If it was just an ordinary intruder, even if this hexagram array couldn’t destroy the intruders, it could still effectively play its defensive role. However, the defensive array encountered one of the 7 Demon Realm’s strongest artifacts. The white gas of the “God-Eating Mask” spread wide and the power of the hexagram array was all swallowed up. Not only that, the weakened light beam also began to respond by producing plumes of white smoke that mixed with the white smoke of the “God-Eating Mask” to produce a fusional resonance. This time, it was no longer an intermittent feeling, but a strong resonance like never before.
After a while, the white smoke of the “God-Eating Mask” had withdrawn. Not only the swallowing white smoke was withdrawn, but also the strange light that mixed in the smoke. After the strange light was kept into the mask, Chen Rui felt burning on his face. The entire light beam and the hexagram array began to flicker violently. Then, the entire place was shaking as if something was broken, and he had somehow gone outside the fountain already.
Suddenly, a strong sense of crisis emerged in his heart. He immediately looked up and saw a figure in a long dress floating in the air with a pair of black wings at her back. A pair of cold eyes were staring at him while the beautiful purple irises radiated a murderousness that could pierce into his bone.
“Princess Royal!” Chen Rui shivered and blurted out, only to find that his voice was suddenly lost, as if his voice was blocked by the increasingly hot mask. He tried to communicate with Shea through <Analytical Eyes>, but <Analytical Eyes> didn’t seem to work on demons. When Chen Rui touched the mask on his face, the forehead part was completely restored. In other words, the “God-Eating Mask” was now a complete artifact!
Although <Analytical Eyes> couldn’t communicate, its display was still effective: Race: Pride Royal Family; Comprehensive Strength Assessment: B+!
B+, the peak of Great Demon King!
Shea’s body instantly ignited a scary black flame. This wasn’t the enhancing flame of the Great Demon race but one of the 3 bloodline talents of the Lucifer Royal Family, <Dark Flame>.
“Beelzebub Royal Family!” The frosty voice contained boundless killing intentions. She waved her fingers and the black flame rolled toward Chen Rui like a huge net. Her first move was to kill. Although the color of the flame was similar to Nirvana’s Flame, their properties were completely opposite. The flame of <Nirvana> represented vitality; whereas <Dark Flame> represented destruction and death!
The thing on this man’s face should be the Gluttony Royal Family’s artifact, the “God-Eating Mask”. Shea was furious at this moment. The Beelzebub Royal Family was the strongest enemy of Lucifer Royal Family and Beelzebub’s God Eater Empire was destroyed by the Fallen Angel Empire. 400 years ago, the Beelzebub Royal Family caused trouble in the Dark Moon in an attempt to make a comeback. Yet, they were eliminated by the Lord of Midnight Sun fortunately. After disappearing for 400 years, they actually appeared again in the Dark Moon. What made Shea even angrier was that this person’s “God-Eating Mask” was already complete. In other words, he must have entered the room that sealed the fragment! There was not only the artifact fragment but also her biggest secret in the room! She could never forgive him! Regardless of the reasons, she had to crush this enemy into pieces!
Initially, at such timing, if Chen Rui immediately opened the mask and confessed everything, there might still be room to turn things around. Yet, the “God-Eating Mask” couldn’t be removed at all; he couldn’t even speak now.
It was unexplainable.
If Chen Rui was truly a Beelzebub Royal Family, he could still rely on the artifact to compete against the Great Demon King-level, Shea and then try to explain. However, he was just a fake one, so he couldn’t manifest the true strength of the artifact. Besides, the mask was getting hotter. He didn’t know what could go wrong. Therefore, there was no other choice but to escape.
As Shea’s <Dark Flame> was about to engulf the Beelzebub Royal Family that suddenly appeared, the enemy unexpectedly suddenly moved out of the flame range as if it was Great Demon’s <Teleportation>, causing the <Dark Flame> hit the ground. A large area of scorch immediately appeared. All the water in the bath was evaporated instantly.
Chen Rui dodged <Dark Flame> at last second. He felt that he couldn’t defend that horrific strength at all. “Dark Will” had already appeared on the finger in his sleeve. However, this Lucifer Royal Family’s secret treasure was given to him by Shea. If he used it rashly, the possibility of being exposed was quite high. There were Shea’s secrets in the hidden room. Now that she was in extreme anger, he’d definitely be in huge trouble if he was exposed.
Shea frowned slightly. Since when the Beelzebub Royal Family can use the <Teleportation> skill? Yet, the Great Demon’s <Teleportation> can’t play much of a role in an actual battle between powerhouses. On the surface, this guy only looked like an Intermediate Demon (effect of <Breath Holding>), but he is at least a Demon King. He must be using some secret method to conceal his strength, but his actual strength shouldn’t exceed Demon King. Otherwise, with the power of the artifact, he would’ve attacked me actively already.
<Dark Flame> is effective against the Beelzebub Royal Family’s <Devour>. Along with the enhancement and offensive power of <Holy Wings>, I must destroy this enemy. The moment Shea thought of that, the black wings on her body faintly emitted a sacred light. It mixed into the <Dark Flame>, forming the shape of a python that rushed toward Chen Rui with an astonishing momentum. Under normal circumstances, ordinary people could only use 1 type of talent at once, but Shea could combine two offensive talents and use them simultaneously, so she was quite talented.
The difference in their strength was a whole level. Chen Rui had a creepy sense of crisis, but it was too late to dodge. However, Shea’s attack was no faster than the speed of his consciousness. The python hit on a blue, translucent round dome while Chen Rui in the dome stood still. The python seemed to be alive and wrapped around the protective cover, wanting to tangle and smash the whole dome and the caster within into pieces. Even the palace had powerful defensive magic arrays, it began to tremble. The ground even cracked endlessly.
The protective cover couldn’t stand the pressure and shattered while the figure in the center was completely engulfed by the python.
Shea frowned and looked in the other direction. The moment the python broke the shield, the figure had once again teleported to a safe place.
Continuous dual <Teleportation>! Even Great Demon doesn’t have such talent. Also, the defense skill doesn’t seem like some kind of magic. The Beelzebub Royal Family reappearing on the stage after 400 years is definitely planned with careful preparation.
Although this enemy is of average strength, his talent is magical. He must be the heir of the Beelzebub Royal Family. The “God-Eating Mask” must have just recovered, so he cannot exert its power. If I don’t eliminate this guy now, I might never have a chance anymore!
When Shea was about to launch the python again, she felt a tremor on the ground. Then, several huge vines burst out of the ground and quickly extended like the tentacles of some soft-bodied demonic beasts to attack her at all directions. The momentum was shocking.
Shea frowned and her fists were thrown toward the air. The vines shattered as if they were withered. As soon as she was held back by the vines, the enemy fled quickly. The figure had already disappeared behind the palace. His speed was beyond her imagination.
Shea shouted and the <Dark Flame> on her body blazed higher. The vines were scorched. As her body flickered, she had already appeared above the palace. However, the guy had disappeared without a trace.
He disappeared instantly? Did he hide in the palace? Shea expanded her all her senses with disbelief yet she found nothing, as if the enemy evaporated out of thin air. Due to the restoration of artifact, this opponent couldn’t use the 3 talents of the Beelzebub Royal Family. However, the rest of his abilities emerged endlessly, so he must have activated some strange ability to escape just now.
For an opponent with such horrifying potential, once he grows, the consequences are unimaginable. For 400 years, the fragment of the “God-Eating Mask” is actually lost in my hands. Also, the biggest secret in my heart is likely to have been discerned by this archrival, as if he saw me naked. It’s unbearable. (Shea didn’t know that even her naked body was seen.)
“Beelzebub Royal Family!” Shea’s furious voice echoed across the entire palace. Due to their strength and the inner courtyard prohibition, the palace guards only arrived at that moment. Hearing Shea’s furious yell, they looked at each other with surprise as in their impression, it had been a long time since Princess Royal lost control.
Chen Rui didn’t expect this trip would cause such a huge misunderstanding with Shea. The short battle just now was actually just between a few breathes. Yet, he already went all out by using <Teleportation>, <Shield>, gluttonous vine and Stridebug; he almost used all of his skills. Finally, he used a building as a cover to barely escape with “Dark Will”. It seemed that the Great Demon King level was really not something he could handle now. He felt like he took several turns at the hell’s gate. After teleporting, as he had just stood firmly,, the temperature of the mask on his face had risen to a peak before he could clearly see the scene before him.
This <Teleportation> was like a fuse that ignited the expanding power on the mask. Chen Rui only felt a loud “Poom!” in his head, then numerous scary sounds roared at the same time as if there were thousands of wraith howling at his ears. Not only that, all of the terrifying power rushed toward his consciousness. If this continued, his entire mental state would collapse in a few seconds!
Facing more troubles when the situation is bad enough. This damn mask actually causes such trouble at such timing!
Chen Rui activated “Star Devouring” mode without hesitation. The Super System’s solar system instantly became a blackhole that devoured infinitely. This simulation that imitated the universe was indeed strong. Countless horrifying forces was sucked into the blackhole, and they were completely devoured finally. Chen Rui didn’t know what impact these forces, including Glorfin’s consciousness would bring after being devoured by “Star Devouring”, but it was the only way to save his life at the moment.
After devouring these forces, the heat on the “God-Eating Mask” gradually faded away. After the Star Devouring mode was restored to the original solar system, another notification sounded in the brain: Unknown metadata found. Activate <Deep Analysis>?
Unknown metadata? It must be related to the mystery of the mask. Chen Rui chose to activate without hesitation. <Deep Analysis> was different from studying by collecting information through vision and hearing. It was performed automatically in the brain. He didn’t need to keep his eye on the target.
Chen Rui didn’t waste any time. The battle in the palace would surely trigger Shea’s full-scale manhunt. At present, he must find a safe place to hide. He was now in a large courtyard with a palace-like structure, but it wasn’t the royal palace that Chen Rui was familiar with.
Regardless of the scale or details of the layout, this courtyard was considered to be a very high class in the Dark Moon City.
After fully expanding his senses, he noticed that there seemed to be a faint moan of a man and woman and some kind of colliding sound from a room in the courtyard.
It seemed that under the influence of the Pervert God Mask, even “Dark Will” had become a Pervert God Ring and picked such a good place to teleport. As someone with experience, Chen Rui was no stranger to this kind of sound. However, it was purely a coincidence that he peeped on Shea while she was showering. Now, he had no mood to peek into the privacy of others for doing their “business”.
At that moment, the man’s voice suddenly became louder. It sounded familiar. The content was nothing more but the rude language used to vent during “special moments”. Chen Rui remembered that this voice was actually Joseph! Is this Joseph’s base camp?
It can’t be so coincidental right!
