“I’m a friend of Grand Master Finoia! I’m invited to the Silver Moon Celestial Capital!”
Chen Rui didn’t want to repeat the mistake of misunderstanding with the mountain hobbit, and now he was eager to find out what happened to the Stone Fist Village, so he immediately held up the green leaf map high as he said loudly, “This is the green leaf map that he gave me!
Finoia said that the green leaf map could not only indicate the direction, but it was also an identity certificate. As long as he reached the official residence of the elf tribe, such as the Purple Orchid Port that Chen Rui went to with Starlight College’s Deputy Dean Socrates last time, he could show the map to receive the highest courtesy of the elf tribe and led to the Silver Moon Celestial Capital.
However, this time Chen Rui’s plan changed on the way. Instead of going directly to the elf’s residence, he went around the forest sea from the other direction.
The whistle of the arrows stopped suddenly as if there was some kind of communication, and the roots of the treants slowly retracted, but the bows and arrows of the elves in the woods were still aimed at the 2 of them. No one stepped forward.
Chen Rui motioned for Zola to land on the ground, then they stood there and waited patiently. After a while, a familiar voice sounded in the distance.
“Old friend, is that you?” The voice was Finoia himself.
“Of course!” Chen Rui was surprised and delighted, “Sir Finoia, that’s how you welcomed your old friend Chen Rui?”
The name Chen Rui was completely unfamiliar to the human world. Only a few relatives and friends know the real meaning. Finoia was one of them. Without a doubt, he walked out of the woods and appeared in front of Chen Rui.
“You’re finally here, my friend.” The elf grand master stepped forward and hugged Chen Rui. This hug only touched the shoulders, but for an elf, it was already a very intimate etiquette. This scene let all the elves in the woods put down their hostility.
“This is my wife Zola. The last time you and Bernd came, she happened to be training and didn’t meet you. However, I remember talking about her and her father on purpose.”
Finoia was shocked, and his gaze toward Zola immediately became awe-inspiring. He gracefully said with a very formal and solemn ceremony, “It is an honor to meet you, beautiful lady, descendant of the legendary hero king.”
Knowing that this elf was 1 of Chen Rui’s only friends in the human world, Zola smiled and returned with an ancient magician etiquette.
The elves in the distance were taken aback when they saw Finoia’s way of bowing, and they secretly guessed the origin of this powerful female magician who actually made the grand master of the tribe so respectful toward her.
Finoia asked Chen Rui, “Why are you here? I told several elf stations to keep an eye out for your arrival, but I didn’t expect you to choose this path.”
“I’ll explain to you later.” Chen Rui looked at the heavily armed elf soldiers behind, “Is this the Stone Fist Village where Bernd is located? Why are there so many warriors of the elf tribe? Has something wrong happened?”
Finoia nodded solemnly, “The forest hobbit is really facing a problem. You came just in time. See if you can save the trouble of the Stone Fist Village.”
Chen Rui and Zola followed Finoia into the woods. Along the way, they encountered some treants and warriors from the elf tribe. After passing through the woods, they saw a huge basin, where the Stone Fist Village of the forest hobbit was located.
“So you helped the mountain hobbit and the cave hobbit solve the crisis and came to the Stone Fist Village to warn them?” Finoia listened to Chen Rui talking about the experience of the Black Rock Mountain, and he lamented, “Unfortunately, you are still a step late.”
Chen Rui thought of the appearance of the elf army, and he had a bad feeling in his mind, “Could it be that the forest hobbits have…”
“Look at me… I’ve been so busy because of the hobbit matter these past few days, so I can’t talk normally.” Finoia patted his head, “It’s not as bad as you think. Although the forest hobbits have been deceived by the fallen cave hobbits and were almost completely controlled, the prophet of the elf tribe foresees the erosion of the Jade Forest Sea by evil forces. After a period of investigation, we set our target at the Stone Fist Village. Last night, the super-level guardian of the elf tribe was dispatched to rescue the imprisoned Forest Hobbit King Ebeck, then we launched a long-awaited raid on the Stone Fist Village, taking complete control of the area, destroying the evil altar and capturing all the fallen ones in one fell swoop.”
It seems that the elf tribe is still quite strong. They are able to detect the existence of the Abyss power and control the forest hobbit in one fell swoop. Chen Rui breathed a sigh of relief, “So that’s the case. What happened to Bernd?”
“Many of the forest hobbits were eroded by an evil power and lost themselves. Although Bernd was not eroded, he was seriously injured in the battle…” Speaking of this old friend, Finoia’s mood suddenly became low, ” Now the therapist of the elf tribe is taking care of the wound. His condition is very bad. I wonder if you can save him.”
Chen Rui was taken aback, “Take me to him immediately.”
The forest hobbit had lived in the Jade Forest Sea for many years and respected the power of nature. Except for the outer city walls, most of the buildings inside were round houses built on trees or vegetation. Many of these houses were damaged in the battle last night, and there were traces of fierce battles along the way. Chen Rui followed Finoia and quickly entered the palace of the forest hobbit. The temporary emergency room was set up in the palace hall.
The palace hall was full of wounded hobbits and elves while the emergency room of the main hall was full of the seriously wounded.
Chen Rui saw the old hobbit, Bernd, wrapped in thick gauze and undergoing magic treatment at first glance. He walked over quickly, “Bernd!”
Beside him was an elf female magician who was treating Bernd. Seeing this stranger approaching so recklessly, she was about to reprimand him, but she saw Finoia wave his hand behind him, so she immediately remained silent.
“Is that you? Human boy.” The old hobbit raised his heavy eyelids and forced a smile, “Is there any wine? I want the best.”
Chen Rui silently took out a bottle of wine, opened the stopper, and handed it to the old hobbit.
As soon as the cork was opened, the rich wine fragrance drifted away. The wine fragrance was so strong that when the elf female magician next to him smelled it, she actually felt dizzy. The initially laying hobbits became high-spirited. Many people twitch their noses, and some people couldn’t help but ask, “What is this wine? It smells so good?”
“Ha, no matter what wine it is, it’s mine! Bring it over and give it to me to taste.” Bernd’s eyes flashed. If he wasn’t seriously injured and unable to move, he would have rushed over to drink it.
“This is the best white wine that I secretly brew, but there is only this small bottle. You drink it slowly.” Chen Rui took the special small square bottle and brought it in front of Bernd.
The elf ‘nurse’ lady couldn’t bear it any longer and shouted, “He is seriously injured now, and he has just applied herbs. How can he drink wine?!”
Before Chen Rui could speak, the hobbits who were about to die began to make noise.
“What do you elf know? Wine is the best thing!”
“No herb can compare to fine wine!”
“Being able to die in wine is the greatest happiness.”
“Such a fragrant wine. As long as you give me a drink, I will be willing to return to Mother Earth later.”
The nurse elf blushed with anger, and she was speechless for a while. The wounded elves on the side were displeased, and they quarreled with the hobbits. This didn’t look like an ‘intensive care unit’ at all.
At this moment, Bernd had already drunk a small sip of white wine. He opened his eyes, let out a breath, and his voice was a few pitch higher, “It actually has such strong afterkick! I have never drank such strong wine!”
He didn’t look like a dying patient, but Chen Rui could see that the old hobbit was seriously injured. He was just holding on with a brave spirit through wine now.
Finoia asked, “Lynn, how are the wounded?”
Lynn, the elf nurse, shook her head, “The elves are better, but the hobbits’ physique is special, so the general treatment is almost ineffective. They can only be treated with herbs, and the situation is not optimistic. This person even gave the hobbits wine to drink… …”
The elf nurse lady obviously didn’t have a good impression of the guy who interfered with the treatment. Chen Rui shrugged at Finoia and smiled. Finoia was moved to see his relaxed smile, but he didn’t say anything.
“Bernd! Give me a sip of your wine!” Cried the wounded black bearded hobbit leaning on the chair.
“Ebeck, don’t even think about it! Even if you are my brother, the king of the forest hobbit, don’t even think about taking the last sip of wine from me!” Bernd sneered coldly.
Only then did Chen Rui know that the black bearded hobbit was Ebeck, the king of the forest hobbit, and he was actually Bernd’s brother. He walked over with the white wine, and Bernd yelled, “Come back! I haven’t had enough! This is the last bottle of wine in my life!”
Chen Rui took a few steps, looked back and smiled, “Bernd, my friend, I can guarantee this is definitely not the last bottle of wine in your life.”
Soon after, the wounded outside walked into the hall and gathered together under the call of Finoia and Ebeck. This was naturally Chen Rui’s request.
Chen Rui estimated the range and walked to the center of the wounded with the Crown of Thorns on his head. A soft white light spread out in all directions. Wherever the white light passed, the wounded felt their bodies lighten, and their injuries began to heal quickly. Even the hobbits, who were quite resistant to magic, felt the same.
[Divine Healing]——The most powerful healing. No potential hidden danger of exhaustion. Fundamentally repair the wounds of the soul and body, promote the power of regeneration. Could be used once after every hour. (Multiple objects could be locked)
After the white light subsided, the wounded all showed surprised expressions. Especially those who were supposed to be seriously injured, many of them stood up by themselves. Lynn and other elf therapists were stunned.
Finoia was overjoyed and kept nodding. Chen Rui no doubt has a way!
