The reason Chen Rui wanted to leave Rainbow Valley was not as Zola thought. It was because the half-month deadline he promised to Obsidian was about to come. That plan must be further implemented. Moreover, the earth elemental heart had been completely repaired, so he needed to go to Mountain Xilang to wake up the sleeping king.
“Don’t worry, I just use requiem fruit to save an important friend. I will be back within half a month at most.” (Moved with emotion)
The fairy dragon seemed to listen distractedly, but she did not nod her head.
——If it’s me doing the housework and being an experiment subject without being paid, plus being squeezed and exploited from time to time, I would’ve run away long ago. Since I’ve caught such a fool now, I can’t let him go like this.
“I can use Richard’s name to guarantee…” (Sweared by the curse)
The fairy dragon still looked dazed, occasionally saying “Oh”. It was completely different from the concentration and seriousness in her daily experiment. She still did not nod.
——Are you kidding? I’ve used this trick a long time ago. Besides, I’m not a fool. Who knows whether Richard’s name is true or not?
Chen Rui knew that nothing would work when she looked dazed, so he had to sacrifice the last magic weapon.
“Well, I can use a mysterious treasure as a mortgage. If I don’t come back, the most important treasure will belong to you.”
(Hmph! Sure enough, he has hidden treasures, but what treasures are more valuable than a free servant and experiment subject like you?)
Nevertheless, hearing the word treasure, the miss naturally was interested.
When Chen Rui took out something, Zola’s eyes widened suddenly. Even when she saw the best materials or precious possessions, she did not have such a shocking appearance. This expression was definitely not her usual pretense or fake daze. She was really stunned.
It was a stone slab. The material was very special. It was like gold and not wood. Even with the eyes of the mechanic master, Chen Rui, it was impossible to analyze the specific composition of the stone slab material. There was a strange mark on the slab. It seemed to be a symbol.
Before Chen Rui could speak, he felt his hands were light. The stone slab had fallen into Zola’s hands.
“Sure enough, this is it,” Zola’s eyes were still fixed on the stone slab in her hand. With a rare shock in her tone, “It has been 2000 years already…”
The reaction of the fairy dragon was completely expected by Chen Rui. The crystal dragon snatched 6 stone slabs of ancient runes from her in the past, then his whereabouts were unknown. It was finally returned to the original owner now, but it was not returned as a whole because Chen Rui still had 5 slabs in his hands. This one was to catch the fish… catch the dragon.
“Miss Zola! You know this symbol? I have studied it for a long time, but it seems to be a very old language, but I can’t figure it out.”
“This is the rune of ancient runes…” Zola’s fingers moved gently on the stone slab, and the symbol instantly turned into hundreds of luminous runes. They were suspended in the air as they were constantly changing. It almost dazzled Chen Rui’s eyes.
Chen Rui did study these slabs, but he surely never saw such a phenomenon before. Zola must have used some special method just now. It seemed that Paglio was right. Zola was indeed one of the few people who knew ancient runes in the Demon Realm. This “very few” also included Demi-God super powerhouses whose whereabouts were a mystery.
Judging from the current situation, Zola was the only hope for Paglio to get out of trouble.
Chen Rui immediately activated the [Deep Analysis] and engraved all the changes of these symbols in his memory. With a move of Zola’s finger, the hundreds of runes disappeared again and turned back to the stone slab. However, that cold and lifeless stone slab seemed to be full of vitality and crystal clear now. It seemed that the owner could really make the best use of the slab. If it was put in his hands or the crystal dragon, these slabs could only be regarded as pearls covered with dust.
“It turns out to be ancient runes. It is said to be lost since the death of the Demon Realm’s grand master, Lolo 9000 years ago. I never thought that Miss Zola is proficient in this! Your knowledge is so profound!” Chen Rui looked excited.
Taking the stone slab out now could be a logical excuse for learning ancient runes in the future.
Zola’s excitement gradually calmed down, and she asked, “Where did you get this stone slab?”
“It was given to me by my friend, Moore, who I ms going to save. Not long before, he fell asleep because of his soul damage. It happened that this requiem fruit can rescue him.”
“Moore?” Zola looked suspicious, but after 2000 years, she didn’t know if anything happened to Jacob. It was possible that the stone slabs fell into the hands of other people.
“I heard Moore said that this stone slab should be part of a complete object. I don’t know if he still knows the whereabouts of the rest.”
Zola’s eyes lit up. Besides this one, there should be 5 more. If he can learn the whereabouts from that Moore…
“Are you really willing to come back again? Or, shall I go with you?”
“No, there are still many experiments that cannot be interrupted.” Chen Rui will first play Charles to go to the capital. He definitely would not agree to go with the fairy dragon. Moreover, the Earth Elemental King Moore had nothing to do with these stone slabs. He would surely be exposed then.
“Don’t worry, I will surely come back. I can continue to be the miss’ assistant or even the experiment subject without any payment. I can even give this stone slab to miss! But I have a small request, miss must teach me the ancient runes knowledge!”
“Is it just this request? You really don’t want… anything else?” Although Zola didn’t intend to “return” the stone slab to Chen Rui when she first saw it, she was still a little surprised when she heard what he said.
In fact, Chen Rui also knew that Zola definitely would not return the slab. The phrase “gift” was just a bargain. His focus was to set off his attempt to learn later.
“Nothing is more valuable than knowledge! Miss, please promise me!” Chen Rui stepped forward excitedly, wanting to express his strong will with his body language. He even accidentally grabbed Zola’s hands which were holding the slab.
It seems very smooth and delicate…
Chen Rui was also taken aback.
Zola didn’t rampage quickly as he imagined, but she stayed in a daze as if she was rather slow-witted. She actually nodded her head and commented first, “Indeed, there is nothing more valuable than knowledge.”
“Okay! I agree to let you go! Don’t forget to come back soon!”
As soon as she finished talking, Chen Rui only felt his hand tight. She was “actively” holding him back. Then he had a chill as a terrifying electric current was transmitted along the contact part, “Buzz…”
“Parting is really sad.” Miss fairy dragon turned her head sadly with a touch of shyness. A faint mist appeared in her glasses lens. She couldn’t bear to see the burnt body with exploding hair on the ground.
As though it was not her that caused all this but someone else.
For a long time, the figure coughed up a few puffs of black smoke— This terrible woman! Behind the attribute tags of maniac experimenter, no lower limit of moral value and fake silly daze, there should be another hidden tag, blackhearted!
After a lot of setbacks, Chen Rui finally left the beautiful Rainbow Valley and the beautiful cobra… miss dragon. His destination was the Fallen Angel Capital.
When Chen Rui appeared in front of Isabella again, Isabella was chatting with Krobelus in the mansion. Chen Rui clearly saw that there was a hint of surprise in the coquettish smile of the Imperial City’s Flower. He was not sure whether she was more surprised or joyful. However, when she saw the sea-blue bead chain presented by Chen Rui, Isabella’s eyes obviously lit up.
It seemed that sometimes women were like dragons, always unable to resist shiny and expensive things.
This was a definite case for the female dragon. Krobelus was even more exaggerated when he saw the sea-blue bead chain. Her eyes almost glowed with faint blue light. Fortunately, Chen Rui gave her another large gem which made her smile.
The emerald dragon, who had insatiable desire, was holding the gem tightly in her hand, but her eyes were still fixed on the bead chain in Isabella’s hand.
“Yini seems to be surprised by my appearance?” Chen Rui smiled, “Do you think I will disappear with 1 billion black crystal coins?”
“1 Billion…” This number immediately attracted Krobelus’ attention. Chen Rui nodded secretly. It seems that the emerald dragon doesn’t know the plan. Perhaps she is not really a core figure under Obsidian.
“Why would I?” Isabella gave him a sullen look, “It’s just that men are all liars. Maybe you are a more patient liar. Betty, what do you think?”
These words seemed to be half-serious and half-joking. Chen Rui was secretly vigilant, not daring to lose the slightest caution in his heart. Krobelus nodded immediately, “Yes, but my Ranieri is an exception.”
Of course, a dead dragon can’t lie anymore… Chen Rui shrugged, “When wealth accumulates to a certain level, it is just a boring number. If I can, I would rather ‘steal’ the heart of a beautiful lady so that she thinks about me every day.”
“Really?” Isabella smiled more charmingly, “So, which lady is lucky enough to be favored by Charles? Could it be our Betty?”
“Think about you every day? Stop dreaming,” Krobelus showed disdain. Suddenly, she rolled her eyes, “But you are a good person. It’s not impossible if you want me to think about you, but you have to give me a gem every day…”
“It’s my gem that you think about every day.” Chen Rui rolled his eyes at the greedy emerald dragon. Isabella burst into laughter beside him. This interlude changed the sensitive topic of the previous “liar”.
The 3 chatted for a while. Krobelus was going to leave when Chen Rui came. When she saw that there were no more gems to receive, she immediately got up and left.
After the emerald dragon left, Isabella smiled and said, “Charles, you should go to the palace immediately. Let’s get the business done first. You have the magic badge of a high rank consultant, so you can go in and out of the palace freely. I believe the Regent Royal Highness will be glad to see you.”
Chen Rui nodded, “I understand. I will go now.”
Isabella looked serious as she said, “I have been fighting very closely with Rommel these days. You have to be careful of this person. He doesn’t know your identity and plan, so he might think that you are on my side. Rommel is cruel. He is very likely to harm you.”
“If I am going against Rommel, isn’t it what Yini likes to see?” Chen Rui gave her a profound look, then he stood up and bowed slightly, “However, I’m willing to help you, the lady who I think about every day .”
After finishing speaking, he turned around and left without further delay.
Isabella’s blue eyes moved. As she looked at the magnificent blue bead in her hand, a complex expression flashed over her charming face.
Guys… shiny and expensive things😏💍💎
