“I don’t believe it!”
After being continuously bloodbathed in the ‘Death Game’, Octopus King, who couldn’t believe it all, resolutely refused Chen Rui’s suggestion to change to another mode of competition. Under the evil gaze of the Dark Elemental King, he reluctantly chose to continue. This was undoubtedly the beginning of a nightmare.
The nightmare continued until they reached their destination, the Bloody Empire. Judging from the sluggish mental state of the Octopus King when he disembarked from the carriage, there was no doubt that he carried forward the spirit of friendship first and duel second, maintaining an all-loss record. In other words, he was abused so miserably that the Octopus King would probably shiver at the mention of the ‘Death Game’.
The same kind of sluggishness was the Dark Elemental King. After tricking the Octopus King a few times, His Highness finally couldn’t help but step into the pit himself and become the good brother of the Octopus King.
Chen Rui was no stranger to the Bloody Empire. In order to find the Fertile Yuan Soil needed by the Earth Elemental King, he passed the examination of the Bloody Empire’s Mechanic Association under the name of ‘Richard’. He first became Master Turia’s student, then he ‘betrayed’ him and became the disciple of the Demon Realm’s top mechanical master, Nate, for the purpose of the Book Collection Hall’s materials. After obtaining the information of the Mountain Seckred in the Book Collection Hall, Chen Rui saw through Nate’s vicious conspiracy attempting to use the evil devour ability. Therefore, he used tricks to expose Nate’s insidious face in front of all mechanics. In the end, Nate was imprisoned by Raizen while Chen Rui faked death to escape. Master Turia was now the chairman of the Mechanic Association.
By the way, Turia’s daughter… the innocent girl named Beluan seemed to be a little bit interested in ‘Richard’, but ‘Richard’ had already expressed an attitude of rejection at the time. More importantly, the male protagonist of this incident was already dead, so everything in the past had become a thing of the past. With the current situation at home, if he brought another girl back, the sky would surely fall. The previous farce was big enough to make him suffer a headache, and he didn’t want to repeat the same mistakes.
The envoy team received a grand welcome from the Bloody Empire. Chen Rui was a little surprised that Gustav, who had obviously colluded with Teris, was also among them. He was even the first general. It seems that he is not affected by Teris’ incident. What is Raizen planning exactly?
Raizen met with the envoy team of the Fallen Angel Empire in the palace hall. After the courteous etiquette, Raizen set his eyes on the Octopus King and the Dark Elemental King behind Chen Rui with a scorching light in his black eyes.
“These 2 are my friends, I invited them to treat Your Majesty.” As an envoy, it was not the same as bringing friends to visit relatives, so Chen Rui also categorized the Octopus King into the category of medical soldiers. In fact, the Octopus King, who was eager to win, had lost countless verbal promises to him on the way. He just nodded his head without objection when he heard this.
Raizen tilted his head to show courtesy to the Octopus King. His gaze toward the Dark Elemental King was a little sharper, “Sir’s breath seems familiar?”
“Of course it is familiar.” Hegel showed an uncanny smile on his face, “It’s not the first time I have seen you, but you didn’t see me back then. As for the location…”
“The Dark Furnace?” Raizen’s eyes narrowed as the cold light passed.
“Not bad.” Hegel didn’t look deterred at all.
“I’m surprised that you will openly appear in front of me.”
“Because I owe this guy a favor. I promised to do 1 thing for him; anything.” Hegel glanced at Chen Rui, “Although I think this kind of favor is not worthwhile for him, since he insisted, I came. “
“Besides him.” Raizen glanced at Chen Rui and pondered for a while before asking, “Who else have you promised?”
“A person who helped me regain strength, but he and I are clear now.” Hegel smiled calmly, “I believe you know who this person is better than me.”
“I believe that an Elemental King will not easily promise anyone.” Raizen’s breath converged, “Fulfill your promise. I don’t want to pursue other things for the time being.”
“You can pursue the responsibility anytime you want.” This time, the fatty Octopus King spoke up. He actually had no real relationship with the Dark Elemental King, but they were in the same camp now after all. As a powerhouse of the kingdom peak stage, naturally he would not sit back and watch his ‘comrade’ being threatened.
“Oh?” Raizen looked at the Octopus King with interest as the battle intent in his black eyes gradually rose, “Your strength is indeed powerful. I am not your match in terms of strength and physical state. There will be a Demon Realm martial battle in 2 years. I wonder if you have the guts to participate?”
“Guts? It’s hard to believe that this is a vocabulary spoken by a guy who has just entered the kingdom level.” The Octopus King sneered, revealing his sharp teeth. There seemed to spark in his gaze toward Raizen, “Well, your ignorant provocation succeeded in arousing my interest. After 2 years, I will let you know what is the real kingdom-level strength. However, when the time comes, you must be prepared for death.”
“Very well.” Raizen smiled, nodded, and looked at Chen Rui, “I want to compliment you. Your arrival is really a pleasant surprise, Sir Aguile.”
Chen Rui bowed slightly, “I’m glad Your Majesty can say that, so… please arrange a suitable place. I think we can start treatment.”
The dark element seal on Raizen’s body was the most original dark element strength. It had penetrated into his soul and he could barely suppress it with the Bloody Ring, but for the Dark Elemental King, it was just pulling out a dagger that he pierced into the opponent’s body. Soon, the dark element seal on Raizen’s body was dispelled.
Raizen, who had the dark element seal dispelled, seemed energetic. The next step was the light element seal. For the Demon Realm races who lived in dark elements, the power of the light element was the most troublesome and difficult strength to deal with, but For Chen Rui, it was a breeze because there were 3 Snow Dallet Trees in the Super System. This kind of faith treasure, which was ‘stolen’ from the Light Divinity Temple in order to heal Madam Aunt previously, played a huge unplanned role in advancing the peace of the Demon Realm this time.
The Snow Dallet Flower could greatly enhance the effect of the light element training and eliminate all light element curses. When used with related materials, there was a small chance to induce mutated light-element physique. Nonetheless, except for the dispelling light element curse, the rest of the functions should be useless for Raizen who had [Dark Mastery].
When Chen Rui took out the Snow Dallet’s flower, Raizen’s eyes showed an unconcealable shocked expression. It was by no means an ordinary surprise. It seemed like… it was not his first time he saw this kind of flower.
“It’s been 100 years. I didn’t expect to see the sacred flower again in my lifetime.” Raizen was silent for a moment, “I’m surprised that you can have this kind of thing. I believe you have seen my surprise. It reminds me of a person.”
“Don’t worry. I won’t ask you the origin of this flower. Everyone has their own secrets, even though… your secrets are incredible… You may leave this flower. There’s no need to interfere with the rest.” Raizen accepted the Snow Dallet and changed the topic, “Also, what’s the matter with the magic television signal towers? I always feel that there seems to be some uneasy factor in it.”
“This is just for entertainment just like magic television. Of course, the benefits it brings are also considerable.”
“Your so-called benefits should be more than the sales of magic television and magic helmet. Although the magic helmet cannot be manufactured for the time being, the open technology means that it is only a matter of time. Therefore, most of these benefits are actually lost. I dare to assert that you should have other means of revenue. Otherwise, how can you let the empires other than yourself benefit? Moreover, a thing that is easy for the whole people to indulge is likely to bring unpredictable consequences for the entire empire. I’m currently considering ordering a full empire boycott before the magic game has formed a scale and has enough influence power.”
Chen Rui frowned. With Raizen’s prestige, if he really wanted to order the entire empire to boycott the magic game and even influence the Dark Shadow Empire’s policy, perhaps his plan of getting the whole Demon Realm’s faith would really fail.
“Your Majesty is really over-concerned, but you guessed a point right. In fact, this game has follow-up benefits because the mystic crystal power strength of the magic helmet is limited. Once the power runs out, one can’t access the game. Now it’s a free trial period. In the future, one will need to charge the energy every once in a while to maintain access to the game. Of course, this part of the service is charged. This will be our real continuous revenue.”
Naturally, Chen Rui would not tell his faith plan. What he wanted to do was to mislead Raizen with monetary benefits, but this kind of charging method was indeed 1 of the plans. In fact, it was equivalent to ‘point card’ or ‘monthly subscription’ charging methods of the game. One thing for sure was that future games would definitely not only be single-player.
Raizen’s eyes lit up with a bizarre expression, “Good means! No wonder you have stated in the agreement that the 3 empires shall not prohibit each other’s television program-related content. Plus, in order to recover the cost of some of the programs, they will be charged selectively in the future, and the rest of the empire cannot be discounted. It turns out that you were prepared long ago. Almost everyone thinks that the Fallen Angel Empire has suffered a big loss with those terms, but now it seems that those of us who underestimate the Fallen Angel Empire are the ones that will really suffer a loss.”
“Your Majesty, don’t get me wrong. Benefits can coexist. Our model, including technology, can also be imitated by your empire. As long as you produce the corresponding equipment and games, you can naturally compete with us for this market share. According to the agreement, we also will not ban your empire’s ‘program’.
“You mean to follow you forever? Just like the rest of the things? This will only make the distance between us and you bigger and bigger. I believe Catherine understands this too.” Raizen took a deep look at Chen Rui, ” I really admire the people who designed this game idea. In another kind of battle, you undoubtedly have the upper hand. But you should not underestimate the strength of an empire. I can restrict it by many means… If you can promise me a request, not only will I not obstruct it, but I will also spare no effort to support the promotion and development of all new items of the Fallen Angel Empire. The consensus of the 2 empires is enough to form a big trend. Even if the remaining empire wants to resist, it is difficult to stop it. Of course, this time is within 2 years.”
Chen Rui thought for a while and asked, “What’s the request?”
“Go to the 4th floor Book Collection Hall of the Mechanic Association to help me bring out someone. I should have gone by myself, but I can’t do it in my current physical condition, so this matters needs your kingdom-level friend’s help.”
The highest mystery of the Bloody Empire’s Mechanic Association, the 4th floor of the Book Collection Hall? Chen Rui’s mind moved. Raizen went on to say, “Her name is Tiffany.”
