Chapter 15 Rhetoric | The Owl Enigma: Secrets, Lies, and Supernatural Shadows in Kordu Village

That owl?

That owl in the wizard legend?

Thoughts flashed through Lumian’s mind like lightning, and the blood in his body seemed to be frozen in an instant.

At this moment, he was more frightened than when he saw the monster with three faces.

After all, this is reality, and the ruins are a dream.

Even if you die in the dream, reality will die with you. After all, there is still a layer of psychological separation.

“What should we do?

“Will Aurore be affected?

“…”

While Lumian was trying his best to think of countermeasures, the owl made no other movements and looked at him quietly, as if it was conducting some kind of inspection. .

After a few seconds, the owl spread its wings and flew towards the distant mountains and forests.

On the way, it glided downwards and disappeared somewhere in Kordu Village.

It wasn’t until the owl could no longer be seen that Lumian calmed down.

He sat down on the chair and raised his hand to touch his forehead.

It was all wet with sweat.

“Is it really that owl in the wizarding legend?

“Has it really lived for so many years?

“Anyway, it is different from other owls. Its eyes are not dull, and it is more like a human being…

“If it is really that owl, why can it fly? Outside my window because I wanted to investigate the wizarding legend? But we have given up…

“It looked at me a few times and then left…

“I don’t know if it will come again. , will it affect Aurore…”

Because nothing happened for the time being, Lumian wanted to observe it for a few more days, but considering that it might affect Aurore, he felt You can’t hide it from your sister.

After leaving the room, he saw that Aurore hadn’t gotten up yet. He went down to the first floor and made breakfast, which was all his sister’s favorite food:

Soft-boiled omelettes, pancakes with frosting, plain toast with jam…

It’s time to make noodles, this time with meat sauce… Lumian saw that the grid for noodles was empty. I lost it and decided to replenish it in the next two days.

This is Aurore’s favorite staple food.

Aurore was wearing a nightgown and rubbing her blond hair. When I walked down the stairs, food was already placed on the kitchen table.

“Morning. ” She covered her mouth and yawned.

Lumian smiled and said:

“It’s late.

“Don’t you always say that the day’s plan starts in the early morning?”

“Yes, my plan is to sleep.” Aurore sat down , with milk, for breakfast.

Lumian sat down across the six-person table, munching pancakes and said casually:

“I have been tracking down those in the village these days. The truth of the legend.”

“Why?” Aurore asked.

Lumian was very frank:

“Didn’t you agree to help me obtain extraordinary power? I just thought that with my own efforts, there might be something hidden in those legends. “There are clues.”

“It’s almost impossible.” Aurore commented casually, “Those legends have either been adapted over several generations and have changed beyond recognition, or they were written down by some people when they had hallucinations. It’s meaningless, well, it could also be someone who specially made up a story as an excuse, haha, and the contribution of a fun-loving person like you.”

“What?” Lumian couldn’t hear it. Understand what Aurore means by “fun people”.

This is not even Intis.

“The full name is Prank Lover.” Aurore explained simply, then frowned, “You suddenly said this to me because you got into trouble, and you didn’t know how to go home and tell your sister Did you ask for help?”

“It was an accident, but it wasn’t enough to cause trouble.” Lumian said confidently.

He organized the following speech:

“My first target is the wizard legend.”

“What wizard? Legend?” Aurore looked confused.

“You haven’t heard of it?” Lumian was quite surprised. “A long time ago, a man in the village died suddenly. When he was buried, an owl flew over and landed on him. The body did not fly away until the body was lifted. After that, the body became very heavy and it took nine oxen to pull the coffin. Only then did the villagers know that the man was a wizard in life.”

Aurore listened carefully:

“I really didn’t notice such a legend before.”

Unscientific… Lumian couldn’t believe it .

Although Aurore stays at home most of the time, she still goes out a few days a month to chat with Naroka and other old ladies, tell stories to children, and learn about science. She was very familiar with all the rumors in Erdu Village. How could she not have heard of this wizard legend that many people knew?

Moreover, this house was built on the wizard’s original home!

Lumian had previously suspected that the reason why Aurore chose to settle in Kordu Village was to get the wizard’s treasure, and successfully obtained extraordinary power based on it.

“Then what?” Aurore asked calmly.

Lumian answered truthfully:

“We asked the elders in the village to confirm that this incident really happened, but it has been decades, and The wizard’s house has been burned down by the church, and the land is the one you bought.”

“Really?” Aurore was obviously a little surprised, “I just said, they sold me There must be something wrong with the fact that the price of this piece of land is cheaper than normal… I thought my sweet mouth would make the old ladies happy…”

She thought for a while and then said: a> I can rest assured that you are prepared… Lumian lowered his head and said crisply: “Fortunately, it seems that the other party has no ill intentions at present, and the problem should be solved relatively well. ” “I told you, pursuing extraordinary power is very dangerous. Let’s see, trouble is coming! Having said this, she smiled angrily: “During this period, you are not allowed to leave the village, and you are not allowed to leave home after dark until I investigate. Understand the situation.” Aurore thought for a while and said slowly: “I’m not sure, but it’s really different from an ordinary owl.” Lumian answered from an objective perspective. “Are you sure?” Aurore looked a little solemn. “Because all the clues have been interrupted, we have given up on this matter. Who knows, when I woke up this morning, I saw out the window There is an owl, which is very similar to the owl in the legend.” He continued: “Yes, the ashes were buried in the cemetery next to the church.” Lumian nodded.

“The wizard’s body was burned by the church?”

“Sister, I was wrong.”

He immediately changed the subject:

“Have your pen pals responded to your letters?” “Good morning, my cabbages.” Lumian stepped forward, opened his arms, and greeted with a bright smile: After a while, Ryan and the others came out, ready to continue walking in Kordu Village and find someone to “chat” with. Trout rolls, wine, mayonnaise bread… I ate quite well… Lumian observed for a few seconds and exited the old tavern without disturbing Liya and the others. As expected by Lumian, the three foreigners occupied a table in the tavern and had breakfast. He knew that the lady who gave him the tarot cards should not have gotten up yet. This time he was looking for three foreigners, Ryan, Liya and Valentine. Lumian stood there and looked at it. The entrance to the old tavern. ……… He didn’t care too much, after all, Aurore often used some strange words. Doesn’t mail mean letters and packages sent through the post office? Lumian didn’t quite understand.

“How can it be that fast? It’s not like generating electricity, uh, mail!” Aurore said “ha”. Uh, they are wearing exactly the same clothes as they were a few days ago… They went out and didn’t bring much change of clothes? Lumian noticed that Liya was still wearing a pleated cashmere tight skirt, a white coat and Marcel boots. There were two small silver bells on the veil that served as a hat and on the boots. Ryan was still wearing the same brown tweed. He wears a jacket and light yellow trousers, and a simple dark round hat on his head. Likewise, Valentine still looks like she has powdered hair and makeup on her face. “Good morning, Lumian, what’s the matter?” Ryan asked calmly. “You are my friends. I will come to visit you even if I have nothing to do.” Lumian looked aggrieved. He turned to ask: “I see you have been chatting with people in the village these days. Do you want to ask about something?< a i=22> “You can come to me, my cabbages, I am your friend, you can ask me if you have any questions! ” “We can’t believe your answer. “Valentine couldn’t help but speak. Ryan glanced sideways at him to signal him to calm down. Lumian smiled: < a i=26> “Then you can completely believe other people’s answers? ” Liya was a little speechless for a moment, Ryan thought for a while and said: “Actually, we can’t completely believe it. We will base it on different people’s answers and our own observations. Make a comprehensive judgment on the situation. ” “That’s right. Lumian spread his hands, “Then it wouldn’t be a bad thing to listen to my answer. At least it’s a reference.” ” Ryan was silent for a moment, and instinctively glanced left and right. In the early morning in Kordu Village, there were many people going to the farmland, and those near the old tavern Almost not. “That’s right. “Ryan considered the words and said, “Let’s find someone here. ” “My priest? ” Lumian asked with a smile. Ryan shook his head: “No. “We visited the priest to find that person.” “Who?” Lumian showed an interested expression, “I know everyone in the village. Knowing each other should be able to help.” Ryan was not happy about this: “Actually, we don’t know who that person is, how old he is, and how long he is. What does it look like? “Some time ago, we received a letter from the village of Kordu without a signature. We now want to find the person who wrote the letter. ” Informer? Such an idea flashed through Lumian subconsciously. He pretended to be confused and said: “You are because After that letter came to the village, that person didn’t look for you? ” “No. “Liya answered for Ryan. “Maybe he still lacks a little sense of security and doesn’t trust you very much? Lumian was very involved and enthusiastic in helping guess, “Can’t you judge based on the content of the letter?” ” What he wants to know more is what is written in that letter. If it is the priest and his group, then he will be happy to see the result. But if Aurore was involved, he would have to urge his sister to move quickly. After all, Aurore often corresponded with her “pen pals”. If any of the “pen pals” were caught, she would probably be implicated, and the clue would be that letter.
