Handyman as well as experiment assistant… and experiment subject.
The above was the daily life of the deputy valley owner (self-appointed) of the Rainbow Valley.
The first 2 were not bad, but the most creepy was the third. Chen Rui seemed to have returned to the time when he just came to the Demon Realm and met Aldas. However, when the dark elf master was compared with the miss fairy dragon, he was as harmless as a little white rabbit.
After Zola discovered the [Anti-Magic] characteristics of his body, Chen Rui had to accept all kinds of bizarre magic “baptisms” every day. The fairy dragon tried her best to break through his [Anti-Magic] body. However, the attributes given by the Super System were extremely powerful. Even if it was a powerful Dragon Inscription magic, his body could reduce half of the damage.
Miss fairy dragon persevered in her attempt while someone’s screaming echoed in the colorful magic light, resounding throughout the Rainbow Valley.
For the requiem fruit and ancient runes, I have to grit my teeth and persevere.
Why am I doing this for two gay friends?
Instead of beauties?
Tears flowed down his face…
“Are you sure there is only numbness and pain?” Zola fell on the ground with a puzzled face. She asked Chen Rui, whose body was exuding smoke, “Want to try again? The last time!”
“It’s the third ‘last time’! You can’t say anything else? If I do it again, I will really die!” Chen Rui almost turned into a barbecue by the magic explosion just now. He said weakly, “Since I am like this now, I can’t make dinner later.”
“It’s okay. Didn’t I ask you to make more at noon? Even if you faint to death, I will still have something to eat.”
Chen Rui had a sudden realization. No wonder she praised the bacon pancake so much at noon and asked me to make a few more pieces. I initially thought that she wanted to keep it for supper. I didn’t expect this kind of premeditation. He secretly vowed that he would make a fixed amount for 3 meals a day in the future so that he would never be fooled again!
“You should have felt that there is an active poison in your body that can completely collapse your body’s defensive ability just now. That kind of poison is the real killer move hidden in this flame magic.” Zola frowned and said to herself, “Could it be a difference in physique? Or is there something special about this guy’s physique?”
In fact, that poison power was absorbed by the Super System, but unfortunately the damage of magic could not be absorbed completely. Chen Rui feared that she would discover the secrets of [Regeneration] and [Damage Absorption], so he shook his head quickly, “Definitely not, you must have mistaken!”
“Impossible. I personally tried several times last time, and I clearly felt that kind of…”
“You personally.” Chen Rui just experienced it personally. He knew how unbearable the pain was. The physique of the fairy dragon should be the weakest among the dragons, and it didn’t have the [Anti-Magic] attributes like the crystal dragon or the black dragon, but she actually…
“I said that the best knowledge comes from practice. This is the quality that a great researcher should possess.” Fairy Dragon said triumphantly, preparing to be admired by her assistant.
Chen Rui had goosebumps at the moment. No wonder Paglio once said, “In order to experiment, that crazy woman can dissect herself without hesitation.”
Zola can be so cruel to herself, then her assistant who is actually an experiment subject, isn’t it…
“Okay, that’s it for today. You drink this bottle of potion first. The experiment will continue tomorrow. Take a good rest.”
Zola had an empathetic and caring appearance. In fact, she hoped that the experiment subject would quickly recover to be in a normal state so that the next experiment could be carried out. She added, “As long as you can persist until the end of the month, I will give you the requiem fruit.”
“That’s not right!” Although Chen Rui was a little dizzy, he was still quite sober about the requiem fruit. “What you said 3 days ago was that as long as I can cooperate with you to complete the three-day experiment, you will give me the requiem fruit. Why have you changed your mind now!”
“Did I say that?” The fairy dragon looked like she couldn’t remember anything. This appearance gave Chen Rui a bad feeling secretly. He was ready to “sacrifice” in advance.
“Richard, you heard it wrong!” Chen Rui didn’t say a word. He revealed a look of “as expected”.
Zola shook her head resolutely, “You must have remembered it wrong! I solemnly promise by Zola’s name now…”
Before Zola finished her words, a crystal in Chen Rui’s hand began to speak in the same tone. It was even the full version, “I solemnly promised by the name of Zola that as long as you cooperate with me to finish these 3-day experiments, let alone a requiem fruit, I can give you the entire requiem fruit tree!”
Chen Rui was secretly proud. I knew your virtues long ago. Fortunately, I kept some evidence. Let’s see what Zola has to say now.
Zola was stunned and turned around. Without warning, the recording stone in Chen Rui’s hand suddenly became lighter. It turned into a pool of powder and fell to the ground.
“What sound is that?” The fairy dragon turned her head and asked curiously with a clueless appearance.
Chen Rui pointed at Zola. He was so angry that he could hardly speak. Neither a man nor a dragon can’t be so shameless to this level!
Is there a lower limit for your moral integrity?
“Honestly, how long does this damn demonic experiment take?”
Zola didn’t pretend to be stupid this time. She thought about it seriously, “It will probably take at least 3 months?”
“3 months? Didn’t you just say it was the end of the month?” If he wasn’t tired, Chen Rui almost wanted to jump up to scold her.
“Oh, I see……”
Before Zola continued to habitually be “in a daze”, Chen Rui had already spoken first, “The requiem fruit is very important to me. I know I’m not your opponent, but if you really want a like-minded person who will cooperate with you to experiment and truly assist you, then give me the requiem fruit now. Otherwise, you will only get a numb experiment subject that will never do anything or say a word again.”
“Unfortunately, I hate threats the most.”
A ray of light flashed through her glasses as Zola’s complexion became cold. Her purple hair slowly fluttered without wind blowing.
“Moreover, you are just a weak experiment subject. You are not qualified to blackmail me!”
Don’t forget that this was the peak Demon Overlord-level fairy dragon. Even the poison dragon at his peak previously would have to run away with fear.
Chen Rui felt the elemental breath around him getting stronger. It was different from the experiment normally. With a strong murderous aura, he immediately said, “My value is fully qualified to be a real assistant, instead of being your servant or experiment subject. Take your magic item for washing clothes as an example. Originally, washing with water is a good effect, but drying with fire will easily affect the quality of the clothes, and there is a considerable conflict between water and fire. It is quite difficult to control it. One carelessness can destroy the clothes. My opinion is to replace the fire element drying device with a simple device that is enchanted with a wind element magic circle. This is safer and more efficient. There is no need to consider the origin conflict between the elements. Even a person without magic power can use it easily.”
Chen Rui barely stood up and drew a demon version of the washing machine in the air. The elemental power of the fairy dragon gradually dissipated. Listening to his explanation and the structure of the wind element magic circle, her expression was quite serious. She didn’t have that “daze” look at all.
“It turns out that you are also proficient in mechanics, but what I admire more is creativity. Although it’s just a small improvement, it’s a great innovation.” Zola showed her approval. She didn’t seem indifferent just because it was just a small prop for washing clothes. Power had nothing to do with respect for knowledge and creation. Fortunately, there was still such respect.
“I still have a lot of ideas like that in my mind…”
The fairy dragon stared at him for a while as she thought about it. She finally nodded, “Alright, you will be my real assistant from now on. You can get the requiem fruit later, but you need to find ways to unlock the magic circle in front of you. I won’t help you.”
At last, she’s not dazed or saying the damn ‘last time’!
Chen Rui was excited. It is not easy to request something from the dragon! I finally have the requiem fruit, and there is hope for learning ancient runes.
“Then my job…”
“The real assistant?”
“The same as before.” (Answered dazedly)
Anyway, the fairy dragon finally bounced back from her worst morality value this time. There were no changes about the requiem fruit. Chen Rui got his wish to restore the elemental heart treasure. Even the entire requiem fruit tree was incorporated into the Galaxy Garden with Zola’s permission.
In fact, as early as many years ago, the requiem fruit became of little value after Zola completed a certain experiment, so she was generous for once. However, the fairy dragon still expressed considerable doubts as to how Chen Rui kept the requiem fruit tree. Fortunately, Chen Rui had shown his talent for “space” when he took out his belongings previously, so he managed to go around it.
Chen Rui dripped the requiem fruit juice on the earth elemental heart and the effect was immediate. The original cracks in the elemental heart began to heal gradually. The aura of the earth element became more vigorous and energetic. It would probably heal completely within a few days.
Requiem fruit was only one of Chen Rui’s purposes for staying in the Rainbow Valley. Another more important reason was the ancient runes. Moreover, there was still time for Earth Elemental King, so Chen Rui didn’t immediately think about running away. Instead, he stayed and continued to serve as the so-called “real assistant”.
Although he was still a handyman + chef + experiment subject after the title change, Chen Rui had learned a lot from the fairy dragon. His biggest gain was “space”.
Space magic was originally lost in the Demon Realm. Even Zola only knew a couple of it, but the creative ability of this fairy dragon made Chen Rui really impressed. She used the 1 or 2 magic inherited to create her own space power. This Rainbow Valley was one of her most representative works. Not only that, she also had her own separate storage space without any space props. This was already comparable to the storage space of the Super System, but the size was far from comparable to the huge storage space.
For Chen Rui, space magic was not his focus of attention, but the unique knowledge of space theory.
For example, other Demon Emperors and even Demon Overlord were still groping forward little by little or one by one. Although Chen Rui was not as powerful as they were, he already had the entire spatial structure concept of point, line and plane.
Not only the basic theory, but also the practice and power which were personally demonstrated in Zola’s experiment.
One-dimensional, two-dimensional, three-dimensional space, coupled with time and space, precisely constituted the entire world. (For concepts such as “five-dimensional and six-dimensional”, even the theory from his original world was not completely perfect, so he did not study further about it.)
Chen Rui felt that this should be the true mystery of the territory. Recalling the original Super System initialization, he seemed to have a vague understanding of the changes in space and the creation of the concept of time.
As long as he could fully comprehend this concept and truly master the power of the world, he would be able to break through the current “Megrez” and reach the next star level, “Phecda”.
The only pity was that the fairy dragon had not revealed any relevant knowledge of the ancient runes so far. In order to achieve his purpose, he must pay the price, so Chen Rui could only continue to sacrifice his own “body.”
For the fairy dragon, such an assistant really satisfied the dragon.
First of all, he was a very good experiment subject because he was much stronger than the previous demonic beasts. He was almost immortal. He could withstand those powerful experiments every time just like some kind of “cockroach” in the Demon Realm legend.
The fairy dragon had noticed that kind of special physique. It was not only physique, but also the special space storage talent and special space teleport ability (could cross general space restrictions), but Zola had not exposed the special intention of her experiment so as not to frighten him. This guy is probably hiding more treasures. Even if he is not, he is a “treasure” himself.
A good dragon not only knew how to make money, but also manage money. One must have a long-term plan for major returns. She would slowly discover this huge treasure storage.
Then, he was a very creative and capable assistant. Some clever ideas for conceiving and improvement even made the fairy dragon extremely impressed. (Of course, someone was plagiarizing ideas from another world).
In terms of mechanics, he seemed to have reached the senior master level. He had very strong hands-on ability. After some instruments were improved by him, the efficiency had been greatly improved. Many abandoned and aging props had also been repaired. He also had a unique understanding of Dragon Inscription and magic circle. Zola was even inferior to him in some aspects.
Apart from his mechanics, this guy’s culinary skills had also reached the master level. His enviable innovation was also manifested in food. Zola had never tasted such new and delicious food in thousands of years.
Unfortunately, he is not a dragon with a long life.
Unfortunately, his strength is too weak.
In short, he is a very good servant and experimental subject. Forget it, let’s call him assistant.
However, what made Zola dissatisfied was that this assistant actually proposed to leave the Rainbow Valley today.
Was the ice thunderstorm “baptism” yesterday too much?
Or the tenth “last time” I promised the day before yesterday had exceeded his range?
Or he held a grudge after he was knocked down because he inadvertently saw my chest as he added the bath water the day before yesterday?
Zola reviewed the past confusedly, but her face remained dazed.
Hmph! No matter what, I won’t let you go!
Now I feel that Paglio is really his real friend 🥺…
