In the morning, Blanche opened her eyes and found herself sleeping in the magic tent, covered with a comfortable blanket.
The half-elf girl vaguely remembered that when she was playing a tune last night, her forbidden left eye suddenly triggered. Later… she couldn’t remember clearly what happened. The only clearest feeling was a very warm embrace that had been long-lost.
Blanche glanced at the human who was making a fire and cooking outside the magic tent. For some reason, she suddenly felt that her heartbeat was a little fast. This strange feeling was unprecedented, not only for this human, but also for other men.
Chen Rui was sitting outside with a pot in front of him while the little phoenix Duoduo was fluttering on the side. Duoduo looked particularly restless today. Her chirping was full of anxiety.
In the [Analytical Eyes], the little phoenix’s voice was crying.
“Don’t leave Duoduo!”
“Duoduo wants to go together!”
“Duoduo hates daddy!”
Chen Rui grabbed the little phoenix lightly, stroked her head in his arms, and sighed, “Dad also can’t bear to part with Duoduo, but the current strength of dad is not enough to take Duoduo away. Dad swears by my life that I will definitely come to pick Duoduo back. At that time, Duoduo will see several mothers and live a happy life together, okay?”
Chen Rui really wanted to take Duoduo back to the Demon Realm, but unfortunately, he really couldn’t go through the [Star Gate] with the little phoenix. The little phoenix would be rejected and stay in place. This was confirmed before he came to the Jade Forest Sea.
The little phoenix had a deep attachment to Chen Rui; Chen Rui also truly regarded Duoduo as a family. Because of this, he had been afraid of her being sad previously and did not tell her that he was about to leave.
However, the 1 million required to teleport to the Demon Realm would be gathered this afternoon. The [Light Annihilation Seal] in Isabella’s body might kill her at any time and must not be delayed, so today should be his last day in the human world. He must leave.
He was not sure if the next level of evolution of the Super System would allow him to carry a complete life entity across space. In any case, when he returns to the human world next time, he must try to take the little phoenix back home.
No matter what he said, the little phoenix kept crying non-stop. She jumped on his left arm and pecked desperately with great strength which hurt Chen Rui. The little phoenix was knocked away by the automatic defensive power in his body, but she cried and rushed forward to peck again. Chen Rui sighed. He retracted all the defensive power to let Duoduo peck his arm till it bled. He could only comfort her.
At this time. Blanche walked out of the tent and was surprised to see this scene, “What happened to Duoduo?”
The half-elf was not Michelle. If the little elf princess was there, the question ‘what’s wrong with your bird’ would definitely shock all sentient beings again. Chen Rui lovingly looked at the little phoenix who was still leaving blood marks on his arm, “She is sad because she is about to part with me. The place I’m going to is very special. I can’t take her with me for the time being… So, before I come here next time, I would like to ask you to take care of Duoduo for me, okay?”
Blanche was stunned. Her eyes lit up suddenly, and she nodded vigorously. She knew very well the relationship between Duoduo and Chen Rui. Leaving Duoduo in her care was not only a kind of trust, but it also meant that this human man would definitely come back to the Jade Forest Sea and appear before her in the future. I don’t know at that time if he will…
The half-elf blushed and didn’t dare to think about it. She suddenly felt not used to her face and realized that her blindfold had disappeared. She was taken aback and hurriedly searched for cover. At this moment, a hand passed over a pair of glasses.
“This is a pair of magic glasses that I made at the last minute which can change the color of your pupils. They can also confine some of the abnormal changes in your left eye. If you drop a drop of blood on it now, then no one can take it off except yourself.” The human’s gentle voice sounded, “This should be my first work after comprehending a certain knowledge, if you don’t mind being a guinea pig.”
The half-elf bit her lip lightly, took the glasses and dripped a drop of blood on them. The glasses suddenly glowed with a dark golden light as if they were part of her body. After putting them on, she felt an unprecedented coolness and comfort in her brain, especially in the left eye. The cozy feeling replaced the original faint burning feeling just like the warm embrace in that memory.
A faint mist rose from the glasses, making the half-elf’s sharp sight blurred while the hazy figure in her heart became clear.
“It looks suitable.” Chen Rui smiled slightly. To be honest, the moment the half-elf threw away the blindfold and put on the glasses, it gave him an amazing feeling. She was also a beauty with glasses. Zola looked mature and moving while the half-elf girl was a delicate girl. If she wears a student outfit with a book…
Soon, Chen Rui got rid of the distracting thoughts from his mind. He pointed to her eyes and asked, “I want to take the liberty to ask if your father ever had some kind of abnormality? Have you heard of anything about your grandparents?
Blanche shook her head, “My father is just an ordinary half-elf. The only special thing is that both his pupils are red, but there is no such forbidden power as mine. Her Majesty Empress once said that my grandfather is an elf, but Her Majesty has never mentioned my grandmother.”
Chen Rui nodded. In Blanche’s left eye, it should be the power of the Abyss Family, and it is very powerful. Fortunately, it has not fully awakened yet. Her father didn’t have the ‘forbidden power’, it could be that the bloodline power has skipped a generation. In this way, the Abyss Family has not only appeared in the Demon Realm, but they also have their traces in the human world. In any case, Blanche is innocent. Now that I helped her seal the bloodline power of her left eye in advance, it shouldn’t happen again if there are no accidents in the future.
Chen Rui did not talk about this issue anymore. He handed over a space ring, “I should have given you this space ring yesterday, but I forgot it. Please accept it. There is a Fountain of Vitality and fire crystals in it which Duoduo usually consumes. Please take care of Duoduo in the future.”
The half-elf girl knew what a space ring was. Almost every elf had 1. Only she, a half-elf, couldn’t have it. Now, she finally had 1. However, this also signified the upcoming separation.
Blanche suddenly asked knowingly, “You will come back, right?”
Chen Rui nodded, “I will definitely be back.”
“I’ll wait for you.” The half-elf girl said 4 words softly.
The bright and firm eyes behind the glasses made Chen Rui’s heart tremble slightly. He dared not look directly as he sighed secretly.
Duoduo’s small beak had already stopped pecking earlier. She flew to his head feebly to rest. While Chen Rui talked with Blanche, he did not notice his arm was pecked with a strange blood mark. Under the special physique attribute, it soon disappeared.
A few hours later, Duoduo finally flew to the half-elf girl’s shoulder aggrievedly. Chen Rui was actually very reluctant to bear this cute ‘daughter’, but he showed a smile on his face. It was time to leave.
Chen Rui’s departure did not disturb too many people. In addition to Blanche and Duoduo, there were also Finoia and his apprentice, Bernd as well as Michelle. Surprisingly, Landbis was also there.
Although the past few days were not a long time, Chen Rui and the 2 grand masters had a very harmonious relationship. He put forward many constructive opinions especially in the design of the blueprint which made them confidants.
The old hobbit said unabashedly, “Don’t let Finoia and I wait too long. Remember to get more aromatic millet wine next time!”
Chen Rui smiled and nodded, and patted Michelle’s head. The girl’s big eyes were a little teary. The last time Chen Rui stood up for her in the Purple Forest, the girl already regarded this human as a trustworthy friend in her heart.
Taranna lowered the arrogant head of the elf tribe and bowed respectfully to the human. He completely surrendered to Chen Rui today. He was even more grateful for those selfless instructions. Chen Rui bowed back. Landbis’s voice sounded, “Take care, Richard, I wish you good luck, I hope… we can really become friends in the future.”
“Teacher Landbis, I also wish you good luck, and hope your ideals will come true soon.” Although Landbis’ scheming and acting were very purposeful, in any case, she was not wrong from her perspective. The magnificent palace was actually a big whirlpool. In front of power, any feelings sometimes appear fragile. If she was too naive, perhaps she would have been swallowed by the whirlpool. Taking destiny into one’s own hands was also Chen Rui’s long-standing faith. Perhaps it would be difficult for him to have an intersection with this fiancee in the future. However, this blessing was sincere.
At this moment, the blue sky above was suddenly stained with a fiery red color. A certain intangible enchantment force began to violently distort. Then, as if some kind of glass was shattered, countless light beams were projected down and shrouded this area.
Everyone was taken aback, especially Finoia and Taranna. They knew exactly what was ‘shattered’ just now – The defensive enchantment of the elf tribe! This was just the outer suburbs of the Silver Moon Celestial Capital where the power of enchantment was relatively weak, but the enchantment collapsed in an instant. Even if it was just such a small piece of sky, the strength it represented was quite terrifying.
There was a trace of green in the fiery red sky and the projected beam of light dimmed a lot. A deep voice sounded, “Isyorul? How dare you ignore the Demi-God contract and attack the Jade Forest Sea without authorization! Does the Light Divinity Temple wants to provoke a war?”
Isyorul? Chen Rui was shocked. This guy actually made a move himself, and it is at this time!
Fortunately, the elf tribe also had a super powerhouse who was temporarily in negotiations to buy him precious time.
Chen Rui used the [Analytical Eyes] immediately to instruct Blanche to take Duoduo to escape from this place. With a thought, a blue light door flashing like stars appeared in front of him.
The faith crystal had a little more to 1 million, but he could use the [Star Gate] to escape to the nearest star point, Venus City in the Starlight Empire! As long as I escape from here, Isyorul’s last [Divine Spying] will fail!
TL: Will Isyhorul let him go just like that?
