General Doren Rus was taken aback when he received urgent news from the secret prison. He rushed to the secret prison immediately.
Just when he was about to arrive, he heard a loud sound. Immediately after that, there was a terrifying shake. The mutated demonic horse under Doren seat appeared so panicked that it almost turned its back down.
This loud sound was like thunder in the middle of the night. The magnitude of the tremor was quite large, almost spreading to half of the inner city. For a time, lights were lit everywhere. Many people who were disturbed by it came out to check the situation.
The direction of the loud noise was the secret prison. Doren gave up his mount without thinking. He moved quickly and disappeared immediately.
The secret prison that had always been strict had been messed up at this time. Prison 13 in the independent courtyard had completely collapsed. Affected by this terrifying power’s aftermath, most of the prisons in the secret prison had been severely damaged. Warden Kabang, the fat warden, was sweating profusely as he loudly ordered the prison guards to hunt down the prisoners who took the opportunity to escape. However, for the biggest “prisoner”, no one dared to go forward and court death.
“Charles” looked a little shabby at this time, but no one dared to underestimate this terrifying man because this prisoner had just destroyed the most unbreakable Prison 13 from the inside. That was the strongest prison to confine Demon Emperors and even Demon Overlords!
In fact, Chen Rui himself was secretly breathing a sigh of relief. Zeray’s power was much stronger than he had imagined. After the power of Dragon Inscription imprisonment was completely lifted, Chen Rui took out items from the storage space to set up a protection magic circle. He also took out the Demon Shield. That terrifying power instantly destroyed the magic circle. Fortunately he had the Demon Shield, the top armor of the Demon Realm. Otherwise, he would be in deep trouble. Of course, he could also use [Star Gate] to escape to a certain point away from the capital, but this was obviously not what he wanted.
Seeing the terrifying enemy walking in his direction step by step, Sartre’s face was full of panic. He would rather flee in public view than fighting with this crazy guy again. If he didn’t spot the opportunity previously and desperately escaped from the prison, he, the current patriarch of the Lincoln Family, would have become history like the collapsed Prison 13.
“Charles!” A bell-like scream came from the sky, overwhelming all the noisy clamor. The prison guards of the secret prison sighed in relief. The second general of the empire, Doren Rus, has finally arrived!
Sartre’s tense heart was finally relaxed. At least I don’t have to face the lunatic. The fat man Kabang, who had just calmed down a little bit, felt uneasy. In any case, he was directly responsible for today’s incident.
Chen Rui looked up and saw Doren floating in the air. Doren was condescending, and he saw the chaos of the entire prison through the moonlight, especially the scene around Prison 13. His eyes flashed with surprise, and more of it was bone chilling coldness.
Chen Rui stared at Doren, who was slowly landing, and did not panic at all. He still maintained a calm tone, “General Doren, I requested to meet the Regent Royal Highness Obsidian before. I remember your answer is people who wear the imprisonment shackles don’t have any right. I should have this right now right?”
Seeing the other party somehow showing off while raising his empty wrist, Doren’s expression became more gloomy, “Of course, I will let your corpse have this right.” “If sir general really wants to do this, then there will be more than one corpse that will meet Royal Highness Obsidian in the future. It is possible that there is also sir general, the patriarch of the Lincoln Family behind you, as well as everyone here.”
“Shameless bragging! I want to see how capable this so-called senior consultant is!” Doren already had a greatsword in his hand. This sword was 3 meters long. It was the weapon that the second general of the empire usually used, “Soul Shatter”. It seemed that although Doren’s tone showed contempt, he still didn’t underestimate this opponent in his heart. He used all his strength without hesitation.
“I believe you have seen the situation in Prison 13. This is actually not my real power, but with the help of something. I can use this item once more.”
These words changed the facial expression of Doren and Sartre at the same time. Even if the power of the Demon Emperor is not imprisoned, he is definitely unable to destroy Prison 13. Even an ordinary Demon Overlord can’t do that.
“Charles’” power has probably not reached the Demon Overlord realm. The reason why he was able to destroy Prison 13 must have been the use of some kind of magic item which “Charles” himself has admitted.
However, that item can still be used once more! This open space is not Prison 13. If the power of the previous one is really allowed to explode, everyone in this area will be wiped out.
“Sir general believes that I have this ability now? I don’t want to say anything bad. I have only one request that is to immediately meet Royal Highness Obsidian!” Chen Rui deliberately used some kind of power on his words that they spread widely.
“Are you threatening me?” Doren waved his greatsword and pointed at Chen Rui. An overbearing breath radiated from him. Even Sartre who was behind him couldn’t help but step back.
“I’m threatening you indeed!” Chen Rui sneered with an item in his hand.
“As long as I crush this with all my strength, the explosion just now will be activated again at multiplied magnitude. Probably half of the inner city and even the palace will be affected. You’re the highest commander of the imperial guards, and you are responsible for the safety of the capital. Once such a serious consequence happens, it is hard to evade the responsibility even if you died with me. By then, your family will at least be exiled!”
Doren was taken aback. “Charles” is right. If the terrifying item is activated and I died here, then the Rus Family, who had lost their asylum, might face extinction. The enmity between my son, Sergey, and Karon Family alone will cause terrifying revenge.
“Now, please send someone to inform the palace immediately. Tell them about my request.” Chen Rui said coldly, “This is the last time I use the word ‘please’.”
In fact, the so-called multiplied magnitude was just bluffing. Chen Rui was not holding Zeray either, but he knew that Doren dared not gamble, and he couldn’t afford doing so.
Sure enough, the green veins on Doren’s forehead appeared for a while, but his strength gradually converged. Seeing this, Chen Rui’s face showed a faint smile.
Half an hour later, Chen Rui’ appeared in the side hall of the palace. There was only 1 person in front of him – the highest ruler of the empire, Regent Obsidian.
Obsidian, who had received the detailed report, frowned and looked at this human without a word.
Chen Rui accepted Obsidian’s scrutinizing gaze calmly. He said, “I killed the heir of the Lincoln Family, 2 important members of the elder family, and 1 from the side royal family. I also destroyed Prison 13 of the secret prison. Regent Royal Highness, don’t you want to say something?”
Obsidian furrowed his brows even more tightly. He replied after a while, “It should be you who have something to say, Charles.”
Chen Rui heard that Obsidian had omitted the title of sir, so he shook his head, “What should I say? Saying that I took the risk to travel through space to the Demon Realm and brought huge benefits for some Angel Empire, but I encountered an ambush for no reason and was forced to fight back? Or should I say when I came to the Demon Realm again to bring more surprises to you, Royal Highness, I was caught into the darkest prison before we met. Moreover, I was nearly killed tragically by Sartre who came to ‘visit’ me in the prison?” Hearing this probing tone, Obsidian’s eyes became colder.
“Does Your Highness want to explain why I was treated so unfairly?
I’m not from the Fallen Angel Empire under your rule, nor am I from this Demon Realm! If I want to go, I can do it before I am caught up in the secret prison!” As though to prove his own words, there was a light gate in front of Chen Rui, [Star Gate]. “Why would I be willing to stay and suffer this kind of torture?”
“If it weren’t for the life-saving item I prepared with me, I would have died in that damn prison! ”
After Chen Rui finished complaining, he seemed to calm down again, “Your Highness, before we decide whether to continue our cooperation, you should take a look at the gift I brought you!”
“Gift?” Obsidian slightly raised his brows and asked rhetorically.
Chen Rui saw that Obsidian did not receive the gift he gave Isabella. It seemed that what Rommel said was true, but he did not expose the matter. Instead, he took out another box and opened it. It slowly drifted toward Obsidian under his power control.
Obsidian stretched out his hand. His action of receiving the box seemed casual, but it actually contained powerful strength. He was beware of some means by this human who destroyed Prison 13, but the expected thing did not happen. There was an exquisite crystal bottle in the box. Obsidian was a person who knew the value of goods. At a glance, he could see that this crystal bottle had exquisite craftsmanship, and its value was extraordinary. There was some black liquid in the crystal bottle. There was a delicate little sign on the side.
When Obsidian glimpsed at the words on the sign, his gaze suddenly froze.
There were only 2 words on the sign: Resurrection potion.
This is a black potion!
It is even 1 of the 2 black potions that represents the highest level of grand master!
“This is” Obsidian couldn’t help asking another question. If this is really a resurrection potion, then I must re-evaluate the value of “Charles”!
“I think with Your Highness’ eyesight, you should be able to see the 2 words on the sign. That’s right, this is the highest-level grand master black potion, resurrection potion!”
Seeing Obsidian’s shocked expression, Chen Rui showed a proud expression, “As I said before, the most important part of the comeback plan has been successful. I have been recognized by the hidden grand master and become his registered disciple. This is my teacher’s work. It is also the gift I brought for Your Highness this time! I forgot to mention that in our human world, there is only one pharmaceutical grand master. He is the Archbishop Pavaro of Light Divinity Temple. However, Pavaro can only produce at most 2 Eternal Potions, Eternal Mind and Eternal Power. Although my teacher Sun Simiao is unknown, he is a true grand master who has reached the highest level! Pavaro can only be regarded as a trainee before him!”
Although Chen Rui said this, he was secretly praying to the Tang Dynasty medicine king from another world, Immortal Sun. Disciple has now spread your reputation to another world. Please bless Chen Rui. I said to Obsidian back then that one of the most important matters in the ‘plan’ is to get the full support of a reclusive grand master. If I succeed, together with the financial resources of the Kemplot Family, I want to get the approval of my father, Lex the Great. Even further coveting the throne is not impossible.
Due to this, Obsidian deliberately asked Nero, who was also human, about the black potion. Chen Rui was indeed right. Only the Archbishop of Light Divinity Temple in the human world could produce 2 eternal potions. Nero never heard of the so-called reclusive grand master, so Obsidian had always been skeptical of the plan of “Charles” even when Chen Rui brought back 1 billion black crystal coins.
However, if Master Sun Simiao can create a resurrection potion, he is definitely a grand master who is far better than Archbishop Pavaro! Therefore, it should naturally not be a problem for the remaining Eternal Potions, the true black potions.
The thing is, is the potion in this bottle a real resurrection potion?
Obsidian calmed down and said, “Since this is a gift for me, does it mean that I can use it as I wish?”
“Of course.” Chen Rui understood Obsidian’s thoughts and nodded.
Obsidian immediately ordered someone to send a hellhound. With a thought, the hellhound was bleeding to death from its seven orifices. Then, under the effect of the medicine, the hellhound miraculously came alive. Although it seemed weak, the effect of the medicine was undeniable!
A real resurrection potion! Obsidian’s hand which was holding the crystal bottle could not help but to tremble. This should be the first time in the Demon Realm in tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of years! Even the potion grand master, Rosenberg, 9000 years ago can only produce eternal potions!
After verifying that this was a real resurrection potion, Obsidian couldn’t help but feel heartache again. Such a precious potion is wasted on a hellhound. However, as long as there is this human, there will be no worries about the source of the black potion in the future!
Demon Realm currently did not have a real potion grand master, let alone the highest level grand master. Once the black potion was introduced to the world, it would surely be mind blowing. As long as Obsidian could monopolize this unique and precious resource, not only could it bring huge wealth, his political influence would also be unparalleled.
The elder family of the empire and certain militaries or estates that do not obey him would truly submit to him. Then he, as the regent, could become a true emperor. Moreover, as long as the methods were right, even the other 2 empires would look at the Fallen Angel Empire differently. There was no need to be fearful of the Bloody Empire and Dark Shadow Empire anymore.
“Well, Your Highness has finished testing your gift. I should leave now.” Chen Rui said calmly.
“Charles!” Obsidian did not use the title “sir” as well, but his tone was completely different from before. His gaze at Chen Rui was completely different too. Demon Realm had more than 1 empire. Once Charles left in anger to cooperate with other empires, Obsidian believed that he would regret today’s mistake for his whole life.
Even if Raizen the Great and Catherine the Great encounter this situation, they can’t help but be tempted!
“I once said that nothing can affect our cooperation. It used to be the case, it is still the case now, and it will still be the same in the future! I can give you everything you want!”
“All I need is trust and sincerity.” Chen Rui smiled. The fish finally bit the hook. Whether it is black crystal coins, black potions, or personal safety, these costs are finally not in vain.
This will be a big fish this time🎣.
