When Samuel was distracted, Chen Rui, who had broken free from the binding, appeared in front of him. A berserk punch which contained the power of the Scorching Dragon, hit Samuel’s lower abdomen. Samuel crouched in pain. Chen Rui turned his palms into claws and clasped onto Samuel’s face. Then, the [Aurora Shot]’s destructive power was about to gush out.
Samuel’s reaction seemed to be a lot slower. He spat out a few words vaguely with his clasped face, “Wait… I admit defeat!”
The surrounding environment changed back to the original open space. Chen Rui slowly let go of his clasped palms. Samuel sighed with relief and gasped, but Chen Rui did not withdraw his hands. His five fingers were pointing at Samuel, and a powerful destruction force was at stand-by, “You have only two ways now, surrender to me or die.”
Samuel can notice my human identity, Snowden’s puppet body, and my [Breath Holding]. This kind of person must be in my own hands!
“Before I choose to die or surrender, I want to figure out one thing first.” Samuel had calmed down, and there was not much fear in his eyes, “Who are you, Royal Highness?”
“Royal Highness?” Chen Rui was taken aback. Did Samuel recognize the wrong person?
“Royal Highness, you don’t need to conceal anymore. There are only two of us in this battle space,” Samuel bowed slightly. It seemed that this etiquette was common to both worlds, “The damage of the light magic will be substantially weakened for the people who have [Body of Light Blessing]. It will also automatically absorb the power of the light element. [Body of Light Blessing] is extremely rare. It can only be found in the purest royal blood of the two great holy empires. What I want to ask now is the surname of Royal Highness. Is it Roland or Sherbert?”
“To be honest, this the first time I heard about [Body of Light Blessing].” Chen Rui pointed to his brain, “I entered the Demon Realm by accident more than a year ago. At that time, I had a serious concussion. Many memories are now fragmented. I only remember that my name is Arthur. As for my surname, I have no impression at all.”
“Arthur? Are you Royal Highness Arthur? You are actually in the Demon Realm!” Samuel was startled and looked at Chen Rui repeatedly. “No, I have seen Royal Highness Arthur a few times. He is way more handsome than you…”
Chen Rui was currently using the appearance on the Earth before rebirth. Samuel’s remark hurt his self-esteem, but it was obvious that Samuel was an acquaintance of Arthur. Chen Rui had the intention to learn more about this body, so he removed his [Camouflage] technique, and restored his face to Arthur’s face.
“Sure enough, it is Royal Highness Arthur!” Samuel was so excited that he knelt down on one knee. He pressed his right hand on his heart, “Son of Carlo Kemplot, Samuel, pays respect to Royal Highness!”
“Wait!” Chen Rui remained vigilant. “Before you tell a story or make up a story, you must make a choice first.”
Samuel cut his palm without hesitation, and the blood turned into a flame-like figure, “I, the Silver Knight, Samuel. Kemplot swore with light and blood that I will always follow Royal Highness Arthur. Roland . If I betray him, I will be destroyed into ashes under the trial light.”
Chen Rui didn’t want any vows. He wanted the master-servant contract. At this time, a notification popped up in the Super System, “Unknown spiritual link is found, label – level b. Can be canceled or disconnected. Accept or decline?”
Chen Rui chose to accept, and there was a new line in the spiritual link: The Blood Oath of Light.
The subject is Samuel. Kemplot. Attributes: loyalty and never give up.
Although it is not the master-servant contract that I imagined, the attributes are still very reliable. But… it seems to be a bit too smooth right? After revealing my overbearing identity, he bowed his head to me immediately? What is with the surname of Roland? Is it a human royal family?
“It seems that I have lost a lot of important memories,” Chen Rui knew that the Super System would not deceive people. He withdrew his oppressive forces immediately. In fact, it was still very difficult to exert [Scorching Dragon Possession] with his current physical state. His heart was already in deep pain.
“You tell me everything you know now, including the situation of the human world. Tell me everything.”
“Yes, Royal Highness.”
This title made Chen Rui feel awkward, but he still listened patiently.
The human world coexisted with various creatures such as the elf, hobbit and human. The human population was the largest and had the widest territory.
In the human world, there were countless small countries and forces, but there were only two giants that were truly recognized by the Light Divinity Temple: Blue Glory Empire and Dragon Bright Empire. They were known as the two great holy empires.
The two great holy empires had been established for thousands of years. Considering the short life of human beings, it was quite a long time. Although there were ups and downs, under the coordination of the Divinity Temple, a delicate balance could always be maintained.
The Light Divinity Temple was the highest symbol of light and order. It was also the source of light magic. The coronation of the emperors of the two great empires must be presided over by the highest spiritual leader of the temple, the great priest. This was somehow similar to the European historic Pope which Chen Rui knew about.
Roland was the supreme royal surname of Dragon Bright Empire. Arthur. Roland was the third son of Lex. Roland, the current emperor of Dragon Bright Empire. Arthur owned the richest Golden Estate of Dragon Bright Empire.
Chen Rui only knew from Arthur’s memory fragments that “himself” was a nobleman who was goof-off and carefree. He did not expect himself to be the prince of the strongest human empire. He even had his own fiefdom! The standard second generation of the powerful and rich!
Then the question arose. How could such an important person come to Demon Realm “accidentally”?
According to Samuel, after the disappearance of Royal Highness Arthur, Lex the Emperor was extremely furious. He ordered a search across the country, but he found nothing in the end. Arthur had a fiancee, Landbis, the princess of the Blue Glory Empire. After the incident, the marriage between the two countries was forced to suspend. Fortunately, Lex the Emperor had a special bloodline sense. He was always determined that Arthur was still alive, so the estate remained. But it was taken care of by the second prince, Garfield. Roland.
The reason for Samuel’s easy surrender was simple. Arthur was originally the direct leader and benefactor of the Kemplot Family. The Kemplot Family was one of the two major families in the Golden Estate. They were also a famous commercial family in the empire, which had been involved in multiple areas. The huge wealth made the Kemplot Family become the target of jealousy. During an unforeseen catastrophe, if it were not for Arthur defending them in front of Lex the Emperor, the Kemplot Family almost suffered an annihilation for the entire family. For this, Carlo felt very grateful. He also became the tax officer of Golden Estate.
Samuel swore allegiance to the “lord” as a prince and became a follower. It was not only to repay gratitude, but it was also a great honor.
After Arthur’s disappearance, the representative lord, Garfield, retrenched the officials of the estate. Carlo, who had offended Garfield, was one of them. He was almost imprisoned too. Fortunately, Carlo was well prepared and withdrew in time. Nevertheless, the Kemplot Family suffered various levels of suppression, which resulted in heavy losses.
Samuel was one of the empire geniuses. His teacher Johnson was a well-known swordmaster. Before his death, Johnson passed on his power to his disciples. Therefore, Samuel reached the peak of Master, and Horadric was also Johnson’s relic.
In a duel hosted by the Divinity Temple, Samuel was defeated by Paul publicly. Paul was the top talented swordsman of the empire and also Samuel’s love rival. The woman Samuel loved was ordered by her father to marry Paul. The repeated setbacks made Samuel almost unable to recover. In order to clear the shame and regain his lover, Samuel used some kind of secret technique to come to Demon Realm. He vowed not to return until he reached Saint.
If it weren’t for [Body of Light Blessing] and the familiar appearance, Samuel wouldn’t believe that the powerhouse who beat him turned out to be the Royal Highness Lord who indulged in feast and pleasure all day.
Is he hiding his strength all the while? Or did he have some incredible encounters in Demon Realm? Anyway, this time Royal Highness Arthur was blessed by misfortune. He really deserved to be the descendant of King Roland of Dragon Bright.
Chen Rui then understood the true origin of “Arthur”. From Samuel’s description, his “disappearance” was very suspicious. It was definitely a conspiracy. The planner might be the direct beneficiary, Garfield or other princes. It might also be related to the Princess Landbis of Blue Glory Empire whom he was going to marry. Unfortunately, many memories had been lost, and they couldn’t be connected into a complete plot.
Chen Rui was still very interested in Samuel’s arrival to Demon Realm and the method of returning. According to Samuel’s answer, he paid an expensive price to ask an elf space magician master to break through the space and came to Demon Realm through secret channels. This method was very risky. If it failed, he would fall into space and die in the turbulence. As for the return method, a secret method was used to implant a strange “seed” in the body. It was equivalent to a one-time fixed coordinate transmission. But you couldn’t go back and forth repeatedly. You must use that risky space again when you want to go to Demon Realm next time.
According to Samuel’s own requirements, this “seed” must be activated by Saint’s power. Otherwise, he would stay in Demon Realm for forever. It was worth noting that the “seed” would not disappear after the owner’s death, which meant that it could be taken by others.
As long as Chen Rui killed Samuel, he might get a chance to return to the human world.
“Unfortunately, I’m in Demon Realm and I can’t contact my father. Otherwise, the news of Royal Highness’ safety will reach the human world. This will inspire many people including Lex Royal Highness!”
“No! The first thing you have to do is keep it secret. No matter whether you can reach Saint’s strength and return to the human world, you must not reveal my news and identity to anyone without my permission.”
Chen Rui said with a solemn face, “I am not strong enough to control my own destiny now. When my strength is enough, I will appear in front of those enemies in an overriding gesture. In their frightful gaze, I’ll take back everything that belongs to me! You too, understand?”
“Understood!” Samuel’s eyes showed respect and eagerness. He knelt on one knee, “Please allow me Samuel. Kemplot to become the sharpest sword in the hands of Royal Highness, cutting off all the thorns in the road ahead!”
Poor Samuel. He didn’t know that this “Royal Highness” just didn’t want to go back. That prince appeared glorious, but it was actually extremely dangerous. He had to encounter deceptions and schemes every day. If he was not careful, he might encounter “accidents” at any time just like when he fell into the Demon Realm.
Demon Realm is much better. There are buddies and girls. I might as well just stay here, marry some beloved witches and be the son-in-law of the demons for life.
Was the Super System a talent of “Arthur” or it was something that surpassed the human and demon worlds?
