Mountain Seckred, Blackwood Cliff, a cave.
Chen Rui was speechlessly looking at Ms. Black Dragon who was sitting on the ground while counting the 100 black crystal coins as though she had just received some valuable treasure.
I didn’t expect to encounter such a superb miss dragon in Mountain Seckred today. The robbery is fine, but the superb thing is that number which is really… too little.
It was as if someone kidnapped a billionaire just to blackmail him 100 yuan. This was the most thrifty dragon Chen Rui had encountered.
“It’s really black crystal coins. So many of them! I finally have money!” Ms. Black Dragon shone with tears of excitement. She almost buried her entire face in the small pile of black crystal coins.
“Ms. Olypheus” Chen Rui had learned the name of this lady, “These money…”
“Mine!” Ms. Black Dragon grabbed the small pile of black crystal coins as she looked at him vigilantly. The hostility that was extinguished just now rose again.
“Yes, the money already belongs to miss.” Chen Rui quickly calmed down Olypheus’ heart. “Since I have paid, Fertile Yuan Soil…”
Olypheus shook her head repeatedly. She replied firmly, “No! Fertile Yuan Soil is the most important part of my life. I will never hand it over!”
Chen Rui was initially just testing her, but now he confirmed that Fertile Yuan Soil was in the hands of Ms. Black Dragon. He added, “But Sir Satan asked me…”
“Sir Satan won’t grab my rations!” Olypheus still shook her head, “Besides, if you were really sent by Sir Satan, how could you be attacked by those manticores?”
This Ms. Black Dragon is quite quick-witted. Chen Rui noticed something. Ms. Black Dragon called Fertile Yuan Soil as “rations”?
Olypheus was obviously a miser, but her standard of wealth measurement seemed to be quite low. He could settle her using money, but Chen Rui intended to figure out some matters first, “Ms. Olypheus, pardon my rudeness, but may I ask what do you use Fertile Yuan Soil for?”
“It’s very useful! That’s the most delicious seasoning. 2 pieces of Lala Potato with a little Fertile Yuan Soil in the middle. It’s just like the legendary barbecue!” Olypheus frowned, “The only flaw is that after eating, my stomach will become hard for a while. It will take a long time to recover.”
Chen Rui was shocked again. This Miss Olypheus is simply the legendary raptor!
What is Fertile Yuan Soil? She actually eats it as a sandwich!
This is also the special physique of the black dragon. If it is other demons or demonic beasts, I’m afraid they will become a stiff stone long ago!
Olypheus seemed to have thought of something. She held the 100 black crystal coins tightly with her hands, but she stretched her feet. With a very indecent posture, she picked up a stone with a light pastel color in the corner, and she covered it together with the black crystal coins. She didn’t even care about demeanor or revealing her underwear.
Chen Rui’s eyes immediately focused on the palm-sized stone. He sensed the strong earth element’s breath. Yes, this is Fertile Yuan Soil! It can greatly improve the strength of the Earth Elemental King and the entire earth elementals!
“Ms. Olypheus, why don’t I exchange the ‘legendary’ barbecue for your Fertile Yuan Soil.” Chen Rui rolled his eyes. He took out a few barbecues from the storage warehouse. Before he could say another sentence, a breeze blew past, and the barbecue had fallen into the hands of Ms. Black Dragon. After smelling it, she revealed a longing appearance.
“It turns out that this is the legendary barbecue. It is hundreds of times better than the garbage I made! Just smelling the scent makes me fascinated… Ow…” Olypheus burst into tears, then she gobbled up.
Chen Rui looked at the cave where he and Ms. Black Dragon were located. Although it was clean and spacious, it was the standard poverty with a stone bed, simple tables and stools.
There was nothing on Olypheus’ hands and neck. She didn’t even have a piece of jewelry or space equipment. The “big pile” of black crystal coins and Fertile Yuan Soil were just placed there.
Chen Rui finally understood. This Ms. Black Dragon not only lived in poverty, but she also has never seen anything in the outside world at all!
Olypheus finished the barbecue in the blink of an eye. She stuck out her little tongue to lick the bamboo sticks. That kind of “licking” posture and the infatuation look could easily make many males’ imagination run wild, but soon the desire would disappear because Ms. Black Dragon actually chewed up the bamboo stick!
This action would definitely make the males who had wild imagination just now clamp their legs and shudder. In fact, Ms. Olypheus just wanted to chew it up in order to smell the alluring fragrance.
Although Chen Rui didn’t think anything indecent, he still sweated profusely with Ms. Black Dragon’s action. What exactly does this lady eat usually?
“That, Simon… Is there any more barbecue?”
“Relax, as long as you give me barbecue, I swear by my mother’s name, I will never mess with you, never force you, never…”
Under Olypheus’ ardent eyes, Chen Rui took out a lot of barbecues. Ms. Black Dragon was overjoyed. Her liking for this guy who wanted to rob his rations rose sharply. At least, the previous murderous intent and hostility that she had was gone.
Ms. Black Dragon’s appetite was quite big. She ate all the barbecue stock in Chen Rui’s storage warehouse, only then she rubbed her round belly with satisfaction.
“It’s so comfortable. I never thought… Sobs, I never thought there would be such a wonderful life.” Ms. Olypheus seemed to be moved to tears again. “That… Simon, where do you live on the mountain? I will look for you every day in the future… to discuss life and ideals.”
Chen Rui rolled his eyes: You just want to look for barbecue every day to discuss your life right? You really think I’m a long-term meal ticket?
“Ms. Olypheus, you have eaten enough of the legendary barbecue. Let’s discuss the issue of Fertile Yuan Soil.”
Olypheus immediately guarded the Fertile Yuan Soil which was placed with the black crystal coins in front of her vigilantly, “No! It’s mine!”
Chen Rui knew that Olypheus could not be forced, so he had to take a softer approach, “Since I have let miss eaten so many delicious barbecues, the Fertile Yuan Soil that tastes much worse than the barbecue has lost its value. Miss, didn’t you just swear not to mess with me? You are probably not the kind of despicable person who doesn’t keep her word after getting the benefit, right?”
“Of course not, but I’m not a fool. Although Fertile Yuan Soil is unpalatable, it can grow out after I eat a piece of it. It will last me tens of thousands of years. If you want to take it away, at least you have to give me ten thousand years of barbecue, or help me cook for tens of thousands of years!”
A cook for tens of thousands of years? Chen Rui was speechless again. Olypheus had never seen anything in the outside world, but she calculated meticulously, so he had to use his trump card, “I urgently need Fertile Yuan Soil to help a friend. I can’t stay here forever. Why don’t I convert it into black crystal coins for you?”
When Olypheus heard the words “black crystal coins”, her eyes lit up. When he was about to nod her head, she appeared thoughtful again, “You are very rich?”
You guessed it right. Not just ordinary rich. However, Chen Rui knew the greed of dragons and replied perfunctorily, “Not too bad, my entire net worth is only 20,000 to 30,000 black crystal coins. These days, prices are soaring, there’s inflation, and life is tough…”
The amount of shrinkage of this number to act poor was simply too huge. Any item that he took out casually would be worth more than this. Excluding the odds and ends, just the major portion included Paglio’s treasure, the fundraising money of the Fallen Angel Empire, the crystal dragon’s treasure, and the harvest of the Crystal Valley crystal mine; he could at least be described by the words “filthy rich”.
However, the impact of the number of “20,000 to 30,000” on Olypheus was beyond Chen Rui’s imagination. Ms. Black Dragon’s eyes suddenly lit up. They seemed to become green which made one cringe.
“I’ve decided! I can give Fertile Yuan Soil to you, but…” Hearing this, Chen Rui was ready to be robbed of “all wealth”, but Olypheus’s tone changed, “You must hire me as your bodyguard for. 100 black crystal coins every year. I will protect you… for about 300 years! By the way, the daily meal must be barbecue. There must also be legendary fruit wine, butter bread, meat steak…”
Speaking till the end, Ms. Black Dragon couldn’t help but swallow her saliva. She didn’t look like she was full. Chen Rui was speechless: This chick is too cunning. After beating around the bush, not only did she not give up the idea of the long term meal ticket. She also still wants to scheme “all my wealth”!
If you didn’t swear in the name of your mother when you first ate barbecue, I’m afraid you have already snatched it by force!
But having said that, 100 black crystal coins per year to hire a Demon Overlord black dragon is a super bizarre price. Where can I find such a good thing?
Chen Rui was about to agree, only to hear Ms. Black Dragon adding another sentence, “But well, I promised my mother before that I will not leave Mountain Seckred until I get to the peak stage of the Demon Overlord. Sir Satan will also not make things difficult by then. Now I’m just in the intermediate stage, so you must wait for me to meet this requirement before I can leave here with you!”
Chen Rui was dumbfounded. It will take decades or even hundreds of thousands of years for an intermediate stage of the Demon Overlord to reach the peak stage of the Demon Overlord. How can I afford to wait? He had to take out a handful of black crystal coins, “Ms. Olypheus, shall I just give you the money…”
“No, who do you think I am!” Ms. Olypheus said, but she subconsciously snatched the black crystal coins. “I want the money, and the good food… No wait, I’m a credible person. I actually swore in my mother’s name, and I must never renege…”
Seeing Fertile Yuan Soil close at hand, yet it was gripped tightly by Ms. Black Dragon with the black crystal coins. Chen Rui felt quite helpless, and he immediately asked tentatively, “Your mother?”
Olypheus’ mood suddenly became depressed, “Mom… was buried behind the Blackwood Cliff. She took me to escape from the enemy while I was a baby. She was seriously injured and fled here. Soon…”
Chen Rui understood a little more. No wonder Olypheus is so poor. She could be regarded as the poorest dragon I have ever seen.
It is pitiful that a person lives alone and cannot go out of this small isolated world.
“Well, Miss Olypheus, I do have an urgent matter. I can’t stay here, so I’ll just compromise.” Then Chen Rui took out a space ring. “In this space ring, there are 10,000 black crystal coins. It’s my advance payment for 100 years. There’s also a magic crystal for communication. I will give them to you with this ring. In the future, when you become the peak stage of the Demon Overlord, you can go to the Fallen Angel Capital’s Walong Hotel to contact me. I will hire you as agreed.”
10,000 black crystal coins! Olypheus didn’t hesitate to stuff Fertile Yuan Soil into Chen Rui’s hand. She grabbed the space ring, touched it, looked at it, then she burst into tears, “This is the legendary space ring!”
This is the legendary Fertile Yuan Soil! Chen Rui looked at the heavy stone in his hand, and he almost burst into tears: It’s not easy!
Chen Rui and Olypheus just met briefly. No matter what promises they had, the Dark Moon’s secrets couldn’t be revealed. Walong Hotel was a point of contact for the Dark Demon. If Olypheus really looked for him one day, the Dark Demon would also act appropriately. However, that might be decades or hundreds of years away.
Chen Rui was about to leave here when the [Analytical Eyes] suddenly gave a prompt. There was another person in the cave. It was the mysterious man, Satan.
Facing Satan, Olypheus looked a lot more honest, but she clenched the space ring tightly in her hand and saluted, “Sir Satan.”
Satan nodded and set his eyes on Chen Rui, “In any case, you have passed the test and got Fertile Yuan Soil. Then, you will also get the generous rewards you deserve.”
As he said, a red light shot from his fingertips. Chen Rui only felt that there was a strange and mysterious breath in his body. At the same time, a red badge appeared in his hand with a strange snake-like pattern engraved on it.
Satan said, “If you can digest the power of this territory kingdom, your power should have a leap. As for the badge, you can summon me with it. If you encounter the sea of blood, the abyss or other similar scenes you mentioned again, focus your power on the snake head and crush the badge. However, except for the things that interest me, I will not pay attention to any affairs pertaining to the Demon Realm’s empires or even the rise and fall of an empire. If you dare to use it to simply summon me, then you are only calling for death and destruction.”
Chen Rui subconsciously squeezed the snake-pattern badge in his hand. He asked tentatively, “That underground crystal mine…”
“There is no need to go to the crystal mine anymore. The entrance to the abyss is not fixed. Once it is exposed, it will never be repeated in the same place.”
“Understood! Thank you, Sir Satan!” Chen Rui nodded. There was an uncontrollable exhiliration in his heart. Not only did I successfully obtain Fertile Yuan Soil this time, I also received a trace of power bestowed by a Demi-God powerhouse!
Don’t underestimate this “trace” of power. In the Rainbow Valley, the trace of Demi-God territory power caused him and the fairy dragon Zola to suffer hardships and almost lost their lives.
“Maybe we will have the opportunity to meet again in the future. As long as you are willing to put in the effort, you can get abundant returns.” Satan said calmly. It seemed to have a profound meaning.
Chen Rui felt that the space was distorted, and he was already outside of Mountain Seckred. The voice of Ms. Black Dragon could still be heard in his ears, “I will look for you soon. At that time, remember to prepare the legendary fruit wine, butter bread, steak…”
Satan’s body appeared in the sky above Mountain Seckred. He looked at the human in the distance, “[Body of Light Blessing]… Hehe!”
Suddenly, Chen Rui felt dizzy, and the white sacred mountain in front of him had disappeared. The original emptiness was restored.
Perhap this was the only righteous dragon who honoured her words🧐, just hope she won’t be polluted by the outside world…
