Chen Rui did not take the Rainbow Valley’s path. It would take at least 6 hours from the capital to the Rainbow Valley then to the Dark Moon. He set a teleportation star point in the Dark Moon and used the [Star Gate]. In the blink of an eye, he returned to the Dark Moon’s house.
Back at the house, he happened to see Dodo, in his appearance, teased the black horse with an apple in the yard. Although the time they spent together was not short, the little dark horse was still ignoring the slime in total disregard.
When Chen Rui first appeared, the little black horse suddenly smelled its master. It rushed over cheerfully and nudged him affectionately. Chen Rui touched the head of the little black horse. With a flick of his fingers, 2 devil pomegs were thrown into the air. The little black horse cheered and tapped its hoofs to jump up. It quickly caught the 2 devil pomegs and started chewing.
Dodo on the side looked jealous. He imitated Chen Rui’s flicking the apple into the air, but the little black horse turned its butt at it with extreme contempt. Dodo tossed for a few times to no avail, and jumped up furiously. He instantly transformed into the appearance of the little dark horse, imitating that posture to catch the apple in 1 bite and ate it with a big bite. Before chewing a few mouthfuls, the little black horse whose portrait right was violated gave the slime a lightning strike.
As a result, Dodo reverted to a translucent green onion under the buzzing electric spark. He was trembling and unable to move while screaming “Ouch!”
Chen Rui touched the mane of the little black horse as he shook his head at the slime on the ground. When he walked outward, Dodo said, “Master! Wait a minute! Now the little princess is blocking the door!”
“Alice?” Chen Rui frowned, “What is going on?”
“I don’t know why. Occasionally, I appeared in the Dark Moon with master’s appearance, but I was exposed by the little princess at a glance. She forcibly probed me about the whereabouts of master. I had to run back here, but I was chased and blocked by the little princess at the door.”
“Did anyone see you when you were exposed?” Chen Rui was surprised. The identity of the human financial officer was a good cover. It would be troublesome if it was exposed because of Dodo.
“I was dragged by the little princess to a secluded place before getting interrogated. Then, I became a hellhound and escaped, but the little princess is very powerful. She kept chasing me until the door. If it weren’t for the magic circle at the door, she would have barged in.”
Chen Rui secretly breathed a sigh of relief. The protector beside Alice was Loki, the servant of the God-Eating Mask. The puppets of God-Eating Mask retained consciousness and wisdom. In case something happened, Loki should know how to deal with it.
This incident was a wake-up call for him. How the identity of “Chen Rui” and “Aguile” can exist at the same time is a problem. In fact, the little loli’s sensing ability is indeed very powerful. I must also be careful when I disguise as Aguile in front of her. Furthermore, Alice once took Dodo to the Blue Lake Mountain Range for “adventure”, so she and the slime can be regarded as “acquaintances.” Being seen through by her is not necessarily due to Dodo’s carelessness.
“Okay. Leave the little princess to me. During this time you try to show up as little as possible. If you want to go out as my appearance, you must be accompanied by Delia, understand?”
“Understood, master.” The slime nodded quickly and wriggled over with a flattery face. Chen Rui knew what Dodo wanted when he saw this guy’s fawning face. He threw a few devil fruits. Dodo no longer dared to turn into the little black horse horse. His body immediately stretched out 2 hands of several meters long to reach out to the fruit in the air effortlessly. He took out a wine bottle like a magic show, and he happily went to the back to taste them.
If someone knew that Chen Rui actually gave the precious devil fruits to a slime to eat with wine, it would surely arouse countless envy, jealousy and hatred.
Chen Rui walked out of the house, and he saw the little loli blocking at the gate.
Seeing “Dodo” finally come out, the little loli rushed over aggressively, but she suddenly paused midway as her little nose twitched. There was an odd light in her big eyes. With an exaggerated jump, she leaped toward Chen Rui excitedly.
As a result… a koala successfully hung behind Chen Rui.
“Brother! You finally came out!” the little loli was extremely excited, “I haven’t seen the real you for a long time!”
This area of the house was very remote. There were no other people except Loki who was hidden in the dark. So, Chen Rui didn’t do anything. He just explained, “In fact, I have been with Princess Shea… Uh, it should be Her Majesty Shea now, to make military suggestions, so Dodo sometimes replaces me…”
Before he finished, the little loli leaned into his ear and whispered, “I know, I won’t tell others. This is a little secret between both of us, right?”
“Yes.” Chen Rui gently patted the little hand hanging in front of his neck, and he touched the blond hair biting his ear. This somewhat doting gesture made the little loli closed her eyes comfortably like a petted cat.
The little loli was 14 years old, and every movement was full of purity and vigour. She was a supremely delicious meal for people who had some kind of weird taste, but for Chen Rui, Alice was just a very cute sister although she was very mischievous.
“After my sister defeated the big villain, Obsidian, she was in the Dark Moon palace yesterday, but she suddenly enthroned in the capital this morning. This caused a sensation in the empire and the entire Demon Realm. The Dark Moon is celebrating wildly today. Athena has also become the representative lord, then many many things happened!” Alice said excitedly, “Did you follow my sister to the capital, then rush back today? I couldn’t find Teacher Zola yesterday or today. Did she use some kind of magic to help you all get there?”
Chen Rui was shocked again. He didn’t expect the little loli to actually be so clever. Her guesses were almost on point. When he was about to speak, the little loli mysteriously added, “I know, it’s a secret. This will also be added to the little secrets between the 2 of us. Alice won’t tell others.”
Chen Rui smiled bitterly and nodded. Then, Alice blurted another surprising sentence, “Brother, I know that my sister needs help in the capital alone. Your return this time must be to bring some people to the capital. Bring me along, ok?”
“Absolutely not now! Let’s wait for a while.” Chen Rui shook his head quickly. At this time, Shea had just settled down and the capital situation was not stable. If Alice went, it would only add chaos and make Shea even more distracted.
The little loli’s mouth suddenly pouted, “If you don’t take me, I will divulge your secrets!”
Great! She is a blackhearted little loli indeed. She immediately turns her face and threatens me once she is unsatisfied.
“Isn’t that just a little secret that belongs to us?” Chen Rui deliberately emphasized the word “us”. Facing the little loli who quickly turned hostile, he had no choice but to use honey trap.
This sentence made the little loli blush, but she didn’t give in, “Women have a strong urge to pour their hearts out. Especially a sad woman, she definitely can’t keep a secret.”
Sad woman? Chen Rui was dumbfounded. With his eyes closed, he could guess that this was another line from an unwholesome book.
“Look, what did I see? There is an Alice hanging around the boss’ neck?” The only person who called Chen Rui as “boss” was the Ms. Miser Bodyguard.
“Olypheus!” The little loli excitedly waved to Ms. Miser. Judging from this familiarity, it was not the first time both of them met, and their relationship was good. Except for Athena, most of the little loli’s good friends have 1 thing in common, flat-chested, which might be the standard of the little loli’s friend selection.
The little loli immediately showed confusion and asked Chen Rui, “Are you the boss of Olypheus?”
Olypheus once complained in front of Alice about how her “boss” was not benevolent, how insidious and cunning he was as well as tricked her into signing an extremely unequal contract. He even did not pay her arrears, deducted her hundreds of millions of black crystal coins and a series of heinous crimes.
At that time, the little loli followed Ms. Miser and furiously criticized the boss who never mentioned his name, but she did not expect that it was actually Chen Rui.
Chen Rui glanced at Olypheus and put the little loli down, “You know, I’m a financial officer who manages money. She is hired…”
“It must be that Olypheus is too greedy for money, so you exploit her, right?” Although the little loli was not satisfied with being let go, she immediately established a positive image of Chen Rui in her heart while her new friend, Olypheus, became an old lady who was greedy in the story told by her brother, “The Tale of the Fisherman and the Fish.”
Isabella’s figure appeared behind Olypheus. She must have received the news that Alice was blocking the door and wanted to get rid of the troublesome little loli. Now that Shea was far away in the capital, the little loli had become “lawless” without a sister who could hold the empire’s little princess.
Olypheus didn’t realize that she had become a negative image, and she came to Chen Rui with a grin, “Boss, are you going to take me to the capital as a helper? But I have been spending too much these days, and I have spent all the money on entertaining friends. Can you give me the salary and benefits of a few months in advance?”
Ms. Miser actually learned to loot a burning house and raise the conditions. I don’t know if she is influenced by Isabella.
“Hmph!” Alice relentlessly debunked Olypheus’s lie, “I have been paying for it these days; you have not spent anything.”
Olypheus calculated it seriously, “At 2 o’clock in the afternoon the day before yesterday, didn’t I treat you to eating cotton candy?
Alice also calculated seriously, “You snatched it from someone else and didn’t spend any money. That guy wanted to molest you, but you robbed all of his money and clothes, then you bought me cotton candy. After that, I didn’t eat it but you ate it yourself. I have treated you to eat hot pot, barbecue, steamed dumplings, cakes, pudding and fruit wine these days…”
“Mom says before that thrift is a virtue.” Olypheus said while sobbing, “But most of the people here know me, so it’s hard to succeed. Why don’t we go to the capital and rob a few guys together? Let’s find those ignorant guys and we split the money that we robbed. You get 1%? No, 0.01%? It’s 1 in a 10,000 ah, so much!”
There were already sweat on Chen Rui’s forehead: Ms. Black Dragon actively and enthusiastically wants to go to the capital for this purpose? And the proportion of the spoils… “So much” is the denominator, ok? Why don’t you give 1 in a billion?
Olypheus, who was frugal, still looks pitiful. When Alice heard the keyword the capital, she immediately ignored other things and nodded desperately, “Okay, okay!”
Chen Rui, “…”
TL: 😑, the little loli is here to get what she wants; Nice math Ms. Miser 😏, 1 in a 10,000 is so much for her, so she is right; Dodo you got to feed something the little horse likes…
