Just when the quarrelsome but loving couple, Master Poison Dragon and Ms. Emerald Dragon, finally “reunited”, the Dark Moon had completely defeated the Red Spirit Army and pursued them all the way to Town Dico. They captured and imprisoned countless soldiers, not to mention seizing various weapons and so on.
The defeated Red Spirit Army fled and discarded their helmets and armor. They suffered heavy losses. Finally, under the leadership of Kanita, they gathered the remnant formation, crossed Town Dico, and fled into the Red Spirit territory at full speed.
40,000 armies actually defeated nearly 100,000 enemies. Furthermore, they were fighting head-on!
The Dark Moon won such a big victory for the first time in hundreds of years. The morale of each soldier was boosted. Every soldier’s face was filled with excitement and pride. Although the Dark Moon Army also suffered a lot of casualties, the entire army had been qualitatively sublimated after this fierce battle. A truly strong army began to form.
After leaving a part of the army to defend Town Dico, Shea led the army back to the Dark Moon. Someone had spread the news of the Dark Moon’s victory against the Red Spirit. The people of the Dark Moon who had been worried about being looted, humiliated or even massacred after the defeat were all excited, so they all cheered. They took the initiative to organize a long line of people outside the city to welcome Princess Royal and the army’s victorious return.
“Red Blood Flame, triumph in every battle!”
“Long live Princess Royal!”
Hearing the neat slogans of the army and the cheers of the people, Shea acted very calmly. After giving a morale-boosting public speech, she began to orderly arrange post-war affairs.
The Red Spirit Estate’s defeat this time was mostly due to Josh’s underestimation of the enemy. Besides, if we don’t consider the man’s unexpected help, I’m afraid it is the Red Spirit Army standing here to celebrate.
We need to be vigilant because defeating the Red Spirit is only the first step. There is also the equally powerful Blue Lava Army later. The power of our light cavalry team and wyvern legion has been exposed, and nearly a thousand people of the light cavalry have been injured or dead. The wyverns also have a dozen casualties. With the cautiousness of the Blue Lava Lord Titan, he will definitely be on guard, so we must not be carried away by victory.
I must calm down and pay close attention to the movements of the Southern Blue Lava Army. Be ready for the second fierce battle at any time.
Back in the palace, Shea removed her broken armor, simply treated her wound, and changed into a long white dress. After experiencing the excitement of the victory, she felt an unprecedented exhaustion.
It’s time. Where is Alice now? Why is Athena or Kia not here? He must have arrangements.
He went to deal with Krobelus… I don’t know how he is doing.
There are too many mysteries to be solved… You must come back alive, no matter what your identity is!
Unconsciously, Shea had already walked to the pool deep in the inner courtyard. It had always been her forbidden area, so there was no maid nearby.
Involuntarily, the scene of the first encounter with her old enemy here appeared in her mind. She still felt extremely angry that her biggest secret was discovered. Unknowingly, hatred rose in her heart.
However, some unrelated scenes emerged in front of her at the same time. For example, the dual dance under the moonlight; every time when she saw that person, she couldn’t help being angry, but she really wanted to see him.
Also, his statement that made the entire Dark Moon army high-spirited on the battlefield.
“Shea, you are such a foolish woman. A foolish woman. Yes, it is these 3 words.” Shea only felt that her mood was unprecedentedly more complicated and contradictory than ever. She lowered her head gently, sighed, and walked toward the pool under her feet.
I’ll wait for him here. No matter what his purpose is, no matter what is the end result for both of us, I’ll just wait for him like this.
Shea walked into the pool. After a strange space distortion, she came to the secret room under the pool.
This used to be the secret place where the God-Eating Mask fragment was sealed. Only the lord knew about it.
The biggest secret in her heart was here. It recorded her true pleasure, anger, sorrow, and joy that she did not show in front of anyone including Alice. Only in this small and secret room could she truly have the freedom to laugh or cry.
As soon as Shea entered the secret room, her pupils suddenly shrank because there was already a person in the room.
With his back against her, he gently moved the memory wind chime.
Within the tinkling sound, familiar sounds came from time to time. It was hers.
There were relaxing humming sounds, crying, laughing, and low longing whispers.
As the greatest privacy in the bottom of her heart was seen through, Shea couldn’t restrain her anger.
He turned his head slowly. It is really this face. Not only this face, but also the familiar feeling from my heart, which is definitely not what ordinary transformation techniques can disguise.
Although she had a thousand words to ask and say, she uttered a cold sentence with killing intent even in this most authentic secret room.
“Where’s… your mask?”
“Here.” A strange mask appeared on his familiar face, and Shea’s heart suddenly tightened.
This kind of breath…Yes! It is the highest artifact, God-Eating Mask, of the Beelzebub Royal Family! It’s even completed!
In an instant, Shea’s killing intent had turned into an extremely strong murderous breath. Many hypotheses were confirmed in an instant.
No! I should call him Aguile. Beelzebub!
The so-called “symbiotic contract” is just a lie that covers the disappearance of the 2 persons at the same time!
In the blink of an eye, the God-Eating Mask disappeared again, and his familiar face was restored.
Shea’s eyes were sharp like a knife, “Why don’t you keep wearing it?”
This made Chen Rui sigh indifferently, “If you wear a mask for a long time, you will easily forget that that is not who you really are. Maybe one day, when you decide to take off the mask, you will realize that your face is already the same as the mask. Do you understand?”
It was an answer with a hidden meaning again.
Shea subconsciously touched her face, and then she coldly said, “I don’t understand! I don’t understand what you actually want?”
“So, tell me. What do you want?” Chen Rui walked over step by step.
What I want…
Shea’s gaze seemed slightly distracted, but she immediately recovered. Her murderous breath had reached its peak.
“I want you to die!” Although she said so, and her murderous aura was still sharp, she was retreating step by step. However, the space in this secret room was too small. She had been forced to the corner after 2 steps.
Chen Rui looked at the Princess Royal Highness who was glaring at him furiously. He recalled her determination and ruthlessness when she used Kia to force him to leave. It was just for that last order, “I order you in the name of Shea. Lucifer, you must live.”
He closed his eyes, gently recalling his feelings and his teardrop that could not be controlled at that time. He blurted out a sentence.
“A foolish woman!”
The familiar 3 words caused Shea’s body to tremble slightly. She finally suppressed her thumping heartbeat, gritted her teeth, and she said, “This vow has been fulfilled on the battlefield. At that time, I didn’t kill you. Now, it’s either you die or I…”
“Then, let’s change a word.” The man’s eyes showed undisguised sincerity and affection, “My foolish woman.
Shea’s movements became stiff, and a long-depressed emotion in her heart finally surged uncontrollably. Then, she felt a strong male breath approaching quickly. Although she kept telling herself to dodge, make a move, and kill this “enemy,” she couldn’t control her body, and she was gently hugged.
When the trembling red lips of Princess Royal Highness were captured by the man, her mind was blank. Her entire person was spinning around as if she was flying in endless flowers and green fields.
(What do I want?)
(Lord? Power? Throne?)
(Those are just “ideals” imposed on this Princess Royal identity. I have no choice.)
(Actually, all I want is a shoulder that can bear my tears when I’m frustrated and allows me to take a bite when I’m happy.)
(All I want is a warm light… not a cold throne, a cold mirror, and a cold wind chime.)
(Just like that… only.)
Suddenly she thought of a saying- If someone is willing to be by your side, even without any words, it is a kind of happiness. Even if you lose everything, just stop and look around. There will be someone in your sight. Then, please don’t be sad or be in despair. Don’t forget that you are by no means alone in any case.
The two pairs of warm lips slowly separated, and she slowly opened her watery purple eyes. A pair of black eyes was imprinted in her eyes as well as in her heart.
Yes, I am by no means alone.
Perhaps true loneliness was not inborn, but it started from the moment she fell in love with someone instead.
At least for now, she was no longer alone.
“I’m not a Beelzebub, I’m just Chen Rui. Chen Rui’s Chen, Chen Rui’s Rui.” The man smiled slightly, “Your Chen Rui.”
Despite the evident proof of the God-Eating Mask and his power of Demon Emperor level, she did not know why she believed him, plus she believed him with ease.
She was the lord of the Dark Moon, and she had many things on her shoulders. According to a certain plan, she was likely to ascend the throne in the future. Even if he was not from the Beelzebub Royal Family, both of them would definitely encounter many difficulties that they couldn’t help themselves.
She didn’t know what the future would be like.
She knew that she couldn’t suppress the emotion in her heart now.
Even though she had been sensibly warning herself to abandon her feelings to be a truly cold and calm lord, she still couldn’t suppress it.
It was even as strong as a volcanic eruption.
“You’re not just mine. You have Athena, Kia, and maybe more women.” Shea suddenly raised her head, and she stared at him without evading, “You can choose to love me or not, but I can only choose to love you or love you more.”
There was no gentle tenderness or timid shyness. There was only this bold confession that made Chen Rui’s heart tremble violently.
The vague and warm affection in the past became very clear in an instant. That feeling was like when he heard Athena’s final confession during the life and death situation when facing Glorfin in the underground world of Mountain Xilang.
Those words seemed to resound in his ears again. I order you in the name of Shea. Lucifer, you must live.
Chen Rui suddenly hugged her tightly, and he kissed her passionately as if to crush her lips.
At this moment, the 2 heard the voice of each other’s mind. Never ever separate.
Finally, the iceberg melted…
