These days Chen Rui had gotten used to the helicopter-like wyverns, so it wasn’t as comfortable riding the bus-like tri-horned rhino now. After about an hour, the tri-horned rhinos that had been sprinting all the way finally arrived at the destination.
The place where Jade Dragonfruit grew wasn’t far from where Paglio liked to stay. Chen Rui was afraid that the poison dragon would come forward to greet or that Alice would find any clues, so he deliberately said loudly, “Little princess, we are here. I remember Jade Dragonfruit should be on the hill right?”
“Why are you so loud for?” Alice jumped off the tri-horned rhino with dissatisfaction. “Are you hiding something here that you’re afraid of me finding it out?”
She got it right! Chen Rui was cold sweating: Her reasoning skill shows again, and it’s still so strong!
Fortunately, Alice didn’t continue to deduce; suggested with interest instead, “Why not we barbeque again? Just like the last time we came to the blue lake.”
Chen Rui didn’t have the mood for picnic, so he shook his head and said, “Next time, we will go back after finish picking the Jade Dragonfruits.”
“I have been exhausted all these while, and it’s so rare for me to be out,” Alice said with her protruded lips☹️. “Do you really hate being alone with me? Didn’t you come along with Athena a few times to gather herbs?”
As she said, the little loli seemed to think of something and she looked suspicious, “Are you and Athena hiding something from me? Why does she look weird every time she talks about you?”
“No such thing!” Chen Rui knew that Athena worried about the poisoning incident the most, so perhaps the keen little loli noticed something wrong.
“No, something is wrong!” Alice looked at Chen Rui with suspicion. “I always feel that there’s something wrong with you guys. She is now blushing more compared to the past few years that I’ve known her. Did you swindle Athena’s… that?”
What is this! It was concerning the virginity, so Chen Rui quickly shook his head, “How am I dare to do that? You are oversensitive! By the way, don’t you know <Mind Reading>? Why don’t you try that cause I definitely didn’t!”
“That <Mind Reading> skill, you’ve known that it was fake a long time ago.” The little loli smiled like a little fox, “Let me guess; did you learn it from Athena?”
Seeing Alice’s expression, Chen Rui inexplicably felt anxious.
“I remember that the last time I said that I know <Mind Reading>, you seemed to be particularly nervous,” Alice frowned and looked like she was recalling, “It seemed to be about the grand master’s inheritance. Could it be that… there’s something wrong with the inheritance? You’re really good at telling story. Could it be that… the wilderness and inheritance are simply just some interesting stories made up by brother?”
Someone felt a chill down his spine: That’s too keen! Such an amazing observation! That was his greatest secret, so he couldn’t let the cat out of the bag.
“Little princess, you truly misunderstood! If there is no inheritance of the grand master, how do I do so many things? I even have the ability to resist poison and tame beasts?”
“Perhaps it’s your initial ability or the ability that you obtained after coming to the Demon Realm, but you deliberately hide them or you are waiting for a certain timing… I think you may be a lot stronger than this, perhaps even having strong combat power like Athena?” Little loli narrowed her eyes and examined Chen Rui, as if a CIA officer.
Chen Rui was truly pouring in cold sweat this time. Has little loli been monitoring me in some way? Or did Holmes… fucking cross-over?
It seems that reasoning and observation skills are the most powerful hidden talent of the Lucifer Family… In terms of this, the little loli is 10 times more powerful than her sister who has a beautiful misunderstanding.
“So, confess to me!” Alice’s sudden raise pitch shocked Chen Rui, “Did you have any bad intention toward me back then?”
It turned out to be a mischievous wild guess again! A false alarm! Chen Rui wiped a sweat. To avoid the little loli shifting her suspicion toward the greatest secret, he had to go along, “Since it has come to this, I have to tell the truth! I really do have some sort of… liking toward little princess. Every time I look at you makes me think of my sister in the human world. As my little life was in the hands of little princess back then, I dare not say it for fear of being blamed by you.”
“It is really liking…” Alice’s eyes widened and looked at Chen Rui in surprise. The strange brilliance of her purple eyes flickered for a while and gradually dimmed while she lowered her head.
“So, all this while, I’m just a sister in your heart…”
The little loli lowered her head and her slightly trembling body seemed to be crying. She suddenly raised her head, but there was no tear in her big eyes. Instead, she looked like she was thinking, “The words after… I don’t seem to remember… Wait, let me look at some reference.”
As Alice said, she took a few books out of her space bracelet, picked one and started reading seriously. Chen Rui, who was almost stunned, leaned over and saw the cover of these “references.”
“Confessions of A Lolicon”
“The Brother and Sister in between Taboo and Incest”
“Brother, We Can’t Do This”
By reading the names of the 3 books, Chen Rui’s cold sweat was out of control like the Yellow River – It turned out that the unhealthy books in the Princess Retail Store are not destroyed, but they are secretly hidden by little loli.
“Alice!” Chen Rui grabbed the book in her hand. “Don’t read this kind of book! I’ll give it to Princess Royal!”
“You dare!” Alice glanced with her eyes while holding another book titled “Magic! Whoever You Stare Gets Pregnant”. Chen Rui’s entire body was immediately petrified, and the book he grabbed was immediately taken back.
Alice skillfully kept all the books back to her space bracelet, “Hmph! If you dare to report me, I’ll tell my sister now that you have bad intentions over me!”
Chen Rui was full of sweat – The beautiful misunderstanding with Shea isn’t solved yet. If Alice did that, the label of sister-con and lolicon will collide. I’m afraid that the explosion caused by this collision between two extremes would turn me, the innocent man into ashes.
“Princess Alice, you can’t frame me like that!” Chen Rui had to admit defeat, “I’m really afraid of you. I promise you that I won’t complain to Princess Royal, and we will start the picnic now, okay?”
“Wouldn’t you be fine if you said it earlier?” The little loli smiled sweetly, and her cute face suddenly turned red, “Also, don’t call me little princess or Your Royal Highness anymore; I prefer you to call my name directly.”
Is that the line from those unhealthy books just now? Chen Rui knew that he was no match with the current little loli, so he could only nod his head.
Seeing him agreed, Alice jumped happily.
“Brother, go pick some Jade Dragonfruit; I’ll prepare the picnic tools here.”
The word “brother” sounded smoother as little loli said, and it sounded very natural with no signs of pretentious. It seemed that her acting was getting better and better that Chen Rui had to admit that she was good.
Jade Dragonfruit grew on the opposite hill. When Chen Rui took a basket and started walking, he suddenly found out that someone was tracking him. Based on the footsteps, it shouldn’t be Paglio. He deliberately pretended to drop something and leaned over to pick it up. In his peripheral view, he saw a tiny figure quickly hid behind a rock. It is actually Alice!
Why is little loli tracking me? Did she find out something? Or does she want to prank me?
Countless thoughts flew through his mind. He acted as he didn’t notice and continued to move forward. Alice’s tracking technique was very amateur; sometimes she even inadvertently made a sound. Yet, the guy being tracked only looked back, then he went along with Alice and moved forward after he found no abnormalities.
Jade Dragonfruits grew on a shrub-like tree with a thick orange-like skin and fresh pulp inside. Chen Rui squatted and started picking Jade Dragonfruits. Under the effect of <Analytical Eyes>, he could clearly feel little loli hide herself from place to place all the way, as she was slowly approaching.
Soon, Alice had crept to a tree behind him. Chen Rui guessed that little loli was probably pranking, so he didn’t expose her to avoid further troubles. Then, when Alice came to his back, he keenly felt a gust of wind hitting the back of his head swiftly.
Chen Rui’s fighting nerves were instantly triggered. Sneak attack?
His current strength had reached the middle level of Intermediate Demon, and he had rich practical experience. Even if Alice used her <Dark Flame>, she still couldn’t rival. At that moment, Chen Rui made a choice between dodging, counterattacking and not moving.
“Poom!” The human who was focusing on picking fruits received a heavy blow at the back of his head and suddenly fell unconscious to the ground.
Alice as the main culprit was taken aback instead. She dropped the wooden stick in her hand and turned Chen Rui’s body over anxiously.
“Chen Rui! You won’t die right! I wasn’t intentional…”
Not intentional, but you still sneak attacked? Chen Rui who pretended to have fainted was scolding furiously in his mind. With his current Alkaid state physique, along with Star Power’s defense, he didn’t suffer much damage even though that blow just now wasn’t light. However, that wooden club did have a special stun effect making his brain a little bit dizzy now.
With his eyes closed, Chen Rui could feel Alice’s warm, little hand touched his forehead and checked his breath. She even put her head on his chest to listen to his heartbeat. She finally took a sigh of relief after confirming that Chen Rui wasn’t dying.
“This stun enchanted wooden club is still quite useful. Too bad it can only be used a few times. Next time I’ll let Old Gauss make me another one.” The little loli said to herself. She crouched down, approached, turned around, changed a few directions and searched his body for a while.
Is she searching for something? Chen Rui felt weirder. He had no treasure with him. Even if he had something, it’d be kept in the storage. While he was suspecting, suddenly his abdomen sunk. Alice actually sat on him.
Chen Rui could feel the sitting posture with her legs opened without opening his eyes… that seems a bit too… flirtatious.
Subsequently, Alice slowly leaned down and her body was closer. Her warm breath was approaching his face; she seemed to be a little nervous as well. Chen Rui could smell the faint fragrance from her body and the warm temperature of her body on him which made his heart beat crazily.
What is this little loli trying to do?
