“Shouldn’t you all apologize?” Michelle disliked Landbis all along, so she said with dissatisfaction.
“Don’t go too far, Michelle.” Philly frowned, “Senior Landbis is from the Blue Glory Empire…”
“Forget it, Michelle.” Chen Rui gained a lot today and was in a good mood, “There is no need to care about these people, let’s go.”
“What does ‘no need’ mean! I dare you to say it again!” It was Student Quinn with a cold and arrogant expression. His eyes were full of provocation. From the eyes of such a ‘genius’ who had received much attention, the plain dismissal was more humiliating than being slapped in the face directly.
“You can’t afford to lose, and you still want to argue?” Chen Rui glanced contemptuously at the students who looked bad. “You can tell from the quality of the students that the Starlight College, which is famous across all empires, is just that.”
Quinn was furious and was about to make a move when a sturdy college teacher came forward, revealing an aggressive mental oppression. “Students can apologize if they are rude, but if you insult Starlight College, you must give us an explanation.”
This teacher’s name was Andrew, and he usually protected his shortcomings the most. He was already secretly dissatisfied with the early end of this trial. He dared not say anything in front of Grand Master Finoia previously. Now, when he heard the other party ‘questioned’ Starlight College, he immediately began to bring up the matter with it.
“Is this an insult? I kind of understand why there are such students. It turns out that there is a teacher who has misled the children.” Chen Rui smiled with a hint of coldness, “As for the explanation…”
At this moment, Ariel, the red-haired girl with a talent for spirit sensing, shivered suddenly. Her gaze toward Chen Rui was full of fear.
Andrew suddenly felt enveloped by a terrifying mental oppression. His tiny oppressive breath was like a candlelight under a violent wind; it was instantly extinguished without a trace.
There was an extremely harsh murderous qi in that momentum which seemed to be condensed from the blood sea and the corpse mountain. It frightened Andrew out of his wits. He instinctively felt that as long as the other party made a move, his body and soul would be annihilated immediately. His body could not help but tremble slightly.
Except for Ariel, most of the students behind did not notice Andrew’s abnormality. But Turiave, another sturdy teacher, sensed the crisis. A thick yellow mirror-like light glowed all over his body, and with a tap of his feet, he was already blocking in front of Andrew, “Be careful!”
As Turiave made a defensive posture, his figure suddenly stopped and froze in place.
“You should feel fortunate that this is the Silver Moon Celestial Capital. Considering the face of the elf tribe and Grand Master Finoia…” Chen Rui scoffed coldly and did not continue. He said to Michelle and Blanche, “Let’s go.”
Seeing Chen Rui turning around disregarding everyone else, the students were furious. Quinn couldn’t hold back anymore. A long sword appeared in his hand, and he had already jumped in the air. With a violent shout, he was just about to slash when he saw a dazzling flame, and the air instantly became hot.
The strong sense of crisis made Quinn hurriedly parry with his sword, and he was immediately knocked over by a strong force. After all, he was among the top 10 students in Starlight College. The young genius who was about to be promoted to Saint, flipped upside down several times in a row, and barely stood firm. He felt the terrifying heat coming from the sword in his hand, and he could no longer hold it firmly, so he let go. When it fell to the ground, the blade of the sword had actually melted and changed its shape!
Chen Rui, who had already walked far away, called out. A small red figure flew back to his head and chirped a few times like a demonstration of prowess. Only then everyone discovered that it was actually the little red bird that shot the flames at Quinn.
Although they were shocked, there were many aggressive ones among these students. They were about to rush to besiege when they heard a trembling shout, “Don’t move!”
It was Turiave who blocked in front of Andrew. His body was soaked in cold sweat, and blood was oozing from his nostrils and ears. The mirror-like thick yellow light on Turiave’s body shattered suddenly like fragile glass falling on a stone slab. Turiave’s sturdy body shook as he spat out a mouthful of blood.
The students were shocked. Turiave is the defensive instructor of the college who has stepped into the real Saint. His unique earth mirror barrier can resist the joint attacks of several Saint powerhouses at the same time. Yet, he was defeated in a blow!
“Peak stage of Saint…” Turiave managed to utter 4 words from the gap between his teeth before he vomited a mouthful of blood and fainted.
The students were shocked. The man who did not look eye-catching is actually standing at the highest stage of power in the world…
If the other party really wants to kill us, except for Philly who is an elf, I’m afraid that no one can survive. Many people had expressions of rejoicing after escaping death and fear. Only Landbis had been staring at the distant figure. Her beautiful mirror-like eyes flashed in splendor.
“Richard, your bird is amazing!” Michelle didn’t know Chen Rui made a move just now. She only saw Duoduo sprayed flame at Quinn. Her big eyes staring at the little phoenix couldn’t help but brighten.
“Can you call her Duoduo?”
“Is Duoduo not your bird? Let me touch it please…” Chen Rui slapped his forehead speechlessly, “By the way, Michelle, I will stay in the Silver Moon Celestial Capital for a while, but my diplomatic mission is finished. I don’t want to go back to the Green House again. Is there a quiet place where I won’t be disturbed?”
“A quiet place without disturbance?” Michelle thought for a while, and she looked at Blanche on the side, “Only the place where she lives is the quietest…”
Chen Rui turned his head and looked at Blanche. Blanche was taken aback and shook her head immediately, “No, my place…”
“Will it disturb Miss? Then forget it.”
“Not at all.” Blanche explained. She bit her lip lightly and finally made up her mind, “If you don’t mind it…”
After sending Michelle back to the palace, Chen Rui then followed Blanche to her residence. He then understood why she said ‘mind’. Not only because this was a barren forest far away from the celestial capital and it was a dilapidated tree house, but because it was actually a cemetery.
“You live in a place like this?” Chen Rui frowned, even if there was no ghastly cemetery. The environment here was indeed too shabby which was completely contrary to the exquisite style in the Silver Moon Celestial Capital.
“It’s already considered good to have this kind of accommodation.” Blanche’s face became more indifferent, “For a half-elf.”
The vast majority of elves believe that half-elf was the shame of the elf tribe and discriminate against them. When the elf tribe signed an alliance agreement with the Blue Glory Empire, the object of asylum even deliberately excluded half-elf. Although half-elves were more easily accepted by humans, they did not receive the protection they deserved. As a result, many half-elves became playthings of noble families or powerhouses and could not escape for life.
They encountered unimaginable things outside, and rejection and discrimination inside. As a half-elf of mixed blood carrying an unimaginably heavy destiny, Blanche was quite lucky to be able to stay in the Jade Forest Sea and become good friends with Princess Michelle.
“In the cemetery of half-elves, the tombs were all half-elves’ remains, and there is my father’s cemetery. Michelle should have told you, he fell into the Nightmare Volcano while looking for the springwater of the Fountain of Vitality in the Nightmare Wilderness, and his corpse is nowhere to be found.” A trace of sadness flashed past Blanche’s indifferent eyes, “The elf tribe called this place the cursed Dead Silence Land. I suggest you go to the celestial capital.”
“It’s very quiet here which is suitable for my meditation. If you don’t mind, I’ll bother you for a few days.”
“Meditation?” Blanche showed a knowing expression and nodded, “Well, if you don’t mind the simplicity of the treehouse, just stay in that treehouse for a few days. I will guard under the tree in return for helping me and White Wind in the forest sea.”
The beloved figure guarding his tent at Mountain Xilang back then appeared in his mind. It warmed his heart and he shook his head, “No, it’s not that I don’t trust you, but that I don’t have the habit of mistreating my friends, especially a lady.”
This was the second time Blanche had heard the word friend. The indifference in her eyes seemed to fade a little, “It’s okay, I’m used to sleeping out.”
These simple words revealed the hardships experienced by the half-elf. Compared with the elf of the celestial capital, the life of a half-elf was like the shadow of the beautiful moonlight.
Chen Rui thought for a while and nodded, “Okay.”
For Blanche, accepting good intentions could make her feel the friendship more than refusing. There was no need for excessive politeness between friends.
No doubt, the ‘1-eyed’ half-elf brightened up after hearing this sentence, and a slight smile appeared which actually looked very moving- It’s a pity that the damn blindfold made this kind of attractiveness greatly discounted.
Soon, the half-elf discovered that the tent Chen Rui lent her was actually a luxurious magic room, and her simple treehouse couldn’t be compared with it.
Blanche had a touch of emotion. She didn’t say anything about exchanging, but she just sat quietly under the tree, guarding the human who entered meditation. He was the third friend in her life besides Michelle and White Wind.
Chen Rui entered the refinery of the Super System. In the refinery, he was able to comprehend and experiment in a 1:100 rule, so he could seize the time to digest the knowledge that he gained today.
However, shortly afterward, this quiet place which rarely had visitors, ushered in an uninvited guest.
The beautiful assistant teacher of the Starlight College, Landbis.
Landbis’s beauty was top-notch even among the elf tribe. Her visit to the Jade Forest Sea this time attracted the attention of many male elves including some noble families. This smoothed her journey to the forest sea all the way until she met Chen Rui.
The beauty of Landbis naturally had no effect on Blanche. Even affected by Michelle, she also expressed considerable hostility and refused to allow her to pass.
Landbis breached the half-elf’s ‘line of defense’ in just 1 sentence.
“I came to Richard for an important thing that might affect his life’s fate. If you are qualified to give up for him, then I’ll turn around and leave. I won’t bother him again.”
After Blanche was silent for a while, Landbis met Chen Rui.
“Ms. Landbis, you took a lot of effort to find this place. I don’t like to beat around the bushes. Did you come to apologize or warn me because of the Purple Forest incident?”
“No.” Landbis shook her head with an elegant and charming smile, “Landbis. Sherbert of the Blue Glory Empire greets Sir Richard.”
Chen Rui raised his brows and narrowed his eyes slightly. It is actually her! Landbis. Sherbert, the daughter of the Blue Glory Empire’s Klongter, the only princess of the Blue Glory Empire to hold the title. For Chen Rui, she also had the most special identity – The official fiancee of ‘Arthur’!
TL: Landbis discovers his identity? How? He is completely different from the Arthur she knew right?
