A day later, Chen Rui led the envoy team back to the Fallen Angel Empire.
Dark Elemental King Hegel had long left without bidding farewell while the original purpose of Octopus King Red Pipit was to go around the Demon Realm. After all, he was imprisoned in the black sea area for so many years that he was so bored. However, he did not help much on this trip. Instead, he suffered a small injury in that strange place on the 4th floor of the Book Collection Hall, so he felt embarrassed. In addition, he miserably lost in the Fate Showdown, so he bid farewell to Chen Rui halfway.
In general, Octopus King was still a worthy friend. After Chen Rui’s invitation for him to stay was turned down, Chen Rui made an appointment to meet him again at the alchemist master contest of the Fallen Angel Capital half a year later. Then, he left after bidding farewell.
This time the Bloody Empire’s mission was more eventful than expected, but the result was better than expected. He not only cured Raizen, but also got the promise of a strategic alliance within 2 years. The distribution network of the magic game was fully rolled out in the Bloody Empire, and the progress was even greater than that of the Dark Shadow Empire. Even if Catherine intended to obstruct it, under the background of the 3 empires’ peace agreement, the Dark Shadow Empire couldn’t stop this trend that had spread to more than half of the Demon Realm.
Especially after the Fallen Angel Empire’s Mechanic Association released a ranking list, the craze for magic games had reached a new height.
This ranking was divided into an overall ranking list and regional ranking list. It included level ranking, overall points ranking, class combat power ranking, top kill, fastest kill and other rankings.
These lists were all the pseudonyms of the players in the game. Of course, many players used their real names. However, there was no such thing as name and portrait rights in the Demon Realm. They would not cause a commotion when they were listed. Instead, they were proud of it. Every month, the people on the list would get rewards with different levels from the Mechanic Association. The most popular was the ranking list that would automatically be cleared every month. Points could be used to redeem game equipment, items, materials, and so on. They could also be exchanged for a certain amount of magic crystal coin in reality.
The mode of earning real profits in virtual games had made the popularity of magic games soar to another level. Magic game television towers had been set up everywhere, and the successive out-of-sales of magic television and magic game helmet had brought huge income to the 3 empires. However, in Chen Rui’s plan, even if it was a loss without income, this promotion was quite worth it because compared with the future, the current income could only be regarded as a drizzle in the beginning.
At the same time, those players who chose the ‘puppet pilot’, a special profession in the game, had also entered the sight of the empire’s Secret Intelligence Department. The best of these players would be within the ‘recruitment’ range of the pilot for the empire’s future assemble puppets. Whether it was quality or quantity, it was much better than traditional conscription training.
After Chen Rui, the initiator of all this, returned to the Dark Moon Estate, he stayed behind closed doors most of the time to study the Evil Moon Sigil in his body.
Sariel did not deceive him. The Eye of Evil power contained in the Evil Moon Sigil was no doubt extraordinary. Chen Rui only extracted a part of it to integrate into his body now, and his vision had been greatly enhanced. He could also exude a spirit deterrence similar to dragon demeanor from his eyes.
Zola’s eyes brightened when he heard the news of the second silver box. However, the success rate of getting this silver box from the Pseudo-God powerhouse was almost zero.
Chen Rui asked about the secret of the silver box again. Zola hesitated for a while, but she still insisted on not telling him. It was not because Ms. Fairy Dragon was selfish. She did not keep any secrets from Chen Rui by now. It was just that the secret of the silver box involved the strength related to god. Even if one reached the kingdomized level and became a super powerhouse, one might not be able to touch it.
However, for a learner, this secret possessed irresistible appeal. Even Ms. Fairy Dragon herself could only use the secret technique to forcibly seal a part of her thoughts to avoid being tempted and distracted in training. Moreover, [6 Elements Kingdom] was also a training method with a very high risk factor. Therefore, she didn’t want Chen Rui to fall into such trouble. At the moment, focusing on strength was the most important thing; it was best to reach Demi-God or Pseudo-God before studying it.
Chen Rui did not continue to question when he realized Zola’s good intentions. He kissed Ms. Fairy Dragon and took out a gift. The memory crystal contained the essence of the ancient runes. Every time the memory crystal was read, the imprint of the memory would be indifferent, which meant that when the number of reads reached a certain limit, it would fragment and disappear. However, Chen Rui had the secret weapon of [Deep Analysis]. After only reading it once, he copied the massive amount of data into his memory to be slowly digested and absorbed in the future. Zola could still use it at least hundreds of times.
For the Ms. Valley Master of the Rainbow Valley, knowledge was more precious than black crystal coins (Of course, black crystal coins were also very important), so this memory crystal was undoubtedly the best gift. She hugged and swung Chen Rui around a few times. Uh… Later, in order to protect the dignity of the man, Sir Deputy Valley Master ‘retaliated’ by hugging Ms. Valley Master and rolling all the way onto the bed.
The date of marriage with Shea was approaching day by day. Someone who cultivated behind closed doors and occasionally used his body to comfort a few wives did not know that a ‘conspiracy’ against him was unfolding. To be precise, it was against ‘Aguile’.
“Olypheus, do you understand?”
“Um…” Ms. Black Dragon was chewing on a few skewers of grilled squid in her hand.
“Don’t pretend to be dumb!” Alice curled her lips, “Otherwise, I won’t treat you to eat the next barbecue meatballs, yellow braised chicken wings, 3 fresh hot pot, tofu, yuba broth…”
Just hearing these names made Ms. Black Dragon’s mouth water, and she nodded quickly, “I understand, isn’t it just helping you deal with that brother-in-law?”
“What brother-in-law, that despicable guy deceived my sister by dealing with Obsidian! I hate that guy a lot! I want him to suffer a big embarrassment at the wedding! Not only at the wedding, but also at the concert before the wedding! Ah… by the way, ask him out to prank him first; take it as… ‘rehearsal! You must help me!”
“This…” Ms. Black Dragon was a little worried. She was good at taking money without doing things, damaging the public fund for private use, embezzling and fake reimbursements and so on, but Alice was a good friend, so it was not so righteous to do it to her. The most important thing was that she had taken rewards without fulfilling the task for many times. If she kept making empty promises, she would lose a free meal ticket in the future. The problem was that the person Alice had to deal with was the boss who paid her salary – Both sides had benefits, and the little chick was reluctant to let go of either.
By the way, I seem to have promised the boss that I cannot reveal Aguile’s identity to Alice, otherwise he will have to deduct my salary and benefits for the whole year…
This is not easy…
Just as Ms. Black Dragon was in a dilemma, Alice used the biggest lure, “The Princess Villa VIP building’s free meal coupon for 1 month! Special offer of 50 premium aromatic millet wine coupons! Princess Retail Store Jewelry Carnival’s gold crystal gift voucher!”
“Deal!” Ms. Black Dragon held the little loli’s hand with tears – Mother said that if there is any cheap bargain, I must go for it.
Boss, it’s not that our side is weak, but the enemy is too cunning!
The next day Chen Rui, who was summoned by Shea, came to the capital palace through the Rainbow Valley’s teleportation portal.
“Sir Aguile, are you busy lately? For a man who is about to become an empire’s prince consort, shouldn’t you take the last moments to enjoy your life of indulgence, lest there be no chance in the future?” There were no outsiders here. Shea’s intent to be playful appeared in the purple eyes.
Chen Rui shrugged, “Your Majesty Charming Empress, should I feel sad or honored?”
“Honored. Undoubtedly.” Shea replied affirmatively, “Is our bridesmaid ready? There will be a highly anticipated concert before the wedding. I look forward to her performance very much.”
Her Majesty Empress, who used to talk non-stop about the political affairs, is now talking non-stop about the crystal harem. Perhaps this is woman nature? Chen Rui could only laugh bitterly.
In fact, Ms. Bridesmaid had an original saying: If Her Majesty Empress said that she’s looking forward to my performance, then I’m also looking forward to her performance on my man’s bed.
The lethality of this sentence is too great, and there is also a knockdown attribute. Considering the stability of the crystal harem, it must not be relayed. But speaking of it, the hooligan… Uh, the charm of Madam Aunt is enough to beat Her Majesty Empress, and only the little charming girl Kia can match it.
Seeing Chen Rui’s bitter smile, Shea didn’t continue questioning. He took out an envelope, “This is an invitation letter sent by Alice to me, saying that she wants to perform at the concert. In the afternoon, she invites ‘Aguile’ to the countryside to have a tour and also rehearse once.”
“Alice? Invite me?” Chen Rui took the invitation letter. As he reminisced about the trip with the little loli at the Dark Moon back to them, there was a warmth in his heart, but this time the person Alice invited was actually ‘Aguile’ whom she despised?
The blackhearted little loli must have no good intentions.
“How long do you want to hide from Alice?” Shea sighed, “Actually, Alice has always liked you very much since the Dark Moon.”
“You misunderstood, Shea, I also like Alice, but…”
“But a younger sister-liking?” Shea shook her head, “Alice doesn’t just like you, plus she is no longer a child. If she knew that her sister’s wedding partner was her favorite man, she would definitely be very sad.”
“Well, issues are inevitable in growing up. I can’t just reciprocate just because someone likes me.” Chen Rui sighed. A younger sister fiancee, Olypheus, is already troublesome. Adding another one will add to the chaos.
Shea stared into his eyes, “Of course others can’t, even if you want to! But… Alice is my sister. From childhood to adulthood, I will give her whatever thing she wants.”
Well, the legendary benefits of having both sisters is what an otaku dreams of.
Wait, whatever thing?
“Since this is the case… I shall change the marriage of the original Prince Consort Aguile to become Princess Alice’s husband.”
Chen Rui was shocked by Shea’s words, then he burst into tears: It turns out that it is not the legendary benefits of having both sisters, but sending the husband off!
Wait, change the marriage?
Seeing the bitter face of Royal Highness Prince Consort, Her Majesty Empress finally showed a moving smile, “Well, no matter what, you must make Alice happy on this trip. Otherwise, I will reveal Aguile’s true identity to our Royal Highness Little Princess. Don’t forget, your 3-year promise with her is almost up.”
The last sentence made Chen Rui feel like a trance as if he had returned to the time when he made a pinky promise with the little girl.
3 years, so fast…
TL: What is Alice’s plan though? The stun stick again?
