“Teacher… What happened to you?” The boy asked in surprise, looking at the woman who was a little strange.
“Teacher is fine.” The woman’s voice was calm and gentle, but her trembling shoulders betrayed her.
The teenager keenly discovered the abnormality of the woman. Although she had been forced to marry his uncle, in his heart, she would always be the closest and most cherished sister and teacher. Even if it was a little pain, it seemed to stab in his heart.
“Teacher, tell me, what happened?”
“Teacher is really fine.” It was still a warm smile.
“I know! I’m useless! You must hate me very much!” The originally cowardly young man finally got angry rarely. He shouted, “I was stupid back then! I should have brought the teacher out of college! “
“It’s none of your business…” The woman shook her head and sighed, “It’s all destiny, my destiny from birth. Even if the teacher hates anyone, I won’t hate you. Little Arthur, you are teacher’s closest person… the only one. Go away, don’t meet the teacher again. Teacher is an ominous person. Anyone close to me will be doomed.”
“I don’t believe in doom! I’ll take teacher away now! Get out of this damn cage! Even if I give up everything!”
“Everything… Hate everything, destroy everything.” The woman’s shoulders shook even more, and she couldn’t help but murmur as cold as an abyss, “Bearing the most noble hatred, can’t leave any spirit flaws!”
“Teacher, what did you say?”
“You… go quickly!” The woman’s body was shaking, and her breathing became a little heavier.
“Teacher…” The boy hurried over to support the woman.
The woman took a deep breath and her body became stable again.
She stretched out 1 hand and gently stroked the boy’s face. The gaze as deep as the sea was so gentle. Although the other hand hidden behind her was trembling and dripping blood, this hand was warm and gentle.
“Goodbye, Little Arthur. No matter where you’re taken, please live. My student, my younger brother, the only thing I can look up to in the endless abyss, that ray of sunlight…”
The warmth gradually faded away. Although he didn’t understand what was going on, he clearly felt the farewell and sadness, and the boy’s vision couldn’t help being blurred by tears.
Immediately afterward, a space fissure appeared, and the boy’s figure disappeared into the fissure.
Before disappearing, a terrifying roar and the sound of space bursting could vaguely be heard.
In the memory, the consciousness alternated from hazy to clear several times before it finally returned to calm.
Chen Rui slowly opened his eyes – It turned out that this was the truth back then! The ‘real culprit’ who made ‘Arthur’ cross over to the Demon Realm was actually Veronica!
In fact, Veronica launched the space power to banish ‘Arthur’ with all her strength before she lost control and destroyed everything. The real intention was to save his life.
Even at the last moment of the outbreak, the deep blue eyes were still as gentle as water. It was a trace of residual tenderness wrapped in endless construction and hatred.
It’s just that Arthur’s luck was too bad. He was banished to the Demon Realm by the space power. Because his body was too weak, he not only lost most of his memory, but he was also on the verge of death. At this time, it happened that Chen Rui’s soul crossover and merged with Arthur. In the end, the consciousness reborn, becoming the now brand new ‘Arthur-Chen Rui’.
Because it was merging rather than a complete devour, Arthur still had a certain residual consciousness. Due to the insufficient strength, he did not feel this residual at first. The higher the level of strength, the clearer the sense of this consciousness.
The stronger the strength, the harder the road. Every nuance was enough to affect the overall situation. To reach a higher realm, Chen Rui must solve all the redundant factors, and Arthur’s consciousness was one of them.
Veronica is the biggest obsession – and now it seems, this obsession is indeed living up to its name.
In fact, it wasn’t just Veronica whom he was obsessed with enough to cause an effect, there was another man whom Arthur loved and hated.
The human mind is the most unpredictable thing.
It seems that the most difficult mission is not the last stop at the Holy Light Mountain, but the first stop at the Dragon Bright Empire.
However, he had now temporarily left the first stop and was heading to the second stop, the Blue Glory Empire.
There was a fiancee who had ‘waited’ for 7 years, and she was also an ‘old friend’ whom he had met several times.
The sales of the magic game have stabilIzed now. The ‘popularity’ of the Holy Church was indeed very strong. The magic game had far more coverage than the aromatic millet wine. Although Chen Rui himself was no longer in the Golden Estate, there were Isabella and Samuel, and other people there. Even if he left, the development and growth of the magic game was not a problem.
Zola, Paglio, and Dodo became the ‘guardians’ of this entourage. Zola got the secret news from Ms. Yini, her biggest purpose of this trip was to supervise certain matters between someone and his fiancée; Master Slime had been in the Golden Estate for a while, and he was a little bored of staying there, so he faithfully said that ‘I wanted to follow the master’. In fact, he planned to follow the master to enjoy the food, drink, and fun. Master Poison Dragon originally wanted to take his wife to join the tour group, but Ms. Emerald Dragon stayed in the Golden Estate for closed-door training as her strength just broke through.
Krobelus had completely digested the power of the law fragment, and the distance from kingdomization was just a step. When eating a few days ago, Ms. Betty suddenly demonstrated her prowess and ate all the food, then she started closed-door training in enlightenment. This way of breaking through made Chen Rui a little speechless – the advancement of foodies?
As for safety, there was no need to worry. There was now a dragon presiding in the Golden Estate; that was the Holy Dragon Gueroas, ‘the cooperative representative of the dragon’. Although regarded as a mortal enemy by the Old Father-in-law Elf King and defeated by Chen Rui, this Demi-God level dragon elder was still quite good to Zola, Chen Rui and other ‘juniors’. With his protection, nothing could basically go wrong with the Golden Estate. Worse comes to worst, he could bring Isabella and Samuel back to the Dragon Valley.
Veronica, wait for me.
We will meet again.
I will face the real you.
Perhaps, with the real me, with these hands… A smirk appeared on Chen Rui’s face.
“Master, stop smirking. What’s so good about your hands. You’re about to lose this game!” The slime’s voice sounded.
Paglio’s smug laughter came from the opposite side, “Haha, what kind of magic card king. Aren’t you showing off just now? How come your main force is eaten by Master Poison Dragon now? Eh, Zola, you are cheating for this guy!”
It turned out that they were playing ‘Fate Showdown’, the ancient magic card game, in the carriage. Paglio was actually a rookie, but now he was just at the stage of ‘getting addicted’, and his interest was quite large.
Taking advantage of Chen Rui’s distraction, the poison dragon sent a team to set up an ambush to kill all the Glorious Knight Captains led by Chen Rui’s main force. The poison dragon’s army pursued after the victory and went straight to the location of the castle.
Ms. Fairy Dragon beside Chen Rui could not stand seeing the triumphant villain expression of the poison dragon, so she gave him a lightning strike with just the right power. As a result, Master Poison Dragon’s hair stood up and turned into a punk style explosive head.
“Don’t be too happy, rookie.” Chen Rui shook the jade hand of Ms. Fairy Dragon, indicating that he didn’t need his wife for such a rookie.
No doubt, Master Poison Dragon couldn’t laugh anymore. After his army reached the position, there was no castle, but a large area of defensive towers, causing the entire army to be wiped out. At the same time, a team of a Silver Queen led a few Champion Swordsman to demolish the houses while activating treatment at the poison dragon’s own site, demolishing all defense and resource buildings such as the defense tower, farmhouse, logging yard, and so on. The poison dragon had hundreds of manufacturable soldiers; he just didn’t have the money to build them, so he could only watch the most elementary Champion Swordsmen openly demolish them within their own sphere of influence. The buildings that took great effort to build and upgrade were demolished one by one. This process was quite painful to watch. Master Poison Dragon lost his temper completely and conceded defeat.
“The so-called show off is just to attract your attention, rookie. The real killing move comes later. As long as the method is right, even the smallest power can change the whole battle.” Chen Rui implicitly said. No one knew if he was referring to the poker game or something else.
Ms. Fairy Dragon cast a demonstrative glance at the dejected Master Poison Dragon, then she continued to lean comfortably on Chen Rui’s shoulder.
“Master Truly Handsome!” Master Slime hurriedly flattered, and one ‘hand’ sneaked out a wine bottle and took a sip. This was Paglio’s wine.
Although the ride was a carriage, in this independent space item, the degree of turbulence was greatly reduced, so it was just like in an ordinary room.
At this moment, someone knocked on the door; it was Proyo.
Proyo looked like a young man in his early 20s, but his real age was actually in his 30s. His strength was Pseudo-Saint (Demon Emperor), and he was the deputy legion commander of the Dragon Scale Legion of the empire. He was appointed as the leader of this escort team. There were also 2 Saint (Demon Overlord) powerhouses, Bedell and Cardo, as well as dozens of elites of the Dragon Scale Legion, all of whom obey Proyo’s dispatch.
Proyo was capable of doing things and had a cheerful temperament, which gave a good first impression. Anyway, he was also Freya’s fiancé, so Chen Rui’s attitude was more friendly.
Dodo’s ‘hand’ extended a few meters and opened the door. Proyo saw the magic cards on the table, and he was stunned for a moment, then he spoke up, “Your Highness, we have arrived at the Yang Shao Capital.”
Meanwhile, in another place.
Another Chen Rui’ showed an implicit smile with a frightening red light flashing in his eyes. As the most trusted guardian of the east district’s Chief Bishop Soranly, he held a secret order that Soranly had just received from above.
The mission of this secret order was not only aimed at the east district, but also the heads of all areas of the mysterious cult. The content was only 1 sentence: Use all efforts to kill the third prince of the Dragon Bright Empire, Arthur. Roland, who is going to the Blue Glory Empire to hold a wedding!
TL: He wants to disappear in the assassination of the Black Death Followers? What about the holy relic?
