Chen Rui had long expected Master Xingxing to reject Teris. In terms of the best manufacturing conditions, although the existing laboratory of the Cloak Gang was not as good as the Bloody Empire, it had an advantage which was not available in the Bloody Empire and even the entire Demon Realm, which were the refined materials. Teris might be able to provide Xingxing with some rare high purity materials, but Xingxing could use all the highest purity materials as he wished here. It was completely incomparable.
Although it was still unclear how Chen Rui produced these highest purity materials according to the “grandmaster’s” secret method, Xingxing did not need to look into these as long as Chen Rui could continue to provide him with these materials.
Not only that, in addition to his lover Ms. Sasa, there was also Skye, a like-minded close friend, and the trio-specialized mysterious genius who had the highest hope of becoming the grand master of craftsmanship.
The most important thing was that Skye’s true identity was Fonsaq, the original Vice President of the Bloody Empire Mechanic Association. He once mentioned to Xingxing that the Demon Realm’s top mechanic who was also the President of the Bloody Empire Mechanic Association, Nate, employed despicable acts of using secret techniques to seize the skills of others as well as harming Skye’s family back then. Nate’s power and influence in the Bloody Empire was very strong. Even if Skye directly exposed him, it probably would not have any effect, so Xingxing would never jump into this trap and become the nuisance’s vice president.
As soon as Teris left, the old goblin, Didi, stepped forward and reported something to Chen Rui. Master Skye wanted to see him.
Chen Rui recalled the anomaly of Skye previously, and he immediately walked toward the backyard. Master Xingxing also followed suit.
A person just walked out from the backyard. He seemed to have just left. He was also an acquaintance, the top potion master of the Dark Moon, Master Aldas.
With a hint of joy on Aldas’s face, he nodded slightly when he saw “Aguile.” Chen Rui also nodded back.
Aldas’ younger sister, Lisa, had been unwilling to forgive her elder brother who had lost all his possessions due to his passion for mechanics and did not even see his father on his deathbed. At that time, Chen Rui arranged for her to be a salesperson in the Cloak Magic Shop after rescuing her. For some reason, Lisa was attracted to Skye who lost his wife. She actually boldly pursued Skye. It was an easy matter for a woman to pursue a man. Naturally, when the old man, Skye, met a young lady, he would naturally rob the cradle…
Lisa was a very capable woman. After she got together with Skye, she also took good care of Eve and Alian. With the mediation of her lover Skye, her relationship with her brother, Aldas, began to improve. This made Master Aldas extremely grateful, so he was even more supportive of the relationship between the 2. Therefore, he came to the Cloak Gang to visit his sister again.
After Aldas left, Chen Rui saw Skye in the backyard. Under the treatment of the flower of mist and Fountain of Vitality, Skye’s curse had been completely relieved. His original aging appearance had also recovered to the usual handsomeness of a dark elf. Plus the gaze full of life experiences and the thoughtful moustache, he was considered a very attractive and mature handsome guy. No wonder he could attract Lisa.
“Sir leader!” When Skye’s daughter, Alian, saw Chen Rui’s arrival, her big eyes glowed with excitement. She stood up and jumped over, ignoring the chess game she was playing with her sister, Eve.
“Alian is getting cuter and cuter.” Chen Rui rubbed Alian’s head as usual. He glanced at the shy girl Eve who bowed at him, and he added, “Eve too.”
Eve blushed. She lowered her head and dared not look at him. There was joy in the corner of her eyes.
“Okay, your father has something to discuss with the sir leader. Let’s go in and play. Don’t disturb them.” Like a real mother, Lisa told the 2 daughters. Alian glanced at Chen Rui reluctantly before holding her sister to go into the room together with Lisa.
Lisa’s attitude toward “Aguile” was much better now, but she still muttered dissatisfiedly, “What’s so good about this guy with a mask? Both little girls like him so much…”
Skye didn’t care about Lisa’s muttering. He asked, “Has Teris left?”
The mature handsome guy used to be the upper class of the Bloody Empire, so he naturally knew the Bloody Empire’s prince.
Chen Rui nodded. Skye asked again, “What is the purpose of him visiting Master Xingxing this time?”
Xingxing said, “He wanted to invite me to the Bloody Empire as the vice president of the Mechanic Association, but I didn’t agree. I didn’t want to leave here, but Teris didn’t force me. This price of the Bloody Empire looked pleasing. That arrogant Aleus annoys me.”
Skye nodded slightly, but his face showed a solemn expression, “Xingxing, you are wrong. I would rather face Aleus than Teris. Be careful with this prince who is known as a genius…”
Xingxing was taken aback, “I think this person seems to be quite nice. His reputation in the Bloody Empire is also very good. Have you made any mistakes?”
“No mistake.” Skye’s eyes showed strong hatred. “Back then, my daughters and I were under the cover of my disciple to escape from Nate. I asked Royal Highness Teris for help. As a result, Nate’s chaser immediately found our hiding place. If it’s not for my fate, my daughters and I would have been dead in the abyss of Poison Clouds… If I say this is a coincidence, do you believe it?”
Xingxing was taken aback and said nothing.
Teris was the youngest son of Raizen the Great of the Bloody Empire. He could be described as a genius of the present era. He excelled in military and intellectual. He was also good at business, politics, pharmacy, craftsmanship and so on. He was almost an all-round genius. Furthermore, he was sweet-tempered, generous and kind , so he was very popular among the people.
The only regret was that this genius lacked the aptitude to stand alongside wisdom in terms of power talent. His progress was slow. Compared with his elder brother, Aleus, who had reached the Demon Overlord level, and several elder brothers in the Demon Emperor level, he was still stuck in the Great Demon King level.
The Bloody Empire advocated combat power the most. Raizen the Great was one of its representatives. So in a sense, the possibility of Teris inheriting the throne was almost zero. This also made him get along well with other brothers. Even the prideful Aleus, who was known for his arrogance, treated him well.
Chen Rui thought of some of the details that he had just contacted, and he nodded, “This Teris is by no means simple. In any case, we must be careful. If Teris is really in the same group with Nate, then we can boldly infer that this invitation to the master might be related to Nate’s secret technique of absorbing the skills of others. Perhaps he was “influenced” by the trio-specialized genius master, so he wants to use the back door to achieve trio-specialization to become the first grand master mechanic of the Demon Realm?”
Although back door was a new vocabulary, Skye understood the meaning immediately. He said solemnly, “I don’t deny such because Nate’s secret technique has great limitations. If the opponent’s will is firm, there will be a recoil, so deception is far more effective than captivity by force.”
“If he wants to capture me by force, I’m afraid no one can stop it.” Master Xingxing smiled bitterly, “I know the 2 people behind him, one is Montero and the other is Nielsa. Both are famous Demon Emperor powerhouses in the Bloody Empire.”
“That’s not definite…” Chen Rui’s eyes lit up. It turns out that the old man is called Nielsa. Since he is not a Demon Overlord, it is much easier to deal with him. At the Demon Emperor level, Paglio should have no opponent.
“Even if Teris has this idea, he probably won’t do it now as it will ruin his reputation. Not to mention that the master had already revealed his identity when he showed up…” Chen Rui thought quickly for a while, “I need to leave in a few days for a period of time. I’ll make certain arrangements for this matter. Master Xingxing, you should not go out as much as possible during this time. Master Skye, although your appearance can be changed with certain items, it is difficult to guarantee that you will not be exposed by the other party. Please be careful. Take care of Alian and Eve too.”
Skye nodded solemnly. His woman and children were here now. If his hiding place was exposed, the consequences would be disastrous. Moreover, the Cloak Gang and his friends would be affected.
In order to cooperate with Joseph’s “big gambling plan,” Chen Rui deliberately summoned Arux and Didi again. He carefully ordered them. After confirming that they understood, he left the Cloak Gang.
Returning to the sheriff residence, Chen Rui told Paglio about the appearance of the 2 Demon Emperor-level powerhouses. Paglio immediately patted his chest and agreed. Since the capital’s plan was about to unfold, Chen Rui couldn’t stay in the Dark Moon for a long time. In order to unlock Paglio’s seal earlier, Chen Rui used the [Deep Analysis] to record all the ancient runes on the poison dragon. The strange thing was that no one could see the symbols surrounding the poison dragon, but Chen Rui could see them very clearly from the first encounter with the poison dragon. It was probably the Super System.
These symbols were not static. They change every hour. After long-term observation previously, it should be cyclically changed 12 times a day. It would change again every 7 days. It was extremely mysterious and profound.
From the previous Rainbow Valley experience, if the fairy dragon was called to the Dark Moon to help Paglio dispel the magic, perhaps she would be more willing to study the rune on an enemy’s corpse. Furthermore, with Zola’s moral values, any promise was unreliable. This was true even if the reward was a silver box. Thus, asking for her advice on the runes by “copying” was the safest and most effective method.
However, in terms of Zola’s research achievements on the Dragon Inscription, even Paglio, who had always been self-assured in this, was also impressed. After comparing the space Chen Rui had learned when he was in the Rainbow Valley with Paglio’s special training and teaching, there had been new progress. The vague concept of territory had been faintly formed. It had changed from relying its existence on the [Galaxy Territory] to being able to operate independently, but he kept feeling that something else was lacking. Maybe he needed an opportunity to fully grasp the power of the Megrez state. It was also the most important precondition to breakthrough to the next “Phecda”.
The higher the level of power, the more difficult it was to break through. The same was true for the Super System. It was necessary to fully grasp the power of the current state before breaking through to the next level.
Chen Rui had to go out to complete 2 things on this trip. One was learning ancient runes and the other was completing the capital plan. Probably there was no time to return to the Dark Moon as he did previously.
The farewell was just around the corner. Athena and Kia were reluctant to be apart from him. In the last 3 days, they were glued together at almost every moment with the most tender and lingering feeling. Fortunately, the guy with a bad mouth had gone for secluded training. Otherwise, Chen Rui would definitely be called names like a stallion used for breeding, 7 ejaculations a night, or one whole day at a time.
In fact, compared with Athena who was usually downright and generous, the little maid who looked obedient and “honest” was much more proactive in bed. In front of her beloved man, the succubus bloomed without reservation and served wholeheartedly. The various inherited bloodline “techniques” were way better than the patterns in the love art blockbuster in his memory. This let him enjoy the romance of love affairs.
Of course, he didn’t neglect the female sheriff who was wisely regarded as the first wife by Kia.
Kia used some methods to persuade Athena so that on the last night before he left the Dark Moon, the little maid brought the shy female sheriff and appeared on his bed.
The eyes of this guy suddenly widened. He felt an unprecedented adrenaline rush. Could… could this be the legendary…three-?
That night, it was said that a wolf howl could be heard within 10 miles of the sheriff’s house…
The next day, a refreshed Chen Rui appeared on the road to the capital. In the whole plan, the most critical scene finally unfolded.
The Fallen Angel capital, when the palace’s high rank consultant, “Charles,” swaggered into the city gate, the guards seemed a little surprised. Then, Chen Rui came to Isabella’s residence through the inner city.
When Isabella heard the news of his arrival, she immediately greeted him and welcomed him into the mansion.
Isabella’s complexion showed a rare sternness. Her first sentence was, “Why do you still dare to appear publicly?”
Chen Rui asked curiously, “Why did you ask so?”
“Did you kill Lordan?”
Chen Rui asked without answering, “You mean the heir of the Lincoln Family? Is he dead?”
Isabella frowned and said, “This matter has been investigated. On the day you left the capital for the Red Spirit Estate, Lordan and the people from the Deanlie family and the Ryan family, as well as Mia from the side royal family went to look for your trouble. As a result, their bodies were found in the woods in a mountain. It was the road to the Red Spirit Estate nearby. Lordan was killed by extremely cruel methods. His corpse was not there. Only by using some secret technique did they discover that the remaining flesh and blood was… ”
“Isabella, what are you trying to say?”
“Now, Charles, it’s useless to deny it anymore. Several victim families have unanimously decided that you killed Lordan and the others. You’re in big trouble now!”
Chen Rui shook his head, “Why don’t you ask why Lordan and those people are messing up with me?”
“Whatever the reason, they are all dead now, but you’re still alive. This is your biggest trouble.” Isabella sighed, “Pierce is the chief magician of the Deanlie family while Lestin is the son-in-law of the Ryan family. He is the most hopeful person to become the Demon Emperor in the family. Lordan is the heir of the Lincoln Family. These 3 are the capital’s veteran family, let alone Mia from the royal family. This incident has already raised great commotions. Even the Royal Highness Regent might not be able to protect you!”
Chen Rui said calmly, “It’s not that he can’t protect me. It’s just that he may not be willing to do his best to protect…”
“This is a case of murder! I heard that your brother, Samuel, has escaped from the Red Spirit Estate after hearing the news. His whereabouts are still unknown. Most probably he has found a way to return to the human world.”
“There is no ‘but’! Run now!” Isabella interrupted him. “Before the guards come here, leave quickly! If you can, go back to the human world immediately and never come to the Demon Realm again!”
Why did Isabella become so concerned about Chen Rui all of a sudden? Was it a trick or love?
