“Okay, dear sir financial officer, I’m going to continue training. Training during this period is very important to me. When the realm is completely stable, it is time to go to the capital. You must be ready to set off at any time,” Shea gently flicked her blonde hair, “If you have time, please send my greetings to Isabella. This time, thanks to her on the battlefield. Otherwise, I will definitely not be able to hold on until you arrive.”
Chen Rui heard Shea talk about Isabella’s performance on the battlefield before. He nodded.
When Shea was about to leave the secret room, she suddenly added a sentence that made Chen Rui sweaty, “When you are free, play The End of the World to me 20 to 30 times.”
After speaking, Princess Royal Highness ignored some guy who felt guilty and walked away.
Chen Rui was still a little nervous when he left the inner courtyard of the palace. I played “The End of the World” to Isabella alone, but Shea actually knows about it. Seems like before the base of the crystal harem is stable, the roof has started to leak.
By the way, there seems to be another tempting perk from Madam Aunt?
I seem to remember that the original sentence is “Whatever you want to do by then”? This sentence inevitably makes any man with a normal orientation feel excited upon hearing it. Anyway, Ms. Secret Intelligence is already the default member of my harem…
As he was thinking about it, he had already left the palace. When he walked to an alley, Chen Rui suddenly felt something abnormal. He had a vigilant expression, then his brows stretched out again, “Olypheus?”
“I knew that you have a good sense of smell.” Ms. Black Dragon’s sneaky figure appeared in front, then she added, “It’s better than the hellhound transformed by Dodo.”
Chen Rui was speechless. Which nose do you use to sniff out that I used my sense of smell?
Olypheus once went wild on the battlefield which made Obsidian suffer a huge setback. She could also be considered a key hero. In the beginning, her injury was more serious. Fortunately, the black dragons were not like crystal dragons who had no reaction to potions. Isabella happened to have the high-purity healing potion that Chen Rui gave her previously. Under the care of Isabella, Ms. Black Dragon, who had strong vitality, recovered very quickly from her injury. Obviously, she was now alive and kicking.
However, Olypheus had never returned to the Sheriff’s house for some reasons since she recovered from her injuries in Isabella’s house. It seemed that she was just staying there. Chen Rui saw her for the first time after he woke up.
“What’s the matter? Why are you acting so mysterious?”
“Very very important matter! Wait a minute!”
Olypheus looked around anxiously like a competent bodyguard. When she was sure of the safety of the neighborhood, she ran over enthusiastically and carefully took out a small notebook from the space ring.
“Boss, this is the total number of enemies I killed this time. Athena said the price of aerial soldiers has doubled, and aerial demonic beasts plus the riders are multiplied by 2 which is 4 times…”
As Ms. Black Dragon said delightedly, her 2 eyeballs had turned into the shape of a black crystal coin.
Chen Rui was stunned for a while. It turns out to be a reimbursement, no wonder she is so enthusiastic. He glanced curiously at the 3 small diamonds on Ms. Black Dragon’s forehead. When he opened the account book and looked at it, he was speechless after only a few glances.
“…The Moonlight Fortress: killed 300,000 enemies, 100,000 aerial legions. 10 black crystal coins for each which is equivalent to 5 million black crystal coins.”
Putting aside the unit of measurement, the question is, how did she end up with the number of 400,000?
“Olypheus, the capital coalition army came to the Dark Moon with only 2 aerial legions this time, the Dragon Rider Legion and the Flying Cloud Legion with a total of less than 10,000 riders. Our army only wiped out around 100,000 enemies in the Moonlight Fortress. Where did you get the number of 400,000?”
Ms. Black Dragon opened her mouth for a long time, then she replied, “Ah… that. Maybe it’s probably… I made a mistake. You can give me a discount based on your conscience.”
Even “conscience” is used? Chen Rui was speechless. He pointed to another one, “Help Krobelus intercept and witness her killing Demon Overlord Anspu, which counts as 100,000 black crystal coins. You even charge for what you ‘witnessed’? Do you kill the enemy with your eyes? I must ask Betty about this. If you lie, I will definitely deduct the money.”
“Wait! Don’t ask Betty! I don’t have a good memory…” Ms. Black Dragon scratched her head, “You just take a look at it roughly first.”
Chen Rui rolled his eyes, and he pointed to the next one, “The battle of Town Dico: killed 300 riders of the Flying Cloud Legion, which is equivalent to 60,000 black crystal coins? 300 times 10 and then doubled is equal to… Are you sure it is 60,000?”
“I’ve been bad at math since I was a kid,” Ms. Black Dragon was already brimming with tears, “My mum passed away before she could teach more.”
“What did you do? You made Olypheus cry.” Isabella’s voice came from the front, and a graceful veiled figure appeared in front. Chen Rui had already discovered her long ago, he just didn’t want to expose her.
When Olypheus saw Isabella, it was as if she had seen a distant relative. She threw herself into her arms and started crying.
“Sister, he bullied me!”
Sister? When did this miser girl become so close with Isabella? Madam Aunt doesn’t look like a rich lord right?
Chen Rui looked enviously at Ms. Miser who buried her head in the breast. He deliberately snorted and said, “It’s useless to call sister. Isabella, do you know that Olypheus actually wants to report false accounts and blackmail me, his employer. “
On the surface, it is possible for others to report false accounts, but this chick girl is too much. Experience is one aspect. The most important thing is the greed of dragons. The total amount is actually hundreds of millions!
“Really? Olypheus?” Isabella stroked Ms. Black Dragon’s hair.
Ms. Black Dragon cried with tears and said, “I’m just bad at mathematics.”
“Olypheus, have you forgotten our contract regulations? On behalf of the Audit Bureau… Uh, I have the right to deduct all the benefits. Also, as a bodyguard, you were almost killed by the enemy on the battlefield. Later, it was me, your employer, who saved your life. How should this be counted? Speaking of which, how much do you have to pay me back!
Ms. Black Dragon was speechless. When thinking that the shining black crystal coins would reduce to nothing, she couldn’t help crying. Isabella glared at Chen Rui angrily, “Don’t tease Olypheus, she is really brave on the battlefield this time.”
Chen Rui enjoyed it very much. He sighed on the surface, “Alright, Olypheus, I’ll consider that you killed 10,000… Um, 12,000 enemies. I will add another 50% to you, 15 black crystal coins for each soldier is equivalent to 160,000 black crystal coins. “
The sobbing voice of Ms. Black Dragon stopped immediately, and she said with a serious face, “No! 12,000 times 15 equals 180,000!”
This kind of fast and accurate calculation made Chen Rui quite speechless. He asked, “Aren’t you bad at math since you were young?”
“Ah, I was wrong just now! It should be 200,000, right?” She asked tentatively with the black crystal coins shining in her eyes.
You really are ‘bad’ in mathematics! Greedy dragons…
Chen Rui had completely lost his temper and took out a crystal, “This is a 100% pure super cold crystal. The market price is at least 200,000 black crystal coins. Do you want this or 180,000 black crystal coins in cash? “
The unwilling Ms. Miser asked further, “Can’t I have both?”
After getting an affirmative answer, Olypheus decisively chose the cold crystal with a tearful expression on her face😭, “A super cold crystal worth 200,000 black crystal coins! I’m rich this time!”
Cold crystal was a kind of magic material which was extremely difficult to purify. The price of low purity was ordinary. The high purity, especially the 100% purity, was really valuable, but for Chen Rui who had the “refining” skill, the cost was less than 2,000 black crystal coins.
Chen Rui didn’t look at Ms. Black Dragon again. He winked at Isabella, “Uh… Isabella, are you free tonight? Can we discuss… life?”
“My sister is not free!” Olypheus answered impolitely while holding Isabella’s hand intimately just like real sisters.
Isabella smiled behind the veil. She did not say “yes” or “no.” It was not so much of a consent to Olypheus’ statement. It was more of seeing through what some guy had in mind.
Chen Rui’s eyes rolled, “Olypheus, I may consider giving you a raise next month?”
“I already have 200,000 cold crystals, enough to be worthy of 4,000 years of your non-equality contract.” Olypheus now had more real-life experience. How could she still not understand that she was tricked by this unscrupulous employee at the beginning. She proudly said, “I don’t even care for your little money! I have noble morals and treat money like…”
Before she finished speaking, Chen Rui suddenly pointed to the front in surprise, “Ah! Who dropped that white crystal coin?”
With a “Swoosh!” sound, Ms. Black Dragon’s figure had appeared at the location that he pointed to, and her eyes were scanning the ground, “Where? Where?”
Chen Rui and Isabella glanced at each other, and their faces coincidentally showed the expression of “as expected”. This is the miser girl who refuses to let go of even the white crystal coin, does she still have noble morals?
A smile appeared in Isabella’s eyes, “Stop making trouble, I’m going to the palace to look for Princess Royal right now for some important matters. Chen Rui, come with me.”
If in normal times, Chen Rui would have agreed without hesitation, the problem was… “The End of the World” that Shea said before leaving made him feel guilty- The “adultery” has obviously been exposed, and the 2 “female protagonists” are about to meet. If the male protagonist is present foolishly, he deserves to be dead; a foolish death.
In fact, Chen Rui didn’t know that “The End of the World” was actually deliberately divulged by Madam Aunt to Princess Royal Highness. Although there were some elements of encouragement which were effective, it was also some % of demonstration and show off. Only Madam Aunt knew how much the % was.
Chen Rui immediately changed the topic, “Why are you looking for Princess Royal? I just came out of the palace, and she seems to be stabilizing her power.”
“2 very urgent news.” When it came to this, Isabella became serious, “This is not a place to talk. Let’s go to the palace. Olypheus, your injury has not fully recovered. Go back first.”
Ms. Black Dragon nodded obediently. Chen Rui didn’t think Isabella had any other intentions since she looked so stern, so he followed her to the palace.
Olypheus can always surprise me 🤣🤣. I thought she was going to look for her mom or something, turns out it was a reimbursement. Is Isabella really going to the palace though😏?
