Unknowingly, 1 month had passed.
Chen Rui still lived in the Holy Light Hall. In the eyes of everyone in the church, he was now completely accustomed to the life of the church.
It was much more leisurely than when he was a lord. Not only leisurely, but also monotonous.
There were no cumbersome things in the previous estate, and there was no power struggle in the palace (on the surface). He just trained behind closed doors every day; he even rarely strolled around the Holy Light City.
Chen Rui went to the Light Divinity Temple for 2 hours a day to realize the creation origin and he had benefited tremendously during this time.
‘Creation’ and ‘destruction’ were diametrically opposite powers. Having already mastered the origin of the destruction, he would inevitably have traces of destruction in his knowledge and habits, but it was precisely the biggest obstacle to comprehending creation power. The deeper he went, the more he felt so.
It was not only Chen Rui who had this difficulty, but also Python. In this case, although they had different motives, the 2 still exchanged each other’s comprehension from time to time out of common interests, so as to better grasp the creation power.
However, what surprised Python was that Chen Rui’s comprehension of creation origin seemed to be faster than her, the peak stage Pseudo-God!
Python already knew that the predecessor of 3 holy relics was the container of creation origin, which should be the biggest reason for Chen Rui’s rapid progress. Therefore, she also secretly coveted these 3 holy relics, especially the Holy Grail. Since Chen Rui put Veronica’s remnant soul in the Holy Grail, he had not let Python enter the Holy Grail to nourish her soul, but the 3 holy relics already ‘acknowledged’ Chen Rui. Even if she killed Chen Rui, she might not be able to get the power of the 3 holy relics.
In fact, the reason why Chen Rui had this kind of advancement was not only because of the 3 holy relics, but also the special functions of [Deep Analysis] and the Tree of Nature.
Although only for 2 hours a day, apart from Chen Rui’s comprehension in front of the Hall of Light, [Deep Analysis] could continue [Analysis] after he returned to absorb the special insights in the memory imprint. Coupled with the time of super training ground law, he had hundreds of times more time to comprehend every day compared to Python.
As for the Tree of Nature, it was an unexpected surprise. In the last battle at the Silver Moon Celestial Capital’s Tree of Nature, Chen Rui boldly used the destruction law to perform inverse deductions at the juncture of life and death, so he comprehended a seed with little creation origin, and formed his own law rudiment.
This ‘seed’ came from the ‘wood’ main card given by the legendary prophet and the Tree of Nature. The Tree of Nature provided the creation origin with a good ‘development platform’ to guide the growth of the creation origin, which had a multiplier effect.
With this advantage, Chen Rui’s true comprehension of the creation origin was even above the level shown to Python. However, this did not mean that Chen Rui could exert a power beyond Python. After all, even if he activated [Red Pole Star Transformation], he only had the combat power of the Demi-God level. In front of Python, the peak stage Pseudo-God, he was still an existence that could be easily obliterated – Even if Python was in a damaged soul state.
Python might not know how much Chen Rui really comprehended the creation origin, but she was very clear that no matter what, the current value of the other party was maximized now, so it was not appropriate to turn hostile against him. Therefore, Python showed a considerable degree of friendliness, praised Chen Rui’s wit, and pointed out Isabella’s as well as Zola’s training problems from time to time.
Especially Isabella, who basically digested the ‘Holy Scale’ gifted by Dragon Emperor Pagris, had faintly touched the edge of kingdomization with Python’s guidance. Zola’s Demi-God level power had also been further consolidated.
According to the agreement between the 2 parties, Python would help Chen Rui truly control the power of the ‘Tower of Glory’.
Generally speaking, the higher the level of the artifact, the more it could enhance or multiply the user’s own strength. Not only the power of the artifact itself, but many artifacts also use special powers.
Artifacts had different functions and could not be judged purely by their destructive power. The rarest ones were space artifacts.
In terms of destructive power alone, the Tower of Glory was not as good as a rudimentary artifact like Thunder Flail, but its role was not just destruction; the most important thing was ‘space’.
In the last Light Divinity Temple fight, if Chen Rui had a destructive artifact like Thunder Flail, he wouldn’t be able to escape from Michael’s mighty might even if he could really fully control the artifact.
Dragon Emperor Pagris once said that the Tower of Glory belonged to the rarest space artifact and had 3 major abilities. The first was ‘space barrier’, which used the power of space as a barrier to divert and block the enemy’s attack.
The second was the ‘space shuttle’, a long-distance space shuttle that breaks through the space seal and performs a random space shuttle. Due to lack of strength, Chen Rui could not launch this function, but the last time he only used Python’s Pseudo-God’s soul imprint to control the artifact, he broke through the space seal in front of the Light Divinity Temple before activating the [Star Gate] to escape successfully.
The third was the ‘kingdom merging’ that integrated the kingdom to form a special life space which could carry a large number of life entities for space transfer. Not to mention the size of this space far exceeded the general storage items, just the function or storing life for space transfer was fundamentally different from the storage item.
Compared with the ‘space barrier’, what Chen Rui needed more was ‘space shuttle’ and ‘kingdom merging’. ‘Space shuttle’ allowed him to break through the space seal like last time and use the [Star Gate] at critical moments to save his life whereas ‘kingdom merging’ enabled him to escape with people who had no star conferring – Although the ability of star conferring was superb, it had been proved by practice that in order to form a sculpture that could be integrated with the original body on the Star Conferring Platform, the person must get the [Star-level Enhancement] for at least 1 month. Not only that, the star conferring and spiritual link slots were limited. If the other party was unwilling to establish a spiritual link or had a contract, it would be even more impossible to achieve.
The radiance of the Bloody Ring was still strong, indicating that Tiffany was safe now, but it was not an easy task to complete Raizen’s entrustment.
Chen Rui had had an intersection with Eudora before. With the experience of Isabella 100 years ago, he had a clearer concept of Her Holiness Holy Lady. I wonder whether Tiffany is by her side is a disaster or a blessing. I’m sure that Tiffany’s obsession with her mother is very deep. It may be difficult to convince her to return to the Demon Realm.
After the creation origin matter is over, I shall try to contact her for a while longer. If necessary, use the power of the Tower of Glory.
However, the Tower of Glory was not something that ordinary people could activate. It required the power of Pseudo-God to play a real role. The last time Chen Rui used the Tower of Glory with the soul imprint he got from Python. This was a genuine peak stage Pseudo-God soul imprint. First, Python gave him 5 copies, and he distributed it to the girls in the harem. Later, in the Holy Light Mountain, in order to win him over, Python also gave him the last 5 copies. Chen Rui used 1 when he escaped in front of the Hall of Light, another for the enhanced version of Brilliant Thunder of Light, and there were 3 left now.
Python’s method was to show him how to use soul imprint to activate the true power of the Tower of Glory. After consuming a soul imprint, Chen Rui could barely activate the ‘kingdom merging’ power of the Tower of Glory. After the experiment, he could carry Isabella and Zola to shuttle through the [Star Gate], but the time was very limited. It could only last for less than 10 minutes, and they would be automatically rejected by the space. However, if it was to enter the [Star Gate] and escape, 10 seconds would be enough. It was necessary to take precautions before it happened. Although there was no flaw in Python’s ‘pointers’, Chen Rui instinctively felt that it was not so simple, especially if this kind of soul imprint came from Python herself. He was very aware of Python’s mean. In this Holy Light Mountain, it was the safest to be under the eyes of Raphael, and even Michael and Gabriel, the 3 archangels. Once he left the Holy Light Mountain or when Python completely comprehended the creation origin, she would certainly show her true colors. Everything must be prevented before it happens, and precautions must be taken in advance.
Python didn’t know that the Tower of Glory had actually become an ‘exclusive item’ of Chen Rui through [Deep Analysis] a long time ago. However, Chen Rui’s current strength was not enough to exert the power of the Tower of Glory. If Python wanted to play around in the Tower of Glory, it would bring unexpected ‘surprises’.
During this period, Chen Rui used the identity of the Holy Child to put forward various resource requirements to Pope Vantis under the justification of ‘integrating spiritual imprint’ and using Raphael’s name. These were mainly magic materials needed for Zola’s training, wind element materials for Isabella’s training, a large number of rare light element materials, and various materials needed for the ‘City of Stars’ upgrade.
Although Vantis was quite surprised by the type and quantity of these supplies and materials, since it was the will of the Supreme Angel Raphael, he naturally did not dare to neglect. The background of the Holy Church was quite astonishing. Except for some extremely uncommon material on the list requested by Chen Rui, the rest was available.
Most of the light element materials were used in the Holy Grail because the Holy Grail could accelerate the recovery effect by sacrificing light power. Under this sacrifice regardless of the cost, Veronica’s initial fragmented soul began to gather and recover little by little. Although there was still quite some time before full recovery, he finally saw hope.
One day, Raphael came again, and Chen Rui reported his ‘fusion progress’ to Raphael. Raphael noticed that the original Warrior (Higher Demon) had actually entered Saint level. Although it was only a Pseudo-Saint (Demon Emperor), this speed was also quite amazing. It appeared that ‘Arthur’s’ attempt in merging the ‘spiritual imprint’ was quite successful.
Later, Chen Rui made a bottle of the most basic ‘True series potion’ black potions in front of Raphael, indicating that he had now initially mastered some abilities of the potion grand master. Over time, he would definitely be able to produce higher-grade black potions.
Raphael was always arrogant. He never thought that he had been played by this ‘ant’ with tricks, so he didn’t doubt him. Instead, he was quite satisfied instead.
“Very well, your progress is still higher than expected. Tomorrow, you can go to the Holy Blessing Summit.”
After leaving this sentence, Raphael’s figure disappeared into the air.
