“There are not only injuries on my body but curses! Eve and Alian have poison and curse in their bodies, which definitely cannot be cured by normal potions. Don’t ask me why or how, just know the three ways to lift the curse.” Skye sighed. “These three things are very rare, namely the fountain of life, fountain of vitality and the flower of mist. “
When Chen Rui heard the fountain of life, his heart moved, but he never heard of the other two. He immediately asked cautiously, “Do these three antidotes have to be used together or can they work separately?”
The fountain of life can lift Eve and Alian’s poison curse, and the fountain of vitality and the flower of the mist shadow are the keys to dispel the curse on my body. However, my vitality has been consumed by some secret technique. As long as you can find the fountain of life and free my two daughters from pain, I can help you make two pieces of equipment first.”
Chen Rui thought about it and decided to confirm it. He said, “I heard the teacher talk about the fountain of life. I think it loses effectiveness within half an hour after leaving its source. I don’t know if this is it…”
Skye was shocked and seemed very emotional. He said quickly, “This is the kind of fountain of life I require! I have a magic bottle here, which can contain the fountain of life for three months.”
“Give me the magic bottle.” Chen Rui knew what it was, but he could not expose the power of the galaxy garden in front of Skye. He said, “I will immediately seek out my teacher to ask about the whereabouts of the fountain of life. I’m sure I won’t be kicked out for just asking only.”
Skye said nothing and threw the bottle to Chen Rui. Chen Rui took out a piece of hydra skin. “There are two pieces of hydra skin in total, which can be considered my mortgage. And these few bottles of medicine, consider it as a gift to Eve and Alian. Sir, please don’t reject it. After all, Alian’s poison curse was just triggered again. Please don’t blame her for her words; she’s just a child.”
Skye expressed gratitude and nodded without pretentiousness.
Chen Rui left the Cloak Gang and rushed toward the arena.
Skye’s mechanica master identity was an unexpected gain. The reason why the father and daughters were cursed was certainly not simple, but for now, it was not the time to investigate. He could give Skye the fountain of life at any time, but the key to this deal was watching the creation process. At present, the most important role of <Deep Analysis> was to crack the “God-Eating Mask”. He had to wait until at least after the mask was completely cracked to release extra mental power to “imprint” the leather armor making skill.
Back in the arena, he saw Athena and the others waiting for him. It turned out that Royce had rushed back overnight.
This time Royce went to the Red Spirit Estate secretly. After many setbacks, he finally found the place where the treasure was buried. With his bloodline power as the key, he obtained the secret treasure as expected.
Royce took out a box and handed it over respectfully. Chen Rui opened it to see. It was a silver necklace with a blue gem in the center. The necklace was also dotted with blue light. It looked simple and elegant, but it was the secret treasure of the Sloth Royal Family, “Evil Blue Tear”.
“Evil Blue Tear” looked better than “Dark Will”, but it was just a more quaint necklace. It did not have the power fluctuations. It was seriously inconsistent with the title of “The Sloth Royal Family’s greatest treasure below the artifact”.
Chen Rui initially wanted to try its effect, but no matter how he looked at it, the necklace was for females. He couldn’t lower his dignity to put it on in front of Athena and a few maids, so he had to find an excuse to slip into underground to try it. Athena’s laughter came behind him.
After reaching the room on the basement floor, Chen Rui put on the necklace without hesitation. The moment he put on the necklace, he had a wonderful feeling. It felt like some kind of heat flow was spreading out in all directions, circulating around the body, and finally retracted into the blue gem in the center.
Chen Rui had an idea. He felt his mental power began to focus quickly, and the focusing speed and quality were better than usual. He tried to combine it with the power of the elemental heart and activated <Deep Analysis>. Sure enough, he felt more proficient than usual. In the automatic analysis prompt, it was recommended that the number of times per day had changed from “two” to “three”. After completing <Deep Analysis> three times, there was no sign of mental exhaustion. However, after about an hour he felt particularly fatigued. It seemed that the enhancement of the Evil Blue Tear had a certain limit, which was not as good as the elemental heart’s wonder. However, for Chen Rui who urgently needed mental energy to increase the number of times of analysis, it was completely acceptable.
After three consecutive analyses, the analysis progress of the mask increased by 2%. The effect was not bad. Following this progress, the “God-Eating Mask” could be completely cracked in less than one month.
As for the fountain of vitality and the flower of mist, he left it to Royce to use Joseph’s intelligence network to investigate. There was no rush anyway.
A few days passed. After the appearance of the Beelzebub Royal Family, another piece of shocking news came from Dark Moon.
Princess Royal Shea suddenly dispatched imperial guards which was led personally by Commander Kaguron. Using the routine schedule to collect minerals as a cover, they launched a surprise attack on the bandits in Mountain Xilang.
Although the bandits were caught by surprise, under the leadership of the bandit leader, they still did not panic and began to fight back with tenacity. At this time, another key figure that surprised everyone in Mountain Xilang. It was the former mining officer Tim Saiful who had been missing for two years.
Tim rescued the miners imprisoned by the bandits at Mountain Walan, and cooperated with Kaguron to successfully poison the bandit leader. They eventually defeatedp the bandits, and the bandit leader left in defeat.
Currently, Tim had returned to Dark Moon City along with the current mining officer, Chen Rui. Compared to the wit and bravery of the previous mining officer, the human mining officer could only be described by the word lucky.
The story went like this. Chen Rui, who was initially sent to Mountain Xilang, barely escaped from death. After arriving, he avoided getting hunted by the bandits. If it were not for Miss Athena’s protection, the first female swordsman of the Dark Moon, he would have died. However, the human were extremely lucky. As he was on the verge of getting caught, he happened to meet Tim who had been in the underground world below the mine for two years and successfully escaped.
Tim entrusted the human to rush back to the Dark Moon to report it. Hence, Princess Royal Shea made an immediate decision and sent troops to Mountain Xilang. Sure enough, they succeeded in one go.
The good news of Mountain Xilang’s victory greatly excited the Dark Moon military and civilians. The initial fear of the Beelzebub Royal Family had been greatly reduced. For the Saiful Family, it was a big surprise. When they learned that their only child who had been missing for two years and was confirmed to be dead, was suddenly “resurrected”, the family elder, Old Ford cried. When the father and son met, it was a touching scene.
After this battle, Tim became renowned. The whole city was preaching his heroic deeds. Even the “legendary stories” of conquering various demonic beasts in the underground world were spoken vividly, as if they witnessed it with their own eyes.
On the other hand, using Royce’s magic messenger, Chen Rui contacted Joseph “urgently”.
Joseph was initially in “closed cultivation”, using the power of devil fruit to force through the bottleneck. Because this matter was not trivial, he had to interrupt his cultivation.
“My friend, do you feel like the changes cannot keep up with our plans? Dark Moon is about to hold an emergency meeting. I believe that Princess Royal has sent someone to inform you,” Chen Rui said calmly.
“Yes, I’ve received the meeting notification from Royce.” Joseph’s face was a little grim. “I never expected that Tim to be alive. I might be in trouble this time.”
“I know some of your troubles, but the one with the biggest headache in the Red Spirit Estate is still Kanita. Has his subordinate Snowden escaped back to Red Spirit Estate?”
Joseph shook his head. “Not yet, but I have heard rumors that Snowden is in Town Leia. Tim’s sudden appearance is really unexpected. Due to Town Leia’s hostility to Red Spirit estate and this time’s failure, it will be difficult to regain control of the Dark Moon’s west side.”
“With Dark Moon’s current situation, even if the trades with the Shadow Empire is restored, the fundamental problem still cannot be solved. The commercial road cannot be opened in a day or two. Furthermore, what fool would come to such a place?” Chen Rui let out indifferent laughter. “As for how to control, just let your father worry about it. This time, the responsibility happened to be pushed to Kanita. Who asked Snowden to be his subordinate?”
Joseph smiled. “You’re right, my friend, but there is one more thing right now. Hearing Royce’s report, the Saiful Family wants to take this opportunity to suppress me and put Tim in the finance officer position. However, this is obviously impossible to do. Their true target is the sheriff position.”
“I have also heard the news, and I would like to remind you that even under the same forces, the conflicts and fights between the new and old forces are still unavoidable, just like… you and Kanita. I heard that you have an interesting wager with the current mining officer?”
Joseph was tacful. He understood the “intention” of this reminder. His eyes flashed, and he asked, “You mean…”
“It seems that you have already understood it, for example… the Cloak Gang, the imperial guard reserve forces, is also one of the emerging forces. And there is still a small purposely-fostered friendship between me and that human.”
“My friend, you’re really too cunning.” Joseph paused for a moment and revealed a knowing smile. “With your support, I believe the internal conflicts on the Princess Royal’s side will become even more chaotic.”
Chen Rui laughed together. His tone suddenly changed. “Oh right, there is one more thing I want to tell you first. The Gorefiend Gang of the Mellon Family seems to be quite dissatisfied with the Cloak Gang. I plan to completely eliminate them and take control of Dark Moon’s potential forces at one go.”
Joseph hesitated a little and said, “The Mellon Family is just an unreliable fence-sitter. It may lean to the stronger side at any time. The main target is currently my father. If this is a part of your plan, then I don’t have any opinion.”
“Very well. This is indeed a part of the plan. Soon, you will see the true effect of control.” Chen Rui nodded. “Okay, communication time is almost up. You will be returning to Dark Moon soon anyway. If there is a chance, we will meet up to talk. Although it is a pity that you interrupted your training, I believe that it is only a matter of time before you break through the bottleneck.”
Joseph smiled slightly. The image of magical messaging faded gradually.
Chen Rui came to the lobby and issued an order.
“Vasasha, immediately notify Jesse to gather some forces in the Cloak Gang to go all out tonight and eliminate the Gorefiend Gang! Arux, I leave the leader of Gorefiend Gang, Wick to you.”
Arux was gently wiping the dark star iron scythe in his hand with a silk cloth. After hearing that, a bloodthirsty gaze appeared in his red eyes.
Tonight was destined to be a night of massacre.
Joseph really thought their plan was going well, but he didn’t know the forces in the Dark Moon were slowly controlled by Chen Rui.
