The outer suburbs of the capital, Mountain Misty Leaf.
The location of Mountain Misty Leaf was relatively remote, but the scenery was quite good. The special plant was a blue leaf that would exude a fragrant mist. This was the origin of the Mountain Misty Leaf’s name.
Alice invited ‘Aguile’ to visit the Mountain Misty Leaf. The entourage of Royal Highness Little Princess, in addition to the 2 Demon Emperor lamp spirits guards, also included her good friend Olypheus.
‘Aguile’ was still wearing the ‘standard’ costume of the mask and cloak. The 4 people rode the demonic beasts all the way to the Mountain Misty Leaf and chose a relatively flat field.
“Olypheus, you go to dig a stove. Sister Genie, Sister Genin, can you hunt for something nearby?” The little loli took out a large table cloth, spread it skillfully on the ground, and began to arrange the plates.
Genie and Genin responded and left.
“Aguile… Brother, can you help me pluck some Jade Dragonfruit and Violet Herb for barbecue?” The little loli came in front of Chen Rui and handed over a small basket with an irresistible and innocent smile.
Chen Rui suddenly thought of Alice’s angelic smile when he was abducted to the Aldas laboratory and met Alice for the first time. A knowing smile appeared behind the mask as he took the small basket, “Okay, Princess Alice.”
After Chen Rui left, Alice’s gaze changed suddenly. It was similar to the spooky face when one flashed the torch from below the face. She took out a small bag, “Olypheus, we should start! Hand me the basket, I want to put a powerful laxative into the berry juice! Hehe, when Aguile has diarrhea later, you can light up a fire next to him…”
“Huh?” Ms. Black Dragon scratched her head and secretly hid the empty bottle in her hand behind her.
The little loli had quickly set up the plates, “Quick, give me the berry juice, or the guy will be back in a while.”
Ms. Black Dragon asked with a guilty conscience, “Is it the bottle that tastes sweet and sour?”
“Huh?” The little loli reacted immediately with a bad feeling. She quickly grabbed the basket with a stride, opened it and looked dumbfounded, “Where is my berry juice? And the pudding with anesthetics? What about the Swelling Grass biscuits? All gone!”
“That…” Ms. Black Dragon said wryly, “That pudding seems to have a tingling taste, it tastes good.”
“How can you do this!” The ‘hard work’ that Alice carefully prepared for 2 days was eaten by Olypheus, so she cried out, “It’s just a short while of digging a stove, and you have eaten all the things I carefully prepared!”
“Because you said I could eat a big meal, so… I deliberately saved my stomach for lunch. I’m too hungry now…” Ms. Black Dragon said embarrassedly, and her stomach made a growling sound.
Seeing Alice’s teary eyes, Ms. Black Dragon said guiltily, “Alice, what about I give you 1 more barbecue… No, 2!”
“I don’t want to barbecue!” Alice suddenly thought of something and opened her teary eyes, “Have you not felt your body numb? Or is your belly bloated?”
“It’s okay, but the biscuits don’t feel bloated at all. I’m still hungry.” Ms. Black Dragon rubbed her stomach with an expression of dissatisfaction. When she saw Alice’s sadness, her eyes rolled, “Alice, don’t you know, bo… that Aguile is much more powerful than me. This thing won’t work for him. I have a type of medicine. I heard that it is a super tonic…”
“Tonic?” Alice was taken aback.
“No!” Ms. Black Dragon showed the rare wise gaze as she shook her fingers with confidence, “Paglio lied to me as a tonic, but judging from the performance of him and sister last time, it should be a problematic poison. Paglio and Zola fought a battle for this bottle of medicine, and Paglio was beaten severely.”
“Although I don’t understand it, it sounds terrific!” The little loli suddenly became energetic, and she didn’t even bother to wipe off her tears, “Where’s the bottle of medicine?”
“Look!” There was a bottle in Ms. Black Dragon’s hand with black solution inside.
“Why does the bottle look a bit like black pear juice?”
“It’s indeed a bottle of black pear juice, but it contains a very expensive and delicious poison!” Speaking of ‘delicious’, Ms. Black Dragon’s belly growled again.
“Very poisonous? Will it… poison Aguile to death?” The purpose of the little loli was to punish him, not to harm him. After all, that annoying guy is my sister’s prince consort, and my sister really doesn’t seem to be disgusted by him.
Ms. Black Dragon thought for a while. The last time Paglio asked me to serve it to boss, so it should not be deadly poisonous. If I get the boss to drink it this time, maybe I can still claim the previous reward!
Thinking of this, Ms. Black Dragon’s eyes glowed like black crystal coins which surpassed her appetite, “It won’t poison him to death, I can promise!”
“Okay! Just give it to Aguile then!” Alice raised her small fist.
“But this is a very expensive poison!” Ms. Black Dragon deliberately emphasized the word ‘very expensive’.
“Olypheus, are we friends?”
“2-month free meal vouchers for the Princess Villa VIP building! 100 premium aromatic millet wine vouchers! 2 Princess Retail Store Jewelry Carnival’s gold crystal gift vouchers!”
A second later, Alice successfully received the ‘very expensive and delicious poison’. At this time, a prompt cough sounded and Chen Rui’s figure appeared in the sight of the 2 ‘in time’.
“Princess Alice, this is Violet Herb and Jade Dragonfruit.”
“Brother Aguile, you are so fast!” Alice’s big eyes flashed with small stars, showing admiration, “I bought this bottle of black pear juice from the most famous Wawa Beverage Shop in the city. You must try it!”
Chen Rui took the bottle of ‘Men’s Tonic’, and he was speechless— Not to mention anything else. Just based on Chen Rui’s understanding of the little loli, he knew that the little stars just now was nothing but the little loli’s cover up for the 2 horns on her head and the small tail behind her. Besides, he hadn’t walked far just now and had been hiding nearby. As for Violet Herb and Jade Dragonfruit, there were ready-made stocks in the storage warehouse.
I remember that the poison dragon said that this bottle of ‘tonic’ has been destroyed by Ms. Black Dragon? It was actually secretly hidden again…
This thing is not the lowly anesthetic laxatives of the little loli. If I really drink it, something big would surely happen today. Luckily I was acutely vigilant.
“Brother Aguile, won’t you drink it?” The little loli’s eyes sparkled with hope.
“Someone dropped money there!”
Chen Rui pointed to the distance. As soon as he said it, Olypheus was already flying away speedily. The sound of Ms. Black Dragon’s sprinting caused Alice’s hair to fly. She couldn’t help but squint her eyes. When she opened her eyes, the bottle in Chen Rui’s hand was empty and the other hand closed the mask, “En… very tasty, thank you Princess Alice.”
Alice showed suspicion as she looked at the empty bottle.
“Ouch, my head hurts a bit.” Chen Rui then covered his chest, “My heart is also beginning to hurt. Could it be that there is nothing wrong with the recent training…”
“Really?” The strange thing is that instead of being happy, Alice showed a skeptical look. “An elder brother once said to me that after we explain a series of facts to people, most people will tell the possible result. They can connect this series of facts in their minds and get results through thinking. However, there are a few people, if you tell them the result, they can use their inner consciousness to infer what the various steps are to produce this result. This is called ‘retrospective reasoning’.”
Chen Rui was taken aback: I seemed to tell Alice about these when telling ‘Holmes’ to her, but I did not expect that she remembers it so clearly.
The little loli walked over slowly, and looked at Chen Rui with a scrutiny gaze. Her nose twitched again as if she was smelling something. Although from the standpoint of Alice’s height, she could only look up at him, Chen Rui had goosebumps in his heart. He actually had the illusion of being looked down at.
“Your hands are very clean.”
“Huh? Thank you for the compliment, Your Highness.”
“I mean, your nails do not have the remnants or smell of Violet Herb or Jade Dragonfruit, and there is not much dirt on your shoes. There are only a few grass stems. This means that you did not pick Jade Dragonfruit and Violet Herb just now, and you haven’t left this area. In other words, you’ve overheard the conversation between me and Olypheus nearby.” The little loli suddenly had a pipe in her hand, and she sipped it in his mouth like a great detective.
Chen Rui was already sweating. I’m witnessing the most terrifying reasoning once again!
“Then, you should know that there is a problem with the thing you just drank, so you used the method of dropping money to distract Olypheus away. When I couldn’t open my eyes, you quickly poured away the black pear juice. If I guess it right, you should pour it into the space item instead of on the ground for safety reasons.”
No way! She can even infer the fact I poured it into the storage space?
The little loli took the pipe and pointed it in the direction of Olypheus, “Then, you must be very familiar with Olypheus, or she is also very familiar with you. Your cuffs have a little burn mark, and there’s a strange smell. I only smelled this kind of smell in the Rainbow Valley laboratory of Teacher Zola. You should be doing some kind of magic experiment in the Rainbow Valley these 2 days. That kind of place is not accessible to ordinary people, so the relationship between you and Teacher Zola is pretty close. Your mask is very new. The edges are not smooth enough, and there are almost no scratches, indicating that your mask is not often worn or replaced, so you don’t wear a mask most of the time. The reason for wearing a mask is not to remain mysterious, but to conceal your true face. Perhaps… you are probably a person we know very well.”
Chen Rui was really sweating this time. It is far more terrifying than the guess years ago! I haven’t seen the little loli after a while, and she actually has such a powerful deduction ability!
“So…” the little loli put her hands on her waist with her fingertips curled up in a nice arc as she pointed at Chen Rui’s mask with a strong momentum, “Who, are, you?”
“Well, in fact, when I came out this time, I originally wanted to tell you the truth… I wanted to tell you a long time ago.” Chen Rui smiled bitterly, “I just didn’t expect…”
At this moment, Chen Rui had a warning sign in his heart; Ms. Black Dragon suddenly let out a low roar in the distance.
Chen Rui was taken aback. Olypheus’ black hair began to spike up with extremely fierce breath coming out of her body.
“Oh no!” Chen Rui understood immediately. The strange force in Ms. Black Dragon’s body is triggered! It is actually at this time!
Olypheus’ pupils had turned white, the diamond mark on her forehead glowed scorchingly, and her nails quickly extended to the length of half a foot. Her eyes fell on Alice and Chen Rui. With a roar, she appeared in front of them in an instant. She grabbed toward Alice immediately.
Alice was startled, but her strength was too weak, so she could only watch her irrational friend make this fatal blow to her.
With a loud shout, the little loli felt like she had fallen into a warm embrace. The scenery blurred for a while, and she had appeared in the distance.
“Don’t move. Stay here!” Chen Rui shouted and flew toward Olypheus.
Now Ms. Black Dragon was delirious and berserk as she attacked. The most important thing was that Isabella who could comfort her and the little mermaid princess who used singing to shorten her trigger period were not by her side. Chen Rui was afraid of hurting her and could only passively defend.
Genie and Genin had already returned with their preys. They were shocked when they saw this scene. Genie waved her hand, and the buff effects such as accelerating power immediately surged on Chen Rui’s body. However, the debuff effect launched by Genin did not have any effect on Ms. Black Dragon who had a magic immune physique.
“Both of you don’t come here! Protect Alice!”
“Yes! Master!” Genie and Genin came to Alice immediately.
“Sister Genie, Sister Genin, what did both of you… call him?”
Alice once went to the City of Stars to test the game, so she knew that the City of Stars was a relic of the ‘grand master inheritance’, where all alchemy creatures respected a person as master.
Genie and Genin looked at each other without answering.
Alice suddenly remembered the phrase ‘Alice’ felt very familiar just now, and suddenly an almost unbelievable result came up.
On the other hand, the battle between Chen Rui and Ms. Black Dragon had entered a climax. The battle of the peak stage of the Demon Overlords, especially when 1 party couldn’t hold the power, was quite amazing.
Chen Rui did not use powerful moves, but he used the strength of water to continuously divert Olypheus‘ berserk strength, but Olypheus’s strength after the trigger was close to S++, especially after integrating the Dragon Island artifact Imperial Demon Claw, her 2 claws were invincible. Even [Aura Blade] couldn’t cut it off. He was distracted for a moment and was clawed in the shoulder. There were 5 shocking bloodstains.
Chen Rui bore the pain as he grabbed Olypheus’ arm firmly. As they resisted each other, the ground nearby had a terrifying distortion. Even the protective enchantment jointly created by Genie and Genin was constantly shaking due to the powerful force field.
Chen Rui had an idea. He stared at Olypheus as his eyes channeled the newly comprehended power of the Eye Pupil.
Under the power of the Eye Pupil, Olypheus’s gaze was involuntarily attracted. As their eyes met each other, her white pupils slowly returned to black, and her mind became sober, “Boss…”
After just saying a word, she passed out. Chen Rui caught Ms. Black Dragon’s collapsed body and carried her up, then he secretly breathed a sigh of relief.
I didn’t expect that the Eye Pupil taught by Sariel can actually restrain Satan’s strange power. It seems that this is the best way to cancel Olypheus’ trigger. I will need to do more research in the future.
As soon as the battle was over, the little loli had already rushed over. She hugged him tightly as she burst into tears, “You liar brother!”
TL: Maybe he can even cancel the imprint after fully mastering the Evil Pupil?
