After about a day and a half, the 2 finally arrived at Mountain Xilang. After experiencing the night ambush , Alice did not add to the chaos. There seemed to be a little more tacit understanding between the 2.
After Alice learned some little secrets that “only the closest and trustworthy people could know”, such as some “special abilities” that Chen Rui possessed through the “grand master inheritance”, she seemed quite excited.
In fact, Alice would know these “secrets” sooner or later because of her cleverness and the gradual increase in experience. Chen Rui took advantage of the situation to ask her to keep secret about the “stories” and other aspects. The little loli naturally nodded.
Nowadays, Mountain Xilang had undergone considerable changes. The original defense forces of the West Road had been expanded to the Dark Moon’s third legion, Moon Shadow Legion. With the efforts of Legion Leader Tim, the scale and strength had faintly caught up with the other 2 legions, Red Blood and Flame Light.
The Moon Shadow Legion successfully built a large-scale military fortress in Mountain Walan. They also opened up and built a new town named Town Walan. Although there were not many residents, this town was the must pass road of the businessmen from the Dark Shadow Empire to Dark Moon City. Coupled with the “magic dust” land improvement and the construction of “direct roads”, the population growth and the town’s development speed were quite gratifying.
In terms of individual strength, Tim, who was average in training qualifications, advanced to the Demon King level under the effect of the black potions and devil fruit. He was considered to have the basic qualifications of a legion leader.
The fastest improvement was Tim’s wife, Lysa, who had reached the intermediate stage of the Great Demon King. The overall strength of the Medusa tribe had also risen to a new level with the help of the devil fruits. They were also equipped with the most sophisticated weapons and armor. Chen Rui was naturally not stingy toward his own subordinates. The medusa tribe had become the strongest bow army in the Dark Moon. It was enough to become the demon of the magician legion on the battlefield.
“This is medusa?” The little loli, who followed Chen Rui into the fortress secretly, looked at several medusa elites led by Lysa in surprise. She hid behind Chen Rui with some timidity, but her eyes flashed with curiosity.
“Princess Alice, don’t worry. This is my wife, Lysa, the matriarch of the medusa tribe.” Tim was the heir of the Dark Moon’s Saiful Family. He was naturally an old acquaintance of the little loli.
“Little princess Royal Highness.” Lysa saluted Alice. Her Demon Realm language had a snake-like “hiss” sound, but it was still understandable. Under the current training, the medusas had basically mastered the language to communicate with normal demons. The real reason for Lysa’s salute to Alice was not only because of Alice’s princess status, but more importantly, she was brought by the “master”, and their relationship seemed to be very close.
“Hello.” Alice stepped out with Chen Rui’s encouragement. She saluted back. After some talking, she became more courageous. Lysa knew that Chen Rui and Tim had something to discuss, so she found an excuse to bring the little loli out of the room.
Tim immediately began to report to Chen Rui, “Master, the molochs, geodragons and wildbeests that were secretly purchased from the Dark Shadow Empire have already begun training. The cavalry brigade has begun to take shape. In terms of ordnance, all the weapons and armors are in place. We are preparing to transport them to the Warlock Fortress. Also, Tieke is a real ordnance genius. He is now the Chief Ordnance Technician of the Moon Shadow Legion. He has modified the handheld crossbow to launch 6 consecutive times. The magic crossbow carriage is also developed successfully. It can fire poisonous explosive crossbows. Although its lethality is inferior to that of the Magic Crystal Cannon, its mobility, firing frequency and production difficulty are far superior to that of the Magic Crystal Cannon. It is now in mass production…”
Chen Rui didn’t expect that minotaur Tieke, whom he rescued nonchalantly, could reach such an altitude. He nodded approvingly, “The weapons and armors are not urgent. After the magic crossbow carriages and even crossbows are manufactured, we’ll transport them to the Warlock Fortress together. However, this batch of ordnance is of great importance. You need to pass by the Red Spirit Estate, the capital and the White Feather Estate along the way. You must pay attention to safety and make no mistakes.”
“I understand, master.” Tim asked again, “Excuse me for overstepping the rules. Master’s purpose of coming to Mountain Xilang this time, is it to go to the Earth Realm of the Earth Elementals?”
“Yes, the most important purpose of my trip this time is to meet the Earth Elemental King.”
Tim smiled slightly, “Master, I happen to have something to report to you. I was instructed by the Earth Elemental King to use the Fountain of Vitality of the earth elemental’s Earth Realm as the base point to send magicians to secretly build a water element teleportation portal under the Walan Fortress that can reach the Earth Palace with the fastest speed. If there is any emergency in the future, we can directly seek asylum from the earth elemental.”
“Teleportation portal?” Chen Rui showed a knowing look. At the beginning, he asked the Earth Elemental King to take care of Tim and the medusa tribe. It seemed that the Earth Elemental King attached great importance to this. He even opened the Earth Realm to outsiders. This way, he didn’t have to enter from the underground of Xilang Mine to go to the Earth Palace. He could also reach the Earth Realm directly from Walan Fortress without hurrying for a few days.
“Very well. Get Alice here, I will take her to the Earth Palace now.”
“You are going with the little princess?” Tim was a little surprised, but he didn’t ask much. The person who can go to the Earth Palace with the master must be quite close to him. Previously it was Athena, then Kia, and now the little princess Alice.
It seems that the relationship between master and the Dark Moon’s little princess Royal Highness is by no means simple. Master is really amazing. He can even win over such an eccentric little princess Royal Highness…
If Tim knew that the “master” actually won over the elder sister of the “little princess Royal Highness”, who was the boss of the Dark Moon, Iceberg Princess Royal Shea, he would be extremely in awe.
In fact, Alice had heard Athena selectively talked about adventures in the underground world long ago. This included medusas, taurens and earth elementals.
Alice had seen the taurens in the Blue Lake Mountain Range. This time she specifically asked Chen Rui to take her to see medusas and earth elementals again. Considering the behavior of the little loli after the night ambush and Shea deliberately instructed him to make her sister happy when they left, Chen Rui finally agreed to her request.
In general, the little loli was not a loose mouth. When he pretended to be unconscious previously, she kept the secret very well.
“Sister Lysa, let me tell you, Tim used to have a dozen girlfriends.” Chen Rui heard Alice’s voice. “I remember there was an arrogant Sona. I mixed some spicy powder into her lipstick. As a result, hehe…”
“Good job, little princess Royal Highness” Lysa rolled her eyes at Tim. “Don’t you agree? A lover of a dozen women… Sir Tim?”
Since Tim’s interesting past was revealed by Alice, he could only smile apologetically. Chen Rui shrugged: It seems that this blackhearted little loli only has a tighter mouth at certain times…
After the interlude, Tim led Chen Rui and Alice to a basement. There was a large-scale pool and a mirror-like empty door. When Tim used the magic stone to activate the teleportation, the empty door suddenly became wave-like blue which appeared to be rippling. Chen Rui took Alice’s hand and walked in. There was a cool feeling. Their figures twisted for a while, and they disappeared.
After the feeling of teleportation disappeared, the two figures appeared in a scene shining with various lights. It was the Earth Realm of the earth elementals. In front of it was a fountain. The teleportation portal was two-way. An earth elemental was designated to guard on this side. When he saw Chen Rui, he saluted him respectfully. At the same time, a guard went to King’s Chamber to report to King Moore.
The little loli held Chen Rui’s hand. She looked in amazement at this strange underground world as well as those strong elementals whose facial features were very vague, and their body seemed to be made of rocks.
“Chen Rui, my friend, we meet again.” A figure emerged from the ground in front of him. It was the Earth Elemental King Moore, and Alice was taken aback.
“Moore, my friend.” Chen Rui bowed slightly, “This is Alice, the little princess of the Dark Moon Estate, my…”
“Fiancee.” The little loli suddenly intervened boldly. She generously saluted Moore under Chen Rui’s stunned gaze, “Alice. Lucifer, my pleasure to meet Your Highness.”
When did you become my fiancée? This little loli is too good at taking advantage of it! In front of the Earth Elemental King, she actually…
Moore’s voice sounded, “Princess Alice, since you are Chen Rui’s fiancée, then you are the closest friend of the earth elementals. On behalf of all earth elementals, I would like to extend my highest respect and warmest welcome to you.”
Alice saw Chen Rui had an unsightly expression, and she quickly said, “Thank you for the hospitality of Your Highness. I think you two should have something important to talk about. Then, please allow me to visit this amazing Earth Realm.”
The little loli really has abundant experiences. She speaks politely and shows the royal family’s demeanor. At least, this superficial disguise is very successful, but her identity of the “fiancee”…
“Of course” Moore nodded, “Tag, take Princess Alice around for a walk.”
Tag was an earth elemental elite. He had mastered the Demon Realm language now, so he immediately led Alice away.
Moore smiled slightly, “A beautiful girl who is very understanding, isn’t she? My friend.”
Chen Rui replied vaguely, and he rolled his eyes secretly: Perhaps understanding is one of the hidden attributes of the little loli, but just now… she was definitely blackhearted!
A stone with a lightly colored light appeared in Chen Rui’s hand, “I’m here today to give you the most important gift, Moore.”
“Fertile Yuan Soil!” When Chen Rui took out the stone, Moore’s eyes glowed with ecstasy, “You actually found it!”
“Now it’s yours, my friend.”
Moore took Fertile Yuan Soil with both hands, then he raised it high. His rock-steady hand actually trembled with excitement. In the hands of the Earth Elemental King, the Fertile Yuan Soil suddenly emitted a dazzling strong light. The entire Earth Realm was covered with a layer of color. All the earth elementals’ bodies had a faint fluorescent light.
In Chen Rui’s [Analytical Eyes], the data of the Earth Elemental King began to change. His Comprehensive Strength Assessment changed from S to S+. The rest of the earth elementals’ strength breath was also changing.
No doubt, Fertile Yuan Soil had its maximum value for the earth elementals. If it fell into the hands of those like Ms. Black Dragon, it would only be a jewel in the dust.
Chen Rui was taken aback and said with joy, “Great! You reached the peak stage of the Demon Overlord so soon!”
“Your vision is really admirable. In fact, I am just restoring my lost power. I can further improve and stabilize.” There was an uncontrollable joy in Moore’s voice, “3 months! In just 3 months time, I will fully unleash the power of Fertile Yuan Soil, and my strength will be completely stabilized. The entire earth elemental group will undergo a real qualitative change. There will also be Demon Emperor-level earth elementals in the future.”
Chen Rui nodded and suddenly thought of something, “Moore, I have a small request, can you give me some Fertile Yuan Soil. It is one of the necessary materials for an important weapon.”
Fertile Yuan Soil was an indispensable material for the artifact “Secret Shadow”. Previously, Chen Rui didn’t dare to do as he wished like Ms. Black Dragon because he was afraid it would affect Moore’s recovery. He just brought it up in front of Moore now.
“My friend, your frankness and sincerity touched me. This is originally the treasure you brought.” Moore exclaimed with emotion and extracted a portion of little light on his hand, “This is part of the original Fertile Yuan Soil. It has been activated by my soil element’s power. It can revive wilting plants as well as double the growth rate and yield of crops. As long as you leave half of it, it can slowly regenerate every time. Take this little gift as a return for the precious gift you gave me.”
Chen Rui’s eyes lit up, and he quickly took it over. He felt that the breath of the soil in his hand was completely different from its previous origin. He was secretly surprised. It could bring plants back to life and continue to regenerate. It was indeed a desirable treasure. The feature of doubling the yield should be able to be used in the Galaxy Garden to double the aura flower and aura fruit inside. After retrieving the earth elemental heart, the Galaxy Garden once again welcomed the “tailor-made” treasure.
Obviously, only the Earth Elemental King could activate and separate the origin of Fertile Yuan Soil. If Chen Rui swallowed Fertile Yuan Soil in the first place, he would not get this special effect of the origin.
“Besides, there is another gift for your fiancée.” Moore looked at the little loli who was coming here. A black and white crystal appeared in his hand. It seemed to contain powerful energy.
“This is the power transferred to me after Glorfin exploded himself back then. It should have been left on him by a formidable enemy. This power is the light and dark power of the Lucifer Royal Family. The power of the caster was the most powerful peak stage of the Demon Overlord I have ever seen. He has even faintly approached the Demon Supremo level. This power of light and darkness has always limited my strength. Even after his death, it still existed stubbornly. Finally, I got rid of it with the power of Fertile Yuan Soil and refined it into crystals. If the power of this crystal is completely absorbed, the [Heart of Light and Dark] of the Lucifer Royal Family can be mutated. Even her entire strength can be directly elevated. Even those who have no such talent of awakening can still awaken their talent because of it, but unfortunately, it can only be used once.”
As Moore said so, he handed the crystal to the surprised Alice. Just now, he had deliberately made Alice hear him clearly, “Please accept this gift, Chen Rui’s fiancee, the earth elemental’s forever friend.”
Alice was stunned as if she thought of something. She accepted the light and dark crystal like it was a rare treasure. She even forgot to thank him. She showed a pleasant surprise, “I finally found the best gift for my sister!”
Chen Rui was stunned. The Demon Realm advocated power most. Even the lowly demons would not miss any opportunity to improve themselves. Moreover, this light and dark crystal that should originate from the Lord of Midnight Sun contained majestic power. It could make a Lucifer Royal Family member like the little loli to directly advance. It was unexpected that the little loli first thought of her sister and not herself.
Seeing Alice’s heartfelt excitement without any pretentiousness, Chen Rui didn’t even explain the “fiancee” matter to the Earth Elemental King. He patted her head lightly. He smiled and said, “Indeed, it’s the best gift.”
Maybe with this power, Shea could wield the Sword of Fallen Angel that was sealed, but she had to get it from Obsidian first…
