In the faint purple sky, there were a few scattered starlights. The color of the 2 moons was almost thin, and it was pitch black everywhere. The leaves in the cold wind shook slightly, making a rustling sound.
As soon as Chen Rui opened his eyes, he saw the calm sky.
This feeling of ‘quietness’ was like the woman who was sleeping beside him.
The star observatory of the palace was the tallest building in the Dark Shadow Empire, surrounded by various magic circles including silent magic circles. Even without these set up, every time Her Majesty Empress went to the star observatory, there were almost no people who would look for her or interrupt.
Many guards, including ministers, knew that Her Majesty Empress liked to have a quiet time alone on the star observatory. It was said that many decisions that could affect the entire Demon Realm were made here. For instance, teaming up with the Bloody Empire to fight against the top powerhouse, Midnight Sun’s Fallen Angel Empire back then. This place could be regarded as a turning point in the rise of the Dark Shadow Empire.
However, no one could have imagined that this time Her Majesty Empress’s ‘quiet time’ was spending the night in the arms of a man.
Chen Rui himself could not have imagined it. It was initially a romantic rendezvous or called an ‘infidelity’, but he and Catherine talked about things here from the afternoon until midnight. In the middle, apart from changing roles as a chef and a musician, they actually didn’t do any ‘important’ things before they gradually fell asleep.
A month ago, Catherine had already obtained the strength of [Star-level Enhancement]. The main purpose of this meeting was star conferring. Duoduo got the ‘Star Commander’ for mommy. With Catherine’s kingdomized strength, it was naturally a true star position.
Looking at the top beauty lying quietly beside him with a peaceful face like a baby, something called blissfulness spread silently in his heart.
He secretly channeled power to relieve the numb arm, raised his head, and looked at the sparse stars in the sky. Chen Rui felt his mood become more and more peaceful.
There was no cruel war, no crisis of life and death, no heavy burden, just hugging the beloved woman like this, quietly looking at the starry sky, and slowly growing old together. This was the life he dreamt of and the goal that he strived for.
Suddenly, there was a strange throbbing in Chen Rui’s soul as if a certain kind of fire that was dimmed by being wrapped in darkness was suddenly ignited. His whole soul became hot.
The flame gradually solidified into a huge hazy eye, but the strong sense of oppression it exuded was extremely clear.
“The blessed ones of the ‘Evil Moon Sigil’…” The giant eye made a suffocating voice, and every word caused the soul to tremble, “It’s time to fulfill the promise.”
Chen Rui was shocked. What should come is finally coming. Judging from Sariel’s tone, it seems that I am not the only ‘blessed ones’ of the ‘Evil Moon Sigil’?
“You have 10 days to gather at the place indicated by the Evil Pupil and wait for my order. Those who break their promises or exceed the time will be completely annihilated in the seal curse!”
In 10 days, if I can’t arrive at some place, I will be annihilated?
In fact, after integrating the strength of [Deep Analysis], the Evil Pupil had already become Chen Rui’s real strength. If he wanted, he could eliminate Sariel’s part of the seal at any time, but he exposed Aguile’s name in front of Sariel last time. If the seal was hurriedly extinguished, once Sariel noticed it and took revenge, it was likely to implicate many people.
In addition, Raizen’s commission was also related to the fate and peace of the entire Demon Realm… Alright, I am not that noble, but at least it is related to the happiness of my women, so I must go for this trip to the Mysterious Land.
Mysterious Land, Silver Box, Tiffany, Sariel, Satan, the rest of the blessed ones…
Get rid of Sariel’s control completely and bring back Tiffany. Perhaps… that silver box too…
While thinking about it, Sariel’s eyes flashed, and Chen Rui felt that there was something in his Evil Pupil which seemed to be a kind of compass. The 2 luminous spots in it could determine the position and direction of himself and his destination.
Strangely enough, the red luminous spots that represented him actually almost overlap with the green luminous spot that represented the destination. So, the gathering area Sariel said is actually near the Dark Shadow Empire?
Before he could think about it, Sariel’s image had gradually faded in his soul before he disappeared without a trace in the blink of an eye.
Chen Rui pondered for a moment, then he retracted his thoughts. Whether it is a blessing or a disaster, it could not be avoided. Now I don’t know anything about this action, so I can only adapt accordingly.
All of a sudden, he sensed something. When he turned his head, he saw 2 eyes that were brighter than the stars and quieter than the sky looking at him.
Chen Rui said apologetically, “Did I wake you up?”
Catherine’s eyes became more gentle as she shook her head gently, “It’s almost dawn.”
“En.” Chen Rui stroked her hair lightly. Catherine’s hair was long and soft. It was usually coiled on her head, and it looked like a waterfall when she untied it.
Catherine looked up at the sky, and her soft voice sounded, “The darkness before dawn. The darkness is quiet and cold, but it is more of a feeling of rebirth where a new day will be born and created. From darkness to light, to vitality, and finally back to the darkness, over and over again. Do you… like this kind of darkness?”
Chen Rui stared at her side face. Although the visibility was low, with his eyesight, he could clearly see the perfect outline and shining eyes at this distance. This is my woman, the woman who said ‘I finally have you’ in front of everyone.
I’ve always been afraid that we will pass by and gradually drift apart. I’m afraid that I can’t stand the test of time, and the memory of you will gradually fade away…
Chen Rui smiled as he said the 3 words softly, “I like it.”
Catherine heard the meaning and emotion contained in these 3 words, and gave him a deep look- If one day, the people abandoned me, the officers betrayed me, and even everyone in the world stood against me, this man will still stand by my side, right?
As he himself said, a ‘fool’ that lost his intelligence over lust.
But it firmly grasped her heart.
He once said that one day, when she no longer had to bear the burden on her shoulders, he would take her out of here to a place that truly belonged to them to live a relaxed and happy life.
This day will come, right?
It is like the dawn that gave birth to a new life. Before that, although it was dark, he was with me. No matter whether advance or retreat, success or failure, I have no regrets.
Catherine’s heart suddenly filled with hope for the future.
“What’s wrong?” A concerned voice came from the side.
“It’s nothing, just… I think your appearance just now is a bit attractive, just like when I woke up, you were staring at the sky.”
“Isn’t it very handsome? Very dashing?” Chen Rui was 😦 when he inexplicably thought of a certain the slime’s recent catchphrase, truly-handsome, but his tension due to Sariel’s summon was gradually eased.
“No, it’s very ‘cute’.” Catherine pursed her lips, revealing a shallow smile.
Chen Rui was speechless for a while, “This word is not suitable to describe a man.”
“But it suits you very well.” Catherine’s eyes turned, and there was a bit of playfulness in her tranquil eyes, which made Chen Rui dumbfounded.
“I’ll take it as a compliment for now. I just take it as I’m handsome and dashing, plus a little cute.”
“Hmph! Your self-intoxication level is about to catch up with the flowery words.” Catherine leaned on her side, resting her head on his shoulder more comfortably, while one leg rested on his body. Her Majesty Empress enjoyed this feeling: Steady, peaceful and safe with nothing to guard against.
“By the way, the preparatory work for the alliance of the 3 empires has basically been completed, and the people’s expectations are quite high. It depends on when you bring back that fiancee, the future Royal Majesty Empress of the Bloody Empire.”
Chen Rui smiled bitterly, “The tone of the last sentence made me feel that Her Majesty Empress is also a woman.”
Her Majesty Empress first turned her face sideways, then she asked with interest, “Who is the Her Majesty Empress you are talking about?”
Chen Rui was suddenly at a loss for words just like another Royal Majesty Empress who often was at a loss for words facing his flowery words. In fact, she was right. After all, a certain Sir Son-in-law of the Demon Realm still had a ‘future’ Royal Majesty Empress.
“You seem a little unwilling?”
“I’m willing! I’m willing!”
“Really willing? You are going to go back pitifully without taking advantage of anything?” Her Majesty Empress blinked playfully, and the corners of her eyebrows showed a seductive hint, which was different from the temptation talent of the little maid and Madam Aunt’s fascination. It was a kind of natural seduction which made people’s hearts skip a beat.
When Chen Rui reacted, he felt that the warm breath merged with his own breath. It turned out that there was zero distance between Her Majesty Empress and him as the cherry lips were gently pressed on his mouth.
It was also a very natural move.
With the warm lips and tongues intertwined, Chen Rui’s mind had been completely relaxed as he indulged in the intimate contact with Her Majesty Empress. His hands that stopped on her soft hair moved toward the neck and the back, gently stroking her smooth back.
Catherine’s body slowly flipped over, completely lying on top of him. Her cloud-like black hair was casually draped. The 2 plumps pressed against his chest. Even though she breastfed Ms. Duoduo, the plumps didn’t have a sign of drooping. In Chen Rui’s impression, they were more plump and firm.
When Chen Rui’s hand slid down to the round and tight ass and stroked the watery valley, the empress’ breathing became more and more rapid. A stimulating moan came from her lips as she grasped the hard object and slowly incorporated it into her body.
Facing the man she loved deeply, the mature body did not need to be concealed or suppressed. The accumulated longing and love were merged in the desire and bloomed without reservation.
It only bloomed for him alone.
The stars gradually dimmed as the sky gradually turned yellow and gray. Although the ground was still pitch-black, the silent vibe quietly disappeared, replaced by the rhythm of life before dawn.
A new day was about to begin.
