The moon and stars were bright and quiet.

Originally, it was expected that it would only take one day to solve the problem. Unexpectedly, there was a little accident in the end.

The cunning Mephisto did not appear. Instead, the first generation Ghost Rider Carter Slade suddenly appeared. This completely disrupted Lod’s future arrangements, so he could only choose to stay in Texas for two more days.

Thinking that it was not easy to go on a business trip, Lod did not intend to wrong himself.

He directly went to Dallas Carlton Hotel, located in the most luxurious suite on the top floor, and it was the kind that did not need to pay.

After all, for death god, money in human society was meaningless.

With his current influence, he only needed to reveal a little bit of his thoughts to S. H. I. E. L. D., and Nick Fury would probably laugh out loud if he knew. Then, he would pile endless money into a mountain in front of him.

After setting up a formation to avoid disturbing Kido outside the room, Lod walked into the luxury suite.

The furnishings and structure of the entire room were more inclined to the traditional style of Texas, but on top of this foundation, there was also a modern style. The bed sheets, blanket, sofa, and other colors were warm. The huge floor-to-ceiling window was the night scene in the downtown of Dallas, and the bustling streets and Victoria Park could be seen.

After washing up, Lod walked out of the bathroom in a bathrobe and poured himself a glass of ice water. Then he came to the huge French window and admired the bustling commercial street below.

Beep, beep, beep —

The black Hell’s Butterfly flapped his wings and landed on Lod’s shoulder.

“Brother, how are things on your side?”

Nemu’s tender voice came from Hell’s Butterfly. From her tone, it was obvious that she was worried about him.

“It’s alright, but I miscalculated.” Lod shook his head and sighed, “Mephisto did not appear at all, so I still need to stay here for a few more days. Soul Society will temporarily leave it to you and Kisuke Urahara.”

“Don’t worry, brother. With me here, there will be no problem for Soul Society!” Nemu promised.

Hearing this, Lod could not help but smile. The image of Nemu straightening her chest and patting her chest to guarantee him appeared in his mind. He smiled, “I don’t need to worry about Soul Society. By the way, how are Grimmjow and Gwen?”

“They found traces of the remnant page of the Divine Book of Darkness in Scandinavia and are tracking the source.” As Nemu spoke, he suddenly burst into laughter and said, “Brother, you don’t know how angry Grimmjow was after knowing that he had been played. His hair is all blown up!”

“We were all fooled… we had no choice.” Lod pinched the space between his eyebrows and said helplessly.

Originally, everyone thought that Haschwalth had an accident in Thorvia, which was why Grimmjow and Gwen went to investigate, but they did not expect to be fooled by Mephistopheles.

The real Haschwalth was in Texas, which led to the two people rushing over and missing, so he simply made the mistake and let the two of them retrieve the remnant pages of the Dark Book, and he came to Texas to meet Mephisto.

“Brother, you have to be careful. Mephistois not simple. If you really can’t do it, then use that thing.” Nemu said worriedly. She had seen the great power of the archangelwith her own eyes, and knew that Mephistowould not be inferior to the archangel.

“En, don’t worry.” Lod agreed.

The two of them chatted for a while longer.

During this time, they also asked about the progress of Kisuke Urahara’s research.

After listening to Nemu’s description, they could only say one thing – as expected of Kisuke Urahara!

It had only been a short seven days since he was summoned. Kisuke Urahara had already completed more than half of his research on transforming souls. The only things left were the improvements and optimization.

If nothing unexpected happened, when he returned, the first batch of trial

But the only regret is…

As for how to forge ‘Asauchi’, Kisuke Urahara still had no idea.

It was not as simple as he had imagined that he wanted to forge an Asauchi that was suitable for death god’s soul and could evolve along with it!

However, if he thought about it carefully, there was nothing wrong with the high difficulty.

If it was that easy to forge, the Nimaiya would not have advanced to become a member of Zero Division with this contribution.

After hanging up the connection, Lod frowned and could not help but fall into deep thought.

As a scientist, Kisuke Urahara was excellent, but he knew nothing about how to forge weapons. It seemed that he must be professional in forging.

Just as Lod was thinking about how he should bring Tony Stark back, he suddenly felt a strange fluctuation in the space behind him. An extremely evil aura spread in the room like a shadow!

Weng —

Space rippled in the air, and then an old man with a golden back.

The old man wore a black striped suit and held a golden cane in his hand. He leisurely appeared in the room. The unique smell of sulfur from his body undoubtedly revealed his identity. He was a visitor from hell!

Lod slowly put down the cup in his hand, then calmly turned around and said coldly, “I’ve been looking for you for a long time, Mephisto.”

“It’s an honor to finally meet you.”

As a demon, Mephisto’s attitude was quite gentle, and he did not even have the slightest bit of arrogance. He said in a very gentlemanly manner, “I dealt with some family matters during the day, so I didn’t come to see you in time.”

“I don’t like to beat around the bush, so I’d better get straight to the point.” Lod was expressionless and said indifferently, “I’ll give you two choices now. Either let my people go, or let me cut off your avatar, and then take my people away.”

“Well… it sounds good.”

Mephisto revealed a strange smile. “But unfortunately, I want to choose the third one. If you help me, I will let your people go. What do you think?”

“I refuse.”

A dangerous light flashed in Lod’s eyes, and Spiritual Power seemed to be boiling around him.

“Wow, I advise you to calm down.”

Mephisto took an exaggerated step back, and then raised his cane to hit the ground.

Bang –

There was a crack in the floor of the room, and below it was a burning hell, and Haschwalth was trapped inside!

“What is in front of you is just a powerless clone. So before you kill me, you better think it over first.” Mephisto’s eyes flashed with an inexplicable look, and he said faintly, “You are also a Lord of hell. You should know that without my permission, no soul can escape from hell.”

Lod’s eyes flashed fiercely. After a moment of silence, he said, “Tell me your request.”

Mephisto revealed a victorious smile on his face and said, “I hope that you can help me expel the Black Heart Demon from the human world.”

Lod glanced at Mephisto and said, “The transaction should be equal. Then what price are you going to pay?”

“The Contract of San Venganza. I think this reward should be enough to satisfy you, right?” Mephisto held his cane and revealed a sly smile like an old fox.

Lod revealed a meaningful smile. “I hope that we can cooperate well.”

In fact, he knew very well that Mephisto must not have any good intentions in the deal.

With this old swindler’s treacherous and cunning character, he would definitely not use the Contract of San Venganza as a reward.

But it did not matter…

Because from the beginning, he had never intended to follow the rules that Mephisto had set!
