3 days passed unknowingly.
No doubt, Landbis did not look for Chen Rui again, he was also very relieved for the quietness. During these 3 days, Chen Rui went to the Purple Heart Treehouse twice. Every progress and understanding shocked Finoia and Bernd as if it was after several years of experiments and comprehension. The 2 grand masters naturally didn’t know that there was a special existence like the Super System; they just lamented that he was a ‘genius’.
Finoia’s apprentice, Taranna, had also benefited a lot. The elf master’s foundation was already very firm. After receiving the guidance from the human perspective that was completely different from his Teacher Finoia, he felt that the narrower and narrower road suddenly opened up. His arrogance toward this human had also become true respect.
Under the beautiful and peaceful moonlight, Blanche was lighting a fire and grilling food while Chen Rui was thinking about something; neither of them spoke. When Blanche handed over a roasted bamboo shoot, Chen Rui took it, took a bite, and praised, ” It tastes good!”
Although there was no shortage of food in the storage warehouse, this was Blanche’s kindness. Moreover, it was true that these vegetarian dishes were really delicious after her cooking.
Hearing his praise, Blanche’s 1 eye brightened, but it quickly dimmed again. She rarely asked, “Are you leaving tomorrow?”
In the past 3 days, the half-elf had said no more than 10 sentences to the human, but she had done more than 10 things for Chen Rui: Guarding, cleaning, finding food, taking care of Duoduo…
This was a girl who spoke with action, using a silent dedication to interpret the word ‘friendship’. Chen Rui didn’t say much thank you, but he only showed the trust and tacit understanding between friends.
“Yes.” Chen Rui nodded. In about a day’s time, the faith crystals will reach 1 million. At that time, I will be able to activate the [Star Gate] and return to the long-awaited Demon Realm.
Take the Snow Dallet back to Isabella.
“Oh.” The half-elf girl gave Ms. Duoduo 1 skewer for her to eat. She lowered her head to pick the mushrooms in the basket and asked casually, “Will you come to the Jade Forest Sea in the future?”
“Yes, but there should be very few opportunities…” Chen Rui was telling the truth. After returning to cure Isabella this time, he would come to the human world again after he had collected 2 million faith crystals in the future to obtain the light source power and the wind source power for Zola. He had very few friends in the human world. Although he didn’t know Blanche for a long time, he was definitely a real friend worth making. He would definitely come to the forest sea to visit her the next time he comes back.
However, after getting the 2 element source power… Maybe there will be no next time.
“En.” The half-elf girl’s head was lowered even more. The expression on her face was barely clear.
“This is for you.” Chen Rui handed over a bottle.
The half-elf girl looked at the transparent liquid in the bottle with some surprise, “What is this?”
“Fountain of Vitality, this magic bottle should be valid for 3 months.”
Blanche was shocked. This bottle is actually filled with the Fountain of Vitality that can save the Tree of Nature! The Tree of Nature was the holy tree of the elf tribe which was said to have miraculous power, but it had gradually withered over the past tens of thousands of years. Only the Fountain of Vitality could revive it. Blanche’s father did not hesitate to venture to the Nightmare Wilderness, searching for the legendary springwater of the Fountain of Vitality in order to be recognized by the elf tribe. However, he not only found nothing, but he also unfortunately fell into the volcano, leaving no corpse.
I didn’t expect this human to actually own the Fountain of Vitality. If he gives the springwater to the elf tribe, he will definitely get precious treasures or benefits, but he gives it to me directly!
“Michelle said that the elf empress should be considered as your aunty, who promised your mother to keep you in the forest sea before your mother died, but because of the prejudice of the elf tribe, she cannot give you more care. If you pass the springwater to the elf empress, you will make a great contribution to the elf tribe. In the future, you should not be discriminated against and unfairly treated by the elves. At least, the situation will be much better than the current situation.” Chen Rui looked serious as he said, “You must accept it if you treat me as a friend, but remember to hand it in after I leave. I don’t want to cause extra trouble.”
“En, I understand.” Blanche took the bottle tremblingly and put it in the basket. She didn’t say thank you, but she lowered her head and continued to skewer the mushrooms to prevent Chen Rui from seeing her red eyes. After tossing it several times, the mushrooms were finally skewered on the bamboo skewers and grilled on the fire.
The 2 were speechless at the moment. After the half-elf girl finished roasting the bamboo shoots and mushrooms, she made some vegetable soup and ate some by herself. Most of it was in the stomachs of Chen Rui and Duoduo.
“I’ll play a tune for you. This is the only memory my mother left for me.” The half-elf girl took out a green leaf and placed it on her lips. A crisp sound slowly played.
This was a lullaby of the elf tribe. The leaf didn’t seem to be an ordinary leaf, and the sound they made was somewhat similar to a flute. The sound was peaceful and elegant which made people feel at ease. Even the usually active little phoenix lightly closed her eyes.
Chen Rui could hear that the half-elf girl was really playing attentively. For the generous gift of the Fountain of Vitality, she didn’t have anything to give back. She could only play a song for her friend to express her gratitude.
Chen Rui closed his eyes lightly. This should be 1 of the most precious gifts he received in the human world.
At this moment, the sound of the music began to become a little weird. Finally, Chen Rui felt that something was wrong. He opened his eyes and saw that Blanche seemed to be trying her best to suppress an agonizing pain. Cold sweat was already coming out of her head, but she insisted on finishing this song.
The leaf in the half-elf girl’s hands fell to the ground. Her body trembled slightly, “No!”
Chen Rui hurriedly stepped forward and asked, “What’s happening to you?”
“Why now…” Blanche pressed her left eye tightly. Her nails scratched blood out of her forehead. She gritted her teeth, “Stop!”
Chen Rui suddenly recalled that Michelle had said that the reason for Blanche wearing the blindfold was not blindness, but because her left eye inherited her father’s bloodline and some kind of mutation occurred which possessed a cursed forbidden power. This kind of forbidden power would trigger at night from time to time, so under the strong request of the elf empress and Blanche herself, Michelle never dared to come to her residence at night. The last time Michelle brought Chen Rui to the Silver Moon Celestial Capital was at night; Michelle was also reprimanded by the elf empress for that.
“Richard! Get out of here! Hurry! I can’t control it!”
“I can help you! Let me take a look at your eyes!” Chen Rui wanted to help Blanche get rid of this so-called forbidden curse. He grabbed her hand that pinched her forehead and used the [Analytical Eyes] to tell Duoduo to fly back to the treehouse and not come out for now.
“No! Leave now!” The half-elf girl’s voice had a rare cry.
Suddenly, Chen Rui felt a terrifying destructive power surging out of her eyes. The blindfold actually burned. His hands were also shaken away. The bleeding red pupil was revealed. On 1 side was the dark blue pupil, and on the other side was the blood red pupil. They looked particularly strange.
With Blanche’s left eye as the center, traces of intense breath radiated out. This breath had far surpassed her own Demon King level strength, and even reached S level. The half-elf girl’s body began to radiate blood-colored flames, and the plants in the cemetery area began to wither and scorched quickly. A strange and powerful destructive power struck Chen Rui’s body directly and began to destroy everything rampantly, but the Super System quickly came into play, quickly offsetting and devouring this destructive power.
Chen Rui looked up and found that the moon had turned blood red. He was shocked and suddenly realized that the surrounding scenes had changed drastically.
In an instant, the moonlight, cemetery, and treehouse were all gone. It was all molten lava like a blood sea. The sight was distorted in the high temperature, and the air was full of suffocating heat.
This familiar scene shocked Chen Rui. He faintly heard the crying sound from the front, and he immediately shouted, “Blanche! Where are you?”
The crying sound was unclear. It was mostly covered by the bubbling sound of magma grunting. Chen Rui sensed that in this scene, his vitality actually had a tendency to be weakened gradually just like a game that kept losing HP. Even if no enemies appear, one would eventually die of losing HP.
Chen Rui’s mind moved, and a little blood color appeared in his eyes. His whole body seemed to be integrated into the world full of destructive breath. The corrosive force could no longer have an effect on his vitality. This was a new mystery in which he understood the 6-star evolution- He, the original body, could activate Shura’s power to a certain extent when Shura was not used as an avatar.
Many strange figures suddenly appeared in front. They were wearing golden-red armor while holding a long whip surrounded by flames and electric light, exuding a terrifying breath.
Chen Rui was shocked because he had seen this powerful and terrifying creature before somewhere. Blazing flame witch!
However, with Chen Rui’s strength now, he could see that these blazing flame witches were nothing but phantoms. The light in his eyes changed again, and the magic power from the mirage penetrated into space.
Gradually, the phantasms of the blazing flame witches disappeared, the color of the blood sea also dimmed a lot, and the line of sight began to become clear. A little girl was floating in the air ahead.
The little girl was about 3-4 years old with both blue and red pupils. Her appearance was delicate and cute, but it still vaguely resembled Blanche’s face. She was crying with strange flames all over her body.
“Mom, where are you?”
“Don’t leave Blanche.”
“Blanche is so scared…”
“Others bully me…”
“Blanche!” Chen Rui slowly flew forward, but Little Blanche seemed to be unable to see him. She was just crying.
“I will protect you, Blanche.” Chen Rui spread his hands, and a magical force gently wrapped Little Blanche.
Little Blanche seemed to hear something. Under the comfort of that kind of warm power, she gradually fell asleep. The surrounding blood sea scene quickly faded, and finally, the scene returned to the original cemetery under the moonlight.
Blanche laid in Chen Rui’s arms. The terrifying destructive power had disappeared without a trace. Her beautiful face had a serene expression with her eyes gently closed and her long eyelashes were slightly raised. She was asleep like that little girl in space.
TL: So, her father is one of the blazing flame witches? Is she somehow related to the Abyss Family?
