Black Sea God looked at the respect on Chen Rui’s face, and he revealed a deep smile, “I’m suddenly a little interested in the compensation that you mentioned previously. Perhaps this can be the only way for you and your sailors to survive. “
Facing the huge beast that saw through his own strategy, Chen Rui thought about countermeasures while using the delaying tactics, “Sir is a discerning person. You should be able to see the authenticity of the snake pattern badge.”
Black Sea God’s smile turned cold, “Don’t you think I’m really afraid of that Satan! If it weren’t for this damn place that my territory kingdom…”
Chen Rui’s eyes turned. His expression became more humble as he bowed, “Sir really has a good eyesight. Please forgive me… Actually, I have nothing to do with Satan. May I know what kind of compensation I have to pay in order to satisfy sir?”
“Treasure!” Black Sea God exclaimed, “I don’t know what existence is behind you, but you should be the inheritor of the Dark Dragon Emperor. I’m not greedy, half of the treasure is enough. I must have a few items as well. We can sign a related equality contract, provided that your body can still carry the contract.”
“It’s a pity that I can no longer sign the second contract… By the way, the Demi-God powerhouse can cancel the contract, right?”
Black Sea God frowned, “The Demi-God powerhouse can carry more than 1 contract, but we cannot cancel the third party’s contract. We can only control our own contract and cancel the contract whose strength is lower than us. We can only sign 1 contract of the same type. These are the most basic common sense, you don’t even know?”
“It turns out to be like this!” Chen Rui just realized. “Since my strength is far inferior to sir, even if I give up the original contract and sign this contract, sir may cancel it?
“It takes a considerable price to void the contract. If your compensation satisfies me, it is a win-win situation. I will naturally not do stupid things.” Black Sea God said calmly, “This is the most generous condition I will give you. You can choose now whether to refuse or die.”
“The generosity of sir is comparable to the brilliance of the 2 moons.” Chen Rui suddenly smiled, “It’s just that I wonder why sir didn’t let me sign a master-servant contract? Isn’t sir not even afraid of Satan? Why will you be concerned about the existence behind me? Maybe… As sir said, only 1 contract of the same type can be signed, right? So can I assume that sir has already signed a master-servant contract with a certain existence, and you are the passive party?”
The expression on the man face finally changed a bit. Chen Rui said, “Even without this sentence… Since the territory kingdom of sir is restricted in this sea area, why haven’t you left for so many years? My bold guess is that sir had no choice, right? In other words, among the few items that sir needs in the treasure, 1 of them is crucial for you to get rid of some kind of bondage.”
The man face of the Black Sea God and his huge mouth roared at the same time. The surrounding waves blasted out water pillars that were tens of meters high and the entire sea area was shaking.
Chen Rui tried his best to control his mind and resist the terrifying power. His mind became calmer.
He knew that these speculations just now had hit the soft spots of the huge beast. Although it was unlikely that the opponent would burst into rage, he prepared the God-Eating Mask and [Star Diversion] just in case.
“Sir is a discerning person. Let me tell you the truth, Satan and I are actually a kind of… can be understood as a cooperative relationship which is why I can have a snake pattern badge. However, I don’t really want to call this troublesome partner because I don’t want to share some interests with others. Nonetheless, once my interests are fundamentally affected, I can only bite the bullet. Finally, I shall remind sir that I have some inconspicuous little skills. Even if I do not summon Satan, it is not a problem to escape even in the kingdom of sir.”
The last sentence made the huge beast’ breath even more aggressive. Chen Rui shrugged, “In fact, I have a real interest in sir’s previous “win-win”. Perhaps this is the only basis for our equal cooperation. I believe sir and I will have satisfactory results by then.”
These words implied intimidation and temptation which was like returning the previous words of the huge beast.
Huge beast gradually recovered his calm again. If Chen Rui had threatened him like this earlier, he would have turned hostile long ago, but he had to consider more things when everything was analyzed. This guy is carrying a pass to the Dark Dragon Emperor’s treasure. I have noticed that special breath when he first entered the territory kingdom. Otherwise, why make a big fuss just for the sacrifice of nagas.
“I can give up on the treasure, but I have 2 conditions. First, destroy the contract pillar that binds me. Second, find a purple spirit crystal ball and give it to me intact.” Black Sea God finally stated his conditions after pondering for a moment, “You must sign a contract with me. Otherwise, I would rather give up the hope of freedom and destroy you completely now.
Chen Rui understood Black Sea God’s concerns. If I don’t sign the contract, it is impossible that he will let me leave. This way, the goal of this trip is not only the origin fragment of the dark element, but also the treasure of the Dragon Emperor. The best result is that the origin fragment is in the treasure which can kill 2 birds with 1 stone.
In any case, it is considered a good result to be able to pass this misty sea area safely like this.
“Okay! However, if I help you achieve these 2 things, you must promise me an additional condition. I haven’t thought about this condition yet, but it surely won’t cause you harm.”
Black Sea God agreed without thinking. Anyway, he could simply tear up the contract at a certain price if this condition was too harsh. Chen Rui’s thoughts turned and he channeled out the power of the spiritual link. A shining contract appeared in front of the Black Sea God. Black Sea God looked at the contract and attached his own soul imprint. Chen Rui also did the same accordingly. The contract turned into 2 golden lights, submerged in both their bodies.
In the equality link in the link, there was an A-level link that stated the name was “Red Pipit.” it was followed by the content of the contract. The label prompted: “Can either be truncated or canceled.” This meant that Chen Rui also only needed to pay a certain amount of aura, then he could also unilaterally cancel the contract.
The name of this big octopus is Red Pipit? And not… a certain legendary King Paul the Octopus in my previous life?
Chen Rui smiled slightly, “Sir Red Pipit, I think our cooperation will be very pleasant.”
The man face of the huge beast seemed to be surprised, “How do you know my name?”
“These are just trivial details, don’t need to care too much. What I want to ask is whether I can leave with my sailors since we have signed the contract? If possible, I hope Sir Red Pipit can help guide the way to the Hidden Misty Island.”
Red Pipit pondered a little, “If you want to advance, you will face at least 2 tests. Although those guys are far less powerful than mine, they will definitely not be easy with your strength. One of them is at the Hidden Misty Island that you are going to. Due to certain restrictions, I can’t tell you too much, just 1 sentence: Firm faith and fearlessness. Of course, some luck is needed here. Even if it’s just a little bit, it’s very important. From here on toward the south, you will be able to reach the Hidden Misty Island in about 3-4 days. I can give you a ride without any obstacles along the way. However, once you get there, you can only rely on yourself.”
As Octopus King spoke, the human face gave Adeline a faint look. When his 5 eyes flickered, the main sacrifice imprint on Adeline’s head gradually disappeared. The sailors who fell into the water were automatically sent to the Devil’s Snare Ship. Then, they brave the wind and sailed southward at an unprecedented speed.
When the Devil’s Snare Ship completely disappeared from sight, the face of the huge body showed horror, “Who is this guy? This contract’s rule power… actually completely surpasses Demi-God. It is even above the Dragon Emperor’s contract. Could it be…”
Chen Rui didn’t know that the spiritual link of the Super System brought a powerful shock to Emperor Octopus. After passing this obstacle, his tight body suddenly relaxed. Only then did he discover that the clothes in the Star Armor were soaked in cold sweat.
To be honest, negotiating with such a gigantic and terrifying monster can only be described as unscientific in the original world, but it really happened in this world, although it is equally unscientific.
Chen Rui’s gaze turned to Adeline, “Ms. Adeline, remember what I said, never give up hope.”
“En! Thank you, Sir Aguile.” Adeline nodded and showed a pure smile. Her main sacrifice imprint was canceled by Red Pipit, so the burden that was suppressed in her heart had disappeared. She seemed a lot more relaxed.
All the nagas who survived the disaster came to Chen Rui and bowed together. Even Strena put aside her arrogance of the past. Let alone strength, Strena was far inferior in terms of just the calm determination when facing the Demi-God-level powerhouse.
When the Black Sea God requested Adeline and others to stay earlier, Chen Rui could completely abandon them, but he did not do so. Therefore, all the nagas sincerely felt grateful for Chen Rui.
Chen Rui was not pretentious. He accepted the bow from the nagas and said with a smile, “We have a long journey, sailors. Strena, I used up too much power, so I need to rest for a couple of days. You shall command during this period of time.”
Strena knew that it was impossible to return to the Thunder Snake Archipelago for the time being. If Chen Rui can really complete the contract with Red Pipit, it means that the “Black Sea God” who had enslaved the nagas for many years would leave the place where he is imprisoned, then the naga tribe will also get real freedom. Whether it is for official or private reasons, I must go on this trip.
The female naga warrior’s green eyes showed respect for the first time, “This is my honor, Sir Captain.”
Chen Rui relaxed completely and entered the ship cabin. I can overcome the obstacle this time because I activated the [Royal Star Transformation]. Chen Rui was a little uneasy because of the low number of faith crystals.
After Shura devoured the Wheel of Hera that day in the White Feather Estate, my faith power seems to be seized by some special power. The faith crystal is greatly reduced every day. In the battle of the Deep Blue Palace of the water elementals, Shura awakened again. The production speed of the faith crystal is even slower. Recently, I activated the [Royal Star Transformation] more frequently. The accumulated faith crystal is almost running out. I can only use it 2 times.
Obviously, it is Shura’s tricks. I keep feeling uneasy as long as this stubborn and mysterious enemy exists. However, Shura could not be completely eliminated whether in the Star Evolution or the [Refined Mind] test previously. This time, Shura’s awakening is not simple. Especially the weird power that was activated to compete with the 3 Elemental Kings was far above my power.
Chen Rui had a hunch that one of the biggest tests was about to come.
TL: Could it be that Black Sea God is one of the guardians of the Dark Dragon Emperor’s treasure? But now he has a change of mind and wants to get out of this place? The origin of Shura is really intriguing…
