The courtyard of the sheriff residence.
Paglio was lying on his huge gold crystal bed while playing with the new products of the Princess Retail Store, card game, boringly. This damn dragon actually put his bed in the yard!
Does he want to enjoy the feeling of sleeping on the pile of money all the time, or is it a kind of “flaunting wealth” instinct at work?
Chen Rui recalled the 4 dragons he knew. Whether it was the poison dragon, emerald dragon, fairy dragon or crystal dragon, there did not seem to be any normal types. Each had their own “weirdness”.
Are all dragons weirdos?
At this moment, Paglio said, “Dodo, why does it take so long this time? Have you bought the wine?”
Chen Rui’s complexion became stiff. This fellow actually asks Dodo to… go out and help him buy wine!
“Quickly bring it over!” Paglio said unceremoniously, “I know you must have drank secretly outside just now. Don’t even think of getting a share of my wine now!”
Chen Rui had an idea. He walked over with a bottle of wine in his hand.
“It’s a pleasure to think of using this guy as a servant! This greedy human embezzled uncle’s treasure!” Paglio took the wine, and he was still muttering. As he opened the wine cork and just took a sip, he spurted out, “What the hell is this! Damn slime!”
Before he finished speaking, he saw the little black horse that had been resting in the distance running over to cuddle “Dodo” for a while. Paglio’s eyes widened. The Incubus Beast had always been very cold toward Dodo. Not giving him [Thunder] was not bad already, yet this time…
The poison dragon suddenly realized it. He got up from the bed hastily and grinned, “It turns out that you cunning guy is back! Damn it, you lied to me. Give me a bottle of good wine to compensate me!”
“Compensate your ass! Is it interesting to instruct me as a servant?” Chen Rui touched the little black horse and fed it with a handful of aura fruit. He snorted at the poison dragon angrily, “This bottle just now is a gift from a dragon who gave it back to me. The secret hangover soup. It tastes good right!”
Speaking of the emerald dragon, Chen Rui was really speechless. After receiving several gems from him, she actually gave him a bottle of the so-called “secret” hangover soup in return at the ball last time. The purpose of this rebate was naturally to get more gems.
Chen Rui guessed that this bottle was probably from the ball with zero investment cost. A standard cheapskate. It seems that Krobelus has one other attribute besides her love for money: stingy!
After Paglio took the bottle of wine thrown by Chen Rui, he carefully sniffed it so as not to be fooled again. Then he took a gulp with confidence.
“Did you just say dragon?”
“Speaking of which, this dragon should be regarded as your acquaintance…” Chen Rui relayed the Krobelus incident.
Paglio looked suspicious, “Krobelus? How come I haven’t heard that the blue dragon has such a woman? Did you get it wrong? Ranieri has a quirk. He doesn’t seem to like female dragons.”
Chen Rui was stunned. The gossip mood ignited in his heart. Paglio didn’t know that there is a dragon called… Krobelus? Ranieri is even a gay? Then Paglio had a grudge with the blue dragon… Is it because he rejected his… love? Or the 2 people turned from love to hate…
Seeing Chen Rui’s weird gaze, Paglio cringed secretly and said, “Ranieri likes demon women, especially the Great Demon and succubus. How could there be a female dragon suddenly said that she wants to avenge him?”
“Could it be that I got it wrong?” Chen Rui was a little confused too. Could it be that this is not that Ranieri? The “man” mentioned by the emerald dragon is someone else?
“You must have made a mistake!”
“Perhaps.” Chen Rui suddenly showed a strange smile, “But there is one thing that is absolutely unmistakable. This time, I really met your old friend.”
“Who is that ugly thing?” Poison dragon used an idiom learned from Chen Rui and felt proud of it, but he didn’t know there was another idiom called “birds of a feather flock together”.
“Objectively speaking, she is a very beautiful woman with purple hair and purple eyes. She usually wears a pair of glasses and likes to wear a long skirt. At certain times… she will be in a daze, and…”
When talking about the beauty with purple hair and purple eyes, Paglio seemed to have thought of something. The next description of glasses, long skirts and daze made the normally fearless poison dragon change his facial expression suddenly. He uttered a few words with difficulty, ” You… you actually met that crazy woman?”
“If I said that she came to the Dark Moon with me, how would you react?”
“Don’t joke about this!” Paglio was startled, “If that crazy woman really comes to the Dark Moon, I have to escape!”
The fairy dragons’ magic talent was too terrifying. She could easily launch the powerful Dragon Inscription to the extreme, especially Zola was also proficient in magic circles and other methods. It could be said that she was the most powerful magician in the Demon Realm. Only the crystal dragon and the black dragon who were born with [Anti-Magic] were not afraid of her. Even at his peak, Paglio was fearful of this woman. However, under the huge benefits of the silver box, the dragon’s curiosity and the greedy nature made Paglio finally take the initiative to attack. He sneak attacked Zola and succeeded. Then, he was scared witless and kept escaping until he was sealed by a mysterious powerhouse.
With the grievances between the poison dragon and the fairy dragon, she would definitely beat him brutally till half-dead once she saw him before probing about the treasure’s whereabouts.
“You’re just fleeing for your life! I have just escaped from that woman’s clutches!” Chen Rui gritted his teeth.
Paglio was not completely afraid of Zola. More importantly, Zola was related to the lifting of his biggest seal. He did not argue back as usual at the moment. Instead, he hurriedly asked, “Don’t keep me guessing. How did you meet that crazy woman? Come on, say it!”
Chen Rui reiterated what he had experienced during the days when he lived in the Rainbow Valley. When it came to the sad part, the poison dragon unexpectedly did not gloat. Instead, he shivered with empathy.
“Hmph! If it wasn’t because I want to get a way to break your seal from Zola, would I risk my life and go to that terrible place as an experiment subject? Meanwhile, you only have treasure in your mind!”
“It’s really hard for you, my most reliable partner.” Paglio showed a rare conscience and added decisively, “If this is the case, I will give you 1% more of the treasure that I put with you.
“1%?” Chen Rui’s eyes widened. Are you sure there are no other decimals in front of “1%”?
“1%!” Paglio looked righteous as if he was cutting his flesh to feed the eagle.
Chen Rui was quite speechless. Money is a trivial matter. His entire treasure is now in my hands. The problem is… I worked hard in the Rainbow Valley, and it is worth… 1% only?
Seeing the look of this damn dragon, he clearly said these words reluctantly.
This dead dragon seems to have something in common with the female dragon.
Chen Rui shook his head, “I think for the sake of my life, it is better not to go to Zola.”
Paglio’s eyes twitched, “2%. This is the final bottom line. You are cutting the flesh of a dragon!”
“Ancient runes are still too difficult for me.”
“2% cannot be changed anymore! Otherwise I would rather not dispel the seal!”
“Oh!” Chen Rui seemed to just remember something. He deliberately said to himself, “I almost forgot, this time the plan used a lot of money. It seems that there is not much left from the entire treasure…”
“What? I’ll fight with you!” The poison dragon, who was hit by the news that came like a bombshell, bared his teeth and fang and wanted to choke Chen Rui by the neck, then Delia and Athena walked in the courtyard.
Recently, the population of the city had suddenly increased. There was a great challenge in public security. Athena’s face was obviously tired.
Delia saw the posture of the 2 and was taken aback, “Dodo, what are you doing with Paglio?”
“That’s not Dodo…” Athena looked at the calm “Dodo” and the rampaging poison dragon. Her initial fatigue disappeared suddenly as her beautiful red eyes glowed with surprise.
After finally explaining about the treasure, the poison dragon stopped rampaging. He grabbed a few bottles of wine, and drank it by himself.
Chen Rui learned from Delia that with his help, Roman’s [The Eye of Evil] advanced successfully and subjugated the Demon Emperor-level evil eye tyrant as a lifelong companion beast. After returning to the Dark Moon, Roman immediately started training behind closed-doors with a hope to a further leap in power.
“If it weren’t for the leader this time, Roman would be dead, let alone break through or get the Demon Emperor-level lifelong companion beast. Leader seems to have even wasted a bottle of resurrection potion.” Delia showed gratitude, “I know that the heartless bastard never knows how to express his feelings…”
“It’s not that he doesn’t know how to express himself.” Chen Rui shook his head. “It’s just that there is no need to express. The same is true for you, Delia.”
Athena held Delia’s hand on the side. She glanced at Athena, then at Chen Ru. Her gaze was glowing with a calm look as she nodded.
“However, I think your phrase ‘heartless’ is more appropriate to give it to some guy.” Chen Rui glanced at the dragon on the side.
The dragon pretended not to hear. All is good as long as my treasures are fine.
At this moment, Kia hurriedly rushed to the courtyard. Seeing Chen Rui from a distance, she was taken aback, “Dodo, it turns out that you are here…”
Seeing Chen Rui’s playful eyes, the succubus immediately realized it. She said with joy, “Ah, you are back…”
Athena asked, “Kia, why are you in a panic?”
“The little princess is missing!” Kia looked a little anxious, “I haven’t seen her for a long time. Later, someone said that a few hours ago, she and Chen Rui… it should be Dodo, rode the tri-horned rhino out from the east gate and went all the way toward east! This incident has already alarmed Princess Royal.”
“Toward east?” Athena reacted immediately. She suddenly stood up and exclaimed, “Is Alice going to the Blue Lake Mountain Range for treasure hunting?”
“I thought so too, so I immediately came to Paglio for help.” Kia nodded.
The treasure plan was a top secret. Apart from the few people present, only Shea and Old Gauss knew about it. They did not disclose it to Alice.
“Treasure” was arranged by Paglio and Chen Rui. It was a huge maze combining magic circles and Dragon Inscription. Without Paglio or Chen Rui leading the way, even Athena and the others would not be able to get in. Last time, the Fountain of Vitality was “discovered” because Paglio pretended to be a garrison guard and guided her to find it.
Dark Moon had gathered so many treasure hunters now, but none of them could really crack it. It could be seen that the maze was complicated. There were many deadly magic circles and inscriptions, so Kia was so anxious.
Athena squeezed her fist and seemed to be blaming herself, “She even pestered me a few days ago and told me to accompany her, but I was too busy. Plus, it is very dangerous there, so I didn’t promise her. If I knew it earlier, I’ll just go and satisfy her curiosity!”
The little loli was indeed a brave character. When Athena was only an Intermediate Demon previously, she went to dangerous places like the black rainforest with Athena. Now, she even secretly took Dodo to hunt for treasure now.
“It’s not your fault. It is because of the troublemaker! I’ll go to the Blue Lake Mountain Range!” Chen Rui knew that time was pressing, so he got up abruptly.
I just came back and still haven’t had the time to be intimate with Athena and Kia. Yet I encountered this kind of thing. Seems like the little loli is really a troublemaker.
“En, you must bring Alice back.”
Athena knew that the magic circles in the treasure were intricate, so it would only be a waste of time if she followed him. As she thought of something, she dragged him and added, “Don’t blame her, she seems to be in a bad mood recently. ”
Chen Rui nodded indifferently, “Don’t worry, it’s just a kid messing around. How can I blame her?”
Athena glanced at him, “She… is not a kid.”
Despite Dodo’s company, Alice’s situation was still dangerous. Chen Rui didn’t waste any time. He disguised his face, rode on the little black horse and left the house. After leaving the city, he began to rush eastward.
Along the way, he could see many treasure hunters going back and forth. Chen Rui ignored the attention of the passers-by and urged the Incubus Beast to move forward at full speed. The passers-by only saw a black spot from a distance quickly magnifying into a dark horse. After swiftly going past them, it soon disappeared in the distance behind them.
Chen Rui sprinted all the way and came to the entrance area of the Blue Lake Mountain Range “treasure” at the fastest speed. Although the little black horse had not changed into the true form of Incubus Beast, that majestic horse had attracted the attention of many people.
As soon as he got off the horse, he was stared at by a few demons with an evil gaze. I can tell that these guys have been wandering around here all day.
“Hey!” A Great Demon who looked like a small boss came over, “No wonder I can’t find my horse. It was stolen by you, bastard! If you don’t want to die, return it to me immediately. Otherwise…”
Before he finished speaking, the man walked over with the horse and glanced at him. The Great Demon stopped speaking abruptly. His body seemed to be deterred by something. He didn’t dare to move. This situation caused the henchmen who were about to surround him to freeze.
The nearby treasure hunters knew that this group of people always bullied the weak and feared the powerful ones. It seemed like they messed up with the wrong guy this time.
“I’m looking for 2 people. A 13- or 14-year-old girl with blond hair, followed by a man…” Chen Rui didn’t have time to care about these small potatoes. He simply described the appearance of Alice and “himself”.
“These 2 people seem to have entered the mountain road on the left.” The Great Demon quickly replied. He felt the terrifying gaze slowly moving away, but he still did not dare to move.
The henchmen only dared to surround him after seeing this man disappeared from sight.
“Boss Richardson, why don’t you simply point the wrong way to this guy?”
The Great Demon wiped the cold sweat from his face as he said with lingering fear, “That person is very terrifying. Just looking at me makes me feel like my soul is annihilated. If I dare to say something nonsense, I’m afraid I will be truly annihilated!”
Chen Rui didn’t have the time to bother these people’s discussions. He left the little black horse in a safe place and said a few words to it. He then disappeared into the “treasure” maze.
Hmmm… the emerald dragon’s boyfriend is gay 🤔. It seems like someone is lying🤥.
