“This is why. Is this your consciousness? It actually gave me a feeling of “territory”. This is interesting.” Glorfin took a look at his long-lost body. “It’s just that no matter how strong your will is, you’re just a Demon King. The Demon Overlord strength is by no means what you can imagine right now… It’s better that I can use my body here. Let me put an end to your last persistence.”
Glorfin opened his hand and a pale yellow light rushed toward Chen Rui with a whistling sound. It penetrated easily, but Glorfin’s smirk instantly solidified on his face. Such mental attack that was enough to destroy a Demon Emperor actually became useless on this little “Demon King”.
Glorfin launched a series of attacks with disbelief, but none worked.
Glorfin’s attack was ineffective, which reassured Chen Rui’s guess in his mind. The “booting screen” of the Super System wasn’t just a display but an actual territory of consciousness. Unless someone was strong enough to destroy the entire territory, otherwise, nothing could hurt him as the master here!
The initial red cloud had become a fiery giant sphere. Perhaps it could be described as a planet. More precisely, the fiery red planet that was shining bright light was a star; while those that rotated by themselves and revoluted around the star were the planets.
The entire Super System’s territory is a galaxy!
Chen Rui seemed to have a realization. Star Collector, Star Leader, 1 Star Evolution, 2 Star Evolution… These increasing evolutionary level is like the birth process of a galaxy!
The status bar in the Galaxy Divinity Temple showed:
Title: Star Tamer
Evolution Level: 3 Stars
Experience Value: 0
Aura Value: 1.231 million
Comprehensive Strength Assessment: C-
Does C- represent the early stage? It seems that even the details have been adjusted. By the way, since it was “star collecting” and “star leading”, now that the galaxy has formed, can I actually start “star taming”?
Chen Rui’s thought changed and expanded his consciousness. At this place, his willpower seemed to have amplified several times. It could cover the entire galaxy. He could clearly feel the details of each planet, including the biggest and hottest “sun”. Even the change of every dust in the space could be sensed from his mental feedback.
There was a mysterious law hidden in the rotation and trajectory of the planet. However, Chen Rui just came into contact with this aspect, so he wasn’t able to comprehend it at that moment. The most important thing now was to destroy Glorfin.
It was just that he had just evolved into Star Tamer, so he couldn’t change the orbit or position of the planet like he was controlling an actual territory. Otherwise, if he could move Glorfin near the star, he must be able to use that terrifying power to burn Glorfin into ashes.
Although Glorfin couldn’t hurt him now, he couldn’t eliminate this intruder with Demon Overlord- level willpower at once.
He didn’t know why the previous notification for <Aura Conversion> never appear again. At that time, the system notification rang: Unknown spiritual life is found and cannot be converted into aura. Do you want to activate Star Devouring mode?
Chen Rui immediately confirmed, “Activate”
“The Star Devouring mode has been activated. This mode requires the conscious control of Star Tamer or higher Star Evolution.”
Glorfin’s series of fierce attacks were ineffective. Suddenly, he felt that the surrounding space began to change. The stars and planets disappeared instantly; the central space was distorted, gradually forming a strange black hole.
This black hole was bottomless. It seemed to have an immensely strong attractive power. Even the light of the power that Glorfin just exerted was sucked into it.
Chen Rui was surprised as he didn’t expect the Star Devouring mode would be a black hole. A black hole is an astronomical body with extremely strong gravitational pull, a bottomless hole in the universe. Once any matter falls into it, it can no longer escape even light is no exception. Originally, black hole can’t be directly observed, but in this territory, black hole have a sense of materialization, but what hadn’t changed was that powerful devouring ability.
As prompted by the system, Chen Rui could integrate his consciousness into the black hole to control the black hole to devour Glorfin’s strength.
Although Glorfin’s body was still suspended in the air, he felt that his strength and soul were flowing quickly sucked toward the black hole involuntarily. In this way, it wouldn’t be long before his consciousness being completely devoured and destroyed.
“Using a devouring skill in front of the Gluttony Royal Family? Hmph! You are overestimating yourself!” Glorfin opened his mouth and a white gas shrouded around the black hole. That was one of the bloodline talents of the Beelzebub Royal Family, <Devour>.
However, when the white gas was close to the black hole, it was only in a deadlock for a moment before it was completely devoured by the black hole. The devoured white gas was a concentration of Glorfin’s mind, so he suffered a big loss. His heart was even more frightened: Fuck, what kind of territory’s power is this? I’ve never encountered such a weird territory that can devour the white gas instead!
Glorfin shouted and an armor-like light appeared on his body as he cast the strongest earth single-target defense magic, <Steel Armor>. Yet, it was still unable to block the force of devour. He extended both his hands and there seemed to be some kind of violent tremor around his body within 100 meters. It was the most advanced AoE magic of the earth element, <Destructive Shockwave>. However, regardless of what talent or magic he cast, it couldn’t destroy the blackhole nor stop his body’s strength from disappearing.
Glorfin felt that his spirit had been devoured by nearly one-third. In shock, he exerted his full willpower and a mask suddenly appeared on his face. He was immediately overjoyed, “I can actually summon the “God-Eating Mask” here! Let me show you the true power of one of the seven artifacts.”
The mask emitted a faint yellow light. Although the black hole was still devouring the light, the speed suddenly slowed down and the entire space even began to distort slightly. There seemed to be a sign of collapsing. Chen Rui frowned, strengthened his spirit output and the devouring rate was indeed accelerated.
Glorfin exerted the “God-Eating Mask” yet he could only hold up to that scary devouring force. He was shocked as his Demon Overlord’s consciousness combined with the power of artifact were actually still at a disadvantage!
Right now, I can only continue to exert the power of the artifact to destroy this territory!
The yellow light of the “God-Eating Mask” shone brightly and the space began to tremble and distort. Occasionally, there were collapses, but the black hole’s devour still continued.
The artifact’s power was truly extraordinary. Chen Rui felt a strong mental suppression overwhelming him like a huge wave. With a slight distraction, his will might collapse at any time. Fortunately, they were in the Super System’s territory. If this were reality, Demon Overlord with artifact could crush him with one single blow.
The Star Devouring mode was an active mode that required conscious control. In other words, Chen Rui must remain conscious. Otherwise, the black hole’s devour would stop and Glorfin might even occupy his entire consciousness. Therefore, although Chen Rui was facing strong pressure from the artifact, he persisted unwaveringly with his body burning in black flame.
Glorfin, whose life and power were constantly being devoured had no way out now. He no longer wanted any host. He only hoped to leave this damn “territory” as soon as possible. If he had known this, he would rather choose the female Great Demon or even the tauren!
He wasn’t sure how long had passed. Glorfin’s body who was at the opposite had become quite thin and the yellow light of the “God-Eating Mask” had also dimmed. Chen Rui felt that his consciousness began to blur, but he endured it and maintained the operation of Star Devouring mode.
I have to persist!
Until Glorfin is completely eliminated!
In the Earth Palace, the crystals on the ground had become quite thin and the color had also changed from pale yellow to transparent. Delong, Sog and others had freed themselves from the Soul-Eating Territory that lost its power. A few powerhouses surrounded Chen Rui and kept a certain distance while staring at the “God-Eating Mask” with vigilance.
The Chief Tauren Delong wanted to remove the mask from Chen Rui’s face, but before he could get close, he was repelled by a strange power. Suddenly, Chen Rui’s standing body collapsed and everyone was taken aback.
The elite earth elemental, Sog slowly approached. After hesitating for a moment, he clenched his teeth and raised his fist. Delong’s action was quick, so he quickly stopped Sog and asked, “What are you doing?”
As soon as that was said, several Demon King-level taurens immediately stood in front of Chen Rui and looked at the few earth elementals around them cautiously. As they couldn’t understand each others’ language, they seemed hostile at once.
Sog’s hand was shaking. Actually, his heart was also very contradictory. It was Chen Rui who dispelled the control on him and they once fought alongside each other. However, this friend had now been covered with the “God-Eating Mask”. Once he was awake, he would most likely be that horrifying Glorfin.
Although Chen Rui only had Demon King-level strength, with that scary mask there and the Demon Overlord-level consciousness, along with the large amount of demonic flies and controlled earth elementals outside, no one was certain what danger would they encounter.
‘Stop! Sog.” That voice made Sog immediately let go of his struggle. It was the Earth Elemental King who spoke. This king who had been controlled for 400 years finally recovered his own consciousness and stood up slowly after the mask was detached.
“My king.” It was Sog’s first time in these few centuries to hear the Earth Elemental King’s voice in normal condition, so he was very excited. He walked over and crossed his arms to bow. When he thought that the king’s elemental heart had been crushed, he couldn’t help but feel grief and indignation.
“Sog, we, the earth elementals are very revengeful. All the enemies who dare to offend us will be destroyed, but we’re also a race that remembers kindness. We never direct hostility toward our friends. Did you forget about that?”
Sog lowered his head in ashamed, “I didn’t forget. Actually, I couldn’t do it either. Chen Rui isn’t only my friend and benefactor but also the benefactor of all earth elementals. However, I’m afraid that he will become that fearful Glorfin when he wakes up. After killing him, I will self-destruct to express my apology.”
“Killing him and destroying yourself only represent your own will. You can’t force your will on your friends, let alone…” The Earth Elemental King shook his head, “Haven’t you realized? Sog, the nearby demonic flies have already been wiped out automatically and our people who have been confused for years are slowly regaining consciousness.”
Sog was overjoyed and immediately responded, “My king, what you meant was…” The Earth Elemental King nodded and praised, “It seems that although our friend isn’t strong enough now, he has amazing abilities.”
It wasn’t just the mutated earth elementals that were regaining their self-awareness, but even those crystallized statues along the way were slowly recovering and rejuvenating.
