Chen Rui held Isabella in his arms. As the blood in her chest had frozen into ice, the chill made one shaking involuntarily.
“Broc… Is he dead?” Broc’s angry blow contained some of the power of the peak of the Demon Overlord. Isabella was now on the verge of dying. Her voice was quite weak, but she still had not forgotten the life and death of her enemy.
“With Obsidian’s appearance, he will definitely not be able to escape.”
Isabella’s eyes showed relief, “I’m sorry. I’m afraid… I can only repay you once.”
Chen Rui knew what she meant. She wanted to kill him 4 times. It was offset once just now, but he could feel that it was by no means simply “repaying”.
“You aren’t calling me Yini anymore?” Isabella barely smiled, “However, this Isabella, is the most genuine that I have heard from you.”
Chen Rui’s heart trembled. Sure enough, emotions are something you can’t play with. The more you invest, the more you can feel true and false. That means…
Chen Rui kept telling himself that this was just a fake romance script. A false and vicious woman who acted in an opponent’s play, but his heart still ached for some reasons.
“Charles, what are you… planning to do?”
“Charles” broke off his cooperation with Bloodfall, and fled through fake death. It almost completely severed his foothold in the Demon Realm. Isabella wondered what he would do.
“I’m a liar, a simple liar. That’s all.” Chen Rui gently tidied the hair with blood on her forehead. “Didn’t you say that if I was just a liar, maybe our ending would be different?”
“It’s already… different.” Isabella looked at him quietly without asking anymore. Chen Rui fed her a bottle of healing potion, but it didn’t help. He could even clearly feel her vitality was lost quickly.
“Promise me one thing. If you have a chance to see my nephew in the future… Tell him the Breeze Shadow Boots… was lost 200 years ago…”
Breeze Shadow Boots!
Chen Rui was taken aback. He faintly guessed that it was related to the man who Isabella met 200 years ago. He deliberately asked, “Breeze Shadow Boots? Is it one of the 7 artifacts of Demon Realm?”
Isabella’s gaze that was nearly disintegrated began to dim, “That year, the innocent girl met a sweet-spoken human man. She was loyal to him and fully trusted him. She did not hesitate to fight against her family and form a grudge with her sister. Even the most precious artifact was given to him…”
It turns out that the Breeze Shadow Boots fell into the hands of that human! Belphegor’s highest artifact… Damn. It’s actually in the human world now?
That is to say, Roman has to go to the human world to retrieve the Breeze Shadow Boots?
“Sabrina likes to fight with me since I was a child. This is even the same for fighting for men, but we are all wrong,” Isabella grinned sorrowfully, “This man has only the artifact in his eyes. I even took the initiative to dedicate myself to him, but he expressed considerable restraint. After he got the artifact and abandoned me mercilessly, I learned that he actually hates women very much and likes men!”
Isabella laughed more and more miserably. She even laughed with tears oozing blood. Even Broc’s frozen power could not freeze the tears, “It’s ridiculous! I, a foolish woman willing to give up everything, fell in love with such a cold-blooded liar. Even… my dedication to him was dismissed!”
Chen Rui listened quietly. The only thing he could do was to carefully wipe away her tears.
Although Chen Rui only heard part of the story, he could fully imagine the roughness and bitterness that this once pure and innocent Snow Dallet endured in these 200 years before she became the poisonous Devil’s Snare. Therefore, she hated men and affections. She even hated everything. There was only hatred and revenge in her life.
However, from her unskilled kiss, he could see that the toxic fragrance of Devil’s Snare still vaguely retained the fragrance of the Snow Dallet.
“You’re also a liar… Charles is perhaps not your real name…” Isabella’s life gradually disappeared with a sorrowful laugh, “But, I would rather run into you at that time. At least… at least…”
Isabella’s voice became weaker and weaker as the shaking of her body gradually stopped.
Chen Rui took a deep breath and finally made a decision.
There was a clear glass bottle filled with black potion in his hand.
Fallen Angel capital, the palace.
Obsidian looked at the few people who were kneeling down with a gloomy face. One of them was his favorite and trusted concubine. It was this concubine who betrayed him and revealed the most confidential secret that he accidentally revealed after being drunk that day.
This famous force is so bold! Their power of influence is so deep-rooted in my land! Even the most trusted woman around me is from this organization!
Although, according to the concubine’s explanation, the “top” person should be trying to win over “Charles” this time, no matter what, the deaths of “Charles” and Isabella were directly directed by Bloodfall.
This was not the most critical issue.
The most terrible thing was that all that large sum of money was given to “Charles”. At that time, Obsidian saw with his own eyes that “Charles” used space magic to keep the money in a certain private space. Now that this partner was dead, this money was equivalent to being vanished in the space turbulence. There was no way to get it back! This was huge funds raised from Obsidian and the major lords as well as major families. The Red Spirit Lord Josh alone had paid a billion!
Not only the huge sum of money and the black potion are gone now, even Charles is gone. It can be said that there is no proof! By then, what can I return to these families and these estates?
At the thought of this, Obsidian’s heart bled.
Even if the truth of Bloodfall is revealed, and even the concubine is used as a testimony, no one will believe it. No one wants to believe it. Those guys only want money!
Speaking of it, I blame myself for vowing a guarantee, but at that time, who knew that such a thing would happen?
Right now, the Demon Realm’s potioneer competition is about to start. First try to raise fundraising money and hold it successfully. As for the estate money, I can only try to delay it for a while before trying to find a way!
The concubine took a few steps forward, hugged Obsidian’s legs and kissed his boots. She cried, “Your Highness, please forgive me! I was forced to do so; I will never dare to do it anymore; I will be more dedicated to serving Your Highness…”
Before she finished speaking, her beautiful face suddenly burned. In the sound of screaming, her whole body was burned to ashes for a moment. A cold light appeared in the eyes of Obsidian who killed his beloved woman personally. He gritted his teeth and uttered a word, “Bloodfall!”
Dark Moon City.
The residents never knew that the man who walked out of the Dark Moon caused a shocking impact in the capital. They were currently discussing a small incident only.
Nowadays, the most discussed topic in the Dark Moon was a battle ball game.
This game was completely different from the previous ones. It did not refer to the intensity or excitement. It was a gambling game that could affect the entire Dark Moon situation.
At the recent regular meeting, Financial Officer Joseph, who was pushed to the edge of the cliff step by step by the Princess Royal Shea, finally made the revolt publicly. He lodged a solemn protest against the sir lord’s series of sanctions and suppression. However, Joseph was not trusted in the Red Spirit Estate now, so he couldn’t use the Red Spirit policy as his trump card as he used to. Moreover, the current Dark Moon was no longer the Dark Moon 1 or 2 years ago.
After the protest was invalid, Joseph finally resorted to the last move. It was to use the chamber of commerce he established, all the industries under his name, and the position of Finance Minister to publicly bet with Princess Royal. Joseph’s bet could be said as all in. He requested the Princess Royal to issue bets including joint chamber of commerce, night market, Princess Retail Store, auction house, arena and so on. It was almost all the economic forces controlled by Shea.
Shea refused without hesitation. She said that sloppy methods such as gambling should not be used to determine such a major event. From the current perspective, even if she didn’t take this risk, she could slowly crush Joseph.
Joseph was very cunning. In the name of the royal family, he used the method of goading her into action. He also used many methods that he had been preparing for a long time. Shea was a little unable to reject, so she changed an excuse. She said that Joseph’s bet was too small to be in line with the assets she currently had. It was indeed true.
If this was 1 or 2 years ago, this ratio was almost impossible. The situation was the other way around now. Whether it was authority or strength, Shea had the absolute upper hand.
At this moment, a sudden change occurred. “Aguile”, who had been standing on Shea’s side and was also named as the imperial guards reserve forces leader, suddenly turned his back and announced that the Cloak Gang would fully support Joseph’s side.
Everyone was in an uproar. It turns out that “Aguile” is actually a chess piece Joseph arranged next to Shea!
As a result, Joseph had the arena, night market, and Cloak Gang properties in his hands. Plus the financial officer position, he was barely equal to Shea’s side. Shea was extremely angry at “Aguile’s” sudden change at a critical moment. With the support of a group of families, she agreed immediately. Many of these families were fence-sitters. They were very good at spotting opportunities. No matter who wins or loses, they support them anyway. The two sides used the battle ball as a gambling method. A highly anticipated competition was scheduled to be held at the arena at the end of the month as a testimony to all the audience. Whoever won would truly control Dark Moon’s economy.
With Shea’s prestige in the Dark Moon, coupled with the imperial guards and garrison guard, which were obviously higher than the strength of the private team, people were naturally optimistic about the Princess Royal. As for Joseph’s team, at best, it was just a relatively strong team that he had secretly trained. It couldn’t be compared with the imperial guards and garrison guards that represented the Dark Moon and also the highest level of the Demon Realm’s battle ball.
One should know that the rule of the battle ball had strict restrictions on both sides of the competition. It was impossible for Higher Demon to play against Lesser Demon. Thus, Joseph and the Princess Royal agreed that the two sides playing were the Intermediate Demon team.
Shea should have the winning ticket. The Dark Moon military and civilians thought so, and most families thought so, but only Joseph didn’t think so. He had seen the Intermediate Demon fighting team under “Aguile”. The physical strength should surpass all Dark Moon’s teams. He made so much commotion in the beginning, including pushing himself to the edge of the cliff, just for this bet.
“Aguile” did not disappoint me. He stepped up in time and successfully precipitated the gambling game. With the careful planning of this ally, I, Joseph, am the real winner who will laugh till the end!
However, Joseph didn’t know that even “Aguile” himself thought that Shea would win. This was simply a trap. Now that Joseph had jumped down and was burying himself in the soil step by step. All that was left was just the last shovel.
From the beginning of cooperation with “Aguile. Beelzebub”, this gloomy and cunning Dark Moon’s financial officer, the eldest son of the Red Spirit Lord, was destined to end tragically.
Doesn’t Josh understand that there is no sure win in a bet?
