Chen Rui walked quickly to the hall of Golden Estate’s lord mansion and he saw Isabella chatting cordially with Veronica.
These 2 women actually had a lot in common. They both wear veils, and they were both beautiful women, uh… Although Chen Rui had not seen Veronica’s face yet, at least the temperament of the 2 women was superb.
Isabella gave full play to the ‘attribute’ of the former ‘Devil’s Snare Flower’. No matter what she said or did, she displayed an elegant and confident demeanor. If there was a man on the side, they must have been attracted right now.
From Chen Rui’s familiarity with Ms. Yini, it could be seen that Madam Aunt has entered a special state of ‘combat mode’ because the woman opposite was also perfect and excellent, which had brought her a lot of pressure.
How weird, why did Lex the Great ask Veronica to teach etiquette. Is it a concession? Or is it another form of coercion?
“Cough…” Chen Rui coughed deliberately, and the 2 women’s attention suddenly shifted.
“Your Highness.” In the presence of Isabella, Veronica’s name had obviously changed, “I have been ordered by His Majesty to teach Your Highness etiquettes…”
“Teacher, call me ‘Arthur’. ” Chen Rui interrupted Veronica, “Yini is not an outsider. She is 1 of the guardians of the ancient civilization that I have inherited and my most cherished wife.”
When Veronica heard the word ‘wife’, her pupils shrank slightly, and an expression of surprise flashed by.
“You should add the words ‘one of’ in front.” Isabella added with a smile, “Your Highness cherishes more than 1 woman, isn’t it?”
Chen Rui smiled awkwardly, and Veronica also smiled, “It seems that ‘Little Arthur’ really grew up, right? My student and younger brother.”
“‘Little Arthur’.” Isabella nodded solemnly, “It’s a good name, I’ve always wanted to call you that.”
The 2 women looked at each other and laughed at the same time. Chen Rui, who was acting as a kind of mascot, could only be speechless.
Veronica sincerely praised, “Ms. Yini has a rare temperament and demeanor. You must have come from a royal family. It seems unnecessary that His Majesty asked me to come here to teach Little Arthur etiquettes.”
“What kind of royal family, I’m just a remnant of a lost empire.” Isabella’s blue eyes flashed with a hint of sadness, “My relatives are basically gone.”
In terms of the royal etiquette of noble families in the Demon, Ms. Yini could be regarded as a professor level, but if it was applied to the human world, perhaps it would be exposed.
“Whatever it is, it is already in the past.” Veronica’s eyes showed a gentle expression, “If Ms. Yini doesn’t mind, I would like to invite you to participate in the study of court etiquettes with Little Arthur. I believe that Ms. Yini and I can benefit from it.”
“Can I?” Isabella regained her original elegance and looked at Chen Rui with a smile.
Chen Rui could see that Ms. Yini’s gaze clearly read “If you don’t agree, you will surely die.” At this time, can I still say ‘no’?
The study of etiquette was originally a boring thing, but with Isabella there, interspersed with some appropriate interludes from time to time, it turned into a kind of fun.
Relaxing days always pass very fast. Soon, the etiquette class in the morning was over.
“It was a pleasant morning.” Veronica declined Chen Rui’s invitation to dine together, “Arthur, Yini, His Majesty’s imperial guards team have been waiting in the city, and they will escort me back, so you don’t have to worry. If His Majesty doesn’t change his mind, I’ll come back in a few days. Or you can go to my Shion Palace. I also want Yini to give me some pointers on the floral design.”
Isabella watched Veronica’s disappearing figure, then sighed softly, “That woman… even though her face was smiling, her heart has become a pool of ashes. She hides it almost perfectly, but she still couldn’t hide it from me. Because when I looked at her, it was like I saw myself in the mirror – My past self.”
Chen Rui gently held Isabella’s hand, “It’s all over now.”
“I think that the past 100 years…” Isabella stared into his eyes affectionately, “is for today’s happiness. Without the pain and suffering of the past, I could not be so happy today. I’m very lucky to meet you, my love.”
“It’s also my luck.”
The lips of the 2 blended together, feeling the warmth in each other’s hearts.
“Hey, I’m going back to prepare lunch. Yesterday, I learned a new dish, called bacon fillet. Coincidentally, you can be the guinea pig.”
“If you want to grab a man’s heart, you must first grab his stomach?”
Ms. Yini smiled coquettishly, “Your stomach is not easy to grab. On the other hand, we poor sisters have been grabbed by your food long ago.”
Chen Rui shrugged, “This can be understood as equality between men and women.”
Isabella smiled and walked forward. She suddenly stopped at the door, “Chen Rui.”
“If you can’t help her reborn in the ashes, then help her… annihilate completely.”
“I know better than anyone that that is the best liberation…”
Chen Rui lowered his head and remained silent.
Time passed day by day.
On this day, Golden Estate finally welcomed the long-awaited ‘guest’.
The Holy Church’s Cardinal Gralin, along with a man and a woman.
There were also 2 ‘guardians’ to add momentum to Chen Rui’s side, Master Poison Dragon and his wife.
Gralin was probably the person from the Holy Church who was most familiar with ‘Arthur’ by now. Sir Cardinal, who looked radiant, joked as soon as he walked in, “Your Highness, glad to disturb you again.”
“I’m glad to be disturbed by Sir Gralin again.” Chen Rui’s eyes quickly glanced over at the man and the woman as he also smiled, “Looking at Sir Gralin’s appearance, I believe you bring good news this time.”
“It’s really good news!” Gralin seemed very confident, “Within 3 days, the dragons from the Dragon Valley will come to the Golden Estate to discuss cooperation with Your Highness about the magic games.”
Chen Rui’s eyes lit up, “Wonderful! Sir Gralin, your presence is a huge surprise! I can imagine how much effort the church… uh, the Holy Blessing Summit put into this. I promise that the Holy Blessing Summit and the Holy Church as a whole will not regret this decision.”
“Then, the promise of Your Highness last time…”
“I will do as I say, Sir Gralin.” Chen Rui nodded without hesitation, “When I get the 2 holy relics of the Dragon Bright Empire and the Blue Glory Empire, I will accept the recommendation of the Holy Blessing Summit to join the Holy Church. Next month, I will go to the Blue Glory Empire to participate in the engagement ceremony with Princess Landbis. The goal of course… is the Holy Grail of the Blue Glory Empire. I will have to use the help of the Holy Blessing Summit at that time.”
Gralin noticed Chen Rui’s special emphasis on the ‘Holy Blessing Summit’, and he smiled a little more, “Of course. Please rest assured Your Highness, whether Your Highness marry that Princess Landbis or ascend to the throne of the Dragon Bright Empire, it does not conflict with joining the Holy Church. En… I will introduce, 2 people to Your Highness first. This is Miranda, the direct apprentice of Her Holiness Holy Lady.”
Chen Rui looked at the fair-skinned blond woman with beautiful facial features and a slightly cold face, and he nodded slightly, “Ms. Miranda.”
He and this girl with elf blood were actually ‘acquaintances’. When he was in the Holy Light Mountain as Paul’s subordinate, he played a character who was proficient in soul language and had a coveted heart for Miranda. Later, Eliza, who was also the Holy Lady’s apprentice, showed her true hideous face and used Miranda to set up a vile plan to capture Chen Rui’s ‘soul language’ power. In the end, it was self-defeating and she became an idiot with a mental breakdown.
Of course, Miranda didn’t know that the popular person who was fought over by the 3 factions of the church was ‘Richard’ who made a fuss at the Holy Light Mountain and stole the Snow Dallet Tree back then. However, Prince ‘Arthur”s gaze was very clear without the slightest distraction. This made the half-elf girl had a better impression of him in her mind as she bowed, “Your Highness Arthur, teacher was thinking to come in person, but she was holding a baptism of light for a newly acquired apprentice before. It will take a while and she couldn’t stop in the middle, so she send me here to extend her sincerest regards.”
“The new apprentice… is Ms. Tiffany mentioned by Sir Gralin.” Chen Rui said casually, “Her Holiness Holy Lady is too polite, I should be the one going to the Holy Blessing Summit to meet her. “
The news of the ‘new apprentice Tiffany’ was exactly the news that Chen Rui got from Gralin, and it was precisely for this reason that Chen Rui instructed Dragon Emperor Pagris to ‘authorize’ the magic game to the Holy Lady Faction. As for how much benefit Pagris got, then it was none of Chen Rui’s business.
Chen Rui planned this magic game layout from beginning to end. For this reason, he also got a lot of practical benefits from the competition between the 3 major forces. However, the game had its rules. After this matter was finalized, he chose the Holy Blessing Summit. Before the ability and strength reached a certain level, he could no longer wait for good offers from the 3 factions as before.
Miranda said some words of courtesies, then she bowed again without speaking. Gralin introduced the black-haired man with his eyes closed to Chen Rui, “This is the Holy Light Guardian Knight of the Holy Blessing Summit, Rafael.”
The 3 main peaks of the Holy Light Mountain had their own guardian knights, which were divided into 3 types: White Brilliance, Silver Splendor, and Holy Light. Holy Light was the highest level guardian knight.
Chen Rui stared deeply at the man as his eyes narrowed slightly, revealing an extremely rare expression of awe. His tone even trembled, “I wonder if every Holy Light Guardian Knight is so special? Why do I see an unprecedented light in this Holy Light Guardian Knight? It is so bright and holy that it is impossible to look directly…”
Chen Rui’s awe and trembling were naturally faked; he had to pretend.

This Rafael had the strength of the peak stage of the Demi-God, yet he was just an avatar.
Since he came here with Gralin from the Holy Blessing Summit Faction, the angel’s identity was obvious!
TL: Raphael? He won’t see through Chen Rui’s disguise right?
