“Last time, Fatilu invited you over rudely and you’ve stayed at the Bloody Vine City for so long, so I keep thinking apologizing to you, master but I never had a chance unfortunately. Now, I invite you over for a casual meal as a compensation.” Sabrina held a bottle of wine, personally filled the wine glass in front of Chen Rui and handed it over, “This is a superior purple berry wine I acquired from an aide outside today. I hope you can comment on it.”
Chen Rui quickly took the wine glass and smiled, “Madam, you’re too serious. I can accept this wine but not the apology. Not to mention madam is the mistress of the Devouring Hall, even if you’re not, who can bear to blame a stunning woman like you?”
“Master really knows what to say.” A hint of smiling intention flashed past her gold eyes as if water was going to drip, “I like your address as mistress very much. Come, cheers.”
They toasted. Chen Rui finished all of it while Sabrina took a shallow sip. Her elegant posture, revealing a noble and elegant beauty. This woman’s charm was indeed extraordinary. Even if the younger and more energetic Fatilu stood here, she would only seem dull in front her.
Chen Rui secretly figured out the intention of Sabrina’s invitation while saying, “I’ll be honest that I haven’t eaten in the labo for one whole day. I wonder If I can use my stomach to taste the inner beauty of this gorgeous banquet?”
“No wonder Fatilu can’t forget misses you. Master, you’re really a very humorous person.”
Sabrina chuckled and took a fork to eat a bit of fruit symbolically, “Actually, I was rude. Please feel at home, master.”
Chen Rui obviously wouldn’t hold back. Although the time rule of the Super System’s training ground was wondrous, even if it was only a day in reality, the consumption of spirit and stamina were still quite huge. It must be supplemented by food and sleep.
Seeing Chen Rui gobbling, Sabrina shook her head, “The servants at the Nightmare Valley should be punished. They actually didn’t prepare food for master to eat on the way.”
“It’s useless even if they prepared. When I concentrated on my research, there’s nothing else in my eyes except when I woke up out of hunger.” Chen Rui said vaguely, “However, those food over there cannot be compared to these delicious food here at your place.”
“Master seems to have been quite involved in your research recently.” Sabrina asked casually, “I wonder if there’s any progress?”
Chen Rui sighed, “The seven artifacts are indeed worth the reputation. The magic circle of the Magic Shield on the surface was very deep and profound. Even I can’t understand it at the moment, and it’s been a headache for me recently.”
Chen Rui knew that Sabrina was probing him, so he deliberately revealed it without thinking. In reality, he wasn’t studying the Magic Shield. He only did [Deep Analysis] five times a day and that was it. Most of the time was spent on training in the Megrez state.
“Remember to take care of your body. Don’t overwork yourself.” Sabrina smiled slightly and said with concern, “Don’t you have three hobbies? You’re very devoted to mechanics now but you’ve been neglecting the beautiful maid that my uncle granted you.”
“I’m quite picky. I have no interest in any of those maids!” Chen Rui knew that he hadn’t touched the women around him these days since he came to the Crystal Valley, so it might be quite surprising.
“Then, what kind of woman do you like, master?” Sabrina approached with an enticing voice.
Chen Rui was secretly surprised. Is she really going to seduce me by herself? Previously, he deliberately expressed admiration for Sabrina because he knew that Sabrina was a Great Demon King (probably higher than that) and she was also the main wife of a Demon Overlord powerhouse. Therefore, it was impossible for her to sacrifice herself as a bargaining chip, and he could use it to explain his lustful nature. Unexpectedly…
“Master seems to be a little nervous?” At today’s distance, he could clearly smell the scent on Sabrina. The Demon Realm didn’t have perfume, but there were similar substitutes. He didn’t notice when she was pouring wine, but now, the scent seemed to be getting stronger, seemingly indicating that her body was also heating up.
“Madam, it’ll be a lie if I say I’m not nervous. In the face of the charm of a majestic beauty like you, I cannot keep calm.” Although it felt like he was putting himself into a trap, he still had to continue the act. Therefore, Chen Rui’s eyes stared at Sabrina’s body and couldn’t move away.
Sabrina said with a flattering smile, “Master, you haven’t even seen my face. How do you know that I’m a stunning beauty?”
“I’m not a fool who doesn’t know when to retreat. I know I can only look up to madam’s strength and status.” Chen Rui had no food in his mouth, but he still made a swallowing move, “I’m only requesting madam to let me have a look at your face. I want nothing more.”
The phrase “I want nothing more” can be regarded as taking a step forward to withdraw. If it’s really unavoidable, to not expose my great identity as an undercover, I’ll have to compromise and enjoy the benefit… No, to make a huge sacrifice.
Sabrina’s eyes flicked, “Did master use this method for Fatilu? Fatilu is absent-minded recently, it seems that her heart is really stolen by the master.”
Chen Rui was secretly vigilant. The puppet controlled by the God-Eating Mask basically had no special sign in the early stage, but occasionally, extremely subtle signs might appear. Judging by Sabrina’s tone, she most likely hadn’t found out the truth. She was just mistaking that Fatilu was interested in him.
Although the puppet technique wasn’t the blood talent of the Beelzebub Royal Family, due to the use of artifacts for many years, a secret puppeting technique had also been derived. Surely, it was far from comparable to the effect of God-Eating Mask. Sabrina was still okay. If it was Azgalor, who was proficient in the secret arts of the Beelzebub Royal Family, he would most likely see through the flaws on Fatilu. As a result, either Fatilu would have to leave the Crystal Valley or the action had to be launched before Azgalor returns. From the current situation, the latter had a higher probability.
“I’ll be honest, madam. Actually, my first impression of Miss Fatilu was very good.”
Chen Rui shook his head, “Yet, after spending time with her for a while, her character is really hard to deal with. On the other hand, madam’s temperament and empathy makes it difficult for me to control myself. Can you satisfy a tiny wish of mine?”
Sabrina knew her daughter’s character, but he still didn’t agree to him. She was still trying to play hard to get, “Actually, as long as master makes a request in the Nightmare Valley, all types of women will be available. Those that are younger and prettier than me are abundant.”
“None of those women is as good as one-millionth of you.” Chen Rui stared blankly at Sabrina’s face, “I don’t know why, but since I met you, I always feel dull when I see other women. When I dream, it’s always you. Every time you’re going to remove your veil in the dream, I’ll wake up. Madam… can I just take a look?”
It would be lying if Sabrina wasn’t flattered in her heart. However, she had her own objective for inviting Chen Rui. Now that the momentum was almost there, she sighed softly, “Since master insists…”
As she spoke, Sabrina took off her veil slowly. That “slow-motion” was very technical. First, she showed her delicate nose, then her sexy red lips, followed by her rounded chin. She really had a stunning look.
Chen Rui’s heart was shocked. It wasn’t because of Sabrina’s beauty, but because Sabrina’s facial features were very similar to a woman from the Fallen Angel Empire’s capital, Isabella!
Isabella is Belphegor Royal Family whereas Sabrina is Leviathan Royal Family! Is it just a coincidence?
Roman once said that Isabella might be his half-sister with a different mother. Besides, his father eventually died in the hands of Broc while Sabrina is also Broc’s sister. Is there any connection between these elements?
Chen Rui felt that his thoughts were a bit chaotic for a moment. His moment of surprise couldn’t hide from Sabrina. She smiled slightly, “Master, did I let you down?”
At once, Chen Rui had several thoughts in his mind. His eyes kept staring at her face, then he said, “Madam’s appearance is unparalleled, but there is something that bothers me and I must get the answer. Have you been to the Fallen Angel’s capital, madam?”
The purpose of Chen Rui’s coming today wasn’t to seduce or accept seduction, but to find out Sabrina’s details, so he naturally wouldn’t miss this opportunity.
Sabrina’s expression changed slightly. A hint of chill flashed past her eyes, then it returned to normal instantly, “What are you trying to say, master?”
Sabrina’s subtle changes were seen by Chen Rui. He secretly assumed that she might really be related to Isabella. He had an idea. He took a risk by clenching his teeth and said, “Before I reached my current achievements in mechanics, I’ve once wandered in the Fallen Angel’s capital. At that place, I was subjected to an unforgettable humiliation of a lifetime, that woman…”
Chen Rui’s humiliation was nothing more than those stories about losers being humiliated by their crushes and rich, handsome men. These materials were abundant from his previous life, so he didn’t have to worry about how realistic it was. Due to that “reason”, after the protagonist possessed the capability of a master, he didn’t want to serve the Fallen Angel’s capital. He continued to wander and finally came to the Dark Shadow Empire after passing by the Dark Moon.
“Except for the eyes and hair color, madam’s appearance was exactly the same as with that woman. Perhaps it’s just a coincidence, but I hope that you’ll give me an honest answer.” Chen Rui stood up slowly with a serious face.
Sabrina was annoyed in her heart. No matter how high his mechanical skill is, his strength is only at Demon King. He actually dares to speak to me in this tone. It’s even more annoying than his admiration and flirting just now.
However, this guy is deeply respected by Manu and the crystal dragon. Since I still have to make use of him now, I must not turn my face.
“To be honest, that woman is indeed a little related to me.” Sabrina sighed. Seeing Chen Rui frowned, she immediately explained, “However, please rest assured, master. That woman is my rival. Even her brother was killed by my scheme. If there is a chance, I’ll definitely help you to deal with her!”
The hostility on Chen Rui’s face gradually disappeared, but his mood didn’t calm down: These two women with similar appearances are indeed related. The so-called rival doesn’t mean that they don’t belong to the same faction, just like Sabrina and Izola.
In other words, Isabella is also a part of this organization? If Roman’s father and Isabella are really siblings, then was Broc’s murder of Roman’s father planned by Sabrina? These things seem very complicated.
“Master, I’m sorry that this face reminds you of unpleasant things.” Sabrina put on her veil sadly.
“It’s me who should apologize.” Chen Rui shook his head quickly, “It was me that was rude. Despite the similar appearance, you’re completely different from that malicious woman. You’re still the most beautiful woman in my heart. Whenever you have a request, I won’t say no!”
“Is that true?” Seeing Chen Rui’s serious look, Sabrina sighed, “Actually, I wanted to entrust Fatilu to you today, but it’s a pity that you’re not interested in Fatilu. My effort is in vain.”
“Why entrust? What happened?” Chen Rui asked along her tone.
Sabrina looked sad and lowered her head to conceal the faint power from her right eye. She looked even more pitiful, “I believe you’ve heard from Fatilu that my husband, Azgalor is very fond of a woman named Izola. This woman is from the Mammon Royal Family, and her strength is comparable to me. Besides, she is insidious. She has schemed more than once to replace me as the main wife.”
“Did Sir Azgalor just let her be?”
“He is heartless, and he has always favored her. He even wanted to give one of my important tasks in the Crystal Valley to that woman. The situation is getting worse for me. I received information that she’ll return to the Crystal Valley in 3 days. Based on that woman’s personality, she’ll definitely harm me further. I’ve already put my life and death out of my mind, but I can’t let go of Fatilu. Therefore, I want to entrust her to master. With your current prestige, you should be able to protect Fatilu from being harmed by that woman.”
Coming back in three days? That means Kia’s mother, Freya will come back together! Chen Rui nodded secretly. He could feel that Sabrina used [The Eye of Incubus] when she said that. The power was weak and subtle, making the emotions stronger. He immediately pounded the table furiously, “What?! Madam, if you trust me, you can ask me for anything!”
“I obviously trust you, master.” Sabrina’s golden eyes lit up, then they dimmed again, “If master is willing to help, we’ll clearly win, but there is no need to offend that vicious woman for me.”
“I’m part of the Nightmare Valley and Sir Jacob takes me very seriously, so the woman can’t do anything to me! It’s just that I have a condition.” Chen Rui looked at Sabrina passionately. Finally, he made a decision and changed his tone, “I want that woman from the Fallen Angel’s capital!”
Voluntary labor will only be suspicious, so I must request a condition. However, this woman is clearly making an empty promise. She isn’t really trying to “pay”. At most, she is only willing to use her daughter as a bargain.
In fact, Chen Rui was also acting. That was why he made a “compromise”, which was to get Isabella. It was an empty promise anyway.
This condition reassured Sabrina, but at the same time she felt strangely uncomfortable, as if the person “pursuing” her turned to another woman even though she wasn’t very interested in the suitor.
However, judging from the “master’s” hatred, he wants Isabella because it is nothing more than revenge. It’s likely to be sadistic. Certainly, I cannot rule out the possibility of him using the similar face to vent his desire for me. Thinking of this, Sabrina’s bizarre possessiveness and jealousy seemed to be somewhat satisfied.
“I promise you, but it’s not possible now. When that woman loses her value, I can swear by the surname of the Leviathan Royal Family that she’ll be master’s most satisfying plaything.
Chen Rui confirmed the assumption that Isabella was a member of this force. Actually, he was happy with the fight between Sabrina and Izola. He deliberately acted like he was contemplating, then he finally agreed.
