After coming to Alice and Athena’s side, the little loli said unhappily, “What are you talking about with that nasty woman that you are so happy?”
“Happy? No, I’m threatening her.”
Athena looked at Palando in the distance curiously, “Indeed, she seems very scared…”
When Alice saw the look of the enemy, she couldn’t help but smile. She hurriedly asked, “What is the threat?”
Chen Rui smiled slightly, “I told her not to mess with our little princess, otherwise I will feed her a big mouse, so it scared her.”
“Brother is not telling the truth, but Palando is frightened anyway.” Alice’s eyes brightened as she mischievously smiled, “Actually, you don’t need to waste your ‘big mouse’… Calculating the time, it should be coming soon… Uh, our location is not safe. Let’s stay away and go to Sister Krobelus.”
The little loli’s words made Chen Rui a little confused. He followed her and Athena to the table where Krobelus was at.
At this time, many men had come to invite Palando to dance. Palando finally calmed down. She forced a smile and was about to agree. Suddenly an exaggerated voice sounded, even overshadowing the sound of the music. The sound seemed to be from her hips.
It was hard to imagine that there was such a loud… sound, and it came from such a noble lady. Is she deliberately releasing it…
The men around Palando frowned at the same time. Palando’s face turned red in an instant, then there was another sound. The volume of this sound was lower, but the quality was higher. The men finally couldn’t help but cover their noses. Palando herself almost fainted due to the foul smell. She quickly took out her handkerchief and pinched her nose tightly.
Seeing the peculiar gaze around, Palando’s face flushed, but she couldn’t help it. She made “unrestrained” sounds continuously just like a machine gun.
The men could no longer bear the horrible stench, and they retreated. Palando didn’t expect that she would be so embarrassed under the eyes of everyone. She was so embarrassed and angry that she couldn’t wait to dig a hole and hide inside. She covered her face and ran all the way to the hall, leaving a series of unrestrainable explosive sounds along the way. It made countless people cover their noses.
Chen Rui was dumbfounded at the scene. He suddenly remembered the mutated Lala Potato powder bought by the little loli at the plants trade fair, and he could not help but wipe the cold sweat on his forehead… No doubt, she is still the blackhearted little loli back then.
Putting the mutated Lala Potato powder in the food could make people constantly fart. The little loli probably used it during the dinner, and he didn’t know how she did it… But this time Chen Rui completely supported the little loli ‘s approach. Palando is unruly on the surface, but she is venomous deep down. It is gratifying to see her being embarrassed.
When Sicali saw this, he continued to talk to the surrounding nobles calmly. He was heavy in his heart: I just sent my sister to test the human, and she encountered such an inexplicable trick. This is undoubtedly a warning. It seems like Shea is more difficult to deal with than I expected.
Despite the slight accident that Ms. Palando left the venue after feeling “unwell”, the banquet continued. Almost everyone treated as if nothing had happened, including the guys who smelled bad stench in their noses.
Palando was the younger sister of the lord of White Feather Estate. No one wanted to offend the lord. Moreover, this incident may involve the rivalry between the 2 lords. Therefore, these educated and distinguished nobles acted like nothing happened, but the thoughts in their mind were a different matter.
In fact, these people including Sicali had complicated a simple problem. The truth was just a prank of a blackhearted little loli.
There were already many empty plates stacked in front of Krobelus. With the appearance of Ms. Emerald Dragon, some people came to invite her, but they were either scared off by her gluttony or their belongings were all looted. As a result, no one dared to approach this dangerous area again.
While Chen Rui was chatting with Ms. Emerald Dragon and the others, a guard came and handed him a note. Chen Rui opened the note and read it. It was written with: “Urgent intel, come to the side hall.”
The note was signed by the Dark Demon’s mark. Chen Rui knew that an emergency happened, so he quickly informed Athena as well as the others, and he came to a side hall not far away.
There was only one woman in the side hall with brown curly hair and a black veil covering her face. It was Isabella, the master of Dark Demon and the head of secret intelligence of the Dark Moon.
Today, Ms. Yini was not as tightly wrapped as usual, but she was dressed gorgeously as if she was going to participate in the ball. A blue long skirt with a black silk shawl, showing the deep cleavage between the full peaks. Her noble temperament exuded sexiness and charm which made people have an uncontrollable impulse.
Despite feeling guilty when facing Ms. Yini, Chen Rui knew that the matter was serious, so he forced himself to walk in. Just as he walked in, the door of the side hall closed automatically. This was a normal method to maintain confidentiality, but it made someone nervous for some reason.
In order to resolve this tension, Chen Rui immediately spoke, “Madam Isabella, what is the emergency intel?”
Isabella stretched out her hand and opened her palm. There was an oval object with the size of an egg in her snow-white jade-like palm. Chen Rui was immediately attracted to it. He took a few steps forward and looked at the object carefully. Although there was nothing special about the appearance, Chen Rui keenly felt the “breath” of ancient runes. This “breath” carried a dangerous breath.
The [Analytical Eyes] only identified its material, but this thing was not equipment, so its specific function could not be detected. However, the word “danger” was stated in the column of [Analysis].
“This is called ‘Soul Destroyer’. It can turn everything within 100 meters into ashes. ”
“Soul Destroyer” reminded Chen Rui of Zeray. He only had 1 left in the storage warehouse. He was now considered a great expert in the ancient runes and mechanics. He could judge that the craftsmanship and runes level of this Soul Destroyer were very sophisticated, but due to the material and other reasons, it was much less powerful than “Zeray”. However, it was far from comparable to ordinary magic bombs. Destroying everything within 100 meters was not an exaggeration.
“This kind of object can be detonated at a fixed time by mind control. 10 of them were buried in the palace area. Once they erupt at the same time, even the magic circle of the palace cannot completely reduce this power.”
Chen Rui shocked: Almost all the high-class nobles of the Dark Moon gathered in the palace including the lord and VIPs of the White Feather Estate. If 10 Soul Destroyers erupted at the same time, aside from Krobelus, Shea and Sicali who have extraordinary power, plus Athena, the little loli, and others who have special item protection can be spared, I’m afraid the rest will either die or be injured. Putting aside the impact to the White Feather Estate or the outside world, the vitality of the Dark Moon itself will suffer an unimaginable setback.
Chen Rui asked hurriedly, “Which force did it? This dangerous item should not be able to be placed in the palace. It will be rejected by the magic circle. Not only the magic circle, we also rearranged the traps in the palace, plus the Dark Demon’s secret monitoring and protection… The palace layout is one of the biggest secrets. No one except us should know it.”
“Yes,” Isabella gently held the Soul Destroyer, “Because I was the one who placed the Soul Destroyers.”
Chen Rui was taken aback. He couldn’t believe his ears and thought he had heard her wrongly.
Isabella asked indifferently, and she suddenly threw the “Soul Destroyer” at Chen Rui. When the object was thrown over, the ancient runes, which had been activated, would explode within 10 seconds. He was shocked— This woman is actually serious!
Chen Rui didn’t care about hiding anything. He channeled his territory power in his hand to wrap the “Soul Destroyer”, then he quickly turned his fingers. One after another jumping runes condensed by power appeared. After a great effort, he finally used the power of ancient runes to stabilize the Soul Destroyer and resolved the explosion crisis.
During the whole process, Isabella just watched him calmly and did not intervene, “I asked Zola to make the Soul Destroyer. There are 11 of them. 10 more to go. As long as I activate them with my mind, they will be detonated. You don’t have the time to dispel them like just now.”
“Why?” Chen Rui frowned. Isabella didn’t lie, this thing should be made by Zola and it can be operated with mind. Even if I choose to kill her, I can’t keep up with the speed of her mind. I am unable to resolve this crisis. The lives and deaths of most people in the entire palace completely lies in her hand now.
“Because I’m Devil’s Snare Flower.” Isabella smiled lightly, “Since you dare to use me, you must be prepared to be poisoned to death.”
Chen Rui was startled, “Just for this reason?”
“Yes.” Isabella stepped forward, “At this last moment, dance with me. This is what you promised back then.”
This “back then” referred to the time when Isabella served as the capital envoy to sanction the Dark Moon, Chen Rui and Shea’s dance of waltz shocked the audience. Then Isabella intended to recruit Chen Rui to learn the waltz.
With a wave, Isabella turned on some sort of eavesdrop magic circle. The sound of music from the main hall sounded.
Chen Rui looked at her vigilantly with countless thoughts in his mind. Isabella’s voice was a bit cold and sinister, “10 seconds. Dance or explode, you have only one choice. 10, 9, 8…”
Chen Rui couldn’t bet on this, so he gritted his teeth and made an inviting gesture. Isabella stretched out her hand and held his hand. It was not the first time Chen Rui held Isabella’s hand. In the capital, when he was “Charles”, the 2 had once intimately interlocked their fingers.
But now, when he gently held the weak and soft hand just to dance, there was a subtle feeling in his heart that was completely different from the previous acting. Isabella’s body leaned over, and Chen Rui could smell the faint fragrance in his nose. However, under this kind of coercion, he dared not have any wild imagination in his heart.
The ball in the main hall was happening. Many men and women were dancing in pairs, but they didn’t know that in the side hall next door, a man and a woman were embracing and dancing “intimately”. However, the dance was about the life and death of almost everyone.
At the end of the song, Chen Rui, whose movements seemed stiff, quickly let go. Judging from Isabella’s blue eyes, he could see that she was very dissatisfied.
“Now close your eyes and don’t move!” Isabella’s cold voice sounded.
Chen Rui closed his eyes helplessly. In the [Analytical Eyes], he felt Isabella approaching, and her faint fragrance lingered in his nose. His heartbeat speeded up inexplicably. Her face got closer and her warm breath was clearly audible. It seemed that she had taken off her veil.
Chen Rui instinctively felt something was going to happen, so his body moved slightly, but Isabella shouted, “Don’t move. Just a movement and I will explode them!”
There was a hint of panic in this voice. Chen Rui sighed secretly and did not move any more. Immediately after that, her soft lips were pressed on his lips with a tremor. The moment their lips touched, the 2 of them trembled at the same time. A strange sensation quickly spread to the brain from the contact area. Isabella’s arm hooked around his neck as if she was afraid of him fleeing.
It looked like a standard posture for an intimate couple to kiss. If you include the threat of explosion, it should be called a kiss of death.
This is actually not the first time the two kissed. At the Fallen Angel Capital, “Charles” had a real deep kiss with Ms. Yini. Although it was a means used by Isabella to poison him at that time, from the initial contact, he could feel that this famous social butterfly of the capital was actually a rookie with unfamiliar kissing skills.
What is the reason this time?
Chen Rui opened his eyes secretly and saw Isabella, who had lifted her veil, closing her eyes. It seemed that she was completely immersed in the kiss. He suddenly understood. Perhaps this time, there is no reason…
Some matters do not need a “reason”.
At such a close distance, Chen Rui could clearly see the sparkle at the corners of her eyes under her long eyelashes. He suddenly thought of that day when he was struggling to escape Broc’s territory, the weak back that sacrificed herself to block the fatal blow for him. He recalled her last sentence when she was seriously injured, “I would rather run into you at that time…”
Chen Rui’s heart gradually softened, and his hands gently embraced her waist. When Isabella felt this movement, her arms tightened. Her warm and plump body was completely close to his body. The moist lips and tongues entangled further. Their breathing became more and more heavy.
After a long time, Isabella suddenly pushed Chen Rui away. She turned her back as she panted lightly.
“Shut up. Who are you to call me Isabella?” Isabella’s voice was a little hoarse, “You liar! Liar! Liar!”
“I’m sorry…” Chen Rui sighed secretly. If he still didn’t understand something, he was truly an idiot. No wonder that Roman stuttered like that last night. I am betrayed by this guy after all!
Roman once said that there was a kind of Inheritance Rock in the hands of Isabella. Isabella seemed to be dissatisfied with his strength and had been honing him. Now, Roman said that he was about to advance to the Demon Emperor and even leap a small realm. It should be because of the Inheritance Rock.
The real flaw should be revealed in the last misunderstanding incident. At that time, Isabella started to become suspicious. Chen Rui knew her wisdom and methods very well. Probably Student Nephew was forced to tell the truth by her precise inference and the lure of the Inheritance Rock.
I don’t know how much Roman has explained, but I’m sure that the identity of “Charles” has been exposed.
The truth will come to light sooner or later. If you live a life of crime, you really have to pay back. (To be continued)
This wasn’t the first time he played with the fire and burned himself…
