The lamp spirits quickly settled in the palace. With the help of Kaguli, they quickly became familiar with the environment of the palace and the duties of guards. On the surface, Kaguli was still an imperial guard commander. Even some ill-intentioned people only knew that a batch of new guards was added and the original manpower under Obsidian was all transferred. They had no idea of the true power of these guards.
Chen Rui found Teacher Tetenis in the house arranged by the secret intelligence department. Chen Rui learned from Tetenis that the phantom coral and blue star water were very rare materials which were still on the market 2,000 years ago, but they were hardly seen now. These 2 materials could only be found in the Dead Sea. The boundless and mysterious Dead Sea was located in the extreme south of the Fallen Angel Empire. Only a handful of people could come back alive from there. It was a very ominous land of the Demon Realm.
Chen Rui thought of the Earth Elemental King Moore in the underground world of Mountain Xilang. After Moore absorbed the power of Fertile Yuan Soil, he would go to the Dead Sea. It seems like it is necessary to travel with him by then.
This time, Chen Rui brought back something from the City of Stars which aroused great interest of Tetenis. The magic lamp made from the extinct light-gathering insect made the old man fall in love with it. Chen Rui also gave Tetenis 2 assemble puppets, 1 was complete while the other was damaged. He wanted to see if ordinary demons could control this powerful war machine.
Due to Shea’s “compromise”, the capital seemed calm on the surface, and the original Leisure Moon Inn in the southern suburbs was renovated without any hindrance. The initial Princess Retail Store’s branch also suffered a bleak business under the constraints of various merchants. Judging from this sign, Shea had already lost by 1 move.
Of course, for Shea, who was the ruler, the Princess Retail Store was just a trivial matter. During this time, she worked hard to solve many problems left by Obsidian. She also forked out a lot of money from the Dark Moon’s accounts to make considerable achievements in supporting the family and settling the residents. The destroyed places such as the Central Plaza, the arena, and the main streets were all repaired, and many special facilities were added. They seemed to have a brand-new outlook which left a pretty good impression on the people.
Shea did a very good job of winning people’s hearts. Since most of what she was fighting for was for the small families or residents, she did not take Angelie and the others to her heart. Moreover, the related industries of the elder families had also received a lot of care, so the progress was quite smooth.
Chen Rui was not in the capital these days. Instead, he stayed with Zola in the Rainbow Valley. As Shea now had the protection of the Lamp Spirit Guard Team and the imperial guard, Zola could free up her hands for her research work.
However, Ms. Fairy Dragon was not studying the lamp spirits this time. Instead, it was… Sir Deputy Valley Master.
Chen Rui did not hide anything from Zola during his trip to the civilization relics. He said everything including the territory kingdom’s spiritual imprint which he obtained. Zola’s eyes lit up when she heard this. She didn’t even care about the lamp spirits that she initially wanted to study. She directly took Chen Rui to the laboratory.
Then Chen Rui became the experiment subject again gloriously. Looking at the instruments and items, he couldn’t help but feel like he had returned to the time when he first met Ms. Fairy Dragon. Things were impermanent. The former “terrifying and cruel” mad scientist was now a gentle and lovable companion. She was also very careful to pay attention to his safety in those experiments.
Despite many precautions, Zola’s experiment was still not that safe. There were several dangerous situations. Fortunately, Chen Rui was not who he used to be. Whether it was in terms of experiment or magic circles, he could be called an expert. He quickly averted the disasters. However, Chen Rui was a little speechless by an experiment method used by Ms. Fairy Dragon at the end. It was the ancient runes with Demi-God’s territory power that contributed to the marriage of both of them back then.
Zola had a good grasp of these runes now and could control them freely. The dangerous front part was separated out, leaving the back part. The meaning of this part of ancient runes was… aphrodisiac, eros, mating…
In the spirit of dedicating to science, Chen Rui accepted the experiment with enthusiasm and excitement. To be honest, it really took perseverance to hold onto it when facing a group of beautiful lamp spirits who were ready to dedicate themselves all day long. He had suppressed his desires for a long time; he long wanted to have a vigorous sex. He initially wanted to resist from disturbing Zola since she wanted to concentrate on the experiment. Unexpectedly, Ms. Fairy Dragon actually used this experiment method. Why would the Deputy Valley Master not devote himself to the Madam Valley Master?
Under the urging of that rune, the 2 quickly rolled together, then there was the exciting banging scene. Chen Rui was naturally energetic. Ms. Zola, who was a dragon, was not weak either. Just now, she was exhausted and panting for mercy just now. After a while, she was vigorously taking the lead…
However, at the moment of extreme entanglement and enthusiasm, Zola suddenly felt like something terrifying. She trembled suddenly and forcibly suppressed the enthusiasm stimulated by runes, and fought hard to break free from Chen Rui. When she reached one side, she pointed her hand at the beam of light that released the power of runes, and the light gradually faded.
Chen Rui was taken aback. He thought that there was a major problem with her body, and the lustful desire quickly dissipated. He quickly sat up and held her shoulders, “Zola?”
“Don’t touch me!” Zola shuddered again and called out abnormally.
Since Chen Rui had the most intimate relationship with Zola, they had always been in love with each other. This intelligent woman who liked to fake daze had an extremely important position in his heart.
Objectively speaking, regardless of his power or appearance, he was actually not worthy of Zola. However, this arrogant dragon beauty just fell so hard for him and didn’t even mind that he had other women. Chen Rui was afraid of Zola at first, but now he was afraid of losing her. Now that he saw Zola’s abnormal demeanor, he was even more worried. His hands stopped.
Zola’s body was wrapped in a layer of cold current, and the redness on her body was quickly cooled down by this cold current. The current changed again and turned into a skirt that wrapped her attractive body.
“We… shouldn’t do this anymore.” Zola’s words made Chen Rui feel dejected.
“Why? What happened?”
“I have a problem with my body. Anyway… I have already decided.” Zola stood up and put on her glasses, “Before I surpass Demon Overlord or you completely master the power of this territory kingdom, let’s separate for a while.”
Chen Rui was stunned by these words. Both of them had been very close. Especially Zola had a certain nature of dragons. She not only had no resistance to sex. On the contrary, she was quite enthusiastic, second only to the little charming girl, Kia, but she suddenly made such a decision.
He got up and came to Zola as he looked into her eyes. A faint light shone on Zola’s glasses, blocking his gaze. Chen Rui knew Zola very well. This little means of trying to cover up was just a habitual expression of her guilty conscience. He understood and shook his head, “Did you just absorb the power of spiritual imprint just now?”
The light on Zola’s glasses flashed. She lowered her head, “En.”
Chen Rui was even more certain of his guess, “Tell me the truth, if we still have… sex in the future, what will happen?”
Zola bit her lip and answered, “The spiritual imprint you obtained contains the essence of the territory kingdom. My current power level has reached the final bottleneck of the peak stage of the Demon Overlord. My territory is only one step away from the kingdom. I just wanted to use the power of runes to feel the mystery of this territory kingdom to facilitate my realization of the breakthrough. However, I accidentally devoured a little of the power essence, and the power in my body has also changed. This essence is extremely irresistible to me now. Even though without the urging of runes, as long as we… do that, I will involuntarily devour and absorb the power of that essence, then you will gradually lose the power of the imprint territory kingdom.”
While saying this, Zola lowered her head, “Unless you or I can break through to the level beyond Demon Overlord, otherwise… Although I’m only 1 step behind, this step is quite difficult. It was enough to make countless peaks stage Demon Overlords from ancient times to the present to have regrets for life. I have already benefited a lot after receiving the soul power from you, plus a bit of the essence of the territory kingdom that I absorbed today, I probably will be able to break through within 1,000 years. You’re the master of the territory kingdom. With the magic inheritance power, as long as you reach the peak stage of the Demon Overlord, the subsequent steps should be much faster than me. Before that, let’s not meet again. Let’s concentrate on training and strive to reach that realm as soon as possible. “
The thought of separating from the man she loved for hundreds or thousands of years made Zola feel sad, but she had to make this decision.
“I see.” Chen Rui sighed, “Since this is the case, then let’s… continue.”
“What?” This time it wasn’t Zola’s habitual fake daze, but she really thought she had heard it wrong.
“Don’t use magic! Listen to me first!” Chen Rui’s yelling managed to stun Ms. Fairy Dragon. He took 2 steps forward and held her tightly in his arms, “Can you directly break through the bottleneck if you absorb this territory kingdom’s essence power ?”
Zola understood what Chen Rui meant and refused resolutely, “No way!”
Chen Rui grinned, “To tell you the truth, people in the ancient alchemy civilization are not the same as me in physique and training methods. The power of this territory kingdom is actually not suitable for me. As long as the spiritual imprint is still there, it’s fine. As for the essence, I can give it all to you to help you break through the bottleneck.”
Zola didn’t believe him; she kept shaking her head. Chen Rui took off her glasses and cupped her face, “Look into my eyes! I have my own way of training. It won’t be long before I can break through Demon Overlord and catch up with you step by step. “
Chen Rui was telling the truth. What he really relied on was not the ancient alchemy civilization, but the Super System. That was his way. It would be a great choice if this territory kingdom could help Zola to break through to Demi-God as soon as possible. As for the City of Stars, it was still under his control as long as he did not die. The spiritual imprint would not disappear.
“If you really consider me to be your man, accept the power of this territory kingdom! If you let me go now, then I will never see you again!”
The last ultimatum that Chen Rui said shocked Zola. Her eyes were a little red, and she finally stopped shaking her head. She wanted to say something but she stopped because she knew that the 2 words “thank you” were really unnecessary based on their relationship.
“Tell you something, the way for those guys in the ancient alchemy civilization to increase their strength…” Chen Rui muttered a few words in Zola’s ear, “You don’t want me to do this, right? I have more than 2,000 lamp spirits by my side now.”
Zola nodded subconsciously as her face suddenly flushed red. The rune beams with “special” meanings around them began to flash again.
TL: Wouldn’t that mean the City of Stars can no longer be upgraded?
