obvious spots.

“When will O’Lauer come out to the party? A lot of people in the village.” Naroka looked at Lumian and asked with a smile.

A lot of guys, huh? Lumian entered a state where he said what he wanted to say. He asked curiously,”

“Na roca, I heard that you have seen a real wizard? “I’m not the one who’s going to do it.”

Na roca expression slightly change:

“Who told you that?”

“I’ll tell you what,” he said. Lumian began to talk nonsense.

Na roca leng leng:

“Can the soul really go home?”

“It was my father who told me. Grandpa told me that when he was alive.” Raymond couldn’t stand Lumian lying to the old man.

Na roca was a little lost, separated for a long time to:

“Before that man died, none of us knew that he was a wizard. He behaved very normally.”

Just like you don’t know the Laurel is a wizard,”said Lumian in my heart.

“Until he died suddenly, and the owl came flying,” Naroka recalls.

What she said later was basically the same as the legend.

Lumian said,”

“Where did the wizard live?”

Na roca saw his one eye:

“That’s where you and Mr. Laurel live now.

” After the sorcerer was buried, the priest took some valuable things and burned down the house. For twenty to thirty years, no one dared to go near it. Later, this matter was gradually forgotten. Later, Orrell came and bought the land and rebuilt the house.”

Is our home? Lumi was shocked.

The answer was completely out of his expectations!

Instantly, he thought of some usually ignore the problem:

With Orlore’s ability to earn money and her hidden supernatural ability, why did she settle down in a village like Cordu Village?

Whether it was the provincial capital of Bigor, the textile center of Sucht, or the capital of Trier, they were all better choices. Even if one wanted to choose a place with a good environment and good air, those big cities also had certain areas to choose from.

Mr Lauer once said, the best hidden is hidden in the big cities,”Lou mia Ann thoughts rolling, difficult to calm.

He didn’t know today, Mr Lauer choose the land, the land to build houses, once belonged to a wizard, a little bit

“Where was the wizard buried?” Raymond could not help but ask.

The property in the house is not count on it, can only see the wizard’s body is there any special.

Na roca funny said:

“It’s a big deal, it’s a big deal.”

“At that time, everyone used nine cows to pull the coffin to the cemetery next to the church. The priest held a ceremony and purified the coffin. Finally, the corpse was burned to ashes and buried in a hole.”

“Well,” said Raymond, unable to hide his disappointment.

“What do you want to do?” Na roca studied his expression, ask.

Lumian laughed and said the truth, which was more like a lie.

“I want to see you.”

“Don’t be afraid.” Na roca warned 1.

Very good.” Lumian behaved obediently.

He and Raymond farewell roca, took to the road to the village square.

“There’s no hope, Lumian, there’s no hope.” After going around a building, Raymond said dejectedly.

“Indeed, everything that should have been burned has been burned, and everything that should have been taken away has been taken away for decades.” Lumian nodded.

Because of the dream, he wasn’t that disappointed.

Raymond agreed.

“Yes, in the whole legend, only the owl has not been destroyed.”

” Owl!” Lumian’s eyes lit up as he looked at the forest outside the village.

Raymond shuddered and quickly added,”

“But after so many years, it must have died long ago.”

He is very afraid of contact with the owl this evil creatures.

In the south of Intis, owls, nightingales, and crows were considered ominous, evil creatures who worked for the devil, often taking away human souls or bringing bad luck.
