The Iron Fist Estate was brightly lit. For the demons, the nightlife was just getting started.
The night market had now become an indispensable facility in the Demon Realm’s estates and towns, and it was also an important source of tax revenue.
As one of the major estates of the Bloody Empire, the Iron Fist Estate was the first estate in which the deceased Young Prince Teris carried out a pilot ‘copycat’ night market. A large-scale night market was established in 2 major areas of the city.
In the eastern district night market, a group of beautiful women appeared. It became a beautiful scenery line that caught the people’s eyes.
More than a dozen beauties accompanied by only 2 men immediately attracted ignorant guys to come forward to flirt with them, but the next moment, they were ‘being’ turned into meteors and disappeared into the sky.
Immediately, someone recognized that the petite short-haired person who kept flirting with the beauties was actually the super powerhouse Lalaria who defeated the Bloody Empire Lord Raizen!
This discovery frightened the people with bad intentions – Even Raizen the Great was knocked down with a punch. My flesh is not enough for others to even stick between their teeth.
Not only that, Zola, the beautiful magician who had an affair with the Fallen Angel Empire’s prince consort, was also on the list. There was also Paglio who failed in the quarterfinals, Dodo the strange onion, as well as Roman and Olypheus who entered the quarterfinals before.
Even without Lalaria, this lineup was quite scary. For a while, no one dared to come up to chat with them.
“Alice, Adeline, come and try this. This is the specialty yoyo fruit of the Iron Fist Estate. Eat it and burp. You will feel a special coolness coming out of your ears, and your whole body seems to be floating.” Athena visited the Iron Fist Estate several times in the early years with her father and Red Dragon Mom. Although there was no night market at that time, she was no stranger to the specialties here.
“Really?” Alice shoved a yoyo fruit into her mouth, “Adeline, try it too.”
“En.” The naga girl took the fruit from Alice and showed a jubilant smile. Although sometimes I miss my sister, family, and… mother, it’s so nice to stay by that person’s side and be with these friends.
“Isabella, you were amazing just now. You cut the price of 12 black crystal coins to 1 black crystal coin just now!” The little succubus maid’s face was full of admiration. If it was her, cutting a third of the price was already the limit.
“Of course, my sister is the best!” Ms. Black Dragon said with a smile while playing with the red coral earrings that Isabella gave her, “Lalaria, when will you pay me?”
The mustached flat-chested loli, who was attentive in front of Ms. Fairy Dragon suddenly froze, “Wait for me to win the championship. I’m broke now. Don’t worry. Didn’t I give you an IOU? I’ll win everything back later and give you twice as much property!”
“Lalaria, you are such a good person!” Ms. Black Dragon held the mustached loli’s hand, trying to increase her good impression in her mind, “By the way, words alone cannot be taken as evidence. Let’s write the extra double into another IOU.”
The mustached loli, “…”
“Wow! It’s really a strange feeling like drinking wine secretly for the first time. Sister, try it…” This time it was Alice who called ‘sister’. The feeling of yoyo fruit was indeed very special. The little loli was swaying and almost fell. She was held by another veiled blond woman beside her.
Hearing ‘drinking wine secretly’, the blond woman pinched the little loli’s face lightly, and there was a touch of tenderness in her purple eyes. No one could have imagined that the veiled beauty beside the prince consort was the original match, 1 of the 3 rulers, Shea. Lucifer.
This was clearly bringing the harem to the night market.
“Roman, try this red robe.”
“Medilu, blue color suits Roman.”
“I think red is fine.”
“Roman, tell them yourself. What color do you wear?” This time it was the smiling Madam Aunt who rubbed it in.
“…” Student Nephew, who was in a dilemma for a long time, finally chose a red and blue robe, but that style could be described with the word ‘vulgar’. It gave Master Poison Dragon a good laugh.
“Fortunately, leader isn’t here.” Roman wiped a sweat. Sir Uncle’s means were more ruthless than Madam Aunt.
“That kind of loser may be on the way to meet a woman privately.” The little mermaid princess was still vicious.
In fact, Helen said it right this time. The person whom Chen Rui met alone was indeed a woman.
“Your Majesty Shea, as well as that Ms. Zola and Lord Athena, and so on… Are they at ease to let you come out alone?” The woman asked indifferently.
Chen Rui, who had changed his face, smiled slightly, “It’s like you are at ease facing me alone.”
The black eyes behind the veil remained serene, “So, did you come with a certain will of that Royal Majesty? Or your will has already represented everything?”
“My will…” Chen Rui scratched his head, “According to your usual understanding, it should include foolishness, ignorance and so on.”
“People change.” Catherine shook her head slowly, “Especially the environment and time can change a lot of things. You can use ‘involuntarily’ to explain it.”
“I admit that I’ve changed a lot.” Chen Rui stared into her eyes, “But there are some things that flow in our blood and breath. Even in the face of death, they won’t dim or fade away.”
Catherine looked away, “That’s what Gustav said when he was fighting with Raizen, so you’re also proficient in lip reading.”
“Why don’t you ask what will not change?”
“Aggressiveness is not the demeanor of an imperial prince consort.” Catherine changed the subject calmly. She suddenly stood up and bowed, “I asked to meet Your Highness today to ask a few questions.”
Chen Rui was startled, then he smiled bitterly, “I dare not accept this kind of etiquette. You can just ask.”
“You can definitely accept it.” Catherine sighed, “2 years ago, the entire Demon Realm thought that the Fallen Angel Empire was forced to sacrifice their interests in exchange for a short-term peace, but no one could have imagined that that was the beginning of the declaration of war of the Fallen Angel Empire. Your currency war has taught me, Raizen, and everyone a lesson. This should be just the beginning, what else will follow?”
“If you compare it to a financial turmoil, this is really just the beginning.” Chen Rui nodded, “If my plan can be implemented smoothly, causing the butterfly effect to expand further, the worst result is that the entire economy will collapse. …”
Catherine listened to him introduce some common knowledge of the financial crisis, and her facial expression changed suddenly, “First hit the Dark Shadow Empire and the Bloody Empire with the currency war, then use the military parade to show a powerful military strength to deter the 2 empires, now participating in the martial battle championship to show personal strength… Raizen and I were really wrong. We shouldn’t have given you 2 years.”
Chen Rui shook his head, “It’s too early to tell who is right and who is wrong.”
“It’s still early? Do we still have to wait until your army conquers the 2 empires?” Catherine’s voice had a bit of self-deprecation, “You may be able to win the final victory, but even if only 1 person remained in the Dark Shadow Empire, we will never yield. That was the case with Midnight Sun back then, and it will be the same now and in the future.”
Since it is impossible to hold your hand side by side, then face to face with a sharp blade in hand as an enemy.
“The era of Midnight Sun is over.” Chen Rui stood up slowly while laughing, “It’s fine as long as I can achieve the goal of destroying the Demon Realm. Think about it, no matter who wins or loses, the 3 empires’ military power and economy will be greatly damaged. We may not be able to recover for hundreds of years, and we will not be able to compete with the human world at all.”
Catherine was shocked, “Is this your real purpose?”
“Of course,” Chen Rui suddenly showed a strange smile, “Unless Your Majesty Empress is willing to sacrifice yourself…”
“I don’t know whether to appreciate or hate this way of framing the issue. Well, I already understand the bad consequences of launching a war.” Catherine gave Chen Rui a deep look, “But I really can’t understand your intentions. Do you want to integrate the strength of the Demon Realm and crusade the enemies of the human world?”
“If smart people think too much, they will complicate simple problems.” Chen Rui pointed to her head, “There is no doubt that you are a smart person.”
“Hmph!” Catherine glared at him in dissatisfaction, “Your so-called simplification is believing in the cooperation program you proposed 2 years ago?”
“Why not?” Chen Rui shrugged casually, but there was seriousness in his gaze.
Catherine pondered for a long time before she stood up and walked toward the door, “Perhaps, there is one last multiple-choice question between us.”
“Wait till you can beat Lalaria first…The final is when everything is revealed. Whether… the end or the beginning, I don’t know.”
Chen Rui was startled. Judging from Catherine’s tone, she actually wants to make an ultimate decision with me in the finals. Not to mention others, Catherine must first defeat Red Pipit at the peak stage of the Kingdom level!
Catherine paused for a while, then she strode out without looking back.
A slender figure appeared in the crowd. This lovely and fair-skinned young little loli. She looked no more than 3 years old. Her black hair was slightly curly with 2 lovely horn braids, and she looked delicate and beautiful. Her big black eyes seemed to be able to talk, giving the first impression of ‘super cute’.
The young little loli was wearing a small skirt, holding a huge plush pig head toy as she looked around for someone.
Her clothes and the texture of the toy seemed to be expensive, but there were no adults beside her. This quickly attracted the attention of thoughtful people.
“Little girl, Uncle Lu will take you to see the goldfish, okay?” The fatty, who looked like an immoral person, grabbed the young little loli with a wretched smile on his face.
The young little loli seemed to have the sensing power to danger. She immediately showed a vigilant expression, and her black hair slowly began to turn red.
“Bang!” The fatty’s wretched smiling face suddenly twisted and dented in the shape of a shoe print. The fat body instantly flew out, hitting the wall in the distance and leaving a human-shaped dent behind.
The one who kicked the fatty was a heroic and beautiful woman with short red hair. She also habitually carried a greatsword behind her back.
The young little loli looked at the red-haired woman with equal vigilance, and suddenly blinked her big eyes. She put one arm around the pig’s head, stretched out the other hand, and said in a childish voice, “Aunty, huggies.”
The red-haired woman was stunned for a moment before she hugged the young little loli. As the young little loli hugged her neck, she immediately felt relaxed as she felt a kind of reassuring breath become clearer. Then, a voice sounded, “Athena! What are you doing?”
“Huh?” Ms. Black Dragon rushed over first, “Athena, who is this?”
“I don’t know either.” Athena stroked the young little loli’s hair, “Little girl, what’s your name? Where’s your daddy and mommy?”
“Duoduo is looking for daddy…” The young little loli looked aggrieved and hugged Athena’s neck tightly.
“Duoduo? The name is very nice.” Athena felt that the name was a little familiar like she had heard it in Chen Rui’s human world story a few years ago, but she didn’t think much about it. She hugged the young little loli, “Aunty look for your daddy with you, okay?”
“Aunty is so nice.” The young little loli kissed Athena’s face.
“And here.” Ms. Black Dragon put her face up cheerfully, but the young little loli didn’t buy it.
Ms. Black Dragon did not feel dejected, She shouted joyfully, “Sister! Come quickly, Athena found a Duoduo!”
Soon, the cute young little loli was surrounded by the harem.
Soon, the cuteness of the young little loli conquered the harem.
The strange thing was that Duoduo was very close to Athena, Isabella, Kia and even Shea and Zola, but she was more wary of others. The most obvious was Lalaria, who just came over and wanted to hug her, but Ms. Duoduo’s crying threw the mustached flat-chested loli into the air.
Even the 10-year-old dragon loli from the fan club was also listed as a must cry by Ms. Duoduo.
“It doesn’t make sense!” For this reason, Lalaria deliberately tore off her mustache and tried her best to show an amiable smile, but it remained the same.
All the girls wanted to help Duoduo find her parents, but Ms. Duoduo only knew that daddy was called daddy and mommy was called mommy. She didn’t know anything about the rest.
“Duoduo! Where are you?” An anxious voice sounded from a distance. Athena and the others felt familiar with the sound.
The young little loli was being hugged by Zola and seemed to want to break free, but unfortunately, she didn’t have the strength. Soon, the girls found the owner of the voice.
No doubt she was an acquaintance: Liliz, the female officer of the Dark Shadow Empire.
“This is your daughter?” Athena was stunned: By the way, I seem to have heard the news of Liliz and Terdila getting married, but the 2 have been married for less than a year. Could it be that she got pregnant and then got married?
Liliz hesitated for a moment before she nodded.
Here the young little loli had already started to cry, “I don’t know Aunt Liliz, I want to look for daddy!”
“I’m sorry for bothering everyone this time.” Liliz didn’t want to stay any longer. She hugged Duoduo, bowed deeply, and said goodbye with Terdila who came later.
After watching Duoduo disappear with reluctance, Athena realized that the pig head toy was still in her hands. She touched it lovingly as if she was stroking the cute little girl.
“Why, reluctant to let her go?” Delia saw through her friend’s thoughts, “Just work hard and have one yourself.”
Athena blushed; only to hear Kia say curiously, “Isn’t Duoduo’s daddy Terdila?”
Alice’s eyes widened, “Is Terdila the legendary… tauren?”
Poor Terdila, inexplicably became tauren.
“Who is Duoduo’s daddy?”
“Hmph! It must be some irresponsible man who left after impregnating others! If I meet this kind of guy, I must cut the tools of crime, then beat him up to the point of bedridden!” Lala Loli’s words resonated with the girls for the first time.
“Achoo!” A certain irresponsible man was about to rush to the night market to meet the girls when he suddenly sneezed and felt an inexplicable chill.
