Pagris quietly watched the poison dragon left. Just as he said, as long as Paglio could leave the gate, he would not interfere.
It wasn’t until the poison dragon couple completely disappeared from his vision that the Dragon Emperor spoke with a colder tone, “Human, you are better than I imagined. You not only disintegrated my imprisoning power instantly, but you also blocked almost all my abilities. Even if it was only for a moment, it is enough to surprise me. However, I would like to ask you, does this behavior represent your provocation to the majesty of the Dragon Emperor?”
Chen Rui’s move was indeed a face-slap. If it weren’t for his previous cooperation and his relationship with Meria and Zola, Dragon Emperor Pagris’ tone would not have been so tactful.
What Chen Rui activated just now was the power of [Deprivation] given by Python. Since Pagris was a Pseudo-God powerhouse, the [Deprivation] power could only be maintained for a moment. Even so, it was enough for Paglio and Krobelus to escape successfully.
Everyone knew that Chen Rui had actually blocked the strength of the Dragon Emperor Pagris just now, so they were all moved – As the Dragon Emperor said, even for a moment, it was enough to surprise everyone. After all, Pagris was a Pseudo-God!
“What is the relationship between that Cairrealo and Your Majesty?” Chen Rui asked. Feeling the strong pressure from the Dragon Emperor, he channeled Star Power secretly, trying his best to stabilize his mind.
“We are comrades-in-arms and brothers who can give our lives for each other.” A trace of pain flashed in Pagris’ golden eyes, “Back then, Cairrealo sacrificed his life to cover my escape.”
“At that time, Your Majesty and the poison dragon brother should be facing… an unstoppable enemy right?”
“Yes, my strength hadn’t even reached Demi-God back then, and Cairrealo’s combat power was far above me. Unfortunately, we are still not the opponent of that enemy.” The expression of pain in the Dragon Emperor’s eyes became more intense and his tone became extremely solemn. “I was seriously injured and completely lost the ability to move, and he… he knew that he would definitely die to stay, but he rushed to divert the enemy without hesitation. I could only watch him…”
“Royal Majesty Dragon Emperor, you are… cunning, insidious, shameless, and sometimes an unscrupulous guy.” Chen Rui’s words shocked Meria. The surrounding dragons’ elders glared angrily.
Pagris’ golden eyes flashed red with murderous intent as his voice became colder, “You mean I deliberately let Cairrealo…”
Chen Rui shook his head, “Cunning, insidious, shameless, and sometimes unscrupulous. The same is true for me. Thankfully, I, like Your Majesty, have a brother who can fully watch my back, and he is also a poison dragon. Cairrealo was able to hold off that unmatched enemy for Your Majesty back then, and today… I can too.”
Pagris raised his eyebrows, and his burning gaze was fixed on Chen Rui’s face. Chen Rui seemed very calm, but the Dragon Emperor clearly saw resolute in human’s eyes without any pretense.
This human and the son of Cairrealo are indeed brothers who can entrust life and death to each other. Just like Cairrealo and I back then.
“No doubt you’re a cunning and shameless guy.” Pagris’ murderous aura suddenly disappeared. Instead, his eyes were filled with warmth and admiration, “The son of Cairrealo is really lucky to have a companion like you.”
Chen Rui smiled slightly, “Both of us are lucky.”
“Hmph. However, this is Dragon Valley, and I’m the Dragon Emperor. I felt that my dignity was being challenged just now, so you must give me a satisfactory answer.” Although the Dragon Emperor’s face was still tense, everyone knew that this sentence actually had no substantive coercion; it was more about taking back his face.
Chen Rui pondered and said, “I also have a special magic product called the ‘magic phone’ that will also bring long-term and huge benefits which is no less than the magic game. Initially, I didn’t want this product to be released so soon, but for my brother, I’m willing to change the plan and give 20% of the profit of this product to the dragons for free. What does Your Majesty think of this ‘answer’?”
“Very good.” Pagris didn’t ask more details about the magic phone. With a wave of his hand, ‘Thunder Flail’ and the green gem ring flew to Chen Rui, “Since you are the brother of the son of Cairrealo, you will keep these for him. I have cast dragon secret art on the Thunder Flail, which allows it to be kept in the space equipment. However, except for the bloodline of Cairrealo, others cannot exert the power of the artifact. In fact, that little guy… he just can’t figure it out now. If one day, when he figures it out or if he changes his mind, you give him these 2 things. The doors of the Dragon Valley are always open to him.”
Chen Rui also did not refuse it and kept the flail and ring into the storage warehouse.
“Since the magic phone is ready to be released in advance, some things will be adjusted accordingly… Well, I will first build a core signal station for the magic game in the Dragon Valley so that all the dragons in the Dragon Valley can participate in the ‘Infinite’ Warrior OL’ trial. This training process… um, let’s call it the ‘closed beta’ trial. The future ‘public beta’ will be completely open to the entire human world, and wealth will naturally flow in. However, the current closed beta test must be confidential. Only dragons can participate in this kind of trial. Haste makes waste. Don’t be anxious about the economic benefits of aromatic millet wine, telephone, games, etc. When the time is right, I will naturally have plans to promote them. Your Majesty and elders, please believe me. “
“Of course we trust you. In terms of confidentiality, you can rest assured. This is related to the future of the dragons, so I will issue a strict order. If anyone dares to disclose it, they will be severely punished.” Pagris nodded. The ability of this human is beyond doubt. His proposal is equal to letting the dragons strengthen themselves in advance via trials, which is definitely the most important point. As for that kind of economic benefit, it will be long-term anyway, so there is no hurry.
“By the way,” Chen Rui thought of one thing, “I have 1 more question for Your Majesty. Does Your Majesty know about the Holy Dragon Rodriguez?”
“Rodriguez is a famous powerhouse of the holy dragon family. He has reached Pseudo-God back then, but he does not belong to the Dragon Valley.” Pagris pondered for a moment and said, “The Dragon Valley cannot include all the dragons in the human world. Although most of the past Dragon Emperor is from the holy dragon family, even the voices of the holy dragons are not the same. As the most powerful dragon family, the holy dragon has an incomparably powerful life force and is the best in offensive and defensive ability among dragons. We are immune to low and intermediate grade magic. Plus the characteristic of light attributes, we are called ‘glorious dragons’. Therefore, the holy dragon has been valued by the Holy Light Mountain, and it has attracted various attention in the church. After multiple ways to win over us, part of the holy dragons took refuge in the Holy Church. Rodriguez was the leader of them. About 700,000 years ago, the Holy Church Archbishop Mobil led a group to search for the light origin fragment. They suffered heavy casualties upon meeting a powerful enemy. Rodriguez went to provide reinforcement after receiving the signal for help. As a result, Rodriguez defeated the enemy, but he did something unexpected by the church, that is, he beheaded all the light priests, including Mobil, and took the light origin fragment. Unexpectedly, Mobil still transmitted the truth to the church with his spiritual power. In the end, Rodriguez was chased by the 3 archangels of the church and was severely injured by Raphael, but he still used the church’s artifact the ‘Tower of Glory’ to escape. His whereabouts are still unknown now.”
“Tower of Glory’?” Chen Rui thought for a while and asked again, “The artifact of the church?”
“The Tower of Glory is the rarest space artifact and one of the strongest artifacts in the Holy Church. It is said that the Tower of Glory can activate the power of 3 artifacts. The first being the ‘space barrier’ where space can be used as a barrier to effectively defend against various attacks of the enemy. The second is the ‘space shuttle’, a long-distance space shuttle that can break through the enchantment and perform a random long-distance space shuttle. Rodriguez used this ability to escape the originally deadly pursuit several times. The third is ‘kingdom merging’. It can form a special space by merging a kingdom and can carry a large number of life entities to move freely in space. But there is a limitation, that is, you can’t activate the kingdom to fight or do other things while moving. Unless you have 2 kingdoms, 1 for merging and 1 for combat. “
Chen Rui’s heart thumped when he heard it – The ‘Tower of Glory’ is actually so badass! That space shuttle is a good weapon to escape. I used the ‘Dark Will’, a ring with teleportation ability given by Shea back then. However, the ring is very tricky. Not only is it susceptible to interference and failure, but sometimes when bad luck occurs, I will even be teleported to the face of the enemy. The ‘Tower of Glory’ is obviously a licensed and upgraded product. It is drastically better than the kind of fake and shoddy imitation products like the ‘Dark Will’,. The most attractive thing is the ‘kingdom merging’ that carries life entities for space movement. If I use it with the [Star Gate], I can bring an army to travel freely between the 2 worlds without a problem.
The Dragon Emperor’s eyes narrowed, “You’re so interested in these past events. Could it be that… you got the Tower of Glory?”
You really guessed it right! Chen Rui was anxious immediately. This space artifact is no trivial matter. If I disclose it in front of Pagris, it is hard to guarantee that he will not covet it. He had a spontaneous idea, “To be honest, Your Majesty, I once practiced for a long time in the Demon Realm; I met my lover, Isabella, there. I have heard that there is a holy dragon called Rodriguez, who had a big battle with the Dragon Emperor Crusier of the Demon Realm’s Dragon Island hundreds of thousands of years ago. In the end, he was wounded and fled with missing whereabouts. That’s why I asked this question. I never thought there would be such an insider story.”
“It turns out that Rodriguez escaped to the Demon Realm! No wonder he has been missing. However, as far as I know, even if the ordinary trainers really get the Tower of Glory, it will be useless because the Tower of Glory needs to use Pseudo-God’s soul power to activate…”
Pagris’ words made Chen Rui suddenly have a realization. No wonder, the Tower of Glory that I obtained from Rodriguez cannot be used after the success of [Deep Analysis]. It turns out that it needs to be activated by the Pseudo-God’s soul power! “
To wait until I reach the level of Pseudo-God, I’m afraid that it will be a long time away. Speaking of the soul of Pseudo-God… there is a ready-made one… But a slight mistake is likely to result in a double penalty. It is better to be patient, and think of a long term plan.
“Okay, without further ado, Great Elder Meria will stay and negotiate with you in detail.” The Dragon Emperor yawned and stood up, “I will do what I say, tomorrow, I will personally officiate the marriage of the 3 of you.”
