The Purple Heart Treehouse in the Jade Forest Sea.
3 friends of different races sat at the table, tasting the beautiful wine while discussing – 3 grand masters.
“Haha! I didn’t expect that I, the forest hobbit Bernd, will witness such a miracle with my own eyes in this lifetime!” The braid on the old hobbit’s beard shook with excitement.
“Unbelievable talent, unbelievable human!” Even the unhurried elf grand master showed undisguised excitement.
After Chen Rui realized the true meaning of alchemy, he successively produced 2 black potions, True Spirit Potion and Eternal Power, which marked that he had entered the ranks of potion grand master, and it was second only to the highest level of great grand master. Not only that, he then created 3 more exquisite equipment, almost blinding the eyes of the 2 grand masters.
The true alchemy duo-specialized grand master!
Once a field was mastered, it opened up to other fields. Although the promotion of pharmaceutics was a bit unexpected, this breakthrough was not accidental, but the result of accumulation.
This included the 2 grand masters and a quasi-grand master that gave him detailed guidance, valuable information from the ancient alchemy civilization, memory effects of [Deep Analysis], and a lot of time — According to the research time in Super System, Chen Rui spent at least hundreds of years on alchemy.
The accident of success was actually the inevitability of countless accumulations.
“No words can express my gratitude to you 2 grand masters.” Chen Rui raised the wine glass, “Nothing, my friends.”
The old hobbit and elf looked at each other and smiled knowingly. The 3 glasses cheered.
“What do you plan to do next?” Finoia took a sip of wine slowly, and his chopsticks stretched toward a piece of bamboo shoots, but before reaching the goal, the whole plate was snatched by the old hobbit.
“What else?! Of course going to the human world and taking the name of the top alchemy grand master!” The old hobbit chewed as he said vaguely, “You well-deserved this 1st place. The forest hobbit feels honored to have such a friend, haha!”
“I’m sorry that I will let down your expectations, my friend.” Chen Rui shook his head, “This kind of superficial name doesn’t make any sense to me. I have more important things to complete. When this meal is over, I will leave. If I have time, I will definitely come to the Forest Sea to reunite with both of you.”
“There is no permanent banquet; there is no reunion without separation.” The elf grand master did not ask him to stay. In his long life, there was too much gathering and separation, so he appeared calm, “Good luck, friend.”
The hobbit grand master was also an open-minded person. He grinned, “Don’t forget to bring wine next time.”
In the evening, Chen Rui left the Purple Forest; he did not immediately activate [Time and Space Gate] to leave. Instead, he went to a place in the Jade Forest Sea, the cemetery where the half-elf lived.
Compared with the luxury and exquisiteness of the Silver Moon Celestial Capital, this place was the dark shadow that was out of reach of the sunlight; the cursed dead silence land: the cemetery of the half-elf.
Chen Rui came here to meet Blanche, which was the promise he made to the half-elf girl last time.
He still remembered the taciturn half-elf girl who always guarded the scene under the tree house with Duoduo during the closed training days.
There was no unnecessary talk or laughter, only silent giving.
The weird thing was that he did not see Blanche in the simple tree house in the wild forest. It stood to reason that the half-elf girl would definitely not go to other places at this time. What made Chen Rui puzzled was that from the condition of the tree house, it should have been unoccupied for a long time.
I gave Blanche a bottle of spring water from the Fountain of Vitality last time to heal the elf tribe’s sacred Tree of Nature. So did Blanche make great contributions and move to the Silver Moon Celestial Capital after she gave the springwater of the Fountain of Vitality?
He was about to leave when he suddenly found a white figure in front of him. It was a snow-white horse with a single horn on its head.
This unicorn is very familiar. Right, it is White Wind who is closest to the half-elf girl!
White Wind looked around, seeming to be waiting for someone. It suddenly felt something strange behind its back. When it turned its head and saw the figure of a man, it was about to launch an attack in horror, but there was already a familiar voice in its mind, “White Wind!”
The unicorn was taken aback for a moment, then it remembered who the voice was. The lightning lingering on the horn suddenly faded as it came to Chen Rui’s side and nudged it flatteringly. Chen Rui stroked its mane and took out 2 aura fruits. The unicorn neighed happily and opened its mouth to quickly munch the aura fruits in Chen Rui’s palm.
Chen Rui sensed that the strength of White Wind had increased a lot from the previous time. It should be the effect of aura fruit. It had broken through from the Demon King level to the Great Demon King.
“White Wind, where’s Blanche?”
The name ‘Blanche’ made White Wind pause. The unicorn’s language ability was not very strong, so it was unable to express the specific meaning clearly, but Chen Rui clearly sensed the anxiety and uneasiness in its mind. He couldn’t help but feel shocked and had a bad omen.
At this moment, a crisp voice came from a distance, “White Wind! Where are you?”
The unicorn raised its neck and pushed Chen Rui a little. Chen Rui recognized that it was the voice of the little elf Princess Michelle. With a shift of mind, he followed the unicorn to the source of the sound.
“White Wind, it turns out that you are here.” The little elf princess was carrying a small basket. She was shocked when she spotted the man next to the unicorn, “You, you… Are you Richard?”
“Michelle, it’s been a long time.” When Chen Rui just said a sentence, the little elf princess dropped the basket in her hand and threw herself into his arms. She started crying out loud.
This sudden intimacy made Chen Rui a little perplexed, but he heard Michelle cry, “Duoduo, Duoduo is gone…”
The little elf princess witnessed the ‘death’ of the little phoenix, so she had been sad for a long time, especially after Teacher Finoia explained to her why Chen Rui deliberately attacked her last time.
Now that Michelle saw ‘Richard’, she couldn’t help feeling sad again. The name of the little phoenix made Chen Rui’s heart twitch as he stroked Michelle’s head lightly.
After the little elf princess cried for a while, she blushed and let go of her hand, feeling that this action was a bit too intimate. She suddenly remembered something and started crying again, “Blanche! Richard, go save Blanche!”
Chen Rui was shocked, “What happened to Blanche?”
“She went to the Nightmare Wilderness and has been missing for 2 months!”
It turned out that after Chen Rui killed Isyorul and left the forest sea, Blanche gave the Fountain of Vitality gift from Chen Rui to the Elf Empress Liv. This was a huge surprise for Empress Liv a huge surprise. The holy Tree of Nature of the elf tribe had a magical strength which could provide shelter and promote the proliferation of the elf tribe. However, it had gradually withered due to unknown reasons over the past tens of thousands of years. Only the Fountain of Vitality could cure it, and Blanche actually found the springwater of the Fountain of Vitality!
The effect of the spring water of the Fountain of Vitality was no doubt extraordinary. The Tree of Nature had begun to grow new shoots. With the huge contribution made by Blanche, it was enough to change the situation of discrimination and unfair treatment previously to obtain a truly comfortable place to stay in the Silver Moon Celestial Capital. However, the half-elf insisted on leaving the Jade Forest Sea, and she never came back.
Only Michelle knew that Blanche left because of Chen Rui. During the battle between Chen Rui and Isyorul, he was once on the brink of collapse before activating the [Pole Star Transformation]. Blanche desperately tried to undo the seal of her blood eye to fight against Isyorul, but she was knocked out by Empress Liv. Blanche did not see the scene of Chen Rui fighting against Isyorul, but she learned of Duoduo’s ‘death’ afterward. This incident was a great blow to the half-elf girl. She attributed all the responsibility to herself, feeling shameless to face Chen Rui again, so she chose to leave.
The place she was going was the place where her father died – The Nightmare Wilderness.
Blanche’s father was also a half-elf. In order to allow himself and his daughter to be recognized by the elf tribe and prevent his wife from being wronged, he did not hesitate to venture to the Nightmare Wilderness to find the legendary springwater of Fountain of Vitality in order to save the Tree of Nature, but unfortunately, he fell into the Nightmare Volcano and died without leaving a corpse.
Blanche came to this extremely dangerous place not only because of guilt, but also for one of the most important purposes, which was training. Although the Nightmare Wilderness was dangerous, it was also the best place for training in actual combat.
Only by becoming stronger could she truly protect the person she wanted to protect. She would never allow Duoduo’s tragedy to repeat itself.
When Blanche first arrived at Nightmare Wilderness, she still had magic communication contact with Michelle from time to time. About 2 months ago, the half-elf suddenly lost contact, and there was still no news.
Blanche was one of Chen Rui’s only friends in the Jade Forest Sea. Although they didn’t spend a long time together, Chen Rui could faintly feel that the half-elf girl who seldom talked had emotions beyond friendship for him after he calmed down the power of the abyss in Blanche’s left eye that night.
The Nightmare Wilderness was one of the most dangerous places in the human world like the Storm Island. The geographical location was extremely remote, and it already belonged to the edge of the human world. The area was extremely wide and the climate environment was harsh.
There used to be the most powerful orcs emperor empire in history there. However, no matter how strong their power was, it could not resist the law of erosion as well as the rise and fall of time. The orcs empire eventually declined and split into several tribes. A considerable part of these tribes had survived so far, becoming the main forces of the Nightmare Wilderness. The survivors of the orcs were strong and competitive. They fought each other all day long, and they repelled outsiders even more. This was a chaotic place with almost no order at all; only a big fist was the only truth.
Even if one avoided these unreasonable orcs, the many brutal and powerful demonic beasts in the Nightmare Wilderness were enough to become a real nightmare for mercenaries and merchants.
Blanche was only Demon King-level strength, that was, just the early stage of the Master level. She actually entered such a dangerous place alone. In any case, Chen Rui couldn’t leave her be.
“Relax, Michelle.” Chen Rui stroked the soft hair of the little elf princess, “I will definitely bring Blanche back safely.”
TL: Seems like Blanche is very likely to join the cult for more power, hmm…
