Chen Rui stood up from the throne and looked at Veronica in front of him with a burst of surprise.
When Veronica broke free from Quilliana’s control, she almost lost her soul. Although the soul fragments were kept in the Holy Grail, and later a lot of light was sacrificed to speed up the recovery, she only managed to recover a part of it.
In this case, even if she recovered, she might not be able to fully return to her previous consciousness.
However, from the current state of Veronica, it is clear that she has fully recovered. Is it the effect of the power of ‘creation’? Or is it caused by the mysterious power generated by the qualitative change of the Super System?
What made Chen Rui even more puzzled was that all ‘outsiders’ who entered the Super System would be rejected without exception, and they could not appear in this Galaxy Divinity Temple. Even star conferred Zola and Isabella could only move around within the Star Conferring Platform.
How could Veronica appear in this great hall intact and not get attacked?
Chen Rui looked at Veronica, and relevant information automatically appeared in his mind.
Divinity Temple Servant (Can perform star conferring).
Soul Strength: SS+
Special attribute —— Heart servant: Maintain absolute awe of the controller and put an end to all violations of will. (Can cancel or bestow)
Heart sacrifice: The controller can sacrifice or obliterate the servant.
Authority – Currently unavailable (Can cancel or bestow)
Ability – Currently unavailable (Can cancel or bestow)
Divinity Temple Servent?
Chen Rui was taken aback by this new term. No wonder Veronica was not rejected. It turned out that she actually became the ‘servant’ of the Galaxy Divinity Temple?
“Arthur?” Veronica’s voice interrupted Chen Rui’s thoughts.
“I… Shouldn’t be considered the original ‘Little Arthur’ or ‘Arthur’.” Chen Rui didn’t plan to continue appearing in front of her as ‘Arthur’.
“Do I need to add ‘Your Highness’ or ‘Your Majesty’ after your name? I feel an irresistible majesty that I need to look up to in you, like… God. If it is not for that special thing in the soul… En, that strong emotion that should be defined as ‘attachment’ or ‘dependence’, I have already knelt before you and worship.”
Chen Rui knew that it was caused by the special attribute of ‘Heart Servant’. He immediately shifted his thought and canceled this special attribute.
No doubt, Veronica’s expression relaxed and she smiled, “It’s much better now. In fact, the name doesn’t matter anymore. I just remember who pulled me up from the Abyss with both hands. Whether ‘you’ are Arthur or Chen Rui now.”
Chen Rui nodded. He no longer tangled on this topic.
“Can you tell me where I’m now?”
“You can understand this as the ‘world’ formed by the ‘ancient heritage’ that I inherited.”
“It’s so beautiful here…” Veronica looked at the vast galaxy outside the hall as she said in admiration.
“Veronica, I’m sorry.”
“Why do you say that?” Veronica looked at Chen Rui’s apologetic face in surprise.
“I once said that I want to give you a truly free life, but I don’t know how to explain it. You may…”
“May not be able to leave this world?” Veronica continued, “I like it very much. I feel like my heart, is completely free without any bondage in this place. In the Shion Palace, when my soul completely collapsed, I felt a little warm breath amidst the daze, wrapping my scattered soul. It’s like your hands.”
Chen Rui wanted to explain that this was actually the power of Holy Grail, but when he saw that gentle gaze, he was speechless for a while.
“Every moment, I will try to remember this warmth, lest one day I will forget it because of reliving my consciousness. Until today, a voice is calling me, then I merge some great will that contains this warmth to become what I am now. I’m so lucky to be where I’m now. To finally… be able to really touch this warmth.”
Veronica stretched out her hand as if she wanted to ‘touch’ something, then she put it down, “You don’t have to explain anything, and you don’t have to worry about anything. Just like you said at the beginning: You don’t have to have it, just hoping that the other person is happy is enough. ——To be able to look at you like this is happiness.”
Chen Rui had mixed feelings for a while. He really said these words to her as ‘Little Arthur’. Now Veronica said the same words to him as Chen Rui’. The feeling in his mind was indescribable. The hint of warmth was always lingering.
“Take me around and take a look at this magnificent palace. This should be my ‘home’ in the future. I’m honored.”
“It’s me who should say ‘honor’.”
Chen Rui walked out of the main hall side by side with Veronica and visited the new upgraded palace.
“It’s unbelievable, just the breath of those flowers and trees makes my soul feel clean and comfortable.” Veronica took a few deep breaths, although this action was more out of habit for the soul, “By the way, this place… would be better if there was a pool.”
Chen Rui glanced at the open space, and there was an additional pool immediately. Veronica stepped forward in surprise and dipped the water with her hand, “It’s amazing!”
“If you like it, this small hall will serve as your resting place. If you need any changes, I can do it now.”
After setting up the small hall, the 2 walked out of the main hall all the way, but it seemed that they couldn’t find any more topics, and the atmosphere was a little awkward.
Before they knew it, they had come to the Tower of Faith, and the Tower of Faith had turned into a huge magnificent tower surrounded by a powerful faith breath.
In the Tower of Faith, in addition to benevolence, righteousness, propriety, wisdom, faith, loyalty, filial piety, honesty, shame, and bravery originally inputted by Chen Rui, there were also evil, rebelliousness, cunning, stealing, ignorance, betrayal, and so on. There was no doubt that the latter were Shura’s ‘masterpieces’.
However, Chen Rui had now seen it very clearly. In the universe, light and darkness, like creation and construction, coexist. Even people undeniably had 2 sides.
Human nature is good, human nature is evil.
The key lies in the choice and persistence of one’s heart.
Chen Rui couldn’t erase the free humanity. No matter what the person had experienced, as long as there was light and hope in his heart, even if he fell into the abyss like Veronica, he could still walk out of it one day.
In the options of the Pillar of Faith, in addition to the overall number, it also showed the invalid Pillar of Faiths, prompting ‘Can bestow ‘Oracle’ to the Divinity Temple Servant to control or rebuild”.
There were several levels of ‘Oracle’ authority. Chen Rui looked at Veronica, and he tried to bestow her highest ‘Oracle’ authority. Veronica’s body trembled, and a lot of information suddenly popped in her mind.
“Little Arthur…Um, Chen Rui.” Veronica showed a charming smile, “You seem to have given me a strange ability. If you don’t mind, I want to try it now.”
Chen Rui shrugged, “As you wish, beautiful lady. Actually, that’s what I wish too.”
Veronica walked toward the Tower of Faith and glanced at the huge tower. Her body suddenly turned into a light stream, and she went into the tower.
As the highest controller of the entire Galaxy Divinity Temple, Chen Rui could naturally grasp her movements clearly. He felt that Veronica merged with the Tower of Faith at this moment, and then, she seemed to separate a little bit of consciousness and plunged into… the vast sea of stars.
After a period of time, the Tower of Faith flashed, and Veronica appeared in front of her eyes again. Surprise flashed in those beautiful blue eyes, and her tone was a little excited, “I used a wrong word just now. It’s not ‘strange’ but ‘wonderful’. So many… It’s unbelievably wonderful. I actually got on top of a star and saw so many people… I can feel all kinds of emotions, all kinds of events, all kinds of faiths… It’s a whole new world. There is a Pillar of Faith there, which was abandoned because of the war. If I can, I would like to go to that place again, try to bring more confidence and courage to the people there and rebuild the faith that has been shattered.”
“Entering those planets with faith in the galaxy territory is the ability of the ‘Oracle’?” Chen Rui realized.
“More than that, I also have some other abilities. Besides protecting myself, I can easily do some things I want to do there. By the way, the new awareness I just gained in my head tells me that you can build a kind of ‘Galaxy Divinity Statue’, and bestow the Galaxy Divinity Statues‘ corresponding faith authority. This divinity statue will be projected to all faith places and become the center of the Pillar of Faith of this category. This will not only provide better stability and maintain the faith of this world, it can also summon a kind of [Battle Projection] power to fight together with you.”
Divinity God Statue? [Battle Projection]? Chen Rui nodded: it should be the new skill after advancing to Purple Pole Star Emperor.
“Oracle, divinity statue…” Veronica’s expression was a little weird, “This reminds me of—god? In this inherited world, you are the supreme god, then subordinate gods are assigned to control the life and faith of the whole world.. Tell me, are you…”
“I’m not god. I’m just an ordinary human who happened to get some special ‘inheritance’.” Chen Rui shook his head, “You can go anywhere you want now. When you’re tired, go back to your place of residence to rest.”
Veronica blinked and looked at him, “You have something to do? Or, you are not ready for my appearance…?”
“I’m sorry,” Chen Rui could only smile bitterly at women’s sensitivity, “I will try my best to spend time with you in the future.”
“Don’t say ‘sorry’. Never again. It’s like, I won’t say ‘thank you’ to you anymore.” Veronica smiled slightly, “That’s my only request.”
Chen Rui looked at the gentle gaze that seemed to be all-encompassing. For some reason, he felt a little envious of the ‘Little Arthur’ who had met this woman in the beginning.
“I promise you.”
Veronica gave him a deep look, flickered, and disappeared into the Tower of Faith.
