After confirming that Nero had left, Chen Rui said, “Let’s talk about the first step of our cooperative plan. I believe Miss Isabella should have reported the benefits of this plan to Royal Highness. This kind of continuous and generous profit completely…”
“Isabella just told me the information she collected and Josh’s guarantee, she didn’t say anything else, “Obsidian directly interrupted Chen Rui. “In short, Sir Charles, what I want to hear is the key question. This is the only way for you to get a satisfactory answer.” “Before this, I was only planning to cooperate with a lord. I never thought of the opportunity to cooperate with an empire, so I have been brewing some real plans for a long time. It should be ready for implementation now. I can assure Your Highness that the Fallen Angel Empire is the only beneficiary of this project and my only collaborator. This project is definitely not just a huge wealth for Your Highness and me. However, before telling the detailed plan for the first step, I want to ask Your Highness a question.”
When Obsidian heard Chen Rui said, “It’s definitely not just a huge wealth”, his eyes moved slightly, “What’s the question.”
“There is a saying that there is nothing you can’t sell. It’s just a matter of whether the chips are enough. What I want to ask is whether the friendship between Nero and Your Highness can surpass this rule?” Chen Rui wiped the blood stains on the corner of his mouth. “I believe Your Highness has seen the situation just now. I don’t want to have a sharp blade hanging on my head, threatening my life and plans at any time… Maybe it is also our plan…”
“…Our. You used this term too early. I have to know your bargaining chip first. To keep it simple, I don’t like to beat around the bushes.” Chen Rui really simply said a few words, and Obsidian was immediately intrigued when he heard these words.
No one knew what Obsidian and “Charles” were talking about in the palace this morning, but when the human walked out of the palace, the smile on his face seemed confident.
As Chen Rui came out of the palace and walked to the corner of the inner city’s street, he saw a succubus dressed as a maid approaching, “Sir Charles, Lady Isabella invites sir to the Donomie Pavilion outside the city. Please follow me on the carriage, sir.”
Chen Rui nodded, and followed the maid into a carriage. They rushed toward the outer city. The “Donomie Pavilion” was even outside the outer city wall. It was located in the suburbs where it was quiet and remote. Chen Rui initially thought it was a restaurant or something, but it looked like a private house now. I don’t know why Isabella invited me to such a remote place?
“Madam is inside. Please come with me, sir.”
Chen Rui nodded, but he was vigilant and secretly guarding. Although he suffered badly after encountering Nero, his physique was extraordinary. Coupled with the grand master-level healing potion, he was almost fully-recovered.
“Sir, please wait a moment.” The maid took Chen Rui into the yard and bowed back.
The yard was very big. Chen Rui faintly felt a strange breath surrounding it, and this kind of breath even felt somewhat familiar.
After waiting for a while, Isabella still didn’t show up. Chen Rui was not in a rush, so he said indifferently, “Come out, this little trick is meaningless.”
“Hmph!” In the courtyard, a figure appeared out of thin air. It was a young man who was full of energy. His crisp short shirt seemed simple, but the material was the best. He looked extraordinary, but Chen Rui felt that this “extraordinary” was somewhat feigned.
Race: Pride Royal family. Comprehensive Strength Assessment: C
Chen Rui’s eyes didn’t look at this guy who was only a Demon King, Instead, he looked behind this guy, “There is one more.”
“Oh?” The young man sounded faintly surprised. The shadow behind him suddenly became blurred as they condensed into a human form. It was a fair-skinned black-haired man at about forty years old who was wearing a gray robe. It was just that his skin was a little too fair that it seemed to be a pale, bloodless face.
Race: Greed Royal Family (mutated).

The young man said coldly, “You are indeed quite powerful. No wonder you dared to pester Lady Isabella.”
Chen Rui immediately understood the crux of the matter. He frowned, “Is that why you cheated me here today?”
“First of all, you have to understand one thing. This is the capital, not your kind of unknown place. The condition here is more complicated than you think. If you want to live in this place, or live better, you must understand some rules…”
“Do you mean this warning yourself, or did you say it for someone else?” Chen Rui looked thoughtful. “I remember I offended a guy called Lordan. He even seems to be a heir of a veteran family.”
“Don’t compare me, Diak, with that kind of guy. Lordan is just an incompetent person born from a woman from the side royal family who married the Lincoln Family. I, Diak, am the purest member of the Lucifer Royal Family!” The young man proudly said, “Isabella is mine. If you still don’t act sensibly, be prepared to die. This is definitely not just a warning. Understand?”
As if corresponding to Diak’s threat, the strange breath of the pale middle-aged man became stronger and stronger. Some plants in the courtyard began to wither.
Chen Rui nodded, “Understood.”
“Then get away from Isabella immediately! If I see you with her again,…” Chen Rui interrupted Diak impolitely, “I have no interest in Isabella and the boring jealousy games you all are playing. I’ll just say that whatever I, Charles, will not let an overbearing little character like you tell me what to do!” If it was before entering the palace today, he still didn’t want to create trouble easily so as not to affect his big plans, but he and Obsidian had confirmed the cooperation plan between the two sides now. Therefore, there was naturally no need to tolerate Diak.
As a collaborator, “Charles” established an image of neither humble nor arrogant in front of Prince Obsidian. Particularly in terms of future plans, he didn’t show any weak attitude at all, and the “blueprint” he described won Obsidian’s praise.
This image must always be preserved.
Besides, dignity was never given by others, but earned by oneself.
“Since you are looking for death by yourself, you can’t blame me! Sulfur!” Diak’s eyes flashed, and his body quickly moved back. The gray-robed man named Sulfur waved his hand and a cluster of black mist appeared around Chen Rui’s body, surrounding him from all sides. It was the dark magic, [Decomposing Mist], which contained extremely vicious poison. As long as a little bit of it was inhaled, the body would be badly poisoned. The internal organs would quickly rot before finally becoming a pile of bones.
Chen Rui didn’t even move, allowing the black mist to cover him. In Diak’s horrified gaze, Chen Rui took a deep breath, and the poisonous mist quickly shrank. He actually sucked in everything.
Diak had personally seen Sulfur use the [Decomposing Mist] on several Demon King-level demonic beasts, and they were down to only skeletons in a short period of time. I didn’t expect that this person did not avoid it and took the initiative to swallow the poisonous mist!
Sulfur also seemed surprised, then he became solemn. He began to be serious about this opponent who was only “an early stage Great Demon King”. He waved continuously, and the sharp black feather arrows condensed by countless dark elements flew toward Chen Rui.
A blue round shield appeared around Chen Rui. Those arrows with strong penetration power could not break the defense of this round shield. Sulfur continued to cast several dark magics, but the shield only showed some cracks. It was still intact.
The time limit of the protective cover was once an hour. It had been an hour since the last fight against Nero now, so the teleportation and the protective cover could be used again.
“This is your threat? I haven’t even attacked slightly until now.” Chen Rui scornfully looked at Diak who was watching the game in the distance. “It seems that you are far behind Lordan. You are an incompetent generation who will only hide behind others and create clamor.” Diak was furious, but he didn’t dare to come over. He shouted, “Sulfur, use your strongest magic. I want to personally see this guy crushed to pieces! Don’t worry, I have sent away the people here!”
Sulfur roared, and his spirit power skyrocketed. Suddenly, something broke out on the ground where Chen Rui was. It was actually a group of 40 to 50 skeletons. At the same time, a group of phantoms floated out. The phantoms were the undead creatures which were transformed from the dead with a strong spirit power when they were alive. They had a strong immunity to physical damage, and could sometimes be completely immune.
Not only that, there were 2 more unidentified creatures beside Sulfur. They had a pale green complexion and a ferocious appearance. The claws in the brown robe had sharp nails, and the cracked mouth corners reveal terrifying fangs.
Race: Vampire (Undead). Comprehensive strength: B. Physique: B-, Strength: B, Spirit: B-, Agility: B
The appearance of those undeads did not surprise Chen Rui because he had felt a little undead breath in the courtyard previously. With the information of the [Analytical Eyes], he could already be sure that the other party was really good at undead magic.
I actually encountered another undead magician!
The appearance of the vampire in front of Chen Rui slightly surprised him. This kind of undead creature production was very complicated. Since no suitable “material” was found, even Guradam hadn’t seen it in that border town last time. Unexpectedly, Sulfur has 2 Great Demon King middle stage vampires! If Guradam knows about it, his eyes would gleam.
The speed and power of the vampire is amazing. It can automatically heal injuries, and it has a certain amount of spiritual magic power which is quite difficult to deal with. Coupled with Sulfur’s own dark magic, it is no wonder that Diak looks confident.
However, Sulfur seems very tired with a lot of sweat on his head. It seems that manipulating these 2 vampires has consumed a lot of his energy. This kind of control power is not comparable at all with Guradam who can control the Great Demon King level terror knight with only his projection.
After Chen Rui’s quick thinking, his figure shifted and rushed towards Diak. Diak knew that he was definitely not an opponent, so he was taken aback and quickly activated a magic ring. His body was suddenly wrapped in a silver light which was obviously a protective item.
Before Chen Rui attacked Diak, the 2 vampires behind him were already close to him like a phantom. The speed was amazing. Chen Rui reluctantly gave up his “plan” to get Diak as his hostage. His figure shook as he fled to the house inside.
“Catch him! Don’t let him run away!” Diak exclaimed in a panic. His previous demeanor was gone.
Chen Rui fled in any way he could in a rush and didn’t choose the main door. Instead, he fled all the way into several houses inside.
It was almost self-defeating as the vampire behind him followed closely. In the blink of an eye, the 3 figures had already gone into the distant house. Even Sulfur couldn’t make a move in time, so he could only control Phantom to chase Chen Rui.
Sulfur was about to chase him, but he felt a strange breath coming from the inside of the house. It was even accompanied by a destructive breath that made his soul tremble. His own strength was actually partially weakened for no reason. He was taken aback. At this moment, the ground trembled, and he could hear the sound of the building cracking and collapsing.
This sound ended soon, and the terrifying breath disappeared. Sulfur suddenly screamed and covered his heart in pain with an unbelievable expression in his eyes.
A figure appeared in the courtyard instantly, and 2 things were thrown to the ground at the same time.
It was the 2 vampires. One had no head as if cut off by a sharp blade, while the other one had a big hole in its chest. Although it was not dead, it had completely lost its combat power. Furthermore, the hole was gradually expanding at a speed visible to the naked eye. It was an unknown terrifying corrosive force which made it unable to heal itself.
Sulfur controlled these 2 vampires of his level by using some kind of soul fusion secret technique. Since one of the vampires was dead while the other was seriously injured now, the spirit trauma to Sulfur was also quite serious.
“Damn it!” Sulfur’s body trembled violently. Not to mention the spirit trauma, what he felt distressed about was these 2 vampires. These were his greatest efforts, yet they were destroyed so easily!
What startled him apart from the vampires was that he also lost connections with the phantoms . It seemed that they were all killed.
It was just a short moment…
What happened in that room? What power is this?
Without waiting for Sulfur to cast the next magic, Chen Rui appeared behind him again in a ghostly manner. With only one blow, the undead magician fainted to the ground. The skeletons around him suddenly stopped moving and fell down one by one as if they had lost their strange vitality.
Chen Rui’s combat skills and tactics had now reached a mature level. If he was going to fight head-on in the yard, it would not be easy for Chen Rui to win over a Mammon Royal Family who was proficient in dark magic, plus the powerful fighting power of vampires. If he wanted to end the fight quickly, he might need to use his trump card of [Scorching Dragon Kill]. By attracting the vampires into the house, he could avoid exposing his own power, and make use of the terrain to destroy each one of them. Combined with the power of the [Dark Star Territory], “Thunderous Sound” artifact and [Aura Blade], he really accomplished everything in one fell swoop. The 2 vampires were killed quickly, while for those phantoms, it was just a piece of cake.
“Let me correct you, I’m not running away.” Chen Rui smiled and walked toward Diak who was in utter disbelief. “I just don’t want you to see my power. I don’t know what the capital rules are, but there is an universal rule regardless of the location. That is fist.”
Diak did not expect that Sulfur sent out the 2 strongest vampires, but they were all killed so easily. Looking at Chen Rui who was slowly approaching, he wanted to escape, but his legs were unable to move like dumbbells.
This “Charles” is terrifying!
The more terrifying thing was that the magic prop that protected his body just now could no longer be used in a short time.
“Don’t kill me! I’m from the royal family! If” Before he finished his words, he was punched hard in his stomach. It was so painful that he crouched, and even his tears came out.
Before he could speak again, he got another kick under his ribs. Diak clearly heard the sound of his rib fracturing. He screamed and fell to the ground.
Diak nodded quickly while covering his wound, not even daring to take a breath, “Sir, spare my life!
I’m foolish for offending sir, and I will never dare to do it anymore.” If Diak had been stubborn, Chen Rui would see him differently, but this guy was hiding behind others while gesticulating at first. He was wagging his tail and begging for mercy now. It was very disdainful indeed.
However, Chen Rui knew very well in his heart that although this guy begged for mercy on the surface, he must be gritting his teeth with hatred and thinking about how to get revenge.
Diak was a member of the royal family. If Chen Rui killed him directly, Chen Rui would definitely have endless troubles which might also affect the plan. If Chen Rui did not kill him, there would still be endless troubles. Chen Rui didn’t want to be alert of a mad dog all the time.
Chen Rui’s gaze fell on the undead magician who had fainted to the ground, and he asked faintly, “You want to survive?” Diak nodded eagerly while he secretly thought, as long as I get through today, I will get back my revenge in folds!
“Then… Take off your clothes immediately!” Diak was dumbfounded, thinking he had heard it wrongly.
“Take off your clothes and pants! I won’t say it the third time!” Chen Rui faintly exuded a terrifying destruction breath.
Diak shuddered as he thought of the capital’s aristocrats who like men, and he felt a chill rise from his spine. He never thought that one day he would also face the crisis of being raped.
He now really regretted what he did to provoke the opponent today~
Which bastard said that Charles and Isabella have a flirtatious relationship? He clearly likes man. Chen Rui’s murderous intention made Diak even more chilled, and at the same time his butt was even more tense. He finally took off his clothes one by one as in shiver if he was a weak woman who was about to be abused.
When Diak tearfully took off his last pair of shorts, the other party’s order came, “Go and take off Sulfur’s clothes!”
Does this Sir want to play threesome? Diak tearfully stretched out the hand of sin to the undead magician who had fainted.
However, things did not seem to be going in his most worried direction.
“Alright, you hug him. Yes, this posture…” “Show a more affectionate expression…” “Giggle in his ears…”
“Change another posture…”
Chen Rui endured the nausea while fiddling with the memory crystal in his hand. He constantly commanded the two naked men to assume various affectionate poses. Of course, it was just postures, and he did not allow the two guys to truly have “in-depth exchange”.
“Okay! Put your clothes on.”
Chen Rui’s voice made the somewhat numb Diak stop and put on his clothes quickly.
“The intimate scenes of you two just now are all in this memory crystal.” Chen Rui threw the crystal in his hand. “I can assume the matter today did not happen, but if I get to know that you dare to make any small movements behind my back, then this crystal will be copied into countless copies and distributed to every corner of the Fallen Angel Empire. If you want to be famous, you might as well try it.”
“You, you are the real demon,” Diak slumped to the ground.
The memory crystal could be another huge business xD
