Paglio was taken aback, “Ain’t I doing good? Why do you say I am killed? By the way, Betty, why are you called Krobelus?”
“I only used the name Krobelus in recent years. Didn’t you say that only you can call me Little Betty…” A blush flashed across Krobelus’ face. Thinking of the name Paglio had just called, she felt that the poison in her body became more and more intense. She felt dizzy suddenly, “No! Aren’t you killed by the poison dragon, Paglio and fairy dragon, Zola 2000 years ago? You’re not Ranieri. Who are you…”
“I… Um. Ranieri is just my pseudonym,” Paglio finally remembered something, and he was unusually blushing, “I’ll help you get rid of the poison first.”
“You bastard… I have been fooled by you all this while! What about the treasures you took back then?”
“Ah? What?” (Using fairy dragon’s tactic shamelessly)
“Where is my treasure?”
“Uh, that… Little Betty, let’s detoxify first, then we talk about it…”
“Oh, it turns out that…you are a liar…”
Hearing the dialogue between the 2, Chen Rui finally understood the truth of some so-called grievances. Damn! I even rushed desperately here. At the end of the day, it turns out to be the biggest misunderstanding!
It turns out that everything is a silly fraud that Paglio committed in the past!
More than 2000 years ago, Krobelus was still an innocent girl who just embarked on the path of the dragons’ crime to rob foreign goods. When she earned her first profit in her career… Erm, when she robbed her first batch of treasures, she met a cunning… dead duck dragon.
As a result, the young girl, who just started to have interest in the opposite sex, was attracted by someone’s powerful strength and flauntying wealth. She had a crush on him. Both of them got along well very quickly. They had an illicit and passionate love affair. Ms. Emerald Dragon fell deeper and deeper uncontrollably, and her final defense failed. She had the most intimate relationship with the man who claimed to be “Ranieri”. She even handed the treasure that she robbed to him. When “Ranieri” was excited at that moment, he once vowed that he would rob the most precious treasure as a gift to propose to her. As a result, in the future days, the girl was full of expectations for that so-called gift every day. She even… urgently rushed him.
Soon afterwards, Ranieri suddenly disappeared one day. When the longing girl was searching everywhere, there was news that “Ranieri” was killed by 2 enemies.
This was a bolt out of the blur for the girl who was foolishly waiting for her lover. However, the 2 enemies were both at the peak of Demon Overlords. They were very powerful, and their whereabouts were uncertain.
The girl vowed to avenge her lover. Therefore, she began the human (dragon) life of arduous training and… also earning money.
Chen Rui glanced at the dragon with contempt. This guy actually cheated money and sex. He even reported the enemy’s name as a scapegoat. He is so shameless!
He deserves to suffer from those broken bones!
Paglio exerted a lot of effort, and he finally helped Krobelus to get rid of all the poison. However, the angry Ms. Emerald Dragon immediately exuded a strong aura with murderous eyes as if she was about to dissect this ungrateful male creature.
Paglio knew he was wrong. Moreover, he was weaker than her now, so he could only smile apologetically.
Chen Rui fully understood the mood of Ms. Emerald Dragon. He also supported Ms. Emerald Dragon to chop that nasty man into pieces. However, with the symbiotic contract, he couldn’t let Krobelus really tear the dragon into dragon meat shreds.
However, since this was the case, the initial “husband-killing vengeance” between Krobelus and Paglio no longer existed. If he could resolve the grudge between them, he could also bring Ms. Emerald Dragon to his side.
During the days when we got along in the capital, Krobelus, filtering out some common problems of the dragons, actually values relationships a lot. She actually lived as the wife of the scapegoat blue dragon for more than 2000 years… She even vowed to take revenge. She is a very good candidate to be a friend.
Forget it. For the sake of the symbiotic contract, and also for the sake of “Charles”, I’ll just help the bastard dragon this time!
Just as Ms. Emerald Dragon was about to attack, a voice sounded, “So this is Ms. Betty! What a big misunderstanding!”
Krobelus glanced at Chen Rui without saying anything. Her eyes showed strong hostility. Although she was a little suspicious of his familiar voice, her human friend should have died with Isabella already. She just misheard him just now.
“I’m the best friend of this bastard beside you. No wonder this guy keeps thinking about you. You are a beautiful and moving lady indeed.” Chen Rui was full of praise.
“Keeps thinking?” Ms. Emerald Dragon snorted coldly. Her murderous intent was targeted at Paglio again, “For 2000 years, I once kept thinking about this liar too, but what I’m thinking now is how to remove his bones one by one! ”
“Ms. Betty, before you remove his bones, please listen to my story.” Chen Rui glanced at the dragon, who was unusually begging for help. “Have you not discovered that there is a problem with his power?” If he was of the strength 2000 years ago, would he be beaten so badly by you?”
Krobelus was stunned. He is right, if it were 2000 years ago, even if I have broken through to Demon Overlord, this guy only needs to wave his hand to make me completely lose my resistance. Could it be something that has happened?
Chen Rui sighed heavily. He finally told a “story” against his conscience after some preparation.
2000 years ago, a man who was about to face a terrifying enemy, resolutely left without saying goodbye and embarked on a journey of battle in order not to involve his beloved woman. As a result, he was sealed by that terrifying enemy for 2000 years. He had only recently regained consciousness, and his power was limited to the Demon Emperor realm. Unfortunately, he was unable to find his lover’s whereabouts all this while.
This story was described very vividly. Especially some plots that were almost exactly out of a textbook. Even the poison dragon had goosebumps after listening to him. Meanwhile, Krobelus was really moved. Thinking of the poison dragon’s strength and the lack of news in these years, her murderous aura became weaker and weaker. Finally a little tear appeared in her eyes, “Ranieri… No, Paglio, why don’t you tell me the truth? We can face any enemy together!”
Paglio shook his head, “It’s useless for you to go. That enemy is too powerful. He should be Demi-God. He easily sealed me and caused me to sleep in the Blue Lake of the Dark Moon for 2000 years.”
This was a rare truth. Chen Rui saw that Krobelus was moved, and he suddenly pointed to Paglio’s nose, “It’s this man! Once, when he was dying, he was still calling the name Betty. He begged me to find that lady who he has always been thinking about and must hand over the most precious treasure to her as a belated proposal gift!”
“Me? Proposal?” Paglio pointed to his own nose. His eyes widened.
“The most precious treasure?” Krobelus blushed as she thought of the promise made by a certain bastard back then. Her eyes exuded strong eagerness.
“Don’t be embarrassed!” Chen Rui patted Paglio’s shoulder generously. He said while hinting, “Ms. Betty has been waiting for you for 2000 years. What else can you say?!”
Paglio was stunned for a while, and he saw Chen Rui then took out a fist-sized gem. This gem was entirely crystal clear, and it had a mysterious structure which was like the eyes of a certain creature. No matter which side you looked at, it seemed to be watching you. Besides, the pupils would also automatically zoom, and it emitted shining starlight which would give people a peace of mind feeling.
“The Stardust Eye!” Paglio blurted out. This thing was the secret treasure of the Leviathan Royal Family 20,000 years ago. It was also one of the most beloved collections of the poison dragon. Last time, when he divided the treasures with Chen Rui, he also deliberately divided this gem.
“This is the Stardust Eye!” Ms. Emerald Dragon naturally heard of this treasure before. Her eyes were almost flashing stars, “Paglio, I have fully felt your sincerity, I… I’m willing to accept your proposal!”
“I’m not willing!” The poison dragon was so reluctant that he blurted out immediately in a state of desperation.
Krobelus was stunned, thinking that she had heard it wrong. For a while, her murderous aura began to permeate. Chen Rui secretly had the urge to tie up this dragon and give it to Zola to experiment. Did “Ranieri” leave Betty back then just because he was stingy?
“Of course he’s not willing!” Chen Rui said rushingly, “Because it doesn’t represent all his sincerity! He wants to give not just this gift to Ms. Betty, but also another one called the Snow Crown!”
The Snow Crown? It is another very famous treasure!
These 2 gifts are too precious!
The sharpness that had just risen in Krobelus’s eyes instantly turned into waves of tenderness. She took the initiative to hold Paglio’s hand, and she felt the hand tremble slightly as if he was emotional for her agreeing to marry him.
As everyone knew, this was because a certain dragon’s heart was dripping blood. Another favorite treasure!
Seeing the threatening gaze of the human, Paglio understood that if he disagreed, perhaps all his treasures would be “sold” to Krobelus!
When I put my treasures in this guy’s “talent space”, I thought that no one would steal it anymore. It was considered foolproof, but I didn’t expect this day would come!
If a dragon lost all his treasures and became a pauper with nothing, then it was better to commit suicide and break up.
(By the way, it seems that this girl is very suitable for my taste. I cheated all of her treasures back then, yet she is still willing?)
(Besides, I didn’t want to really dump this girl when I left, but because I was urged by the forced marriage. Also, I have to deal with the crystal dragon and the blue dragon… Then, I was really sealed…)
(However, this girl is barely regarded as 1 of my infinite concubine plans. I will also bring a group of female dragons to show off at this damn human’s house. How can I commit to 1 person so quickly?)
(Anyway, I must try to cheat those 2 favorite treasures back! A good dragon does not fight when the odds are against him. I better pretend to agree… Maybe, in the past 2000 years, Little Betty has saved a lot of wealth? )
After the dragon’s eyes kept rolling round and round, he squeezed Ms. Emerald Dragon’s hand firmly. Chen Rui finally breathed a sigh of relief. Judging from this, perhaps Earth Elemental King will come in vain.
C’mon just let Paglio break a few more bones. He deserved it…
