That night, Chen Rui did not return to the inn in the end. As for how ’deeply’ he discussed life with Her Majesty Empress, it was unknown.
Fortunately, after returning carefully the next day, perhaps because of the amulet, Ms. Duoduo, there was no storm as expected, and everything seemed calm. However, after returning to the Fallen Angel Empire and the Dark Moon, some girls occasionally put forward special hints of ‘send me back’, making someone feel ashamed. No doubt, there is competition everywhere.
After all, Catherine was the lord of an empire. Although she expressed her intentions to Chen Rui in front of the entire Demon Realm, the empire and the people still had an unshakable position in her mind. As far as the Demon Realm’s current situation was concerned, it was impossible to leave the empire behind to be with Chen Rui all day, but there was a complete tacit understanding between her and him. Even if they were separated by thousands of miles, the distance between their hearts was still only a few feet away.
It was exactly that sentence, ‘If love can last and stand the test of time, then there is no need to stay together everyday’.
Besides, with the [Star Gate], it was not difficult to meet in the future with just 1 star point.
In addition to the amiability and humility that Catherine showed last time, there was one more thing that made the harem troupe had a good impression on her, that was Ms. Duoduo. When Catherine returned to the Dark Shadow Empire this time, she did not take Little Duoduo with her, but entrusted her daughter to the harem troupe for the time being. Quoting her original words, “With so many moms to take care of Duoduo, she will definitely be happier and more blissful.”
Ms. Duoduo was now the harem troupe’s favorite child, and Duoduo’s attachment to Chen Rui was very strong. Catherine’s decision could be considered going with the flow, but when Duoduo parted with mommy, she still cried a lot, which made all the women present couldn’t hold back the tears.
Shea continued to preside the capital. Octopus King Red Pipit left while Chen Rui returned to the Dark Moon with his lover and friends. Life seemed to return to normal. However, Chen Rui’s identity had been different. He currently had many titles: the Fallen Angel Empire’s prince consort, the Dark Shadow Empire’s prince consort-to-be (not certified), the Bloody Empire’s future prince consort (not certified), great grand master, martial battle championship top powerhouse, etc., but the title he was most proud of was his daughter’s father.
At that time, Little Phoenix Duoduo actually ‘self-exploded’ in the hands of Isyorul. In fact, she used an innate Nirvana talent to seal her soul in the stigmata of Chen Rui’s left arm, but the price was a bit cruel, that was to completely destroy her body. The little phoenix had already had this plan before meeting Isyorul, and the stigmata on Chen Rui’s left arm was precisely pecked out by Duoduo.
If it could absorb enough fire element power, the stigmata could make the little phoenix accumulate Nirvana power and be reborn again. Of course, Nirvana also had a considerable risk. If it could not be reborn, it would be completely reduced to ashes.
Due to the limited expressive ability of the little phoenix at the time, Chen Rui did not know about it. After returning to the Demon Realm, he had a lingering relationship with Catherine by accident. The stigma of the little phoenix absorbed the most dangerous 5th [Flame of Nirvana] which was like a dose of the largest nutrient solution. This not only made Catherine safe and Nirvana succeed, but it also bred in Catherine, the most suitable maternal body, through sex. In the end, she was born safely in a human body.
The little phoenix, who combined the Nirvana power of the Asmodeus Royal Family, was no longer a pure fire phoenix, but mutated to become another kind of stronger phoenix. Therefore, the current Duoduo had 2 forms, the phoenix and the Asmodeus Royal Family. The purest and strongest Nirvana power flowed in her blood. She was still young now. Once she grew up, she would become an extremely powerful being.
The reason why Catherine’s strength had improved by leaps and bounds, and she could even activate [Fire Phoenix Transformation]. It was part of the power that Duoduo gave back to the maternal body when she was born.
Just as Chen Rui would never forget the little phoenix daughter after returning to the Demon Realm, although the little phoenix lost a lot of consciousness after the self-explosion and Nirvana resurrection, her memory of Chen Rui was always preserved. This kind of affection was touching. However, there were also a lot of ‘bad habits’ left in the memory such as… Angry Birds.
Ms. Duoduo, whose real age was only 1 year old, was not tired of this dangerous game that ruined people. In just a few days, most of the things in the house that were about the size of a pig’s head were destroyed by Ms. Duoduo. Even the regretful daddy couldn’t do anything to correct her. He lamented the difficulty of education.
The battle between Chen Rui and Lalaria in the martial battle championship was quite rewarding, and he felt that he had a better understanding of the power of the 6-star evolution. Unlike a normal Demi-God, he didn’t need to worry about believers or [Armor of Faith], but he clearly felt that ‘law’ was the way forward.
The biggest difference between the kingdom of Demi-God powerhouse and the kingdom of Kingdom level powerhouse was that the Demi-God kingdom was based on reality and had a kingdom projection of faith and life. This not only improved its power qualitatively, but it also provided a steady stream of faith power that supported combat. On the other hand, the kingdom of the Kingdom level was only equivalent to an independent energy space which would constantly consume the power of the person activating it.
Chen Rui only understood this during the battle with Lalaria. In the future training, he would further integrate the power of the kingdom and faith, as well as the mystery of the ‘ release’ of the faith power.
As the ‘backbone’ of the Demi-God kingdom, law was also fundamentally different from Kingdom level, which Chen Rui felt particularly deeply. [Red Pole Star Transformation] was completely different from the law in the normal state, while the law of [Pole Star Transformation] was based on ordinary law. If he could further comprehend and strengthen ordinary law, not only the power of [Pole Star Transformation] would be doubled, but he could also explore the way to the next evolution level.
Having been busy with planning and training previously, Chen Rui was truly relieved now that the martial battle championship was over and the 3 Empires Alliance was about to be completed. He could calm down, study and utilize the new features of the Super System.
The current maximum time law of the training ground had become 1:500, that is, 1 hour was equivalent to 500 hours of training effect. Not only that, the training ground also had the function of [Faith Projection], which could manifest into reality.
The effect was 1/5 of the original training ground, which was getting a time law of 1:100. The longest duration of projection was 3 months in real time, and he needed to pay 1000 faith crystals every day, which was close to 100,000 in 3 months. This price was originally very expensive, but for Chen Rui, who owned the entire Demon Realm’s magic game faith, the faith crystals he now owned were calculated in units of 100 million. Not to mention 100,000, even 1 million or 10 million was nothing to him.
Compared with the training ground, he only needed to sit back and enjoy another function which was the [Star-level Enhancement] under [Link Enhancement]. Compared with the time-limited [Battle Enhancement], [Star-level Enhancement] was a permanent enhancement unless the spiritual link was canceled.
The ‘star conferring’ was also ‘reaping without sowing’.
Whether it was the training ground, [Star-level Enhancement] or star conferring, the necessary condition was the spiritual link. Chen Rui’s original spiritual links were only those who were related to star conferring: Athena, Zola, Isabella, Paglio, Roman, Dodo and Guradam of the master-subordinate contract. The others such as Catherine, Shea, and so on were not covered, and now it was natural to take them into account.
The number of Blue Pole Star Emperor equality contracts upon entering the 6-star evolution was limited to 6, and the number of master-servant contracts was 15. After reaching the Red Pole Star Emperor, the upper limit was doubled. The equality contract was 12, and the master-servant contract (including master-subordinate) 30 people.
Chen Rui thought it over carefully. Duoduo was too young to be considered now. The initial spiritual links of Athena and the other 5 remain unchanged. There were also 6 equality contract spots. 1 reserved for Catherine and 2 for Shea and Kia. First of all, he met the necessary harem spot; the remaining 3 were gifts for friendship for Olypheus, the most promising to advance to Kingdom, Delia, one of Chen Rui’s loyal members, and Krobelus, a best friend of the harem.
The rest of the candidates include Roman’s new ‘mistress’ Medilu, the little loli Alice, naga girl Adeline, Helen (can be ignored), and the elated old man Tetenis, and so on. However, this quota was not constant. As long as he broke through to the next Pole Star Level, the slots would definitely double again, so Chen Rui was not in a hurry.
After the link was established, Chen Rui started the mass distribution of benefits.
The first was the [Star-level Enhancement] of [Link Enhancement].
According to the prompt, the strength of the recipient would be sealed, then in about 1 month, the seal would slowly disappear. This process was like a silkworm spinning a silk cocoon to bind itself before it broke out of the cocoon. Enhancement itself was not dangerous, but after ‘breaking the cocoon’, the amount of strength or progress depended on the absorption and comprehension in that 1 month. The only pity was that this enhancement was only for linked objects, so Chen Rui himself was not included.
The time of ‘cocooning’ could not be offset by the rules of the training ground. Because of this, before participating in the martial battle championship, Chen Rui never used [Star-level Enhancement] on his family and friends. Now the competition had ended, and many people also gained valuable insights in the actual combat, so they could take this opportunity to consolidate and improve.
During this period of enhancement, the group of relatives and friends stayed in the residence most of the time. Chen Rui transferred the maroon lamp spirit Manlace to protect Shea in the palace while he stayed in the Dark Moon to protect Lord Athena as well as relatives and friends.
Every day he took the daughter out for strolling, entered the Super System for training, had fun and traveled with relatives and friends. At night, he would be squeezed by the girls’ ‘begging for children’… The days passed quickly. Before he knew it, a month had passed.
After the [Star-level Enhancement] was completed, the first significant change was sensing power. People who got the [Star-level Enhancement] could sense the existence of each other at a certain distance, and not only Chen Rui alone. This was quite a useful feature for a team.
The second change was naturally strength. Kia reached the peak stage of the Great Demon King; Athena and Delia broke through to the Demon Emperor realm, and Guradam completely fused the bones of Ukleus through the enhanced power. He finally successfully entered the Demon Overlord level. However, the changes in the rest of the people were not obvious at first glance, but everyone could feel the incredible change as if the body had been washed again by some strange strength. Their foundation had been further consolidated, and some stagnation of the previous training was also easily resolved.
Chen Rui had already understood the meaning of the [Star-level Enhancement], which was to use Star Power and faith power to cast off the old self and turn over a new leaf. It not only further solidified the foundation, but it was also easier to break through the bottleneck in the future. It was like a super version of devil fruit.
As Chen Rui who owned the Super System, he naturally didn’t need this kind of enhancement, so [Star-level Enhancement] didn’t work for the controller.
Another unique feature of [Star-level Enhancement] was the ‘interaction’, 2 people who received the enhancement would get an obvious strength buff within a certain distance. The more people, the stronger the buff. The only exception was Guradam of the master-subordinate contract, which was likely because of different type of link. If there were other master-subordinate contractors, Guradam should also be able to get this buff. Regardless of the type of link, the effect of this buff would double as long as Chen Rui was in it. This was simply the halo feature of the team leader, in which non-’team members’ would not have.
