Chen Rui thought for a while before he took the bottle and finished everything. After drinking, the men looked like they were watching a show.
“It tastes good, but the aftereffect is not good.” Chen Rui stood for a moment before sitting down. As he took out a bottle of wine from the “space ring”, he handed it to the woman, “Try this purple berry wine which was given to me by my brother. It is said to be a specialty of the Dark Shadow Empire.”
The green-haired woman was a little surprised, but she still took it. She didn’t need anything to open the bottle. She bit the bottle cap with her white jade teeth and opened it. After smelling it, she seemed joyful. She took a big mouthful, and then gave it to Chen Rui directly. Chen Rui took it without evading. After taking a few sips, he took out another bottle and handed it to her.
The expressions of the guys who watched the show were petrified as if they had seen some incredible scenes. In fact, Chen Rui did feel the abnormality just now. After receiving the bottle from the woman for the first time, the Super System prompted a reminder, “Poison energy detected and automatically absorbed”. However, even the powerful poison from the poison dragon, Paglio, couldn’t knock off Chen Rui. This level of poison naturally wouldn’t have any effect aside from adding a small amount of aura.
The reason why Chen Rui did not reject the woman at the beginning was not because of her appearance, but because of the hint in the [Analytical Eyes]: Race: Dragon (Emerald Dragon), Comprehensive Strength Assessment: Unable to judge!
I actually encountered another Demon Overlord-level powerhouse at this palace welcome ball! She’s even a dragon!
The emerald dragon was a kind of mutated green dragon with toxicity. It had a strong body and was good at water element magic, but in terms of its toxicity alone, it was still not as good as the most poisonous poison dragon.
When the woman gave Chen Rui the first bottle of wine, she obviously added a little bit of “ingredient.” She wanted to make fun of this new guy, but the other party was unexpectedly not affected at all. In the second time, it was not a mild poison to make fun of others. Instead, it was a rather strong poison, but Chen Rui still drank it indifferently without showing any abnormality.
“Your strength is not good, but your ability is a bit interesting.” The woman nodded as she picked up a plate of fruit on the table and handed it to him, “Try this.”
Chen Rui took it and took a bite. The expression on his face was suddenly distorted. There was no poison in the fruit, but the taste was astringent and pungent. He felt a chill straight through his head, and he couldn’t help shuddering.
His response made the woman smile maliciously, and her face suddenly became cold, “You just ate my most expensive and exclusive sobering food. Hand over all the belongings in the space ring now! Otherwise, don’t blame the old mother for being rude! ”
Damn your exclusive food! It’s even the most expensive?
“Is this a robbery?”
“Of course!” The word made the beauty’s eyes shine.
The dragons are professional robbers who cared for nothing but money!
She is actually doing this openly at the palace ball!
Having said that, Paglio also did the same thing. When his addiction happened, he didn’t care about the principle of not hunting near one’s own home. He went to several places in the Dark Moon, but it was a pity that there was nothing to behold in that poor place.
At this moment, Isabella’s voice sounded, “Charles, you are here.”
The woman frowned when she saw Isabella, “Do you know each other?”
“Of course, Charles is a new trusted friend I have made. I am about to introduce him to you.” Isabella said with a smile, “Charles, this is the best friend I have told you, Krobelus.”
It turns out that this emerald dragon “old mother ” is Krobelus. No wonder even Nero dares not provoke her.
Isabella smiled and said, “What were you two talking about just now? You two seems to be getting along well?”
Seeing the threatening expression of Krobelus, Chen Rui smiled, “I just lost the bet to Miss Krobelus, so I’m willing to accept the defeat. This is my bet, please accept it.”
Krobelus looked surprisingly at the box that Chen Rui handed over and opened it. It was a fist-sized red gem which was exuding magnificent lustre. It seemed to contain strange powers.
To be honest, although this gem was big, it seems a bit lurid, but “big” and “shiny” were important keywords for the dragons’ appreciation of things. Therefore, Krobelus’ eyes suddenly widened. Her light green pupils were full of the red light from the gem now.
Even among her treasures, this gem was considered to be quite large and very bright. It was a top grade gem!
“Um… Charles, you are very nice.” Sure enough, under the bribe of the property, the dragon immediately changed her attitude. The previous robber’s face was entirely gone from her smiley face.
“Charles, I want to bet with you, too.” Isabella’s gaze fell on the gem as she said affectionately. The seductive tone made one become numb.
“Um... Yini, didn’t I just lose to you a string of sea blue beads the day before yesterday? Did you forget about that?” Chen Rui smiled, “I don’t have anything to lose anymore.”
Isabella heard that he would send the bead chain afterwards, so she smiled more attractively, “Gosh, my memory. It’s all because of the little troublesome matter just now. I even forgot about it.”
“Troublesome matter?” Chen Rui asked with concern, “Is everything okay. Do you want me to help?”
“It’s just a small incident that happened in a remote estate. It’s not a big problem.” Isabella answered casually while changing the topic, “Betty, it’s hard to hear you praise a new friend like this, not to mention a man.”
“Betty” was the nickname of Krobelus. In the heart of the emerald dragon beauty, gender doesn’t matter. The key is the treasure. This guy takes the initiative to offer valuable treasures. He is really sensible. She immediately nodded in agreement.
“Charles, Betty is the most beautiful woman in the capital. She is much better than me, but she always has high requirements and despises ordinary men. It is rare for her to have a good impression of you now. This is your chance.” Isabella seemed enthusiastic to make them a pair.
In terms of appearance, Krobelus is indeed a rare beauty, but as a beauty, whether it is eating, drinking, or robbing, she can only be described as a weirdo… No wonder no one dares to approach this area and to invite her to dance. They would probably come with a wealth of money and run back penniless.
“Ms. Krobelus is very powerful. I’m still far short of it. I don’t dare to have this extravagant hope.” Chen Rui shook his head quickly. Maybe only the same weirdo like Paglio could get along well with this fierce lady.
“No matter how powerful a woman is, she’s just a woman.” Isabella sighed, her expression gave people a feeling of pity. Her eyes turned, seeming to imply something.
“What are you talking about?” The central character of the issue, Ms. Krobelus, had just awakened from the charm of the treasure now, so she was completely ignorant of what they were talking about previously.
Isabella held Krobelus’ hand tightly, “I’m saying that our lonely Ms.Betty needs a lover, and Charles is the most suitable candidate.”
“No way! I have only one man in my heart, so I don’t want a lover!” Krobelus shook her head resolutely as she said to Chen Rui righteously, “Don’t think that a little gem can move me. Put away your little attempt!”
Though she said so, she held the “little” gem tightly. Even if a man wanted to “back out”, it would be impossible to take it back.
Seeing Ms.Emerald Dragon’s steadfast expression, Chen Rui secretly sweated, “Ms.Krobelus has misunderstood. It is just a joke by Isabella. The gem is my bet that I lost to you. How can I take it back?” Krobelus seemed to calm down a bit, but Isabella shook her head disapprovingly, “Betty, you are too stubborn. Isn’t that guy named Ranieri dead already? And it’s been so long…”
When Chen Rui heard of the name Ranieri’s accidentally, he didn’t feel anything at first, but he cringed when he suddenly thought of something.
The name Ranieri sounded very ordinary in the Demon Realm just like the name “Arthur”. There were at least several thousands of them if not more. If Chen Rui didn’t know the race of Krobelus, he really wouldn’t be bothered.
However, the beauty in front of me is an emerald dragon, so her man named Ranieri (most likely a dragon) who has died a long time ago, is it…Chen Rui tentatively asked to confirm, “Pardon me for intruding, this man, Ranieri…”
“Ranieri was killed by someone!” Krobelus showed her teeth, and her eyes exuded murderous intention which was completely different from the pretense of the previous robbery. “Although it has been many years, and the enemy is very powerful, I’ll always remember this hatred. I must find that enemy and avenge him!”
Chen Rui’s heart plummeted. It was almost certain that Ranieri was the blue dragon that was killed in the battle with the poison dragon Paglio to fight for the mysterious silver box. Originally, he wanted Paglio to use love to win her over, but he didn’t dare to have this idea now.
The hatred of killing her husband! The poison dragon seal had not been solved now, so his power only recovered to the Demon Emperor realm. If he really faced Krobelus, perhaps he would be made into a roasted dragon.
Judging from Krobelus’s performance, after 2000 years, the hatred had not subsided. This was an indissoluble hatred.
Chen Rui had an idea and said, “I’m sorry to mention the sad past of the lady. If the lady doesn’t mind my limited power, I will help you by then.”
“The power of this enemy is very strong, and your strength is too weak.” Krobelus said it directly, “But your poison-resolving skills should be useful. Let’s talk about it by then.”
Ms.Emerald Dragon certainly didn’t know that the so-called help from this guy was nothing more than shouting, “Comrade, I will help you!”, but stabbing his comrade from the back.
“Unexpectedly, Betty and Charles really get along well.” Isabella smiled, “Should we find a time to go out and relax tomorrow? I heard that rainbow seems to have appeared again in the Rainbow Valley area recently. I don’t know if I can have this luck to see the real Rainbow Valley?”
Chen Rui’s heart moved. He had not been able to get the requiem fruit needed to save the Earth Elemental King in the underground world of Mountain Xilang. It would not be long before the one-year period. Once the time has passed, the requiem fruit could no longer repair the earth elemental heart. Then the Earth Elemental King and elemental heart would really be dead.
The encounter of Earth Elemental King Moore and Chen Rui was just due to the Glorfin incident at the underground in Mountain Xilang. By right, Athena had completely recovered now and Glorfin had disappeared. In a sense, Earth Elemental King had lost his value, so it would be fine even if Chen Rui didn’t care about him.
However, Chen Rui would not do this because Moore was his true friend. Although the fact that he saved the earth elemental underground was enough to offset Moore’s kindness to help Athena, they were friends after all.
Chen Rui always kept the matter of requiem fruit in his mind. He had never forgotten that. He even once requested Catherine the Great for the requiem fruit in public in the Dark Shadow capital’s mechanic contest, but the Dark Shadow Empire did not have such a rare fruit.
He remembered Master Xingxing once said that there was a Rainbow Valley under the jurisdiction of the Fallen Angel Capital. Every time a rainbow appeared there, the valley would appear. When the rainbow disappeared, the valley would disappear again. Someone had strayed into the valley and found a growing requiem fruit there, but he was transported dozens of kilometers away before he could pick it.
The appearance of the Rainbow Valley had no fixed time. Sometimes it was a few months, sometimes several years, and sometimes hundreds of years. Hearing that Isabella said that the Rainbow Valley had recently shown signs of rainbows, Chen Rui, who had originally wanted to go there, became more determined.
Krobelus seemed to recall something and frowned, “I once passed by the Rainbow Valley and felt an unusually dangerous breath there. Yini, you shouldn’t go to that place.”
Chen Rui was secretly surprised. Even a powerhouse like Krobelus felt that it is dangerous. It seems that the Rainbow Valley is not simple, but in order to get the requiem fruit, this trip is imperative. However, if I am going to the Rainbow Valley, I must go alone. It is impossible to bring Isabella or Krobelus along.
“Yini, you should know that my situation is quite urgent. I will leave the capital in these 2 days, and it will take half a month to return at the earliest.” Chen Rui showed an apologetic expression, “I will definitely accompany the two beautiful ladies to go out and have a good time next time. I’ll never refuse.”
“Old mother doesn’t want to go out with a man… Uh, wait!” Krobelus suddenly thought of something, and shook the gem in her hand, “We can go out and have fun, but you have to hand over what you have in exchange of that… Uh… Give a gift that is eye-catching.”
Typical dragon-style greed.
Chen Rui secretly despised the integrity of this emerald female dragon, but he still maintained a graceful smile on his face, “Don’t worry, the lady will be satisfied.”
Isabella nodded, “Okay, all set. Coincidentally, I also need to deal with some small matters in these 2 days.”
In fact, this “small matter” was something that happened in the Dark Moon.
The human sheriff, Chen Rui, who had been in “coma” due to Isabella’s evil voodoo, unexpectedly revived.
Rainbow Valley… what would Chen Rui encounter this time?
