Raizen finally retracted his gaze at Chen Rui and slowly nodded. From his eyes, he could see that this Aguile’ was definitely not boasting, but he was truly sure.
Of course, Chen Rui was sure. Not to mention anything else, the light element curse… with the Snow Dallet Flower, it is really easy peasy. This time, even the longevity potion does not need to be exposed.
After this interlude, Raizen’s negotiating attitude had obviously eased a bit. This matter was not only related to his life, but also related to the fate of the Bloody Empire as a whole. Judging from the current strength, if he hadn’t been in the empire, the Bloody Empire was likely to face the danger of being destroyed by the Dark Shadow Empire and the Fallen Angel Empire.
Raizen was not good at eloquence. Teris next to him was in charge of ‘bargaining’ for the Bloody Empire. Teris’ eloquence and ability to negotiate were indeed outstanding, but what the Bloody Empire required was not a peaceful covenant, but a temporary armistice agreement, and the conditions were very harsh, making it difficult for the 3 parties to reach a consensus for a while.
However, it was a good start that the 3 empires deescalated from using the army to sitting down and talking. The key was that Chen Rui was confident to cure Raizen. Although there was no result, the prospect of the whole negotiation seemed bright.
After the fruitless morning ended, the 2 parties agreed to continue the negotiation on the second day. The fierce verbal battle and the uncompromising contention were comparable to the battlefield filled with smoke. The stalemate continued until the third day where they finally began to break the ice.
“The Fallen Angel Empire currently masters a series of technologies such as battle ball, magic television, aromatic millet wine, soil improvement, and so on. These must be shared by the Bloody Empire, and the same is true for the new things that emerged during the armistice.” Teris’ condition was almost exactly the same as Catherine previously. They obviously attached great importance to these technologies. Although this young prince was very good at ‘copycat’ culture, ‘copycat’ was not omnipotent as some ‘high-tech’ technical links couldn’t be solved.
Take the battle ball as an example. The venue and competition rules were easy to plagiarize, but the production technology of the ball couldn’t be imitated. The flexibility and durability of the local battle ball produced by the Bloody Empire were far inferior to that of the original version by the Fallen Angel Empire. The ball often exploded after being kicked in the game while the balls ‘imported’ from the Fallen Angel Empire would not.
“Battle ball can be considered, but we will not provide technology for magic television, aromatic millet wine and soil improvement crystal. We will only provide limited quantities of finished products.” Chen Rui immediately rejected Teris’ proposal. Teris’s negotiation skills were very smart. Chen Rui had suffered several losses throughout the confrontation in these few days, but Shea was still very accurate in grasping the general direction. Generally speaking, the progress of the negotiation was fairly smooth.
“Then let’s make a compromise. The Fallen Angel Empire provides the technology of aromatic millet wine. As for soil improvement, we can follow the example of the cooperation between your empire and the Dark Shadow Empire to proceed in batches.” Teris did not wait for Chen Rui to answer and changed the topic abruptly, “By the way, isn’t the Fallen Angel Empire hosting the Demon Realm’s potioneer contest next year? Why not let all 3 empires organize it? It will be a major event in the Demon Realm. The Fallen Angel Capital can hold a 3-empire joint trade fair a month before the contest.”
“I think His Highness Teris’ proposal for a joint contest and trade fair is very good.” Catherine said, and Teris lowered his head with a smile to express his gratitude. “Not only the potioneer contest, even the mechanic contest can be included to become the alchemist contest that is divided into 2 levels- alchemist and alchemist master. The 3 capitals can take turns to hold it once every few years.
This will not only improve the Demon Realm’s alchemy level through exchanges and competitions, but it also strongly promotes economic development. “
“I agree with Your Majesty Catherine’s proposal.” Shea agreed, “The first alchemy contest will be held in the Fallen Angel Empire. It will be organized together with the potioneer contest which is originally scheduled 7 months later. The 3 empires’ Alchemist Association can jointly release the contest notice.”
Chen Rui thought of the betting agreement with Saman and nodded slightly.
Teris added, “It’s not just alchemy, but also the battle ball. The battle ball league of the Demon Realm’s 3 empires. During the truce, this will become another form of war – a war that everyone welcomes.”
This proposal made Shea and Catherine nod at the same time. Raizen, who liked battle ball, also nodded slightly.
Teris changed his tone and turned back to the previous topic, “Since the 3 Royal Majesty agree, then the Fallen Angel Empire should provide magic television related technology so that more people can participate in this competition.”
“Alright, we can provide magic television related technology, but I have a requirement that the 2 empires must not ban the broadcast of the Fallen Angel Empire’s television programs. Of course, the Fallen Angel Empire will not ban the 2 empire’s programs. There are also some television programs that we spend a lot of money on, such as the previous concert. These programs are now played for free. In order to recover the cost, we will selectively charge in the future, This fee cannot be discounted neither for the Dark Shadow Empire nor the Bloody Empire.”
Teris thought for a while. As long as I mastered the technology of magic television, my empire could also host and broadcast similar programs in the future. Therefore, he agreed. Catherine also had similar ideas as Teris, but she always felt that Chen Rui’s request might have other objectives, but now it was a major issue related to the peace talk, plus there were no pitfalls in this request, so she agreed.
The 2 sides reached more and more consensus, and the peace talk gradually went smoothly. While listening, the recorder behind speedily recorded and sorted the conditions for the final agreement to be signed.
At this moment, a servant came to Teris’ side and whispered a report. Teris bowed to the 3 rulers, “Please excuse me.”
Teris went out for a moment, then he hurried into the hall again and whispered in Raizen’s ear.
Raizen’s facial expression changed, and he glared at Shea and Catherine as a terrifying coercion surged at them. Chen Rui stepped forward and blocked in front of Shea, “Your Majesty Raizen, what do you mean?!”
Raizen said coldly, “I should ask you this sentence!”
Catherine had an ominous omen and asked, “What actually happened?”
Teris spoke up, “Just now I received a report from General Gustav saying that he found that a powerful magic enchantment was set up nearby. Part of it has been triggered. Now everything here has been completely isolated from the outside world!”
“Powerful magic enchantment?” Chen Rui didn’t expect this kind of incident to happen, “What is going on?”
Teris sneered, “General Gustav wanted to break through the magic enchantment, and he was seriously injured by recoil only when he touched it. Except for the Fallen Angel Empire’s powerful magician who defeated more than 30 Demon Overlords, I can’t imagine anyone else who can do this! If you really want a truce or even peace, how can you set up this kind of enchantment?! Obviously, you want to kill my father and I, then annex the Bloody Empire all at once!”
Raizen stood up slowly without speaking as his body was already surging with a powerful strength wave. The hall was instantly filled with rich malicious intent.
“Raizen! Don’t be fooled!” Catherine shouted, “If we really want to join forces to deal with you, why would we bring these few people now?! Do you think just a few of us can kill you?”
Shea also spoke up, “Town Nimbus has always been occupied by the Bloody Empire Army during this period. Even this negotiation room is your choice!”
“You did this deliberately because you wouldn’t choose to fight head-on! If it weren’t seen through by General Gustav earlier, there must be a lot of schemes!” Teris shouted, “Father, just in case, let’s leave here first!”
The whole ground shook as if there was a big explosion. Everyone was unstable as the room was filled with exclamations and shouting.
The voice quickly weakened and actually disappeared in the end, showing a strange tranquility.
Chen Rui was taken aback. In the negotiation of the 3 empires’ rulers, such a thing would actually happen! It is definitely not Catherine and Shea, so is it Raizen’s own planning?
As Raizen yelled, the entire hall was torn apart. Countless broken tiles shot out in all directions and shattered without a trace. The smoke dissipated. Apart from the initial few people in the hall, there was actually no living person nearby.
Surrounded by the strange breath of coldness, the weaker secretary and several guards trembled as their bodies quickly became stiff, and they fell to the ground in an instant as if their vitality had been devoured by the intangible power.
Liliz, who was next to Catherine, was just the strength of the Demon Emperor. Even though the power of Nirvana could restrain this kind of breath, she couldn’t help showing an uncomfortable expression.
A prompt of ‘unknown energy invasion’ appeared in Chen Rui’s consciousness. He immediately activated the Super System to absorb that energy. At the same time, he held Shea’s hand and passed the power to help her alleviate the strange erosion force.
Teris shuddered as he seemed to be resisting the cold air. All of a sudden, he spat out a mouthful of blood, and said anxiously, “Father, I don’t know what ambush they have! You leave first!”
“Damn it!” Raizen guarded Teris behind his back. He launched a punch with purple light at Catherine across the distance.
The [Immortal Dark Gold War Puppet] appeared in front of Catherine, blocked the punch, and she shouted, “Raizen, don’t you understand? We are all being set up! I feel that the power here is very strange. Let’s leave here together first!”
Raizen thought for a while, and he finally nodded.
Suddenly, everyone’s body was wrapped in a black electric spark.
Catherine and Raizen reacted fastest, showing the power of Nirvana and surging bloody energy to block the lightning. However, this black lightning seemed to have an irresistible corrosive force, and it carried a peculiar law power. Both of them looked strenuous, and their complexion changed at the same time.
Even the 2 kingdom-level powerhouses were like this, not to mention the others were even worse. Liliz couldn’t bear it as she slowly fell to the ground while her body was shivering; Teris also tremblingly leaned on a broken pillar with a pale facial expression. He revealed an extremely painstaking expression.
Chen Rui’s defensive shield was quickly eroded and shattered. Although the power that invaded his body could be absorbed by the Super System, the external pressure couldn’t be absorbed.
“There is actually a breath of faith…” Chen Rui frowned. At this time, the [Analytical Eyes] suddenly experienced a data change which shocked him as he shouted, “Teris! It’s actually you!”
Prior to this, Teris’ strength has always been S- in the [Analytical Eyes], and there was no bracket that represented hidden strength. He unexpectedly became S++!
Race: Mammon Royal Family.
Comprehensive Strength Assessment: S++(S-)
Physique: S++(S-), Strength: S++(S-), Spirit: S++(S-), Speed: S++(S-)
[Analysis]: Dark attribute, unknown.
Degree of danger: High.
This climb from S- to S++ should not be a real increase in strength, but a buff under certain conditions, just like the Pope Vantis whom Chen Rui encountered at the Holy Light Mountain. The ‘unknown’ in the analysis was also confusing.
Teris’ S++ strength was completely inconsistent with the painful appearance he showed at this time. Chen Rui could sense that that faint breath of faith was released from Teris!
Speaking of the sensing of faith power, even Raizen and Catherine, who had just advanced to the kingdom level, couldn’t compare with Chen Rui, so he immediately shouted it out.
Teris was taken aback. Looking at Chen Rui’s keen gaze, he suddenly smiled. He slowly stood up straight as the black electric spark on his body disappeared, and a faint majesty appeared in his eyes, which was completely different from the usual elegance, “Good eyesight. I didn’t expect that it would be you, not Catherine, who sees through me first.”
Catherine and Raizen were shocked at the same time. Just as they were about to make a move, the lightning strength suddenly increased dozens of times, so the 2 couldn’t move for a while. Even the [Immortal Dark Gold War Puppet] was imprisoned by a special power.
“Unfortunately, it’s too late.” Teris shook his head, “Raizen, Catherine, actually you 2 surprised me. Catherine actually completed the fifth Nirvana, and Raizen is even more remarkable. You actually forcibly broke through to the kingdom level in Dark Furnace which I did some tricks to it. Unfortunately, you are all going to die today because I don’t need your submission; I only need destruction.”
“Teris!” Raizen showed a disbelief gaze. It turns out that the trap that I suffered in the Dark Furnace was actually planned by this youngest son! In this way, other things…···
“Raizen, you guessed it.” Teris seemed to see through Raizen’s thoughts, “I planned the dispute between Edmund and Aleus, and I personally killed Aleus. The fact that you came out of training surprised me, so I arranged something in the Town Nimbus long ago, and I always wanted to lead you here. What made me even more surprised was that in addition to you, the big fish, this net also caught 2 other fishes. In fact, what I am doing is very risky, but if 3 empires can really restore peace, then my years of painstaking efforts will be in vain, so I made a move. Fortunately, I succeeded. As long as I kill all of you, the following matters will be much easier; I can easily unify the Demon Realm.”
“Just you alone?” Catherine said, “Don’t say whether the ambush you set up can kill us, even if it can be done, do you think you can really unify the 3 empires?”
“A person’s strength is limited, so I have been managing it for 300 years.” Teris smiled confidently, “I forgot to tell you that I have another identity which is the master of ‘the Bloodfall.”
TL: Faith power? Is he the Demon God himself? No wonder Teris seems so lofty all the while…
