Chen Rui initially had the intention of dragging the time and recover his injury. Seeing Royce falling out now, he had long prepared for this in his mind. He shouted, “<Aura Blade>!”
Royce had just witnessed Chen Rui sliced Mikas into half with his secret move, so he didn’t dare to underestimate. He quickly focused and waited for it. He didn’t expect it to be a fake move; Chen Rui’s figure had quickly run in the opposite direction.
Royce smiled with despise. His body swayed slightly and he quickly followed up. Royce gradually began to understand Mikas’ feelings previously. This Aguile, or the guy who should be called Chen Rui was quite hard to deal with. Before advancing to Higher Demon, his speed barely reached the early stage of Higher Demon, so Royce couldn’t bother. Now, although the speed after advancing was still slightly inferior from his, Chen Rui was really cunning. He actually couldn’t intercept Chen Rui at once.
However, Royce wasn’t worried as Chen Rui wasn’t escaping toward the city. If he truly escaped to the palace in the city, and he was protected by Princess Royal, Shea, then even Royce wouldn’t dare to act recklessly.
Now that his opponent was seriously injured and flustered. With such a full-speed escape without considering stamina, he should be exhausted soon. Royce had rich experience; he was confident that his strength could defeat Chen Rui easily, so he wasn’t rushing. He followed calmly and patiently waited for the moment his opponent exhaust to launch an attack to capture him.
Chen Rui was lack of aura; he couldn’t exchange any more black potions. Besides, he just took the Healing Potion not long ago, so drinking another potion would be ineffective. He could only run desperately. Finally, the familiar blue lake appeared in front of him. As he ran forward at full speed without considering his stamina, his injuries were bleeding severely, especially the most serious wound on his right chest. Even with the passive ability of <Astral Form>, it couldn’t heal in time.
“Royce!” Chen Rui suddenly stopped, turned around and shouted, “Stop chasing me!”
“Oh? Finally, you can’t run anymore? Now, you don’t even have the energy to use your secret technique right?” Royce who was behind Chen Rui stopped and looked at Chen Rui who was panting. Knowing his opponent was a spent force, Royce didn’t rush, “Did you finally think it through? You don’t want to suffer anymore? Or are you ready to fight for the last time? From your performance when you face Mikas, you’re a very tenacious guy. The latter option might be most probable. I want to remind you that I am not Mikas; you have no chance.”
“But… I can give you a chance,” Royce shrugged. “To be honest, I admire your strength and wisdom, no matter what your identity is and what’s your purpose, as long as you sign the master-servant contract and surrender to me, I can spare your life. Perhaps… I can even help you achieve some objectives. This is your last chance. I’ll give you a minute to consider. If you refuse, I will not hold back and I will attack at full force.”
“I will also give you a minute to consider, surrender or die,” Chen Rui was panting; he actually laughed too. He pointed at the lake, “Do you know why I escape to the blue lake?”
Royce shook his head and sighed, “Don’t insult my wisdom. Deliberately mystifying thing doesn’t make any sense. Are you telling me that you can summon the blue lake sealed dragon to kill me? Actually with your current strength, even if you angered me, you couldn’t catch any opening. Now, you have 40 seconds left to consider.”
“Paglio!” Chen Rui suddenly screamed, “Dumb*ss, if you still don’t show yourself, then I’ll suicide!”
“Paglio?” Royce frowned, “Is that the name you gave to the dragon sleeping in the blue lake? Don’t waste…”
Royce’s intelligence was extraordinary. According to common sense, there was really no chance for Chen Rui in his current situation. The problem was that this human being couldn’t be judged by using common sense at all. Thus, smart people could also be fooled by their own intelligence.
Before the words were finished, a loud voice sounded at the back of Great Demon, “Such an awful human, you actually used such a way to threaten a dragon. You’re like the first one in history.”
Royce’s facial expression changed drastically. With his ability, he actually didn’t realize when did the man come to his back. Then he thought of the blue lake dragon, the demonic fire on his body blazed and he activated his teleportation talent without hesitation. Royce’s first reaction was not to fight but to escape. If that dragon truly woke up, then not to mention the Higher Demon, even the higher level Demon King would be no match.
Royce teleported at full force and appeared more than 10 meters away. However, the voice still came behind his back, “Poor grim reaper, why don’t you teleport again for Master Paglio to see?”
Royce’s heart gradually sank; he slowly turned around. He saw a man with short, dark hair and brown skin grinning. Royce snorted and his demonic fire shone. Two red longswords appeared in his hands which instantly turned into an overlapping, huge red flower-shaped like the famous red demon-eating flower in the Demon Realm, covering Paglio. He went all out at his first strike.
However, this huge flower shattered instantly, and the poison dragon’s voice sounded.
“Using your ultimate move at the beginning, your judgment was pretty accurate. Unfortunately, you’re too weak!”
Subsequently, smashing sound was heard while Royce’s figure had already flown up and fallen hard on the ground right in front of Chen Rui. Royce was covering his mouth while he panted. He clenched his teeth to stand up; the fire on his body had become dimmer.
Royce reacted very quickly. He wanted to hold Chen Rui as a hostage, but Paglio’s figure appeared again in front of him, kicking him into the air, then he heavily smashed the Great Demon to the ground in mid-air. That seemingly casual attacks had already heavily damaged Royce. He could no longer stand.
Chen Rui finally understood how powerful Paglio was. Due to the seal, he was only at the power of a Great Demon King. If his seal was dispelled, he could…
In the Demon Realm, Paglio wasn’t the only 1 that possess Demon Overlord strength. The Raizen the Great of Bloody Empire was the strongest Demon Overlord in the Demon Realm while Catherine the Great of Dark Shadow Empire was also of the same strength, not to mention the scary man who sealed Paglio. Now, Chen Rui’s enemies were just the Higher Demons. After this, he would definitely face Demon King, Great Demon King, Demon Emperor…
Chen Rui wasn’t afraid of this, but he was full of fighting spirit. As long as he persisted and worked hard, becoming a legendary strongman wasn’t a dream. Currently, he had successfully reached Mizar state, and he had killed the Great Demon, Mikas; whereas just a few months ago, he was only a powerless weak man.
“Hey! Stop daydreaming.” The poison dragon’s voice interrupted Chen Rui’s thoughts, “Is this the Great Demon that you mentioned? He’s so vulnerable. If we kill him, then we don’t have to worry about the war contract right?”
“Not him; it’s another Great Demon,” Chen Rui shook his head and reached his hand out shamelessly. “Give me a Jade Pearl. Can’t you see I’m dying?”
Not only Jade Pearl could detoxify, but it also cured the wounds. It was much more effective than Healing Potions. Besides, Healing Potions were low-level potions with relatively long “cooling” time. It was still on cooldown, so drinking it would be ineffective.
“Why are you still so energetic when you’re dying? Didn’t you say you want to suicide? Why don’t you die in front of me now?”
Although Paglio said that, he still threw a Jade Pearl over and looked at Chen Rui for a while. His voice suddenly became surprised,”Your current strength… is Higher Demon?”
“Yeah, I just have advanced not long ago, and I even killed a Higher Demon. However, this guy was very cunning; he only came out at the last moment. I was almost caught by him.” Chen Rui swallowed the Jade Pearl and frowned, “You’re so stingy, only gave me one! Also, this thing tastes really bad. Can’t you improve it?”
“Do you think this is a sugar pill? Such an insatiable guy!” Paglio looked annoyed, “Within 2 months, you actually advanced from Intermediate to Higher Demon! Why do you always have such good luck? You can even acquire something so rare like the grand master’s inheritance! Oh right, like what you said, the good things are wasted on you!”
Royce who had fallen to the ground didn’t faint. He wanted to risk using teleportation to escape again, but he was in an enfeeble state; he couldn’t use his strength. It should be some kind of deadly poison by the poison dragon. Besides, none of Paglio’s words didn’t shock him when he heard that.
The blue lake’s poison dragon actually broke the seal already and awakened!
Aguile really is the human, Chen Rui!
The relationship between the poison dragon and Chen Rui is absolutely not simple!
It takes only two months for Chen Rui to advance from Intermediate Demon to Higher Demon!
What is the grand master’s inheritance? Could it be, the actual grand master isn’t Aldas but…
How many shocking secrets is this powerless-looking human hiding…
However, Royce also knew that for the poison dragon to said so many secrets in front of him, the poison dragon undoubtedly not going to let him live.
If I had known earlier, I should have killed Chen Rui at full force on the way. It was useless to regret now, but he didn’t want to accept it.
“Master Poison Dragon.” Royce thought for a while and finally spoke, “I’m not a guy who isn’t afraid of death, but I’m not willing to die like this. If I’m willing to surrender, will you let me live?”
In the Demon Realm, surrendering to the strong wasn’t a shameful thing, especially a powerful dragon like Paglio.
Paglio looked at Royce curiously, then he nodded and said, “Your strength is slightly bad, but your reaction and brain aren’t bad; I can accept your surrender.”
As Royce just took a sigh of relief, he heard the poison dragon changed his tone, pointing at Chen Rui and saying, “However, the master that you’re signing the contract with isn’t me but this guy.”
Royce’s eyes were filled with anger; he lowered his head in silence. Paglio noticed Royce’s contradiction, and he said, “Do you think that this human is weaker than you, and it is a humiliation to surrender to him? I can assure you that he can easily trample on you after a month.”
Royce thought “Aguile’s” rapid progress and the challenge with Arux after a month, his mind finally began to change. At this time, the poison dragon exposed something surprise again, “I tell you that even the contract signed between me and this guy isn’t an equal contract but a symbiotic contract! An average person can carry only one contract, but this guy is an absolute freak as he has already carried two contracts with him.”
Royce was shocked, looking at Paglio’s serious face in surprise. His eyes then fell on Chen Rui: What power does this human have that he can make the poison dragon, a dragon-race strongman sign the symbiotic contract! Doesn’t that mean his life is a few millions of years long?
The poison dragon even told such a secret. It seems that if I don’t surrender, I will really die.
“I have my own glory and persistence.” Royce took a deep breath and supported his body to stand up. He looked directly at Chen Rui, “If you can promise me one thing, I am willing to be your servant. If not, I would rather die to maintain my glory.”
