The 2 methods of dispelling the [Light Annihilation Seal] mentioned by Isabella were all related to the human world. Now there were only 2 months left, which was urgent.
“There must be some other way!” Chen Rui thought quickly, and his eyes lit up, “Longevity potion! [Light Annihilation Seal] is the loss of vitality, you have taken the longevity potion, it should be able to prolong life or at least alleviate the effect of the mark!”
“If it weren’t for longevity potion, I would have died before Obsidian crusades the Dark Moon. Black potions are only effective for the first time.” This sentence made Chen Rui’s heart tremble. Isabella gently lifted her veil to reveal her disfigured face. “Remember when Sicali came to visit the Dark Moon, the time I kissed you with the detonation as a threat? At that time, my life had come to an end.”
“At that time, you were only a shadow of ‘Charles’. I have to say that you were quite successful in the capital’s performance. Initially, my heart was dead. I didn’t expect that the illusory liar actually left a trace in it. In fact, I just want to indulge myself once at the last moment. Unfortunately, you fool didn’t seize the opportunity. When I ask you to enter the bedroom, you dare not do anything. The carefree acting skills you used to have were completely lost.”
“I really am a fool. I actually missed such a good benefit.” Chen Rui wanted to make a joke, but his nose twitched a little.
“Perhaps this is just the weirdness of playing hard to get.” Isabella’s cherry lips formed a warm smile, “Later, the longevity potion unexpectedly prolonged my life, but it made me fall step by step.”
An idea flashed past Chen Rui’s mind and he said with joy, “There is still a way! Symbiotic contract! After Paglio and I canceled the contract, somehow tens of thousands of years of lifespan were left. I can share some of the lifespans with you! But my training method is very unique, I can’t create a high level contract. Do you know how to create a symbiotic contract? Or should I ask Zola to teach you?”
The basis of contract conclusion was the combination of life power and element power, but Chen Rui’s training was based on the Super System, which was completely different from ordinary humans or demons. Even with element blessing, only [Gravity] could be cast directly. He was still unable to sense the power of elements now. His contract was concluded by the “spiritual link” function of the Super System, but due to the “Star Lord”’s authority issue, the spiritual link was currently only able to sign ordinary equality contracts and master-servant contracts. High level contracts like master-subordinate contract and symbiotic contract couldn’t be realized. Paglio’s symbiotic contract and Guradam’s master-subordinate contract were all initiated by them.
He could only use higher grade link power by breaking through to the Merak realm.
A shining brilliance flashed across Isabella’s face, “Are you really willing to share your life with me?”
Chen Rui nodded seriously, “I’m willing.”
“Demon God’s eyes are really blind, there is actually a foolish guy who is willing to share his life with such a damn woman.” Isabella’s blue eyes were brimming in tears. She stretched out her hand and gently stroked his face. For the first time, there was no coquettishness, only unpretentious gentleness.
“It’s a pity…” Isabella’s gentle gaze seemed unusually calm, “This method still doesn’t work. In order to get stronger and seek revenge, I broke into the Trevante underground cave 200 years ago to hunt the demon eye and captured the lifelong companion beast. It’s where you accompanied Roman last time. The lifelong companion beast is equivalent to a symbiotic contract of the soul which cannot be released. In other words, I can no longer sign a second contract.”
Even the symbiotic contract won’t work? Chen Rui clenched his fists until his white knuckles trembled slightly.
“I have been waiting for death in hatred for a long time. Death for me is just a relief. If it weren’t for killing Broc and Manu, I would have ended my life long ago. But now … I suddenly don’t want to die. I can even survive the pain of the [Light Annihilation Seal]. I just want to live, I just want to accompany you here every day to enjoy tea quietly…”
Chen Rui’s eyes were red, and he hugged her tightly in his arms as if to crush her.
“This 200 years have been too slow, but when it comes to the end, it is too fast…” Isabella felt the warmth of his embrace and closed her eyes, “It would be nice to meet you a few years ago. Fortunately, there are 2 more months.”
“2 months are too short. Just stay with me forever!” Chen Rui hugged her tightly, “Don’t give up hope, I will definitely think of a way, even if it is going to the human world! Remember that promise? I solemnly tell you again, I will personally pick a Snow Dallet and give it to you, my woman.”
This was the promise made by “Charles” at that time. It was a pretentious deal back then. When she died and resurrected, it was still this sentence which was only to give her hope. But now, it was a real promise.
Isabella trembled and did not speak. She just pressed her head to his chest like she was listening to the powerful voice of his heart.
After a long time.
“I’m not your woman yet.”
This sentence stunned Chen Rui. Isabella had already raised her head with an intoxicating blush on her face. She looked straight at him and said boldly, “If you are a man, prove it to me now.”
If she had said this a few hours ago, Chen Rui would definitely go wild, but now there was more sadness and heaviness in his heart. After a moment of silence, he finally made up his mind. He carried her and walked into the house.
The bedroom was still in a quiet and elegant style. Chen Rui put Isabella on the bed. As soon as he took off his shoes and socks, I took the initiative to press the man under her. Her rapid breath spread into his mouth; their lips were connected quickly.
Chen Rui felt her fiery passion. With the wonderful excitement being pressed by the big chest, his breathing became quicker too.
At this moment, Isabella’s body suddenly stiffened as if she was trying to suppress something. Chen Rui immediately felt something amiss. He wanted to stop, but she hugged him tightly, unwilling to let go.
But soon, Isabella couldn’t control it. Her body started trembling violently.
“No!” She didn’t think that the [Light Annihilation Seal] would be triggered at such an unexpected time!
How would Chen Rui have any sexual thoughts now? He immediately put her on the bed, then he saw the ‘flower pattern’ emitted a strange dark golden light on her chest. The pattern kept spreading all over her body. Her snow-white skin seemed to be broken down by countless tiny cracks.
Isabella clenched her teeth as her body twitched involuntarily. Cold sweats were dripping down her forehead, her face twisted with pain, and she groaned uncontrollably.
Chen Rui knew that Isabella’s temperament was extremely stoic. When she was fighting Broc, she suffered continuous severe injuries and still risked her life without a change of her facial expression. Now that she showed such an expression, she must be enduring tremendous pain beyond imagination.
He couldn’t help her relieve the pain. The only thing he could do was to hug her tightly. It felt more uncomfortable than when he was suffering.
After 3 hours, Isabella’s tight body slowly relaxed. Her whole body seemed to have collapsed as she was limp in Chen Rui’s arms. The dark golden “cracks” of her body gradually faded away and returned to the “flower pattern” on her chest.
At this time, Chen Rui’s body and the large bedsheet were soaked in her cold sweat. Her clenched fists left deep red marks and dried blood on her white jade palms.
“I’m sorry.” Isabella’s voice was weaker than ever.
“What are you talking.” Chen Rui’s eyes were red as he carefully wiped the sweat from her forehead, “How often does it happen?”
“In the beginning, it was about once a month, and then it became several times a month. Recently, it has been more frequent, almost every day… It used to happen mostly at noon or early morning, but I didn’t expect it to be today…”
Chen Rui then understood why Isabella often disappeared at noon. When she was dating him at night, she would resolutely ask him to leave once the time was late no matter how sweet it was.
“I’m sorry.” Chen Rui’s voice choked up. After so long, he never noticed this.
Isabella’s pale face barely smiled, “Don’t worry, I won’t die. I don’t want to die now.”
The previous sentence “I just want to live; I just want to accompany you here every day to enjoy tea quietly” was lingering in Chen Rui’s ear again. The brimming tears in his eyes finally could not be restrained and dripped down.
After carrying 200 years of scars and begging for death, she has a strong desire to survive at the last moment. She would rather endure the huge unknown pain every day, just to be able to accompany me to drink a pot of tea quietly under the moonlight.
Chen Rui asked himself at this moment. Who am I to deserve that?
“Trust me, I will help you completely dispel the [Light Annihilation Seal]! Before that, I will try to extend the 2-month deadline. Promise me that no matter what difficulties you encounter, you can’t give up, okay? “
Isabella felt the blazing heat dripping on her face and wanted to reach out to help him wipe away the tears, but she lost even this strength. She just looked directly at his resolute bloodshot gaze, then she finally nodded gently.
Chen Rui kissed her forehead and made up his mind: I must go to the human world! If I can’t find and kill the bastard who scammed the Breeze Shadow Boots, I will go to the Holy Light Mountain to pluck the Snow Dallet Flower!
The way for humans to break through the space in the Demon Realm to return was to use the “seed” implanted in their body beforehand. It was equivalent to a fixed coordinate, but it was a one-time use. He could not go back and forth. There was a considerable risk in the process of this kind of space transmission. He would be annihilated once he fell into the space turbulence.
Chen Rui could also use this method when going to the Demon Realm. Although space magic was almost lost in the Demon Realm, Zola happened to be a master of this. If he got her help, it should be doable.
In case Zola couldn’t do it, there was another way that was to seek the help of the Dark Elemental King. [Light Annihilation Seal] belonged to the spell of the light elementals, so the dark elementals, who were the enemy of the light elementals, would definitely have a solution or at least delay the time of the outbreak. The problem was that Chen Rui was also the enemy of the dark elementals because he killed a large number of dark elementals in the Blue Lava Estate including a Demon Emperor-level elite dark elementals. Therefore, he must look for the Earth Elemental King who was also one of the 3 Kings of Darkness as a mediator.
In fact, there was a “space seed” of the human world in Chen Rui’s body. It was obtained after killing Nero. However, this seed was absorbed by him in the “Shura state” at that time, so he was still unable to sense it now. He could thus only use the above 2 methods.
TL: Which method will work in the end?
