In the evening, there were several single figures at the side door of the Custer Family’s residence.
Chen Rui wanted to go alone, but after Kia knew, she was worried about his safety and insisted on going together.
“After the Custer Family’s affair is completed, I’ll return to the Dark Moon. If you really like me and want the best for me, don’t look for me.”
“The Dark Shadow Empire isn’t safe. I think you should go to the Bloody Empire and get support directly from the Demon Realm’s strongest man, Raizen the Great. With your skills and reputation, you’ll definitely be valued by Emperor Raizen. Don’t ask why. I won’t harm you.”
Chen Rui, who was sitting in the carriage, was frowning as he thought about what Kia said to him just now along the way.
What is Kia signing? Dark Shadow Empire isn’t safe, and I should go to the Bloody Empire? This kind reminder is also a refusal to confess something. She still intends to return to Dark Moon. Then, Dark Moon must be the location of her mission, and she is likely under certain control.
“We’re here.” Celine’s words interrupted Chen Rui’s thoughts. The carriage stopped, and they had already reached the southern suburbs.
The three of them walked off the carriage and walked a long way. They saw a large house surrounded by walls at a hillside in front of them. This should be the place that Old Gauss “slept” as mentioned by Celine.
The place was relatively remote which was probably one of Celine’s secret bases. No wonder no one found out.
The house was getting closer and closer. Under the moonlight, the guard at the door could already be seen. It was a woman.
Kia could clearly see the woman’s appearance. Her body suddenly stiffened, and she grasped Chen Rui’s hand. Chen Rui was taken aback for the heavy strength Kia used. Besides, from her hand, he could feel that her entire body was shaking as if she saw something terrifying.
Kia’s finger moved, writing forcefully at his palm: Run!
At that time, the guard entered the scope of [Analytical Eyes] that Chen Rui activated. Race: Great Demon (Mutated); Comprehensive Strength Assessment: C-.
A Guard at the early stage of Demon King?
With Chen Rui’s current strength, Demon King wasn’t anything, but Kia’s reaction… Does she know this guard?
Chen Rui thought about it and immediately said, “Wait, Ms. Celine, I suddenly remembered that I left something important at the alternative residence. Can we go back to take it first?”
“What is it?” Celine looked at Chen Rui with a smile, “I’ll ask someone to get it for master.”
Celine’s strange smile made Chen Rui feel even strongly that something was wrong. It is indeed a trap.
At that moment, another strange woman’s voice sounded.
“Since you’re already here, are you still trying to escape?”
Chen Rui felt that Kia’s hand trembled again. She seemed to be familiar with the voice, and she was very scared.
The thin mist in front suddenly became thicker while a few figures condensed which gradually became clearer.
Their leader was a young woman in her 20s; she had blue hair and eyes. Race: Envy Royal Family Comprehensive Strength Assessment: C+. Physique: C; Strength: C; Spirit: C+; Agility: C+.
The Leviathan girl is at the peak of Demon King! Why is Kia so scared?
Behind the girl was a tall, bulky woman who was actually a Great Demon King. Race: Gluttony Royal Family; Comprehensive Strength Assessment: B-. Physique: B-; Strength: B-, Spirit: B-; Agility: B-.
There were also several mutated Great Demon, which were all between early to middle stage Demon King. They were all women. Celine walked over and stood behind these people; she was obviously part of the gang.
Chen Rui’s eyes narrowed slightly. Gluttony Royal Family! Other than Glorfin, it’s my first time encountering another Beelzebub Royal Family. Besides, she is even together with the Envy Royal Family!
“Look at who this is? So surprising.” The blue-eyed girl looked beautiful, but her tone seemed contemptuous and nasty, “It really is you, Kia.”
Kia let go of Chen Rui’s hand and lowered her head, “Ms. Fatilu.”
“I heard from Celine that Master Arthur was fascinated by a succubus named Kia, but I didn’t expect it to really be you.” Fatilu’s eyes turned cold, “That being said, you shouldn’t appear in the Dark Shadow Empire right? You’re so bold to actually leave there without permission.”
“I’m sorry, Ms. Fatilu, I was only temporarily brought to the Dark Shadow Empire, and I didn’t have any time to report it. Please forgive me.” Kia lowered her head and said with a begging tone.
Chen Rui could tell that Fatilu must be related to Kia’s secret. Also, her position was much higher than Kia. They were probably from the same closed, secret organization. He replied immediately, “Ms. Fatilu, for you to lure me here using Celine, it isn’t just to gather with your old mates right?”
“This must be Master Arthur.” Fatilu smiled, “Master is in the limelight this time and your name is popular throughout the entire Demon Realm. Even Master Horford, who I specially invited, isn’t comparable to you. Unfortunately, the rise of master ruined a little plan of mine. So, I came here deliberately this time to take a glimpse of the trio-specialized master’s glory.”
Chen Rui had a sudden realization. It turns out that there is such a force behind Celine. No wonder she could find a dual-specialized master like Horford!
The “ruined plan” that Fatilu mentioned must be similar to Princess Royal, Shea’s plan. It was to use Celine to control the top business family in the Dark Shadow Empire to achieve a certain purpose of this organization.
Kia from Dark Moon, the dual-specialized master Horford who was probably the disciple of Nate, the best mechanic master in the Demon Realm (information obtained from the Mechanic Alliance), Celine from the Custer family… These elements are just the tip of the iceberg. It seems that this force isn’t simple. With the control of such a force, Celine can ascend as the head of family even without relying on me. The reason why I’m lured here must be for the title of trio-specialized mechanic master.
“I don’t have any glory to look at. Sorry to disappoint you, Ms. Fatilu.” Chen Rui glanced at Celine, “Ms. Celine must’ve reported all my information to Ms. Fatilu. I don’t like beating around the bushes. Let’s get straight to the point.”
“Master is truly a straightforward person. Then, I’ll go straight to the point.” Fatilu nodded, “I want to invite master to a place as a guest. I hope master can agree.”
Chen Rui shrugged, “If I don’t agree, will you “help” me agree?”
“Master is really an interesting person.” Fatilu laughed politely, “Rest assured, master. I have absolutely no bad intentions. Perhaps, master might even receive many unexpected benefits.”
“Fine.” Chen Rui sighed, “I have a condition. I’ll go with you alone, but you have to let Kia and Old Gauss in the house leave.”
“Did master really fall in love with this cheap woman?” Fatilu smiled more coldly, “You’re actually willing to exchange her with yourself?”
Kia shuddered. When Chen Rui heard Fatilu’s insults against Kia, he frowned, “It’s just that I have my own plan. This request shouldn’t be too much right?”
“It’s not too much. However, I don’t agree.” Fatilu said coldly, “Master, don’t forget that you don’t have the right to request. As for this lowly succubus… since young, she is only qualified to lick my shoes. Don’t you think so? My… elder sister?”
Chen Rui was shocked. Kia is actually Fatilu’s sister!
Fatilu was a Leviathan Royal Family while Kia was a succubus. In other words, Kia’s father should be a Leviathan Royal Family while her mother was a succubus. Since Demon Realm had no mixed blood, the children would be the race of either parent. Therefore, Kia and Fatilu weren’t of the same race.
Even if they are different races, Fatilu’s words and behaviors are too much since they are still blood-related sisters afterall! Kia is likely to be bullied by Fatilu since young, so she is so scared.
Kia was still lowering her head and said nothing.
“Peasant, isn’t it?” Fatilu screamed aggressively, “Answer me in front of master!”
“Yes, Ms. Fatilu.” Kia nodded with a blank face.
One was “peasant” and the other was “miss”. He could tell from their appellations. Are they still sisters? A little chillness appeared in Chen Rui’s eyes.
Fatilu’s eyes became even fiercer. Ever since she could remember, the concept of elder sister in her mind was “lowly”. Whatever Kia liked, even a stone, she would ruthlessly destroy it.
After witnessing Arthur’s feelings for Kia with her own eyes, she couldn’t stand it. Why did the Demon Realm’s only trio-specialized genius master fancy that lowly succubus?!
What she wanted to do now was to humiliate this bitch and destroy the dignity of her elder sister in front of master. She wanted to destroy the image of this peasant in the master’s mind and made Arthur completely disappointed at Kia.
Fatilu’s brutal smile made her beautiful face distorted, “Pew!” She spat on the ground and said wickedly, “Then, crawl like a bitch and lick it clean now!”
Kia’s body was trembling slightly. The corner of her mouth was already bleeding from her bites, but she didn’t move.
Behind Fatilu, the Great Demon King woman from the Beelzebub Royal Family looked like a subordinate, but she didn’t stop nor convince Fatilu. Instead, like all the other people, she looked like she was gloating. She was even smirking, seemingly used to the situation.
Fatilu smiled creepily, “If you don’t lick, then I’ll have your lowly mother do the same.”
It turns out that Fatilu and Kia have different mothers! Chen Rui finally understood and the coldness in his eyes had turned into murderousness.
Hearing Fatiro’s threat, Kia shuddered again. She squeezed her fist, struggled for a while in her heart and finally bent down slowly. Suddenly, her body was stopped as she was pulled by someone.
Feeling Chen Rui’s undisguised murderous intention, Kia was startled and quickly pulled his hand, indicating that he shouldn’t be impulsive.
That detail fell into Fatilu’s eyes and her heart was filled with even more jealousy. She sneered, “Master, I advise you not to act rashly. You haven’t figured out the difference in strength…”
At that moment, the Great Demon King-level Beelzebub woman behind suddenly looked triggered and stepped to the front of Fatilu.
Immediately after, Fatilu felt a horrifying murderous intention coming toward her. Then, two figures suddenly collided in front of her eyes. As they met and separated, everything was vague. Messy clashing noises sounded continuously, and the ground also couldn’t stop trembling.
The two figures were separated again. It was her most powerful guard, Tapuli that actually had a blade wound on her face that slowly dripped fresh blood. The scary murderousness from the opposite was getting stronger. The mechanic master didn’t have any weapons. However, his hand gleamed faintly and emitted a terrifying sharpness like a godly weapon.
There was an indescribable shock in Fatilu’s heart: Tapuli is an elite under my father, a Great Demon King powerhouse that is proficient in both magic and physical. No matter how genius this guy is, he’s just a master who devotes himself to the study of mechanics. Yet, he can actually suppress Tapuli!
Kia was also stunned. Initially, she was worried that this man couldn’t get away. Now, it seemed that her worry was for nothing. Celine was the most frightened among them. She wanted to lure Arthur here and defeat this mechanic master without failure with the extraordinary strength of Fatilu’s party. Yet, she never expected this would be the case!
“Ms. Fatilu! Be careful!” The breath from Tapuli’s body was soaring. She shouted, “He is a Great Demon King, and his combat power is shocking!”
Tapuli’s words made Fatilu shivered: A Great Demon King, and he is even being described to have “shocking” combat power by someone as strong as Tapuli?
At once, Fatilu couldn’t bother humiliating Kia. She quickly stepped back under the protection of several Demon King-level guards.
Chen Rui’s eyes flashed like a sharp blade. With several punches, he knocked Tapuli back and took advantage of the momentum to pounce toward Fatilu.
Tapuli was shaken back. Seeing that she could stop him, she waved her hand and a lightning struck Chen Rui’s back, trying to stop his action.
Unexpectedly, Chen Rui only flicked a little and didn’t seem to be greatly affected. He continued to pounce toward Fatilu without losing speed.
After he was promoted to Migrez state, the passive characteristic, [Anti-Magic] could reduce magic damage. Together with the initial [Damage Absorption] that reduced 30% of damage, the damage of the lightning was reduced to the minimal. It couldn’t produce the expected effect.
The few Demon King guards noticed the situation was bad, so they ignited their amplification flame and rushed toward Chen Rui recklessly.
The scene where Fatilu threatened and insulted Kia while everyone laughed just now appeared in Chen Rui’s mind. Although he didn’t like to hurt women, he was determined to take the lives of these people now, so he was merciless. Wherever the [Aura Blade] went, the guards’ blood splattered before they got close.
In the blink of an eye, the five guards were all eliminated.
Demon King-level strength was nothing in the face of the fierce attack from Great Demon King.
Yet, the guards’ obstruction still played a role. Tapuli who came to aid had arrived. She cast Beelzebub Royal Family’s talent – [Decelerate]. Chen Rui’s action was suddenly slowed, but he was still faster than Tapuli’s expectation.
Fatilu was at the peak of Demon King after all. Besides, she was a Leviathan Royal Family. Her right eye immediately glowed with a faint dark light. Chen Rui felt his movement was paused as if the air around him was frozen.
That trick was called [Space Compression], a controlling skill of [Eye of Incubus]. He experienced it a few times during training from Delia, so he didn’t panic. He gathered his strength slightly and exploded to burst out of the [Eye of Incubus]’s constraint forcefully.
Fatilu screamed as if she was struck by thunder. Blood was flowing out of her right eye.
Could Kia be the spy sent by the Bloody Empire? Would Kia tell Chen Rui everything after this fight?
