Chapter 767: Our Future
Chen Rui was sitting in the s.p.a.ce of a magic carriage which was a gift from Catherine to Shea. Inside was an exquisite room where one couldn’t feel the b.u.mps outside. Chen Rui was no stranger to this kind of s.p.a.ce item. When he first met Catherine, he was once a prisoner in the carriage.
Sitting on the sofa in the lobby, Chen Rui reminisced about the scene of meeting with Catherine before leaving the Dark Shadow Empire palace.
“I’m really confused.” Catherine’s gaze revealed unabashed doubts, “It is undeniable that if we go deeper, your so-called empire alliance is not an illusion. Maybe… I mean ‘maybe’ it can become a system that makes the Demon Realm truly peaceful and united, but what I can’t figure out is that a human makes the Demon Realm, a mortal enemy, united and powerful. What is your real purpose? Unify first and then control?”
“You think too much.” Chen Rui smiled bitterly, “I never thought about controlling the Demon Realm. I’m just a lazy guy who wants to sleep peacefully with his women in his arms.”
“You should know that the stronger the Demon Realm, the greater the threat to the human world, especially the kingdom of this alliance. The biggest conflict will turn from the inside to the outside. When the Demon Realm no longer has a corresponding enemy, then this foreign enemy can only be human. Are you a n.o.ble family abandoned by the human world and want to lead the Demon Realm army to destroy the human world in revenge after more than 100 years?”
“Your imagination is too rich.” Chen Rui shook his head, “Have you ever considered why the Demon Realm and the human world must be at war? Even as the legend says, the Demon Realm covets the suns.h.i.+ne and richness of the human world. Then, if the prosperity of the Demon Realm reaches the same level as or even beyond that of the human world, is this endless war necessary to continue? As for the suns.h.i.+ne… I don’t think the demons that have fully adapted to 2 moons will be better off with suns.h.i.+ne. There is one thing worth noting though. Judging from the information revealed by Midnight Sun, the war between humans and the Demon Realm does not seem to be that simple. Fortunately, there are still more than 100 years and we have plenty of time to investigate and plan many things, including our future.”
“It’s ‘your’.” Catherine’s gaze lowered from behind the veil, “It’s not ‘our’”
“It must be ‘our’!” Chen Rui showed a firm expression.
“Chen Rui, what are you thinking?”
Shea’s voice on the side interrupted Chen Rui’s memory. Chen Rui came back to his senses and smiled, “It’s nothing… Do you think I’m a little self-a.s.sertive this time? Especially the agreement with Raizen’s 2 years armistice, and also the terms that might make the Fallen Angel Empire pa.s.sive?”
“What we need most now is to fight for time for recuperation and development, and I can feel that your intentions are more than that. Perhaps you have your own plans… I have never doubted the cunning and treacherousness of a human.” A smile appeared on Shea’s face with rare wisdom which was bright and beautiful without the usual indifference and majesty.
“I have to say that your vocabulary of derogatory words far exceeds that of praise words.” Chen Rui grinned and held her hand. “2 years… As long as you give me 2 years, everything will change. Those terms will have unexpected effects. No matter which aspect, the initiative will be firmly in our hands.”
Shea was a little surprised. The answer was far above her expectations, but she did not doubt what Chen Rui said because it was the man’s plan that changed the dilapidated Dark Moon Estate and the whole Fallen Angel Empire. This time, the Demon Realm would change too.
“Then… I’ll wait and see.”
“I have a multiple choice question.” Chen Rui couldn’t help but blurt out as he thought of those peaceful black eyes.
“Nothing”…” Chen Rui rubbed his nose, “It’s just a man’s d.a.m.n vanity.”
“Then, you have underestimated the curiosity of women.” Shea smiled slightly, “I want to hear your multiple choice question.”
“Well, it’s just a whim and boring question.” Chen Rui looked into her eyes, “If 1 day, you can only choose 1 between the empire and I, which 1 would you choose?”
Shea’s smile solidified on her face as her eyes dimmed instantly, “If I can, I hope I never have this opportunity to choose.”
“Sorry, I shouldn’t ask this kind of b.a.s.t.a.r.d question.” Chen Rui felt Shea’s depression and knocked on his head, “This question is absurd as the question of falling into the river at the same time. The guy who asked this question should be kicked into the river. I’m out of my mind just now. Don’t worry about it.”
“No, this is an unavoidable question. I should be the one who apologises. Between you and I, I’m too selfish. I’m not greedy for power, but as a ruler who carries the hope of all the people of the empire, I can’t give up my responsibility. I…”
“I understand.” Chen Rui kissed her on the forehead, “You have never given up your responsibility, just like… you abandoned your past to become a cold lord.”
Just like her.
Shea gently leaned on his shoulder, “All I can do is to trust you without reservation. Even if…”
“There is no ‘even’ Shea, believe me, we will never face such a choice. I will always be by your side. “
The 2 embraced without more words; there was only warm peace.
Shea suddenly raised her head with a shy blush, “Maybe there is another way like ‘inheritor’.”
Chen Rui’s eyes lit up, “Yes, it’s time to plan our future. It seems that in order to realize this way, we still have 1 very important thing that we haven’t finished? Ouch…”
Obviously, a certain mischievous hand was punished by Her Majesty Empress.
On the tower of the Dark Shadow Empire palace, another Royal Majesty Empress watched the carriage of the Fallen Angel Empire’s envoy team that was going away. She was silent for a long time.

After a long while, she sighed faintly, “Liliz, if there is 1 person who would rather subvert the whole…”
Shea had the t.i.tle of ‘Iceberg Princess’ when she was at the Dark Moon, plus a series of fearful Blood and Iron Policy after ascending to the empress throne, but Her Majesty Empress’ beauty was indeed a well-known across the empire. Even if she wasn’t as beautiful as the top beauty of the Dark Shadow Empire, it was not far away. Many men were full of jealousy, envy and hatred for Aguile who could get the empress. For ‘Aguile’ or the Fallen Angel Empire, the wedding with the empress was a big happy event, but for a guy in the crystal harem, it meant the beginning of trouble.
Athena, “Greetings to Your Highness Prince Consort!”
Kia, “Your Highness Prince Consort, can I help you?”
Isabella, “Hey, it turns out to be Your Highness Prince Consort…”
Paglio, “Wow, the cunning Royal Highness Prince Consort is here.”
Roman, “That… Your Highness Leader.”
Olypheus, “Bo… Your Highness Prince Consort! My sister made me call you like this!”
Chen Rui: This has been going on for 3 days. Whether it is Athena, Kia, Zola or Isabella, no one bothered me. When they see me, they just greet this t.i.tle respectfully, then they stay away.
The male protagonist in the harem who was singing every night suddenly fell into the predicament of guarding the vacant house alone. This huge gap made the male protagonist burst into tears.
Obviously, the upcoming wedding to Shea had an undoubtedly huge impact for the rest of the harem.
Chen Rui knew in his mind that it was unfair to just determine the status with Shea for those girls who had no less or even more affection and devotion than Shea, so Chen Rui made a decision.
In the name of Chen Rui, propose to the girls!
TL: Catherine is pregnant? That’s a great news!
