Although Kia was a bit of a trouble, life still had to go on. Every day Kia still went to the Princess Retail Store to help. As for her accommodation, there were still a lot of rooms in the laboratory. However, since there was a third wheel there, whether it was training or daily life, especially being intimate with Athena, Chen Rui felt troublesome. He regretted accepting this task a little.
However, Chen Rui discovered one of Kia’s specialties, that was clothing design and production. Not only was her craftsmanship very delicate, but she was also creative. She modified several styles provided by Chen Rui and made them more beautiful. Chen Rui had a clever idea. He added a women’s clothing counter in the Princess Retail Store. The clothes would be using superior materials and elegant packaging. It was mainly targeted at the upper class aristocratic women.
The Princess Retail Store had successfully embarked on a path that symbolized nobility and taste. Today, the launch of this women’s clothing counter had gotten more sales than expected. Especially the limited edition ones which had caused the noble women to fight over it. The little loli was so happy that she couldn’t stop smiling.
When Chen Rui was ready to go to Silent Night Wetlands, the special agent sent by the Imperial City to assist in the investigation of Beelzebub finally reached the Dark Moon.
There were four main people who came to Dark Moon this time. From Chen Rui’s memory, two people had already come to the Dark Moon for the second time. The knight wearing a silver armor was called Sergey, the genius Great Demon of the Rus Family and the upstart of the Imperial City military. At first, Sergey accompanied Sandro to the Dark Moon to challenge Aldas. In the end, Sandro was poisoned to death by a “fart”, thus Sergey and others returned dejectedly.
The second lich was also an old acquaintance that the master challenged last time, Master Kemp. This master once used 50 purple crystal coins to win over Chen Rui in an attempt to use him to steal Aldas’ poison formula. At that time, 50 purple crystal coins were already a lot of money to Chen Rui. Now it seemed like Kemp was bullying this bumpkin apprentice who did not understand the market. If Aldas’ formula was real, even fifty black crystal coins could not buy it.
Among the other two, one was the dark goblin. Generally speaking, the dark goblin was the lowest class in the Demon Realm, even lower than the imp’s status. However, from the respectful attitude of the accompanying person, this dark goblin must be a master level character of certain aspect.
Among the visitors from the Imperial City, the most noticeable one was a stunningly beautiful woman.
The woman looked like she was in her early thirties. She had curly blond hair, and she wore a delicate silver crown on her head. Her indigo eyebrows were a little dark, and her green eyes sparkled with the light of autumn. Her sexy, slightly purplish lips showed a mature, beautiful and moving charm.
In terms of beauty, this woman was on par with Shea, but she had the opposite vibe. She was wearing a low-cut long dress with blue lace seams, and a seductive gully squeezed out between her two full hills. Her bare shoulders were covered with a translucent black veil; the indistinct appearance contained endless temptation, but this seduction was wrapped up in an inviolable nobility and grace, which tempted people even more.
Chen Rui, who was behind Shea, secretly gave the woman a high rating of 9 points. As for 8 points, that was Christina.
The woman’s gaze glanced past everyone’s stunned expression. Once she met eyes with Shea, it was as if the goddess of spring had met the goddess of ice and snow. A bunch of invisible electric sparks exploded in the collision of gazes.
Shea’s eyes were colder, but her actions were not rude. “Lady Isabella, Master Tata, Master Kemp, General Sergey, welcome to Dark Moon.”
Isabella seemed to be the head of the Imperial City visitors. She bowed as her lips forming a graceful smile. Her charming voice sounded. “It’s a great honor to see you again, Princess Royal Highness. Your Royal Highness has become more beautiful. Time flies so fast; the ignorant little girl from ten years ago has become the lord of an estate.”
Shea bowed her head slightly in return, saying, “Yes, time flies very fast. I remember that my lady was still the wife of General Takuman back then, but now she has become the wife of Bogans. The only thing that hasn’t changed is your unsurpassed beauty like a devil’s snare (also known as mandala flower that is beautiful but poisonous).”
Chen Rui secretly muttered. These two beauties don’t seem right. They haven’t seen each other for ten years, but they are provoking each other upon their first meeting.
“This must be Royal Highness Alice.” Isabella saw Alice beside Shea. “She truly is a cute little princess.”
Alice’s eyes fell on Isabella’s amazingly plump breasts, then an envious look appeared on her innocent face. “Sister… You are so beautiful there.”
When she called her sister at first, Isabella smiled very happily. After the second half of the sentence, the smile suddenly froze. As soon as that sentence came out, everyone’s eyes “took the chance” to focus on that “pretty” part in response to the little princess’ summon.
Shea frowned. “Alice! You are so rude. Apologize to the lady quickly!”
“It’s very beautiful.” Alice pursed her mouth grievously, and tears seemed to be flashing in her big eyes. “I love that necklace…”
Everyone suddenly realized that she was talking about the necklace! Out of agreement with the little princess, they all used “appreciative” eyes to look at the necklace a few more times. Of course, most of them focused on the part below the necklace.
Chen Rui knew that Alice did it on purpose. He saw this trick the first time he met this blackhearted loli. The icy royal sister and the blackhearted loli VS the sexy, mature woman; the home team won the first round.
Isabella recovered in an instant. She paid no mind to the eyes around her and said generously, “Thank you for your compliment, Royal Highness. Sister will gift you a beautiful necklace later.”
Alice immediately stopped crying and smiled. “Thank you, sister!”
After this episode, the group came to the council hall of the Dark Moon Palace. After a simple welcoming ceremony, Shea introduced them one by one.
Chen Rui already learned about these people from Shea yesterday.
Isabella was the most famous beauty of the Fallen Angel Emperor Imperial City, known as the Imperial City’s Flower, also known as Lady Devil’s Snare. The Demon Realm’s devil’s snare was a well-known poisonous flower. Its appearance was very beautiful, but it contained terrible toxins. After being made into some kind of potion, it could make people addicted and willing to abandon oneself step by step under its toxicity.
This Lady Devil’s Snare remarried several times, but her husbands did not live long. The most recent marriage was to the son of Prime Minister Elton, Bogans, but she soon became a widow again. Although she was a woman, she had an extensive network, superior means, and the obsidian prince’s deepest trust. Her current status was financial advisor, assisting the Finance Minister Legu to manage the economy and finances of the entire empire. It was said that the Finance Minister Legu was just an imaginary figure; the one truly in charge was this beautiful devil’s snare. There were also rumors that Isabella was actually the mistress of Regent Obsidian. In any case, she was one of the empire’s authoritative figures.
The dark goblin, Tata was a well-known master of the Mechanic Association. He was proficient in manufacturing magic tools. He was stateless person. Although he had no nationality, all three empires treated him as an honored guest. One reason was to respect Tata’s superb skills, and the other was to give face to the Mechanic Association. The Mechanic Association and the Potioneer Association was collectively referred to as the Alchemist Association, but because the two branches of alchemy, manufacturing and potion making, had very different technical scopes, they were two completely independent alliances. Manufacturing was more difficult. The number of mechanic masters was less than that of potioneer masters, and they were more valued to a certain extent.
This time, it seemed that Master Tata just followed Isabella to the Dark Moon as he was just on the way to the Dark Moon. He had nothing to do with investigating the Beelzebub Royal Family. Master Kemp was one of the special agents. As a potioneer master, his real motive was worth pondering. Sergey’s father, Doren Rus, was one of the three Empire Generals, second only to Athena’s father, George Wells. He was the earliest Empire General to defect to the Obsidian Prince. Both father and son were deeply regarded by the Regent. Master Kemp quickly recognized Chen Rui, who was next to Shea, as the human apprentice who took 50 purple crystal coins without reporting back. When he heard Shea said that this guy was actually the new sheriff in Dark Moon City, he was immediately taken aback. He put away the thought of “accusing”. Even Isabella couldn’t help but take one more look at Chen Rui. The only one who didn’t respond was Master Tata. To be precise, the dark goblin master focused his attention on the crystal in his hand since the beginning, playing with it as if nobody was around. Whether it was Princess Shea, Lady Isabella, or the human sheriff, they were not as attractive as this inconspicuous crystal. Sergey openly mocked him, “Is there really no one else available in Dark Moon? The sheriff is actually a powerless human!”
Chen Rui looked ashamed. He lowered his head and secretly activated <Analytical Eyes>, displaying Sergey’s information. Race: Great Demon (mutated). Comprehensive strength: D-.
This Sergey was naturally arrogant and looked down on everyone. He was horribly defeated by Athena in the Emperor Swordsmanship Competition five years ago. When he followed Sandro and his party to the Dark Moon, he was challenged by Athena and almost ruined Sandro’s “important matter” to challenge Aldas. As someone of the same age as Athena, being able to reach Higher Demon level made him live up to the word genius.
When he first came to Dark Moon, Sergey must not have been a Higher Demon. It was likely that he broke through recently. However, Athena was now quickly approaching the later stage Demon King. She could even become Great Demon King in half a year, while the latter was not comparable at all.
The dark goblin’s race also prompted mutated. The comprehensive strength was E+ which was the later stage Intermediate Demon. Master Kemp was a middle stage Intermediate Demon.
Isabella. Race: Sloth Royal Family. Comprehensive strength: B+.
Isabella and Roman were both of the Belphegor Royal Family!
Chen Rui was taken aback. According to Shea, Isabella was an important member of the Lucifer Royal Family. Why does it appear as Sloth Royal Family in <Analytical Eyes>?
<Analytical Eyes> should not make mistakes. Is there a problem with Shea’s intelligence? Or there is a problem with Isabella? Chen Rui bowed his head silently with doubts.
Alice saw Sergey publicly humiliating Chen Rui and her impression of this Imperial City General immediately dropped to the lowest point. As she was about to speak, she heard Shea’s cold voice. “General Sergey, in any case, Sheriff Chen Rui represents our Dark Moon, please watch your words.”
In the face of Shea, Sergey didn’t dare to be too impudent. He sneered, but didn’t mock him anymore. However, the condescending look in his eyes did not retract in the slightest.
Isabella spoke, “As far as I know, this Chen Rui’s journey to get the sheriff position was dramatic, but Sir Chen Rui is the only disciple of Master Aldas. He must excel in some way. Well, before we discuss how to deal with the Beelzebub Royal Family, let’s hear Master Tata’s motive for the visit this time. Master Tata? Master?”
In doing so, Isabella expressed her respect for Master Tata. However, she shouted several times, but the dark goblin was still playing with the crystal in his hands, as if he had not heard anything. Many people felt irritated simultaneously, as if it was a sin for Master Tata to ignore a beauty like Isabella.
Only a certain loli gloated with a smile. Hmph, what is so great about having big breasts?
