Facing immortal enemies, Sog and Tag had exhausted more than half of its strength. After hearing Chen Rui’s words, they launched their fiercest attack without hesitation. Under that joint fierce attack, they destroyed the spirit-devouring demonic flies once again.
At the moment when the demon flies broke into crystals, Dodo’s mouth suddenly became large. Under Chen Rui’s command, he quickly swallowed many fragments with F and E strength. Before the fragments were combined again, Dodo stopped swallowing.
The spirit-devouring demonic flies were assembled into their original shape again, but their bodies were already one size smaller and their strengths were obviously weakened. It seemed that this method was quite effective, so Sog and Tag were somehow ecstatic.
Under this continuous attrition tactic, the strength of the spirit-devouring demonic fly was getting weaker and weaker. As imagined, it couldn’t escape from the area of the fountain of life. It could only watch its body being eaten away. Its strength also downgraded from Great Demon King. Eventually, it was swallowed entirely by Dodo when it reached Higher Demon.
An unwilling scream ended in Dodo’s closed mouth. Seeing slime’s bitter face and the slight explosion seemingly coming from the onion-head, Chen Rui asked with concern, “Do you feel abnormal?”
Slime burped and his answer made Chen Rui kind of speechless, “It tastes too bad.”
After the spirit-devouring demonic fly was destroyed, water began to come out from the center of the pit and it stopped after spreading to a range of nearly two meters. It seemed to be affected by the rapidly blinking crystal light on the surrounding ground. Those crystal lights began to condense into crystals and gradually expanding, whereas the area of the fountain of life gradually shrank. Once the fountain of life was completely covered, the troublesome spirit-devouring demonic fly was likely to be born again.
However, Chen Rui didn’t give the crystals any time. Before the fountain of life “dried up” again, the strange mist released by his hand covered the puddle and kept it in the galaxy garden. The ever-growing crystals seemed to have lost its energy and they stopped glittering suddenly . The rapid flickering light became dim slowly.
The third fountain of life is acquired!
The moment when the fountain of life was kept into the galaxy garden, a growl full of anger and murderous intentions could be heard from the centre of the Earth Palace, spreading far away. The loose stalagmite at the ceiling of the underground world was shook by the voice and fell down one after another.
Like the strong tremor that constantly appeared on the ground, the controlled earth elementals nearby had no response toward this roar and continued moving forward like walking deads. The entire Earth Palace was actually moving!
Although the troll’s fountain of life was only a small piece, it spread to the same size as the other two fountains after it was kept into the galaxy garden. It seemed like the galaxy garden had a magical effect of restoring the fountain of life at its maximum capacity.
“Chen Rui, you truly is a magical guy. You did such a great job!”
After leaving the Troll’s Lair, Sog praised Chen Rui’s ability while Tag kept nodding. If it weren’t for Chen Rui’s successful strategy, they definitely couldn’t defeat that immortal, giant demon fly with all their strengths. Now, they even successfully retrieved the fountain of life.
“You two are the one that are truly amazing. I couldn’t have done it alone.” Chen Rui had been thinking about the meaning of “clone” shown in <Analytical Eyes>. He was being humble, and his footsteps suddenly stopped.
“My friends, I suddenly have a crazy idea. I wonder if you are willing to take risks with me?”
As soon as Sog and Tag turned around, they saw that Chen Rui’s body began to change in some way and actually became the look of an earth elemental. The two elite earth elementals were surprised.
“Oh right, there’s one detail that needs to be changed.” The white light in the eyes of the earth elemental turned pale yellow, becoming a “mutated species”.
Neither Sog nor Tag were stupid. They saw determination in each other’s eyes.
In the Tauren’s Den, Athena gently touched the dagger in her hand. This dagger was very small and it was wrapped with a hydra’s leather scabbard. Although it wasn’t really delicate, in Athena’s heart, this was the best dagger in the entire Demon Realm. It wasn’t because it was made by dark star iron but because it was hand-crafted by Chen Rui and was given to her just like a guardian’s sword. The difference was that this dagger had an extraordinary significance to Athena.
She did not tell Chen Rui this significance, but Athena was kind of regretful now. She wasn’t sure whether it was because of Chen Rui leaving, there was always a sense of uneasiness in her heart, as if she never had the opportunity to propose to him again.
Athena shook her head vigorously and removed this uneasy feeling from her head. Then, she took a bowl of water from Lysa, smiled and nodded at her.
Lysa nodded her head to show courtesy. She already knew the close relationship between Athena and Chen Rui, who saved the medusa tribe. The initial hostility was long gone, and she seemed very friendly.
Seeing Lysa’s bulging abdomen, Athena suddenly thought of a guy saying “future family member expansion plan” the other day and her face blushed inexplicably.
Chen Rui was looking at the situation in shock at the moment, as well as two elite earth elementals.
Initially, Chen Rui proposed a very risky plan which was sneaking directly into the Earth Realm to retrieve the last fountain of life!
However, when the three arrived at the Earth Realm after rushing for days and nights, they were stunned by the scene in front of them. There were huge destruction trail along the way. The passages that were initially small were expanded destructively as if it was caused by a huge object passing through.
In the face of this completely different home, Tag and Sog quickly took Chen Rui all the way to the source of destruction. Strangely, the number of earth elementals and demon flies along the way were far less than expected. When they found the starting point of the shocking trail, both elite earth elementals were stunned.
In the center of Earth Realm, a deep pit with a diameter of more than 100 meters appeared. This should be the place where the Earth Elemental King was located, the Earth Palace!
The Earth Palace suddenly disappeared!
Judging from the deep pit, this palace seemed to have been dug out from nowhere. Associating to the exaggerated trail along the way, three of them suddenly realized that the Earth Palace was moving!
These mutated earth elementals actually dug out the Earth Palace and…
Chen Rui thought of the scariest thing, which was the destination of the Earth Palace’s movement! If it was the Troll’s Lair, then they would’ve definitely ran into them halfway. Therefore, it seemed that the place that Glorfin was heading could only be…
At that point, the demon flies finally detected something was wrong. They surrounded them with a few mutated earth elementals.
Although these enemies’ strength wasn’t that strong for the elite earth elementals party and it was also less dangerous than their previous estimation, Chen Rui was unprecedentedly anxious at that moment.
Tag subdued a mutated earth elemental and Chen Rui quickly cast <Aura Conversion>. After this earth elementals was conscious, he assured the most worried assumption. The destination of the Earth Palace was the tauren’s and medusa’s tribes! Besides, they’ve already been moving for almost 4 days!
Tauren, medusa and earth elementals are all there! Also, Athena!
“Fuck! Let’s go to the fountain of life first! Then, we’ll hurry back!”
Chen Rui shouted loudly. Originally, Sog and Tag wanted Chen Rui to restore more earth elementals. However, they also knew that the current situation was urgent. Thus, they quickly opened up a path toward the fountain of life with all their strength.
With the experience at the Troll’s Lair, it was relatively easier to deal with spirit-devouring demonic flies this time. It was just the surrounding earth elementals made Sog and Tag felt difficult as they didn’t want to accidentally injured the earth elementals. After some hard work, the 4th fountain of life was finally kept into the galaxy garden successfully.
It was just that Dodo, who once again swallowed the spirit-devouring demonic fly, seemed a bit abnormal. He involuntarily twisted and an explosive sound could be heard from his transparent brain from time to time. This “symptom” was present since they left the Troll’s Lair. It was just that this time it was more serious. It was probably a side effect of digesting those crystals.
Since Dodo was a living thing, he couldn’t be stored in the storage. Thus, Chen Rui could only take out a backpack from the storage and place Dodo in there to rest. Then, he called Sog and Tag to rushed along the movement trace of the Earth Palace.
Within the Earth Palace, a furious yell sounded again. This time it was a roar containing a shrill voice like an injured beast. Powerful forces erupted one after another as if it was venting anger. The Earth Palace that was being carried suddenly paused and pressed down. In such a huge shake, the earth elementals below the palace were all crushed into the soil. Even if the earth elementals were powered by earth element, they couldn’t withstand such horrible pressure; their bodies were crushed.
On the sturdy ground of the Earth Palace, numerous huge cracks appeared around a masked figure at the center. When the palace trembled, the roof collapsed and fell, leaving only the broken pillars. The collapsed huge stones fell on the ground around it, causing a lot of damage to the earth elementals.
The Earth Elemental King was indifferent to this. He continued to roar frantically like a tyrant who treated the earth elementals ruthlessly.
After the roar disappeared, more earth elementals continued to lift the Earth Palace indifferently and walked forward while stepping on the shattered body of their companions.
Chen Rui spared no stamina and followed the 2 elite earth elementals to run along the trail. In his heart, he constantly hoped that he could catch up to the moving rate of the Earth Palace carried by the earth elementals.
According to Sog when he was conscious, Glorfin was close to fully controlling the Earth Elemental King. He was able to exert Demon Overlord-level power. This huge move forward must be to completely eliminate the taurens and medusa while occupying the fountain of life at the same time.
Glorfin must be not able to move freely, otherwise, it was unnecessary to move together with the palace so publicly. It was believed that the disappearance of spirit-devouring demonic flies’ clones had a considerable impact on Glorfin. At present, the most important thing was to catch up and tell the tauren and medusa to run away in advance. Since the fountains of life were all kept into the galaxy garden, Chen Rui himself was equivalent to a portable fountain of life. Besides, the enemy had difficulty moving, so it was possible to lead them to engage in guerilla.
The most important thing was Athena!
His beloved woman!
