Although a brief interlude appeared on the perfectly planned birthday night, in the next few days, the female sheriff who had her first taste of the experience and the male sheriff who was a strong in theory but a rookie in practical experience could be described as joined at the hip.
However, happy days always seemed exceptionally short. Finally, it was time to part again.
Perhaps the more painful the parting is, the more precious it will be.
“Relax everyone. As long as my plan takes a successful step, there will be plenty of chances to come back in the middle.” Chen Rui looked at Paglio and others who came to see him off and waved his hand.
“Stop being self-sentimental.” Roman, who rode on a horse, gave him a contemptuous glance. “They’re here to send me.”
Roman also intended to leave for a while this time. His destination was the Fallen Angel capital. He wanted to meet Isabella to see if she was his father’s sister, but the main goal was to explore the whereabouts of the artifact, Breeze Shadow Boots, of the Belphegor Royal Family.
Delia smiled brightly, showing a rare charm. Roman was stunned seeing that, “Are you shouting the words “freedom at last” in your heart?”
Roman shook his head quickly, “I am thinking that I must finish this matter as soon as possible and rush back to see my beloved Delia sooner.”
As Isabella was likely to be related to the secret force, which also involved Broc, Roman’s trip was not easy. Due to this reason, Delia did not go with him, so as not to expose her whereabouts which would in turn attract Broc or even Jacob and the others. Roman had the Evil Blue Tear which suppressed breath, plus a certain degree of disguise skills. Therefore, even if Broc was in front of him, he might not be able to see through Roman.
“Don’t try to hide it from me!” Delia sneered, “Anyway, remember to keep your cheap women-seducing life and come back…”
Despite the two seemed to be happy enemies on the surface, especially the guy with the foul mouth was the “receiver”  in front of Delia, both of them regard the other as more important than their lives. This was a tacit understanding of experiencing life and death together.
Chen Rui and Athena also had this kind of tacit understanding, so he felt very happy. This life would be worthwhile if one could meet each other like this in their lifetime even though it was full of hardships. However, Athena gave Kia some parting time at this moment. Chen Rui had been with her these days, and did not have the time to spend alone with Kia. Although it was requested by the succubus maid, Athena felt unfair to her.
In fact, this was where Kia was smart. She was very lucky to encounter a “first wife” like Athena. It was undeniable that the two women who were sharing a man at the same time would inevitably be a bit competitive in certain aspects, but Athena’s generosity and friendliness make Kia feel a genuine warmth in her heart. If her mother, Freya, saw this in another world, it would be enough to make her smile.
“You must be careful.” Kia’s attractive eyes were glittering. In fact, she didn’t know this “master” for a long time, but she really gave her heart to him.
“En.” Chen Rui kissed her forehead gently.
“The next time you come back, you can wear ‘that’…” Speaking of this, a trace of blush flicked across the succubus’s face. Her sound was nearly inaudible as she retreated behind Athena.
‘That’ was naturally Dark Will. Kia remembered that she was extremely shocked after learning from Athena that when the two went to Mountain Xilang, Princess Royal Shea had given Dark Will to Chen Rui.
All along, she dared to tease that “human master” because of her special physique. Unexpectedly, the other party already had the “ultimate killer” to restrain this aspect much earlier.
Dark Will was the secret ring made by the Lord of Midnight Sun, Lucifer’s favorite concubine, Belphegor, using the strongest [The Eye of Evil] power and the blood of the Lucifer Royal Family. It had a strange power which could suppress any engulfment power. It was a rare nemesis of Kia’s Devour Physique.
The human had been given this ring secretly by the Princess Royal when he went to Mountain Xilang as a mining officer. This meant that Kia’s occasional seduction and teasing after she became Chen Rui’s maid was like playing with fire; she might get into trouble any time.
However, this fire didn’t really burn. He really is a silly man, but also a persistent man at the same time. Or should I say he is a patient wolf? Anyway, I like him.
Chen Rui was not stupid. He surely understood the message between the lines, and his eyes suddenly lit up. Kia’s message is very clear. I must come back safely, and the reward is herself. This “reward mechanism” is really tempting.
Chen Rui’s eyes fell on Athena. The female swordsman who completed the transformation from a girl to a woman was more mature and charming. He walked over and hugged Athena before hugging Kia, “Wait for my return.” ”
His tone was firm and strong.
After nodding at Paglio and Delia, Chen Rui rode on the wyvern. As he was about to bid farewell to Roman, the guy spoke first, “Hey, sir leader, this time when you go out, will you bring another woman back?”
Chen Rui took back his farewell, and he grinned while glancing at Delia, “I will tell Delia that you have an old acquaintance in the capital.”
“Ah?” Before Roman had the time to refute, the wyvern had already taken off, and flew forward with Chen Rui’s long laugh.
“He’s really a guy who isn’t willing to suffer a loss at all.” Roman felt Delia’s cold eyes. He had a chill and urged the horse to run away.
“Let’s go, teach the guy a lesson slowly when he is back.” Paglio smiled while glancing into the distance before turning away.
On the hillside in the distance, Alice put her hands in front of her eyebrows and stared at the figure flying away. It took her a long time to recover.
“He left again…”
“He will be back.” A cold voice sounded; it was Shea.
Alice thought that when she was flying in the sky with Chen Rui the other day, the human had implicitly hinted that he wanted to be her good friend forever. At that time, the little loli pretended not to understand, but she knew in her heart: Am I really worse than Athena? Is it because of my disappointing chest? Or…
In Chen Rui’s view, Alice was just a young girl under the age of 14 after all. It was just a little youthful enthusiasm or curiosity about the opposite sex which could not be considered as a liking; not to mention love. It was totally different from the unforgettable love of Athena who went through life and death together.
“Sister, how does it feel to like someone?”
Shea was slightly distracted. Liking a person is wanting to see him often even though he is super annoying at times? And when you can’t see the person, you will keep thinking about him?
Alice didn’t seem to wait for her sister’s “answer” deliberately, and murmured again, “What about loving someone?”
“Alice, what nonsense are you thinking about it?” Shea’s voice became colder. In fact, she couldn’t provide the “answer”, even if it was only in her heart.
Thinking of a famous quote (a dragon motto) once spoken by a friend who loved drinking, Alice was suddenly rejuvenated.
“It’s okay, let’s go, sister!”
Kanita was taking a report while frowning tightly. In recent days, this expression was almost solidified on his face. The content of this report was the financial revenue and expenditure of the last quarter. This was a real internal account, and not the kind of public account book set up to cope with inspections.
To be honest, Town Moling’s economic situation was better than Joseph’s Town Mordo, but the economic source was relatively less. The military spending had become tighter recently. Originally, the military strength of a town was strictly limited, but Joseph and Kanita each had their own private soldiers which had far exceeded the normal number.
The Red Spirit Lord, Josh, knew that the two boys were fighting each other, and he just turned a blind eye, but he never lost his vigilance. As a lord, he had more and stronger troops in his hands. Even if his sons had any irregular actions, he still had absolute control over them.
Just like the emperor and the Crown Prince, he hoped that the Crown Prince would excel and be able to inherit his own country. On the other hand, he must beware of his son’s influence becoming too big and revolting in advance to take over his power.
In the power struggle, there were no father, son and brothers; only opponents.
The fiscal deficit was getting bigger and bigger, but Kanita already felt it was difficult to stop halfway. It was impossible for him to give up. Currently, he could only grit his teeth and keep walking forward. Between him and Joseph (even adding Josh), whoever holds on to the end would be the winner.
It was a long-term problem to knock down his father, Josh, so he didn’t have to think too much about it now. His main opponent for the time being was his brother, Joseph.
In terms of combat, Joseph had a breakthrough to the Demon King level, but Kanita had a great chance to win whether it was in the aspect of personal strength, military or military talent. However, Kanita was indeed inferior in terms of financial strength. Joseph also served as the financial officer of the Dark Moon, receiving strong support from the Mellon Family and other forces. Joseph’s foundation was much greater than him, so what he urgently needed to solve was the financial problem.
Everyone had their strong and weak points. While Kanita’s training talent was far superior than Joseph, his economic talent was much inferior. His investments in other estates and the Dark Shadow Empire had mostly failed, and the tax rate of Town Moling could no longer be raised. Therefore, the economic problems were getting serious. Due to this, Kanita was very aggressive to Joseph some time ago. Joseph was deep-minded and understood this, so he attacked by evading it. On the surface he was weak, but he actually played the stall tactics, intentionally using a protracted battle to bring down Kanita.
Kanita was well aware of this. He was anxious in his heart as he had no plans at all. If he continued according to this momentum, there would be no other way than weakening himself by cutting the military budget. Each of those private soldiers was infused with Kanita’s efforts, and they were definitely the elite among the elites. Asking him to give up was more painful than cutting his flesh. This kind of self-weakening is equivalent to strengthening the other party. Moreover, the short moment of relief can bring endless suffering which will intensify over time. After losing my strengths and advantages, how am I going to compete with Joseph?
At this moment, the bodyguard came to report, “Sir Samuel is back, and he brought a man, saying there are important things to meet you.”
“Let them come in now.” Kanita kept the report in the Space Ring. During this time, under his various means to win over Samuel, the powerful human trainer gradually lowered his pride and vigilance. The two sides had established a stronger friendship.
A few days ago, Kanita was assassinated. Samuel appeared in time and killed the assassins. Then, Samuel took the initiative to ask for his permission to secretly burn Joseph’s granary in Town Mordo. Samuel even severely injured the veteran, Freddy, who had always supported Joseph. It was somewhat a little comfort with his predicament now.
Samuel walked into the hall and brought a man in a cloak whose true face couldn’t be seen. Samuel looked at the guards next to Kanita. Kanita understood and ordered them to step back. In case Samuel revolted, these few people couldn’t stop it. Not to mention that this was Kanita’s place, so he naturally had life-saving items with him.
“Mr. Samuel” Kanita stood up as a sign of respect, “Welcoming your victorious return, I’ve received information from Town Mordo that Joseph is jumping upright now!”
“It’s not a problem at all.” Samuel shook his head casually, “Mr. Kanita, this time I brought back a person to introduce to sir specifically.”
Kanita glanced at the man in cloak, and was secretly surprised. Samuel has always been proud, but when referring to this man, he has an unprecedented respect. It seems that this person’s identity is quite extraordinary.
“This is my elder brother, Charles, the true successor of the Kemplot Family. He just arrived at Demon Realm. He came for a very important matter this time.” Samuel showed a respectful face, “Brother, this is the new friend I met at Demon Realm, Sir Kanita, the controller of Town Moling.”
A human who just arrived at Demon Realm? Plus, he is Samuel’s elder brother? Kanita noticed Samuel’s words and address. His pupils contracted slightly. The arrogant Samuel’s respect of his brother was not fake at all. This was different from Kanita’s attitude toward Joseph which was the complete opposite.
The mysterious human had slowly taken off his cloak. The man was not very tall, with blonde hair, fair skin, golden pupils, and a tough face. The breath of power exuded from his body gave Kanita a shiver. This human is at least a Great Demon King level powerhouse. From Samuel’s attitude, I’m afraid that Charles’s strength is far better than his brother. Could it be that he has reached Demon Emperor level?
“Mayor?” The blond human frowned, “Samuel, the one you recommended to me is actually just a mayor? I thought he would be at least a lord. What the hell are you doing?”
There were countless thoughts in Kanita’s heart in an instant. Charles’s unkind questioning did not make him angry, but he smiled instead, “My father, Sir Josh, is the owner of this Red Spirit Estate and one of the four major lords of the Fallen Angel Empire. However, he happened to be in closed training in the previous days and would not meet any visitors. So, it was the wisest decision for Sir Samuel to come here.”
Kanita did not know to what extent the two humans had colluded in advance. Charles’ behaviour might be deliberately pretended. Kanita just gave an explanation to enable Samuel to step down, so that this conversation could continue in a friendly atmosphere.
Samuel nodded thankfully to Kanita. “Charles” looked slightly relaxed while he said, “Since Sir Kanita is the son of the lord and a friend of Samuel, then I hope to get help from Sir to arrange my meeting with the lord. ”
Although demons and humans were implacable enemies, it was not uncommon for humans to come to Demon Realm for training over the years. Many of them would temporarily join Demon Realm forces. However, on the first meeting, Charles wanted to approach a Demon Realm lord. The situation seemed to be somewhat fishy. Plus the “important matter” Samuel mentioned earlier made Kanita full of doubts.
What is the actual purpose of “Charles”?
 The man who plays the role of girlfriend in a homosexual relationship.
One thing for sure that he wasn’t here to help you…
