Chen Rui bid farewell to Obsidian, followed Isabella into the carriage, and came to the residence of the capital’s flower.
Compared with the estrangement last time, Isabella seemed to be a lot more enthusiastic. She held his arm as they walked all the way in. It was the same kind of public intimacy. There was no senseless brat like Lordan who dared to harass him. All major families of the capital, including the elder families, had included “Charles” on the list of those who must not be provoked.
“You haven’t eaten lunch yet.” Isabella took him to a seat. “I have asked the maid to prepare your favorite grape wine and a small steak. Take a rest and eat later.”
“Miss Isabella.” Chen Rui seemed overwhelmed by the treatment, “I… I’m not dreaming, right? You didn’t even want to see me last time…”
“Last time you said that we are going to start again…” Isabella answered. She suddenly let go of her arm and gave him a bitter look, “Can Sir Charles give me this opportunity?”
Chen Rui looked at Isabella’s somewhat thinner face. She imagined the scene of facing Shea last time, and he sighed softly, “You have lost weight.”
This sentence contained a touch of affection and pity. Isabella’s eyes trembled. She looked down as if to conceal. She touched her face, “Is it ugly?”
“That term has never been suitable for you. Although I cannot deny that I still have my wife in my heart, in any case, you are always the most beautiful and most charming fresh flower. Am I a very unfaithful man?”
“You’re a liar.” Isabella bit her lip and said, “You have a wife, but you still steal other women’s heart out here. But you are also a fool, mentioning another woman in front of a woman who wants to be courteous. Don’t you know that women are jealous?”
Being jealous… Is it the story of a master from the Demon Realm? Fang Xuanling. Lucifer? Chen Rui’s thoughts wandered away, but he helplessly sneered.
“However, there is this kind of foolish woman who knows that this man has another woman, and she knows that they are from 2 worlds… but she can’t restrain herself.” Isabella’s eyes flushed suddenly as her hands clenched tightly on her skirt. Her body trembled slightly as if she was trying to suppress her emotions.
If there is a Demon Realm’s Oscars Award… this woman is definitely a favorite to win the first prize. This kind of acting can almost reach the point of being real. Chen Rui secretly praised her. He was very cooperative as he “emotionally” held her hand, “Miss Isabella…”
“Don’t move.” Isabella said, breaking free of his hand, but she gently leaned her forehead on his shoulder… Closing her eyes, a drop of tear fell on the sofa and fell on Chen Rui’s arm.
After a long time, her slightly red and swollen eyes slowly opened.
“Charles, I’m tired.”
“I’m such an ambitious woman.”
“But, after all, I’m just a woman.”
There were only 3 intermittent sentences. It seemed out of the blue.
Chen Rui felt a strange feeling in his heart. He could hardly tell whether this woman’s feeling was real or she was acting.
Perhaps an excellent actor… has to be really focused in acting. In any case, acting is just acting… It is not real.
“Call me Yini…” Isabella raised her head lightly as if she had made up a certain determination. Her face lightly raised as it slowly moved toward him. Her reddish blue eyes were a little blurry.
If it was Athena, Kia or Shea, Chen Rui would take the initiative to kiss without hesitation, but this was Isabella… As the faint flower fragrance was getting closer and closer, Chen Rui couldn’t help but to feel a little rippling in his heart. Her lavender lips had touched his mouth.
Forget it, I’ll just make a full set of play.
Anyway, I still have 3 days… It’s not my first kiss anyway, I won’t suffer any loss…
The moment their lips met, Isabella, who took the initiative, seemed to tremble a little. Then she kissed heavily on his lips.
It started with a light kiss, then their tongues intertwined. Chen Rui was a little surprised to find that Isabella’s kissing skills were actually much more unskilled than he imagined… It seems that she has very little experience. That’s not right. Isn’t she a well-known social flower?
The breathing of the hugging two people gradually became heavier. Chen Rui felt the two large balls squeezed on his chest, and he gradually lost control of the certain body part. He shamelessly had a normal man reaction. This is not good! We are playing normal script, not a X-rated script
You really don’t want to? Isabella’s beauty is comparable to Shea, especially her unique style of maturity and seduction Which was very charming. Now that she offers herself…
Although Chen Rui despised his own hypocrisy as if he was the poignant Liu Xiahui , he still decided to interrupt this passionate scene. It was undeniable that men tend to rely on the lower body part to think, but it was not all the time, or not all men.
At this moment, the prompt of the discovery of poison from the Super System suddenly made Chen Rui’s mind awake. His lingering thoughts suddenly disappeared.
In terms of the amount of continuous aura conversion, this poison is quite venomous!
It turns out her purpose is…
She actually uses this method to poison me?
What a Devil’s Snare! Sure enough, it poisons while enchanting someone. As Chen Rui’s thought moved, the transformation of poison was temporarily suspended. He suddenly felt a strong weakness with a series of paralysis. He couldn’t gather his strength. He actually couldn’t move.
Isabella slowly loosened her “affectionate” hands around his neck. Chen Rui’s body suddenly lost support and fell uncontrollably on the sofa. From the very beginning when Isabella held Chen Rui’s arm into the hall, all the maids had retreated. There was no one nearby.
When Chen Rui fell, he had quickly activated the [Automatic Aura Absorption] to automatically absorb the poison. His weakness quickly faded away, but he still pretended to be poisoned on the floor so that he could launch the most fatal blow at the right time.
“Why do you do this?” Chen Rui “couldn’t move”, but he could still speak. His expression was naturally in disbelief.
Isabella didn’t have the triumphant expression. Instead, her blue eyes showed a faint indifference, “Because I want your life.”
“Why?” Chen Rui really couldn’t understand her motives for killing him at this time. Even if it was the force behind, she should first attempt to recruit “Charles” rather than killing him.
Isabella gave him a deep look, “Because you are a liar.”
Chen Rui’s heart was shocked. This is not a joking or flirting tone. Could it be that she really noticed any flaws? No, even Obsidian didn’t notice it… There were no abnormalities in the palace just now. I even took the huge sum of money.
Isabella shook her head again and sighed, “It would be great if you are just a simple liar, but unfortunately… you are not just a liar. It is really unfortunate…”
A liar and not a liar? Chen Rui was confused as he listened, so he had to ask, “I don’t understand what you are talking about. If you really want me to die, dying in the hands of a woman I like is a luxury. But… can you let me know the cause of my death?”
“Your acting skills are quite good. Even if I know you are acting, I still follow you into the play step by step. I was really close to being moved by you. Unfortunately, many years ago, I had already been cheated once. Now, I can’t always fall down in the same place, right?” Isabella smiled slightly… The smile seemed as cool as water. There seemed to be a hint of chill in the indifference.
“This is my fourth time trying to kill you. The first 3… all failed.” Isabella was quite confident in the poison, so she frankly confessed the previous events.
“The first time was in Trevante. I wanted you to die in the hands of the evil eye. Unfortunately, you are too lucky. Not only did you not die, but you also saved my rogue nephew. Anyway, I was the capital’s envoy at that time, so just one sentence is enough to make you, a human spy, more guilty of charge. Besides… you also killed my coachman, Jardel… I can blame this matter on my enemy, Rommel.”
Chen Rui was slightly surprised, “We… only then met for the first time.”
She has this killing intent at the first encounter?
Isabella said indifferently, “Because you are a human man and I’m not a good character, but a poisonous flower. Do I need more reasonable reasons?”
Chen Rui sneered secretly. She is indeed a vicious woman. Even when she faced the powerless “Chen Rui” in the Dark Moon… she also used a killing move like “evil voodoo”.
“Don’t try to delay time to resolve the poison. This poison is secretly made by me at a great price. The more you resist, the more aggressive it is. You can’t get rid of it. It’s like the Devil’s Snare Flower. Gradually, you will lose all your power. Your soul will also be annihilated…” Isabella seemed to see through his “intention” and went on saying, “The second time, I used Lordan to ambush you. Originally, I didn’t want to kill you again since you rescued my nephew, but you have to court your own death. You want to make use of my relationship to achieve a certain goal. You can only say that you were digging your own grave. But to my surprise, you killed all 4 of them even though your strength clearly did not reach the Demon Overlord. Oh, Lordan should be trying to say something, but he was exploded by the the secret medicine that I combined with evil voodoo.
Chen Rui had a sudden realization. No wonder Lordan was full of confidence when he pointed out that my strength has not reached the Demon Emperor. It turns out that Isabella “inadvertently” revealed it. Lordan’s death after that is also Isabella’s method.
“The third time, it was when you were taken away by Doren. Because at that time, I had already determined that you were a liar. A real liar!” Isabella sighed, “Your wealth game for collecting money is simply unheard of, especially when it works in an unfamiliar place like the human world. Although my intuition tells me that there may be a problem, I can’t find any loopholes.”
Chen Rui finally showed his surprise. His plan referred to an ancient scam on the earth, the “Ponzi scheme”. Even in the modern age, many illegal MLM groups used this principle to amass money. It was invented by an Italian American, Charles Ponzi, This was also why he faked his name as “Charles”.
In short, a Ponzi scheme was to use the money of new investors to pay interest and short-term returns to old investors in order to create the illusion of making money and defraud more investment. If his objective was purely making money, he could use the Ponzi scheme to slowly swindle wealth step by step, but his ultimate goal was political, so he added the variable of black potions.
Chen Rui could be sure that it was the first time such a huge scam had appeared in the Demon Realm. As it was the first time, so cunning people such as Obsidian and Josh had been fooled. Unexpectedly, Isabella noticed the problem of it!
“Your courage is extraordinary. Your whole plan is clever and careful. The high profit is even more tempting. Especially in the early stage when Josh and his son also succeeded in getting a large return. It is very convincing. However, there is one thing you may have neglected, or perhaps this overthinking woman used a mindful eye, and then she discovered the flaw.”
Isabella stood up and took a few steps, “You should know that my job is financial assistant. In fact, as rumored, I have actual control over the finances of the empire. The 1 billion black crystal coins investment that the Regent gave you back then was released from the vault through me. You may not think that I will use a lot of manpower to make a unique mark on each black crystal coin. When you come to the capital again, you even brought back 1.2 billion with profit. I also carefully monitored the money. Although the money has been processed by methods similar to Holy Magic, the mark still exists. Then, the 1.2 billion you gave is simply the original 1 billion capital, plus an additional 200 million. I shouldn’t have to explain more at this point… This is actually the most stupid method, but it has expose your smartest game. ”
Chen Rui didn’t expect to be seen through in this way. He secretly sighed at his carelessness. This is not a stand-alone game. Apart from me as the “protagonist”, everyone else is just NPCs who provide dialogue. I am not the only smart person in this world. There are also many more smarter people than me.
He did not make a pointless defense. He asked, “Then, why didn’t you report to Prince Obsidian? Expose me as a liar?”
“Anyway, you are about to die, so I will tell you the truth. I’m not from the Fallen Angel Empire. The so-called regent king confidante is just a chess piece placed by a force called ‘Bloodfall’ beside Obsidian.” Isabella showed a faint sneer, “What does the survival or the crisis of the Fallen Angel Empire have anything to do with me?”
Bloodfall? It’s the first time Chen Rui had heard of the name of this force. It was also his biggest potential enemy of the Demon Realm. The battle in the Crystal Valley had undoubtedly severely damaged the layout of this force. The “Bloodfall” was quite large. There were spies placed in the Dark Shadow Empire and the Fallen Angel Empire. Their wild ambitions could be imagined. I don’t know if the Bloody Empire has spies? If not, does it mean that the Bloodfall is the work of the first powerhouse emperor of the Bloody Empire? Is he using this method to slowly erode the opponents as they are unable to start a war at the moment of the “Era of Peace”, then he will launch an all out invasion to defeat the 2 empires and unify the Demon Realm?
Or perhaps they are the secret alliances of the fallen royal families such as Beelzebub and Leviathan, wanting to make a comeback and subvert the 3 empires in one fell swoop?
In any case, judging from the ambitions of “Bloodfall”, there would definitely be another “intersection” with this mysterious force in the future. However, now was not the time.
 A man in Chinese history who remained unmoved by beauty seduction.
Isabella was once cheated by a human? How did he turned a beautiful flower into a poisonous flower?
