Chen Rui calmly looked at Vantis, who was delivering a lengthy speech on the stage. His hand hidden in the white robe silently drew one after another mysterious symbol.
These trajectories would trigger some changes in the entire spirit gathering magic circle, which was precisely what he had devotedly set up in the Holy Glory Platform these days.
Python once said that the spirit gathering magic circle contained the power of Raphael himself and the huge mind power of the Holy Light Mountain. There was almost no flaw. The only chance was when the spirit gathering magic circle was fully activated and the power was the weakest. This meant using the reverse runes method to break the confinement at the canonization ceremony.
It was definitely not an easy task that could be done in a short period of time, and there was still one big puzzle – How could it all be done under Raphael’s eyes?
So, today Raphael was ‘absent’.
This was of course another arrangement by Chen Rui. For Raphael, if there was anything more important than the canonization ceremony of the Holy Child right now, it was the… Light Divinity Temple!
At this moment, Raphael was in front of the Light Divinity Temple. In the inscription magic circle in front of him, a purple figure could be faintly seen.
Raphael’s face was filled with anger that couldn’t be concealed— What is the origin of this mysterious man? What method did he use to silently pass through so many powerful protections all the way to the Light Divinity Temple?
If the protective magic circles of Light Divinity Temple didn’t have a special sense with the 3 archangels themselves, it is likely that the Book of Creation has been stolen by this enemy! This is the whole Holy Church… no! It is the biggest reliance of the 3 archangels to steal the faith and step into God!
When Python brought people to invade the hall and stole the Wind Badge under Michael’s watch, Raphael was very dissatisfied with the leader of the 3 archangels – claiming to be the ‘person closest to God’. It was even in this Holy Light In Mountain. Although Python had been severely injured and the other party had an artifact like the Tower of Glory, in the end, he still let them escape successfully. It was unjustifiable no matter what.
Now that Michael was asleep and when Raphael was in control of the Holy Light Mountain, another damn junior intruded the temple again. The protective inscription that he and Michael had set up together along the way was like non-existing! If anything went wrong with the Book of Creation, it would all be over.
Therefore, Raphael, who was supposed to ‘come’ to preside over the canonization ceremony, did not hesitate to appear at the Light Divinity Temple at the top of the Holy Light Mountain. He happened to see the figure covered in purple light trying to open the enchantment in front of the Light Divinity Temple. The speed and proficiency of the cracking made Raphael horrified – It was only a short moment from his sense of change to his arrival at the temple, yet the enchantment actually had been cracked nearly by half!
“Court death!” Raphael shouted furiously. The purple figure didn’t look back. He just waved his hand, and the runes around Raphael actually changed strangely. Innumerable rays of light appeared and surrounded Raphael.
Raphael was shocked. He believed that he was the top person in ancient runes. Even Michael was inferior to him in this aspect, but this mysterious purple figure not only broke the inscription array he had set up in such a short period of time, he actually could reflect some power back to him!
Raphael felt that the inscription attribute that was reflected was only able to temporarily limit his mobility, but the damage was quite limited, so he simply didn’t avoid it. A silver-white long stick appeared in his hand as he pointed toward the purple figure.
The space pointed by the long stick was instantly torn apart, extending toward the purple figure. The space here was anything but ordinary. The solidification was 100 times that of ordinary space, and a crack of this magnitude was already quite terrifying.
To Raphael’s surprise, the purple figure was still moving forward in a strange way. This method was like a snake. He used the special inscription array along the way to block Raphael’s blow.
Raphael was an expert. Naturally, he noticed that this person was very familiar with this type of inscription array and even the inscription array around the Light Divinity Temple as if he had gone through thousands of scrutiny and rehearsal. Although many actions were made hastily, he almost calculated all subsequent changes in the array. However, Raphael’s might was more than that. With a shake of the long stick, the blocking inscription power turned into nothingness, and the power reached the purple figure in the blink of an eye.
The purple figure did not have the time to dodge. The moment the might contacted the figure, the figure suddenly became ‘transparent’. Yes, it was transparent.
Just when Raphael was stunned, the inscription drawn nearby had already bound him. At the same time, a strange thing happened. The tearing of the space actually turned around the transparent figure before shooting back at Raphael.
Originally, the breath of this figure had reached the level of Pseudo-God, but in the eyes of a peak stage Pseudo-God like Raphael, he was nothing. He could be severely damaged or even killed with a single blow. But the archangel never dreamed that this man could actually reflect his attack!
At this time, Raphael was bound by the inscription and temporarily lost his dodging ability. He only had time to swerve. A gruesome wound suddenly appeared on his body surface, causing countless fine cracks. Under the action of a strange power, it still continued to spread around. It could be seen that this blow was indeed shocking.
However, with a flash of white light, the spreading wound immediately began to heal without even a drop of blood. It was the special attribute of Raphael’s [Body of Light Recovery], which was comparable to Sariel’s [Body of Moon Soul], which was an astonishing healing ability. The self-healing power was almost immortal.
Of course, even Dodo’s real immortal was not without limits, but with Raphael’s current strength, plus the 3 archangels were in the same front, unless the Abyss descended, it was difficult for anyone to force him to some desperate level. Especially at the home court of the Holy Light Mountain.
Raphael attacked the mysterious man, and the attack was reflected by the mysterious man, but Raphael was not damaged at all. It seemed like a stalemate, but in fact, Raphael had lost.
This made Raphael, who had always been arrogant and smug, feel ashamed. He held the long stick tightly, and all the surrounding inscriptions turned into powder. When he was about to smash the intruder to pieces, he suddenly found that the enemy had disappeared!
All the nearby inscription arrays were chaotic. It was obvious that the enemy did not leave, but used some kind of hidden ‘might’, hiding in the chaotic magic circles to launch an ambush.
Although the attack just now made Raphael infuriate, he also began to take the mysterious intruder seriously. What surprised Raphael the most was that this person could actually use the arrays he set up to confuse him – This is not as simple as being good at ancient runes. He must be very familiar with this forbidden area. It is obviously a conspiracy that has been prepared for a long time!
Being able to be so familiar with the Light Divinity Temple area under the eyes of 3 archangels…
A traitor? Raphael’s mind suddenly came up with a term, but the top priority was to find out the mysterious person as soon as possible.
This abominable intruder had limited strength. To destroy it was no different from stepping on a mouse, but now this ‘rat’ was hiding in Raphael’s ‘home’. He must first move away every piece of furniture that could be a place of hiding to find it.
Raphael suppressed the rage in his mind as he drew mysterious symbols with his long stick. He calmly repaired and checked the rune arrays along the way while extending his senses to search for the whereabouts of the intruder. Although this checking method was the slowest method, it was the most effective method to deal with the guy whose methods and whereabouts were quite mysterious. At that time, the enemy would have nowhere to hide. By then, it was not too late to choose torture or annihilation.
Raphael patiently searched the Hall of Light for the mysterious intruder while Pope Vantis, who had been waiting for Raphael to ‘descend’ on the Holy Blessing Hall’s Cloud Platform, could no longer delay anymore.
However, in the presence of so many heavyweight guests, the canonization ceremony couldn’t get stuck, so Vantis decided to reverse the order of Raphael’s canonization of the Holy Child and Arthur’s conversion of the knights in order to wait for Raphael’s arrival.
When Vantis announced, ‘Arthur’ would show the blessings bestowed by the Light God in public. When he converted 100 Divinity Temple Knights into light-element physiques, many of the following guests whispered. The light-element physique could enhance the training of light element power. The effect of being buffed by treatment or light element magic would also be doubled. If one could go further and become the [Body of Light Blessing], it was said that one could also become a holy apprentice under the 3 archangels and possess the blessing power granted by the 3 archangels.
The light-element physique was generally divided into innate and acquired. In terms of innate, only the royal family of the Holy Light City and Holy Empire would give birth to the corresponding bloodline (Holy Empire was mainly the effect of holy relic power); and the conversion must go through a special ‘divine power’ ceremony, presided over by Pope Vantis himself. Normally, the location was under the 3 Snow Dallet Holy Trees at the Snowy Summit Stage of the Divinity Seal Summit. The power of the holy tree was also a key.
Now ‘Arthur’ could actually activate ‘holy power’ on the Holy Glory Platform, converting as many as 100 Divinity Temple Knights at the same time was simply unbelievable. But in this case, Vantis, who was the pope, would not speak thoughtlessly, so ‘Arthur’ should have a certain degree of certainty. This also proved from another angle that ‘Arthur’ was the next pope!
100 Divinity Temple Knights entered the venue neatly, lined up in a formation, and stood under the platform.
Vantis made an eye gesture at Chen Rui, and Chen Rui nodded slightly ‘knowingly’ as he slowly walked toward the ‘red circle’ of the Holy Glory Platform.
The ‘red circle’ had now been whitewashed as a small platform full of sacred breath. Chen Rui’s hands hidden in the white robe were still moving quietly. Although he had rehearsed these movements thousands of times in his mind beforehand, this was related to the reversal of the entire spirit gathering magic circle, which was the most crucial point in rescuing Tiffany. Time was equally important to him, so he did not dare to relax.
Walking to the platform, Chen Rui bowed slightly to the guests around him. His eyes swept over Lex the Great and Freya, and a crystal white crown suddenly appeared on his head. Many seniors had recognized that it was the Crown of Thorns, 1 of the 3 holy relics of light, that could activate the legendary power of [Divine Blessing].
After this crown appeared, Chen Rui’s breath became full of holiness. The hands hidden in the white robe were also taken out, and the countless faint symbols in the light charging in the hands drifted away. It disappeared and submerged into the nearby space.
Many people had noticed that ‘Arthur’ actually had the strength of a Saint!
Before this, the former Royal Highness Prince’s strength is at most a Warrior!
In just a few months, Warrior became Saint. This… can only be explained by ‘God’s favor’.
Without waiting for these people to think about it, the surrounding power breath had changed under the guidance of the gesture of ‘Arthur’. The huge and vast breath quickly condensed. This kind of power was beyond imagination; it was obviously not ‘Arthur’s’ own power.
Everyone thought that Chen Rui’s hand gesture was for activating the conversion ceremony. Although they recognized that ‘Arthur’ activated the power of ancient runes, even the 8-winged angel Camael next to Kilanya didn’t care. Camael knew that this spirit gathering magic circle was created by Raphael himself, and that ‘Arthur’ was the person Raphael valued most now. These must be the secret technique taught by Raphael to activate the magic circle to buff the power of [Divine Blessing].
Only Holy Lady Eudora felt that something was amiss because ‘Arthur’ did not have these ‘extra’ actions during the usual ‘rehearsal’. Although it might be related to Raphael, for some reason, an ominous hunch in her mind was getting stronger and stronger.
TL: Would Eudora stop him in front of so many people? Who is that purple figure? An avatar or Python herself?
