In the dimness, Chen Rui’s eyes finally opened.
What he saw was a tidy room. The most attractive thing was the lovely woman sitting by the bed. She had light blue skin, golden eyes, sexy body, and her face was covered with a veil, revealing a mysterious charm.
“Master, you have woken up.”
Chen Rui rubbed his sleepy eyes, “Gensha, where is the captive?”
“In the cellar, Baina and Bailin are watching him.”
“How long did I sleep?”
“Master, you have slept for 2 whole days.”
Chen Rui stretched out comfortably. He sat up and found that he was naked. All his clothes that were damaged during the battle had been taken off, and he quickly got back into the quilt.
“Master, do you need Gensha to serve you?” Gensha smiled charmingly behind her veil while she asked very naturally. In the lamp spirits consciousness, it was natural to use the body to serve the master.
A certain absurd scene in the illusion appeared in Chen Rui’s mind, and a part of his body had a natural reaction abruptly. He hurriedly shook his head and said, “No need.”
He didn’t come to Town Massimo alone this time. He also brought the lamp spirits and the Dark Demon people with him. After receiving the signal, the lamp spirits quickly found Chen Rui who was sleeping. They moved him and his captive to a temporary residence in the new town.
Chen Rui got dressed and just ate something when he saw the Dark Demon boss, Bennett, hurriedly walking in.
“Sir is awake? I happen to have something that requires sir’s decision. Since yesterday, many strangers have appeared in the town to ask about the explosion of the barren mountains 2 days ago. According to investigations, the leader was an unfamiliar man with a woman who seems to be Lord Sicali’s younger sister, Palando, in disguise. We are probably being targeted by the other party right after we arrived in this town. Should we move now?”
The so-called barren mountains explosion was actually the destruction of the underground base by Satan. Sicali’s peak stage of the Demon Emperor clone once said that once the Wheel of Hera was destroyed, although the real body and clone would not die, they would be severely injured at the same time. Therefore, the 2 clones of Sicali must have known the destruction of the Wheel of Hera, and they guessed that the base had undergone a huge change. Then, the strange man who brought Palando to Town Massimo was probably the clone who liked to play SM.
Chen Rui pondered for a moment, and he already had a decision in his mind. He instructed a few matters to Bennett.
Soon after, a group of people appeared in the hall of the house.
Chen Rui sat on the chair, looking very weak, with unrecovered scars faintly visible on his face and hands. Next to him were several tall women in cloaks.
“Sir lord, please sit down.”
The strange man was indeed Sicali’s clone of the early stage of the Demon Emperor. He was inquiring about relevant news, but he didn’t expect to meet a contact person sent by Bennett and came here all the way.
“Sir Fako!” Sicali’s face returned to his original appearance, and his face was a little pale. “I’m looking for you.”
“I’m ashamed as I only completed half of your commission.” Chen Rui’s voice seemed weak, “That Wheel of Hull actually exploded by itself.”
Sicali shook slightly, but his eyes lit up, Completed half?
“How about that person?”
“He is in my hands, but…” Chen Rui smiled bitterly and pointed to the scar on his face, “As you can see, the difficulty this time is much greater than I thought. It will take at least half a year of recuperation to recover.”
Hearing that he had succeeded, Sicali’s heart that had been tense was finally relaxed, and ecstasy flashed across his eyes, “Where is he?”
“Don’t worry, sir lord.” Chen Rui shook his head, “Should we first talk about some matters related to cooperation?”
“No problem. Although Sir Fako didn’t complete the task perfectly, the big problem is considered resolved.” Sicali took a deep breath to suppress his excited emotion, but that kind of great relief fluctuations could not hide from Chen Rui’s spirit power.
Initially, this clone, who was about to be swallowed by the real body, met Chen Rui in a desperate situation. He was completely holding a gambling attitude, but he didn’t expect that the situation would be reversed miraculously. How could he not be ecstatic?
Chen Rui was about to speak when the woman standing behind Sicali said, “Wait a minute! Let’s not talk about the task that is only half-completed. At least you have to prove that he has been caught. Otherwise, what qualifications do you have to negotiate?”
Chen Rui frowned, and Sicali quickly explained, “This is my sister, Palando. She is young and ignorant. Pardon her if she has offended you, sir.”
“It turns out to be Ms. Palando. What the lady said makes sense, then…” Chen Rui made a gesture at the lamp spirits on the side. The lamp spirits understood and walked down. Soon, Sicali appeared in the hall. His appearance was miserable, and his hands and feet were locked by the magic shackles. He was unconscious.
Sicali’s clone was excited again. There was a special soul connection between him and his real body. He could conclude that the unconscious person in front of him was the “real” Sicali!
Palando was also a little emotional with an odd expression flashing in his purple eyes.
“Sir lord, it is this person, right?” Chen Rui smiled and said, “I don’t care what identity this person is and what special transformation ability he has. I only know that my collaborator is you, sir lord. This is enough to represent my sincerity, right?”
Sicali’s clone knew that the other party must have noticed some insider story. Although the Wheel of Hera’s destruction was a pity, as long as he swallowed the soul power of the real body, it would be equivalent to getting rid of the fate of a clone and becoming the real Sicali. At that time, he could use the power of “Fako” to destroy another clone once and for all.
“Please forgive me. To be on the safe side, I think it’s better to check it out.” Palando stepped forward. The lamp spirits got a signal from Chen Rui, so they did not stop her. Palando carefully observed in front of the real body, touched it with her hand, even pulled out his hair, lit it with fire and sniffed it, and she finally nodded after a long time.
Sicali’s clone didn’t think anything wrong about this, but he knew that he could not act too impatiently. Palando’s pretense was actually a reminder which served as a buffer. He calmed down and said, “Sir Fako, it seems that our cooperation has already made a good start. Since you helped me solve the difficult problem, I will not be stingy with the price that should be paid. Tell me, what do you want?”
“Sir Sicali is really a straightforward man!” Chen Rui nodded and said, “My condition is to sign a contract with sir lord, so that sir can help the forces behind me to complete an important matter which requires the use of the entire White Feather Estate’s power……”
Sicali’s clone identified Chen Rui as the person of the Bloodfall early on, and he only said that it was an equality contract. The so-called important matter that “requires the use of the entire estate’s power” must be related to the Bloodfall’s wild ambitions, but it was inconvenient to explain in front of Palando and the guards. He nodded immediately, “This is negotiable, we can talk about the specific content privately.”
Chen Rui saved a lot of words as he was so “cooperative.” Just as he was about to speak, Palando said sternly, “Really? Both of you better discuss it now so that I can listen to it.”
Sicali’s clone was taken aback. Seeing Palando’s weird expression, his heart moved. He shouted to the guard, “Miss is a little tired, take her back to rest first!”
Several guards responded, but they did not touch Palando. Instead, they rushed to Sicali’s clone, and a few went straight to the unconscious real body.
Sicali’s clone had never relaxed his guard against Chen Rui, but he did not expect the problem to be on his side.
The clone was about to stop them, but there was a sudden pain in his back. A bloody sharp blade protruded from his abdomen, and he turned his head in disbelief. He saw Palando leaping back quickly with a blood-stained blue dagger in her hand. On the other side, Chen Rui and the lamp spirits seemed to be affected by a strange state. They could only watch the real body being snatched away by the guards.
Sicali’s clone staggered a few steps while covering his bleeding abdomen. He exclaimed furiously, “Why do you do this!”
“Why not?” Palando’s pretty face was full of disdain. “Do you think the reason why I told you so many secrets is really because I submit to you? In a certain game, you may be able to barely play a role that gives me pleasure, but unfortunately, you are not the real one. I initially wanted to give him some sacrifices this time, but I didn’t expect him to fall into such a danger… You all have to pay the price! Now that there are fearless warriors outside, this place has been completely controlled. Don’t try to struggle, and maybe I will let you die a little easier. “
“You…” Sicali’s clone was infuriated. For a long time, he thought he had controlled this masochistic woman, but now he knew that he was being manipulated by the other party.
There was more resentment in Palando’s sneer, “You’re just a fake toy, I’m tired of you. It’s time to throw you away… Let me tell you, when i was ‘checking’ just now, I have already released poison. Your power will be suppressed to its lowest point within 2 hours. As for you, poor toy, I have given you a chronic poison long ago by me during the game. The knife just now completely triggered the poison. If there is no antidote, your whole body will rot and die!”
The guards pounced on Sicali’s clone and Chen Rui. These guards were actually real body’s fearless warriors. They had strong combat power and were quite difficult to deal with. Sicali’s clone was unable to exert his strength as he was severely poisoned. It was difficult to get out of the fearless warriors’ encirclement. Chen Rui, who was “heavily injured”, had no combat power at all. He could only rely on the protection of a few the lamp spirits to barely defend the attack. However, the lamp spirits were also poisoned. Over time, the disadvantages became more and more obvious. Chen Rui had several new wounds on his body.
Palando came to the unconscious real body and wanted to help him lose the shackles, but the shackles were made by Zola. Without a special technique, even the peak stage of the Demon Overlord couldn’t break free. After Palando fiddled for a long time, she was still unsuccessful.
At this moment, the roof suddenly broke open, and another person appeared beside the unconscious real body: Another Sicali.
Sicali’s clone of the peak stage Demon Emperor finally appeared.
Palando was taken aback. Just as she was about to apply the poison, her neck was strangled with the iron-tongs-like hands. At the same time, there was a sound of fighting outside as if they were surrounded by other people.
The clone looked at the unconscious real body. His eyes scanned across the room, and he nodded, “Very well, everyone is here.”
Palando didn’t expect a greater predator to be behind her. As she was twisting and struggling desperately, the clone said faintly, “Your fearless warriors are almost gone. You are also no longer useful.”
There was a horror expression in Palando’s eyes. Her body was wrapped in black flames, and a hoarse scream came from her throat. Soon, her whole person was reduced to ashes.
The fearless warriors rushed over together. The figure of the peak stage Demon Emperor was swift. Wherever he went, there were corpses annihilated by the [Dark Flame]. In the blink of an eye, all the fearless warriors in the room had been slaughtered.
The early stage of the Demon Emperor clone’s poison had already been triggered. He was swaying and standing unsteadily. As he watched another clone slowly walking over, his eyes showed a begging expression. The peak stage of the Demon Emperor clone glanced at him and did not stop. He walked toward Chen Rui. Just when the early stage of the Demon Emperor clone looked a little relieved, he suddenly turned around and the whole room shook drastically.
The early stage of the Demon Emperor clone stared blankly at the big hole in his chest. He fell to the ground with a thump. There was no sign of life. Behind him was a collapsed wall and a large piece of debris destroyed by a powerful shock wave.
“Useless people don’t have the value of existence, isn’t it? Sir Fako?” The peak stage of the Demon Emperor clone gave Chen Rui a determined smile which was friendly like an old friend. “I should explain that I followed these people using a legendary grade item that hides my breath. Even if sir is not injured, it is difficult to detect me. I observed for a long time and only dared to appear when I was sure that sir has lost your combat power. It’s really hard work for sir to deal with that real body.”
“I didn’t expect you would be the final winner…” Chen Rui shook his head regretfully, and he asked, “So, in sir lord’s eyes, do I have value?”
“Then it depends on the performance of sir.” The peak stage of the Demon Emperor clone smiled and said, “I’m still very optimistic about our cooperation prospects, but the relationship may change. If sir agrees, I hope to sign a contract that is more suitable for our current situation.
“Current situation?” Chen Rui looked at the scars on his body caused by the fearless warriors, then he looked at the staggering lamp spirits and said nothing.
There was a faint murderous intent in this clone’s eyes, “In the current situation, sir seems to have another choice. I don’t want to see regrettable things happen, but I will not allow certain threats even more.”
“Choice…” Chen Rui Wei sighed and shook his head before disappearing suddenly.
The peak stage of the Demon Emperor clone was startled. When he raised his head in response, he saw that there seemed to be stars shining outside the huge hole in the roof. An ominous feeling suddenly surged in his heart.
He hurriedly came to Sicali’s real body. As he was about to flee with the real body, he felt that his speed suddenly slowed down. He saw a woman with golden eyes among the cloaked maids beside “Fako” waving at him repeatedly. As the light flashed, all kinds of debuffs such as slow, weakness, confusion, and so on surged at him. This woman cast and switched magic very quickly, and the effect was very strong. Even a Demon Overlord-level magician might not be able to match it.
Before the peak stage of the Demon Emperor clone could respond, the stars in the room were flourishing. In the countless star images, a bright figure appeared on the side, holding a terrifying sharp qi blade against his neck at lightning speed. Judging from the overwhelming breath, his head would fall off with just one swipe.
At this moment, the clone already understood a lot of matters. It turned out that “Fako” was the most patient person. In order to lure him out, he even deliberately let a fearless warrior with weak strength wound him. In other words, from the very beginning, his whereabouts had been noticed by the other party.
“It’s still a matter of choice.” “Fako’s voice sounded, “The White Feather Estate has only one real lord. Is it you? Or is it him?”
The peak stage of the Demon Emperor clone sighed dejectedly. Do I still have a choice?
Hmmm, if I were Chen Rui, I would teach him a ‘lesson’ before giving him the choice☠️
