By the lake, in a small tent.
The unguarded Princess Royal Highness was already naked. The white jade-like skin and perfect body shape almost dazzled a wolf’s eyes.
In fact, it was not the first time Chen Rui had seen the naked Princess Royal Highness. When he came to the palace for the God-Eating Mask fragments, he had “accidentally” peeped at Shea bathing. However, the far view and the closer view were totally different… By the way, he was not just looking closely…
As an experienced and patient wolf, Chen Rui naturally wanted to leave a perfect memory for her first time. He didn’t rush it, but he slowly used kisses and touches to dissolve the Princess Royal Highness’ defense and tension.
Gradually, the Princess Royal Highness’ eyes became blurred, and her heated body twisted slightly. She stroked the man’s hair and back from time to time.
As the critical moment was about to come, a soft ringing sound suddenly came from the pile of clothes on the side. This was a signal device made by Chen Rui after the Dark Demon accident. This kind of signal device could send and receive signals within the effective range to notify some emergencies. It was distributed to Isabella, Athena and the others.
This signal was obviously sent by Isabella, but Ms. Secret Intelligence seemed to use it as a summoning device. Yesterday, she used this method to “summon” him to go to her yard to drink tea. So misused, don’t you know that the story of “The Boy Who Cried Wolf“?
It’s okay if it’s a normal day, the problem is now… I really can’t get away.
We can drink tea next time. For now, let’s “eat” Princess Royal Highness first…
Shea had not recovered from the hazy state yet, but she faintly heard a sound. She asked vaguely, “What’s wrong…”
“It’s nothing.” Chen Rui replied, and he kissed her lips again. As he secretly flicked in the air, the signal device suddenly stopped ringing.
“Beep beep beep…”
It was another crucial moment to blend in, and the unpleasant ringing sounded again. This time, it was from Shea’s bracelet.
“Wait!” Shea woke up suddenly. The bracelet glowed with a turbulent purple light which was actually the most urgent signal.
Today was her birthday, and it was night time, yet this kind of emergency signal was still sent out. In addition to Chen Rui’s previous call, something serious must have happened!
“I think we should go.” Shea gently pushed Chen Rui away and sat up. She felt a little sore and soft, and her thigh was actually wet. As she recalled the scene, there was another uncontrollable hotness on her face: What’s the matter with me today. I am actually so impulsive that I almost gave myself to this guy.
Chen Rui looked depressed as he watched Shea hurriedly dressed up. The damn signal didn’t come earlier or later, but it just popped out at the most terrible moment. Did Madam Yini guess that I took Princess Royal Highness out for a date during her birthday, so when she was unsuccessful in summoning me, she deliberately used this method to alert the enemy?
Seeing someone’s bitter expression, Shea’s eyes flashed a trace of smile, and she took the initiative to kiss his face.
“Can you kiss me again?” Chen Rui pointed to the other face.
Princess Royal Highness had already put on her clothes. Her complexion became serious when she saw the signal flashing continuously on her wrist, “Let’s go quickly!”
Seeing that cold and solemn mask returned to Shea’s face, Chen Rui knew that there was no hope.
Once I lose this opportunity, is there another one?
Based on his understanding of the Princess Royal Highness, it was usually impossible to let her let her guards down like today. Is it that… I need to wait until her next birthday?
When the two hurried back to the palace, Isabella had been waiting in the council hall for a long time. Ms. Yini knew that today was Princess Royal Highness’s birthday. Seeing the two appearing at the same time, she didn’t show any special gaze, but she reported an urgent intel with a serious face.
This was really a very urgent intel.
——Regent Obsidian. Lucifer of the Fallen Angel Capital publicly announced this afternoon to propose to the Dark Moon’s Lord Shea!
The news was so shocking that Shea and Chen Rui almost couldn’t react for a while.
“Damn!” Chen Rui’s temper suddenly fired. The damn Regent Obsidian actually proposed to his nephew’s daughter openly!
Does he know what shame is? He even wants to grab my woman!
It is simply intolerable!
Isabella glanced at Chen Rui, who was full of murderous intent, and she said lightly, “Although Obsidian is two generations higher than Princess Shea, this kind of thing is not uncommon among the upper-class nobles, and some even take it as a pleasure. It’s just that most of them are kept secret. As the controller of an empire, openly proposing to a grandniece is quite rare in the history of the Demon Realm. But Obsidian’s excuse is quite high-sounding- the Sword of Fallen Angel. As long as Princess Shea married him, she can own the Sword of Fallen Angel as a queen. As the Lucifer Royal Family of the Midnight Sun, Princess Shea has a high probability of being recognized by the Sword of Fallen Angel. Even if she does not get it, the prince or princess whom she gives birth to in the future can definitely become the true successor of the Sword of Fallen Angel. More importantly, Obsidian can use this to get rid of the title of regent without any dispute and ascend to the emperor throne justifiably.”
Also, give birth to the prince and princess? Chen Rui had the urge to go to the capital to castrate Obsidian first and then kill him, but with the capital’s defense and Obsidian’s own peak stage of the Demon Overlord strength, let alone him, even Paglio would not be successful. This idea was obviously just a fantasy.
“If this strategy succeeds, there will be several major benefits. Firstly, he can use the Dark Moon’s huge wealth to resolve the predicament of arrears in the fundraising. Secondly, he can eliminate the threat of the Dark Moon’s rise without bloodshed as well as annex all the resources and strengths of the Dark Moon. Thirdly, he can use this method to further integrate the Fallen Angel Empire and formally ascend the emperor position, thereby eliminating the dissatisfaction leads by General George. I have to say that this is a good move given Obsidian’s current situation.” Isabella calmly analyzed the concerns. Shea listened carefully, and the anger in her purple pupils gradually faded, revealing a thoughtful expression.
Isabella’s tone changed suddenly, “The Dark Moon is originally the big estate under the capital. It is a great honor for the Royal Highness Regent to propose to a female lord. Moreover, as a royal family member, Princess Royal Highness should put the overall situation of the empire first and accept the regent’s proposal. If she can be recognized by the Sword of Fallen Angel, then the Fallen Angel Empire will become more united and powerful.”
Chen Rui didn’t expect Isabella to actually agree to the marriage proposal. He was about to speak in a hurry, but Shea nodded calmly, “You are right, Isabella. Thank you for your comprehensive analysis. I already understand it.”
Isabella’s gaze had a trace of admiration. She bowed slightly to Shea and did not speak any more.
The calmness shown by the two women gradually made Chen Rui calm down. He was discomposed when it was about a person he cared about. Just now, he was hot-headed and almost lost his temper just now. As a counselor, this kind of behavior was obviously unqualified.
At present, anger was useless, the key was countermeasures.
Shea considered for a moment and said, “Obsidian’s method is really beyond our expectations. If we don’t agree, we can only use rejection or avoidance methods. In order to avoid, unless I’m married or have an engagement. Moreover, the engagement must be formed with forces that make Obsidian fearful, such as the Dark Shadow Empire or the Bloody Empire, but in this way, I may lose the support of General George and the others. As Sarandi said, it is equivalent to betraying the Dark Moon. If I reject…”
“If you reject, the capital can justifiably launch a justified war against the Dark Moon.” Chen Rui intercepted, “It seems that Obsidian is going all out this time. He wants to kill the Dark Moon during the early stage of rising at all costs. “
Shea paced back and forth while pondering. After a while, she finally made a decision, “This matter is quite urgent. We must immediately discuss it with the 3 legion commanders and the 3 patriarchs of Saiful Family, Terry Family, and Viva Family. Tim at the Mountain Xilang cannot come in time. He can use the remote magic communication to participate in the conference. I urgently need information. This includes the overall military intel of the capital and the estate that may join force with them; the details of all the available forces of the Dark Moon; the detailed storage of various materials of the Dark Moon. You two work together to sort it out in the shortest time.”
Chen Rui and Isabella glanced at each other. They knew that it was a critical juncture and this matter should not be delayed, so they retreated and left the council hall together.
Walking out of the palace, Isabella suddenly turned around, and her blue eyes rolled, “Today… is our Princess Royal Highness happy?”
Chen Rui knew that he couldn’t hide it from her, and he smiled bitterly, “At least she was happy before hearing some bad news.”
“Really?” Isabella deliberately showed a look of surprise, then she asked, “So, are you happy now?”
The good matter of being in perfect harmony with each other is stopped at a critical moment, what is there to be happy about?
“As if you don’t know!” Chen Rui said irritatedly, “If a robber said he would take you to be his wife, would I be happy?”
Seeing him making such an example, Isabella faintly smiled like a flower behind the hazy veil, and her eyes were very charming, “Of course you will be happy because there is no annoying woman who threatens you… Besides, how can a commoner like me compare to the natural beauty of the Princess Royal Highness?”
“Men are insatiable. For me, a normal man, whether it is a commoner or natural beauty, as long as she is hooked up, I must have her. Even if it’s the ‘annoying’ woman who threatens me.” Chen Rui deliberately emphasized the word “annoying”. After experiencing the Nero incident, Isabella seemed to have reverted to the charming Devil’s Snare Flower of the capital as before. Her whole person was an enhanced version of a little demon.
However, this flirty style was only shown in front of him.
“As expected, men are creatures who will never be content.” Isabella blinked her alluring eyes and said quietly, “I initially wanted to listen to “The End of the World” dozens of times tonight, but it doesn’t seem possible now. It’s probably hard to have leisure time during this period. But I will accumulate it and listen to my heart’s content at one go.”
Then, wouldn’t it be hundreds and thousands of times?
So many times, can I replace with sex instead? Chen Rui said cruelly in his heart, but he didn’t dare to say it. He just grinned and said, “Since we are so close, how about giving me a way to survive? Don’t knock me to death at one go, slow and steady is the right way.”
“That depends on my mood…” Ms. Yini winked seductively, and someone suddenly felt unable to resist and he surrendered.
After a few jokes, Chen Rui felt that his depressed mood was relieved a lot, and his tense nerves gradually relaxed. He knew that Isabella did it on purpose. Ms. Secret Intelligence was actually a very understanding woman.
With the current tense situation, anxiety and anger would only lead to more mistakes. He must maintain clear-headed.
Chen Rui also urgently needed the report on the military and material resources because from Shea’s attitude and orders just now, she had made a decision.
Then the Dark Moon was about to really face an unprecedented test.
Chen Rui needed to carefully calculate all the forces he could use in his hand. According to the original plan, with the development speed of the Dark Moon, it was only a matter of time before the all out war with the capital. He had also considered how to overthrow Obsidian’s control over the capital and the entire empire step by step, and finally defeat the opponent completely in an all out war in 10 years. That was the reason for the gambling agreement with Sarandi.
However, after all, natural changes would overrule human’s estimation. This day came faster than expected, and much faster!
On the second day of her birthday, Princess Royal Shea was dressed up and attended the Red Blood Flame Army battle ball celebrity game in the arena. Facing the crowded audience, Shea announced the good news before the game kicked off.
Shea would take the Red Blood Legion deputy legion commander, imperial guards deputy commander, and the Cloak Gang leader, Aguile, as her husband.
This good news shocked the audience. The mysterious hero, Aguile, who defeated the Red Spirit Estate will become the husband of Princess Royal Highness!
Keep note that it was not the princess who married him, but it was matrilocal marriage! This meant that this was a marriage centering around Shea, and Aguile would just be a dependency at all times, even if Princess Royal became an empress in the future.
The people couldn’t help but think of the rumors that “Aguile is from the Beelzebub Royal Family” that was popular some time ago. In this way, even if Aguile was really a descendant of the Beelzebub Royal Family or even the rumored heir, then joining the Dark Moon now represented the surrender of the Beelzebub Royal Family to Princess Royal Highness. He was surrendering to Princess Royal for the Dark Moon, not the regent of the capital.
This was a heavyweight to enhance the reputation of Shea and even the Dark Moon as a whole.
Afterwards, Shea gave an exciting speech to inform the Dark Moon Army present about the current ideal situation of the Dark Moon and the grand blueprint for its future development. In conjunction with the “good news”, she announced that a series of favorable policies would be implemented soon. These policies were quite beneficial. If everything went smoothly, the people of the Dark Moon would be richer, and the families would benefit more. The audiences were all cheering.
Countless people’s eyes turned to the “lucky guy” who was still wearing a mask and a cloak. No matter what, it is an enviable matter to have a wife like Royal Highness, the top beauty of the Dark Moon.
However, according to etiquette, if Princess Shea doesn’t like him, it seems that the husband can’t even get in the bed…
I think he can’t flirt around too…
It seems a bit miserable…
This announced decision also surprised Chen Rui because Shea did not discuss with him in advance. This “matrilocal marriage” contained the selfish motives of Princess Royal Highness. Instead of calling it selfishness, it should be considered a “public” confession of their relationship.
Looking at the indifferent princess under the eyes of the public, Chen Rui’s mind had the gentle and beautiful face that was under her mask.
——At least I had a moment with her with her mask off, I am already satisfied…
His right hand gently stroked the “Dark Will” ring on the ring finger of his left hand.
I will guard by her side forever then.
Just like the original promise.
I really thought Shea would consider marrying Regent Obsidian. If she didn’t meet the human, she would do so for the sake of the empire. But now…
