Chapter 1085: Hungry Bird
Chen Rui got to know from Kia that Duoduo’s appetite seemed to have increased since a few days ago. By yesterday, it had risen to an astonishing level. Even when she was sleeping, she would wake up from hunger and cry for something to eat.
Today, Kia and Alice took Duoduo to the streets and came back from a big meal. Unexpectedly, just after returning home, the little girl was already hungry.
This was not normal and not some kind of ‘Hungry Bird’ game. Both Chen Rui and Catherine sensed that the breath on Duoduo was becoming more and more disordered. They couldn’t help but to be worried.
After eating a lot of food, the little girl was still not full. She just cried out that she was hungry.
“Right!” Chen Rui suddenly thought of Duoduo’s situation when he was in the human world. With a shift of mind, he took out a fire element red crystal, “Duoduo…”
Before he could finish speaking, the little baby flew over happily, took the crystal, and touched it with her small hand. The fire element power of the crystal was rapidly weakening, and it had become transparent in the blink of an eye before it disappeared into powder.
Chen Rui clearly sensed that the chaotic breath had calmed down a little, and he finally understood it. He hurriedly took out a few more pieces.
In the blink of an eye, the fire element crystal was once again absorbed.
“Daddy, Duoduo still wants to eat…”
“It’s not called eating… Baby, it’s called absorbing energy.” Chen Rui simply took out all the fire-related things in the storage warehouse and piled them up into a hill. Some of them were even valuable materials, but for the sake of his precious daughter, there was nothing he couldn’t let go.
Duoduo looked dazzlingly at the pile of fire element crystals and items, and pounced toward them, “Daddy is really amazing!”
Seeing her daughter happily rolling around in the crystals and materials, Chen Rui felt relieved.
“Duoduo should have grown to a certain stage that needs a lot of fire energy, so she keeps feeling hungry.” Chen Rui’s words made everyone breathe a sigh of relief.
“Boss…” Olypheus looked at the sparkling crystals, “Those things are expensive!”
“Of course they are.” Lalaria, who was also a dragon and had a strong appreciation ability, also had sparkling eyes, “That is a red flame crystal, that is a fire dragon garnet. What is that? Could it be… the legendary Ultimate Flame Mist Heart?”
Olypheus hurriedly asked, “Is that kind of heart so valuable?”
“It’s priceless that can buy a city! Wait a minute! Duoduo, that…” Lalaria’s voice trembled because she just saw the priceless Ultimate Flame Mist Heart turned into a dull waste crystal in Ms. Duoduo’s hands.
The flat-chested loli revealed a painful face. A city was ‘eaten’ like this.
“It’s worth a city?” Ms. Black Dragon’s eyes were full of black crystal coins shaking, and she immediately approached Chen Rui, “Boss, I’m hungry too. I want to eat too. No, absorb energy…”
Chen Rui, “…”
Chen Rui’s optimism didn’t last long. A few hours later, the hill-like fire crystal and magic materials were all swallowed up by Duoduo.
The little girl absorbed so much fire element power, but she didn’t feel full at all. In fact, she was still hungry. Chen Rui also noticed the disordered breath on Duoduo had not completely stabilized. Apparently, the absorbed energy was still not enough.
Athena made an immediate decision, “Kia, ask Ina to immediately take people to various markets and magic stores in the estate to buy fire element materials; the more the better! No limit on the cost!”
Kia responded and hurried out.
“Duoduo, how do you feel…” Catherine hugged Duoduo nervously. Even Her Majesty Empress who had always been wise could not help but panic at this moment.
“Mommy, I’m not full. I’m still hungry.” The little girl looked at Catherine with puppy eyes.
“Hold on, Duoduo, Aunt Kia and Aunt Ina will bring something for you to eat in a while.” Chen Rui coaxed his daughter, but his gaze seemed more and more worried, because what he just took out from the storage warehouse were extremely precious materials. In comparison, the fire element materials in the Dark Moon are far inferior in quality and quantity, I’m afraid…
No doubt, after Kia and Ina successively obtained a large number of fire element materials, it was still far from enough after being absorbed by Duoduo.
It was night by now, and the lamp spirits served dinner. Because of the concern about Duoduo’s condition, everyone barely ate anything at noon. Now it was almost dinner time, but no one had any appetite. Only Athena, who was pregnant, was forced to eat some by Catherine.
Feeling that the breath on Duoduo was becoming more and more unstable, Chen Rui gritted his teeth and took out an item from the storage warehouse. As soon as this item appeared, the surrounding suddenly became hot.
This was a diamond-shaped red stone with spectacular power. At first glance, it gave the illusion of burning, but in fact, it was not a complete illusion. If it weren’t for Chen Rui’s ability to insulate most of the item’s power, everything nearby would have been set ablaze in that terrifying heat.
The fire origin fragment.
The fire origin fragment was the trophy that Chen Rui got when he fought against Dillosro. Under the power of his final blow of [All Star Gods View], Dillosro annihilated and disappeared. The fire origin fragment that was used to fuse into Despair Flame was obtained by Chen Rui.
The fire origin fragment was a special item that could only be activated by the Elemental King. It had great power. Chen Rui didn’t know what effect it would have on Duoduo. He originally planned to go to the human world and give it to the Fire Elemental King Ogmarton as promised, but at this moment, he couldn’t care too much anymore.
Duoduo clearly sensed the power of the fire origin fragment. Her big eyes flashed with curiosity and surprise as she reached out and grabbed the stone.
Chen Rui was relieved to see that Duoduo was not affected by the power of high temperature. After the fire origin fragment fell into Duoduo’s hands, the terrifying high temperature immediately turned into a gentle feeling.
There was no doubt that the power of the fire origin fragment was strong. No matter how Duoduo absorbed the power, the fire element breath had not weakened in the slightest.
Duoduo didn’t cry hunger anymore. She held the fire origin fragment and played for a while. Soon, she fell asleep on Chen Rui’s body.
Looking at her daughter’s peaceful little face after she fell asleep, Chen Ruin sensed that the chaotic breath had finally calmed down, so he finally let go of his tense mind.
Even in sleep, Duoduo’s hands were still holding the fire origin fragment tightly.
“Leave her to me.” Catherine took Duoduo from Chen Rui’s hand, “I’ll take her to rest for a while.”
Chen Rui nodded, and the lamp spirit guards led Catherine into the back bedroom.
Seeing that Duoduo was fine, Ms. Black Dragon, who didn’t dare to create trouble, also regained her vitality. She shouted that she was about to starve to death some time ago, and that she hadn’t tasted the Dark Moon’s food for a long time, so she proposed to go to the Princess Retail Store to feast and also share the ‘miraculous’ adventure in the Dead Sea previously.
As the host and good friend, Alice naturally couldn’t refuse. She cast her expectant eyes on Chen Rui, but Chen Rui looked at Athena and shrugged apologetically to Princess Loli. Kia rolled her eyes and excused herself, saying that she was too tired after taking care of a certain ‘hungry bird’ last night, so she needed to take a nap. In the end, she also stayed.
Princess Loli pouted her mouth in dissatisfaction. Unable to withstand the desperate push of Ms. Black Dragon, who wanted to eat free meals, she brought Adeline, Lalaria and Olypheus to form a team of ‘anti big-breasted friends’ in the end. They headed toward the Dark Moon’s Princess Retail Store.
“Why don’t you accompany Alice?” Athena looked at Chen Rui who was sitting beside her, “Don’t you see that she misses you so much?”
“Don’t you see that I miss you all too?” Chen Rui wrapped his arms around her waist and waved to Kia. A certain succubus who had just yawned and said that she wanted to make up for her sleep immediately appeared beside him in high spirits.
“The word ‘all’ is used too forcibly.” The little succubus cuddled Chen Rui with Athena with a joyful look on her face, but her tone was sighing resentfully.
Chen Rui scratched the succubus’s nose in annoyance, “if that’s what you are saying, then I have to remove the word ‘all’. Athena, let’s find a quiet place to chat alone.”
“You’re too petty. Kia is just joking.” Athena backed her good sister. She was appreciative of Kia who was busy taking care of her and Duoduo these days.
“Hmph Hmph! Athena is the best. Much better than the heartless man.” While the little maid said so, she moved her hand to a certain part of the man intentionally.
Chen Rui hurriedly grabbed the bold hand, “Being so naughty so soon? Can’t we just chat quietly?”
“Oh, right. It should be Athena’s turn today.” The little succubus said to Athena secretly, “Hey, madam lord, let’s discuss. Shall we change tonight?”
“Change what?” Athena blushed and asked knowingly.
“Hehe, why don’t you add me in? I’ll give it back to you next time when it’s my turn?” The little succubus became particularly energetic when she mentioned threesome.
“Stop fooling around. What do you take me for?” Chen Rui slapped succubus on the hip, “I said to chat quietly, and that’s all you have in your mind?”
The little succubus gave him a wink, leaned into his ear and said, “Then after for that ‘chat quietly’ is finished, the 3 of us will concentrate and study this in depth, okay?”
Chen Rui felt that Kia actually licked his earlobe while he was talking, and his hairs stood up. He couldn’t help but feel aroused for a moment, and there was a faint instinctive reaction in a certain part. Obviously, this sultry little succubus used the talent of seduction just now.
Next, Chen Rui spoke out about the experience of this adventure. Gradually, even Kia was fascinated by it.
“Chen Rui, you just said that the City of Stars has now become a… ‘flying ship’?”
“That’s right, it’s like in those space stories I told you before. In the future, when everything settles down, we will completely put aside the mundane things at hand and take the Star Ship to sail to various places, including the universe, okay?”
“En…” Both Athena and Kia couldn’t help expressing their longing.
At this moment, Catherine’s anxious voice sounded, “Chen Rui, come quickly!”
Chen Rui reacted immediately and appeared in the bedroom in an instant.
Duoduo’s eyes closed tightly while she was holding the fire origin fragment and shivering. She was shouting, “It’s so cold!”
As soon as Chen Rui touched his daughter’s body, he felt as cold as ice. He couldn’t help but be startled, “What’s going on?”
“I don’t know. Duoduo just slept for a while, then she started to cry cold. I tried to remove the red stone, and her body became even colder.”
Chen Rui tried inputting some power support, but nothing worked.
“What should we do?” Catherine looked anxious and at a loss, completely losing her usual calmness. Now she was not the Demon Realm’s top sage or empress; she was just an ordinary mother.
“Duoduo has the fire attribute physique, why is this happening? Could it be a mutation caused by the fire origin fragment? As of now, there is only one way.” Chen Rui took a deep breath, “Go find the master of the fire origin fragment.”
“I’ll come too!” Catherine hugged her daughter tightly.
TL: With she grows into dual element of ice and fire physique?
